The Sheriff universe (シェリフ, Sheriff) is a universe that is represented in Super Smash Bros. 4 by the Sheriff assist trophy. The franchise consists of two games, Sheriff and a simplified remake named Sheriff 2, both developed by Nintendo for arcades in 1979.

In Super Smash Bros. Melee[edit]

The titular Sheriff appears as a trophy.

Trophy information[edit]

Trophy in Melee.
Sheriff
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

In Super Smash Bros. 4[edit]

The Sheriff is an Assist Trophy in this game. When summoned, he will start shooting opponents with his gun and walk around the screen.

Trivia[edit]

  • Sheriff is the first major 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. This distinction would later be shared with Metal Gear, Electroplankton, Joy Mech Fight, and Custom Robo as those universes have had representation in Brawl (Though Custom Robo was first represented in Melee), had no content whatsoever in Super Smash Bros. 4, and would later have representation again in Ultimate.
    • However, Sheriff and Joy Mech Fight were only minor universes prior to being dropped and returning in the series.
  • 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 in the latter case).
  • It is one of the only three properties represented in Smash to debut in the '70s, the others being Color TV-Game and Galaxian.
