There's a poison floor to represent the game's Collision Damage, and the music for the fight is randomly picked from the electronic tunes in the soundtrack. The Spirit itself is Ace level; it can be enhanced at level 99 to the antagonist's second or final form, which boosts fist attacks.

  • Cho'Gath is a Novice Attack Primary Spirit represented by a giant Ridley on Kongo Falls Omega. In battle, food items spawn and Ridley gets buffs to his stats after eating, referencing both his passive trait and his Ultimate. Upon defeat, Cho'Gath grants the Attack + From Eating effect.

  • Flandre Scarlet is an Legend-level Primary Spirit represented by a red Pit fought on Final Destination. Similar to Remilia's Spirit Battle above, she is attracted to shooting items; and also have her own projectile attacks boosted in power. Her Spirit has 3 slots and Critical Hit+, as Flandre is a Person of Mass Destruction.
  • Marisa Kirisame is an Ace Attack Primary represented by a white-clad Peach. In battle, Peach is equipped with a Star Rod, referencing her being a witch, and often times, Daybreak parts spawn around the arena. When equipped, Marisa grants Magic Attack+.
  • Suika Ibuki is an Advanced Support Spirit represented by a purple Inkling. In battle, Inkling has permanently increased attacks to her punches, kicks, elbow strikes and knee strikes, referencing Suika's insane strength, and will occasionally turn giant. When defeated, Suika grants the Giant effect.
  • Aya Shameimaru is an Advanced Support Spirit represented by a Dark Pit in white robes. In battle, Dark Pit is equipped with a Tanuki Leaf, a Gust Bellows, and accompanied by Yuri Kozukata Assist Trophy. Deku Nuts also spawn throughout the match. When defeated, Aya grants the user a Deku Nut.
  • Reiuji Utsuho is an Ace Attack Primary Spirit represented by a giant green Dark Samus and fought on Frigate Orpheon. In battle, Dark Samus is accompanied by a red Mewtwo, which represents Rin Kaenbyou, is armed with a Steel Diver, and prefers to use Specials. The floor of the stage is on fire and occasionally, Bob-Ombs start dropping on the stage. Upon defeat, Utsuho grants the Steel Diver to the user, which is a reference to her Third Leg.
  • Yuyuko Saigyouji is an Advanced Attack Primary represented by a blue Kirby and fought on Green Greens in the base game, and Yggdrasil's Altar if the DLC is purchased. In battle, Kirby is accompanied by a green Lucina armed with a Killing Edge (Or Sephiroth in his green alt if the proper DLC is purchased), and Kirby is attracted to food items and gains a stat increase after eating. Upon defeat, Yuyuko grants the Stats ++ After Eating ability, a reference to her fan portrayal as a Big Eater.
  • Byakuren Hijiri is an Ace Attack Primary represented by a black-clad Palutena. In this timed battle, Palutena is accompanied by an invisible Wario who prefers his Side-B. Palutena also has increased magic attack and gains random buffs occasionally. When defeated, Byakuren grants the Magic Attack + ability.
  • Reisen Udongein Inaba is an Ace Support spirit represented by an Inkling in her school outfit, or a purple-haired Mii Gunner in Cuphead's body if the proper DLC is purchased. In battle, Inkling/Mii Gunner has increased shooting attack power and is accompanied by a tiny Daisy and both are equipped with a Bunny Hood. The battle takes place in Mario Galaxy, loosely representing the space aspect of Imperishable Night, and occasionally, the screen will flip and controls will reverse, representing Reisen's Lunatic Red Eyes ability. Upon defeat, Reisen will grant the Shooting Attack + ability, referencing her ability to use a Finger Gun in battle.
  • Fujiwara-no-Mokou is an Ace Support spirit represented by a red Zero Suit Samus. In battle, ZSS has increased power to attacks involving fire and kicking and heals over time. The stage is also on fire and chicken items spawn on occasion, representing the fact that Mokou owns a yakitori stand. The battle takes place on Garden of Hope Omega, loosely representing the Bamboo Forest of the Lost. Upon defeat, Mokou grants the Great Autoheal effect, in reference to Mokou's immortality.
  • Yukari Yakumo is a Legend Support Spirit represented by a purple-clad Zelda. In battle, Zelda prefers to use Up Special, referencing Yukari being a "gap youkai", and is accompanied by a blue-clad Fox and a red-clad Peach, representing Ran Yakumo and Chen respectively. Upon defeat, Yukari grants the Reflect Dodge ability, which allows the user to reflect projectiles by dodging alone.

