Super Smash Bros. Something Else's tagline

Super Smash Bros. Something Else is a 2026 crossover fighting game developed by Bandai Namco Studios, Sora Ltd. and Lazy Studios, and published by Nintendo for the Nintendo Switch. A reboot of the series' previous game, Super Smash Bros. Something, it serves as the seventh installment in the overall Super Smash Bros. series. After the sudden cancellation of the original Super Smash Bros. Something, this new game promises to "focus on quality more than quantity".

Like the original game, Super Smash Bros. Something Else's goal is to create the biggest and most fun Super Smash Bros. game. Like its predecessors, the game is a crossover between various Nintendo and 3rd-party video games in an all-out slamfest. Changes to the formula primarily included changes to all returning veterans, alongside a wide variety of new characters and game modes.


Super Smash Bros. Something Else plays very similarly to past games in the Super Smash Bros. series, as it is a fighting game for up to 8 players in which characters from Nintendo games and other third-party franchises try to knock each other out of an arena. Unlike other fighting games, which often have a health system, by default Super Smash Bros. Something Else uses a percentage system. When players are damaged, their percentage goes up, increasing the distance in which they are launched. Getting launched off-screen results in a KO, and a point for whoever landed the final blow.

Unlike other fighting games, in Super Smash Bros. Something Else each character controls virtually the same. Players have access to Normal attacks and Special attacks, which change depending on if they are in the air, or the ground, and what direction they are holding the control stick. Alongside those, the player can also Jump and utilize platforms scattered around stages, Shield against attacks, Grab enemies and toss them around, utilize a wide variety of Items that spawn on stage, or unleash a powerful Final Smash if they have broken a Smash Ball or filled up their Final Smash Meter.

Gameplay Changes

  • Character Overhauls: Many of the game's veterans have received reworks to their movesets or entire overhauls, in order to make those characters feel more modern and mesh well with newer characters.
  • Air Dashing: A new ability that many characters can perform (check a characters' moveset to see if they can perform one), inputting a dash motion in the air allows you to perform a short Air Dash. This is great for maneuvering through the air, dodging attacks or getting closer to an enemy. After an air dash, you can cancel the attack into an aerial. You can only perform one Air Dash after leaving the ground. There are two types of air dashes:
    • Standard Air Dash: Allows you to dash forwards or backwards.
    • 8-Way Air Dash: Allows you to dash in all 8 directions.
  • Air Shielding & Air Grabbing: Players can now Shield and Grab in the air, allowing for even more options while airborne. Your shield while in the air will take less damage, but attacks will knock you around more than on the ground. Air grabbing is easier to break out of than on the ground, though certain grabs change properties while in the air.
  • Float: Floating is now a mechanic that multiple characters can use, rather than just Peach.
  • Grab Reversal: If you're being grabbed and the enemy is about to throw you, tap the opposite direction the enemy is throwing you in to perform a Grab Reversal. It can be hard to pull off as the timing is a bit strict, but pulling it off allows you to cancel your enemy's throw and cause you to grab them.
  • Parry: Replacing Perfect Shielding, pressing the attack button while shielding allows you to perform a Parry. With a perfectly-timed parry, you'll absorb all the damage of an attack, and recover very quickly, allowing you to counterattack.
  • Shield Specials: Shield Specials have been given to more characters, mostly characters that have different transformations or characters with some kind of gimmick or ammo.
  • Stealing: Grab an enemy while they are holding an item will cause the item they're holding to be put in your hands.


  • L-Stick: Move
  • A: Normal Attack
  • B: Special Attack
  • X/Y: Jump
  • L/R: Grab
  • ZL/ZR: Shield
  • +/-: Pause
  • Directional Buttons: Taunt

Game Modes



The signature mode of the Super Smash Bros. series, up to eight players, CPUs or Amiibos can play against each other on a stage of their choosing. Before a match, players can select various rulesets, and even create and save their own for quick selections. Matches can have one of six modes:

