Wolf Flash (ウルフフラッシュ, Wolf Flash) is Wolf's side special move, and one of Fox's custom side special moves in Smash 4. It appears to work the same way as Fox's or Falco's side special move. However, the attack sends Wolf upward around 35 degrees, allowing it to act as a recovery from points below the stage. As with other Star Fox characters' side special moves, Wolf Flash can be cancelled by pressing the button for a special move, which sends Wolf further horizontally without an angle. The attack appears to be weaker than Falco Phantasm, although it deals the same amount of damage as Fox Illusion, doing only minor damage (normally 3%). The trail behind Wolf deals negligible knockback (KOs at around 700%). However, when there's an enemy at the spot where Wolf stops, the attack is electrified and deals considerable damage while stunning the enemy, as well as doing a meteor smash or causing high knockback (10% if hit at the end, 15% if Wolf ends in the character model of his foe, 18% should one land both the beginning hitbox and the final hitbox).
Wolf Flash has two cancel frames. This removes the sweetspot of the attack but greatly increases the horizontal reach of the move for recovery.
