Trivia[edit]

  • Min Min is the first spirit character to become a DLC fighter.
  • Interestingly, despite Min Min's challenger pack including the appropriate musical themes for Spring Man, Min Min and Twintelle, as well as the home stage for Spring Man in the form of Spring Stadium, their spirit battles do not change to accomdate them even after purchasing and downloading her pack, with Spring Man's spirit battle still utilizing the Boxing Ring stage while playing Title Theme - Wii Sports Club for the music instead of using Spring Stadium, Min Min's spirit battle still playing Dragon Driftway for the music instead of Ramen Bowl, and Twintelle's spirit battle still utilizing New Donk City for the music instead of Cinema Deux.
  • Despite appearing occasionally on the jumbotron in Spring Stadium, Misango, Lola Pop, Springtron, and Dr. Coyle do not appear as spirits. These characters were added post-launch in ARMS. Max Brass, however, does appear as a spirit despite also being added post-launch, though this may be due to him appearing in the base game as an NPC.
  • Spring Man and Twintelle are the first DLC Spirit Board spirits to appear in the World of Light and on the regular spirit board.
  • Ribbon Girl and Ninjara are the first spirits to gain spirit battles after being previously summon exclusive.
  • ARMS, Ice Climber, and Minecraft are the only series in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate with a playable character where all spirits originate from the same game.
    • ARMS, F-Zero, and Punch-Out!! are the only series in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate with a playable character where all spirits use artwork from the same game, respectively being ARMS, F-Zero GX, and the Wii version of Punch-Out!!. This is excluding Ice Climber, which uses sprites, and R.O.B., which uses real-life photographs.
  • Prior to Min Min's release, ARMS spirits were listed as "Others" spirits, and thus had no series symbol on the spirits list and 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.
  • ARMS, Minecraft, and Final Fantasy are the only universes introduced as DLC to not have all of their spirit battles use songs from their own universe (not counting Fatal Fury, whose songs from non-Fatal Fury series are still grouped under Fatal Fury in the Sound Test).
  • ARMS and Final Fantasy are the only playable universes that had spirits in the base game to have more DLC spirits than base game spirits.
