Battlefield (デュエルゾーン, Duel Zone), also known as the Fighting Polygon Stage, is a stage in Super Smash Bros., home to the Fighting Polygon Team in the 1P Game.

The name "Battlefield" is retroactively applied to this stage, as redesigns of this stage that have appeared in later games in the series share that name. However, this stage's official name in Japanese, デュエルゾーン, Duel Zone, doesn't match the name for Battlefield in the Japanese versions of Melee and Brawl, both of which use the name 戦場, Battlefield. Because of the similarities to the later Battlefield stages and the disagreement with the Japanese name, this stage does not have a clear official name in English.

Stage layout[edit]

Like its successors, it features a large main platform with three overhanging soft platforms. It is overall smaller than the Melee and Brawl versions, and also lacks Melee's infamous ledges on its main platform. It also has a higher ceiling than its Melee counterpart. The only way to use the stage for a multiplayer match is through hacking.

Tournament legality[edit]

In competitive play the stage is banned: besides the fact that it needs a hacking device to be accessed, there is also a glitch where characters are auto-KO'd if they Smash DI into the stage.

Trivia[edit]

  • This is the only Battlefield in which is not a playable stage in VS Mode.
