* The Koopalings in Bowser Jr.'s trailer. Sure, the Koopalings could have been hidden off as "alts" similar to how Female Robin was shown at the end of Robin's trailer as a short portion. But the Koopalings were introduced shortly after Bowser Jr.'s moveset was shown ... In a sense, Junior was inviting the rest of his family to join the fight. The Koopalings aren't blood-related to him, but they're still his friends.

* The trailer for Duck Hunt's reveal illustrates why it's not just "Duck Hunt Dog" or "Duck Hunt Duo", as it shows that the Zapper operator is a key member of the collective character as well. It's capped off by the dog performing his signature laugh as the duck seems to smile at the operator, who holds the zapper proudly. This is referenced for their Palutena's Guidance conversation, where she explicitly tells Pit that they are a trio.

* Cloud ''frickin'' Strife getting into Smash ''at all'' is a massive case of Heartwarming. ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII'' was '''the''' game where Square Enix left Nintendo's systems and sided with the competition for its home-console games. The first six games and a few of their remakes were on Nintendo systems, and with all of their leads [[VideoGame/DissidiaFinalFantasy having been in a fighting game already]], any of them could have been chosen; [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyV Bartz]] and [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyVI Terra]] clash with Cloud on the popularity front, [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyIII Onion Knight]]'s Cartoon Physics would fit right in with Smash Bros, and [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyII Firion]]'s WalkingArmory would provide him with plenty of special moves. But no, they picked Cloud, based solely on the fact that he was the most recognizable Final Fantasy lead. You know what that says? "No hard feelings." It says "Welcome to the battle" with arms spread wide and a joyful smile.

** Heck, even his trophy is heartwarming (and somewhat [[TearJerker tear inducing]], as it cements the fact that he isn't coming back and it sort of plays up the [[VideoGame/{{Mother3}} ambiguous ending of his native game]]). From a translation:
---> "Lucas used to be weak-willed, and cry all the time. However, he overcame unimaginable hardships, and must surely be out adventuring somewhere right now. Or perhaps, he’s found a partner and made a family of his own… No, no, that feels too soon. To fans of the MOTHER series, both Lucas and Ness might be young boys for all eternity."

* An odd example, but it's rather sweet that instead of laughing at the player, the Duck Hunt Dog finally laughs WITH the player... assuming you play as Duck Hunt, anyway.

* In Cloud's trailer, he cuts a balloon with his sword that's carrying a piece of cake. Standing behind him is the Villager, who is very happy by this.
* Cloud's last two variants of his ''Advent Children'' costume remove his left sleeve to reveal a ribbon tied around his arm, worn in honor of his late friend Aerith. It just shows that Cloud is a lot more thoughtful than he lets on; even in Smash, he's thinking about his friends, alive or dead. His final SOLDIER outfit gives another bit: his clothes take the coloration of another fallen friend of his and the previous owner of the Buster Sword, Zack Fair.

* The reason behind HideoKojima asking Snake to be in ''Brawl''? His kids are fans and they wanted to see one of their father's characters in the game.

* The reason behind HideoKojima asking Snake to be in ''Brawl''? His kids are fans and they wanted to see one of their father's characters in the game. Kojima had also requested for Snake to be in ''Melee'', but due to time constraints, his debut was put on hold until ''Brawl''.

* After defeating Wario in the Subspace Emissary, Lucas and the Pokemon Trainer high-five each other. [[FragileFlower Lucas]] becomes sad when he remembers what happened to Ness, but the Trainer gives him a reassuring pat on the back. That was pretty cute.



--> This is literally on the same scale as Bugs Bunny and Mickey Mouse being in the same scene together from the movie, and will probably never happen again for a long time. Nintendo literally blew E3 out of the water culturally with this. So yes, the hype is very high, but the weight of this should drive it even higher! +1 Respec' for the Big N."

** Speaking of victory poses, sometimes, Lucina will say, "Father! I've won!" Regardless of series, how can that not bring a smile to one's face?

* Speaking of which, the way that Junior utterly ''DECIMATES'' Mario's gang in his trailer is pretty uplifting considering his [[HarmlessVillain usual role]] in the series.



* Palutena's Guidance for Mega Man is basically her, Pit and Viridi nerding out at how Mega Man is back, complete with screaming the names of his weapons.

** Which then becomes completely HeartwarmingInHindsight if you play as Roy Koopa in Videogame/MarioKart8: one of his anti-gravity tricks has him [[http://imgur.com/a/5SBIX posing very identically]] to Lord Roy's Taunt from Melee! Consider then how Mario Kart 8's release preceded the reveal of both Koopalings and Lord Roy in SSB4 long before they would be all together in one game...

* All the jokes about the two Roys are pretty funny, especially considering how reveal pictures on the official website showed Fire Emblem's Roy getting back at the Koopaling. However, one of Roy's [=3DS=] ending pictures shows the two together, and not fighting for once. The two made up!

* YMMV on this, but seeing the DLC costumes can be this. Even if a character couldn't get in the game for one reason or another, you're still provided with a way to play as a character you really wanted to get in, like [[DonkeyKongCountry King K. Rool]] or [[FireEmblemAwakening Chrom.]] The characters might not have made it in, but it's clear Nintendo is trying to give us the next best thing.
