Reflector (リフレクター, Reflector) is Wolf's down special move.


Wolf's reflector differs from Fox's and Falco's in appearance, resembling a pink, elliptical "cat's eye" as opposed to a blue hexagonal shape, and Wolf carries his reflecting device on his back instead of his belt. Compared to the other two Reflectors, its reflect property has more startup but gives reflected projectiles a greater speed (1.8x their initial speed). The reflector is activated in one frame and can be held for as long as desired. When used, the first few frames of Wolf's reflect provide him with intangibility, followed by a "zap" that deals 3% and a small amount of set knockback to any opponents touching it; the least knockback of all reflectors. If the special button is held, it will then function as a projectile deflector, but leave Wolf vulnerable to physical attacks, otherwise it ceases after a short cool-down period. The initial frames of Wolf's reflector can operate as a sort of "counter": invincibility is used to avoid an attack, then the reflector damages the attacker. Unlike Fox's Reflector, Wolf's Reflector will not reduce his falling speed.

In Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, Wolf takes out a device to activate his reflector. In addition, the reflector has a better damage multiplier when a projectile is reflected (1.5x instead of 1.3x), now being superior to that of the other spacies' reflectors. However, its intangibility has more startup and less active frames, making it far less useful for escaping combos.

Like Fox and Falco, the design of the Wolf's reflector comes from his ship, the Wolfen, particularly its purple color, although the cat's eye design is a creative liberty exclusive to the Smash series.

  • In Ultimate, if Wolf is under the effects of a Superspicy Curry, is poisoned or is under the effects of Joker's Eiha/Eigaon, his reflecting device will not appear on his hand.
  • In Ultimate, there's an audio glitch where if Wolf quickly turns around on the first possible frame and back on the very next frame while activating his Reflector, his Reflector will be silent until he reflects an incoming projectile or sometimes if repeatedly turning.
