Fox is a veteran character returning in Super Smash Bros. Rumble. He retains many aspects from his previous incarnation, though he has been buffed and regains the "shine spike" and can once again jump-cancel the Reflector. He was one of the characters shown in the reveal trailer. This is his fifth appearance in a Super Smash Bros. game (excluding Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS).
