In all Super Smash Bros. games, the match officially starts when the announcer says "GO!"

An announcer is a voice that plays the role of a referee in the game. Different voice actors fill this role in different games in the Smash Bros series.


Super Smash Bros. (Voice: Jeff Manning)

  • "Super Smash Brothers!"
  • "3, 2, 1... GO!" (Note: Brawl's Versus Mode works the same way.)

Super Smash Bros. Melee (Voice: Dean Harrington)

  • "Super Smash Bros. Melee!"
  • "Ready? GO!" (Note: Brawl's Single Player Modes work the same way.)
  • "Melee!"
  • "Decision!"
  • "Multi-Man Melee!"
  • "Grab the coins!"

Super Smash Bros. Brawl (Voice: Pat Cashman)

  • "Free-for-All!"
  • "Multi-Man Brawl!"
  • "Basic Brawl!"
  • "Rotation!"
  • "Tourney!"
  • "Special Brawl!"
  • "Team Battle!"
  • "Spectate!"
  • "WOW! Incredible!"

  • Master Hand is voiced by the same person as the announcer, regardless of game. This has led to theories that they may in fact be the same person. This may also be backed up by the fact the announcer has no dialogue during the fight with the Master Hand, unlike in other classic and VS. matches, where the announcer will shout out "Go!" and "Game!" etc.
  • The quote "Ready? Go!" is also used in Donkey Kong's Final Smash, Konga Beat.
  • Super Smash Bros. Brawl has been the only game in the series in which the announcer doesn't shout out the game's title.
  • The Brawl announcer has a much deeper and less "muffled" voice than that of the Melee announcer.
  • The announcer's phrase "success" has become an internet meme, often used at the end of videos featuring characters KO'd by the Falcon Punch or the Knee Smash.
