    • Link represents Erik, a quick but fragile character who wields swords and boomerangs.
    • Zelda and the tiny Robin respectively represent Serena and Veronica, both mages who thus primarily prefer their special moves.
    • Sheik represents Sylvando, who wields swords and small knives, so the puppet fighter is equipped with a Beam Sword and often uses Needle Storm.
    • Zero Suit Samus represents Jade, as both are skilled martial artists with feminine figures, while the tiny King Dedede represents Rab, a rotund man who wields heavy wands similar to Dedede's hammer.
    • Finally, Ike represents Hendrik, a knight who can wield greatswords similar to Ike's Ragnell.

Trivia[edit]

  • Prior to the informational video about Hero, images of Dragon Quest spirits were accidentally leaked through the Smash World spirit team database.
  • The Hero's Comrades spirit battle has the most different fighters of any spirit battle, with seven.
  • Tockles is the first (and so far, the only) spirit to be a part of a universe introduced via DLC, but to be released at a later date than that of the DLC itself.
    • Tockles is additionally the first (and so far, the only) spirit to be retroactively added to a DLC Spirit Board.
