First a really big one before I go into character specifics:

Newcomers can only receive invitations after they beat a character already in the roster. For example, when :ultlittlemac: beat :ultdk: at the end of Punch Out Wii, he got his invite (and then things came full circle when :ultken: beat him). In smash 4, :ultchrom: lost his battle against :ultfalcon:, and :ultrobin: and :ultlucina: “avenging” him actually gave them spots on the roster. Come ultimate, :ultchrom: got his chance for a rematch and won. Most fighters who aren’t fighters in their home series (like :ultvillager::ultisabelle:) got in because they were supposed to fight :ultkirby: but he forgot what he was supposed to do and then just played with them the whole time and sent out invites to his new friends.

Now for the character specific ones (I’ve previously posted some of these elsewhere, but I’m spreading the word I guess):
-They all live in the palace that you see in the background of HRC
-Speaking of which, fighters like :ultroy:,:ultganondorf:, :ultdaisy: and :ultness: all get more competitive during HRC than any of the actual battles.
-:ultbowser: and :ultken: both compete over being the best dad. Other dads like :ultolimar: and :ultchrom: choose not to get involved, for fear of being burnt to death.
-:ultbanjokazooie: has been giving :ultyounglink: banjo/kazoo lessons, and in return he’s been giving them ocarina lessons.
-:ultmegaman: makes :ultmewtwo: uneasy because he has human level intellect and near-perfect free will, but :ultmewtwo: can’t read his mind because he’s still a robot.
-:ultdoc: is actually :ultmario: from an alternate “bad future” where :ultbowser: won, forcing both :ultdoc: and :ultpeach: to flee to New Donk City and become back alley doctors. :ultdoc: is also slightly evil.
-:ultshulk: sometimes gets visions that he chooses to do nothing about, except maybe get a camera out to film what’s about to happen
-:ultsonic: and :ult_terry: are total bros.
-:ultcorrin::ultcorrinf: think they’re good with kids. They aren’t.
-:ultbayonetta: thinks she’s bad with kids. She isn’t.
-:ultrosalina: thinks she’s good with kids. She is.
-:ultwario: has been secretly taking pictures of everyone’s feet. He’s not even into feet, he just sells these pictures on the black market. :ultsnake: is aware of these crimes and has done everything in his power to stop him, like sneaking into his room and destroying the camera before :ultwario: can print/upload the pictures. No one else knows about any of this.
-:ultduckhunt: and :ulttoonlink: are both the biggest trolls in the entire roster and sometimes team up to do Epic Pranks on the other fighters.
-:ultsamus:/:ultzss:+:ultsimon:/:ultrichter:=Metroidvania. I just realized this and I feel very stupid for not shipping any of these two sooner.
-:ultlucina: has trouble sleeping because she’s used to staying awake to scout for danger in the post-apocalyptic word she comes from. On nights like these, she’ll just sit outside until she feels safe enough to sleep. Occasionally, :ultmetaknight: :ultlucario: or :ultlittlemac: will still be awake training when she does this and will talk to her to help her feel better. Even more rarely, sometimes she’ll just wake up :ultchrom: or :ultmarth:and vent to them about her PTSD and insomnia and stuff.
-:ultrobin: once had his wife Tharja over. Most people didn’t get the appeal. :ultbayonetta: absolutely did.
-:ultrob: is really a sarcastic son of a gun who manages to sass everyone in robo-speak.

:ultbowser:,:ultsonic:,:ultluigi:,:ultkingdedede:,:ultkirby: and:ultness: being the only ones not needing to be saved and the only ones necessary to beat SSE in Brawl have a sort of found family dynamic formed from their time in the great maze

:ult_terry: destroys everyone in a basketball match.
:ultcloud: never smiles.
The Heroes play Dungeons and Dragons on the common room table. Sometimes they let others join in, too.
One time Eight(Where are the Hero alts?) bought Dungeon of Daggorath with a computer in a garage sale and decided to try it out. He got sucked in, and narrowly escaped.

I meant by Tabuu, the other 5 are all Trophified earlier in the game, are revived through the badges and are the only characters necessary to beat the game
Kirby was defeated by Tabuu. He had just eaten one of the badges.

You also didn't specify.

Master Hand had actually wanted :ultridley: and :ultkrool: in Smash since the 64 days, but he always was vetoed by Tortimer, the mayor of Smashville, whom he had to negotiate the roster with since the Smash Bros tournament take place in Smashville.

By the time of Ultimate :ultisabelle: has winded up becoming mayor, and she eases the restrictions on Master Hand in return for allowing herself to compete in Smash Bros. This is also why :ultwolf: and :ultsnake:return, and why characters from more mature series are allowed to compete. (i.e. :ultsimon::ultrichter::ultjoker::ult_terry:)

I imagine :ult_terry: playing with the Smash crew and telling them his love for basketball and the origin of Power Dunk. This idea sounds very cute.

Sans actually did get an invitation to join Super Smash Bros. but being how lazy he is and how exhausting fighting would be for him, he bribed an Mii Gunner to take his place thus the costume.

Despite the Pokémon (sans Lucario and Mewtwo who speak full English), Inklings, Kirby, and Yoshi only making noises, the other Smashers can understand them.

In everyone's world Smash is a huge deal and everybody knows about it. Hence why Ryuji can be heard saying "Smash Bros." is this for real? And fighters who are invited get huge merchandising deals in their associated world.

:ult_terry: And :ultken: are best bros, hanging out a lot. Admittedly, :ultryu: is a bit jealous.

