Ground Pound is an attack that Mario and Luigi have in a few of the Mario series, including New Super Mario Bros. Wii. It has appeared in other video game series as well, though they are not always performed in the same manner. In Donkey Kong Country, for example, Donkey Kong performs a ground pound by smashing his hands into the ground.
