SmashWiki article: Samus (SSB)

Samus Aran is the main protagonist of the Metroid series and an intergalactic bounty hunter. Initially orphaned as a young girl through the combined efforts of Ridley and the Space Pirates, Samus was soon adopted by the surviving members of the bird-like Chozo race. The Chozo subsequently infused her with a sample of their DNA in order to allow her to better survive environments too harsh for humans, after which they trained her in combat in order to prepare her to use the Power Suit. Upon leaving the Chozo following her training and acquisition of the Power Suit, Samus served a brief stint as a member of the Galactic Federation, after which she decided to become a bounty hunter and fight the Space Pirates on her own, including Ridley.

Samus is one of the default characters in Super Smash Bros. Her appearance is based upon the Varia Suit as it appears in Super Metroid. In the game's single player mode, she is fought on the Planet Zebes stage.

Samus's standard special move is the Charge Shot, which allows her to charge up a blast and fire it. Her up special move is the Screw Attack, in which she jumps up with an electric barrier around her to damage opponents. Her down special is the Bomb, in which she turns into the Morph Ball and drops a bomb. In addition, Samus uses the Grapple Beam as her grab move, which gives her a ranged grab.

One of Samus's alternate costumes is based upon the Gravity Suit; while the one officially noted as the Gravity Suit appears similar to the in-game sprite in Super Metroid, her purple costume resembles the suit in official artwork. In addition, while not based upon any aspect of the Metroid series, her green costume is referred to as "mass-produced Samus," a reference to the Gundam franchise.

SmashWiki article: Pikachu (SSB)
Pikachu SSB artwork.png
“Pika, Pika!”

Pikachu is an Electric-type Pokémon and the mascot of the popular Pokémon series made by Game Freak. Pikachu has made some video game appearances alongside Mario, most notably in the Super Smash Bros. series, in which it is a default playable character in every installment. In the Pokémon series, Pikachu is the evolved form of Pichu and evolves into Raichu. Pikachu is voiced by Ikue Ohtani in the Super Smash Bros. series. She also voices Pikachu in the Pokémon anime, Pokémon Yellow Version: Special Pikachu Edition, since the Generation VI games, and various spin-offs.

Pikachu appears as a default character in Super Smash Bros. It is one of the game's faster characters in both running and walking speed, but is also among the lightest, meaning that while it can move quickly it can also be KO'd earlier than other characters. Its standard special move is Thunder Jolt, which sends out a ball of electricity that travels along the ground and causes opponents to flinch. Its up special move is Quick Attack, which allows it to move with up to two sudden bursts of speed. Its down special move is Thunder, which sends down a bolt of lightning from the top of the stage to strike opponents.

SmashWiki article: Ness (SSB)

Ness is a young boy from Onett and the main protagonist of EarthBound (Mother 2: Gyiyg no Gyakushū in Japan). Starting off as a normal young boy, Ness ends up on a journey to save the world from Giygas's alien army. He also develops psychic powers, known as PSI, during the course of the game. Ness is often pictured with a baseball bat, which is the first weapon acquired in EarthBound. Throughout the Super Smash Bros. series, Ness was voiced by Makiko Ohmoto, who also voices Kirby. Ness's name is an anagram of "SNES", the shorthand term for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System, on which EarthBound was released (however, it is also like "NES" as in the Nintendo Entertainment System).

Ness appears in Super Smash Bros., where he must be unlocked to become playable and is the sole rep of his series. To unlock him, the player has to beat 1-P Mode on Normal or higher difficulty with three or less lives, without continuing, as any character. The player then must defeat Ness in Dream Land (an indirect allusion to Magicant from his home game) in order to unlock him. Due to being an unlockable character, Ness himself does not appear in the game's 1P mode.

Ness uses either his PK moves for his attacks or more physical-based ones. All of Ness's regular attacks involve physical moves, such as a punch kick combo with his jab or his headbutt as his upper aerial move. In addition, Ness uses a yo-yo for his up and down smash attacks and a baseball bat for his side smash attack, both of which are equipment in EarthBound. Additionally, the baseball bat can reflect projectiles. Ness throws his opponents using his psychic powers. When Ness jumps, he also uses his psychic powers to propel him through the air. Due to Ness's size, he has below-average weight, meaning that he is more easily knocked off the stage, but can escape combos more easily. If players press the taunt button, Ness looks at the screen, bows, and says "Okay!" Ness's stage entrance animation has him flying to the stage with PSI Teleport. Ness shares many animations with Mario in Super Smash Bros., such as his hurt, item swinging, walking, both pratfalled and face-planted prone animations, etc. In fact, his Fighting Polygon variant has a very similar appearance to Mario, with the most distinction between them being his smaller, lower nose and his jumps.

