Super Smash Bros. Charged Logo

Super Smash Bros. Charged (大乱闘ジアップスマラザーズチャー Great Fray Super Smash Brothers Charged Up) is a platform fighting game developed by Crash Co. and released for the Nintendo Switch. It is the sixth game in the Super Smash Bros. series and the second one to be released on the Switch, following Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.

Following the "Everyone is Here!" approach from the previous game, Charged aims to take a more unconventional, gameplay-centric approach. Specifically, the game takes inspiration from the Super Smash Bros. Brawl mod Brawl-, in that every character has been given significant buffs, attacks, tools, and fighting prowess compared to those in previous installments, making them overall much better fighters. However, because every character now has more useful options, the roster is still technically balanced. This was mainly done to make battles much more interesting to play and watch. Several more new mechanics and game modes have also been added to make the game feel fresh.

As the game is directed by Crash Co., their games and properties are taken as canon alongside the rest of the Nintendo franchises.

Gameplay

The gameplay is very similar to previous Super Smash Bros. games. Unlike traditional fighting games where the players must try to whittle down their opponent's health bar to be the last one standing, Charged' is a platform fighter where every attack deals a certain amount of damage, labelled as percent. The higher a player's percent is, the farther they will be launched from attacks. The objective of the game is to launch the opponent far enough so they are knocked off-screen and into the Blast Zone, KOing them. This can be done by conventional methods such as racking up enough damage to launch them with a powerful attack, or through other means such as preventing opponents from reaching the ledge or sending them downward with a meteor smash so they hit the bottom Blast Zone.

Compared to other Smash games, Charged plays near identically to Ultimate, having very similar knockback properties and mechanics. Every player has access to a certain amount of attacks, ranging from smash attacks that can be charged to be stronger or special moves that are a lot more involved and unique.

Gameplay changes from Ultimate

  • Custom Moves - Custom Moves return from Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS / Wii U. With a few exceptions such as Dart Monkey's entire moveset or Meloetta's Relic Song, every character has three Custom Moves, all of which are available from the start and don't need to be unlocked. Some Custom Moves are entirely new moves, and while most of them are simply variations of the default move, a greater effort has been taken to make them mechanically different.
  • New Moves - All characters have access to new types of moves, which include the following:
    • Crash Attacks, which are Smash Attacks performed in midair. They have shorter charging times than Smash Attacks, and while they do stall the user's falling speed they don't stop their horizontal momentum.
    • Counters, which were previously exclusive to certain characters, can now be used by all characters with a new input dedicated to them. The user enters a defensive state, and if attacked during this time, they will dodge and counterattack. Most Counters only counter physical attacks and deal 1.5x the damage and knockback. Some Counters are unique, such as Pichu's being able to stun opponents and King K. Rool's doubling as both a counter and reflector.
      • Most characters who have had counters in their moveset in previous Smash games have been given new moves. Exceptions include Incineroar, Bayonetta, and Joker, who retain Revenge, Witch Time, and Tetrakarn / Makarakarn respectively.
    • Charged States, which are an alternative to Final Smashes. After grabbing a Smash Ball or filling the FS Meter, the player can press the Counter button instead of the special button to use their Charged State. This is similar to the transformation Final Smashes in Brawl and Smash 4, where the user turns into a more powerful state, though they aren't invincible and can still suffer damage and knockback. They keep this state indefinitely until they lose a stock.
  • Heavy Shield - By inputting the shield and Counter buttons, players can create a heavy shield. It is large and can protect the user from any attacks, and in addition has more health than a regular shield and can sustain more damage. However, it can only be hit once before it breaks, and it cannot be used again for another 40 seconds. It is also not immune to attacks that ignore shields, such as grabs, Incineroar's Darkest Lariat, or Rambi's smash attacks, and the user cannot perfect shield with it. Because of this, it is best used when defending against a heavy attack or when the regular shield is low on health and regenerating.
  • Perfect Shield - Perfect Shielding can now be done by using a shield just as an attack hits the user like in previous Smash games or just letting go of a shield just as an attack hits like in Ultimate. Both variants allow the user to dodge the attack and use any move like in Ultimate.
  • Shield Save - Shield Save is a new technique that can only be performed just as the user's shield is about to break. By Perfect Shielding a move that would break the shield, their shield will be fully restored and they can dodge the attack to avoid being put in a vulnerable state. The timing is more strict than regular Perfect Shielding, though the user has more time to attack the opponent.
  • Gliding - Gliding returns from Brawl. Certain characters can hold up on the control stick after their (final) midair jump to enter a gliding state, where up and down on the control stick can be used to change their flight pattern, though they are vulnerable until they use an attack or land. Some attacks such as Meta Knight's Shuttle Loop also put the user into a gliding state immediately. This can be used to improve and mix up horizontal recovery.

