Jake's Super Smash Bros. (2015)
Super Smash Bros. Ultimate
Media Included Nintendo Switch game cartridge

Jake's Super Smash Bros. logo sideways, also known simply as Super Smash Bros. or JSSB, is a reboot to 2015's author appeal project of the same name and a replacement to 2017's Super Smash Bros. Switch. The game is considered as both the seventh instalment of the Super Smash Bros. series, following 2018's Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, as well as a soft-reboot for it. Unlike previous titles in the series, the game is not directed by series creator Masahiro Sakurai but instead by Jake, who also serves as the game's announcer; Sakurai still works on the game as a design consultant and producer.

Jake's Super Smash Bros. retains the same gameplay elements as previous Super Smash Bros. titles, such as being a 2.5D fighting game set within platformer-esque levels, as well as including a story mode that reimagines and builds on the plot of Super Smash Bros. Brawl's "Subspace Emissary" mode.

North American players who pre-ordered the game as certain gaming outlets got a two-disc CD collection titled JSSB: Special Music Collection along with the game. This collection contained a large selection of the new remixes created for Jake's Super Smash Bros., as well as a new medley of the Super Smash Bros. Melee and Super Smash Bros. Brawl main themes not heard anywhere in the game. In Japan this CD collection was made available through My Nintendo, while Nintendo of Europe sold this CD for a limited time through their online store.

Gameplay

As with previous entries in the Super Smash Bros. series, Jake's Super Smash Bros. is a 2.5D mascot fighting game that ditches several aspects that "traditional" fighting games, such as Tekken or Street Fighter, utilize. The game features a number of different characters from various Nintendo-owned and third party franchises, and up to eight can fight at once on a single stage. Instead of the normal, flat stages found in most fighting games, Jake's Super Smash Bros. features ones with a variety of different platforms and hazards that may affect one's playstyle.

Unlike most fighting games, which utilize combo-based movesets for fighters, Jake's Super Smash Bros. simplifies this- all playable characters have a single 'standard attack' button, and a 'special attack' button, with the control stick's directional input determining what attack they perform. As such, all fighters have eight main attacks- up, down, side, and neutral standard and special moves. There are also tilt and smash attacks, which are more powerful versions of the fighters' standard moves; tilt attacks occur when a control stick is not tilted fully in a single direction and are generally more powerful than normal standard attacks, while smash attacks are even more powerful standard attacks that can be charged up by holding down the standard move button. When airborne, fighters are also granted a different set of standard moves, and some special moves may also act differently. Additionally, airborne fighters are granted another standard attack, as tilting the control stick forwards or backwards causes the fighter to perform a different attack. Finally, all fighters also have a Final Smash, a powerful special move that replaces the character's neutral special move once they have broken a Smash Ball.

Also unlike most other fighting games, the aim of a battle is not to deplete a foe's HP bar but instead knock them past the invisible blast lines located around the stage, with damage increasing a fighter's "damage percentage", which increases the amount of knockback they take; a fighter whose damage percentage is at 20% will take far less knockback than one whose damage percentage is at 120%, for instance.

Compared to other Super Smash Bros. titles, the game aims to be more casual than most other titles. Characters generally move at a speed faster than those in Super Smash Bros. Brawl do, but slower than in Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS / Wii U, and have about as much weight as those in the former do. Because of the game's more-casual target audience, many of the series' techniques utilized in competitive play, such as directional air-dodging and the "wavedashing" glitch, are not present in the game. The game does not completely ignore changes made after Brawl however, as some of the gameplay elements from Ultimate - such as the ability to attack while climbing a ladder, and the fact that both fighters i a 1-on-1 match take more damage and knockback than in matches with more players - have been retained.

Stickers

Stickers are a gameplay mechanic that are very much comparable to the Custom Parts included in Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS / Wii U. Stickers will drop during battle should at least one single item be enabled to spawn via the item selection. All collected stickers have certain powers bond to them, which the player can place onto the base of a playable character's trophy in order to power them up in certain ways. Stickers use artwork depicting characters from various media, and the size of the stickers denote the amount or strength of the powers attributed to it. Whether or not the effects of the stickers applied to a character are active during a battle can be decided via the options menu, and the active effects are displayed to all players before the battle begins.

