This article is for Luigi's appearance in Super Smash Bros. Universe. For the other game appearances of the character please see Luigi. Thank You!

Luigi (ルイージ, Ruīji) is a veteran fighter in the game Super Smash Bros. Universe. Unlike his appearances in previous games in the Super Smash Bros series, Luigi has gained a completely new set of special moves that are based off of Luigi's Mansion, and the Mario & Luigi games with the exception of his Super Jump Punch which remains in tact. All of his old special moves however, are now used by Dr. Luigi.



Like the previous titles Super Smash Bros. for Wii U/Nintendo 3DS, Universe features custom movesets, however many of the options are complete changes compared to just modified variations of the standard specials.

  • Down tilt - Luigi crouches, turns around, and kicks his heel out behind him.

  • Up throw - Luigi throws his opponent high into the air with both hands.

Special Moves

  • Neutral special - Iceball: Luigi fires a slow-moving iceball that freezes enemies at higher percents.

Final Smash Poltergust 5000


  • Initiates a variety of poses. In order: he faces the screen with one hand on his waist, the other giving the V sign; he turns to the right slightly, pointing his hands that direction, and what's new in this installment is the look of terror on his face while in this pose. Then, he places his right hand just below his nose, as seen in his artwork for Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga. Then he turns away from the screen, crouching, as if he's sad, just like his Bogey animation in Mario Golf and finally, he faces the screen once more, with both hands on his face, giving a frightened look from the cover of Luigi's Mansion.
  • Luigi has his arms straight down and his body fully erect. The pose causes Luigi to gently fall forward and briefly balance on his belly. He says "pow pow". It is based off of one of his victory poses from Super Smash Bros. Melee.
  • He bashfully kicks the ground like in Mario Party 2 and sighs deeply. If it contacts with an opponent, Luigi can perform a powerful meteor smash.

On-Screen Appearances

  • Luigi jumps out of a Green Warp Pipe, and shouts out, "Let's a Go!"
  • Luigi glides in on a Standard Kart from Mario Kart 8 and shouts out, "Let's a Go!"
