From The Codex
Articles About Rayquaza
Versions Pokémon - Smash Bros.


Rayquaza is the second boss in The Subspace Emissary. In the mode, Rayquaza first appears in the level The Lake after Diddy Kong goes to investigate a crashed Arwing. Seeing Diddy and the Arwing's pilot as intruders of its territory, Rayquaza bursts out of the water, destroys the Arwing with an attack resembling a ball of energy, and then grabs Diddy. Before it can retreat into the water, Fox leaps from the burning Arwing and attacks Rayquaza using Fox Illusion, causing it to lose its grip on Diddy Kong. The beast attacks Fox with the energy ball attack again, but Fox reflects the attack back at Rayquaza using his Reflector, sending it tumbling back into the water. Both Diddy and Fox face off against the dangerous legendary Pokémon.

  1. "As time passes on this stage, the level appears to travel through a wormhole from the imaginary Super Smash Bros. Melee world into reality. You move through a cloud-filled sky over a vast mountain range, then into a deep-space vista of dark blues and purples. The scenery is as real as you get in this fantastical world."
