Corrin (カムイ, Kamui) is a playable character in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate that was officially confirmed on June 12th, 2018 As in Smash 4, both male and female versions of the character are playable, with male being the default. Corrin is classified as fighter #62.
Cam Clarke and Marcella Lentz-Pope reprise their roles in the English version of Ultimate, voicing male and female Corrin respectively, albeit through recycled voice clips from Smash 4. Nobunaga Shimazaki and Satomi Satō also reprise their roles as the male and female Corrin in the Japanese version of the game, also with recycled voice clips from Smash 4.
How to unlock
Complete one of the following:
With the exception of the third method, Corrin must then be defeated on Coliseum.
Changes from Super Smash Bros. 4
Corrin has received a mix of buffs and nerfs in the transition to Ultimate, but was nerfed overall. Corrin's mobility has been improved, which helps with the more offensive style and faster movement of Ultimate. On top of this, down throw is a better KO option, and all aerials now have reduced landing lag to go along with the rest of the roster.
However, Corrin's nerfs seem to outweigh the buffs. Dragon Lunge has been significantly nerfed, as Corrin does not get as much range with the kick. The kick is drastically more punishable on the backwards kick as Corrin will not travel nearly as far. Corrin's grab is also slower, the stun time from Dragon Fang Shot has been significantly reduced, and Counter Surge has been weakened. Finally, Corrin's Dragon Ascent is very easy to outrange or beat out with moves that have decent range, so it is more susceptible to edgeguarding than it was in Smash 4. These changes have resulted in Corrin being a worse character than in SSB4. Corrin has achieved few notable results in Ultimate's early metagame due to Corrin's most successful mains in Smash 4, Cosmos, Ryuga, and Zackray, dropping the character, while other Corrin mains have failed to go far in tournaments. This make it uncertain about Corrin's true level of viability and how the character compares to Smash 4.
Note: All numbers are listed as base damage, without the 1v1 multiplier.
Classic Mode: Between White and Black
Role in World of Light
Although neither gender of Corrin does not appear in the World of Light opening cutscene, they were vaporized and later imprisoned alongside the rest of the fighters (sans Kirby) when Galeem unleashed his beams of light.
Male Corrin was one of the many fighters that fell under Dharkon's control upon Galeem's first defeat. He is on a platform made of clouds in the Mysterious Dimension sub-area, guarded by the spirit of Azura (whose spirit battle ironically is against the default Female Corrin).
Corrin's Fighter Spirits can be obtained by completing Classic Mode. They are also available periodically for purchase in the shop for 500 coins. Unlocking Corrin in World of Light allows the player to preview the first spirit below in the Spirit List under the name "???". As Fighter Spirits, they cannot be used in Spirit Battles and are purely aesthetic. Each Fighter Spirit has an alternate version that replaces them with their artwork in Ultimate.
