Funny / Super Smash Bros.

    open/close all folders 

    Throughout the series 
  • Jigglypuff's down-special, Rest, has it fall asleep. It seems utterly useless at first… but is actually an extremely powerful attack that K.Os as low as 25% in Melee and 50% in 3DS/Wii U. Yes, Jigglypuff's strongest attack is falling asleep. The fact that it's never explained why it does this makes it even funnier. (Not counting the Colonel's explanation of a buildup of energy in her center-of-gravity.)
  • Whenever Peach hits someone in the head with her frying pan. Bonus points if it's Bowser, Mario, or someone more serious like Meta Knight. Just imagine the characters' reaction if they spoke.
  • Starting in Melee, when a character gets knocked off-screen upwards in regular fights, there's a rare chance where instead of getting Star-KO'd, they end up getting launched into the screen. 3DS/Wii U makes this even funnier by having the character get stuck to the screen for a moment before sliding down. The look on their faces when this happens is definitely priceless. Duck Hunt's screen KO, in particular, is one good example.
  • The Hammer is one of the deadliest items in the series, but starting in Melee, there's a chance of the hammerhead falling off, resulting in the fighter frantically swinging a harmless stick. The image alone is hilarious, and it only gets funnier if you proceed to hit them with the hammerhead.
  • The Golden Hammer is even stronger than the regular Hammer, but its chance of failure is even funnier. A defective Golden Hammer is just a harmless squeaky hammer.
  • Whether you're fighting against other players or computers, any given battle in this series can be hilarious. This is usually the case when items are involved, as they add an element of randomness. Items or not, the ridiculous ways people get KO'd will usually make them laugh, often taking their loss in stride. Some players have made montages of these moments and uploaded them online, such as this one. Even awesome moments like this can make people laugh, because of how over-the-top they are.
  • Doubles as an Awesome Moment, but beating an opponent using only Falcon Punch.
  • Break Jigglypuff's shield. Watch her rocket upwards and self-destruct. Or, alternatively, cling to the ceiling for upwards of eight seconds.
  • In Multi-Man modes, most of the adversaries are generic and taken out with ease (Cruel being an exception). Sometimes, a normal playable character will show up among the generics too — and get taken out just as easily. This includes characters with high renown in their home games, like Snake or Marth; and characters who are supposed to be extremely powerful, like Ganondorf or Rosalina.
  • Peach's neutral-special is using Toad as a Human Shield.
  • Super Sudden Death matches, where you can expect multiple KOs per second. It gets even better if you set the item appearance rate to the maximum and only allow powerful items such as Bob-Ombs and Hammers.
  • Bowser's forward jump animation in Melee and Brawl is literally him doing his own rendition of Mario's jump. There's just something about it that makes it both awkward and amusing.
  • King Dedede's "ducking" animation in which he spreads out and lays on the ground in a sassy pose. Even funnier, 4 allows players to transition directly into a roll attack from it and back, allowing them to keep the pose and still defend themselves.

    Super Smash Bros. 64 
  • The original commercial. Mario, DK, Yoshi and Pikachu are seen as guys in costumes, happily skipping along a meadow while holding each other's hands as the song "So Happy Together" plays. Then Mario suddenly kicks Yoshi in the shin, and everyone starts beating the crap out of each other. For extra hilarity, after a brief Record Needle Scratch, the song resumes playing as the fight goes on.
  • A blink-and-you'll-miss-it part during the intro, which has Pikachu rolling atop a Pokéball.

    Super Smash Bros. Melee 
  • The Peach Bomber attack in its entirety. Peach throws herself at the opponent, rump-first, and if she hits it creates a fiery explosion of all things? What is in those cakes of hers? Brawl and 3DS/Wii U toned down the hilarity by making the explosion into a heart graphic.
  • Luigi's introduction in Adventure Mode. The cutscene starts as normal, with Mario jumping into the air, ready to battle the player… only to be knocked backwards by Luigi footstooling him in mid-jump.
    • This is made even better by footstool jumping not even being a thing gameplay-wise in Melee; its debut was in Brawl.
  • A sufficiently-weakened Mewtwo changes its method of climbing up ledges. It walks up. Even as a casual display of its power, it's an odd move for someone as no-nonsense as it usually is.
  • The fact that there are two extremely tiny CPU-controlled characters in the Kaiju-based event match Gargatuans. While they are obviously just there to represent civilians who are caught within the crossfire of the epic battle, it is possible to be able to win the match without even doing anything because of DK trying to get these two characters.
  • The congratulation screens when completing any of the 1P modes are pretty funny. Some examples include a tiny Bowser riding another Bowser, Captain Falcon running from F-Zero machines (they can go to 1000km/hr on the norm), and Peach trying to stop Bowser from using the hammer on Mario.
  • The notification for unlocking Pichu.
    Cute, cuddly, and a threat to itself and others… it's Pichu!
  • This image shows the full cast (minus Sheik) gazing out in front of them… with Luigi flying over all of them.
  • The Special Movie is filled with these moments:
    • After Mario saves Peach from Bowser, how does she repay him? By beating him up.
    • Donkey Kong:
      • There's one moment where he uses Hand Slap on Fox, Pikachu, and a bunch of Goldeen, causing them all to flop around like fish.
      • After ducking beneath a Banzai Bill, he looks around in confusion before he gets caught in the Banzai Bill's explosion, launching him against the screen.
      • DK is shown hanging onto a cliff with Pikachu above him, before Pikachu knocks him off. Even better, a screech in the song plays just as this happens.
    • Bowser's montage has a segment where he finds a Mr. Saturn and plays with it, only for Peach to steal it.
    • Fox has one where Ness is repeatedly trying to throw a Mr. Saturn at him while Fox's Reflector is up. The sounds Mr. Saturn makes during this makes it even funnier.
    • Pikachu has a moment where Bowser is chasing him while holding a Mr. Saturn.
    • Ice Climbers:
      • There's one moment where Nana is giant while Popo is tiny. The resulting sight is ridiculous.
      • A tiny Kirby with a Bunny Hood is seen trapped between them and dashing back and forth.
      • Popo is seen floating down with a parasol while Nana falls right past him.
    • DK is shown trying to shoot Samus with a Super Scope… that is out of ammo. Samus responds by shooting him with a fully charged Charge Beam.
    • Ness and Captain Falcon are seen bullying a shrunken Bowser by hitting him with bats, until Bowser grows back to normal, causing them to run away.
    • There's a moment in Kongo Jungle where Bowser is firing a Ray Gun, Fox is shooting his Blaster, Samus is launching missiles, and Captain Falcon is using the Super Scope's rapid fire. The image of all four of them doing this at the same time is pretty funny.
    • Mario picks up a Hammer on the Mute City stage and prepares to hit the cars, only for the hammerhead to fall off, forcing him to dodge them instead.
    • The last clip shown of the Ice Climbers is Popo switching from facing one direction to the other over and over while Nana dashes back and forth to be behind him, phasing through Popo with each pass.
    • During the video, there would be a break in the action to show off trophies, with each of them having a unique reveal done using the camera. While most of them look cool, when dealing with characters like the Mr. Saturn or the Female Wire Frame, the characters are introduced as walking around animated in a way that makes it look like a kid playing with his action figures.
  • The Moonwalk technique, which involves characters sliding backwards all while they repeatedly go into their initial dashing animation. Said animation involves the characters leaping forward, so the Moonwalk makes it look like they're trying to escape the suction of a powerful vacuum. As useful as it may be in competitive play, that doesn't stop it from looking ridiculous, especially when Captain Falcon and Ganondorf are doing it.
  • Some Anti Poop-Socking messages come up when you beat a certain number of matches, though by that time, it's already too late.
    Message: "You've played 50,000 VS. bouts! Enough! Take a break!"
    Message: "You've played 100,000 VS. mode matches! Go outside!"
  • One shot during the intro shows all of the Pokémon in the game, both playable, and the ones that come out of Pokéballs. That is, until Jigglypuff photobombs the shot.
  • The victory cutscene, just before the Congratulations image, for Young Link. It's just a montage of him drinking milk in various locations, ending with him wiping his mouth in slow motion. See it here.

