Reflector (リフレクター, Rifurekutā), also known amongst the community as the Shine, is Fox's down attack in Super Smash Flash and his down special move in Super Smash Flash 2. When used by Fox, it creates a barrier around him that damages opponents. In Super Smash Flash, despite the name, the attack was unable to reflect projectiles and did vertical knockback like Falco's did in Super Smash Bros. Melee and SSF2. Also, it is impossible to stall with the reflector as Fox cannot use it in midair. In Super Smash Flash 2 the attack changed to actually reflect projectiles. In addition, if Fox is standing close to an enemy when he uses this attack, the attack will deal 5% damage and stun the opponent. When used repeatedly in midair, it has the ability to slow Fox's falling speed. Fox can jump cancel reflector, like he could in Super Smash Bros. Melee, into any aerial, another reflector, a grab, up tilt or an up smash.



Fox's reflector creates a barrier around him that reflects almost every projectile in the game. When used in midair, it can slow down Fox's falling speed which can be helpful for mind games and helping him recover. He can also cancel the move, which is useful for aiding him in his combos due to the move sending opponents at a semi-spike angle which allows for good follow ups. Due to it sending opponents at a semi-spike angle, it is very useful for gimping certain characters at any percentage when they try to recover.


Falco's reflector acts very similar to Fox's in that it can be used to reflect projectiles and is able to be canceled by jumping. However, like the way it acted in Melee, Falco's reflector will send opponents upwards which is useful in starting vertical combos such as following up the reflector with a down-air, and then using the reflector again, and so on.



Shine spiking

Fox Shine-spiking another Fox.

The Shine-spike is one of Fox's edge-guarding techniques. It is done by chasing an enemy off the stage, then hitting them with the Reflector. Since the Reflector semi-spikes the opponent at a fixed knockback and trajectory, regardless of percentage, it can be used to disrupt certain recovery options.


Multishine is a trick that allows Fox to use the Reflector many more times than normally possible. To perform this, Fox must be on the ground and repeatedly use Reflector and short hop. There is a 2-frame window in which the short hop may be canceled by the Reflector. Reflector can also be jump cancelled; this makes a loop in which Fox may Reflector, cancel it by short hopping and cancel the short hop by shining again. As each Shine is an individual Shine, each will damage enemies hit. There are 3 main uses: to rack up damage, Multishine lock someone into a wall or used as the shine taunt. Down throw, if not teched, will easily set up for a Multishine, increasing damage output. If the opponent being shined is up against a wall, they will not be able to do anything while being Multishined. The Shine taunt is a regular Shine, followed by many Shines in a short amount of time.
