Duck Hunt (stage)
Ads keep the MarioWiki independent and free :)
Duck Hunt is an unlockable stage appearing in Super Smash Bros. for Wii U. It is unlocked by defeating at least one opponent in Cruel Smash mode. The stage is based upon the game of the same name, taking place on the field that game is set on. The tree and bush serve as platforms. Because the stage is "fullscreen", the sides are pits. In addition, similar to the Game & Watch stages in previous games and Hanenbow in Super Smash Bros. Brawl, the characters appear 2D. Duck Hunt was later released as part of a free update on September 30, 2015 for Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS. In the 3DS version, the stage's heads-up display is fixed to the 3DS screen as opposed to the stage itself.
Ducks from Duck Hunt fly across the screen as characters fight. They can be attacked and knocked out of the sky to add to the score on the bottom of the screen, and will occasionally drop items. When the dog briefly appears to collect the ducks, it can also be stood on as a platform. A large patch of grass may also appear on the stage, obstructing fighters behind it. When playing in 8-Player Smash, the dog and ducks do not appear.
The Omega form of the stage is set on just the field; the tree and bush are gone, and the ducks and dog also no longer appear.
In Super Smash Bros. for Wii U, the unlock match for the Duck Hunt character takes place here.