    Super Smash Bros. Brawl 
  • All of Snake's codecs. Some favorites:
  • Their insight on Captain Falcon:
    Otacon: FALCON KIIICK!
  • On Lucario:
    Snake: The cornered rat will bite the cat… sounds like trouble.
    Mei Ling: Hey! When did you become so good at proverbs?
    Snake: You must have rubbed off on me.
    Mei Ling: Well, come back in one piece, and I'll teach you all the Chinese proverbs you can handle.
  • Oh, God, Luigi's:
    Snake: That guy with the mustache…
    Colonel: Ha. You mean the king of second bananas!
    Snake: Hey! That's Luigi! Show some respect!
    Colonel: Look at that pale skin. He's been living in his brother's shadow for too long.
    Snake: That's a low blow, Colonel!
    Colonel: Face it, Snake! Once a kid brother, always a kid brother!
    Snake: Colonel, what's gotten into you?!
    Colonel: La li lu le lo! La li lu le lo! La li lu le lo!
    Snake: Colonel, snap out of it! Colonel?! COOOOOOOOOOLONEEEEEEEEL!
  • On Marth, these two lines:
    Mei Ling: Snake, have you heard the saying "politics make strange bedfellows"?
    Snake: Don't tell me that's a Chinese proverb.
  • Meta Knight's:
    Snake: What kind of weirdo puts their face on the bow of a ship, anyway?
    Mei Ling: Maybe he's a little narcissistic. Kind of like someone else I know…
    Snake: Really… And who would that be?
    Mei Ling: Use your imagination…
  • On Olimar:
    Mei Ling: Snake, have you ever heard the ancient Chinese story, "The Vain Ocean Of Wealth"?
    Snake: I've been waiting for the movie.
  • Discussing Peach and her relationship to Mario:
    Mei Ling: But still, don't you think it's romantic? I mean, to have a guy who's always there for you?
    Snake: If he was smart, he'd tell her to stop getting kidnapped.
    Mei Ling: …You don't get a lot of dates, do you, Snake?
  • Pikachu's:
    Mei Ling: Could you catch Pikachu for me? Pleeeeeease?
    Snake: Oh, come on! What do I look like, a Pokémon Trainer?
    Mei Ling: Fine… Sorry I asked.
  • Pit:
    Otacon: He used to be a weakling, but countless trials over the years have toughened him up.
    Snake: By trials, you mean game overs?
    Otacon: Yeah, you'd know all about that.
  • On the Pokémon Trainer's Pokémon:
    Colonel: Let's do this together, partner.
    Snake: Whatever you say, Colonel.
    • Even better in context. (Colonel has just delivered a spiel on how soldiers and commanders rely on each other for maximum effectiveness, effectively making them a team. Snake is… skeptical of this viewpoint.)
  • Jigglypuff:
    Snake: Aw, there's a big eyeball walking around here…
    Colonel: That's just Jigglypuff.
    Snake: Jigglypuff? That some kind of marshmallow?
  • Oh, lordy, Sonic:
    Snake: *grumbles*
    Otacon: Snake, what is it?
    Snake: Something about that hedgehog rubs me the wrong way.
    Otacon: …oh, you mean Sonic the Hedgehog! But everyone loves Sonic! He's a big star! Do you have any idea how excited people are that he's here in Brawl?
    Snake: Yeah, I know, but there's something about him I just don't like.
    Otacon: But…why? You must have some kind of reason?
    Snake: …nope. Just don't like him.
    • The Wild Mass Guessing this has spawned is incredible. So far, the most prominent theory seems to be that this is an Actor Allusion; Snake's Japanese voice actor's father voices Dr. Eggman.
  • One simple line on Wolf:
    Snake: Wolf. Real imaginative name.
  • And finally, Zero Suit Samus:
    Snake: Mei Ling, Samus took her clothes off!
    Mei Ling: That's Zero Suit Samus, Snake.
    Snake: Without that bulky Power Suit, she's gotten a lot more agile… maybe if I took off all this heavy gear I could chase her.
    Mei Ling: Uh, yeah, you wish.
    Snake: Her loss.
  • "Copy, Snake! This is Slippy!"
  • Don't forget Kirby.
    Otacon: Snake! Watch out!
    Snake: For what? That pink marshmallow?
  • What about Wario?
    Colonel: He (Wario) also attacks by farting. He can fart to fly around, too.
    Snake: By… farting. Are you kidding me?!
    Colonel: Sadly, no. I am not kidding.
  • And this line about Bowser:
    Colonel: Careful, Snake! That's the great and powerful Bowser!
    Snake: Bowser? Looks like a cheap movie monster.
  • No love for Link?
    Snake: Gear is only useful when it's used at the right time and place. Just lugging a ton of it doesn't do you any good.
    Otacon: I, uh... I wouldn't be talking if I were you, Snake.
    Snake: What's that supposed to mean?
    Otacon: You tell me, mister utility belt.

The rest of the game
  • The original E3 2006 trailer opens with Mario, Kirby, Link, and Pikachu in their Melee models running towards each other on a black screen. Then, the Battlefield from Brawl appears in the background as everyone changes to their updated Brawl models… Except for Kirby, who didn't have a game of his own on the Wii at the time. Kirby himself looks confused.
    • Wario's role in the trailer. After several awesome moments, he crashes in on his bike, surrounded by the other characters. Wario gets up, sees the others, grins sheepishly… and then the waft begins charging. The Smashers recoil a bit and it cuts to Wario about to unleash it. We then get a split-second shot of everyone's Mass "Oh, Crap!" before the explosion.
  • The very fact that Wario attacks by farting! Even funnier is that Wario can get himself KO'd by using a fully charged Wario Waft to fly out of the stage bounds.
  • Back when Brawl was first released in Japan, we had this memorable gem during gameplay, frequently called "the Failmaster" on YouTube.
  • It's hilarious to watch characters flail around with Superspicy Curry. Particularly if it's someone like Ganondorf, Marth, or even R.O.B.
  • Whenever the crowd cheers for a character, it sounds like the entire audience is getting in on it… unless you're playing as Luigi, in which only a few people are cheering for him.
  • This is what the item description for the Banana Peel says. "Just makes people slip. What did you expect?"
  • The item description for Mr. Saturn. It just reads, "Pwaaaaah. Pwaaaaah."
  • In Brawl, Assist Trophies have a chance to spawn Mr. Resetti. Normally, this means you spend more than a minute with a huge text box spouting an angry rant at you. However, since Resetti is a mole, he's stuck on whatever platform he spawns on, which means his platform can collapse or scroll offscreen. If he does, not only does his rant end early, but there's a special, highly amusing line of dialogue for when this happens.
    "H-hey! Don't you ditch me, punk!"
  • Any time Resetti does an "impression" of one of the characters on the field. It only shows up as plain text, but it's hilarious to imagine him attempting to sound like one of the characters.
  • The fact that one of King Dedede's dash attack (which is considered one of the most powerful dashes in the game) is HIM TRIPPING (just like in the Kirby games). The fact it can be used to KO opponents like crazy is hilarious. Exaggerated in this video.
  • Toon Link's victory poses, the first one is simply playing the Wind Waker and posing. The second is running after a pig, catching it and holding it over his head… the last one has him running after the same pig before he trips, ending with him on the floor, rubbing his rear off the pain.
  • There's something stupidly entertaining about this cutscene, at the point where Lucario lifts up Snake's box.

  • Brawl- takes the liberty of putting voice clips in hilarious places. Example: Snake's "Nom nom nom… Tasty." and Captain Falcon's "YESZ!!!" But by far Peach's forward throw takes the cake. "This is fun! *slap*"
  • Pikaman is probably either this or Nightmare Fuel. Or both.

