Magicant is an unlockable stage in Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS, based on the area from the EarthBound (Mother) series of the same name. The stage is automatically unlocked upon unlocking Ness, and Magicant is also where the unlock match for Ness takes place.
The stage takes place on three large pink cloud platforms with a small one on below the middle platform. The main feature of this stage are the Flying Men that appear from the houses on the stage. Hitting one of the Flying Men turns it into a non-playable assistant that attacks the opponents. Once the Flying Man is defeated, a gravestone pops up near their house, just like in the original series. After some time has passed, another Flying Man appears, acting the same as before. Only five appear at max, after which they stop spawning. Occasionally, the Dungeon Man from EarthBound walks along the bottom of the stage, with his head serving as an extra platform.
Trees from Mother appear and can serve as an extra platform while the octopus statue from Mother 2 can serve as both a shield and an extra platform. Standing on the octopus statue causes it to sink into the clouds and eventually drop below the stage. Mobile Sprouts and tomatoes from EarthBound appear on the stage as well. The Mobile Sprouts serve as moving platforms while the tomatoes can be destroyed by attacking them. The Sky Runner from EarthBound also appears on a random part of the stage, serving as an extra platform until it flies off.
Another feature of this stage are the dimensional rifts in the background depicting the following scenes from Mother and EarthBound:
The Final Destination version of the stage is just one giant cloud serving as the platform. Although the stage hazards do not appear in this mode, the dimensional rifts in the background still occur.
Magicant reappears as one of the many returning stages in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. In this appearance, the rifts in the background are produced by multiple large, square-shaped particles rather than being "rips" in the sky.
