I'm very curious on what characters Smash players will put on their team for Squad Strike. I've made a poll for interesting 3 vs 3 team combinations.

Please vote on which of the team combinations I have put on the poll you like and reply with what unique team you will make. So far with 71 confirmed fighters, there are 57155 possible combinations for 3 VS 3 and OVER 13 MILLION for 5 VS 5. I'll be focusing on 3 Vs 3 for this thread.

If you think of any more interesting 3 Vs 3 teams. Tell me and I might add them to the poll.

For 3v3, probably the following:

:ultgreninja::ultfalco::ultbowserjr:

For 5v5, probably the following:
:ultgreninja:Simon:ultbowserjr::4miisword::ultfalco:

Man, I hope they have these modes available in Online play as well...would make some very fun times online and also make online Crew battles SO much easier!

Side note, why do we still not have charcter mini's or w/e of Simon, Richter, Chrom, Dark Samus, and King K Rool yet?

Team Ideas are the most fun of this for me. I chose villains, because I need my King in the mix. Speaking of...


Team King: K Rool, Dedede, Bowser
Team Samus: Samus, Dark, and Zero
Team Psychic: Mewtwo, Lucas, Shulk
Team Magic: Zelda, Robin, Bayonetta
Team Captain (haha!): Olimar, Falcon, K Rool
Team Avatar: Wii Fit, Pokemon Trainer, Robin
Team Celestial: Rosalina, Palutena, Pit
Team Group: Ice Climbers, Duck Hunt, Pokemon Trainer
Team Speed: Sonic, Fox, Falcon
Team OG: Mr GW, Pacman, Duck Hunt
Team Junior: Bowser Jr, Pichu, Young Link
Team Manmade: ROB, Megaman, Mewtwo
Team Wings: Ridley, Metaknight, Pit
Team Reptile: Ridley, K Rool, Yoshi


A few of the teams, by name, even have a couple of options. Switch in Ganondorf for Zelda, for example. Team WIngs could have Charizard. Team Speed could have Sheik...
Soon we can have a Robot team.

Added your ideas to the Poll, along with 2 more:
Team Fight the Future: (2 FE: Awakening Characters + Shulk)
Team Stealth: (Sheik, Snake, Greninja)

Just so you know. You are allowed to change your vote should you see a new team that you like

:ultyoshi::ultkirby::ultpacman:

Bottomless pits
I think Wario might also fit in this categorization.
And to be fair. Yoshi isnt a bottomless pit... in fact, he is maybe the only character wherein we actually see the intake and the... release.
Which reminds me of how odd it is that his eggs function as his poop.

team immortal: ganondorf, dark samus, ridley, bowser

i mean, despite the fact that dark samus did eventually suffer a permanent death, she was immortal as long as phazon existed... and ridley technically dies alot, i suppose, but he always comes back in some form or another.

i suppose bowser could also be considered immortal... i mean, he's been dropped into lava, and even came back as a skeleton... if that doesn't scream "immortal", i dunno what does.

i might be forgetting some other possible choices, still kinda tired.

I think perhaps that is preferable to the gestational horror that it could otherwise imply.

Team Avatar since it's the only one with Wii Fit. I'd make a squad called Team Health and that would feature Wii-Fit as the captain, Male Wii-Fit as 2nd in command, Ryu, Little Mac, and Captain Falcon.

For 3v3, my team will likely be the following, in this order:

1) King K. Rool
2) ROB
3) Ice Climbers

KKR is #1 as he is my most anticipated newcomer and the one I want most practice with. ROB is my Smash 4 main and likely my strongest. ICs is an old Brawl main.

K Rool and ROB at 1 and 2 also serve the purpose of having likely suicide throws on stages with moving platforms.

Added those along with 6 more:
Team in the Ring (Little Mac, King Dedede, King K. Rool)
Team Roundness (Kirby, Jigglypuff, Pac-Man) [Maybe Meta Knight]
Team Yellow (Pikachu or Pichu, Wario (in his overalls), Pac-Man)
Team Headband (3 of these: Ike, Snake, Ryu, Richter)
Red Caps (Mario, Ness, Diddy Kong)
Team Orange (Samus, Daisy, Orange Inkling girl)

The Poll is getting rather big so I've decided to allow multiple votes.

