Top icon spirits pc
Spirits are a gameplay element found in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. The souls of beloved characters take on these mysterious forms after the events of the adventure mode, World of Light. Spirits, once rescued, can be assigned to a fighter to boost their fighting capability, but must be fought first.

What Is A Spirit?

Puppet Marth

A Marth Puppet Fighter

That's a tough question. Spirits were once the famous characters we know and love, such as Mimikyu, Waluigi, and Silver. A mysterious entity known as Galeem sent all but Kirby to the World of Light. Fighters were transformed into Trophies, and the newly formed Spirits can do nothing but possess the forms of these Trophies - known as Puppet Fighters - to express themselves and fight

These Puppet Fighters attack the player with traits of the spirit possessing them, mimicking battles the best that the Puppet Fighter can with their moveset. For instance, a battle with Sonic the Hedgehog under the control of the Able Sisters' spirit will have three Sonic the Hedgehogs attack with drills. Each Spirit battle is unique and tailored to that spirit's traits, making these fights fairly unique even for Smash.


The horde of Puppet Fighters seen in World of Light

Once a Spirit's Puppet Fighter has been defeated, the player can fire an attack at the puppet fighter within to free the Spirit trapped within. They are surronded by a shield with a opening, so timing is key. However, if the player hits the shield instead, the part of the shield that was effected will be destroyed and the player can fight the Spirit again to free them. Then, the Spirit is ready to help out the fighters and get back to the real world! Spirits can be equipped to give the fighter unique abilities, boosted stats, items, or anything of the sorts! It's all dependant on the Spirit chosen, and the supporting Spirits.

Only a single Primary Spirit can be equipped at a time, and will be either leans toward being a Attack, Grab, Defense, or Balanced spirit. The triangle of Attack, Grab, and Defense works like this:

  • Attack beats Grab
  • Grab beats Shield
  • Shield beats Attack

Super Smash Bros. Great Fray

Spirits returns in Super Smash Bros. Great Fray, although those appearing in Great Fray are actually duplicates as the original had returned to the real world, allowing the Spirits to return to their physical forms. The duplicates are also easier to manipulate than the original Spirits, as all Spirits can have up to three Support Slots, can have permanent Attack and Defense boost (up to 10000), and have their Rank powered up to increase the power threshold. In addition to all that, those without a effect can be given one by one of the new Master Spirits, Midbus.

The Spirits are also easier to get, as the battles are redone to be able to change in order to avoid getting overwhelmed by four players, especially during Spiritual Crisis, and as a result, the battles become more fair as in those with excessive difficulty had been toned down, but those with Novice and Advanced rank are also made quite more difficult. This is because all non-Legend Spirits can be upgraded into Legend Spirits. In Spirit Board, the minigame required to fully obtain the Spirits is fully removed, and the player can also have access for Pinpoint to get a missing Spirit that is not a Boss.

That said, the duplicates plays a fair bigger role than the original Spirits in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, as in the Story Mode: Spiritual Crisis, they were being used by a known but mysterious Nintendo villain that aims to reset the multiverse by becoming the "Singularity". Eventually, it is revealed to be Andross, but his motivation to do this is yet to be seen.

The evil army didn't collected enough of the duplicated Spirits to allow the mad scientist to become the Singularity yet, but the guardian of the duplicated Spirits, Vizior, aim to get them back and protect them by spreading them out, slowing down the mad monkey's process, and allows Master Hand, Crazy Hand and the fighters to take them away from Andross, but Andross also managed to created a new variants of Spirits; Fusion Spirits, also known as Fusion Bosses.

Fusion Boss Icon (SSBGF) Fusion Spirits Fusion Boss Icon (SSBGF)

Fusion Spirits, also known as Fusion Bosses, are a variant introduced in this game, combining the effects of all Spirits used for the fusion. Because of that, they have a unique Rank called Fusion, with the stars being replaced by the Fusion Boss icon, and the player can modify the Rulesets to ban usage of Fusion Spirits or allow them because of their power being overwhelming, even compared to Legend Spirits.

However, they (and the Spirits that are used for fusions) can be only obtained by defeating the respective Fusion Boss in Revenge Rematch, where they get considerably tougher than they already are.

In fact, Fusion Bosses are very powerful and all have two phases, meaning that they can take much beating while able to rack up damage to the fighters, making them tough tests to the players. That being said, they also have weaknesses, such as weak spots, that allows the players to turn the tide when used against them correctly. It is unknown how many Fusion Bosses would there be.

Fusion Spirits reappears in Average Smash Bros, albeit in a different function and no Fusion Bosses are shown to be existing in this game, unlike in Great Fray, but the fusion concept is expanded upon, allowing new combinations to be used to make a new Spirit, similar to the Summon method. In fact, the results in Average Smash Bros. are much safer than those in Great Fray, as they do not transform into violent or diabolical fusioned character.
