This article is about Corrin's appearance in Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS and Wii U. For other uses, see Corrin.

Corrin is a downloadable character set to be released in February 3rd 2016. He/She costs $4.99 for one version of the game and $5.99 for both versions.



  • High mobility, with fast running speed and aerial speed.
  • Most of his attacks have disjointed hitboxes as he/she fights with a sword.
  • Possesses a projectile for neutral special, Dragon Fang Shot.
  • Side special can be cancelled or have different inputs used to extend the attack.
    • Side special pins opponents down to the ground.
  • Possesses a counter for down special that hits on both sides, Counter Surge.
  • Back Air has forward momentum that can help with recovery.
  • Smash attacks have incredible range, namely forward smash.
  • Tilts and aerials appear to have great combo potential.
  • Appears to have strong throws.


  • Dash Attack appears to have long ending lag if it misses, leading to easy punishes.
  • Down Aerial drops straight down, which can lead into SDs.



Ground Attacks

  • Neutral Attack: Jabs the dragon spire, does an upward slash with Yato and finishes by jabbing Yato. The infinite version of the attack has Corrin swiping the dragon fang forth very rapidly many times.
  • Forward Tilt: Does a strong forward slash.
  • Up Tilt: Does an upward slash that knocks opponents into the air.
  • Down Tilt: Does a sweeping slash near the ground.
  • Dash Attack: Jumps forward and spins like a drill. Hits multiple times.


Smash Attacks

  • Forward Smash: A spinning dragon spire attack. It has the longest range of any forward smash and does the most damage at the tip. Damages opponents with the Yato when the move is charging.
  • Up Smash: Takes on the dragon form and stabs upwards with two dragon spires.
  • Down Smash: Corrin stabs forwards with Yato and stabs backwards with their leg-turned-dragon-spire.

Other Attacks

Aerial Attacks

  • Forward Aerial: Does a downward slash. Looks a bit similar to MarthLucina and Roy's Forward Aerials.
  • Back Aerial: Sprouts dragon wings that flap backwards and slam together; the move gives Corrin some forward momentum and actually helps with recovery.
  • Up Aerial: Flips and does an upward slash. Looks very similar to Marth, Lucina and Roy's Up Aerials.
  • Down Aerial: Corrin's legs transform into a dragon spire and then Corrin quickly falls, stabbing downwards with it as they plummet towards the ground; functions much like Toon Link's Down Aerial.
  • Neutral Aerial: One arm transforms into a short dragon spire while the other arm extends the Yato blade; both are slashed in a clockwise position when facing right and counterclockwise when facing left.

Grabs and Throws

  • Pummel: Slams opponents with the hilt of his sword.
  • Down Throw: Holds the Yato Blade against the opponent with its blades running, then stabs them with a dragon spire.
  • Up Throw: Transforms into a dragon and headbutts the opponent into the air.
  • Forward Throw: Stabs the opponent with a dragon spire.
  • Back Throw: Corrin spins around and stabs the opponent with a dragon spire.

Super Smash Bros. – Corrin Chooses to Smash!



  • Corrin is the only DLC character who has both a male and female variation, similarly to Villager, Robin, and Wii Fit Trainer.
  • Corrin is the only first-party DLC newcomer.
  • Corrin and Roy are the only DLC characters to share a universe.
  • Corrin is the only DLC newcomer that does not come with a stage. He does, however, come with two songs for the Fire Emblem Arena stage.
  • Corrin is the newest character added into Smash 4, as Fire Emblem: Fates has not even been released in America and Europe yet by the time of his announcement.
    • Corrin is the second Fire Emblem character added into the game before a global release. The first character was Roy in Melee.
    • However, Corrin will be released somewhere around February which is also the month when Fire Emblem: Fates will be released in America, February 19.
  • In Corrin's announcement trailer, Xander says "Are those warriors of the Outrealms?" when the other Fire Emblem characters are shown. This is a reference to Awakening and Fates having a location on the map called "Outrealm Gate", where DLC maps and DLC characters of past Fire Emblem games can be purchased.
  • Corrin is the only character that hurts opponents while charging his Forward Smash Attack.
