Jake's Super Smash Bros. is the most ambitious crossover event in history.

Jake's Super Smash Bros. logo sideways.png, also referred to simply as Super Smash Bros. or by the acronym of JSSB, is a reboot to 2015's author appeal project of the same name and a replacement to 2017's Super Smash Bros. Switch. The game is considered as both the seventh instalment of the Super Smash Bros. series, following 2018's Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, as well as a soft-reboot for it. Unlike previous titles in the series, the game is not directed by series creator Masahiro Sakurai but instead by the titular Jake, who also serves as the game's announcer.

Jake's Super Smash Bros. retains the same gameplay elements as previous Super Smash Bros. titles, such as being a 2.5D fighting game set within platformer-esque levels, as well as including a story mode that reimagines and builds on the plot of Super Smash Bros. Brawl's Subspace Emissary.

Gameplay

As with previous entries in the Super Smash Bros. series, Jake's Super Smash Bros. is a 2D mascot fighting game that ditches several aspects that "traditional" fighting games, such as Tekken or Street Fighter, utilize. The game features a number of different characters from various Nintendo-owned and third party franchises, and up to eight can fight at once on a single stage. Instead of the normal, flat stages found in most fighting games, Jake's Super Smash Bros. features ones with a variety of different platforms and hazards that may affect one's playstyle.

Unlike most fighting games, which utilize combo-based movesets for fighters, Jake's Super Smash Bros. simplifies this- all playable characters have a single 'standard attack' button, and a 'special attack' button, with the control stick's directional input determining what attack they perform. As such, all fighters have eight main attacks- up, down, side, and neutral standard and special moves. There are also tilt and smash attacks, which are more powerful versions of the fighters' standard moves; tilt attacks occur when a control stick is not tilted fully in a single direction and are generally more powerful than normal standard attacks, while smash attacks are even more powerful standard attacks that can be charged up by holding down the standard move button. When airborne, fighters are also granted a different set of standard moves, and some special moves may also act differently. Additionally, airborne fighters are granted another standard attack, as tilting the control stick forwards or backwards causes the fighter to perform a different attack. Finally, all fighters also have a Final Smash, a powerful special move that replaces the character's neutral special move once they have broken a Smash Ball.

Also unlike most other fighting games, the aim of a battle is not to deplete a foe's HP bar but instead knock them past the invisible blast lines located around the stage. Taking damage ups a fighter's "damage percentage", which increases the amount of knockback they take from the attacks of foes; a fighter whose damage percentage is at 20% will take far less knockback than one whose damage percentage is at 120%, for instance. Fighters with higher damage percentages also launch foes further from their attacks in a game mechanic called Rage. Rage steadily increases a fighter's knockback output, and the effect is signified by steam rising from both the character's model and portrait on the HUD. This takes effect starting at 35%, and Rage will build until it maxes its potential at 150%. When a fighter is KO'd their damage percentage is cleared, thus eliminating whatever Rage they had built up.

There are three main types of battle types present in Super Smash Bros., each with their own objectives. They are:

  • Stock Battles: Battles where every fighter has a limited amount of stocks (lives). While KOing enemies is important, the winner of the battle is not the one with the most amount of KO's at the end but rather the last character with any stocks remaining.
  • Coin Battles: Battles where the aim of the battle is not to KO characters but rather to collect coins, which drop from fighters every time they take damage. KOing an enemy will have them lose half of their coins (rounded up, though a fighter may never lose more than 100 coins at a time). There are three denominations of coin - Bronze, Silver, and Gold - that are worth one, three, and six points respectively. Though rare, fighters may also drop bills which are worth nine points. Coin Battles have a time limit.
  • Timed Battles: Battles that occur for a set amount of time where the aim is to KO the most amount of fighters. As there is no limited to stocks, each fighter may be KO'd an indefinite amount of times. Should multiple fighters have the same amount of KO's at the end of the battle, they are forced into a Sudden Death situation (see below). Both Stock and Coin Battles may have a time limit placed upon them with make them functionally similar to Timed Battles but with their respective goals remaining intact.
  • Sudden Deaths take place should two or more fighters be "tied" at the end of a match. Regardless of the game mode being played, a Sudden Death battle acts identically: all players have a single stock and the last character remaining is declared the victor. Unlike normal Stock Battles however, Sudden Death puts all fighters at 300% (effectively making it so that they will be KO'd in a single hit) and Bob-ombs will begin raining from the sky after 60 seconds have passed.

