Jigglypuff, Super Smash Bros.

Jigglypuff (Purin in the Japanese and Korean versions of games) is a character from the Pokémon series. Its first appearance was in Pokémon Red and Pokémon Green. It is a round, pink, ball-like Pokémon that can float through the air for a short time. There is a species of Jigglypuff, and a character Jigglypuff; with the character, Jigglypuff, appearing in the Super Smash Bros. series. In the Pokémon series, Jigglypuff is the evolutionary form of Igglybuff and evolves into Wigglytuff.

Jigglypuff is voiced by Rachael Lillis in English Pokémon media, as well as Super Smash Bros., and Mika Kanai in the original Japanese. This marks it as one of the only few fighters who have an English voice actor, rather than maintaining the same voice in different language settings.


Super Smash Bros. series[edit]

Super Smash Bros.[edit]

Jigglypuff's appearance from Super Smash Bros..
Main article: SmashWiki:Jigglypuff (SSB)

Jigglypuff is first seen in the original Super Smash Bros. Jigglypuff is one of the four unlockable characters, unlocked by beating 1P Game once, and then beating it. Jigglypuff is the lightest playable character; while it has up to five midair jumps, tied with Kirby for the most, Jigglypuff can also be launched the easiest. In addition, when Jigglypuff's shield breaks, it is launched higher into the air than any other character, potentially KOing it.

Jigglypuff's neutral special is Pound, in which it slaps an opponents. Its down special is Sing, which puts nearby opponents to sleep, and its up special is Rest, which sends any opponents close enough flying but puts Jigglypuff to sleep.

Super Smash Bros. Melee[edit]

Jigglypuff returns in Super Smash Bros. Melee, retaining the same position it had in the previous game. Like in the previous game it can be unlocked by clearing 1P Game without continuing. Like other re-introduced characters, Jigglypuff's neutral special move, Pound, was made into its side special move, and its new neutral special move is Rollout, which allows Jigglypuff to charge an attack in which it rolls across the screen.

Super Smash Bros. Brawl[edit]

Main article: SmashWiki:Jigglypuff (SSBB)

In Super Smash Bros. Brawl, Jigglypuff returns as an unlockable character once again. This information was accidentally leaked in an interview with Solid Snake's voice actor David Hayter (when asked what Brawl character he would like to beat up, he replied "Jigglypuff")[citation needed]. Unlike in the past games though, Jigglypuff was one of the last fighters that players would unlock in Brawl (the others being Toon Link and Wolf O'Donnell).

While Jigglypuff's general moveset is unchanged, its Final Smash, Puff Up, Jigglypuff increases in size dramatically, bouncing players off of it at great speed.

The Subspace Emissary[edit]
Jigglypuff's Subspace Emissary intro.

Like Toon Link and Wolf, it makes a rather minor Subspace Emissary appearance, and is the only veteran charcter who does not appear in the main story of the Subspace Emissary. After finding a red door in the Swamp stage, the player will be taken to Pokémon Stadium 2 and fight Jigglypuff in a one-life stock match. Once defeated, it will join the player's party.

Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS / Wii U[edit]

Main article: SmashWiki:Jigglypuff (SSB4)

Jigglypuff returns once again as an unlockable character in Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS, and for the first time as a default playable character Super Smash Bros. for Wii U. It can be unlocked in the Nintendo 3DS version by collecting 30 pieces of equipment, or by winning 120 matches, and is the only playable Pokémon character to be unlockable in the game. All of its moves and its Final Smash from Super Smash Bros. Brawl are kept in this game.

Super Mario Maker[edit]

This section is referring to a subject in an upcoming or recently released game. When the game is released, or more information about this subject is found, this section may need major rewriting. Remove this only when the changes have been applied.

Jigglypuff appears as one of the Costume Mario costumes in Super Mario Maker. Its sprite is based upon the overworld sprite used in the Nintendo DS Pokémon games. Like the other Pokémon costumes, Jigglypuff does not have any altered sound effects.

Profiles and statistics[edit]

Super Smash Bros.[edit]

The Balloon PKMN with the big, round eyes. It sings a soothing melody, sending those that hear it to sleep. When mad, it puffs itself up. As a Balloon PKMN, its body is light, weak, and easy to knock away.

