Javi is known for his high level of technical skill, being one of the first Fox mains to consistently utilize the double shine technique in competitive play. Javi is considered one of the best Fox players in dittos and the Falco matchup, taking sets off of several famed space animal players in tournament such as PPMD. He however does poorly in the Samus matchup similar to Leffen having lost sets to ESAM and Duck. He holds the controller in an unusual way compared to most others, playing "claw" as if he was using a fight stick.
