Super Smash Bros. Charged Logo

Super Smash Bros. Charged (グレートフレイスマッシュブラザーズチャージアップ 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

Gameplay changes from Ultimate

  • All characters have access to new types of attacks, which include the following:
    • Crash Attacks, which are similar to Smash Attacks, but performed in midair.
    • Shield Counters, which are performed when the player presses the attack button after they successfully Perfect Shields an attack. However, this significantly weakens the shield.
      • All characters who previously had Counters as special moves have been replaced with the exception of Incineroar and Bayonetta, who keep Revenge and Witch Time respectively.
    • Charged States, performed by pressing the attack and special buttons simultaneously when the player has reached 150% or over. Similar to transformation Final Smashes in Brawl and Smash 4, players become a stronger version of themselves, allowing them to deal heavy damage and knockback. They are, however, still vulnerable to attacks and can be KO'ed in this state.
  • Custom Moves return from Smash 4. However, an effort has been made to make them more different than the base move, granting the player more options. As such, they have more difference in abilities and application to each other, similar to Mega Man's Custom Moves in Smash 4.
  • Rage no longer has a cap, and knockback from attacks will continually increase as the players take more damage.
  • Perfect Shielding can now be done as the Shield is activated or deactivated. In the former case, the screen will pause just as it does in the latter case.
  • Footstools can no longer be teched as in Brawl and Smash 4.
    • However, via button mashing, players can exit the tumbling animation faster.
  • Gliding from Brawl returns.

All 82 playable characters from Ultimate return, alongside several newcomers. Much like Ultimate, the game has a rather small starting roster, all of which are "The Original 12". All other characters must be unlocked.

The concept of Echo Fighters also returns, though a greater effort has been made to make them more different from their base character. As such, the definition of an Echo Fighter has changed slightly and made more loose, allowing them to have different moves and properties than their base fighter, like Chrom in Ultimate. As a result of this, two characters that were considered Echo Fighters in Ultimate (Daisy and Dark Pit) are now no longer considered as such. As mentioned, Crash Co.'s own properties and games are taken as canon alongside Nintendo's franchises.

Mario
Donkey Kong (1981)
MarioPortrait
Mario (マリオ, Mario) is the main protagonist of the Mario series, and is Nintendo's flagship character. He first appeared in Donkey Kong, where he had to rescue his girlfriend Pauline, who was kidnapped by Donkey Kong. Since then, he has starred in over 300 games of varying genres. His mainline games, the platformers, often revolve around him going on an adventure to rescue Princess Peach from Bowser. Most of the other games he appears in often have him participating in sports, from kart racing, to tennis, to baseball, to a wrestling / volleyball hybrid.

Mario is portrayed as the "jack-of-all-trades" character, and as such has balanced stats overall, with middle-of-the-road weight, jump height, attack power, and mobility. However, he has near unmatched frame data, allowing him to quickly combo opponents and rack up damage. He also has a decent selection of finishers.

Mario's moveset has been completely retooled from previous games, now taking inspiration from Crash Co.'s Super Mario Allies. As such, his moveset utilizes Cappy, F.L.U.D.D., Baby Luma, Posi & Nega, and McCraw in order to give him a varied range of attacks, each of which are useful for any situation. Some notable examples include Posi and Nega extending Mario's limbs to cover more range, or Mario using Cappy as a boomerang to damage opponents or use him as a recovery tool.

  • Charged State - Rainbow Mario: Mario uses a Rainbow Star to become Rainbow Mario. In this state, Mario is a lot faster and can deal more damage. His falling speed is also decreased, increasing his aerial prowess and recovery tremendously.

Luigi
Mario Bros. (1983)
Luigi SSBUltimate
Luigi (ルイージ, Luigi) is a major character in the Mario series. He is Mario's taller, thinner twin brother, who serves as the "player 2" character for the platformer games. Though he often tags along with Mario on his adventures, he is known for being extremely cowardly, often preferring to not battle enemies. He has a rival, King Boo, who he often has to defeat with the help of Professor E. Gadd.

Luigi is an extremely awkward character to new players. He is a middleweight with moderate speed, the highest jump height in the game, but also among the slowest air speed. His attacks are quick and deal minimal damage, making them ideal for combos. Uniquely, he slides along the ground while turning like in the Mario series, but he can perform any of his ground attacks while doing so, similar to wavedashing in Melee.

Luigi's moveset itself is rather quirky, featuring unorthodox animations and hitboxes. These can be somewhat difficult to land, but they are effective at starting combos and even escaping out of combos himself. He also has the only taunt in the game that can damage opponents; a kick that meteor smashes anyone near him.

  • Up Special - Green Rocket: Luigi stores energy before blasting himself upward, damaging opponents with a leaping headbutt and falling into a semi-helpless state afterwards. The special button can be held for the move to charge, increasing its distance and damage, and directional inputs can be used to change the angle Luigi fires in.

    • Custom 3 - Turbulent Header: Luigi creates windboxes when he lands, pushing opponents nearby backward. The attack itself deals no damage.
  • Final Smash - Negative Zone: Luigi begins dancing as a large area around him becomes negative. Opponents in this zone become inflicted with various effects, from sleeping, to slowness, to having a flower grow on their heads, etc. Luigi's attack power is also much higher while within the zone, and he has permanent super armor. After awhile, the zone will disappear.
  • Charged State - Negative Luigi: Luigi dances, converting himself to negative colors. In this state, he has much faster air speed and much slower air speed, giving him more aerial prowess. His moves also deal more damage, and most of them are darkness-empowered as well.

Peach
Super Mario Bros. (1985)
SSB Ultimate Peach with Perry
Peach (ピーチ, Peach) is one of the main characters in the Mario series. She is the princess of the Mushroom Kingdom, and typically gets kidnapped by Bowser, only to be saved by Mario. As such, in the platformer games, she usually serves as the damsel-in-distress, though has had a few playable appearances of her own. She also serves as a love interest for Mario.

Peach has the ability to float of the control stick is held up; in this state, she can drift left and right and use aerial attacks without falling down. This also gives her an impressive recovery, which is complemented by her slow falling speed and high jump height. She isn't very fast, but her attacks are strong. Based on her sole starring role in Super Princess Peach, she has a unique Vibe Meter seen by her icon. It will gradually fill up as Peach delivers and takes damage, and once full, she can use the vibe the meter is set to for a short time, allowing her to boost her stats and abilities. The vibe can be altered with her down special, Vibe Change.

Because of her new Vibe Meter, Peach's moveset has been tweaked. Many of her new attacks involve her parasol friend Perry. This gives her moves more range compared to her previous moveset.

      • Rage: In Rage state, Peach becomes a lot stronger and can KO opponents quicker. Her attacks also become enhanced in fire. She glows red while in this state.
      • Gloom: In Gloom state, Peach will cry continuously, with her tears being able to make opponents slip. She is also faster on both the ground and in the air. She glows blue while in this state.
      • Calm: In this state, Peach's stats will slightly decrease, but every attack she lands allows her to heal some of her health, being x0.5 of the damage each attack deals. She glows green while in this state.
    • Custom 1 - Extreme Vibes: The vibes' effects are much more pronounced, but it takes longer to fill the Vibe Meter.
    • Custom 2 - Tame Vibes: The vibes' effects are less pronounced, but they remain active for longer.
    • Custom 3 - Mood Swings: It takes less time to fill the Vibe Meter, but the effects don't last as long.
  • Final Smash - Mixed Emotions: Peach enters her Gloom state and begins crying while rushing forward. If she hits an opponent, they are locked in a cinematic where they are sent into the sky, and Peach, in her Joy state, begins smacking them repeatedly. Finally, she enters her Rage state and Ground Pounds them into the ground, sending them back to the stage and dealing heavy damage and knockback.
  • Charged State - Heart Power: Peach dances around before empowering herself with hearts. In this state, while the Vibe Meter is inactive, she has a lot of the traits of her vibe states combined; she jumps higher like Joy, deals more damage like Rage, and runs faster like Gloom.

Bowser
Super Mario Bros. (1985)
BowserNSMBUDX
Bowser (クッパ, Koopa) is the king of the Koopa Troop, and the main antagonist of the Mario series. Most games see him trying to kidnap Princess Peach or take over the Mushroom Kingdom. However, Mario manages to foil his schemes and defeat him. His plans almost never work, and at times has even teamed up with Mario on occasion, though usually only to stop a greater evil. He leads an entire army of turtle-like beings called Koopas, which serve as basic enemies in the Mario series.

Bowser, fittingly, is one of the heaviest characters in the game. He has universal super armor, known in-game as "Tough Guy", which allows him to withstand attacks that deal 5% damage or less without flinching (with exceptions, such as Cloud's Finishing Touch). Furthermore, attacks that have him enter his shell grant him invincibility. This allows him to tank through opponents' attacks and deal heavy damage. He also has an excellent grab game, with all of them being effective at setting up combos.

Most of Bowser's abilities are taken from his attacks in his boss battles in the Mario series. These attacks can reach ludicrous strengths and can KO opponents quickly. His range is also good, if only because of the sheer size of his frame. His basic attacks mostly consist of punches, claw swipes, and using the spikes on his shell.

Dr. Mario
Dr. Mario (1990)
DrMario SSBUltimate
Dr. Mario (ドクターマリオ, Doctor Mario) is the doctor persona of Mario that he appears in the Dr. Mario puzzle series. In those games, he works alongside Dr. Luigi and Nurse Peach at the Mushroom Kingdom Hospital, working to destroy Viruses using colorful pills called Megavitamins. To do this, Megavitamins of the same color must be lined up with the corresponding Virus color, which will eliminate them. Once all Viruses are eliminated, the level is complete.

In previous Super Smash Bros. titles, Dr. Mario was considered a slower, stronger clone of Mario. However, since the former has gained a new moveset, Dr. Mario is moreso used to retain Mario's previous moveset. As in previous games, Dr. Mario has a lot of attack power, allowing him to deliver KOs quite easily. However, he has gained quite a noticeable boost in mobility, allowing him to combo opponents better. His frame data is also arguably as fast as Mario's in previous games, which helps him rack up damage before following with a KO move.

Although many of Dr. Mario's basic attacks are similar to Mario's, the two also have completely different moves. Many of them focus on delivering heavy damage and knockback, though he has a few moves available for combos. As mentioned, his moveset is directly derived from Mario's previous moveset.

Bowser Jr.
Super Mario Sunshine (2002)
BowserJr SSBUltimate
Bowser Jr. (クッパJr, Koopa Junior) is the secondary antagonist of the Mario series. As his name suggests, he is the son of Bowser, and heir to the Koopa throne. He often assists his father in his schemes to kidanp Peach or take over the Mushroom Kingdom, though he has also tried to perform villainous acts on his own to impress Bowser. Some titles hint that Bowser Jr. may actually be lonely and wants friends.

