Dark Samus[edit]

Dark Samus in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate
“Dark Samus is a living Phazon entity with the radioactive substance Phazon as her energy supply. She has a wide range of abilities, like being able to teleport, cloak herself, and attack with an arm cannon.”
Tips, Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

Dark Samus is the main antagonist of two Metroid Prime games of the Metroid series. Revealed in Metroid Prime 2: Echoes as a doppelgänger of Samus Aran, Dark Samus is actually the result of Metroid Prime fusing itself with Samus' Phazon Suit (and a sample of Samus' DNA by extension) following its defeat on Tallon IV in Metroid Prime.

Super Smash Bros. Brawl[edit]

In Super Smash Bros. Brawl, Dark Samus appears as both a collectible trophy and a sticker, both of which depict her appearance in Metroid Prime 2: Echoes. In Brawl's Adventure Mode, The Subspace Emissary, her sticker can only be equipped by Samus and Zero Suit Samus, and gives them a +11 increase in their battering resistance when equipped.

A "Dark Samus" appears in co-op Event 7: Battle of the Dark Side. Although it is meant to represent Dark Samus herself, this Dark Samus is merely Samus' model recolored entirely black.

Dark Samus as an Assist Trophy in Super Smash Bros. for Wii U

Dark Samus appears as an Assist Trophy in Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS and Super Smash Bros. for Wii U, taking her appearance from Metroid Prime 3: Corruption. She attacks using a variety of Phazon-based abilities, such as tentacles that sprout from the ground, a scattershot of bullet-like blasts from her Arm Cannon, or a barrage of energy balls that home in on enemies. If enough damage is dealt to Dark Samus, a ball of light forms around her before she disappears; otherwise, she simply disappears after a period of time. Dark Samus is also the basis for one of Samus' alternate colorations.

Chrom, Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

Chrom is the prince (and eventual ruler) of Ylisse, father of Lucina, and a distant descendant of Marth who makes his debut in Fire Emblem Awakening. During the events of the game, he meets and befriends Robin, who joins him and his military band, the Shepherds, in defeating the Fell Dragon Grima. He wields Falchion, the same sword wielded by Marth, albeit heavily reforged.

In English, Chrom is voiced by Matthew Mercer,[1] who has voiced him in the dubbed Fire Emblem games, while Tomokazu Sugita, Chrom's Japanese voice actor in the Fire Emblem series, provides his voice in the Japanese version.[2]

Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS / Wii U[edit]

Chrom appears as a non-playable character in Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS / Wii U as part of Robin's Final Smash, Pair Up. When the move is used, Chrom appears and dashes forward, sending any opponents in his way into the air. Chrom and Robin then both follow up with a series of attacks culminating with a downward blow that launches opponents. Chrom also appears as a collectible trophy and an online profile icon, and occasionally appears alongside Robin in their victory pose.

Originally, Super Smash Bros. series director Masahiro Sakurai considered adding Chrom as a playable character, but felt he didn't possess any unique characteristics and would be too similar to other sword-wielding fighters such as Marth and Ike.[3] This is referenced in Super Smash Bros. for Wii U in the Palutena's Guidance conversation for Robin, in which Chrom makes a guest appearance. Chrom also appears in Robin and Lucina's introduction trailer, where he is seen lying on the ground, having been defeated by Captain Falcon.

Introduction, "A Piercing Screech" Trailer for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

Ridley is a high-ranking member of the Space Pirates, and one of the main villains in the Metroid series of video games. He is directly responsible for the murder of Samus Aran's mother and partially responsible for the death of her father. In several instances, Ridley appears as an upgraded cybernetic version of himself called Meta Ridley. In addition to the Metroid series, Ridley has made an appearance in all games in the Super Smash Bros. series (aside from Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS), as well as in Nintendo Land in animatronic form.

Captain N: The Game Master[edit]

Ridley's appearance from Captain N: The Game Master.

Ridley makes a cameo in the episode, "Gameboy" in Captain N: The Game Master, depicted as a large orange dragon. He also makes appearances in the Valiant adaptation of the series released for the Nintendo Comics System, where he looks more like his American artwork for Metroid, being a blue, multi-eyed, pteranodon-like alien.

