This article is about Little Mac's appearance in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. For other uses, see Little Mac.
As a boxer, Little Mac fights with his fists alone—no kicks! When his Power Meter fills up, he can use a special KO Uppercut, which can really turn a battle around. For his Final Smash, he turns into Giga Mac and pummels the opponent with a furious rush of punches!

Special Attacks

  • Jolt Haymaker no longer puts Little Mac into free fall when used over the ledge.
  • Straight Lunge can now be reversed just before launching the attack.
    • Straight Lunge can also be cancelled into shield while charging it; this does not, however, store the charge.