  • Being based on the Mother franchise, the main character Frisk is represented by their inspiration's equivalent Ness. The fight is a stamina battle to represent the battle system, and Heart Containers appear throughout the stage to represent the heart-shaped SOUL that the player uses to dodge enemy attacks.
  • Flowey is a tiny yellow Ivysaur (since Piranha Plant is a DLC character, and most Green Thumb spirits are represented by Ivysaur) who favors special attacks. After a while, both fighters will take serious damage akin to Katrina's battle and leaving them extremely vulnerable, referencing Flowey's "kill or be killed" philosophy.
  • Napstablook is represented by a white Mr. Game and Watch, fought in a no-frills battle representing how Napstablook's fight isn't as interesting as the other fights later in the game (and boy, are they aware of that). However, the closest thing I could think of that resembles Napstablook's fight is the spirit battle taking place in [WarioWare, Inc. with "Stay dry" being the only minigame, as it features damaging rainstorms similar to Blooky's Swiss Army Tears.
  • Toriel is a "dark" Zelda (since this palette swap has a coloration similar to Toriel's) who uses Din's Fire to represent her pyrokinesis. Since Toriel's fight introduces the moral dilemma present throughout the game, her fight has a "survive until the timer runs out" rule where you must either choose to spare or kill her in order to win. And to top it all off, all fighters have decreased attack to show Toriel's reluctance in harming Frisk as well as the Player Punch the fight imposes.
  • Papyrus is a white-clothed Chrom, with a cape similar to Papyrus' own. During his spirit battle, your gravity will intensify to represent the Unexpected Gameplay Change of his battle introducing a platforming aspect. In a manner similar to Malon's battle, a tidal wave of a certain type of food will appear, in this case being sphagetti (his Trademark Favorite Food). Starman appears as a hostile assist trophy, since it was the original inspiration for Papyrus' design.
  • Papyrus' brother Sans is represented by a blue Robin, who was not only the puppet fighter representing the similar character Death, but has a relationship with Chrom in the lore. As Sans' battle is a spoiler in the lore (unless you know in one way or another), this spirit battle will be filled with spoilers as well. Sans will periodically turn invincible similar to Super Star and Shedinja to reference his ability to dodge attacks easily, and he starts with a Staff to represent the Gaster Blasters he uses. The stage will have a slumber floor to represent Sans' laziness, as well as his plan to stall the player into exhaustion, only for him to be exhausted instead. He is accessible as a primary spirit, but he can be enhanced into his "Bad Time" mode, with Easy Dodging as his ability.
    • Alternatively, Sans is represented by Blue Mario (due to his height compared to his brother), and it's a Stamina battle that replicates the Genocide route. The first opponent is Purple Rosalina with 80 HP (Toriel, reflecting her motherly nature), then Fire Luigi with 100 HP (Papyrus, acting as a tall brother with unorthodox jumping physics), Greninja with 30 HP (Undyne, due to their aquatic nature and ability to turn water into weaponry), Metal Greninja with 150 HP (Undyne the Undying), Metal Bayonetta with 20 HP (Mettaton-NEO, because both of them have nice legs), and lastly, Blue Mario with 10 HP, a Bunny Hood and periodic invincibility to reflect Sans' dodging ability.) The Battlefield is The Great Cave Offensive, to represent the vastness of the underground.
    • Now that his costume is confirmed, it only makes sense that if Sans gets a spirit, it'll be a Mii Gunner dressed as him. All the above special conditions can still apply, of course.
  • Monster Kid would be a small yellow Yoshi, fought on the Great Cave Offensive. He would avoid conflict, while a blue Terry (as Undyne), then a blue Bayonetta (as Armored Undyne) attempt to protect him. As with many other Undertale spirits, the objective is to survive until the timer runs out, or alternatively, KO everyone.
  • Undyne is represented by a blue Bayonetta, who is powerful enough on her own. Your fighter is easy to launch yet starts with a Back Shield to represent the way Undyne's boss fight introduces the green SOUL, which can't move and must rely on a shield to defend itself from attacks. She is fought in a stamina battle referencing her willingness to fight, even defying death. She is available as a primary spirit, but can be enhanced into her One-Winged Angel form, Undyne the Undying.
  • Mettaton EX is a metal Captain Falcon, represented in his white and pink coloration for good measure. Like Blaziken and Hitmonlee, this is another example of a puppet Captain Falcon with enhanced kicks and knee strikes, to reference Mettaton's famous legs. As he is a famous star in the underground, the Squid Sisters appear in the fight as his guest stars.
  • Mettaton's creator Alphys is represented by a yellow Yoshi. As she can't be fought in-game, her puppet fighter avoids conflict with Mettaton's puppet fighter doing the fighting for her, although she as the main fighter must be defeated to win.
  • Asgore is represented by a yellow-colored Bowser, who has a similar role as being a villain in the perspective of the good guys, yet is a good king and a father to his subjects and children alike. He starts with a Beam Sword, the closest equivalent to Asgore's trident, and he has super armor to represent his toughness.
  • Asriel Dreemurr: The object of this fight is to survive until the timer runs out (which is set to five minutes). It starts off as a yellow Piranha Plant that is dispatched easily. But after that, a giant Mewtwo spawns and it has increased attack and defense power, the ability to heal when it hits you and sudden Final Smashes. It's also easily distracted by items, which include Dragoon and Daybreaker parts. Should you knock Mewtwo out, another one spawns and this repeats about five times (once per minute). Once obtained, it is a Legend-class defense primary spirit with no ability and no slots but high stats (similar to Akuma).
  • The Fallen Child/Chara is represented by a green-clothed Isabelle, who has a similar perpetual smile. Contrary to popular belief, Chara didn't start as the villain, only when they become corrupted through their experience in the Genocide route. As such, Chara's spirit battle is similar to Aegislash's two-phased fight: the fighter starts docile and avoidant of conflict at first, but when you defeat them they will be replaced with a more hostile version willing to strike you down. It also has a "Survive until the timer runs out" rule, so you can either spare Chara to make them remain docile, or force them to fight you. Taking the latter option will give Chara a Killing Edge. This fight is a reminder of Undertale's morality system: you can be kind or cruel, so choose wisely.
  • Asriel's spirit battle in his child form features his and Chara's puppet fighters starting with Lip's Sticks to represent their plan to use Golden Flowers to incite the human-monster war (as well as Asriel becoming a flower himself, see Flowey above). The enemy fighters will avoid conflict, but they will use their Lip's Stick on you if they have to. They're basically re-enacting their plan. As for Asriel's puppet fighter, I went with Yoshi in his Crafted colors, which in turn is a reference to Deltarune's mention of "Super Smashing Fighters" in which Asriel's favorite character was "the green egg-laying lizard". Basically, Galeem trapped Asriel in the body of his favorite fighter. Hey, they referenced Sans in the quote "If you try to dunk someone with it, you're gonna have a bad time" in the tip about Toon Link's down aerial. The cross-references between Smash and Undertale are definitely possible.
  • The Human Souls, a Legendary spirit are represented by a small Marth who prefers sword moves (Patience and their Toy Knife), small Little Mac who prefers punching moves (Bravery and their Tough Glove), Bayonetta who prefers kicking moves (Integrity and their Ballet Shoes), female Robin who prefers special moves (Perseverance and their Torn Notebook), Peach who prefers moves involving her frying pan (Kindness and their Burnt Pan), and Joker who prefers Gun (Justice and their Empty Gun). They give you Great Autoheal when obtained.
  • W.D. Gaster is a black Mewtwo (resembling the Mystery Man speculated to be Gaster himself) whose special moves have increased power to show Gaster's mysterious world-altering abilities. However, Mewtwo is permanently invisible to represent how Gaster was shattered across time and space, and he has to experience a world in which he is nonexistent, only showing up here and there in certain timelines. Isaac appears as a hostile assist trophy with his power to create giant psychic hands, since Gaster is known as the "man that speaks in hands" and fanmade Gaster battles depict him as using disembodied Wingding hands in combat. He is fought in Frigate Orpheon, which resembles the CORE and Alphys' abandoned lab.
  • Omega Flowey is represented by a giant green Ridley. His boss fight is a Bullet Hell which is hard to replicate in a fighting game, so Omega Flowey starts with a Super Scope (which resembles a machine gun) and summons Mother Brain as a hostile assist trophy. His spirit strengthens shooting attacks.
  • Kris is represented by Lucas in Claus' colors, referencing how they are the Contrasting Sequel Protagonist to Frisk like how Lucas is very different from his predecessors Ninten and Ness. They start with a Belt Sword, referencing Kris' signature weapon in the Dark Realm.
  • Susie appears too, but due to sharing a name with another Susie, she is referred in-game as Susie (Deltarune). Her puppet fighter is a purple Simon, who favors using Axe to represent Susie's signature axe.
  • Ralsei is represented by a yellow-clothed Sheik, who has a red scarf on her mouth like Ralsei's own. The floor will be sleep-inducing to represent his ability to sing lullabies to soothe enemies, and he will avoid conflict to show his pacifistic nature. Ralsei heals over time, referencing his status as the healer of the party.
  • Lancer is a blue Wario who favors the Wario Bike and has increased movement speed, since he is a Badass Biker. Susie's puppet fighter will appear alongside him as a reinforcement, referencing Susie's betrayal and team-up with Lancer, which she later grows out of.
  • King of Spades is represented by a white King K. Rool, a fellow Adipose Rex and tyrannical king. He favors using Crownerang as well as grabs and throws to reference his throwing abilities and harpoon.
  • Jevil has increased movement speed and is easily distracted by items, being shooting weapons. All shooting items have increased power, referencing Jevil's fight being yet another challenging Bullet Hell. His puppet fighter is Sonic, which shouldn't be surprising as not only does the hedgehog's blue coloration and quills resemble Jevil's outfit, but the franchise is just as meta-aware as Jevil himself.

