Changes from Super Smash Bros. 4
Roy has been substantially buffed in his transition to Ultimate, his most significant improvements being from the general universal changes to Ultimate, such as the ability to dash cancel into any grounded move and decreased landing lag on his aerials, which greatly improve his approach, air game, and rushdown ability. Some of his moves, like up aerial and Double-Edge Dance have been buffed to have improved KO potential, increasing his options at higher percentages, and KO confirms with move likes his jab and the first hit of neutral aerial have become much more consistent and reliable.
Classic Mode: A Journey of Swords
Roy's opponents consist of entirely sword-fighters, with the exception of the final round.
Role in World of Light
Although Roy does not appear in the World of Light opening cutscene, he was vaporized and later imprisoned alongside the rest of the fighters (sans Kirby) when Galeem unleashed his beams of light.