Game Modes

Adventure Mode: Labyrinth of Ancients

Labyrinth of Ancients Logo
Main Article: Super Smash Bros. Charged/Labyrinth of Ancients

Labyrinth of Ancients serves as the game's adventure mode, following World of Light in Ultimate. The mode primarily takes inspiration from The Great Cave Offensive in Kirby Super Star and The Great Maze in The Subspace Emissary in Brawl, in that the mode takes place entirely inside a Metroidvania-esque maze, the titular Labyrinth of Ancients.

The story focuses on a massive labyrinth built by the Ancients, which serves as the previous home of the very same race that lived on the Isle of Ancients. Here, several dark titans reawaken, exit the area and enter the World of Trophies. Master Hand and Crazy Hand lead the playable characters, the Smashers, to war with these beings before they merge into a black hole, sucking everyone in, including the Hands. A chosen group of fighters, called "The Chosen Ones" manage to escape with the help of a being named Denka. They all team up to rescue their friends, who are trapped in there and stop this new threat.

Classic Mode

Classic Mode returns from previous games. Similar to Smash 4 and Ultimate, players can set the difficulty anywhere from 0.1 (Effortless) to 9.0 (Nothing Harder!). It is most similar to its version in Ultimate where every character has their own set of matches. Notably, it is a lot longer than in Ultimate, being more similar to its length in Melee and Brawl. Another difference between the two is that Master Hand and/or Crazy Hand will always appear as the mode's final boss. However, halfway through the mode, players will fight another boss determined by the character they selected, like the bosses in Ultimate. Lastly, each route follows a narrative, with cutscenes that focus on character interaction.

A list of Classic Mode routes and their cutscenes, see here.

Mid Bosses

Count Cannoli
Wario: Master of Disguise (2007)
Count Cannoli
Count Cannoli, also known as the Silver Zephyr, is the main antagonist of Wario: Master of Disguise. He is a gentleman thief who stars in the TV show "The Silver Zephyr", a show Wario watches regularly. His acts of thievery prompt Wario to enter the show himself and steal his wand, Goodstyle. Throughout the game, Count Cannoli tries to get his wand back and get revenge on Wario.

As a midboss in Classic Mode, Count Cannoli will battle the player in his large robot, the Mad Hat Mk. I. He will attack by throwing bombs that explode on impact, as well as flying across the area with his drill. After the mech is destroyed, Cannoli uses another mech, the Mad Hat Mk. II. This mech has an arm with a spiked ball, which he will use to punch the player, and he can drop more bombs. After taking enough damage, Cannoli goes into a final phase and summons the Mad Hat Mk. III. It has the same attacks as the previous mech, though it is completely invincible. After awhile, it will charge up a sliding punch, exposing its weak point, a button, after hitting a wall. This button must be attacked to damage him. After this mech is destroyed, Cannoli is sent flying, defeated.

Culex
Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars (1996)
CulexCrystals
Culex is a secret boss in Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars. He is a warrior from a different dimension, and desires to do battle with warriors from the Mushroom Kingdom. He can be battled in Monstro Town if Mario and friends collected the Shiny Stone, opening a door that leads to his realm. Here, they can either accept or refuse to battle with Culex. If he is defeated, he departs from the Mushroom Kingdom, giving them the Quartz Charm as a reward.

Culex is battled alongside the Earth Crystal, Fire Crystal, Water Crystal, and Wind Crystal. Each of the crystals have their own abilities that they use at random intervals. Culex himself will try to attack with magic abilities, such as shockwaves that can freeze the player or causing crystals to rise from the ground. The crystals are not required to be defeated, though they will continue attacking throughout the battle. However, defeating a crystal will cause it to explode into Culex, damaging him.

Dr. Eggman
Sonic the Hedgehog (1991)
DrEggman
Dr. Eggman is a scientist and the main antagonist of the Sonic series. Using his superior intellect, Eggman creates various machines in the hopes of taking over the world and creating his own robotic metropolis. However, in almost every encounter, Sonic and friends foil his evil plots.

