Dillon (ジロウ, Jiro) appears as a newcomer in Super Smash Bros. V as a paid DLC Character. He was announced right after the reboot announcement for the game. He was revealed and announced on January 28, 2019.

“Dillon, also known as the Red Flash, is the eponymous and protagonist character in Dillon's Rolling Western. Dillon is an armadillo that becomes a ranger. Although a seemingly kind character, Dillon's past is shrouded in mystery, though his life is gradually unraveled throughout the course of the game. Over the course of the game, Dillon can collect Pieces of Hearts (similar to the the Legend of Zelda series) to increase his total Heart points. Dillon can also buy and receive equipment to power up his attacks and give him new abilities. ”

He is confirmed to have no alternate costume. He is voiced by Taro Kudo.

<p dir="ltr" style="line-height:1.7999999999999998;margin-top:4pt;margin-bottom:6pt;">Dillon has an attribute boost special attack known as Gear Shuffle. The special allows him to boost a certain attribute for a short period of time. It plays a huge part in his game so to use Dillon to his full potential the move must be made use of. Dillon also has other powerful attacks. His regular moves are almost lagless as well making for tons of safe options. His combo game is also exceptional. Dillon also a fast faller which can be seen as both a good and bad thing. The bad thing about Dillon being a fast faller is that susceptible to juggles and combos. His grab range is poor and although powerful, most of his specials leave him vulnerable if missed.

Name Damage Description
Neutral Special Gear Shuffle Dillon proceeds to change his gear each time the B button is pressed. There are different gears and each have their own specific function. Changing the Basic Bandana to the Macho Bandana gives Dillon a temporary defense boost. Changing the Basic Gloves to the Crusher Gloves gives Dillon a temporary all-round power boost. Changing the Basic Boots to the Dragon Boots gives Dillon a temporary speed boost. The increases in the stats are very significant, but, after the usage of one runs out (or the gear breaks that is), it cannot be changed for the rest of the stock.The gear being changed can seen as it is highlighted so players know what they’re changing.
Alternate 1 - - -
Alternate 2 - - -
Side Special Rolling Attack 11% Dillon rolls up and charges a roll attack when released he zips toward the enemy when he makes contact with anything (shields included) he bounces right off the enemy and can attack immediately after. It can be cancelled after a time.
Alternate 1 Grinding Attack 14% (total) This might be considered a little bit more risky than the regular rolling attack. Dillon actually doesn’t bounce of enemies but when he makes contact he “grinds” the enemy. It has more damage and knockback than the Rolling Attack but if the grinding animation is shielded, he can be punished as it has quite the ending lag. It can be cancelled after a time.
Alternate 2 - - -
Up Special Drift Attack 10% DIllon spikes up and rolls upwards quickly in a “backwards C-arc” manner. He can damage foes while doing this. Grabbing the ledge perfectly can take a bit of practice. Also has quite a lot of range. It can be aimed up or down. When he hits the ground he does a brief sliding animation while putting his hat back on (ending lag).
Alternate 1 Non-Drift Attack 11% Dillon zips straight up with a slight diagonal motion but it doesn’t have as much range as the default Drift Attack. It can be aimed up or down. When he hits the ground he does a brief sliding animation while putting his hat back on (ending lag).
Alternate 2 - - -
Down Special Tunnel Attack 3% Dillon burrows underground and can move freely. The burrowing does slight damage. If underground for a short time, he pops up automatically but he can come out on his own with a tap of the special button. It should be noted that there’s close to no lag at all after popping out.
Alternate 1 Tunnel Pop-Up Attack 1%, 13% (attack) Dillon can attack coming out from underground, but, he can’t stay underground as long and the burrowing does even less damage. The attacking damage does have quite a lot of damage and knockback, but can be shielded and punished easily.
Alternate 2 - - -
Final Smash Arma-Mode 8% (powerup animation), 1.6x boost to all attributes. An animation occurs in which Dillon charges up and is then covered in a yellow aura. During this mode, all his attributes are greatly boosted (damage, knockback, speed, jump, defense etc.), and his Rolling and Grinding attacks break shields on contact.
