The following is a list of all on-screen appearances in Super Smash Bros. Brawl. All Melee debutants who returned in Brawl (Bowser, Peach, Zelda, Sheik, the Ice Climbers, Marth, Mr. Game & Watch, Falco, and Ganondorf) received new on-screen appearances in this game, as the feature was absent in the former.


  • Emerges from a wall of flames.

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.

Diddy Kong[edit]

  • Breaks out of a Donkey Kong Country-style DK Barrel and claps his hands.

Donkey Kong[edit]

  • Breaks out of a Donkey Kong Country-style DK Barrel, grunts and makes a strongman pose.


  • Ejects from an upside-down Arwing.


  • Ejects from an Arwing.


  • Emerges from a portal of dark magic.

Ice Climbers[edit]

  • The condor flies in with them hanging from his feet, then they jump off, high-fiving each other afterward. The high-five animation differs depending on which direction they are facing.



  • Emerges from a Poké Ball, then does a short, bouncy dance.

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. A whirlwind was used to teleport among dungeons in The Legend of Zelda. Also, a whirlwind was used to teleport Link in games where he makes use of his Ocarina, particularly through the Song of Soaring.


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



  • Jumps out of a Warp Pipe in a scared pose, anxiously saying "Let's-a go." His pose is similar to Luigi's face on the cover of Luigi's Mansion. Similar to Mario's appearance but his pose is different.


  • Jumps out of a Warp Pipe punching his right fist into the air while shouting "Let's-a go!". His pose is similar to his artwork from New Super Mario Bros.. Luigi's appearance is similar but different.


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

Meta Knight[edit]

  • Teleports in, wrapped in his cape. This is similar in appearance to his up taunt.

Mr. Game & Watch[edit]

  • Moves along a row of faded Game & Watch LCD frames until he reaches the foreground.


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



  • Appears spinning out of a shower of hearts, then winks and poses with her parasol saying "Hi!".


  • Emerges from a Poké Ball and emits sparks from its cheeks.


  • Appears onstage from a beam of light from the heavens while looking upwards.

Pokémon Trainer[edit]


  • Assembles piece by piece as his parts drop from the sky. This may be a reference to his appearance in Kirby's Dream Land 3.


  • Arrives from a Super Metroid-style save point, though the design is somewhat altered.


  • Appears in magical sparks.


  • Appears kneeling with lighting and sparks around him. He also appears to be turning visible. This is a reference to the opening scene in Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty when Snake is using stealth camouflage and he does a freefall jump onto a ship. The impact from the landing causes the stealth camouflage to malfunction. Snake also sometimes says, "Kept you waiting, huh?" which is what Snake said to Otacon after the freefall jump.


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

Toon Link[edit]

  • Appears in a cel-shaded, The Wind Waker-style explosion, then unsheathes his sword.


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



  • Breaks out of a Yoshi Egg and shakes his rear end. Even if a Yoshi is selected with a color other than green, he will still break out of a white egg with green spots regardless of what costume is being used.


Zero Suit Samus[edit]

  • Stands up from a kneeling position as her Power Suit falls off. Power Suit Pieces are scattered around Samus, which the player can then throw at their opponents.