    Super Smash Bros. for Wii U/Nintendo 3DS 
  • The E3 2013 trailer:
    • Villager managing to give Mario a death glare through that blissful expression. This caused Villager to gain a reputation as a Memetic Psychopath within MINUTES of his announcement.
    • Mario's face when he almost gets hit by flying Metal Blades in Mega Man's Reveal Trailer for Smash Bros. 4.
  • In Wii Fit Trainer's Reveal Trailer:
    • Mario, Link, and Kirby are "playing" Wii Fit, trying to hold the tree pose when she casually walks up, taps Mario on the shoulder, then strikes another pose, OHKOing all three of them.
    • What makes it even funnier is that after this, the game says "Great, keep it up!". It's as if she was encouraged for beating the crap out of people.
    • What also makes it funnier is how they do the pose. Mario can't get his arms over his hat, Kirby (having no legs) just puts his foot over the other and can't get his arms over his head because he's too round. Link (having a more realistically human shape than the others) is the only one doing the pose right, but he still has trouble keeping it.
    • And if you pause at the right time, you see Mario was smashed down, then up, then BACK DOWN, before finally smashing up off the screen.
  • If Mr. Sakurai wants it, my body is ready.
  • Rosalina's Trailer:
    • It starts off with Kirby and his Warp Star causing chaos on Rainbow Road. The Mother of the Cosmos gives him a time out.
    • When the race comes to a halt, Donkey Kong pokes Kirby curiously a couple of times.
    • Kirby and Luma dancing at the end, with Rosalina apparently conducting them and the other racers just looking on in the background.
  • In Little Mac's debut trailer:
  • The Smash Bros. Direct had plenty of these moments.
    • The various little fake-outs that were done, like pretending that Zero Suit Samus was deconfirmed, complete with showing an image of her Brawl incarnation fading to black and white, as if to say she is only a memory now.
    • How the Motion-Sensor Bomb is demonstrated: Link is standing close to Peach while Zelda is standing behind him, Zelda throws the bomb, then waves at Link to come over to her. Link falls for it hook, line, and sinker.
      • This is even funnier if you saw some of the pictures on the official website and the pics of the day, as there was a Running Gag of Link having an affair with Peach. Woman Scorned indeed.
    • Before showing the Pokémon that would be usable in the game, we were treated to Sakurai replaced with a stuffed Substitute doll.
      • This moment is even better after Greninja's reveal; the frog ninja has Substitute as one of its moves.
    • Sakurai actually referencing the "No items! Fox Only! Final Destination!" meme with "For Glory" mode for online multiplayer, minus the "Fox only!" part.
    • The fact that one of the Assist Trophies is the Color TV Game 15! A video game fighting inside of a video game! Complete with a scoreboard at the top of the screen.
    • In one of the Trophy Quizzes, the answer seems obvious that it is Palutena. But nope, it's Pseudo-Palutena. What makes it even better is that upon "her" reveal, the camera is zoomed in on "her" face to create a Jump Scare-like effect.
      • Even meaner is that this was done before Palutena's widely-anticipated reveal as a playable character, so the thought of her being a mere trophy caused many a proverbial heart attack. People were happy to be wrong.
    • Mega Man's Crash Bomber special lands on Yoshi's tail. The dinosaur spins around, (presumably trying to take it off,) before it explodes.
    • Villager's Pocket move continues to be hilarious, with the trailer showing him stealing a Spring from under Sonic (which in retrospect, is now impossible to do), and stealing Zelda's summoned Phantom and then attacking her with her own Phantom.
    • When demonstrating how Lucario's aura was buffed, Sakurai demonstrates a potential downside to it by having Lucario use his Up-Special and flying over the stage, self-destructing.
    • A blink-and-you'll-miss-it moment during Rosalina's moveset explanation, when it gets to her Star Bits attack. Rosalina sends the Luma out to attack Diddy Kong, but this leaves her open for Donkey Kong to grab and carry her off in the background. The Mother of Cosmos was ape-napped. Also, Diddy Kong scratches his behind right before the scene change.
    • Sakurai's comments on Little Mac, ranging from his poor air moves (complete with funny graphic) and poor recovery (And That's Terrible) to questioning if Giga Mac and Little Mac are the same person.
    • When Charizard enters the fray, each of the fighters prepares to launch an attack. Link throws the Gale Boomerang, Kirby fires a star from the Star Rod, Samus fires a missile, Mario runs at Charizard head on, and Olimar? He throws a Pikmin at it, and the Pikmin doesn't even reach it.
    • At one point in Greninja's trailer, Mario and Luigi try to sneak up on Lucario and Greninja with Poké Balls in hand.
  • E3 2014. So how do you promote the Mii Fighters? By making Reggie and Iwata fight each other to the death, and then having their Miis duke it out.
  • Palutena's trailer:
    • How does she make her entrance? By activating Pit's Power of Flight to toss him away screaming.
    • When Palutena showcases what appears to be her Final Smash on Yoshi and Samus, she comes down and we're treated to Pit "crouching" while she merely spins, crosses her arms, and gives him a look while we hear him say "You don't have to prove anything to ME, Lady Palutena!" Those who've played Uprising can just IMAGINE the expression on his face.
    • Just as she mentions how the rest of the fighters are Worthy Opponents, the screen cuts to King Dedede doing his "crouching" pose.
    • Villager watering Pikmin in a Freeze-Frame Bonus.
  • Pac-Man's trailer:
  • In Lucina and Robin's trailer:
    • Chrom is essentially a Butt-Monkey in this trailer. Him being beaten by Captain Falcon isn't funny on its own, until you hear his only line in the trailer, practically lampshading how he's gotten the short end of the stick compared to his daughter and friend.
      Chrom: I suppose I'll get my chance another day.
    • Then there's the bluntness of the text as Chrom's role in Robin's Final Smash is revealed.
    • Lucina isn't completely free of this herself. During the beginning, her debut states "Lucina wakes her blade?!" Then Robin shows up with his own debut card, and it appears as he's stealing the spot of both of his companions.
    • Robin gets a jab…or rather, female Robin. At the end of the trailer.
      P.S. Also you can play as female Robin!
  • Shulk's trailer:
    • His reveal trailer is named Looks like we don't have a choice!, after what Shulk would say when the party was facing powerful enemies. While it's most likely referring to the fact that his opponents in Smash Bros. are powerful, it also seems like a sly jab at the leak.
    • In the beginning, Bowser lets out a mighty roar… only for a butterfly to fly past him. Even better, he gets distracted by said butterfly enough to let down his guard!
    • Shulk casually steals his friend's catchphrase.
      Shulk: Now it's Shulk time!
    • Towards the end of the trailer, Shulk is seen jumping thrice. While the first two jumps have him in his normal clothes, the third one has him in his swimwear. The guy stripped his clothes off!
  • Xander Mobus, the voice of the announcer, Master Hand, and Crazy Hand, has a half-hour's worth of hilarity as he spends the ENTIRE October 2014 Nintendo Direct hamming it up like there's no tomorrow. It is, of course, glorious.
    Xander Mobus: "On the Game Pad, there's a microphone!"
  • During the 50-Fact Extravaganza, a bar graph displaying the amount of music on the 3DS and Wii U versions is shown. The bar for the Wii U fills up to about the size of the 3DS bar…then suddenly smashes into the side of the screen, and keeps going, eventually becoming about 3 times as long, as Xander declares that the difference is "not even comparable!"
  • Near the end of Bowser Jr.'s trailer, there's a shot of Bowser Jr. and the seven Koopalings on Battlefield… Iggy's clown car is attempting to eat a cake, Roy's car is boxing against a Sandbag, Morton is wildly swinging a hammer around, Wendy is swinging around a Star Rod, Ludwig is swinging a Fire Bar at Lemmy… who is equipped with a Back Shield and happens to be facing the opposite direction, and Bowser Jr. sends out a Mechakoopa to Larry… who picks it up and throws it back at Bowser Jr, who then catches it. They proceed to throw it back and forth, until eventually Bowser Jr. refuses to throw it back, prompting Larry's car to stick its tongue out at him.
  • At one point, we see the Wrecking Crew stage in action. Marth gets crushed by a falling barrel… and you can see a pair of eyes poking out of the barrel.
  • The opening of the Wii U version has some moments.
    • Luigi dodges Ganondorf's Warlock Punch… with his side taunt.
    • Dedede inhales Pac-Man's power pellet, only for Pac-Man to end up taking a bite out of him.
    • A moment after that, Pac-Man scratches his head as Jigglypuff is caught by Galaga, just spinning in place like a ball.
    • And towards the end as the fighters dash forward, you see Donkey Kong carrying Kirby along behind everyone.
  • Duck Hunt's trailer:
    • Mario does a Bring It gesture as an 8-bit sprite from the first Super Mario Bros..
    • The Duck Hunt team are introduced getting startled by their introductory splash. It could also be interpreted as the two getting bonked by the text, seeing as the text is shaking a little bit.
    • Most of the gameplay shown in Duck Hunt's trailer is simply the dog doing goofy stuff in time with the music.
    • Duck Hunt Dog isn't really feeling it.
    • The demonstration of Duck Hunt's smash attacks shows a hand with a Zapper aiming at the screen…and the trailer has to note that Super Smash Bros. for Wii U isn't compatible with actual Zappers.
    • Pay close attention to the Nintendo Seal of Quality on Duck Hunt's promotional art. Nintendo has approved and guaranteed hunting season is now open.
  • Mewtwo's trailer:
    • In a similar vein to Greninja's trailer, Ness sneaks up on Mewtwo with a Master Ball in hand. It's even Shiny!
    • Each time Ness appears, he acts similar to a Pokémon Trainer.
    • At one point, Mewtwo is shown getting attacked by a lone blue Pikmin. It doesn't even react.
    • Mewtwo attacks Goldeen. If you are one of the people who hates Goldeen because it does nothing in Smash, then it's satisfying to see Mewtwo attack it.
    • At the very end of the trailer, Mewtwo uses its Final Smash to transform into Mega Mewtwo Y and take out Dr. Mario, Wario, and Robin. Afterwards, Mewtwo taunts and guess what happens? Pikachu booty crawls from behind. Hilarious and kind of a nod to both Little Mac's trailer and the very first SSB 4 trailer that was released.
    • At one point, Mewtwo is riding Gogoat on the Bridge Eldin shooting off a Ray Gun wildly. You can almost imagine it thinking "Yippie-ki-yay." in a dead-serious tone.
    • Mewtwo getting footstooled by a smaller Greninja. Mewtwo proceeds to chase after it.
    • On Jungle Hijinx, Mewtwo smacks Luigi into a barrel cannon which sends him flying right into a Screaming Pillar.
  • Lucas' Trailer:
    • Lucas introduces the Rope Snake to the Sable Prince.
    • At one point Sonic runs by, and Lucas trips (or rather, taunts.)
    • The trailer starts with Ness getting his ass kicked by several of the other characters. In one bit, Ness tries to launch himself back onto the stage with PK Thunder… only for Villager to Pocket it and fly away.
  • Roy's Trailer:
    • After his introductory pose, Roy makes his grand entrance by launching the other Roy clear off the screen.
    • Roy setting himself on fire with his Flare Blade.
    • Marth counters Robin, then gets countered by Ike, who gets countered by Roy, all in the same sequence.
    • A group of eight Roys perform a chain of Flare Blades…only for all of them except for the one in the very back to be knocked out.
  • Ryu's Trailer:
    • Ryu does a few low kicks on Duck Hunt's gunman, causing his pants to drop.
    • Ryu runs into Heihachi. Again.
  • Cloud's Trailer:
    • His first line in the trailer is "Never thought I'd see the day.", summing up many reactions.
    • And his tagline? Cloud Storms into battle!
    • Cloud getting seasick while riding on the King of Red Lions.
    • Cloud steals Wario's bike after forcing him off.
    • Cloud using Climhazzard to... pop a balloon carrying a piece of cake on the Animal Crossing stage. And Villager's happy reaction to it.
    • At the end of the trailer, Cloud smells Chocobo. The camera then pans to a bunch of shrunken Mii fighters running around behind him, along with one in the foreground asleep, all in Chocobo hats.
    • At the very end, Square Enix is added to the copyright info with a little plink noise.
  • Corrin's Trailer:
    • The trailer starts at the pivotal moment in Fire Emblem Fates...only for a fourth option to appear for joining Smash. Ryoma and Xander are rightly baffled by Corrin's bizarre choice to ditch the family conflict for a seemingly pointless tournament. All with the utmost seriousness.
    Ryoma: What are you doing? Corrin!
    Corrin: Sorry, Big Brother. But I've made my decision.
    Xander: How could you? You're giving up on us and battling completely unknown opponents!
    • The Stinger has Corrin get chased by Pac-Man's Final Smash...then he chases Pac-Man with a Dragon Lunge on a rolling crate.
    • His family's confused reactions to the gender-swapped female alt.
  • Bayonetta's trailer:
    • During her trailer, you can just feel Bayonetta's animosity towards the cast of Kid Icarus.
    Bayonetta: If you want to learn how to talk to a lady, ask your mum.
    • For added hilarity for the above line, the clip what is used when she says it has her fighting against Bowser Jr., who doesn't even know who his mother is.
      • Those familiar with the story of Fire Emblem Fates can find some dark humor in the fact that the same clip also has Bayonetta fighting Corrin, whose mother dies early on in Fates protecting them from an explosion.
    • Bayonetta uses Witch Time to avoid Pikachu's Skull Bash...then uses the Gust Bellows to blow him all the way off the stage at an incredible speed.
    • Seeing Bayonetta Kirby mimic Bullet Climax is a ridiculously silly sight to behold. It's all in the legs.
    • When Bayonetta breaks out her Wicked Weaves, Pit makes a statement that's... easy to take the wrong way.
    Pit: "They're huge!".
    • Villager attempts to catch a tiny Butterfly Bayonetta with his net.
    • A blink-and-miss moment: Sakurai suddenly puts on a pair of glasses after her reveal.
  • The final clip show at the end of the December 15, 2015 presentation included one last "Peach flirting with Link" gag(and getting smacked by Zelda for it).
    • Marth holding on to a ledge only for Dr. Mario to step on his hand, causing him to fall down.
    • Lucina putting on her mask to shade herself from the brightness of Wii Fit Trainer's Sun Salutation.
    • Also, Ryu and Dark Pit getting oil drums dropped over them by Sheik and Greninja.
    • Ness, Samus and Yoshi playing base-egg.
    • Bayonetta (and a tiny Game & Watch) ducking a simultaneous Falcon/Warlock Punch.