With the exception of Sudden Death, all battles may also be played in "Stamina" format. Stamina Battles act closer to other fighting games (such as Street Fighter) in that all fighters have a set amount of HP and are instantly defeated once their health reaches zero. By default, all characters begin a battle with 300HP, though this can be increased to as high as 999HP or lowered to 1HP. Characters retain a set amount of knockback in Stamina Battles (equal to if they were to be at 5%).

Compared to other Super Smash Bros. titles, the game aims to be more casual than most other titles. Characters generally move at a speed slightly slower than in Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS / Wii U, and have about as much weight as those in the former do. Because of the game's more-casual target audience, many of the series' techniques utilized in competitive play, such as directional air-dodging and the "wavedashing" glitch, are not present in the game. The game does not completely ignore changes made after Brawl however, as some of the gameplay elements from Ultimate - such as the ability to attack while climbing a ladder, the optional Final Smash Meter that fills up as you deal and take damage, and the fact that both fighters in a 1-on-1 match take more damage and knockback than in matches with more players - have been retained.

A new addition to the Super Smash Bros. formula are Critical Smashes. These attacks come out completely randomly and are essentially powered-up versions of a fighter's smash attacks; only a fighter's smash and tilt attacks can become a Critical Smash. These special critical hits increase the damage output of an attack by a very small amount. Critical Smashes are signified with a flurry of golden stars that appear out of the opponent the attack connects with.

Collectibles

There are four collectible items in the game: CDs, trophies, and stickers.

CDs, as implied by their name, unlock new music for stages upon being collected. CDs are the rarest type of collectible though, unlike trophies and stickers, players can not collect duplicates of one track; once all CDs have been collected they will cease spawning.

Trophies and stickers may spawn during matches (trophies rarely and stickers uncommonly), though can more easily be earned through other modes. Trophies are small figurines of characters, items, or other objects from various series, which have different descriptions that give details about the object or its usage in its original appearance, while stickers can be used to alter the statistics of a fighter.

Collected stickers and trophies can be viewed in the Gallery. For a complete list of all of the game's music, trophies, and stickers, click the corresponding button below. The buttons are listed in that order. There also exists a shop where players can purchase these collectibles with in-game currency earned by playing Classic Mode, All-Star Gauntlet, Smash Run, and Smash Tour.

Stickers

Main article: Jake's Super Smash Bros./Stickers

Stickers are a gameplay mechanic that are very much comparable to the Custom Parts included in Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS / Wii U and the Spirits from Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. All collected stickers have certain powers bonded to them, which the player can place onto the base of a playable character's trophy in order to power them up in certain ways. Stickers use artwork depicting characters from various media, and the size of the stickers denote the amount or strength of the powers attributed to it. Whether or not the effects of the stickers applied to a character are active during a battle can be decided via the options menu, and the active effects are displayed to all players before the battle begins. Should a sticker be removed from a character, it, as well as any of the powers that the sticker contains, will be permanently destroyed; no sticker can only be obtained once, as even those received from completing challenges can be obtained in platinum sticker packs. Additionally, stickers can not be overlapped on the base of a trophy, and as such the player must arrange them in such a way in order to optimize characters to suit their play style.

Shop

The Shop always has a collection of seven trophies that can be purchased with the gold earned by playing through the different modes as well as three packs of stickers. Any trophies that are obtained through random chance and not the completion of a specific challenge, though some are rarer than others and will be priced higher than others. Likewise, packs of stickers come in four varieties, each one increasing in price and thus the rarity of stickers that they may contain: bronze, silver, gold, and platinum; a bronze and silver pack will always be available for purchase, while platinum stickers will, on rare occasion, replace the otherwise-present gold packs.

