Lucas is a downloadable character in Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS and Wii U. He was confirmed as a surprise announcement during Nintendo Direct on April 1st. He will be available for download on June 14th, 2015.

Changes from Brawl to Wii U/3DS

Lucas has been confirmed to have some buffs in his moveset, as well as nerfs. Physically, he received the same treatment as Ness: larger eyes, rounder face and smaller head in proportion with his body, as well as having a brighter color scheme (like all characters in Smash Bros. 4). Most of his moves have the same or similar frame data to their Brawl counterparts.

Attributes

  • Smaller head gives him smaller hurtboxes.
  • His PSI attacks are aesthetically different, as they are more hexagonal-shaped.

Ground Attacks

  • Jab is now slightly slower to start up.
  • Up Tilt is slightly slower to start up.
  • Forward Smash's duration is now the same as its IASA frame in Brawl.
  • Up Smash's second hitbox (the main hit) now comes out faster.

Aerial Attacks

  • Neutral Aerial is slightly slower to start up, its has a longer duration, has less hits (five, compared to eight in Brawl) and much more hitlag. Possibly a little more end lag. The last hit has a larger hitbox and causes more knockback, having a distinct animation to indicate this.
  • Forward Aerial may be marginally slower to start up.

Grabs and Throws

  • Rope Snake is a bit longer both for Grab and Tether Recovery.
    • His Grab is now slower - it takes 5 more frames to grab at its entire range.
  • Down Throw now inflicts a burying effect on targets, however it unknown if this actually buries or if this was made for aesthetics in Lucas' reveal trailer.

Special Attacks

  • PK Fire has a longer range, and the duration (but not necessarily endlag) is much shorter.
  • PK Thunder is much bigger, like Ness'.
  • PSI Magnet has a wider range.

Moveset

Ground Moves

Normal

  • Neutral Attack: Kicks with his right leg twice, then does a spin kick with his left. Very fast, as the hitbox comes out on the second frame.
  • Side Tilt: Lucas does a back hand and creates a wave of PSI.
  • Up Tilt: Lucas does a one-handed stand flipkick charged with PSI.
  • Down Tilt: Lucas crouches and spins with his leg out.

Smash

  • Side Smash: Lucas swings his stick. Like Ness' Forward Smash, it is a reflector, but it is faster.
  • Up Smash: Lucas releases a burst of PSI that erupts above his head.

Other

To be Added

Aerial Attacks

  • Neutral Air: Lucas spins in a gyro pattern with PSI energy around him.
  • Forward Air: Lucas thrusts his foot out, creating a large hexagon.
  • Back Air: Lucas does a flip with his foot behind him and hooks them downwards with a stream of small PSI. Knocks backwards, but if one hits with the tip of his foot (at virtually ANY time), it is a good Meteor Smash.
  • Grab Air: Rope Snake - Lucas thrusts his Rope Snake forward.

Grabs & Throws

  • Grab: Pulls out his Rope Snake which extends and grabs the opponent.
  • Down Throw: Psychokinetically slams opponent down, and stomps on the opponent.

Special Moves

Brawl SSBWU/3DS Ultimate
Standard Special PK Freeze
Side Special PK Fire
Up Special PK Thunder
Down Special PSI Magnet
Final Smash PK Starstorm

Taunts

  • Up Taunt: Lucas trips, shakes his head, and gets back up. Probably derived from Fassad's banana peels. It could also possibly be a reference to the naming screen in MOTHER 3, where Lucas attempts to run off the screen, but trips.
  • Down Taunt: Lucas creates PSI sparks with his fingers and makes a little grunt, moving his arms in a sideways motion.
  • Side Taunt: Duster's Rope Snake taps him on the shoulder and has a brief conversation with Lucas, as Lucas shrugs towards it.

Idle Animations

  • Lucas moves his fists as if playing imaginary drums.
  • Lucas stamps one foot and then the other.

On-Screen Appearance

  • Rides in on a Mr. Saturn coffee table and jumps out of it.

Trophy Description (Past fighter trophy)

Lucas

LucasTrophy3DS
Lucas used to be weak-willed, and cry all the time. However, he overcame unimaginable hardships, and must surely be out adventuring, or perhaps, he's found a partner and made a family of his own... No ... It's too soon. To fans of the MOTHER series, both Lucas and Ness will be young forever.

Trivia
