Trivia

  • Though all of the Dragon Quest tracks have versions played by a live orchestra (such as the versions of "Overture" and "Adventure" heard in Hero's reveal trailer), Ultimate uses the MIDI arrangements, most of which come from Theatrhythm Dragon Quest.
    • This is likely due to licensing issues with series composer Koichi Sugiyama, who owns the rights to the series' soundtracks instead of Square Enix themselves, which is a regular practice at the company.
      • It is probably due to these licensing issues that Dragon Quest is the only major series in Smash Bros. to not receive any new remixes, victory fanfare included (as that is also ripped from Theatrhythm Dragon Quest).
    • As the Dragon Quest music is owned by an individual rather than the IP owner, they share this unique distinction with songs from Xenoblade Chronicles 2, the first two Sonic the Hedgehog games, Culdcept, Soma Bringer, and Style Savvy: Styling Star, as well as the promotional singles from Pikmin.
