Prerelease image of the Wii U version.
Since this picture was taken before the game is released, the icon displaying "overalls" corresponds to the coat icon, a minor error. Names are also inconsistent with the final release (compare "Easy Split-Second" to "Perfect Shield Helper" and "High-Speed Dash" to "Sprinter"). Equipment labels are also different. Compare "Attacker" to "Bruiser".

Equipment is a major aspect of Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS / Wii U. Players initially have three pieces of equipment: one Brawn Badge, one Protection Badge, and one Agility Badge, but they can earn more equipment through a variety of ways, including unlocking them via Classic Mode, Smash Run, Trophy Rush, Street Smash, Target Blast, Challenges, and amiibo prizes. Equipment raises one or more stats (while lowering others), but they can provide additional effects, positive or negative (equipment with negative effects, however, are generally more powerful, and have a smaller stat penalty). Players can sell equipment for a small amount of gold; more valuable and powerful equipment generally cost more gold.

Overview[edit]

Equipment comes in three categories, which are Attack, Defense, and Speed.

Category Effect
Attack Increases damage dealt for all attacks, including special moves and items. It also increases attack knockback, and freeze frames.

Negative attack values decrease attack damage, knockback, and freeze frames.

Defense Lowers the amount of damage and knockback that the fighter receives from attacks. It is unclear if the stat affects weight and shield strength as well or if they are indirectly affected by the damage decrease.

Negative defense values make the fighter take more damage than normal, and receive higher knockback.

Speed Increases the fighter's mobility on the ground, and in the air, along with increasing its jumping height, falling speed, and fast-falling speed. Landing lag is also reduced.

Negative speed values make the fighter slower on the ground, and in the air, along with decreasing its jumping height. Landing lag is also increased.

Any stat that has a majority trait, has a label attached to it. If there are two stats that are roughly equal, the label shows both traits; for an example, a character with mostly attack and speed have the "Spd/Atk" label.

  • Bruiser (Attack)
  • Defender (Defense)
  • Speedy (Speed)
  • Balanced (no dominant stat)

Every stat-boosting equipment has a drawback, depending on the type of equipment. The bigger boost the equipment offers, the bigger the penalty. What stats an equipment offers is variable, and some equipment have better stats overall (such as both higher stat gain and lower stat penalty for two equipment of a kind) and are worth more when players sell them.

  • +Attack
    -Defense
  • +Defense
    -Speed
  • +Speed
    -Attack

Finally, speed affects the total weight limit of Smash Run powers that a character can carry in the Nintendo 3DS version. Increasing a character's speed decreases the total amount of weight available, while increasing defense, which decreases speed, allows more powers to be held. The default amount of powers a character can hold also varies for each individual character. For example, Bowser, by default, can carry more powers than Fox.

Each character can wear only three pieces of equipment, and equipment stats can be stacked. However, stat values are not able to go higher than 200, regardless of if the value is positive or negative.

Once the player has finished giving equipment and setting different special moves, if there are any, the player can save the combination of equipment under a name, including the character's color (which can be altered if players are selecting their character under the character select screen under the Custom menu). There are ten available slots, so players can save a total of ten combinations for one character.

Equipment can be turned on or off, although characters cannot use equipment in All-Star mode, the Stadium modes, Trophy Rush (3DS only), or With Anyone during online play. Likewise, certain events in the Events game mode prevent the player from using equipment as well. Also, whenever fighters use their Final Smashes, their equipment will temporarily be disabled, but the opposing fighters' defense values can still affect how much damage the Final Smash will deal whenever it hits.

On one final note, the player can only hold up to 3,000 pieces of equipment. The limit, however, can end up decreasing if the player has any copied fighters who have equipment equipped onto them. If the limit is reached, the oldest equipment gets removed to make room for new equipment.

Equipment list[edit]

Below is a list of all the equipment types that exist in the game. The equipment names are from the North American version of the game, but if there are name differences between the North American and European versions, then the European name will be displayed below the North American name.

How often the player can acquire a specific equipment type is determined by how many fighters are able to use it.

Bonus effects[edit]

Some equipment carry special attributes, which can either be positive or negative. Unlike with the equipment that doesn't have bonus effects, bonus effect equipment do not have a rarity level.

Equipment that offers positive effects usually have stronger stat drops than stat boosts. How massive the stat drop is when compared to the stat boost can depend on the strength of the bonus effect; for example, the Critical Hitter equipment always hinders a stat more than what it boosts, while the Hard Braker equipment may still offer a stronger stat boost than a stat drop.

Equipment that offers negative effects are depicted by red text. Negative bonus effects typically offer weaker stat drops and stronger stat boosts to compensate for the negative effect. Because of this, the stronger negative bonus effects are usually much less common to acquire than most positive bonus effects.