Should a sticker be removed from a character, it, as well as any of the powers that the sticker contains, will be permanently destroyed. Additionally, stickers can not be overlapped on the base of a trophy, and as such the player must arrange them in such a way in order to optimize characters to suit their playstyle.

Jake's Super Smash Bros. includes over 100 unique playable characters[1] from Nintendo-owned IPs developed throughout the years. The game's roster includes characters from over 30 of Nintendo's intellectual properties. While the series represented are primarily ones that have seen releases in more-recent years, there are a number of more-obscure characters that represent Nintendo's rich history. The game's philosophy is not to include a roster full of characters that "make sense" as fighters or as representatives of a series, but rather to include a large number of characters that are interesting and may not be as well known even to longtime Nintendo fans.[2]

In addition to characters owned by Nintendo, select characters owned by third party companies will also be playable including representatives from SEGA, Capcom, Bandai Namco, and Koei Tecmo, among others. According to the creator of the game, any character that has debuted in a video game is eligible to appear as a playable character in the game, though characters from Nintendo's first- and second-party franchises are to be prioritized over any third-party fighter. A small number of characters hailing from media other than video games will also be included in the game, with the stipulation that they must have previously appeared in a video game released for a Nintendo console.

The game features unlockable characters; notably most characters not owned by Nintendo are not available by default. All characters have two different methods that can be used to unlock them: a wholly-unique criteria must be completed, such as completing a certain mode with a specific character, or a character will be unlocked once they join the player's party in the game's story mode, Crown of Orchid.

A number of characters with movesets based on another character's, dubbed "Echo Fighters" and marked with a lowercase Epsilon (ϵ), are also included in the game, but do not increase the number count on the roster. Most of these Echo Fighters are also unlockable.

The playable characters are broken up into two waves. The first 100 unique fighters - as well as Echo Fighters Dark Samus, Metal Sonic, Apollo, Midbus, Toadette, Sakura, Fay, and Morpho Knight - are classified as being "Jake's Super Smash Bros. Originals", while all others are classified as part of "Jake's Super Smash Bros. Complete"[3], as only the former were originally planned to be added into the game. Seven characters that were announced as part of Complete, six of whom appeared in previous Super Smash Bros. titles, were announced prior to the reveal of all 100 of the original playable characters[4] as a tease towards the expanded roster: Sheik, Marth, Lucario, Snake, Toon Link, Mewtwo, and (albeit not by name) Kumatora.

Special Traits

Some playable characters have their own special quirks, often derived from abilities they may demonstrate within their series of origin. These traits may not be attack-based, instead granting them special defensive- or movement-based techniques that other fighters may be unable to use. There are three abilities that some characters may also exhibit, as well: the ability to crawl, wall jump, and the ability to recover or grab opponents from afar (known as tethering).

