Masterpieces (名作トライアル, Masterpiece Trial) are free time-limited trial versions of classic Nintendo titles which the characters of Super Smash Bros. Brawl and Super Smash Bros. for Wii U have appeared in. The full versions can be purchased for the Virtual Console. To save the player time, Masterpieces skip the title and opening of a game. Certain Masterpieces start at specific points of the game that are relevant to the Smash game they appear in, such as the Donkey Kong Masterpiece starting at the 75m level, while games that supported saving have some built-in saves set to various points of the game. The time limit varies from game to game.

In Super Smash Bros. Brawl[edit]

A total of 14 Masterpieces are featured in this game (12 outside of Japan).

List of Masterpieces[edit]

Masterpieces are sorted in-game by their Japanese release date, even in international versions of Brawl. Unlockable Masterpieces are highlighted yellow.

NES games show up as FC and SNES games show up as SFC in the Japanese version of Brawl, except for two cases noted below where a NES game shows up as FDS instead.

Scrapped Masterpieces[edit]

In Super Smash Bros. for Wii U[edit]

Masterpieces return in Super Smash Bros. for Wii U. New features include a timer displayed on the right side of the screen, the ability to buy a Masterpiece directly from the game without having to access the Nintendo eShop, the ability to pause the Masterpiece without using the HOME button, and the ability to stop the Masterpiece without the reset button, as the Wii U does not have a reset button. There is also less lag than there was in Brawl. A total of 24 Masterpieces are featured in this game (23 outside of Japan), 15 of which are new.

List of Masterpieces[edit]

Masterpieces are now sorted in-game by localized release date, so Japanese, North American, and European versions list them in a different order. For example, non-Japanese versions of the game list the release date of Super Mario Bros.: The Lost Levels as 1993 (the year the SNES Super Mario All-Stars made the levels first accessible outside of Japan), and European versions of the game list the release date of EarthBound as 2013 (the year it became available on the eShop). In the list below, they are ordered by North American release date (except for Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon and the Blade of Light).

As above, NES games show up as FC and SNES games show up as SFC in the Japanese version of the game, except for the noted cases where a NES game shows up as FDS instead. Unlockable Masterpieces are highlighted yellow.

Scrapped Masterpieces[edit]

  • Unused text in Smash Wii U implies the original Super Smash Bros. was supposed to appear as a Masterpiece. This would have made it the only N64 Masterpiece in Smash Wii U; however, at the time of Smash Wii U's release, N64 emulation wasn't possible on the Wii U, likely resulting in the Masterpiece being scrapped.
