Down Tilt Attack For Quick Finisher

This move can launch an enemy off the stage with one hit if their damage is high enough. You're not left vulnerable, so it's a low-risk way to KO foes.

Use Neutral Air Attack to Connect Combo

If you land just before the final attack in Falco's midair combo, you can move straight into a neutral combo on the ground.

Down Air Attack to Meteor Enemies

Compared to Fox, the move is slow to attack and doesn't hit multiple times, but the first kick has a meteor effect.
