Falcon Punch is Captain Falcon's standard special move featured in every Super Smash Bros. game, since his playable debut in Super Smash Bros. for the Nintendo 64. While the move is original to the Super Smash Bros. series and does not originate in F-Zero, it has essentially become Captain Falcon's signature move, to the point of being occasionally mentioned and used in F-Zero media.

When using this move, Captain Falcon holds his arm back, charges it up, and then throws a powerful punch engulfed by a large, falcon-shaped flame as he yells, "FALCON... PUNCH!" Although it is renowned for its significant power, if Captain Falcon is attacked during the charging process, the attack is automatically canceled. As of Super Smash Bros. Brawl, Captain Falcon can turn around while charging the attack, which gives the attack more power. The player can also hear a falcon shriek when doing this.

In Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS / Wii U, the Falcon Punch's first custom variant is Falcon Dash Punch, in which Captain Falcon dashes forward as he performs the punch, though it deals less damage and he is vulnerable before attacking. The second variant is Mighty Falcon Punch, which takes longer to charge up and is actually weaker, despite its description stating it is more powerful.

Ganondorf's Warlock Punch functions similarly, but is much slower, more powerful and, since Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS / Wii U, protects Ganondorf from being launched.
