Fighter spirit

From SmashWiki, the Super Smash Bros. wiki

Fighter Spirits are a type of Spirit in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. As the name suggests, they are Spirits that are based on the playable roster in the game. Like Master Spirits, Fighter Spirits do not have any stats, as they are not used in gameplay in any way, though unlike Master Spirits, they are not used to assist the player at all, only being used for display purposes.

A character's Fighter Spirit is unlocked either when the player completes Classic Mode as that character, or they unlock it in the Vault shop for 300G. When the player views the Fighter Spirit in the Collection, the default artwork will be artwork from their home series, but the player can switch it with their artwork from Ultimate instead. Characters that have other characters as alternate costumes (such as gender swaps, the Koopalings, Alph, and the Dragon Quest III, IV, and VIII Heroes) or significant alternate costumes (such as Mario's Building and Wedding Outfits or Pikachu Libre) have separate Fighter Spirits from the base fighter than can only be unlocked in the Vault Shop. The Mario (Wedding), Meta Ridley, Ike (Path of Radiance), and Cloud (Advent Children) Spirits can also be unlocked via challenges, and the Mario (Wedding) Spirit can also be unlocked via the Wedding Mario amiibo.

Trivia[edit]

  • Several Fighter Spirits do not have artwork from their home series to swap with their Ultimate artwork, instead solely using their Ultimate artwork. These characters are Pokémon Trainer, Robin, Wii Fit Trainer, Cloud and the Mii Fighters.
    • Cloud is the only third-party fighter with this distinction.
  • Super Mario has the most Fighter Spirits out of any series including the spin-off universes as well.
  • The Legend of Zelda is the only universe with multiple fighters whose Fighter Spirits are not organized by Fighter number.
  • Meta Ridley and Ike (Path of Radiance) are the only Fighter Spirits that cannot be unlocked via the Vault Shop.
  • Lucas, Mr. Game and Watch, and the Ice Climbers are the only fighters to use sprites for their Fighter Spirits.
  • Ness and R.O.B are the only fighters to use real-life photographs for their Fighter Spirits.
  • In the Japanese, Chinese, and Korean versions, R.O.B.’s default costume is with his Famicom Robot colors, but his Fighter Spirit still uses the Robotic Operating Buddy.
  • Aside from those who only use their Ultimate artwork, Pac-Man and Bayonetta (from the first game), are the only fighters whose Spirits use artwork from a game outside of their own series, specifically from the Sonic and Anarchy Reigns series.
  • Min Min is currently the only character who had a spirit before becoming playable; as such, her fighter spirit is denoted with "(Fighter)".
    • Min Min is also the only Fighter Spirit that is not listed before her series' Primary and Support Spirits, as the ARMS Spirits that are part of the base game precede her.
  • Piranha Plant and Banjo & Kazooie are currently the only DLC fighters to use 3D renders for their Fighter Spirits rather than 2D hand-drawn artwork.
