Special MovesEdit

Name Damage Description
Neutral Special Blaster 3% Falco fires his blaster. Unlike Fox's Blaster, it is slow but can stun the opponent. The blaster fires a bit faster in the air, although not really noticeable.
Alternate 1 Explosive Blaster 1% (loop), 2% (last) Falco fires a shot that slows down as it travels and explodes right before it stops. It pushes opponents while traveling, but does not do damage until the shot explodes.
Alternate 2 Burst Blaster 2% Falco fires more rapid shots, but with less power and range. Similar to Fox's blaster.
Side Special Falco Phantasm 7% (ground), 6% (airborne opponents when used in air) Falco becomes invisible and suddenly dashes through opponents, leaving behind after-images. Unlike Fox Illusion, Falco Phantasm will launch airborne opponents straight downwards on contact, and it has faster startup.
Alternate 1 Falco Phase Falco is intangible for the duration of the move, but cannot hit opponents either.
Alternate 2 Take Flight 3% (initial hit), 2% (each loop hit), 4% (final hit) Falco flies in the air forward. If he makes contact with an opponent, they are sent into a loop of attacks in mid air.
Up Special Fire Bird 2% (charging loop), 3% (launch hit 1), 2% (launch hits 2-8), 2% (launch hit 9) Falco charges up and suddenly fires himself in any direction, depending on what direction is held. The attack hits multiple times.
Alternate 1 Fast Fire Bird 2% Falco instantly fires himself in any direction, but travels a shorter distance.
Alternate 2 Distant Fire Bird 8% (first hit), 2% (loop) Falco charges up for a longer period of time, but travels further. The initial part of the attack launches opponents while the rest of the attack hits opponents multiple times, dealing weak knockback and can't link hits very well.
Down Special Reflector 5% (reflector), 1.2x (reflection) Falco activates his Reflector and kicks it away from him, reflecting any projectiles and shocking any enemies it comes in contact with. It then returns to him as if magnetized. The move can be used as a poking tool that trips low-damage opponents and can start combos.
Alternate 1 Accele-Reflector 2% (reflector), 1.0x (reflection) The reflector can only reflect projectiles while moving forwards, but increases the speed of the reflected shots which deal the same damage as before. The Accele-Reflector is colored green, and deactivates once it stops moving forwards.
Alternate 2 Reflector Void 9% (reflector), 0.7x (reflection) The reflector nullifies most projectiles instead of reflecting them, but deals more damage on contact. Reflected projectiles deal less damage than before. The Reflector Void is colored purple.
Final Smash Landmaster 12%/11%/10%/8% (movement), 10% (roll), 8%/12% (shot) Falco summons his Landmaster. It has more aerial mobility than Fox's, but does not last as long.
