|Final Smash||The Mirror of Twilight|
Midna (ミドナ, Midona) appears as a newcomer in Super Smash Bros. V,, revealed after the Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess HD remake trailer at the end of the Nintendo Direct on May 29, 2019.
“Midna is a character from The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess. Midna, a Twili, teams up with the protagonist, Link, to battle a "greater evil" that she alone cannot overcome. In fitting with her dark nature, she has a playfully mischievous sense of humor, and shows a somewhat cynical demeanor during most of the game. She also has some of the most extensive voice acting found in the series, as all of her dialogue is represented by audible (though unintelligible) vocalization. Midna's voice is provided by Akiko Koumoto.
Midna, like all creatures from the Twilight Realm, cannot tolerate light. She hides in Link's shadow when he is in the Light World. The only time she takes her physical form is when Link is in the Twilight. After being exposed to light during the game and later being healed from the resulting injury, Midna is able to take on her physical form even in the Light World, though she still chooses to remain in Link's shadow most of the time, telling him she wants to keep a "low profile."
When asked if Midna would return for a future game or not in an interview with Game Informer, Eiji Aonuma stated: "Because of the way Twilight Princessended, I don’t see her making a reappearance, but who knows? If we hear enough voices for her to come back, how can we not?"”
She is confirmed to have no alternate costume.
Midna is voiced by Akiko Komoto.
Quick and Nimble
Can hover for an unlimited amount of time
Every directional aerial KOs
Some specials leave her vulnerable if shielded or dodged
Midna is a quick and nimble character. She has very quick tilts and her directional aerials are very powerful. Like Peach and some other characters, she can hover in the air. The difference is that she slowly starts to descend on her own after 10 seconds and when she’s attacked out of it, she can’t do it again in the jump. She can also crawl but she can’t wall jump. Her special attacks are pretty good but her side specials leave her very vulnerable if shielded. She is also a relatively lightweight character meaning that she can be KOed pretty early. She is also very floaty and being floaty AND lightweight is not really a good thing.
Overall she is a solid character with many reliable specials and regular attacks. She also does not have trouble killing thanks to her powerful directional aerials. She is floaty and lightweight which are her biggest drawbacks.

The distance can be controlled by holding the input. Also not only does she do damage but she can also reflect projectiles while doing this.|
|Up Special||Particle Warp||Midna shrouds herself in black particles and warps in the direction inputted. She can attack right after warping as there’s no ending lag at all.|
|Alternate 1||Particle Teleportation||A sideways particle warp. Up is the direction Midna is facing. Down is the opposite direction.|

|Alternate 2||Relentless Wave||11%||The ring is much more thicker, appears purple and black and it does high damage and knockback. It also makes do of shields. It leaves Midna a bit open though as the ring disappears a bit slower.|
|Final Smash||The Mirror of Twilight||Midna reverts to her True form (“Twili Midna”) and grabs the opponent nearest to her and sends them into an animation which involves her summoning the Mirror of Twilight and sucking the victim into it, The victim automatically loses that stock. It doesn’t do any damage at all but it’s a guaranteed KO.|
