The icon for the Fighters Pass Vol. 1.

In the Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Nintendo Direct on November 1st, 2018, Masahiro Sakurai confirmed that paid DLC would be available for Ultimate. The initial wave of content comes in the form of five Challenger Pack bundles, each containing one entirely unique fighter, one stage, and several music tracks. These bundles, which are also available through a complete pack known as the Fighters Pass, were released periodically through January 28th, 2020. Additionally, Piranha Plant was available for free as a limited time early purchase bonus, and is currently available for purchase separate from the Fighters Pass. On November 6th, 2018, Sakurai announced on his Twitter account that the initial DLC line-up was finalized, and that potential fighters were proposed by Nintendo, with Sakurai passing final approval on them.[1]

The icon for Fighters Pass Vol. 2.

During the Nintendo Direct on September 4th, 2019, Nintendo revealed that more DLC fighters were set to be in production after the first Fighters Pass, due to Ultimate's strong sales.[2] As with before, Nintendo proposed the potential fighters and Sakurai passed final approval.[3] On January 16th, 2020, Fighters Pass Vol. 2 was announced alongside Byleth, with the previous Fighters Pass retroactively being dubbed Vol. 1.[4] The Pass will include six Challenger Packs; just like in Vol. 1, each pack contains one fighter, one stage, and several music tracks.[5][6] Both Byleth and Vol. 2 were made available for purchase on January 28th, 2020. These six packs are planned to be released by December 31st, 2021. According to Sakurai, this will be the last DLC released for Ultimate.[7] He also said that the DLC characters for the Fighters Pass Vol. 2 may face delay or that development may be stopped indefinitely due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Because of lockdowns in various cities in Japan, development will continue through remote working. [8][9] Despite this, development for the Fighter Pass Vol. 2 is going smoothly without problems as of April 2020.[10]

Updates

Updates to the game are downloadable at no extra cost. In order to use DLC, the game must be updated to the latest version, which can be done automatically by starting the game from the system's Home Menu, or manually triggered from the Switch's Home Menu. Most updates also adjust game balance and mechanics, while fixing glitches and other errors as well. Changelogs for all updates are available at the links above.

As with any other game, DLC data is added via free updates. Completing a transaction to receive DLC is merely a "ticket" to grant access to said content. What this means is that DLC not purchased in an updated version is still technically installed but locked, and thus is accessible indirectly. Content that is locked can be seen and played against with opponents connecting via a system that has paid for the DLC (within Wireless and Online modes). Aside from this, locked content can also be seen using amiibo as Figure Players, and saving uploaded or shared replays.

Fighters

As every veteran is in the base game and none were cut, all DLC characters are newcomers.

Each DLC character is unlocked in Adventure Mode: World of Light after awakening 10 fighters.

Spirits

While most spirits are available for free, usually launched during Spirit Board events or with the release of a new Challenger Pack DLC, DLC Fighter spirits cannot be obtained without owning their corresponding Challenger Pack. Fighter spirits can be unlocked through Classic Mode or purchased from the Shop for 300 coins. Spirits associated with an owned Challenger Pack can be fought and obtained through a special DLC Spirit Board that does not have spirits expire or use the Puppet fighter scene; otherwise, they may appear for purchase in the Vault Shop whether their corresponding Challenger Pack is owned or not. Spirits introduced in Spirit Board events are initially obtainable only for the duration of that event, and become permanently available at a later date.

During the development of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, several spirits received changes due to updates, Challenger Packs, or purchasable Mii Costumes.

Challenger Packs

Every fighter, with the exception of Piranha Plant, is bundled with a stage, music tracks, and spirits related to the fighter on a DLC Spirit Board. With the exception of fighter spirits, these DLC spirits can also be purchased from the Vault Shop even if their respective Challenger Packs are not purchased. There are five Challenger Packs in total in the Fighters Pass Vol. 1, and six in Fighters Pass Vol. 2. Both Passes are priced at a discount.

