Attributes[edit]

Wii Fit Trainer was greatly improved from Smash 4, with significant upgrades to the character's strengths such as damage output, ground mobility, and projectiles. Her most infamous buff was that of Deep Breathing, which now provides a wide variety of temporary stat increases rather than just a few. On the flipside, the character's glaring flaws are still present in Ultimate, albeit to a lesser degree. Wii Fit Trainer still struggles against small characters due to blindspots on key moves, and can find it difficult to approach other projectile-heavy characters. She was also given a few small nerfs, such as a shorter recovery distance with Super Hoop.

Wii Fit Trainer excels in both long range and close-quarters combat due to her dependable projectiles and hard hitting normals, but struggles at mid range as a result of her lack of range on her tilts and aerials. As such, the character may sometimes have trouble approaching, and typically relies on Header to do so. Wii Fit Trainer has some of the most punishing combos in the game when it comes to damage, but actually landing that first hit can prove to be quite difficult in many situations.

Wii Fit Trainer notably excels both offstage and on the ledge. While neither of these areas are where she wants to be necessarily, she has several tools that give her more options than the average character in these scenarios. The most important of these tools is Header, which can be used to cover Wii Fit Trainer's recovery and getup from ledge, as well as air stall. Due to the character's below average air and fall speed (without Deep Breathing), she can sometimes struggle to land safely.

Her grab game is serviceable, with both down throw and up throw offering some combo potential at low and mid percents. However, Wii Fit Trainer lacks a solid kill throw; back throw as her strongest kill throw typically doesn't KO until well past 140%. This can be remedied somewhat with Deep Breathing.

Wii Fit Trainer's smash attacks are all rather volatile, as they possess high risk for high reward. All three moves are far above average in strength, especially up smash, which is one of the strongest up smashes in the game even without Deep Breathing when the sweetspot connects. However, these moves also come with the downside of large amounts of ending lag, making them extremely punishable when missed. As a result, Wii Fit Trainer can sometimes have trouble taking stocks, as most of her other KO moves have some sort of inconsistency, such as Forward tilt and Back air's poor hitboxes.

Due to her unorthodox moveset, relatively steep learning curve, and lack of the mass appeal that many Smash Bros. characters possess, Wii Fit Trainer has a fairly small playerbase, although she has received much more attention than in Smash 4 since her overall viability has been greatly improved. It remains to be seen how she will fair in the long run of Ultimate's competitive scene.

Changes from Super Smash Bros. 4[edit]

Wii Fit Trainer has been significantly buffed from Smash 4 to Ultimate. She has received various improvements to her hitbox durations, hitbox placements, overall lag, mobility, projectiles, and damage output, making Wii Fit Trainer's moveset function more effectively overall.

Many of her notoriously inconsistent attacks have been improved: forward and up tilt both last longer, with the latter having intangibility on the arms and reaching farther upward than before, making it better for contesting aerials. Up tilt, dash attack, forward smash, down smash and forward aerial have lower ending lag, while up smash has a larger sourspot, making it less likely to whiff. Many of the trainer's aerials' hitboxes have been improved so they connect more consistently, including forward aerial (which now has a small but useful body hitbox) and down aerial (whose large sourspot now comes out sooner and lasts longer). In addition, dash attack and down tilt deal more damage, up and down throws both function as reliable combo throws, and neutral attack's finisher buries much more consistently. All these changes greatly improve the trainer's damage racking potential, while making it less likely for her moves to whiff.

Wii Fit Trainer's special moveset has also been buffed: Sun Salutation deals more damage and knockback when fully charged and can be canceled with a jump, much like other storable charge moves. Header functions significantly better as a projectile, as the ball is bigger, deals more damage, bounces faster and lower, has more variable angles if headbutted, and almost always keeps its hitbox while active, making ball setups significantly more viable. Super Hoop now deals multiple hits, which improves its damage if all hits land. Finally, Deep Breathing has been dramatically improved: it can be activated more easily and faster, has a lower recharge penalty if failed, and lasts significantly longer. It also grants faster fall speed, gravity, air speed, traction, initial dash speed and dash speed. This overall mobility increase, coupled with both Deep Breathing's x1.25 damage increase and Wii Fit Trainer's already hard hitting attacks, allows her to put out significant damage output during even a single Deep Breathing use, heavily improving its utility.

