Super Smash Bros. GR (also referred to as SSBGR or Super Smash Bros. Ghostrealm) is a crossover fighting game in the Super Smash Bros. series developed by Ghostrealm Studios and published by Nintendo. Unlike past games, this title is considered a "spinoff", in that it has its own separate roster chosen by its lead developer and is more or less an author appeal project.

Opening Movie

The game's opening starts with two trophies, one of Mario, one of Fox, being thrown onto the game's Battlefield. As they turn to life, the two characters looks around, before staring intently at each other and charging into a fight.

The next scene depicts Link and Kirby duking it out, before Link is knocked aside by Kirby's hammer. He then looks behind Kirby to see both Zelda and Ganondorf looming before the pink puffball as Ganondorf Warlock Blades Kirby into the screen. Afterwards, the scene cuts to Donkey Kong and Diddy Kong running through a jungle as they stop before Pikachu and Lucario. As DK leaps at Lucario, the latter leaps out of the way before letting loose a full-blast Aura Sphere as Pikachu and Diddy watch in awe.

Afterwards, some gameplay is shown of various characters fighting in-game, before cutting to Samus and the Marine shooting Ridley from afar, with the former narrowly dodging a fireball. As Ridley looms before her, he's then knocked in the head by a purple Pikmin from Olimar, before growling and lunging at the small astronaut. Sonic is then seen running alongside Bowser Jr.'s Koopa Clown Car, before Bowser Jr. tosses a Mechakoopa at Sonic, sending him flying. He then flies over to Bowser and high-fives him as the two stare at a nearby, nervous Princess Peach.

More shots of gameplay are shown before a scene depicting Yoshi eating fruit fed to him by Villager before turning his head to the nearby Pac-Man, who Yoshi and Villager share their fruit with. The scene afterwards shows Pit flying alongside Spyro and Charizard as the Pokémon Trainer below waves at the two of them as Falco's Arwing flies by. What comes next is a shot of Marth and Cloud duking it out, before Marth lets loose a thundering Shield Breaker at Cloud, sending him flying.

More gameplay is shown, this time of some more serious fighting, before the scene switches to the original eight characters from the first Super Smash Bros. standing on a cliff before the rest of the roster, with the camera focusing on Paper Mario, Adeleine, Steve, and Skull Kid in particular, before the original eight turn their attention to the sky, where the game's title screen begins to form.

Gameplay

The core Super Smash Bros. gameplay remains unchanged. Players attack each other to raise their opponents' damage percentages, with the higher the percentage, the farther you're knocked back. Being launched off the stage results in a K.O..

Choosing Physics

For the first time in the Super Smash Bros. series, many different aspects of the game's engine can be adjusted in multiplayer matches, from the game speed, to Special Smash modifiers (these specifically can be enabled for certain players only if you wish), to enabling specific techniques. The following physics aspects can be adjusted.

  • Game Speed (Slowest, Slow, Normal, Fast, Fastest)
  • Airdodging (Melee, Smash 4, Ultimate)
  • Tripping (On or Off)
  • Gliding (On or Off)
  • Dash Dancing Physics (Melee or Brawl)
  • Hitstun Cancelling (On or Off)
  • Edgehogging (On or Off)
  • Disabled Special Moves (Neutral, Side, Down)
    • More than one of these can be activated at once.
  • Size (Normal, Mega, or Mini)
  • Head (None, Flower, Bunny)
    • More than one of these can be activated at once.
  • Body (None, Metal, Clear, Tail, Rocket Belt, Screw, Back Shield)
    • More than one of these can be activated at once.
  • Status (None, Curry, Reflect)
    • More than one of these can be activated at once.
  • Camera (Normal, Fixed, Angled)

Several presets exist as well, and you can save your own:

  • Smash 64 (Slow Game Speed, L-Cancelling enabled, disabled Side Specials)
  • Melee (Fastest Game Speed, Melee airdodging, L-Cancelling enabled, Melee dash dancing)
  • Brawl (Slowest Game Speed, Brawl airdodging, Tripping enabled, Gliding enabled, Hitstun Cancelling enabled)
  • Smash 4 (Normal Game Speed, Hitstun Cancelling enabled)
  • Ultimate (Fast Game Speed, Ultimate airdodging, Hitstun cancelling enabled)
  • Smash GR (Fast Game Speed, L-Cancelling enabled, Gliding enabled, Melee dash dancing)

The Smash GR preset is used in all modes other than the regular Smash mode, and is the "default" preset, so to speak. Other than that, all of these modifiers exist to allow you to choose your perfect Super Smash Bros. gameplay.

Visual Changes

  • A "battle scars" feature now exists, where characters will change in appearance depending on how much damage they've taken. This can range from bruises, to battered weapons, to something as simple as missing ammunition clips.
  • The general artstyle resembles Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, but characters from more cartoonish universes have more solid colors and less detail, while characters from more realistic universes have more detail.
  • Many characters now have more "costume" palette swaps, some of which have to be unlocked first.

Other Changes

  • Landing lag has been reduced even further from Ultimate.
  • The tech window has been enlarged, making for easier teching.
    • This also applies to several returning techniques like wavedashing.
  • When charging a Smash Attack, a meter shows up above your character that indicates how powerful said attack is going to be.
  • On the title screen, the Konami Code (Up Up, Down Down, Left Right Left Right B A Start) can be inputted to activate Competitive Mode. In Competitive Mode, all characters and stages are unlocked, but only Group modes can be chosen. In addition, records won't be saved and matches played won't count towards unlocking anything.
  • Bonuses are back from Smash 64 and Melee, along with the Bonus gamemode.
  • The C-Stick can be used to rotate the camera on the menu once again.
  • A Snapshot Mode now exists akin to Super Mario Odyssey, where you can apply a myriad of filters and adjustments to photos while the game is paused. In addition, the camera is capable of full 360-degree rotations on most stages.
  • The classification of Echo Fighter is now a bit more broad, referring to all clone characters introduced from Smash 4 onwards, unless the changes made are drastic enough to consider them their own separate character, such as different hitboxes or multiple unique moves of their own. At most, Echoes can have special moves other characters have, but no unique special moves of their own. In particular, the following justifications are used for several characters and their clone status:
    • Dr. Mario has a special move Mario doesn't possess as well as vastly different properties and both a different down aerial and Final Smash.
    • Young Link has different hitboxes than Link as well as keeping the Hookshot. He also has a slingshot instead of a bow and can utilize a shield bash.
    • Falco has a myriad of different standard attacks from Fox, has electrical effects in his up special instead of fire, and has a vastly different reflector.
    • Pichu's recoil mechanic alone makes him different enough from Pikachu, not to mention his small stature.
    • Ganondorf has received many, many changes in GR to his special moves to the point where he's only barely a semiclone of Captain Falcon.
    • Roy has multiple unique moves of his own as well as his attacks hitting harder around the hilt of his sword as opposed to the tip.
    • Lucas's moves all have differing properties from Ness's, and he also has a tether grab.
    • Toon Link not only has differing hitboxes from Link, but retains the Hookshot and utilizes the Skull Hammer.
    • Dark Pit has been heavily decloned in GR, both due to him using his staff more and due to changes Pit obtained.

Mario

Mario (SSBVMK)

MarioHeadSSBU
SSB Mario Series

Mr. Video Game himself, Mario has been in a multitude of genres, ranging from platformers, to kart racing, to role-playing games! He's a balanced fighter ideal for newcomers, with no clear advantages or disadvantages. However, he has received a few unique additions now, such as using his hammer in his up smash and forward throw. His footstool jumps can also meteor smash and bury opponents, and his Mario Tornado is now the Star Spin from Super Mario Galaxy.

  • Neutral Special - Fireball: Mario throws a fireball forward.
  • Side Special - Cape: Mario uses his cape to turn around an opponent or reflect an incoming projectile. It will also stall his fall.
  • Up Special - Super Jump Punch: Mario leaps into the air with a massive jumping punch, which will hit twice as it ascends much like Pikachu's Quick Attack.
  • Down Special - F.L.U.D.D.: Mario charges up F.L.U.D.D. before using it to push away an opponent.
  • Final Smash - Mario Finale: Mario lets loose two massive fireballs that circle around each other and deal big damage to anyone they hit.
Mario retains his previous victory theme and entrance animation, but has three new costumes: his sunglasses vendor outfit from Super Mario Sunshine, his shirtless appearance from Super Mario Odyssey, and his tennis outfit from Mario Tennis Aces.

Peach

Peach SSBUltimate

PeachHeadSSBU
SSB Mario Series

The princess of the Mushroom Kingdom and Bowser's usual kidnapping target, Peach is still capable of defending herself. She's a lightweight with a strong air game and excellent pressuring options thanks to her Vegetables, but is quite slow and can have trouble in regards to her ground game. This time however, Peach now has a minor aesthetic change in that her parasol is now Perry from Super Princess Peach.

  • Neutral Special - Toad: Peach pulls out a Toad to defend herself, as a counterattack. If hit, the Toad will spew out spores that damage opponents.
  • Side Special - Peach Bomber: Peach lunges forward with a powerful hip bash, rebounding if the hit lands.
  • Up Special - Perry: Peach leaps into the air with Perry as her parasol, before gliding through the air afterwards.
  • Down Special - Vegetable: Peach plucks a vegetable out of the ground, which can then be thrown. Each vegetable has varying damage, and Peach also has a chance of being able to pluck Bob-ombs, Beam Swords, and even Mr. Saturns!
  • Final Smash - Peach Blossom: Peach performs a dance as enemies onscreen fall asleep, with three giant peaches spawning onstage that heal 20% damage each.
Peach retains her previous victory theme and entrance animation, but now has three new costumes: the Shadow Queen's appearance from Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door, her wedding dress from Super Mario Odyssey, and Princess Bowser.

Bowser

Bowser SSBUltimate

BowserHeadSSBU
SSB Mario Series

The archenemy of Mario, Bowser has been a thorn in his side for years, often kidnapping Peach and wreaking havoc across the Mushroom Kingdom. Bowser is by far the heaviest character in the game, has amazing mobility and range, but is poor defensively.

  • Neutral Special - Fire Breath: Bowser emits a trail of fire from his mouth that's great for racking up damage, but eventually dissipates and needs time to recharge.
  • Side Special - Flying Slam: Bowser dashes forward with a claw swipe that damages faraway enemies. If he makes contact with a target, he'll grab them and hit them with a flying suplex that dishes out big damage and knockback.
  • Up Special - Whirling Fortress: Bowser spins in his shell upwards as he ascends. If the move is used on the ground however, it becomes Spike Ball, which has Bowser curl up into a sphere and roll along the ground. Spike Ball hits harder than Whirling Fortress but only hits once.
  • Down Special - Bowser Bomb: Bowser ground pounds for big damage and knockback, but the move has high ending lag.
  • Final Smash - Firelord Bowser: Bowser transforms into Firelord Bowser from Super Mario Excursion before a reticle appears onscreen. Once an area is picked, Firelord Bowser unleashes a punch from the background that OHKOes those hit.
Bowser retains his previous victory theme and entrance animation, but has three new costumes: his armored suit from Yoshi's Safari, his wedding outfit from Super Mario Odyssey, and Hammer Slam Bowser from Skylanders Superchargers. Dark Bowser from Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story and Blue Bowser from Super Mario Bros.: The Lost Levels also appear as normal palette swaps. Bowser also uses sound clips from the Mario games instead of his previous animalistic noises.

Rosalina

Rosalina & Luma SSBU

RosalinaHeadSSBU
SSB Mario Series

The mother of the Lumas, Rosalina is a spacefaring princess who's crossed paths with Mario numerous times. She's a powerful defensively-oriented character alongside her Luma, but should he be KOed, she's in trouble, not to mention that she has poor endurance.

  • Neutral Special - Luma Shot: Rosalina fires her Luma forward. Tapping the button again brings him back to her.
  • Side Special - Star Bits: The Luma fires three Star Bits forward.
  • Up Special - Launch Star: Rosalina launches upwards via a multicolored Launch Star, which can be angled.
  • Down Special - Gravitational Pull: Rosalina waves her wand to pull nearby items and projectiles towards her. Projectiles pulled in will become hers and thus capable of damaging enemies.
  • Final Smash - Power Star: A Power Star appears in the center of the stage which slowly expands as it fires small stars around itself, and the main star deals big damage to opponents.
Rosalina retains her previous victory theme and entrance animation, but Cosmetta appears as an alternate costume.

Bowser Jr.

BowserJr SSBUltimate

BowserJrHeadSSBU
SSB Mario Series

Bowser's son wants nothing more than to please his father, even if it means taking on Mario. Bowser Jr. is a unique character with many disjointed hitboxes and great aerial game, but suffers in regards to his mobility. However, this time he now uses his paintbrush in a few of his attacks.

  • Neutral Special - Clown Cannon: Bowser Jr. fires a Bullet Bill out of the Junior Clown Car, which will fly forward. The longer the move is charged for, the faster the Bullet Bill will go.
  • Side Special - Clown Kart Dash: The Junior Clown Car gains wheels before dashing forward, dealing big damage on impact.
  • Up Special - Abandon Ship!: Bowser Jr. leaps out of his Junior Clown Car as it explodes, before getting access to a hammer that can dish out major damage as he descends. Bowser Jr. can now also tech after using the move.
  • Down Special - Mechakoopa: A Mechakoopa emerges from the Junior Clown Car, which will explode after some time or upon contact with an opponent.
  • Final Smash - Shadow Mario Paint: Bowser Jr. transforms into Shadow Mario before painting a giant X across the screen. Anyone caught in it will take damage, and the X eventually clears away with a powerful explosion.
Bowser Jr. retains his previous victory theme and entrance animation, but the multicolored Koopa Kids, Boom Boom, and Pom Pom appear as alternate costumes. He also now wears his bandana from Super Mario Sunshine at all times.

Piranha Plant

Piranha Plant SSBU

PiranhaPlantHeadSSBU
SSB Mario Series

Normally seen as a generic enemy, Piranha Plant can make use of a wide array of attacks based on its other variants. It's a versatile lightweight, but lacks durability.

  • Neutral Special - Ptooie: Piranha Plant fires a spiked ball upwards, and can keep it in midair before spitting it in a direction of choice.
  • Side Special - Putrid Piranha: Piranha Plant shoots a poison cloud forward that damages and stuns those stuck within it briefly.
  • Up Special - Para-Piranha: Piranha Plant spins its leaves like a helicopter, covering a large distance while dealing damage.
  • Down Special - Muncher: Piranha Plant throws a Muncher onto the ground that will bite at those who walk into it, unless destroyed.
  • Final Smash - Petey Piranha: Petey Piranha leaps onto the stage, wreaking havoc briefly.
Piranha Plant now has an alternate costume resembling a Piranha Plorp from Mario and Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story, and retains his entrance animation and victory theme from Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.

Paper Mario

PaperMarioSSBH

PaperMarioStock
SSB Mario Series

Sometimes flat characters are influential. Paper Mario is no exception. He's been on many adventures to stop Bowser along with a myriad of villains, and met many different allies along the way. He has a varied arsenal compared to other depictions of the character, and has been to space, across dimensions, and even in arenas of battle! Just don't bring up stickers or paint around him...

In Super Smash Bros. GR, Paper Mario is a lightweight with an unorthodox moveset. Being flat, he can produce strange hitboxes as he attacks, not to mention that his Hammer offers disjointed hitboxes most of the time. Paper Mario's special moves also provide unorthodox methods of attack, such as leaping across the stage or appealing to the Audience. Paper Mario possesses a unique Audience meter that's filled whenever he takes or deals damage, along with being able to be charged up via his Appeal down special, and when full, he can summon one of his partners to aid him in battle. He also possesses great recovery with a combination of both Super Hammer and Carrie.

However, Paper Mario suffers from the usual problems lightweights face: knockback. He's easily pushed around by attacks, and the hitboxes on his own attacks are quite small. Paper Mario also possesses a poor grab game, due to the Pixl Thoreau offering a disjointed grab that has a lot of ending lag, and lacks a proper projectile, though some of his partners remedy the range issue. Last but not least, the Audience meter may prove to be tricky to juggle alongside fighting opponents.

Overall, Paper Mario is an unorthodox lightweight who relies on summoning allies and dishing out damage quickly, but is in trouble when it comes to being knocked around and handling the Audience meter.

  • Neutral Special - Power Bounce: Paper Mario leaps into the air, before jumping towards the nearest target. If the attack hits, Paper Mario hits hard with a stomp, though if the button is mashed you can unleash more stomps. Should the attack not hit anyone, Paper Mario will either hit the ground with a ground-pound, or simply move forwards in the air before entering a fall state.
  • Side Special - Super Hammer: Paper Mario spins his hammer around. This move can be charged up, and will also slow his fall.
  • Up Special - Carrie: The Pixl Carrie spawns and allows Mario to head on top of her and fly for a brief moment of time, similar to Pit's old Wings of Icarus move.
  • Down Special - Appeal: Mario quickly performs a maneuver that gets the audience, including his partners from the first two games, cheering, charging up the Audience meter by a large amount. If the meter's full, he can consume it to summon a partner who will aid him briefly until either he or the partner is KOed.
  • Final Smash - Mega Star: Paper Mario pulls out a Mega Star, before transforming into a giant 8-bit version of himself. From there, he rushes across the stage, damaging and knocking back anyone he hits, before reverting to his previous form.
Paper Mario's victory theme is the battle victory theme from Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door, and his entrance animation depicts him "unfolding".

Geno

72 - Geno

GenoHeadSSBU
SSB Mario Series

Sent by a higher authority to defeat the Smithy Gang, the warrior from Star Road known as Geno joined Mario to do exactly that. With an arm cannon and the powers of the stars themselves, Geno proved to be a powerful ally.

In Super Smash Bros. GR, Geno is a character with a moveset revolving around hyperaggressive play. His attacks are often projectile-based, and he can take advantage of this powerful range through an excellent grab game. Geno hits quickly and hard, and can easily follow up on attacks. His general movement speed as a whole is great both on the ground and in the air. He also benefits from a Timed Hits mechanic where if he presses a specific button at the right time after landing an attack, he'll utilize another quick attack to deal extra damage.

However, Geno's biggest weakness is his defensive game. His dodges and rolls are quite slow and offer less intangibility, making it hard to avoid attacks. Geno also suffers from poor recovery, with Geno Boost not covering that much distance.

To sum things up, Geno is a very aggressive character that can dish out damage quickly and KO enemies, but is a glass cannon of sorts and can easily be punished should he make a mistake.

  • Neutral Special - Geno Beam: Geno fires a large beam forward for heavy damage.
  • Side Special - Geno Whirl: Geno throws a disc of light forward that pierces through enemies.
  • Up Special - Geno Boost: Geno ascends upwards a distance, surrounded by light energy.
  • Down Special - Geno Blast: After the move is charged up for the desired amount, Geno unleashes massive pillars of light next to him on both sides. The longer the move is charged for, the larger and more dangerous they'll be.
  • Final Smash - Geno Flash: Geno creates a giant ball of energy before throwing it onto the stage, rapidly causing a large explosion that resembles a sun and damages anyone in its way. However, the sun will eventually implode on itself and damage anyone caught in the implosion.
Geno's entrance animation has a star enter his body on the ground and his victory theme is that of a battle being won in Super Mario RPG.

Donkey Kong

Donkey Kong (Ultimate)

DonkeyKongHeadSSBU
SSB Donkey Kong Series

The king of the jungle himself, Donkey Kong used to clash with Mario before forging his own path, taking on the Kremlings, Tikis, and Snowmads. Donkey Kong is among the heaviest characters in the game, but is surprisingly nimble and can dish out damage quickly, albeit at the cost of poor vertical recovery and being a large target for attacks.

  • Neutral Special - Giant Punch: Donkey Kong lets loose a giant punch that can be charged up.
  • Side Special - Headbutt: Donkey Kong performs a headbutt that can bury grounded foes and meteor smash airborne foes.
  • Up Special - Spinning Kong: Donkey Kong spins around with his arms outstretched. Good for horizontal recovery, but covers little vertical distance.
  • Down Special - Hand Slap: Donkey Kong slaps the ground with his bare hands, sending nearby enemies skyward and meteor smashing airborne foes.
  • Final Smash - Jungle Beat: Donkey Kong lets loose a gargantuan punch. If it hits anyone, they're bombarded with a flurry of punches followed by a finishing uppercut that dishes out major knockback and damage.
Donkey Kong retains his previous victory theme and entrance animation, but now has alternate costumes resembling his appearances in Skylanders Superchargers, Mario Strikers Charged, and the original Donkey Kong. He also now uses sound clips from his own games instead of generic gorilla noises.

Diddy Kong

DiddyKong SSBUltimate

DiddyKongHeadSSBU
SSB Donkey Kong Series

Donkey Kong's sidekick, Diddy Kong is a powerful Kong who uses his Peanut Popgun and Rocketbarrel Jetpack to fight foes, and has even been on his fair share of adventures. Diddy Kong is a lightweight with a powerful combo game and mobility, but a poor aerial game.

  • Neutral Special - Peanut Popgun: Diddy shoots a peanut from his Peanut Popgun. If the move is charged up for too long, the gun explodes, damaging those around him.
  • Side Special - Monkey Flip: Diddy leaps a short distance, grabbing onto anyone he hits and hitting them repeatedly. Pressing the button mid-leap causes Diddy to kick instead.
  • Up Special - Rocketbarrel Boost: Diddy hovers briefly with his Rocketbarrel Jetpack before travelling in the direction the player desires, dealing big damage on impact. Being hit mid-flight renders Diddy helpless.
  • Down Special - Banana Peel: Diddy throws a banana peel behind him, which damages and trips opponents it hits.
  • Final Smash - Rocketbarrel Blitz: Diddy flies up into the air before letting loose a flurry of peanuts from his popguns, dishing out massive damage.
Diddy Kong retains his previous victory theme and entrance animation, but now uses actual voice clips reminiscent of his home games instead of generic chimpanzee noises.
Linkultimate

LinkHeadSSBU
SSB The Legend of Zelda Series

Hyrule's chosen hero, this specific incarnation of Link is themed around The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. He's a heavyweight with a great projectile game and disjointed range thanks to the Master Sword, but lacks mobility. However, Link now has access to a bubble shield resembling the Daruk's Protection ability from Breath of the Wild, and can also wall cling and wall jump now.

  • Neutral Special - Traveler's Bow: Link fires an arrow forward. Arrows that hit the ground can be picked up, and then shot from the Bow again for more damage.
  • Side Special - Boomerang: Link throws a boomerang forward that comes back to him, hitting opponents both ways.
  • Up Special - Spin Attack: Link spins around himself with the Master Sword. In the air, he will ascend this way.
  • Down Special - Remote Bomb: Link creates a Remote Bomb via the Sheikah Slate, which he can then throw. Using the move again will detonate the bomb.
  • Final Smash - Ancient Bow and Arrow: Link fires an Ancient Arrow forward, dealing massive damage and knockback to those in his line of sight.
Link retains his previous victory theme and entrance animation, but now has alternate costumes resembling his shirtless appearance in Breath of the Wild, his outfit from Ocarina of Time, and his appearance in Hyrule Warriors.

Zelda

Zeldaultimate

ZeldaHeadSSBU
SSB The Legend of Zelda Series

Hyrule's princess has had many incarnations, and wielded the Triforce of Wisdom. This incarnation of her is based on The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds. Zelda possesses excellent damage racking power as well as an array of KO options, but is slow and has trouble enduring attacks. However, this time the positioning of most of her specials has been adjusted, making them more in line with other characters.