When Dr. Eggman is encountered as a midboss, he is found in his EggMobile, dangling a heavy ball under it. He will swing it around to try and damage the player. If he takes enough damage, he will escape and reappear in a large mech with arms. He will try to grab the player and throw them, slam them, or drag them across the ground. Dr. Eggman will change mechs after a third time after taking enough damage, using the Death Egg Robot to punch and stomp the player. After enough damage, the Death Egg Robot will be destroyed, exploding and sending Dr. Eggman flying into the distance.

Dracula
Castlevania (1987)
SSBU Dracula Spirit
Dracula, full name Count Dracula Vlad Ţepeş, is the main antagonist of the Castlevania series, based on Vlad the Impaler and the titular antagonist of the Bram Stoker novel Dracula. He commands an army of monsters and is the lord of a haunted castle. He is opposed by the Belmont blood clan of vampire hunters, but although they and other heroes repeatedly kill him, he and his castle are revived once every century. His design in Super Smash Bros. is based on his artwork in Castlevania: Symphony of the Night.

As a midboss in Classic Mode, he is initially battled in his humanoid form. He will teleport around the arena, and use several magical abilities such as fireballs, pillars of flames, and transforming into a swarm of bats. He can only be damaged from attacks that hit his head. After taking enough damage, he will then turn into his demon form from Castlevania: Rondo of Blood. In this state, he will hop around the stage often, and attacks with claw swipes, stomps, and even more magic attacks. After he is defeated, he disappears.

Duon
Super Smash Bros. Brawl (2008)
Duon Spirit Render
Duon is a massive mech used by the Subspace Army that served as a boss in The Subspace Emissary in Brawl. It was created from the Shadow Bugs of multiple Mr. Game & Watch clones. It consists of two bodies; one with cannons and one with blades, and they will attack depending on which side is facing the player. The blade side mainly uses powerful physical attacks while the cannon side can launch projectiles such as bombs and missiles. They also have shared attacks, such as ramming into the player or jumping on them; they usually change sides after these attacks.

Galleom
Super Smash Bros. Brawl (2008)
Galleom SSBU
Galleom is a tank-like mech constructed by the Subspace Army, and served as a boss in The Subspace Emissary in Brawl, and was later a boss in Classic Mode and World of Light in Ultimate. When battled as a midboss, he acts much like he did in both of his appearances; he mainly attacks with punches and forearm clubs, though he also has advanced moves such as shooting missiles that explode on impact, spinning around with his arms outstretched, jumping to stomp on the fighter, and turning into his tank form to rush forward.

Ganon
The Legend of Zelda (1996)
1.1.Beast Ganon Standing
Ganon is the main antagonist of the The Legend of Zelda series. His first appearance is in the original The Legend of Zelda, though he took a humanoid form known as Ganondorf in The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time. Since then, the name Ganondorf is used for his Gerudo form and the name Ganon is used for his monster form. Ganon's design is based off of his appearance in The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time.

When encountered in Classic Mode, Ganondorf initially appears before he transforms into Ganon. He has several attacks involving the twin swords he wields, including slashing, spinning, and slamming them on the ground. His entire body is invincible from the player's attacks, with the exception of his bright-green tail. The tail is the only way to damage him, though if he is hit with a strong enough attack, he will be stunned, with his head becoming another weakness.

Giga Bowser
Super Smash Bros. Melee (2001)
DiscordGigaBowser
Giga Bowser is a much larger and fearsome form Bowser can take in Super Smash Bros. Melee, acting as the final boss of Adventure Mode. As a midboss in Classic Mode, the battle initially starts with a giant Bowser. After the player KOs him, he will reappear on the stage and transform into Giga Bowser. He has many of the same abilities as Bowser, but is also much stronger and is sometimes enhanced with different effects such as fire, ice, and darkness. Unlike many other bosses, Giga Bowser lacks a health meter, and as such needs to be KO'ed normally.
SSB Super Smash Bros. Series SSBM Icon
Hooktail
Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door (2004)
Hooktail
Hooktail is a large dragon and the first major boss encountered in Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door. She resides in Petal Meadows, and constantly flies by thenearby town of Petalburg to find people to eat. Koopley, Koops' father, tried to fight Hooktail, but ended up being eaten. Mario traveled to Hooktail Castle with Koops to face the dragon himself, and after defeating her, Koopley was freed and Mario found the first Crystal Star.

