Confirmed Super Smash Bros Ultimate DLC Characters

The full confirmed roster of DLC characters announced so far, the DLC character price and how to get them in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.

Releasing with 74 characters from an enormous range of franchises, you might reasonably have thought that Nintendo would consider their job done and pack things up after Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. However, Ultimate’s roster is far from complete, and there are many more DLC characters planned to make their way into the game as part of fighters passes and future updates. While most of them have yet to be announced, we’ll keep this page updated with any details on all Super Smash Bros. Ultimate DLC characters as and when they arrive.

So far, only two DLC characters have been revealed and added to Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, and it’s fair to say that no one expected either of them when they were first announced. All the characters released so far can be purchased on the Smash Bros. website or by searching in the Nintendo eShop on your Switch. Read on to learn all we know so far about Super Smash Bros. Ultimate DLC characters.

1. Piranha Plant

Price: $4.99, or free if registered before 31st January 2019.

The first DLC character, Piranha Plant was announced prior to the launch of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, and came as a complete shock. Of all the many Nintendo characters that could have been chosen, the plant pot boy was their top pick? Qualms aside, Piranha Plant ended up being a surprisingly entertaining addition, spitting out poisonous gas and flinging spiked balls around. It’s just a shame he didn’t score too highly in our Tier List. Poor Piranha Plant.

2. Joker

Price: $5.99 - Challenger Pack 1

Price: $24.99 - Fighters Pass 1

Joker is the first DLC character in Fighters Pass 1, and comes with the Persona 5-themed Mementos stage. Making use of a gun and dagger, Joker also has access to several of his moves from Persona 5 such as Eiha, which deals damage over time to anyone it hits. His most unique feature is the Rebellion Gauge, which builds up over time or when hit. When it maxes out, Joker unleashes the Arsene Persona for a short time, powering up his attacks and changing his special moves to stronger variants.

3. Fighters Pass 1 and Challenger Packs 2-5

Price: $5.99 - Challenger Packs

Price: $24.99 - Fighters Pass 1

There are four more characters waiting to join Joker as part of Fighters Pass 1. Nintendo plans to add these in steady intervals up until February 2020, which should mean a new fighter every 2-3 months. Each new fighter will come with a new stage and new music to match, only available by purchasing the individual Challenger Packs or by buying the Fighters Pass. So far there are no details out as to which characters will be added, and no leaks or rumors have been shown to have any substance to them.

That’s all there is to know so far on the confirmed DLC characters for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, but rest assured we’ll update this page as soon as more information is revealed about each new fighter. All we know so far is that the five Challenger Pack DLC characters were already decided prior to the launch of Ultimate, but there’s always the chance for more to arriving in future once Fighter Pass 1 is complete.
