DLC Spirits (mode)

From SmashWiki, the Super Smash Bros. wiki
The main selection menu for the mode as of Version 8.0.0, allowing players to select the Spirit Board of a specific Challenger Pack from Fighters Pass Vol. 1 & 2.

DLC Spirits is a Super Smash Bros. Ultimate mode added in update 3.0.0 where players can collect spirits based on each respectable Challenger Pack, with the background and music of the menu of each DLC Spirit Board being themed after it.

Unlike the Spirit Board, Spirit Battles in this mode can be played as many times as the player wants, and if the player defeats a spirit, then they get it right away instead of trying to shoot it, much like in the World of Light. These boards can also have multiple pages if there are more than eight spirits from a given board (excluding the enhanced spirits).

In 3.0.0, the DLC Spirits button originally went straight to the Persona 5's Spirit Board, but starting with update 4.0.0, the selection was changed to a menu containing the various Spirit Boards for each Challenger Pack of Fighters Pass Vol. 1 & 2, with the options for the unreleased boards being labeled as "COMING SOON". The only way to access spirits on the DLC boards without the DLC being purchased is by spending Gold on them in the Vault Shop.

Completing all the Spirit Battles on a board will reward the player with 10,000 Gold.