  • Every character has some amusing reactions when crashing into the screen, but special mention must go to Wii Fit Trainer, who keeps doing exercises even after being thrown at the camera.
  • Certain characters have exclusive equipment types like Hammers for King Dedede. The Wii Fit Trainer's exclusive equipment? Protein supplements.
    • Corrin can use shoes-related equipments... While he/she's barefoot.
  • Pretty much EVERY time Donkey Kong has a prominent appearance in a trailer or promotional screenshot.
  • Villager's Final Smash? Getting Tom Nook and his nephews to build an exploding house over the opponent.
  • Wii Fit Trainer as a whole because their moves are ridiculously funny: yoga poses for every single thing. Yes, this includes the Final Smash. They even make a yoga pose when they're being smacked into the screen.
    • This official poster shows silhouettes of the female Trainer, Mario, Link, Kirby, Pit, Donkey Kong, and Samus doing the tree pose.
    • One of Trainer's custom special moves is Deep Breathing so hard that the area around them explodes. The move's description even says that it's a Dangerous Forbidden Technique.
    • The fact that she's apparently in-universe Nightmare Fuel for Luigi. In his Ending movie, he runs from a giant Wii Fit Trainer, and the All-Star picture for her shows Luigi cowering while a bunch of hunched over, Zombie-like Wii Fit Trainers close in.
  • Sakurai confirms that Miis are going to be new fighters, and near-completely customizable, and admits that, with this new system, you can have media celebrities fight each other if you so choose, even showing examples like Ice-T, Elijah Wood, and ''Abraham Lincoln'', complete with the announcement screens the game uses.
  • Pac-Man's promotional artwork features 8-bit versions of several smashers in Pac-Man's iconic maze, all with some silliness going on such as Link holding a cherry in his Item Get! pose, and Kirby eating a bunch of Pac-Dots.
  • Pac-Man SMILING while drowning is either gut-bustingly hilarious or just plain creepy.
    • Continuing the smile trend, Jigglypuff puts him to sleep at around 6:30. His reaction to this is like "Oh, okay". His sleep pose is relaxed. Amd then he wakes up, still smiling, as if thanking her. He really doesn't give a crap.
  • Shulk joins the battle… in his swimwear!!
  • Several of Duck Hunt's "attacks" are really just the dog barely avoiding being shot. It may be the hunter watching out for him, but you can imagine it being the hunter barely missing him.
    • Duck Hunt's Final Smash involves a flock of ducks acting as Disturbed Doves to knock the targets into another place (like Captain Falcon dropping them on the racetrack for his) as a group of desperadoes shoot up the ducks and targets, the last scene showing one of the characters spinning through the air in dramatic slow-mo.
  • Duck Hunt didn't have their own stage in the 3DS version before September 30th, 2015, so they had to share stages with other characters that don't have a stage in that version (this also includes R.O.B. and the Wii Fit Trainer). These include the Battlefield stage (only when you unlock them), the Balloon Fighter stage, Picto Chat, and hilariously, the Living Room/Nintendogs stage.
  • The fact that the Duck Hunt dog is even a playable character.
  • The way the announcer pronounces "Duck Hunt" is very peculiar, and pretty fitting considering most people's opinion of the dog in his original game
    • Even Xander Mobus, the voice of the announcer, had to be careful how he said it, having this in mind.
  • Turning the camera to get a look under Rosalina's dress leads to a wonderful view… of the cosmos. When Sakurai said in Miiverse during development that it's said that Rosalina holds the cosmos under her gown, he was not joking.
  • For his grab pummel, Bowser Jr. hits his opponent with a toy hammer.
  • King Dedede's new down tilt attack is him doing a combat roll. It's as silly as it sounds.
    • Even funnier if done from his relaxed, reclining crouching pose, and then continuing to hold down after it's done, watching him do an Unnecessary Combat Roll into a "draw me like one of your french girls" position.
  • Bowser Jr.'s neutral special has the Koopa Clown Car fire a cannon. Kirby can copy this ability, but what does he do since he doesn't have a Clown Car? The cannon emerges from his mouth!
  • If Robin successfully lands Nosferatu, they make a disgusted "bleh" noise as if the blood or whatever they're draining from their opponent tastes bad.
  • Luigi can still get stuck in a wall like in Brawl, but this time the momentum causes his body to spasm uncontrollably before he decides to pull himself out.
  • The way you give equipment to amiibo by "feeding" it to them… complete with what sounds like a munching noise.
  • Most of the other characters' victory animations has them jumping for joy or posing with pride. One of Dr. Mario's victory animations is him simply staring intently at the screen in a stereotypical doctor kind of way.
  • It's rather humorous to hear Palutena yell "Oh no!" upon being launched offstage.
  • Want to play on Gaur Plain as Olimar or Alph? Hope you're not the second player. The Pikmin he raises from the ground during the countdown to the fight are going to fall off the ledge.
  • Really, there is nothing more hilarious and epic then successfully performing Ganoncide. Side special an opponent trying to recover and then Ganon will grab them and dunk them into the ground. It's better in 3DS/Wii U because he always wins whereas in Brawl the results are unpredictable: win, loss, or sudden death thanks to tying.
  • This video is a compilation of stuff Villager can pocket. Compounded with the fact it's thrown back just as fast prior to being pocketed, the sheer absurdity is hilarious.
  • Step 1: Play as Kirby. Step 2: Stand on a breakable platform. Step 3: Spam your side special until the platform breaks beneath you, but do NOT fully charge it. Step 4: Watch Kirby (almost) soar through the air after it breaks. Unfortunately, it doesn't work on the bridge in Gerudo Valley.
  • Ryu's on-screen appearance is just him casually walking onto the stage from the background. It's just so jarring compared to the others. It can especially be funny if you go to a stage like Temple and see him walk out of a wall.
  • One of Ryu's quotes when he gets KO'd is simply, "What?"
  • Cloud's victory theme is a remix of the victory fanfare of Final Fantasy VII. Chances are, fans of said game got a chuckle out of hearing it for the first time, because this is the only victory theme in the game that loops, much like the fanfare does in FFVII.
  • Bayonetta's pummel is a bitch slap. Enough said.