  • Neutral Special - Din's Fire: Zelda shoots a fireball forward that explodes as soon as you let go of the button.
  • Side Special - Phantom Slash: A Phantom forms in front of Zelda before charging forward, slashing anyone in its way.
  • Up Special - Farore's Wind: Zelda teleports and reappears in the direction the control stick is tilted in.
  • Down Special - Nayru's Love: Zelda creates a crystal barrier around herself that damages nearby opponents and reflects projectiles.
  • Final Smash - Triforce of Wisdom: The Triforce of Wisdom sucks in an enemy as they take damage. If they are at 100% or higher by the end of the Final Smash, they're instantly KOed.
Zelda retains her previous victory theme and entrance animation, but now has alternate costumes resembling her designs in Twilight Princess, Breath of the Wild, and Hyrule Warriors, along with her black-haired palette swap now fully resembling Hilda from A Link Between Worlds.

Sheik

Sheik SSBUltimate

SheikHeadSSBU
SSB The Legend of Zelda Series

Zelda took on the alter ego of Sheik when Ganondorf obtained the Triforce of Power. Sheik is a nimble fighter with quick attacks and great KO power, but has poor endurance.

  • Neutral Special - Needle Storm: Sheik stores six needles that can either be thrown right away or stored for later.
  • Side Special - Burst Grenade: Sheik throws a grenade linked to a chain forward, which explodes a few seconds later. If attacked during the initial animation, the grenade falls to the ground and can be picked up and thrown.
  • Up Special - Vanish: Sheik disappears in a Deku Nut-formed explosion before reappearing in a direction of the player's choice.
  • Down Special - Bouncing Fish: Sheik leaps backwards in an attempt to kick an opponent.
  • Final Smash - Sheikah Strike: Sheik lashes out as the Sheikah symbol appears onscreen. Should she hit anyone, they're slashes repeatedly before being finished off with a strong blow.
Sheik retains her previous victory theme and entrance animation, but now has alternate costumes resembling her appearance in Hyrule Warriors, along with Impa appearing as one with her design from the aforementioned game.

Ganondorf

Ganondorf SSBUltimate

GanondorfHeadSSBU
SSB The Legend of Zelda Series

The Great King of Evil and the wielder of the Triforce of Power, Ganondorf is perpetually destined to always face Link and Zelda in battle. He's a heavyweight with immense power and attack speed, but is notoriously slow mobility-wise. Yet, Ganondorf has received some of the largest changes out of any veteran, with the most notable being his use of Calamity Ganon's energies from The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild instead of the purple ones from before, and the receiving of new moves that allow him to no longer stand as a Captain Falcon clone, leaving him on the line between semiclone and original fighter.

  • Neutral Special - Warlock Blade: Ganondorf lets loose a powerful sword stab with massive damage and knockback. If the button is held down, a wave of energy emerges from the sword, granting Ganondorf a projectile, but reducing the power of the main sword thrust.
  • Side Special - Flame Choke: Ganondorf lunges forward with dark energy. If he grabs an opponent during the move, they're slammed down to the ground and buried briefly.
  • Up Special - Dark Dive: Ganondorf leaps upward, causing an explosion if he collides with an opponent, and an uppercut if the initial grab fails.
  • Down Special - Dead Man's Volley: Ganondorf floats above the ground briefly, damaging adjacent opponents and reflecting projectiles.
  • Final Smash - Demon King Ganon: Ganondorf transforms into the bestial monster Ganon, slams his swords down on the ground to trap opponents, and then lunges forward for massive damage and knockback.
Ganondorf retains his previous victory theme and entrance animation, but now has alternate costumes resembling his appearances in Twilight Princess and Hyrule Warriors, along with another costume resembling Demise from Skyward Sword.

Toon Link

ToonLink SSBUltimate

ToonLinkHeadSSBU
SSB The Legend of Zelda Series

The Hero of Winds set out to stop Ganondorf when his sister was kidnapped, and would later fight all sorts of villains, with his ancestors even battling the evil Vaati. Toon Link is the most "traditional" of the three Links due to the others receiving major changes, but is still a versatile lightweight. He does however use the Skull Hammer in his forward smash and up special, and gains the Magic Shield for his shield, which is immune to shield poking.

  • Neutral Special - Hero's Bow: Toon Link fires an arrow forward.
  • Side Special - Boomerang: Toon Link throws a boomerang forward that comes back to him, hitting opponents both ways. Toon Link's boomerang is the fastest of all three Links' boomerangs.
  • Up Special - Spin Attack: Toon Link spins around himself with the Skull Hammer. In the air, he will ascend this way.
  • Down Special - Bomb: Toon Link grabs a bomb from his bag, which will eventually explode. The bomb can be thrown like an item, or kept on Toon Link and used to recover.
  • Final Smash - Triforce Slash: Toon Link lets loose a single strike that, if it connects, traps opponents in a Triforce-shaped object as Toon Link slashes at them, before finishing with a powerful blow.
Toon Link retains his previous victory theme and entrance animation.

Skull Kid

Skull Kid Ocarina (Hyrule Warriors)

SkullKidHeadSSBU
SSB The Legend of Zelda Series

Exiled from Termina for his tricks, Skull Kid would steal Majora's Mask from the Happy Mask Salesman. However, the mask would take control of him, forcing him to commit misdeeds and nearly destroy the whole of Termina via throwing down the Moon. Yet, the Hero of Time himself came and defeated Majora's Mask, and the two would become good friends.

In Super Smash Bros. GR, Skull Kid is a middleweight with a varied moveset that has all sorts of utility, drawing from both The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask and his appearance in Hyrule Warriors. In general however, Skull Kid boasts impressive disjointed range due to his use of the fairies Tatl and Tael in several of his attacks, allowing him to stay safe as he bombards enemies with attacks. Skull Kid's Dark Orb special is also useful due to its tendency to draw opponents to him, providing him with a method of approaching enemies. Skull Kid's aerials are also quite deadly: they're very fast, and very powerful.

However, Skull Kid's biggest weakness is his poor recovery. His up special, Song of Soaring, barely covers any distance, and Tentacle Attack, while producing a bit of momentum, leaves him open due to its lag. Skull Kid's also a bit floaty, and thus easily knocked around by attacks.

Overall, Skull Kid is capable of making use of a multitude of powerful tools to eliminate foes, but suffers in regards to recovery.

  • Neutral Special - Dark Orb: Skull Kid forms a massive ball of energy in the air as part of the move's charging animation, which will draw in opponents. The button can then be released to slam it onto the ground to deal damage on impact. If they hit an airborne enemy, the move deals double damage and knockback.
  • Side Special - Fairy Strikes: Skull Kid calls for Tatl and Tael to attack with him in a flurry of strikes forward. These strikes are quick and dish out a fair bit of knockback.
  • Up Special - Song of Soaring: Skull Kid plays the Song of Soaring on his Ocarina, teleporting a short distance into the sky.
  • Down Special - Tentacle Attack: Majora's Mask sprouts tentacles which try to grab an enemy before them. If the tentacle connects, they're slammed behind Skull Kid, and in the air, they're launched upwards instead.
  • Final Smash - Majora's Wrath: Majora's Mask fires off a laser beam in an arc around Skull Kid, sending anyone it hits to a room resembling the one seen in the final boss fight of The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask. From there, the mask transforms into Majora's Wrath and unleashes a flurry of attacks at the opponents, culminating in an energy blast that dishes out vicious damage and knockback.
Skull Kid has an alternate costume resembling his appearance in The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess, his entrance animation has him teleporting into battle, and his victory theme is that of obtaining a mask in The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask.

Samus

Samus SSBUltimate

SamusHeadSSBU
SSB Metroid Series

Samus is a bounty hunter well known for having exterminated the Metroid species and tackled the spread of Phazon. She's a character who excels at zoning with her various projectiles, and can also KO with immense power. However, Samus is heavily reliant on spacing and is quite floaty. Samus does have one major change however: her forward smash is now the melee attack from Metroid: Samus Returns.

  • Neutral Special - Charge Shot: Samus charges up a powerful shot before releasing it.
  • Side Special - Missile: Samus fires a Missile forward, which homes in on opponents, but if the stick is tapped like a smash attack, the faster, stronger Super Missile is shot instead, which only moves straight. Both missile types have been buffed to move faster and hit harder however.
  • Up Special - Screw Attack: Samus leaps upwards in a somersault while discharging energy.
  • Down Special - Bomb: Samus goes into her Morph Ball form and drops a Bomb, which eventually explodes.
  • Final Smash - Zero Laser: Samus fires a massive laser beam across the stage.
Samus retains her previous victory theme and entrance animation, but now has alternate costumes resembling her suits from the original Metroid and Metroid: Samus Returns, along with the Fusion Suit from Metroid Fusion.

Ridley

Ridley SSBUltimate

RidleyHeadSSBU
SSB Metroid Series

The perennial enemy of Samus Aran, Ridley is a leading figure among the Space Pirates. He's a heavyweight who's surprisingly nimble and boasts an impressive aerial game, but, fittingly enough, is a bit too big and thus an easy target.

  • Neutral Special - Fireballs: Ridley shoots a singular fireball from his mouth, but if the move is charged up enough, multiple will be shot. Yet, the move can backfire if it's charged up too much, damaging Ridley and those around him.
  • Side Special - Dragging Strike: Ridley lunges forward, dragging anyone he hits along the ground before throwing them forwards.
  • Up Special - Reckless Ascent: Ridley pauses briefly before flying upwards. The move can be angled to a degree and hits enemies fairly hard.
  • Down Special - Tail Strike: Ridley pauses before letting loose a sudden tail stab. If the tip hits, the opponent takes even more damage and is stunned briefly.
  • Final Smash - Plasma Beam: Ridley rushes forward, knocking anyone he hits onto Samus's gunship in a cutscene. He then fires a beam of plasma at the ship, dealing massive damage and knockback.
Ridley retains his previous victory theme and entrance animation, but now has an alternate costume resembling Proteus Ridley from Metroid: Samus Returns.

Marine

MarineFedForce

SSB Metroid Series

Sometimes Samus isn't the only one to battle the Space Pirates, which is where the Federation Force and their Marines come in. As part of Operation Golem, they waged war against the Space Pirates across multiple worlds, and even saved Samus at one point. Plus they occasionally like to kick back and relax with a game of Blast Ball.

In Super Smash Bros. GR, the Marine is a heavyweight with a focus on projectiles and ranged damage. Many of their standard attacks have a projectile effect that offers the Marine disjointed hitboxes. However, the Marine also benefits from overall solid KO power due to being a heavyweight, as well as a resistance to being launched as a whole. The Proximity Bomb also gives them a small bit of stage control, and their other attacks help them lure opponents into the bomb.

However, the Marine has several flaws. His recovery for one isn't that impressive, as it leaves him vulnerable and doesn't cover much horizontal distance. His general mobility as a whole is also not that good, with slow ground and air speeds, and several of his ground attacks have a bit of end lag on them.

Overall, the Marine is a powerful heavyweight with good range and power, but has trouble navigating the stage and thus has to play more defensively, relying on punishing enemy mistakes.

  • Neutral Special - Flame Shot: The Marine fires a round of lava shots that damages all enemies in an arc in front of them.
  • Side Special - Proximity Bomb: The Marine fires a bomb onto the ground that explodes should an enemy near it, burying them. In the air, it simply explodes on contact and deals damage.
  • Up Special - Eject: The Marine fires a missile beneath them that explodes as they fly out of their suit. While vulnerable in this state, they can shoot small missiles at enemies.
  • Down Special - Blast Ball: The Marine fires a ball forward that can dish out heavy knockback to enemies.
  • Final Smash - Hyper Mode: The Marine fires a flurry of shots around the stage that dish out heavy damage and knockback.
The other Marine colors from Metroid Prime: Federation Force are present as alternate costumes, as are the paint jobs from said game. The Marine's victory theme is that of a Blast Ball goal in their game, and their entrance animation has them leaping onto the battlefield.

Yoshi

Yoshi SSBUltimate

YoshiHeadSSBU
SSB Yoshi Series

Mario's companion from time to time, Yoshi's also had his own share of adventures. A heavyweight who's surprisingly nimble, Yoshi excels in having lots of utility with his moveset, not to mention having a unique shield, but has a poor defensive game on the ground and poor vertical recovery outside of his double jump. However, Yoshi's grab game has been improved with his tongue coming out faster, and it can also function as a tether grab when used in the air.

  • Neutral Special - Egg Lay: Yoshi swallows an opponent and lays them as an egg. While trapped, opponents take less damage and need to button mash to escape, but are completely immobile and vulnerable to Yoshi.
  • Side Special - Egg Roll: Yoshi gets into an egg before being able to roll across the stage, either to hit opponents or retreat from them.
  • Up Special - Egg Throw: Yoshi throws an egg in an arc, which can also bounce on the ground.
  • Down Special - Yoshi Bomb: Yoshi ground pounds, producing stars on both sides of his landing location.
  • Final Smash - Poochy Attack: Yoshi lets loose his tongue a massive distance, trapping anyone it hits. From there, Poochy Pups strike them, followed by Poochy himself, who deals massive damage and knockback.
Yoshi retains his previous victory theme and entrance animation, but now has alternate costumes resembling Yarn Yoshi from Yoshi's Woolly World, Boshi from Super Mario RPG, and Yoshi's outfit from Mario Strikers Charged.

Fox

Fox SSBUltimate

FoxHeadSSBU
SSB Star Fox Series

Fox McCloud led the Star Fox team after the death of his father James, contending with villains like Andross, the Star Wolf team, and the Aparoids. Fox is a nimble lightweight who can easily run around the stage and make use of tools like his Blaster and Reflector. However, he's easy to knock around and falls quickly.

  • Neutral Special - Blaster: Fox fires a laser forward. The button can be mashed to continue firing lasers rapidly, but they don't stun enemies and lose power the farther they travel.
  • Side Special - Fox Illusion: Fox darts forward at blinding speed, leaving behind afterimages.
  • Up Special - Fire Fox: Fox lights himself on fire before flying in a chosen direction.
  • Down Special - Reflector: Fox activates a reflector around himself, with the initial activation dealing damage. For as long as the button is held, incoming projectiles will be deflected.

FalcoHeadSSBU
SSB Star Fox Series

Falco used to lead a galactic gang before joining up with Fox, and acts as one of the Star Fox team's ace pilots. While a semi-clone of Fox in past titles, Falco's been overhauled and further decloned with a brand-new set of special moves that emphasize stage control and spacing, and a new up smash that uses the Fireburst Pod from Star Fox: Assault.

  • Neutral Special - Blaster: Falco fires a laser forward. While Falco's lasers move slower than Fox's, they deal more damage and can also be charged up akin to an Arwing's lasers, moving even slower, but dishing out major damage on impact.
  • Side Special - Stealth Mines: Falco places a set of stealth mines before him, which will detonate if he uses the move again or if an enemy comes in contact with them.
  • Up Special - Thunder Bird: Falco surrounds himself with electricity before flying in a chosen direction. Unlike Fire Fox, it deals greater knockback and damage but only hits once, and can also reflect projectiles it collides with.
  • Down Special - Homing Launcher: Falco props up a Homing Launcher from Star Fox: Assault before firing a rocket out of it, which will fly towards a nearby enemy.
  • Final Smash - Arwing Strike: Falco calls for the rest of his team to fly in front of him in Arwings in an unorthodox ship formation, before throwing them into space. From there, they let loose a barrage of lasers that dish out big damage and knockback.
Falco retains his previous victory theme and entrance animation, but now has alternate costumes resembling his outfit from Star Fox Adventures and his Star Fox: Assault appearance.

Kirby

KirbyHeadSSBU
SSB Kirby Series

The hero of Planet Popstar, Kirby has always been there to fight evil, using Copy Abilities to his advantage. Kirby can copy enemy neutral specials with Inhale on top of possessing incredible combo capabilities, but is easily knocked around by attacks and has poor mobility.

  • Neutral Special - Inhale: Kirby opens up his mouth by a little bit, before it opens up even more a few seconds later. Inhaled enemies can either be spat out as star-shaped projectiles or have Copy Abilities gained from them, which allow Kirby to use their neutral special.
  • Side Special - Hammer Flip: Kirby charges up a hammer before striking upwards with it. The move has excellent damage and KO power.
  • Up Special - Final Cutter: Kirby ascends upwards with a blade of sorts, before descending and unleashing a shockwave before him.

MetaKnightHeadSSBU
SSB Kirby Series

The enigmatic owner of the Halberd, Meta Knight has been both a friend and a foe to Kirby, and has a sense of honor about him. Meta Knight is a lightweight who can maneuver the stage extremely quickly and rack up damage at incredible rates, but has poor endurance and cannot deal with projectiles that effectively.

  • Side Special - Drill Rush: Meta Knight spins forward like a drill, hitting multiple times.
  • Up Special - Shuttle Loop: Meta Knight performs two quick sword strikes as he ascends upwards, before breaking into a glide.

KingDededeHeadSSBU
SSB Kirby Series

The king of Dream Land, King Dedede is a greedy king who often steals food, occasionally clashing with Kirby in the process. He's a heavyweight with incredible endurance and recovery, but most of his moves pay for their power with their slow attack speed.

  • Neutral Special - Inhale: King Dedede inhales an enemy, before spitting them out as a star-shaped projectile.
  • Side Special - Waddle Dee Toss: King Dedede throws a Waddle Dee forward, who will walk along the stage and absorb projectile attacks while attempting to hit enemies. If the stick is pressed akin to a smash attack, a Gordo will be thrown instead, which hits once for big damage and knockback.

  • Side Special - Skull Bash: Pikachu lunges forward with a massive headbutt, which can cover a lot of horizontal distance if charged up enough.

Known to some as Red, or even Ash Ketchum, the Pokémon Trainer is a powerful foe, using Charizard, Ivysaur, and Squirtle in tandem with each other. Pokémon Trainer merely stands in the back as he uses one of these three Pokémon to fight, and can switch between them via shielding or airdodging and pressing the special move button at the same time. Each Pokémon has its own moveset, and there's no penalty for sticking to one.

Pokémon Trainer retains his previous entrance animation, but its victory theme is now that of a Trainer battle being won in Pokémon FireRed and LeafGreen.
Charizard
Charizard SSBUltimate

CharizardHeadSSBU
SSB Pokémon Series

One of the Pokémon Trainer's three Pokémon, Charizard is by far the heaviest and the hardest-hitting, though it possesses excellent mobility. It's great for when you need to finish off an opponent.

  • Neutral Special - Fire Blast: Charizard shoots a singular fireball through the air.
  • Side Special - Flare Blitz: Charizard cloaks itself in flames before dashing forward, causing big damage to whoever it hits. However, Charizard takes recoil damage from using this move!

Ivysaur
Ivysaur SSBUltimate

IvysaurHeadSSBU
SSB Pokémon Series

Ivysaur serves as the Pokémon Trainer's Grass-type. The most balanced of the three, it's great for all sorts of situations, and great for the middle stages of the battle, much like how it's the middle stage of its evolutionary line. In particular, it has the best range out of any of Pokémon Trainer's Pokémon, with disjointed hitboxes on many attacks.

  • Neutral Special - Bullet Seed: Ivysaur fires a barrage of seeds above it, trapping enemies who are right next to or above it.
  • Side Special - Razor Leaf: Ivysaur fires a large leaf forward that can hit foes multiple times.
  • Up Special - Vine Whip: Ivysaur uses the seed on its back to propel itself into the air, before throwing a vine upwards. Should it hit a ledge, Ivysaur will be dragged up to it. Hitting an opponent with the move will also allow it to be used again without incurring helplessness.

SSB Pokémon Series

The smallest of Pokémon Trainer's Pokémon and the team's Water-type, Squirtle is by far the most nimble of the three.

Lucario

Lucario SSBUltimate

LucarioHeadSSBU
SSB Pokémon Series

The Aura Pokémon, Lucario is a master of its powers. It possesses an Aura mechanic that increases the power of its moves as it takes damage, making late-game fighting more of a high risk, high reward thing.

  • Neutral Special - Aura Sphere: Lucario charges a sphere of Aura energy before firing it forward.
  • Side Special - Force Palm: Lucario fires a stream of Aura forward, and can also grab opponents in front of it before striking them with a point-blank palm thrust.
  • Up Special - Extreme Speed: Lucario propels itself in any direction using Aura, with a hitbox at the end of the animation.

  • Neutral Special - Darkest Lariat: Incineroar spins around with its arms outstretched.

Golurk

Golurkpng

Golurk
SSB Pokémon Series

Golurk, a Ghost/Ground-type Pokémon, was said to have been built as a laborer. Yet, despite its size, this giant can fly at mach speeds, and is a formidable force to be reckoned with. Trainers like the former king of Kalos, AZ, know the advantages of using a Golurk.

In Super Smash Bros. GR, Golurk is an odd character: an aerial heavyweight. In the air, Golurk has unprecedented mobility in the air due to a combination of being able to glide and having great air speed, and his aerial attacks are fast and powerful. With long-reaching special moves, Golurk has no trouble at all recovering from being knocked away from the stage. Golurk also has a hefty grab game, with many of his grabs sending opponents into the air to follow up with aerial combos.

However, Golurk, being a heavyweight, has large hitboxes, making him an easy target. He also suffers in regards to a poor ground game, thus forcing him to play in the air. On the ground, Golurk's attacks are slow, but they still pack a punch, though this is also affected by his poor walking and running speeds. This forces him to rely on grabs to get opponents where he wants them. The lack of a proper projectile, as well as a means of dealing with projectiles, also hinders Golurk.

Overall, Golurk is capable of dominating the air, but can be easily exploited on the ground. He acts as the inverse of the archetype shared by characters like Little Mac.

  • Neutral Special - Rock Smash: Golurk's neutral special consists of him punching a rock apart, flinging the shards around much like Charizard's old move. Up close, it hits quite hard.
  • Side Special - Shadow Punch: Golurk activates his thrusters and lunges forward for a punch in his side special. The attack can be angled in any direction as well.
  • Up Special - Zen Headbutt: In his up special, Golurk soars a massive distance head-first, dealing vicious knockback upon hitting. The move then leads into a glide, allowing Golurk to set up aerial combos.
  • Down Special - Earth Power: Golurk adjusts his rocket-like arms to shoot out blasts of flame, with a different effect depending on whether he's on the ground or in the air for his down special:
    • On the ground, Golurk smashes the ground before him, letting loose a flurry of explosions on the ground. If they hit an opponent, they're buried.
    • In the air, Golurk unleashes blasts of seismic energy all around himself, slowing his descent and damaging enemies he's in contact with, while also pushing them away from him in the direction of the thruster. Golurk can also angle himself during this time, allowing him to also prepare to use another special move.
  • Final Smash - Tectonic Rage: Golurk smashes the ground around him, trapping opponents. From there, he flies into the air, fires off a flurry of rocks, and then smashes into the ground with a Zen Headbutt to send his enemies flying.
Golurk's entrance animation consists of him flying onto the stage, and his victory music is shared with the other Pokémon characters.

  • Side Special - PK Fire: Lucas shoots a small lightning bolt-shaped projectile forward, which creates a miniature pillar of fire should it hit an opponent.

  • Final Smash - Iceberg: A massive iceberg emerges from the stage, which will freeze enemies that make contact with it while dealing big damage and knockback.

MarthHeadSSBU
SSB Fire Emblem Series

The first protagonist of the Fire Emblem series, Marth led Altea to greatness across multiple battlefields. In Super Smash Bros. GR, he retains his great mobility and tipper properties on his sword, the Falchion, but loses out in terms of spacing and his attacks hitting the sourspot, not to mention poor recovery.