  • Time: In Time, the winner is determined by whoever gets the most points when the timer runs out. Players gain a point when they KO an opponent, but lose a point when they get KOed themselves.
  • Stock: In Stock, the winner is determined by whoever is the last player standing. Each player has a limited number of lives, with players losing one every time they are KOed. If a player loses all of their lives, they are eliminated. Players can also add a time limit, in which case if the time runs out, the player with the most remaining stocks is the winner.
  • Stamina: In Stamina, the winner is determined by whoever is the last player standing. Unlike other game modes, rather than a percentage meter, Stamina instead uses a health bar. Once the health bar reaches zero, that player is instantly KOed, losing a stock.
  • Coin: In Coin, the winner is determined by whoever gets the most coins when the timer runs out. Coins will constantly spawn randomly all across the stage, floating in the air, and simply touching them will cause you to collect them. Hitting enemies will cause them to drop coins, and KOing enemies will cause them to drop half their coin total.
  • Crown: In Crown, the winner is determined by whoever gets the most points when the timer runs out. Players gain points by grabbing and holding onto a crown that randomly spawns on stage. With the crown on, you slowly build up points, but your movement is slowed, and taking enough damage will cause you to drop the ground. In matches with more than 4 players, a second crown is added.
  • Tag: In Tag, the winner is determined by whoever is the last player standing. At the start of the match, a random player is tagged, and after a set time, the tagged person is KOed, losing a stock. The tagged player is given increased speed, and if they hit another player, they will transfer the tag onto them, leaving them vulnerable. In matches with more than 4 players, two players will be tagged at a time, though once the number of players goes back down to 4, it reverts back to one.

Special Smash

Special Smash includes a variety of special game modes that change up Smash Bros. formula.

  • Custom Smash: Play standard Smash with a variety of modifiers. Change everyone's size, their speed, their weight, give them wacky effects, or combine them all together for pure chaos!
  • Smashdown: After every match, the previously chosen characters will be unselectable. Test your skills with multiple characters and see how long you can survive!
  • Squad Strike: Assemble a team from 2 up to 5 characters, and fight against each other to see who's the last player standing!
  • Super Sudden Death: Everyone is at 300% and the screen will zoom in as time goes on. Be prepared for tons of KOs!


Tourney allows up to 64 players to play in a tournament-styled bracket to see who wins! Players can customize the rules of matches, alongside customize the number of players per round.

Smash Run

In Smash Run, players are tasked with navigating a large maze-like island under a time limit, tasked with defeating enemies to earn stat-boosting stickers. These stats include:

  • Attack: Represented by an orange fist, this increases the power of normal attacks.
  • Special: Represented by a red star, this increases the power of special attacks.
  • Defense: Represented by a blue shield, this reduces knockback and increases the durability of the player's shield.
  • Speed: Represented by a green shoe, this increases the players speed in the ground and air.
  • Jump: Represented by a yellow wing, this increases the player's jumping height.
  • Arms: Represented by a purple hammer, this increases the power of items, projectiles, grabs and healing.

If a player is KOed, either by the enemies or the other players around the map, they will respawn but lose some of their stickers, leaving them to whoever happens to find them. Once time is up, the players compete in one of many matches to determine the victor, carrying over the stat boosts they gained while exploring.


Adventure Mode

Adventure Mode acts as one Super Smash Bros. Something Else's main singleplayer modes. The mode is much similar to Melee's Adventure Mode, instead of other adventure modes like Subspace Emissary and World of Light. The story centers around your chosen character being transported into a mysterious world, creating out of the various universes represented in Super Smash Bros. A mysterious voice tells them that this world is in danger, and it's up to them to save it (though some characters ignore this, some seeking to obtain power or some other goal).

The mode follows a level-based system, with the player completing various levels involving platforming and defeating enemies. During various points, the player can choose different paths to take, taking them to different levels of varying difficulty. Occasionally players will meet and eventually fight other characters, each fight starting with a small cutscene of the two characters interacting. At the end, players reach Final Destination, where they must fight against Master Hand as the final boss.

Classic Mode

Classic Mode has players choose a character and difficulty, and fight through a series of 11 stages, culminating in a final fight against a boss with some connection to the player's chosen character. The characters chosen in each stage is random and the goal is to simply KO them all. Performing certain actions during a fight will earn you Points. The more points you have, the more rewards you get when you complete the mode. Like in Smash 4, the player can select a difficulty on a scale from 0.1 to 9.9. The higher the difficulty, the more powerful your enemies will be, and the more Gold it will cost to get in, but it increases the amount rewards you get. Players are always given 2 stocks per round, and if they lose them all, they can continue at the cost of some Gold.