Unique Traits

JSSB Character icon - Luigi Luigi has less traction than other fighters, meaning he will slide for a moment after sprinting.
JSSB Character icon - Peach When airborne and not in a [pseudo-]helpless state, Peach can temporarily float in the air and move left and right by holding the jump button.
JSSB Character icon - Bowser Due to the horns on his head, those who attempt to Footstool Jump off Bowser will take minor damage, and will not harm Bowser in any way. Bowser also has an ability known as "Tough Guy", which makes it so Bowser won't flinch from attacks that deal light knockback.
JSSB Character icon - Yoshi Yoshi's second jump is a flutter jump, which sees him jump up a much further distance than most other characters.
JSSB Character icon - Yarn Yoshi Yarn Yoshi's second jump is a flutter jump, which sees him jump up a much further distance than most other characters.
JSSB Character icon - Donkey Kong Donkey Kong is capable of carrying heavy items without much issue. While other fighters travel at a slow speed, Donkey Kong travels at his normal walking speed and is even capable of performing a short hop while carrying such items.
JSSB Character icon - Diddy Kong Diddy Kong can cling to walls for a short period of time.
JSSB Character icon - Dixie Kong By utilizing her ponytail, Dixie is capable of carrying heavy items without much issue. While other fighters travel at a slow speed, Dixie Kong travels at her normal walking speed, though unlike Donkey Kong she is unable to perform a hop while doing so.
JSSB Character icon - Link When Link is stood still, he can not be hit by projectiles from his front; they will instead hit his shield.
JSSB Character icon - Young Link When Young Link is stood still, he can not be hit by projectiles from his front; they will instead hit his shield.
JSSB Character icon - Ganondorf Much like he does when wielding the Great Swords weapon in Hyrule Warriors, Ganondorf has a Darkness Gauge that fills up as he performs attacks that utilize his dark magic. Upon being even slightly filled, Ganondorf's down special move changes drastically, become fairly powerful once the bar has been completely filled.
JSSB Character icon - Jigglypuff Jigglypuff can jump five times in a row as opposed to the two that most other fighters can, though each jump decreases in height.
JSSB Character icon - Lucario Lucario's aura strengthens as it takes damage, increasing the amount of damage and knockback Lucario deals.
JSSB Character icon - Litten Fire-based projectile attacks deal less damage to Litten than they would to other fighters.
JSSB Character icon - Kirby Kirby can jump five times in a row as opposed to the two that most other fighters can, though each jump decreases in height.
JSSB Character icon - King Dedede King Dedede can jump five times in a row as opposed to the two that most other fighters can, though each jump decreases in height.
JSSB Character icon - Reporter The Reporter bobs her head in time to a specific rhythm. If attacks are timed to this rhythm, they will deal substantially more damage and knockback than they otherwise would. If attacks are continuously timed accordingly, with no missteps, their power will further increase.
JSSB Character icon - Spring Man Depending on his distance from a foe, Spring Man may grab a far-away foe with his spring ARMS or a close foe with his normal arms, which both have a different throw and pummel attack.
JSSB Character icon - Pit Pit can jump four times in a row as opposed to the two that most other fighters can, though each jump decreases in height.
JSSB Character icon - Dark Pit Dark Pit can jump four times in a row as opposed to the two that most other fighters can, though each jump decreases in height.
JSSB Character icon - Little Mac While dashing, Little Mac will dodge weaker incoming projectiles with a sidestep. Little Mac also has a bar that fills up as he deals and takes damage. Once filled, this "Power Meter" changes his neutral special move - Straight Lunge - into the powerful Star Uppercut which, though it has little range (Little Mac must be directly beside another fighter to hit them), the move deals enough damage and knockback to KO any foe above 35% (those with lower weights, such as Kirby, can be KO'd at lower percentages). The Star Uppercut can not be blocked nor countered.
JSSB Character icon - Olimar Every different colour of Pikmin has its own unique attributes, which means players should be strategical in how each colour is used. Red Pikmin are immune to fire attacks and deal fire-based damage, and they deal more damage than other types of Pikmin do when they initially latch onto a foe. Yellow Pikmin fly in an arc and have slightly less health than Red Pikmin, but deal and are immune to electrical damage. Blue Pikmin have higher health than Red Pikmin, are the only colour that are capable of swimming (all others will simply perish once they hit the water's surface), and are also immune to water-based attacks and take less damage from ice-based ones. Purple Pikmin are the slowest and heaviest, but have the most amount of health and, while they do not latch on to foes to damage them, they do perform a tackle when in the air in order to knock them back. White Pikmin are the most agile and have the least amount of health, but they can be thrown the furthest and deal three times the amount of damage as a normal Pikmin would when it latches on to a foe.
JSSB Character icon - Inkling Many of the Inkling's attacks make use of ink, which they have a limited supply of. A small gauge appears next to the Inkling's damage percentage to denote how much ink remains in their tank, and this will be automatically refilled completely by being KO'd. The Inkling can also slowly refill their ink tank by crouching, which sees them transform into their squid form and hide in a puddle of ink that makes them difficult to see and hit. Attacks that use up ink will visibly cover the Inkling's foes, and the amount that they are covered increases the amount of damage and knockback that the Inkling deals to them. As all of Inkling's alternate costumes give them different ink colours, the ink's bonus effects only apply to the Inkling that covered that fighter. The ink will fade over time, when a fighter enters water that they can swim in, when KO'd, or when another Inkling sprays them with ink.
