Neutral Special Move Default Trick Shot The dog will kick an explosive can from Hogan's Alley.

The can explodes upon contact, but can also detonate from being shot too many times.
Custom 1 High-Explosive Shot The dog kicks a more explosive can at a higher speed and distance. It explodes immediately when the huntsman shoots at it.
Custom 2 Zig-Zag Shot The shots made by the huntsman makes the can alternate direction. Opponents hit by the can's explosion get flung upwards.
Custom 3 Stunning Shot The explosion caused by the can won't fling opponents away, but stuns them instead.
Side Special Move Default Clay Shooting The dog throws a clay pigeon, which the hunter will shoot into a explosion of gunfire when the Side Special combination is triggered again.
Custom 1 Rising Clay The clay pigeon being thrown will rise upwards, and won't explode in a gunfire when shot. The further it goes upwards, the more damage it does.
Custom 2 Clay Break The huntsman will shoot at the clay pigeon three times with varying accuracy, but the third shot is always a definite hit. Each shot is stronger than the previous one.
Custom 3 Lucky Bird The dog will throw an 8-bit Lucky Bird from Gumshoe instead. When shot, the Bird will turn into a Roast Turkey Food item.
Up Special Move Default Duck Jump The duck carries the dog while flying around, before it loses strength and falls.

Down Special Move Default Wild Gunman The dog summons an 8-bit Gunman from Wild Gunman. The gunman will shoot horizontally before disappearing, but the lag between appearing and shooting differs per gunman. The gunman will also disappear when hit before it gets time to shoot.
Custom 1 Quick Draw Aces The summoned gunman's startup lag is greatly reduced, but so is his shot's distance.
Custom 2 Mega Gunman The dog summons an enormous gunman that can act as a shield, but shoots when nothing hits it.
Custom 3 Double Gunmen Two gunmen appear on each of the Duck Hunt Duo's sides, but it's only the gunmen with the two largest startup lag. Also, their shot's distance is reduced.
Final Smash Default NES Zapper Posse The Duck Hunt Duo summons five 8-bit ducks, which carry any opponent they hit to the Wild West in a cutscene. The opponent get inbetween a shooting of Wild Gunmen and gangsters from Hogan's Alley, and get shot multiple times before being transported back to the battlefield and being launched diagonally.
Custom Hunting Game The player now controls the hunter's reticle as the Duck Hunt Duo hides in patches of grass spread across the stage.