All-Star Mode

All-Star Mode tasks players with defeating the game's entire roster in one go. Fights are split into rounds, with each round having you fight against 6-8 character before moving on. Between each round you are taken to a rest area, where you can use a limited number of healing items before your next fight. Like in Classic Mode, you can choose a difficulty, and the higher the difficulty the more rewards you get if you win. This mode can only be played once you've unlocked every playable character.

  • Home-Run Contest: Home-Run Contest tasks players with knocking a Sandbag as far as possible. At the start, players have 10 seconds to rack up damage, and when five seconds are left, a Home-Run Bat spawns in, allowing the player to launch the Sandbag.
  • Multi-Man Smash: Multi-Man Smash tasks players with defeating the Fighting Mii Team under various pretenses. These include:
    • 30-Man: Challenges the player with defeating 30 opponents.
    • 100-Man: Challenges the player with defeating 100 opponents.
    • 3-Minute: Challenges the player with surviving for 3 minutes while defeating as many opponents as possible.
    • Rival: Challenges the player with defeating more opponents than their Rival (either a CPU or another player) in a 3 minute time-limit.
    • Endless: Challenges the player with defeating as many opponents as possible before being KO'ed themselves.
    • Cruel: Challenges the player with defeating as many opponents as possible before being KO'ed themselves. The Miis in this mode are incredibly tough and powerful.
  • Race to the Finish: Race to the Finish tasks players with reaching the enemy of a large maze. Players start at the center, with the exits being on each cardinal direction, allowing certain characters to take different routes depending on what what excel at the most. However, enemies and hazards are littered across the maze, and as the player fights a black hole begins expanding from the center, instantly KOing the player if they touch it.
  • Boss Rush: Boss Rush is similar to All-Star, tasking the player with defeating the game's bosses in one go. Between each round you are taken to a rest area, where you can use a limited number of healing items before your next fight. This mode can only be played once you've defeated every boss in the game.


Training allows a player to practice and experiment without participating in an actual match. The mode allows players to control various gameplay aspects, from simple things like summoning items and setting the enemy's AI, to more technical things like showing launch trajectory and displaying hitboxes and hurtboxes.


The Workshop acts as the player's destination for creating and customizing things for the game. Players can use the things they create in the Workshop in local play, or share them online for other players to use. The different Workshop modes include:

  • Mii Fighters: Here, the player can create and customize Mii Fighters to play as in various game modes. The player can choose between three types: Brawler, Swordfighter and Gunner, alongside customizing hats, outfits, specials and voice.
  • Stage Builder: Here, the player can create their own custom stages by drawing platforms. Players can customize the terrain of the platforms, utilize layers to create backgrounds, move and rotate platforms, and add hazards like Cannons, Springs, Ladders and Wind.
  • Amiibo: Here, the player can use Amiibos to create Figure Fighters. Figure Fighters can be put into matches and level up as they as they learn from the enemies they fight against. They level up overtime, capping at Level 50, though this can be disabled at any point.



Quickplay allows the player to quickly join matches against random players on the Internet. The mode supports both singleplayer and co-op with 2 players. The game features two main modes:

  • For Fun: This mode focuses on more friendly and chaotic battles, with items being enabled, stages featuring hazards, and different rulesets being used. In this mode you can also set Preferred Rules, so you can more easily get a match with the rules you want.
  • For Glory: This mode focuses on more fair and competitive battles, with no items, the only stages being Battlefield and Final Destination, and only featuring 3-stock matches. In this mode the player has a Ranking that increases and decreases depending on their performance. The higher a player's ranking, the more likely they are to face stronger opponents.

Online Tourney

Online Tourney allows the player to play alongside many other players in a tournament-styled bracket. There are various tournaments that the player can join in:

  • Standard Tourney: This tourney focuses on 4-player timed free-for-alls. These have items enables and hazards enables.
  • 1-on-1 Tourney: This tourney focuses on 1-on-1 competitive stock matches. Items are disables and stages are limited to only Battlefield and Final Destination.
  • Event Tourney: These tourneys are based on a specific theme, allowing only certain characters, stages or items. They rotate regularly every few days.

Battle Arenas

Battle Arenas allows the players to battle each other in private or public arenas. The creator of the arena can customize the rules, similar to normal Smash. Up to eight players can be in a Battle Arena at a time, and players can join The Ring to get into the fight, the Waiting Area to immediately join in once a match has concluded, and the Spectator Stand to spectate the match.


Spectate allows the players to view live online battles or replays, and bet Gold on their outcomes. If the player you betted on wins, you earn your Gold back alongside other rewards.

