Wii Fit Trainer Girl Joins Super Smash Bros. (No, Really)

By Ishaan . June 11, 2013 . 11:39am

Nintendo said they’d make a special announcement at 11:40am PST in Los Angeles today, for which they asked the press to gather around. We’re at the event right now, and Nintendo just announced that the Wii Fit trainer girl will be in the new Super Smash Bros. games.


All of her moves will be fitness-based, making her a good pick against opponents like Bowser.

  • VitaminC

    Give us Sveta from Golden Sun: Dark Dawn if you want to add more female characters.

    • TheExile285

      or that chick from Bayonetta :P

      • You mean Bayonetta?

    • ronin4life

      Lyndis from FE

  • puchinri

    I just saw and mentioned that in the open thread. That is pretty exciting for me, and I don’t know why. x’D
    I feel like I’ll main her though~.

    edit : Having just watched her trailer. . . I have to wonder, how and why she did not exist earlier so we could have her so much sooner? It’s just perfect. Too perfect.

  • NTaiyokun

    Ishaan, please tell me you’re drunk…

    • TheExile285

      lol what are talking about? he posted a pic as proof

      • NTaiyokun

        What if the camera was drunk too?

        • TheExile285


  • AuraGuyChris

    And here I thought the Villager was a Joke Character…
    …Wait, finally! Our newest female fighter!
    (Dear god, what did just happen here?)

    • TheExile285

      troll character confirmed?

    • She has her fans. Plus you can beat her up if you wish. Not that I’m advising violence against digital monochrome and green women. Speaking of monochrome… Take awake the mono and the e…

      • Training mode with her. Just to beat her up since she is so O_o. lol

    • VIllager is sweet not a joke. This however is a joke.

  • Natat

    Uh… what?

    No, wait… what?

  • CaptainBlueFuzzy

    They can have a stick figure for all I care but just please, put Lucina or some other Fire Emblem Awakening character in.

    • Josephl64

      If I can’t have my Lyndis, I’ll be willing to settle for Lucina

  • Shadowman

    HA! Very funny.

  • XypherCode

    I can’t possibly absorb all the epicness of this news. XD

  • Kaihedgie
  • MrSirFeatherFang

    well that’s pretty unique and weird. I find it funny hahaha.

  • Byas

    I don’t know if I should laugh or cry… This is so random that it’s funny.

  • RaikageV
  • Daniel Banks

    The next character revealed will be Cooking Mama.

  • ShawnOtakuSomething

    Why………?? What?….. Nintendo you high?

  • FFmax

    The fuq?

  • J_Joestar

    New Top Tier character!
    *trying hard to not LOL at work*

  • Wow… uh what? lol

  • DesmaX

    “ehrrr… guys… new characher for smash brothas?”

    “eh… I dunoo… er… Wii Fit girl, or something??”

    “Yeah, ok”

  • Paul Wright

    Check it out, She kicks ass

  • Zonic505

    Okay, not gonna lie. Took a while for the news to sink in (saw IGN mention it, had to do a Google search to make sure they weren’t jokin’), but damn it, I find this hilarious for some reason.


  • Minos

    Well, that girl has sold like 40 million copies, she deserves it.

  • fireemblembeast

    ⊙▂⊙ …
    If she can be playable, then I think we should get to play as Sakurai, too. Seriously, whose idea was this?!

    • yea i cant believe that this nintendo crossover fighting game isnt taking itself more seriously…. o.o

      • stomp

        It has never been that serious. Fans just thought it was and want it to be.

  • fireemblembeast

    Is she going to throw a medicine ball at us?

  • SetzerGabbiani

    I like that Sakurai is having fun with this game. Some people don’t have a sense of humor, lol!

    • I see it as him getting pretty creative as well, actually. I wonder if he’s looking at some of the more challenging suggestions and trying to find ways to make them into viable fighters.

      I’m really wondering how she’s gonna play. It’s gonna be weird enough just seeing her move around on screen XD

    • Daniel Jeanbaptiste

      I know right.

  • ronin4life

    But if other possible charactes were passed/not even considered that should definately be in the game, I will be pissed.

  • XiaomuArisu

    …….so…..where is Lucina?

    • Daniel Jeanbaptiste

      Fire Emblem cast don’t revealed early on

  • Brandt Mackay

    No, just no

  • Ava1on

    I never asked for this.

    • XiaomuArisu

      I could make a Deus Ex joke….nah.
      I hope your Avatar will be playable

  • AuraGuyChris

    Here. Her official video reveal.

    I’m laughing my butt off.

  • Spirit Macardi

    Still a better choice than Pac-Man would be, since at least she does stuff x3

  • iamtehultimatepwnage .

    omg out of all the awesome nintendo cahracters -,- now i awesome character wont make the cut, just so lame nintendo

    • smashbrolink

      Bright side: That’s one less slot that WORSE character choices than her can’t take up, either.
      Slow your roll, bro. We’ve still got slots left. You’ll likely see someone you want.

  • zferolie

    Her offical trailer. She looks epic


    EDIT: Gah, ninja’d

  • SuperSailorV

    yoga pants DLC please

  • i love it!!! while i called the AC villager, they are not being predictable, which i find amazing. i cant wait to yoga people to death!