This system previously appeared in Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, though it has been revised for its Jake's Super Smash Bros. counterpart. The main difference between its previous appearances is that the shop is now manned by one of several characters, which are chosen randomly; while character similarly appeared in the shops in the Adventure Mode of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, in Jake's Super Smash Bros. the clerks all have unique attributes that allow the player to do a variety of different things when spoken to.

Clerks

There are four characters that can appear: the wooden box-headed clerk from Tomodachi Life, Rusty Slugger from Rusty's Real Deal Baseball, Timmy and Tommy Nook from the Animal Crossing series, or the Happy Mask Salesman from The Legend of Zelda series. The Tomodachi Life clerk does not have any unique attributes, and as such is the most common salesman, followed in order by Rusty, Timmy and Tommy, and the Happy Mask Salesman. When the language is set to Japanese, Rusty is replaced by Inuji Darumeshi just as in his original title.

Rusty allows players to haggle with him to lower the prices of trophies and sticker packs; and he may also lower the prices of trophies already at a discounted price. When Timmy and Tommy mans the shop, players can sell their duplicate trophies and pay roughly 30% of the trophy's original price. The Happy Mask Salesman will only appear for 72 minutes at a time (a reference to how Majora's Mask takes place over three days - or 72 hours), and only carry trophies normally priced at 2500 G. The Salesman may also include discounts that can range from anywhere between 5% off and 65% off, making it possible to pay only 875 G for a trophy normally priced at 2500 G.

Prices

Prices are determined by the rate of how common a trophy is, as all trophies that can be earned by random drop can also be purchased. Some trophies, notably the alternate trophies of the playable characters, can only be obtained by purchasing them through the shop.

Prices may also be discounted at 10% off, 30% off, or 50% off. These sales happen at random intervals throughout the day.

Jake's Super Smash Bros. includes a total of 250+ playable characters from a number of video game series, primarily focusing on the intellectual properties created by Nintendo; 220 of these are unique fighters. While the series represented are primarily ones that have seen releases in more-recent years, there are a number of more-obscure characters that represent Nintendo's rich history. The game's philosophy is not to include a roster full of characters that "make sense" as fighters or as representatives of a series, but rather to include a large number of characters that are interesting and may not be as well known even to longtime Nintendo fans.

In addition to characters owned by Nintendo, select characters owned by third party companies will also be playable including representatives from SEGA, Capcom, Bandai Namco, and Koei Tecmo, among others. According to the creator of the game, any character that has debuted in a video game is eligible to appear as a playable character in the game, though characters from Nintendo's first- and second-party franchises are to be prioritized over any third-party fighter. A small number of characters hailing from media other than video games will also be included in the game.

A number of characters with movesets based on another character's, called "Dash Fighters" and marked with an acute accent (´), are also included in the game, but do not increase the number count on the roster and the player can choose to stack the icons of Dash Fighters atop their "original" on the character select screen. There are a total of 30 Dash Fighters in all.

Characters are listed in alphabetical order.

Character Data

Basic Abilities

Some playable characters have their own special quirks, often derived from abilities they may demonstrate within their series of origin. These traits may not be attack-based, instead granting them special defensive- or movement-based techniques that other fighters may be unable to use. There are five abilities that some characters may also exhibit, as well: the ability to crawl, wall jump, glide, the ability to grab opponents from afar (known as tether grab), and use either a tether grab or a special move in mid-air and latch on to a nearby ledge (known as tether recovering). It should be noted that Zoroark has full access to all of these abilities should it transform into a character capable of performing such.

wall jump crawl

By jumping towards a wall and flicking the control stick away from it, the player can perform a wall jump with the following character. Performing a wall jump essentially acts as an additional midair jump (albeit a situational one), and does not reset the number of jumps the character may have remaining nor will they enter a helpless state afterwards.

While crouching, the player can tilt the control stick left or right slightly to crawl along the ground with the following characters. In most cases crawling allows these fighters to move about while maintaining a smaller hitbox, as they are lower to the ground.

glide heavy lifting

While airborne, the following characters are capable of entering a glide by holding the jump button down. The character will glide forwards indefinitely, slowly losing altitude. While gliding, the player can angle their character upwards or downwards; though they may begin to lose speed accordingly. Pressing the standard move button while gliding will have the fighter perform an aerial attack to cancel out of it, though the player can also cancel out of their glide without attacking by shielding. Regardless, the character will enter a helpless state afterwards. They will also lose their glide should they be attacked by an enemy, and they will be unable to glide again until they touch the ground once.

