Super Smash Bros. for Wii U Unlockables

This guide lists all the Characters, Stages, and Challenges available to be unlocked in Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and how to unlock them.

It has been a couple weeks now since Super Smash Bros. for Wii U hit store shelves and brought its eight-player multiplayer. By now, I am sure you are eager to unlock everything that the game has to offer. In this article, I take a look at all of the characters, stages, and challenges that can be unlocked.

Note that, for obvious reasons, this article contains spoilers.

Characters

Every character in Super Smash Bros. has two ways that they can unlocked. The first method is by playing a set amount of Smash matches. The second method is by completing a unique requirement for each character.

If you unlock a character, but fail to beat them in the one-on-one Smash, do not worry. You do not need to complete the unlock requirement again, simply play any game and you will fight them again afterwards.
