  • The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time (N64)
SSB Link

Link's 3d image from the game's official site.

Link is one of the eight starting characters in Super Smash Bros. and is the only one representing the Zelda franchise. He's based on Adult Link from Ocarina of Time, and his 3D model is almost directly taken from the game. He enters the arena by teleporting it with a beam of light. This may be a reference to the teleportation after Link defeats a boss from a dungeon.

He taunts by performing a pose whereby he stands on one leg and holds his sword in an attack position. This could be in reference to the pose he makes after hitting an enemy in Zelda II: The Adventure of Link.

He fights using his trademark Master Sword and Hylian Shield, and his basic moves are all sword attacks, with some moves directly referencing moves from Ocarina of Time. His Up aerial and Down aerial attacks are instead based on the Up Thrust and Down Thrust moves from Zelda II: The Adventure of Link.

As a grab move he uses the Hookshot, a recurring item from the Zelda series, based on its look from Ocarina of Time, which allows him to grab opponents from a distance.

Special moves:

  • Neutral - Boomerang: Link throws one of his trademark items, the boomerang, and like in its original appearances, it can be aimed before throwing it, and it can cause damage twice, once going and once returning. Its look is once again based on its look from Ocarina of Time, despite in that game Link only being able to use it while he's a child.
  • Up - Spin Attack: Link uses his recurring special attack swingning around his sword, first appearing in A Link to the Past, but once again its animation is here based on Ocarina of Time.
  • Down - Bomb: Link pulls out another of his trademark items, the bomb. This then works as a regular item, that can be thrown or just dropped, and he won't be able to pick any other item while holding it. The bomb is based on its appearance from Ocarina of Time and like in that game it explodes after a few seconds, but here, if thrown at an oppoent it directly explodes.

Palette swaps:

SSB Link palette

  • Green Tunic - 1P & Green Team: based on Link's classic green tunic.
  • Red Tunic - 2P & Red Team (Goron Tunic: The Legend of Zelda 64): Based on the Goron Tunic from The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time; it also resembles Link's appearance having obtained the Red Ring in the original The Legend of Zelda.
  • Blue Tunic - 3P & Blue Team (Zora Tunic: The Legend of Zelda 64): Based on the Zora Tunic from The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time.
  • Light Purple Tunic - 4P (Blue Ring Equipped: The Legend of Zelda FC) : Based on Link's appearance having obtained the Blue Ring in the original The Legend of Zelda.

Hyrule Castle

SSB Hyrule Castle

Mario and Luigi fighting in Hyrule Castle.

Link's home stage, it takes place on the rooftop of Hyrule Castle from Ocarina of Time, accuaratly reproducing its shape. Also Death Mountain, a recurring location from the Zelda series, can be seen in the background in its look from Ocarina of Time. Occasionally tornados come in the stage and if they touch a fighter, he/she will be sent flying in the air. This references the warp-tornado that could be summoned using the Recorder item in the original The Legend of Zelda.

Heart Container

SSB Heart Container

A recurring item from the Zelda series, when picked it restores all the character's health. This also happened in its original appearances, but its main purpose was actually to increase Link's maximum health.

Super Smash Bros.4Arrow L Zelda

Super Smash Bros. Melee features from the Zelda series:

(Other references)

Playable characters

Link returns from the previous game and there also is a new starting character and two new unlockable characters, for a total of 4 characters. However Zelda is actually two characters in one, so the total is 5 if counting Sheik as a different character.

Link

SSBM Link

Link returns from the previous game as a starting character. His look has been upgraded for the new console, but is still based on Ocarina of Time. He retains his basic moveset, with some minor changes.

He can now block projectiles with his shield by just standing, like he does in NES games.
His Spin Attack was slightly changed to give him more movement upwards, making it more effective for recovery.

SSBM Black Link

He retains his palette swaps from the previous game, but he also has a new black tunic, referencing Dark Link.

With the addition of the new Side Special attack feature in the game, Link's Boomerang attack is now his Side Special and he gains a new Neutral Special move, the Bow: Link brings out his trademark bow and shoots an arrow that can be charged more to go further. Like every other weapon, the bow is based on its look from Ocarina of Time.

Zelda

SSBM Zelda

The titular character from the Zelda series is a new starting character and like Link is based on her appearance in Ocarina of Time. Because of this being her first playable appearance in a Nintendo game (she was only playable in two of the three CD-i Zelda games, not created by Nintendo), all her basic moves are original, and due the magic abilities she has shown in most games, most of her moves are magic-based. Three of her four special moves are directly based on the three magic spells Link could learn in Ocarina of Time.

Special moves:

  • Neutral - Nayru's Love: A large blue crystal appears around Zelda, reflecting any projectile shot at her. Smaller crystals also appear rotating around the bigger one, damaging near opponents. It's based on the "Nayru's Love" spell from Ocarina of Time, where it would only block enemy attacks, it wouldn't refect them, and it wouldn't damage enemies.
  • Side - Din's Fire: Zelda shoots an aimable fireball that can be charged while in the air by holding the button, and as soon as it's released it explodes. It's based on the "Din's Fire" spell from Ocarina of Time, that created a large explosion of fire radiating outwards from Link, damaging all enemies nearby. In Melee it works differently, serving as Zelda's projectile, but the fireball explosion resembles the original spell.
  • Up - Farore's Wind: Zelda teleports herself above her, or in any other direction if the control stick is held. It's based on the "Farore's Wind" spell from Ocarina of Time, that Link could use to warp through dungeon rooms.
  • Down - Transform: Zelda transforms into her alter-ego Sheik, while the traditional Zelda "puzzle solved" chime plays. In Ocarina of Time the Zelda to Sheik transformation is never shown, so this is just the reverse of Sheik's transformation.

Palette swaps:

SSBM Zelda palette

  • Pink (default): Zelda's appearance in The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time.
  • Red: Resembles Zelda's appearance in The Legend of Zelda if Link possesses the Red Ring, and her appearance in Zelda II: the Adventure of Link.
  • Blue
  • Green: Resembles Zelda's appearance in The Legend of Zelda if Link possesses neither the Blue Ring nor the Red Ring.
  • Lavender (White): Resembles Zelda's appearance in The Legend of Zelda if Link only possesses the Blue Ring.

Sheik

SSBM Sheik

Based on Zelda's alter-ego from Ocarina of Time, she is only usable after selecting Zelda and using the Transform move, however she can transform immediatly before the beginning of a mach by holding the A button during the stage selection screen. For this reason Sheik can either be considered a different character or can be considered just part of Zelda's moveset. (Note that Sheik's gender has been largely debated, but is considered female in the Super Smash Bros. series)

Sheik is never seen fighting in her original appearance, so all her moves are original, but they are really fast and acrobatic moves, referencing the ninja-like characteristics sported in Ocarina of Time by Sheikahs, the race of which Sheik is supposed to be a part of.

Special moves:

  • Neutral - Needle Storm: A chargable projectile attack, Sheik weilds up to five needles and then throws them. This doesn't reference any specific move from the game.
  • Side - Chain: Sheik brings out a chain that can be directed in any direction using the analog stick. It can also be used as a recovery like Link's Hookshot. This doesn't reference any specific move, but may be based on the supposed relation of the Hookshot with the Sheikah race.
  • Up - Vanish: A teleport move that works just like Zelda's Farore's Wind move, but it gets Sheik less far and creates a little explosion as she disappears. Sheik used this move in Ocarina of Time, disappearing before Link's eyes after throwing a Deku Nut to create a flash of light.
  • Down - Transform: Sheik transforms back into Zelda. She used this move in Ocarina of Time to reveal her true identity, however her movements before the transformation were different.

Because she only appeared once in Ocarina of Time, her palette swap are simple recolorations that don't reference any game. They are Navy (default), Red, Blue, Green, and White. Each outfit is used with Zelda's corresponding outfit. SSBM Sheik palette

Ganondorf

SSBM Ganondorf

The main villain from the Zelda series is an unlockable character in Melee and is unlocked after playing 600 Vs. matches or beating Event 29: Triforce Gathering.

Like every other character, his appearance is based on Ocarina of Time, that's actually his only appearance in human form prior to this game, while in all other games he appeared as the beast Ganon.

In his original appearance he only fought using magic powers, so this is the first time he fights using hand-to-hand combat, but instead of having a set of original moves he's a clone of Captain Falcon, sharing all his basic moves with minor changes, but he's overall slower and stronger than Falcon. This can be considered an indirect link between the Zelda series and the F-Zero series.

His official artwork shows him holding a sword, but he never used it in Ocarina of Time, and he only uses it here in one of his victory poses.

Special moves:

  • Neutral - Warlock Punch: A slower, but stronger version of Captain Falcon's Falcon Punch. While performing it, his arm is sorrounded by purple energy. This attack doesn't reference any specific game, however it references his status as a warlock.
  • Side - Gerudo Dragon: A slower, but stronger version of Captain Falcon's Raptor Boost. While performing it, his arm is sorrounded by purple energy. This attack doesn't reference any specific game, but the name "Gerudo" references Ganondorf's race; also its name "Dragon" may come from the original move being "Raptor", keeping a reptilian theme.
  • Up - Dark Dive: His version of Captain Falcon's Falcon Dive, instead of fire it hurts the grabbed opponent with electricity.
  • Down - Wizard's Foot: His version of Captain Falcon's Falcon Dive, instead of fire it hurts the opponent with purple energy, causing the "darkness" effect.

SSBM Ganondorf palette Because of him only appearing in one game prior to this, his palette swaps are simple recoloring without any specific reference and are: Brown (default), Green, Red, Blue and Purple. Some fans like to consider the red version based on his beast form from the original The Legend of Zelda, but this is not confirmed and the outfit actually has nothing special other than the regular team color.

Young Link

SSBM Young Link

The younger version of Link, he's a new unlockable character in Melee and is unlocked by either beating Classic or Adventure mode with 10 characters (two of which must be Zelda series characters) or by playing 500 VS. mode matches.

Like his adult version, his appearance is based on Ocarina of Time and he also weilds the Kokiri Sword and Deku Sheild from that game.

He's a clone of Link sharing most of his moves, but he's faster and weaker, as well as being smaller, making him a harder target, but giving him a more limited range.
As a taunt he brigs out a bottle of Lon Lon Milk and drinks it, doing the same movements he does in Ocarina of Time.
One of his victory poses has him adjusting his belt, based on one of his idle animations from The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask.

The most notable change in his special moves is the Bow move being replaced by the Fire Bow, a weaker version of the attack that however sets the enemy on fire. This weapon is based on the Fire Arrows from Ocarina of Time and Majora's Mask. Also the Spin Attack has a tornado effect sucking in nearby opponents, probably to compensate for its shorter range.