The following characters are capable of lifting "heavy" items without much issue. While other characters lose their ability to jump and slow their movement speed dramatically, these characters can move about at a fairly quick pace and perform a single short hop while carrying such items. Some characters are able to carry heavy items in such a way due to telekinesis, though they will still have the same movement limitations as other heavy lifters.

Tom Nook and Redd can also carry any item without issue via their Pocket special move, though they are not "heavy lifters" in the sense that the above characters are and thus will still struggle when carrying heavy items normally.

tether grab tether recover

Tether grabs are grabs that can be performed on an enemy from a greater distance than normal grabs. In all cases, tether grabs see the user pull their enemy towards themselves should they successfully grab a foe and thus their throws and pummel attacks work identically to all other fighters. Some characters have tether grabs replace their normal grabs, while others can only tether grab via special moves. It should be noted that, in addition to all fighters below, the rest of the roster can perform tether grabs via the Ultra Hand item.

Tether recovery options are similar to tether grabs in that the following characters can release a projectile or extend a limb in such a way that allows them to grab something from a great distance. In this case, their targets are ledges; tether recoveries will always target the nearest ledge to the user should they be within range of connecting to it. Tether recoveries are special in that they do not cause the user to fall helpless or enter a pseudo-helpless state should they fail to connect with a ledge; the only penalty is a loss of time. Some characters with tether recovers can perform this technique by using their grab in midair (though they can only connect with ledges and not grab enemies, in this case), while others can do so via standard or special moves. It should be noted that all characters can perform a tether recovery by using the Ultra Hand item.

Additionally, while all characters can swim in water, some fighters take damage while doing so due to having a weakness of such element in their home titles. The amount of damage is minimal, and should only be a factor should they remain in the water until they sink. The characters that take damage while swimming are the following:

JSSB Character icon - Baby Bowser.png JSSB Character icon - Braixen.png JSSB Character icon - Callie.png JSSB Character icon - Chibi-Robo.png JSSB Character icon - Diancie.png JSSB Character icon - Gligar.png JSSB Character icon - Incineroar.png JSSB Character icon - Litten.png JSSB Character icon - Marie.png JSSB Character icon - Paper Mario.png JSSB Character icon - R.O.B..png JSSB Character icon - Robirdo.png JSSB Character icon - Shadow Mario.png JSSB Character icon - Sonic.png JSSB Character icon - Tepig.png

With the exception of Blue Pikmin, all of the Pikmin that Alph and Olimar can summon will be instantly KO'd upon touching water for they can not swim; the Blue Pikmin can and thus will float alongside Olimar. Vespiquen's grubs will also take some damage, though at a slower rate than any other character listed above.

Conversely, some characters are capable of remaining within water indefinitely without drowning, though at an expense they take slightly more knockback while swimming. Characters that do not drown are the following:

JSSB Character icon - Rick & Kine & Coo.png JSSB Character icon - Eiscue.png JSSB Character icon - Kapp'n.png JSSB Character icon - Marin.png JSSB Character icon - Penguin.png JSSB Character icon - Piplup.png JSSB Character icon - Squirtle.png JSSB Character icon - Styla.png JSSB Character icon - Tethu.png

Olimar's Blue Pikmin can also swim indefinitely, though Olimar himself can not.

Some characters also float above the ground, drive vehicles instead of sprinting, have adhesive-covered feet, or are simply used to certain terrain and thus do not slide on platforms covered with ice, and instead will have the same amount of traction on these kinds of platforms as they would normally; though they are still affected by other types of terrain such as those covered with flames. These characters are the following:

