The Electroplankton universe (エレクトロプランクトン, Electroplankton) is one of the many unique universes represented in Super Smash Bros. Brawl and Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. The universe consists of only a single title (excluding the DSiWare re-release, split up as the game's 10 stages for individual sale): a relatively obscure music creation software. In Brawl, its only representation is a stage, Hanenbow, and a few stickers. In Ultimate, the Hanenbow stage returns with a new music track and a spirit.

In Super Smash Bros. Brawl[edit]

    Hanenbow is a secret stage in Brawl representing the Electroplankton universe. It is unlocked by finishing Event 28: Flower Blooms in the Echoes. Hanenbow is the only stage where My Music does not work; the music is generated by the actions of the players and the Hanenbow that fly around the stage. The leaves change color and angle when struck.

  • Electroplankton, Metal Gear, and Miiverse are the only primary universes to be entirely dropped from a Smash game, with Metal Gear and Electroplankton having no content whatsoever in SSB4 and Miiverse having no content in Ultimate. Ice Climber, while having its sole playable character(s) not returning and not having any stages in the same game, is still represented by trophies, two music tracks and the Polar Bear's appearance in Smash Run. However, both Metal Gear and Electroplankton made a return in Ultimate.
