The following is a list of all on-screen appearances in Super Smash Bros. 4. Dr. Mario, Mewtwo, and Roy received new on-screen appearances due to their absences in Brawl, since this feature was absent in Melee.


  • Emerges from her Bat Within form and produces a purple symbol that represents Umbra Witch magic.


  • Emerges from a wall of flames hunched over, before standing upright.

Bowser Jr.[edit]

Captain Falcon[edit]

  • The Blue Falcon spins to a stop, Captain Falcon jumps out, and then Blue Falcon speeds off. The animation differs depending on which direction he is facing; when facing right, he simply climbs out, while when facing left, he somersaults while doing so.




  • Falls onto the stage in dragon form, then transforms into human form.

Dark Pit[edit]

  • Descends from a beam of darkness.

Diddy Kong[edit]

Donkey Kong[edit]

  • Breaks out of a DK Barrel, making a pose.

Dr. Mario[edit]

  • Megavitamins build upon the ground in the shape of the bottom of the bottles from the Dr. Mario games, and Dr. Mario appears when they recede. Looking closely at the Megavitamins as they disappear shows they do so because their colours line up, just as they do in their games.

Duck Hunt[edit]

  • The dog jumps onto the stage from the foreground into some 8-bit grass, then does his infamous laugh. A reference to the intro sequence of the original Duck Hunt game.


  • Ejects from an upside-down Arwing.

King Dedede[edit]

  • Is carried in on a palanquin by four Waddle Dees, then jumps off, scattering them.



  • Appears in a whirlwind and unsheathes his sword.

Little Mac[edit]

  • Jogs onto the stage and throws off his pink training suit (unless the player chose to wear it at the character select screen, in which case Mac simply does the throwing motion without removing the suit).


  • Teleports on stage, floats for a second, gathers aura in its hands then lands.



  • Warps while masked onto the stage using warp magic with a twirl, removes her mask, and unsheathes her sword.


  • Jumps out of a Warp Pipe with his hands on his face nervously saying, "Let's-a go."


  • Jumps out of a Warp Pipe punching his right fist in the air while shouting "Let's-a go!".


  • Warps onto the stage using warp magic with a twirl and unsheathes his sword.

Mii Swordfighter[edit]

Mr. Game & Watch[edit]

  • Moves along a row of faded Game & Watch LCD frames until he reaches the foreground. Unlike in Brawl, the color of the frames match the alternate costume.


  • Arrives having used Teleport, then shakes off the soot he gathered after crashing.



  • Starts out as the classic Pac-Man sprite and then jumps out of it into his normal form.

  • Jumps onto the stage in ball form from the foreground and gives a thumbs-up.

Toon Link[edit]

  • Appears in an explosion, then equips his sword and shield.


  • Exits out of a house and cheers to the camera. References the start of Animal Crossing games, where the player exits their home upon opening a save file.


  • Rides in from the foreground on his bike, then falls off. The bike then explodes and Wario dusts himself off.

Wii Fit Trainer[edit]

  • Steps off of the living Wii Balance Board seen in the Wii Fit series, who then jumps behind the stage waving goodbye and disappears.


  • Breaks out of a Yoshi Egg and shakes his rear end. The color of the Yoshi will determine the color of the spots on the egg.

Zero Suit Samus[edit]

  • Jumps out of her Gunship and lands with her jet boots.