Shared Content

Shared Content allows players to view, share and download content created by other players. These include things like Mii Fighters, Custom Stages and Replays. The player can also Like content they enjoy, and if something has enough likes, it will appear in the Featured category in the mode's front page.



Trophies are collectible items representing various characters, items and other elements from Super Smash Bros. various represented series. Trophies are obtained throughout the game, randomly during matches, as rewards in single-player, in the shop, and in Trophy Battle. Trophies are split between four different ranks, Common, Rare, Epic and Mythical, with the higher their rank the more rare they are, alongside their value. Trophies can also be equipped in local matches or in Trophy Battle, each trophy giving the player a stat boost or item to support them in battle.

  • Trophy Gallery: Trophy Gallery allows you to view your collected trophies. Each trophy is fully modeled, allowing the player to rotate and zoom into it, and features a short description alongside a small list of appearances.
  • Trophy Hoard: Trophy Hoard allows the player view all of their trophies in a massive hoard. The player can sort where the trophies appear, like by series or by name. The player can also create Dioramas with their trophies, allowing you to arrange them to create fun pictures, and share them with other players online.
  • Trophy Battle: Trophy Battle allows the player to fight in randomly appearing Trophy Battles, where they must play a battle that corresponds with a trophy to earn it. If you win the battle, you unlock that trophy. Trophy Battles rotate regularly, so keep checking if you want to find more trophies.


The Shop allows the player to use Gold they obtain throughout the game and purchase things they can use in the game. These include things like Trophies, Mii Costumes, Music and Alternate Costumes. You can also sell duplicate trophies in your collection to earn some Gold. New to this game is Shopkeepers. Every few hours a different character will run the shop, and each have special quirks that make them unique from the others.

Funky Kong Artwork - Donkey Kong Country Tropical Freeze.png

Funky Kong

The cool surfing member of the Kong Family, Funky Kong is a relatively uncommon shopkeeper. He sells more Mii Costumes than other shopkeepers, and focuses on selling trophies based around characters and locations. He may even have an Alternate Costume if you're lucky enough. If you're selling, he'll offer extra Gold to trophies based on platforming games.


A small-time businessman found across the Legend of Zelda series, Beedle is another common shopkeeper. He almost never has anything rare, but the things he does sell come at a discounted price. If you're selling, he'll offer extra Gold to trophies based on adventure games.
Anna Heroes.png


A reoccuring character in the Fire Emblem series, Anna is the rarest of the shopkeepers. She offers the rarest items, Epic and Mythical trophies and even some alternate costumes. However, her things can be expensive, so make sure you save up when she appears. If you're selling, she'll offer extra Gold to trophies based on role-playing games and strategy games.
Timmy & Tommy ACaF.png

Timmy & Tommy

Two raccoon twins who operate the Nookling stores throughout the Animal Crossing games, Timmy & Tommy are the most common of the shopkeepers. They are the most basic, having no gimmicks to them, and their offerings vary between visits. If you're selling, they'll offer extra Gold to trophies based on retro games, puzzle games and games with relaxing tones.


A horseshoe crab who operates Ammo Knights in the Splatoon series, Sheldon is a relatively uncommon shopkeeper. He sells more Music than other shopkeepers, and focuses on selling trophies based on items and weapons. If you're selling, he'll offer extra Gold to trophies based on shooting games, action games and fighting games.


Challenges features a wide variety of objectives that the player can perform in order to earn prizes like Gold, Trophies, Mii Costumes, Music and Alternate Costumes. Like in Ultimate, the challenges are split between various categories, including Smash, Adventure Mode, Games & More, Trophies, Online and Other.


The Album allows the player to view screenshots and replays they've taken while they were playing. The player can also share them online for others to see.


In Sounds, the player can listen to Super Smash Bros. Something Else's extensive soundtrack. Tracks are sorted by series, and the player can create playlists or set favorite songs so they can easily access them. Sounds also allows you to listen to each character's sound effects.


In Records, the player can view their stats, milestones and battle data. Everything from learning your most played character, to your largest number of KOs, to all the people you've fought Online, can be found here!


At the game's launch, Super Smash Bros. Something Else features 129 playable characters (If Diddy & Dixie, Red and May's Pokemon, Pyra & Mythra, Papyrus & Sans, and each of the Mii Fighters are counted as separate characters), the most out for any Smash Bros. game. Of the game's roster, 77 are returning veterans, while the other 52 are newcomers to the series. Similar to Smash 4, the characters are sorted chronologically by series. Echo Fighters do not return in this game, and the Echo Fighters from Ultimate were either given more unique movesets, or were removed.