JSSB Character icon - Tethu Should Tethu tumble off of a ledge and into water, Esna will allow him to run atop the water for a few steps, allowing him to perform an attack or bounce off the water instead of going into his swimming animation.
JSSB Character icon - Ice Climbers The two Ice Climbers work together as one unit, even though the player only controls Popo. The CPU-controlled Nana will follow the player's movements and attacks, increasing her difficulty as Popo takes damage. While the damage percentage on the UI only displays the damage that Popo takes, Nana has her own, unseen, damage percentage that also affects the knockback she takes. Additionally, Nana can be KO'd but the player will only lose a stock or point should Popo be KO'd; both will disappear should Popo be KO'd first. Finally, due to the boots they wear, both Popo and Nana have higher traction than other fighters and will not slide around on icy platforms.
JSSB Character icon - Mii Knight Due to the nature of the Mii being almost fully customizable, it does not have a special trait that affects it in the battle. Instead, the size and weight of a Mii determine most of its stats, with its height, weight, running speed, and strength being directly connected to these variables. As such, two Miis can face each other but have very different statistical attributes.
JSSB Character icon - Mii Musician Due to the nature of the Mii being almost fully customizable, it does not have a special trait that affects it in the battle. Instead, the size and weight of a Mii determine most of its stats, with its height, weight, running speed, and strength being directly connected to these variables. As such, two Miis can face each other but have very different statistical attributes.
JSSB Character icon - Bowser Jr. Bowser Jr. takes less damage depending on whether he or the Junior Clown Car are hit. Attacks that hit the Junior Clown Car deal 0.88x their normal amount of damage, while those that hit Bowser Jr. directly deal 1.15x their normal amount.
JSSB Character icon - Blue Bowser Due to the horns on his head, those who attempt to Footstool Jump off Blue Bowser will take minor damage, and will not harm Blue Bowser in any way.
JSSB Character icon - Koopa Troopa Koopa Troopa takes different amounts of damage and knockback depending on whether he is attacked from the front or from behind. From behind, due to his shell, Koopa takes slightly less damage but more knockback, whereas the opposite is true should he be hit from the front.
JSSB Character icon - Midbus Midbus has an ability known as "Tough Guy", which makes it so he won't flinch from attacks that deal light knockback.
JSSB Character icon - Donkey Kong Jr. Donkey Kong Jr. is capable of carrying heavy items without much issue. While other fighters travel at a slow speed, Donkey Kong Jr. travels at his normal walking speed, though unlike Donkey Kong he is unable to perform a hop while doing so.
JSSB Character icon - Ashley Ashley fights alongside her little imp servant Red as a tag-team, though Ashley uses him more like a weapon than an actual partner. Ashley's moveset revolves around utilizing Red's powers, and as such she would be at a large disadvantage should he be KO'd. Once KO'd, Red will respawn after a short amount of time has passed.
JSSB Character icon - Toon Link When Toon Link is stood still, he can not be hit by projectiles from his front; they will instead hit his shield.
JSSB Character icon - Deoxys The player can change Deoxys' Forme in the order of Normal → Speed → Attack → Defense. These Formes change Deoxys' weight, movement speed, jump height, attack power, side special move, and defensive capabilities.
JSSB Character icon - Zoroark Upon initially spawning onto the stage, either at the beginning of a match or after being KO'd, Zoroark's Illusion ability will activate and it will take the appearance of another fighter on the stage. A disguised Zoroark has a slightly subdued colour scheme, and when sprinting a light purple trail follows behind Zoroark, in order to differentiate the two fighters. After sustaining enough damage or being hit by an attack that deals a substantial amount of knockback, Zoroark will transform into its normal appearance.
JSSB Character icon - Moon When not in a helpless state, holding the jump button while in the air will cause Moon to release her Rowlet and hold on to it, allowing her to glide forwards quickly.
JSSB Character icon - Ridley Ridley can jump five times in a row as opposed to the two that most other fighters can, though each jump decreases in height.
JSSB Character icon - Meta Knight Meta Knight can jump five times in a row as opposed to the two that most other fighters can, though each jump decreases in height. Meta Knight's up special move also transitions him into a forwards glide, though he will fall helpless upon performing an attack or taking any damage.
JSSB Character icon - Morpho Knight Morpho Knight can jump five times in a row as opposed to the two that most other fighters can, though each jump decreases in height.
JSSB Character icon - Marth The tip of Marth's sword deals more damage and knockback than the rest of the blade does.
JSSB Character icon - Callie Instead of crouching like other characters would, holding down on the control stick sees Callie transform into her squid form and hide in a puddle of ink, making her almost fully invulnerable to attacks that do not hit her from straight above.
JSSB Character icon - Marie Instead of crouching like other characters would, holding down on the control stick sees Marie transform into her squid form and hide in a puddle of ink, making her almost fully invulnerable to attacks that do not hit her from straight above.