Finally, Wii Fit Trainer benefits from the game's universal changes. The standardized 3-frame jumpsquat allows her to use aerials more effectively, while the slower shield drop speed improves the safety of her projectiles and certain attacks such as down tilt. The limit to a single air dodge allows her projectiles to cover options better and catch landings with her high mobility, while the ability to cancel ground moves improves her ground game.

The nerfs Wii Fit Trainer received are relatively minor: Super Hoop has a shorter max distance, making her recovery slightly less flexible, the back hit of forward tilt has less horizontal range, Neutral aerial links into its second hit less consistently, and Neutral attack's second hit can now make opponents trip or even slide out of the Neutral attack combo, causing the third hit's bury to miss. However, most of her weaknesses are recurring ones from Smash 4: while Wii Fit Trainer's overall moveset has been heavily improved, her neutral game is still lacking, due to the trainer's lack of midrange options alongside very few ways to escape pressure, deal with projectiles, or get back onstage. This is further harmed by the nerfs to dodging and dodge intangibility, making her relatively easy to juggle or trap on the ledge. Due to this, her disadvantage state is still extremely lackluster. Short characters such as Olimar and Pichu are also still a struggle to deal with due to blindspots on key moves such as forward tilt.

Overall, Wii Fit Trainer now properly functions as a unique, projectile-based bait-and-punish character who relies on her unorthodox setups and options to pressure the opponent into making poor decisions, and then using her speed and massive damage output to capitalize. While she is capable of racking up damage extremely quickly, her weaknesses in approaching and landing consistent hits remain, making it important for her to keep opponents from rushing her down or camping her out. As a result of all of these changes, Wii Fit Trainer has had surprising success in the early metagame, with several notable players such as WaDi, BestNess, and varun using him/her as a main or secondary at high-level tournaments with respectable results, in contrast to the trainer's low success in Smash 4. However, as the character has a relatively small playerbase, it is unknown how well Wii Fit Trainer will fare in the long run.

Aesthetics[edit]

    • Buff Up tilt has intangibility on the arm for 10 frames (frames 3-12).
    • Buff Up tilt has a hitbox behind Wii Fit Trainer that sends the opponent away at a 75° angle rather than straight up. This hit also has higher base knockback (40 → 60) and lower knockback growth (70 → 50) than the main hit.
    • Buff Up tilt has a significantly longer duration (frames 5-7 → 5-12).
    • Buff Up tilt has less ending lag (FAF 35 → 30).

  • Buff All aerials have less landing lag (Neutral: 14 frames → 8, Forward: 15 → 9, Back: 20 → 12, Up: 15 → 9, Down: 20 → 12).
  • Neutral aerial:
    • Nerf The first hit of neutral aerial links into the second hit less consistently.
    • Buff The first hit of neutral aerial has an extra hitbox on the arms.
  • Forward aerial:
    • Buff Forward aerial has less ending lag (FAF 46 → 39).
    • Buff Forward aerial's spike hitbox has slightly more base knockback (10 → 15) and knockback growth (62 → 68).
    • Buff Forward aerial has a hitbox near the center of Wii Fit Trainer's body on frame 9, remedying its blindspot issues.
  • Down aerial:
    • Buff Down aerial has less startup lag (frame 20 → 15) with identical ending lag, shortening its total duration (FAF 45 → 40).
    • Buff Down aerial's spike hitbox now covers Wii Fit Trainer's entire lower body rather than just her feet.
    • Buff Down aerial's spike hitbox has a longer duration (2 frames → 3), consequently increasing the move's total duration as well (5 frames → 6).
    • Buff Down aerial auto-cancels earlier (frame 40 → 35).

Throws/other attacks[edit]

  • Buff Standing grab extends further (Z2 offset: 7.7 → 8.2), slightly improving its range.
  • Buff Dash grab extends considerably further (Z2 offset: 8.7 → 9.9), noticeably improving its range.
  • Nerf Pivot grab doesn't extend as far (Z2 offset: -14.7 → -14), reducing its range which combined with the universal reduction of the widths of grabboxes on aerial opponents drastically reduces its utility.
  • Change Pummel is faster but deals less damage (3% → 1.3%).
  • Up throw:
    • Buff Up throw has lower base knockback (80 → 40) and higher knockback growth (50 → 80), as well as a slightly less vertical launch angle (85° → 80°). These changes make up throw a much better combo tool.
  • Down throw:
    • Buff Down throw has less ending lag (FAF 57 → 50), making it a better combo starter.