SSBM Young Link palette His palette swaps are the same as Adult Link, though he couldn't change tunic as a kid in Ocarina of Time nor in Majora's Mask.

Dark Link

SSBM Dark Link

A dark version of Link, that prior to this game appeared in Zelda II: the Adventure of Link and Ocarina of Time (not counting a cameo in Oracle of Ages), he's fought in Event Match 18: Link's Adventure. The name of the event is a pun on Adventure of Link, and Dark Link himself seem to be based more on his original appearance than on his Ocarina of Time version, being totally black while in Ocarina of Time he has red eyes and the tridimentional shapes of his body were clearly visible.

He's not regularly playable, but there's a glitch that makes a character look totally black, making Dark Link practically usable.

Stages

The stage from the previous game doesn't return, but there are two new starting stages.

Great Bay

SSBM Great Bay

Based on the Great Bay from Majora's Mask, the fight takes place on the Marine Research Laboratory's platforms, though they are placed differently. Other platforms are provided by the big turtle, that in Majora's Mask was found in Great Bay, though in another point, and by Tingle's baloon that flies into the battlefield sometimes and, just like in Majora's Mask, it can be popped with a projectile.

The background features the falling Moon, a main element in the original game, and is seen constantly getting closer to the ground. When it reaches a certain height, the Four Giants that in Majora's Mask stop the moon, appear to push it back up.

Temple

SSBM Temple

Based on a generic temple from the Zelda series, it seems to be specifically based on temples and palaces from Zelda II: The Adventure of Link, also considering that the main music track of this stage comes from that game, however some of the platforms have writings on them that resemble the Hylian language from The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time. Unlike dungeons from Zelda II or any other Zelda game prior to Melee, this stage is placed on a floating island in the sky.

Underground Maze

SSBM Underground Maze

The third stage in Adventure Mode, it's based on a generic dungeon from the Zelda series. The stage features various rooms with a Master Sword, while the goal is to find the only room that has the Triforce instead, which is randomly chosen. The fact that there are various Master Swords may reference A Link to the Past, where Link found many fake swords before getting the true one. If the player enters in a room with a Master Sword, it disappears and the player has to fight Link; after he's defeated the stage goes on. Once the Triforce is obtained the stage ends, referencing its role as the most precious item in the Zelda universe an the final goal in some of the games, as well as its pieces being the goal in every dungeon in the original The Legend of Zelda. Its placement on a Master Sword pedestal may reference how in Ocarina of Time extracting the sword leads to the Sacred Realm where the Triforce is hidden.

The stage features three kinds of enemy from Ocarina of Time and Majora's Mask:

  • Octorok: An octopus-like creature that can shoot rocks, it appeared in every Zelda game prior to this, but here it's specifically based on its 3D appearance from Ocarina of Time and Majora's Mask; unlike in those games, however, it's not found in the water, but on land, like in its 2D appearances. It can also be found in crates or barrels in other modes.
  • Like Like: A tube-like enemy that can eat the fighters and then spit them causing damage, it's another recurring enemy in the Zelda series, appearing in each game prior to this, except for A Link to the Past, but its look is specifically based on its 3D appearance in Ocarina of Time and Majora's Mask. In each of its original appearances, however, it only eats the character's sheild or special tunic, instead of causing damage.
  • ReDead: A zombie-like monster that grabs the fighter causing damage, but it can be shaked off by mashing the controller's buttons. Prior to this game it only appeared in Ocarina of Time and Majora's Mask where its attack was the same, but it could also stun Link with their scream. It can also be found in crates or barrels in other modes.

Items

The Heart Container returns from the original game and there also is a new item.

The returning item keeps the same design and use, but instead of restoring the whole health, it now only restores 100 damage points. All-Star mode, however, still features Heart Containers that restore full health.

Bunny Hood

SSBM Bunny Hood

Once picked up, bunny ears appear on the fighter's head and he/she will run faster and jump higher for about 12 seconds, before disappearing. It's based on the "Bunny Hood" mask from Ocarina of Time and, more specifically from Majora's Mask. In Ocarina of Time it made the Running Man run faster, but it had no effect on Link, while in Majora's Mask it worked just like in Melee, though without a time limit.

Trophies

There are 30 Zelda trophies in the game. 15 character trophies (3 for each of the 5 characters), 2 item trophies, 1 character item trophy, 5 stage elements trophies, 3 enemy trophies and 4 trophies about Zelda elements not in the game:

Playable Characters
Link SSBM Trophy 007 Link The Legend of Zelda
07/87
Even in his youth, Link was already becoming the warrior who would carry the destiny of Hyrule (and many other lands) on his shoulders. His epic struggles against the forces of darkness are written in legend, and he is bound to the Princess Zelda and the archfiend Ganondorf by the awesome power of the Triforce.Clear Classic Mode as Link
Link [Smash] SSBM Trophy 008 Link Smash1 B: Bow
Smash B: Boomerang
Burdened with a shield, a heavy sword, and plenty of equipment, Link is not a very mobile character. Nevertheless, he's skilled with the blade, and his varied supply of missile weapons makes him a powerful fighter. To master Link, you must control the pace by balancing your long-range attacks with head-to-head swordplay.Clear Adventure Mode as Link
Link [Smash] SSBM Trophy 009 Link Smash2 Up & B: Spin Attack
Down & B: Bomb
Link's Bow, Boomerang, and Bombs all take time to wield, so you may want to try drawing them in midair to prevent your foes from attacking you while you're vulnerable. The Spin Attack can score consecutive midair hits, and the final slash is very powerful. Link's Bombs are his trump card, but he can't pull one out if he's carrying another item.Clear All-Star Mode as Link
Zelda SSBM Trophy 040 Zelda The Legend of Zelda
07/87
The crown princess of Hyrule. Zelda entrusted Link with the future of Hyrule after a revelation came to her in the world of dreams. She knows much about the Triforce; in fact, the only person who likely knows more about Triforce lore is Ganondorf himself, whom Zelda evaded in Ocarina of Time by transforming into her alter ego, Sheik.Clear Classic Mode as Zelda (or Sheik)
Zelda [Smash] SSBM Trophy 041 Zelda Smash1 B: Nayru's Love
Smash B: Din's Fire
Zelda is a bit slow and, because of her light frame, easy to send flying. On the other hand, her magical skills lend her reliable and explosive attack power. Zelda's easier to use if you focus on waiting and countering rather than pressing attacks. She can use Nayru's Love to reflect projectile attacks or as an offensive weapon.Clear Adventure Mode as Zelda (or Sheik)
Zelda [Smash] SSBM Trophy 042 Zelda Smash2 Up & B: Farore's Wind
Down & B: Transform
Zelda's midair Lightning Kick centers immense magical power in the ball of her foot. If she strikes perfectly, the attack is as strong as can be. If her aim is slightly off, it'll be exceedingly weak. Farore's Wind again utilizes Zelda's magical prowess, this time by transporting her great distances. It's vital to know the lay of the land before using this move.Clear All-Star Mode as Zelda (or Sheik)
Sheik SSBM Trophy 043 Sheik The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time
11/98
This is Zelda's alter ego. Using a variation of the name of the ancient Sheikah tribe, she appears before Link and teaches him melodies instrumental to his success. It's believed that she's not just a quick-change artist, but rather that she is able to instantaneously alter her clothing and her eye and skin color by using her magical skills.Clear Classic Mode as Zelda (or Sheik)
Sheik [Smash] SSBM Trophy 044 Sheik Smash1 B: Needle Storm
Smash B: Chain
Strategically switching between Zelda and Sheik is key. Compared to her Zelda form, Sheik is nimble and has gorgeous moves, but she lacks a strong knockout attack. The number of needles thrown in Needle Storm is based on how long you hold the B Button before releasing it. Use the Control Stick to wave the Chain after brandishing it.Clear Adventure Mode as Zelda (or Sheik)
Sheik [Smash] SSBM Trophy 045 Sheik Smash2 Up & B: Vanish
Down & B: Transform
The best strategy to use when playing as Sheik is to let her flow from one powerful attack into another, like a river of quicksilver. Zelda has some techniques with more punch, however, so in one-on-one battles, use Transform as needed. Sheik only travels a short way when using Vanish, but the move comes with a small explosion that damages foes around her.Clear All-Star Mode as Zelda (or Sheik)
Ganondorf SSBM Trophy 064 Ganondorf The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time
11/98
Said to be the sole man born to the Gerudo tribe in a hundred years, Ganondorf aspired to conquer the world. He plundered a piece of the sacred Triforce from the Temple of Time when Link pulled the Master Sword from its pedestal. With the Triforce of Power in Ganondorf's possession, Hyrule was plunged into darkness until Link and Zelda defeated the fiend.Clear Classic Mode as Ganondorf
Ganondorf [Smash] SSBM Trophy 065 Ganondorf Smash1 B: Warlock Punch
Smash B: Gerudo Dragon
Since he's slow and can't jump very high, Ganondorf relies mainly on his immense physical strength to overwhelm his enemies. His great weight also makes him a difficult foe to send offscreen. Ganondorf's Warlock Punch is slow but absurdly powerful, and when he strikes with his Gerudo Dragon, enemies rise skyward enveloped in dark flames.Clear Adventure Mode as Ganondorf
Ganondorf [Smash] SSBM Trophy 066 Ganondorf Smash2 Up & B: Dark Dive
Down & B: Wizard's Foot
Ganondorf's slow speed works against him in single combat, but in melees, his crazy power lets him earn his keep with innumerable KOs. Ganondorf can't strike quickly, but each blow he lands adds up. Ganondorf is at his quickest when he uses the Wizard's Foot, and his Dark Dive blasts foes in a burst of dark energy.Clear All-Star Mode as Ganondorf
Young Link SSBM Trophy 070 Young Link The Legend of Zelda
07/87
Link's younger incarnation is often considered to be the true Link: he was a young boy in the very first Legend of Zelda game, and he has appeared as a youth in most of the subsequent games. Since his debut on the original NES in 1987, Link's appearance has changed over and over again, each time adding to the mystique of his incomparable story.Clear Classic Mode as Young Link
Young Link [Smash] SSBM Trophy 071 Young Link Smash1 B: Fire Bow
Smash B: Boomerang
Young Link is lighter and faster than his older self, and his Kokiri sword packs less punch. Even though his Boomerang has a shorter range, he has greater control over it. He's a smaller target, and while his Hookshot has less reach than older Link's, you can still use it in midair as a last ditch attempt to grab a ledge.Clear Adventure Mode as Young Link
Young Link [Smash] SSBM Trophy 072 Young Link Smash2 Up & B: Spin Attack
Down & B: Bomb
With a youthful spring in his step, Young Link can perform amazing wall-jumps. Once he hits a wall, tap the Control stick in the opposite direction to send him leaping upward; you can practice to your heart's content in Target Test. His Spin Attack can strike multiple times even on the ground, and although it's hard to discern, so do his Bombs.Clear All-Star Mode as Young Link
Items
Heart Container SSBM Trophy 087 Heart Container The Legend of Zelda
07/87
Heart Containers drift toward the ground slowly and replenish 100 percentage points of health. In The Legend of Zelda, these items beefed up Link's life meter; in most cases, Link found them in the possession of bosses or hidden in secret areas. Heart Containers are often scattered across the land in several fragments.Play 100 VS. Matches
Bunny Hood SSBM Trophy 111 Bunny Hood The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time
11/98
Don the Bunny Hood to improve your agility drastically, allowing you to jump great distances and move at high speed. The ears are a cute accessory: they're even adorable on characters they don't quite suit. The Bunny Hood was key in Majora's Mask, where it made Link move at one-and-a-half times his normal speed.Perform a total of 125 combos with every character combined

Lon Lon Milk SSBM Trophy 156 Lon Lon Milk The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time
11/98
The pride of Lon Lon Ranch is this delicious and nutritious milk. When Link played Epona's Song for Lon Lon Cows, they would perk up and provide him with a bottle full of the tasty beverage. The fact that Link sometimes used bottles that had housed bugs is a matter of questionable hygiene. In Super Smash Bros. Melee, Young Link drinks milk instead of taunting.Total Time clear for Target Test is 25 minutes (avg. 1 min. per character)

Moon SSBM Trophy 171 Moon The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask
10/00
High in the sky above the Clock Town Tower, a menacing moon slowly sinks towards the city.

