  • Happy Happy: raises the launch and attack power of all characters.
  • Freezinate: As the name implies, it will freeze the opponents.
  • Bedtime: Puts the opponents to sleep.
  • Yoink!: Pulls items towards Riki.
  • You Can Do It: heals all characters within a certain range.
  • Roly Poly: Causes all opponents to trip if they are on the ground.

Riki also appears a trophy which is obtainable in both versions of the game.

Trophy Description

A Nopon from Frontier Village in Xenoblade Chronicles. Despite appearances, this year's legendary Heropon is actually a middle-aged father of 11. If you summon him in this game, he'll use Arts to knock over your foes, freeze them, and even send them to sleep. Riki can also heal you, but if he does, he'll heal everyone else too!

  • Wii - Xenoblade Chronicles (04/2012)

In Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

As an assist trophy

Riki reappears in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, using the same attack pattern from Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS/Wii U.

Assist role

Riki also returns as part of Chain Attack, this time with Fiora joining in.

As a spirit

Riki appears as a Master Spirit whose Dojo can be found in the Light Realm at World at Light.

His spirit battle is a team battle against Roy Koopa and Shulk at Gaur Plain’s Omega Form. The Roy puppe fighter references both Roy and Riki having a round-shaped body with Roy’s sunglasses resembling Riki’s eyes. Riki himself appears as the Assist Trophy enemy. The Shulk puppet fighter references Riki being a member of Shulk’s party in Xenoblade Chronicles. The minion fighter’s yellow costume is based on Riki’s color scheme. The stage and music (Gaur Plain) represent Riki’s appearance in Xenoblade Chronicles. Also, the Earthquake & Flowery rules and the Special-Move Power ↑ battle condition reference Riki’s arts in the game, each respectively referencing Roly Poly, Bitey Bitey, and Happy Happy.

Once his spirit is defeated, a dojo opens that increases special-move power.