  • Captain Viridian is an Ace support spirit where you fight a cyan Mr. G&W on battlefield form of Balloon Fight and sometimes the screen will flip upside down to reference how he can flip his gravity. 5 more G&W's can spawn to represent his crew mates but you only need to defeat the main fighter. When defeated the spirit grants gravity change immunity.

  • Excalibur is a Novice Attack Primary. He is represented by a white-clad Snake fought on Gaur Plain. In battle, Snake is equipped with a Killing Edge, representing the Exalted Blade, and occasionally, his Special attack will increase. Upon defeat, Excalibur grants you the Killing Edge Equipped skill.
  • Hydroid is an Advanced Support Spirit. He is represented by a Greninja and is fought on Wuhu Island. In battle, Greninja wields a hammer, and is assisted by a Burrowing Snagret, representing the water tentacles the Hydroid can summon. Upon defeat, the Hydroid grants Water Attack +, in reference to the Hydroid's water-based abilities.
  • Councilor Vay Hek is an Ace Defense Primary. He is represented by a yellow Captain Falcon and is fought on Gaur Plain. In battle, Captain Falcon is covered in metal and is armed with a Super Scope. With each attack, Falcon lands, he will heal himself for a portion of that damage. Upon defeat, Vay Hek will grant you Giant and Metal, in reference to his Terra Frame boss battle.

When the Past was Around
  • Eda & Owl make up a Novice spirit that inhabit a Zelda and Falco respectively. Eda spawns with a Meloetta Poké Ball, referencing the music motifs of the game. Food makes them both slightly stronger, as a reference to the latter half of the story where Eda has to give medicine to Owl.

Who said there cannot be visual novel spirits?
  • For Higurashi:
  • For Umineko:

  • Kouji Tagawa is a Novice-class Primary Spirit. He is represented by a white Chrom. As a fellow Camera Fiend from a horror game, Yuri Kozukata appears as a hostile Assist Trophy. When equipped, he grants Trade-Off Attack (a nod to his higher than average STR stat and his memetic reputation for brain damage).
  • Kirie Minami is a Novice-class Support Spirit. She is represented by a female Robin with increased magical power. When equpped, she grants Magic Attack Up.
  • Mizuki Hamasaki is a Novice-class Support Spirit. She is represent by a pink Daisy, and the Squid Sisters appear as a hostile Assist Trophy, as she too is an Idol Singer. When equipped, she grants increased stamina.

