[[caption-width-right:350: [[Franchise/SuperMarioBros The]] [[Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog internet]] [[UltimateShowdownOfUltimateDestiny exploded]] ''[[CueTheFlyingPigs TWICE]]'' the day this was announced. [[UpToEleven And if you thought that wasn't enough...]]]]

Let's face it, there's a reason this series is so popular: ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBros''[='s=] nature as a MassiveMultiplayerCrossover featuring many different Nintendo characters is just about every fan's wet dream. Then, sometimes, [[SugarWiki/AndTheFandomRejoiced the hype goes through the roof even more.]]
* AndTheFandomRejoiced/SuperSmashBros4

* Any new character that was confirmed to be playable, especially Snake and especially, ''especially,'' Sonic. R.O.B. and Toon Link were the only exceptions, as they were [[ReplacementScrappy Replacement Scrappies]] to many fans' dream additions. [[RescuedFromTheScrappyHeap they didn't stay hated for long, though.]]
** A long time ago, [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F4XrmjZQRQs this trailer came out]], and people were enjoying it so far. They got happy to see Meta Knight, then all of a sudden-[[UnexpectedCharacter WHOA!]] [[http://www.ssbwiki.com/Pit_%28SSBB%29 Who's this dude?]]
* "Cool, new Smash Brothers game. Wait, what's this, a new Franchise/MetalGear? What, they're discussing the game? [[GuestFighter An invitation?]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PzQJpP8M7XA YEAH!]]"
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8PgxEQuFp2c And a few months later]], after enduring years of waiting and April Fools Jokes about his appearance in Melee, Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog joins the fray complete with [[VideoGame/SonicAdventure2 Crush 40's Live and Learn]] blaring in the background, allowing players to pit Sega's iconic mascot against his long time rival. There's a reason why that screenshot from Brawl is on the main video game page.
* A more subdued moment happened when it was revealed that the character-specific battle introductions from the original Nintendo 64 ''Super Smash Bros.'' came back for ''Brawl''.
* ''Brawl's'' Stage Builder.
* Shortly before the game's release, the full soundtrack was leaked. The internet practically squealed like 5 year old girls upon learning about (and hearing) the remixes of King Dedede's theme, King K. Rool's theme, Pokemon Red's Route 1 song, and the final boss theme from Golden Sun, among other songs that can be seen in the Awesome Music page.

[[caption-width-right:350:The internet exploded multiple times that day for [[UsefulNotes/NintendoSwitch more reasons]] than [[VideoGame/{{Splatoon}} one]]...]]
* Well, it looks like the Nintendo Direct is going to end. Wait, there's more? Hmmm... [[VideoGame/{{Splatoon}} Inkling Girl and Inkling Boy]]? Fighting in a white area? Is this a por- hold on. What's with the lights dimming. What's shining on Inkling Girl? Hold on... '''[[WhamShot IS THAT THE SMASH LOGO IN HER EYE?!]]''' '''''INKLINGS ARE COMING TO SMASH???!!!''''' [[PunctuatedForEmphasis Oh.]] [[BigOMG My.]] [[HolyShitQuotient God.]]
** Also the Link seen in this trailer...[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaBreathOfTheWild He's Breath of the Wild Link, not Twilight Princess Link]]!
** The reveal that [[UpTo11 it's stated to be released in 2018 doesn't hurt, either.]]
** And contrary to what he said during the development of the last game, Daddy Sakurai is indeed returning!
** Also worth noting is that the teaser alone implied the return of 17 characters right off the bat -- Mario, Link, Ness, Yoshi, Donkey Kong, Captain Falcon, Kirby, Peach, Samus, Bowser, Sheik, Wario, Pit, Marth, Pikachu, and Fox, along with the likely implication that Zero Suit Samus will also be returning... And that's before there's even a proper reveal trailer!
