Virtua Fighter (バーチャファイター, Virtua Fighter) is Sega's long-running series of fighting games, notable for inventing the 3D fighting game.

In Super Smash Bros. Brawl[edit]

Though Virtua Fighter is never directly referred to within this game, Sonic's jab is based off the ubiquitous Sega punch-punch-kick jab combo from the series.[1]

In Super Smash Bros. 4[edit]

Virtua Fighter is represented in this game by downloadable content costumes for Mii Brawlers based on Akira Yuki, the main protagonist of the series, as he appears in the first Virtua Fighter game, and Jacky Bryant as he appears in the fifth game.

In Super Smash Bros. Ultimate[edit]

In Ultimate, Akira appears as an Assist Trophy, still in his original polygonal model from the first game, with recycled voice clips from Virtua Fighter 4.

Mii Costumes[edit]