I just love TLOZ so much, so I had to go with The 3 Links. Otherwise, I would have went with Team Stealth.

Yo, you should add Wario to the sex appeal list.

Joking aside, I think Bayonetta would fit the purple squad list, since you did add Mewtwo for his purple attacks, and Bayonetta is known for having purple coloring.

For my team of five, all my mains from Brawl.

:ulticeclimbers::ultmarth::ultpokemontrainer::ultsnake::ultwolf:

It felt awful to see 4/5 were cut from the next game, so I want to play them again super badly. Alternatively, I could try the newcomers we have already seen.

:ultinkling::ultridley:Simon, Chrom, and King K. Rool.

I would have picked Team Headband if not for the fact that I cannot tolerate Snake or Ryu's playstyle. Now if Bandana Dee were confirmed...

:ultpit::ultpalutena::ultbowser: as far as mains go.

If I can make Samus work over Bowser it's definitely gonna be :ultpalutena::ultpit: with :ultsamus:/:ultzss: (whichever I can use better), though I feel my first set is more balanced with a heavyweight added to the mix.

in the end, I cannot vote either of those choices as they do not fit me.


Come to think of it, you could add "Sister/Sibling" Franchises to make :ultpit::ultsamus::ultzss: or :ultpit::ultpalutena::ultsamus: possible... or the 1986 trio that is :ultpit::ultsamus::ultlink:...

I've added your 1986 Trio suggestion along with:
1986 Girls (Zelda, Palutena, Samus/ZSS)

Wondering when I was an edgelord.
Oooh, so many options! I've got....a few ideas for teams.

Team Mercenaries: Ike, Fox, and Wolf.

Team Bounty Hunters: Samus, Captain Falcon, and Wolf.

Team Space Voyagers: Samus, Star Fox, Olimar/Alph

Super Mario Stars: Mario/Doctor Mario, Luigi, Yoshi or Peach

Powerful Princesses: Any combination of Zelda, Peach, Daisy, Lucina, Female Corrin, and/or Wendy O. Koopa

Princes of Power: Any combination of Marth, Roy, Chrom, Corrin, and/or Bowser Junior. (Ike and Robin are not in any way royalty. Well, Ike is in no way royalty, but Robin doesn't quite count for certain reasons)

Team Thunder: Pikachu and/or Pichu, Robin, and Luigi (because he's the Green Thunder)

Team Melee Returnee: Pichu, Young Link, Roy/Dr. Mario/Mewtwo.

Team Brawl Returnee: Snake, Wolf, Pokemon Trainer. (Themed specifically around Melee and Brawl's newcomers who were cut in the very next game, so Smash 4 doesn't count for the Melee vets and Lucas technically came right back, albeit as DLC.)

Team Kid Hero: Young or Toon Link, Ness or Lucas, Inkling or Pichu.

I absolutely love team-ups, especially crossover team ups. Of all of Smash Ultimate's new modes, I think I'm most excited for Smashdown and Squad Strike. This game is going to be so amazing!

Also, I feel like some team names should be different. I think we should call the three Links' team "Triforce of Courage", and a Pokemon-themed team should have something like Champion Trainer for a title.

3v3: :ultyounglink::ultpokemontrainer::ultinkling:
5v5: :ultgnw::ultpokemontrainer::ultyounglink::ultinkling::ultvillager:

If you can't tell I like to have annoying projectiles and lots of recovery options. If any of these fighters seem to not pull their weight I will probably pull in :ultridley: or one of the Belmonts for power and projectile usage.

Love the idea of the triforce trinity :ultlink::ultganondorf::ultzelda:/:ultsheik:

Pretty well balanced too in many ways.

Sheik could be analt for Zelda.



Also... Team Bomber: :ultlink:/:ultyounglink:/:ulttoonlink: - :ultsnake: - :ultsamus:
