The Golden Sun universe (黄金の太陽, Golden Sun) is a series of fantasy RPGs developed by Camelot Software Planning and thematically based on the four classical elements. While it does not have any playable characters, it is represented in the Super Smash Bros. series by an Assist Trophy, a trophy, multiple spirits, and two music tracks.

In Super Smash Bros. Brawl[edit]

Assist Trophy[edit]

  • Isaac, the protagonist of Golden Sun appears as an Assist Trophy in Brawl. When summoned, he uses the Psynergy aid "Move", which will push opponents away powerfully without inflicting damage to them. This is reminiscent of how Isaac, Garet or Felix would use the Utility Psynergy "Move" in their games' respective overworld to shift objects telekinetically.

Music[edit]

Trophy[edit]

Isaac A strong-willed Psynergy adept of the bloodline of an ancient race thought to have been lost with the downfall of civilization. He can manipulate earth-based forces and is also a highly skilled swordsman. He sets out to protect a lighthouse that can release the sealed powers of alchemy. In Smash Bros., he uses "Move" energy, which creates an energy field that pushes foes away.
