Jigglypuff (プリン, Purin), is a fictional creature in the Pokémon series.
 Creature description
Jigglypuff first appears as one of the 151 species of Pokémon in Pokémon Red and Green, and appears in all versions following it. Despite not being a lead character in the Pokémon franchise, Jigglypuff was selected to appear in the Super Smash Bros. series due to its similarities to Kirby, which allowed the staff to reuse the model and many animations as a base for Jigglypuff. It was also desirable because of its prominent appearance in the Pokémon anime at the time, similar to Pikachu (as well as Mewtwo and Meowth, who were apparently intented to appear in the original game).
As mentioned above, Jigglypuff is similar to Kirby in appearance, however Jigglypuff have larger eyes, thinner limbs, and large, triangular ears, as well as a curled tuft of hair on on its head. This somewhat feminine appearance has led to many smashers and others who have not played Pokémon to refer to Jigglypuff as a "she". Within the Pokémon world, there are both male and female Jigglypuff, and females are more common than males, but the Smash character is always referred to as "it".
The Pokédex provides additional biological info about the Jigglypuff species: After it mesmerizes its foe with its large, round eyes, it sings its lullaby until the foe sleeps, and does not stop to breathe until the foe is fully asleep; it can perform longer with its single breath if it inflates its body with air beforehand. Its vocal chords can freely adjust the wavelength of its voice, and it sings at precisely the right wavelength to make its foes most drowsy. The sound waves of its singing voice match the brain waves of someone in a deep sleep. Nothing can avoid falling asleep after hearing a Jigglypuff's song, but some are more naturally resistant to the effects than others and take much longer to sleep. This effectively endangers a singing Jigglypuff's life because it cannot breathe.
 In Super Smash Bros.
 As a playable character
Jigglypuff is one of the four secret characters in Super Smash Bros. and is considered to be the easiest one to unlock. Its Rest attack is considered to be one of the most powerful moves in the game. Aside from sharing similar physical characteristics with Kirby, it has a slightly better jump than Kirby. Jigglypuff is two-thirds of the way on the tier list, being ranked 8 out of 12.
- The Balloon PKMN with the big, round eyes. It sings a soothing melody, sending those that hear it to sleep. When mad, it puffs itself up. As a Balloon PKMN, its body is light, weak, and easy to knock away.
- Pokémon (GB)
 As a playable character
Jigglypuff returns in Super Smash Bros. Melee as one of the eleven secret characters. It is unlockable after clearing Classic or Adventure with any character, except Mario unless Dr. Mario is unlocked already. Jigglypuff is 3rd on the tier list, originally tied with Fox and Falco. Thanks to an update, and like a few other characters, it has a new neutral special move, Rollout, which replaces its previous standard special move, Pound, which has become its side special move.
 In Single-player
Jigglypuff has three trophies in its name, just like all the other playable characters; the original trophy, the Smash Red trophy, and the Smash Blue trophy. Its original trophy reads as follows:
- This Balloon Pokémon invites its opponents in close with its big, round eyes and then puts them to sleep with a soothing lullaby. It puffs itself up when angry, and while it may look adorable, it's not to be trifled with: it knows several powerful techniques. Jigglypuff evolves into Wigglytuff after exposure to a Moon Stone.
- Pokémon Red & Blue, 09/98
 As a playable character
Jigglypuff appears once again in Brawl. Jigglypuff appears the same as before, but is more difficult to unlock than in previous instalments of the series, considering it was the 33rd character introduced on the DOJO!! and the last veteran character to be introduced.
Jigglypuff's Final Smash is Puff Up. It inflates and gets larger and pushes any character off the stage, and Jigglypuff is invulnerable during this form. Jigglypuff ranks 35 out of 38 on the current tier list, a significant nerf from Melee.
 How to unlock
- Play 350 VS matches, then beat Jigglypuff in a match on Pokémon Stadium 2.
- Complete the Subspace Emissary, then beat 20 events in Event Mode. Afterwards, beat Jigglypuff in a match on Pokémon Stadium 2.
- Complete the Subspace Emissary, then return to The Swamp. On the last part of the level, where the player is shooting through barrels, stop on the platform below the new door. Go in and beat Jigglypuff. The player will then have completed the stage and unlocked Jigglypuff.
 Trophy Description
- A Balloon Pokémon. It invites opponents in close with its big, round eyes, then puts them to sleep with a sleepy song. The secret to the song's unfailing efficacy is Jigglypuff's ability to sing on the wavelength that will make its opponent the sleepiest. It also uses Attract to infatuate opponents who touch it. It uses a Moon Stone to evolve into Wigglytuff.
- Pokémon Red/Blue
- Pokémon Diamond/Pearl
- Though it is widely thought that Jigglypuff's appearance never changed throughout the series, it has. Jigglypuff's arms are positioned more outward in Melee and the position changed back to what it was in the original game in Brawl. Also, in the original SSB, the light in Jigglypuff's eyes was in the opposite direction than in Melee and Brawl.
- If held too long, Jigglypuff's shield will break and it will fly vertically upwards, instantly giving the player a self-destruct unless a wall is in the way. This occurs in all three Smash games, however, in some areas, it provides a favorable advantage (see shield jump).
- Jigglypuff and Luigi are the only characters to have their their availability status as unlockable in every Smash Bros. game so far.
- Jigglypuff's eyes are blue in the games, but in the Super Smash Bros. series, they are green, which is the color of its eyes when it is shiny.
