Lucas Super Smash Bros Ultimate Guide - Unlock, Moves, Changes, Lucas Alternate Costumes, Final Smash

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

Super Smash Bros Ultimate is set to bring the largest roster we’ve seen in the series yet. It will feature every fighter from all previous Smash Bros games, as well as some new characters like Ridley and Inkling. With all of those characters to choose from, we figured we’d put together a guide on each, highlighting what’s changed since their last appearance, what the final smash is this time around, and what to expect in terms of alternate costumes. In this Super Smash Bros Ultimate Lucas Guide, we’ll be detailing Lucas. Specifically, we’ll be looking at the changes that have been made since his last appearance, what his Final Smash is, and what Alternate Costumes you can select.

For more on every single fighter in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, head over to our Super Smash Bros Ultimate Characters Guide. You'll find an ever-growing list of guides on all of the characters in the game, so keep checking back in to see if your favorite fighter has been covered yet.

How to Unlock Lucas in Super Smash Bros Ultimate

Unlike previous Smash games, fighters are unlocked in the same way for all, rather than character-specific challenges. This means that while it can be a bit of a grind, all you need to do is play the game naturally and you’ll eventually unlock all of the characters in Super Smash Bros Ultimate. We’ve listed the three ways you can unlock characters in Super Smash Bros Ultimate below:

  • Playing the World of Light single-player mode.
  • Completing Classic Mode with a character.
  • Playing the ‘Challenger Approaches’ fights that appear regularly, you will need to win them.

The fastest method involves triggering the Challenger Fights by reloading the game regularly. We’ve listed the method below:

  • Quit to the home screen and Restart the game.
  • Create a match with a custom rule set.
  • Make sure the match is 1 minute long, or 1 stock if you'd prefer.
  • After finishing the match (you can win or lose) you will offered a new Challenger Fight.
  • You'll need to win the Challenger fight
  • Repeat.
