The Synchro Ground-Pound[1][2][3] (alternatively spelled Synchro Ground Pound[4] and synchro ground pound[5][2]), also known as the Synchronized Ground Pound in American English and Synchronised Ground Pound in British English and formerly known as the Simultaneous Ground Pound,[6] is a variant of the Ground Pound that consists of multiple players performing a Ground Pound at the same time. The move is typically stronger than the normal Ground Pound and affects all enemies in a certain area, similar to a POW Block.

History[edit]

New Super Mario Bros. Wii[edit]

The Simultaneous Ground Pound is introduced in New Super Mario Bros. Wii, in multiplayer only. This creates a circular shockwave that quickly clears all enemies on the screen. It takes only three Simultaneous Ground Pounds to defeat Bowser prematurely in his first phase.

New Super Mario Bros. 2[edit]

The Simultaneous Ground Pound returns in New Super Mario Bros. 2, where it can be performed when Mario and Luigi ground-pound at the same time.

New Super Mario Bros. U / New Super Luigi U / New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe[edit]