The moon breaks after Link defeats Majora's Mask.Available in the Lottery after completing Classic and Adventure Mode
Turtle SSBM Trophy 172 Turtle The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask
10/00
When Link played the New Wave Bossa Nova, what masqueraded as a lone island rose out of the waters of the Great Bay Coast and revealed itself to be a giant turtle. This mighty terrapin is ancient and wise beyond belief. It sensed Link's destiny and braved the stormy seas in order to transport him to the Great Bay Temple.Available in the Lottery after completing Classic and Adventure Mode
Four Giants SSBM Trophy 173 Four Giants The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask

"Swamp... Mountain... Ocean... Valley... The four who are there..." Link summons these four giant guardians to aid in his battle against the Skull Kid, who's possessed by Majora's Mask. They appear from the four compass points to catch the moon, which is about to crash into Clock Town. Without abandoning the innocent Skull Kid, they're able to protect the town.Available in Snag the Trophies
Master Sword SSBM Trophy 174 Master Sword The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time
11/98
The Master Sword varies a bit between titles in the Legend of Zelda series, but it's generally the most powerful blade that Link can carry. It's a magical weapon that can be wielded only by a true hero, and, as its name implies, it's the weapon of choice in decisive battles. At the end of The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, Link returned it to its stone pedestal.Available in Snag the Trophies
Enemies
ReDead SSBM Trophy 196 ReDead The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time
11/98
Seven years after Ganondorf took control of Hyrule, ReDeads roamed the ruins of Castle Town, moaning. At first, Link was shocked at the state of the town, and the apparent lack of survivors. He later learned that the townsfolk had evacuated to safety, and that the ReDeads were just magic animated into hideous humanoid shapes.Available in Snag the Trophies
Octorok SSBM Trophy 197 Octorok The Legend of Zelda
07/87
These common enemies made their debut in the very first Legend of Zelda game and have been a staple of every game in the series since. They shoot rocks from their mouths at high velocity, but the projectiles are simple to block and do very little damage. Octoroks have low stamina, so they don't pose much of a threat to good fighters.Available in Snag the Trophies
Like Like SSBM Trophy 198 Like Like The Legend of Zelda
07/87
In The Legend of Zelda, these slow-footed monsters inhaled Link and ate his shield, just beating out Wallmasters for the coveted title of "Most Aggravating Enemies Ever." Supposedly, their name comes from an old, almost indecipherable Hyrulian proverb: "Shield-eaters and world leaders have many likes alike.Available in Snag the Trophies

Most Gorons inhabit the stony slopes of Death Mountain. They can achieve incredible land speeds by curling up into balls and rolling: they also curl up into small balls to sleep. They're a gentle and calm people, but their leader, Darunia, is impassioned and brave. Gorons use strong and dexterous fingers to make blades and bombs.Available in Snag the Trophies
Marin SSBM Trophy 220 Marin The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening
8/93
Marin is a young girl who cares for Link after a shipwreck washes him up on the shores of Koholint Island. She's a talented harpist, well liked for her kind and gentle nature. She holds fast to the ideals of truth and honor; if Link happens to steal something during his adventure, she greets him with a shout of "THIEF!"Unlock the Sound Test (unlock all characters, stages, and beat every event match)
Majora's Mask SSBM Trophy 221 Majora's Mask The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask
10/00
A lonely Skull Kid put on Majora's Mask and unknowingly allowed a great evil to invade the land of Termina. The mask manifested its evil power into the fearsome looking moon, and the Skull Kid became merely a puppet under its malevolent power. In the ultimate battle with Link, Majora's Mask transformed into three separate forms.Beat Event Match 47: Trophy Tussle 3
Ocarina of Time SSBM Trophy 222 Ocarina of Time The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time
11/98
This ocarina, the treasure of the House of Hyrule, was entrusted to Link by Zelda when she fled from Ganondorf's insurrection. When used in conjunction with three Spiritual Stones, it opened the way to where the Master Sword rested.

Playable characters

The 4 (or 5) characters from Melee return except Young Link, that's replaced by the new character Toon Link.

Link

SSBB Link

Link returns from the previous games once again as a starting character, but his look is now based on his appearance from the Wii title The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess. With his change in look, also some of his basic moves have changed to better fit the new style.

About his special moves, the Bow has been renamed Hero's Bow to match Twilight Princess and the Boomerang is now the Gale Boomerang, that creates a tornado that pulls opponents and some items to Link while returning, once again referencing the special boomerang from Twilight Princess; to compensate for this new feature, the attack deals less damage than before. Also the Spin Attack is now chargeable, like it is in most games in the Zelda series (including both Ocarina of Time and Twilight Princess). He now appears in the arena out of a whirlwind, referencing his ability to warp using the recorder in the original The Legend of Zelda.

His Final Smash move is Triforce Slash: The Triforce symbol glows on the back of Link's hand, then a ray of light stuns anyone horizontally in front of him. Link then dashes toward them and slices repeatedly with his sword dealing a high amount of damage, while they are blocked by a big Triforce symbol around them. This move never appeared in any Zelda game, but references Link owning the Triforce of Courage in Twilight Princess (as well as many other episodes).

One of his two new taunts is based on his "victory pose" from Twilight Princess, while the other one has him bringing out Navi, which is odd since she only appeared in Ocarina of Time, however the Wii version of Twilight Princess featured a Navi-like pointer on-screen.

SSBB Link golden & dark palette

Link retains the palette swaps from the previous game, but the dark outfit now also changes his skin black, his hair grey and his eyes red making him look like Dark Link in his cameo in Twilight Princess; however his sword retains the original color and his shield becomes mostly white, maybe referencing the Mirror Shield, a recurring item in the Zelda series. He also has a new Yellow outfit that makes him look golden, possibly referencing his Magic Armor from Twilight Princess or his glowing appearance after drinking Rare Chu Jelly or Great Fairy's Tears in the same game.

Zelda / Sheik

SSBB Zelda
SSBB Sheik

Zelda and Sheik return from the previous game as playable characters, keeping the ability to transform from one to the other, but this time they both appear on the select screen, sharing the same space as "Zelda / Sheik". Zelda will be the starting character by default, but her alter-ego can be used from the start of a match by clicking on Sheik's portrait after selecting the duo.

Like Link and Ganondorf, Zelda's look is now based on her appearance in The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess, while Sheik received a redesign based on concept art from that game, where she was originally supposed to appear, but was ultimately cut.
Their moves only received minor changes. Among these, Zelda's Farore's Wind move now produces a small explosion upon reappearing, dealing some damage to opponents. Also, Sheik's Chain attack can now act as a tether recovery, similarily to Link's Hookshot.

Unlike most of their other moves, Zelda and Sheik share their Final Smash move, Light Arrow: the character drows a large bow shooting a Light Arrow that deals great damage to any opponent in front of her and also sends them flying. The difference between them is Sheik's attack being slightly more powerful and sending the enemies straight, while Zelda's sends them in a 45 degree angle upwards. This move is based on Zelda's attack in Wind Waker and, more specifically, Twilight Princess, the only weapon that could stun Ganondorf making him vulnerable to the Master Sword.

They retain the palette swap colors from the previous game, but Zelda's default outfit is now White, while the pink outfit is moved to a secondary one and has Zelda's hair color changing to match her look from Ocarina of Time and Melee. Also Sheik's blue outfit has a red scarf, possibly referencing Tetra, Zelda's alter-ego in Wind Waker. They also have a new Black outfit: SSBB Zelda&Sheik palette

Ganondorf

SSBB Ganondorf

Ganondorf returns from the previous game as an unlockable character, and is unlocked by either:

  • Clearing Classic Mode on hard with Zelda or Link; he then has to be defeated.
  • Playing 200 brawls; he then has to be defeated.
  • Having Ganondorf join the player's party in Adventure Mode: The Subspace Emissary (collecting the Link and Zelda trophies in the Subspace Emissary).

He retains his moveset from Melee, but many moves have been slightly changed and some of them also have a new animation, possibly to differentiate him from his former clone, Captain Falcon. He also has a new Side Special move, Flame Choke: Ganondorf charges at his opponent similarly to the former Side Special Gerudo Dragon, but instead of performing an uppercut he grabs the opponent by the head and attacks them with a dark pulse, before slamming them into the ground. This move may be based on his attack that killed one of the ancient sages during the cutscene presenting him, in Twilight Princess.

SSBB Ganon

His Final Smash move is Beast Ganon: Ganondorf transforms into his beast form and does a dash across the stage, then reappearing in the spot he initially was. This move is obviously based on his beast form appearing in each game he appeared in except for Wind Waker, but is specifically based on his design from Twilight Princess.

Like Link and Zelda he's redesigned to match his appearance from Twilight Princess. He retains the palette swap colors from the previous game, but his default outfit is now the purple one, while the brown one is a secondary outfit. He also has a new Black outfit with white hair: SSBB Ganondorf palette

Toon Link

SSBB Toon Link

The cartoonish version of Link from Wind Waker, its sequel and the Four Sword trilogy is a new unlockable character that serves as Young Link's replacement, being Link's clone. He's unlocked by either:

  • Completing Classic Mode with any character on any difficulty after finishing Adventure Mode: The Subspace Emissary; he then has to be defeated.
  • Defeating him in the Forest level of the Subspace Emissary after the story is completed.
  • Playing 400 brawls in Brawl mode; he then has to be defeated.