JSSB Character icon - Shulk Via the use of his neutral special move, Monado Arts, Shulk is capable of temporarily altering his stats, often in dramatic ways. He has five Arts that focus on certain aspects of his character: Jump, Speed, Shield, Attack, and Smash.
JSSB Character icon - Wii Fit Trainer Using her down special move, Deep Breathing, the Wii Fit Trainer can temporarily increase all of her stats and heal for a very small amount of damage (roughly 2%) should she perform it successfully.
JSSB Character icon - Ness Ness uses his PSI powers to propel him upwards a fair distance for his second jump.
JSSB Character icon - Urban Champion The Urban Champion has a stamina bar that depletes as he takes damage and performs attacks consecutively and filling as he moves around or dodges. When full, the Urban Champion's movement speed, and damage and knockback output is heavily increased, and all of these are decreased as this gauge empties. When completely empty, the Urban Champion's shield becomes stronger, but his attacks are much weaker than normal.
JSSB Character icon - Mike The Super Scope that Mike wields throughout his standard and smash attacks is treated as a sort of item, meaning players can knock it out of him by dealing enough damage or knockback to him in a single blow; though other fighters are unable to pick up this Super Scope. If he loses the Super Scope he holds normally, Mike will have an entirely-different set of standard, aerial, and smash attacks; he will eventually pull another one out after a certain amount of time has passed. The Super Scope Mike uses for his special attacks is treated differently, as he will only pull this Super Scope out for these attacks.
JSSB Character icon - AiAi Using his down special move, AiAi can alter his movement capabilities and damage output by trapping himself within his Monkey Ball. When outside he is more agile with balanced air and ground games, but when trapped in the Monkey Ball he becomes much stronger when grounded yet increasingly useless when airborne.
JSSB Character icon - Joker Joker's dodge has him appear as a black dot that rushes around quickly; because of this, he has the fastest dodge animation in the game. If beneath a semi-soft platform, he can also teleport up onto it by pressing up on the control stick while shielding.
JSSB Character icon - Ludger Ludger's ability to switch weapons essentially makes him three characters in one, as all of his three weapons have completely different movesets and affect his movement speed and weight.
JSSB Character icon - Heihachi All of Heihachi's special attacks have very precise sweetspots that add additional effects to how the attack would behave otherwise.
JSSB Character icon - Ryu Much like how special attacks are performed within the Street Fighter series, the player can also perform stronger versions of Ryu's normal special attacks via a series of directional inputs followed by either the standard or special attack button.
JSSB Character icon - Sakura Much like how special attacks are performed within the Street Fighter series, the player can also perform stronger versions of Sakura's normal special attacks via a series of directional inputs followed by either the standard or special attack button.
JSSB Character icon - Snake Snake utilizes the Stun Knife from Metal Gear Solid 4 in many of his standard attacks, which has a precise sweetspot that can paralyze foes in place for a moment.
JSSB Character icon - Cloud Cloud has a special gauge known has a Limit Gauge, that charges up as he deals and receives damage. When fully charged, Cloud will begin to glow, and power up the next special attack he performs in addition to increasing his move speed. Once one special move is performed, the gauge will reset. The player can see the current state of the Limit Gauge, as well as forcibly charge it, via Cloud's normal down special move, which changes once it is full.
JSSB Character icon - Yukimura Yukimura has a Hyper Gauge that appears above his damage percentage, which fills up as he dishes out damage. Once filled completely, his neutral special move activates Hyper Mode, which causes all of his attacks to increase in power, his general speed to increase slightly, and for fire to appear in some of his smash and aerial attacks that would not usually include this. After Hyper Mode has been activated, the gauge will drain slowly, and Hyper Mode will end once it has been completely emptied. Additionally, due to the combo-attack-oriented battle system of the Samurai Warriors series, none of Yukimura's special attacks cause him to enter a fully-helpless state; only a pseudo-helpless one.
JSSB Character icon - Ragna Some of Ragna's special moves heal him slightly should they be successfully performed on a foe.
JSSB Character icon - Akiho Akiho fights alongside the Tanegashimachine developed by her sister and the Robot Research Club she presided over. The Tanegashimachine can be defeated by itself, but a point will only be gained should Akiho herself be KO'd, as the Tanegashimachine will respawn after a period of time.
JSSB Character icon - Monokuma Monokuma has a "Despair Gauge", fashioned after the Focus Gauge of Danganronpa V3: Killing Harmony, that increases as he takes damage and decreases slowly whenever he doesn't. When full Monokuma will become powered up, increasing the amount of damage he deals, the amount of knockback foes take, and his movement speed; the gauge will not begin to empty once it is filled, though it will only remain full for a short amount of time.
JSSB Character icon - Shantae Via her down special move, Shantae has the ability to transform into her monkey, bat, spider, and elephant forms, each of which have their own standard attack and different stats. Her monkey form is small and very agile, but her attack is weak; her bat form allows her to hover over the ground and "fly" (jump) up to six times; her spider form allows her to scuttle up vertical surfaces for a very short duration of time; and her elephant form is incredibly heavy but slow and has only a single, and very weak, jump.