  • Haru is a Novice-class Primary Spirit represented by a white Snake. He occassionally receives boosts to his speed, which are followed up by him having his own speed reduced (representing Nicotine Rush and Nicotine Withdrawal, respectively). When equipped, he allows 2 slots for Support Spirits.
  • Kana is a Advanced-class Support Spirit. Befitting their Ambiguous Gender Identity, they are represented by a cyan Villager. Many tiny black Mewtwos appear as back-up, representing the eels they are often associated with. When equipped, Kana grants increased shield strength, replicating how they functioned as an ally in World of Horror.
  • Cthac-Atorasu is a Legend-class Primary Spirit. It is represented by a giant black Greninja. Your speed is reduced and the floor is sticky. When equipped, it grants Sticky-Floor Immunity and 3 support slots.
  • Ithotu is a Legend-class Primary Spirit. It is represented by a black Ken which has a boost to his fire attacks. In addition, the floor is lava. When equipped, it grants Fire / Explosion Resist and 3 support slots.
  • Ath-Yolazsth is a Legend-class Support Spirit. It is represented by a giant white Kirby, and the Moon often appears as a hostile Assist Trophy. When equipped, it grants Metal and Giant.
  • Goizo is a Legend-class Support Spirit. It is represented by a giant indigo Inkling fought on Wii Fit Studio (which has mirrors). When equipped, it grants Invincibility after Eating.

  • Yeah, Jam and Fury are an Ace-class Support Spirit that are represented by a yellow Ness, a cyan Sonic and a white Incineroar on Super Mario Maker. Yeah starts with a POW Block, Jam starts with a Hammer and Fury's physical attacks are boosted. When equipped, they majorly increase stats after eating (referencing their love for mangoes).

  • Yooka-Laylee will be represented by Banjo & Kazooie in their Grunty color scheme equipped with a Screw Attack. Being a Spiritual Successor of the original duo, it makes perfect sense.

  • Adol Christin is Roy fought on Pirate Ship, cutely nodding to his tendency to get shipwrecked on an isle of adventure. His spirit would enhance to feature himself and his constant companion Dogi, and their granted buff would be Impact Run, as in the old Ys Bump System of battle.

  • Poniko is an Advanced-class Spirit represented by a green Zero Suit Samus who prefers to flee from battle. Once defeated, a black Kirby (representing Uboa) appears who prefers to use grabs and throws. Once obtained, she can be Enhanced into Uboa, who grants Strong Throw.


Video Game Tie-In Characters

  • Old Man Owl would be a novice spirit and be portrayed by a blue King Dedede atop the Pilotwings stage. All fighters would have uncontrollable movement, referencing the old man's subpar piloting skills.
  • Metal Robotnik would be portrayed by a Giant Metal Wario on the Midgar stage, in reference to Eggmanland/Robotropolis. In addition to several ranged weapons being available during the match, the floor will also be sticky in reference to Metal Robotnik's glue bombs (the Wario Waft could easily serve the same purpose). After the Wario is defeated, a regular-sized red overall Wario (referencing the doctor's classic look) and a red Zelda (referencing his hostage Sara) will appear and avoid you; defeat Robotnik to end the fight (though you can still KO Sara).

  • Ash Ketchum is represented by Ness. In a similar vein to Dr. Wily, Ash sends out his most experienced team of Pikachu, Charizard, Greninja and Incineroar (who was a Torracat at the time of writing). And as a bonus, the Pokémon will have sudden Final Smashes to represent the ways Ash is able to pull off lots of epic moments when he battles at his strongest.
    • Alternatively red hat Pikachu be the representation of Ash. After all, Ash doesn't do melee combat against other trainers when he loses. Also a reference to when he was transformed into "Ashachu"
    • As another alteration, Ash can come with most of the Pokémon characters except for Jigglypuff, Pichu and Mewtwo, as he has at least had a member of each line in his party at some point. In addition to the above-mentioned Pikachu, Charizard, Greninja and Incineroar, he's had a Squirtle with him, his Bulbasaur can be represented via Ivysaur (which Bulbasaur ironically refused to evolve into), and he recently got a Riolu that he evolved into a Lucario.
  • The Team Rocket trio are a Novice-class spirit represented by Bayonetta, Marth & Incineroar who are fought at Gaur Plains at 300% damage similar to the Buzz-Buzz Spirit fight. To obtain this Spirit, you have to send them blasting off again. In addition, the enemy starts with a Meowth-loaded Poké Ball. (Alternatively, they can use the Team Rocket Mii costumes.)

  • Tiff is a pink Rosalina, with the Lumas reflecting on her ability to call upon the Warp Star. In addition, Warp Stars frequently spawn. She's a Blue Novice-rank spirit.
  • Tuff is Lucas and fights with increased speed. He’s a Green Novice-rank spirit.
  • Tokkori is a yellow Kirby. He is fought in a no-frills battle, but similarly to the fight with Buzz-Buzz, him being exceedingly tiny will cause a lot of attacks to miss. He is a Green novice spirit.
  • Escargoon is a purple Yoshi who assists King Dedede (and is occasionally attacked by him). He is an Advanced-level Blue Primary Spirit that can be enhanced into Escar-droid.
  • Sirica is a female Corrin (4th alt.) who constantly uses items like fire flowers and Hocotate bombs against Meta Knight, referencing her Swiss Army Gun. You need to protect Meta Knight, and if he's KO'd, you fail the battle. Her spirit is an Advanced-tier green and it raises weapon-based damage.
  • Chef Shiitake is a white Meta Knight assisted by Chef Kawasaki. Alluding to their roles in Kirby Mass Attack, they will try to prevent the player from receiving Maxim Tomatoes, which spawn semi-frequently. He's a Red Advanced Spirit.
  • N.M.E. Sales Guy is a Pokemon Trainer (7th alt.), while the monsters are represented by his Pokemon. Nightmare spawns at the start of the battle. He's a Purple Ace spirit.

