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 eight players to play on the same stage at one time. 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. Additionally, when using the Team Battle function in 8-Player Smash, CPUs will almost always utilize the life stealing technique, even more often than they do in the other modes.

Stages available in 8-Player Smash[edit]

Only certain stages and their Ω Forms can be played on. Sizes of stages may change to accommodate for the larger amount of players. Several of the stages' hazards or background elements are also removed. Certain stages allow for 5 or 6 players, but not 7 or 8. Omega stages will be scaled up depending on how many players are present. The stages' 8-Player Smash versions are also used in All-Star Mode and the horde battles in the Special Orders mode.