Bowser Jr. pilots the Jr. Clown Car, a vehicle he uses in various Mario games. This gives him a unique attribute where attacks that hit the Jr. Clown Car will take 0.5x the damage. The Jr. Clown Car also has universal super armor; attacks that deal 20 units or less of knockback that hit the Jr. Clown Car will not make Bowser Jr. flinch. These defensive increases also apply to attacks that hit Bowser Jr.'s entire frame, most notably grabs and throws. The Jr. Clown Car also allows him to float in midair for a short time if the jump button is held.

As he is always in the Jr. Clown Car, most of Bowser Jr.'s moveset consists of utilizing various gadgets stored inside it. This can range from boxing gloves, to wrecking balls, to Grinders. He can also use other weapons such as a hammer. Overall, his attacks are weak compared to other heavyweights in terms of damage output, but they deliver a lot of knockback. All of his attacks are also disjointed, allowing him to battle from a safe distance.

Daisy
Super Mario Land (1989)
DaisyCharged
Daisy (デイジー, Daisy) is a recurring character in the Mario series. She debuted in Super Mario Land, acting as the damsel-in-distress, and has since appeared in several Mario spin-offs. She is a tomboy, and despite being polar opposites with Peach personality-wise, they two are great friends. She is also the love interest for Luigi, much like how Peach is the love interest for Mario.

Daisy, like Peach, can float in the air for a short time, allowing her to chain aerial attacks together. She has moderate speed while on the ground, though has low jump height. Her attacks, like Peach, deliver a lot of damage and knockback, allowing her to KO opponents easily. However, because of her light weight, opponents can launch her just as easily.

Because Peach has a new moveset based on Super Princess Peach, Daisy mostly serves as a means of retaining Peach's old moveset. This, as such, no longer makes her an Echo Fighter like Ultimate. Her moveset mostly utilizes punches, slaps, and kicks, though she also has an assortment of projectiles at her disposal.

Piranha Plant
Super Mario Bros. (1985)
PiranhaPlant SSBUltimate
Piranha Plants (パックンフラワー, Packun Flower) are common enemies that appear throughout the Mario series. In their most basic form, Piranha Plants hide in Warp Pipes, and rise out of them to try and bite Mario. They also come in various other varieties, such as Fire Piranha Plants that spit fireballs, Stalking Piranha Plants that walk around and extend their stalks to bite Mario more easily, and Putrid Piranhas that spit poisonous gas.

Piranha Plant is one of the slowest fighters in the game, sporting very slow ground mobility and below-average aerial mobility. Its attacks are a mixed bag, having utility in various areas. For example, its smash and crash attacks are good KO moves, its tilts are good for starting combos, and its back aerial and Ptooie being good moves for edgeguarding. Despite its lackluster mobility, Piranha Plant has a great and flexible recovery, giving it great survivability that is complemented by its above-average weight.

Piranha Plant resides in a pot for the entire battle, and sprouts feet like a Stalking Piranha Plant to move around. Aside from bites and attacks utilizing the pot, Piranha Plant's moveset draws from its various subspecies, including some obscure ones.

8-Bit Mario
Super Mario Odyssey (2017)
8BitMarioCharged
8-Bit Mario (8ビットマリオ, 8 Bit Mario) is a form of Mario based on his sprite in Super Mario Bros. He can achieve this form in Super Mario Odyssey by purchasing the 8-Bit Cap, giving him a static, blocky shape. While in this form, Mario's limbs do not animate, but he still has the same abilities. The sprite of Mario the costume is based on is also quite iconic, albeit it is recolored to match his modern color scheme.

8-Bit Mario is a middle-lightweight character, and can be knocked away relatively easily compared to the rest of the cast. In terms of mobility, he is rather fast, and has a unique momentum mechanic similar to Mario's running in Super Mario Bors., as he moves forward he will continue to pick up speed, which also translates to his air speed. If he keeps constantly moving, 8-Bit Mario can keep increasing his momentum, allowing him to become one of the fastest characters in the game. This also complements his quick frame data, and significantly helps his combo game.

Much like Super Mario Odyssey, 8-Bit Mario's limbs do not animate, so instead most of his attacks consist of body slams, spins, and flips to damage the opponent. Other parts of his moveset, namely his special moves, take reference from Super Mario Maker.

This will cause a stage-wide tremor that causes all grounded opponents to be damaged. The POW Block can then be hit or attacked up up three times before it disappears. Opponents can use the POW Block for themselves however. Only one POW Block can be at play at a time.
    • Custom 1 - Slip POW Block: Instead of damaging opponents, the POW Block causes all grounded opponents to trip.
    • Custom 2 - POW Block Wave: Hitting the POW Block creates a shockwave around itself, damaging all opponents in the radius instead of only hitting grounded opponents.

After awhile, the Koopa Clown Car explodes, returning 8-Bit Mario to his previous state.
  • Charged State - Big Mushroom: The hand from Super Mario Maker gives 8-Bit Mario a Big Mushroom, transforming him into Big Mario. In this state, his attacks cover more range and deal more damage.

Donkey Kong
Donkey Kong (1981)
DonkeyKong SSBUltimate
Donkey Kong (ドンキーコング, Donkey Kong) is a massive ape and the main protagonist of the Donkey Kong series. He made his first appearance in the arcade game Donkey Kong, where he kidnapped Pauline and Mario would have to rescue her. Since then, he went on to star in the Donkey Kong Country platformer series. These games portray him as a carefree ape who likes spending time with friends or eating bananas. However, when Donkey Kong Island, his friends, or his Banana Hoard is in danger, he doesn't hesitate to jump headfirst into action.

Donkey Kong is a heavyweight fighter with notable strengths and clear weaknesses. His weight, speed, jump height, attack power, and overall range are all above-average, making him capable of taking on any opponent. He also has an extremely potent grab game; uniquely, he can carry around opponents above his shoulder and throw them, an ability called Kong Karry. Donkey Kong also has a good edgeguarding game, with several moves that deal heavy damage, can meteor smash opponents, or both.

Donkey Kong's moveset mainly consists of punches, swipes, and slaps, with him using his strength to his advantage. Many of these attacks have high attack power and can reliably KO opponents. He does, however, have a linear recovery that can easily be gimped if not used carefully.

Lanky Kong (ε)
Donkey Kong 64 (1999)
Lanky
Lanky Kong (ランキーコング, Lanky Kong) is a member of the Kong Family and one of the playable characters in Donkey Kong 64. He is an orangutan with lanky arms and a wild personality. He has the ability to stand on his hands to allow him to climb up slopes, as well as inflate himself like a balloon to reach new areas.

As an Echo Fighter of Donkey Kong, Lanky Kong shares many of the same moves as him. He is much lighter and shorter than Donkey Kong, and can be knocked away much easier. The power of his attacks is also pretty lackluster, and he lacks Donkey Kong's Kong Karry. However, in exchange for these disadvantages, he has the unique ability to stretch his arms to allow his attacks to reach ludicrous lengths, allowing him to cover more range than most other characters. In fact, Lanky has some of the longest-ranged non-disjointed moves in the entire roster.

Diddy Kong
Donkey Kong Country (1994)
DiddyKong SSBUltimate
Diddy Kong (ディディーコング, Diddy Kong) is Donkey Kong's best friedn and sidekick, being a major character in the Donkey Kong Country series. Like DK, he is quite energetic and likes bananas and hanging out with his friends, and is always willing to go on an adventure. While Donkey Kong mainly uses his brute strength, Diddy Kong relies on weapons such as the Peanut Popguns and the Rocketbarrel Pack.

As a lightweight, Diddy Kong can be launched and KO'ed quite easily, especially against heavier characters. However, he is extremely agile, sporting quick mobility overall and fast frame data. This gives him a very impressive combo game, allowing him to quickly overwhelm opponents and rack up damage. He also has a flexible recovery, with high jump height, low falling speed, and his side and up specials both being able to aid him getting back to the stage.

Diddy Kong's moveset is overall weak in terms of damage, mostly being slaps, kicks, and tail swings, but the quick frame data they have make them ideal for combos. He can also utilize different weaponry to attack opponents.

King K. Rool
Donkey Kong Country (1994)
KingKrool SSBUltimate
King K. Rool (キングクルール, King K. Rool) is the main antagonist of the Donkey Kong series. The leader of a race of crocodilians called Kremlings, he is often seen trying to take Donkey Kong's Banana Hoard, and has even kidnapped members of the Kong Family. However, Donkey Kong and his friends always defeat him. Notably, he has gone under many different aliases throughout his schemes, such as Kaptain K. Rool and Baron K. Roolenstein.

Fittingly, King K. Rool is one of the heaviest characters in the game, and as such is difficult to knock away. Aiding his survivability, many of his attacks that involve his stomach grant him special armor. This is better than super armor, as King K. Rool will only take half the damage in addition to no knockback. However, if the stomach is damaged during these attacks, it will crack. After five cracks, it will shatter, leaving K. Rool stunned for a short time. He is also quite mobile, possessing fast ground and air speed. However, he has a lackluster recovery thanks to his low jump height and above-average falling speed.

Though the range on King K. Rool's attacks is short compared to other heavyweights, they still deal a lot of damage. He does, though, have access to projectiles that cover a lot of ground and are quite versatile. Many of his attacks are taken from his various appearances as a boss throughout the Donkey Kong series.

  • Neutral Special - Blunderbuss: King K. Rool puts on a pirate hat and takes out the Blunderbuss. If the special button is tapped, he will fire a cannonball that travels forward and damages opponents. If the special button is held, he will instead suck opponents into the Blunderbuss, and can then launch them at different angles depending on directional inputs. This can also be done by holding the special button after a cannonball is launched. The cannonball can be reflected back at King K. Rool with any attack that deals 4% damage or more.

If it falls off the edge or flies past a blast zone, the crown spawns back onto the stage. In either case, opponents can pick it up and use it as an item. If King K. Rool picks it up, he simply puts it back on his head.
    • Custom 1 - Tornado Crown: The crown creates a tornado as it spins. It doesn't damage opponents, but it will catch them and bring them back to King K. Rool, allowing him to follow up with an attack.

The cannonball can then be picked up and thrown as an item by King K. Rool or his opponents; after being thrown, it travels in an arc, damaging opponents it hits. After two throws, the cannonball disappears. Only one cannonball can be at play.
    • Custom 1 - Exploding Cannonball: The cannonball explodes on impact, dealing heavy damage and knockback to opponents in the blast radius.
    • Custom 2 - Targeting Cannonball: The cannonball falls from directly above a random opponent as opposed to in front of King K. Rool. It disappears once it hits the ground.
    • Custom 3 - Cannonball Rain: Three cannonballs fall in front of King K. Rool. These cover more range but do not bury or meteor smash opponents, nor do they deal more damage. They disappear once they hit the ground.

