Koopa Klaw is one of Bowser's special moves in Super Smash Bros. Melee. In later games, it was replaced by Flying Slam. Bowser uses this move when B Button is pressed with either left or right on Control Stick. This move has two variations, based on Bowser's distance from his opponent: if the two are far apart, he simply lashes out with his claws, knocking opponents upward, but if Bowser is close enough to his opponent, he grabs onto them, allowing him to either bite them for weak damage or throw them.
