Wizard's Foot is Ganondorf's down special move in his every appearance in the Super Smash Bros. series starting with Super Smash Bros. Melee, and is similar to Captain Falcon's Falcon Kick. When used, Ganondorf slides across the ground, kicking any opponents in his path. Opponents who are damaged by the attack get sent flying forward at a sideways angle. Although the move is more powerful, Ganondorf slows down when it hits. When it is used in the air, Ganondorf kicks down diagonally, instead of straight forward. In Super Smash Bros. Melee, the aerial move has a meteor smash effect throughout, though in Super Smash Bros. Brawl, this is limited only to the start of the move. In addition, Ganondorf creates a small shockwave when he lands, which can knock opponents into the air.
In Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS / Wii U, the Wizard's Foot has two custom variants that can be unlocked:
The first is Wizard's Dropkick, which causes Ganondorf to leap into the air and perform the midair kick. This kick gives Ganondorf much more horizontal distance, especially when used in the air, but it deals less damage, and does not have a meteor effect. In addition, when used on the ground, it does not create a shockwave. Because the aerial version of Wizard's Dropkick offers better horizontal distance than the standard Wizard's Foot, it can be used to help Ganondorf's recovery.
The second custom variant is Wizard's Assault, which travels faster, and travels through foes. However, it takes longer to execute, deals less damage, and damaged opponents are sent flying behind Ganondorf, instead of forward. In addition, when used in the air, the kick sends Ganondorf straight down, making it ineffective for recovery purposes.
