Final Destination (SSBU)
Final Destination (終点, Endpoint) is a stage in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. It was revealed on August 8, 2018. In World of Light, Mario, Sheik, Marth, Snake, Villager, Mii Brawler and Mii Swordfighter's unlock battles are fought here.
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. Its background primarily travels through three different nebulae: a cream-colored one with a black hole, a green one with psychedelic crystalline objects floating in the background, and a fiery orange one partially obscured by blue clouds. 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.
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.
If the music to this stage is played backwards, part of Lifelight can be heard.
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 used when fighting 50 false characters as Master Hand in World of Light.
As Final Destination lacks any hazards to begin with, no changes are made when stage hazards are turned off.
As Adventure Mode: World of Light Boss Stages
While Final Destination is still used for the fights between Master Hand, Crazy Hand, and Giga Bowser, the five boss stages used for Galeem and Dharkon’s boss fights feature a platform that resembles Final Destination, but with four soft platforms arranged in a diamond formation above the stage, as well as removing all decorative features above the stage. These five stages, with the exception of the third, primarily differ from their backgrounds.
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.
