Fox dashattack

Fox's dash attack

Dash attack is an attack performed by pressing the attack button while dashing, (running, in other words). To do a dash attack immediately after starting a dash, press the c-stick down instead.

Dash attacks typically use the momentum behind the dash to pull off some sort of attack, like a sliding kick. Most dash attacks come out quickly, but have noticeable ending lag and are predictable, making them very easily shield-grabbed. In Brawl, certain Dash attacks can be interrupted by performing an Up Smash, which is known as Dash Attack Canceling. Often, a combo is used with the low, more combo based knockback of the dash attack, leading up to the more powerful KO move Up Smash.