Yoshi & Baby Mario
Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island (1995)
Yoshi&BabyMario
Yoshi & Baby Mario (ヨッシー&ベビィマリオ, Yoshi & Baby Mario) are a duo of characters that appear in the Yoshi series. Yoshi is a member of a race of green dinosaurs that live on Yoshi's Island, while Baby Mario, as his name suggests, is Mario as an infant. In Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island, Kamek tried to kidnap the Mario Bros. as babies, but only managed to nab Luigi; Mario fell onto Yoshi's Island, and as found by a group of Yoshis. These Yoshis decided to team up with Baby Mario to reunite him with his brother.

The player will primarily control Yoshi, while Baby Mario rides on his back and helps with a few attacks. Together, they are a surprisingly heavyweight fighter with moderate ground speed and even faster air speed. They have a unique double jump where Yoshi uses his Flutter Jump; this is higher than most double jumps and provides super armor. They also have a unique shield; by holding either direction on the control stick while shielding, they will parry instead of roll, allowing them to move along the stage while holding their shield.

With the addition of Baby Mario, Yoshi's moveset has seen some heavy changes from previous installments. Many of his tail-based attacks have been replaced with ones involving Baby Mario, who can use a hammer from Mario & Luigi: Partners in Time. Other moves, most notably specials, have also been replaced or heavily changed.

Wario
Super Mario Land 2: 6 Golden Coins (1992)
Wario SSBUltimate 2
Wario (ワリオ, Wario) is Mario's obese, yellow-in-clad rival and a major character in the Mario series. While Mario is usually portrayed as cheerful and kind-hearted, Wario is greedy and sometimes antagonistic, though he can goof up at times. After his debut, he went on to star in his own Wario series, which are split into two subseries; Wario Land sees Wario going on adventures to find treasure with cartoon hijinxs and bizarre humor, while WarioWare sees Wario running a microgame company to cash in on the video game trend and profit off of it.

Wario is an extremely unorthodox fighter in terms of stats; despite having moderate ground speed, he has really fast air speed. Though he is rather heavy, his moveset is a mixed bag in terms of strength, with moves that allow him to combo opponents and others he can use to KO them. In particular, his smash attacks and special moves are very unique, and mastery of them is key to winning. Wario's general game plan is to bait out reactions from opponents and punish accordingly, dipping in and out of the fray as he does so.

Following Ultimate, Wario's moveset has seen a few changes, specifically his non-special moves, to draw more from his Wario Land games, from abilities and techniques to utilizing transformations he has from those games. This effectively makes him equally represent both sides of the Wario series.

He serves a higher authority, and comes to the Mushroom Kingdom as a puppet in order to fix the Star Road after it is destroyed by the Smithy Gang.

Count Bleck
Super Paper Mario (2007)
CountBleck2
Count Bleck (ノワール伯爵, Count Noir) is initially the main antagonist of Super Paper Mario. At the beginning of the game, he and his minions force Peach and Bowser into a marriage, bringing forth the Chaos Heart. With it, he proceeds to fulfill the Dark Prognosticus, a book of prophecies that foretell the end of all worlds. He opens the Void, and Mario and his allies, the prophesied Heroes of Light, must stop him. Initially, he is portrayed as cruel and merciless, but is later revealed that his actions are fueled by loss and regret after the loss of his true love, Timpani. By the end of the game, he is reunited with Timpani, and together they use their love to stop the Dark Prognosticus and save all worlds.

Despite his large frame, Count Bleck is actually middleweight. He also possesses quick mobility on both the ground and in midair. As a magic user, many of Count Bleck's attacks are long ranged and deal heavy damage, allowing him to effectively fight from afar. The actual damage output of these attacks are weak, and he has trouble KOing opponents because of it. Furthermore, while his recovery is flexible, it is predictable and easy to gimp.

Many of Count Bleck's attacks are taken from his boss fight in Super Paper Mario, and as such they have several unique properties to them. Some of these attacks are focused on inflicting status ailments on opponents rather than damaging them, which can leave them vulnerable to a strong attack.

Linkultimate
Link (リンク, Link) is the name given to each of the main protagonists of the The Legend of Zelda series. Each hero is a reincarnation of the last, and they usually wield the Triforce of Courage. Most of the Links are known for wearing green outfits, as well as carrying a variety of weapons, most notably the Master Sword. This particular Link is based on his incarnation in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.

Link is a middleweight with average speed and jump height. His main weapon is the Master Sword, which offers a lot of disjointed range and allows him to attack opponents from afar. Uniquely, if he is at 0%, many of his normal attacks can create beams that act as powerful projectiles, though this ability will be lost once he takes damage. He can also glide using the Paraglider from Breath of the Wild to help his recovery.

Link is also equipped with the Hilyian Shield; when he is standing idle or crouching, any projectiles that hit the shield will be negated. Most of his moveset revolves around his various weapons, some of which can be used in conjunction with each other. He also has a unique Shield Counter that utilizes Daruk's Protection.

Zelda
The Legend of Zelda (1986)
Zeldaultimate
Zelda (ゼルダ, Zelda) is the name given to all the princesses of Hyrule, as is tradition. The first Zelda, appearing in The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword, was the physical embodiment of the goddess Hylia, who unified the races of Hyrule to defeat her nemesis Demise. Ever since then, all Zeldas have wielded the Triforce of Wisdom, and have had some form of magic prowess. This particular Zelda is based off of her incarnation in The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds.

Status-wise, Zelda is a slow middleweight. She has rather poor mobility on both the ground and in midair. Though her attacks are strong and can deal heavy knockback, she has a lot of trouble comboing opponents, and it can be difficult for her to escape combos herself. To compensate however, many of her attacks have distant hitboxes in the form of a magic ball that appears quite aways away from her when she attacks, giving her some of the most disjointed non-projectile moves in the game. The effect of these distant hitboxes varies between attacks, but they are generally stronger than her physical hitboxes. If the attack button is held when a distant hitbox connects with an opponent, Zelda instantly teleports to that location, allowing her to follow up a bit more reliably.

Most of Zelda's attacks consist of magic, provided to her by the Triforce of Wisdom. This makes the attacks a bit more ranged than other fighters, even without the distant hitboxes. However, their heavy knockback and Zelda's lackluster mobility make it difficult for her to combo. As such, mastery of her distant hitboxes is key to winning the battle.

Ganondorf
The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time (1998)
Ganondorf SSBUltimate
Ganondorf (ガノンドロフ, Ganondorf) is the main antagonist of the The Legend of Zelda series. The name "Ganondorf" is used to refer to the human form of Ganon, wielder of the Triforce of Power. He is the only male member in his tribe of Gerudo, who bear a male child every 100 years. Unlike Link or Zelda, who have multiple incarnations throughout the series, Ganondorf is a single being, be it as a Gerudo or in his more demonic Ganon form. His design in this game is based off of that in The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time.

Fitting for the wielder of the Triforce of Power, Ganondorf boasts incredible strength in his attacks, having some of the strongest moves of the entire roster. Additionally, he is one of the heaviest characters in the game, and can be hard to knock away. Despite these gifts, Ganondorf also possesses average mobility, with good ground and air speed, allowing him to rush down opponents with strong attacks. However, he has a pretty weak recovery, especially horizontally, and his moveset is also rather laggy, making it easy for him to be punished.

As in previous games, Ganondorf is a Captain Falcon semi-clone, and shares a lot of his attacks. However, following Ultimate, many more of his moves utilize his sword, allowing him to cover more range and further differentiate himself from Captain Falcon. Uniquely, all of these sword moves can also reflect projectiles.

  • Side Special - Gerudo Dragon: Ganondorf dashes forward. If the move is used in midair, he enters a semi-helpless state afterwards. If he hits an opponent while dashing, he will either uppercut them upward and meteor smash them with a haymaker depending on if the move is used on the ground or in midair. If the special button is held, Ganondorf will instead hold the opponent by the throat upward and send them into the ground.

    • Custom 1 - Dark Fists: Instead of grabbing opponents, Ganondorf damages them multiple times before launching them as he rises.
    • Custom 2 - Dark Vault: Ganondorf leaps twice, but will only grab opponents at the start of each leap. He knocks opponents away instead of meteor smashing them.
    • Custom 3 - Dark Leap: Ganondorf leaps much higher, gaining more vertical and horizontal distance, but will not grab opponents. He swings his fists at the end of the move, which can damage opponents nearby.
  • Down Special - Wizard's Kick: Ganondorf bursts forward with a darkness-enhanced kick. If the move is used in midair, he performs a stall-then-fall kick that tarvels in a diagonally-downward angle.

Samus
Metroid (1986)
3DS MetroidSamusReturns char 015
Samus (サムス, Samus), full name Samus Aran, is the central protagonist of the Metroid science-fiction series. She was orphaned as a young girl, being the sole survivor of a Space Pirate attack on her colony led by Ridley. She was found and raised by the Chozo alien race, and was trained in the fighting arts. They also gave her the Power Suit, and has since become a bounty hunter, often taking on missions from the Galactic Federation.

Samus is an extremely floaty heavyweight, whose slow falling speed and moderate air speed make for a good recovery. She is the prime example of a zoner; Samus relies on her ranged attacks and projectiles to distance herself from opponents and rack up damage, though she can wade in if need be. Her physical attacks aren't as strong as her projectiles, but they can get the job done.

Samus' moveset is based on the variety of weapons found in the Metroid series, such as Missiles and Bombs. Uniquely, if the taunt button is held, she will alter her arm cannon to activate an "ice mode", changing some of her fire-based attacks to ice-based. Attacks in this state deal less damage, but have a chance at freezing opponents, leading to better combo potential. She can switch back to her normal state by holding the taunt button again.

    • Custom 3 - Flash Bomb: Bombs take longer to explode and don't damage opponents, but explode in a flash of light, which can stun opponents to leave them vulnerable.
  • Final Smash - Zero Laser: Samus fires a massive laser from her arm cannon forward that can be angled up and down. The laser will damage opponents multiple times before launching them.
  • Charged State - Hypermode: Samus begins glowing blue, entering Hypermode. In this state, all of her attacks become Phazon-enhanced, and she can also jump much higher. Notably, some of her attacks can cover the ground in Phazon, which can both heal Samus and damage opponents when they step in it.

Dark Samus (ε)
Metroid Prime 2: Echoes (2004)
DarkSamus SSBUltimate
Dark Samus (ダークサムス, Dark Samus) is a major antagonist in the Metroid series, specifically the Metroid Prime series. She was created when the Metroid Prime absorbed Samus' Phazon Suit during the final battle in Metroid Prime. Dark Samus has all of her normal counterpart's abilities, as well as Phazon-based abilities. In Metroid Prime 3: Corruption, she served as the main antagonist, where she spread Phazon across the galaxy.

