To help you get back into the groove with your character of choice, we’ve been busy building character guides for all of them. In this Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Lucina Guide, we’ll be highlighting the changes, Lucina moves set, alternate costumes, and more, for Lucina—the echo fighter of Marth.

For more on Super Smash Bros Ultimate, you can head over to our Smash Bros Ultimate Characters Guide. It’s got an ever-growing list of guides on every character in the game. We add them in regularly, so it’s definitely worth checking back to see if we’ve covered your favorite fighter yet.

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Lucina Guide

Those of you that played Super Smash Bros. for Wii U will know that Lucina is Marth’s echo fighter. This means that the majority of her moves are the same as Marth’s, though there are some differences in the way damage is dealt. Generally, Marth will put out more damage if he lands an attack with the tip of his sword. Lucina will land the same damage regardless of which part of the sword connects with her opponent. Let’s take a look at what else is new for Lucina in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Lucina Changes

Lucina has gone through some fairly minor changes since her last appearance. She shares almost all of the same tweaks as Marth, though there are a few notable differences. Let’s take a look at what has changed for Lucina in the jump from SSB4 to Ultimate:

  • Several animations have changed including idle, victory pose, down throw, dash attack, and jab.
  • Much like Marth, Lucina’s Dolphin Slash attack now ends with several images of Lucina imposed onto the screen. It’s a cool after effect that fades over time once the attack is completed.
  • Lucina has a new victory theme taken from Fire Emblem Awakening.
  • Players can now aim Shield Breaker more freely.
  • Dancing Blade is now faster.
  • Laura Bailey’s voice clips for Lucina in SSB4 have been reworked for Ultimate.

Super Smash Bros Ultimate Lucina Alternate Costumes

Lucina Alternate Costumes

Much like the majority of the fighters in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, Lucina has several alternate costumes. They aren’t really anything to write home about, though they do change her hair color in most cases. The variants are blue, forest green, brown, lilac, green, blonde, black, grey. We’ll be adding in some screens when the game launches.

Super Smash Bros Ultimate Lucina Final Smash

As you can see in the video embedded above, Lucina still uses Critical Hit as her Final Smash. This is a powerful attack that does come with some risk, given that you can be knocked offscreen if you miss. You can always cancel the move with B, but you need to be quick. You can check out some footage of Critical Hit in action in the video mentioned previously.

That’s everything we know about Lucina in Super Smash Bros Ultimate. We’ll be adding more info as we get it, but in the meantime you can head over to our Super Smash Bros Ultimate Guides Hub for more info on the game.
