Lucas (リュカ, Lucas) is a playable character in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. He was confirmed as a playable character on June 12th, 2018. Lucas is classified as fighter #37.
Lani Minella reprises her role as Lucas, albeit through recycled voice lines.
Changes from Super Smash Bros. 4
Lucas received a mix of buffs and nerfs. His combo game was significantly toned down as down throw no longer combos into any of his aerials and techable footstools also hinders him. PK Thunder 2 also has halted momentum at the end of its animation which shortens his recovery. Lucas also has a much harder time landing thanks to him only being able to air dodge once in the air and PSI Magnet no longer halts his momentum.
However, Lucas also received some buffs as his already impressive mobility is now even better. Lucas also has improved specials, aerials, and ground attacks giving his a much more useful ground game, safer aerials, and more useful moves for his nuetral game.
It is currently unknown how much his buffs are going to compare to his nerfs and how he compares to his iterations in Brawl and Smash 4.
Classic Mode: Magic, Sacred Powers, and PSI!
All of Lucas' opponents are involved with magical abilities.
Role in World of Light
Although Lucas does not appear in the World of Light opening cutscene, he was vaporized and later imprisoned alongside the rest of the fighters (sans Kirby) when Galeem unleashed his beams of light.
