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 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, the second being Sophia from Persona.
    • Tockles is additionally the first (and so far, the only) spirit to be retroactively added to a DLC Spirit Board.
  • Prior to the 9.0.0 update, the spirit for Slime did not contain the series name. This was changed to differentiate it from the enemy of the same name from Minecraft.