When Hooktail is battled as a midboss, the battle hilariously functions like an RPG battle. The player can only damage Hooktail during their turn, and will need to dodge her attacks during her turn. Hooktail's attacks include fire breath, stomping, causing earthquakes by jumping, and biting. An audience is also present during the battle, who can give the player helpful items if they land strong enough attacks. After Hooktail's health meter is depleted, she eats the audience to regain all of her health back. The second phase is identical to the first phase, though there is no audience to help the player.

Kraid
Metroid (1986)
Kraid SSBGR
Kraid is one of the bosses in Metroid and served as a commanding officer of the Space Pirates on Zebes alongside Ridley. Though he was about Samus' height in his original appearance, he was significantly larger in later games, being among the biggest beasts that Samus ever battled. His main attacks consisted of throwing organic projectiles from his claws and stomach.

As a midboss, Kraid fights from the background, and the player has to attack his limbs when they come in range. Kraid can attack by slamming his arms on the ground to bury the player, as well as lean into the stage and try to bite. Both of these attacks are the only time Kraid can be attacked, as all other times in battle he is out of range. Other attacks he has include firing projectiles from his stomach and claws, as well as shaking the arena to cause boulders to fall down.

Mecha Ridley
Metroid: Zero Mission (2004)
Mecha Ridley
Mecha Ridley is a large, incomplete robot built by Ridley that serves as the final boss in Metroid: Zero Mission. It lacks walking and flying units, and as such has cables connected to a power interface. When Samus is exploring Chozodia and most of the Space Pirate Mothership, she enters a dark room where Mecha Ridley is battled.

As a Classic Mode midboss, Mecha Ridley will stay stationary. He will attack by spitting fireballs, launching missiles from a launcher on his back, and slashing with his giant metal claws. His weak point is a bright light on his chest, which is concealed by a glass barrier. This barrier must be broken in order to attack it and damage Mecha Ridley. After losing most of his health, Mecha Ridley will begin to short-circuit, attacking faster while also occasionally damaging the player if they are too close with electricity. Once all of his health is depleted, Mecha Ridley will explode.

Piranha Trio
Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island (1995)
Piranha Trio Charged
The Piranha Trio is a team of Piranha Plant bosses battled throughout the Yoshi series, consisting of Naval Piranha from Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island, Big Bungee Piranha from Yoshi's Island DS, and Spike the Piranha from Yoshi's Crafted World. All three of these bosses were created with Kamek's magic, increasing their size and strength to impede Yoshi and Baby Mario's progress.

When initially encountered as a midboss in Classic Mode, three Piranha Plants are present. However, they jump into the water below, and grow much bigger. The three have their own separate health bars, and attack independently of one another. Naval Piranha will attack with her Naval Buds, as well as try to ram into the player. Big Bungee Piranha resides on the top of the screen and will drop down to try and eat the player, and uses his Bungee Buds to attack. Spike the Piranha will try and smash his head into the ground, as well as spit spiky seeds. After one of the three is defeated, they will wilt and disappear, and the other two will become faster and stronger. The last of the trio standing will become even stronger once the other is defeated.

Rathalos
Monster Hunter (2004)
Rathalos SSBU
The Rathalos is a common monster that appears in the Monster Hunter series, being the most well-known in the series. It is said to descend upon invaders from the sky, attacking them with its fire breath and poisonous claws. Rathalos can be hunted, and its remains can be used for armor.

When battled, Rathalos will fly around the arena, launching fireballs at fighters that explode on impact as its main attack. It can also fly into the background where it will be out of reach, and launch more fireballs from there. Aside from this, it can try to ram into fighters, as well as land on the ground and try to slash with its claws.

Rayquaza
Pokémon Ruby and Pokémon Sapphire (2004)
384Rayquaza
Rayquaza is a Dragon / Flying dual-type Sky High Legendary Pokémon introduced in Generation III. It is not known to evolve into or from any other Pokémon. Rayquaza is said to have lived for hundreds of millions of years in the ozone layer, feeding off of water and other particles. Whenever Groudon and Kyogre engage in a cataclysmic battle, it would stop them and soothe them, even in their Primal forms.

