The Bridge of Eldin originating from The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess is a stage in Super Smash Bros. Brawl.
The Bridge of Eldin appears in The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess and connects Hyrule Castle Town to the Eldin Province. The bridge is situated over a large valley. In Twilight Princess this bridge was temporarily unusable as a large section of it had been teleported away by twilight monsters. The destroyed section of the bridge was teleported to the Gerudo Mesa in the Gerudo Desert. Later in the game, Midna and Link recover and teleport the section back after it becomes necessary to use the bridge. After a minor skirmish across the plains of Hyrule, Link and King Bulblin duel upon this bridge atop cavalry, leading to to the defeat of King Bulblin who fell into the river below.
In the Super Smash Bros. series
Bridge of Eldin appears as a default stage in Super Smash Brothers Brawl.
Bridge of Eldin is a totally flat stage. King Bulblin occasionally interferes with the battle by throwing bombs that destroy the center of the bridge. Characters can take damage from the exploding bombs, touching King Bulblin which has low knockback and can also fall into the abyss underneath the bridge. After a short amount of time, a twilight portal appears and drops the missing section back onto the bridge.
If Bulblin is hit a sufficient number of times before he gets to the middle of the bridge he won't drop a bomb.
The stage is often banned because it is possible to walk off into the blast line, which allows for camping and easy K.Os, especially since characters like King Dedede can chain grab opponents over the edge of the blast line with little difficulty. In addition, when the center of the stage is destroyed, players - especially those with great recoveries - can camp by moving from one end to the other.

- King Bulblin never used bombs on this bridge in Twilight Princess. His appearance is more likely a reference to the fights the player has with the Bulblin Kings on various bridges. In the original game, the bridge was broken by the same twilight portal that eventually repairs it.
- Fanfare blares out from a horn when King Bulblin is about to charge across the stage. The sound matches the one made by King Bulblin at two points in Twilight Princess; firstly to call in reinforcements for the attack on Ordon, and later to alert the Bulblin Riders for the horseback battle against Link.
- Occasionaly, a lone Bulblin will run on to the stage, accompanying King Bulblin. He is usually knocked away from the bomb on the bridge, yet he can be attacked to halt his movement. He deals no damage to the player. If you hit it enough times, it'll fall off of the bridge. If you keep it from being blown up from the bomb, it will simply walk off the bridge once it reaches the gap.
- In the background is visible the Twilight Princess version of the Hyrule Castle, which appeared as a playable stage in SSB. Note that the SSB's version of Hyrule Castle is the Ocarina of Time version of the castle.
