Luigi is a playable character in Super Smash Bros. Calamity. Luigi is the brother and shadow of Nintendo's famous mascot, Mario. He's usually seen alongside him in most adventures, but sometimes he's just left behind, or sometimes he goes on his own adventures to save Mario, in which most of them take place in a mansion with ghosts roaming around. Good thing he has a vacuum cleaner so he can capture them.

Victory theme Click here to listen!
Luigi's victory theme is a flourish remix of the level clear theme spanning many Super Mario titles, starting from the original Super Mario Bros for the NES. This victory theme is shared with Mario, Peach, Geno, Daisy and Waluigi.
Victory pose #1 Luigi does his side taunt twice on both sides.
Victory pose #2 Luigi childishly swipes at the air, then gasps twice in exhaustion.
Victory pose #3 Luigi spins around a few times before striking a pose, then doing a dance afterwards. This is based on his animation when he levels up in Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story.
Victory pose #4 Luigi shuffles to both sides. This is based on one of his victory poses in Super Smash Bros..

Alternates

Luigi has more alts, one based on his clothing in NES Open Tournament Golf, and two based on his brother Mario's and Wario's color schemes, and has three alternate costumes, Mr. L from Super Paper Mario, Luigi wearing a Princess Peach costume, which appeared in Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga, and Dr. Luigi from Dr. Luigi, which changes his neutral special to Megavitamins and Final Smash to Doctor Finale, similar to Dr. Mario.
