A huge thing on my mind ever since the beginning of smash 4's development, how tall are these fools?

so many inconsistencies between canon heights like Snake being taller than Samus, and Greninja towering Charizard. Mario being shorter than sonic even though it should be the other way around, King Dedede being huge despite actually being only around 3 feet! it's a mess.

ever since these thought's ive wanted to measure these character in their smash counterparts, thankfully several factors have made this much easier

1. Ridley's smash height has been confirmed to be around 4 metres tall (13 feet for the americans)

2. Mario's CANON height is 5 feet tall

3. the new training stage in smash ultimate has a grid allowing for better measurements

as of right now however the game is not out so i made a premature height chart of ridley and mario and...

height.png


so far it seems that mario at 5 feet makes ridley shorter than 13 feet, but if ridley were to have his neck straight, he most certainly would be!

so now i've decided beginning today i will try to give a completely accurate height chart of ever smash bros character ever!

if you guys want to help, it would be much appreciated

Little Mac is 5'6"; Samus is 5'1"; Luigi, Wario and Yoshi are 5'9"; Peach and Daisy are 6'0"; Rosalina is 7'3"; Kirby and Meta Knight are 8 inches; and R.O.B. is 6 1/2 inches tall.

Welp, at least it looks like there is some unit of measurements on the training stage assuming the tiny squares are a centimeter and the bigger ones are meters.

as of right now, i wasn't able to find a clear measure, once the game is out it'll be much easier to see what measurements the stage uses :3

Samus used to be 6 foot 3, but I think she's shrank over time.

Simon Belmont is just slightly over 6 feet tall

The Wii Punchout lists Little Mac at 5 foot 7, but the NES punchout had him at 4 foot 8.

Cloud Strife is somewhere around 5'6" or 5'7" depending on your source.

Bowser is ... somewhere between 5 feet and 50 feet tall depending on which game you want to go by.

How is Wario 5’9” when Mario is taller.

And no way little Mac is taller than Samus
The Game Theorists video on character heights is where I got these numbers from.

It used pixel measurements to figure out Mario's canon height, 155 cm or 5'1", from the Luigi's Balloon World update for Super Mario Odyssey. Next, it was used as a ruler for other characters' heights. Their models from Mario Kart Wii were used for this.

Most measurements I see for Bowser place in at around 8-9 feet tall when he isn't a kaiju

Shulk is 5’6 iirc

According to this, Marth is roughly 6’1. Lucina is slightly shorter, if I had to guess, she’d be 5’9.

Initial sources listed Samus as 6’3, but more recent sources say she’s 5’5, so I really don’t know

For guesstimates: Captain Falcon has to be at least 6’2, and Palutena is most likely like...6’8.

DeDeDe and Pikachu would be around the same size.

That's gonna be something to contemplate all night.
it is weird to think that in their own universes they'd almost be the same height

King Dedede in smash though seems to be like 7 feet tall maybe less
and pikachu im guessing is around 3 feet tall

Ganondorf is officially stated to be 7'6.
But if you compare his size to link ingame you end up with something closer to 9'2.

Yeah well I hate to break it to you but The Game Theorists are cancer. A lot of the theories put out by them can be brought down in less than five minutes of looking into it.

To be fair the game theorists got a good rounded height for the characters

However those numbers don’t quite matter for smash because the mario characters’ heights differ greatly in smash

I think olimar is like.... 3/4 of the diameter of a gamecube disc.

In the game booklet attached to pikmin 1 + 2, it showed a little picture of the two and how big pikmin/olimar are.

Isn't K. Rool being 6'2 kinda lowballing him considering he is usually taller than DK
