The Color TV-Game universe (カラー テレビゲーム, Color TV-Game) refers to the Super Smash Bros. series's collection of properties based on the Color TV-Game dedicated consoles made by Nintendo in the late 1970s. In 1977, Nintendo released the Color TV-Game 6, a console that played variants on Light Tennis, a game very similar to Pong. Later consoles in the series include the Color TV-Game 15 (1977) and Color TV-Game 112 (1978). All of these consoles were exclusively released in Japan; Nintendo would later enter the international home console market with the Nintendo Entertainment System in 1985.

In Super Smash Bros. 4[edit]

Only one property of this universe appears in this game.

  • Color TV-Game 15: An Assist Trophy based on the 1977 light tennis console. Paddles appear on either side of the stage, hitting the "ball" back and forth and damaging characters in between them.

In Super Smash Bros. Ultimate[edit]

Color TV-Game 15 appears once more as an Assist Trophy. When summoned, the background of the current stage is now completely dulled out to resemble the graphics of the original game, as well as to increase visibility. It can be defeated by attacking the paddles.


  • The Color TV-Game universe is the oldest universe represented in Smash debuting in the year 1977. It is also one of only three properties represented in Smash to debut in the 1970s, the others being Galaxian and Sheriff.
