A '''character''' is the term used to describe beings in the ''[[Super Smash Bros. (series)|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 character|starter]], [[Unlockable character|unlockable]], or [[Downloadable Character|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. 2.0 2.1 2.2 As part of the Pokémon Trainer.
  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 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.
  5. 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.
  6. Sakurai mentions Marth as having been planned for Super Smash Bros. on this page.

Non-playable characters

The following characters are considered non-playable. These include boss characters and enemy teams, among others. Hacking and action replay codes may allow some level of play.