Being an Echo Fighter of Samus, Dark Samus shares many of the same moves and abilities. In general, she serves as a milder version of Samus' Hypermode Charged State, allowing her to utilize Phazon throughout the battle. While this means she cannot change from fire to ice like Samus, Phazon is unique in that it can cover the ground if it strikes opponents. When this happens, Dark Samus can walk on this Phazon to heal herself, while opponents take gradual damage from stepping in it.

Ridley
Metroid (1986)
Ridley SSBUltimate
Ridley (リドリー, Ridley) is a massive space pterodactyl and a major antagonist in the Metroid series. He was the one responsible for the death of Samus' parents on K2-L, which would lead to a rivalry between the two. He is one of the leading commanders of the Space Pirates, and despite being seemingly killed after every encounter with Samus, he is always reincarnated somehow. Despite his big and imposing appearance, he is actually quite intelligent. His design, as in Ultimate is mainly based on his appearance in Super Metroid.

Ridley is noticeably larger than other fighters in the roster, even compared to his fellow heavyweights. Thanks to his wings, he is capable of five midair jumps and is able to glide. Combined with his heavy weight, he can be quite difficult to launch. However, while his size grants him great range, it also makes him a big target, being susceptible to attacks and especially combos. However, he can escape combos thanks to his quick attack speed if need be.

Ridley's moveset consists of claw slashes, wing attacks, tail slashes, and bursts of fire from his mouth. A number of his attacks take reference from several of his boss battles in the Metroid series. His attacks have a lot of range thanks to his large frame, and because his tail and wings have no hurtboxes on them, moves involving them are actually disjointed.

    • Custom 3 - Plasma Balls: Ridley cannot fie fireballs as quick. They travel a bit slower but bounce in higher arcs.
  • Side Special - Space Pirate Rush: Ridley rushes forward to grab the opponent. If successful, he slams them into the ground and flies forward while dragging them across it, dealing continuous damage before throwing them at an edge or if the special button is pressed again. However, opponents can button mash to escape Ridley's grasp. If he grabs an opponent in midair, he will fall downward to the ground or lower blast zone with them in tow, though pressing the special button again has him leap off the opponent and meteor smashing them.
    • Custom 1 - Space Pirate Drag: Ridley drags opponents slower and it is easier for them to button mash out of the move, but he deals more damage.

    • Custom 2 - Shish-Kebab Blast: Ridley has noticeable startup lag, but after stabbing his tail, he creates an explosion that deals heavy damage and knockback.
    • Custom 3 - Skewer: Ridley stabs his tail forward. It normally deals little damage and knockback, but if an opponent is hit by the tip of the tail, they take massive damage and are left vulnerable for a follow-up. If the sweetspot does not land, he has endlag.
  • Final Smash - Plasma Scream: Ridley rushes forward. If he hits an opponent, they are locked in a cinematic where they are knocked onto Samus' gunship as it flies away. Ridley then appears and shoots a plasma beam at it, causing it to explode and sending the opponent back to the stage, launching them. After the move, Samus' gunship can be seen flying through the background, damaged.
  • Charged State - Omega Ridley: Ridley becomes swarmed with Phazon, transforming into Omega Ridley. In this state, he is much faster and a number of his attacks deal phazon-based damage. He can also jump higher.

Mother Brain
Metroid (1986)
MotherBrainPoker'sCut
Mother Brain (マザーブレイン, Mother Brain) is a major antagonist in the Metroid series. She was an AI created by the Chozo, but turned against them when the Space Pirates invaded Zebes, becoming their leader. On her mission to exterminate the Space Pirates, Samus needed to storm into Tourian and defeat Mother Brain.

While Mother Brain wasn't often seen outside her capsule, she has been given mechanical legs in Charged, allowing her to move around freely. She is among the heaviest and largest characters in the game, with long-ranged attacks to match. Her moveset is overall laggy, but her stronger moves can deal impressive damage. Her biggest strength, however, is stage control, allowing her to rack up damage and overwhelm opponents from afarr before KOing them with a powerful blow.

Mother Brain's basic moveset consists of pokes and slashes from her mechanical legs, as well as body slams that cover a lot of range. Some of her moves also make reference to the various hazards Samus needs to dodge during boss battles against Mother Brain.

Kirby
Kirby's Dream Land (1992)
Kirby SSBU
Kirby (カービィ, Kirby) is a small, pink creature and the titular protagonist of the Kirby series. Though he is friendly and innocent, he will not hesitate to protect his homeland from any villains that threaten its peacefulness. He has the ability to inflate himself with air and float freely through the sky, as well as inhale enemies to take their abilities and use them to his advantage.

Kirby is a fairly simple character to control. He is lightweight, meaning he is easy to knock away, but his five midair jumps and moderate air speed make for a good recovery. With his neutral special, Inhale, Kirby has the ability to take an opponent's neutral special and use it against them. After this, if Kirby is attacked enough, he will lose the ability. However, taunting will allow him to discard the move himself.

Kirby's moveset takes inspiration from his various Copy Abilities in the Kirby series, particularly Fighter and Suplex. He also takes inspiration from Crash Co.'s Kirby and the Pirate's Curse. Overall, they are simple and easy to learn, but effective at fending off opponents. Though they are fast and powerful, Kirby isn't really good at combos.

Classic Kirby (ε)
Kirby: Star Allies (2018)
Classic kirby render pink alt by nibroc rock-daxfoo9
Classic Kirby (クラシックカービィ, Classic Kirby) is the name given to an alternate costume Kirby can attain in Kirby: Star Allies, based on his original design prior to Kirby Super Star. It became available in the game's third update in November 2018, and players have the option to use it when playing as Kirby. In addition to changing his model, this costume will also change the menu UI to match his design.

Classic Kirby is an Echo Fighter of Kirby, having a lot of his moves and attributes. In general, Classic Kirby's moveset is identical to Kirby's. However, his version of Inhale is different in that instead of copying an opponent's neutral special, it will give him a new ability based on the Copy Abilities in the Kirby series depending on the character (i.e. copying Mario will give him the Fire ability, granting him a new neutral special based on that ability).

Meta Knight
Kirby's Adventure (1993)
MetaKnight SSBUltimate
Meta Knight (メタナイト, Meta Knight) is a major character in the Kirby series. He is a mysterious, masked swordsman who pilots his own battleship, the Halberd. His intentions and never exactly clear, so he is usually deemed an ant-hero. He has both helped and battled Kirby. He always provides a sword for an opponent in order to make the battle fair.

Meta Knight possesses great mobility and frame data, allowing him to quickly overwhelm opponents. He also has five midair jumps and the ability to glide, making recovery quite easy despite him being a lightweight. He possesses the Galaxia sword; while it is smaller compared to other swords, it still grants him disjointed hitboxes. Though he can combo opponents quite easily, he has trouble KOing them.

Meta Knight's moveset is derived from his multiple boss battles in the Kirby series. Most of his moves are sword slashes, though he also utilizes kicks. He has a lot of options for a multitude of situations, making him more of a jack-of-all-trades character.

King Dedede is among the heaviest characters in the game, and is really hard to knock away. Complementing this are his five midair jumps and decent air speed, making for a great recovery overall. He is armed with a wooden hammer, which can not only attack opponents with disjointed range, but also comes equipped with various hidden gadgets he uses to his advantage. However, he moves rather slow and has rouble escaping from combos.

In particular, he has a strong punish game, allowing him to bait out opponents and react accordingly to deal heavy damage. His edgeguarding game is also superb, thanks to his Gordo Throw being able to cover a multitude of options.

Dark Meta Knight
Kirby and the Amazing Mirror (2004)
Dark Meta Knight KSA
Dark Meta Knight (ダークメタナイト , Dark Meta Knight) is the Mirror World version of Meta Knight, appearing as a recurring boss in the Kirby series, as well as a playable character in Kirby: Star Allies. Despite looking identical to Meta Knight, he has a far more vicious and darker personality, lacking the knight's honor his lighter counterpart has. He has a much more aggressive fighting style, and has abilities not even normal Meta Knight can achieve.

As a fighter, Dark Meta Knight is a fast, close-quarters fighter like Meta Knight. His version of the Galaxia offers some disjointed hitboxes, but among the most minimal in the roster. Compared with Meta Knight however, he also has access to long-ranged attacks that are also powerful, and can be used to quickly rack up damage. He also has an excellent recovery, with five midair jumps thanks to his wings.

Dark Meta Knight's moveset is mostly derived from his attacks as a Dream Friend in Kirby: Star Allies, as well as the Mirror ability in various Kirby games. This, in general, gives him a much longer-ranged moveset than Meta Knight, though he has nowhere near as favorable frame data.

Marx
Kirby Super Star (1995)
Marx SSBU
Marx (マルク, Mark) is a recurring character in the Kirby series. He is the main antagonist of the Milky Way Wishes subgame in Kirby Super Star, where he made the sun and moon fight and tricked Kirby to awaken Galactic Nova to stop them. After this, Marx uses its power to take over the universe, but he is stopped by Kirby. After this, he appeared as a Dream Friend in Kirby: Star Allies, having seemingly changed his villainous ways. His design in Super Smash Bros. is based off of his true form, seen in his boss battle.

Marx is a quick fighter, sporting high ground and air speed. His wings allow him six midair jumps and the ability to glide, making for a good recovery. However, he is one of the lighter characters in the game, and his large frame makes him an easy target. His attacks can cover a lot of range, making them especially good for fending off multiple opponents.

Marx's moves are taken from his boss battle in Kirby Super Star, as well as his moveset as a Dream Friend in Kirby: Star Allies. For the most part, they cover a lot of range and are quite strong, but are laggy as a result. With these attributes, Marx can be seen as a boss battle in a sense.

Fox
Star Fox (1993)
StarFoxBattleForAtlasTransparent
Fox (フォックス, Fox), full name Fox McCloud, is the main protagonist of the Star Fox series. He is the successor to his late father, James McCloud. He leads the mercenary group Star Fox, who travel around the Lylat System and protect it from Andross' forces, as well as any other threats. He's a calm and collective leader, able to carry out missions reliably. The ships Star Fox pilots, the Arwings, are armed with plasma cannons that can cut through any forces.

Fox is an extremely mobile character, possessing quick running speed and just as fast air speed, as well as fast falling speed. He boasts a versatile combo game thanks to these gifts, as well as quick and near-unmatched frame data that can beat opponents to the punch. He can also camp from opponents with his Blaster, and neglect camping himself with Reflector. Inversely, his high falling speed makes him rather easy to combo, and also gives him an overall poor recovery, despite being flexible.

The majority of Fox's moveset is centered around kicks, though he can also utilize weapons to give himself extra range. His moveset overall favors offensive play, so a Fox's player's main game plan is to overpower opponents as quick as possible, bait reactions, and punish accordingly.

Falco
Star Fox (1993)
Falco SSBUltimate
Falco (ファルコ, Falco), full name Falco Lombardi, is one of the main characters in the Star Fox series. He is an ace pilot who joined the titular Star Fox mercenary team. He was originally the leader of his own gang of pilots before he left them. He has a sharp tongue and can sometimes be independent, but his friendship with Fox is unbreakable.

