Konami is known for many different popular video game series, such as Metal Gear, Castlevania, Bomberman, Contra, Gradius, Silent Hill, Frogger and Dance Dance Revolution.

In Super Smash Bros. Brawl[edit]

Solid Snake of Konami's flagship Metal Gear series appears as a playable character in Super Smash Bros. Brawl. In addition, many others from Konami's Metal Gear series, such as Gray Fox, Shadow Moses Island, and Metal Gear REX, appear in Brawl as well. Otacon, Colonel Roy Campbell and Mei Ling also appear in Snake's Smash Taunt in which they talk with Snake about the character he's battling.

In Super Smash Bros. Ultimate[edit]

After being absent in Super Smash Bros. 4, Snake and associated Metal Gear content return in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. Konami's long-running Castlevania series sees representation with the inclusion of Simon and his Echo Fighter Richter, as well as a Dracula's Castle stage which features several classic bosses. Death's Scythe was added as an item, being both the first item from a third-party company besides Bandai Namco, as well as the first item from a third-party playable character's series. Alucard appears as an Assist Trophy. Dracula appears as a boss in Classic Mode and Adventure Mode: World of Light. In addition, Konami-owned franchise Bomberman is represented by its titular character, Bomberman, appearing as a new Assist Trophy. Gray Fox returns as an Assist Trophy as well.
