Spin Attack Ground

An example of a ground attack: the grounded version of Link's Spin Attack.

A ground attack is an attack made while the character is standing on the ground, as opposed to aerial attacks, which are performed while the character is airborne. Both special moves and normal attacks can be ground attacks. Some attacks behave differently when performed as ground attacks. An example of this is Link's up special move, which can be charged if performed on the ground. A few special attacks can only be performed on the ground, specifically Donkey Kong's Hand Slap and Peach's Vegetable. Super Smash Flash 2 includes a whole set of ground attacks for all characters where as Super Smash Flash is limited to three singular ground attacks, some which can be the same attack, thereby reducing the moveset possibilities of the characters.
