The standard Stone in Super Smash Bros. for Wii U

Stone is one of the Copy Abilities in the Kirby series and Kirby's down special move in the Super Smash Bros. series. The move is based on the Stone Change move, in that Kirby turns into one of several heavy objects upon use. When used in the air, Kirby slams the ground, damaging any opponents beneath him; in Super Smash Bros. and Super Smash Bros. Melee this move does not affect opponents when used on the ground, though starting with Super Smash Bros. Brawl any nearby opponents are damaged during the transformation. While in the stone form, Kirby is invulnerable to any attacks, though unlike in the Kirby games the transformation is temporary.

In Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS / Wii U this move is given two customizable variants: Grounding Stone and Meteor Stone. Grounding Stone has a longer transformation time but buries opponents when landing on them from in the air. Meteor Stone meteor smashes opponents that Kirby hits, but the time it takes for Kirby to turn back is increased.

In Super Smash Bros. Kirby only transforms into the standard stone that appears throughout the Kirby series. Since Super Smash Bros. Melee, Kirby can take a number of forms when using this move. Among these transformations are the standard stone block, a "100t" weight representing the 8-ton weight that also appears as a Stone transformation in the Kirby series, a Thwomp (using the Super Mario 64 design up until Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS / Wii U, in which it is updated to its modern, spiked design), a spiked ball, and a garbage block from Panel de Pon.
