Trivia[edit]

  • The Duck Hunt series and R.O.B. series have the fewest Spirits of any first-party series, each with a total of 3.
  • None of the Duck Hunt universe Spirits are fought on the Duck Hunt stage. This is likely due to the fact that these Spirits originate from games unrelated to Duck Hunt, other than requiring the NES Zapper to play them.
  • Unlike the Pac-Man and Fatal Fury universes, where spirits from other Namco or SNK franchises respectively are labeled as "Others" spirits, all three Duck Hunt spirits are labeled as part of the Duck Hunt series, even though Duck Hunt's fighter spirit is the only one with an actual relation to the series.
