The Nintendo Wars universe (ファミコンウォーズ, Famicom Wars) is a series of turn-based tactical video games. Originally Japan-only as Famicom Wars, Super Famicom Wars and Game Boy Wars; Advance Wars, the first game to be released internationally, was developed for the Game Boy Advance by Intelligent Systems and published by Nintendo in North America in 2001 and Europe in 2002; with subsequent international releases following for the GBA and Nintendo DS.

In Super Smash Bros. Brawl[edit]

Assist Trophy[edit]

The Infantry and Tanks are an Assist Trophy in Brawl, using their original sprites from the Advance Wars games. Soldiers and tanks will drop from the sky, causing minimal damage, and they will then travel left or right. The Infantry will fire their guns, while the tanks will blast from their turrets, both inflicting fair knockback.

Infantry & Tanks

Units first introduced in Famicom Wars, where they fight battles against enemy forces. Infantry are the least expensive to deploy of all units. They're not too strong, but they move well and can capture property. There are two tank types: tank A, which is expensive but has good mobility and firepower, and tank B, which is cheaper but can change battles with sheer numbers.

Infantry & Tanks

Ntsc Two units from the Advance Wars series, infantry are best for capturing bases and tanks for fighting the enemy. If summoned, these two form up on the player who activated them. Don't underestimate them just 'cause they're pixels—the infantry's gun and tank's cannon are formidable.
Pal Two units from Famicom wars. In this game, they'll appear in pixel form on both sides of the character that called them up. The infantry then fire their guns while the tanks use cannon fire and drive into people. Cute as they are, don't underestimate them or you'll find yourself in a world of hurt!

In Super Smash Bros. Ultimate[edit]

The Infantry & Tanks do not reprise their roles as an Assist Trophy, but do appear as a spirit, in addition to Andy, Eagle, and Olaf from the Advance Wars series.