Super Smash Bros. series[edit]

Super Smash Bros.[edit]

In Super Smash Bros., Ridley can occasionally be seen flying in the background of the Planet Zebes arena.

Super Smash Bros. Melee[edit]
Ridley's cameo appearance in Super Smash Bros. Melee.

Ridley also makes a brief appearance in the opening cinematic of Super Smash Bros. Melee, where he can be seen battling his archenemy, Samus Aran. A trophy of Ridley can also be obtained in this game. Ridley's trophies in Melee and Brawl both state that he is the head of the Space Pirates on Zebes. This is false, however, with the real head being Mother Brain as well as Space Pirate Command.

Super Smash Bros. Brawl[edit]
Ridley art in Super Smash Bros. Brawl
Ridley's artwork for Super Smash Bros. Brawl
Ridley fighting Samus, in Super Smash Bros. Brawl

In Super Smash Bros. Brawl, Ridley is fought twice in the Subspace Emissary.

The first time he is encountered, he is fought by Samus and Pikachu. As the two reach the exit to The Research Facility, where her Power Suit had been held, Ridley appears without warning and snatches up Samus. Roaring, he slams her into a wall and drags her along it. Pikachu comes to Samus's rescue, hitting the space dragon with a Thunder attack, after which the battle begins. Ridley fights similarly to Master Hand, using many brutal physical attacks. When he is defeated, he falls off the arena.

Meta Ridley fighting Diddy Kong

He later reappears as Meta Ridley, attacking a group including Captain Falcon, Captain Olimar, R.O.B., Samus Aran, Pikachu, Diddy Kong, and Donkey Kong as they try to escape the floating Isle of the Ancients before it is engulfed in subspace.

As this battle is fought while trying to escape an island, there is a set time limit of two minutes that the player has to defeat Meta Ridley, who is more difficult to beat than Ridley was. Additionally, there is the added difficulty of the battle taking place on top of Captain Falcon's ship, the Falcon Flyer, so it is possible for the player to fall off the edge and lose.

Meta Ridley uses some of the same attacks as Ridley did, such as scraping his tail across the top of the Flyer and firing fireballs, but also shows additional ones that involve grabbing the Falcon Flyer and lowering it down with his weight, sometimes even lowering it off of the screen. Fortunately, most of Meta Ridley's attacks can be avoided by jumping off the Falcon Flyer at the right time. Meta Ridley's fireballs can also be reflected right back at him. Due to the time limit that is given during the Meta Ridley battle, Trophy Stands will appear more frequently, especially on the easier skill levels.

If the player manages to defeat Meta Ridley, a cutscene is shown, and the Falcon Flyer escapes while the island is engulfed into subspace.

Both fights are reprised in The Great Maze with any characters that have been rescued throughout the Subspace Emissary. He is also fought in the Boss Battles game mode. There is no time limit when fighting Meta Ridley in either The Great Maze or in Boss Battles mode.

Super Smash Bros. for Wii U[edit]
Zero Suit Samus and Ridley.
Zero Suit Samus and Ridley, in Super Smash Bros. for Wii U

In Super Smash Bros. for Wii U, Ridley is a stage hazard boss on the Pyrosphere stage. His physical appearance, like Samus's, is based on his appearance from Metroid: Other M. Once attacked enough by a player, Ridley allies with that player, and attacks the other players. He can also transform into Meta Ridley by absorbing enough energy. He can be defeated, and, as if he was a character, defeating him rewards the player with a K.O. point; he can be defeated by his own ally as well.[4] Ridley's stock icon for Super Smash Bros. for Wii U uses his appearance from Super Smash Bros. Brawl instead of his Metroid: Other M appearance.

Nintendo Monopoly[edit]

Ridley appears in Nintendo Monopoly, in which he takes the place of Tennessee Avenue. He costs $180.

Nintendo Land[edit]

Introduction tagline, "Heroic Encounter" trailer for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

The Hero is a title assigned to various main playable characters in the Dragon Quest series. Their background, appearance, skills, and roles of the heroes vary between the games, as they are all unique characters from one another.

