The leader of the Star Wolf mercenary team makes his grand return after 10 years! He puts his sharp claws to good use in wild attacks, and his Final Smash is an all-out attack by Team Star Wolf! If Fox or Falco is in the battle, you may hear a unique line of dialog.
Although Wolf does not appear in the World of Light cutscene, he was vaporized and later imprisoned alongside alongside the rest of the fighters (except for Kirby) when Galeem unleashed his beams of light.
Wolf was one of the fighters that fell under Dharkon's control upon Galeem's first defeat. He is unlocked in the Mysterious Dimension in the Dark Realm. The player must defeat the Andross spirit (which is the answer to a given question) to reveal a path leading to a wrecked airplane. His unlock battle is on the plane's tail (just to the left of the Krystal spirit).
Tips about a character's background and how to use that character can appear at random intervals on the loading screen. The player can also access the full list of tips at any time in the "Vault" section. The following tips are copied verbatim from the in-game text.
Wolf's Origins: Wolf's debut was in Star Fox 64, released in 1997. His first appearance would have been Star Fox 2, but that title was delayed a bit.
In His Series: Wolf is an ace pilot and leader of the elite team Star Wolf. He's been known to work for the evil Andross. Wolf not only has a connection to Fox, but also to Fox's father James.
Blaster (Neutral Special): A two-part attack where you first attack with the blade on the Blaster and then fire a shot. Use it near an opponent to hit with both. The attack is powerful, but you cannot continuously fire.
Wolf Flash (Side Special): Input up or down with the control stick to slightly change the direction you dash forward. If the claw makes contact, it hits hard. The center area has a powerful meteor effect!
Fire Wolf (Up Special): Input a direction to make Wolf move in that direction while attacking. He doesn't go far, but it has great launching power, making it great for KOs.
Reflector (Down Special): Projectiles opponents fire will be reflected back at them with more speed and power. Opponents directly hit with the Reflector will be thrown slightly upward.
Team Star Wolf (Final Smash): Team Star Wolf's launch is a coordinated attack on the targeted fighters. Wolf's dialogue changes if Fox or Falco have been targeted.
