Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Cheats For Nintendo Switch

  1. Palutena's Guidance

    Palutena's Guidance is a special version of Pit's taunt. It only works when you quickly and repeatedly press Pit's down taunt button while on the Palutena's Temple stage. When it's activated, Palutena, Viridi, and a few other characters will appear and provide Pit with commentary and tactics about one of his opponents.

  2. Snake's Codec

    Snake's Codec is a special version of his taunt. It can only be performed by quickly and repeatedly pressing Snake's down taunt while on the Shadow Moses Island stage. This will result in Snake contacting Colonel Campbell, Otacon, or Mei Ling from the Metal Gear series for tactical advice regarding his opponent. However, these are all recycled from their original Brawl versions; there are no Codecs for new fighters.

  3. New Game+ in World of Light

    To unlock New Game+, you must reach the True Ending in World of Light.

    Afterwards, you can enter New Game+ on your save file. All spirits and bosses return, making it a good way to earn more copies of spirits, and earning more skill spheres.

  4. Unlock the True Ending of World of Light

    During the Final Battle, Master Hand and Crazy Hand will be on the map.

    Defeating Master Hand and causing the forces of light to have the advantage by defeating Dark Spirits will cause Master Hand to reappear. Defeat him once again to free him.

    Defeating Crazy Hand and causing the forces of darkness to have the advantage by defeating mostly Light Spirits, will cause Crazy Hand to reappear. Defeat him once again to free him.

    After both hands are freed, you must adjust the balance of power between light and dark to be equal, by leaving roughly the same amount of spirits on the board from both sides. Once the balance of power is equal to both sides, the path at the top of the map will lead to Master Hand and Crazy Hand. Go to their space to engage the true ending.

  6. Unlock Characters via Gameplay

    In order to unlock characters via regular gameplay, you must actively play the game for a small period of time. That is to say, you must actually move your character, use attacks, etc. After doing so, you'll be challenged by a new character. This challenge can either happen after finishing a match in Smash Mode or after exiting another mode like Adventure Mode.

    If you defeat the challenger, that character will be unlocked. If you lose to the challenger, you can fight them again in Challenger's Approach under the Games and More menu. The rematch isn't always available so you might need to wait some time before you can challenge them again.

    The order that characters will challenge you in this manner is fixed. If you have unlocked a character via another means (Classic Mode or Adventure Mode), they will be skipped and the next character on the list will challenge you instead. The order is as follows:

    01. Ness
    02. Zelda
    03. Bowser
    04. Pit
    05. Inkling
    06. Villager
    07. Marth
    08. Young Link
    09. Wii Fit Trainer
    10. Ice Climbers

  7. Unlock Characters via Classic Mode

    In order to unlock characters via Classic Mode, you must beat Classic Mode with a certain character. When you do, you'll be challenged by a new character.

    If you defeat the challenger, that character will be unlocked. If you lose to the challenger, you can fight them again in Challenger's Approach under the Games and More menu. The rematch isn't always available so you might need to wait some time before you can challenge them again.

    The character unlocks are grouped in a particular way. In each group, if you use any of the previous characters in that group and complete Classic Mode, the next character in that group will challenge you. For example, completing Classic Mode with Mario will unlock Sonic. After Sonic is unlocked, completing Classic Mode with Mario or Sonic will unlock Bayonetta. After unlocking her, completing Classic Mode with Mario or Sonic or Bayonetta will unlocked Little Mac, and so on. At the end of each group, you'll be challenged by the first character in another group, meaning you can now use the entire group you just finished to help unlock that next group.

    Here are the groups and the order in which the characters are unlocked (if you have unlocked a character via another means (Adventure Mode or regular gameplay), they will be skipped and the next character on the list will challenge you instead):

    Mario Group:
    Sonic -> Bayonetta -> Little Mac -> Ike -> Luigi -> Roy -> Dr. Mario -> Olimar -> Bowser (leads to Donkey Kong Group)

    Donkey Kong Group:
    Bowser -> Pokemon Trainer -> Rosalina & Luma -> King Dedede -> Sheik -> Greninja -> Diddy Kong -> Duck Hunt -> Sonic (leads to Mario Group)

    Link Group:
    King K. Rool -> Ice Climbers -> Simon -> Meta Knight -> Snake -> Young Link -> Richter -> Toon Link -> Sonic (leads to Mario Group)

    Samus Group:
    Inkling -> Wii Fit Trainer -> Pit -> Incineroar -> Dark Samus -> Cloud -> Wario -> Dark Pit -> Sonic (leads to Mario Group)

    Yoshi Group:
    Lucario -> Marth -> Ryu -> Ganondorf -> Lucina -> Ridley -> Chrom -> Ken -> Sonic (leads to Mario Group)

    Kirby Group:
    Ness -> Jigglypuff -> Pac-Man -> Zelda -> Robin -> Corrin -> Lucas -> Palutena -> Sonic (leads to Mario Group)

    Fox Group:
    Captain Falcon -> Zero Suit Samus -> Peach -> Falco -> Daisy -> Bowser Jr. -> Wolf -> Mewtwo -> Sonic (leads to Mario Group)

    Pikachu Group:
    Villager -> Shulk -> R.O.B. -> Mega Man -> Isabelle -> Mr. Game & Watch -> Pichu -> Sonic (leads to Mario Group)

  8. Extra Water Damage

    Sonic, Charizard, Incineroar, and the Inklings will accumulate extra damage whenever they come into contact with water. This is because they are weak to water in their respective games.

  9. Secret Star Fox Taunts

    Fox, Falco, and Wolf each have hidden taunts. They can only be activated when you quickly and repeatedly press their down taunt button while on a Star Fox-themed stage. Doing so will trigger conversations between the cast of the Star Fox games. The dialogue on Lylat Cruise will change depending on which background is currently on the screen. Only Fox and Falco have hidden taunts on the Corneria stage. These secret taunts can only be performed once per match, and can be interrupted if the character gets hit mid-animation or a Smash Ball or Dragoon is obtained.

  10. Flat Fighters

    When playing on Flat Zone X, pause the game and zoom in close to the characters and rotate the camera. You'll find that the fighters are rendered in 2D, which mimics an LCD display. If you zoom the camera out, you'll find that stage takes place on a 3D rendering of the Game & Watch.

  12. Unlock Characters via Smash Mode

    When playing in Smash Mode, a new challenger will appear after you win or lose a match. If you defeat the challenger, that character will be unlocked. If you lose to the challenger, you can fight them again in Challenger's Approach under the Games and More menu.

    After this match, another challenger will not appear until you have actively played the game long enough. Alternatively, you can completely exit the game (you have to close it, not just hit the Home button) and restart the game to reset the counter and encounter the next challenger immediately after your next match. The challengers will appear in the order listed below, assuming that a character was not unlocked via another method.