JSSB Character icon - Achi.png JSSB Character icon - Bashmaster.png JSSB Character icon - Bowser Jr..png JSSB Character icon - Cofagrigus.png JSSB Character icon - Dark Samus.png JSSB Character icon - Deoxys.png JSSB Character icon - Diancie.png JSSB Character icon - Eiscue.png JSSB Character icon - Emi.png JSSB Character icon - Gex.png JSSB Character icon - Hongo.png JSSB Character icon - Hydreigon.png JSSB Character icon - Ice Climbers.png JSSB Character icon - Jack Frost.png JSSB Character icon - King Boo.png JSSB Character icon - Magearna.png JSSB Character icon - MC Ballyhoo.png JSSB Character icon - Medusa.png JSSB Character icon - Kohga.png JSSB Character icon - Lubba.png JSSB Character icon - Meloetta.png JSSB Character icon - Meta Knight.png JSSB Character icon - Metal Sonic.png JSSB Character icon - Midna.png JSSB Character icon - Miho.png JSSB Character icon - Morpho Knight.png JSSB Character icon - Palutena.png JSSB Character icon - Penguin.png JSSB Character icon - Pink Gold Peach.png JSSB Character icon - Piplup.png JSSB Character icon - Pipsy.png JSSB Character icon - Rudy.png JSSB Character icon - Sephiroth.png JSSB Character icon - Shokora.png JSSB Character icon - Skull Kid.png JSSB Character icon - Thanatos.png JSSB Character icon - Timber.png JSSB Character icon - Vespiquen.png JSSB Character icon - Viridi.png JSSB Character icon - Wanda.png JSSB Character icon - Yooka & Laylee.png

Unique Traits

Kirby Hats

The Artist Copy Ability from the Kirby series, one such example of a hat obtained for Kirby's Copy Abilities.

Kirby's signature ability in the Kirby series is the ability to inhale enemies and steal their techniques, with the enemy granting him different Copy Abilities that allow him different ways to combat his foes. This technique is replicated in Super Smash Bros. through Kirby's neutral special move, Inhale, which allows him to steal one of his enemy's special moves. In addition to copying one of his foes techniques, Kirby will also don a piece of clothing that often relates to the character whose ability he copied. Copy Abilities can be discarded by taunting, though Kirby will also lose it automatically should he be KO'd.

The following table describes the hats that Kirby obtains from all fighters as well as which of their special moves he copies.

Jake's Super Smash Bros. includes a number of different stages based on a large pool of Nintendo IPs, as well as select third party series; all third party series with a playable character representative have at least one stage, but other third party series are represented solely with a stage and no playable character counterpart. Unlike traditional fighting games, which tend to feature flat stages, Super Smash Bros. instead opts for a stage designs that border of levels from a platforming title, with a number of different platforms and obstacles being present on stages. Obstacles can be toggled on and off through the settings. Stages are based off various locales from a number of different titles, and consist primarily of two types of platforms: solid platforms, and soft platforms; while the former is self-explanatory, the latter allows fighters to drop-down come-up through the platform. Other types of platforms exist as well. Like in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, all stages support up to eight players at one time.

The Stage Morph mechanic from Super Smash Bros. Ultimate returns in Jake's Super Smash Bros. When this option is turned on, the stage will shift between two selected (or random, should that option be chosen instead) stages during the battle. Depending on the option the stages can morph every one, two, three, four, or five minutes, or at completely random intervals.
All stages can have their hazards toggled on and off. When disabled, bosses or enemies will not appear on stages and parts of stages that may deal damage on contact do not. Additionally, stages that scroll or travel will instead remain stationary at the point they begin at normally. The Ω (Omega) and Battlefield Forms present in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate do not make a return.

Every stage has access to a wide variety of music tracks hailing from both their home series and others. The player is able to change the frequency that these songs may play in battle via the My Music menu though by default every stage has two "main" tracks that will play more frequently than others.

Stages are listed in alphabetical order.

Stage Bosses

Some playable stages include bosses as stage hazards. Unlike normal stage hazards, stage bosses can actually be defeated and will cease appearing once they are. Additionally these bosses act as more dangerous hazards, having a multitude of different attacks, and often grant a point to the fighter that dealt the last hit in timed matches.

