!!Inkling

-> '''Home Series:''' ''VideoGame/{{Splatoon}}''
--> '''Debut:''' ''Splatoon'' [Wii U], 2015

-> '''Playable in:''' ''Ultimate''

Hailing from the realm of ''Splatoon'', Inklings are a race of humanoid squid creatures that can shapeshift between human and squid forms, utilizing their ink for various purposes within the sport of Turf Wars, striving to be the "freshest" amongst their peers. They were the first newcomers to be confirmed for the fifth ''Smash Bros.'' game.

* AscendedExtra: Went from a DLC Mii costume and a trophy in ''Wii U/3DS'' to a fully-playable fighter.
* BadassAdorable: Cute kids that can turn into cute squids, and vice-versa, but all of them can get very competitive as their Turf Wars can assess to, and some of them are also capable of taking out entire armies of Octarians in their home series. Now that they're in ''Smash'', they get to compete for this trope alongside the likes of VideoGame/{{Kirby}}, [[Franchise/{{Pokemon}} Pikachu]], and the [[VideoGame/{{EarthBound}} MOTHER]] [[VideoGame/MOTHER3 duo]].
* BioluminescenceIsCool: A previously unseen feature, the Inkling Girl has purple glowing spots on the underside of her tentacles which render her visible when the scene goes dark.
* BottomlessMagazines: {{Averted}}: A gameplay element requires them to stock up on ink frequently.
* EverythingsSquishierWithCephalopods: Especially ones that are humanoid! Inklings are a hybrid of squid and kid, and they're adorable as all get out.
* TheGunslinger: The Inklings are armed with the Splattershot watergun, which functions like an ink-firing machine gun.
* JawDrop: In their reveal trailer, the Girl opens her mouth in awe upon seeing the signature emblem of ''Smash Bros.'' blazing in front of her.
* MythologyGag: The start of their reveal trailer is an updated version of the initial reveal trailer for the first ''Splatoon'' game, showing the Boy and Girl fighting each other and demonstrating their abilities in a blank white space until they're interrupted by the ''Smash Bros.'' crew.
* OrangeBlueContrast: By default, the Girl is colored orange and the Boy is colored blue, and they are often shown to be at odds with each other.
* PurelyAestheticGender: Like in their series of origin, there's the option to pick between both male and female Inklings, but this doesn't change gameplay at all.
* {{Shapeshifter}}: Per the source material, Inklings are seen shifting between their humanoid "kid" forms and their cartoony "squid" forms.

!!Ridley

'''RIDLEY HITS THE BIG TIME!'''

-> '''Home Series:''' ''Franchise/{{Metroid}}''
--> '''Debut:''' ''Videogame/{{Metroid}}''

-> '''Playable in:''' ''Ultimate''

The ArchEnemy of Samus, leader of the SpacePirates, and a major antagonist of the ''Metroid'' series.

* AdaptationalPersonalityChange: He's still as brutal as ever, but now has a sense of [[ComedicSociopathy "humour"]] by twirling Mario's dropped hat.
* AscendedMeme: His splash tagline reads: "Hits the Big Time!", a reference to the "Ridley is too big" memes circulating around his size, often being a joke on why he wasn't included in previous titles.
* CombatPragmatist: He's described as one of the most brutal fighters, such as scraping opponents across the floor and perfectly content with ''impaling'' others just to win.
* FamilyUnfriendlyDeath: Given that he impaled Mega Man and Mario in his debut trailer...
* KickTheDog: He taunts Samus over the apparent defeat of Mario by twirling his dropped hat.
* PromotedToPlayable: He was previously a boss in ''Brawl'' and an assist character in ''Wii U'', and now he's finally playable in ''Ultimate''.
* {{Sadist}}: From what is seen in his reveal trailer, he seems to enjoy hurting others, much like his original counterpart.
* YourSizeMayVary: He's notably smaller in ''Ultimate'' than in his previous appearances.