Special Moves[edit]

  • Nerf The introduction of the 1v1 multiplier hinders Wii Fit Trainer's ability to heal herself, as recovered damage is not increased by the multiplier.
  • Sun Salutation:
    • Change Sun Salutation is orange in color instead of bright yellow.
    • Buff Sun Salutation deals more damage when fully charged (18% → 21%).
    • Buff Charging Sun Salutation can be canceled with a jump.
  • Header:
    • Buff Header's soccer ball is around 50% bigger.
    • Buff The soccer ball deals more damage on average. The damage dealt varies based on the move the ball was hit with, but also seems to differ slightly depending on how long the ball has been out.
    • Buff The ball has much higher gravity (0.4 → 0.8).
    • Buff The ball travels more quickly when headed (2.8 → 3.5).
    • Change The ball has a higher vertical air speed during Header's startup (1.5 → 1.6).
    • Buff Header has significantly less ending lag (FAF 59-75 → 41-57).
    • Buff Header has less landing lag (14 frames → 9).
    • Buff Header offers a larger range of motion when hitting the ball both with a second input (10° min → 13°) and without (-7.7° max → -22°).
    • Buff Header's spike hitbox is larger (5 clean → 5.7, 3 late → 4).
  • Super Hoop:
    • Buff Super Hoop's base vertical speed is higher (0.75 → 0.88).
    • Buff The speed added to Super Hoop with every input is higher (0.2 → 0.25).
    • Nerf The interval between mash inputs registering is longer (6 frames → 11).
    • Change Super Hoop is now a multihit move that can hit up to three times, increasing its maximum damage output (5% → 15%) but reducing its gimp potential.
    • Nerf Super Hoop's overall vertical distance has been reduced significantly. It is not possible to travel as far as in Smash 4, even after reaching the maximum amount of button-mashing or rhythmic tapping possible.
  • Deep Breathing:
    • Buff A fresh Deep Breathing can be performed more quickly (frame 48 → 38).
    • Buff There is a wider window for a stale Deep Breathing to successfully activate (16 frames → 32).
    • Buff Deep Breathing's ending lag has been reduced when activating it on the ground (31 frames → 24).
    • Buff Deep Breathing's effect lasts longer both when fresh (552 frames → 732) and stale (360 frames → ~530).
    • Buff Successfully using Deep Breathing improves many more attributes.
      • Buff Air speed: x1.17 ~ x1.2
      • Buff Fall speed: x1.17 ~ x1.2
      • Buff Gravity: x1.17 ~ x1.2
      • Buff Initial dash speed: x1.1 ~ x1.13
      • Buff Run speed: x1.1 ~ x1.13
      • Buff Ground traction x1.1 ~ x1.13
    • Buff Successfully using Deep Breathing gives a larger damage output buff (x1.16 ~ x1.2 → x1.2 ~ x1.25).
    • Buff Deep Breathing has a much shorter refresh time (3600 frames → 2400).
  • Wii Fit:
    • Nerf Wii Fit's silhouettes have a limited travel distance. This trait is shared with Final Edge.
    • Buff Wii Fit launches a large, slow-moving Dancer pose image at the end of the move. This image has KO potential, increasing the Final Smash's overall reliability.
    • Nerf Wii Fit can no longer be enhanced by Deep Breathing.

Update History[edit]

While Update 1.1.0 offered a few small buffs, Update 3.0.0 improved Wii Fit Trainer greatly both by making neutral attack a much more consistent option and increasing the power of Deep Breathing, which was already one of Wii Fit Trainer's most powerful moves to begin with. In addition, Update 3.1.0 improved neutral attack's consistency further and opened up new jablock options, allowing for greater capitalization in certain scenarios.

Wii Fit Trainer has seen very few nerfs thus far aside from the universal projectile nerf in 3.0.0. Header's ability to phase the soccer ball through stages was removed in 3.0.0, which was likely intended to be more of a bug fix than a direct nerf. Header received a hidden change in 3.0.0 as well, as it was altered to send the ball at a less steep angle, making it less useful at close and mid ranges as well as during recovery.

