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

Every single fighter from Smash history is making a comeback in Super Smash Bros Ultimate, bumping up the final roster to a massive 74-strong. There are new characters as well, and Echo Fighters, so plenty for fans to sink their teeth into. With all of the new fighters, features and Final Smashes, we figured it’d be good to write guides on every single character in the game. In this Super Smash Bros Ultimate Pit Guide, we’ll be taking a look at how Pit handles/feels in Super Smash Bros Ultimate. We’ll take a look at his Final Smash, the changes that have been made since his last appearance, and also what alternate outfits you’ll be able to equip and play with.

For details on the rest of the Super Smash Bros Ultimate Roster, head over to our Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Characters Guide. You'll find an ever-growing list of in-depth character guides, covering moves, outfits and all the new changes that the Nintendo Switch game brings with it.

How to Unlock Pit 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.
