Piercing Blow, formerly known as D-Down Pound, is a badge in Paper Mario and Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door. It is a counterpart to D-Down Jump. When equipped, the badge grants Mario a hammer move that costs 2 FP and ignores the enemy's defense.
In Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door, Piercing Blow can be bought from the Lovely Howz of Badges for 75 coins, and is rarely dropped after battle by Spiky Parabuzzies. It uses 1 BP. Although multiple Piercing Blow badges can be obtained, equipping more than one has no effect.