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate 1.1.0

  • Buff Dash attack has less ending lag (FAF 43 → 39).
  • Buff Header's soccer ball travels more quickly when headed (2.8 → 3.5).

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate 3.0.0

  • Buff Neutral attack's finisher has more bury range.
  • Nerf Sun Salutation deals less shield damage (-2.5).
  • Nerf Header's soccer ball deals less shield damage (-2.5).
  • Bug fix The interaction of Header's soccer ball with stage collision was fixed, removing several setups and making Header use from ledge less consistent. However, this in turn created a new tech known as Header Getup. [1]
  • Nerf The soccer ball has a higher vertical air speed during Header's startup (1.5 → 1.6) ultimately leading to Header yielding more shallow angles.
  • Buff Deep Breathing's effect lasts longer both when fresh (552 frames → 732) and stale (360 frames → ~530).

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate 3.1.0

  • Buff Neutral attack 1 connects into neutral attack 2 more reliably.

Moveset[edit]

  • Wii Fit Trainer can increase overall damage output by x1.25 with Deep Breathing, consequently affecting knockback as well. The following moveset list details the properties of all attacks when Deep Breathing has not been used.
  • Wii Fit Trainer can crawl and wall jump. Notably, Wii Fit Trainer's crawl is one of the lowest in the game, alongside that of Snake.

For a gallery of Wii Fit Trainer's hitboxes, see here.

Note: All numbers are listed as base damage, without the 1v1 multiplier.