  • Side Special - Dancing Blade: Marth performs a sequence of sword slashes forward, with each slash capable of being altered via directional inputs to hit lower or higher.
  • Up Special - Dolphin Slash: Marth performs a sword slash upwards as he ascends, with a large sweetspot at the tip.

  • Final Smash - Critical Hit: Marth raises the Falchion high into the air before lunging forward, attacking the first person he hits with immense damage and knockback, enough to one-hit KO.
Marth retains his previous victory theme and on-screen appearance, but does get a new alternate costume in the form of his outfit from the first Fire Emblem title.

Roy

Roy SSBUltimate

RoyHeadSSBU
SSB Fire Emblem Series

A fifteen year-old who was forced to take control of Pherae's army, Roy is a proud fighter who doesn't hesitate to help out others and seeks nothing more than peace. He acts as a semiclone of Marth, but is differentiated in that his sword, the Sword of Seals, is stronger around the hilt rather than the tip. In addition, his moves as a whole are slower, but hit far harder.

  • Neutral Special - Flare Blade: Roy rears back and ignites the blade of the Sword of Seals before plunging it into the ground viciously. When fully charged, it's capable of one-hit KOing, but deals 10% recoil damage.
  • Side Special - Double-Edge Dance: Roy performs a sequence of sword swings forward, with each swing capable of being altered via directional inputs to hit lower or higher.
  • Up Special - Blazer: Roy leaps into the air as he holds the Sword of Seals with a reverse grip as it ignites, hitting enemies multiple times as he ascends.
  • Down Special - Counter: Roy assumes a readying stance and retaliates against incoming attacks. The more powerful the incoming attack, the stronger Roy hits.
  • Final Smash - Critical Hit: Roy performs a circular swing with the Sword of Seals before igniting its blade and performing a two-handed, downward slash that creates a powerful explosion.
Roy now has an alternate costume resembling his appearance in Fire Emblem Awakening, and he retains his previous victory theme and on-screen appearance.

Ike

Ike SSBUltimate

IkeHeadSSBU
SSB Fire Emblem Series

Ike, leader of the Greil Mercenaries, became known as the "Radiant Hero" due to his efforts to restore the fallen nation of Crimea and fighting in the Mad King's War. He's a heavyweight with slow, hard-hitting attacks and impressive approach options, but this time around Ike's attacks are a bit faster.

  • Neutral Special - Eruption: Ike lifts his sword into the air in front of himself before plunging it into the ground and causing an explosion. Has super armor at full charge, but deals 10% recoil damage.
  • Side Special - Quick Draw: Ike kneels down on one knee before rushing forward with his sword. If it doesn't hit an opponent, the move has high ending lag and will leave Ike helpless in the air.
  • Up Special - Aether: Ike throws his sword into the air before leaping up to it and slamming down onto the ground. A powerful recovery move if used correctly, but can be risky at times!
  • Down Special - Counter: Ike assumes a readying stance and retaliates against incoming attacks. The more powerful the incoming attack, the stronger Ike hits.
  • Final Smash - Great Aether: Ike performs an upward slash while Ragnell is engulfed in flames. If anyone is hit, he then proceeds to launch them into the air, batter them with a flurry of strikes, and then send them rocketing down to the ground with high damage and knockback.
Ike retains his previous victory theme and on-screen appearance, but now has a costume resembling the Brave Ike unit from Fire Emblem Heroes, which swaps out Ragnell for an axe.

Corrin

Corrin SSBUltimate

CorrinHeadSSBU
SSB Fire Emblem Series

Torn between Hoshido and Nohr, the half-dragon Corrin was forced to make a decision. Corrin has great range on his attacks, but lacks in linearity and being able to fight up close.

  • Neutral Special - Dragon Fang Shot: Corrin's left hand transforms into a dragon's mouth and shoots a ball of water forward. Can temporarily paralyze opponents before knocking them away, and the hand will bite nearby opponents after shooting.
  • Side Special - Dragon Lunge: Corrin strikes diagonally downwards, hitting anyone in front of him before pinning them to the ground. From there, he can cancel into a kicking attack or cancel the attack altogether, making it a versatile move.
  • Up Special - Draconic Ascent: Corrin grows wings and leaps upwards. Hits multiple times and can be angled to a degree, but doesn't cover much distance.
  • Down Special - Counter Surge: Corrin prepares for an incoming attack. If hit, he'll turn into a dragon using Dragon Fang, and then slam the ground, sending opponents high into the air via surges of water on both sides of him.
  • Final Smash - Torrential Roar: Corrin transforms into a dragon and slams the ground near him. Those who are hit are transported to a rocky area, where Corrin will unleash a whirlpool that will dish out vicious damage and knockback to his enemies.
Corrin retains his male and female alternate costumes, along with the same on-screen appearance and victory theme.

Anna

Anna Heroes
SSB Fire Emblem Series

Throughout the many battles of the Fire Emblem franchise, Anna's been a part of many of them. She's sold items to the numerous heroes and armies who've crossed paths with her. However, at times she's taken up arms herself, and wielded a myriad of skills. Some say there isn't even a singular Anna!

In Super Smash Bros. GR, Anna draws upon her appearance in Fire Emblem Heroes as an axe user, a first for the series's representation in Smash. She's a heavyweight, but a bit lighter than most heavies in that she has good ground mobility and can avoid attacks easily. Anna's strengths in particular lie in her ability to confuse and overpower enemies, due to her specials often crippling foes defensively. Anna's axe, Nóatún, allows her to take the spot as the best character in the game in regards to shield damage, being able to break shields effectively without having to rely on special moves, not to mention that it deals extra damage to opponents who have just emerged from a dodge! Anna can limit an opponent's defensive options, and her specials allow for her to show off her ferocious power, with many of them hitting quite hard.

Yet, Anna isn't flawless. She lacks range compared to a lot of characters, often having to get up close to them to dish out damage. Even her "projectile", Arrow Jump, is an unorthodox one that can't be used that effectively. Anna also suffers in regards to lag on her attacks, with many of them coming out slowly. This means that she has to make sure each hit counts and make careful decisions. Anna's throws are also mediocre and don't cover much distance, and her recovery is quite weak as well.

Overall, Anna is a unorthodox heavyweight who specializes in crippling defensive options, but can't perform well against ranged-focused characters and is easily gimped when recovering.

  • Neutral Special - Slaying Axe: Anna charges up her axe before unleashing a flurry of strikes before her. These strikes don't deal much knockback or damage, but leave the opponent in hitstun for a bit longer, allowing for combos to be utilized.
  • Side Special - Reposition: Anna performs a flipping attack with her axe. If she hits the ground instead of an enemy, a small shockwave emerges. In the air, this attack can meteor smash.
  • Up Special - Arrow Jump: Anna pulls out a bow before firing several arrows into the air below her, allowing her to soar up a distance. These arrows can bury grounded opponents, but don't meteor smash in the air.
  • Down Special - Night Sky: Anna calms her mind for several seconds, before gaining a temporary damage and knockback boost. This move has a cooldown however.
  • Final Smash - Lethality: Anna slashes at any enemies before her, trapping them in the Final Smash. From there, she unleashes a single, powerful blow from her axe that sends her foes soaring upwards into the sky.
Anna gains an alternate costume based on her appearance in Fire Emblem Awakening, though this alternate costume uses a sword instead of an axe. Anna's victory theme is the same as the other Fire Emblem characters, and her entrance animation depicts her simply leaping onto the battlefield.

Pit

Pit SSBUltimate

PitHeadSSBU
SSB Kid Icarus Series

The captain of Palutena's royal guard, Pit is one heck of a fighter who's been through all sorts of battles. His attacks are fast and powerful, and he possesses great recovery. However, his KO power is a bit limited, but for the most part he's a well-rounded character. This time around, Pit's gained a few of his Brawl attacks back, the most notable of which being the Angel Ring as his new forward smash.

  • Neutral Special - Palutena Bow: Pit fires a sky blue arrow, which can be aimed left, right, or directly upward, and the arrow can be curved mid-flight.
  • Side Special - Upperdash Arm: Pit lunges forward with the Upperdash Arm, performing a swift uppercut. The attack can reflect projectiles and has super armor.
  • Up Special - Power of Flight: Pit soars through the air a significant distance, damaging anyone he hits.
  • Down Special - Guardian Orbitars: Pit produces two Guardian Orbitars on either side of him, which will reflect projectiles and block melee attacks, though they can be broken.
  • Final Smash - Lightning Chariot: Pit gets into the Lightning Chariot as a crosshair shows up. Once a target is selected, Pit rockets towards there at lightning speed.
Pit retains his previous entrance animation and victory theme.

Palutena

Palutena SSBUltimate

PalutenaHeadSSBU
SSB Kid Icarus Series

The Goddess of Light herself, Palutena is a powerful ally of Pit's, and his boss essentially. She possesses great mobility and air game, but is held back by her large hitboxes and poor KO options. However, to lessen the blow, Palutena's frame data has been improved, allowing her to attack faster than before.

  • Neutral Special - Autoreticle: A reticle forms over a nearby opponent or location as Palutena fires three energy blasts towards it.
  • Side Special - Explosive Flame: Palutena creates a small explosion in front of her, which dishes out impressive knockback.
  • Up Special - Warp: Palutena disappears and reappears in a chosen direction.
  • Down Special - Reflect Barrier: Palutena gets into a defensive stance. If hit directly, a counterattack is performed, while if hit by a projectile, Palutena reflects it via a barrier.
  • Final Smash - Black Hole Laser: Palutena fires a black hole from her staff's orb, followed by firing a massive laser into the black hole, which attempts to pull nearby enemies into the laser. Eventually, the laser lets loose a final blast that deals major damage and knockback.
Palutena retains her previous entrance animation and victory theme.

Wario

Wario SSBUltimate

WarioHeadSSBU
SSB Wario Series

Mario's rival, Wario is a greedy man who seeks to get rich, either through treasure hunting or managing a company. Wario is a smaller heavyweight with excellent ground and aerial capabilities, but suffers in regards to range and recovery. However, many of Wario's attacks have had their lag reduced, allowing him to attack quickly and effectively. His moveset has also become more reflective of the Wario Land games, with the Earthshake Punch serving as his new down smash, not to mention more fluid animations.

  • Neutral Special - Chomp: Wario bites forward, chewing on anyone he catches.
  • Side Special - Wario Bike: Wario rides forward on his bike, damaging anyone in his way. Wario can dismount the bike at any time, after which it can be thrown at enemies and even destroyed, with the tires sticking around afterwards.
  • Up Special - Corkscrew: Wario jumps while spinning, hitting opponents multiple times.
  • Down Special - Wario Waft: Wario lets loose a fart that's stronger the more time has passed between uses. At full charge, Wario ascends upwards and can even headbutt anyone in his way after the initial fart. New to the move is that a fully charged Wario Waft leaves behind a gas cloud that lasts for several seconds, and will damage anyone who runs into it.
  • Final Smash - Wario-Man: Wario dashes forward, before transforming into Wario-Man if he hits anyone. From there, a comic book-style sequence of attacks is shown, ending with a fart that launches opponents.
Wario retains his previous entrance animation and victory theme, but does get new alternate costumes depicting his tennis outfit from Mario Tennis Aces as well as his appearance in Wario Land: Super Mario Land 3.

Orbulon

Orbulon Gold

Orbulon Stock Icon
SSB Wario Series

The alien known as Orbulon once plotted to take over the Earth. However, after his ship crashed in Diamond City, he decieed to give up his evil ways and simply develop microgames for Wario. Over time, Orbulon took a liking to Earth's culture, and is an avid fan of fast food. His microgames often challenge the player's IQ and require quick thinking.

In Super Smash Bros. GR, Orbulon is a complex lightweight. His special moves are unique in that they're almost like WarioWare's microgames, in that you need to think quickly to make the most out of them. This provides Orbulon with options and also allows for him to outwit opponents. In general however, Orbulon has quick aerial attacks, with a sweetspot along the top of his head, and a great projectile game in Identity Crisis, with four different projectiles that have their own purposes. Orbulon's mobility in general is great, and his Button Masher recovery can easily be a deadly KO tool if the buttons are pressed correctly.

However, Orbulon's biggest weakness is his learning curve. His microgame-esque specials are tricky to master, and require precise knowledge of all the possible combinations. Orbulon's specials are also a bit laggy and he can be easily disrupted should they not work as planned. Last but not least, Orbulon has a mediocre grab and throw game due to a laggy grab and throws that barely cover distance. He's also vulnerable to knockback much like other lightweights.

Overall, Orbulon's playstyle is fitting for his role in WarioWare, requiring quick thinking to master it.

  • Neutral Special - Identity Crisis: Four cards surround Orbulon, depicting a Space Bunny, a Fronk, a pig, and a Pyoro. Depending on which one is chosen, that projectile will be thrown. Each has its own damage, speed, and knockback values, so you'll need to think quickly.
  • Side Special - Tip the Scale: Orbulon presents two scales with turtles on them next to him, with one being heavier than the other. By tilting left or right, he'll toss that scale's turtles. The lighter turtle pile is thrown faster, while the heavier one deals more damage.
  • Up Special - Button Masher: Orbulon flies upward in the Oinker, damaging anyone in his way as a series of buttons is shown in front of him. Should you press them in that exact order, he'll be able to fly for longer.
  • Down Special - Sleight of Hand: Orbulon flips a giant coin that will fly through the air before coming back down in an arc, damaging anyone in its way. If Orbulon manages to catch the coin, he will immediately perform a headbutt in the arc it was moving in, which has super armor.
  • Final Smash - Abduction: Orbulon flies up into the air with the Oinker, before letting loose a beam that will abduct anyone caught in it. From there, he'll spit them out at a high velocity whilst dealing big damage.
Orbulon's victory theme is that of one of his microgames being won in WarioWare Gold, and his entrance animation has him flying on-stage via the Oinker.

Snake

Snake SSBUltimate

SnakeHeadSSBU
SSB Metal Gear Series

An ex-member of FOXHOUND and an infiltration specialist, Solid Snake is a living legend among men. His explosive-oriented playstyle allows for easy damage racking and camping, but loses out on aerial game and a linear recovery.

  • Neutral Special - Hand Grenade: Snake pulls out a grenade which explodes in three seconds, though he can throw it forward if the button is pressed again or manually.
  • Side Special - Remote Missile: Snake fires a missile that can be remote-controlled.
  • Up Special - Cypher: Snake grabs onto a Cypher as he ascends upwards. Travels more distance than before.
  • Down Special - C4: Snake plants a C4 below him, which can then be detonated by using the move again. Will attach to opponents if used near them.
  • Final Smash - Homing Missiles: Snake throws down a flare grenade to call in an airstrike, which shoots missiles at targets onstage.
Snake retains his previous entrance animation and victory theme.

Raiden

Mgs solid raiden

RaidenStockSSBGR
SSB Metal Gear Series

Raised as a child soldier, Raiden had a traumatic childhood and would later fight with the Patriots to test the S3 Plan. However, later on in his life he'd become a cyborg, one that could even channel electricity to a degree, and begin to tear apart other cyborgs and even Metal Gears.

In Super Smash Bros. GR, Raiden is among the most nimble characters in the cast, much like his home games. He has a combo-oriented playstyle that allows for him to dish out damage quickly, rebound from attacks, and easily approach. He can also make use of a unique Blade Mode mechanic where if he dodges an attack, his opponent is briefly slowed down and open to being hit. Raiden's ground game as a whole is very effective.

However, Raiden is not flawless. He has a poor air game, forcing him to keep the fight close to the ground, and lackluster frame data in those situations. In addition, Raiden might be able to dish out damage quickly, but is lacking in regards to knockback, forcing him to KO at higher percentages. He also lacks range and a proper projectile.

Overall, Raiden is a powerful fighter who excels in combos and sheer damage, but can't reliably KO enemies or fight in the air.

  • Neutral Special - Zandatsu: Raiden readies his sword as a red square appears over a nearby enemy. If Raiden manages to land an attack at this point, the attack will deal double damage and also heal Raiden by 5%. However, the healing effect has a cooldown.
  • Side Special - Ninja Run: Raiden runs forward, leaving a trail of electricity behind him. While running, the attack button can be pressed to utilize a sword strike that can reflect projectiles. In the air, this move sends Raiden a short distance instead.
  • Up Special - Sword Jump: Raiden leaps a large distance with his sword, before crashing down with it.
  • Down Special - Lightning Storm: Raiden performs a spin attack that leaves lightning around him.
  • Final Smash - Ripper Mode: Raiden lets out a maniacal laugh before letting loose a powerful sword slash. If it connects with an enemy, Raiden attacks them with a flurry of sword slashes before finishing them off with a single, powerful strike.
Raiden's outfit from Metal Gear Solid 2 appears as an alternate costume, his entrance animation has him leaping onto the stage, and his victory theme is a snippet of the main theme of Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance.

Olimar

Olimar SSBUltimate

OlimarHeadSSBU
SSB Pikmin Series

After crashing his spaceship, Olimar enlisted the local Pikmin to help him recover the parts and get back home. Since then, he's returned to their planet on numerous occasions. True to his games, Olimar uses his Pikmin in battle, providing him with excellent damage racking potential and a potent grab game. However, Olimar suffers in terms of mobility and an over-reliance on Pikmin, though he now uses four Pikmin instead of three.

  • Neutral Special - Pikmin Pluck: Olimar plucks four Pikmin, who then proceed to follow him.
  • Side Special - Pikmin Throw: Olimar throws one of his Pikmin forward, with damage and behavior varying depending on the color.
  • Up Special - Winged Pikmin: Two Winged Pikmin will pick up Olimar and fly him upwards.
  • Down Special - Pikmin Order: Olimar whistles as his Pikmin run back to him, damaging anyone in their way.
  • Final Smash - End of Day: Olimar jumps into the Hocotate Ship before it flies into the air as Bulborbs steadily inflict damage to enemies. From there, the ship crashes into the stage, unleashing a major damage-dealing explosion.
Olimar retains his previous entrance animation and victory theme, along with Alph as an alternate costume.

Sonic

Sonic SSBUltimate

SonicHeadSSBU
SSB Sonic Series

Said to be the fastest thing alive, Sonic the Hedgehog has been through countless adventures, with Dr. Eggman as his usual nemesis. True to his original games, Sonic is the fastest character in Super Smash Bros. GR, with excellent approach and neutral game options, but lacks in regards to dealing with projectiles and KOing opponents. However, Sonic's got some major changes. His down aerial is now the Drop Dash from Sonic Mania, which can be chained into a Spin Dash immediately, and the Boost as his new side special.

  • Neutral Special - Homing Attack: Sonic curls up into a ball as he ascends, before striking a nearby opponent head-on.
  • Side Special - Boost: Sonic immediately rushes forward for as long as the button is held down on the ground, and once while airborne. Deals heavy damage on impact, but has a large amount of ending lag should it not hit anyone.
  • Up Special - Spring Jump: Sonic throws a spring underneath him before leaping off of it.
  • Down Special - Spin Dash: Sonic curls up into ball form before lunging forward. The more the button is pressed, the faster he'll go. Unlike past games, the Spin Dash borrows properties from the Spin Charge as well in terms of execution.
  • Final Smash - Super Sonic: Sonic uses the Chaos Emeralds to transform into Super Sonic, before dashing back and forth across the stage at lightning speed. The player can only adjust his vertical position.
Sonic retains his previous entrance animation and victory theme, but has two new aesthetic changes: a new taunt where he performs a finger wag, and whenever Sonic is KOed, Rings come flying from his location.

Vector

Vector SSBGR

VectorStock
SSB Sonic Series

The Chaotix, a detective agency, is led by Vector the Crocodile: a scaly music-lover with a soft heart. He looks for high-paying jobs, though his tendency to occasionally work for free may be the reason for the debt of the Chaotix.

In Super Smash Bros. GR, Vector is a character who excels when it comes to both speed AND attack power. He's able to knock around opponents easily, and then retreat if they try to attack, making him a "hit and run" character of sorts. Vector's attacks are the best when it comes to sheer force, and his speed also allows him to approach easily.

Yet, Vector is slow in the air, making him more of a ground-bound character. Being a larger character, he's also vulnerable to having larger hurtboxes.

Overall, Vector is a unique heavyweight that hits hard, but isn't that strong in the air and has trouble getting back to the stage.

  • Neutral Special - Jaw: Vector opens up his jaws for a biting attack. Should he make contact, he will keep the opponent trapped in his jaws, deal damage as he bites them, then spit them behind him. If they hit a wall or floor, they'll take more damage.
  • Side Special - Head Slide: Vector slides along the ground headfirst. Upon smashing into an opponent, they'll be launched a heavy distance, while in the air, the move can meteor smash!
  • Up Special - Bubblegum Descent: Vector blows a bubble with his bubblegum before soaring into the air. He can then glide with the bubblegum for some distance before it pops.
  • Down Special - Hammer Down: Vector leaps upwards with his fists, before coming crashing down. On impact, he'll deal heavy damage and bury whoever he hits, and if he lands a direct hit on an opponent, they'll be launched upward!
  • Final Smash - Chaotix Recital: Vector calls upon Charmy Bee and Espio the Chameleon before singing loudly alongside the other Chaotix members. The song affects the whole stage, but the closer you are to Vector, the more damage and knockback you'll suffer.
Vector receives his designs from Knuckles' Chaotix and Sonic Channel as alternate costumes, his entrance animation depicts him being flown onto the stage by Charmy, and his victory music is the level clear theme from Sonic Heroes.

Villager

Villager SSBUltimate

VillagerHeadSSBU
SSB Animal Crossing Series

Throughout the Animal Crossing series, the Villager has always been there as the player's avatar: paying debts to Tom Nook, decorating their home, fishing, catching bugs, and so on. Villager is a lightweight with powerful zoning and camping games due to his Timber and Pocket moves, and can easily recover back to the stage, but suffers in regards to KO potential and poor mobility options.

  • Neutral Special - Pocket: Villager grabs a nearby projectile or item, stowing it away; using the move again will release the projectile or item with greatly increased damage and knockback.
  • Side Special - Lloid Rocket: Villager launches the Gyroid Lloid sideways as a projectile, and can choose to ride on it as a recovery of sorts.
  • Up Special - Balloon Trip: Villager equips a helmet with balloons attached to it, allowing him to fly briefly. However, the balloons can be popped!
  • Down Special - Timber: Timber is a three-part attack consisting of planting a seed, using a watering can to grow a tree from it (which can also push back opponents), and using an axe to cut down the tree or enemies.
  • Final Smash - Dream Home: Villager calls for Tom Nook and his kids to build a house around opponents near him, which eventually explodes and dishes out major damage and knockback.
The male and female villagers from Animal Crossing: New Leaf and the original Animal Crossing appear as alternate costumes, and Villager retains his previous entrance animation and victory theme.

Mega Man

Mega Man SSBL

MegaManHeadSSBU
SSB Mega Man Series

Created by Dr. Light as a lab assistant initially, the actions of Dr. Wily led Mega Man to be converted into a fighting robot to stop the doctor. Mega Man is unique in that a good chunk of his attacks are projectiles, making him great for pressuring opponents, but making him especially vulnerable to reflectors.

