Fox is the leader of the mercenary unit Star Fox, often enlisted to defeat the evil Andross. His piloting skills are top notch, but in Smash Bros. he brings speed and fast attacks to the battle. His Reflector move allows him to turn projectile attacks against his foes, increasing their power for a punishing blow.

As one of the lighter characters in the SSB roster, Fox can outmaneuver his opponents with his speed and agility. The setback is that opponents can also launch him easily. His attacks don't hurt that much since he relies mostly on strings of combos to slowly build up damage. Fox's short reach can also pose a problem since he needs to be very close to opponents to land a hit. He'll be in a disadvantage if he goes head to head with characters like Donkey Kong or Zero Suit Samus. Use Fox Illusion to quickly close the distance and can be used to catch opponents off guard because of its lightning speed. Fire Fox is great if the opponent doesn't block your attack. This move will leave you in a brief fall state and the activation animation is very obvious that your opponent can easily read it. His Reflector is a very good defensive move since it reflects enemy projectiles back with increased power and speed. Physical attacks and of course grabs, are still something you need to look out for.

Final Smash


Fox summons a giant tank called the Landmaster. This large vehicle's main and most powerful attack is it cannon. You can control move it and getting run over or bumped by the tank will also damage our opponents. The tank can lift itself up using its powerful thrusters which will allow you to reach low ledges. This tank excels in form stages since it only have one platform to move on, compared to the obstacle-ridden normal stages.


Fox's main recovery move is Fire Fox. This move gives hive great height and it can also be steered slightly to any direction. This will leave him in a fall state; however, due to Fox's size and weight, he seems to fall faster - thus, lesser time being vulnerable.Fire Fox can be pointed at different location while charging.

Fire Fox recovery

Fox Illusion is also a great recovery tool since it can cover a lot of distance. This is pretty useful if you're thrown far away from the stage and you need to grab on the ledge immediately. Use this in conjunction with your double jump.