  • Chris Thorndyke would be a red Lucas as both start off as timid young boys in their respective series, and would be fought on Princess Peach's Castle as a nod to his family's mansion. He would be one of those Spirits that runs away, while Sonic himself eventually comes to protect him in reference to how he would always come and save the day at the last minute.
  • Decoe, Bocoe and Bokkun would be a yellow Luigi, a white Mario and a Dark Young Link, respectively. The Young Link in particular would prefer constantly using bombs, which was the robot's specialty in his source material.
  • Cosmo is an advanced spirit that pits you against a green Villager who also prefers to keep her distance, this time being protected by a Mii Gunner in a Tails costume. The fight will take place on the Lylat Cruise, in reference to the Blue Typhoon, while also serving as a nod to the episode where Shadow tried to assassinate her because she was an unwitting sleeper agent for the Metarex. In addition, she can be enhanced into her transformed state, which would be a Legend spirit that increases grab duration, much like how Cosmo's tree form held the Final Mova in place so Tails could finish them both off.
  • Dark Oak is a Legend spirit that has you fight a Metal Chrom, as both wield swords and hold positions of leadership. He is accompanied by two other metallic swordsmen: a Metal Lucina to represent Black Narcissus, and a Metal Marth to represent Pale Bayleaf. Beating the three of them will cause a giant Bowser, Charizard and Ridley to appear in reference to both their Mover Mode that they had as organic lifeforms, and the Final Mova that they fuse into for the final battle. Also in reference to the final battle, the fight takes place on Mario Galaxy, a nod to the planet that makes up the monstrosity. His effect outside of battle starts the player off in a metallic state.

    Comic Books 
  • Nicole is a purple Corrin that's fought on Fourside, which has a cybernetic feel to mimic Nicole's own artificiality, as well as slightly referencing the virtual Digital World. When equipped, she would be an advanced support spirit that can be enhanced into Overclocked Nicole, a legend spirit that grants increased electrical damage.

  • Super Sonic (Fleetway) is a legend spirit similar to the normal Super Sonic spirit, in that it's a golden Sonic that frequently uses its Final Smash. Unlike regular Super Sonic however, it will be fought on Northern Cave with the Lifestream simulating the exess Chaos Energy that led to this Super Sonic being created in the first place. It will also have increased attack power due to this version of Super Sonic being far more dangerous. In the player's hands, he's a primary attack spirit that has a chance of giving the user a Final Smash right out of the gate.

  • Tangle the Lemur is an orange Zero Suit Samus that loves to use her energy whip, referencing her Prehensile Tail somewhat. Alternatively, she could be portrayed by Pikachu Libre and mainly use attacks that use her tail. The fight takes place on Town and City, the closest the game can get to her hometown of Spiral Hill where she meets Sonic. When equipped, she's a primary grab spirit that increases grab duration.
  • Whisper the Wolf is a green Lucina (as both are known to wear a mask) that starts out with a Beam Sword to mimic the Variable Wispon. Items would appear frequently to simulate the modes that it has: Staffs for the Laser Mode, Rolling Crates for the Cube Mode, Super Leafs for the Hover Mode, Rocket Belts for the Rocket Mode, and Uniras for the Spikes Mode. She's fought on Castle Siege, due to her reputation as the Guardian Angel during the war against Dr. Eggman. As a spirit, she's a support spirit that takes up one slot and gives the user extra power for all item attacks.
  • Jewel the Beetle is a novice support spirit fought on Golden Plains, a peaceful location with a lot of shiny objects in reference to the jewels in her museum. She's portrayed by a ribbon hat Jigglypuff with reduced gravity similar to Tails or Cream, constantly jumping around in the process. When equipped, she grants an extra jump.
  • Dr. Starline is an advanced support spirit represented by a purple Joker on Dr. Wily's Castle (no hazards). The opponent will frequently turn invisible, referencing the Warp Topaz's ability to create wormholes for him to warp through. Launch Stars also spawn to replicate this effect. The fight also constantly flips the screen upside-down to simulate his hypnotic inventions, which equipping him gives an immunity to.
  • Rough and Tumble would be a novice support spirit portrayed by a black Wolf and an orange Incineroar fought in Garreg Mach Monastery's marketplace, which stands in for the town that they enslaved during their first appearance. Toxic fog will cover the battlefield, referencing their stink clouds. When equipped, they would grant a slight attack buff.
  • Mimic is an advanced primary spirit represented by a dark Mewtwo that constantly turns invisble, and is fought on Pirate Ship (Battlefield) to stand in for the Diamond Cutters' former base. On occasion, a random Assist Trophy will appear to assist Mimic, incorporating his ability to shapeshift into other people. As a spirit, he briefly turns the player invisible.
  • The Metal Virus is an ace support spirit that puts the player under a 3-minute time limit, as if fighting off the virus themselves, and the stage is Onett (no hazards). It's a multi-man fight against several metal opponents, each one referencing a character on the heroes' side that got completely turned into a Zombot. The metal opponents are Pichu (Charmy), Squirtle (Cheese/Chocola), Sonic (Shadow), Rosalina (Vanilla), King K. Rool (Vector), Jigglypuff (Jewel), Pikachu Libre (Tangle), Incineroar (Big), and Mii Brawler (Knuckles). Once equipped, the spirit predictably makes the user metal.

    Western Animation 
  • King Koopa would be an ace spirit fought on Yoshi's Island (Melee), and is preceded by the Koopalings in the order they're dealt with in the SMB3 episode "7 Continents for 7 Koopas". Like the Phantom Thieves' boss fight, taking too long to defeat one will cause the next Koopaling to assist the previous one. Roy (Bully) would be fought first, followed by Ludwig (Kooky), then Larry (Cheatsy), then Morton (Big Mouth), then Wendy (Kootie Pie), then Lemmy and Iggy together (Hip and Hop), referencing them being twins in this incarnation. A green Bowser is fought at the end, and comes equipped with a Super Leaf. King Koopa can be enhanced into Super Koopa, which makes all power-up items last longer.

  • Captain N is a Legend-class Primary Spirit fought on the Battlefield version of 75m. The actual battle is a no-frills battle against a Mii Gunner (representing Kevin Keene himself), a green Mega Man, a blue Simon, a red Pit, a purple Zelda (as Princess Lana) and a yellow Duck Hunt (as Duke). When equipped, he increases the power of shooting attacks.
  • Captain N!Alucard is represented by a black Sonic who spams his dash attack and has increased movement speed. The real Alucard also appears as a hostile Assist Trophy. Defeating him grants you screen-flip immunity, representing Captain N!Alucard being a turn-coat.

