 Tabuu is the former "master" of Subspace who first appeared in Super Smash Bros. Brawl as the game's final boss, and reappears as a playable newcomer in Super Smash Bros. Rebirth. His moves are all based on his appearance in Brawl, and Tabuu now wields a sword called the Subspace Blade. While Tabuu was powerful as a boss, he's been weakened with the arrival of Puppeteer Bowser as revealed in the Story Mode. Tabuu is unlocked by either winning 95 VS/Online matches or clearing Classic Mode as every character.

Trophy description

"Tabuu is the former master of Subspace who threatened the Smashers a long time ago. Since Puppeteer Bowser's arrival as the Hands' new master, Tabuu has been ousted from Subspace and been weakened. He still retains most of his moves from Brawl, along with now carried a specially made sword called the Subspace Blade. It's just interesting to see how weak a deity can become after one simple new master takes over."

Tabuu's trophy is unlocked by unlocking Tabuu himself.
