"I am a soldier. I've served my country for twenty years. But if I'm captured or killed, I know that nobody will come to rescue me. I won't even get a funeral. Because the nation I protect can never admit that I exist. So my death would go unremarked, my bones would go unclaimed. I don't know if that day will come... but I do know that it must not be today. I am invisible. I am relentless. I am Sam Fisher. I am... a Splinter Cell."


Q: Who is Sam Fisher?

A: Sam Fisher (LCDR, USN-Ret.) is a former employee of Third Echelon, a top-secret black bag operation sub-branch within the National Security Agency (NSA) and a former member of its subsequent "Splinter Cell" program. Sam is currently the commander/head field operative of Fourth Echelon, a newly created covert special operations/counter-terrorism group that only reports to the President of the United States. Fisher is a master in the art of stealth, having been trained in various undercover and covert infiltration tactics. He not only specializes in night-time combat but in close-quarters combat in urban warfare and fieldcraft-related skills as well. Sam is 177 cm (5 ft 10 in) tall, weighs 78 kg (170 pounds),[1] has greying, brown-black hair and green eyes. He still has an athletic build physique for a man in his early 60s. He was the first person to be recruited as a field agent of the "Splinter Cell" program, Third Echelon's highly clandestine black ops project. A highly decorated veteran of JSOC's DEVGRU, and the CIA's Special Activities Division, Fisher is a master in the art of stealth, having been trained in various undercover and covert infiltration tactics.


Q: Why should Sam Fisher join the all-star greats of Smash?

A: Sam Fisher is a classic video game icon, and is easily the top pick for a Tom Clancy rep. He's one of the most beloved Ubisoft characters, and while he hasn't been seen in a while, Ubisoft is on great terms with Nintendo after the release of Mario and Rabbids for Switch. It only makes sense that they would bring back San similar to Rare did with Banjo, Kazooie, Gruntilda, Jinjo and the rest. And with Sam Fisher could come a ton of other Tom Clancy franchise music and character cameos which would be particulary exciting for a Clancyhead like me. The Splinter Cell series is some of the great stealth games of all time, and how cool would it be to see Sam face off verse Snake on a classic stage like Temple.


Q: What would his moveset look like?

A: Well, let me break it down.

Sam Fisher uses Krav Maga which is a kind of self defense meaning "Contact Combat" which was developed by Israel in the 1940s ,Israeli special forces used them as a way of defense and offence. Sam Fisher has reached the advanced level of 3B under the tutelage of his instructor Katia who later became his girlfriend but was later accidentally killed. Sam is also intimately familiar with Israeli weapons


:GCB:: Sam shoots SC-20K M.A.W.S. Assault Rifle (FN F2000 5.56x45mm Assault Rifle) with a suppressor

:GCU::GCB:: Sam shoots his SC Pistol 5.7mm (FN Five-seveN Tactical model) with a suppressor directly above him

:GCD::GCB:: Sam pulls out his SC Protector Combat Knife (Gerber Guardian Double Edge Knife) and his "Panther's Claw" Karambit (Combat Karambit Knife) and performs a dual-wielding blade attack.

:GCR::GCB:: Sam pulls out his Five-Seven FDE 5.7mm (FN Five-seveN USG model) with Flat Dark Earth color scheme and a modified compensator and blasts his foe.


Of course Sam is very acrobatic and agile and can perform all kind of jumping manuevers, his most famous being the Split Wall Jump but alas I can see no way to fit that into Smash. But it would likely be no problem at all to create many "Jumping" attacks for him. If you have some ideas, post them in the comments :)

Special moves aside, not only is Sam trained in Krav Maga but he is also trained in
  • Advanced Weapons Training
  • SEAL Qualified
    • SCUBA Training
    • SAO Qualification
    • SQT Training
  • HAHO and HALO Training
  • Krav Maga Training (Level 3B/Black-Belt)
  • Muay Thai Training
  • Russian Systema Training
  • Jiu-jitsu Training
  • Filpino Martial Arts (Kali/Eskrima) Training
  • Center Axis Relock Training

What games was he in on a Nintendo
Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell (2002) (GBA, Gamecube)
Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell: Pandora Tomorrow (2004) (GBA, Gamecube)
Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory (2005) (Gamecube, DS, 3DS)
Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell: Double Agent (2006) (Gamecube, Wii)
Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell 3D (2011) (3DS)

This is the Tom Clancy logo...... So for a SMASH Series Logo I was thinking it would look something like this.

Sorry for saying this, but wasn't his series as a book first? Or is his series unrelated to Tom Clancy's books?

Incorrect... Sam Fisher and Splinter Cell started as Ubisoft game, not as a book. Tom Clancys name is just attached to a lot of stuff because he is a brilliant man in the same vein as Sid Meier and the like.


Not to mention Sam Fisher has been gone from the public eye for YEARS.... him making his grand return in SMASH of all places would cement his place in video game history and ensure more Splinter Cell games to come from Ubisoft in the following years.

Technically speaking the Splinter Cell games take place in the same universe as the other Tom Clancy's games. The first of which was Rainbow Six, which was based on a novel. However, Sam Fisher and the Splinter Cell games are wholly original.

I think a good comparison is how Shin Megami Tensei started as a book series but by the time they got to Persona 5 it was so different that it just counts as a videogame.

Actually, SHIN Megami Tensei and Persona, are not related by the book Digital Devil Story: Megami Tensei. They (SMT/Persona) are their own entity, and have nothing related to the book itself. You can say that Splinter Cell fits in that criteria as well.

I'm really nostalgic for the 2000s, which was Splinter Cell's heyday. I really wouldn't mind Sam Fisher since I actually know the character by default.

Thought I would update with a quote from my favorite Splinter Cell game:

"It has been said that something as small as the flutter of a butterfly's wing can ultimately cause a typhoon halfway around the world." -Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory

Tbh, I’m pretty sure if Sam Fisher were to get in, that he would have the same treatment as Snake. Being young.
Yes, and I think he would be wearing his iconic goggles, this is more of an "alternate costume" such as Joker has for his student outfit.

By the way, I've updated the OP with a list of Nintendo games that Sam Fisher starred in.

Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell (2002) (GBA, Gamecube)
Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell: Pandora Tomorrow (2004) (GBA, Gamecube)
Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory (2005) (Gamecube, DS, 3DS)
Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell: Double Agent (2006) (Gamecube, Wii)
Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell 3D (2011) (3DS)
Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell: Blacklist (2013) (Wii U)

That's 6 games but more like 8 when you consider how different the GBA ports were from the Gamecube games. 8 games on a Nintendo is a lot more then Bayonetta or even Shulk.
