Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Characters - Full Roster of 89 Fighters

Being one of the best crossovers of all time, SSBU contains an incredible roster of 89 characters and today we're going to have a look at them!

5 min    Views

The roster SSBU provides us is way too big enough to pick a character of your likes, whether of its play style, game franchise or whatever the reason, you’ll end up having a lot of fun in every fight!

Its full roster contains 89 characters if you take them individually (For ex. Pokémon trainer counts as 3, Pyra & Mythra as 2). Some Echo Fighters are so similar to their Main Fighter that it feels more like another costume/skin because they play almost the exact same way and I consider those slots could’ve had a better purpose. Nevertheless, removing them will end up having more than 80 unique fighters, which is amazing!

Now then, let’s proceed to the Pros/Cons Section, but before we go any further I’d like to mention that I put some Echo Fighters with their Main Fighter together to avoid duplicating content.