  • King Dedede is back and making good use of his improved facial animations. In the image before the one before on King Dedede's character page, he's lying down on the floor while Wii Fit Trainer is facing his direction, making the image that came after even more hilarious, considering Dedede's weight and personality.
  • The pic of the day for February 10, 2014, has this caption: "A bored-looking dog staring at the TV… Occasionally, the Super Smash Bros. series really makes me confused about what I'm creating."
  • This screenshot posted on the Smash Bros. website after Zero Suit Samus was confirmed. Samus wearing a bunny hood is fanservice to the point where it borders on parody. Even better, Luigi and Dedede are right behind her, and Samus's expression gives the impression that she's not thrilled about this at all, or perhaps annoyed that they're ignoring her. Also she appears to be on fire from Spicy Currynote .
  • For April 23, 2014, we have Charizard biting Waddle Dee's face. Sakurai says "Don't eat him. You can't eat him."
  • On May 2, 2014, we have the Assist Trophy Dillon introduced, with Sakurai noting that "He may rival Sonic in the art of rolling." Sonic's expression is priceless.
  • A series of photos shows Princess Peach stealing Link from Zelda.
  • Hours before the big stream that revealed Lucina, Robin, and Captain Falcon, his Pic of the Day showed a trophy…of Rayman.
  • The caption for July 14, 2014, has even Sakurai wondering when Captain Falcon will get another game of his own.
  • The pic of the day for July 18th has Mario and Little Mac suffering a Screen K.O. But instead of simply bouncing off like in Brawl, their faces are smushed against the screen. Even better, the Villager is smiling on the stage.
  • This one's going to need a little context: before Meta Knight's reveal, there was a picture highlighting the new feature of Mii costumes. One of the two Miis in the picture had Meta-Knight's mask on, which led to no little speculation on Meta-Knight's return. Fast-Forward to Meta-Knight's reveal picture with Sakurai speaking as Meta-Knight saying he "introduced that imposter to his sword". Yup, Sakurai just implied Meta-Knight straight-up KO'd a Mii for daring to steal his look. R.I.P. Miita Knight.
  • One of Shulk's pictures on the website jokingly turns him into a pro wrestler, taking advantage of his shirtless alternate costume and all.
  • There is an official screenshot of Falco on the boxing ring stage looking like he is about to majestically body slam Luigi on the floor, with the previous gag of shirtless wrestler Shulk right behind him.
  • The pic of the day for October 30, 2014, has the Sablé Prince sticking his finger into a sobbing Katie's nose. And in the follow-up pic, he has Saharah taste his finger.
  • Intensify your activity by dodging a rampaging car. Imagine that line in the Wii Fit Trainer's voice and try not to laugh. You have been dared.
  • Ganondorf, like Dedede, has had his facial expressions improved. Now, he looks like a sassy teenage girl. Yes, he actually makes that face in-game.
  • Zelda's expressiveness has also been improved. Though she still looks like this for the most part during gameplay, if she stands near a ledge, she will instead look like this.
  • Ryu's promotional art is a pretty neat throwback to this picture, but what sells it is that Princess Peach of all people is the one in Chun-Li's place.
    • Not to mention Wii Fit Trainer in Zangief's.
    • Also, Pac-Man takes Blanka's place, somehow eating a bamboo stick while retaining his iconic smiley face.
  • Thought Roy sending off Roy Koopa in his reveal trailer wasn't enough? One official screenshot has FE!Roy fist pump as Roy Koopa flails about in magma.
  • Bayonetta's artwork poster is amazing in its detail of characters battling for the forces of light and dark, but some details are pretty funny.
  • Corrin's promotional art is a spectacle to behold as both genders of the character are fighting against some of Nintendo's best. But then you notice Xander, Elise, and Ryoma in the background with their mouths wide open...
  • One official screenshot for Bayonetta has the Mario Bros. carry gifts for her, as a reference to the intro of Bayonetta 2 when Enzo had to carry her Christmas purchases.

Event Matches
  • Four Sword Adventures gives us this:
    The Four Sword has split Link into four! Now, they can join forces to save the wor- Nope, they're fighting each other again…
  • The event Princess Punch-Up:
    It's princess against princess in a royal showdown! Looks like their bodyguards just became obsolete.

  • Little Mac's out-of-shape Captain Rainbow appearance shows up as a trophy in Wii U.
  • How is Dr. Wily portrayed in his trophy? Begging for mercy like he always does!
  • Look at the Giga Bowser trophy. If you look closely, you'll notice that Peach is shoving Mario out of the way, armed with a frying pan as if she's saying "Move over, I got this."
  • Pokémon Trainer's trophy references his past experience in Brawl to the lyrics of the Pokémon anime's original theme of all things.
    "Back in Super Smash Bros. Brawl, he fought to be the very best — like no one ever was. To smash them was his real test — to launch them was his cause!"
  • Karate Joe's trophy description in the PAL version of the game makes a subtle reference to the "halo is a pretty cool guy" meme.
    "Karate Joe is a pretty cool guy. He punches flowerpots, bulbs, and exploding barrels without even the slightest hesitation. Truly, he fears nothing."
  • The trophy for the Steel Diver item refers to the weapon as a Sub-machine gun.
  • The entry for Thwomp:
    "Have you ever wondered what it would be like to have a Thwomp of your own? If anyone tried to break into your house, it would just go "THWOMP!" right on their head. Yep, a Thwomp would make a great home-security system. Unfortunately, they're not available in shops. Sad times."
  • The Hurricane of Puns for the entry on Cuccos:
    "Now here's a creature that's just poultry in motion. It usually minds its own business, but if you attack it, the chickens will come home to roost—by body-slamming you over... and over... A pretty fowl tactic if you ask us. It's almost futile to fight back, and eventually they'll lose interest and stop driving you Cucco."
  • The trophy of Samus in the Varia suit cribs a certain infamous Miiverse post:
    "In a feature quite unique to the Metroid series, it lets her morph into a ball instead of having to crawl!"
  • The description for the Rover trophy:
    "This kitty is very outgoing, always looking to meet and learn about new people. He'll ask you all sorts of questions the first time you meet. Hopefully you don't respond with random nonsense, since you'll be stuck with your answers. Who wants to live in a town called 'AAAAAAA', anyway?"
  • The description for the 1-Up Mushroom trophy:
    "Eating one of these mushrooms will add another you. "1-Up." Even just saying it aloud feels so right. "Was getting more 1-Ups and increasing the number of us the adventure's ultimate objective?" All the Marios got together and discussed this theory. The end."
  • The start of the description for the Porky Statue trophy:
    "A statue of Porky built under the orders of Porky to honour the great exploits of Porky as acknowledged by Porky."
  • Another Hurricane of Puns from the Pit (Eggplant) trophy:
    "Let's squash a misconception right now — there is nothing worse than being turned into an eggplant. Just lettuce tell you, being hit by an eggplant bomb is humiliating. It leafs you without without mushroom to manuever and also makes you a laughing stalk of your friends. (We're not sorry.)"
  • The description for Fly Guys has this gem:
    "You could say these ones are… pretty fly for a Shy Guy. No? Never mind."
  • The description for Souflees.
    "We could say it's a cake, but that would be a lie."
  • Luigi's trophy description. Poor guy can never catch a break.
    "Luigi recently celebrated his 30th anniversary with The Year of Luigi, but all that attention just made him even more shy and awkward."
  • The Mini-Yoshi's trophy description:
    "In Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door, this young Yoshi first appears as just an egg. After breaking out of his shell, though, the rascal's cheek and ultra-competitive nature run rampant. He's strong for a little lad and can even carry Mario, who he calls Gonzales. There's a funny reason for that, and it's–oh, we've run out of space. Sorry."
  • This gem at the end of the CD's trophy description:
    "Yes, it IS a shame you can't also throw the CD at a foe, but not everything in life is for throwing at people."
  • The Inkling trophy's description is an endless stream of fish and squid puns. Which is about par for the course considering how punny Splatoon is to begin with.