  • Neutral Special - Metal Blade: Mega Man throws a saw blade-esque projectile forward, which can be picked up and thrown as if it's a regular item, making it a useful tool for edgeguarding and the like.
  • Side Special - Crash Bomber: Mega Man fires a bomb forward that sticks to an opponent. It can be transferred between players via attacking, but will eventually explode for a good amount of damage and knockback.
  • Up Special - Rush Coil: The robotic dog Rush is summoned to aid Mega Man, allowing him to ascend upwards, though other players can bounce on Rush too.
  • Down Special - Leaf Shield: Mega Man summons several leaves that orbit around him, damaging enemies near him. When the button is pressed again, the leaves are thrown forward.
  • Final Smash - Mega Legends: Mega Man fires a Black Hole Bomb that sucks in anyone near the area of impact. From there, Mega Man X, MegaMan.EXE, Mega Man Volnutt, Geo Stelar, Proto Man and Bass join Mega Man as they fire their Mega Busters at their enemies, dishing out vicious damage and knockback.
Mega Man retains his previous entrance animation and victory theme.

Roll

MM11Roll

SSB Mega Man Series

Another robot created by Dr. Light as a housekeeper alongside Mega Man, Roll is more timid than her "brother". Yet, she's been in a few scraps herself and capable of fighting!

In Super Smash Bros. GR, Roll is a semiclone of Mega Man who, while retaining the same general playstyle, has a completely different set of special moves based on Mega Man's custom moves in Super Smash Bros. 4. These give her a different feel than Mega Man, and more or less allow her to stand as an alternative playstyle. That being said, these differences alone aren't the only thing keeping her from the position of Echo Fighter, as Roll is also a bit lighter than Mega Man, as well as faster. She also uses the Roll Buster instead of the Mega Buster where applicable, which has a bit more power to it.

  • Neutral Special - Hyper Bomb: Roll throws a bomb in an arc that explodes on contact with an enemy or the ground.
  • Side Special - Ice Slasher: Roll shoots a projectile forward that freezes an enemy on contact for a short period of time. Pierces through opponents.
  • Up Special - Beat: Roll calls for the robotic bird Beat as he lifts her into the air, granting flight for some distance before Beat gets exhausted and drops her.
  • Down Special - Plant Barrier: Roll produces flower petals around herself that are more durable and hit harder than Mega Man's Leaf Shield leaves, but don't travel as fast when thrown.
  • Final Smash - Hyper Roll: Roll transforms into Hyper Roll before unleashing a flurry of projectiles across the stage, dishing out massive damage.
Roll shares a victory theme with Mega Man, and her entrance animation has her arrive while sweeping before throwing the broom aside. The broom can also be summoned via a taunt and thrown as a projectile.

Wii Fit Trainer

WiiFitTrainer SSBUltimate

WiiFitTrainerHeadSSBU
SSB Wii Fit Series

The trainer of the Wii Fit series has always been an unorthodox fighter, using yoga poses to do battle. She can quickly rack up damage and get across the stage quickly, but has issues with spacing and strange hitboxes on her attacks.

  • Neutral Special - Sun Salutation: Wii Fit Trainer charges up a yellow ball in front of herself before tossing it forward. A fully charged version heals her by 2%.
  • Side Special - Header: Wii Fit Trainer heads a soccer ball, which can be hit at a variety of angles, making it great for mindgames. The move also stalls her descent if used in the air.
  • Up Special - Super Hoop: Wii Fit Trainer twirls hula hoops around herself as she ascends
  • Down Special - Deep Breathing: Wii Fit Trainer takes a deep breath. If timed correctly, 2% damage is healed and she gains a boost in walking speed, damage output, and knockback briefly, but the move has a long cooldown time.
  • Final Smash - Wii Fit: Wii Fit Trainer assumes the Warrior pose as she emits several multicolored afterimages forward, which deal damage and knockback.
Wii Fit Trainer retains the same victory animations and on-screen appearance she had before, alongside her male and female costumes.

Little Mac

Little Mac SSBU

LittleMacHeadSSBU
SSB Punch-Out Series

One of the smallest boxers to ever take up the sport, Little Mac makes up for it with speed. He's a powerful lightweight with a Power Meter that fills up as he dishes out and receives damage, allowing him to utilize the KO Punch when it's full. He has a strong ground game, but a poor aerial game as a result. This time however, Little Mac hits harder, but has a bit more lag on his attacks now.

  • Neutral Special - Straight Lunge: Little Mac charges up for a dashing punch. If the Power Meter is full, the KO Punch is used instead, which dishes out massive damage and knockback, but will fully deplete the meter when used.
  • Side Special - Jolt Haymaker: Little Mac leaps forward a massive distance with a downwards angled punch.
  • Up Special - Rising Uppercut: Little Mac rises upwards as he performs an uppercut that can hit multiple times. Travels higher than before.
  • Down Special - Slip Counter: Little Mac readies for an attack, before lunging forward with an uppercut after slipping past the attack. If hit by a projectile, he'll simply slip past it without triggering the counterattack.
  • Final Smash - Giga Mac: Little Mac transforms into Giga Mac and rushes forward, letting loose a flurry of punches at those he hits.
Little Mac retains his previous entrance animation and victory theme.

Pac-Man

Pac-Man SSBUltimate

Pac-ManHeadSSBU
SSB Pac-Man Series

The mascot of arcades, Pac-Man is a simple character who loves to eat up fruit and ghosts. He has a powerful camping-oriented playstyle due to his Fire Hydrant and Bonus Fruit, and has even been buffed to increase his movement and attack speed. However, Pac-Man is held back by his range and poor grab game.

  • Neutral Special - Bonus Fruit: Pac-Man holds out his hand as he cycles through various kinds of Bonus Fruit. Pressing the button again will throw the fruit forwards. Each type has its own damage, speed, and knockback values.
  • Side Special - Power Pellet: Pac-Man extends a trail of Pac-Dots forward, before eating them up in wedge form. If attacked during the animation, the Power Pellet at the end drops and can be eaten to heal.
  • Up Special - Pac-Jump: Pac-Man turns into wedge form and produced a trampoline below him that he can recover from. The trampoline can withstand three bounces before breaking.
  • Down Special - Fire Hydrant: Pac-Man drops a fire hydrant below himself that will spit out water. If attacked enough, it will fly through the air in an arc and deal big damage and knockback to anyone in its way.
  • Final Smash - Super Pac-Man: Pac-Man eats a Power Pellet and Super Pellet at the same time before transforming into a giant 2D version of his wedge form as he loops around the stage, chomping anyone in his way. Enemies hit take damage and knockback.
Ms. Pac-Man appears as an alternate costume for Pac-Man, and he retains his previous entrance animation and victory theme.

Shulk

Shulk SSBUltimate

ShulkHeadSSBU
SSB Xenoblade Series

When the Mechon attacked his home, Shulk set out seeking revenge, eventually picking up the sword known as the Monado. Shulk has great range on his attacks and versatility thanks to his Monado Arts, not to mention that he now attacks faster than before. However, Shulk is still held back in regards to a heavy reliance on aerials and his large build, making him vulnerable to combos.

  • Neutral Special - Monado Arts: Shulk chooses one of five Monado Arts to utilize: Jump, Speed, Shield, Buster, or Smash, each enhancing and weakening several of his attributes. They can either be sorted through linearly or selected via holding down the button and tilting the stick.
  • Side Special - Back Slash: Shulk leaps forward while slashing the Monado. Deals more damage and higher knockback if it hits an opponent from behind.
  • Up Special - Air Slash: Shulk leaps upward with the Monado as he slashes the air.
  • Down Special - Vision: Shulk foresees an attack with the Monado. If hit during the animation, Shulk retaliates with a powerful sword strike.
  • Final Smash - Chain Attack: Nearby opponents are trapped in a ball of light. From there, Shulk summons Dunban, Riki, and Fiora to help him attack his enemies, before finishing off with a powerful slash from Shulk. Damage and knockback is affected by Monado Arts.
Shulk retains his previous entrance animation and victory theme.

Duck Hunt

DuckHunt SSBUltimate

DuckHuntHeadSSBU
SSB Duck Hunt Series

In the game Duck Hunt, the dog catches the ducks shot by the hunter, so it'd seem weird for all three of them to be working together. Duck Hunt is a powerful middleweight with excellent zoning capabilities due to Trick Shot and Clay Pigeon, not to mention great frame data. However, their KO potential has been improved from their past playable appearances, but they still retain poor endurance and a linear recovery.

  • Neutral Special - Trick Shot: The dog kicks away a tin can from Hogan's Alley. The button can be pressed again to kick the can further via Zapper shots, and it will explode on contact or after a few seconds. Excellent for edgeguarding and mindgames.
  • Side Special - Clay Shooting: The dog throws forward a clay pigeon, which can then be shot by the Zapper if the move is used again.
  • Up Special - Duck Jump: The duck carries the dog into the air a good distance.
  • Down Special - Wild Gunman: The dog summons an 8-bit version of one of the gunmen from Wild Gunman. Each gunman fires their gun after a certain amount of time before disappearing, and their firing time and damage vary.
  • Final Smash - NES Zapper Posse: The dog barks to call in a flock of 8-bit ducks. Enemies hit by the ducks are transported to a wild-west-esque area from Wild Gunman, where the gunmen will shoot those trapped.
Duck Hunt retains their entrance animation and victory theme from previous titles.

Cloud

Cloud SSBL

CloudHeadSSBU
SSB Final Fantasy Series

Forced to fight against the organization he once served, Cloud Strife wields the Buster Sword and is a formidable foe for those who serve SOLDIER. Cloud's great range and speed make him a formidable foe, on top of his Limit Gauge granting him powerful options for finishing off opponents and racking up damage. Yet, he's held back by a poor recovery and susceptibility to combos due to his weight and falling speed.

  • Neutral Special - Blade Beam: Cloud launches a green, crescent-shaped beam forward that damages opponents in its way. When at full Limit, it hits opponents multiple times on top of a damage boost.
  • Side Special - Cross Slash: Cloud slashes downwards, performing follow-up slashes if the initial one connects, with high damage and moderate knockback. The Limit version uses all five strikes no matter what, along with a hefty increase in damage and knockback.
  • Up Special - Climhazzard: Cloud leaps up into the air alongside his sword, with a second button press sending him rocketing downwards. Climhazzard covers a good amount of distance but has issues with sweetspotting ledges. The Limit variant goes farther and hits harder.
  • Down Special - Limit Charge: Cloud charges his Limit Gauge manually. If at full Limit, Finishing Touch is used instead, which has Cloud slashing in a large whirlwind around himself, dishing out vicious damage and knockback, but has high ending lag.
  • Final Smash - Omnislash: Cloud rushes forward and attacks anyone in his way. From there, he unleashes a series of slashes at them, before letting loose a final slash that deals massive damage and knockback.
Cloud retains his previous victory theme and entrance animation.

Inkling

Inkling SSBL

InklingHeadSSBU
SSB Splatoon Series

The Inklings are a species capable of transforming between squid and humanoid forms at will, and enjoy taking part in Turf War battles. The Inkling is a middleweight with a unique Ink mechanic, where inked opponents take more damage. However, the Inkling often has to reload on ink by shielding and pressing the special move button simultaneously. In general however, the Inkling has great range and damage racking potential, but a mediocre recovery.

  • Neutral Special - Splattershot: The Inkling fires her Splattershot forward, damaging enemies and soaking them in ink.
  • Side Special - Splat Roller: The Inkling moves forward with her Splat Roller, damaging anyone in her way, inking them, and burying them. The move also applies ink to the ground she travels over.
  • Up Special - Super Jump: The Inkling transforms into squid form as she jumps a good distance. Causes damage during the ascent and descent.
  • Down Special - Splat Bomb: The Inkling throws a Splat Bomb a short distance, which damages opponents on impact and inks them along with the nearby ground.
  • Final Smash - Killer Wail: The Inkling throws down the Killer Wail, which emits a massive sound wave that can be angled. However, the Inkling can freely act for the duration of the move.
In addition to the previous costumes seen before, the Inkling now has two based on the male and female Inklings from Splatoon 2, and retains her previous entrance animation and victory theme.

Simon

Simon SSBUltimate

SimonHeadSSBU
SSB Castlevania Series

The most notable of the Belmont clan's vampire hunters, Simon is a fearsome fighter. His "Vampire Killer" whip boasts impressive range and allows Simon to attack from a distance, but has a lot of startup lag. The whip is a versatile tool, so use it wisely!

  • Neutral Special - Axe: Simon tosses an axe in front of him in an arc. Good for attacking airborne opponents and can even pierce through them.
  • Side Special - Cross: Simon throws a cross forward like a boomerang, which can pierce through opponents.
  • Up Special - Uppercut: Simon leaps upward with his fist. Starts up quicker than a lot of his moves, but lacks range as a result.
  • Down Special - Holy Water: Simon throws a flask of Holy Water at the ground before him, which will create a pillar of flames that can damage opponents.
  • Final Smash - Grand Cross: A large coffin appears before Simon, trapping nearby fighters in it. From there, he tosses it up into the air with his whip as multiple energy-formed crosses hit the coffin.
Simon retains his victory theme and on-screen appearance from Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.

Chibi-Robo

ChibiroboRequiem

Chibi-Robo! Emblem

Chibi-Robo is only ten feet tall, but known for being a hardworking robot. As he goes around the house, cleaning up messes and dealing with problems. Yet, he's also been outside the home and on the streets. Such a weird little guy, eh?

In Super Smash Bros. GR, Chibi-Robo is, in a way, an anti-zoning character. His down special, Toothbrush, is the cornerstone of this as it can clean away any groundbound objects and deals heavy shield damage, making it a vital tool for breaking enemy setups. Chibi-Robo can also make use of a projectile for attacking from afar, Chibi Blaster, as well as his Squirter to control enemy approaches. Last but not least, Chibi-Robo also benefits from a strong recovery with Chibi-Copter and a tether grab, as well as the use of a coffee mug as a shield which can't be poked through.

However, Chibi-Robo has poor frame data and mobility, making him an easy target for attacks. This is also further augmented by the charging cable on his back being an extra hurtbox that needs to be carefully guarded, as it takes extra damage when hit. Chibi-Robo also lacks an effective way of dealing with heavier characters due to many of his KO-inducing moves not dishing out much knockback.

Overall, Chibi-Robo is a prominent anti-zoner who excels in breaking enemy setups, but has to be careful not to let the plug on his back be attacked.

  • Neutral Special - Chibi Blaster: Chibi-Robo fires a blast of electricity forward, which hits multiple times, but leaves Chibi-Robo vulnerable.
  • Side Special - Squirter: Chibi-Robo shoots water forward, which also leaves behind a puddle that will slow down those who walk through it.
  • Up Special - Chibi-Copter: Helicopter blades emerge from Chibi-Robo's head, allowing him to fly upwards.
  • Down Special - Toothbrush: Chibi-Robo swipes his toothbrush forward, which not only deals damage, but can clear away objects on the ground like Inkling ink, Snake's C4s, Falco's Stealth Mines, Pitfalls, and more. It also deals heavy shield damage.
  • Final Smash - Recharge: Chibi-Robo begins to charge from where he's standing, causing the whole stage to surge with electricity briefly. The closer you are to Chibi-Robo, the more damage you'll take.
Chibi-Robo's entrance animation depicts him walking out of the Chibi-House, and his victory theme is a snippet of the main theme of the original Chibi-Robo.

Billy Hatcher

ASR Billy

Billy Hatcher Stock Icon
BillyHatcherSeries

An ordinary boy, Billy Hatcher was transported to the world of Morning Land after saving an innocent chick from attacking crows. From there, he donned the Legendary Chicken Suit and went off to defeat the evil Dark Raven.

In Super Smash Bros. GR, Billy Hatcher is a middleweight who excels in his projectile game. After performing most of his attacks, he'll throw an egg forward for an additional chunk of damage, making Billy great for racking up damage. He can also spawn items for himself via his Cock-A-Doodle-Do move, and has a decent recovery.

However, Billy's egg gimmick makes him a poor character for combos, and despite having great damage racking, he can't reliably KO opponents. Billy is also a bit on the slower side, and has a poor air game.

Overall, Billy Hatcher's toolkit is good for unorthodox strategies, but requires precise management.

  • Neutral Special - Cock-A-Doodle-Do: Billy places an egg in front of him and produces a chicken noise, causing it to explode and release a random item. If items are turned off, the egg simply spawns a smaller egg that can be thrown for damage.
  • Side Special - Egg Boomerang: Billy throws an egg forward that rebounds back to him.
  • Up Special - Circus Act: Billy Hatcher leaps off of a giant egg into the air, damaging those in his way, and dropping the egg below him.
  • Down Special - Egg Bounce: Billy Hatcher leaps into the air before slamming down with a giant egg.
  • Final Smash - Egg Rodeo: Billy Hatcher rolls on a giant egg around the entire stage at a lightning pace.
Rolly Roll appears as a costume for Billy Hatcher, his entrance animation has him emerge from an egg, and his victory theme is a snippet of the main theme of Billy Hatcher and the Giant Egg.

Steve

Steveminecraftrender

SteveSSBU
SSB Minecraft Series

In some games, the main character is more or less a vessel for the player to express their creativity. A blank slate, so to speak. Steve exemplifies this as part of Minecraft. Any of his actions are up to the player, whether it be mining for ore, building a house, or taking on the monsters of the world.

In Super Smash Bros. GR, Steve is a middleweight who excels in stage control due to a unique terraforming mechanic. Many of his special moves leave permanent effects on the stage until destroyed, primarily his Block Placement move. With Block Placement, Steve can actually build structures on the stage, such as a bunker or a tower to prepare his other specials from. While said structures can be destroyed, Steve can easily build more. Steve also possesses powerful aerials due to his pickaxe, not to mention a strong grab game due to his fishing rod-powered tether grab. His Dispenser can also provide a method of attacking enemies from afar.

However, Steve faces problems due to his unique playstyle. His structures can be destroyed easily, forcing him to waste time rebuilding them, not to mention that they're affected by gravity and can fall off the stage if there's no ground beneath it. Steve's recovery, while great for horizontal distance, can be gimped due to the nature of the Ender Pearl. Steve also possesses weakened KO potential due to his smash attacks capable of breaking his own blocks instantly, so he needs to worry about spacing.

Overall, Steve possesses unique mechanics that allow him to make the stage his domain, but is held back when it comes to unique problems only he has to deal with.

  • Neutral Special - Block Placement: Steve places down a random block, though the type of block placed is purely cosmetic. The block can be broken if it takes enough damage, or instantly via a smash attack, and you can place up to ten blocks on the map.
  • Side Special - Elytra: Steve dives forward via an Elytra, dealing damage and also allowing for horizontal mobility.
  • Up Special - Ender Pearl: Steve throws an Ender Pearl in a direction of his choice, which will teleport him to the location of impact, damaging anyone in the area upon arrival.
  • Down Special - Dispenser: Steve places a single Dispenser that will fire arrows until destroyed.
  • Final Smash - Ender Dragon: Steve builds an End Portal, which proceeds to suck in nearby opponents. From there, the Ender Dragon notices them and attacks them, dealing heavy damage and knockback as they soar out of the portal.
Steve gets several palette swaps resembling a Zombie, a Skeleton, a Zombie Pigman, and Herobrine, his entrance animation has him spawn in as the text "Steve joined the game" appears in the bottom left-hand side of the screen, and his victory theme is a snippet of Minecraft's title screen theme.

Alex

Alex SSBL

SSB Minecraft Series

Another representation of Minecraft's player, Alex is more or less Steve's female counterpart, and another "blank slate".

In Super Smash Bros. GR, Alex is a semiclone of Steve who has a completely different set of special moves that are more straightforward than Steve's, and less about stage control, showcasing the "item" side of Minecraft as opposed to the structural side. She's also a bit heavier and hits harder than Steve due to her more combat-oriented moves, but is also easier to hit around herself.

  • Neutral Special - Crafting: A crafting grid appears over Alex's head, offering several choices of items to create in a similar vein to Shulk's Monado Arts. Once an item is crafted, you'll have to wait twenty seconds before crafting a new item, and crafting itself leaves you open. The following items can be crafted:
    • Diamond Sword: The Diamond Sword grants Alex stronger attack power for a brief period of time.
    • Flint and Steel: Crafting a Flint and Steel causes Alex to immediately create a fire in front of herself that will remain active for a long period of time, dealing damage to those who hit it.
    • Bow: When crafted, Alex immediately shoots an arrow forward that deals major damage and knockback.
    • Bread: Crafting a loaf of bread allows Alex to heal 7% damage.
    • Shield: When crafted, Alex gains a shield in her hand that can deflect a single projectile or protect from an attack before breaking.
  • Side Special - TNT Minecart: Alex shoves a TNT Minecart forward, and can even ride on it should she wish. If it hits anyone, the minecart explodes, but also grants Alex a boost in altitude should she be riding on it.
  • Up Special - Slime Block: Alex places a Slime Block below her that she can bounce off of, much like Pac-Man's trampoline. The block eventually disappears.
  • Down Special - Lingering Potion of Poison: Alex throws a Lingering Potion of Poison forward that will shroud an area with poison. Enemies who walk into it gain flowers on their heads.
  • Final Smash - Wither: Alex builds a Nether Portal, which will attempt to suck in players. Those who are sucked in are thrown in front of a Wither, who will attack them with a flurry of attacks.
Alex has the same entrance animation and victory theme as Steve.

Banjo & Kazooie

BanjoBlueSeaRender

BanjoKazooieStock
SSBZBanjoKazooieSymbol

Banjo & Kazooie have been friends for a long time, going on all sorts of adventures. Usually however, they're battling against the evil Gruntilda, using their wide array of moves to travel across the world. Let's just not leave them near anything mechanical...

In Super Smash Bros. GR, Banjo & Kazooie are a duo character who have strange hitboxes on their attacks, thanks to both characters attacking. They generally have a wide variety of options for projectiles, recovery, and mobility. In addition, attacks that hit Kazooie deal less damage than those that hit Banjo, making her a good defensive tool, and she can also offer Banjo a third jump and slow descent speed.

However, Banjo & Kazooie are not flawless. They possess a poor grab game due to Banjo using Kazooie as an extended grab of sorts (but not a tether), and their throws aren't that strong either. Their recovery, while strong, is also quite linear and easy to gimp.

Overall, Banjo & Kazooie are relatively balanced, though they have a few specific flaws.

  • Neutral Special - Eggs: Banjo crouches as Kazooie fires off a barrage of eggs. If the button is held down instead, Kazooie lays an egg behind her that damages on impact and bounces along the ground.
  • Side Special - Wonder Wing: Kazooie wraps her feathers around Banjo as they charge forward for big damage.
  • Up Special - Pack Jump: Banjo uses his backpack as a spring as he leaps upward.
  • Down Special - Talon Trot: Kazooie hauls Banjo onto her back as she runs around with increased speed. At any point, Kazooie can hurl Banjo over her back by pressing the button again, using him as a projectile, and can also peck enemies while running.
  • Final Smash - Mighty Jinjonator: Kazooie unleashes a massive peck forward that, if it connects, transports the foes hit to Grunty's Tower, where the Mighty Jinjonator unleashes a flurry of attacks at them.
Banjo & Kazooie's design from Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts and Bolts appears as an alternate costume, their entrance animation has Kazooie flying the duo onto the stage, and their victory theme is that of the jingle played when a Jiggy is collected in the original Banjo-Kazooie.

Diablo

DiabloGR

SSB Diablo Symbol

The infamous Lord of Terror, Diablo has desecrated Sanctuary countless times. He's died and come back time and time again, and even used mortals as vessels.

In Super Smash Bros. GR, Diablo is a powerful heavyweight who quite literally uses fear to strike at his enemies. He possesses incredible power on a lot of his attacks, and many of his special moves have powerful side effects. He also has a passive Hellfire effect where his fire-based moves cause extra damage over time if he's taken at least 75% damage. Diablo also has great recovery with Shadow Charge and Apocalypse.

