Final Destination (SSBU)
Final Destination (終点, Endpoint) is a stage in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. It was revealed on August 8, 2018.
Like its predecessors, Final Destination consists of a single platform with ledges that can be grabbed. Compared to previous iterations, it appears to have crystalline texture with mechanical elements, along with a background traveling through what appears to be space. This iteration of Final Destination is shorter than in past games, now being the same length as Battlefield. This is also true of all Ω Forms. Anytime the stage is loaded, it will start on a different background and if the music to this stage is played backwards you can also hear part of Lifelight.
While in Vs. Mode with more than 4 players, the stage itself increases to be 1.5 times its normal size, while increasing its camera boundaries and blast-lines to compensate; this is also stated as a tip in the Stage Tips Section in the game. This also affects all Ω form variations of any stage as well.
The boss battles against Galeem and Dharkon use a unique form of Final Destination that has four soft platforms arranged in a diamond formation above the stage. The main platform is also simpler, removing all decorative elements above the stage, leaving just the flat surface. During the first fight with Galeem and Dharkon, the background is fixed to a theme corresponding to the boss on the stage (Galeem’s is fixed on the cream-colored clouds, while Dharkon’s is fixed on the dark nebula).
During the final battle, the stage’s background differs from that of the playable Final Destination, that being the sunset-like background seen at the end of the opening movie. When either Galeem or Dharkon is close to defeat, the background changes to another unique background, being two still nebulae, one cream-colored and the other black. There are also two unique backgrounds on this stage, one each for after either Galeem or Dharkon have been defeated, but the other one is still standing. Galeem’s resembles a bright nebula, while Dharkon’s resembles red, stormy clouds.
The vertical scrolling stage just prior to this fight, as well as the boss selection arena just prior to actually encountering Galeem and Dharkon also appear similar to this version of Final Destination.
Ω form and Battlefield form
Final Destination itself can be selected as an Ω form, but doing so is identical to selecting the normal form.
The Battlefield form of Final Destination is identical to its regular form, but it has the addition of three soft platforms that are unique to this form and are based off of the ones when fighting Galeem and/or Dharkon in World of Light. It is also the same exact design when fighting 50 false characters as Master Hand in World of Light.
Like in previous games, Final Destination is considered a legal starter stage in tournaments, owing to its simple layout and lack of any disruptive stage hazards.