Falco has a great combo game, with attacks that deal low knockback that can chain into each other easily, as well as strong moves that can act as finishers. In addition to his quick ground mobility and fast falling speed, Falco also possesses one of the highest jump heights of the roster, making his recovery easier and making his approaches better. He can apply pressure easily from afar with his projectiles as well.

Falco's moveset has gone through some changes in order to differentiate him more from Fox, as well as make him better as a fighter. Like Fox, many of his moves are kicks, but he also uses wing slashes. He uses his gear somewhat differently from Fox as well.

Wolf
Star Fox 64 (1997)
Wolf SSBUltimate
Wolf (ウルフ, Wolf), full name Wolf O'Donnell, is a recurring character in the Star Fox series, acting as a rival to Fox. He leads his own mercenary crew called Star Wolf, who pilot specialized ships called Wolfens. Though similar to Awrings, they actually have better flight and combat capabilities. Wolf and his gang are notorious criminals in the Lylat System, and often take up jobs for money. This has led him to have a huge bounty on his head.

Like Fox and Falco, Wolf possesses supreme mobility overall, with fast ground and air speed, high falling speed, and above-average jump height. He has a good approaching game, with fast attacks that can combo into each other and special moves with high utility. However, he has a pretty poor recovery, and he can find it difficult to make it back to the stage after being launched.

Wolf's moveset, like Falco's, has gone through some changes to further differentiate himself from Fox. His main moveset consists of claw swipes and kicks, and is generally more feral. He uses his gear differently from Fox as well.

Pigma (ピグマ, Pigma), full name Pigma Dengar, is a recurring character in the Star Fox series. He was a member of the original Star Fox team, consisting of James McCloud and Peppy Hare. However, he betrayed the team for Andross, and later joined Star Wolf. He is sadistic, greedy, and cowardly, and it was these traits and his untrustworthiness that ended up getting him booted from the team.

Pigma has similar stats to his fellow Star Fox characters, such as quick falling speed and fast attacks. However, he differs from them greatly as he has elements of a heavyweight fighter, including high weight, overall slow mobility, and strong finishers. Despite these good traits, he has a mediocre recovery, and hardly has any tools for edgeguarding.

MiyuBI
Miyu (ミュウ, Miyu), full name Miyu Lynx, is a character that appears in Star Fox 2, which was originally cancelled before released alongside the SNES Classic as a bonus game. She is one of the newest members of the Star Fox team, and pilots a faster Arwing model that lacks in defense, called an Interceptor. She assists the rest of the pilots in fighting Andross.

Miyu, as a character, is mainly used to retain Wolf's playstyle from Ultimate.

She is also much quicker than other characters, but lacks a good recovery. She is also a lightweight, and can be kncoked around easily.

While Miyu is similar to Wolf's appearance in Ultimate, she uses punches and kicks rather than claw swipes. Many of her moves have the same properties as Wolf's however.

Fay
Star Fox 2 (2017)
Fay Star Fox 2
Fay (フェイ, Fay), full name Fay Spaniel, is a character that appears in Star Fox 2, which was originally cancelled before released alongside the SNES Classic as a bonus game. She is one of the newest members of the Star Fox team, and like Miyu, pilots a faster Arwing model that lacks in defense, called an Interceptor. She helps the rest of the pilots in defeating Andross.

Like how Miyu is made to retain Wolf's platsyle from Ultimate, Fay serves as a way to retain Falco's Ultimate' moveset. In addition to overall fast mobility and quick attacks, she has a great amount of jump height, allowing her to continue combos far above the stage, as well as pressure midair opponents. She also has a good camping game thanks to her projectiles, and can reliably fight opponnets from a distance to rack up damage or fore approaches.

Like Falco, Fay uses a lot of kicks in her basic moveset. However, most wing slashes are replaced with standard punches. Her gear is used almost exactly like how Falco's is in
Ultimate.

Pikachu
Pokémon Red and Pokémon Green (1996)
Pikachu SSBUltimate
Pikachu (ピカチュウ, Pikachu) is an Electric-type Mouse Pokémon introduced in Generation I. It evolves from Pichu and evolves into Raichu. It is one of the most popular Pokémon in the world thanks to its cuteness and fighting prowess. It has the ability to store electricity in its cheeks, and pepper its opponent with electric strikes.

Pikachu is a typical lightweight fighter, sporting good mobility, weak attacks that can allow it to combo opponents, and a decent recovery. However, its low weight allows it to be KO'ed easily, especially by stronger opponents. One of its best attributes is its frame data, allowing to to quickly damage opponents and keep combo strings longer than most other opponents. While it can have trouble KOing opponents, it has great approach options, allowing it to overwhelm opponents quickly.

Pikachu's attacks are typically low-range thanks to its small frame, though some of its tail attacks can cover more distance. Its moveset often uses electricity, which can stun opponents and leave them vulnerable to more attacks.

Jigglypuff
Pokémon Red and Pokémon Green (1996)
Jigglypuff SSBUltimate
Jigglypuff (プリン, Purin) is a Normal / Fairy dual-type Balloon Pokémon introduced in Generation I. It evolves from Igglybuff and evolves into Wigglytuff. It is known for its ability to sing, performed by inflating its body to empower its lungs. The lullabies it sings are known for putting its opponent to sleep. However, since some Pokémon are naturally resilient to its singing, its life may be in danger since it cab't breathe while singing.

Jigglypuff has the fastest air speed in the game, which allows it to float swiftly through the air an utilize its powerful aerial moves. While it is also the lightest character in the game, this air speed and five midair jumps give it an extremely reliable recovery. Its ground attacks are also strong, being able to deal heavy damage and kncokback. However, they lack range and are hard to land due to Jigglypuff's sluggish ground speed. Uniquely however, if its shield is broken, it undergoes a shield jump so high it reaches the upper blast zone, KOing itself.

Most of Jigglypuff's moveset relies on its round body. Though this gives it less than favorable range, its attacks are rather strong and can KO reliably. Its special moves are extremely unorthodox, but are very useful in certain situations.

Pichu
Pokémon Gold and Pokémon Silver (1999)
Pichu SSBUltimate
Pichu (ピチュー, Pichu) is an Electric-type Tiny Mouse Pokémon introduced in Generation II. It evolves into Pikachu, which evolves into Raichu. It is a social Pokémon known for its playfulness and mischievous behavior. It has the ability to store electricity, and may discharge it when amused, startled, or shocked. However, because this skill is underdeveloped, it will damage itself when it happens. Pichu are commonly found in groups, and will touch tails with each other to create a shower of sparks as a show of courage.

Pichu is one of the lightest characters in the game. Though it can be easy to launch, it has good mobility overall, with quick ground and air speed. Its attacks are also surprisingly powerful, being able to KO opponents easily. Uniquely, any electric-based attacks that hit opponents will cause it to suffer recoil damage. When it accumulates 30% damage from these attacks however, Pichu will begin discharging electricity around its body. When this happens, Pichu's electric attacks are able to deal more damage. Furthermore, every time it takes 10% damage after this effect takes place, it continues to grow stronger. This caps when it takes 60% recoil damage total. It should be noted that only recoil damage from attacks that successfully hit opponents will count towards this mechanic.

Pichu has low range overall, so it can be difficult for it to hit opponents with attacks that aren't electric-based. It is also noticeably different in terms of moveset to Pikachu, who it as considered a clone of in previous games. Overall, though it is light and can be KO'ed easily, Pichu can deal heavy damage to opponents, as well as effectively combo them.

Pokémon Trainer
Pokémon Red and Pokémon Green (1996)
PokemonTrainer SSBUltimate (Female)
A Pokémon Trainer (ポケモントレーナー, Pokémon Trainer) is a human from the Pokémon series. The vast majority of the humans in the series are Pokémon Trainers, including the characters that the player controls. Leaf and Red, Pokémon Trainers from Pokémon FireRed and Pokémon LeafGreen, serve as the designs for Pokémon Trainer.

Pokémon Trainer doesn't fight opponents, but rather stands in the background and summons Pokémon to battle. Specifically, they use Squirtle (ゼニガメ, Zenigame), Ivysaur (フシギソウ, Fushigisou), and Charizard (リザードン, Lizardon), all of whom are Pokémon introduced in Generation I, and are notable for being the Kanto starter Pokémon. As in Ultimate, they can quickly switch between each other so the player can utilize different movesets, with there being no punishment for sticking with only one. However, where in Brawl and Ultimate they would change into each other via down special, in Charged they instead change if the shield is held and up or down special are inputted. This not only allows the three Pokémon to have full movesets, but also allows the player to pick which Pokémon they want to switch to (i.e. if the player is using Squirtle, using the up special while in shield will have the Pokémon Trainer switch to Ivysaur, while using the down special will have them switch to Charizard). The player can select which Pokémon they start with on the character selection screen.

The three Pokémon, as mentioned, have different movesets and playstyles. Squirtle is the smallest and lightest of the three; while it has weaker attacks, it is the most mobile. Ivysaur is the slowest, but has the most range and has the ability to deal heavy damage to opponents. Charizard is the largest and heaviest; its wings allow it to use five midair jumps and its attacks have incredible KO power.

    • Custom 1 - Water Pledge: The attack deals more damage, but has more startup and endlag, and cannot meteor smash opponents.
    • Custom 2 - Hydro Cannon: The water damages opponents multiple times before launching them. The attack covers more range as well, but also cannot meteor smash opponents.

Once this is done, it must replenish more damage with Synthesis to use Solar Beam again.

    • Custom 2 - Focused Synthesis: Ivysaur needs to replenish 50% damage as opposed to 40%, and it replenishes 2% every three seconds as opposed to every two. However, Solar Beam is much stronger and is essentially a one-hit KO.

Like a ninja, Greninja is a fast fighter with great ground mobility. Even though it has fast falling speed, it still has a good, flexible recovery courtesy of Hydro Pump and having among the highest jump height in the game. It also boasts an impressive combo game, with really quick frame data that can trap opponents in strings of attacks to rack up damage. Its down special Mat Block is very useful for this.

Incineroar
Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon (2016)
Incineroar SSBUltimate
Incineroar (ガオガエン, Gaogaen) is a Fire / Dark dual-type Heel Pokémon introduced in Generation VII. It evolves from Torracat and is the final form of Litten, as well as being on one of the Alolan starter Pokémon. Incineroar has a muscular build, and a belt of fire that it can produce flames from. It is a violent Pokémon that will use underhanded tactics to win a battle. It may also attack the trainers of an opponent, and may not listen to a trainer's orders if it doesn't want to.

