All Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Characters

Every character in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate
Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is now available. It's the biggest Nintendo release on Nintendo Switch of the year, which is only appropriate for what has turned out to be the biggest Smash game ever: It includes every past character in addition to some newcomers, a huge number of stages, a new single-player campaign and more. You can read all about what to expect in our Super Smash Bros. Ultimate review in progress, and get pumped about the reveal of the first DLC character--Persona 5's Joker.
Across the series' near 20-year history, there have been dozens of fighters. With a total of 74 fighters to play in Ultimate, it might seem difficult to keep track of everyone, especially if you don't have the best memory of past games. To help you get up to speed with everyone you can expect to encounter, we've compiled the full roster of characters in one place. Nintendo favorites like Mario, Donkey Kong, and Link are all represented, alongside a variety of cult favorites and even some third-party characters. You 'll start out with only a small handful; from there, you'll have to unlock more characters.
While the roster is massive, that's possible in part thanks to what are called Echo Fighters. These Echo Fighters are essentially reskins of other characters. But it opens up Ultimate to an entire pantheon of additional fighters who can just adopt the moves of older Smash characters. Ultimate is launching with a few Echo Fighters, such as Princess Daisy who is a reskin of Princess Peach. Aside from characters, there's going to be a plethora of new assist trophies, such as Alucard from Castlevania and Rathalos from Monster Hunter. Not to mention there's also going to be bunch of new stages to fight in as well, which you can find in our feature documenting all the new stages in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.
Nintendo announced a bunch of new details during its final Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Nintendo Direct presentation, including its DLC plans to support the game, its starting roster, a new mode called Spirits, and much more. If you want all the juicy details, you can watch the whole thing too.
Super Smash Bros. Ultimate's roster is massive. Certainly the biggest we've ever seen in Smash Bros. game so far. So tell us: which character(s) are you most excited about? Don't be afraid, shout it in the comments below!