  • King Dedede can't copy abilities like Kirby with his Inhale move because "Dedede is already perfect".
  • Meta Knight immediately goes into his infinite neutral when you press "A" because "Meta Knight doesn't do standard attacks".
  • Eating food in Ashley's zone of darkness causes damage instead of healing it. It's Pit's worst nightmare.
  • The fire marshal says you can't play every stage in 8-player Smash. However, there are more stages available for 5 or 6 players than for 7 or 8.
  • Unlike Link's down aerial, Toon Link's doesn't bounce up when it hits a foe. If you try to dunk someone with it, you're gonna have a bad time.
  • Kirby can steal a copy ability from another Kirby who's already copied someone else's ability. Confused yet?
  • (Regarding Pauline) She was originally named "Lady". We've come a long way.
  • (Regarding Norfair) Seriously, the floor is lava.
  • (Regarding Ryu's Shoryuken) Input forward, down, down-forward for 1.2x attack power. Think you can pull it off? SURE YOU CAN!

  • In Find Mii/Streetpass Quest, it is possible to hit the cage where your Mii is trapped. If it is hit long enough, the cage will fly away and you will see your Mii get Star K.O'd!
    • Also, some Final Smashes are capable of dealing knockback to the trapped Mii. however, most Final Smashes, while in use, freeze all stage elements (excluding bosses). This means you can launch a flurry of sword beams at the cage while it sits completely still, then, after you've stopped, it spontaneously rockets off the screen.
    • You can use the customizability of Mii Fighters and of your personal Mii to have Reggie punching Reggie to protect the gunned-down Reggie while Reggie watches from above on top of a cage containing the captured Reggie.
  • In Kalos Pokémon League, the Water-type room has a Wailord which, rather than coming out of the Pokéball, floats down when the stage turns into the room and then floats up when the room changes into something else. Its rather silly to see a 47 feet long whale do something like that.
    • Well, Wailord is the Float Whale Pokémon! It's only 877.4 lbs. so that probably explains a few things.
  • In the Wii U version of Boxing Ring, each character gets a title that's shown on the scoreboard in the background, some of them in the American version of the game are hilarious.
    • What's Duck Hunt's title? "Bark, Quack, Boom!"
    • What's Pikachu's? "Pika Pika!" (literally).
    • Wario's? "Scoundrel with a Fart Of Gold".
  • If you're playing on Gaur Plain, a lot of Metal Face's dialogue can actually be quite entertaining.
    "Whatever you're doing, it looks…smashing! Ahahahaha!"
    "Maybe I'll watch and give you a few pointers!"
    "Heh, look at the time! See ya, kiddies!"
  • If you make special stages in a particular way, you may glitch up the physics engine in a funny way. For example, ground planes shaped in a certain way can cause items to not only vibrate, but also repeatedly produce the sound they tend to make when they land.
  • If they don't make you cringe, hilariously inappropriate Miiverse posts that slip into the Miiverse stage may cause a laugh riot.

Palutena's Guidance
  • Like the Snake codecs before them, the Palutena's Guidance conversations are full of hilarious moments.

