This article is about idle poses in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. For general information, see idle pose.

The following is a list of idle poses in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.

Note that some characters, such as Luigi, Pit, Wolf or Fox, will revert to their previous idle pose from Brawl or Smash 4 when holding a small item, such as a Capsule. Additionally, certain clone-type characters, namely Roy, Daisy and Lucas, will revert to the idle stance of the character they are based on when holding a small item.
