A throw is a technique in both installments of the No More Heroes video game series performed using the Wii Remote.

When an enemy stunned by a Beat Attack is grabbed, two arrows are displayed on the screen, the left representing the Nunchuk and the right representing the Wii Remote. Swinging the Nunchuk and Wii Remote in the directions of the arrows prompts protagonist Travis Touchdown to attack with a wrestling throw, otherwise the arrow cue will end and the enemy will continue to attack. The direction of these arrows, and thus the throw Touchdown uses against his foe, depends on the exact posture of his opponents as they are grabbed.

Depending on their game, Throws are more or less like Deathblows, though instead of attacking with the beam katana, they all usually involve using the throw's momentum to harshly slam the opponent into the ground, which the throw often places the enemy at a position which a most vulnerable part of the body is landed on, such as the spine or back of the head. Unlike the act of kayfabe in professional wrestling, these are extremely dangerous and unrestrained in their force, as Travis uses them in assassination and in a street fighting-like nature. Though they are deadly in themselves, often seeing the enemy paralyzed or in a state of trauma as the result of the force of the attack, many of them see Travis follow up with his beam katana having been thrown into the air and landing onto the opponent, "pinning" them often onto their vulnerable body.

Touchdown, a wrestling enthusiast, is already able to use several throws at the beginning of the first installment, however his arsenal of techniques can be expanded by watching cassettes available for purchase at Beef Head, as well as by acquiring notes pinned to wrestling masks throughout Extreme Murder Battle Stages. Also in the first title, after being imparted with the Technique of Affinity by Randall Lovikov, Touchdown is able to grab targets for his throwing maneuvers from an even greater distance.

As of Desperate Struggle, all throws are Fatal Techniques, are automatically activated if a Beat Attack is a finishing attack, and allow a chance at Dark Side Mode. They also have variations depending on the size of the enemy. All gained wrestling moves in Desperate Struggle are instead learned by the Backdrop Weeklys magazine after each Ranking Battle.

While throw techniques can be used on common thugs, they are more effective on ranked assassins, as they deliver more damage than Slash Combos.
