The final Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Direct before the game’s launch has revealed that 59 Assist Trophies will be available in the game, including newcomers like Spring Man, Akira, Wily Capsule and more.

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate 59 Assist Trophies

The following Assist Trophies were all confirmed to be appearing in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate during the Direct:


Starman returns from Super Smash Bros. 4 as an Assist Trophy, acting the same as he did in the 3DS and Wii U versions of the game — shooting PK Beam at opponents.


Nightmare also returns from Super Smash Bros. 4, blanketing stages in darkness after he appears.

Color TV-Game 15

Color TV-Game 15 reappears from Super Smash Bros. 4, as well, functioning the same by knocking a ball between two paddles — a terror for any fighter that gets between them.

Yuri Kozukata

The very first brand-new Assist Trophy shown off in the Direct is Yuri Kozukata from Fatal Frame: Maiden of Black Water.

When summoned, Yuri pulls out a camera and locks in on opponents, stunning them with a photograph and poisoning them.


Isaac also returns as an Assist Trophy after only appearing in Super Smash Bros. Brawl.

He functions mostly the same as before, using a Psynergy spell called “Move” to push, grab, or slam opponents.

This time, however, the hand that appears for his spell is much larger and more detailed.

Black Knight

Black Knight from Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance appears for the first time as an Assist Trophy, attacking opponents with his sword.


Thwomp, an enemy from the Mario universe, appears as an Assist Trophy, too, doing what he does best: crushing people.

Spring Man

Spring Man, from new Nintendo fighter ARMS, appears as an Assist Trophy, pummeling opponents with fast jabs.

Wily Capsule

Dr. Wily from the Mega Man series appears as an Assist Trophy, attacking opponents with drills attached to his hovering capsule.

If attacked by a player, Dr. Wily can fall from his capsule to the ground.

Flies & Hand

Flies & Hand, inspired by Mario Paint, debuts, too.

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

A flyswatter navigates around the screen, attempting to slap flies (but also slapping opponents in the process).


Tiki from the Fire Emblem series (although listed as a Fire Emblem Awakening character), makes her debut, as well, transforming into her manakete form and attacking foes with fire.

Vince from the Art Academy series debuts as a new Assist Trophy, painting objects on a canvas, which then appear on-screen and attack enmies.


Guile from the Street Fighter series makes his Assist Trophy debut, kicking foes off the stage.

Akira from the Virtua Fighter series also debuts as an Assist Trophy, also kicking enemies off the stage.
