A Starter Character is a character who is already available for play immediately after turning the game on for the first time; the player does not have to unlock, challenge or download that character in order for him or her to be selectable (as one must do to select unlockable characters and downloadable characters).

Trivia

  • Sakurai considered on having all characters available from the start in Super Smash Bros. for Wii U, but decided to add unlockable characters due to the fans looking forward to the “Challenger Approaching!” segments.
  • Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS has the same number of starter characters as the number of total characters in Super Smash Bros. Brawl.
  • Sakurai stated that in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, only the original 8 characters from Super Smash Bros. will be starter characters.[1]
