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.

Fox Changes in Super Smash Bros Ultimate

On top of getting a new Final Smash, Fox has also received some more minor changes to his moveset. There are likely to be further changes in the lead up to launch, but for now, here’s every change we’ve seen so far for Fox in Super Smash Bros Ultimate:

  • Outfit now based on Fox from Star Fox Zero
  • Increased damage on Up Aerial attack
  • New idle animation where Fox stands and growls at the camera

Fox Alternate Outfits in Super Smash Bros Ultimate

Fox Alternate Costumes

Fox features the same Alternate skins as he had in Super Smash Bros for Wii U. These consist of slight changes to the colors of his outfit, as well as a purple Fox variant.

That’s all we know about Fox in Super Smash Bros Ultimate so far. We’ll be adding more info to this guide as we find out more about the character, but in the meantime you can head over to our Super Smash Bros Ultimate Guides Hub for more details on the upcoming game.