The Legend of Zelda

Bokoblins are goblin-like creatures under the control of Ganon. Often found in small groups, they are primarily equipped with clubs, and will attack you with a combo of hits. Blue Bokoblins are stronger than Red Bokoblins, but generally act the same.
KTD Bronto Burt artwork 3.png

A Piranha Plant with ... legs? It attacks by walking around, occasionally shooting a fireball directly at the player, or biting at the player if they are close.
Flea Man.png


Fleamen are a common nuisance throughout Dracula's Castle. Like their namesake, they attack by hopping around wildly like a flea, dealing damage on contact. They can be hard to hit due to their small size, so use your biggest attack to cover as much area as possible.
Fly Guy.png

Fly Guy

These Shy Guys have propellers on their heads, allowing them to fly in the air. They don't actively attack the player, instead carrying around various items. Hit them and they'll drop these items, allowing you to pick them up.


Small bug-like creatures, Geemers are a common enemy in the Metroid series. They crawl along surfaces, dealing damage to players with their spiky backs. Attacking them with a projectile is recommended.
Goomba walk NSMBU.png


Once loyal to the Mushroom Kingdom, the Goombas switched sides when Bowser invaded. When approached, that charge after the player, attacking with a headbutt. However, they aren't the strongest of enemies, and can be KOed with a single jump.
Iridescent Flint Beetle.png

Iridescent Flint Beetle

A beetle with a green iridescent carapace, Iridescent Flint Beetles do not actively attack the player. They'll run away from the player, eventually digging underground and disappearing if not damaged for a long time. Damaging them will cause them to drop rare items.
Klaptrap SSBUltimate.png

Donkey Kong

Small members of the Kremlings, Klaptraps are known for their large jaws which they use to bite their enemies. Because of them, the player cannot attack them from the front, otherwise they'll snap at the player. Attack them from above or behind, and they'll be defeated very easily.
Paratroopa - New Super Mario Bros.png

Koopa Paratroopa

Koopa Paratroopas are Koopa Troopas with wings on their backs. Green Paratroopas hop up and down along the ground, while Red Paratroopas hover in the air. Both deal damage on contact. After they take enough damage, they'll lose their wings and become a Koopa Troopa.
Koopa Troopa - New Super Mario Bros.png

Koopa Troopa

Koopa Troopas are the main soldiers if Bowser's army. They are found wandering around, dealing damage on contact with the enemy. If they take enough damage, they will retreat into their shells, and can be used as a projectile.

Kritter SSB for Wii U.png

Donkey Kong

A member of the Kremlings, Kritters are crocodilian foes that serve King K. Rool. They come in two varieties, with Green Kritters attacking with a bite attack, and Blue Kritters attacking with a spinning jump attack.
Medusa Head
Medusa Heads are creatures spawned endlessly from Medusa's hair, taking the appearance of a floating head. They fly up and down in a wavy pattern, ramming into the player and dealing damage. Yellow Medusa Heads have the ability to turn the player into stone, leaving them vulnerable to damage.

Mega Man

A robot designed for construction sites, the Mettaurs are a common foe Mega Man faces throughout his series. They hide underneath their indestructible helmets, occasionally popping out and firing a three-way shot before ducking back down.

  • The game's original name was going to be Super Smash Bros. Something Redux, and the game was even teased Project Redux before its release. However, it was changes as the game's name didn't flow very well. Eventually Super Smash Bros. Something Else was chosen.
  • Super Smash Bros. Something Else was started after the cancellation of the original Super Smash Bros. Something, which was caused by:
    • Technical difficulties as a result of UCP, which made it almost impossible to edit the original page without it lagging constantly.
    • A wish for a blank slate, as the creators felt like the game was too big and felt outdated compared to Lazy Studio's other works.
  • This is the first game in the Super Smash Bros. series in which true non-videogame characters would appear in the Super Smash Bros. series, with Donald and Goofy appearing in Sora's Final Smash, and Mickey Mouse appearing as a trophy.
    • Their inclusion was kept as according to the creators, "Half of Kingdom Heart's identity is Disney, so we felt it was important to include them even if they don't originate in videogames."


