The Miiverse universe refers to the Super Smash Bros. series' collection of properties originating from the Miiverse social network.

Franchise description[edit]

Miiverse originated as an application for the Wii U in 2012 alongside the console's launch. Users used the application to make for-fun posts, report posts and comments, and follow and befriend other users. It was later made available on the Nintendo 3DS and web browsers in 2013, with largely similar features, and was discontinued in 2017.

In Super Smash Bros. for Wii U[edit]

The Miiverse universe is represented by a single stage in Super Smash Bros. for Wii U.

Stage[edit]

  • MiiverseIconSSB4-U.png
    Miiverse: A stage similar in layout to Battlefield, with a single large platform and three small, soft platforms. However, posts from Miiverse will appear in the background based on the fighters in the match.

Elements from or in the Super Smash Bros. series[edit]

The Miiverse stage's green and white color scheme resembles the interface and color scheme of the social network. In addition, the concept of player-made drawings appearing on the stage is based on - and made possible by - the ability to post drawings or handwritten text on Miiverse using the GamePad or 3DS bottom screen.

Miiverse also featured several communities for Smash 4, including those for photo contests, in which users could submit images of the Photo Studio which match a certain theme. It also used to have a community representing the entire Super Smash Bros. series.

Trivia[edit]

  • Miiverse is the newest major universe (represented by a character, stage, item, or Assist Trophy) to be represented in Super Smash Bros. for Wii U (As well as Super Smash Bros. 4, in general), with an initial date of November 2012.
  • Miiverse is the only universe with a series symbol in the series to receive no representation at all in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. This is most likely because of the discontinuation of the Miiverse service in November 2017, and the fact that it was never available on the Nintendo Switch.
