Hero (or The Hero) is a downloadable newcomer in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate from the Dragon Quest universe. He is classified as fighter #72. His inclusion was revealed at the Nintendo Direct show at the E3 2019. The Hero is stated to be released Summer 2019.




The Hero possesses four different variations as alternate costumes, specifically the Hero from Dragon Quest XI (Luminary, who serves as the default outfit), Dragon Quest III, Dragon Quest IV, and Dragon Quest VIII. The Hero's Sword and Shield will also change depending on the outfit, similarly to Cloud and Bayonetta (although this is aesthetic).

The Hero possesses a mechanic known as "MP Gauge," which possesses a maximum of 100 MP. By using a Special Move, which is shown to have four variations, the MP Gauge depletes by a certain amount, though it is unknown how it refreshes or how much each spell cost


  • Hero's Shield can block incoming projectiles similarly to Link's shield though it seems to possess durability as indicated by the shield darkening the longer it shields a projectile.
