Smash Bros.
The Super Smash Bros. (left) and Punch-Out!! (right) variants of the Boxing Ring in Super Smash Bros. for Wii U.

The Boxing Ring is a stage that appears in Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS, Super Smash Bros. for Wii U, and Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. It is set in a stadium with two flat areas on either side and the ring in the center, as well as a jumbotron-like screen and a scrolling LED sign in the background. The stadium features a psychedelic light show that takes place in the background of the stage, including green krypton laser effects, and pyrotechnics.

While based on the Punch-Out!! series, the stage also features a Super Smash Bros.-themed design, and its design is randomly chosen each match. The Punch-Out!! version is based on the World Circuit boxing ring from the Punch-Out!! game for Wii, while the Super Smash Bros. version of the the ring is colored blue with the Super Smash Bros. symbol on the platform. In the Nintendo 3DS version, holding L Button while selecting the Boxing Ring manually selects the Super Smash Bros. version of the stage, and holding Y Button selects the Punch-Out!! version. In Super Smash Bros. for Wii U, holding down the ZL Button button loads the Super Smash Bros. variant, while holding down ZR Button loads the Punch-Out!! variant.

The ropes surrounding the ring spring fighters up when jumped on, and can be used to reach the lights above the stage. However, if the lights are attacked numerous times, it will fall onto the main ring and damage anyone underneath it.

The Final Destination variant of this theme is set on an elevated boxing ring. The ropes around the ring are not present, and the overhead lights are a background object. This version of the stage also has Punch-Out!! and Super Smash Bros. variants, which can be chosen through the same method listed above.

In the Wii U version, the fighters will have a nickname on the jumbotron. For example, if the player uses Little Mac, then his nickname is "Bruiser from the Bronx". Additionally, if a character has a Final Smash in the Wii U version, the scrolling LED sign will say "Chance!" instead of "Punch-Out!!" or "Smash Bros." The same applies for getting a KO, which will say "K.O." on both the sign and the jumbotron as well as sending the match into Sudden Death, which will say "Sudden Death" on the jumbotron.

The Wii U version of Boxing Ring reappears in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. In addition, it acts as the setting for Ken and Incineroar's debut trailer, "A Clash of Flames."
