Goemon is the main protagonist of the Goemon series created by Konami.

Origin[edit]

Based on the famous folkloric Japanese thief Ishikawa Goemon, Goemon is portrayed as a fiery young man from Edo, with a sense to always fight for what is right. Much like his historical inspiration, he was originally a noble thief, stealing from the rich and giving to the poor, thus amassing a bounty which attracted samurai and ninja to target him. Goemon soon turned into a normal hero, defending Edo from various threats, ranging from pirates to space aliens, leading to the Lord and Princess Yuki to pardon him. Goemon uses a variety of tools and abilities in his adventures, including a giant kiseru he swings as a weapon, throwable Ryō coins which can be enhanced with fire magic, a chain pipe (which acts similarly to a grappling hook), and the ability to push large blocks. He can also use a Triton Shell to summon the gigantic fighting robot Goemon Impact, constructed by the Wise Old Man, a brilliant inventor. Goemon's allies include the hammer-wielding ninja Ebisumaru, the sword-wielding kunoichi Yae, and the bomb-throwing robot ninja Sasuke, who was also built by the Wise Old Man.

In Super Smash Bros. Ultimate[edit]

As a costume[edit]

The Goemon costume in Ultimate.

Goemon appears as a Mii Costume for the Mii Swordfighter as part of Round 3; with his kiseru replacing the sword.

Trivia[edit]

  • Goemon is the first Mii Fighter costume that is from a series by Konami.
  • The update text recommends using the Shuriken of Light to approximate Goemon's Ryō coins.