He retains most of Toon Link's moves, but some are changed so that he uses the sword in almost all of them, mainly because due to his short legs he'd be unable to kick effectively. About his special moves, the Fire Bow is replaced by the Hero's Bow, that's more similar to the regular Link's bow; the other special moves are mostly unchanged, however all his weapons are redesigned to look like those from Wind Waker and Phantom Hourglass. This means that his Side Special move is still the regular Boomerang, making it different than Link's Gale Boomerang.
For his Up taunt, Toon Link uses the Wind Waker baton itself.
His Final Smash move is the same as Link's, Triforce Slash, and has exactly the same function, but is designed in a more cartoonish way.

His palette swap are almost the same of Link's, but their references are different: SSBB Toon Link palette

  • Green (Default): Link's regular green tunic.
  • Red: Based on the red Link copy from the Four Swords saga.
  • Blue: Based on the blue Link copy from the Four Swords saga.
  • Purple: Based on the purple Link copy from the Four Swords saga.
  • Brown: Based on the color scheme of Link in the original The Legend of Zelda.
  • Black: Based on a toon version of Dark Link, who appeared closer to this color scheme in Four Swords Adventures.

Dark Link

SSBB Link vs Dark Link

Link fighting Dark Link

Dark Link returns as an "event match" opponent and is fought in Event Match 18: Dark Link Duel and along with Dark Samus in Co-Op Event 7: Battle of the Dark Sides. His design like in Melee is based on Zelda II being a totally black version of Link, so while this time Link has a "Dark Link" outfit, it looks different than the actual character.

Stages

The Temple stage returns as a starting stage basically unchanged from Melee, although since some textures are redesigned, the platroms now have writings in the Hylian language from The Wind Waker rather than Ocarina of Time.

There are two new stages, a starting one and an unlockable one:

Bridge of Eldin

SSBB Bridge of Eldin

A new starting stage based on the Bridge of Eldin from The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess. It's a totally flat stage and occasionally King Bulblin runs through it riding his Lord Bullbo damaging the fighters, referencing how in Twilight Princess he's fought on the bridge in one occasion. Most times, while running through, he also drops a bomb destroying a section of the bridge, referencing how in part of the game the bridge was interrupted, only in that case it was teleported away, not destroyed. However, after a while the missing part of the bridge reappears teleporting through a Twilight Portal, like in the original game.

The background also reproduces Twilight Princess's landscape, with its version of Hyrule Castle.

Pirate Ship

SSBB Pirate Ship

A new unlockable stage based on Tetra's Ship from The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker, it's unlocked atomatically with Toon Link.

Sometimes the ship arrives to an island providing a new terrain to fight on, before it sinks, forcing the fighters to return on the ship.

Also sometimes Link's ship in the game, The King of Red Lions, arrives behind the main ship, serving as an extra platform.

Occasionally a small catapult comes out of the ship and lauches the characters in the water, referencing the catapult used by Tetra and her crew to launch Link towards the Forsaken Fortress in the original game.

The background features some elements from Wind Waker, including enemy look-out towers that fire bombs at the fighters, just like they do to Link in the original game.

Another hazard is a cyclone that lauches the ship in the sky for a short period, removing the option to swim around the ship. This may reference the cyclone that Link could summon to warp between islands in Wind Waker, playing the Ballad of Gales with his Wind Waker baton.

Items

The two items from Melee return in Brawl but there also is a new item:

Returning items

SSBB Heart Container

The Heart Container and Bunny Hood return from Melee unchanged in use, but the Heart Container has been redesigned to match its appearance from Twilight Princess.

Deku Nut

SSBB Deku Nut

Based on the item from Ocarina of Time and Majora's Mask (it also appeared in Twilight Princess, but with a different function), just like in the original games it can be thrown on the ground to create a flash that stuns any nearby opponent; here, however, it also causes damage if directly thrown at the opponent.

Tingle

SSBB Assist Tingle

The recurring character from the Zelda series appears as an Assist Trophy in his Wind Waker look. Once he's summoned he chantes his magic phrase "Tingle! Tingle! Kooloo-limpah!" followed by one of various possible effects:

  • A plethora of Hammers and Golden Hammers appear on the stage. Note that Hammers and Golden Hammers will appear even if those items are turned off.
  • He just flies away releasing a plethora of balloons, with no effect on gameplay.
  • Tingle throws banana peels in the air and the whole ground becomes slippery.
  • He releases lots of flowers, making the camera zoom in on the fighter who summoned him.
  • Everyone gets the "Superspicy Curry" status.

Trophies

There are 47 Zelda trophies in the game. 10 playable character trophies (2 for each of the 5 characters), 1 Assist Trophy, 19 Twilight Princess character trophies, 14 Wind Waker character trophies and 3 item trophies.

Pigs SSBB Trophy 223 Pigs GCN The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker Cute creatures that roam the land. They are usually pink or black but are also sometimes patterned or even miniature.

The King of Red Lions SSBB Trophy 225 The King of Red Lions GCN The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker A talking ship that rescues Link when he is drawn out to sea by the Helmaroc King.

Masterpieces

Super Smash Bros. Brawl features "Masterpieces", playable trial versions of classic titles where the characters from the game originally appeared. These are actually full versions of the game, only with a set time limit. Two of these are Zelda games, a starting one, and an unlockable one:

SSBB Masterpiece TLoZ
The Legend of Zelda (NES): starting at the spawn screen (skipping the title screen), it stops after 2 minutes of play.
SSBB Masterpiece TLoZOoT
The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time (N64): Unlocked after using Toon Link ten times in battle, it already has two save files: one at the beginning of Child Link's section, and one at the beginning of Adult Link's section, to show the origin of the character. The first save file starts with already the Kokiri Sword, Deku Sheild and 50 rupees, while the other one obviously has all the needed items to reach that point of the game, but also some un-needed ones, such as the Hylian Sheild and the magic spell Farore's Wind, probably to show their origin. It starts with Deku Nuts, Bombs and Ocarina equipped. The game stops after 5 minutes of play.

Music tracks

The game features 18 music tracks in The Legend of Zelda category, all new to the game, but there also is one Zelda track in the Super Smash Bros. category returning from Melee and a new version of the Zelda characters victory fanfare, listed among Sound Effects in the Fanfare category.

Base tracks:

  • Main Theme (The Legend of Zelda): An orchestration of the main theme from The Legend of Zelda, different from the ones featured in the previous games. It is heard in the Bridge of Eldin stage.
  • Ocarina of Time Medley: A medley of ocarina tracks from Ocarina of Time, including Zelda's Lullaby, Sun's Song, Minuet of Forest, Bolero of Fire, Song of Storms, Epona's Song, Song of Time, and Saria's Song, along with original interludes between them. It is heard in the Bridge of Eldin stage.
  • The Dark World: An atmospheric mix of the Dark World theme from A Link to the Past. It is heard in the Bridge of Eldin stage.
  • Hyrule Field Theme: An orchestration of the Hyrule Field theme from Ocarina of Time. It is heard in the Bridge of Eldin stage.
  • Main Theme (Twilight Princess): The Hyrule Field theme taken directly from Twilight Princess, also including the theme that plays when Link enters Hyrule Field at the beginning, and parts of the on-foot version of the Hyrule Field theme. It is heard in the Bridge of Eldin stage.
  • Dragon Roost Island: The Dragon Roost Island theme taken directly from The Wind Waker. It is heard in the Pirate Ship stage and it's automatically unlocked with it.
  • The Great Sea: The sailing theme taken directly from The Wind Waker. It is heard in the Pirate Ship stage and it's automatically unlocked with it.
  • Gerudo Valley: The Gerudo Valley theme taken directly from Ocarina of Time. It is heard in the Pirate Ship stage and it's automatically unlocked with it.
  • Molgera Battle: The Molgera Battle theme taken directly from The Wind Waker. It is heard in the Pirate Ship stage and it's automatically unlocked with it.
  • Temple (Melee): Taken directly from Melee, it's the theme of the Temple stage.
  • Fanfare - 3: An orchestration of the "Triforce Shard Obtained" theme from The Legend of Zelda, it's used as the victory fanfare for the five Zelda characters.

Unlockable tracks:

  • Title (The Legend of Zelda): An orchestrated mix of both the title screen of the original The Legend of Zelda and the dungeon music from the same game. It's a randomly collectible CD track that once unlocked is heard in the Bridge of Eldin stage.
  • Hidden Mountain & Forest: An orchestration of the background music heard on the Dark World versions of the Lost Woods and Death Mountain in A Link to the Past. It's unlocked by clearing Event 18: Dark Link Duel at Hard difficulty and is then heard in the Bridge of Eldin stage.
  • The Hidden Village: The theme that plays in Twilight Princess during the monster shoot at the Hidden Village, it's taken directly from the game. It's a randomly collectible CD track that once unlocked is heard in the Bridge of Eldin stage.
  • Midna's Lament: The theme that plays in Twilight Princess while Wolf Link carries a dying Midna, it's taken directly from the game. It's a randomly collectible CD track that once unlocked is heard in the Bridge of Eldin stage.
  • Great Temple/Temple: A remix of the Great Temple themes from Zelda II. It's unlocked by clearing Event 33: Advent of the Evil King at Hard difficulty and is then heard in the Temple stage.
  • Tal Tal Heights: A remix of the overworld theme and the Tal Tal Heights theme from Link's Awakening. It's unlocked by clearing All-Star mode at Easy difficulty and is then heard in the Pirate Ship stage.
  • Song of Storms: A medley of the Song of Storms, Ganondorf's theme, and the Serenade of Water from Ocarina of Time. It is used on the Pirate Ship stage. It's unlocked by clearing Event 37: The Pirate Airship and is then heard in the Pirate Ship stage.
  • Village of the Blue Maiden: The theme of the restored Village of the Blue Maiden taken directly from Four Swords Adventures. It's a randomly collectible CD track that once unlocked is heard in the Pirate Ship stage.
  • Termina Field: The Termina Field theme, including the Morning theme at the beginning, taken directly from Majora's Mask. It's a randomly collectible CD track that once unlocked is heard in the Pirate Ship stage.

Additionally, in the game's code there are empty music files called "snd_bgm_C06_KAZENOSAKANA", "snd_bgm_Z14_FZELDA", "snd_bgm_Z15_FSHEIK", "snd_bgm_Z20_FGANON", "snd_bgm_Z41_FTOONLINK". The first is believed to be a scrapped song from Link's Awakening, likely the "Ballad of the Wind Fish", or "Wind Fish's Egg", considering that "Kaze no Sakana" is the Japanese name of the Wind Fish; the other four are believed to be scrapped victory themes for the Zelda characters other than Link.

