Effect on Player

Summons a random Nintendo or third-party character when picked up.

“Assist Trophies allow you to enjoy even more characters who couldn’t quite make it as playable fighters. You may even see some that only the most dedicated fans will recognize, so you’ll have to look forward to them.”
Masahiro Sakurai, Smash Bros. DOJO!!

The Assist Trophy in Super Smash Bros. for Wii U

The Assist Trophy is an item in Super Smash Bros. Brawl and Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS / Wii U. It calls forth a random character to assist the player who used the item, similar to the Poké Ball item. This is unique in that that the character released is from an actual Nintendo or third-party series, but isn't playable. As a result, it introduces characters who couldn't make the cut as playable fighters. Almost all characters that come out of the Assist Trophy are invincible.

Players must be on the ground to summon an Assist Trophy's character. If a player is attacked and sent flying after grabbing the Assist Trophy, but before breaking it open, they must land before they can call forth the Assist Trophy's character. Only one Assist Trophy can appear at a time, unlike Poké Balls.

Super Smash Bros. Brawl Trophy information[edit]

Image Name Description
BrawlTrophy139.png Assist Trophy A capsule that contains characters who will help you out in battle. You won't know who's in the capsule until you open it. It may be someone everyone knows or someone who's a bit of a mystery. The majority of these characters are invulnerable, so attacking them is not an option. You know what that means, right? RUN!
BrawlTrophy303.png Andross A brilliant scientist formerly employed by the Cornerian Army. He took his research too far, and the disastrous results labeled him a Level 1 offender, resulting in this banishment to the nearby Planet Venom. After building a base and declaring himself emperor, he swore he would rule the Lylat system. Thanks to Team Star Fox's heroism, the madman has yet to achieve this.
BrawlTrophy308.png Barbara The manager of the music store GB Music in Waruwaru Town--her real name is Barbara the Bat. She leads the player through the game, showing her arrogant attitude as she cracks the whip at others but pampers herself. Her little brother's name is Tingtin the Bat. By the way, the "GB" in the name of her store stands for "Great Barbara," NOT "Game Boy."
BrawlTrophy296.png Devil A devil who wields serious power in Devil World. In the game, the devil floats above the maze and commands by pointing. When it gives orders, its cyclopean minions turn cranks that scroll the maze in different directions. When Tamagon, your character in the game, places all the stage's books into a hole, the devil turns into a bat and flies away. It's quite striking, no?

Dr. Wright has a comprehensive knowledge of city government and is happy to give you tips to keep your city running smoothly. In the game, he tracks your city's status and gives you gifts.

The engines can be cooled by running over certain marks on the track. Excitebikes cap off every race with an undeniably awesome wheelie.
BrawlTrophy309.png Gray Fox An enigmatic soldier with great physical and combat skills. Calling himself "Deepthroat" and equipped with an enhanced environmental camouflage suit, he dedicated his life to fighting Snake.

As the name suggests, most Hammer Bros. are found in pairs.
BrawlTrophy307.png Helirin A unique helicopter that flies with long, slowly rotating wings. If the wings strike walls or obstacles, the Helirin takes damage and loses hearts.

He receives a telepathic message from Paula saying that she and Ness have been captured, and he sets out to rescue them. He's Ness's age but has the knowledge of an established scientist. He repairs broken items and makes them into other things. As his IQ increases, so does the number of things he can create.
BrawlTrophy313.png Jill A young girl who takes over the leadership of a band of righteous bandits known as the Red Dozers from her injured father.

She has an intense dislike of studying, however.
BrawlTrophy301.png Kat & Ana Twin female ninjas who attend Diamond City Kindergarten. Kat, the older of the two, has pink hair, while the younger Ana has orange hair.

Kat loves cats, and Ana is attracted to flowers.
BrawlTrophy291.png Knuckle Joe A martial artist known for amazing attacks like the Vulcan Jab. With his bandana, he looks and fights the part of a Muay Thai boxer.

His other famous techniques are the Smash Punch and Rising Break.
BrawlTrophy164.png Lakitu and Spinies A particularly stubborn breed of Koopa. Lakitus chase Mario aboard clouds and attack by throwing Spiny Eggs down from above.