Rayquaza fights similarly to how it did as a boss in The Subspace Emissary in Brawl; it attacks by moving around the area to damage fighters, as well as flying through the air to slam into them. It can also create electric projectiles to deal heavy damage. Once defeated however, it will Mega Evolve into Mega Rayquaza. In this state, it gains a new set of attacks and is constantly hovering in the air rather than staying grounded. It is overall stronger in this form, and some of its attacks can inflict paralysis.

The Devil
Cuphead (2017)
The Devil
The Devil is the main antagonist in Cuphead. After seeing Cuphead on a winning streak in his casino, he offers a deal, giving Cuphead the casino's riches if he wins, and taking his soul if he loses. Blinded by greed, Cuphead agrees, and loses. The Devil makes another offer after Cuphead and Mugman beg for a second chance, telling them to collect the contracts of other people that owe him their souls. By the end, he serves as the final boss, and defeating him sets the debtors free.

The Devil's battle consists of two phases. In the first phase, he is sitting on his throne in the background as small imps run across the stage. He can use a variety of attacks, such as creating blue fireballs that spin around the stage, turning his head into a spider that bounces around the arena, and extending his hands to clap and damage the player if they are caught i it. After taking enough damage, his skeleton jumps out of his body and he leaps underground. The player must follow, starting the secod phase where he is giant and the player must platform between five platforms. He has different attacks in this phase, such as creating flying axes with his eyes and spawning bombs from his ears. Fiery poker chips can also fall on the platforms.

Final Bosses

Master Hand
Super Smash Bros. (1999)
Master Hand SSBU
Master Hand is a powerful being of unknown origin, acting as the embodiment of creation. He seems to enjoy battling chosen warriors. As a final boss of Classic Mode, Master Hand will use the same attacks he has been using throughout the series; punching, poking, grabbing, flicking, and crushing. He can also fire lasers, shoot bullets out of his fingers, and create windboxes by flapping himself around. He will be defeated after all of his health is depleted.
SSB Super Smash Bros. Series SSB64 Icon
Crazy Hand
Super Smash Bros. Melee (2002)
Crazy Hand SSBU
Crazy Hand is the crazed counterpart of Master Hand. While the latter is the embodiment of creation, Crazy Hand is the embodiment of destruction. He can be battled alongside Master Hand at higher difficulties. While he shares many of the same attacks, they are weaker but usually inflict a secondary status ailment. He also has attacks of his own, from dropping bombs, to opening rifts in space-time, to flailing around on the ground. Both hands must be defeated to win. He can also be battled in Crazy Orders.
SSB Super Smash Bros. Series SSBM Icon

Quest Mode

Quest Mode is inspired by the Adventure Mode in Melee and Milky Way Wishes in Kirby Super Star and Kirby Super Star Ultra. As in the latter mode, players must select from planets based on various universes represented in the game. Any of them can be picked, which throws them into a set of stages based on that series, usually involving a platforming stage and a battle against characters from that series. Some bosses can also be battled as well. Upon beating a certain number of planets, a portal to Final Destination opens, where players must battle Master Core who serves as the final boss. However, it is also possible to ignore Subspace and play more levels; this puts the player at risk of losing, but also grants more rewards.

As in Classic Mode, the intensity can be set from 0.1 to 9.0. Not only does this raise the difficulty of the stages, but it also requires more stages to be complete before Final Destination can be accessed.

Boss Rush Mode

Boss Rush Mode is very similar to Boss Battles in Brawl, pitting the player against every boss battled in Classic Mode and Quest Mode, one by one. As with the two aforementioned modes, the intensity can be set from 0.1 to 9.0, determining the difficulty of the bosses. Much like The Arena in the Kirby series, players have access to a rest area between bosses, and have several recovery items to replenish their health. The final battle is always against Master Core, but the order for every other boss is randomized.

Similar to All-Star Mode in Smash 4 and Ultimate, upon beating Labyrinth of Ancients, True Boss Rush Mode is unlocked, which includes all of the bosses battled in Labyrinth of Ancients in addition to the Classic Mode and Quest Mode bosses. More health items are provided to accommodate for the additional fights.

All-Star Mode

After being merged with Multi-Man Smash in Ultimate, All-Star Mode appears as its own separate mode. Like Melee and Brawl, it is unlocked only after every playable character has been unlocked. Like Classic Mode, the difficulty can be set from 0.1 (Effortless) to 9.9 (Nothing Harder!).