Other references

SSBB Timer

The Timer is an item that looks like a stopwatch that once grabbed, it slows down everyone on the stage besides the person who grabbed it. It is very likely based on similar items featured in various Nintendo games, that could immobilize every enemy on-screen while grabbed, like the Magical Clock from The Legend of Zelda.

Also, Dr. Wright's trophy references his appearance in Link's Awakening, though in the international versions of the game it says that there only was a character reminiscent of him in that game, since he was renamed in international versions of Link's Awakening.

Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and 3DS

September 13, 2014 (3DS); November 21, 2014 (Wii U)

Zelda5Arrow R Super Smash Bros.

Being alternate versions of the same game, these two feature mostly the same content, except for stages and trophies and including some different modes. Specifically they feature from The Legend of Zelda series:

(Other references)

Playable characters

All playable Zelda characters from Brawl return in this game, but Zelda and Sheik are now made into separate characters, no longer able to transform from one to the other, so there now are 5 fully distinct selectable characters.

Link

SSB4 Link

Link returns from Brawl with only some minor changes. These include a new dash attack, based on the Jump Slash, one of Link's iconic attacks from 3D Zelda games.

This game also introduces character customization, allowing to chose between a regular variation and two alternate ones for each character's moves. Link's alternate moves are:

  • Neutral:
    • Power Bow: a variation on the Hero's Bow move that takes longer to charge and is much weaker when uncharged, but is extremely powerful when fully charged.
    • Quickfire Bow: a much faster variation on the move, Link shoots arrow that go straight and pass through multiple targets dealing magic damage, but are weaker and don't travel as far. This variation may be based on the Light Arrows from the Zelda series.
  • Side:
    • Boomerang: reverting Gale Boomerang back to the regular Boomerang from games prior to Brawl, it deals more damage, but doesn't create the tornado.
    • Ripping Boomerang: Link throws a short-range boomerang that passes through opponents, dealing multiple hits (it doesn't create the tornado). In Super Smash Bros. for Wii U this variation needs to be unlocked by scoring at least 50 KOs in Endless Smash mode as Link.
  • Up:
    • Shocking Spin: a more powerful version of the Spin Attack that deals electric damage, but has much more limited mobility and leaves Link vulnerable.
    • Whirling Leap: a variation on the Spin Attack that creates a wind pushing Link upwards, but doesn't deal any damage to opponents.
  • Down:
    • Giant Bomb: Link uses a huge bomb that creates a larger and more powerful explosion, but only explodes after the timer runs out, rather than also exploding upon contact with opponents. This bomb may be inspired from the Super Bomb from A Link to the Past. In Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS this variation needs to be unlocked by destroying a total of 300 blocks in Trophy Rush.
    • Meteor Bomb: a version of the Bomb that deals less damage and has a shorter fuse, but its explosion has meteor smash effect on the opponents.
SSB4 Link palette

Link's new outfits.

Link keeps the same six alternate outfits from the previous game, but he also has two new ones that not only change his palette, but include completely different designs: a White based on his appearance as a resident of Skyloft from the beginning of The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword; a grey one based on Fierce Deity Link from The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask.

Zelda

SSB4 Zelda

Zelda returns from Brawl with a major change: she's no longer able to transform into Sheik. For this reason she has a new Down Special move, Phantom Slash.
She received some other minor changes to her gameplay and moves, a notable one being her Up special Farore's Wind, now dealing damage and vertical knockback when she disappears and dealing more damage when she appears.
Like all other characters she also receives two new custom variants to each of her special moves.

All her new Special moves are:

  • Neutral:
    • Nayru's Rejection: a variation on Nayru's Love that is less powerful, but flips the opponent around.
    • Nayru's Passion: a variation on the move that draws opponents in and then creates an explosion, but doesn't reflect projectiles.
  • Side:
    • Din's Flare: a faster version of Din's Fire that can't be aimed up or down and deals the same amount of damage at all distances.
    • Din's Blaze: a variation on the move that has increased mobility and a delayed explosion.
  • Up:
    • Farore's Squall: a version of Farore's Wind that doesn't damage opponents, but pushes away opponents both at the beginning and at the end of the teleportation.
    • Farore's Windfall: Zelda can only teleport straight up, but the move has meteor smash effect on the opponents when she reappears.
SSB4 Phantom
  • Down - Phantom Slash: the new move replacing Transform, Zelda charges a projectile that then materializes into a Phantom, the guardian enemy from The Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass and Spirit Tracks, which then performs a stronger attack based on the level of charge of the move. The Phantom's design is updated to match Zelda's more realistic appearance and has a color scheme closer to Phantom Zelda, the form that the spirit of the Princess possesses and takes control of a Phantom in Spirit Tracks. This move references Zelda's tie to Phantoms in Spirit Tracks, where her spirit could possess said enemies and take control of them. The Phantom can be attacked and destroyed by the opponents and being treated as a projectile it can also be reflected; a reflected Phantom assumes a darker color scheme, closer to enemy Phantoms from the original games, referencing how it's no longer under Zelda's control. This move's variations are:
    • Phantom Breaker: the Phantom travels a set distance regardless of charge, but deals more shield damage.
    • Phantom Strike: the Phantom appears next to Zelda regardless of charge, but strikes more powerful attacks.
SSB4 Zelda palette

Zelda's new or updated purple, pink and white outfits.

Aesthetically, Zelda received some minor changes to her color scheme, appearing more vibrant, but that may be due to the game's different graphic style.
Some changes are also applied to details of her alternate outfits, especially her fourth swap, based on her Ocarina of Time incarnation, which is now purple rather than pink. She instead gets a new pink outfit based on her appearance from A Link to the Past and A Link Between Worlds, and a new white outfit.

Sheik

SSB4 Sheik

Sheik returns from Brawl as a distinct character from Zelda, and therefore gets a legitemate spot on the select screen for the first time. Like Zelda, she also obtains a new Down special move replacing Transform, but she also gets a new Side special move replacing Chain.
Her returning moves received some tweaks as well, most notable her Up Special now causes damage when she reappears as well as when she disappears. Like all other characters she also receives two new custom variants to each of her special moves.

All her new Special moves are:

  • Neutral:
    • Penetrating Needles: Sheik throws Needles that can go through multiple enemies and deal electric damage, but she can only charge up to three and they have a shorter range.
    • Paralyzing Needle: Sheik throws a single needle that paralyzes the opponent, but the move is slower.
  • Side - Bust Granade: the new move replacing Chain, Sheik throws a granade, holding on to it by a thread; when the attack button is released pulls the thread, removing the pin and causing the granade to explode after a small time. While the granade charges it creates a vortex effect that sucks in nearby enemies. This doesn't seem to reference any move from the Zelda series. Its custom variants are:
    • Gravity Grenade: the granade doesn't create the vortex and the explosion deals less damage, but it knocks the opponents toward Sheik, allowing for combos.
    • Skimming Grenade: the granade bounces on the ground with a controllable timed delay before exploding, but the explosion at the end deals less damage the more time it takes for it to explode.
  • Up:
    • Gale: A faster version of Vanish with increased mobility, but that doesn't deal any damage to opponents.
    • Abyss: Sheik disappears causing an explosion with a meteor smash effect on opponents, but she has limited range of teleportation.
  • Down - Bouncing Fish: the new move replacing Transform, Sheik leaps forward in a way similar to Zero Suit Samus's Flip Jump attack, ending with a kick; the kick can also be performed earlier if the player presses the attack button. Hit opponents receive high knockback, and Sheik jump back with the possibility to press the attack to perform an additional kick. This doesn't seem to reference any move from the Zelda series. Its custom variants are:
    • Jellyfish: Sheik jumps in a more vertical arc, and the hit will rebound her vertically, but deal less damage.
    • Pisces: Sheik jumps in a more horizontal and faster arc, but won't attack unless the button is pressed; the hit is stronger and Sheik rebounds forward.
SSB4 Sheik palette

Sheik's new Blue, Yellow and White outfits.

Aesthetically, Sheik received a slight redesign, being a combination of her previous two appearances.
Her alternate outfits received some changes as well, most notably her Blue outfit being replaced by a new one with a color scheme closer to her appearance from Ocarina of Time, and receiving two new outfits, a Yellow one and a White one with a red scarf and blue details looking closer to Tetra's color scheme from The Wind Waker.

Toon Link

SSB4 ToonLink

Toon Link returns from Brawl with only minor changes and is now a starting character rather than an unlockable one.

His Spin Attack move now leaves a green energy trail rather than a blue one, resembling the same attack as performed in The Wind Waker while weilding the Hero's Sword (altough Link weilds the Master Sword in this game, which left a blue trail in The Wind Waker).
His side taunt is now similar to Link's, in that he watches a fairy fly around him, however the fairy is based on its design from The Wind Waker.

SSB4 ToonLink palette

Toon Link's new outfits.

He retains all alternate outfits from the previous game, but has two new ones: a grey outfit resembling Link's appearance from the original The Legend of Zelda after obtaining the Blue Ring, and a teal outfit based on his appearance from The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past and A Link Between Worlds (the most evident difference from his classic The Legend of Zelda outfit being the yellow border on his hat).

Custom moves:

  • Neutral:
    • Fire Bow: a faster version of the Hero's Bow move, Link shoots a fire arrow that doesn't fly as far, but when it hits the ground creates a small flame that burns for about two seconds. This is based on Fire Arrows from the Zelda series, specifically from The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker.
    • Piercing Bow: Link fires an arrow that flies straight and passes through enemies and projectiles, but is not as strong and doesn't travel as fast as regular arrows.
  • Side:
    • Floating Boomerang: A variation on the Boomerang move that slower but easier to control.
    • High-Speed Boomerang: A faster but weaker version of the move, the boomerang will always return to the spot where it was thrown, rather than returning to Toon Link.
  • Up:
    • Sliding Spin Attack: A version of the spin attack that deals more damage and makes Link slide horizontally, but it takes longer to charge and has less vertical movement. This variation is based on the upgraded Spin Attack from The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker.
    • Flying Spin Attack: A version of the Spin Attack that ends with a vertical slash that sends him and hit opponents up into the air.
  • Down:
    • Time Bomb: Link throws a smaller bomb that only explodes after the timer runs out, rather than also exploding upon contact with opponents, and the explosion is weaker, but it launches opponents.
    • Short-Fused Bomb: Link throws a larger bomb that creates a larger and more powerful explosion, but has a much shorter fuse.

Ganondorf

SSB4 Ganondorf

Ganondorf returns from Brawl with only minor changes and is once again an unlockabe character in the 3DS version, unlocked after playing 80 VS matches and then defeating him, or by clearing Classic Mode as Link or Zelda on difficulty 5.0 or higher and then defeating him.
He's made into a starting character in the Wii U version.

