Duck Hunt (or Duck Hunt Duo) are characters with his great projectile and zoning gameplay in Ultra Smash Bros. IV and they return for the second time in this game after SSB4. They have been confirmed alongside with the classic characters alongside with Little Mac, Pac-Man, Mega Man, Dr. MarioIce Climbers and R.O.B including with the newcomers: Excitebike Rider and Classic Pit at the Famicom Smash Week. Generally, the Duck Hunt dog is a hunter-dog who catches ducks in his own shooter game. They have been combined in teams since SSB4 alongside with other NES characters as the Wild Gunman cowboy's and the posseses the can from Hogan's Alley. They have a strong similarity to the Ice Climbers and especially Banjo & Kazooie.

Duck Hunt recycled their voiceclips from SSB4 but they have now more animalistic and realistic dog and duck sounds on each attack such as Donkey Kong and Diddy Kong.

Duck Hunt ranked the 99th place of the 103th in the tier list (D), putting him before Isaac and after Zelda, making them a downgrade compairing to the previous game since they were a mid-tier team.

Duck Hunt remains their place as a second best camping character, behind Villager. Only their down-air gives the opponents a diagonal meteor smash like Samus' down-air.

Their only problem is only their KO potential making them more complicated against fast characters. Their matchup overall are pretty good for mid-tier characters but not against higher characters.


  • Comparing to SSB4, Duck Hunt Duo is in this game a starter and on his previous game was unlockable.
  • Duck Hunt was announced Friday at the Famicom Smash Week.
  • Duck Hunt ranked higher as a mid-tier character in the Japanese version (NTSC-J) of Ultra Smash Bros. IV.