As in all previous versions of the mode, the player must battle every other playable character. In terms of function, it is most similar to its appearance in Smash 4, where the player must battle waves of fighters before moving to the rest area. Opponents are battled in waves of 15, and the order can be set by the player so they are battled randomly, by number, by debut, or by series. Additionally, especially on higher difficulties, characters can randomly appear in their Charged State, making them more difficult to defeat.

Recovering health between stages works differently compared to previous games. Every time the player visits the rest area, a Heart Container will always be provided. However, it will only replenish 100% health rather than all of it, unlike previous games. This means that while players can heal after every stage, they still need to keep track of their health.

The different orders for battling opponents in All-Star Mode are listed below.

Spirit Orders

Spirit Orders is a combination of Special Orders in Smash 4 and Spirits in Ultimate. Throughout the mode, players are able to battle Spirits and recruit them in a similar way to Ultimate, allowing them to be used in other modes. Beating a Spirit will also unlock their respective Trophy. Spirit Orders is set in two different modes: Master Orders and Crazy Orders.

  • Master Orders is hosted by Master Hand. In this mode, players can take on a series of randomly-selected Spirit battles with set conditions, similar to Event Matches in previous games. Upon winning a Spirit battle, the player can obtain the Spirit for use at any time. If they fail however, they can either try again or switch the Spirit battle to something else for 200 Gold. Spirit battles are listed in four difficulties; ★, ★★, ★★★, and ★★★★. Higher difficulties can award better Spirits however.
  • Crazy Orders is hosted by Crazy Hand. It requires either 1000 Gold or a Crazy Orders Pass to play. Unlike Master Orders, Crazy Orders is more of an endurance run, where players must beat a series of Spirit battles at varying difficulties. Players carry their damage as the mode goes on, but will heal half of the damage after every Spirit battle. After winning one Spirit battle, players have the option to fight Crazy Hand. Like Master Orders, players can obtain Spirits and Trophies by winning Spirit battles, but they must defeat Crazy Hand before they can be awarded. If at any point in the mode they lose a battle, all of the player loses all of their winnings and must pay to play the mode again.

Stadium

Stadium consists of several different minigames players can play, usually testing their skills on various fronts. The modes available for Stadium are:

  • Target Smash!! returns after being absent in Smash 4 and Ultimate. The goal is to break 10 Targets as quick as possible. As in Smash 64 and Melee, every character has a unique Target Smash!! level, which takes full advantage of their abilities and moves.
  • Board the Platforms returns from Smash 64. The goal, similar to Target Smash!!, is to land on all the 10 yellow platforms, making them shine. Also like Target Smash!!, every character has their own Board the Platforms stage.
  • Race to the Finish returns from Melee, involving the player to move through an obstacle course as fast as possible to reach the finish line. Every character has their own Race to the Finish stage, like Target Smash!! and Board the Platforms.
  • Home-Run Contest returns from previous games. The goal is to deal as much damage to Sandbag as possible, and then launch it off of the starting platform to make it fly as far as possible. Players are provided a Home-Run Bat to both damage and launch it.
  • Multi-Man Smash returns from previous games. As in Smash 4 and Ultimate, the enemies for this mode are the Fighting Mii Team, and the goal is to KO all of them under different conditions. The different modes are as follows:
    • 10-Man Smash: The player must defeat 10 Fighting Mii Team members.
    • 100-Man Smash: The player must defeat 100 Fighting Mii Team members.
    • 3-Minute Smash: The player must defeat as many Fighting Mii Team members as possible within three minutes.
    • 15-Minute Smash: The player must defeat as many Fighting Mii Team members as possible within 15 minutes.
    • Mob Smash: The player is pitted against an opponent, and must defeat more Fighting Mii Team members than them.
    • Endless Smash: The player must defeat as many Fighting Mii Team members as possible before they are KO'ed.
    • Cruel Smash: The Fighting Mii Team members are much stronger and resilient, and items aren't provided. The player must beat as many of them as possible until they are KO'ed.

Smash Run DX

Smash Run DX is an evolution of Smash Run from Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS. It retains many of the same mechanics from the aforementioned mode; players will venture through a massive labyrinth to find and defeat enemies, participate in challenges, and find treasure to collect Stat Boosts. These will boost the player's stats, which will help them in a final match against the other four players; whoever wins this match will win the game.

