Super Smash Bros. Defiance (Japanese: 大乱闘スマッシュブラザーズで内部矛盾 Great Melee Smash Brothers Internal Conflict) is a fighting game in the Super Smash Bros. series, produced by Sora Ltd. in collaboration with Ninkancho and Bandai Namco Entertainment Inc. for the Display system. As the fifth generation and sixth game in the series, Super Smash Bros. Defiance aims to make the "definitive" Smash experience by representing a fairer variety of Nintendo franchises and third-parties.


Super Smash Bros. Defiance plays according to the typical Super Smash Bros. style, wherein unlike other fighting games, the goal is to ring other fighters out of a 2D stage. Attacking a fighter increases their damage percent, which in turn increases their knockback.

To attack, players use DisplayLP DisplayD in conjunction with the face buttons DisplayA and DisplayB. Players can also grab other fighters using DisplayR DisplayZR, and shield to defend against most oncoming attacks (but not grabs) using DisplayL DisplayZL. These controls can be customized in-game. If a fighter is launched away from the stage, they can usually still recover using jumps and other moves.

A fighter can break a Smash Ball to activate their Final Smash, a powerful one-use attack.


Players can choose from a large selection of Nintendo's most popular characters, alongside representatives of second- and third-party properties.

Early information suggested that veteran characters would keep the majority of their moves from previous games. However, later in development, it was announced that the movesets of at least perfect-attendance veterans would be retooled in the same vein as newcomers'. Therefore, the information in the following table is subject to change.

  • The game was made in collaboration with Bandai Namco and Ninkancho to lessen the stress on series director Masahiro Sakurai without entirely handing the series over to another development team.
  • As with many other games for the Display, the title contains a word (Defiance) that starts with the letter D. Names in other languages follow this pattern as well.
    • The Japanese name contains the affix で内部矛盾 written starting with a character pronounced /de/—just as in the Japanese transliteration of Display, ディスプレイ.
    • For the Spanish, French, and Portuguese names, the English Defiance was translated into each language's equivalent, respectively Desafío, Défi, and Desafio.
    • The German name ends with Dynastie, translating to Dynasty and referring to the continuance of the series.
    • The Italian and Dutch names include the affixes Difesa and Defensie, respectively, which translate to Defense.
