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

Duck Hunt, known as Duck Hunt Duo in Europe, is a duo of playable characters in Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS and Wii U. They were revealed via a live stream made from people who received Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS early, and were one of the last characters to be officially revealed. They were the last newcomer to be officially revealed. They are from the classic NES game Duck Hunt.

Attributes

Duck Hunt consists of a dog known by fans as the "Duck Hunt Dog" or the "Laughing Dog", a duck, and a unseen player holding a NES Zapper. The dog is infamous for laughing at the player if they miss a duck.

Good aerial play. The duck hits pretty fast and his aerials are quite deadly. When hit right at the beak, can deal some nasty damage and knockback, especially his up aerial.

He can also put up a lot of pressure using his three specials.

Trick Shot is a difficult, yet versatile projectile that can provide the greatest pressure out of all his projectiles due to its damage and knockback from detonation. The versatility comes from shooting the can. Position is key.

Clay Shooting can provide quick and long range pressure and damage. All three shots are quite easy to land as long as the disk is close to the enemy or hits them.

Wild Gunmen may seem simple, but their quick projectiles make them a good pressuring tool; especially the leader, whose draw is incredibly fast.

Duck Hunt's weaknesses are his lightweight and hefty end lag from his specials and smash attacks. This makes Duck Hunt a high-risk character, focusing on pressuring the enemy from a distance before using either a smash attack, or a sweet-spotted aerial.

Dog

DogTrophyWiiU

In the NES game Duck Hunt, the dog is your trusty hunting partner. He scares the ducks and then picks up the ones you hit. So if you don't hit any, though, he'll laugh at you. So much for man's best friend... In the Duck Hunt stage in this game, he'll occasionally pop up in his 8-bit glory and let you use him as a platform!

Duck

In the classic NES game Duck Hunt, you hunt, er...ducks. The dog flushes them into the air, and then you aim and fire. Taking down ducks gets you points in the Duck Hunt stage in this game too. It has no effect on the battle, but the alternative Duck Hunt action might be a refreshing change from constantly punching your friends in the face.

Trivia

  • The Dog is the second character in the Super Smash Bros. series that is solely quadrupedal, the first being Ivysaur.
  • The dog is the 1st canine character who is a domestic breed, since, Fox and Wolf are wild breeds.
  • The duck is the 2nd avian fighter in the series, the 1st being Falco.
  • He is, in a way, the first fighter comprised of 3 characters (if considering the dog, the duck, and the unseen player using the NES Zapper). This is even referenced in Duck Hunt's Palutena's Guidance.
  • Duck Hunt perhaps is a replacement of the Ice Climber duo, but some people think that this is not the case. This was confirmed during an interview with Masahiro Sakurai, on which he said that the Ice Climbers would lag the game up, leading people to think that Sakurai didn't want to miss a 80's game representative, thus added Duck Hunt to fill the gap. This once happened to the Balloon Fighter, because he was originally slated to be a new fighter in Melee, but was later dropped for the Ice Climbers partway during development.
  • Duck Hunt and Toon Link are the only playable characters in Super Smash Bros. 3DS/Wii U to also appear as background characters.