BrawlTrophy304.png Little Mac A lightweight scrapper from the Bronx. After meeting with a former boxing great named Doc Louis who fell from glory, Mac takes Doc on as his coach, and together the pair try for the championship belt in the WVBA.

BrawlTrophy297.png Metroid A bioengineered life-form found on planet SR388. Metroids attach to organisms and drain life energy. The Galactic Federation commissions Samus to eliminate them, but Space Pirates try to harness their power. One of the few ways Samus can kill Metroids is by shooting them with the Ice Beam and then shattering them with missiles. The Metroid's cry is chilling and indescribable.
BrawlTrophy289.png Mr. Resetti A character who normally appears from underground to lecture the player. However, he is not always underground--in Animal Crossing: Wild World, he can be found sipping coffee at the Roost if you go at a certain time on a certain day. In the Japanese-only "e+" version, he works at a so-called "Resetti Observation Center" where you can pop in for a visit.
BrawlTrophy293.png Mr. Resetti (2) A mole wearing a hard hat who'll show up when you restart your game without having saved. He pops up and lets you know in no uncertain terms the importance of saving your game. The problem is, his speeches are entertaining enough to warrant breaking the rules at least once. In Animal Crossing, his brother Don appears too. He's the polar opposite of his sibling.
BrawlTrophy294.png Nintendogs A puppy for you to train on your Nintendo DS. They come in a wide variety of breeds, colors, coat styles, and personalities. You can train them, use dog toys to play with them, and feed them treats to establish a real link with your virtual pet. Other features include the ability to enter your dog in disc-catching contests and agility trials on obstacle courses.

This one has a great balance between built-in abilities and ease and depth of available customization.
BrawlTrophy312.png Saki Amamiya A member of a rescue group that hunts aliens known as Ruffians that prey on mankind. He's killed by Ruffians, but the advance scout Achi resuscitates him, and he gains remarkable physical prowess and becomes the hunt leader. During a battle, he transforms into a Ruffian, and his companion Airan helps him recover. He's optimistic and copes well with danger.
BrawlTrophy290.png Samurai Goroh A man who presents himself as a bounty hunter much like Captain Falcon but is also the boss of a notorious bandit group. He tries to collect criminal bounties but always fails to beat Captain Falcon to the collar. He considers himself Falcon's archrival and always tries to beat him in F-Zero races. His machine, the Fire Stingray (#05), has a high top speed.
BrawlTrophy314.png Shadow the Hedgehog Shadow the Hedgehog is a black hedgehog who resembles Sonic. He was created by Dr. Eggman's grandfather, Gerald Robotnik, to be the ultimate life-form. Not only does he look like Sonic, but he has equal abilities. He has great skill with the space-time warping technique called Chaos Control. To reach his goals, he'll use any means necessary.
BrawlTrophy299.png Stafy The prince of the kingdom of Tenkai. He's a bit spacey and clumsy, but when he sets his mind to something, he gives it his all. Stafy gets help from his friends Kyorosuke the clam and the wizened Lobjii-san. Stafy sometimes dons a pig suit and throws pork cutlets. In Densetsu No Stafy 3, Stafy meets Wario and goes with him to steal the treasures of the deep.
BrawlTrophy300.png Tingle A strange little man easily spotted by his trademark green bodysuit, bright nose, and pointy beard.

In a recent adventure, Tingle escapes a sad and dreary life to embark on a magical adventure in the delightful, dreamlike paradise of Rupeeland.
BrawlTrophy292.png Waluigi A twig-thin man who sees himself as Luigi's ultimate rival. He spent a long time working silently in the shadow of the Mario Bros. before finally becoming strong enough to compete with them in Mario Tennis. Since then, he's had many brilliant game appearances. While the nature of his relationship to Wario is a mystery, the pair have hatched some devious schemes together.

Trivia[edit]

  • A concept similar to Assist Trophies was considered for Super Smash Bros. Melee, but the idea was scrapped due to development circumstances.[8]
  • In the April 2014 Nintendo Direct focused on Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS / Wii U, the Waluigi Assist Trophy is used with the Wario series icon, instead of the Mario series icon. This is odd, since Waluigi has never appeared in any Wario series games. This was later changed, as seen on his Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS trophy.
  • In Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS / Wii U, the figure in the trophy appears to be occasionally blinking.