Incineroar, being a heavyweight character, is difficult to knock away, and can deal heavy damage with its attacks. Though it lacks any projectiles, it has decent range, giving it a very offensive-based playstyle. Incineroar's throws are extremely potent and a vital part to its moveset, with each of them either being combo starters or KO moves. This, however, means that it must get close to opponents to damage them. Incineroar also has a rather lackluster recovery despite its decent jump height, and is among the slowest characters in the game.

Much of Incineroar's moveset is based off of pro-wrestling moves, with fire attacks sprinkled in. Uniquely, after performing certain attacks, Incineroar will either taunt or express frustration depending on if they hit opponents or not. However, these can be cancelled by performing any action.

Pheromosa
Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon (2016)
795Pheromosa
Pheromosa (フェローチェ, Pheroache) is a Bug / Fighting dual-type Lissome Pokémon introduced in Generation VII. It is one of the Ultra Beasts and is known by the code name UB-02 Beauty. It is not known to evolve into or from any other Pokémon. Its lithe, elegant body allows it to twitch its limbs at an incredible speed of 120 mph. It displays reluctance to touch anything, as if it finds the Pokémon world unclean.

In terms of stats, Pheromosa is a tall, yet lightweight fighter. In fact, it is one of the lightest characters in the game, and can be launched easily because of it. To compensate, it has very fast ground and aerial mobility, and has equally as fast frame data, allowing it to beat opponents to the punch. It has a unique mechanic based on its Beast Boost ability in the Pokémon games; every time it manages to KO an opponent, its stats and attack power will increase by 1.3x. Its defensive capabilities will also increase by 1.2x, but only after the first KO. It can continue boosting its power as it KOs opponents, but if Pheromosa gets KO'ed, all of these boosts will be lost, and it will return to its original state.

Pheromosa's moveset is based on its lightning-quick reflexes. While they don't deal a lot of damage, they have little to no startup and endlag, making them good for combos. The majority of its moveset consists of kicks, offering it decent range as well thanks to its long limbs.

    • Custom 3 - Safe Kick: The kick deals much less damage and cannot meteor smash opponents, but Pheromosa will not take recoil damage if it misses.
  • Down Special - Feint: Pheromosa jumps backward, gaining invincibility frames. If the special button is pressed again, it can throw a flying kick that damages opponents. Otherwise, the jump can be cancelled into its aerial moves.

  • Final Smash - Ultra Space: Pheromosa opens up an Ultra Wormhole that sucks in opponents. If an opponent is sucked in, they are sent to Ultra Space where they are heavily damaged by energy beams. They are then sent back to the stage as the Ultra Wormhole explodes, dealing heavy damage and knockback.
  • Charged State - Ultra Beast Boost: Pheromosa begins glowing a yellow aura. In this state, it becomes as strong as if it had KO'ed 10 opponents in a row, significantly boosting its mobility, attack power, and jump height. It also has more launch resistance in this state.

Chansey
Pokémon Red and Pokémon Greem (1996)
113Chansey
Chansey (ラッキー, Lucky) is a Normal-type Egg Pokémon introduced in Generation I. It evolves from Happiny and evolves into Blissey. It lays several nutritious eggs every day, which it carefully stores in its pouch. These eggs become more nutritious and healthy if Chansey is raised with love and care. A friendly Pokémon, it will share these eggs with injured humans or Pokémon to help heal them. This practice has made them rather popular companion for doctors and nurses.

Chansey is similar in concept to a glass cannon, though plays substantially different from one. Its main advantage against other characters is a reliance on self-healing, accomplished by its Soft-Boiled and Light Screen special attacks. This, combined with Chansey's heavyweight status, make it very difficult to KO. Its other stats are rather mediocre however; its overall mobility is poor and it has below-average jump height, leading to a decent yet predictable recovery.

Many of Chansey's moves have low range and have high startup and endlag, but some can deal high damage. The majority of its moveset consists of punches and kicks, as well as full-body blows that take advantage of its ovoid build. Its smash and crash attacks in particular are powerful, and serve as reliable KO moves.

  • Down Throw: Chansey pins the opponent on the ground before violently sitting on them.

  • Neutral Special - Soft-Boiled: Chansey encases itself in an egg before quickly hatching out of it, glowing a white aura. In this state, any attacks it successfully lands on an opponent will heal itself by 1/4 of the damage dealt, or by 1/6 if the attack is shielded. It is put in this state for 10 seconds before reverting to normal. For five seconds, it will suffer double knockback from attacks during the cooldown; when this passes, Chansey must wait five more seconds to use the attack again. If opponents attack Chansey enough times while in the egg, it will shatter; Chansey will suffer the same cooldown period as if the Soft-Boiled state passed, but without suffering more knockback for the first five seconds. Repeated uses of the move will lower both the amount Chansey heals itself per attack and the amount it remains in the Soft-Boiled state.
    • Custom 1 - Hard-Boiled: Chansey will not heal itself after it lands attacks while in Soft-Boiled state, but its attacks instead deal more damage and knockback. After the state passes, Chansey must endure 10 seconds of increased knockback and 15 seconds of cooldown overall before using it again.
    • Custom 2 - Super Soft-Boiled: Chansey remains in Soft-Boiled state for 15 seconds as opposed to 10, and it heals itself by 1/3 of its attacks' damage as opposed to 1/4. It must remain in the egg for longer and all 10 seconds of cooldown will have Chansey suffer more knockback.
    • Custom 3 - Instant Soft-Boiled: Chansey enters Soft-Boiled state immediately, and does not suffer more knockback during cooldown. However, it only heals itself by 1/5 of its attacks' damage as opposed to 1/4.
  • Side Special - Egg Bomb: Chansey takes an egg out of its pouch and tosses it forward in an arc. Depending on if the move is used while standing still or moving, the egg will either fly in a shorter, faster arc or a longer, slower arc. The egg explodes on impact, damaging all opponents in the blast radius.
    • Custom 1 - Timed Egg Bomb: The egg remains in place for a short time after being thrown. Its blast radius is much larger, and damages opponents multiple times before launching them.
    • Custom 2 - Egg Bomb Batch: Chansey throws three smaller eggs in varying arcs. These each deal less damage and have a smaller blast radius, but cover more range.
    • Custom 3 - Surprise: The eggs have a larger blast radius and deal more damage and knockback. However, sometimes, it can throw Food items instead. These can be used by both Chansey and its opponents.
  • Up Special - Take Down: Chansey leaps upward in an arc, damaging opponents it hits with a headbutt. It continues falling until it hits the ground, an opponent, or the blast zone. If it hits an opponent, it bounces off of them and can use the move again.
    • Custom 1 - Smash Down: Chansey doesn't leap as high, but it can meteor smash opponents it hits.
    • Custom 2 - Quick Take Down: Chansey travels higher and faster, but it deals less damage and doesn't bounce off of opponents if the attack connects, but rather passes through them.
    • Custom 3 - Lateral Take Down: Chansey gains more horizontal distance in exchange for less vertical distance.
  • Down Special - Light Screen: Chansey creates a barrier of light in front of itself. If it is attacked by an opponent, the barrier flashes and stuns the opponent as Chansey heals itself by the amount of damage the attack dealt. When this happens, it can cancel the move into any attack to follow-up. Repeated uses of the move will lower the amount Chansey heals itself, as well as shorten the counter window.
    • Custom 1 - Safeguard: Instead of acting as a counter, the barrier of light protects Chansey from taking damage. It also reflects projectiles.
    • Custom 2 - Smokescreen: Chansey creates a barrier of gas as opposed to a barrier of light. Opponents caught in the gas will have a flower grow on their head.
    • Custom 3 - Intimidate: Instead of healing itself from the opponent's attack, attacking the barrier of light inflicts paralysis on opponents.
  • Final Smash - Egg Batch: Chansey leaps into the air and begins throwing eggs from its pouch. These eggs will rain on the stage and explode on impact, damaging opponents in the blast radius. It returns to the stage afterwards.
  • Charged State - Growth: Chansey grows in size. This significantly increases its range, weight, and power. It also jumps slightly higher in this state.

Ness
EarthBound (1994)
Ness SSBUltimate
Ness (ネス, Ness) is the main protagonist of the EarthBound, the second game in the MOTHER series of RPGs. he is helpful, cheerful, and courageous, living in Onett. He has the strange ability to utilize PSI moves, granting him strong psychic powers. One night, he wakes up from a meteor crash and investigates it. Here, he finds an alien named Buzz Buzz, who says Ness is the one destined to save the world. To accomplish this, he must collect the Eight Melodies and string them together.

Ness is an unusual blend of character archetypes. He is a middleweight with powerful and ranged attacks, as well as a decent recovery. He also has high jump height and slow falling speed. His aerial moves are quite versatile, allowing him to space, combo, and KO opponents reliably. Ness' grab game is also really potent, having some of the strongest throws of the roster. He also possesses several projectiles that can deal heavy damage to opponents. However, he suffers from poor mobility.

Ness' moveset mostly consists of PSI moves, damaging opponents and granting him some range. However, he can also use his baseball bat and yo-yo for his smash and crash attacks. Though his moveset is a mixed bag, mastery of each of his moves is necessary for using him effectively.

Giygas
MOTHER (1989)
Giegue concept render by primantis-d4evk99
Giygas (ギーグ, Gyiyg) is the main antagonist of MOTHER and EarthBound. Known as the Embodiment of Evil, he comes from an alien race that originally had the power of PSI, and after failing to reclaim it from humans, he set out to trap all of reality in infinite darkness. His design in Super Smash Bros. is taken from his prototype design, though his final design, called his "true form", is used in some of his attacks.

Giygas has a lot of strange moves. At first glance, they don't look coherent with each other like other characters, but are in fact coherent for that reason alone. Many of his attacks have unique properties, such as oddly-placed hitboxes, attacks that can cause effects on opponents, and a very strange set of special moves. Mastery of all of these moves is very difficult, but each one of them serve a purpose; in practice, he is very combo-oriented, with many moves such as his dash attack and neutral special being good combo starters, and quick frame data to keep combos going.

Giygas' stats are a mixed bag; despite being tall, he is rather light and can be knocked away easily. However, he also has high jump height and slow falling speed. Ground and air mobility are also above average. These traits make him seem like a glass cannon, even though he lacks a lot of strong attacks. Rather, the attacks that have oddly-placed hitboxes and attacks that inflict negative effects can be used in interesting areas to fend for himself.

Captain Falcon
F-Zero (1991)
CaptainFalcon SSBUltimate
Captain Falcon (キャプテンファルコン, Captain Falcon), full name Douglas Jay Falcon, is the main character of the F-Zero racing series, and the mascot of the series. In races, his personal machine is the Blue Falcon, a balanced vehicle with stats suited to begginer racers. When not racing, he takes up bounty hunting.

Captain Falcon is one of the fastest characters in the game, boasting fast ground and air speed. This allows him to rush at opponents with ease. The power of his attacks is also equally strong, allowing him to KO as quickly as the heavyweight fighters. Key to his character is his impressive combo game, where he can combine speed and power to rack up damage on opponents and set up for a KO. However, he has trouble with recovery, and his fast falling speed and lead him to get comboed as well.

