Link made his debut in the 1986 NES (and FDS) game The Legend of Zelda. In Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, he is now voiced by Kengo Takanashi, who reprises his role from The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. He now incorporates elements from The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild in his appearance and moveset.

Unlike most other Nintendo characters, there are several distinct incarnations of Link throughout The Legend of Zelda series, whether they are teen or pre-teen. He is marketed as one of Nintendo's flagship characters, along with Mario and Pikachu.

The original Donkey Kong was Mario's first nemesis, who held Mario's then girlfriend Pauline, who would later become the mayor of New Donk City. captive over a construction site. Mario had to make his way to the top of the skyscraper to rescue Pauline. Donkey Kong would later return in Donkey Kong Jr. which saw his son rescue him from Mario. He would later go up against Stanley the Bugman in Donkey Kong 3. The current Donkey Kong from Donkey Kong Country is the grandson of the original Donkey Kong.

#01: Mario

Fighter number 1 is Mario. Boxing Ring title: Mr. Video Game Himself.

The descriptions of the Fighters in the roster of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate have begun. Let's start with Mr. Nintendo himself, Mario, who debuted in Donkey Kong.

Mario is one of the original 12 of the Super Smash Bros. series. He is an all-around fighter who can respond to any situation. He dons his usual outfit in his first six costumes. He dons his Building outfit in his seventh costume and his wedding tuxedo from Super Mario Odyssey in his eighth costume.

Years before video games went mainstream, Shigeru Miyamoto developed the classic arcade game Donkey Kong, introducing Mario as the protagonist, and Donkey Kong as his nemesis. Mario's design was influenced by the strong limitations of the technology of the early 1980s. Miyamoto gave him a mustache under his big nose to show that he has a face and gave him overalls to distinguish his arms from the rest of his body.

Mario's appearance in the original Super Smash Bros. game on the Nintendo 64 and in Super Smash Bros. Melee is based on his appearance in Super Mario 64. His appearance in Super Smash Bros. Brawl is based on his appearance in Luigi's Mansion and Super Mario Sunshine. His appearance in Super Smash Bros. 4 is based on his appearance in Super Mario 3D World. His appearance in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is based on his appearance in Super Mario Odyssey.

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Roster so far

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is scheduled to be released on December 7, 2018, for Nintendo Switch. The Fighters (playable characters) are numbered in the order they joined the roster. The epsilon symbol (ε) indicates Echo Fighters, and the number next to it refers to the Fighter that the Echo Fighter is based on. The starter roster is the same as that of the original Nintendo 64 game, which was released in early 1999. Therefore, only the Fighters that were available by default in the original Nintendo 64 game are available by default in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, so the player must unlock the rest of the launch roster. Here are the numbers and names of the Fighters, and their respective debut games as of November 1, 2018:
