Trivia[edit]

  • Both Morgana and Yusuke Kitagawa's spirit battles relate to how they share the same voice actor as their fighter, as Morgana shares his Japanese voice actress with Pikachu (which itself is actually referenced in Persona 5), and Yusuke shares both his Japanese and English voice actors with Chrom.
  • In the Phantom Thieves of Hearts battle, Haru Okumura is the only Phantom Thief who will appear in the background. As a result, the character who represents her in her spirit battle, Villager, does not appear in the spirit battle.
    • Additionally, Futaba Sakura is the only Phantom Thief in the Phantom Thieves of Hearts spirit battle to not appear in any capacity outside of Joker's All-Out Attack Final Smash, as she cannot appear in the background for Mementos nor does the character who represents her in her spirit battle, Inkling, appear in the spirit battle.
    • Likewise, Goro Akechi is the only Phantom Thief to not appear in any capacity outside of his spirit battle, as he does not appear in the background of Mementos or appear during Joker's All-Out Attack Final Smash, and the Marth that represents him is not present during the Phantom Thieves of Hearts spirit battle, reflecting his absence from said spirit's artwork.
  • The Phantom Thieves of Hearts battle is the first spirit battle in the game to have a DLC fighter as the Puppet Fighter (Joker).
  • In all versions of Ultimate, Ryuji Sakamoto's spirit does not have a Rising Sun Flag symbol on his shoe, matching a similar censoring done in the Chinese and Korean versions of Persona 5 due to the symbol being considered offensive in Asia.
  • Akechi, Igor, and Caroline & Justine are the only Spirits who do not make a physical appearance in Ultimate
    • Additionally, Akechi is the only Phantom Thief whose Phantom Thief outfit does not make an appearance as a Spirit, due to Persona 5 not having artwork of him in his Crow outfit.
  • Persona, ARMS, and Final Fantasy are the only series in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate with a playable character where all current Spirits use artwork from the same game, respectively being Persona 5, ARMS, and Ultimate, mainly due to Cloud not having any artwork from Final Fantasy VII to swap for his Ultimate artwork.
    • This is excluding Ice Climber and Game & Watch, which use sprites, and R.O.B, which uses real-life photographs.