Main article: Jake's Super Smash Bros./Stages

Jake's Super Smash Bros. includes a number of different stages based on a large pool of Nintendo IPs, as well as select third party series; all third party series with a playable character representative have at least one stage, but other third party series are represented solely with a stage and no playable character counterpart. Unlike traditional fighting games, which tend to feature flat stages, Super Smash Bros. instead opts for a stage designs that border of levels from a platforming title, with a number of different platforms and obstacles being present on stages. Obstacles can be toggled on and off through the settings. Stages are based off various locales from a number of different titles, and consist primarily of two types of platforms: solid platforms, and soft platforms; while the former is self-explanatory, the latter allows fighters to drop-down come-up through the platform. Other types of platforms exist as well. Like in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, all stages support up to eight players at one time.

The Stage Morph mechanic from Super Smash Bros. Ultimate returns in Jake's Super Smash Bros. When this option is turned on, the stage will randomly shift between two selected stages (or random, should that option be chosen instead) during the battle. When larger stages transition into smaller ones, a Black Hole will appear to drag all fighters into the centre area so that they are not automatically KO'd as the stage morphs. Additionally, stage bosses do not appear when Stage Morph is active.

Stage Bosses

Some playable stages include bosses as stage hazards. Unlike normal stage hazards, stage bosses can actually be defeated and will cease appearing once they are. Additionally these bosses act as more dangerous hazards, having a multitude of different attacks, and often grant a point to the fighter that dealt the last hit in timed matches.

Brutus
Brutus model BOII
Brutus is an enemy in the Zombies mode of Call of Duty: Black Ops II and Call of Duty: Black Ops 4, appearing on the maps Mob of the Dead and Blood of the Dead. Brutus is a prison guard employed at Alcatraz, and appears to be the leader of the zombies that invade the prison. As a stage boss, Brutus mainly affects the battle indirectly through his presence in the background of the Alcatraz stage - by yelling and stomping his feet, he can summon geysers of lava or cause the screen to shake, and he can also shoot currents of electricity horizontally through the stage. Brutus himself is perhaps the weakest of the stage bosses, as he only has a single attack that, while strong in both dealing damage and launching his foes, lacks significant range: hitting fighters with his truncheon. He grants the fighter who actually defeats him a point in timed matches, much like the other stage bosses in Super Smash Bros. Brutus is notably one of the only two stage bosses to actually speak, saying phrases like "I will be reborn!" and "I will be back!" when he disappears from the stage if not KO'd.