His look received some minor updates, most notably he now sports his glowing chest wound from The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess.

SSB4 Ganondorf palette

Ganondorf's new outfits.

He keeps all the alternate outfits from the previous game, but reives two new ones, one with grey skin and a purple cape, and one with blue skin, based on his appearance as Ganon in 2D Zelda games.

Custom moves:

  • Neutral:
    • Warlock Blade: Ganondorf pulls out the Sword of Six Sages from The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess and thrusts it forward. This variation is less powerful than the Warlock Punch, but has much greater reach.
    • Warlock Thrust: a faster but weaker variation on the Warlock Punch that creates an explosion past Ganondorf's punch, adding more horizontal range and vertical range.
  • Side:
    • Flame Wave: a slower variation on the Flame Choke move that deals more damage and blasts grabbed opponents into the air rather than slamming them on the ground.
    • Flame Chain: Ganondorf dashes forward and strikes opponents repeatedly rather than grabbing them.
  • Up:
    • Dark Fists: instead of grabbing the opponent, Ganondorf punches opponents into the air.
    • Dark Vault: Ganondorf vaults upward twice, but can only grab opponents at the beginning of either vault.
  • Down:
    • Wizard's Dropkick: a variation on the Wizard's Foot move, that when used on the ground causes Ganondorf to jump and execute the flying kick. It creates a blue energy effect.
    • Wizard's Assault: when executed on the ground it's a faster kick that travels through opponents and has a longer reach. When used in the air Ganon executes a flying kick straight down. It creates a magenta energy effect.

Dark Link

SSB4 DarkLink

Image for A Fated Battle event match.

Dark Link returns once again as an Event match opponent only in Super Smash Bros. for Wii U. In the "A Fated Battle" event, which is fought in the Castle Siege stage, if the player doesn't defeat Ganondorf before the stage reaches its third background, two Dark Links will appear; it's not necessary to knock them out in order to win the match. They're once again darkened versions of Link, albeit not completely dark (though much darker than Link's black outfit).

The "Final Battle Team-Up" event match also includes an opponent representing Dark Link, but it's just Link in his black outfit.

Smash Run enemies

This 3DS-exclusive mode features many enemies that must be fought by players. 7 of these originate from The Legend of Zelda series, including the Octoroks and ReDeads from Melee’s Adventure Mode.

SSB4 Octorock

The Octorock's new design.

The Octoroks are now based on their appearance from The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword. They remain hidden in the ground and peek out to shoot rocks at approaching characters; when hiding they can't be hit with most attacks, but they can be grabbed.

ReDead received only a slight redesign, now looking more similar to their appearance from The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D. Like in Zelda games they now attack by releasing a powerful scream which stuns grounded players; they then attack with a powerful swipe.

Bubble

A recurring enemy in the Zelda series, it's based mainly on its appearance from The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D and come in two varieties:

SSB4 Bubble
  • Red Bubble: surrounded by red flames, it burns on contact and is weak to freezing and electic attacks, as well as Greninja's water attacks.
  • Blue Bubble: surrounded by blue flames, it freezes on contact and is weak to fire attacks.

By attacking a bubble with its respective weakness, the flames will be put out, making it momentarily harmless. This behaviour is similar to Ocarina of Time where the flames could be put out by parrying the Bubble's attack, or hitting it with stunning items. Blue Bubbles didn't have freezing powers in Ocarina of Time and this feature seems to come instead from Twilight Princess and Phantom Hourglass, where the two varieties were called Fire Bubble and Ice Bubble, with the latter possessing freezing powers.

Cucco

SSB4 CuccoEnemy

The chicken creature from the Zelda series, it's represented with its actual sprites from A Link to the Past. Like in its original appearance it's invulnerable and won't normally attack characters, but when hit enough times it will summon a swarm of offensive Cuccos.
Since it can't be defeated, the Cucco acts more like an obstacles for players to fight around.

Oddly, its trophy (which is separate from the Cucco item trophy) is tridimentional, specifically using the Cucco model from The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D.

Darknut

SSB4 Darknut

A recurring enemy in the Zelda series, it's based specifically on its appearance from The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess, both in looks as well as behaviour. It's a powerful but slow enemy that attacks swinging its sword, and also weilds a shield that can reflect projectiles. One enough damage is inflicted on it, it will lose its armor, becoming quicker, but more vulnerable to attacks.

Peahat

SSB4 Peahat

A recurring enemy in the Zelda series, it's based specifically on its appearance from The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D. Like in the original game, it flies around and attacks by ramming into characters and it can also produce smaller versions of itself called Peahat Larvae.

Stalfos

SSB4 Stalfos

The recurring skeleton enemy from the Zelda series, it's based specifically on its appearance from The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D. Like in the original game, it keeps his shield up, protecting it from attacks and reflecting projectiles, so it can only be hit by attacking from other directions or when it lowers its guard to attack.

Stages

The initially available stages differ between both versions of the game, with the 3DS version featuring 2 stages based on handheld Zelda games, and the Wii U version featuring 3 stages based on home console Zelda games. All these are starter stages and don't need to be unlocked.
Both 3DS stages (Gerudo Valley and Spirit Train) are new to Super Smash Bros. while the Wii U version features one new stage (Skyloft) and two stages returning basically unchanged from Brawl: Temple (originally from Melee), and Bridge of Eldin.

Additionally, the Hyrule Castle stage from the original Super Smash Bros. was added as a DLC to both versions on July 31, 2015, and the Pirate Ship stage from Brawl was added as DLC only to the Wii U version on September 30, 2015. Both return basically unchanged from their previous appearances.

Gerudo Valley

SSB4 GerudoValley

A stage based on the entrance to the Gerudo Valley from The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, but resembling specifically its appearance from Ocarina of Time 3D.

SSB4 KoumeKotake

Koume and Kotake

The center of the stage features the bridge from said area, and it can be attacked and broken, allowing access to the chasm below. Soon after the bridge is broken, the twin Gerudo witches Koume and Kotake, appear in the background; one of them at random then casts a spell at one half of the arena, affecting it: Koume's spell hits the left side of the stage, covering it in flames, while Kotake's spell hits the right side, covering it in freezing ice spikes. This reflects the twins' powers from Ocarina of Time, where they appeared as bosses of the Spirit Temple.
After the magic effects dissipate, the Song of Time will be heard, and the bridge will magically repair itself. This references how in the original game the song has magical time-altering powers, although it was never used on the bridge.
Still, the whole bridge mechanic references how in the original game the bridge was found broken at the beginning, and is later repaired.

Far in the background on the mountain on the left of the stage, the Gerudo's Fortress and Horseback Archery Range can be seen; these are nearby locations part of the Gerudo region in the original game.

Spirit Train

SSB4 SpiritTrain

A stage taking place on the moving train from The Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks.

The train is initially based on its basic appearance from the game, consisting in the Spirit Engine, Solid Passenger Car, and Trusty Freight Car (therefore leaving out the Practical Cannon), however the train will occasionally move over the right edge of the screen and return with a different rear carriage, which can be a broken carriage, one with multiple wooden platforms, a coal carriage, or a carriage with the Linebeck Trading Company on it.

Dark Trains and Armored Trains also appear on the stage and attack the train in various way, affecting the layout.

Link in his appearance from Spirit Tracks, wearing the Engineer's Clothes, is usually seen conducting the train. If either Link or Toon Link is selected as a fighter, the Link in the background will be replaced by his mentor Alfonzo. While this is likely a choice for consistency, it should be noted that Link's incarnation from Spirit Tracks is a completely different person than his Twilight Princess counterpart (that exists in a different timeline) and his Wind Waker counterpart (that existed in the same timeline, but generations before).

Skyloft

SSB4 Skyloft

The only new Zelda Stage in the Wii U version, it's set in the location from The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword, which is reproduced with almost perfect accuracy.

players battle on flying platforms, that then drop them in various locations from the game, including the bazaar, the Statue of the Goddess, the Knight Academy, Batreaux's house and the Light Tower.

Loftwings and Beedle's Air Shop can also be seen flying around the stage.

Items

All three Zelda items from the previous game return, and there are 5 new items: Fairy Bottle, Gust Bellows, Bombchu, Beetle and Cucco.

Returning items

SSB4 HeartContainer

The Heart Container, Bunny Hood and Deku Nut return from Brawl unchanged in use, however the Heart Container's appearance is once again updated to match The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword.

Fairy Bottle

SSB4 FairyBottle

The recurring healing item in the Zelda series, it seems to be based specifically on its appearance from Ocarina of Time or Skyward Sword.
If a character with less then 100 damage picks it up, it will act as a regular throwing item, however if a character picks it up with 100 or more damage, or reaches 100 damage while holding it, the bottle will open, and the fairy will heal 100 damage points to the user. The bottle also has the same effect if it's thrown at a character with 100 or more damage points (either an ally or an opponent).

This is based on how in Zelda games a bottled fairy would automatically heal a set amount of hearts if Link is knocked out, however it could also be used at will at any time.
The healing animation has the fairy flying around the user, just like in the original games.

Gust Bellows

SSB4 GustBellows

An item from The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword, like in the original game it can be used to shoot a powerful stream of wind that pushes items and opponents. Being a shooting item it has a limited supply of ammo, and once it is depleted it can only be thrown.
Throwing a Gust Bellows that still has ammo left causes it to bounce around releasing gusts of wind in random directions.

Bombchu

SSB4 Bombchu

A weapon from The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time and Majora's Mask, it looks and behaves just like in the original game: once thrown it will travel straight, along floors, walls and ceilings. If it hits an opponent, or otherwise after a set amount of time, it explodes.

Beetle

SSB4 Beetle

An item from The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword, when thrown it flies straight and if it hits an opponent it will grab them and drag them up into the air, potentially knocking them out over the upper blast line.
This is based on the Beetle's usage in the original game, where it could be thrown and controlled to grab items from a distance. It could also grab enemies once upgraded, but its design in this game is based on its base version.

Characters grabbed by the Beetle can button mash to escape the Beetle's hold, but the higher their damage points, the harder it is. If a Beetle hits a wall or other obstacles before grabbing an opponent, it will bounce back and become inactive, ready to be picked up again. If a potential target attacks a flying beetle, it will cause it to be reflected, potentially grabbing its thrower. A Beetle (either moving or inactive) can also be attacked and destroyed.

Cucco

SSB4 CuccoItem

The Cucco appears as an item, but this version is tridimentional, opposed to the sprite version that appears as an enemy. Specifically, its appearance is based on The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess, although with a more vibrant color scheme.

Much like its enemy counterpart, if attacked it will fly off and summon a flock of Cuccos that target the player who hit it, but can harm other characters as well.
This item version of the Cucco can also be picked up and thrown at an opponent to make them the target of the flock.

