Trivia[edit]

  • The banner for the event pays homage to Pokemon Red and Blue, Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island, Final Fantasy VII, Sonic the Hedgehog, Kirby's Dream Land and The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time.
  • Solo is the only playable character originating from the 1990s not present in the event, due to him being an alternate costume for the Luminary.
    • The female Pokémon Trainer however, can be selected as an alternate costume for the male Pokémon Trainer which would break the theme since she debuted in the 2000s.
  • Spiral Mountain is the only stage from a 1990s game not present in the event.
    • This could arguably also apply to Kongo Falls, Castle Siege, Coliseum and King of Fighters Stadium, as while these stages are not based on specific games, the concepts originate from Donkey Kong Country, Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon and the Blade of Light, and Fatal Fury: King of Fighters respectively.
  • Mushroom Kingdom II is present in the event despite coming from a 1980s game, likely as a reference to Super Mario Bros. 2 (known as Super Mario USA in Japanese) first releasing in Japan in 1992.
    • The stage actually originated from Yume Kōjō: Doki Doki Panic, first released in Japan in 1987.
  • The European/Australian name may be a reference to Maurizio De Jorio's song "Running in the 90s".
  • Final Destination is present in the event, but not Battlefield, despite both originating from the original Super Smash Bros.. This is likely due to Smash 64's variation of Battlefield having a different name, being known as Duel Zone.
