Tips are short blurbs of information that appear in both versions of Super Smash Bros. 4. These tips appear in two different locations - their own specialized menu in the Vault, or on the loading screens of the game. Some tips are shared between games, while others are not. A few contain incorrect information due to patches changing the game without updating any of the tips, even though tips were added.

If one gets a Milestone at the end of a match, a tip will display while the game is returning to the character select. Otherwise, tips will not display there.


The many tips in the game are categorized into different types.

  • amiibo tips focus on the use of amiibo.
  • Fighter tips mainly provide information about characters' special moves.
  • Stage tips give notes about stages.
  • Item tips document items, Pokémon, and Assist Trophies.
  • Mode tips provide notes about the various modes, including Smash Run and Smash Tour.
  • Smash Run tips focus on enemies encountered in Smash Run, as well as its other unique features. (3DS only)
  • Smash Tour tips focus on Smash Tour-exclusive features and gameplay. (Wii U only)
  • Original Games/Settings (Background Info in Europe) tips explain the origins of characters, their games, and other elements of the game. (Wii U only)
  • Other tips document game terminology and otherwise-unsorted notes.
