Spring Man (スプリングマン , Spring Man) is a character from the ARMS universe. He is one of the playable fighters in ARMS.

Origin[edit]

Spring Man fighting Ribbon Girl at Spring Stadium in ARMS.

Spring Man is one of the playable fighters in ARMS. He was one of the first characters revealed for the game and is its mascot. As his name implies, his design is themed around springs, such as his ARMS being extendable springs and his stadium. Spring Man is the newest contestant to join the ARMS Grand Prix, which he dreams to be the champion of. In the ARMS world, this Spring Man is the third fighter to earn the title in sponsorship with the Spring Gym, and his eldest predecessor appears in the graphic novel series.

The Toaster ARM.

The Toaster ARM is a basic ARM in ARMS, and is one of Spring Man's default ARMS. It functions as a standard boxing glove, but gains Fire properties when charged.

Rush is a mechanic in ARMS which allows a fighter to unleash rapid punches to deal large amounts of damage. In order to use a Rush, a fighter must first fill their Rush Gauge, which can be done through various means, primarily by dealing damage.

In Super Smash Bros. Ultimate[edit]

As an Assist Trophy[edit]

Spring Man jumps and dashes around the stage while using his stretchy arms to punch, punch, punch—just like he does in the ARMS game. In a pinch, he can unleash his powerful rush attack to pummel the opponent!

Spring Man is an Assist Trophy in Ultimate. He attacks his opponents using the Toaster ARMS, and has large range. One of his attacks is a Rush, a flurry of punches which can potentially KO opponents. He is also one of several Assist Trophies with the ability to air dodge, which has a similar animation to his aerial dash that can be used to evade attacks in ARMS. He can be KO'd to earn a point. He uses recycled voice clips from ARMS as well.

As a costume[edit]

He is also the basis for a costume for Mii Brawlers. He is also a spirit battle in World of Light, where he is fought as a Mii Brawler with the Spring Man outfit equipped. The Brawler has increased punch and elbow strike power, as well as increased jump power.

Spirit[edit]

Spring Man’s spirit is an Ace Neutral spirit. When equipped, the player gets increased fist attack strength.
