Dr. Mario (SSBU)
Dr. Mario (ドクターマリオ, Doctor Mario) is a playable character in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. He was officially confirmed as playable on June 12th, 2018. Dr. Mario is classified as fighter #18.
Changes from Super Smash Bros. 4
While Dr. Mario is still a slower and stronger clone of Mario, he is not classified as an Echo Fighter. Aside from having an updated idle animation, an altered animation for his side special (which itself also now reflects projectiles upward), as well as receiving a new back throw, he does not appear to have been further decloned. He has also received many of the same changes as Mario.
Role in World of Light
Although Dr. Mario does not appear in the World of Light opening cutscene, he was vaporized and later imprisoned alongside the rest of the fighters (sans Kirby) when Galeem unleashed his beams of light.
In gameplay, Dr. Mario is a separate Spirit from the original Mario, as with Spirits of Mario's various forms and transformations such as Paper Mario and Rock Mario; however, the story significance of this is unknown.