There are some notable additions Smash Run DX however. Like City Trial in Kirby Air Ride, players may encounter each other while exploring the map, and can attack each other. If one player defeats another, they will receive half of the Stat Boosts that the other player lost. The mode also features customization; players can set the time limit from anywhere from three to 10 minutes, set the rarity of special event, and set the enemy encounter rate. Players may also choose to give themselves a handicap or an advantage, increasing or decreasing the damage and knockback they take from enemies' attacks respectively. However, players with an advantage will be rewarded less Stat Boosts, while players with a handicap will be rewarded with more Stat Boosts.

Lastly, Smash Run DX is split into a further four modes, which are listed below:

  • Basic Run is most similar to Smash Run in Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS. Players must collect Stat Boosts from defeating enemies, increasing their stats to help them in the final battle.
  • Speed Run has every player at max stats by default. However, they will gradually decrease. As such, players need to keep collecting Stat Boosts to prevent their stats from being too low for the final battle.
  • Point Run is different from the other modes in that points are provided for defeating enemies rather than Stat Boosts. The points each enemy provides is dependent on how difficult they are to defeat, with stronger enemies providing more points. Before the final battle, the players' points are converted into Stat Boosts, with more points awarding more Stat Boosts, helping them for the final battle.
  • Boss Run features exclusive, powerful enemies that will appear in random areas of the labyrinth throughout the game. While the mode plays like Basic Run, these powerful enemies are the only ones that reward significant Stat Boosts for defeating them. Whenever one appears, they are shown on the map in the form of a red "!".

Basic Enemies

Amazy Dayzee
Paper Mario (2000)
Amazee Dayzee
Amazy Dayzees are a variant of Crayzee Dayzees that appear in the Paper Mario series. They are golden and extremely rare. In Paper Mario and Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door, they have a tendency to flee from battle before they can be defeated, and on top of that, their singing attack deals extreme amounts of damage. In Super Paper Mario, they can shift between 2D and 3D while running away from the player, making them really hard to damage.

Amazy Dayzees are extremely rare enemies, and are rarely ever encountered in Smash Run DX. They have high health and high knockback resistance, and if the player gets close enough to them, they'll run away. Their sole attack is singing, causing a music note to appear which deals heavy damage and puts the player to sleep on contact. Upon defeat, they will release a large amount of Stat Boosts, though if not defeated quick enough, they will shift to 3D and disappear.

MegaManArcWeldy
Arc Weldies are small welding robot enemies that appear in Mega Man 11. They move slowly across the ground and use their welding torches to burn pools of molten metal into the ground. These will harm Mega Man if he steps in them.

Arc Weldies will act just as they do in Mega Man 11; they move slowly along the ground and use their welding torches to cover the ground in molten metal. While the Arc Wendlies themselves don't damage fighters, the molten metal can. They have weak health and can be disposed of easily.

Ariados
Pokémon Gold and Pokémon Silver (1999)
168Ariados
Ariados is a Bug / Poison dual-type Long Leg Pokémon introduced in Generation II. It evolves from Spinarak. Unlike most spiders, Ariados will actively hunt for prey. It will attach silk to its prey before setting it free, only to track it down and find it and its friends to have a bigger meal.

Ariados can only be found in areas with ceilings. If a player is underneath them, it will drop down and grab them. If successful, it will use Toxic Thread, a non-damaging Poison-type move introduced in Generation VII. It traps the player in purple silk, which gradually damages them and lowers their stats. Players can break free from it quicker by button-mashing. Ariados has low health, but if knocked away, it will scurry and find a new hiding place, making it difficult to defeat.

Armank
Armanks are green, blob-like enemies that control large tanks, appearing in Super Smash Bros. Brawl as enemies encountered in the Subspace Emissary.

If a fighter approaches one, they will reveal a large, claw-like mech that will bite at them and shoot projectiles. This mech can be destroyed, and after enough damage, it will explode. The Armank will appear out of its tank in a panicked state, where it will take heavy damage from attacks.

Attacky Sack
Attacky Sacks are large, multicolored balls with faces that appear in Yoshi's Story. It will slowly bounce off of walls, and is invincible. As such, it must be avoided at all costs.

Attacky Sacks cannot be defeated, and serve more as obstacles than enemies. They will bounce around the area, damaging players that they hit, and even burying players they land on. However, Attacky Sacks will also damage enemies they hit, so they can be helpful in some situations.