  • In the conversation for Robin, Chrom shows up and continues his Butt-Monkey status from Robin and Lucina's trailer. Even funnier when the characters of the same series that bring Dark Pit mock the idea of Moveset Clones without a hint of irony. Specific mentions go to:
    Pit: I wonder where Chrom is.
    Palutena: Who knows? Probably taking a nap at home.
    Chrom: I'm no idle layabout.
    Pit: Woah! Where did you come from?!
    Chrom: Robin is a skilled strategist, and master of both the Levin Sword and magic. Certainly more useful than a simple swordsman like myself.
    Viridi: Plus, you and Ike are too similar. No point in having two characters that are pretty much carbon copies, am I right?
    Chrom: Excuse me?
    Palutena: What's more, you don't have an Ather recovery move like Ike does, do you? note 
    Chrom: Quiet, you!
    Pit: Got it! This fight is in the bag!
    Chrom: I wouldn't be so sure. For Robin's Final Smash, I plan on lending a hand. And then you'll taste the bitterness of defeat!
    Viridi: We know you're trying to play the hero and all, but you can only join in if Robin gets the Smash Ball, right?
    Chrom: You'll taste the bitterness of defeat! Right after Robin… gets the… Smash Ball.
    • Just the fact that Chrom is able to join the conversation at all. Pit asked a good question; seriously, where did he come from!?
  • A segment of conversation regarding Shulk.
    Palutena: That's Shulk. He's 18 years old and clocks in at 5 feet 6 inches.
    Pit: That's a pretty fancy sword he's got.
    Palutena: That's the Monado, the sword that defeated the Mechonis.
    Pit: (In a very bad British accent) Makes us look like a buncha jokers.
    • Pit's not done stealing Reyn's time.
    Palutena: But if you know his weakness, he's not too difficult to deal with.
    Pit: Let's not lose our heads, though!
  • Apparently Pit, Palutena and Viridi are huge Mega Man fans.
    Viridi: Hey, look! It's Mega Man!
    Pit: Is that really him?! It IS really him! WOW!!
    Viridi: I hope he busts out his Mega Buster!
    Pit: I wanna see his Charge Shot!
    Palutena: Flame Blast!
    Viridi: Leaf Shield!
    Pit: Rush Coil!
    Palutena: Metal Blade!
    Viridi: Spark Shot!
    Pit: Air Shooter!
    Palutena: Crash Bomber!
    Viridi: Slash Claw!
    Pit: Flame Sword!
    All three: HARD KNUCKLE!
  • Pit's first reaction after seeing Pac-Man…
    Pit: Wakka wakka wakka wakka wakka.
    • Immediately followed by Palutena going on about Pac-Man's biting tendencies, suggesting that Pit would taste great with some barbecue sauce.
  • Viridi mistakes Samus as "Metroid". Palutena follows up with how Link isn't called "Zelda", and Viridi mentions that Pit isn't called "Icarus."
    Pit: Ok, this joke has officially run its course.
  • The conversation on Diddy Kong gives us this gem:
    Pit (when discussing the peanut popgun): So? I love peanuts!
    Pit: I don't know. Still sounds pretty good to me.
  • The conversation on Fox gives us Pit doing hilariously bad impressions of General Pepper and Peppy, complete with a "DO A BARREL ROLL!" shout at the end. As you can imagine, it's glorious.
  • When considering Falco, Palutena thinks that since a certain F-Zero racer has the falcon motif down, the Star Fox pilot looks more like a pheasant. note 
    Pit: Mmmm, sounds delicious…
  • Viridi wants Lucario to join the Forces of Nature.
    Pit: We need to focus on the fight at hand.
    Viridi: You focus on the fight at hand. I gotta catch my new recruit.
    Pit: No! Stop!
  • Viridi also knows about what Bowser does on his free time.
    Pit: When I think of Bowser, I always picture him deep in his castle, steeling himself for a fight.
    Viridi: Or, you know, playing golf or racing a go-kart.
  • When Palutena Alights, she suggests Pit think of it "more as a sporting event and less as… a massacre."
  • Pit doesn't like Link.
    Pit: We were both born around the same time, and we both use a bow… he's totally ripping off my style!
    Viridi: Puh-leaze! Comparing Link to you is like comparing a star to a campfire!
    Pit: What?!
    Viridi: Just look at those chiseled features! (sigh) Those cheekbones could seriously cut glass…
    Pit: Uh, Earth to Viridi?
    Palutena: Oh, humans aren't all that bad. I could introduce you to him, if you'd like.
    Viridi: Hmph, if you insist…
  • Considering how blatantly it's stated elsewhere, Sheik's episode is Sakurai trolling his constituents.
    Pit: I wish I knew Sheik's real identity.
    Palutena: It is one of the great mysteries of our time.
    Viridi: Are you guys for real?! You can't be serious.
  • Palutena identifies Ganondorf's true form as "The King of Porkness." Viridi seems especially proud of her knowledge of "Ganon Canon" (even though she flubs it when she mentions that Ganondorf reincarnates just as much as Link and Zelda do, when he usually just gets revived from death or limbo).
  • Toon Link's guidance reminds Pit the other Link is better looking, prompting him to say:
    Pit: One Link is handsome, and the other is adorable. They're cherry-picking the best bits!
  • Pit is facing off against Greninja and its Overly-Long Tongue, so what does Viridi suggest he should do?
    Viridi: As a defensive measure, I suggest rubbing spicy peppers all over yourself.
  • Pit and Viridi contemplate Meta Knight.
    Pit: I wonder what Meta Knight looks like under that mask?
    Viridi: Apparently quite similar to Kirby.
    Pit: If he took off his mask, could he inhale things too?
    Viridi: Maybe. And maybe he has Kirby's Copy Ability as well.
    Pit: So if a maskless Meta Knight copied a masked Meta Knight…
    Viridi: Well, then he'd just be back where he started.
  • Some sage advice concerning Wario. The road to hell is paved with good intentions, right, Pretty Palutena?
    Palutena: Also, eating garlic seems to make Wario very gassy.
    Pit: Ugh! TMI!
    Palutena: I'm only telling you this for your own good. He's a ticking time bomb. Watch out for his sudden farts. And all farts in general. They're gross and dangerous.
    Pit: …This job is really the worst sometimes.
  • The discussion about Yoshi, and the fact that he can apparently lay eggs despite being male, contains a beautiful Fandom Nod via Getting Crap Past the Radar.note 
    Pit: I wonder what's in those eggs. Chocolate?
  • With Mario, Pit seems more concerned about getting his autograph than battling him.
    Palutena: Fight first, fanboy later.
    Pit: Oh! Do you think he'll sign my wings??
  • After Palutena and Viridi get Lucina's back story out of the way the latter mentions that she's heard Lucina has a great sense of humor.note 
    Viridi: You can't tell by looking at her, but I hear she has a great sense of humor.
  • In Palutena's Guidance for Pit, Pit has an important question:
    Pit: Have you noticed that I can kind of fly on my own a bit?
    Palutena: Actually, it's called jumping, Pit. Sorry to be the one to break it to you.
  • Viridi straight up gushing over Charizard's wings. Especially from a nature standpoint they're completely unnatural.
  • The unofficial Guidances done by the guys at Zelda Universe have their funny lines, too.
    • Heroes Prefer Swords... and Roy is no exception.
      Pit: Seriously?! Another swordsman? There are SO many!!
      Viridi: You're complaining about swordfighters, Pit? Doesn't that make YOU part of the problem, when you split that Sacred Bow into two blades?
      Pit: Well, um... hehe... Who is this guy, anyway?
    • As with Mega Man and PAC-MAN, Ryu is a video game classic.
      Pit: Could my eyes deceive me? Is that Ryu!?
      Viridi: No way! You're bluffing, right? I can't believe it's him!
      • And taking insults about his chances, Pit finds himself in a familiar situation...
        Pit: Oh, gee, did I forget to mark 'Pick on Pit' Day on my calendar?
    • A SOLDIER getting in is no small matter, and the Skyworlders didn't miss it.
      Pit: Wait a minute... Cloud!? How the heck did he make it in!?
    • When Palutena mentions Cloud is a 1st-class member of SOLDIER, Pit almost mentions that's not actually true.
      Pit: Wait, wasn't he a-
      Viridi: SPOILER ALERT! Seriously Pit, can't you keep your mouth shut?!
    • Corrin's dragon wings have got Pit wondering if he can pull off that look.
    • Palutena and Pit didn't forget about that curbstomp in Bayonetta's intro trailer.
      Palutena: I'm sure there's no need for a formal introduction here, right, Pit?
      (Pit's "horrified defensive blush" pose)
      • And then, when Palutena and Viridi are ready to watch the beatdown...
        Pits: Girls... they just don't understand.

Character Endings
  • The character endings are chock full of funny moments for each of the characters.
    • Zelda finally getting revenge on Peach for stealing Link away.
    • Ganondorf finally using his sword (on Link, no less).
    • Luigi fleeing from a giant Wii Fit Trainer.
    • Female Robin chasing male Robin with a Hammer.
    • Zero Suit Samus crawling away from a pair of oncoming Bob-Ombs.
    • Ike offering a Lip's Stick to Palutena.
  • Lucario's All-Star congratulations screen in the Wii U version is that of a female villager sharing chocolate with him.
  • Zero Suit Samus's Wii U All-Star congratulations screen looks like a nudge to Bayonetta. Now it's Hilarious in Hindsight with Bayonetta herself confirmed!
  • Palutena's Wii U All-Star congratulations screen has her wearing a Bunny Hood amongst some flowers, portrayed by a pair of Lip's Sticks, and Pit looking surprised.
  • Pit's Wii U All-Star congratulations screen, meanwhile, has him trying to elbow Magnus, who is positioned at the center of the picture, as Palutena looks on.
  • Bowser Jr.'s 3DS Classic congratulations screen depicts his Clown Car Blowing a Raspberry at Bowser.
  • Mewtwo's comical seriousness from its trailer continues!
    • Its ending movie features it fighting Pikachu, Jigglypuff, Greninja, and Charizard, all of whom are constantly ducking its disable.
    • Its Wii U Classic ending shows it being covered in tiny Pikachu and holding one in its hand with an adoring expression.
    • Its Wii U All-Star ending shows… the Wii Fit Trainers taking it to the vet-eran.
  • One official screenshot for Ryu brings an Ascended Meme to epic proportions. Explanation 
  • In Roy's ending movie, Falco taunts him. Roy promptly attacks Falco with the Flare Blade, leaving a nice and delicious roast chicken after the explosion.
  • With Roy in Smash 4, it will be possible to fight him in All-Star Mode. Bowser Jr will mostly likely be in the same battle, meaning it will be possible to fight Roy AND Roy in All Star Mode … in the same match.
  • Roy's All-Star congratulations picture in the Wii U version, in which Roy performs a magic trick on the Wii Fit Trainer, is humorous enough, but then you look at Donkey Kong's facial expression…
  • In Corrin's All-Star congratulations picture in the Wii U version, he, Zelda and several Toon Links are doing a reenactment of Snow White.


  • Whoever writes the game's Facebook posts is a genius. Every so often, a character card picture is posted showing a character, their Final Smash, game of origin, etc. Some of the statuses that are posted with these pictures are hysterical. Meme references abound for everything from "Green Mario" to the inside joke in the Smash community about complaints about too many sword fighters.
    • Ike's reads "For Fun? For Glory? No. For Friends."
      • Likewise, with Lucina, it's "For my father!"
    • King Dedede's is: "Behold! The best duck face on Facebook. Well, until a certain someone shows up…"
    • Fox's says: "Final Destination better be ready."
    • Anyone could summarize the Wii Fit Trainer's card picture's series, first appearance, and Final Smash as simply… Wii Fit.
    • Roy Koopa's says "Roy's our boy." Became Hilarious in Hindsight after the other Roy came back as DLC.
    • With about a week before the release of Captain America: Civil War, an image of Captain Falcon was posted with "Team Cap" written on the post.

