Donkey Kong Land III
Super Smash Bros. Ultimate
In Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, the Propellerpack is King K. Rool's up special. When used, King K. Rool equips the Propellerpack and flies upwards, where he can move horizontally. After a couple of seconds the Propelllerpack's blades slow down and he falls back downwards. When this happens, the player cannot dodge, attack, or jump until King K. Rool touches the ground, although they can still move horizontally.
