8-Player Smash (8人乱闘, 8-Person Fray) is a gameplay mode in Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. This mode allows up to eight players to play together at once, as opposed to the standard four. In addition to red, blue, yellow, and green indicators for players 1-4, players 5-8 receive new indicators colored orange, cyan, purple, and slate respectively. In Team Battles, an additional team color, the yellow team, can be selected.
If the 8-Player Smash mode is played with less than five players, it functions largely the same as the regular Smash mode, with no stage restrictions.
In Ultimate, 8-Player Smash is no longer a separate mode with its own menu option. Instead, the regular Smash mode allows up to 8 players to join.
Stages available in 8-Player Smash
In Super Smash Bros. for Wii U, only certain stages and their Ω forms can be selected; if there are more players present than a stage (or Ω form) allows, the stage's icon on the stage selection screen will be darkened and the stage will not be selectable. Some stages only allow for up to 6 players. Additionally, several stages' hazards or other background elements will be disabled in 8-Player Smash.
In 8-Player Smash in for Wii U, Ω form stages will be scaled up to approximately 1.6 times their size. Note that battles with more than 4 players in All-Star Mode and horde battles in the Special Orders mode will count as 8-Player Smash and thus use the 8-Player Smash versions of stages.
