Force Palm is Lucario's side special move in all of his playable Super Smash Bros. series appearances. The effect of the attack changes depending on how close Lucario is to the opponent: if an opponent is within grabbing range, it grabs them and punches them back. Otherwise, it releases a blast of Aura in front of itself. Regardless, the move's power and knockback increases accordingly to the damage Lucario has taken. It cannot jump while performing the move unless hit.
In Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS / Wii U, the first custom variant for this move is Advancing Force Palm, in which Lucario dashes forward while using Force Palm, though it also leaves it open to attacks afterwards. The second variant is Long-Distance Force Palm, which has more range but less damage.