My Music

See also: Jake's Super Smash Bros./Music

The My Music system introduced in Super Smash Bros. Brawl returns in Jake's Super Smash Bros. with the same function. This "My Music" feature allows the player to set the frequency that each song in the game is capable of playing on a stage during a match. While, like in previous games, some songs must be unlocked via the collection of CDs and all songs are only capable of playing on a single, pre-determined, stage, players are capable of being more specific with each frequencies and also allow songs to be disabled out-right; setting a song to a 0% likelihood in previous titles still makes it possible to play during a match, albeit it is very unlikely for it to do so.

Menu Music

Just as how each of the different stages that players can do battle on, the menu music can also be changed through the My Music feature. While the menu has its own set of specific music tracks, which consists entirely of menu themes from other video games, the player may also import any of the game's other music tracks into the Menu's My Music selection from those of other stages. Below is a list of the different songs that can exclusively be found in the Menu's My Music selection.

Smash Taunts

By holding down the taunt button for an extended period of time, certain fighters can initiate conversations with other characters from their series of origin on specific stages. These conversations are known as "Smash Taunts", and do not actually affect the battle in any way, making them purely fanservice. Most Smash Taunts will change depending on what fighter(s) the player is fighting against, often having the characters reference the movesets of the player's opponents. The following characters can perform Smash Taunts, once per match unless stated otherwise:

Pit On Reset Bomb Forest, Pit can converse with a number of different characters from Kid Icarus: Uprising, primarily Viridi and Palutena, to get advice from them on how to fight the other characters in the game. This is known as Palutena's Guidance.

Game Modes

Story Mode

Crown of Orchid

Crown of Orchid is the story mode of Jake's Super Smash Bros., and features the playable cast of the game teaming up to defeat a group of villains. Set within its own fictional world made up of aspects of all of the game's represented series, this story focuses on the villains attempting to retrieve the titular Crown of Orchid which is said to be the sole connection to the forbidden realm of Subspace sealed away long ago.

Arcade Mode

Main article: Jake's Super Smash Bros./Arcade Mode

Arcade Mode is a new mode that is essentially a replacement of sorts for the Classic Mode that appears in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. Much like in the aforementioned title, every character has their own preset Arcade Mode "campaign" consisting of twelve levels tailored based on the their home series or role within such. Much like the Classic Modes from entries prior to Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, the player faces Master Hand in the final stage; Crazy Hand will join the battle starting from intermediate difficulty (7.2 on the numerical scale), while both will be replaced by the Orchid Palms starting at intense difficulty (9.5).

Jake's Super Smash Bros. features two Bonus Stages, which are the only stages in each character's campaign that is not designed specifically for them. These Bonus Stages both make use of the map designed for the Smash Run mode: Race to the Finish and Break the Targets. Both modes see the player having to fight against the basic enemies from the Smash Run mode while completing certain objectives, namely trying to locate an exit (Race to the Finish) and destroying the 10 targets hidden around the stage (Break the Targets). While these Bonus Stages are not specifically tailored to each fighter, they do feature some instances of randomization, such as the location where the player begins, and the location(s) of their objectives. This Bonus Stage always takes up the sixth stage in a character's campaign.

Like in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, players decide difficulty by sliding a numerical bar. At the beginning of a game, players can select up to 5.0, and the difficulty will increase as battles are complete by a certain amount dependant on how the player performs. Unlike in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, players can also pay in-game gold to play a "harder" version of the mode, which begins the game at 7.2 and increases a significant amount more than it normally would.

Classic Mode

Classic Mode returns from all previous entries in the Super Smash Bros. series. As with in Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, Classic Mode can be challenged by two players, though the mode's difficulty will be increased somewhat as a result. Like Arcade Mode, Classic Mode's difficulty is determined at the beginning of the set via a sliding bar that allows the player to choose from a difficulty of 0.1 to 5.0 by default or pay in-game gold to begin the game at 7.2 and participate in a more difficult version of the mode.

The Classic Mode that appears in Jake's Super Smash Bros. is essentially identical to its appearance in Super Smash Bros. for Wii U: a tournament-styled bracket, the player is given the ability to choose between different sets of battle present on a board; both the player and the set battles are all represented on the board with their trophies, with the stages on which the battles are set being displayed underneath the groups of opponents as well. The mode initially begins with a set of six battles for three rounds, with each round increasing the number of participants. After three rounds, the board resets, adding in new battles for an additional two battles. All of these battles have the player face off in one stock matches with no time limit, and the difficulty of the battles increases with each win.

