Min Min is a fighter character originating from ARMS for the Nintendo Switch. She is a Chinese martial artist who is one of few people in the world with ARMS, a phenomenon that causes the person's arms (or on some occasions, other body parts) to mutate into long, stretchy material. She battles in the ARMS League to promote her family's ramen restaurant, Mintendo Noodle House.

SmashWiki article: Min Min (SSBU)

On March 26, 2020, it was announced that the first DLC fighter from the Fighters Pass Vol. 2 for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate would be from ARMS, and would be released in June[1]; on June 22, 2020, the fighter was revealed to be Min Min, and it was announced that she would be releasing through an update available June 29, 2020.[2] Her corresponding stage is Spring Stadium.

Prior to her inclusion, she also appeared as a spirit in the game. Min Min is the first character to already have a spirit before appearing as a fighter.

Min Min is a ranged fighter who utilizes her ARMS in combat. Her ARMS grant her attacks significant reach, but at the cost of being sluggish. They also lack hurtboxes, allowing Min Min to safely use her attacks at a distance.

She has three types of ARMS that she can use in battle, all of which can be swapped out (albeit for her right ARM only): Ramram, which fires a weak, curving projectile with a wide attack range; Megawatt, a mace-like arm that exchanges range and speed for sheer power; and Dragon, which can be held down to fire a short laser beam. The Dragon ARM is Min Min's left ARM at all times.

Uniquely, Min Min does not have a standard or side special move. Instead, the attack button and special-move button (when pressed alone or while tilting left or right) are assigned to her left and right ARMS respectively. If both buttons are pressed, Min Min can simultaneously attack with both ARMS. They both act like standard attacks, meaning Min Min can use a smash attack or initiate a multi-hit attack with the special-move button.

Special moves[edit]

ARMS Jump / ARM Hook[edit]

Min Min's up special move changes depending on whether she executes it on the ground or in the air. When used on the ground, Min Min uses ARMS Jump to launch into the air; the jump can damage opponents. When used in the air, Min Min uses ARM Hook to extend her ARM upward or toward a ledge to grab onto it, which can damage opponents in the process.

ARMS Change[edit]

ARMS Change is Min Min's down special move, which lets her cycle between her three ARMS on her right hand. Its operation is similar to Pokémon Trainer's Pokémon Change; she starts off with Ramram, followed by Megawatt and then Dragon before cycling back.

Final Smash[edit]

ARMS Rush[edit]

When ARMS Rush is initiated, she reaches out in front of her, and any opponents caught in her range will be attacked by the cast of ARMS before being finished off by Min Min.

The Assist Trophy Spring Man also uses ARMS Rush as his finishing move.

Palutena's Guidance[edit]

Min Min shares this stock conversation with all other DLC characters except Piranha Plant. It was originally used for Mewtwo, Lucas, Roy, Ryu, Cloud, Corrin, and Bayonetta in Super Smash Bros. for Wii U, who are downloadable fighters in that game.

  • Pit: Who is THAT?
  • Palutena: I have no data on this fighter. I can't believe it!
  • Viridi: It must be an intruder from another dimension!
  • Pit: Whoever it is, the goal remains the same: to fight and win!

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate official website[edit]

  • Min Min from the ARMS™ game is coming to the Super Smash Bros.™ Ultimate game as a new playable fighter! This iconic fighter is the first fighter in the Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Fighters Pass Vol 2 DLC. Spring into action using the Ramram, Megawatt, and Dragon ARMS to keep your opponents at bay, distance is the key! Challenger Pack 6 also includes a new stage, Spring Stadium.
