The Mysterious Murasame Castle universe (謎の村雨城, The Mysterious Murasame Castle) refers to the characters, stages and property that come from the Famicom game of the same name.

Franchise description[edit]

The game was one of the early games released for the Family Computer Disk System, and the second original title after The Legend of Zelda. Originally, the game was a Japan-only release for the Famicom. The release of Koei Tecmo's Samurai Warriors 3 for the Wii allowed players to experience The Mysterious Murasame Castle for the first time outside of Japan, as Samurai Warriors 3 featured a 3D remake of the game as a separate mode. However, over 28 years after its release, the original game was re-released worldwide through Virtual Console on the Nintendo 3DS.

In Super Smash Bros. Melee[edit]

Although Melee lacked elements related to The Mysterious Murasame Castle, Sakurai stated that Takamaru was considered as a playable character during development, but stated that Takamaru’s chances of appearing as playable character in Melee were low.[1]

In Super Smash Bros. Brawl[edit]

The universe is represented by a music track and a single sticker.

In Super Smash Bros. 4[edit]

In Smash 4, the universe is represented by an Assist Trophy, a corresponding trophy, and a music track.

Assist Trophy[edit]

  • Takamaru: The main character of the universe, who attacks with his katana and Windmill Swords.



Elements from or in the Super Smash Bros. series[edit]

Takamaru is the protagonist of The Mysterious Murasame Castle. Like his appearance as an Assist Trophy, he wields a katana and shurikens. Douchuumen (Nazo no Murasamejo) is the title theme of The Mysterious Murasame Castle, and as the name indicates, The Mysterious Murasame Castle Medley is a medley of songs from the game.
