Super Smash Bros. Ultimate[edit]

In Ultimate, there are no unlockable stages, as all 103 non-DLC stages are available from the start.


  • Out of the first four installments (up to Smash 4) in the series, Super Smash Bros. Melee is the only one where there are placeholders for unlockable stages. Despite having 11 unlockable stages, there are 5 "?" marked boxes for unlockable stages. The 5 "?" marked boxes on Melee's stage selection screen represents the unlockables that were introduced in said game (with the exception of Flat Zone, past stages, and Super Smash Bros. universe stages which didn't have placeholders).
  • Up to Smash 4 (not Ultimate as all non DLC stages are available from the start), the Wii U version of Smash 4 is the only installment where playing VS. Mode matches does not unlock an unlockable stage. All unlockable stages have an unlock criterion which require no VS. Mode matches to unlock them.