However, Diablo is held back by his poor frame data, with most moves coming out slowly, as well as poor ground movement that relies heavily on Shadow Charge. Diablo also has a large size that makes him vulnerable to combos.

Overall, Diablo is an extremely heavy-hitting character, but needs to rely on spacing and avoiding bad situations.

  • Neutral Special - Fire Stomp: Diablo charges up his foot, before stomping and shooting a wave of flame forward. The longer the button is held for, the more waves will be fired.
  • Side Special - Shadow Charge: Diablo charges forward, damaging enemies in his way and knocking them directly forward. If he manages to knock an enemy into a solid object or another enemy, they're stunned briefly!
  • Up Special - Apocalypse: Diablo pauses briefly, before ascending while coated in flames and leaving behind a ring of fire that dishes out massive knockback to those who hit it.
  • Down Special - Overpower: Diablo tries to grab an enemy. If the grab connects, he slams them behind him and buries them.
  • Final Smash - Lightning Breath: Diablo fires off a massive beam of energy that damages everyone in his way, before knocking them a huge distance.
Murkablo from Heroes of the Storm appears as a palette swap for Diablo, his entrance animation has him appear from a fiery portal, and his victory theme is a snippet of the main theme of Diablo III.

Spyro

SpyroReignited

Spyro
SpyroSymbol

When Gnasty Gnorc attacked the Dragon Realms and froze all the local dragons in crystal statues, Spyro emerged to challenge him, and prevailed. From there, Spyro would go on all sorts of adventures, alongside the dragonfly Sparx. His fire breath and horns are to be feared.

In Super Smash Bros. GR, Spyro is a middleweight character who excels when it comes to zoning and distancing. His Fire Breath is capable of knocking away opponents unlike most projectiles.. Spyro also possesses quite a bit of KO power, with many of his high-knockback moves hitting quickly and effectively. Access to an additional jump and gliding also benefit Spyro immensely, along with a decent recovery.

That being said, Spyro is not flawless. His ability to rack up damage is generally slow, due to most his moves only hitting once, but hitting HARD. Ironically, Spyro's air attacks are somewhat lackluster, with high lag moves that don't dish out that much knockback, forcing him to stick to the ground. Last but not least, Spyro's grabs and throws aren't the best, with high ending lag and more time left vulnerable.

Overall, Spyro is a character who excels in keeping enemies away from him and finishing off opponents, but can be in trouble when it comes to air game and damage racking.

  • Neutral Special - Fire Breath: Spyro shoots a fireball forward that can knock away opponents easily.
  • Side Special - Charge: Spyro rushes forward with a headbutt that dishes out heavy knockback and damage. In the air, the move will slow Spyro's fall.
  • Up Special - Superfly: Spyro soars into the air in a tornado formation, damaging anyone in his way, before going into a glide.
  • Down Special - Headbash: Spyro leaps into the air if groundbound, before rocketing downwards with a headbutt. This move can meteor smash and bury opponents.
  • Final Smash - Superflame: Spyro leaps into the air, before shooting a massive fireball that damages any opponents caught in it, before exploding and sending them flying.
Ember appears as a palette swap for Spyro, his entrance animation has him fly onto the stage, and his victory theme is a snippet of the main theme of the original Spyro the Dragon.

Jack Frost

Jack Frost

JackFrost Stock
SSB ShinMegamiTensei

They say Jack Frost is responsible for the world's cold weather. That he's the one who brings about snow and frost. Well, that much is true, but normally he's some demon who'll join the side of someone who seeks to kill demons. Seems weird, huh?

In Super Smash Bros. GR, Jack Frost is a lightweight who excels in slowing down and disabling enemies. He has a unique Freeze mechanic where any of his attacks have a chance of briefly encasing the opponent in a block of ice, leaving them vulnerable to attacks, and this is further enhanced via Jack Frost's Freeze Boost move, which increases his odds of Freezing an opponent. Besides that, Jack Frost has a small frame that makes him less vulnerable to attacks, and can make use of great KOing moves via his smash attacks as well as several projectiles for zoning.

However, Jack Frost is a lightweight who's easily knocked around, and heavily reliant on Freezing enemies to dish out damage. He also possesses a weak recovery in Mabufu, and his grabs are lackluster, with poor frame data and throws that don't send opponents that far.

Overall, Jack Frost is a powerful character who can stop enemies right in their tracks, but has to be careful to watch what enemies are going to do to him.

  • Neutral Special - Bufu: Jack Frost unleashes a storm of ice forward that will slow down enemies within its range.
  • Side Special - Bufula: Jack Frost throws a shard of ice forward that locks onto enemies. It his multiple times, and each individual hit has a chance of Freezing the opponent.
  • Up Special - Mabufu: Jack Frost ascends upwards via blasts of ice, meteor smashing those he hits from above.
  • Down Special - Freeze Boost: Jack Frost lets out a "Hee-Ho" as he jumps quickly, raising his chances of Freezing an opponent.
  • Final Smash - Hama: Jack Frost unleashes a massive storm of light forward that, if it connects with an enemy, hits them with a flurry of light energy and KOes them if they're over 100% damage. If they survive, they're instantly Frozen instead.
Jack Frost's entrance animation depicts him emerging from a giant chunk of ice, and his victory theme is a snippet of the main theme of Shin Megami Tensei IV.

Characters

Luigi

Luigi SSBUltimate

LuigiHeadSSBU
SSB Mario Series

Often seen as Mario's "Player 2", Luigi is still a versatile fighter on his own. He plays similarly to Mario, even retaining his footstool jumping mechanic, but also has a few unique tricks up his own sleeves. Namely, he now uses the Thunderhand from Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga in his side smash, and a ground-pound as his new down aerial. He can also use the Poltergust 5000 as a grab.

  • Neutral Special - Fireball: Luigi throws a fireball forward. Unlike Mario's, Luigi's fireball travels straight no matter what.
  • Side Special - Green Missile: Luigi shoots forward as a human missile after charging up. It has a 1/8 chance of misfiring, where it will travel farther and deal extra damage.
  • Up Special - Super Jump Punch: Luigi leaps into the air with a massive jumping punch. Unlike Mario's, Luigi's jump punch has a sweetspot right at the front, which deals major damage and knockback should it hit, and only 1% damage if it doesn't hit the sweetspot.
  • Down Special - Luigi Cyclone: Luigi spins around like a tornado. The more the button is mashed, the longer the move will go on for.
  • Final Smash - Poltergust 5000: Luigi vacuums nearby enemies into the Poltergust, before spitting them out at a high velocity.
Luigi retains his previous victory theme and entrance animation, but has three new costumes: an outfit resembling Mr. L from Super Paper Mario, his golf outfit from NES Open Tournament Golf, and his tennis outfit from Mario Tennis Aces. The Polterpup from Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon also appears in one of Luigi's taunts.

Daisyε

DaisyHeadSSBU
SSB Mario Series

Daisy is an ECHO of PeachHeadSSBU PEACH.

The princess of Sarasaland was once kidnapped by Tatanga before Mario saved her, and since then she's frequented sporting events and struck up a bond with Luigi. Daisy acts as Peach's Echo Fighter, retaining the same moveset and characteristics but with different properties.

  • Neutral Special - Bunbun: Daisy pulls out a Bunbun from Super Mario Land to defend herself, as a counterattack. If hit, the Bunbun will jab the opponent viciously with its spear.
  • Side Special - Daisy Bomber: Daisy lunges forward with a powerful hip bash, rebounding if the hit lands.
  • Up Special - Parasol: Daisy leaps into the air with her parasol, before gliding through the air afterwards.
  • Down Special - Vegetable: Daisy plucks a vegetable out of the ground, which can then be thrown. Each vegetable has varying damage, and Daisy also has a chance of being able to pluck Bob-ombs, Beam Swords, and even Mr. Saturns!
  • Final Smash - Daisy Blossom: Daisy performs a dance as enemies onscreen fall asleep, with flowers spawning on their heads afterwards.
Daisy retains her previous victory theme and entrance animation, but now has a new costume reminiscent of her design prior to Mario Party 4.

Dr. Mario

DrMario SSBUltimate

DrMarioHeadSSBU
SSB Mario Series

When the Viruses attacked, Mario donned his doctor's garb to fight back. Dr. Mario plays similarly to Mario, but is heavier and hits harder, at the cost of mobility.

  • Neutral Special - Megavitatim: Mario throws a Megavitamin forward. If the button is held down, a larger one is tosses instead that's slower, but stronger.
  • Side Special - Super Sheet: Mario uses a white sheet to turn around an opponent or reflect an incoming projectile.
  • Up Special - Super Jump Punch: Dr. Mario leaps into the air with a massive jumping punch.
  • Down Special - Doctor Tornado: Dr. Mario spins around viciously like a tornado. The more the button is mashed, the longer the move will go on for.
  • Final Smash - Virus Buster: Dr. Mario throws a giant Megavitamin that sucks in nearby opponents. They are then thrown into a giant glass jar full of Viruses who will attack them, before the jar explodes and sends them flyinh.
Dr. Mario retains his previous victory theme and entrance animation, but Dr. Luigi appears as an alternate costume, though he retains the same hitboxes as his brother.

Tatangaε

Tatanga SSBGR

SSB Mario Series

Tatanga is an ECHO of BowserJrHeadSSBU BOWSER JR.

The alien known as Tatanga once invaded Sarasaland, hypnotizing its residents into his servitude and kidnapping Princess Daisy. However, Mario would later come to Sarasaland and engage Tatanga in battle after saving all four of its kingdoms. Enraged, Tatanga joined forces with Wario after his conquest of Mario's castle, taking up residence in the Space Zone, and would even be brainwashed by Bowser later on to conquer Sarasaland again.

In Super Smash Bros. GR, Tatanga acts as Bowser Jr.'s Echo Fighter: retaining many basic moves, but having differing properties. He continues to act as a heavyweight with disjointed hitboxes and good pressuring options. However, Tatanga's differences aren't as profound as most Echo Fighters. In particular, Tatanga has access to a third jump, providing him with more recovery options, as well as stronger throws and various adjustments to his special moves. However, this comes at the cost of reduced knockback on most of Tatanga's attacks, limiting his KO potential, along with reduced range on a few attacks.

Overall, Tatanga acts very similar to Bowser Jr., but his moves have a different feel to them than Junior, making him a good alternative.

  • Neutral Special - Cannonball Spray: Tatanga charges up a cannonball blast, which will split into three smaller cannonballs after. The initial cannonball doesn't deal as much damage as Bowser Jr.'s.
  • Side Special - Dive Bomb: Tatanga swoops down towards the ground before flying along at a rocketing pace, hitting anyone in his way.
  • Up Special - Meteor Ejection: Tatanga leaps out of his ship as it hits the ground, burying anyone it lands on. Unlike Bowser Jr.'s Abandon Ship!, Meteor Ejection covers more distance at the cost of being unable to attack after ejecting.
  • Down Special - Bombshell Koopa: Tatanga releases a Bombshell Koopa from his ship, which will explode on contact with an enemy. They're more durable than Bowser Jr.'s Mechakoopas, but move slower to compensate.
  • Final Smash - Pagosu: Tatanga fires an energy ball that transports anyone hit to his battle arena from Super Mario Land. From there, he emerges in his original ship, the Pagosu, and bombards them with cannonballs before the cutscene ends.
Tatanga flies onto the stage for his entrance animation, and his victory theme is that of a level being cleared in Super Mario Land.

Funky Kongε

MTOCG Funky Kong

FunkyStock
SSB Donkey Kong Series

Funky Kong is an ECHO of DonkeyKongHeadSSBU DONKEY KONG.

An ally of Donkey Kong, Funky Kong has always been there to provide aid to the big ape and his allies, whether it be through providing his vehicles or selling items. Funky has also went on adventures of his own and even played baseball and went kart racing once!

In Super Smash Bros. GR, Funky Kong acts as Donkey Kong's Echo Fighter, retaining many of DK's animations and special moves. However, Funky Kong is a bit faster than his base character, with his attacks coming out quicker but dealing less damage. He's also a bit lighter than Donkey Kong and can cover more vertical distance with Spinning Kong, but less horizontal distance as a result. Funky Kong also benefits from a projectile, the Orange, instead of getting Donkey Kong's Giant Punch. Funky's aerials also hit harder than DK's, but as a result his ground attacks aren't as strong.

Compared to Donkey Kong, Funky Kong can attack quicker and recover more effectively, but loses out on sheer power as well as being hit farther than his base character. Funky's playstyle isn't as aggressive and moreso about making quick, rapid attacks and keeping distance.

  • Neutral Special - Orange: Funky Kong tosses an Orange from Donkey Kong 64 a short distance. It explodes after a few seconds, dealing damage and knockback.
  • Side Special - Headbutt: Funky Kong performs a headbutt that can bury grounded foes and meteor smash airborne foes. Unlike Donkey Kong's Headbutt, Funky's produces horizontal momentum and stalls his fall when used in midair.
  • Up Special - Spinning Kong: Funky Kong spins around with his arms outstretched. Compared to Donkey Kong's Spinning Kong, Funky's is the inverse: it covers a lot of vertical distance but barely any horizontal distance.
  • Down Special - Hand Slap: Funky Kong slaps the ground with his bare hands, sending nearby enemies skyward. Funky's Hand Slap sends enemies upwards at an angle rather than straight up.
  • Final Smash - Jumbo Barrel: Funky Kong flies up into the air with his Jumbo Barrel plane, with the fighters he's hit strapped to it. He then performs a barrel roll and sends them flying off the plane, dealing heavy damage and knockback.
Funky gets his outfit from Donkey Kong 64 as an alternate costume, and he shares a victory theme with the other Donkey Kong characters. His entrance animation has him flying onto the stage via his plane.

KingKRoolHeadSSBU
SSB Donkey Kong Series

The leader of the Kremling Krew, King K. Rool sought to steal Donkey Kong's Banana Hoard for some time, but eventually turned to more sinister dealings. K. Rool is an unorthodox heavyweight with a strong projectile game, on top of gaining a counter, but is vulnerable to combos due to his sheer size.

  • Neutral Special - Blunderbuss: K. Rool shoots a cannonball from his blunderbuss, before being able to suck enemies into it. He can then shoot them out of the blunderbuss for big damage.
  • Side Special - Crown Throw: K. Rool throws his crown like a boomerang, but it can be picked up and thrown like an item.
  • Up Special - Helicopter Backpack: King K. Rool ascends upwards via a helicopter backpack.
  • Down Special - Stomach Attack: K. Rool prepares for an attack, inflating his stomach should he get hit.
  • Final Smash - Blast-O-Matic: K. Rool lunges forward, sending anyone he hits to Donkey Kong Island. From there, he laughs manically before firing the Blast-O-Matic at the island, dealing major damage and knockback.
King K. Rool retains his previous victory theme and entrance animation, but now has an alternate costume resembling his post-Donkey Kong 64 design. He also uses his actual voice clips instead of generic crocodile noises.

Young Link

YoungLink SSBUltimate

YoungLinkHeadSSBU
SSB The Legend of Zelda Series

Link started his journey as a boy when Ganondorf first showed up, venturing through all sorts of locales. Young Link plays similarly to Link, but is smaller and faster. His Deku Shield can also deflect projectiles via a button press, but larger ones cannot be deflected, and the milk drinking taunt now takes longer, but heals 10% damage if it isn't interrupted.

  • Neutral Special - Fairy Slingshot: Young Link fires a flaming Deku Seed from his Fairy Slingshot. Hits harder than Link's Bow but doesn't go as far.
  • Side Special - Boomerang: Young Link throws a boomerang forward that comes back to him, hitting opponents both ways.
  • Up Special - Spin Attack: Young Link spins around himself with the Kokiri Sword. In the air, he will ascend this way.
  • Down Special - Bomb: Young Link grabs a bomb from his bag, which will eventually explode. The bomb can be thrown like an item, or kept on Young Link and used to recover.
  • Final Smash - Fierce Deity Mask: Young Link equips the Fierce Deity Mask, before letting loose a sword slash. From there, he unleashes more if the initial one connects, before finishing with a stab that sends the opponent flying.
Young Link retains his previous victory theme and entrance animation.

Vaati

Character-portrait vaati

VaatiStock
SSB The Legend of Zelda Series

Vaati, once an apprentice of the Minish sage Ezlo, is one of Hyrule's most notorious enemies. His search for the Light Force transformed him into a monster, one defeated by multiple incarnations of Link. His magical abilities as a wind mage are to be feared.

In Super Smash Bros. GR, Vaati is a "glass cannon" of sorts. He possesses a strong projectile game thanks to his Eye Shields, capable of attacking opponents from afar. Vaati also possesses strong smash attacks, and can generally control the distance between him and his opponents due to many of his attacks having windboxes, as well as decent ground and air mobility.

However, Vaati is a lightweight character, making him easy to knock around. His attacks also have high ending lag, making it easy to punish Vaati after he misses an attack. Vaati's recovery is also linear and easy to exploit, and his grabs have poor frame data, coming out slowly. Vaati's projectile-oriented playstyle doesn't leave much room for mistakes.

To sum things up, Vaati is a character who needs to keep his distance from his opponents, lest he be exploited.

  • Neutral Special - Eye Shields: Vaati conjures an eye that will orbit himself and enhance his other moves. The Eyes orbit Vaati, and can also damage enemies up close. However, they're fragile and easily destroyed up-close, though projectiles will hit Vaati directly and avoid the Eyes. Up to six Eyes can be summoned.
  • Side Special - Eye Blast: Vaati summons a floating Eye temporarily (if none exist from the use of Eye Shield) before shooting a laser beam in any direction of his choice. If the laser hits an opponent, they take damage and suffer from hitstun. If Eye Shield has at least one Eye up, the laser beam is stronger.
  • Up Special - Warp: Vaati teleports a short distance, dealing damage upon arrival. If he has Eyes up, he's able to go father and deal more damage.
  • Down Special - Cyclone: Vaati summons a cyclone in front of him that deals vicious damage. With Eyes up, one will be sacrificed to deal more damage and knockback.
  • Final Smash - Vaati's Wrath: Vaati transforms into his Vaati's Wrath form from The Legend of Zelda: The Minish Cap, before charging up and unleashing a flurry of energy balls across the stage for a short period of time. These energy balls travel quickly and can be angled.
Vaati's entrance animation depicts him teleporting into battle, and his victory theme is that of the stage clear music from The Legend of Zelda: Four Swords Adventures.

Zant

HW Zant

ZantStock
SSB The Legend of Zelda Series

Zant forcefully took control of the Twili from Midna in order to claim his place as their leader, thanks to the manipulation of Ganondorf. From there, he set out on an invasion of Hyrule, but was stopped by Link.

In Super Smash Bros. GR, Zant is a middleweight with a prominent combo game, with most of his moves chaining into each other. He can shred through enemies, and also make use of both powerful projectiles and kill setups. In particular, his Twilight Blasts neutral special can be used for zoning, and his Shadow Crystal can also trick enemies and disable their shields entirely!

However, Zant is not flawless. He's a bit on the slow side, and his large frame makes him subsceptible to combos. His Schmitar Blender move also has a lot of ending lag due to its power, making it risky to use.

Overall, Zant has a prominent combo game and move-chaining ability, but is hindered by subsceptability to attacks.

  • Neutral Special - Twilight Blasts: Zant fires off blasts of Twilight energy forward that move erratically and are hard to predict.
  • Side Special - Schmitar Blender: Zant whirls around with his schmitars for as long as the button is held down. While the move hits multiple times, it also has a lot of ending lag. The longer you were spinning for, the longer Zant will be out of commission for.
  • Up Special - Portal: Zant rips open a Twilight Portal, before reemerging in a direction of choice.
  • Down Special - Shadow Crystal: Zant shoots a Shadow Crystal forward. If it hits anyone, they're surrounded by an aura of Twilight that prevents them from shielding, rolling, or airdodging for a brief moment of time.
  • Final Smash - Curtain of Twilight: Zant causes the Curtain of Twilight to emerge in the center of the stage as it pulls enemies in. Whoever is pulled in is transported to the Twilight Realm, where a giant Zant will unleash a flurry of attacks that dish out heavy damage and knockback.
Zant has alternate costumes resembling Phantom Zant and the Twilit Messengers, his entrance animation has him emerging from a portal, and his victory theme is that of obtaining an item in The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess.

Dark Samusε

DarkSamus SSBUltimate

DarkSamusHeadSSBU
SSB Metroid Series

Dark Samus is an ECHO of SamusHeadSSBU SAMUS.

Dark Samus was formed after Samus defeated Metroid Prime on Tallon IV. She serves as Samus's Echo Fighter, retaining a similar moveset and characteristics. However, Dark Samus doesn't transform into her ball form when dodging attacks, and is a bit floatier.

  • Neutral Special - Charge Shot: Dark Samus charges up a powerful shot before releasing it.
  • Side Special - Missile: Dark Samus fires a Missile forward, which homes in on opponents, but if the stick is tapped like a smash attack, the faster, stronger Super Missile is shot instead, which only moves straight. Both missile types have been buffed to move faster and hit harder however.
  • Up Special - Screw Attack: Dark Samus leaps upwards in a somersault while discharging energy.
  • Down Special - Bomb: Dark Samus goes into her Morph Ball form and drops a Bomb, which eventually explodes.
  • Final Smash - Phazon Laser: Samus fires a massive laser beam across the stage.
Dark Samus retains her previous victory theme and entrance animation.

Zero Suit Samus

ZeroSuitSamus SSBUltimate

ZeroSuitSamusHeadSSBU
SSB Metroid Series

Samus often dons her Zero Suit for more stealthy missions, as well as emergencies. Zero Suit Samus possesses a powerful air game and great recovery, but is a poor character on the ground and needs to stick to the air. She does however benefit from a tether grab and good range on attacks.

  • Neutral Special - Paralyzer: Zero Suit Samus fires a blast forward from her Paralyzer, dealing damage and stunning opponents briefly. The blast can be charged too.
  • Side Special - Plasma Whip: Zero Suit Samus throws her whip forward in a swirling motion, which can hit repeatedly.
  • Up Special - Boost Kick: Zero Suit Samus activates her Jet Boots as she kicks upwards with them.
  • Down Special - Flip Jump: Zero Suit Samus leaps backwards in an attempt to kick an opponent.
  • Final Smash - Gunship: Zero Suit Samus leaps for her gunship, before it emerges on the stage with her in her Varia Suit. She then fires a devastating laser from the top of the ship.
Zero Suit Samus retains her previous victory theme and entrance animation.

Wolf

Wolf SSBUltimate

WolfHeadSSBU
SSB Star Fox Series

Wolf leads the Star Wolf team and has often done battle with Fox and his team. He plays similarly to Fox, but has differing properties on his moves and vastly different non-special attacks.

  • Neutral Special - Blaster: Wolf fires off a machine gun that deals small bits of damage per shot, but fires faster than Fox's Blaster.
  • Side Special - Wolf Flash: Wolf darts forward at blinding speed, leaving behind afterimages. Goes higher than Fox Illusion.
  • Up Special - Fire Wolf: Wolf flies in a chosen direction, damaging enemies multiple times.
  • Down Special - Reflector: Wolf activates a reflector around himself, with the initial activation dealing damage. For as long as the button is held, incoming projectiles will be deflected.
  • Final Smash - Wolfen Strike: Wolf calls for the rest of his team to fly in front of him in Wolfens, before throwing them into space. From there, they let loose a barrage of lasers that dish out big damage and knockback.
Wolf retains his previous victory theme and entrance animation, but now has alternate costumes resembling his appearance in Star Fox 2 and his Star Fox: Assault outfit.