Captain Falcon's moveset from previous games is more or less retained. However, he has been given more options and tools that give his moveset some additional flare, as well as making him a more offensive fighter overall.

  • Charged State - Fiery Falcon: Captain Falcon ignites himself in flames. In this state, his attacks are much more stronger, and most of them are now fire-enhanced. Falcon Punch also takes much less time to charge, and Raptor Boost and Falcon Kick travel much farther.

Marth
Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon and the Blade of Light (1990)
Marth SSBUltimate
Marth (マルス, Marth) is the main protagonist of the first and third games in the Fire Emblem tactical RPG series. He is the prince of Altea, and a descendant of legendart dragon slayer Anri. In his debut game, he and a small group of allies used the divine sword, the Falchion, to slay the dragon Medeus, who took over Altea. In his next appearance, he would need to reclaim the titular Fire Emblem shield in order to defeat former ally Hardin and a reincarnated Medeus.

Marth wields the Falchion in battle. Like many sword-type weapons, it provides Marth long, disjointed range to attack opponents safely from afar. He has a unique mechanic where his attacks deal different amounts of damage depending on what part of the Falchion strikes opponents; hitting them at the tip of the sword deals significantly more damage and knockback, while hitting at the base deals less damage. However, the weaker base hits are able to combo opponents into the tip hits, allowing him to pull off long combos with proper spacing.

Marth's moveset mainly consists of slashes and stabs from the Falchion. In terms of stats, Marth has good speed and jump height, but is middle-lightweight and can be knocked away easier than most other characters. He does, however, possess a good recovery.

Lucina (ɛ)
Fire Emblem Awakening (2012)
Lucina SSBUltimate
Lucina (ルキナ, Lucina) is one of the main protagonists of the thirteenth game in the Fire Emblem series. She, alongside her father Chrom, are descendants of Marth. She is the princess of Ylisse. In the game, she travels to the past to help save the world from a future threat. She disguises herself as Marth, and takes up his anme to keep from being found.

Lucina is Marth's Echo Fighter, and as such they share many of the same attacks and traits. Their movesets are identical, but Lucina wields a different sword; the Falchion Parallel. Compared to Marth's Falchion, the Falchion Parallel doesn't have any sweetspots or sourspots, and instead deals an equal amount of damage across the blade. However, she benefits from having faster frame data than Marth, as well as having slightly faster mobility, meaning she doesn't need to rely on the sourspots for combos.

Ike
Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance (2005)
Ike SSBUltimate (Radiant Dawn)
Ike (アイク, Ike) is the main protagonist of the ninth and tenth games in the Fire Emblem series. He is the legendary Radiant Hero, who became the leader of the Greil Mercenaries after his father's passing. He strives to become an expert swordsman so he may one day avenge his father's death by defeating the Black Knight.

Ike wields the Rangnell in battle, a two-handed sword that allows him to cover a lot of range while also dealing heavy damage. While this grants him above-average KOing power, Ike also suffers from poor mobility and even slower frame data, leaving himself open after some of his stronger attacks. He does have a decent recovery however, with Quick Draw and Aether being decent tools for getting back to the stage.

Ike's moveset consists of slashes, slams, and swings using the Ragnell. As mentioned, they are slow and laggy, but deal heavy damage and knockback. Some of these attacks are also enhanced with fire.

  • Neutral Special - Sol Eruption: Ike plunges the Ragnell into the ground, causing a pillar of flames to erupt around himself and damage opponents. If he hits grounded opponents standing next to him, he will replenish half of the damage he deals. By holding the special button, the move will charge, increasing the damage and the pillar's height. At full charge, Ike creates four flame pillars in front of himself, though only the initial one has healing capabilities.
    • Custom 1 - Tempest: Ike creates a vortex of wind instead of a pillar of fire. It deals less damage and cannot heal Ike, but has windboxes that can push opponents away.

    • Custom 3 - Concealed Eruption: Ike is able to store the move after it is fully charged, allowing him to use it later. However, it deals less damage and knockback, heals Ike less, and will only create one pillar of flame.
  • Side Special - Quick Draw: Ike dashes forward, throwing an outward slash with the Ragnell if he hits an opponent. The move can be charged by holding the special button, and the charge can be cancelled and stored by performing any other action. If used in midair, he will enter a semi-helpless state afterwards, though he can use it again or Aether if he hits an opponent.
    • Custom 1 - Close Combat: Ike throws a shoulder tackle instead of an outward slash. The move charges faster and has priority over opponents' attacks, but deals less damage and knockback.

    • Custom 3 - Shieldbreaker Rush: Ike travels slower and the move takes longer to charge, but the move will instantly break shields.
  • Up Special - Aether: Ike throws the Ragnell upward as it spins, damaging opponents multiple times. Ike them leaps upward to grab it before performing a stall-then-fall downward slash, meteor smashing opponents. Alternatively, pressing the special button again allows Ike to cancel the move and fall into a semi-elpless state instead of falling. With directional inputs, Ike can throw the Ragnell at a more diagonal angle, sacrificing vertical height for more horizontal distance.
    • Custom 1 - Aether Wave: The attack itself deals less damage and Ike can only travel straight upwards, but he creates a beam-like projectile upon landing that tarvels across the ground.
    • Custom 2 - Enticing Aether: The move travels less distance and it takes longer to perform, but the Ragnell creates vacuumboxes as it spins, pulling opponents into it. Because of the longer animation, it also deals more damage.
    • Custom 3 - Grounding Aether: The Ragnell cannot damage opponents as it spins, but Ike deals more damage as he falls. He will bury opponents he lands on.
  • Down Special - Luna: Ike holds a defensive stance. If attacked during this time, he will swing the Ragnell, damaging them and severely decreasing their launch resistance for a short time, indicated by the opponent glowing blue. Repeated uses of the move will lower its effectiveness.
    • Custom 1 - Luna Boost: Ike will increase his own launch resistance instead of decreasing an opponent's.
    • Custom 2 - Lai Luna: The opponents are effected for longer, but their launch resistance isn't decreased as much.
    • Custom 3 - Luna Rage: The opponents' launch resistance are decreased even more severely, but at the cost of Ike having his own launch resistance lowered for longer.
  • Final Smash - Great Aether: Ike dashes forward. If he hits an opponent, he throws an upward slash with the Ragnell, sending them to the top of the stage where he begins throwing a flurry of slashes, finishing with a downward slash that sends him and the opponent to the floor of the stage and launching them.
  • Charged State - Ragnell's Power: Ike holds the Ragnell as it builds up energy, igniting in flames afterwards. In this state, his attacks are much stronger and some of his sword attacks can cause explosions, which cover more range. Luna also lasts longer on opponents and Aether can reach more height.

Robin
Fire Emblem Awakening (2012)
Robin SSBUltimate (Female)
Robin (ルフレ, Reflet) is the default name for the avatar character in the thirteenth game in the Fire Emblem series. She is an amnesic who, after saving a settlement from a large-scale attack despite the enemy's strength and numbers, is invited to join Ylisse's Shepherds as their chief tactician. Both the male and female versions of Robin can be played as.

Robin is unique in that, while her attacks are strong, they are also exhaustible. Her main weapon is the Levin Sword, which deals heavy electric damage to opponents while covering a lot if range. However, it has limited use, as seen on a meter by her stock icon; using attacks with the Levin Sword will drain the meter. Once it is depleted, she can only use her weaker Bronze Sword. However, the meter will recharge when not in use. Her special attacks, which utilize Tomes, have a similar mechanic; while they are very powerful, they have limited usage and cannot be used if their respective meter is emptied.

Robin is a middleweight with average speed and above-average jump height, granting her decent mobility overall. She also has decent attack speed with minimal endlag, making attacks with the Levin Sword good for KOing opponents. Robin specializes in analyzing the opponent and acting accordingly; this and paying attention to her weapons' durability is key to mastering her.

Olimar
Pikmin (2001)
Olimar SSBUltimate
Olimar (オリマー, Olimar) is the main protagonist of the Pikmin series. He comes from the planet Hocotate, and has encountered small creatures called Pikmin throughout his space journeys. In the first game, Olimar needed to use these Pikmin after crash-landing on their planet. In the second game, accompanied by his sidekick Louie, they must collect treasure from the planet to repay their company's, Hocotate Freight's, debt.

Olimar's entire moveset and attributes are built around his team of Pikmin, who follow him throughout the battle. He uses them in many of his attacks, which have different properties, defenses, and weaknesses. There are seven types of Pikmin Olimar can utilize; Red Pikmin deal the most damage and are immune to fire, Yellow Pikmin fly the farthest and are immune to electric damage, Blue Pikmin are immune to water, Purple Pikmin fly the least amount of distance but deal the most knockback, White Pikmin fly the fastest and are immune to poison and dark-based attacks, Rock Pikmin have the most health and are thrown in lobs, and Winged Pikmin deal the most damage when used in Olimar's non-special attacks. Throughout the battle, the Pikmins' leaves will grow into flowers, increasing their damage and knockback. He can summon up to eight Pikmin using Pikmin Pluck. He can also call certain Pikmin out of battle by holding shield and pressing the special button. Management of the Pikmin is key to mastering Olimar, as the Pikmin will die if they suffer 20% damage.

In terms of stats, Olimar is rather lightweight and can be knocked easily. Without Pikmin, his attacks lack a lot of range and knockback, though with Pikmin, many of these issues are addressed. After using a Pikmin, Olimar will use the next one in line.

Villager
Animal Forest (2001)
VillagerAlt4 Ultimate
Villager (むらびと, Murabito) is the name given to the player character in the Animal Crossing series. They are the sole human in a town inhabited by anthropomorphic animals. The appearance of the Villager can also be customized by the player. The role the villager plays varies from paying off a debt to running the town as mayor. The Villager in Super Smash Bros. is the male Villager wearing the Blue Tie-Dye Tee shirt as he appears on the boxart for Animal Crossing: City Folk.

Villager is rather small and light, so he can be easily knocked away. However, he has one of the best recoveries in the game courtesy of his up special Balloon Trip, allowing him to recover from virtually anywhere. He also has an effective zoning and edgeguarding game, thanks to an assortment of projectiles and powerful aerials. He also sports average ground mobility and above-average aerial mobility.

Villager's moveset is based off of various objects and items in the Animal Crossing series. They are surprisingly powerful compared to other characters in his weight class, though they aren't very fast. Therefore, he lacks reliable combos and setups.

Isabelle
Animal Crossing: New Leaf (2012)
Isabelle SSBUltimate
Isabelle (しずえ, Shizue) is a major character in the Animal Crossing series, debuting in Animal Crossing: New Leaf. She serves as the mayor's secretary, helping the player with running the town. She is generally nice and friendly, and enjoys working for the player. She has a twin brother, Digby, who runs the Happy Home Showcase, and is rumored to have a crush on K.K. Slider. Since her debut, she has become the mascot of the Animal Crossing series.

