The Nintendo DS universe refers to the Super Smash Bros. series' collection of stages and properties that hail from the default software on Nintendo's Nintendo DS handheld video game system.

In Super Smash Bros. Brawl[edit]

The Nintendo DS is recognized as its own universe by Super Smash Bros. Brawl.

    PictoChat: Based off of the PictoChat software built into every Nintendo DS, this stage evokes the whimsical doodling element of the software. While it is, at its base form, a completely flat stage, scenery and new elements are quickly drawn onto the stage and then erased and replaced as quickly as they appear, creating an ever changing battlefield.


  • PictoChat: An original composition featuring Nintendo DS and Wii menu sound effects.

In Super Smash Bros. 4[edit]

The Nintendo DS universe makes a return in Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS. While the original PictoChat stage does not appear, it is replaced by a similar, updated version.

Returning Tracks[edit]


  • If the Game Boy Color is counted as the same console as the original Game Boy, the Nintendo DS is the only Nintendo system to be the console of origin for only one playable character.