  • Dr. Robotnik (AoSTH) is an ace defend spirit that is portrayed by a brown King K. Rool atop Spiral Mountain, with the entrance to Gruntilda's Lair standing in for his own base.

When defeated and equipped, he can be enhanced into Supreme High Robotnik, a legend spirit that makes the user giant.
  • Scratch, Grounder and Coconuts are a Novice spirit that would take a few cues from their respective Sonic the Hedgehog 2 counterparts and be respectively represented by a green Falco with a Ray Gun (Scratch is based on the Clucker enemy), a green R.O.B. with a Drill, and a white Diddy Kong with a Deku Nut. They would be fought on Green Hill Zone, as it's the closest to the artstyle of their show. Outside of battle, they would be a Support spirit that simply gives the player a Bob-omb.

Sonic the Hedgehog (SatAM)note 
  • Sally Acorn is a brown Daisy with a Beam Saber. She would be an ace primary Spirit with enhanced laser and blade damage, as Sally is proficient with both, with a default Sonic assisting her throughout. The stage fought on is the Garden of Hope, which stands in for the secluded village of Knothole. The fight only ends once both opponents are KO'd. When equipped, she'd be a neutral spirit that grants extra power to laser attacks.
  • Bunnie Rabbot is a metal Isabelle with a Bunny Hood. She'd be an advanced spirit with increased attack power that's fought on Shadow Moses Island, referencing the general stealth missions in Robotropolis. She would be an attack spirit that grants higher physical attack power.
  • Antoine would either be a dark blue Lucario or a brown Roy, depending on whether his SatAM incarnation or the version from the comics is being referenced, with a Killing Edge and a tendency to run away. He'd be a novice spirit that's fought on Distant Planet, another stand-in for Knothole. Equipping him as a support spirit gives the user extra damage from sword attacks.
  • Rotor would either be a giant purple Squirtle or pink Donkey Kong, depending on the continuity being referenced. He would be an advanced spirit that's fought in the Great Cave Offensive, which references Knothole's underground depiction in the comics pre-Genesis Wave. As a support spirit, Rotor would grant extra power from all items, referencing his role as The Smart Guy.
  • Dulcy would be a green Charizard that's fought on Spiral Mountain, who constantly spams her Flare Blitz in reference to the original Dulcy's frequent crash-landings. When equipped, she's a novice support spirit that increases fire and ice attacks.
  • Dr. Robotnik (SatAM) would be a Wario with the red biker outfit that's fought on Midgar with no hazards. He's an ace spirit that's flanked by a tiny gray Meta-Ridley standing in for Cluck and three navy blue R.O.B.s with Ray Guns acting as SWATbots. Wario would be harder to knock off than normal, and the stage will frequently drop shooting weapons. When equipped, he makes the opponent metal in reference his usual modus operandi. Despite being the Big Bad of the show and early comics, he'd actually be a support spirit, referencing What Could Have Been with him undergoing Villain Decay and assisting Naugus in the planned season 3.
  • Snively would be a novice spirit represented by a white Luigi on Frigate Orpheon, also flanked by navy-blue R.O.B.s. He starts out with a Steel Diver, but is otherwise one of the easier foes to K.O. He's a support spirit that leaves the player with a speed boost in exchange for a 30% damage tradeoff, referring to him turning against Robotnik in both continuities.
  • Naugus is a legend neutral spirit represented by a purple Ganondorf with increased special attack power that is fought on Final Destination, referencing the Void where Robotnik had him trapped. Speaking of Robotnik, the red Wario representing his spirit and the white Luigi representing Snively would assist him, referencing Naugus's planned role of usurping the two as the Big Bad come season 3. When equipped, Naugus would have no support slots but a ton of power, and would grant players the same special boost that he has.

  • The Sonic Underground would be an advanced spirit where you fight three Sonics, two of which wielding Staffs and the other wielding a Boomerang. The Staffs are in reference to Sonic's bass and Sonia's keyboard shooting lasers while the Boomerang is a nod to how Manic throws his drumsticks in a similar fashion. Periodic earthquakes will also ravage the stage as Manic's drum set has been known to cause them. The stage where the fight takes place would be New Pork City, referencing the brighter dystopian city that Robotropolis had become in that show. As a development nod, the music playing will be "Open Your Heart" as Sonic Adventure was released around the time the show was airing.

  • Sticks the Badger would be a red Daisy (similarly tomboyish in nature) that starts with a Boomerang, much like her method of attack in both the cartoon and the games. In addition, her stage would be the Distant Planet in reference to her Wild Child aesthetic. Her effect outside of battle, of course, gives the player a Boomerang.
  • Team Sonic (Boom) would be a summonable ace spirit that requires Tails, Amy, Knuckles and the aforementioned Sticks and can be fought on the Spirit Board any time after first performing the summon. The fight plays similarly to Geno's with three starting the fight and the other two jumping in when one is KO'd. Sticks would once again be Daisy with a Boomerang, Amy is a purple Inkling with a Hammer (much like her own spirit battle), and Tails would be portrayed by either a yellow Fox or his gunner costume. Knuckles however, due to being a Top-Heavy Guy in this series, would not be a Mii Brawler in his likeness, instead being portrayed by a red Donkey Kong. Sonic, of course, would be Sonic, except in his light blue alt in reference to his blue arms.

Other Non-Video Game Characters:

    Anime/Manga characters

His spirit gives Trade-Off Stats to represent the aforementioned Power at a Price.
  • All Might is a yellow Donkey Kong who always has increased attack and speed, since he's been using One For All more than Deku has. He likes to charge his neutral special, representing his "Smash" moves. And what better way to pull of his ultimate Smash... in Smash... than have a sudden Final Smash? Okay, I'm done. Anyway, he is a primary spirit who gives increased attack.
  • Katsuki Bakugo is represented by a green-clothed Snake, who prefers to perform smash attacks to represent his ability to generate explosions at close range without any harm towards himself.

