Ninten is a psychic boy from the suburbs of Podunk who makes his debut as a playable fighter in Super Smash Bros. Universal Struggle. He was revealed on July 7th, 2015 along with the entirety of the roster and has yet to recieve a reveal trailer. Ninten may appear similar to Ness and Lucas, but he is quite different. For starters, he uses PSI and PK moves found in EarthBound Beginnings and is heavier than Ness and Lucas, but not heavy enough to be a heavyweight. Ninten is unlocked by either completing Split Classic as either Ness or Lucas or winning 200 matches.
- Neutral Special: PK Beam -
- Side Special: BrainShock - Ninten shoots an electric shockwave forward, which can stun an enemy for a few seconds, giving Ninten time to attack. This move's duration depends on how intelligent the character the move is used on is. Humans (Mario, Ness, Link,etc.) are stunned for longer while animals (mostly Pokémon) are stunned for about 2 seconds. This also has the potential to launch opponents if it is sweetspotted.
- Up Special: Teleport - Ninten teleports to an opponent, and by pressing A upon arrival, he can attack the opponent. There is a 5% chance of failure, in which Ninten will not teleport, but will instead burst into flame for a few seconds.
- Down Special: Hypnosis -
- Final Smash: Eight Melodies - Ninten summons his party from EarthBound Beginnings and they sing the Eight Melodies perfectly to damage opponents' thoughts and even put them to sleep. The aftereffects last only about 15 seconds, so there's not much to worry about.
