The Records menu is a sub-menu under the Data section that appears in every Smash Bros game so far, enabling the player to view information about various aspects of certain characters, such as total KOs and the total time that they were used.
In Super Smash Bros., only records from VS mode are stored in the data; unlike later games, other records are not recorded.
In the first screen of the VS Records screen, the player is given a character to character comparison sheet, showing how many KO's each character has gotten against every other character. The chart is read from the left - in other words, the number indicates how many times the character on the left has KO'd the character on the right. (i.e. In the picture below, Pikachu has knocked out Ness a total of four times, and it has attained 5 KOs in the total course of the game.) In terms of both rows and columns, the characters are ordered based upon their total KO count.
On this screen, the player is able to analyse various statistics for each character in a table (Again, sorted by number of KO's). These are:
This final screen lists various ranks about individual characters, in effect being a combination of the previous two screens, instead comparing individual characters. Damage received and dealt, however, is only shown on this screen.
The first screen is identical to that in 64, displaying how many KO's each character has landed on every other character.
On the second page, individual statistics are given for each character separately, while the third page displays the top 5 characters for each statistic. These are:
This page lists all the bonuses the player has obtained, in addition to its points value, and its description.
This final page displays stats about the game as a whole in a table format. They are as follows:
Once again, the first page is a comparison of KO's given character-to-character. The top four rows are highlighted in red, orange, green and blue, respectively.
The second, third and fourth page all focus on the same statistics - the second shows the top 5 characters in each stat, whilst the third and fourth show individual stats, by character on the third page, and by player name on the fourth. The stats (With their given, in game description) are as follows:
The final page is almost identical to the Misc. Records in Melee, showing statistics on the game itself.
Main article: Notice#Super Smash Bros. Brawl
This page shows all of the viewed notices, and the date and time they were shown.
Unlike previous games in the series, there is no character-to-character KO comparison chart. Character statistics are now presented in the form of a vertical bar graph. There are options to select a specific player name, or to keep the focus on a specific character when changing categories.
The first three pages focus on the same statistics - the first one covers all matches, the second one includes offline matches only, and the third one includes online matches only. The stats are as follows:
Exclusive to the 3DS version is a fourth page, which presents statistics relating to the Smash Run mode exclusively. The stats are as follows:
Despite the change in name, they are functionally identical to "notices".
Main article: Notice#Super Smash Bros. Ultimate
Like in previous games, this page shows all of the viewed milestones, and the date and time they were shown.
In Ultimate character statistics are shown on a horizontal bar graph. Players have the option to view records for either Offline & Battle Arenas, or Online. Offline & Battle Arenas data can further be categorized with Spirits on, Spirits off, or both.
The stats are as follows:
There is one additional statistic available only when viewing Online Battle Data:
This page allows players to view the Smash Tags that have been claimed while fighting online or local wireless. Tags can be sorted based on order obtained, number of wins, tags set to favorite, and by friends. Tags can also be sold.
This gives players a list of opponents fought while battling online.
