When a less popular character doesn’t make it past the cutting room floor of the Super Smash Bros. roster, there is always a chance that the character comes in the form of an Assist Trophy. These items can be used on the battlefield to summon characters from different Nintendo franchises to wreak havoc or aid the players. It’s a neat little way to include even more characters into the mix, and Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and 3DS are both set to feature Assist Trophies. Here are all the ones we have seen so far!

  • Skull Kid (New)
  • Ashley (New)
  • Mother Brain (New)
  • Isabelle (New)
  • Midna (New)
  • Dark Samus (New)
  • Chain Chomp (New)
  • Elec Man (New)
  • Color TV-Game 15 (New)
  • Waluigi
  • Andross
  • Metroid
  • Devil
  • Knuckle Joe
  • Saki Amamiya
  • Lyn
  • Dr. Wright
  • Samurai Goroh

    Color TV-Game 15 is genius.

    I was surprised to see Midna appear as an Assist Trophy, as I JUST finished my 100% run on The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess.

  • Nookling

    I love the last one! Chain chomp was also a great idea. Looks like these are some creative new ones so the future is bright. Can anyone tell what Ashley actually does?

    • toadette fangirl

      a giant purple fog,but it doesn’t look to do damage.

  • Braystar

    Some of those are fillers, expectialy the pong ripoff

    • Luigiguy567

      Before the NES, Nintendo developed a home Pong Console for the company who made pong called the Color TV-Game 15.

      • Braystar

        … Me did not know dat…

  • MagiKooper

    Waluigi is really asking for it…..does he know who’s face he’s stepping on.

    • Boo3DarkBoo

      Don’t worry, for now Little Mac can’t move.

  • Sea Slug and Wagashi

    Starfy is in the pictures, but not in the list.
    Colour TV-Game 15 is SO COOL!

  • TwoDreamy Luigi

    “Oh, my Chain Chomp”. I might pet him, if he doesn’t lunge towards me, which Chain Chomp will do.

  • Boo3DarkBoo

    Why I think Master Ball was my idea? and this isn’t like the other time I wrote Koopa Cape in Mario Kart 7 wikipedia page and in the next day Koopa Cape was confirmed for that game.

    • MagiKooper

      I know someone here did actually say that they would be adding Master Balls

      • Boo3DarkBoo

        I’m sure you know, because it’s me I say that when I post a comment “Ideais for ssb4″, also I wrote about Super Leaf too in that comment and I just know it will be in smash 4 too. You can be the Psychic King, but I’m the Psychic Master. ;)

        • MagiKooper

          THAT’S PSYCHIC WIZARD!!!!….

          King is to overrated…and I was actually right.

          The crate and pikachu represented returning veteran….but I put failed to mention whether their be more than one but I did mention a veteran would return…….

          the future crate represented new stuff and new modes….which was Smash Run, a few stages, final smashes and movesets,

          and the gift crate…and New character and the release date of smash….though we didn’t get the exact date and it happen at the beginning…i call it a prediction in my book.


  • Boo3DarkBoo

    So good new trophies! Aldo I think the HD Dr. Wright seems to has a new look.

  • RLWilliams3D

    Gotta give credit for the Color T.V 15 Assist Trophy. :-)

  • Boo3DarkBoo

    For all the guys notice Tom Nook is in the background of Isabelle screenshot. Unfortunately he’s not a playabel character and he isn’t also an assiste trophy.

    • hey-ho

      thats not tom nook thats tim or tommy, tom nook has sad eyes

      • Boo3DarkBoo

        I thought it was Toom Nook because what he was wearing and because he was alone, I mean Tim and Tommy are always with each other and that isn’t the case.

    • Sea Slug and Wagashi

      Tom Nook has already been confirmed to be a part Villager’s FS.

  • anony

    there is galaga item not sure if it is an assist trophy

  • That Guy Over There

    When I first saw Skull Kid in a Pic of the Day, I thought he would throw the Moon from Majora’s Mask to the fighters. :P

  • J. R. S. T. J.

    Color TV-Game 15 as a playable character for SSB5!

  • Person McPerson


  • toadette fangirl

    yay midna!

  • Guy Shy

    The silhouette of a person in the trophy reminds of the character in Limbo. Other than that, I love the Colour TV-Game 15 though.

  • Luigiguy567

    I hope I’m not alone, but I want the computer virus from Kirby Super Star/Super Star Ultra to appear as an assist trophy.

  • GameGuy5

    The only ones really I care for are Chain Chomp, Isabelle, and of course, Color TV-Game 15. :p

  • JP

    i really wanted skull kid and ridley to be characters… and now that’s not happening. Thanks nintendo!