  • This game cut several characters from Ultimate. These include, Chrom, Dark Pit, Dr. Mario, Pichu, Piranha Plant, Richter, Sheik, Wii Fit Trainer and Young Link. Some cuts were done to remove clones (Like Dr. Mario and Young Link), while others were replaced by other characters on the roster (Like Sheik with Impa, and Wii Fit Trainer with Ring Fit Trainee).
    • Of the cut characters, Dr. Mario, Dark Pit and Richter were instead added as unlockable alternate costumes for Mario, Pit and Simon respectively. Piranha Plant appears as part of Waluigi's moveset and Chrom still appears in Robin's Final Smash.
  • Currently, the series with the most playable characters is Pokémon, with a total of 13 characters (if Red and May's Pokémon are counted as separate characters), beating out the Mario series by 3 characters.
  • As of the game's launch, Hatterene is currently the most recent character to appear in Something Else, debuting in November 2019. This is beating out the previous record holder, Byleth, by four months.
  • As with every game, Kirby has a variety of stones that he can transform into with his Stone special attack. Many have been included These stones include:
List of Stone Transformations
  • A pink stone with its eyes closed. A common transformation in the Kirby games.
  • A statue of Kirby waving at the screen.
  • A spiked iron ball.
  • A 100-ton weight
  • A stone statue of Master Hand punching downward.
  • A Brick Block from the Mario series.
  • A Thwomp from the Mario series.
  • A statue of Mario's Stone form while using the Statue Leaf from Super Mario 3D Land.
  • An oil drum from Donkey Kong.
  • An Ancient Treasure Chest from The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.
  • A small version of the Chozo Statues from Metroid.
  • A statue of Palutena.
  • A statue of Rick, Kine and Coo from Kirby.
  • A Geodude from Pokemon.
  • A golden statue of Tom Nook from Animal Crossing holding bags of Bells.
  • A Garbage Block from Panel de Pon.
  • A statue of Qbby from BOXBOY! and Jobski from Part Time UFO.
  • The Master Emerald from Sonic the Hedgehog.
  • A small Arcade Cabinet of either Street Fighter 2, Street Fighter 3: Third Strike or Darkstalkers.
  • An 3D statue of PAC-MAN in his classic 8-bit form.
  • A Bone Pillar from Castlevania.
  • A statue of a Moogle riding a Chocobo, both from Final Fantasy.
  • A Sand Block from Minecraft.
  • A gravestone. Randomly, either the name of a character from previous Super Smash Bros. games that were cut, or the name of your opponent will be on the grave.
  • A golden block with the HAL Laboratory logo on it. This is the rarest of the transformations.

Scrapped Content

  • Several new characters were also considered to appear in Super Smash Bros. Something Else, but were cut for various reasons.
    • Several Gen 8 Pokémon: Many Pokémon introduced in Generation 8 were considered to be included, like Rillaboom, Toxtricity, and even weirder picks like Dracovish and Dragapult. Eventually, Hatterene was chosen, as the creators wanted to experiment with a moveset involving Trick Room.
      • Rillaboom was cut specifically because the creators felt there were too many starter Pokémon in the roster.
      • Snom was also considered to appear but the creators felt they shouldn't include them as they appeared in the original version of Something.
    • Spring Man & Ribbon Girl: Were considered as ARMS reps as they were the game's mascots. Eventually it was decided to scrap Ribbon Girl for Min Min as she had already appeared in Smash and had a larger fanbase. Spring Man was then cut as well, as the creators wanted someone different enough from Min Min to warrant a slot. As a result, Dr. Coyle was added and Spring Man was turned into an Assist Trophy.
    • Rex: Was originally considered as the Xenoblade Chronicles 2 representative, but was replaced when Pyra and Mythra were announced to appear as characters in Ultimate. Like in that game, he still appears in taunts and the pair's Final Smash.
    • Roll: Was originally considered as the second Mega Man representative, but was replaced with Zero late in development, as the creators were unhappy with how her moveset ended up.
    • Hat Kid: Was considered as the 5th indie rep, but was later replaced with Papyrus and Sans as the creators felt they were important to indies in general. Hat Kid would instead appear as a Mii Costume.
  • Originally, every character was going to have a Shield Special. However, the creators felt most of the new shield specials did not mesh well with most character's moveset. Though most were cut, a good chunk of them, including ones that involve transforming or are important to a character's gimmick, were kept.
