Super Smash Bros. Discord (formerly known as Super Smash Bros. for The V²) is the seventh Super Smash Bros. game. After Sakurai returned to the series in the sixth installment, it was decided that the next Super Smash Bros. for The V² console would be directed and developed by Toroko. As such, it picks up slightly from Super Smash Bros. Assemble.
A sister game called Super Smash Bros. Spectrum is being developed as well on the Super Smash Bros. Fanon wiki that will have an even less realistic roster and features some shared elements such as characters.
The game was originally known as Super Smash Bros. for The V² and was announced at the Winter Showcase 2015. At the time, this was more of a concept and not something actually in progress, but it showed the intentions of the roster to expand past not just in Nintendo's canonical past, but also in it's fanon history (as shown by the reveal of Cosmetta). It also showed the reveal of Goku, a 4th party character that would be replacing Popeye.
Super Smash Bros. Discord was revealed on 7/14/16 as more or less a "follow-up" from Super Mario Maker Phi in that it was a sequel to one of Toroko's Exotendo works. The new title was revealed as well.
Better customization - Character creation, equipment and custom moves have been retooled for this installment.
Tiered items - Items now have tiers, with Tier 1 Items showing up at the beginning of the match, with Tier 2 and 3 items showing up later in the match. Tiered Items can be turned off and customized.
Omega, Alpha, Zeta Stages - Omega Stages return, being Final Destination versions for every stage. Joining them are Alpha Stages (Battlefield versions of every stage) and Zeta Stages (No hazards).
Custom Music - Load any music from your SD Card (must be a MP3 or WAV file) and play it on any stage! Up to ten custom songs for each stage.
Power Smash - A small meter that appears inside the portrait of a character slowly fills up the more attacks that land. When it is full, the next attack that lands will have double the power. This can be turned off in the options or be customized to have 3x or 4x the power.
X-Cancel - At the cost of some of your Power Smash energy, you can cancel ANY move at any time and execute a different one with the shield button. Some moves take more energy to cancel and can't be cancelled if you don't have enough Power Smash energy.
Smash (also known as VS MODE) is a multiplayer mode that enables players and/or computer players to fight against each other or in a variety of settings. The characters can participate in a variety of battles, including Free-for-alls and team battles. The players can also set the rules for the battle including the amount of time, the amount of stock, the items that can be used, handicaps, and the stage that the battle will take place on. The players can also choose settings for the computer players including computer players' levels. Some of these features, however, have to be unlocked in order for them to be used.
This is considered the main mode of the game and almost everything in the game is based off this mode.
In 8 Player Smash, up to eight players can play a mayhem-filled match on larger stages. In addition to red, blue, yellow, and green indicators for players 1-4, players 5-8 receive new indicators colored orange, cyan, purple, and slate respectively. In Team Battles, an additional team color, the yellow team, can be selected. Additionally, when using the Team Battle function in 8-Player Smash, CPUs will almost always utilize the life stealing technique, even more often than they do in the other modes.

