How to unlock
Complete one of the following:
With the exception of the third method, Villager must then be defeated on Smashville.
Changes from Super Smash Bros. 4
Villager received a mix of buffs and nerfs. One of Villager's biggest buffs was the changes with Pocket, which not only can store items indefinitely, but also allows Villager to act faster after pocketing an item. Villager's aerials have also mostly been buffed, with all of them having less landing lag, forward and backward aerials dealing higher knockback, and down aerial now spiking regardless of the number of turnips. However, most of Villager's tilts and smash attacks have been nerfed, with most of them having more ending lag and less knockback, and helium for Balloon Trip now takes longer to recharge, which worsens Villager's recovery and allows opponents to edgeguard much more easily.
Classic Mode: Mistake to Underestimate
Villager fights against characters who appear unsuited for battle, such as Isabelle and Wii Fit Trainer. This is likely a reference to the similar reason for Villager’s removal from Brawl.
Role in World of Light
The default male Villager was among the fighters that were summoned to fight against the army of Master Hands. He was also present when Galeem unleashed its beams of light. He is seen panicking alongside Duck Hunt and a composed Wii Fit Trainer. He was vaporized and placed under Galeem's imprisonment along with the rest of the fighters, excluding Kirby.
During the mode itself, the default male Villager can be unlocked early on shortly after rescuing Mario, where the player arrives at a crossroads and has the choice to rescue him, Marth or Sheik. If one of the others is rescued first, Villager's path will be blocked by a force field created by Master Hand, which will disappear upon defeating a boss or can be circumvented by looping back to the other side.
Villager's Fighter Spirits can be obtained by completing Classic Mode. They also available periodically for purchase in the shop for 500 coins. Unlocking Pit in World of Light allows the player to preview the first spirit below in the Spirit List under the name "???". As Fighter Spirits, they cannot be used in Spirit Battles and are purely aesthetic. Each Fighter Spirit has an alternate version that replaces them with their artwork in Ultimate.