Four of these heroes appear in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate as a singular downloadable character.[5] Each one of the four appears as a selectable costume for the character, with the default choice being the Hero from Dragon Quest XI: Echoes of an Elusive Age.

Naming[edit]

In the Hero's reveal trailer for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, Masahiro Sakurai assigned each one a different nickname to differentiate between them. Their names are as follows:

They all represent a hero from a different Dragon Quest series game. Their origins are as follows:

Despite this, their nicknames are not used in-game at all; all menu screens and the announcer refer to all four incarnations of the character as "Hero". Their spirit also refers to them as Hero, with their origin game in parenthesis.

Steve[edit]

Artwork of Steve from Super Smash Bros. Ultimate
Steve in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate
“Steve and Alex are two of the many incarnations of the player when they venture into the Minecraft world. Explore dungeons, create buildings, or trade with villagers–the adventure is in your hands!”
Tips, Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

Steve is the name given to the default main player character and protagonist in Minecraft; the female default skin playable character is Alex. Steve has dark brown hair, a cyan shirt, blue pants, grey shoes, and a dark, brownish pigmentation. Alex has long, red hair, a light green shirt, brown pants, grey boots, and a much lighter skin tone. Enemies in the game include a Zombie (a green-skinned version of Steve with no hair), and an Enderman (an entirely black humanoid-like figure with small, purple eyes, and skinny, tall legs).

The game, Minecraft, and its characters were created by independent video game developer company, Mojang Studios, which was wholly purchased by Xbox Game Studios in 2014. Steve, Alex, a Zombie, and an Enderman were all confirmed to be a playable character for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate as downloadable content.

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate[edit]

Main article: List of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate fighters § Steve

Other appearances[edit]

Minecraft[edit]

Steve is the default skin in all versions of Minecraft, with Alex being the other default playable skin available from the start. Before being named Steve, the model for the human player was added to the first public release of Minecraft on May 13, 2009. The character of Steve originally came to be referred unofficially to as "Steve?" by the game's creator,[16] but it was not until the game's official release out of beta in 2011 that the name "Steve" was made official (dropping the question mark). The model for Steve in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate uses a version of his face with a beard that was removed from Minecraft since Java Edition Classic 0.24 released on September 1, 2009. Despite having been changed in-game for over a decade by the time of the DLC's release, this bearded version of Steve is still used in promotional artwork for Minecraft, including its game cover. The beard on Steve's face is often confused for a smile. Zombies were added on September 1, 2009 to Java Edition Classic 0.24, Endermen were added on September 14, 2011 to Beta Update 1.8, and Alex was added on September 2, 2014 to Java Update 1.8.

The Super Mario Mash-up, available on Wii U, Nintendo Switch, and New Nintendo 3DS, adds forty different Super Mario-themed skins to replace Steve. Hammer Bros. replace the Zombies in the pack, while Endermen are replaced by Stilt Guys.

Sephiroth is the main antagonist from Square Enix's Final Fantasy VII. He is a former renowned member of an elite fighting force called SOLDIER, who became a renegade and went on a murderous rampage after discovering the circumstances of his existence. Sephiroth would then go on to become a world-ending threat for Cloud Strife and his allies to stop. He appears in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate as a downloadable character. Despite having almost all of his home series appearances dubbed in English, and a few earlier appearances dubbed in additional languages, Sephiroth, like his rival Cloud, speaks only Japanese in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, similar to Marth and Roy prior to the game; he is voiced by Toshiyuki Morikawa, his Japanese voice actor from Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children onward.

Pyra is one of the main characters from Xenoblade Chronicles 2. She is a Blade, a personification of a weapon (in her case, the legendary Aegis sword) that can be wielded by the game's main protagonist, Rex. She was created by Mythra out of shame as an alternate personality and an idealized version of herself. The kind, gentle Pyra uses a variety of flame-based powers in combat, whereas her arrogant, headstrong "sister" Mythra uses light-based powers. Both Pyra and Mythra were released as a singular 2-in-1 downloadable fighter for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, marking their sole appearance alongside Super Mario franchise characters.
