How To Unlock Every Character and Stage In Smash Bros. Wii U

We may earn a commission from links on this page.

The 3DS and Wii U versions of Smash might have the same roster, but for whatever reason, the order in which you unlock the characters different. And if you're curious as to how to go about unlocking these characters, you've come to the right place.

GameXplain has this informational video which breaks down the character requirements. Basically, you need to complete a certain amount of matches for each character (or you can try some alternate methods, described here by TAY). If you'd like the easiest method in text form, here you go:

Falco: 10 matches

Wario: 20 matches

Lucina: 30 Matches

Dark Pit: 40 Matches

Dr Mario: 50 Matches

ROB: 60 Matches

Mr. Game & Watch: 80 matches

Duck Hunt: 100 Matches

And like last time, you can speed this all up if you set up 1-stock matches and instantly suicide. Those matches will count for your total! You'll still have to beat the new challenger in order to unlock it, of course.


As for stages—since the 3DS and Wii U version have some differences in stages, the fact the unlock requirements are different makes sense, too. Here's what you need to do in order to unlock all the stages:

Kongo jungle 64: Clear the "The original Heavyweights" event

Duck Hunt: Get 1 or more KOs in a single Solo Cruel Smash

Pokemon Stadium 2: Clearn the "When Lightning Strikes" event

Smashville: Clear the "Playing Tricks" event

Flat Zone X: Play alone and as Mr. Game & Watch and destroy 100-blocks in a single game of Trophy Rush

Pac-Land: Play all the maps in Smash Tour
