Trivia[edit]

Fire Attack Spirit prior to the 1.1.0 update
  • As with Mr. Game & Watch's forward smash, the feather from the Fire Attack spirit was removed with the 1.1.0 update.
  • The Game & Watch, R.O.B., and Wii Fit universes are the only universes whose spirit battles all have the same character as the main enemy, Game & Watch's being Mr. Game & Watch.
    • However, the Game & Watch universe is the only one of the three whose spirit battles feature different fighters as minions.
  • All of the Game & Watch non-Fighter spirits are fought on Flat Zone X.
  • Since the Flagman's spirit battle spawns Special Flags, it is the only spirit battle where the player can lose a life and still win. Consequently, it is the only spirit battle that can be won by using Kamikazee.
  • Interestingly, all three of the primary Game & Watch spirits are the Shield-type.