  Name Damage Description
Neutral attack Lunge 2% Performs a Sideways Leg Lift, Single Leg Twist, and Lunge to attack with an outstretched arm, knee strike, and kneeling stomp, respectively. The first hit also has a rear hitbox on Wii Fit Trainer's leg. The third hit is able to bury grounded opponents, which can easily follow up into a tilt attack or a smash attack. However, Wii Fit Trainer can also wait for the opponent to wriggle out of being buried and catch them with an aerial attack. The first two attacks are able to jablock, and the second hit has a chance to trip the opponent.
2%
3%
Forward tilt Dancer 11% Assumes the Dancer pose to simultaneously perform a knifehand thrust in front and a scorpion kick in back. As a result, it is useful for punishing rolling opponents. It does not move the user at all on use, which can make it difficult to land. Both of Wii Fit Trainer's limbs have differing traits: the arm launches the opponent horizontally, whereas the leg launches them vertically. The arm KOs middleweights at 144% while near the edge, whereas the leg KOs them at 155%.
Up tilt Triangle 10% Assumes the Triangle pose to attack with an outstretched arm. The hitbox covers Wii Fit Trainer's arm and body while stepping backward to assume triangle pose. The rising arm is intangible. The arm hitbox launches the opponent straight up and is reliable for combos, particularly into itself and up smash, or as a follow-up from a short hopped up aerial. The body hitbox sends the opponent away at a diagonal angle.
Down tilt Bridge 13.5% Assumes the Bridge pose to attack with both knees. It has fairly quick start-up and deals both respectable damage and high hitstun, but lacks knockback for its power and has high ending lag. Useful for retaliating after dodging with a notable low crouch, hitting opponents on the ledge, or applying relatively safe shield pressure due to the pushback the move has.
Dash attack Gate 10% (early), 6% (late) Assumes the Gate pose while sliding to attack with an arcing arm. It has a respectable duration, which makes it useful for mindgames when used alongside a fox-trot. However, it is punishable on shield.
Forward smash Warrior 15.5% (arms), 14% (body) Assumes the Warrior pose to attack with outstretched arms on both sides. Strikes in both directions. Its considerable start-up and ending lag make it very punishable. Wii Fit Trainer lunges forward at a moderate distance, giving it deceptive range. Great power, as the uncharged forward smash KOs Mario around 78% at the edge of Final Destination.
Up smash Tree 18%/15% (clean, hands/arms), 11%/8% (late, hands/arms) Assumes the Tree pose to attack with outstretched, clasped hands. Hits around Wii Fit Trainer with a weaker body hitbox. It has good vertical range and it grants intangibility from start-up, making it useful for aerial protection. The uncharged body hitbox KOs Mario around 103% off the top of Final Destination, and the uncharged early hands KOs Mario at 90%, so it's one of the strongest up smashes in the game if sweetspotted.
Down smash Arm & Leg Lift 12% (arm/leg), 10% (body) Performs an Arm & Leg Lift to attack with an outstretched arm and outstretched leg. It is a very strong semi-spike. The uncharged down smash KOs Mario around 86% at the edge of Final Destination, and it's low trajectory launch angle result in KOs at lower percentages against characters with poor recovery.
Neutral aerial Jackknife 5% (hit 1), 9% (hit 2) Assumes the Jackknife pose to attack with both arms and legs. It deals impressive damage when both of its hits connect, connects much easier compared to most attacks thanks to its fairly large hitbox, has minimal ending and landing lag and autocancels in a short hop. Altogether, these traits make it a very useful combo starter when SHFF'd, and is Wii Fit Trainer’s overall best combo starter.
Forward aerial Single-Leg Extension 12%/10% (clean, arm/leg), 7.5%/6% (late, arm/leg) Performs a Single-Leg Extension to attack with an outstretched arm and outstretched leg. Due to its hitbox placements, it can hit opponents in front of and/or behind, but can be awkward to connect with due to its small hitboxes, and the front hit only hits in above and front of Wii Fit Trainer. Wii Fit Trainer's foot hitbox can meteor smash when clean, and thanks to it coming out on frame 9 like the arm hitbox, autocanceling in a short hop fast fall and having below average ending lag, it is among the fastest meteor smashes in the game.
Back aerial Cobra 13.5% (clean feet), 11% (clean legs), 9% (clean body), 6% (late) Assumes the Cobra pose to perform a double-footed back kick. It comes out on frame 5, making it Wii Fit Trainer's fastest aerial, and a fast attack in general. When coupled with its high knockback growth, its clean feet hitbox enables it to KO Mario at 91% while near the edge of Final Destination. It's her only aerial that can't autocancel in a short hop.
Up aerial Half-Moon 10% Assumes the Half-Moon pose to attack with outstretched, clasped hands. It comes out on frame 6, making it Wii Fit Trainer's second fastest aerial in terms of startup, and a fast attack in general. In addition to having a wide range compared to the Trainer's other aerials, it has good juggling potential, auto-cancels from a short hop. Decent knockback, KOing Mario at 150% off the top of Final Destination.
Down aerial Chair 13% (clean grounded), 14% (clean aerial), 10% (late) Assumes the Chair pose to perform a double foot stomp. It can meteor smash aerial opponents, but not grounded ones. Despite this, it is still fairly powerful against grounded opponents, as it KOs middleweights at 144% while near the edge. It comes out on frame 15, which makes it Wii Fit Trainer's slowest aerial in terms of startup, but has low ending lag and autocancels in a short hop.
Grab   Performs a Rowing Squat to grab and lift the opponent off the ground. Wii Fit Trainer's grabs are fast,but have below average range.
Pummel   1.3% Squeezes the opponent. It is an average speed pummel.
Forward throw Jump Serve 3% (hit 1), 7% (throw) A jump serve, a technique used in volleyball.
Back throw Dropkick 3% (hit 1), 6% (throw) Throws the opponent backwards and then dropkicks them away It's her strongest throw, but not the best KO throw, usually KOing at around 140%.
Up throw Jump Set 8% A jump set, a technique used in volleyball. Has combo potential.
Down throw   7% Slams the opponent onto the ground between both legs. Can be used to start combos.
Floor attack (front)   7% Performs a spinning, double-footed roundhouse kick.
Floor attack (back)   7% Kicks around the floor while getting up.
Floor attack (trip)   5% Kicks around the floor while getting up.
Edge attack Side Plank 9% Assumes the Side Plank pose while climbing up.
Neutral special Sun Salutation 5% (uncharged), 21% (fully charged) Assumes the Sun Worship pose and charges a yellow energy ball in the air. Like Charge Shot, the energy ball grows in size as it charges. A fully charged Sun Salutation is quite strong, KOing Mario near the edge of Final Destination at 110%. Firing a fully charged Sun Salutation also heals Wii Fit Trainer by 2%. Charging a Sun Salutation also causes a weak push effect during the charge.
Side special Header 15% (clean headbutt), 8.8%-12.3% (soccer ball) Heads a soccer ball. It has impressive mindgame potential overall, due to its manipulable nature and hitboxes. The ball can be hit early if the special button is pressed, which launches the ball at different angles. Wii Fit Trainer can also air dodge upon initiating it, which drops the ball and allows Wii Fit Trainer to subsequently launching it with any other attack. However, air dodging while using Header renders helplessness. Aside from hitting the ball, the headbutt itself can be used as an attack and is able to meteor smash. In addition to its offensive potential, it has recovery potential: using it after a jump grants a slight boost upward, whereas using it while descending will briefly stall, similarly to Cape. However, it cannot be used again until Wii Fit Trainer either lands on a platform or stage or gets hit.
Up special Super Hoop 5% (hits 1-3) Hula hoops twirl around Wii Fit Trainer’s body in order to ascend. Button mashing or rhythmic tapping will make Wii Fit Trainer ascend higher and faster, which greatly improves its ascent. The hoops hit multiple times, but does not have hitboxes on the top, only the sides.
Down special Deep Breathing Takes a deep breath. When used correctly, it heals 2%, increases walking speed, run speed, initial dash speed, ground traction,fall speed, air speed, and gravity, while also increasing overall damage output by 20% (consequently improving knockback as well) for 12.2 seconds. However, it has a fairly long refresh time of 40 seconds. Subsequent uses before the 40 second refresh is complete yield smaller buffs and a shorter duration (~9 seconds), regardless of whether or not the initial use was successful.
Final Smash Wii Fit 2%/2.2%/2.5%/3% (medium silhouettes; based on position)
12% (large silhouette)
Assumes the Warrior pose to emit several multicolored afterimages forward, with each afterimage dealing damage and launching any opponents hit. The silhouettes assume varying yoga poses. A final, larger silhouette is released towards the end of the Final Smash. It travels much slowly across the stage compared to the smaller silhouettes. The final silhouette always assumes the Dancer pose.

