Ganondorf using Warlock Punch.
|Universe||The Legend of Zelda|
|Effect||Ganondorf performs a slow but powerful dark magic-infused punch.|
Warlock Punch works very similarly to Captain Falcon's Falcon Punch: Ganondorf steps back, charging his fist with dark energy, before attacking with a powerful, dark magic-infused backfist. It is one of the most powerful attacks in the game, dealing 32% damage and powerful knockback, having strong KO potential even for opponents with low damage. Ganondorf can also perform a Reverse Warlock Punch by inputting the opposite direction just before bringing his fist back, which deals 37% damage and increased knockback at a lower angle. Both versions of the move become more powerful when used in midair, dealing 38% damage normally and 40% damage reversed. Ganondorf also gains super armor for the most of the move's startup, ending just before punching.
- At higher damage percentages, a Reverse Warlock Punch deals more knockback than a Home-Run Bat, making it useful for launching the Sandbag in Home-Run Contest.