  • All for One is represented by a giant Snake in his black costume. The choice is an Actor Allusion: Akio Ohtsuka is well known for voicing both of them. He will frequently use his down throw, which puts you in a downed state like how All For One leaves his victims helpless as he steals their Quirks. As the fight progresses, his attack power increases after a while to signify his newfound strength from stealing powerful Quirks. He is a Neutral primary spirit who gives higher attack.

  • Kinnikuman / King Muscle is represented by a Blue Incineroar.

  • Haruka Haruno, Minami Kaido, Kirara Amanogawa, and Towa Akagi from Go! Princess Pretty Cure could appear as a whole team as, collectvely, a Legend-class spirit. Their puppet fighters would be Peach, Daisy, Rosalina, and a red-alt Zelda, respectively, since they bear some resemblence. They would gain sudden Final Smashes since those are their finishers, and their physical, aerial, and magical attacks all gain increased power since they're Magical Girls who specialize in hand-to-hand combat. You gain an ally in the form of a giant, black-alt Bowser, who serves as a stand-in for a Zetsuborg, but even it won't last long against them. They also tend to chain together their Final Smashes to help simulate their group finishers.
  • Kanata would appear as an Ace-Class spirit possessing a white Marth. He favors shielding and his shield has increased strength due to him being a Barrier Warrior. He is also a shield type spirit in the battle, but a support when equipped since he supports the Precure. A pink-alt Daisy stands in for Cure Flora, and she aggresively attacks you, but you only have to defeat Marth to win the battle. Math also likes to get in between you and Daisy with the intent to protect her despite him being the one you need to beat, which represents his desire to protect the Precure. When equipped, he'll increase your shield durability.
  • Princess Twilight would be an Advanced-Class spirit possessing a black-alt Zelda since, at this point, she is the Black Princess of DysDark; she has white hair and wears black, just like Zelda's dark alt. She favors her melee attacks and seldom uses her special moves since she didn't use such attacks against the Precure. At level 99, she would turn into Towa Akagi/Cure Scarlet, her true form after being purified, and she would strengthen fire attacks due to her being fire-themed.
  • Close would be a Novice-Class spirit possessing a black-alt Falco due to his true form being avian. He would favor air attacks, and h would be accompanied by a giant-sized green-alt Ridley as a stand-in for his Zetsuborg. At level 99, he would enhance into his stronger form seen later in the series, and it would have the unique ability to start you with an Assist Trophy since he and his fellow generals summon Zetsuborgs in a similar manner.
  • Dyspear would be a giant-sized Palutena in her black-alt to match with her dark clothing. As the main antagonist of the series, she would be a Legend-Class. To get to her, you would need to fight a guantlet of normal-sized and giant fighters representing the generals and their Zetsuborgs (Falco and giant green-alt Ridley for Close, red-alt Pikachu and giant black-alt Bowser for Lock, yellow Incineroar and giant purple-alt Donkey Kong for Shut, green+yellow alt Ice Climbers and giant white-alt King K. Rool for Stop and Freeze). Her magic attacks have increased power due to her being a witch, and the stage is covered in poisonous fog to represent the crushing despair she seeks to drown the world in. She is a support spirit since she mostly stays out of the fight and grants her subordinates power; she grants the unique ability to enhance both the power, defense, of Assist Trophies, and even lengthens the time they stay. For certain ones, at least.

Daisy's neutral attacks will have increased power (referencing Honoka's Catchphrase "Faito da yo!"), Corrin's jump power will be buffed (a nod to Kotori's name being "little bird" in Japanese), Byleth will mostly use Failnaught to attack (Umi's archery skills), Lucina will unleash random critical hits (Maki's condition being the same as Severa's), Sheik has increased move speed (Rin's the athletic one in μ's), Isabelle's stats are buffed upon eating (Hanayo's a Big Eater), Peach will taunt a lot (Referencing Nico's "Nico Nico Nii!") Inkling will mostly use grabs (Nozomi's "washi washi" gag), and Z.S. Samus can heal over time. They will be a Legend support Spirit, 3 slots, with Team Power Up++, as they are True Companions.

  • Popuko and Pipimi's battle starts with the default Inkling Girl and Boy, whose hair colors match the girls. They are fought in PictoChat 2, the stage with the most random stage events in the game, to represent the show's creativity and unpredictability. Since the girls are known for being portrayed by many famous seiyuu throughout the series, an army of many different fighters will show up during the battle. The playable fighters that appear are the ones voiced by seiyuu who participated in Pop Team Epic as seen on the "Characters" page: Female Corrin, Lucina, Chrom, Pichu, Little Mac and Lucario have appeared in the first season, Bayonetta, Cloud, Roy and Marth appeared in the TV specials and Snake appeared in Takeshobo Quest. All of these fighters will try to Zerg Rush you, but regardless of which fighter they are, they will always taunt, referencing Pop Team Epic's dark humor.
  • Retsuko is represented by Isabelle. After being hit a couple times, she becomes faster and more powerful, and at one point ingesting superspicy curry as the music transitions to something resembling death metal; all a reference to the character's Rage Breaking Point.

Both of them love to taunt to represent their playful nature.
  • Squidward is represented by a cyan Inkling Boy set in Dracula's Castle (which looks the closest to Squidward's moai house) and he starts with a Gust Bellows to resemble his clarinet and how he is known for being a Dreadful Musician. The battle will be timed and Squidward will mainly avoid conflict to show how he usually wants to be left alone. He will stay in his moai house and block the player's progression, but you must use SpongeBob and Patrick's spirits to lure him out (by annoying him) and make him fightable. After you gain Squidward's spirit, he will let you continue.

