The Home-Run Bat (Japanese: ホームランバット, Hōmu Ran Batto) is a battering Item in all three Smash Bros. games and is best known for its one-hit KO potential. Unlike other battering items, when the player executes a Forward Smash, the character will rev up for longer-than-normal period of time and then swing the bat. If it connects, it causes tremendous knockback, more than enough to KO the opponent in most circumstances. Additionally, when thrown, it causes over 20% damage, making it one of the most dangerous items in the game. Home-Run Bats make an appearance on Monday Dojo update. Is showed Captain Falcon doing an one-hit KO on Snivy.
