Masterpieces in Super Smash Bros. Brawl are trial versions of Nintendo games, which are from the NES, SNES and Nintendo 64. Each of these demos have different time limits during which the player can play before they are returned to the Masterpiece selection menu. The player can press HOME Button at any time when playing a Masterpiece to access the HOME menu and select "Operations Guide" to read the guide and know how to play the game. Players can play the NES Masterpieces using any controller, but the SNES and Nintendo 64 Masterpieces require only the Wii Classic Controller or Nintendo GameCube Controller to play. Some of the Masterpieces are available at the start of the game, while some are unlockable. Only two of the Masterpieces listed below - Fire Emblem: Monshō no Nazo and EarthBound (known as Mother 2 in Japan) - are exclusive to Japanese versions of Super Smash Bros. Brawl.

Masterpieces return in Super Smash Bros. for Wii U, which also includes third-party games Pac-Man and Mega Man 2, Game Boy games such as Kirby's Dream Land and Dr. Mario, as well as EarthBound for all regions. One NES Masterpiece, Fire Emblem: Ankoku Ryū to Hikari no Ken, is exclusive to Japan, as it was the only region in which the original game was released. The demo times are also longer compared to those of Super Smash Bros. Brawl, with each one lasting for at least two minutes at a time. SNES Masterpieces are compatible with the Wii U GamePad, the Wii U Pro Controller, and the Classic Controller, while NES and Game Boy Masterpieces are compatible with the aforementioned controllers as well as the Wii Remote. Players are also given the option to purchase the full games on the Nintendo eShop via the Masterpieces menu with the exception of the Game Boy games, which give a prompt that they are available on the Nintendo 3DS eShop.
