Changes from Super Smash Bros. 4
Classic Mode: Another Planet, Another Bounty
Character unlock tree
Samus' Classic Mode character unlock tree includes the following characters in order:
Each character can be unlocked by clearing Samus' Classic Mode, or the Classic Mode of any preceding character, if all preceding characters have been unlocked. Once all the above characters are unlocked, clearing Classic Mode with any of them will default to Mario's character unlock tree, starting with Sonic.
Role in World of Light
Samus was among the fighters summoned to the cliffside to fight an army of Master Hands.
During the opening cutscene, Samus was present when Galeem unleashed his beams of light. Samus attempted to fight back against the beams by shooting them with her arm cannon, but to no avail. Samus was vaporized and placed under Galeem's imprisonment alongside the rest of the fighters (except for Kirby).
In gameplay, the playable Zero Suit Samus, as well as other Spirit versions of Samus such as the Gravity Suit and Fusion Suit, are separate spirits from the original Samus; however, the story significance of this is unknown, as Samus and Zero Suit Samus never appear together in cutscenes, and are seen transforming into each other outside of World of Light.
Samus is later seen among several other fighters, making their last stand against Galeem and Dharkon. She also shows up in the bad ending where Galeem emerges victorious against Dharkon, witnessing Galeem engulf the world in light.
