Mewtwo (ミュウツー, Mewtwo) is a playable character in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. It was confirmed on June 12th, 2018. Like in Melee, Mewtwo is once again an unlockable character. Mewtwo is classified as fighter #24.
Keiji Fujiwara reprises his role as Mewtwo in the game through reused voice clips from Smash 4.
Changes from Super Smash Bros. 4
Mewtwo received a mix of buffs and nerfs in the transition from Smash 4 to Ultimate. Some of its moves have improved range and hitbox placement, such as forward tilt, up tilt, back aerial, and forward aerial, and its throws are slightly stronger; however, Shadow Ball is smaller and weaker and it can no longer use Confusion to mix up its recovery.
Classic Mode: Psychic Control
Each round, through its psychic powers, Mewtwo controls previous opponents to use as teammates in future rounds; these teammates typically represent characters that have been possessed in their home series.
Note: Each round uses a track taken from the universe fought in the previous round. A different CPU teammate will appear in each round except the first: Lucas in round 2, Cloud in round 3, Ken in round 4, Richter in round 5, Pit in round 6, and Pikachu in the final round.
Role in World of Light
Mewtwo was among the fighters that were summoned to fight the army of Master Hands.
Mewtwo was present when Galeem unleashed his beams of light. Mewtwo and Zelda attempted to reflect the beams using Confusion and Nayru's Love respectively; this effort failed, with both being vaporized and placed under Galeem's imprisonment, along with the rest of the fighters (excluding Kirby).