Ironically, while the Cucco summons a flock in most games it appears in, this doesn't happen in Twilight Princess, on which this version's appearance is based.

Assist Trophies

Tingle returns as an Assist Trophy, unaltered from his previous appearance, but there also are three new Assist Trophies based on the Zelda series: Skull Kid, Midna and Ghiraim.

Notably each of the four Assist Trophy originate from a different Zelda game: respectively The Wind Waker, Majora's Mask, Twilight Princess and Skyward Sword.

Skull Kid

SSB4 SkullKid

The Skull Kid from The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask, wearing the titular mask. Once summoned, he will cast a magic spell in the same way as it does in the original game, with one of three possible effects:

  • Turns the camera upside-down.
  • Reverses all directional inputs for all players, both vertically as well as horizontally.
  • Turns all fighters invisible.

While these specific effects are original to this game, some believe the flipping mechanic to reference to the Stone Temple from Majora's Mask, where rooms needed to be flipped upside-down in order to progress.

Midna

SSB4 Midna

Link's companion from The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess, when summoned she will extend her hair into an arm and grab opponents to then throw them away. If there are no nearby opponents, Midna will teleport closer.
Both her teleportation ability as well as her ability use her hair as a hand come from the original game.

Being treated as a fighter, Midna can be attacked and eventually knocked out.

Ghirahim

SSB4 Ghirahim

One of the main antagonists from The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword, once summoned he teleports around the stage attacking opponents with both his sword and his throwing daggers. He can be attacked and knocked out, but he's also capable of reflecting any projectile thrown at him.

All his attacks as well as the teleportation are taken from the original game.

Mii costumes

SSB4 Mii Link

Mii Swordfighters wearing the Link Outfit. The right one is the official Link Mii.

The game initially features two hats for Mii to wear themed after the Zelda series: Princess Zelda Wig and Sheik Mask.
While in the Wii U version both are unlocked by collecting them as randomly dropped items during matches or as random rewards in various modes, only Sheik Mask is found in random places in the 3DS version; Zelda's Wig is instead unlocked by winning 2 Smash battles as Zelda.

An additional headgear and a Mii Swordfighter outfit were released as DLC on April 15, 2015. These are Majora's Mask and Link Outfit. Since the Link Outfit consists in a hat and suit that can be used separately by Miis, there actually are 4 Zelda hats in total.

SSB4 Mii QRcode01 Link

The tunic of Link's Outfit, as well as the hat, are based specifically on Link's appearance from The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword, and they change the Mii's sword into the Master Sword. The hat also includes Link's hair. With the release of the outfit an official Mii based on Link was made available on the game's official site as a QR Code.

Smash Tour items

Items take the form of trophies in the board-game like Smash Tour mode exclusive to Super Smash Bros. for Wii U. There are three types of items: red items, that take effect on the battle, blue items, that take effect on the game board, and green items, that are usable in both. The game features 4 items from the Donkey Kong series:

SSB4 SmashTour item BunnyHood
Bunny Hood (Red): The user starts battle wearing the Bunny Hood.
SSB4 SmashTour item MajorasMask
Majora's Mask (Red): it inflicts 50 damage points to the user, but doubles their stats.
SSB4 SmashTour item Tingle
Tingle (Blue): Shuffles the fighters of all players.
SSB4 SmashTour item Tetra
Tetra (Blue): Places a trap on the board that steal fighters to players that walk on it.

Trophies

The list of trophies differs between the two versions of the game, with the 3DS version including 58 Zelda trophies and the Wii U version including 49 trophies. 18 trophies are the same in both versions, 40 trophies are exclusive for the 3DS version and 31 trophies are exclusive for the Wii U version, so there are 89 Zelda trophies in total across both versions.

Note: both versions of the game have an Alternate character trophy for each of the five fighters, therefore these are sometimes listed as appearing in both games, however since they feature completely different models, we list them as separate.

The final mighty blow has the power to launch opponents off the stage. When Link prepares the attack, the ray of light he emits must strike a rival, or the attack will fail. Shielding will do nothing to stop this powerful attack.

This specific update added compatibility with the amiibo from the Super Smash Bros. series based on Zelda characters. (Note that at the time only the Link amiibo was released; Zelda would be released on December 6, 2014, Sheik and Toon Link on January 22, 2015, and Ganondorf on June 11, 2015)

Trailer showing amiibo compatibility in Hyrule Warriors Legends.

Scanning one of them yields a random weapon for the respective character rated 3 stars or higher (Toon Link gives a weapon for Link). Additionally, scanning Link or Toon Link amiibo for the first time unlocks the Spinner weapon class for Link.

The amiibo feature is retained in the 3DS version of the game, Hyrule Warriors Legends (January 21, 2016), but since in this version the Spinner is available from the start, scanning the Link or Toon Link amiibo for the first time doesn't have any special effect; additionally, since this version of the game includes the character Toon Link, the Link and Toon Link amiibo now give weapons for the respective character, rather than both giving a Link weapon.

Link, Zelda, and Toon Link amiibo released later in the Zelda series (on December 1, 2016) have the same effect as the respective Super Smash Bros. amiibo in each game, however the feature was included in the game with the Super Smash Bros. amiibo in mind, as the trailer also implies, and either way Ganondorf remained exclusive to the Super Smash Bros. line.

The Switch version of the game, Hyrule Warriors: Definitive Edition (March 22, 2018), includes the same features as Hyrule Warriors Legends.

Any Link or Zelda amiibo in the Zelda series are compatible, with the same effect as their Super Smash Bros. counterpart, but since they were released on December 1, 2016, the feature was likely included with the Super Smash Bros. amiibo in mind, as promotional images also imply, and either way Ganondorf remained exclusive to the Super Smash Bros. line.

(Other references)

Playable characters

All characters from the previous games return, which includes 5 fighters returning from Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS / Wii U, and Young Link returning from Melee.

Link

SSBU Link

Being one of the eight starting characters from the original Super Smash Bros. Link returns as a starting character in Ultimate, but he's now based on his incarnation from The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, giving him a completely different look and causing a number of changes to his moveset. This contributes to differentiate him from the other two versions of Link in the game.

Some of the most notable changes to his moveset include:

  • Link's Forward Smash now shoots a Sword Beam when performed at 0% damage. This is based on most Zelda games, where Link can shoot a sword beam when at full health; in Breath of the Wild he's only able to do so with the Master Sword.
  • Link now grabs the opponent directly with his hands instead of using the Clawshot. This is likely because Link doesn't have the Clawshoot (nor a Hookshot) in Breath of the Wild.
  • His Neutral Special, Hero's Bow, is now called Bow and Arrow and the arrows shot remain stuck to the ground for a while, allowing fighters to pick them up and throw them. This is based on Breath of the Wild, where Link can recover shot arrows from the ground.
  • His Side Special, Gale Boomerang, is replaced by the regular Boomerang, therefore functioning like it did in the original Super Smash Bros. and in Melee. It now also has a new animation of it falling to the ground before disappearing when Link fails to catch it back; this may be based on Breath of the Wild, where Link's Boomerang will fall and remain on the ground if he doesn't catch it.
  • His Down Special, Bomb, is replaced by Remote Bomb, a Rune from Breath of the Wild. Instead of exploding after a short while or upon impact with opponents, the Remote Bomb remains inactive until performing the Down Special move again, which makes Link activate his Sheikah Slate and detonate the bomb, causing a large explosion with high knockback. The bomb can't be detonated if an opponent is holding the bomb; the bomb will automatically explode only after 30 seconds.
  • His Final Smash, Triforce Slash, is replaced by Ancient Bow and Arrow, which has Link weild the powerful weapon from Breath of the Wild and shoot an arrow in front of him, working very similarily to similarly to Zelda and Sheik's Light Arrow Final Smash from previous games.

He also has a new stage entrance, where he glides in on his Paraglider from Breath of the Wild.

With his change of appearance Link gets a new set of alternate outfits, alternating between recolors of his appearance while wearing the Champion's Tunic, and recolors of his appearance while wearing the Hero of the Wild tunic, the Breath of the Wild version of Link's classic green tunic. Note that while it's possible to dye most clothes in Breath of the Wild, that's not possible with the Champion Tunic, and the alternate colors of the Hero of the Wild tunic in Ultimate are not achievable in Breath of the Wild.
SSBU Link palette

  • Blue: Link is wearing the Champion Tunic, his characteristic tunic from Breath of the Wild.
  • Green: the Hero of the Wild tunic.
  • Red: based on the Hylian Tunic from Breath of the Wild.
  • Grey: similar to the outfit from the previous game, it's based on Fierce Deity Link from The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask.
  • Indigo: Resembles the Royal Guard Uniform from Breath of the Wild, also changing the color of his shield to resemble the Royal Guard's Shield.
  • Teal: based on Link's appearance from The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess.
  • White: similar to the outfit from the previous game, it resembles Link's appearance as a resident of Skyloft in The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword, albeit less closely.
  • Black: same outfit as previous games, based on Dark Link, coincidentally it resembles the Dark Armor set from Breath of the Wild.

Link's Classic Mode is called "A Quest to Seal the Darkness", and all his opponents are characters affiliated with darkness, including Ganondorf on Round 5 and Link in his Dark Link outfit on Round 6. The final boss is Ganon.

Sheik

SSBU Sheik

Sheik returns as an unlockable character, and like all other characters she can be unlocked by either having her join the party in World of Light, playing enough VS matches or clearing Classic mode with specific characters. Specifically, Sheik is the 47th character unlocked playing VS Matches, and the fifth in Donkey Kong's Classic Mode unlock tree.

Her appearance is changed significantly to resemble the Sheikah Set from Breath of the Wild.
Sheik's moveset is largely the same as the previous game, but the charged needles from her Needle Storm move are now visible in her hand, and the Bouncing Fish move now produces a splashing effect at the start of the move. She also gets a new Final Smash, replacing Light Arrow, Sheikah Dance: Sheik dashes forward and slashes with her dagger; if this hits, the screen darneks and the Sheikah symbol appears in the background, as Sheik slashes caught opponents multiple times.

Sheik keeps the same alternate outfits as the previous game; they now resemble some of the possible dyes of the Sheikah Set, but that's likely a coincidence, also considering the the symbol on Sheik's chest changes like it did in the previous game, rather than remaining red like in Breath of the Wild.

Her Classic Mode is called "Masquerade" and all her opponents are characters wearing masks or other concealing headwear. The final boss is Master Hand.

Zelda

SSBU Zelda

Zelda returns for the first time as an unlockable character. She's the 2nd character unlocked playing VS Matches, and the fourth character in Kirby's Classic Mode unlock tree.

Similarily to Link, Zelda too received a complete redesign, but she's instead based on her appearance from The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds, also including some details from A Link to the Past. Alongside her looks she also receives completely new voice clips, and many new animations, including totally new win animations.

