Below the Belt is a single-player event match in Super Smash Bros. for Wii U. In it, the player controls Mario, and must protect Little Mac, who is at a level of damage depending on the difficulty, from a giant Wire Frame Little Mac in a one-stock match. The regular Little Mac is in a permanent crouching position, meaning he cannot help Mario, and the event will result in failure if he gets KO'd.


This event is unlocked by clearing That Elusive 9. Completing the event does not unlock any further paths. Once both the event is completed and Falco is unlocked, the left path is unlocked.

Completing the event on hard difficulty within 60 seconds awards 2000G.


  • This event is similar to Melee's Event 19: Peach's Peril and Brawl's Event 31: The Ultimate Bodyguard where the player must defend a helpless ally.
  • Mario's role of defending the damaged Little Mac is a reference to his cameo as the referee in Punch-Out!!
    • Mario also uses his Fire Mario costume, referencing his referee outfit in Punch-Out!!