Mario was first created by Shigero Miyamoto as the protagonist for the game Donkey Kong for the Arcade. He would follow this up with more arcade games such as Donkey Kong Jr. and Mario Bros. He's practically Nintendo's biggest character and their mascot and he just recently celebrated his 30th anniversary.
Mario is touted as a balanced character. He can shoot fire from his palm, perform a spin jump to deflect projectiles, preform a jump that will take coins out of the enemy, and use FLUDD, which does some miminal damage but mostly sweeps away the opponent away from him.
The ruler of the Mushroom Kingdom and common target of kidnappings from the king of the Koopas himself, Bowser. Peach often acts as a peacemaker, but that doesn't mean she's above fighting. She has a smart and feisty side to her that she sometimes showcases.
Peach is a tall but light character with a emphasis on keep away attacks, utilizes a frying pan, vegetables, toad and her hips to do so. She has a unique floating ability that gives her a advantage in battle. While her slow movement is somewhat of a problem, most players should find plenty of power in this princess.
Link is the valiant hero of "The Legend of Zelda" series in which they fight against the evil Ganon to recover the Triforce. This incarnation takes after Breath of the Wild, a wildly different Zelda game that has a huge world for you to explore. There are two genders players can choose from: Male or Female. Neither do anything different but they have different models and voices.
Link is a heavyweight character with a strong projectile game, although balanced overall. They can utilize the Hero's Bow to shoot arrows, Gale Boomerang to space out opponents, Spin Attack as a powerful melee tool, and utilize bombs that can now explode whenever Link wants them to. Two variants, one cubical and the other spherical, come out randomly and act as an explosive attack.
Cia was the Guardian of Time who harbored affections towards the Hero of Time, which in turn opened herself up to corruption of her soul by Ganon. She isn't quiet about her desires, having a strong sense of ego and self. She wants to make the world and everything in it hers, especially Link.
Cia mainly uses either far-reaching melee attacks or projectiles using her scepter that doubles as a whip, playing a rather defensive game as she has terrible knockback. Her battle style primarily relies on area coverage and long range over brute force. She can charge some of her attacks to prevent herself from flinching while using them, and can summon Dark Links to battle opponents while she makes a run from them.
Round little Kirby lives on the peaceful Planet Popstar, in Dream Land. He can inhale things with his big mouth, either copying their abilities or spitting them out again. He likes to eat and eat a lot but despite this he's light as a feather!
Kirby is a very light character that has a lot of mid air jumps that allow him to recover fairly well. He can copy moves with his standard special, giving him the neutral move of any character. He can also utilize a hammer, the stone ability, and the cutter ability into his attacks, which gives him some fairly strong melee attacks.
Recognized the world over, Pikachu is an Electric-type Pokémon that stores energy in its cheeks for use in battle. He's so popular that he overshadows his evolution Raichu and a ton of Pokemon look eerily similar to him...
Pikachu is a well-rounded fighter with speedy, powerful electric attacks. He can execute Thunder Jolt as a projectile attack, shoot itself forward and attack with it's head, use a quick melee attack that can be executed multiple times in quick succession, and summon thunder from the sky.
Zero Suit Samus
The head of the Space Pirates on Zebes, Ridley soars through space on wicked wings. Ridley may look like a mindless monster, but he's actually quite intelligent. He's huge for a Smash character, which makes him a huge target. Ridley has a ton of options in both the air and on ground, which makes him pretty deadly.
While a huge target, Ridley has good options for both ground and aerials, although many of his attacks are wide and make him somewhat hard to control for beginners. He has a lot of jumps and a glide (that can be executed by pressing the side button twice). His normal special is a Giant Fireball that can be aimed in several directions. His side special is a Flying Grab that slams the opponent into the ground, digging them in. His down special allows him to gain superarmor, which allows him to take damage but won't be knocked back or flinch, however it goes away after a certain amount of time or amount of hits. His up special is a very hard to use Ridley Glide, which is a very wide flight move that moves more vertical than horizontal.
Pit is the captain of Palutena's royal guard. Despite the wings on his back, Pit needs the Power of Flight from Palutena in order to truly fly. He gets teased by most of the gods, but when they need him most, he's there and ready to serve.
In this game, he's good at both close and ranged combat, and can even deflect projectiles with his Guardian Orbiters move. He can fire shots from the Palutena Bow or get up close with the Upperdash Arm. With the Power of Flight, he fly into the air vertical or nearly horizontal, making it a viable recovery option.

One of the earliest versions of Mario and certainly one of the blockiest. He's a clone of Mario with some different moves and is a bit more of an "expert" Mario. He retains Mario's balanced character traits but has new moves to utilize.
He is touted as a balanced character. He can shoot fire from his palm, perform a spring jump to deflect projectiles, preform a jump that will take coins out of the enemy, and can summon a Bullet Bill blaster to summon a stronger projectile that isn't as fast a fireball.
To unlock, play as Mario 8 times.
MC Adore is the main singer of "Love Posse", a rap group. Her goal is to combine love and rap together. She is seen on the top of the car, either sitting or laying down on top of it. She is actually more of a trio character as you control the rappers and car and alternate between them during attacks.
The trio is a heavy character that tends to stay in place for a lot of it's attacks. When attacking, you control two rappers who need multiple button presses during execution to do more damage while also staying in rhythm. They attack by rapping (which can be built up to do a lot of damage), launching a rocket, using a fork-lift to launch the car into the air, and preforming "Donk-Donk".
Unlock 20 pieces of music.
Returning from Super Smash Bros. Assemble is Character Creation. This is a bit more in depth than the last title, with a variety of limbs being able to be unlocked randomly through the various modes to assemble a character out of parts. The limbs don't really matter for stat purposes and can be flipped around and recolored in a variety of colors.
By applying equipment onto the limbs, players can customize the characters how they want with bonus buffs and nerfs. Likewise, they can apply an assortment of custom moves to the character as well. More information on both equipment and moves are coming soon.

Rhyhorn runs in a straight line, smashing everything in its path. It is not bothered even if it rushes headlong into a block of steel. This Pokémon may feel some pain from the collision the next day, however.
Cutiefly can detect the auras of living things, including people, Pokémon, and plants. They search out flowers by the color and brightness of their auras and then gather their nectar and pollen. They spread dust all over the stage, making it hard to see and it's somewhat toxic too.
The trio is together from birth. It constantly gathers honey from flowers to please Vespiquen. They bite opponents and gain the effects of the items held by the opponents, which can be devastating if they were holding a bat...
This is the second Super Smash Bros. game that Exotoro has made and acts as the bones for The V² Smash Trilogy.