  • Thanh Tu

    For all of you guys complaining, you’re taking it a bit too seriously.Smash bros has had novelty/joke/silly characters before. ROB from Brawl? G&W from Melee. You guys were cool with them adding a stick figure and a novelty accessory that’s not even a VG character before, so c’mon, it’s not that bad. Not to mention, it’s one character. There’s a ton of other characters coming in as well so don’t let one character kill the whole thing for you. Plus who knows, maybe she’ll be really fun to use. you never know.

  • James Enk


  • You know… after playing wii fit I always thought she even gave ZSS a run for her money, honestly! :O I’ve been trying to find a screenshot from Wii Fit’s yoga to illustrate my point but… I can’t find one! Not even fanart. I’m surprised more people didn’t explore the replay pose mode during downward dog…. >.>’

    Now all we need is Krystal. ZSS, Wii Fit Trainer, Krystal, and… Snake? XD Put them all into a stage like Norfair or Brinstar Depths… mmm, that’s a whole lot of hot… 8)

    (It’s true, no fighting game series can avoid the ecchi bug! Mwahaha >:3)

    • XiaomuArisu

      He will show them why he is called SOLID SNAKE!

    • Krystal would be so awesome.

  • Alicemagic

    dear sakurai


    best regards

    • Testsubject909

      Because the lulz.

  • Love that animation for Mario, Kirby and Link trying to do footstands.

    Also: noticing Kid Icarus: Uprising and Punch-Out!! themed stages in there.

    The gameplay, if that gameplay is actually representative of the final product, looks an awful lot like Brawl… hmmmm.

  • NightzeroAX

    Looks like a legit troll character.

  • Kaihedgie

    Wait wait. Who’s gonna replace her in the 3DS version?

    • AuraGuyChris

      Nobody. Characters are the same in both versions.

      • Kaihedgie

        She has no 3DS screenshots on the official website, that’s why I asked

      • Zimmer Remmiz

        Actually Sakurai only said that both version have the same number of characters, although I do expect you to be correct, that technically isn’t confirmed…

  • Go2hell66

    but why?

    • Kaihedgie

      Because it’s fun >:3

    • XiaomuArisu

      She looks fun…but I hope she will be fun

  • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yQB8cJTCgrI&feature=youtu.be
    Trailer. At least she looked easier to turn into a fighting game character than Phoenix Wright. Her moves look just as unpractical as Tekken’s Lili but animated by Netherrealm Studios.

    • XiaomuArisu

      Train him!

    • Testsubject909

      Hey! Phoenix Wright was awesome as a fighting character.

      • At least it looks like WFT is fighting though. A fitness instructor is more plausible than a goofy lawyer in a fighting game anyways no matter how creepy she looks.

        • She looks FIT! The Villager, however, looks like someone from a Chibified Slasher Flick.

  • Foxeh Shihōin


  • Shinji Kazuya

    I just want them to announce Chrom. Then everything will be as it should!

  • DemonicX

    I…uh…..alright then. >_<

  • Daniel Jeanbaptiste

    We need a Mixture of Fun, Troll, Hardcore, Bad-ass characters

  • SerendipityX

    Considering how popular Wii Fit was and how much money it brought into the bank for Ninty, I’m not entirely surprised. XDDD LOL SO MUCH

  • kyubey777

    I can’t stop laughing omg

  • Symbol de Au

    Good against Bowser? Lawl they’re basically calling him fat. Probably has something to do with that Fawful feast incident.

  • Kuro Neko

    Let’s get fired up. One! Two! Three!

  • British_Otaku

    I’m looking forward to when people rage over Wii Fit getting a character in when Ganondorf is that close to using Captain Falcon’s moveset.

  • MasterScrub

    Clearly Wii Fit Trainer is going to be the most balanced character in the game.

  • rurin


    actually I’m kind of looking forward to what SSB4 tournament battles will look like with this character…

  • Learii

    lol ok now this the best thing I never heard lol

  • Rasputing

    Who came up with this? And, who decided to unveil her at E3, right after a huge information drought? Well, we got two good characters I suppose… Brawl had five good ones at its unveiling, though.

    • smashbrolink

      Look on the bright side; if you hate her, you can now beat the crap out of her.
      Can’t lose with that.

      • Rasputing

        Yeah, you can. I don’t hate her, I hate the fact that she got in. Sakurai already said that he was limiting newcomers. With her inclusion, that means someone else isn’t getting in.

        • smashbrolink

          Well, it also means that that’s one less space for even CRAPPIER characters to get in, too.
          Silver lining to everything, my friend.^_-

  • Haseyo

    If G&W can function, I see no reason she can’t. I’m going to have lots of fun with her.

  • Linhua

    … this is BALLZ… XD … first character i’ve ever been more interested in getting owned by… versus actually doing the owning WITH her.

    … this is crazy, I know, but I am some kind of okay with this… lol.

  • Tonton Ramos

    In Smash Bros. the words “this character is a waste of spot” is non-existent here. Go ahead Nintendo put any random character you want at least I’m happy enough :)

  • roydgriffin

    Wait wait wait…
    Think of the possibilities!

    WII FIT TRAINER KIRBY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
