Great Fox Defense is a single-player event match in Super Smash Bros. for Wii U. In it, the player controls Falco, and must defeat 3 Mr. Game & Watches with a varied amount of stock without allowing a single one to land on the stage. On harder difficulties, the opponents have more stock. After two are defeated, a second one appears, and the final one appears after two more are defeated. The landing Mr. Game & Watches appear to have reduced gravity with the ones with their parachute deployed fall slower than the ones that don't. This event is a counterpart to the Co-Op Event Keep 'Em off the Ship!, as both have the same objective.

Completing the event on hard difficulty awards a KO Healer Blaster equipment.
