Fox (フォックス, Fox) returns as a playable character in Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo Switch. He was one of the characters confirmed to return in Super Smash Bros. 4 during the E3 2013 trailers on June 11th, 2013. He was also among the first wave of amiibo figures that are compatible with SSB4. Kenji Nojima reprises his role as Fox in the Japanese version with re-recorded voice clips. However, Mike West, Fox's original English voice actor who voiced him in Star Fox 64, reprised his role in the 3DS remake, Star Fox 64 3D and in the Wii U title, Star Fox Zero, now once again voices Fox, replacing Jim Walker.

Trophy Description

Fox is the leader of the mercenary unit Star Fox, often enlisted to defeat the evil Andross. His piloting skills are top notch, but in Smash Bros. he brings speed and fast attacks to the battle. His Reflector move allows him to turn projectile attacks against his foes, increasing their power for a punishing blow.


  • Fox has three English voice actors in both versions of Super Smash Bros. 4. He has Mike West for his battle voice and the Orbital Gate Assault Smash taunts, Jim Walker for the Lylat Cruise Smash taunts, and Steve Malpass for the Corneria Smash taunts.
    • However, despite his current Japanese voice actor being Takashi Ōhara since Star Fox 64 3D, Kenji Nojima reprises Fox in Japanese by the time of both Smash 4 and Star Fox 3D's release dates. This trait is also shared with Falco.
  • Super Smash Bros. 4 is the only Smash Bros. game where Fox is not holding his Blaster in his official art.
  • Fox is the only character in SSB4 whose normal falling speed is higher than 2, at 2.05. 
    • This is also the first iteration where Fox has the fastest falling speed out of all characters in the game.
  • In Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS, Fox will appear to have two upper jaws if the game is paused right after getting hit, but only while using an attack that makes him visually open his mouth. This appears to be a graphical error similar to the "double mouth" glitch experienced by Sonic.
