Richter (リヒター, Richter) is a playable character in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. He was announced as a newcomer alongside Simon, Chrom, Dark Samus, and King K. Rool during a Nintendo Direct on August 8th, 2018. He is an Echo Fighter of Simon. Richter is classified as fighter #66ε.
David Vincent, Richter's voice actor from Portrait of Ruin, The Dracula X Chronicles, and Harmony of Despair, reprised his role as Richter in English versions of the game, initially confirmed on Twitter.
How to unlock
Complete one of the following:
With the exception of the third method, Richter must then be defeated on Dracula's Castle.
Differences from Simon
As with some Echo Fighters, Richter is virtually identical in function to his counterpart, down to his attributes such as walk and run speed, knockback angles, damage numbers, and sweetspots on his weapon, the Vampire Killer. As a result, he is essentially a cosmetic choice for players who prefer either of the Castlevania representatives.
Classic Mode: Smash Echoes
Both the English and Japanese names refer to Echo Fighters, which make up all of Richter's opponents of this route.
Role in World of Light
Although Richter does not appear in the World of Light opening cutscene, he was vaporized and later imprisoned alongside the rest of the fighters (sans Kirby) when Galeem unleashed his beams of light.