People can typically tell what kind of mood :ultcloud:is in by what outfit he's wearing that day. If he's in his Advent Childre outfit, he's in one of his gloomy moods and the other Smashers tend to stay away.

:ultmetaknight: likes to hang out with the Fire Emblem cast because he thinks he fits in there and that they understand him.

After learning that :ultlucina: was actually a princess, :ultpeach: has tried to rope her into all her funny girl acticites like shopping, baking, and trying on pretty dresses. Lucina goes along with it, but feels really awkward.

During the WoL crisis, Morgana served as the transportation method for the FP1 fighters and Piranha Plant. When they rescue a fighter, the Morgana bus would suddenly pull in with Joker shooting at the enemies from the window. The others would bust out from the door and attack.

:ultbyleth:, or the sexy Byleth, is just named...well, Byleth. Girl Byleth, or the more epic one, is named Ophelia somehow.

-many smash characters have heard rumors of :ultmetaknight: looking wierd under the mask and are looking into ways to find out what he actually looks like, including but not limited to: stealing the mask, sneaking into his room at night and punching him until it falls off (the last one was never really done it was just a suggestion from :ultfalcon:)
-:ultryu: and :ultken: invited more street fighter characters for a party at smash mansion, Vega made friends with:ultbayonetta:, :ultganondorf: got angry with M Bison because Bison claimed he had more magic fists, Zangief and :ultdk: were spinning around for the entire party

So many head canons can result from that Street Fighter one. Sakura getting super hyped at being able to see all these fighting styles and characters, Birdie is is searching around the mansion on a "bad guy tour" looking for villains to join with, :ult_terry:is fighting with Dan and recognises something about his fighting style, but just cant seem to pin it down

Everybody was having a hard time differintiating the fire emblem crew until Roy came up with a solution while playing DK64. They now have a " FE rap"

When the WoL happened, :ultchrom: tried to protect :ultlucina: by using his body as a shield. It didn't work and both perished.

:ultdarksamus: is constantly plotting to take over everyone's minds but Master Hand and Crazy Hand made everyone immune to Phazon.

:ultincineroar: regularly plays with :ultlucas: and :ultpichu:.

:ulthero3:is respected by most everyone there. :ultdiddy::ultkrool::ultbanjokazooie::ultdarksamus: don't get it though.

:ultyounglink: and :ulttoonlink: are best friends. :ultlink: is the father figure of the trio.


The reason "EVERYONE IS HERE" happened was because the smashers saw the threat of Gallem and sent out word to everyone they could think of.

:ulttoonlink: loves the show One Piece and is always watching it with other Smash fighters. He’s seen it with everyone on the roster at least once at some point.

:ultbayonetta::ultlemmy::ultfalcon::ultcloud::ultfox::ulthero2::ultike::ultisabelle::ultjoker::ultlucas::ultlucina::ultpit::ultroy::ultsamus::ultshulk::ultsnake::ult_terry::ultyounglink::ultzelda::ultzss: are all the fighters who’ve enjoyed the show, however the problem is the fact that :ulttoonlink: usually watches like 20 episodes at a time and keeps people there to watch. He once even suggested having a marathon of each of the 900 episodes with everyone, which Master Hand keeps replying with by saying “Maybe later...” but:ulttoonlink: keeps asking. He dosent even see it as a lot of episodes.

Futaba Sakura is allowed to hang out with the Smash fighters since she’s part of :ultjoker:‘s final smash. She’s often the one watching it with :ulttoonlink: because she loves the show and sometimes :ultjoker: will watch with :ulttoonlink: and Futaba.

Okay, last part of the head canon, Futaba will occasionally reference One Piece during All-Out Attack if it’s against :ulttoonlink:

When it comes to :ultlittlemac: and his career with the WVBA, most of the boxers there are happy to see him go, if only because it means that he won't be around to pummel their faces into paste anymore. The only exceptions are Super Macho Man (who's jealous that Mac gets to fight on a much bigger stage with the all-stars of Nintendo), Mr. Sandman (who feels that it should be him in Mac's spot since he was the champion before Mac showed up) and Aran Ryan (who's just a fight-hungry loon that wants in on the Smash action).

:ultpiranha: was made fun of by all of the other Piranha Plants for being able to do everything each species of piranha plant, and not fitting into one category of piranha plant. Until Sakurai saw him and decided he would be perfect for Smash thanks to his powers

Contrary to popular belief, :ultminmin: does NOT have a crush on :ultfalcon:. She just sees him like the big brother she never had. (plus, Cap is taken. By :ultlucina:.)

:ultmario: and :ultdoc: are different people, with :ultmario: resembling his most recent games counterpart while :ultdoc: is more of a mixture of classic ones with some with other incarnations [Mainly from the animated shows].

The same applies to characters with other gender counterparts (:ultcorrin:,:ultrobinf:,:ultbyleth: &:ultwiifittrainer:)

:ultdoc: is afraid of :ultkirby: after seeing him do his dowb b, when asked why by :ultluigi: he replied "it's a stone Luigi"

When not taking part in the battles, the assist trophy characters watch from the sidelines and cheer people on. Most of them, anyway. Waluigi on the other hand just chooses one person each match to boo and mock the entire battle.

Nikki and Vince each create pictures based on the battle, Vince's are a lot better but it's not a contest and they're each pleased at what the other has come up with.

Samurai Goroh usually starts trying to take bets.

Ashley tries to act like she's not interested, but usually does find something enjoyable in each match. And sometimes she giggles when a person gets hurt really bad.
