This page is about Takamaru in the context of Super Smash Bros. Combat only. For the character in other contexts, see Takamaru.

Takamaru is a playable character in Super Smash Bros. Combat, and is unlocked from the start. Takamaru is a Samurai Apprentice who was sent out one day to stop an alien menace. Takamaru is a quick character who wields a katana, and attacks with many tools that the Samurais have at their disposal, as well as weapons he had in game like a fireball and invisibility cloak. Takamaru may be fast and agile, but doesn't have a lot of range with his attacks and he must stay close to an opponents in order to do damage.


  • Standard Special - Shuriken - Takamaru charges up a shuriken in his hand before throwing it at opponents very quickly. The shuriken is smaller than Greninja's, but it is more powerful.
  • Side Special - Fireball - Takamaru throws a slow-moving fireball at opponents that has similar properties to Ness' PK Fire once it hits the ground. The fire can keep opponents in place in addition to doing damage.
  • Up Special - Windmill Swords - Takamaru throws three windmill swords downwards, rising upwards with each thrown. These are the primary part of Takamaru's recovery, as the swords aren't that powerful.
  • Down Special - Invisibility Cloak - Takamaru briefly covers himself with an invisibility cloak, before reappearing and quickly striking with his katana.
  • Final Smash - Inazuma Lightning - Takamaru summons a large bolt of lightning which strikes the middle of the stage, sending any opponents that hit it flying.
