Super Samsh Bros. Ultimate Fox Guide
Fox will be available as a fighter in Super Smash Bros Ultimate, and he comes packed with some minor tweaks to his fighting moves and abilities. He’s got a brand new Final Smash too, so let’s take a look at all the details we know so far about Fox in Super Smash Bros Ultimate.
Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Fox Tips
Fox is one of the most stylish players to play in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. He's easy to get the hang of, but difficult to master. Thanks to his superior pivots and mobility, he can be really effective if used correctly. We've listed our Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Fox Tips below:
- Use Side B to recover
- Pivoting is extremely fast with Fox, and easy to pull off.
- Pivot grabbing in particular is great for chaining into aerial combos.
- Fire your gun as an enemy approaches, they will likely be more agreesive meaning you can shield and then counter.
- Up Smash is great for kills at high percentages.
- Grab ledges when an enemy is hanging off of them to knock them off. If they grab the ledge again they'll have no invincibility. You can then down smash them off of the stage.
- Use down B to reflect projectiles.
- You can also use Down B to slow your descent and turn around while falling.
- Jump + Side B is faster than just Side B.

Fox Final Smash in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate
Let’s start with the biggest change to Fox in Super Smash Bros Ultimate; his new Final Smash. This new special attack sees Fox carrying out a full-on Arwing Strike on his enemy. It’s a pretty awesome sight to behold and is definitely a step up from the awkward Tank Summon attack from Super Smash Bros. Wii U. You can check out the new Arwing Strike Final smash in the video embedded below.