    Super Smash Bros. Ultimate 
  • The Super Smash Bros. part of the E3 2018 Nintendo Direct opens with Sakurai giving a very basic description of Smash within the space of five seconds. Immediately Smash Cut to a black screen with the words "THE END" in white text, quickly followed by a "(Just kidding.)"
  • This game shows us that every single fighter in the Smash series will be playable... and Luigi and Yoshi are introduced last, with the former being eaten by the latter.
    • The fact that the trailer ends on this note as if Nintendo were thinking "Oh yeah, these guys are here too". Bonus points if you forgot too.
    • In addition, right when Snake is announced and the big "Everyone is HERE!" blurb shows up, Pichu comes along as if the trailer is trying to say "yes, that includes him." Bonus points if that was the first fighter that came to mind.
    • We also have some more individual moments from the trailer, such as Kirby waking up to eat a Crash Bomber.
    • Mewtwo shows up next to Meta Knight as if to say "you're not forgetting about me again, are you?"
    • An Inkling Boy jumps right behind an Inkling Girl and blindsides her with his paint.
    • Mr. Game & Watch starts counting Greninjas when he appears to perform a shadow clone technique.
    • During Bowser Jr's scene, Lemmy seems to accidentally send Ludwig falling in Fourside.
    • Rosalina and Luma wake King Dedede up in the middle of a nap and proceed to startle him. His reaction seems to scream "aw crud, ah overslept!"
    • Little Mac punching Wario's bike during their reveal shot, causing him to fall flat on his back.
  • Ridley's splash screen tagline? "Hits the Big Time". With Ridley twirling Mario's cap. Becomes outright Black Comedy if you realize that, since Mario has Odyssey traits in this version of the game, Ridley is technically twirling Cappy, a sentient article of clothing.
    • His first look in-game is a visual gag, with an illusion looking like he is big as a stage he is standing on, but that is actually a small platform.
    • During his trailer, he's shown beating up various heroes... except for Pikachu, who waves when a Metroid lands on Ridley's head, and Kirby, who ends up staring down a fully erect Ridley eye to eye (and Ridley's tall enough to rest his beak on the platform Kirby's on) while wearing the Samus cap. Also possibly a Call-Back as Pikachu was the person besides from Samus who fought Ridley in the Subspace Emissary.
    • He does his famous wall-grind on Sonic, then roars at him as if to say "WHO'S TOO SLOW NOW!?"
    • When Ridley defeats Link, the latter collapses onto the ground. Ridley crouches next to him in a similar pose and waits for him to die. He looks like a cat watching something playfully!
  • The "Everyone is Here!" image contains the following...
    • Pokemon Trainer sending his three Pokemon after Wario and King Dedede, who are visibly panicking.
    • Robin quietly reading his book in the corner, ignoring all of the chaos behind him.
    • Dr. Mario apparently doing his proper job by checking Mr. Game and Watch's pulse with his stethoscope, in spite of the latter being a two-dimensional figure that somehow exists in a three-dimensional world.
    • R.O.B. and Luigi flying sideways in the background.
    • Villager simply chasing a butterfly with his net.
  • During the rest of the E3 announcement:
    • Wolf suddenly attacking the Ice Climbers and giving his famous "Bring It" taunt in front of Young Link, who just slashes right at him. He then gets attacked by Pichu's headbutt.
    • Snake shooting at Villager with a Super Scope while he's using his Balloon Fighter recovery move.
    • Link throwing a bomb and remotely detonating it on Donkey Kong and Diddy Kong.
    • Bowser takes out Nana, leaving Popo at the mercy of him and Ganondorf.
    • When showing that Pikachu Libre is now an alternate costume, the thing Sakurai points out is "did you notice Pikachu Libre is a girl?"
    • Samus cancels her Charge Beam with a jump, only to suddenly reveal Bowser right under her and scoring a KO.
    • Wendy appears to hit on Snake, only for him to knock her away.
    • This bit when going over a souped-up Super Sonic: "Either you're too slow, or he's lightning fast!"
    • "Lon Lon Milk, anyone?"
    • Fiora showing up in her Mechon costume is this thanks to the spoilerific nature of the look.
    • Rodin shows up, beats up Captain Falcon, then hands Bayonetta a Drill and leaves.
    • The fact that the Wii Fit developers specifically requested the Trainer look less like a mannequin.
    • Luigi getting sneaked up on by a Metroid.
    • Waluigi is still an Assist Trophy. And he's also used to demonstrate that Assist Trophies can now be KO'd.
    • On Bomberman: "Maybe an unexpected guest will photobomb your battle." *cue explosions*
    • Bewear, true to its Fighting typing, is shown beating up Ryu with it's own version of the Shoryuken.
    • Jigglypuff and King Dedede resting in a Healing Field.
    • Robin throwing Donkey Kong into Tortimer Island's waters, who proceeds to flail about and forget he can swim.
  • Quite a few character trailers have this, such as:
    • Donkey Kong faking Peach out and kidnapping her.
    • Link throwing a bomb past an approaching Pikachu, who then proceeds to follow it until it explodes.
    • Link walking off with a Cucco while the "Cucco Revenge Squad" chases and attacks him.
    • Two Yoshis tossing a Mr. Saturn like it was Baby Mario.
    • Kirby turning into a treasure chest from Breath of the Wild, which Link attempts to open.
    • Pikachu throwing a Beetle at a blindsiding Mr. Game & Watch, then cheerily waving to the camera.
    • Luigi's Green Missile getting deflected by Dr. Mario, leading to him careening into a wall.
    • Luigi dodging Ryu's kick by just casually dropping.
    • Luigi kicking Mario's hand while he's grabbing onto a ledge is funny in a dark way.
    • Ness ducking with Jeff as he launches the Bottle Rockets.
    • Captain Falcon outrunning a race car with the Bunny Hood, then proceeding to get hit by it anyway.
    • Jigglypuff gets its shield broken by Marth, sending her flying off of Gaur Plain.
    • Peach throwing one of her Vegetables at Kirby, who proceeds to eat it.
    • Daisy kicking one of Duck Hunt's exploding cans, right into an unsuspecting Ness. The confident look on Daisy's face sells it.
    • Bowser attempting to eat a peach, only for Whispy Woods to blow him off balance.
    • Kirby eating Popo during an attack, leading Nana to have a Freak Out!.
    • Sheik doing a spinning kick and Pikachu trying to emulate it.
    • Zelda calling to Link, only for the Great Plateau Tower to crumble onto him. It even looks like Zelda was the one making the ceiling fall!
    • Dr. Mario beating Luigi in a Cyclone contest and dusting his sleeve off afterward.
    • Pichu being asleep when his character trailer starts, leading to an expression of "oh, is it my turn!? Hi, guys!"
    • Pichu attempting to pick up an exploding Electrode, only to fail and run away in panic.
    • Falco picking up various foods until he comes across a roast chicken and burns with rage.
    • Young Link beating the ever-loving crap out of Ganondorf is followed by him taking a swig of Lon Lon Milk. It just looks like a "Got Milk?" commercial!
    • Ganondorf picking up a Heart Container is funny for the same reasons it was back in Hyrule Warriors.
    • Mewtwo using Confusion on Pichu before disappearing, leading the yellow rodent to wonder where he went.
    • Mr. Game & Watch getting tuckered out just from climbing a ladder.
    • The same fighter ringing his bell with one of the Game & Watch alerts.

    • Ryu slipping on one of Diddy Kong's banana peels.
    • Lucas attempts to use the Rope Snake on a Burrowing Snagret. It doesn't work, and then the creature in question can't reach him. Lucas then proceeds to casually shrug while talking to the snake.

    • Peach falling into mud which the Villager apparently dug up. Considering the Vegetable on his shovel, he was apparently going for that.

    • Shulk discovers Snake under his box, this time. Not so much of a secret anymore, is it?

    • Mr. Game & Watch's Octopus move now involves him picking up his opponents and carrying them right off the stage.
    • Wario's Final Smash now has him transform into Wario-Man and trap his opponents in a Big Ball of Violence, complete with written sound effects, before capping it off with a loud "PFFFFFFFFFT!" blast.
    • Giga Bowser now turns as giant as his baby self used to and just punches people into the screen.
    • Ridley's Final Smash involves him throwing the opponent onto Samus' ship and blasting it to smithereens. Yes, even if the foe involved is Samus. That means she somehow had to remote-control it near the arena for Ridley to smack her onto.
  • One of the new Assist Trophy characters is the Nintendo Badge Arcade Bunny. Players who wasted a lot of money on the app (like Serebii webmaster Joe Merrick) reacted as could be expected.
  • Pit has a new sound effect for his Star KO where he yells "I NEVER LEARNED HOW TO REEEEAAAADDD!."
  • The audience literally started chanting "NOT TOO BIG!" when Ridley is introduced at the Nintendo NYC store viewing party.
  • One of the new items is literally a banana that functions like a gun. The projectile it shoots (the banana itself) does an absurd amount of damage as well.
