Behind Enemy Lines (known as Homeward Struggle in PAL versions of the game) is a single-player event match in Super Smash Bros. for Wii U. In the event, the player, as Fox, must survive against Mega Man and Bowser Jr. for 1 minute. The stage is set on Orbital Gate Assault starting on the first missile. All participants start every stock at 200% damage. Clearing this event will award the Tricky trophy.


This event is unlocked by clearing Pokémon Battle. Completing the event awards the Tricky trophy on the challenge board, but does not unlock any additional paths. Once both the event is completed and Mr. Game & Watch is unlocked, the left path is unlocked.

Completing the event on normal or hard difficulty while KO'ing at least 8 opponents awards a Desperate Speedster Jacket equipment.


  • The PAL version's description states that Fox must make it back to the Great Fox. However, the Great Fox does not appear in this event, as the timer would expire before the Arwings dump the players back on the Great Fox.
  • The presence of Mega Man and Bowser Jr. represents them having metal bodies (ignoring Bowser Jr. himself) like the Arwings.
  • This event is similar to Brawl's Event 23: Molten Norfair, as they both require the player to survive at high damage.
