Gordo Throw is King Dedede's side special move in Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS / Wii U, which appears to be a variation of his side special move in Super Smash Bros. Brawl, Waddle Dee Toss.

When this move is used, King Dedede will pull out a Gordo and hit it with his hammer, sending it bouncing in front of him. The Gordo can bounce up to three times and damages opponents in contact, starting at 24% and becoming progressively weaker, finally bouncing off them. It disappears shortly after hitting an enemy, or after the third bounce if no target is hit. Only one Gordo can thrown at a time; when a Gordo is already out, the attack consists of a single hammer swipe which can damage opponents. Gordos have a chance of getting stuck in any wall they hit, causing slight damage to opponents in contact. They will then disappear after a few seconds. The trajectory of the Gordo can be adjusted with the Circle Pad / Control Stick.

One custom variant that appears in both games is Topspin Gordo, which moves slowly at first, but suddenly moves much faster and farther once it bounces on the ground. However, unlike Gordo Throw, the Gordo used in this move can only bounce once. Another variant is Bouncing Gordo, which bounces back and forth and lasts longer than Gordo Throw. It also does electrical damage, although it's not as strong as the other two variants.
