Super Smash Bros. for Wii U is the fifth installment of the Super Smash Bros. series. It was released in late 2014, a few months after the release of Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS, which was released a few months earlier. Because the games were developed simultaneously, therefore often pairing them together, Super Smash Bros. for Wii U is also considered to be the fourth installment.

Customization

Returning from Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS is the ability for players to customize their fighters, adding various equipment such as badges and the like as well as changing their special moves (the custom parts must be collected through gameplay, as they are not available at the start, and most appear at random, with few exceptions that are awarded for completing certain challenges), and this includes Fox and Falco. Below are their custom special moves.

Character Custom neutral specials Custom side specials Custom up specials Custom down specials
Fox Impact Blaster: Fox fires slower blaster shots that deal more damage and knock opponents back. Charge Blaster: Charge to fire a single, powerful laser. It's slow but deals a lot of damage. Fox Burst: Fox cannot hit opponents with the dash itself, but will generate a large explosion wherever he stops. Wolf Flash: Dash into the air at an angle. When it hits, it sends opponents crashing downward. Flying Fox: Move can be used faster but deals no damage. Twisting Fox: Spin to pull opponents in, then rise into the air, hitting multiple times on the way. Big Reflector: A larger reflective shield that doesn't power up reflected projectiles. Amplifying Reflector: Has a longer startup time, but doubles the power and speed of reflected projectiles.
Falco Explosive Blaster: Blaster shots are slower and larger, but explode on impact. Burst Blaster: Works like Fox's Blaster. Falco Phase: Very little start up time. Increased distance and grants invincibility frames through the whole attack, but no longer causes damage. Falco Charge: Has high power, but the distance traveled is much lower. Fast Fire Bird: Slightly faster start up than the vanilla version, but slightly shorter reach and much less damage. Distant Fire Bird: Slower start up, But the vertical recovery distance is longer. Multiple damaging hitboxes added to the end of the fire trail. Accele-Reflector: The reflector is lime green in color and speeds up reflected projectiles, but only reflects as it travels forward. Reflector Void: The reflector is a purple-red color and does a decent amount of damage with sizable knockback. Slightly slower than the vanilla version.