Krystal

Krystal Smashified

Krystal Icon DSSB Smashboards
SSB Star Fox Series

The only survivor of the planet Cerinia's destruction, Krystal came to Sauria searching for answers. She'd quickly get embroiled in a local war, and captured within a crystalline cell. If it wasn't for the arrival of Fox McCloud however, she'd be dead, and so would Sauria. Krystal would join the Star Fox team just in time for the war with the Aparoids, and though she'd later depart due to a personal situation, she'd remain a powerful figure within the Lylat System.

In Super Smash Bros. GR, Krystal is a middleweight with a varied moveset, and one of the more "all-around" weapon users in the game. Krystal's staff allows her to utilize a myriad of unique attacks, such as firing blasts of energy, causing miniature earthquakes, or even soaring into the air. Krystal possesses good range for spacing on her attacks, and can also take advantage of a good recovery.

However, Krystal lacks meaningful finishing moves and KO power, making it hard for her to launch enemies. She also has quite a bit of startup lag on her special moves, not to mention mediocre attack speeds for her air game. Krystal's projectile-oriented attacks also make her easily gimped by reflectors.

Overall, Krystal possesses a fairly balanced set of advantages and disadvantages, making her great for new players. Skilled players may find themselves drawn to Krystal's range and recovery, but will suffer in regards to aerial game and a lack of KO potential.

  • Neutral Special - Fire Blaster: Krystal shoots a ball of fiery energy. The ball can be angled, and when it hits a target they'll be caught in a miniature flame akin to Ness and Lucas's PK Fire.
  • Side Special - Ice Blaster: Krystal shoots a spray of ice in front of her. At long range, it will simply damage enemies, while up close it will actually freeze them as well.
  • Up Special - Rocket Boost: Krystal launches herself into the air. This move can also be angled to go sideways or even downwards, and will deal damage to enemies it hits.
  • Down Special - Ground Quake: Krystal slams her staff onto the ground, causing a shockwave to emerge. In the air, she'll instantly drop with the staff, but can land a meteor smash this way!
  • Final Smash - CloudRunner: Krystal gets onto a CloudRunner, before flying forwards at an alarming speed, dealing vicious damage and knockback to anyone in her way.
While her main design is a fusion of Star Fox Adventures and Star Fox: Assault, Krystal gets two costumes that fully resemble those games' depictions of her. Her victory theme is shared with the other Star Fox characters, and her entrance animation depicts her getting off of an EarthWalker.

Adeleine

Adeleine- Star Allies

AdeleineStock
SSB Kirby Series

When Dark Matter devastated Planet Popstar, Adeleine was forcibly corrupted by its energies, and fought with Kirby. However, she was later freed from Dark Matter's grasp and would go on to aid Kirby in many of his adventures.

In Super Smash Bros. GR, Adeleine is a unique lightweight who specializes in stage control and projectiles. Her Painter special is capable of summoning enemies to aid her, providing a means of distracting opponents. Her attacks also come out fairly early frame-wise, and have good reach due to the use of a paintbrush and its disjointed hitboxes. Adeleine's Canvas Cover is also an immensely useful tool that can block damage and allow for a manual counterattack, and a means of defending herself.

However, Adeleine's flaws come from the fact that she's lightweight, and thus easily knocked around. Her recovery is also quite mediocre and easily gimped, not to mention that Adeleine's aerial moves have quite a bit of ending lag. Adeleine's specials, while powerful, are also vulnerable to characters with reflectors, who can easily nullify their advantages.

As a whole, Adeleine is a powerful user of projectile combat who can rack up damage quickly, but faces trouble knockback-wise.

  • Neutral Special - Painter: Adeleine paints an enemy on her canvas, which will then attack opponents. These enemies are very fragile however, and will eventually despawn.
  • Side Special - Ribbon's Crystal: Adeleine shoots a Crystal Shard at an opponent via Ribbon's Crystal Gun.
  • Up Special - Ribbon Flight: Ribbon carries Adeleine into the air a large distance. If the button is pressed again, the duo will twirl around in the air, damaging nearby opponents.
  • Down Special - Canvas Cover: Adeleine ducks behind her canvas, causing it to soak up damage for her. She can reemerge from it to deal damage, or use it as a shield.
  • Final Smash - Ado's Painter: Adeleine paints Kracko above the stage, who will then unleash massive lightning bolts capable of dishing out massive damage to enemies.
Adeleine has an alternate costume resembling Ado from Kirby's Dream Land 3, her victory animation has her being drawn onto the stage, and her victory theme is shared with Kirby and King Dedede.

Jigglypuff

Jigglypuff SSBUltimate

JigglypuffHeadSSBU
SSB Pokémon Series

Known for singing people to sleep, Jigglypuff is quite a force to be reckoned with. The floatiest character in the game, it gets access to multiple midair jumps and an excellent air game, but is very vulnerable to knockback and can even be instantly KOed should its shield be broken! However, Jigglypuff's been buffed to have her Melee throw game return, along with ground attacks coming out faster.

  • Neutral Special - Rollout: Jigglypuff spins itself before rolling forward. Can be dangerous to use in midair due to it descending in the air.
  • Side Special - Pound: Jigglypuff punches forward as it steps forward. The move also preserves Jigglypuff's aerial momentum, making it a powerful recovery tool.
  • Up Special - Sing: Jigglypuff sings, putting opponents near it to sleep. It's not a recovery move unlike most up specials.
  • Down Special - Rest: Jigglypuff falls asleep, but if it makes contact with anyone during the startup animation, they're launched a massive distance and dealing big damage, on top of putting a flower on their head.
  • Final Smash - Puff Up: Jigglypuff inflates itself to a massive size, damaging anyone it hits, before quickly deflating.
Jigglypuff retains its previous victory theme and entrance animation.

Pichu

Pichu SSBUltimate

PichuHeadSSBU
SSB Pokémon Series

Pikachu's pre-evolution, Pichu is known for accidentally discharging electricity. It plays similarly to Pikachu, but is much lighter and faster, though it can be knocked around easier. It also possesses a mechanic where it takes recoil damage on several attacks should those attacks actually hit, unlike past games. Pichu's pummel and forward throw also no longer inflict recoil damage, and Pichu in general also hits harder than before, at the cost of recoil being larger.

  • Neutral Special - Thunder Jolt: Pichu fires off a ball of electricity that will move along walls and ceilings.
  • Side Special - Skull Bash: Pichu lunges forward with a massive headbutt, which can cover a lot of horizontal distance if charged up enough.
  • Up Special - Agility: Pichu quickly dashes at blinding speed in two directions that can be picked via the control stick. Goes farther than Pikachu's Quick Attack, but doesn't deal any damage.
  • Down Special - Thunder: Pichu calls down a thunderbolt that creates a shockwave of damage around itself while damaging anyone in its way. Unlike Pikachu, Pichu's Thunder can be charged up, increasing both its damage and recoil damage should it land a hit.
  • Final Smash - Volt Tackle: Pichu curls up into a ball of electricity, before flying around the stage recklessly.
Pichu retains its previous entrance animation, but its victory theme is now that of a Trainer battle being won in Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver.

Mewtwo

Mewtwo SSBUltimate

MewtwoHeadSSBU
SSB Pokémon Series

Created by Team Rocket through modified Mew DNA, Mewtwo would later break out of the lab and seek a purpose of its own. Mewtwo is a floaty character with a great combo game and KOing options, but is easily knocked around by attacks and can't escape pressure easily.

  • Neutral Special - Shadow Ball: Mewtwo charges up a dark sphere before throwing it forward.
  • Side Special - Confusion: Mewtwo creates a ripple of psychic energy before itself, dealing minor damage but also spinning opponents before it and reflecting projectiles.
  • Up Special - Teleport: Mewtwo disappears before reappearing in the direction the analog stick was pushed in.
  • Down Special - Disable: Mewtwo kneels down before emitting a spark of energy from its eyes towards an opponent, stunning them. Difficult to land.
  • Final Smash - Psystrike: Mewtwo evolves into Mega Mewtwo Y before shooting a massive sphere of psychic energy forward.
Mewtwo retains its previous entrance animation, but its victory theme is now that of a Pokémon being caught in Pokémon Red and Blue, and it also gets two new costumes: Shadow Mewtwo from Pokkén Tournament, and Mewtwo's robotic suit from the Pokémon anime.

Torterra

Torterra Stock Icon
SSB Pokémon Series

Torterra is the fully evolved form of Turtwig, one of the Sinnoh region's starters. A Grass and Ground type, Torterra is often mistaken for a moving forest, and some Pokémon even end up living on its back their whole life.

In Super Smash Bros. GR, Torterra is a super heavyweight who excels in sheer damage and knockback output. Torterra's bulk allows it to resist knockback, and in return punish with heavy damage. Wood Hammer is by far one of the strongest attacks in the game, dealing massive damage and knockback, and Torterra can also utilize Stealth Rocks to attack faraway opponents. Torterra excels immensely in meteor smashing however, with two of its special moves and most of its aerials being great for this and granting it excellent edgeguarding tools.

However, Torterra is slow and can have trouble moving along the stage. Its recovery is also unimpressive, and doesn't cover much distance. Torterra also suffers from end lag on its hardest-hitting moves and can be an easy target due to its size.

Overall, Torterra is by far the most extreme of the game's super heavyweights, dishing out lots of damage but having trouble getting around.

  • Neutral Special - Wood Hammer: Torterra charges up an attack before slamming forward with a rugged tackle. This move can meteor smash and bury opponents, but has quite a bit of lag associated with it.
  • Side Special - Stealth Rock: Torterra produces floating rocks before it that home in on a nearby opponent.
  • Up Special - Rock Climb: Torterra ascends along a pile of boulders, with these boulders damaging enemies they fall on top of.
  • Down Special - Earthquake: Torterra slams the ground around it, pushing opponents away whilst dealing damage. Meteor smashes or buries opponents Torterra lands on, depending on whether they are in the air or above the ground.
  • Final Smash - Bloom Doom: Torterra gathers energy from plants before letting loose a growth of them in front of it in massive columns, dishing out heavy damage and knockback to those it hits.
Torterra's entrance animation has it emerge from a Poké Ball, and it victory theme is shared with the other Pokémon characters. Torterra also has an alternate costume depicting various Sinnoh-native Pokémon on its back.

Ness

NessHeadSSBU
SSB EarthBound Series

The boy who stopped Giygas, Ness is a versatile user of PSI. A lightweight with an amazing grab game and access to projectiles, but has one of the worst recoveries in the game and subpar mobility.

  • Neutral Special - PK Flash: Ness creates a green ball of energy above him that explodes should it hit a target.
  • Side Special - PK Fire: Ness shoots a small lightning bolt-shaped projectile forward, which creates a miniature pillar of fire should it hit an opponent.
  • Up Special - PK Thunder: Ness creates a stream of lightning that can be aimed at opponents. Should he hit himself with it, he'll fly in that direction.
  • Down Special - PSI Magnet: Ness creates a bubble of energy around himself which allows him to absorb energy-based projectiles and heal himself in the process.
  • Final Smash - PK Starstorm: Ness calls upon Paula and Poo before unleashing a flurry of meteors across the stage.
Ness retains his previous victory theme and entrance animation.

Captain Falcon

CaptainFalconHeadSSBU
SSB F-Zero Series

Captain Falcon is both a bounty hunter and an F-Zero pilot, and said to be one of the greatest. He's among the fastest characters in the game while also possessing excellent power, but is susceptible to combos.

  • Neutral Special - Falcon Punch: Captain Falcon lets loose his signature punch. It can be reversed up to four times now, and can break shields instantly if reversed the maximum number of times.
  • Side Special - Raptor Boost: Captain Falcon dashes forward before following with an uppercut. Meteor smashes airborne opponents as well as foes beneath Captain Falcon.
  • Up Special - Falcon Dive: Captain Falcon leaps upward, attempting to grab an opponent. If he does, they're hit with an explosion and he can use the move again without being helpless.
  • Down Special - Falcon Kick: Captain Falcon rockets forward with a kick. If used in the air, it goes diagonally and will cause a small shockwave upon landing.
  • Final Smash - Blue Falcon: The Blue Falcon hits anyone in front of Captain Falcon, before teleporting them to an F-Zero track. From there, Captain Falcon runs them over in the Blue Falcon for major damage and knockback.
Captain Falcon retains his previous victory theme and entrance animation, but now has an alternate costume resembling his appearance in the original F-Zero.

Lucinaε

Lucina SSBUltimate

MarthHeadSSBU
SSB Fire Emblem Series

Lucina is an ECHO of MarthHeadSSBU MARTH.

The daughter of Chrom and the future princess of Ylisse, Lucina travelled back in time to prevent a doomed future, taking up the mantle of "Marth" to disguise her true identity. She acts as Marth's Echo Fighter, retaining the same moveset, but with one major difference: she lacks the tipper of Marth's sword. Because of this, Lucina's non-tip attacks hit harder than Marth's, but her tip attacks are worse than his. You could say this is a double-edged sword. In general however, Lucina functions as an easier-to-play version of Marth.

  • Neutral Special - Shield Breaker: Lucina charges up in a readying stance before unleashing a full-power sword strike forward. This attack deals massive damage to shields, and can even break them instantly at full charge!
  • Side Special - Dancing Blade: Lucina performs a sequence of sword slashes forward, with each slash capable of being altered via directional inputs to hit lower or higher.
  • Up Special - Dolphin Slash: Lucina performs a sword slash upwards as she ascends.
  • Down Special - Counter: Lucina assumes a readying stance and retaliates against incoming attacks. The more powerful the incoming attack, the stronger Lucina hits.
  • Final Smash - Critical Hit: Lucina raises the Falchion high into the air before lunging forward, attacking the first person she hits with immense damage and knockback, enough to one-hit KO.
Lucina retains her previous victory theme and on-screen appearance.

Chrom is an ECHO of RoyHeadSSBU ROY.

Prince of Ylisse and the father of Lucina, Chrom led the force known as the Shepherds to protect his home. He acts as Roy's Echo Fighter, retaining a similar moveset and characteristics. However, Chrom not only lacks the hilt sweetspot, but also uses Aether as his up special instead of Blazer, providing a different style of playing as Roy.

  • Neutral Special - Strong Blade: Chrom allows the Falchion to be surrounded by wind as he charges it up, before slamming it down. Can one-hit KO when fully charged, but inflicts recoil damage.
  • Side Special - Double-Edge Dance: Chrom performs a sequence of sword swings forward, with each swing capable of being altered via directional inputs to hit lower or higher.
  • Up Special - Aether: Chrom throws his sword into the air before leaping up to it and slamming down onto the ground. A powerful recovery move if used correctly, but can be risky at times!
  • Down Special - Counter: Chrom assumes a readying stance and retaliates against incoming attacks. The more powerful the incoming attack, the stronger Chrom hits.
  • Final Smash - Awakening Aether: Chrom lunges forward with his sword, trapping anyone he hits. From there, he then lunges forward with another sword strike alongside an altered camera angle, sending his enemies flying.
Chrom retains his victory theme and on-screen appearance from Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.

The player's avatar in Fire Emblem Awakening, Robin is a powerful user of swords and magic. His tome and Levin Sword mechanic allows for a strong zoning game, but once they're used up he can be in trouble. This time however, Robin's tomes and sword last longer, making him stronger as a whole.

  • Neutral Special - Thunder: Robin casts thunder magic from its respective tome. The move can go through four stages: Thunder, a fast, short-ranged spark, Elthunder, a stronger ball of lightning with more range, Arcthunder, a gradually accelerating sphere that hits multiple times, and Thoron, which is a massive beam with immense range, speed, and power.
  • Side Special - Arcfire: Robin shoots a small fireball from his Arcfire tome that travels diagonally downward and creates a small pillar flame upon impact.
  • Up Special - Elwind: Robin uses his Elwind tome to cast two blades of wind below him, allowing him to ascend. The first hit can meteor smash opponents directly below him.
  • Down Special - Nosferatu: Robin casts Nosferatu on a nearby target, damaging them while healing him as he holds them in place with magic. Cannot be shielded against due to its grab properties.
  • Final Smash - Pair Up: Robin summons Tharja via warp magic to aid him against the opponents he initially slashes upwards into the air. From there, the duo repeatedly attack his enemies before unleashing a strike together that dishes out major damage and knockback. The Final Smash also replenishes Robin's tomes and Levin Sword.
Robin retains his male and female alternate costumes, along with the same on-screen appearance and victory theme.

The Game & Watch series has a wide variety of portable games to it, and Mr. Game & Watch embodies almost all of them. He's a lightweight with exceptional combo and air games, along with good recovery and mobility, but is easily hit around by attacks and lacks range.

  • Neutral Special - Chef: Mr. Game & Watch flips food out of a frying pan in varying arcs.
  • Side Special - Judge: Mr. Game & Watch pulls out a hammer, striking opponents in front of him as a number appears above. Each number has a different effect, with the 9 having the strength of a Home-Run Bat!
  • Up Special - Fire: Mr. Game & Watch jumps out of a trampoline before descending via parachute.
  • Down Special - Oil Panic: Mr. Game & Watch brings out a bucket capable of absorbing energy-based projectiles. When the bucket is full, it can be emptied for an extremely powerful attack.

Mr. Game & Watch retains his previous entrance animation and victory theme.

Dark Pit

Dark Pit SSBU

DarkPitHeadSSBU
SSB Kid Icarus Series

Created after Pit destroyed the Mirror of Truth, Dark Pit acts as the angel's main rival, with a more serious attitude. Due to him using his staff in a majority of his attacks, Dark Pit is no longer Pit's Echo Fighter, but more of a semiclone with better range but worse attack power.

  • Neutral Special - Staff Blast: Dark Pit fires a beam forwards from his staff. Has a greater variety of angles than the Palutena Bow, but lacks power as a result.
  • Side Special - Electroshock Arm: Pit lunges forward with the Electroshock Arm, performing a swift uppercut. The attack can reflect projectiles and has super armor, and launches opponents at a different angle than the Upperdash Arm while also hitting harder.
  • Up Special - Power of Flight: Pit soars through the air a significant distance. Travels further than Pit's but doesn't deal damage.
  • Down Special - Guardian Orbitars: Pit produces two Guardian Orbitars on either side of him, which will reflect projectiles and block melee attacks, though they can be broken.
  • Final Smash - Dark Pit Staff: Dark Pit fires a massive blast of energy from his staff forward a massive distance. Anyone caught in the shot are sent flying diagonally, and take more damage the closer they are to Dark Pit.
Dark Pit retains his previous entrance animation and victory theme.

Louie (alt) - Pikmin 2

LouieStock
SSB Pikmin Series

Louie is an ECHO of OlimarHeadSSBU OLIMAR.

An employee of Hocotate Freight, Louie was singlehandedly responsible for the company's debt due to an...incident he caused, to say the least. He'd venture to PNF-404 alongside Olimar to raise enough funds to save the company, working alongside the native Pikmin to do so. Louie would also be captured by the immense Titan Dweevil, and would also interact with the Koppaite explorers visiting PNF-404.

In Super Smash Bros. GR, Louie acts as Olimar's Echo Fighter, retaining many of his animations and attacks. Louie does possess a few differences from Olimar, in that he can only pluck Rock Pikmin and Bulbmin, both of which are not only more durable, but also only hit once for a set amount of damage. While this provides consistency with damage and prevents the issue of enemies defeating Pikmin mid-attack, Louie lacks damage potential because of this. Louie can also throw his Pikmin downwards when using Winged Pikmin, providing a method of meteor smashing opponents along with loosening the load and allowing him to fly farther. Louie's attacks in general also hit a bit harder than Olimar's, but come out slower to compensate.

Overall, Louie, while close to Olimar in many regards, is more focused around consistent damage and utility instead of sheer power and mobility. Players who seek to play as Louie will moreso be focusing on knocking away opponents with their Pikmin and dropping Pikmin as part of their air game.

  • Neutral Special - Pikmin Pluck: Louie plucks four Pikmin, who then proceed to follow him. However, unlike, Olimar, Louie can only pluck Rock Pikmin and Bulbmin, who are both more durable than most of Olimar's Pikmin types, but Louie doesn't pluck Pikmin as fast as Olimar.
  • Side Special - Pikmin Throw: Louie throws one of his Pikmin. Due to them being both Rock Pikmin and Bulbmin, they will instead simply deal damage on impact, providing consistency but lacking sheer damage output. Rock Pikmin deal more damage than Bulbmin, but Bulbmin are thrown faster.
  • Up Special - Winged Pikmin: Two Winged Pikmin will pick up Louie and fly him upwards. While any Pikmin Louie is carrying will weigh him down, he can drop his Pikmin on opponents beneath him by pressing the grab button while in flight. Dropped Pikmin are capable of meteor smashing.
  • Down Special - Pikmin Order: Louie orders for his Pikmin to return to him. Unlike Olimar, Louie's Pikmin Order will change the direction nearby opponents are facing, similar to Mario's Cape, but in doing so, Louie is left vulnerable.
  • Final Smash - Bulborb Attack: Louie whistles, bringing any nearby opponents into a forest. From there, a Bulborb emerges and attacks them, dealing heavy damage and knockback.
Louie shares a victory theme with Olimar, and his entrance animation depicts him arriving via the Hocotate ship.

R.O.B. is a heavyweight with amazing aerial game and recovery potential, but suffers in regards to his ground game and susceptibility to combos.

  • Neutral Special - Robo Beam: R.O.B. fires a laser beam forward which charges up as the battle goes on. Travels faster than it did before.
  • Side Special - Arm Rotor: R.O.B. spins his arms around his torso, dealing big damage to anyone he collides with, concluding with an uppercut.
  • Up Special - Robo Burner: R.O.B. activates his thrusters in order to fly. Unlike other up specials, Robo Burner is dependent on fuel to fly (which recharges over time), but doesn't cause helplessness.
  • Down Special - Gyro: R.O.B. charges a spinning top on his base, before shooting it forward. The Gyro can be picked up and thrown like an item as well, giving it zoning potential.
  • Final Smash - Super Diffusion Beam: R.O.B. reconfigures his body into a cannon-like form before firing off a massive laser that fans out into smaller ones, before ending with a massive laser blast that deals heavy damage and knockback.
R.O.B. now has palette swaps resembling the Nintendo GameCube, Wii, and Nintendo Switch, and retains his previous entrance animation and victory theme.

Amy

Sonic Boom Amy Rose by cheril59-d8nwzss

Amy Rose Stock Icon
SSB Sonic Series

In most timelines, Amy Rose is known for her constant admiration of Sonic to the point where it can sometimes come off as creepy. However, this incarnation of the pink hedgehog is not only tougher, but also has a more...complex relationship with him to say the least. Nevertheless, Amy is a heroine who will defend the world with her trusty hammer at her side.

In Super Smash Bros. GR, Amy is a fast middleweight who uses her trusty hammer as a major part of her moveset, and draws upon her appearance in the Sonic Boom subfranchise of the Sonic series. It offers a disjointed hitbox that can be used to approach enemies, and hits quite hard. Amy also benefits from being able to use a tether grab with the Enerbeam, and has great aerials and air speed.

However, Amy is quite frail and knocked around easily, not to mention that many of her ground attacks have a lot of ending lag due to the weight of the hammer. Amy's hammer also has trouble breaking shields and dealing with defensive opponents, requiring precise strikes. Her attacks also generally don't combo into each other, making her better for single, powerful strikes.

Overall, Amy is a powerful character who needs to plan out when exactly to hit.

