One of Capcom's flagship characters, Mega Man from the Mega Man series, appears as a playable character in Super Smash Bros. 4, along with the main characters from the successor series making cameos in his Final Smash, Mega Legends. Elec Man, a boss from the first Mega Man game, was added as an Assist Trophy. Ryu of the Street Fighter series was made available as DLC in June 2015, making Capcom the first third party company to have multiple playable representatives (later followed by Sega in the same installment with Bayonetta being made available in February 2016 in addition to Sonic the Hedgehog, who is included in the base game). Costumes based on the Hunter and Rathalos armor from the Monster Hunter series later appeared as DLC for Mii Swordfighters. The stages Wily Castle from the Mega Man series and Suzaku Castle from the Street Fighter series appear.
Mega Man from the Mega Man series and Ryu of the Street Fighter series both return from Super Smash Bros. 4 in the base roster, in addition to the inclusion of Ken as Ryu's Echo Fighter. The stages Wily Castle and Suzaku Castle both return as well. Rathalos, a recurring monster from the Monster Hunter series, appears as a Boss and an Assist Trophy. Zero from the Mega Man X series was also added as a new Assist Trophy, along with the Wily Capsule from Mega Man 7. Guile, from the Street Fighter series, appears as an Assist Trophy as well, using the infamous "down-backing" technique from Street Fighter II.
