Auroroses (アロアロス, Aroaros in Japan) are bird-like enemies in Super Smash Bros. Brawl's The Subspace Emissary. It usually hovers in one spot until the player comes into range after diving from the sky, jabbing its beak into the ground. Once it is stuck in the ground, it cannot attack, and it can be pulled out and can also used as a thrown item. After being thrown in this manner, the Auroros is defeated.

On higher difficulties, Auroros cannot be thrown as far before being destroyed, making it more difficult to hit enemies with the throw.

Name origin

Auroros' name is an obvious corruption of the word aurora, describing its colorful feathers.

Trophy description

Auroros Trophy

A unique enemy characterized by a long beak and rainbow-patterned wings and tail. Like most birds, the Auroros flies through the sky. Once one has you in its sights, it will dive in for the attack. Since it has a sharp beak, dodging its attack will leave it stuck firmly in the ground. Fortunately, you can pull it out of the ground and throw it like a javelin.


  • Auroros, along with Primids and R.O.B.s are the only Subspace Army enemies to appear in cutscenes.
  • Auroros never moves in the sky unless he is in locked battles.
