The Jolt Haymaker in Super Smash Bros. for Wii U

The Jolt Haymaker is Little Mac's side special move in Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS / Wii U and Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. Upon using the move, Little Mac leaps forward while rearing his arm back and then throws an overhand punch. The player can press the special button again while Little Mac is in the air to punch early. In Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS and Super Smash Bros. for Wii U, Little Mac cannot be controlled after using this move, and if he remains in the air after using it, he is left in a helpless state until he lands. This issue is absent in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, which makes it much more useful for recovery and much safer when used near a stage's edge.

Two custom variants are available for this move in Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS and Super Smash Bros. for Wii U:

The first variation of this move is the Grounding Blow, in which Little Mac leaps up higher and delivers a punch directly downward; this move can bury opponents, and has meteor smash abilities if sweetspotted. However, its horizontal movement is worse than that of the default Jolt Haymaker, making it a lot less effective for recovery.

The second custom variant is Guard Breaker, which is slower, and the jump does not have as much horizontal distance, but it is more powerful, and unblockable. Pressing the special move button again does not make the move execute quicker. Interestingly, this move has an inconvenient property, where it doesn't offer Little Mac any horizontal movement if used immediately out of knockback.
