A character is the term used to describe beings in the Super Smash Bros. series. Characters can be sorted into playable and non-playable, which distinguishes whether characters can be used without the use of a cheat device (like Action Replay) or not. Playable characters can further be divided into starter, unlockable, or downloadable, which distinguishes whether characters can be played right away, whether they need to be unlocked by fulfilling certain requirements, or must be downloaded before gameplay is possible.

Notes

  1. 1.0 1.1 1.2 Sakurai mentions these characters as having been planned for Super Smash Bros. on this page.
  2. Sakurai stated that, while the Ice Climbers could run smoothly on the Wii U version, the 3DS could not handle the "two-in-one" coding of the duo, and, in order to keep the roster the same between the two versions, they had to be cut from the roster.
  3. 3.0 3.1 3.2 While there hasn't been any official confirmation that Mewtwo, Roy, and Dr. Mario were intended to be in Brawl, unused data on Brawl's disc labelled for each of them strongly implies that the characters were developed to some degree for Brawl.
  4. Sakurai mentions Marth as having been planned for Super Smash Bros. on this page.
  5. Robin's Final Smash and DLC Outfits for the Mii Swordfighter.
  6. 6.0 6.1 6.2 6.3 6.4 6.5 As part of the Pokémon Trainer.
  7. Sakurai stated that he originally intended to replace Ness with the new protagonist of Mother 3 (Lucas) in Melee, though Mother 3's delay caused him to go back on the idea and keep Ness.
  8. DLC Outfits for the Mii Gunner.
  9. Including Echo Fighters and DLC Characters.
  10. Including 4 DLC Fighters. Vanilla game has 17 newcomers.
  11. 11.0 11.1 Including 2 DLC Fighters. Vanilla game has 78 characters. 4 more new characters are expected for later release as DLC.
  12. Include Echo Fighters. Pokémon Trainer not taken in the count, just his controllable Pokémon.