On-screen appearance[edit]

In-game voice lines[edit]

When a Smash attack is used, there's a chance that Wii Fit Trainer will say a voice line. In addition, he/she will always say a voice line at the start of his/her Final Smash. These voice lines vary depending on the move used and the gender of Wii Fit Trainer.

  • Side taunt: Crosses both arms and starts to stretch both shoulders, saying "Stretch those shoulders." (肩の筋肉を伸ばします, Stretch those shoulder muscles.)
  • Down taunt: Sits down and stretches both legs, saying "Let's stretch our legs." (脚を伸ばしましょう, Let's stretch our legs.) Much like Luigi's side taunt, this taunt can allow Wii Fit Trainer to avoid attacks with high hitboxes.

Role in World of Light[edit]

Finding Wii Fit Trainer in World of Light

The female Wii Fit Trainer was among the fighters that were summoned to fight against the army of Master Hands. She was also present when Galeem unleashed his beams of light. She was seen alongside a panicking Duck Hunt and Villager. She performed the Tree yoga pose as she was hit by a beam of light presumably as a reference to her being intangible when performing an up smash move. She was then placed under Galeem's imprisonment along with the rest of the fighters, excluding Kirby.

In the mode itself, she can be found in a city area and can be saved rather quickly by choosing to save Sheik instead of Villager or Marth.

Spirits[edit]

Wii Fit Trainer's Fighter Spirits can be obtained by completing Classic Mode. They are also available periodically for purchase in the shop for 500 coins. Unlocking Wii Fit Trainer 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. Unlike most fighters, the Spirits for Wii Fit Trainer only use their artwork from Ultimate due to not having official artwork from the Wii Fit games.

Additionally, the Wii Fit Trainers makes an appearance in various Support Spirits.

Trivia[edit]

