Sound in Super Smash Bros. for Wii U.

The Sound option in the Super Smash Bros. series has always been found under the Options menu, with its function varying slightly from game to game.

In Super Smash Bros.

In Super Smash Bros., the Sound option allows the player to either set the game to Monaural or Stereo sound.

In Super Smash Bros. Melee

In Super Smash Bros. Melee, the monaural/stereo option has stayed. A new option, however, adds a music and sound effects slider; depending on which way the slider is set, the game will either make the sound effects or music louder, with setting it all the way to one side completely removing one of the options.

In Super Smash Bros. Brawl

The Sound options page in Super Smash Bros. Brawl has the slider mechanism from Melee, but the monaural and stereo option has been removed, as these settings are modified in the Wii's internal options. Additionally, a link to the Sound test has been added.

In Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS and Wii U

In Smash for 3DS / Wii U, the Sound options menu returns, but is revamped from its previous incarnation. The slider for sound effects and music has been removed, and instead, Music, Sound Effects, and Voices have three separate sliders, allowing the player to decide how loud they wish each option to be, tested by "Battlefield", the Mario coin sound used in Mario's Super Jump Punch, and Mario's voice clips respectively. A button can also send players to the Sound Test. Once again, the player is unable to decide on the output configuration of sound, as such settings are determined by the Nintendo 3DS' and Wii U's settings - and in the Wii U's case, the GamePad's sound has no settings options.

In Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

The music gallery functions almost identically to its appearance in the previous installment.
