Rather surprisingly, this matchup is super difficult for Lucario, although it has little to do with the very high power of Fox's up smash. (After all, many characters that Lucario solidly counters have similar KO potential, like Link, Ganondorf, and Zelda.) Rather, Lucario's troubles in this matchup stem from how its attributes make it super easy for Fox to combo. Fox's Blaster camping and Reflector discourage Lucario from using Aura Spheres except as a punish option, and with Fox's ground mobility, he arguably takes advantage of Lucario's sluggish ground attacks as good as Meta Knight does. Fox's aerial combos also outmatch Lucario's as well. Combined with Fox's abundance of KO options, namely back and up airs in addition to up smash, Lucario will often not survive long enough to take advantage of aura. One advantage Lucario has over Fox, though, is overall offstage play. Lucario's recovery, while still being easy to edgehog, is still less linear and predictable than either of Fox's recovery moves (and that's after factoring in double jump forward air). Lucario's aerials are also better at edge guarding and countering edge guarding than Fox's are. But from Lucario's various disadvantages in this matchup, it solidifies why Fox makes an impressive counterpick character in certain matchups.
My vote: 6/4
