Overview[edit]

Hitboxes of Fox's dair.

Fox spins very quickly whilst airborne, doing a drill downwards. This attack has 7 hits, each doing 2% damage for a maximum of 14% damage, and is an extremely weak meteor smash. It can be useful for positioning opponents for combos and various setups, including being able to cover certain options from the opponent, such as rolls and tech options. If Fox lands whilst using a down aerial to do so, it is possible to followup with most of Fox's grounded moves. Like all of the drills in the game, it can be SDI'd out of, though if it is spaced properly, it can still be difficult for enemies to punish. The move is overall useful in most situations if it is utilized properly.