Isabelle is a semi-clone of Villager, borrowing a lot of his moves while also using some of her own. Like Villager, she is a small lightweight with average speed and above-average air speed, with an impressive recovery. While she doesn't have as good of a zoning game as Villager, she has a much better edgeguarding game thanks to her side special Fishing Rod.

Like Villager, Isabelle's moveset draws from various items and objects in Animal Crossing. These attacks are generally faster than Villager's, but they deal less damage overall. While this means she has trouble KOing opponents, she has a better combo game, and can follow up her attacks more easily.

Ankha
Animal Crossing: City Folk (2008)
Ankha NL
Ankha (ナイル, Nairu) is a snooty cat villager in the Animal Crossing series, debuting in Animal Crossing: City Folk. She is arrogant, impatient, and rude towards the player at the start of the game, though will eventually warm up to them. She also likes gossip, and tends to live in an Egyptian-style home.

In terms of moveset, Ankha acts as an in-between of Villaer and Isabelle, taking moves from both while also using some attacks of her own. Like them, she is a lightweight with average speed, and has surprisingly good KO power for her weight class. Her recovery is also good, allowing her to get back to the stage from virtually anywhere. Like Villager though, her moves are slow, and it can be hard to combo opponents. Like Isabelle however, she has a great edgeguarding game.

Ankha's moveset utilizes various items and objects from the Animal Crossing series, like Isabelle and Villager. While some of her moves are identical in function to either of their attacks, they are themed after ancient Egyptian culture to give them more visual flare.

Little Mac
Punch-Out!! (1984)
LittleMac SSBUltimate
Little Mac (リトルマック, Little Mac) is the main protagonist of the Punch-Out!! boxing series. He is a 17-year-old boxing enthusiast hailing from The Bronx, New York, and wanted to become champion of the WVBA, but no one would train him because of his small size. By chance, he met former heavyweight champion Doc Louis, who trained him and even taught him his signature Star Punch. Thanks to him, Little Mac would rise the ranks and become champion, taking down fighters much larger than him.

Little Mac's playstyle predominantly favors grounded play. His ground mobility is very fast, and his ground moves have very quick frame data and are strong enough to KO characters at low-to-mid percents. As he lands attacks, he will continually full up stars next to his icon. Once at east one is filled, he can use his down special, which changes its power depending on how many stars are filled. However, if he gets damaged enough, he will lose a star. While he is good on the ground, he has abysmal aerial options, with weak aerials, the lowest jump height in the game, and a really poor recovery.

Typical for a boxer, Little Mac's attacks are all punches, hooks, and uppercuts, which are fast and can deal heavy damage. He also takes techniques from his own games. Doc Louis will sometimes comment during the battle, cheering him on.

Shulk
Xenoblade Chronicles (2010)
Shulk SSBUltimate
Shulk (シュルク, Shulk) is the main protagonist of the 2010 RPG Xenoblade Chronicles. When first introduced, he's an intelligent yet socially awkward young man, working on Colony 9's weapons development, making weapons for himself and others. He has a fascination with the Monado, the only weapon capable of damaging the Mechon. After an attack on Colony 9, Shulk discovers that he is capable of wielding the Monado, and occasionally gets visions of the future while using it. With it, he sets out to take revenge on the Mechon for attacking his home.

In terms of stats, Shulk is rather heavyweight, especially for his size and stature. Because he holds the Monado in hand rather than keeping it sheathed behind his back in previous games, Shulk has much better frame data. Uniquely, Shulk is able to use his neutral special Monado Arts to temporarily change his stats, allowing him to take on a variety of situations. These Arts can only be active for a certain amount of time, and have a cooldown afterwards. However, he is able to immediately change from one Art to another.

Shulk wields the Monado throughout the battle, and it provides him with some of the biggest disjointed hitboxes in the roster. With the exception of smash and crash attacks, moves involving the Monado have a unique property where pressing the attack button again will reveal the Monado's blade beam, not only increasing range but dealing further damage, at the cost of slightly more endlag. However, Shulk also possesses slow mobility, so it can be hard for him to string combos together.

      • 盾 Shield is a defense-based Art, which increases Shulk's damage and knockback resistance. However, his jump height and ground mobility are also decreased.
      • 疾 Speed is an Art that increases Shulk's mobility. His walking, dashing, and air speed are all increased, though the damage he deals with his attacks are also decreased. His jump height is also slightly lowered.
      • 破 Purge is an Art that significantly increases Shulk's jump height, and his aerial mobility is also increased, making it ideal for recovery. Meanwhile, his falling speed is decreased, and Shulk takes more damage from attacks.
      • 轟 Cyclone is a unique art that grants Shulk the ability to damage opponents by simply dashing or falling into them. His falling speed is also increase dramatically, and his jump height is given a slight increase. However, his attacks deal less knockback, and Shulk has less knockback resistance himself.
      • 斬 Buster greatly increases the damage and knockback that Shulk's attacks deal. However, he also takes more damage and knockback from opponents' attacks while the Art is active.
      • 鎧 Armor grants Shulk super armor during some of his attacks, allowing him to ignore opponents' moves and approach better. However, his speed and jump height are decreased, and he takes more damage from attacks.
      • 喰 Eater is an Art that grants Shulk no statistical buffs while decreasing the damage and knockback he deals. However, opponents attacked by the Monado's blade beam while this Art is active will begin glowing red. In this state, they will take gradual damage, and their mobility becomes slightly nerfed.
      • 機 Enchant is an Art similar to Eater in that it decreases Shulk's damage and knockback resistance while granting no statistical buffs. It has the reverse effect when opponents are hit by the Monado's blade beam; instead of gradually damaging opponents hit by it, Shulk will be slightly healed with each attack from the blade beam he lands.
    • Custom 1 - Decisive Arts: Arts last for 15 seconds as opposed to 10, and their advantages are slightly increased. However, Shulk cannot cancel an Art once it is active.
    • Custom 2 - Hyper Arts: The Arts' advantages and disadvantages are both increased. The cooldown for each is eight seconds as opposed to five.
    • Custom 3 - Pressure Arts: The Arts last for five seconds as opposed to 10, and the cooldown for each is 10 seconds as opposed to five. However, all Arts have significantly less disadvantages.
  • Side Special - Back Slash: Shulk leaps forward while slamming the Monado into the ground, attacking with its blade beam. The move deals more damage to opponents facing away from him.
    • Custom 1 - Charging Back Slash: Shulk gains super armor while leaping forward, but deals significantly less damage to opponents facing him.
    • Custom 2 - Leaping Back Slash: Shulk leaps high into the air before falling down with the Monado. Has less horizontal reach.
    • Custom 3 - Back Slash Wave: Shulk deals less damage, but sends out a beam projectile that travels across the ground when he lands, covering more distance. Has slightly more endlag.
  • Up Special - Air Slash: Shulk leaps upward while slashing the Monado with its blade beam, falling into a helpless state afterwards. If the special button is pressed again at the peak of his jump, he will follow with an outward slash that deals more damage and knockback.
    • Custom 1 - Rising Air Slash: Shulk leaps much higher, but cannot use the second slash at the peak of his jump.
    • Custom 2 - Advancing Air Slash: Shulk doesn't leap as high, but the second slash grans him some lateral distance upon use.
    • Custom 3 - Mighty Air Slash: Shylk doesn't damage opponents while leaping, but the second slash will deal much more damage and knockback.
  • Down Special - Stream Edge: Shulk rushes forward while throwing an inward slash with the Monado. If used in midair, Shulk will instead dash at a diagonally-downward angle while slashing. The move has some startup lag, but if the attack connects, opponents will be inflicted with paralysis. Just as Shulk lands the attack, it can be cancelled into any of his other moves.
    • Custom 1 - Stream Edge Dash: There is significantly less startup lag and Shulk travels farther, but the move deals less damage and cannot be cancelled.
    • Custom 2 - Stream Edge Rush: Instead of inflicting paralysis on opponents, Shulk damages them multiple times before launching them as he dashes. Shulk cannot travel as fast or as far.
    • Custom 3 - Strong Stream Edge: Instead of inflicting paralysis on opponents, Shulk simply knocks them away. There is less endlag but Shulk travels slower.
  • Final Smash - Chain Attack: Shulk slashes the Monado forward. If he hits an opponent, they are locked in a cinematic where Riki, Duban, and Fiora begin damaging the opponent. Shulk then attacks with an overhead slash with the Monado, sending them back to the stage and launching them.
  • Charged State - Ultra Monado: Shulk uses the Monado's power and starts glowing a blue aura. In this state, stat boosts of Shulk's Speed, Jump, Shield, and Buster Arts are combined with none of the drawbacks, greatly boosting his mobility, defense, and damaging capabilities.

Spring Man
ARMS (2017)
SpringManAlt
Spring Man (スプリングマン, Spring Man) is one of the playable characters in the 2017 fighting game ARMS. He is the latest fighter to enter the ARMS Grand Prix, representing the Spring Gym. Along with the other fighters, he fights by extending his ARMS to punch opponents from afar. He dreams to become champion of the ARMS Grand Prix.

Much like in ARMS, Spring Man can extend his ARMS for most of his attacks. While this does give him among the best disjointed reach of any fighter in the game, these moves are somewhat laggy and can leave him open for long periods of time. In terms of stats, Spring Man is a middleweight with decent jump height, though has slow mobility overall. Aside from having long-reaching hitboxes, his ARMS can deal special effects to opponents. These can be changed with his down special, ARMS Switch, and be used for different situations.

Spring Man attacks with punches that utilize his long ARMS, though can also use headbutts, kicks, and spins. In particular, his smash and crash attacks can cover more range if they are charged for longer.

Snip & Clip
Snipperclips (2017)
Snip&clip
Snip & Clip (スニップ&クリップ, Snip & Clip) are a duo of paper-like characters that the player controls in the Nintendo Switch launch title Snipperclips. In the game, one or two players would take control of them, rotating cutting each other into shapes using the Joy-Cons to solve shape and physics-based puzzles. Each level would pose a different challenge that required the player(s) to take advantage of these skills.

Snip & Clip fight as a duo, and the player controls both simultaneously. They have a unique mechanic where some of their body will be cut away as they take damage, with a small chunk being removed every time they take 10% damage. This makes them lighter and easier to knock away, but also gives them faster mobility and higher jump height, as well as making their hurtboxes smaller and altering their moves' hitboxes. If they avoid taking damage for five seconds, some of their body will regenerate depending on how damaged they are; their body will regenerate more quickly if they are at 90% damage than if they were at 10%.

By default, Snip & Clip are middleweights with average stats all around, sporting decent mobility and jump height. Their attacks mostly consist of objects found in Snipperclips, as well as the action of snipping to damage opponents.