Dark Emperor
The Dark Emperor
The Dark Emperor is the main antagonist of Find Mii II, who appears on the stage based upon the Find Mii series. The Dark Emperor is a being of darkness who intends to swallow the world's light, thus plunging the world into one of everlasting shadows, which he will rule over. As the stage boss of Find Mii, the Dark Emperor throws his large size around with powerful thrashing, and will dash across the stage and into the background after remaining on the stage for a short period of time. Though he only has two attacks, he can also damage foes as he enters into the stage's boundaries with a spin and can push away nearby fighters when he roars. Like most stage bosses, the Dark Emperor will grant the one who defeated him a point.

Giga Mermaid
E3-2016-yay-for-shantae-1024x576
The Giga Mermaid boss from Shantae: Half-Genie Hero appears as the sole stage hazard for the Mermaid Falls stage. The Giga Mermaid attacks foes by releasing up to six orbs of electricity that home in on fighters. Because of her unique situation, Giga Mermaid can not be directly attacked and instead defeated by destroying the locks that keep her chained up; because of this different method of defeat, she does not grant a point to the fighter that defeated (freed) her in timed matches.

Metal Face
MetalFace
Metal Face is one of the major antagonists of the first half of Xenoblade Chronicles, and the reason why Shulk begins his journey: Metal Face led an army of Mechon on a raid against the Homs of Colony 9, killing Shulk's childhood friend, Fiora, in the process. Metal Face makes a prominent appearance on the Gaur Plain stage as one of the few stage bosses who has the power to directly influence the stage's layout. While Metal Face's primary means of offence are simple, yet very powerful, claw swipes, he also has the power to collapse the overhang of one side of the stage, which will fall and temporarily destroy all of the platforms beneath it. While Metal Face grants the one who defeats him a point in timed matches, he will also explode once he runs out of health, which will blast away any fighter nearby. Metal Face is one of the few stage bosses to actually speak words to taunt those who oppose him, with a myriad of quotes that he will shout upon appearing, attacking, being damaged, leaving if not KO'd, and being KO'd.

Petey Piranha
Petey Piranha MPSR
Petey Piranha is a recurring boss from the Super Mario series, who first appeared in Super Mario Sunshine. Appearing on the Bianco Hills stage, Petey performs several of his prominent abilities when he appears. In addition to showing off his (rather strange) ability to fly by flapping his arms, Petey primarily attempts to damage fighters by spewing goop at them. The giant Piranha Plant is also capable of manipulating the stage's layout by snapping the rope in the centre of the stage or by caving in one of the towers' top tiers with a giant globule of goop.

Ridley
Ridley SSB4
Ridley is a large purple dragon-like being and the archnemesis of Samus Aran. One of the most recurring characters in the Metroid series, Ridley serves as the leader of the Space Pirates, and contrary to his design, is a being of remarkably high intellect. Ridley serves as the stage boss of Pyrosphere, damaging foes with a number of attacks. Some of Ridley's more-recurring attacks, such as dragging his tail across the ground and attacking with his claws, are used by him when he appears, though there are a large number of other attacks he may perform such as hanging off the side of the stage and spewing fireballs at foes, or crashing down into the centre of the stage. When at low health, Ridley will power himself up by absorbing the liquids in the vats present beneath the stage, increasing his speed and strength significantly. Like most other stage bosses, Ridley will grant the fighter who defeats him a point in timed matches, though he may also ally himself with another fighter should they attack him enough without defeating him.