  • Neutral Special - Spin Hammer: Amy charges up before spinning around with her hammer. This move can be used to cover distance in the air, but is better-suited to racking up damage.
  • Side Special - Transform Terrain: Amy smashes her hammer into the ground in front of her, causing several small platforms to rise out of the ground and damage anyone in their way. However, in the air, this move serves as a powerful meteor smash!
  • Up Special - Hammer Jump: Amy springs off of her hammer and uses it to leap into the air
  • Down Special - Hammer Counter: Amy braces herself for an attack. If she's hit during this time period, she slams her hammer straight down, damaging and burying the opponent and allowing for followups.
  • Final Smash - Team Sonic: Amy lets loose a hammer strike in front of her that, if it connects, sends the enemies hit to a jungle where Amy looms over them alongside the Sonic Boom incarnations of Sonic, Tails, and Knuckles. From there, the group attacks Amy's enemies before she finishes them with a powerful hammer strike.
Amy's entrance animation has her leaping onto the battlefield with her hammer, and her victory theme is a snippet of the main theme of Sonic Boom: Rise of Lyric.

Shadowε

75 - Shadow

Shadow Stock
SSB Sonic Series

Shadow is an ECHO of SonicHeadSSBU SONIC.

Created as the "Ultimate Life Form" by Gerald Robotnik using the DNA of Black Doom, Shadow the Hedgehog was made in an teempt to find a cure for incurable deadly diseases, but was captured and put into stasis by the military when deemed as a threat. Fifty years later, Dr. Eggman would release him to aid with a plan to conquer the world, but would end up saving it alongside Sonic the Hedgehog. The two of them would become fast rivals, clashing from time to time and working together occasionally. He'd also join up with Team Dark, and eventually be the one to defeat the Black Arms.

In Super Smash Bros. GR, Shadow acts as Sonic's Echo Fighter, retaining the same basic moves, animations, and properties. However, Shadow exemplifies the idea of Echo Fighters being able to take special moves from existing characters, swapping out two of his special moves. While these do make him play differently from Sonic, he's still an echo due to none of his other attacks being changed. However, Shadow has differing idle animations, and skates instead of running.

While Shadow's differences from Sonic aren't that apparent, he still plays differently from him and provides an alternate playstyle of sorts.

  • Neutral Special - Homing Attack: Shadow homes in on an enemy before attacking them in a spherical form. Hits harder than Sonic's, but has a longer startup animation.
  • Side Special - Motorcycle: Shadow rides his motorcycle forward, akin to Wario's, damaging anyone in his way. However, Shadow's motorcycle is faster but more fragile than Wario's.
  • Up Special - Double Spring: A spring immediately appears below Shadow and shoots him up a great distance. The move can be used twice while in the air, but each spring doesn't cover as much distance as Sonic's.
  • Down Special - Chaos Control: Shadow attempts to utilize Chaos Control. If hit, it will activate, slowing down the opponent dramatically for five seconds and leaving them open to attack. Unlike Bayonetta's Witch Time, Chaos Control is harder to land, but slows down the opponent for longer.
  • Final Smash - Chaos Blast: Shadow unleashes a massive sphere of Chaos energy around him, damaging and knocking back anyone it hits.
The Shadow Android appears as an alternate costume, Shadow Spin Dashes onto the stage in his entrance animation, and his victory theme is that of a level being cleared in Shadow the Hedgehog.

Isabelle

Isabelle SSBUltimate

IsabelleHeadSSBU
SSB Animal Crossing Series

An ever-helpful assistant, Isabelle brings a variety of helpful objects and items into the battle! She plays similarly to Villager, but brings a lot of unique abilities to the table.

  • Neutral Special - Pocket: Isabelle grabs a nearby projectile or item, stowing it away; using the move again will release the projectile or item with greatly increased damage and knockback. Unlike Villager, Isabelle's variant can store things for longer, but they don't have as much power.
  • Side Special - Fishing Rod: Isabelle throws out a fishing rod that can grab enemies, dealing damage on impact. From there, she can throw them aside.
  • Up Special - Balloon Trip: Isabelle gets on a swing with balloons attached to it, allowing her to fly briefly. The balloons can be popped however!
  • Down Special - Lloid Mine: Isabelle plants a Lloid in the ground, which can be remotely detonated to send one flying into the air.
  • Final Smash - Public Works Project: Isabelle starts barking out orders for a building to be constructed on the stage as various villagers come and construct it, trapping enemies inside it and damaging them. Once it's finished, the building explodes, dishing out heavy damage and knockback to those it trapped.
Digby appears as a palette swap for Isabelle, and she retains her previous victory theme and entrance animation.

Tora

Tora

Tora Stock
SSB Xenoblade Series

Tora always wanted to be a Driver. However, after failing to resonate with a Core Crystal, he turned to building an artificial Blade, Poppi, instead. Tora would later join the salvager Rex and his Blade Pyra to reach the World Tree Elysium.

In Super Smash Bros. GR, Tora is focused around defending himself. Despite his small frame, he can disable and confuse enemies while dishing out heavy damage. His Drill Shield is a perfect tool for combos, and Tora can make deadly use of it. What's most unique about this Nopon however is his Rigid Shield move, which acts differently from other counters in that it stuns foes instead of damaging them. Tora also benefits from his rolls covering more distance than other characters, further heightening his defensive game. With these tools, Tora can initiate combos easily and effectively.

However, Tora is not flawless. He has poor frame data when it comes to his attacks, with many of them coming out quite late. Tora is also lacking in regards to his recovery, as while it's good for vertical distance, it can't cover much horizontal distance. Last but not least, Tora's Rigid Shield works differently from other counters in that it only protects the front, so he's still vulnerable from behind.

As a whole, Tora is a defensively-oriented character who excels in combos and self-defense, but suffers in regards to a unique counter mechanic and slow-hitting attacks.

  • Neutral Special - Big Boost: Tora slams forward. If he hits a target, they're knocked to the ground immediately, while in the air, they're forced into a state of helplessness!
  • Side Special - Spinning Cutter: Tora spins his Drill Shield around himself. In the air, it will slow his fall.
  • Up Special - Steady Drill: Tora uses his Drill Shield to ascend upward, hitting anyone in his way. The move can be angled in any direction of your choice.
  • Down Special - Rigid Shield: Tora puts his Drill Shield in front of him as a counter. When an enemy hits him while he's shielding, Tora will stun them briefly instead of dealing damage like other counters.
  • Final Smash - Noponic Storm: Tora calls upon his blade, Poppi α, to unleash a vortex of ether from her body, trapping enemies and dealing damage. After some time, the ether vortex will dissipate and opponents will be sent flying.
Tora from Xenoblade Chronicles X appears as an alternate costume, Tora's entrance animation has him jumping onto the stage, and his victory music is a snippet of the battle theme from Xenoblade Chronicles 2.

Ryu

Ryu SSBL

RyuHeadSSBU
SSB Street Fighter Series

The main character of the Street Fighter series, Ryu has returned to Smash once again. His attacks have two variants: a button tap variant, and a button hold variant, essentially granting him two movesets. In general, he's retained his powerful combo game and resilent recovery, not to mention that he always faces his opponent in a 1 on 1 fight, but still suffers in regards to his approach and mobility. This time around however, Ryu's biggest change is that his button inputs are more forgiving in regards to timing, making it easier to take advantage of his moveset.

  • Neutral Special - Hadoken: Ryu tosses forward a Hadoken, a giant fireball. Two other variants can be performed via button combos as well.
  • Side Special - Tatsumaki Senpukyaku: Ryu performs a jumping, spinning kick in the direction he's facing. Good for recovery and racking up damage.
  • Up Special - Shoryuken: Ryu performs a leaping uppercut that deals damage to anyone in his way while providing a method of recovering.
  • Down Special - Focus Attack: Ryu assumes a focused stance briefly, before landing a massive punch that stuns opponents briefly while dealing damage, allowing for followups.
  • Final Smash - Shin Shoryuken / Shinku Hadoken: Uniquely, Ryu's Final Smash varies depending on how close he is to his opponent. Up close, the three-hit Shin Shoryuken combo is used, which can KO at specific percentages, while if he's at a distance, the giant Shinki Hadoken is tossed forward, which can vacuum in opponents.
Ryu retains his previous victory theme and on-screen appearance.

Ken

Ken SSBUltimate

KenHeadSSBU
SSB Street Fighter Series

Ken is an ECHO of RyuHeadSSBU RYU.

Ken is a rival of Ryu hailing from the United States, and serves as Ryu's Echo Fighter. However, Ken is a bit faster but more vulnerable to attacks.

  • Neutral Special - Hadoken: Ken tosses forward a Hadoken, a giant fireball. Two other variants can be performed via button combos as well.
  • Side Special - Tatsumaki Senpukyaku: Ken performs a jumping, spinning kick in the direction he's facing. Good for recovery and racking up damage.
  • Up Special - Shoryuken: Ken performs a leaping, flaming uppercut that deals damage to anyone in his way while providing a method of recovering.
  • Down Special - Focus Attack: Ken assumes a focused stance briefly, before landing a massive kick that stuns opponents briefly while dealing damage, allowing for followups.
  • Final Smash - Shinryuken / Shippu Jinraikyaku: Just like Ryu, Ken's Final Smash varies depending on how close he is to his opponent. Up close, the flurry of kicks known as Shippu Jinraikyaku is used, while from a distance a pillar of flame with massive vertical range known as Shinryuken is used.
Ryu retains his previous victory theme and on-screen appearance.

Bayonetta

Bayonetta SSBUltimate

BayonettaHeadSSBU
SSB Bayonetta Series

One of the last Umbra Witches alive, Bayonetta is a master of the Bullet Arts and capable of summoning Infernal Demons to her side. She retains her powerful combo game due to the use of Bullet Arts to fire bullets after attacking, but due to her overwhelming power in previous titles, many of Bayonetta's attacks don't KO until later and various other aspects of her moveset have been tweaked to lower her power, but make her capable of contending with other characters at the same time.

  • Neutral Special - Bullet Climax: Bayonetta fires bullets at a slight angle. When held, Charge Bullets are fired instead, which are stronger but only affect the first two shots.
  • Side Special - Heel Slide: Bayonetta performs a kick that slides opponents forward on the ground, and hits in a more straightforward way in the air as the After Burner Kick. This move is Bayonetta's main tool to start combos.
  • Up Special - Witch Twist: Bayonetta ascends upwards in a corkscrew fashion, dealing damage and travelling a short distance. Causes helplessness after the second twist.
  • Down Special - Witch Time: Bayonetta slows down time for anyone who hits her during the animation, allowing her to counterattack them herself. If nobody attacks her, Bat Within is used instead, which allows Bayonetta to teleport a short distance while halving damage taken during that time.
  • Final Smash - Infernal Climax: Bayonetta activates a stage-wide Witch Time effect. From there, she has a limited amount of time to dish out damage to opponents to fill up a Climax Gauge. Once filled, dealing knockback to an opponent activates a cutscene where Gomorrah emerges to attack the opponent viciously, instantly KOing anyone at 100% or higher.
Bayonetta retains her previous victory theme and entrance animation.

Richter

Richter SSBUltimate

RichterHeadSSBU
SSB Castlevania Series

Richter is an ECHO of SimonHeadSSBU SIMON.

Another Belmont vampire hunter, Richter battled with both Dracula and his son Alucard. He acts as Simon's Echo Fighter in Super Smash Bros. GR, retaining the same moveset but having varying properties and aesthetic changes. Unlike Ultimate however, Richter's whip doesn't go as far as Simon's, but deals more damage to compensate.

  • Neutral Special - Axe: Richter tosses an axe in front of him in an arc. Good for attacking airborne opponents and can even pierce through them.
  • Side Special - Cross: Righter throws a cross forward like a boomerang, which can pierce through opponents.
  • Up Special - Uppercut: Richter leaps upward with his fist. Starts up quicker than a lot of his moves, but lacks range as a result.
  • Down Special - Holy Water: Richter throws a flask of Holy Water at the ground before him, which will create a pillar of flames that can damage opponents. Unlike Simon, Richter's Holy Water is blue.
  • Final Smash - Grand Cross: A large coffin appears before Richter, trapping nearby fighters in it. From there, he tosses it up into the air with his whip as multiple energy-formed crosses hit the coffin.
Richter retains his victory theme and on-screen appearance from Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.

Dillon

DillonSSBV

DillonStock
Dillon-Symbol

When several villages came under attack by the rocklike Grocks, Dillon answered the call and beat them back. As a ranger, he sought to protect the towns to make a living, and would continue to do battle against the Grocks for some time.

In Super Smash Bros. GR, Dillon is a character known for his impressive reach and mobility. With Charge Attack and Gatling Gun, Dillon can easily approach opponents and rack up damage. He boasts an impressive neutral game thanks to these two moves along with fast-hitting normal attacks, and excellent throws. His recovery is also great, and can even double as a means of dishing out damage.

However, Dillon's biggest flaw is the large amounts of ending lag on his attacks. His playstyle doesn't leave much room for error, requiring him to analyze when exactly to land an attack and utilize mindgames. His air game is also lackluster due to some of his specials acting differently in the air, not to mention poor air speed.

Overall, Dillon is a ground-oriented fighter who hits hard, but needs to make his moves carefully.

  • Neutral Special - Charge Attack: Dillon curls up into a ball and fires up his boosters for as long as the button is held down, before rolling at an opponent when it's released. Opponents he hit are damaged by a flurry of attacks unless they are airborne, in which case the move only hits once.
  • Side Special - Gatling Gun: Dillon pulls out a gatling gun similar to those seen in the towers of his home game, firing off a volley of shots that stun opponents briefly. Good for racking up damage, but has a bit of ending lag.
  • Up Special - Jump Pad: A jump pad appears below Dillon as he curls up into a ball and leaps onto it, hitting anyone in his way.
  • Down Special - Exhaust Smash: Dillon charges up for a punch to the ground using his boosters, sending a shockwave around him. In the air, the move will send Dillon straight down, but can meteor smash.
  • Final Smash - Dead-Heat Breaker: Dillon charges forward, trapping anyone he hits in a cutscene where he runs right into them on a desert road at full speed, dishing out massive damage and knockback.
Dillon's entrance animation has him rolling onto the stage, and his victory theme is a snippet of the main theme of Dillon's Rolling Western.

The Lost Vikings

Lostvikings

Lost Vikings Stock
SSBLostVikingsSymbol

The Lost Vikings, known as (from left to right) Baelog, Olaf, and Erik, once lived fruitful lives until they were kidnapped by Tomator, emperor of the Alien Croutonian Empire, for his intergalactic Arena of Death. However, the ship they were taken in malfunctioned, sending the trio through all sorts of wacky locations on their way home. Eventually, they'd also take on Tomator a second time, and even gain the help of the dragon Scorch and the werewolf Fang.

In Super Smash Bros. GR, the Lost Vikings are the perfect example of "easy to play, tricky to master". All three Vikings will be out on the field at once, with their down special, Select Viking, used to switch while on the ground, and two of their taunts reserved to either group up the Vikings, or split them apart. The biggest advantage the Lost Vikings have is their ability to cover a large area on the stage and easily attack opponents. They are also capable of utilizing a pseudo chain grab to toss enemies between them, allowing them to rack up damage quickly.

However, the Lost Vikings possess some vital weaknesses. On their own, they don't deal much damage and are easy to knock around, forcing you to use all three. The Vikings also possess the steepest learning curve in the game, with a single mistake potentially costing a stock. Their recovery is also fairly mediocre, and if the Viking you're controlling dies, then the uncontrolled ones will also go. Losing Vikings you aren't in control of also limits your options. Their special moves are also only used by the Viking in control, save for Norse Force.

Overall, the Lost Vikings are an unorthodox character capable of taking on enemies three-on-one, but falter in regards to a learning curve and fighting solo. Players looking to master them will have a lot of practice they'll need to go through.

  • Neutral Special - Scorch: The dragon known as Scorch emerges and fires off a large fireball. The fireball can be angled as well, allowing you to hit aerial targets.
  • Side Special - Fang: The werewolf known as Fang slashes forward, much like Zelda's Phantom. The attack can be charged for more power, and if it collides with an uncontrolled Viking, they'll be punted forward and deal damage on impact.
  • Up Special - Spin to Win: The Viking being controlled performs an upward spin attack that gains altitude.
  • Down Special - Varies: The Lost Vikings' down special varies depending on whether they're on the ground or airborne:
    • On the ground, Select Viking is used, where you'll swap over to another Viking depending on which direction the analog stick is tilted in.
    • In the air, Norse Force is used, in which each Viking will produce a barrier around themselves that will destroy incoming projectiles. The barrier eventually disappears.
  • Final Smash - Longboat Raid: The Viking being controlled lunges forward at his enemies, before sending them into a cinematic cutscene with all three Vikings in a giant longboat. The longboat fires cannons at the Vikings' enemies, culminating in a massive cannon blast to finish them off.
The Lost Vikings' victory theme is the level clear theme from their debut game, and their entrance animation has them arriving via longboat.

Cynder

Cynder

SpyroSymbol

Cynder is an ECHO of Spyro SPYRO.

Once an enemy of Spyro, Cynder eventually fell for him and joined his side. Her control over dark magic makes her a versatile foe.

In Super Smash Bros. GR, Cynder is Spyro's Echo Fighter, offering a similar, yet different, playstyle. She's generally lighter and faster than Spyro, but as a result lacks power. Her Siren Scream move also allows her to disable and strike at enemies more effectively, at the cost of losing a projectile.

  • Neutral Special - Siren Scream: Cynder lets loose a scream that doesn't damage enemies, but slows them down when caught in the move's radius.
  • Side Special - Jumpstart Charge: Cynder rushes forward with a headbutt that dishes out heavy knockback and damage. In the air, the move will slow Cynder's fall, and her variant of the move has a sweetspot on the horns, but doesn't travel as far.
  • Up Special - Superfly: Cynder soars into the air in a tornado formation, damaging anyone in her way, before going into a glide.
  • Down Special - Headbash: Cynder leaps into the air if groundbound, before rocketing downwards with a headbutt. This move can meteor smash and bury opponents.
  • Final Smash - Dark Aether: Cynder becomes enveloped in dark energy, unleashing a flurry of shadowy fireballs across the stage.
Cynder has the same entrance animation as Spyro, and her victory theme is a snippet of the main theme of The Legend of Spyro: A New Beginning.

Sensei

SenseiSSBGR

SenseiStock
SSB Club Penguin Symbol

On the island of Club Penguin, the card game known as Card-Jitsu is popular. Ninjas train in it across multiple Dojos, with Sensei presiding over it. He created the game after all, and is said to be the master of it.

In Super Smash Bros. GR, Sensei represents the whole of the Club Penguin game as a balanced middleweight who utilizes Card-Jitsu cards to spawn a wide variety of objects to aid him. His attacks as a whole are unique and full of personality, and hit particularly hard. In particular, Sensei has access to great recovery options and damage racking, making him a formidable foe to face.

However, Sensei's greatest weakness is his poor frame data. His attacks come out quite late and can be easily punished. Sensei's attacks are also quite unorthodox and can be tricky to utilize effectively, and the projectile ones are especially vulnerable to reflectors.

Overall, Sensei is a well-rounded character who uses unorthodox attacks, but may be punished projectile-wise.

  • Neutral Special - Sled Racing: Sensei prepares a sled before lunging forward in his Snow robes, dishing out heavy damage.
  • Side Special - Hot Sauce: Sensei equips his Fire robes before shooting hot sauce forward, which can trap opponents in a miniature fire.
  • Up Special - Jetpack: Sensei flies upwards via a jetpack. The direction can be adjusted slightly.
  • Down Special - Catchin' Waves: Sensei equips his Water robes before getting on a surfboard, which creates a wave of water below him that will push himself and enemies upwards.
  • Final Smash - Dojo Sketch: The entire stage turns to black and white as Sensei rides a pencil along the stage, damaging anyone in his way and knocking them around.
Sensei's alternate costumes resemble Rockhopper and Gary from Club Penguin, his entrance animation has him emerge from an explosion of smoke, and his victory theme is that of the gong that plays whenever a game of Card-Jitsu is won.

Kaiden

KaidenX

SSB Ghostverse Series

Born in a village that was raided and destroyed by the krexxon, Kaiden set out on a journey to find out what was truly going on, making some friends along the way and eventually took part in some larger conflicts.

In Super Smash Bros. GR, Kaiden appears as one of three original characters, drawing upon his appearances in Ghostrealm Heroes, Champions of Ascerth 2, and Stampede Breakfast 3: Brunch Time!. He's a versatile middleweight who can use his dual swords effectively to space opponents, and has a special Parry gimmick where opponents slide back a short distance whenever he perfect shields an attack from them.

However, Kaiden's biggest weakness is his poor air game. He's very groundbound and can't fight well offstage, and has poor ground to air transitioning as well. He also can't reliably deal with projectiles besides shooting his own.

Overall, Kaiden is quite a hyperaggressive character, but needs to make sure he stays onstage.

  • Neutral Special - Thunder Blade: Kaiden shoots a blast of electricity forward from his swords that deals decent damage to enemies.
  • Side Special - Ferocious Charge: Kaiden charges a short distance with a sword attack, dishing out decent knockback to those he hits.
  • Up Special - Whirlwind: Kaiden spins around with his swords. In the air, he'll ascend a short distance.
  • Down Special - Power Strike: Kaiden braces for an attack. If hit, he'll unleash an immense strike forward at the enemy.
  • Final Smash - Hyper Mode: Kaiden slashes forwards with his swords, sending whoever he hits to a war-torn battlefield of sorts. From there, he'll go into Hyper Mode and let loose a flurry of attacks with his giant two-handed sword.
Kaiden's original design appears as an alternate costume, his entrance animation has him leap onto the stage with his swords, and his victory theme is a snippet of the main theme of the original Champions of Ascerth.

Volta

Volta

SSB Ghostverse Series

From the age of seventeen, Volta received the ability to manipulate and control machinery, not to mention a vast array of electricity-based powers. She sought to use these powers as a superhero known as the Vyrus, defending the city of Vancouver from all sorts of threats.

In Super Smash Bros. GR, Volta is a character who operates around deceiving and tricking opponents. She's one of the fastest characters when it comes to dodging attacks, and can even perform attacks right out of shield. Volta also possesses unprecendented mobility, allowing her to avoid attacks quickly and bombard opponents with her own, taking advantage of combo-friendly moves.

However, Volta tends to lack KO power at higher percentages, making her weaker in the late game. She's also quite lightweight and can be knocked around easily, as well as being floaty as a whole. Her recovery is also poor, and requires careful usage.

Overall, Volta is a fast-paced fighter who lacks raw power at later percentages. Use her speed to confuse enemies!

  • Neutral Special - Shock Orb: Volta shoots an orb of electricity forward that loops back to her, hitting multiple times.
  • Side Special - Shock Punch: Volta slugs forward an electricity-coated punch that dishes out decent damage and knockback.
  • Up Special - Drone: Volta grabs onto a drone as it pulls her up into the air.
  • Down Special - Killer Roomba: Volta throws a Roomba forward, which will damage enemies in its way before exploding.
  • Final Smash - Overclock: Volta unleashes a flurry of electricity across the entire stage that dishes out big damage and knockback.
Volta's entrance animation has her emerge from code, and her victory theme is a snippet of the main theme of Vyrus.

Felton & Trent

AgentBoaF

SSB Ghostverse Series

These two birds have been best friends since childhood, and have had to endure all sorts of adventures thanks to their teamwork. While initial battles saw Felton and Trent going against a thieving hawk, the arrival of the Circle of Shadows on Wanotori led to them heading to Ascerth, and even beyond to Jalgor!

