That Elusive 9 is a single-player event match in Super Smash Bros. for Wii U. In it, the player controls Mr. Game & Watch, and must defeat a metal Mr. Game & Watch by getting a 9 using Judge; depending on the situation, success may be granted when the 9 hits and the "lethal blow" visual effect appears, before the opponent is actually KO'd. If any other attack KOs the Metal Mr. Game & Watch, it does not count and he immediately respawns. Pitfalls and Deku Nuts are the only items which will spawn in this event, and can be used to ensure that the Metal Mr. Game and Watch does not try to shield or dodge a successful 9.
This event is unlocked by clearing Fire-Type Frenzy and having Mr. Game & Watch unlocked. Completing the event unlocks the down path.
- Down path: Awards 1000G. Leads to Below the Belt.
Completing the event on hard difficulty awards a Sudden Death Gambler Torch equipment.