Following these five rounds, the player is then entered into a smaller All-Star Gauntlet-type mode. The player is entered into a random stage where they face off against twenty randomly-determined enemies, up to four at a time. These enemies take more knockback than usual however - though this is not the case should the player be at 9.2 or higher.

After all of these rounds has been completed, the player then faces off against a boss. Unlike Arcade Mode, in which the player always battles Master Hand, Crazy Hand, or the Orchid Palms at the climax of the mode, the boss of Classic Mode is also randomly determined, chosen from any of the unique bosses (re: bosses that are not Orchid clones) present in the game's story mode, Crown of Orchid.

Memory Matches

Main article: Jake's Super Smash Bros./Memory Matches

A replacement to the Spirits mode from Super Smash Bros. Ultimate and the Event Matches from previous titles, Memory Matches are special pre-determined challenges that see the player competing in battles that either recreate or are inspired by events from the series from which characters originate. All battles have the player start off with one stock, though all other factors of the battle differ between battles. Memory Matches have star levels that determine the strength of the opponents and thus the overall difficulty of the battle.

Completing a Memory Match grants the player a number of Stickers proportionate to how they do in the battle; this is judged by how long it takes to complete the battle as well as how much damage the player both took and dealt over the course of the fight. The first time a Memory Match is cleared, players are granted stickers of greater power or rarity - more difficult battles grant the player stickers that are stronger or less common than easier Memory Matches. The player may complete a Memory Match as many times as they wish, though the player will be rewarded with a random selection of stickers after their initial clear of a battle.

Every trophy has a unique battle associated with it, even trophies that may depict duplicate characters.

Online Play

Online Play is a subsection of the normal "Smash" mode, where, instead of playing against CPU opponents or other players locally, players can search for opponents via the internet or link up two or more Switch systems together to fight matches. Players can link up exclusively with their friends, and are capable of changing all individual rules available to them, or can fight against strangers in specific match types.

When fighting "With Anyone", there are two main game modes: "For Glory" and "For Fun". When playing With Anyone, players do not get any choice when it comes to which stage the match will take place on - one of the stages will be selected at complete random. When playing With Friends this is not the case however: players can choose a stage and the game will randomly select one of the stages out of those each player has selected. Custom Mii characters also can not be used in With Anyone matches, and choosing them will default to a random default appearance. In addition, both For Fun mode and For Glory mode feature other differences from both each other and settings found in With Friends:

  • "For Glory" mode removes all of a stage's hazards and gimmicks, allowing for a more hardcore experience. These matches are based upon the most common ruleset for Super Smash Bros. tournaments, being one-on-one matches, with each fighter having three stocks. No items drop in this mode.
  • "For Fun" mode instead embraces the insanity of the Smash Bros. formula. In addition to keeping items on, each match can feature up to four players - if fewer than four players can be found, the game will insert CPU-controlled fighters of varying difficulties.

In addition to playing online in random matches, players can also set up or join active tournaments, or spectate the current matches of players on their Friends List. Smash Run and Smash Tour can also be played online.

All-Star Gauntlet

All-Star Gauntlet is a game mode where one or two players can team-up and fight all of the game's playable characters in a challenging gauntlet of battles. Characters are fought in groups of five. After a certain amount of characters are KO'd, the player will be given a limited amount of healing items (which do not replenish each time they appear) or they could continue with the gauntlet by entering a teleporter. The stages on which the gauntlet are played on are random, changing after each of the "checkpoints." The stages' hazards are enabled on Normal difficulty or higher, though due to there being more than four characters on the screen at once no bosses will appear on stages that have them. All players also only get one stock, though both need to be KO'd before the game is "lost".

Fighting Order

The order in which fighters are fought is not wholly randomized, though there are four possibilities. Fighters may be fought in order of their debut appearance (either newest-first or oldest-first), grouped by the series they represent in order of the series' first release, or in order by their designated number; which of these orders is used is randomized. In the first two cases, should multiple fighters have made their debut in a single game, they will be fought in a randomized order.