In Super Smash Bros. GR, Felton and Trent are a duo character, much like the Ice Climbers, with their power coming from the two-in-one mechanic. In general however, Felton and Trent possess an incredible aerial game and can combo into each others' attacks. One bird will always be in the front and can be swapped out via taunting and shielding/airdodging simultaneously, with Felton being faster but weaker, and Trent hitting harder but moving slower. They also get access to a third jump and gliding.

However, Felton and Trent can still be KOed independently of each other, requiring careful defense of the pair. They're also quite floaty and easily knocked around, and lack a proper projectile as well as methods to deal with enemy projectiles.

Overall, Felton and Trent are capable of racking up incredible damage together, but need to watch each others' backs.

  • Neutral Special - Beak Attack: The leading bird pulls back their beak until the button is released, before letting out a flurry of beak attacks at the foe in front.
  • Side Special - Beak Spin: Felton and Trent get into a spinning maneuver together, hitting anyone in their way. The spin can be angled as well.
  • Up Special - Takeoff: Felton and Trent jump high into the air, before getting into a glide. The initial ascent will hit anyone in their way.
  • Down Special - Aerial Dive: Felton and Trent hop into the air a short distance, before crashing down at an angle.
  • Final Smash - Phoenix Form: Felton and Trent transform into their Phoenix forms as they shoot a fireball at opponents in front of them. From there, the duo ravage their foes with countless attacks before unleashing a strike together. After the move is done, both members of the duo will be ready for battle even if one was eliminated earlier.
Felton and Trent's entrance animation has them flying onto the battlefield together before high-fiving, and their victory theme is a snippet of the main theme of Birds of a Feather.

Midbus

625px-Midbus Artwork - Mario and Luigi BiS

SSB Mario Series

A minion of Fawful's, Midbus always obeyed his commands without question, and even formed a rivalry with Bowser. He even gained the powers of ice and snow later on!

In Super Smash Bros. GR, Midbus serves as a semiclone of Bowser, retaining many of his moves, but also having a few unique ones. He's actually even more burly and powerful than Bowser, but lacks range on many of his attacks and is a bit slower.

  • Neutral Special - Ice Roar: Midbus transforms into Blizzard Midbus as he expels ice in front of him. While it deals vicious damage, it loses range much quicker than Bowser's Fire Breath and takes longer to recharge.
  • Side Special - Dash Slam: Midbus lunges forward in an attempt to grab an opponent, before picking them up and belly slamming them into the ground via a jump.
  • Up Special - Wrecking Ball: Midbus ascends into the air as he spins around a giant wrecking ball. Has a bit more range than Whirling Fortress and travels further horizontally, but hits slower and doesn't travel as far vertically.
  • Down Special - Midbus Slam: Midbus leaps into the air before coming crashing down, burying anyone he hits.
  • Final Smash - Snowball Slam: Midbus transforms into Blizzard Midbus as he rolls across the stage on a giant snowball.
Midbus's entrance animation has him leap right onto the stage, and his victory theme is the music played whenever a battle is won in Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story.

Dixie Kong

Dixie Kong SSBGR

SSB Donkey Kong Series

Dixie Kong is an ECHO of DiddyKongHeadSSBU DIDDY KONG.

Diddy Kong's girlfriend, Dixie Kong is just as prominent of an adventurer as him, and has even saved him from the Kremlings once! She tends to fight with her ponytail and can even use it like a helicopter!

In Super Smash Bros. GR, Dixie Kong is Diddy Kong's Echo Fighter, and generally plays as a faster, but more frail, version of her boyfriend. She also has a completely different up special that sacrifices recovery ability for damage.

  • Neutral Special - Gumball Popgun: Dixie shoots a gumball from her Gumball Popgun, which shoots faster but deals less damage than Diddy's peanuts. If the move is charged up for too long, the gun explodes, damaging those around her.
  • Side Special - Monkey Flip: Dixie leaps a short distance, grabbing onto anyone she hits and hitting them repeatedly. Pressing the button mid-leap causes Dixie to kick instead.
  • Up Special - Ponytail Helicopter: Dixie spins her ponytail around, damaging enemies around her. In the air, it covers impressive vertical distance but its horizontal distance isn't as good in comparison.
  • Down Special - Banana Peel: Dixie throws a banana peel behind her, which damages and trips opponents it hits.
  • Final Smash - Tag Team: Dixie whips her ponytail forward as it grabs enemies in front of her. Those she grabs are sent into a river where Dixie and Kiddy Kong hit them in a raft, akin to how the raft could be used to traverse the Northern Kremisphere in Donkey Kong Country 3: Dixie Kong's Double Trouble!
Dixie Kong has the same entrance animation and victory theme as Diddy Kong.

Nogan

CalamityGanondorf

SSB The Legend of Zelda Series

Nogan is an ECHO of GanondorfHeadSSBU GANONDORF.

A reincarnation of Ganondorf, Nogan led the Yiga Clan in a new attempt at conquering Hyrule. It took a battle with that generation's hero to free Nogan of the grasp of Demise.

In Super Smash Bros. GR, Nogan is Ganondorf's Echo Fighter, and is generally lighter and faster than Ganondorf. He also uses an axe instead of a sword for the attacks that used it, and is moreso a bruiser character than a heavyweight. However, Nogan has less range than Ganondorf due to the loss of the Warlock Blade projectile.

  • Neutral Special - Warlock Punch: Nogan charges up a punch before letting it loose, dishing out massive damage and knockback. While stronger than Warlock Blade, it loses the projectile aspect in favor of more power.
  • Side Special - Flame Choke: Nogan lunges forward with dark energy. If he grabs an opponent during the move, they're slammed down to the ground and buried briefly.
  • Up Special - Dark Dive: Nogan leaps upward, causing an explosion if he collides with an opponent, and an uppercut if the initial grab fails.
  • Down Special - Dead Man's Volley: Nogan floats above the ground briefly, damaging adjacent opponents and reflecting projectiles.
  • Final Smash - Calamity: Nogan transforms into Calamity Ganon as the whole stage is enveloped in Malice, before exploding and causing damage to all enemies. The closer you are to Nogan, the harder you'll be hit.
Nogan has the same victory theme as Ganondorf, but has a different entrance animation where he emerges from pure Malice.

Shy Guy

ShyguyCTTT

SSB Yoshi Series

Shy Guys are the most prevalent of footsoldiers used by the Koopa Troop during its early days. Many of them have gone up against Yoshi, and there's all sorts of types of Shy Guys too!

In Super Smash Bros. GR, Shy Guy is a lightweight who draws upon the various subspecies of Shy Guys, much like Piranha Plant. He has a great projectile game, and solid recovery thanks to Fly Guy. He can also avoid attacks easily due to his small hitbox, and is a quite fast too.

However, Shy Guy is quite weak defensively, and easily knocked around by attacks.

  • Neutral Special - Snifit: Shy Guy puts on a Snifit mask as he shoots three tiny cannonballs forward.
  • Side Special - Spear Guy: Shy Guy throws a spear forward at an enemy, dealing damage to them. If the spear manages to hit an enemy, then a wall, the enemy is briefly pinned to the wall!
  • Up Special - Fly Guy: Shy Guy sprouts a propeller as he flies upwards, damaging those above him.
  • Down Special - Shyster: Shy Guy gains a pogo stick as he springs along the ground. If he hits anyone from above, they're buried or meteor smashed depending on their location, and Shy Guy is granted a hefty boost into the air!
  • Final Smash - General Guy: Shy Guy whistles as General Guy appears, who proceeds to fire giant cannonballs into the sky, which rain down on the stage.
Shy Guy has access to alternate costumes resembling Spear Guys, Sergeant Guy from Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story, and the Shy Guy from Mario Party 4, his entrance animation has him pop out of a pipe much like in Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island, and his victory theme is shared with Yoshi.

Yarn Kirby

YarnKirby

Yarnkirbystock
SSB Kirby Series

When Kirby arrived in Patch Land, he became a yarny version of himself. While this meant he couldn't inhale his foes, he did gain access to a variety of other useful moves!

In Super Smash Bros. GR, Yarn Kirby is a semiclone of Kirby who loses access to inhaling enemies for Copy Abilities, as well as multiple midair jumps. To compensate however, Yarn Kirby hits much harder than regular Kirby, and has access to a yarn whip for his neutral special, smash attacks, and tether grab/recovery, which can be controlled freely much like the Belmonts' whips.

  • Neutral Special - Whip Grab: Whip Grab is a command grab that causes Yarn Kirby to pull in an enemy, and bury them behind him. In the air, they're simply thrown backwards a short distance.
  • Side Special - Yarn Hammer: Yarn Kirby charges up a hammer before striking upwards with it. The move has excellent damage and KO power.
  • Up Special - Yarn Cutter: Yarn Kirby ascends upwards with a blade of sorts, before descending and unleashing a shockwave before him.
  • Down Special - Weight: Yarn Kirby rockets downwards in his Weight form. Deals considerable shield damage.
  • Final Smash - Tankbot: Yarn Kirby transforms into a Tankbot, before unleashing a barrage
Prince Fluff appears as an alternate costume for Yarn Kirby, his entrance animation consists of him being "weaved" together, and his victory theme is that of clearing a level in Kirby's Epic Yarn.

Zinnia

Zinnia SSBGR

SSB Pokémon Series

Zinnia is a mysterious Draconid woman who believed fervently that Rayquaza would be the one to save the world from the impending meteorite, not the scientific endeavors of Mossdeep's scientists. To this end, she manipulated events in an attempt to call upon Rayquaza's help, but was forced to change her plans when a young Trainer stopped the impending calamity.

In Super Smash Bros. GR, Zinnia, the first non-Pokémon character to represent the series, and her Whismur Aster form a tag-team character akin to Duck Hunt, being a middleweight with good range and attack power. She can easily rack up damage, and Aster offers disjointed hitboxes. Her special attacks are also unique due to them involving her team of Pokémon.

However, Zinnia lacks KO power on her attacks, making her more well-suited to early game fighting. Her grab range is also a bit short and Aster's pummels, while damaging, aren't that fast. She also falls quite fast and needs to watch out when offstage.

Overall, Zinnia is relatively balanced, and offers a unique playstyle.

  • Neutral Special - Hyper Voice: Aster lets loose a soundwave around Zinnia, damaging and briefly stunning those next to her. The button can be held down to continually emit sound.
  • Side Special - Crunch: Zinnia releases her Tyrantrum from its Poké Ball and lunges forward on its back with a powerful bite. Dishes out heavy knockback and has a sweetspot around Tyrantrum's teeth.
  • Up Special - Air Slash: Zinnia releases her Noivern from its Poké Ball as it flies her into the air. After some time, or if the button is pressed again, Noivern will perform a slashing motion in a direction of choice, nudging Zinnia in that direction as well.
  • Down Special - Dragon Claw: Zinnia releases her Salamence from its Poké Ball as she lunges forward on it. In the air, she shoots down diagonally instead.
  • Final Smash - Dragon Ascent: Zinnia calls for Mega Rayquaza to strike in front of her. Whoever is hit is sent into a meteorite in space, before Zinnia, riding on the back of Mega Rayquaza, slams into the meteor, shattering it in two, and dishing out major damage and knockback.
Zinnia has alternate costumes depicting the uniforms of Team Magma and Team Aqua, her entrance animation has her fly onto the stage via her Salamence, and her victory theme is the music played when a battle is won in Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire.

Ninten

Smash ultimate ninten by shinfurevindo-dch9m7k

SSB EarthBound Series

Ninten is an ECHO of NessHeadSSBU NESS.

The original hero of the Mother series, Ninten was the first to battle Giegue, and in some ways is the progenitor of Ness.

In Super Smash Bros. GR, Ninten serves as Ness's Echo Fighter, and is generally a bit bulkier and harder-hitting than Ness. He also has a completely different up special that is more straightforward than PK Thunder.

  • Neutral Special - PK Flash: Ninten creates a green ball of energy above him that explodes should it hit a target.
  • Side Special - PK Fire: Ninten shoots a small lightning bolt-shaped projectile forward, which creates a miniature pillar of fire should it hit an opponent.
  • Up Special - Teleport: Ninten disappears before reappearing in a direction of choice.
  • Down Special - PSI Magnet: Ninten creates a bubble of energy around himself which allows him to absorb energy-based projectiles and heal himself in the process.
  • Final Smash - PK Starstorm: Ninten calls upon Ana and Teddy as meteors rain down on the stage.
Ninten has the same entrance animation and victory theme as Ness and Lucas.

Captain Rainbow

CaptainRainbowSSBH

Ssbcaptainrainbowicon

A hero from a pretty bad TV show, Captain Rainbow set out to an island that grants wishes, where he'd don his superhero persona again to battle enemies and interact with forgotten Nintendo characters.

In Super Smash Bros. GR, Captain Rainbow is a semiclone of Captain Falcon who has a bit more mobility, but is much more frail. However, he has access to a yo-yo for his smash attacks, akin to Ness's yo-yo, and can make careful use of it to fight.

  • Neutral Special - Rainbow Punch: Captain Rainbow lets loose a rainbow-coated punch. Faster than Falcon Punch, but not as powerful.
  • Side Special - Yo-Yo Boost: Captain Rainbow dives forward, before pushing his yo-yo upwards in an uppercut fashion.
  • Up Special - Rainbow Dive: Captain Rainbow leaps upward, attempting to grab an opponent. If he does, they're hit with an explosion and he can use the move again without being helpless.
  • Down Special - Rainbow Kick: Captain Rainbow rockets forward with a kick. If used in the air, it goes diagonally and will cause a small shockwave upon landing.
  • Final Smash - Forgotten Legends: Captain Rainbow unleashes a punch forward. Those hit are taken to a field where Captain Rainbow attacks them alongside the depictions of Little Mac and Birdo from his debut game, with the former finishing the attack with a belly flop.
Captain Rainbow leaps onto the stage for his entrance animation, and his victory theme is a snippet of the main theme of Captain Rainbow.

Rex

RexPyra

Rex Stock
SSB Xenoblade Series

Once a simple salvager, Rex's life was changed forever when he found Pyra, also known as the Aegis. He'd go on an adventure to bring her to the World Tree Elysium, and even discover her second personality Mythra. Nevertheless, Rex remained stalwart in his beliefs and goals, and formed a group of likeminded allies.

In Super Smash Bros. GR, Rex is a unique middleweight who relies on the Aegis Sword and Pyra, who moves in the background to follow Rex. As Rex uses special moves, he builds up a Blade Combo, shown via a meter next to his name that resembles a diamond. Four successful special attacks will create a Level I Blade Combo, four more make it a Level II Blade Combo, and another four make it a Level III Blade Combo. At any time, Rex can use his neutral special, Blade Combo, to consume his current level for a powerful attack. Rex also possesses great recovery thanks to Anchor Shot, as well as his tether grab, and has some monstrously powerful smash attacks.

However, Rex is quite weak defensively, with his rolls taking longer to perform than other characters. He also has poor frame data when it comes to his aerial attacks, and a poor jump height at that.

Overall, Rex offers a unique "charge and let loose" playstyle, but is best kept to fighting on the ground.

  • Neutral Special - Blade Combo: Rex consumes his current Blade Combo level to unleash an attack, via throwing the Aegis Sword into the air and allowing Pyra to enhance it with her abilities. If the Blade Combo isn't built up to I at least, Rex simply catches the Aegis Sword from the air before slashing forward with it.
    • Rex's Level I Blade Combo is Flame Nova, a horizontal spinning flame slash with a lot of area.
    • Rex's Level II Blade Combo is Prominence Revolt, which creates a giant pillar of flame upward after plunging the Aegis Sword into the ground.
    • Rex's Level III Blade Combo is Burning End, which has the Aegis Sword spin vertically, creating a trapping vortex of fire, before exploding.
  • Side Special - Rolling Smash: Rex charges up before doing a frontflip with the Aegis Sword, slamming it into the ground. The sword slam releases a wave of flame that moves forward afterwards.
  • Up Special - Anchor Shot: Rex aims his Anchor Shot in a specific direction before shooting it forward, moving forward in that direction. If it hits an enemy, they're Toppled and either buried or meteor smashed depending on whether they're on the ground or in the air.
  • Down Special - Double Spinning Edge: Rex charges up before unleashing two fierce sword strikes forward.
  • Final Smash - Sacred Arrow: Pyra transforms into Mythra as she causes beams of light to rain down from the sky, dishing out vicious damage.
Rex leaps onto the stage with the Aegis Sword for his entrance animation, and his victory theme is shared with Tora.

Starkiller

Starkiller

SSB Star Wars Series

An apprentice of Darth Vader, Galen Marek, commonly referred to as Starkiller, was trained as a weapon by Vader. Yet, he eventually rediscovered his Jedi heritage, and stood against Vader and the Empire.

In Super Smash Bros. GR, Starkiller is the first character to be associated with a non-video game series, despite having debuted in a video game. He's a middleweight who utilizes dual lightsabers in battle, with a unique gimmick where his lightsaber attacks will reflect energy-based projectiles. In general, Starkiller has good air game, good frame data, and powerful combos. He also benefits from a long-ranged Force Choke grab akin to the grab range of Marth in Super Smash Bros. Melee, but not as long as a tether grab.

However, Starkiller is not flawless. He has notoriously poor recovery due to the nature of Force Leap, making him a poor character offstage. His Lightsaber Toss move, while powerful, also limits his damage output due to the loss of a weapon. Starkiller's ground speed is also a bit slow as well, and aside from Force Leap, he doesn't have many mobility options.

Overall, Starkiller is a ferocious attacker who needs to be careful when it comes to approaching foes.

  • Neutral Special - Force Lightning: Starkiller unleashes Force lightning in front of him. It hits multiple times and can lock enemies in place, and can also be aimed slightly.
  • Side Special - Lightsaber Toss: Starkiller throws one of his lightsabers forward. He can stall it by holding down the button too, but if you only have one lightsaber on you, your attack power is reduced. Uniquely however, the lightsaber will bounce from enemy to enemy if it manages to land a hit during the initial throw.
  • Up Special - Force Leap: Starkiller leaps upwards with his lightsabers, before crashing down with them. Upon hitting the ground, a small wave of Force energy moves along it.
  • Down Special - Jedi Mind Trick: Starkiller emits a small pulse of Force energy that turns around opponents, and can deflect projectiles.
  • Final Smash - Star Destroyer: Starkiller pulls a Star Destroyer into orbit from space as it devastates the area of the stage he's on.
Each of Starkiller's alternate costumes changes his lightsaber colors, his entrance animation has him jump out of a TIE Fighter, and his victory theme is a snippet of the main Star Wars theme.

Mii Fighters

MiiFightersSSBGR

In addition to the characters above, Mii Fighters can also be created from one of four types: Brawler, Swordfighter, Gunner, and Athlete, with the latter being a new type that draws upon the Wii Sports and Wii Fit titles. Each can choose between three set movesets and is based on an existing Mii, and are either selected through a "Quick Play" option on the character select screen that just has you picking a class and moveset, and a more in-depth interface in the Creation submenu in which a specific Mii and cosmetic clothing can also be chosen.

Stages

Super Smash Bros. GR features a myriad of stages from all five prior Smash games, plus plenty of new ones. All stages have several variants regarding their layouts:

  • Normal Form is simply the "normal" variant.
  • Ω Form is the same as Final Destination, consisting of a single platform above an abyss.
  • Battlefield Form is the same as Battlefield, with three platforms above a larger platform, which in itself is above an abyss.
  • Mega Form is a new form for stages, which creates a larger variant of the stage designed for playing with 5+ people. Depending on the stage, extra platforms might be added, hazards might be removed, or the stage itself simply might be upscaled in size.

Along with these variants, you have the Stage Morph option, retained from Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, in which one stage can transform into another during the match. However, this time, you can set stage "playlists" that will allow the stage to switch between more than two stages during the match. Hazard toggling also returns from Ultimate.

SubspaceGunship
Subspace Gunship
Super Smash Bros. Brawl Logo
SSB Super Smash Bros. Series

This gunship was once used to bring the World of Trophies into Subspace. However, it was subsequently destroyed after a short battle. In GR, the Subspace Gunship is a stage that takes place on the deck of the ship, with a battle taking place overhead. Eventually, the ship will break apart, and you'll be fighting as it falls into the ocean, before being picked up by an Arwing. From there, you'll move from ship to ship as the fleet enters Subspace. However, once you reach Subspace, the process starts over.

Bowserscastle
Bowser's Castle

SSBMarioSymbol

Bowser's Castle was the stronghold of the titular Koopa King during his domination of the Mushroom Kingdom, within the glowing metropolis of Neo Bowser City. In GR, Bowser's Castle is a stage that features two lava pits on both sides of the singular platform. The lava will rise and fall on both sides, impacting your chances of being able to KO opponents.

MushroomKingdomIII SSBGR
Mushroom Kingdom III
Smb3logo
SSBMarioSymbol

Mushroom Kingdom III is the logical next step compared to its predecessors: a stage based on Super Mario Bros. 3. This particular version takes place in several locales: Grass Land, where you'll have the usual setup of blocks and platforms, Water Land, where Boss Bass will leap out of the water in an attempt to swallow fighters whole, Ice Land, where the ground itself is slippery and hard to keep your traction on, and last but not least an airship where you won't have much ground room.

LinelandRoad
Lineland Road
SPMLogo
SSBMarioSymbol

Lineland Road, the first area Mario ventured into to recover the Pure Hearts, is an interesting stage. It has two layouts: a 2D one with a platform with walk-off blast lines and two platforms floating above, and a 3D one featuring a platform with ledges, but only one floating platform above. Every so often the stage will flip between 2D and 3D, so make sure to avoid one of the areas that'll be changing with the flip!

Mario & Luigi were once stuck inside Bowser's body. Now, it's a huge stage, akin to the Great Cave Offensive! Delve into the Trash Pit's pits of liquid, break open carrot chunks in the Gut Check, fight through the shelves in the Memory Bank, and find some...dark threats in the Airway!

MP8Scene
Mario Party
MarioPartyLogo SSBGR
SSBMarioSymbol

Drawing from multiple games in the series, Mario Party is a stage of surprises. Despite having the same layout constantly, it will switch between four aesthetic looks: Mystery Land from Mario Party 2, Castaway Bay from Mario Party 6, Koopa's Tycoon Town from Mario Party 8, and Whomp's Domino Ruins from Super Mario Party. In between transitions, one of several minigames will happen, and winning will give you a random buff for a short period of time:

  • Shy Guy Says from the first Mario Party, where you'll have to perform the action Shy Guy tells you to.
  • The Great Deflate from Mario Party 4, where you'll have to smash inflatable Thwomps with attacks.
  • Pokey Pummel from Mario Party 7, where you need to tear apart Pokeys, but you can fling their segments at other fighters.
  • Beeline Shrine from Mario Party 10, where you need to avoid the bees flying around the stage.
Stormship Stadium

After the finals of the Striker Cup, many of the best teams came to Stormship Stadium. This stage may seem flat, but it tilts often, making the ground an erratic element. What's worse is that lightning will occasionally strike the stage, so watch out!

SSB Donkey Kong Series

100m was the last of the four areas Mario delved into to save Pauline. This stage is a spiritual successor to 75m from Brawl, and features a more simplistic layout with ladders and multiple levels. However, the rivets can be attacked, which will destroy the floors of the stage. Eventually they'll come back up however. The fires that randomly spawn, along with Donkey Kong himself, will also be a problem.
