The R.O.B.'s of Tomorrow (あすなろのロボット, Asunaro Robot) is the 10th co-op event match out of a total of 21 in Super Smash Bros. Brawl. Player 1 controls Lucario, while player 2 controls Ice Climbers. The two players need to work together to KO five R.O.B.s total. However, the R.O.B.s are not all the same size. The first R.O.B. is regular sized, and the next R.O.B.s are successively bigger, with a colossal R.O.B. as the fourth opponent. The last R.O.B. is much smaller, but its attacks pack a surprising punch.

Trivia[edit]

  • If Lucario uses its up tilt when the event starts, it has a slight chance of KO'ing the first R.O.B. when it appears on the screen.
  • The music track used for this event is Tunnel Scene (X), otherwise unavailable on Summit. The track is normally used on Lylat Cruise.
  • The Japanese title for the Event Match and the overall premise of the event, featuring R.O.B. gradually growing in size, references the Thujopsis tree and its mythos within Japan; a tall, sturdy tree, it reportedly received its Japanese name, asunaro, from a famous allegory: "Asu wa hinoki ni narou, loosely translating to, "Tomorrow I am going to be a hinoki cypress".
  • Lucario and the Ice Climbers first appeared in the The Glacial Peak in the Subspace Emissary. This event match could be a reference to that.