Trivia

  • Following the announcement of the Hero and Banjo & Kazooie, the Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Official Site went from listing six DLC characters (Piranha Plant, Joker, and four "unknown"/empty slots) to listing eight (adding the Hero and Banjo & Kazooie without removing any of the empty slots). As there was no corresponding announcement of additional downloadable characters, this was likely an error, and it was later fixed. A similar mistake was later made with Sephiroth's addition, maintaining four empty slots instead of replacing one. This was also fixed.
  • Challenger Pack 1 is the only Challenger Pack to not have a Mr. Sakurai Presents presentation, instead having a presentation similar to a traditional Nintendo Direct.
  • Challenger Pack 2 is currently the only Challenger Pack that doesn't contain any Smash remixes.
  • Challenger Pack 4 currently holds the most music added as downloadable content in both Ultimate and SSB4's history, with a total of 50 tracks.
    • Similarly, Fatal Fury has the highest music count out of any third party series across both games, due to the various tracks from multiple series.
  • Challenger Pack 5 is currently the only Challenger Pack to have none of its contents revealed prior to its Mr. Sakurai Presents presentation, only them be revealed during it. While Challenger Packs 1 and 6 also did not reveal their contents, their fighters, Joker and a character from ARMS, were revealed prior to their presentations (at the Game Awards 2018 and a March 2020 Nintendo Direct Mini respectively). Additionally, while the short presentation that contained Steve's reveal trailer was considered part of a Mr. Sakurai Presents, the longer in-depth video was released a few days after.
  • Challenger Packs 5, 8, and 9 are the only ones so far to include music tracks that can play in multiple stages (as their characters are from pre-existing universes that already had stages in the base game), not including Battlefield, Small Battlefield, Big Battlefield, and Final Destination.
  • With the exceptions of Terry, Sephiroth and Kazuya, every DLC character has at least one other character to assist them in their Final Smash.
  • Thus far, every DLC fighter that is part of a Fighters Pass has had a cinematic Final Smash (though Pyra, Mythra, and Kazuya's are a hybrid of a cinematic and in-game Final Smash).
    • Also thus far, no DLC fighter's Final Smash is able to catch all seven opponents. Joker's can only catch four, Hero, Byleth, Sephiroth, Pyra, and Mythra's can only catch three, Piranha Plant's can only catch two (using Petey Piranha's cages), and Banjo & Kazooie, Terry, Min Min, and Steve's can only catch one.
  • With the sole exception of Northern Cave, every DLC stage has featured other characters making cameos on the stage (though in Spring Stadium's case, the characters only make cameos as pictures on the jumbotron in the background).
  • With the sole exception of Piranha Plant (referred to by its Japanese name "packun"), every downloadable fighter’s name in the code differs from that of their actual names. Joker's code name is "jack", Hero's is "brave", Banjo & Kazooie's is "buddy", Terry's is "dolly", Byleth's is "master", Min Min's is "tantan", Steve's is "pickel", Sephiroth's is "edge", Pyra and Mythra's code name as a pair is "element", while individually Pyra's is "eflame" and Mythra's is "elight".
  • Banjo, Kazooie and Min Min are currently the only DLC characters whose voice clips are recycled from their own games rather than recorded specifically for Smash, while Piranha Plant and Steve are the only DLC fighters thus far to not have any voice clips.
  • Hero (specifically, his Erdrick variant), Banjo, Kazooie, and Min Min are currently the only DLC characters to appear in an animated trailer other than their own. The former three appeared in Sephiroth's trailer, while the latter appeared in Kazuya's trailer.
  • In North America, when trailers for new Mii Fighter costumes are shown off, costumes of characters that are from an ESRB M-rated franchise only show the name of the character alongside the Super Smash Bros. Ultimate logo, rather than the logo of the franchise the character is from. So far, this has occurred with Altaïr from Assassin's Creed, Vault Boy from Fallout, and Travis Touchdown from No More Heroes.
    • Persona and Final Fantasy, which are also M-rated series, do not follow this pattern due to having playable characters (and the game that the latter series represents is not M-rated).
    • Other regions show the logo of the game regardless of the game's age rating.
  • Oddly, when the Mii Fighter costumes for Barret and Tifa were shown, the trailer in Sephiroth's Mr. Sakurai Presents video as well as the separately-uploaded trailer with the Wave 8 Mii costumes uploaded the same day shows the logo of Final Fantasy VII next to the Super Smash Bros. Ultimate logo. However, for unexplained reasons, the separate video was taken down and reuploaded on January 11, 2021, and the Final Fantasy VII logo was changed to just Final Fantasy.
    • Despite that, the Super Smash Bros. Ultimate x Final Fantasy screen still appears during the Chocobo reveal.
  • At the beginning of November 2019, on the North American English-language official site only, Piranha Plant's purchase cost was incorrectly changed from US$4.99/CA$6.29 to US$5.99/CA$7.55 to match all of the other fighters. This error remains as of May 2021. The actual eShop price charged remains the correct (lower) price. This error does not appear to be present in any other languages or regions.
