Captain Falcon () is a returning veteran in the game Super Smash Bros. Universe. His design has been changed to most resemble his "GX" design after using his "X" design in the previous four installments of Smash. Like all veterans in Universe, Falcon now has several alternate costumes that can be purchased in the Smash Shop, and he now features an alternate character slot which is shared with Kent Akechi from F-Zero Maximum Velocity for the Game Boy Advance.



Name Description
Neutral attack Punches twice, then knee strikes the opponent. Alternatively, the first two punches can be followed by a series of punches, culminating in an underhand punch that has very high base knockback.
Forward Tilt Performs a roundhouse kick.
Up Tilt Does an axe kick with good horizontal knockback. Can be used to continue or start combos at mid percents. It is a powerful meteor smash on aerial opponents if the heel is landed.
Down Tilt Does a sweep kick with horizontal knockback.
Dash Attack Shoulder tackles his opponent. It can set up an aerial attack.
Forward Smash Rears back and makes a lunging burning elbow.
Up Smash Performs a spinning double hop-kick.
Down Smash Kicks forwards and then backwards.
Neutral Aerial Kicks forwards twice.
Forward Aerial Performs a knee strike that deals electric damage.
Back Aerial A quick backhanded strike.
Up Aerial Does a flip kick with fast start-up and good all-around range.
Down Aerial Stomps downward.
Grab Grabs the opponent with his hand.
Pummel Knee strikes the opponent.
Forward Throw Punches the enemy, sending them forward.
Back Throw Puts the enemy behind him and kicks them backwards.
Up Throw Holds the enemy up and punches them upward with his left hand.
Down Throw Swings the foe overhead and then slams them on the ground with a single arm.
Neutral Special Falcon Punch Captain Falcon winds up and releases his iconic fiery punch. Inputting a direction (up or down) when charging Falcon Punch in the air will give a slight boost in that direction.
Side Special Raptor Boost Captain Falcon dashes forward and follows up with an uppercut. Can meteor smash the opponent if used in the air.
Up Special Falcon Dive Captain Falcon attempts to grab an opponent, finishing with an explosion. If successful, he will cry "YES!!!". Does a harmless flip if the attack fails.
Down Special Falcon Kick Captain Falcon bursts forward with a flaming high-speed kick. If used in the air, Captain Falcon will plunge down at a diagonal angle.
Final Smash Blue Falcon Captain Falcon calls in the Blue Falcon, which crashes through the stage in front of Captain Falcon. Whoever it hits when it first appears will be hit by the rest of the move. Characters who are not hit will stay in place until the end of the smash. A short cutscene appears, and the opponents are run over and sent flying. Like certain other Final Smashes, if no one is hit when the Blue Falcon appears, then the attack fails.
Tag-Team Smash Double Boost (Shared w/ Rick Wheeler) Captain Falcon and Rick Wheeler summon both the Blue Falcon and the Dragon Bird at once and race against each other until they approach the opponent. Upon reaching the opponent, the two machines begin spin attacks and cause an electrical tornado which paralyzes the player. Captain Falcon and Rick Wheeler then jump out of their machines and preform a Giant Falcon/Dragon Punch to the opponent.


  • Up taunt: Charges himself up with a fiery aura, similar to when using the Falcon Punch.
  • Side taunt: Holds out his hand and gestures his opponent to come closer, exclaiming "Come on!".
  • Down taunt: Faces the camera, salutes and exclaims "Show me your moves!" (The animation is different and faster if he is facing left).

On-Screen Appearances

  • The Blue Falcon spins to a stop, Captain Falcon jumps out, and then the Blue Falcon speeds off.