Ness's special moves are based upon some of the various PK (Psychokinesis) moves from EarthBound. His neutral special is PK Fire, which sends out a bolt of lightning that creates a pillar of fire that traps opponents when it hits. His up special is PK Thunder, which sends out a controllable lightning bolt to attack. Ness has a unique recovery move in this game, in that Ness can strike himself with the PK Thunder to recover, which propels him to the direction depending on how the PK Thunder hit him. His down special is PSI Magnet, which can absorb energy-based projectiles to recover damage. None of these moves can actually be learned by Ness in EarthBound; they are instead those of his friend and teammate, Paula (although her trophy in Super Smash Bros. Melee suggests that she taught him these moves).

Ness's victory theme is based off of the second half of the Eight Melodies from EarthBound. Ness has an unused voice clip with him shouting PK Starstorm. PK Starstorm would not become Ness's move until Final Smashes are introduced in Super Smash Bros. Brawl.

Captain Falcon

SmashWiki article: Captain Falcon (SSB)
“Show me your moves!”
Captain Falcon

Captain Falcon is the main character from the F-Zero series. He is an F-Zero racer and a secret bounty hunter, with a mysterious past. Throughout the Super Smash Bros. series, Captain Falcon is known for his blend of speed and power, as well as his various signature moves, such as the Falcon Punch and Knee Smash. In addition, the Male Wire Frame and Red Alloy are modeled after Captain Falcon, having some of the exact same attacks and similar idle poses. In the Super Smash Bros. series, Captain Falcon is voiced by Ryo Horikawa, speaking English with a false American accent.

Captain Falcon appears as an unlockable character in Super Smash Bros., and is unlocked by clearing 1-P Mode in under 20 minutes and defeating him on Planet Zebes. Despite having a slow walking speed, Captain Falcon has the fastest running speed. His attacks, however, despite being powerful, are for the most part slow. His design in this game is based on his design from F-Zero X, though his outfit is indigo instead of blue.

Captain Falcon's special attacks are unique in that none of them are based upon any aspect of his series of origin. His special moves are the Falcon Punch, which involves Captain Falcon throwing a delayed, yet powerful, fiery punch; Falcon Kick, which has Captain Falcon performing a flame-engulfed flying kick; and Falcon Dive, in which Falcon leaps and causes a small explosion against an opponent he makes contact with.

Captain Falcon is also unique in that he has a total of six playable alternate color schemes beginning with this installment, with two of the recolors being team battle exclusive. One of Captain Falcon's alternate costumes is that of his evil clone, Blood Falcon, including a patch on his uniform saying "25 - Blood Hawk", which corresponds to the number and name of Blood Falcon's own F-Zero machine. Another one of his colors recolors the original, brighter colors used in the F-Zero series. Captain Falcon and Yoshi have the most color changes of the selectable characters in the game, totaling six, although two of Yoshi's colors are not selectable.

SmashWiki article: Jigglypuff (SSB)
Jigglypuff SSB artwork.png

Jigglypuff is a Normal/Fairy-type Pokémon (a pure Normal-type Pokémon prior to the Fairy type's introduction in Generation VI) from the Pokémon series. Its first appearance was in the Japanese Pokémon Red and Pokémon Green, which later became the international Pokémon Red Version and Pokémon Blue Version. Classified as the Balloon Pokémon, Jigglypuff evolves from Igglybuff and into Wigglytuff.

In Super Smash Bros., Jigglypuff is an unlockable character, unlocked by clearing 1P Game once, and then defeating it on Saffron City. Jigglypuff is voiced by Rachael Lillis in English and Mika Kanai in the original Japanese, its respective voice actors in Pokémon media.

Jigglypuff was designed to be the weakest character in the game.[1] Jigglypuff is the lightest playable character; while it has up to five midair jumps, tied with Kirby for the most, Jigglypuff can also be launched the easiest. In addition, when Jigglypuff's shield breaks, it is launched higher into the air than any other character, potentially KOing it. Jigglypuff also has a high air speed and the lowest falling speed, but also has low walking and dashing speeds. Its attacks are also slow and weak.

Jigglypuff's neutral special is Pound, in which it slaps its opponents. Its up special is Sing, which puts nearby opponents to sleep, and its down special is Rest, which sends any opponents close enough flying but puts Jigglypuff to sleep.

The Japanese version of the game has both "Purin!" and "Jigglypuff!" announcements.
