Spirit Train (汽車, Train) is a stage in Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS based on the Spirit Train that travels through New Hyrule in the Nintendo DS game The Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks.

Overview[edit]

The battle takes place upon the Spirit Train, which is constantly moving to the left during gameplay. Players who stand on the tracks behind the train get quickly left behind by the camera movement, similarly to the road in Big Blue. Anybody standing on the tracks in front of the train gets rammed by it, receiving damage and vertical knockback.

Characters can fight inside the carriage of the train. The roof of the carriage is a soft platform. The train is also towing another platform behind it. Birds will occasionally carry another aerial platform on-screen. Players can also stand on top of the train itself. The train is being driven by Link, in his Spirit Tracks appearance. He stands in the background, and does not interact with the fighters. However, if Link or Toon Link are fighting, Alfonzo will be conducting the train instead. In Local Wireless, neither of them appear, leaving the train with no conductor.

The rear carriage can be replaced during battle: the train backs to the right blast line, then pulls forward with a new rear carriage, which can come in several variations:

  • Basic Carriage
  • Broken Carriage: has a break in the middle, meaning players can accidentally land on the track rather than the platform
  • Multi-platform Carriage: has several platforms elevated above the carriage
  • Coal Carriage
  • House Carriage: has the Linebeck Trading Company on the carriage

Dark Trains and Armored Trains also appear on the stage. Armored Trains affect the train by ramming into it and pushing it towards the opposite blast line. Dark Trains may leap on the train (which can KO characters on top of it) and explode. The Dark Train may also dud once in a while, similar to a Smart Bomb. Players can additionally attack the Dark Train to detonate it.

Any item that touches the tracks immediately disappears, except the Soccer Ball, Sandbag and Smash Ball.

Ω Form[edit]

The Omega form replaces the train with a flat platform resembling the flatbed rail cars. The stage is set higher above ground so the tracks aren't seen.

Origin[edit]

The Spirit Train as it originally appeared in The Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks.

The Spirit Train first appeared in The Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks, where Link drives it around New Hyrule to reach various destinations. The Spirit Train's design is how it appears in Spirit Tracks with the Solid Passenger Car, which comes with the train engine itself, and different rear carriages that can appear on the stage, one of them being the Trusty Freight Truck add-on from Spirit Tracks. Dark Trains are enemy trains in Spirit Tracks that attack by pursuing the Spirit Train attempting to crash into it, causing an instant game over. The conductor Link wears his engineer outfit from Spirit Tracks.

Trophy Description[edit]

North America The Spirit Train from The Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks. You'll travel the lovely Forest Land as you fight, but be careful where you're standing—the last car can come uncoupled from time to time. You may see Linebeck III's shop, and Alfonzo drives if Link or Toon Link are busy fighting.
Europe The Spirit Train from The Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks takes you on a picturesque tour of the Forest Land while you, um...battle. Stay on your toes - the last car has a habit of decoupling and recoupling itself. Linebeck's shop also makes the odd appearance, and Alfonzo will drive the train if Link or Toon Link are busy with the brawl.