Ultra Necrozma
800Necrozma-Ultra
Ultra Necrozma is a forme of Necrozma introduced in Pokémon Ultra Sun and Moon who appears on the Ultra Megalopolis stage. Utilizing the light of either Solgaleo or Lunala, Necrozma can harness the power of an Ultranecrozium Z to transform into this powerful forme. Ultra Necrozma has a number of fairly powerful attacks, though its large size makes it easy to hit. Ultra Necrozma's attacks include Photon Geyser (creating large pillars of light that rise up from the ground), Psycho Cut (firing large purple crescent-shaped projectiles that cut through the entire stage horizontally), Prismatic Laser (firing a concentrated white beam aimed at a random fighter), or, when at low health, Light That Burns The Sky (creating a large orb at the top of the screen that damages foes that touches it and also fires a laser down the centre of the stage). Ultra Necrozma grants the fighter that dealt the last hit a point, like most other stage bosses.

My Music

See also: Jake's Super Smash Bros./Music

The My Music system introduced in Super Smash Bros. Brawl returns in Jake's Super Smash Bros. with the same function. This "My Music" feature allows the player to set the frequency that each song in the game is capable of playing on a stage during a match. While, like in previous games, some songs must be unlocked via the collection of CDs and all songs are only capable of playing on a single, pre-determined, stage, players are capable of being more specific with each frequencies and also allow songs to be disabled out-right; in previous titles, setting a song to a 0% likelihood still makes it possible to play during a match, albeit it is very unlikely for it to.

Each stage in the game has a total of 10 music tracks, with four of the songs needing to be unlocked through the collection of CD's. In addition, the menu music can also be changed through this feature; while the menu has its own set of specific music tracks, the player can also import songs that can play on stages into the Menu's My Music selection. Below is a list of the different songs that can exclusively be found in the Menu's My Music selection.

Smash Taunts

By holding down the taunt button for an extended period of time, certain fighters can initiate conversations with other characters from their series of origin on specific stages. These conversations are known as "Smash Taunts", and do not actually affect the battle in any way, making them purely fanservice. Most Smash Taunts will change depending on what fighter(s) the player is fighting against, often having the characters reference the movesets of the player's opponents. The following characters can perform Smash Taunts, once per match unless stated otherwise:

JSSB Character icon - Pit On Reset Bomb Forest, Pit can converse with a number of different characters from Kid Icarus: Uprising, primarily Viridi and Palutena, to get advice from them on how to fight the other characters in the game. This is known as Palutena's Guidance.
JSSB Character icon - Akiho On The Grand Obelisk, Akiho can use her PokeCom to communicate with the other members of the Robot Research Club, primarily Kaito and Frau, to get advice from them on how to fight the other characters in the game. This is known as IRUO. Connection.

Game Modes

Story Mode

JSSB story logo

JSSB Crown of Orchid simple logo is the story mode of Jake's Super Smash Bros., and features the playable cast of the game teaming up to defeat a group of villains. Set within its own fictional world made up of aspects of all of the game's represented series, this story focuses on the villains attempting to retrieve the titular Crown of Orchid which is said to be the sole connection to the forbidden realm of Subspace sealed away long ago.

All-Star Gauntlet

All-Star Gauntlet is a game mode where one or two players can team-up and fight all of the game's playable characters in a challenging gauntlet of battles. Characters are fought in groups of five. After a certain amount of characters are KO'd, the player will be given a limited amount of healing items (which do not replenish each time they appear) or they could continue with the gauntlet by entering a teleporter. The stages on which the gauntlet are played on are random, changing after each of the "checkpoints"; the stages' hazards are enabled on Normal difficulty or higher, though due to there being more than four characters on the screen at once no bosses will appear on stages. All players also only get one stock, though both need to be KO'd before the game is "lost".

The mode is available by default, though unlockable characters will only be added to the line-up once they have been unlocked. Once all playable characters have been unlocked, the player will unlock a character's Memory should they beat all characters and complete the mode.

Fighting order

The order in which fighters are fought is not wholly randomized, though there are four possibilities. Fighters may be fought in order of their debut appearance (either newest-first or oldest-first), grouped by the series they represent in order of the series' first release, or in order by their designated number; which of these orders is used is randomized. In the first two cases, should multiple fighters have made their debut in a single game, they will be fought in a randomized order. As with other modes, the Mii characters are excluded from this mode.
