Super Smash Bros. Ultimate: Every Confirmed Character (And How They've Changed)

6. Kirby

Kirby SSBU

Masahiro Sakurai made his baby perfect in the first game, so there are no real changes here. Everyone's favourite pink puffball can now transform into a shrine chest from Breath of the Wild as part of his stone attack. Weird, but nifty.

7. Fox


The son of James McCloud now comes dressed in his StarFox Zero outfit, and has replaced the cumbersome Landmaster with an Arwing assault for his Final Smash.

8. Pikachu

Pikachu SBBU

Of all the original octet, Pokémon poster child Pikachu has the most to boast about, as both a female variety (with a heart-shaped tail, because, you know) and Pokkén Tournament's adorable Pikachu Libre provide alternate guises.

9. Luigi

Luigi SSBU

Luigi is just as outwardly pathetic but secretly destructive as in the last four Smash titles. We hope and pray for a Waluigi clone. No really, we do.

10. Ness


Ness baffled many players (particularly those in Europe) when he rose from the dead to appear in the original Smash Bros. He and his trusty baseball bat have since become a familiar favourite, and it wouldn't be the same without him. His Final Smash now includes Earthbound buddies Paula and the wonderfully named Crown Prince of Dalaam, Poo.

Benjamin was born in 1987, and is still not dead. He variously enjoys classical music, old-school adventure games (they're not dead), and walks on the beach (albeit short - asthma, you know). He's currently trying to compile a comprehensive history of video game music, yet denies accusations that he purposefully targets niche audiences. He's often wrong about these things.
