The Original Heavyweights is the first single-player event match in Super Smash Bros. for Wii U. In it, Mario must defeat the two heaviest characters in the game, Bowser and Donkey Kong. Clearing this event unlocks Kongo Jungle 64.


This event is available from the start. Completing the event unlocks the Kongo Jungle 64 stage on the challenge board, as well as the right, down, and left paths. Once both the event is completed and Falco is unlocked, the up path is unlocked.

Completing the event without taking any damage awards a Fire Flower Overalls equipment.


  • The music used in this event, Airship Theme (Super Mario Bros. 3), normally plays on Luigi's Mansion, rather than Mario Galaxy.
  • This event seems to mimic the Trouble King events from Melee and Brawl. Trouble King from Melee and Two Trouble Kings from Brawl both feature Mario as the assigned character (though Luigi is assigned in Trouble King 2 and Player 2 plays as Kirby in the co-op version of Two Trouble Kings), both events are the first event in their respective games, and all three events feature Bowser as one of the enemies (the only one in both events from Melee). Like the Trouble King events, this event is the first event available and has Mario as the assigned character and Bowser as an opponent.
  • This is the only event that opens up more than two paths.
