** Corrin is called Arceus due to the very close similarities between the dragon form and the God Pokémon.

** Corrin is called Arceus due to the very close similarities between the dragon form and the God Pokémon. As with Robin/Reflet above, Kamui (Corrin's Japanese name) is often used to refer to the female alternate.

** Several jokes have been made about there being two Roys in the series; Roy from ''Fire Emblem'' and Roy Koopa. Then the former was revealed as DownloadableContent for ''3DS/Wii U'', allowing the two to appear ''[[OneSteveLimit at the same time]]''. They still have their own announcer clips (FE!Roy's is slightly triumphant, Roy Koopa's is a bit more sinister), and the promotional material has the Young Lion joyfully watch Roy Koopa fall into lava. If you want to be technical, there's also Colonel Roy Campbell, Snake's MissionControl in ''Brawl''.

** [[http://knowyourmeme.com/memes/360-no-scope 360 No Scope]] for Robin's [[ShockAndAwe Tho]][[KamehameHadoken ron]] where Robin spins his/her body in a [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin 360 degree motion]] prior to firing Thoron, which has one of the fastest muzzle velocities in the game for a projectile and is nearly impossible to block, dodge, or reflect/deflect unless done ahead of time. People have also began calling Thoron [[Manga/DragonBall Kamehameha]] because how it closely resembles Goku's Kamehameha in ''VideoGame/SuperSmashFlash 2'', which has the same amount of range and damage (17% for Kamehameha and 18% for Thoron with the special button held down). The only differences are that Thoron takes less time to charge, can be stored, is reflectable, and has a 10-second {{cooldown}} timer after three Thorons have been fired. It also helps that Lucario lost Aura Storm in ''3DS/Wii U'' and the new Final Smash is now Mega Lucario. [[Franchise/StreetFighter Shinku]] [[VideoGame/CapcomVsWhatever Hadoken]] and [[VideoGame/Persona4Arena Ziodyne]] also work (the latter more so, due to Thoron being an electrical attack).

* DuelingGames: A subversion: ''[[VideoGame/PlayStationAllStarsBattleRoyale PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale]]''. Creator/SonyComputerEntertainment [[SincerestFormOfFlattery isn't trying to deny]] they're playing FollowTheLeader, but, contrary to popular belief, they aren't trying to "compete" with ''Smash'' (especially seeing that ''Brawl'' came out several years earlier and the next ''Smash'' title would be released two years after), but rather [[AlternateCompanyEquivalent just have their own equivalent]]. This can mainly be seen with their usage of the ''Franchise/MetalGear'' content: the fact that Raiden was chosen over Snake is meant to show the differences.

** When it comes to certain characters, it becomes very obvious that a lot of work was put in to make them feel like they do in their home series. {{Capcom}} representatives VideoGame/{{Mega Man|Classic}} and [[Franchise/StreetFighter Ryu]] are two good examples, with Mega Man almost playing like he came straight out of a ''Mega Man'' game, while Ryu brings over a lot of tech from ''Street Fighter'' to ''Smash'', up to even being able to do stronger versions of his special moves by inputting them with the original ''Street Fighter'' commands and having a charge-dependent set of normal attacks based upon the pressure-sensitive pads used in deluxe cabinets for the ''original'' ''VideoGame/{{Street Fighter|I}}''.

* GuestFighter: Outside of the obvious examples, 13 characters in the series have appeared in other fighting games (this includes all 7 guest characters in the series' history):
** [[VideoGame/PunchOut Little Mac]] and [[Franchise/StreetFighter Ryu]] come from actual fighting game franchises. Donkey Kong made an appearance as an unplayable BonusBoss in the ''Punch-Out'' reboot.
** Link was a guest in the Gamecube version of ''[[SoulSeries Soul Calibur II.]]''
** Snake was one of five Konami representatives in ''DreamMixTVWorldFighters''.
** Sonic had his own ''VirtuaFighter''-esque game, ''SonicTheFighters'' and the arena fighter ''SonicBattle''.
** Mega Man's first fighting game appearance was in ''Mega Man 2 The Power Fighters'', although he is more known from his time in the ''MarvelVsCapcom'' series. As Bad Box Art Mega Man, he also appeared in ''StreetFighterXTekken'' alongside Ryu and Pac-Man.
** Cloud has two under his belt: a guest in ''[[{{Ehrgeiz}} Ehrgeiz: God Bless The Ring]]'' with several other ''FinalFantasyVII'' characters and as the main ''FFVII'' representative in the ''DissidiaFinalFantasy'' games.
** Bayonetta was DLC for ''AnarchyReigns''.
** Pikachu, Lucario, Charizard and Mewtwo are part of the ''PokkenTournament'' roster.



** Barring Cloud, many of the DLC characters were predicted by most hardcore fans: Mewtwo, Roy and Lucas were fan-favorite veterans (the former two missing out on ''Brawl'') left out of the vanilla version. Mega Man was one of the first newcomers introduced, which made it easier for a second Capcom mascot (Ryu) to appear. A similar argument can be made for Bayonetta; besides Nintendo helping with the development and publishing of ''Bayonetta2'', fellow Sega hero Sonic returned from ''Brawl'' as well. Lastly, Corrin continued the trend of Nintendo using ''Smash'' to promote upcoming or recent titles.

*** [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Super_Smash_Bros._Melee According to Wikipedia,]] Snake was requested to be in ''Melee'' by ''Franchise/MetalGear'' creator Creator/HideoKojima, but the game was already more than halfway finished when he asked. Similarly, Sonic was intended to be a part of the roster but was excluded for the same reasons. Both characters later made it into ''Brawl.''
