Although King Dedede’s fully charged Jet Hammer maneuver is quite powerful, it is still not as strong as the K.O. uppercut punch from Little Mac. The game director also warned players not to overcharge the hammer attack. You can find a screen of King Dedede performing the maneuver, along with more “Super Smash Bros 4” for Wii U and 3DS images, in the slideshow to the left of this article as well as the comparison comments from Masahiro Sakurai below:

So far, which attack can blast away enemies the most dynamically… Is it King Dedede’s fully charged Jet Hammer? Nah, it can’t beat the K.O. uppercut. You can damage yourself by overcharging this attack, so watch out.

Little Mac was previously an assist trophy in “Super Smash Bros Brawl.” In the upcoming release, however, the boxer will be made playable. The K.O. uppercut can be used when the special meter is filled up. King Dedede is going to make his second appearance as a fighter with “Super Smash Bros 4” for Wii U and 3DS.

Nintendo is planning to release the software product for the two platforms before 2014 ends. The publisher has not yet provided a more specific release date window for the latest “Super Smash Bros” title, however.
