Changes from SSB4
His side special does 1% more damage
His blaster shoots slightly slower
His side smash does more damage
Specials and Final Smash
Fox fires his blaster, which can fire rapidly but doesn't stun the opponent. The lasers lose power as they travel.
Charge Blaster – Fox fires a single, powerful laser. Has a slower startup time but stuns opponents and knocks them back. Has shorter start-up time if used in the air.
Fox becomes invisible and suddenly dashes through opponents, leaving behind after-images. Fox will send opponents hit upwards.
Wolf Flash – Fox dashes at an upwards angle, meteor smashing opponents at a downwards angle if it hits with. This move is based on Wolf's side special move from Brawl.
Fox charges up and suddenly fires himself in one of many directions, depending on what direction is held.
Flying Fox - A variation that is faster and travels further, but deals no damage.
Fox activates a Reflector around him. All projectiles are deflected and do more damage than they normally would. The Reflector damages nearby foes upon activation.
Amplifying Reflector – Has a longer startup time, but doubles the power and speed of reflected projectiles. It cannot deal damage or pushback at close range and does not stall in midair.
Fox calls in a Landmaster. The Landmaster can shoot out powerful laser beams and perform barrel rolls.
