Super Smash Bros. series
Bubbles makes a cameo in Super Smash Bros. Melee as a trophy. An Unira, which is an enemy from Clu Clu Land, is an item in the games Super Smash Bros. Brawl, Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS / Wii U and Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.
Bubbles appears as a spirit in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.
According to series director Masahiro Sakurai, before the Ice Climbers were chosen to represent the "retro" gaming era, Bubbles was considered as one of the five characters before the Ice Climbers were confirmed, with the others being Urban Champion, Balloon Fighter from Balloon Fight, an Excitebike racer, and Ayumi Tachibana from the Famicom Detective Club series. Sakurai cut Bubbles because he did not know how she would fight.
