Square Enix, Matt Makes Games and Recoil Games has published most of these games

* Grappling
Commonly seen in pro-wrestling where one of the wrestlers climbs on one of the corner poles and jumps on top of their opponent.

In games, this is generally for any cases where player can fall, drop down, or jump on top of a character, causing them to be knocked down, injured, or even killed.

Note that although bodyslam also covers throwing your opponent to the ground, this should be considered outside its scope here on UVL.

Hop & bop games should generally not be included.