  • Virgin and Chad consist of a black Shulk and a purple Ganondorf respectively. Both of them opt to walk to resemble their respective strides of the original meme, but otherwise actively fight back.
  • Grotesque Steve is an ace primary spirit and is fought as a default Steve (of course) that is fought in the Taiga biome of Minecraft World (for obvious, squicky reasons). The Steve is slightly larger than normal in reference to how some depections can tower over the other characters in renders, but can be taken out rather easily in this stage. However, Steve will then be replaced by a giant Mii Brawler with the model's face, which is where the real fight begins. This is due to Grotesque Steve temporarily becoming a Discredited Meme when Banjo was revealed, only to resurge with the actual Steve's inclusion. The Brawler also comes with an Akira Yuki outfit if you downloaded it, making Grotesque Steve look even more uncannily realistic. It constantly uses Suplex to fight, referring to its rather grabby tendencies, and will occasionally taunt when it lands a combo in reference to its arrogant nature and belief that it is the real Steve. Equipping this spirit has the added effect of further increasing your character's grab duration.
  • SMG4's Mario Bloopers consists of Mario, Luigi, Purple Mario (Closest alt to SMG4), Default Inkling Girl (Meggy), Lucina (Tari) and Bowser fight you on Paper Mario. Mario, Luigi and Bowser acts all wonky to represent the chaotic nature of SMG4.

    Literature Characters 
  • Greg Heffley is a White Ness on Onett.

    Misc. characters 
Advertising characters
  • Pepsiman is represented by a Metal Captain Falcon in Moray Towers. The main theme playing is obviously the Pepsiman theme. The puppet fighter is always running from the player and the stage is timed.

Comic characters
  • Snoopy is represented by a white Duck Hunt dog with the yellow-and-green duck representing Woodstock. They are fought on Pilotwings, a reference to Snoopy's pilot fantasies.
  • Garfield is represented by an orange Incineroar in Living Room. Instead of fighting him, however, a yellow Duck Hunt (Odie) and a blue Mario (Jon) pick up most of the slack. Garfield generally keeps to himself either by sleeping or eating any food that appears, only attacking if the player or his allies get in his way.
LEGO non-game characters
The LEGO Movie
  • Emmet is portrayed by Mario in his construction worker gear... But, like the Detective Pikachu battle, you have to pick him out of a crowd of other construction worker Marios, as he's pretty much a generic nobody outside of being the Special.
  • Vitruvius is a Palutena who fights alongside the Nightmare assist trophy, to give you a sense for his blindness. His battle takes place in Gerudo Valley to reference the Old West, and he can be enhanced into Ghost Vitruvius to make you Lightweight.

He also has a slower fall speed due to the mask's effects, and grants Floaty Jumps as his support spirit skill.
  • The six spirit battles above are represented by the Toa in their original "Toa Mata" forms - combining their cores allows you to summon them as the Toa Nuva, a Legend Spirit. Their spirit battle has you face all six of the above spirits, with vanishing buffs linked to defense (Tahu), autoheal (Gali), run speed (Pohatu), attack (Onua), dodging (Kopaka), and jump height (Lewa); these buffs represent their Kanohi Nuva's ability to impart their mask power on those around them, instead of just themselves.
  • Makuta is a giant black King K. Rool, with poison covering the ground to represent antidermis. He's fought on Spear Pillar to represent Kini Nui and his lair beneath, and while you only have to KO him to win, you have to fight through a crew of multicolored Ridleys representing the Rahkshi.
  • Takua is a red Villager who is distracted by items, as according to supplementary material he ran a business in Metru Nui that sold items he collected while travelling. He can be enhanced at level 99 into Takanuva, whose light powers increase the user's magic attacks.
  • The Chronicler's Company has you go up against a red Sheik that uses her up special to avoid you (Kapura), a blue Isabelle who focuses on using her water bucket down smash (Macku), a brown Mega Man who uses the Metal Blade (Hafu), a black Mega Man who wields a Beam Sword (Taipu), a teal Link who focuses on jumping (Tamaru), and a white Meta Knight that shies away from battle (Kopeke). They are fought at Spear Pillar, again referencing Kini Nui.

Web Animation
Happy Tree Friends
  • Happy Tree Friends: In Super Happy Tree, the player first faces off against Cuddles, represented by Isabelle in a Bunny Hood. He is soon joined by Giggles (bow-wearing Jigglypuff), Toothy (purple Villager) and Lumpy (blue Bowser), who attacks the player as well as his own colleagues in a nod to his lethal stupidity. More opponents appear, including Petunia (Blue Daisy), Handy (Builder Mario), Sniffles (blue Dr. Mario), Nutty (yellow Villager with enhanced speed) and Flaky (red Kirby equipped with an Unira as a stand in for her quills). All this chaos will cause them to accidentally attack and potentially kill each other. The final opponent is by far the most formidable: Flippy (represented by a green Snake with enhanced strength), who kills any remaining fighters while attempting to defeat the player.


  • Team RWBY appears as red-colored Robin with increased speed and Death's Scythe, white-colored Zelda with an extra midair jump and Beam Sword, black-colored Sheik with improved dodging and a Killing Edge, and yellow-colored Bayonetta with strengthened melee attacks and a Rage Blaster.

Sock Series

  • Sock's spirit is an orange kirby with fire resistance, referencing Sock's fire powers. He also has health regeneration in reference to Sock's Healing Factor. He's equipped with a tail so he can can float in the air like in his source material and he prefers to use his dash attack since Kirby's dash is his only attack with fire. The fight takes place on Fourside with the ground burning, referencing the city Sock engulfs in fire. When equipped, this spirit grants a unique fire immunity ability. If it's a primary spirit, there are no spots for support spirits, but if it's a support spirit, it takes all three spots.