  • Wii Fit Trainer and Ryu are the only two characters whose full renders are not on the official website. In this case, the picture stops just below the thighs.
  • In the World of Light opening cutscene, the female Wii Fit Trainer performs the Tree yoga pose just before she is hit by a beam of light. This may reference the fact that her up smash, which uses the same pose, grants her intangibility for a brief moment.
  • On the character selection screen, the icon in the Japanese version show her name within only one row, while in the English version it is shown with two rows. This trait is shared with Captain Falcon, Mr. Game & Watch, Zero Suit Samus, Pokémon Trainer, Rosalina & Luma, the Mii Fighters, Piranha Plant and Banjo & Kazooie.
  • In French, Spanish, and German, the voice clip from the announcer on the victory screen is slightly different from the one used on the character select screen, instead featuring a noticeable translation of "the" ("l'Entraîneuse Wii Fit"/"l'Entraîneur Wii Fit", "la Entrenadora de Wii Fit"/"el Entrenador de Wii Fit", and "die Wii Fit-Trainerin"/"der Wii Fit-Trainer"). She shares this trait with Inkling, Pokémon Trainer, Villager, Hero, the Ice Climbers, and the Mii Fighters.
  • Aside from her regular attacks, several of Wii Fit Trainer's other animations correspond to exercises found in the Wii Fit series, including Push-ups as her crouch and crawl, the Spinal Twist as her prone animation, the Standing Knee as her parry animation, and the Side Plank as her ledge getup attack. She also makes use of several exercises that are not found in the Wii Fit games, such as Pull-ups for her ledge hang animation.
  • Wii Fit Trainer is the only character who travels to Wuhu Island in Classic Mode.
  • Wii Fit Trainer is one of two characters in Ultimate who, excluding throws, has canonical names for all of her attacks, unlike most fighters who only have a select few named attacks, with the other being Mega Man.
  • Wii Fit Trainer and Inkling are the only two characters in Ultimate to have gendered alternate costumes but female default costumes.
  • Wii Fit Trainer is one of three characters in Ultimate who possess a unique attack effect, being the solar effect on Sun Salutation. The other two characters are Snake with the Down effect and Joker with the Curse effect. Hero is also the only character to utilize the Poison effect via his Hocus Pocus spell, but it can only affect Hero himself rather than opponents.
  • In total, Wii Fit Trainer has 17 voice actors across both genders and all languages, the most out of any character in Ultimate.
  • Wii Fit Trainer, along with Palutena and Joker are the only characters who speak actual words during their smash attacks.
    • She is the one who speaks the most out of them all, with up to three different sentences assigned to each smash attack.
    • Interestingly enough, if a battle is quit or won while Wii Fit Trainer is speaking, such as during one of her taunts or smash attacks, she can still be heard even over the announcer. She shares this trait with Bayonetta.
  • Wii Fit Trainer, Pit, Dark Pit, and Ivysaur are considered to be the most average weight fighters.
  • Wii Fit Trainer, Mr. Game & Watch, Bayonetta, and Mega Man (while using his Mega Buster) are the only characters in SSBU to have different charging sound effects for their smash attacks, with Wii Fit Trainer's smash attacks charging with the blow of a whistle. This is a reference to how strength training repetitions in Wii Fit were signaled with a whistle blow.
    • Despite this, Wii Fit Trainer's down smash is her only smash attack that takes the form of a strength training exercise from Wii Fit, with the other two being yoga poses.
  • Wii Fit Trainer, Wario and Hero are the only characters who can heal themselves without the help of another character and/or when items are not made available; Wii Fit Trainer does so through Sun Salutation and Deep Breathing, Wario through Chomp, and Hero through the Heal spell in Command Selection.
    • Wii Fit Trainer is the only character with more than one healing move.
  • Wii Fit Trainer is the only character who faces Jigglypuff as a giant in Classic Mode.
  • Header's soccer ball is one of the only projectiles in Ultimate that stale-move negation does not affect, along with Pac-Man's Bonus Fruit.
    • However, hitting the soccer ball does stale the spike of Header, which in turn can unstale other moves without ever having to hit the opponent.
  • Close inspection of male and female Wii Fit Trainer's official renders reveals that the two gendered trainers have differently textured shirts, while their pants are the same texture.
  • None of Wii Fit Trainer's attacks have any sort of smear effect to simulate motion. She shares this trait only with Mr. Game & Watch, and the choice to omit these effects was presumably made in order to emphasize the yoga poses the moves are based on.
  • With the addition of the Jill Spirit, Wii Fit Trainer is one of the various characters who can appear in their default costume as a puppet in Spirit battles. The others are Mr. Game & Watch, Bowser Jr., Yoshi, Peach, Mario, Luigi, R.O.B., Inkling, Robin, Joker, Hero, Banjo & Kazooie, Fox, Pikachu, Wolf and Villager.
    • This is not counting Alph and female Corrin, who use their main colors in a few spirit battles, but themselves are alternate costumes.
