Lucario, Super Smash Bros. Brawl

Lucario is a Fighting/Steel-type Pokémon from the Pokémon series. While most Pokémon in the Super Smash Bros. series are indeterminately gendered, this one is confirmed to be male, as shown via Solid Snake's codec, and from the description of one Event Match (The Aura Is With Me). He originates from the fourth Generation Pokémon games: Pokémon Diamond, Pokémon Pearl, and Pokémon Platinum versions, is the evolved form of Riolu, and as of Generation VI can Mega Evolve into Mega Lucario.

Lucario appears as an unlockable playable character in Super Smash Bros. Brawl. He can be unlocked by playing 100 Brawl matches, completing every level of Target Smash with one character, or by having him join the party in The Subspace Emissary by clearing The Glacial Peak. His voice clips in this game are provided by Bill Rogers in the English release, and Daisuke Namikawa in Japanese, who provided the voice of the Lucario in the movie Pokémon: Lucario and the Mystery of Mew.

Lucario's attacks and abilities mostly revolve around aura, which increases in power the more damage Lucario takes (though this only applies to attacks that use its aura). His neutral special move is Aura Sphere, in which Lucario charges and throws a ball of aura energy. His side special move is Force Palm, in which Lucario thrusts its hand forward to attack with a burst of energy. His down special move is Double Team, in which Lucario counterattacks an opponent that attacks it. His up special move is ExtremeSpeed, in which Lucario flies in the direction the player inputs. His Final Smash is Aura Storm, in which Lucario leaps into the air and fires a beam down onto the stage.

The Subspace Emissary[edit]

It has been requested that this article be rewritten because it has far more details than necessary and isn't well-written. (tagged on 23:00, 6 March 2015 (EST)).

Lucario in the Subspace Emissary.

Lucario is encountered at the top of The Glacial Peak which the Ice Climbers and Meta Knight climb. At the top of the mountain, Meta Knight meets Lucario. Lucario and Meta Knight pause and go into attack position, and fight, while the Ice Climbers watch, frightened. The player has the choice to play as either Lucario or Meta Knight; whoever loses the battle gets turned into a trophy, and the winner decides to revive the loser of the match.

After the loser is revived, Meta Knight and Lucario pause, as if they are about to fight each other, with the Ice Climbers still frightened. However, Meta Knight and Lucario then shake hands, which is a sign that they are now allies. The Ice Climbers are glad to see Lucario and Meta Knight teaming up. However, then, the four of them see the Halberd and the Great Fox. The Halberd is holding onto the Great Fox with its extendable claw, and it pushes the ship into the mountain to damage it. The Ice Climbers lose their balance and fall off the mountain, but Lucario and Meta Knight are able to climb on top of the Great Fox and then jump onto the Halberd, and they go inside.

Lucario finds Solid Snake in his Cardboard Box.

The two travel through the Halberd, until Lucario notices the Cardboard Box sitting behind a piece of machinery. Using his Aura, Lucario senses Solid Snake inside, and lifts the box up. Snake prepares to fight, and Meta Knight draws his sword, but Lucario puts up a paw to stop Meta Knight from attacking, then puts another up to Snake. He then turns and sees a bright red Aura next to Meta Knight's, and sees the Primids coming. Lucario's eyes turn back to normal, and he, Meta Knight, and Snake start to fight the Primids. They continue, and come to a room where Princess Peach and Zelda's trophies are being kept in cages. Shadow bugs come down from the ceiling, and two dark princesses are formed. Lucario, Snake, and Meta Knight fight and defeat them.

After defeating the Dark Beings, Meta Knight slices the cages down, and Peach and Zelda are revived. Peach and Zelda look at Snake, but he and the others tell the princesses to stay. However, after they leave, Zelda turns herself into Sheik in order to hide from Snake and opens the door. Peach comes after Sheik, smiling. Lucario, Meta Knight, and Snake continue with their quest, until they finally reach the Control Room, which is filled with Mr. Game & Watch men. Snake kicks the Game & Watches out the window, and the Game & Watch people all turn into Shadow Bugs.

The bugs then turn into Duon. Snake and Lucario jump out the window and meet up with Fox McCloud, Peach, Zelda, and Falco Lombardi, where they fight Duon, while Meta Knight stays in the Control Room. After Duon is defeated, all the Shadow Bugs turn into the Mr. Game & Watch Trophy. Fox aims at it with his Blaster, but Peach walks to it and revives the Trophy. Mr. Game & Watch looks around, then Peach gives him her parasol. Mr. Game & Watch seems to like it. Finally Meta Knight grabs the wheel of the Halberd and controls it.

After the Falcon Flyer and the Halberd reunite, they then travel to the desert where everyone reunites. Then they fight against Ganondorf's and Bowser's ship and make it to Subspace. There in Subspace, Lucario and everyone else fought against Tabuu, but are turned into trophies. Lucario and the others are eventually revived, got through the Great Maze, and defeated Tabuu once and for all.

Profiles and statistics[edit]

Super Smash Bros. Brawl[edit]

Trophy information[edit]

Name Image Game Description
Lucario BrawlTrophy065.png DS Pokémon Diamond/Pearl An Aura Pokémon. It can track energy called Aura, which is given off by all living creatures. It's a unique combination of both Fighting- and Steel-type Pokémon. Lucario evolves from Riolu during the day if its happiness has reached a certain point. It specializes in attacks that use Aura energy, like Dark Pulse and a can't-miss technique, Aura Sphere.
Aura Storm BrawlTrophy066.png Wii Super Smash Bros. Brawl Lucario's Final Smash. After flying off the screen, Lucario reappears in its center. It then launches a powerful Aura attack against all foes within a certain distance. The key to this attack is the ability to change its angle--it's a must to sweep slowly left and right to hit selected enemies multiple times. The last blow will send the victim flying away.

Snake's codec[edit]

  • Mei Ling: You're fighting Lucario, aren't you, Snake?
  • Snake: Mei Ling, what's that purple fire coming out of his hands?
  • Mei Ling: That's his "Aura."
  • Snake: Aura?
  • Mei Ling: I guess you could call it his life force. Lucario can use his own Aura and turn it into power. Every time Lucario's damage increases, his Aura gains strength, making his attacks more powerful. So don't think you've got him beat just because his health is down.
  • Snake: The cornered rat will bite the cat... Sounds like trouble.
  • Mei Ling: Hey! When did you become so good with proverbs?!
  • Snake: You must have rubbed off on me.
  • Mei Ling: Well, come back in one piece, and I'll teach you all the Chinese proverbs you can handle.

Palutena's Guidance[edit]

  • Viridi: What the heck is that?!
  • Pit: Oh, that's Lucario. What about it?
  • Viridi: I've never seen a creature with a life force like that! It's like a current of water. Or a whirlpool!
  • Palutena: Oh, you mean Lucario's Aura.
  • Viridi: Aura?
  • Palutena: Lucario can sense the life force—or Aura—emanating from all living things. As Lucario takes more damage, its own Aura grows stronger.
  • Viridi: Ingenious! Lucario sounds like a perfect fit for the Forces of Nature.
  • Pit: We need to focus on the fight at hand.
  • Viridi: You focus on the fight at hand. I gotta catch my new recruit.
  • Pit: No! Stop!
  • Palutena: Pit, a wounded Lucario is stronger than it looks. Be extra careful when it's taken lots of damage.