Super Smash Bros. Melee[edit]


# Name Image First Game / Move Description
49 Jigglypuff
Pokémon Red & Blue
This balloon Pokémon invites its opponents in close with its big, round eyes and then puts them to sleep with a soothing lullaby. It puffs itself up when angry, and while it may look adorable, it's not to be trifled with; it knows several powerful techniques. Jigglypuff evolves into Wigglytuff after exposure to a Moon Stone.
50 Jigglypuff [Smash]
B Button: Rollout
Smash B: Pound
Jigglypuff's normal attacks are weak, and because of its light weight it's easily sent flying. However, with its incredible midair agility, it seems to dance when airborne. Rollout is a powerful speed attack, but be careful not to fly off the edge. Pound does serious damage, and it can also help as a recovery move.
51 Jigglypuff [Smash]
Up & B Button: Sing
Down & B: Rest
Jigglypuff can put its enemies to sleep if they are in range of its Sing attack, although the attack does not work on airborne foes. Rest puts Jigglypuff into a deep sleep, but at the instant it drops off, an intense energy force radiates out of the exact center of its body. If this force comes in contact with an enemy, look out! Rest is Jigglypuff's wild card.

Super Smash Bros. Brawl[edit]

Snake's codec[edit]

  • Snake: Aw, there's a big eyeball walking around here...
  • Colonel: That's just Jigglypuff.
  • Snake: Jigglypuff? Is that some kind of marshmallow?
  • Colonel: Jigglypuff is a balloon-shaped Pokémon. It may be light and puffy and full of air, but its Sleep ability is devastating.
  • Snake: Sleep...? What's so devastating about it going to sleep?
  • Colonel: The instant it falls asleep, there's a huge buildup of energy in its center of gravity. If it hits you, it's lights out for sure.
  • Snake: So it puts a lot of energy into sleeping? Sounds pretty irresponsible if you ask me.
  • Colonel: Takes all kinds, Snake. Especially here in Brawl.


# Name Image Appearance(s) Description
73 Jigglypuff
GB Pokémon Red/Blue
DS Pokémon Diamond/Pearl
A Balloon Pokémon. It invites opponents in close with its big, round eyes, then puts them to sleep with a calming song. The secret to the song's unfailing efficacy is Jigglypuff's ability to sing on the wavelength that will make its opponent the sleepiest. It also uses Attract to infatuate opponents who touch it. It uses a Moon Stone to evolve into Wigglytuff.

3DS Pokémon X and Y (10/2013)
NA: This Normal/Fairy-type Pokémon is best known for its soothing singing, which can put foes to sleep. In Smash Bros., it fights best in the air and can even jump six times in a row. The downside, though, is that Jigglypuff's so light, most opponents could launch it in their sleep!

EU: This Normal- and Fairy-type Pokémon is best known for its soothing singing, which quite often puts foes to sleep. In this game, Jigglypuff fights best in the air, and can even jump six times in a row. The downside, though, is that Jigglypuff's so light, just about any opponent could launch it in their sleep!

Jigglypuff (Alt.) JigglypuffAllStarTrophy3DS.png
N/A NA: Jigglypuff's down special Rest sends this Pokémon into a deep sleep that damages and launches any foe it's touching upon napping. They'll even take damage after being hit! It's a pretty challenging move to land, though, and it leaves Jigglypuff wide open to revenge. Be careful when you use it.

EU: When you use the Rest down special, you go into a deep sleep, as you'd expect. But if anyone is touching you when you do it, you'll inflict a lot of damage and launch them directly upwards. They even continue to take damage afterwards. It's not easy to pull off, though, and falling asleep leaves you open to attacks, so be careful.

Palutena's Guidance[edit]

  • Pit: That's Jigglypuff, the Balloon Pokémon.
  • Viridi: Look at the way it floats! It must be light as air.
  • Palutena: Don't let it's cuddly appearance fool you. Its one of the most aerodynamic fighters out there. And it has a deadly attack called Rest. When Jigglypuff lands the move, the effects can be devastating.
  • Viridi: However, that move does render Jigglypuff vulnerable for a short period of time afterward.
  • Palutena: So when you see Jigglypuff start to fall asleep, that's your cue to move in for the kill.
  • Pit: Gotcha. I'll be sure to keep an eye out for when it nods off.