Also, some equipment can give one item at the start of the match; if the item is turned off, via item switch, the item does not appear. The item will never appear if the player is playing an event match, however, since event matches do not allow outside items to be used.

On a side note, some bonus effects will never activate when the player is fighting against Master Hand, Crazy Hand, Master Core, or any Smash Run enemies. Also, not all bonus effects can be stacked.

Note: Some bonus effects are named differently between regions. The European names are displayed below the North American names.

Equipment stats[edit]

Equipment that the players can receive are often given random stats. The following rules are governed for how the equipment is generated:

  • Positive values can range from 10 to 85.
  • Negative values can range from 0.5x to 0.7x the positive value.
  • The rarity title of the equipment determines how high and how low that equipment's positive value can be.
    • Common equipment have a positive value of 10 to 30.
    • Uncommon equipment have a positive value of 31 to 60.
    • Rare equipment have a positive value of 61 to 85.
  • Equipment with bonus effects have a stat modifier that subtracts from either the positive value or the negative value.
    • Positive bonus effects have lower positive values.
    • Negative bonus effects have lower negative values.
  • After the stat modifier has been applied, the equipment's positive and negative values never go below 5.
  • If the equipment type is Brawn Badge, Protection Badge, or Agility Badge, its positive value and negative value are multiplied by 0.72.
    • This is done to compensate how all characters are able to use badge equipment.
    • The multiplier is applied "after" all the other calculations are made.
  • All stats are rounded down to the nearest integer (if necessary).
Rarity level Character specific equipment Badge equipment
(Brawn Badge, Protection Badge, Agility Badge)
Positive value range Negative value range Positive value range Negative value range
Common 10 - 30 5 - 21 7 - 21 3 - 15
Uncommon 31 - 60 15 - 42 22 - 43 11 - 30
Rare 61 - 85 30 - 59 43 - 61 21 - 42

Note: Equipment that's unlocked by completing challenges do not follow the calculations that are mentioned above; their stats are always fixed.

Stat modifiers[edit]

Below is a table of the stat modifiers that are applied onto the equipment that has bonus effects. While the stat modifier value normally subtracts from the equipment's positive value, stat modifier values that are colored red are subtracted from the equipment's negative value instead.

amiibo customization[edit]

An amiibo can be customized with equipment as well. Unlike with playable fighters, amiibo fighters can be equipped with any kind of equipment, regardless of whether or not the original fighter is compatible with the equipment. However, the amiibo will consume any equipment that it receives, causing the equipment to be lost permanently.

When fed equipment, the stat boosts and drops that the amiibo receives are smaller than what the normal fighters are given, but to compensate for this drawback, an amiibo can be given more than three pieces of equipment, enabling its stats to gradually increase. However, like with the normal fighters, amiibo fighters can only learn up to three bonus effects. If it has three bonus effects and consumes another equipment with a bonus effect, it must choose which effect to remove, including the incoming bonus effect; if the incoming bonus effect is removed, however, the stat increases and decreases are altered. Also, there is a limit to how much equipment an amiibo can be fed in one session; if the amiibo is full, it has to fight in a match before it can consume more equipment.

An amiibo's stat total is capped at 120, but the stat total can be modified by feeding the amiibo any equipment that has bonus effects; positive bonus effects decrease the stat total, while negative bonus effects increase it.

Selling equipment[edit]

The player can also sell equipment to earn gold. How much gold that is earned is determined by the equipment's stat values, along with how strong its bonus effect is (if it has one).

The following table displays the selling price range for the equipment that does not have any bonus effects.

Rarity level Selling price range
Character specific equipment Badge equipment
Common 2 - 12 1 - 8
Uncommon 17 - 56 12 - 40
Rare 51 - 102 36 - 73

The selling price formula is as follows:

(1.0p - 0.6n + 1.1pb - 0.4nb) * t

  • p and n are the equipment's positive and negative values.
    • The values are taken after the badge equipment multiplier has been applied (if the equipment type is Brawn Badge, Protection Badge, or Agility Badge).
  • pb and nb are the absolute value of the modifiers for positive and negative bonus effects; they are 0 if not applicable.
  • t is a scaling value based on the power of the positive value before any modification:
Positive value range Price scaling
10 - 20 0.36
21 - 30 0.58
31 - 40 0.97
41 - 50 1.22
51 - 60 1.35
61 - 70 1.44
71 - 85 1.71

After players have sold any equipment, in order to keep the gold that they gained, they have to also save any changes that are made to their customized character. If the character customization is not saved, the game will act as if the player has sold nothing.

Smash Run power limits[edit]

The table below displays the default power limit values for the fighters in Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS. These values are only used in Smash Run, where they can enable fighters to carry more Smash Run powers. The power limit can be modified by adjusting the speed stat, with positive speed values lowering the power limit and negative speed values raising it.
