The titular Sheriff appears as a trophy.
- Sheriff is a game with a particularly long history, even among other classic Nintendo arcade games. You aimed the sheriff's gun by way of an eight-directional dial controller, which you would depress to fire. The goal of this frontier shooter was to protect the territory from various scoundrels and ne'er-do-wells.
- Japan Only
- This arcade game was released in 1979 in Japan. The game used an eight-direction joystick and a switch to control the title character. In Smash Bros., the sheriff will appear in his original glory and fire in eight directions. The bullets are tough to dodge, and they pack a serious punch.
- This arcade game was released in Europe in 1980. The game used an eight-direction joystick, and a switch to control the title character. In this game, the sheriff will appear in his original glory and fire in eight directions. The bullets are tough to dodge and will really knock your socks off.
- Sheriff (1980)
Sheriff: Reprises his role as an Assist Trophy in Ultimate, with little-to-no changes since Smash 4.
The Sheriff appears as a spirit.
- Sheriff is the first universe in the series to skip an installment, as it was represented in Super Smash Bros. Melee, had no representation whatsoever in Super Smash Bros. Brawl, and received representation again in Super Smash Bros. 4.
- Erroneously, the Sheriff trophy in Melee incorrectly says that the game was released only in Japan, though it was also released in Europe and the United States (under the name Bandido and with the credit for development falsely attributed to publisher Exidy, as was the standard in the industry at the time, in the latter case).
- Sheriff is one of the only three properties represented in Smash to debut in the 1970s, the others being Color TV-Game and Galaxian.
