|Other Super Smash Bros. Appearances||SSB/SSBM/SSBB/SSB4|
Fox (フォックス, Fox) returns as a playable character in Super Smash Bros. V. He was confirmed along with Link, Donkey Kong, Pikachu, Kirby, Yoshi, Samus, and Inkling in the Official SSBV trailer + Inkling Reveal Trailer shown at E3 in 2018. His appearance is pretty much the same as it is in Star Fox Wii U.
Fox's alternate costume is confirmed to be based off his Star Fox Zero appearance in which his dash speed is slightly slower for a slight ground attack power boost.
Fox is once again voiced by his SSB4 voice actor, Mike West. His japanese voice actor is Kenji Nojima.
Changes from Smash 4
Like every other veteran, Fox now appears much more vibrant and his appearance is more based off its appearance in its games with a small realistic touch.
Up smash power slightly increased.
Back air power and knockback slightly increased