Autolance SSBB
Autolances are enemies that appear in Super Smash Bros. Brawl that appear as enemies in the Subspace Emissary. They are small tanks that wear large helmets. They have a lot of health and travel slowly, and have very high launch resistance to boot. They attack by protruding a lance from their front, either as a melee attack or throwing in an arc as a projectile. After taking enough damage, the Autolance's helmet will fly off, revealing a flashing yellow light. Attacking this light will deal much more damage.

Bacura
Xevious (1983)
Bacura
Bacuras are rectangular spinning enemies that appear in Namco's Xevious series. They act as obstacles that the player must avoid, and cannot be defeated by normal means. Since their debut, they have also appeared in other Namco-developed titles as easter egg enemies.

Bacuras usually appear in groups, falling from the sky and damaging fighters they hit. They cannot be damaged and will reflect any projectiles thrown at them; as such, they serve more as obstacles than enemies.

Balloon Fight Enemy
Balloon Fight (1984)
BalloonFightEnemyNES
Balloon Fight Enemies are the main enemies in Balloon Fight. In order to beat a level, the player would have to ram into their balloons, causing them to drop to the ground. In this state, they can be rammed into again to be defeated, but if the player isn't quick enough, they will blow more balloons and begin floating again.

Balloon Fight Enemies will appear in their NES sprites. When they encounter fighters, they will try to rush into them to deal damage. They can have one to three balloons, which dictate the number of hits they will take before being defeated. Once all balloons are popped, they will award Stat Boosts.

Banzai Bill
Super Mario World (1991)
BanzaibillNSMBU
Banzai Bills are massive Bullet Bills, usually being fired at Mario from off-screen. Although they have the same weaknesses and capabilities as normal Bullet Bills, their increased size makes them much more difficult to deal with.

Banzai Bills can be fired from off-screen, and will either fly slowly in a straight line or home in on nearby fighters. It will damage them on impact, so projectiles and disjointed attacks are recommended for attacking it. They do, however, have a lot of health and have knockback resistance. If a Banzai Bill flies into a wall, it will remain stuck in there before flashing, exploding afterwards and heavily damaging any fighters caught in the blast radius.

Big Goomba
Super Mario Bros. 3 (1989)
Grand Goomba and Goombas SM3DW
Big Goombas are, as their name suggests, larger Goombas that appear as semi-common enemies in the Mario series. Though they are larger and harder to avoid, they can still be defeated by stomping on them. Starting with New Super Mario Bros. Wii, stomping on a Big Goomba would cause it to split into two regular Goombas.

Big Goombas act like normal Goombas, with their main attack being to charge into players. However, they sport much more health and have launch resistance, along with their charging attack dealing much more damage. They can also stomp on the ground, causing players to trip. They also won't be defeated by the player stomping them; instead, this must be done three times.

Bloon
Bloons (2007)
Bloon
Bloons are the namesake of the Bloons series. They are seemingly animate ballons that come in many colors and sizes. In Bloons Tower Defense, the goal is to stop the Bloons from reaching the other end of the map using towers. Each variety of Bloons is stronger than the last, each holding a different layer of Bloon when attacked. Red Bloons are the weakest variety, and always the final layer to be popped. They can also have modifications, such as Camo Bloons that can't be seen my towers without Camo detection or Regen Bloons that regenerate their layers if not attacked for a short time.

Bloons are among the most unique enemies in Smash Run DX, and act as they do in Bloons, where they simply stand in midair and only drift around slowly. They have no attacks, so players can keep attacking it to damage it. After each attack, a Bloon will pop and reveal the layer below it. Each variant can also come in a Camo variety where they disappear and reappear in a new location randomly, a Regen variety that will gradually restore its layers if not attacked quick enough, a Fortified variety that takes double the attacks to pop, or any combination of the three. Bloons only award Stat Boosts when the last Red Bloon is popped, with stronger varieties granting more Stat Boosts. The different Bloon varieties and their properties are listed below, from weakest to strongest:
  • Red Bloons have no layers.
  • Blue Bloons hold a single Red Bloon.
  • Green Bloons hold a single Blue Bloon.
  • Yellow Bloons hold a single Green Bloon.
  • Pink Bloons hold a single Yellow Bloon.
  • Black Bloons hold two Pink Bloons. They are immune to fire attacks.
  • White Bloons hold two Pink Bloons. They are immune to ice attacks.
  • Purple Bloons hold two Pink Bloons. They are immune to physical attacks.

They often wield Boko Clubs or Boko Bows.
