Trivia[edit]

  • Min Min is the first base game spirit character to become a DLC fighter.
  • Spring Man and Twintelle are the first DLC Spirit board spirits to appear in the World of Light and on the regular spirit board.
    • Because of this, Min Min and the aforementioned ARMS spirits are the only spirits that do not have ARMS music playing in their Spirit Battles. This makes ARMS the only DLC introduced universe containing Spirit Battles that do not have songs from their own universe (not counting Fatal Fury which uses non Fatal Fury music for the "others" spirits).
  • Ribbon Girl and Ninjara are the first spirits to gain spirit battles after being previously summon exclusive.
  • ARMS and Ice Climber are the only series in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate with a playable character where all Spirits originate from the same game.
  • ARMS, F-Zero, Punch-Out, Persona, and Final Fantasy are the only series in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate with a playable character where all current Spirits use artwork from the same game, respectively being ARMS, F-Zero GX, Punch-Out (Wii), Persona 5, and Ultimate, mainly due to Cloud not having any artwork from Final Fantasy VII to swap for his Ultimate artwork.
    • This is excluding Ice Climber and Game & Watch, which use sprites, and R.O.B, which uses real-life photographs.
  • Prior to Min Min's release, these spirits were listed as "Others" spirits, and thus would have either no series symbol on the spirits list or a generic ellipsis on the party setup. This was changed after the 8.0.0 update.
  • Min Min's Primary Spirit is the only ARMS spirit that does not appear on the ARMS DLC Spirit Board. This is likely due to Min Min herself being a playable character.
  • All ARMS Spirit Battles that use Mii Brawlers as puppet fighters use Flashing Mach Punch, which references the Rush attack that all ARMS characters can use.
