Downloadable content (SSBU)/List of DLC 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 fighter. Fighter spirits can be unlocked through Classic Mode or purchased from the Shop for 300 Gold. 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. Spirits introduced via save data bonuses in a major version release were initially obtainable only through possessing corresponding save data, and became universally available upon the next major version release.