Her moveset also received a few changes, some of the most notable being her Din's Fire move now not leaving her helpless when used in midair, and her Phantom Slash move now receiving various levels of charge: Zelda can shoot the Phantom forward when only partially formed, which results in a kick or a punch, or charge the fully formed Phantom's attack to various levels; the fully charged attack can even be delayed allowing Zelda to move around and perform independent attacks before the Phantom strikes its own.
Zelda also receives a completely new Final Smash replacing Light Arrow, Triforce of Wisdom: Zelda summons her part of the Triforce in front of her, which has a powerful vacuum effect, trapping in nearby opponents and causing them damage; the move ends by launching trapped opponents or, if they are at 100% damage or higher, it instantly KOs them. This move is based on Zelda's ability to trap or seal evil beings away, as shown or mentioned in various games in the series.

She keeps all the same alternate outfits as the previous game, but her Pink outfit is now based on her Twilight Princess appearance, being swapped with her default one.

Zelda's Classic Mode is called Wisdom Prevails, and the opponents are villains from various series, but all fought in Zelda stages. The opponents in Round 3 are Mii Swordfighters dressed in Yiga Clan outfits, while the opponents in Round 6 are four Link in the Dark Link outfit. The Final Boss is Ganondorf, followed by Ganon.

Young Link

SSBU YoungLink

Young Link returns from Melee as an unlockable character, being the 8th character unlocked playing VS Matches, and the sixth character in Link's Classic Mode unlock tree.

His moveset received some changes, making making him closer to regular Link's moveset from previous games, including his bombs no longer damaging himself when also hitting an opponent; considering regular Link's moveset being changed significantly, these changes to Young Link contribute to making him a sort of stand-in for classic Link from previous games, while differentiating Young Link from Toon Link. He still keeps the exclusive Fire Bow move.

With Melee being his only previous apprearance, Young Link gets a stage entrance, and it's similar to Link's entrance from the original Super Smash Bros.
Like every other character since Brawl, he also gets a Final Smash move and it's the same as Toon Link's and Link's from previous games: Triforce Slash.

His Red, Blue, and White alternate outfits return unchanged from Melee, but he gets new Pink, Cyan, and Orange outfits, while his Black outfit is changed to be based on Dark Link, matching Link and Toon Link's Black outfits.
SSBU YoungLink palette

His Classic Mode is called "Hyrule Smash", and the opponents are all characters from the Zelda series. The final boss is Ganon.

The game features a special amiibo compatibility regarding this character: while scanning any Link amiibo will usually result in a Link Figure Player (and scanning any Toon Link amiibo results in a Toon Link Figure Player), scanning a Link - Majora's Mask amiibo results in a Young Link Figure Player, meaning that the game had to be programmed to recognize this specific amiibo, since it would otherwise be considered a Link amiibo.

Ganondorf

SSBU Ganondorf

Ganondorf returns as an unlockable character, being the 40th character unlocked playing VS Matches, and the fourth character in Yoshi's Classic Mode unlock tree.

His appearance is now reverted to his look from Melee, based on The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time. The change is also reflected in his sound clips and many of his animations.
His moveset also receives various changes, including using his sword from the "Space World 2000" tech demo for his smash attacks, which contributes to differentiate him from Captain Falcon.

His Final Smash was also changed to match Ocarina of Time, from Beast Ganon to Ganon, the Demon King, although the function is basically unchanged.

His alternate colors are similar to the ones from the previous game, but due to his redesign the outfits result different:
SSBU Ganondorf palette

  • Red (default)
  • Violet
  • Blue: it also changes the color of his skin to resemble Ganon's appearance in 2D Zelda games.
  • Green
  • Purple
  • Brown: it also changes the color of his skin to resemble his appearance from The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker.
  • White: similar to the Dark Link costumes of each Link, as well as Ganondorf's Black outfit from previous games.
  • Grey: similar to Ganondorf's appearance from The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess.

Ganondorf's Classic Mode is called "Encroaching Darkness", and his opponents are all heroes from various series. The final boss is Master Hand.

Toon Link

SSBU ToonLink

Toon Link returns as an unlockable character, being the 44th character unlocked playing VS Matches, and the eighth character in Link's Classic Mode unlock tree.

Unlike other Zelda characters, he only receives minor changes. These include his Bombs now exploding upon contact with any surface, which contributes to make him different from the other two versions of Link in the game.

His Classic Mode is called "The Teamwork of Courage", and all opponents are teams of fighters, and the player has two Toon Link CPU allies, likely a reference to the three Links from The Legend of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes. Round 6 is a fight against a giant Ganondorf, while the final boss is Ganon.

Ganon

SSBU Ganon

Ganondorf's demonic alter ego appears as a boss in Adventure Mode: World of Light, as well as in Classic Mode as Link, Young Link, Toon Link and Zelda's final boss.

The fight is based on the final boss battle from The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, so Ganon can only be damaged by attacking his tail; the stage is also an exclusive arena similar to the ruins of Ganon's Castle from said game.

Ganon uses various attacks, including shooting discs of light from his swords, similar to Demise from The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword, breathing a ball of fire similar to Calamity Ganon from Breath of the Wild, and unleashing a beam of darkness from his mouth, similar Dark Beast Ganon from Breath of the Wild.

Stages

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate features 9 Zelda stages, including all stages from previous games and a new one, Great Plateau Tower.

Returning stages

Returning stages are: Hyrule Castle, Great Bay, Temple, Bridge of Eldin, Pirate Ship, Gerudo Valley, Spirit Train, and Skyloft.

SSBU GreatBay

Great Bay's updated look.

All stages are basically unchanged from their previous appearances save for graphical enhancements, especially on stages returning from Melee and for Nintendo 3DS. Notably, the Great Bay stage is now slightly redesigned to include various details from the Majora's Mask 3D version of the location.

This game also adds the option to turn off Stage Hazards, which removes some of the more unpredictable elements from the stages, specifically: in Hyrule Castle there's no tornado; in Great Bay there isn't Tingle and the turtle never moves; in Bridge of Eldin King Bublin never appears (and the bridge never breaks); Pirate Ship remains static, without any background interference, nor the catapult activating; in Gerudo Valley the bridge never breaks (and Koume and Kotake never appear); in Spirit Train the last car never changes and Dark Trains and Armored Trains don't appear; Skyloft remains in its first platform formation flying around the scenery and never transitioning.
Being a completely static stage, Temple is unaffected by turning off hazards.

Great Plateau Tower

SSBU GreatPlateauTower

The only new Zelda stage in the game, it's based on the first Sheikah Tower from Breath of the Wild. The background is an accurate reproduction of the scenery from the original game, as seen from the tower.

The stage's layout is simple, consisting in only a flat platform and a structure acting as a ceiling. The top structure can be damaged an destroyed, in which case a platform appears in its place; after a while the platform disappears and the structure reappears. Platforms disappear and reappear using an effect similar to Link's teleportation.
The temporary platform has a writing in Sheikah language on it, reading "SMASH BROS".

Occasionally, the Old Man from Breath of the Wild can also be seen using the Paraglider in the background, sometimes stopping on the tower itself before gliding away.

Items

All items from the previous games return unchanged in Ultimate, being Heart Container, Bunny Hood, Deku Nut, Fairy Bottle, Gust Bellows, Bombchu, Beetle, and Cucco.

Assist Trophies

The Skull Kid, Midna, and Ghirahim Assist Trophies from the previous game return unchanged in Ultimate, but Tingle is removed and replaced by a new one, Moon.

Moon

SSBU Moon

The Moon from Majora's Mask appears as a new Assist Trophy in the game. When summoned it appears in the background and start approaching the stage, pointing in the direction of the opponent. When the Moon collides with the stage it creates a large explosion, dealing multiple hits.

This Assist Trophy can't be summoned on a number of stages, inncluding Spirit Train and Great Bay, where the Moon is present in the background.

Mii costumes

All Mii costumes from the previous game return in Ultimate, and are all available in the base game, being Princess Zelda Wig, Sheik Mask, Majora's Mask, and the Link costume consisting in Link's Outfit for Mii Swordfighter and Link Cap. Their design is basically the same, but the Princess Zelda Wig has hair of a lighter color, while the Link Cap has darker hair and a lighter border on the cap, resembling Link from A Link Between Worlds or older Zelda games (this causes the cap to be mismatched with the Outfit, which is still based on Skyward Sword).

SSBU Mii YigaClan

Mii Swordfighters wearing the Yiga Clan's Outfit and Mask.

The game also includes three new full outfits:

  • Champion's Outfit for Mii Swordfighters and Chapion's Wig, based on Link from Breath of the Wild (also the basis for the character in Ultimate); the Champion's Outfit also changes the Mii's sword to the Master Sword.
  • Skull Kid's Outfit for Mii Brawlers and Skull Kid Cap, based on Skull Kid from Majora's Mask (also an Assist Trophy in the game).
  • Yiga Clan's Outfit for Mii Swordfighter and Yiga Clan Mask, based on the recurring enemies from Breath of the Wild; the Yiga Clan's Outfit also changes the Mii's sword to the Yiga Footsoldier's signature weapon, the Vicious Sickle.

Most the Mii items vailable in the in-game shop or as random rewards, the only exception being:

  • Sheik Mask: found in a chest in the Sacred Land in Adventure Mode: World of Light.
  • Majora's Mask: as Ganondorf, clear the first stage of the final battle in Adventure Mode without being KO'd.
  • Champion's Outfit: defeat Ganon in Classic Mode.
  • Champion's Wig: clear Century Smash alone on Great Plateau Tower within 5 minutes.

Spirits

The game features 92 Spirits from the Zelda series. Most of them are unlockable in Spirits mode, either in Adventure Mode or the Spirits Board, where the player must win in an fight with specific conditions, simulating a fight against the spirit's character.
Some spirits can alternatively be unlocked by scanning the respective amiibo from Zelda lines; Alternative unlock criteria are indicated when available.

Each spirit is usually represented by artwork from their original game, but the six fighter spirits also have alternate artwork from Super Smash Bros. Ultimate itself.

Other references

Kirby has a new Stone Transformation where he turns into a model of the Treasure Chest from The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.

Adventure Mode: World of Light features some Zelda references:

  • A small location on the main map near the beginning of the mode is based on a Sheikah Tower from The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild; Link is found and unlocked there.
  • An area in the east part of the main map features a train track based on the one from The Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks. The Alfonzo & Engineer Link spirit is needed to drive the train.
  • The Mysterious Dimension features various questions regarding spirit characters in the game, and the player must choose the right one in order to progress. One of these questions is "Which spirit is the King of Twilight?" and the available spirits are Agahnim, Ganondorf (Twilight Princess), Zant, and Ghirahim. The correct answer is Zant, as that's the title he uses in The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess.
