Super Smash Bros Ultimate Character - Every Fighter in Smash Bros Ultimate

Super Smash Bros Ultimate Full Character Roster, plus guides on every fighter in the game, covering changes, moves and alternate outfits.

In this Super Smash Bros Ultimate Character Guide, we've listed every character in the game, along with links to each one's fighter guide. You'll find the moves, changes, Final Smashes and more for every character in Super Smash Bros Ultimate.

Will More Characters be Added to Super Smash Bros Ultimate as DLC

In recent iterations, Smash Bros received additional characters post-launch. These were added in as paid DLC, and would sometimes be the result of a voting process from the community. It seems that this will also be the case for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. Sakurai confirmed during the latest Nintendo Direct that there will be 5 extra paid-DLC fighters post-launch. Each will come with its own stage and music pack.

That's everything we know about the characters in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. We'll be updating this guide as we get more info, so stay tuned for more details.
