Villager makes his second return to the Super Smash Bros. franchise in Super 5mash Bros. 5. The Villager utilizes a variety of items and attacks in his move set with someone of them called wacky and odd. His speed has increased though his jumping ability has been slightly nerfed. His down special also does much more damage before and is a great KO attack though it has been sped down. Aesthetically, the Villager is based off his Animal Crossing: New Leaf appearance as, as such, is more taller and has a further reach. This makes him more of a bigger target but also him to have a reach that his Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and 3DS did not have.

Changes from Smash 4

Villager's trophies can be earned by completing Classic Mode, Adventure Mode, All-Star Mode, and Boss Battle mode. In addition, further trophies can be found during matches and at the Trophy Shop.


Unlock: Classic Mode

"The Villager is the mayor of Smashville! Pretty ironic that the Villager is the only human character yet rules the village of animals. The village seems peaceful as their aren't any anti-human riots occurring. The Villager seems to be on top of their game by building new work projects, making friends, donating to the museum, and visiting friends towns. If this makes the other villagers happy, then by all means we should allow the Mayor to continue with his work!"

Villager (Alt)

Unlock: Adventure Mode Console/Blue

"Timber is an interesting ability where the Villager grows a large tree within seconds! She must have a green thumb to cause a tree...a healthy one no less to shoot up within seconds merely from water. Regardless of the physics and realism of it, the Villager can cause it to grow and then take an axe to chop it down! How horrifying! The chopping of the tree causes it to crash down to deal damage anyone unfortunate to be under it. If only she called Timber..."

Villager (Alt)

Unlock: Adventure Mode Handheld/Pink

"The Villager can throw a furniture leaf to cause it to become, of all things, furniture. Whether this is alien technology or not, it is quite bizarre how the furniture is compressed into a tiny leaf and then transforms with a *puff*. When the Villager throws it in front of her; it transforms and wackes the unlucky person int he side of the head. Imagine getting a sofa thrown at you! It must hurt! And to think what Tom Nook would say about those damages!"

Pirate Look

Unlock: Boss Battle Console

"The Villager is a digger of fossils, the catcher of insects, and fisher of fish. A decorator, a fashion designer, a tourist, and a home owner. The Villager also became a mayor! However, no one thought the Villager could also become a pirate! Yargh! Shiver me timbers! Donning on the Pirate Hat, shirt, and pants as well as the eye-patch - you don't need rum and a treasure chest to make you an authenticate pirate...though he is missing the parrot...the parrot is very important.

Grape Look

Unlock: Boss Battle Handheld/

"While the Villager harvests fruits such as pears, apples, and peaches - she has never harvested grapes before. Maybe grapes do not exist in he Animal Crossing world? Well, regardless, the Villager can thrown on the Grape Outfit! Putting on the grape hat, grape shirt, and pants transforms the Villager from a human to a human-fruit hybrid! A Fruihuman. A Humaruit....never mind those all sound dreadful! Regardless, she isn't soft if you punch her so don't expect her to squash like a grape!"

'Villager (U.F.O.)

Unlock: Match or Trophy Shop Red

"Gulliver is not only a sailor but also an astronaut apparently. Whether he's washing up ashore or crashing from the sky; he always has a story to tale...or recollections of one. If you help Gulliver remember, he may just reward you later! Or maybe he might let you hitch a ride on his U.F.O. The Villager can summon Gulliver's U.F.O. and use it as a way to reach to the heavens! It can also carry opponents upwards as well so be careful!"

Villager (Pocket)

Unlock: Match or Trophy Shop Green

"One of the Villager's most frightening abilities is his Pocket ability! He can store anything: items, projectiles, and stage hazards in those pockets of his. He can only store one though so that is good news! Imagine firing a projectile at him and knowing for sure it will demolish him but the just pockets it. Without so much of a surprised look on his face! That smugness just eating away at you! In your disbelief, he throws it back in your face! Disgusting! The Villager is the embodiment of cunning and deceit.

Villager (Salmon)

Unlock: Match or Trophy Shop

"Give me a V! V!! Give me an I! I!! Give me a L! L!! Wait...if we are going to spell V-I-L-L-A-G-E-R...we will run out of room on this trophy description! The Villager isn't just a home owner and mayor, she is also a cheerleader! Cheering on her friends and villagers to be a positive force within the neighborhood! Of course, there are bad Villagers as well who neglect their towns but they are quickly usurped by a more dutiful and caring Villager! So let's here that Animal Crossing spirit!

Villager (White)

Unlock: Match or Trophy Shop

"All work and no play makes Villager a dull boy. When Villager dons on his Work Shirt and Black Formal Pants, he is also business. While the Villager tends to enjoy playing and spending time with friends, this Villager likes balancing out the villages accounts, writing up contracts, and filing paperwork! Those are the type you should watch out for because one they snap, it's all over! He just hopes he doesn't break his pen in the fighting."

Villager (Left) Orange

Unlock: Match or Trophy Shop

"The Villager is always under the burden of loans. Loans, loans, loans. And who is to blame but Tom Nook who always, with a smile on his face, demands more money for upgrading the house. While the burden of owing bells can be a bit much; the Villager is ready to party once they pay off all of the loans! She will dance, stomp her feet, and pump her fist in the air as she is loan free (for now...).

'Red Hero Look

Unlock: Complete a Villager Character Challenge

"Look, it's a bird! It's a plane! No, it's just Villager dressed as a super hero. The Red Hero Look is a costume set the Villager can wear when not fighting when he does everyday work. He delivers presents with regular speed! He breaks apart rocks with average human strength! He pops balloons using his natural vision! He does everything a normal person would....though with the upside of being mayor! Gee, I wonder if we will ever get a Mayor Man costume if the Villager becomes mayor."

Dream Home

Unlock: All Star Mode (Easy or Normal)

"The joy of owning a home in Animal Crossing is one of the highlights of the game. Designing the living space, putting up wallpaper, buying fun furniture, and coloring the roof! Yes, the pesky loans can be depressing but it's all worth it in the end! The Dream House is everything a Villager could want and it's all thanks to Tom Nook and his nephews. They trap an unwanted visitor in the house but, as if there was a gas leak, the house explodes to Tom Nook's surprise and the Villager's sadness. Well...maybe next time."

Golden Axe

Unlock: Unlock all Villager's trophies

"The Golden Axe, King of All Axes! In Animal Crossing, there is a Golden Shovel and a Golden Watering Can. The Golden Axe is a sight to behold. Given from Leif after purchasing 50 saplings, this Axe is virtually indestructible! You can go ahead and whack it against rocks and trees and it won't chip at all! In Super Smash Bros., the Villager can cause trees to grow almost instantly and won't even be bothered by attacks while watering. The Villager can swing this Golden Axe to cut down trees for high damage...or just chase after opponents swinging it like a maniac."
