Sheik Guide - Sheik Changes, Moves, Alternate Costumes
Sheik used to be an alternate form of Princess Zelda in Smash Bros. accessed by triggering a special move. Now though, she’s her own separate character, with a full move set to make use of. She’s undergone a fair few changes since the last game, though looks to be just as effective.

Sheik Alternate Costumes in Super Smash Bros Ultimate
Just like many other characters in Super Smash Bros Ultimate, Sheik will have Alternate Costumes to choose from. In general, they are just minor color variations on her main outfit. There are blue, red, purple, lilac, green, black, powder blue, and yellow outfits to choose from. As before, these outfit variants offer no difference in battle, but can be helped to distinguish between players using the same character.
Sheik Final Smash in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate
The biggest change to Sheik in Super Smash Bros Ultimate is her Final Smash. In fact, she’s actually got a completely new one altogether, replacing her Light arrow attack from previous games. The new smash sees Sheik launching several quick attacks in succession, before finishing with a slower, strong attack. While this is happening, the sheikah symbol flashes on screen.
