Mythra (ヒカリ, Hikari) is a playable character in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. She was confirmed as a playable character alongside Pyra during the February 17th, 2021 Nintendo Direct, and is scheduled for release in March 2021 as part of Fighters Pass Vol. 2. A character showcase is scheduled for March 4th, 2021 (March 5th, 2021 in some time zones). Mythra is classified as Fighter #80.
Skye Bennett reprises her role as Mythra in English, while Shino Shimoji reprises her role in Japanese.
Role in World of Light
Despite their status as downloadable content, Pyra and Mythra do have a legitimate role in World of Light, as the latter appears in the base game as a spirit in the Final Battle, meaning that she was vaporized by Galeem. The Mythra spirit is called as reinforcements by Galeem and is placed directly in front of Palutena, making her an obligatory fight to achieve the true ending. Defeating this spirit does not unlock her and Pyra as a playable character; rather, they are unlocked after downloading them and defeating at least 10 other fighters from Galeem's control, just like other DLC characters.
Mythra's fighter spirit can be obtained by completing Classic Mode. It is also available periodically for purchase in the shop for 500 coins, but only after she has been downloaded. Unlocking her in World of Light allows the player to preview the second spirit below in the Spirit List under the name .
Additionally, Mythra has a support spirit as part of Ultimate's base game.
