Isabelle (しずえ, Shizue) is a playable character in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. The secretary for the player character in Animal Crossing: New Leaf and de facto mascot of the Animal Crossing franchise, she was announced as a newcomer at the end of the September 13, 2018 Nintendo Direct. While she shares many moves with Villager, Isabelle is not an Echo Fighter and has a multitude of unique moves, attributes, and animations; and as such Isabelle is classified as fighter #68.
How to unlock
Complete one of the following:
With the exception of the third method, Isabelle must then be defeated on Town and City.
The infinite Assist Trophy glitch can be performed with two Isabelles using Fishing Rods to catch the Assist Trophy at the same time. This causes one Isabelle to summon an endless amount of a single Assist Trophy. This glitch can be used on most other items for varying effects, but the Assist Trophy gives by far the most extreme results.
The second glitch is a game-crashing glitch which involves a Villager. Isabelle or Villager must use their forward or back aerials, with the other character using Pocket to store the slingshot pellet. From there, they have to constantly unpocket, throw, and repocket the item very quickly. If successful, an error message will pop up and close the game.
The final glitch occurs when using Fishing Rod as a tether recovery with a specific positioning and momentum. During this glitch, Isabelle will teleport and land on stage immediately, rather than grabbing the ledge.
Note: All numbers are listed as base damage, without the 1v1 multiplier.
Classic Mode: Best in Show
Isabelle's opponents are composed of nearly all the female challengers that appear in Ultimate; the only female challengers that do not appear are Dark Samus and Spiky-eared Pichu. The only non-female challenger is Popo of the Ice Climbers, as it is impossible for Nana to be alone.
Role in World of Light
Although Isabelle does not appear in the World of Light opening cutscene, she was vaporized and later imprisoned alongside the rest of the fighters (sans Kirby) when Galeem unleashed his beams of light.
She can be found near a small town on a secluded road, that requires the spirit of Kapp'n (Wild World) to be driven through a tunnel to reach.
