Super Smash Bros. Ultimate has made its mark in the gaming world and has become the most popular Super Smash Bros. title since Super Smash Bros. Brawl released in 2008. There are quite a few fighters from both the base game as well as plenty of fighters included in the Fighter Pass and Fighter Pass 2 DLCs for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. In case you were wondering how many fighters are in the game – 78. There are 78 fighters currently in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate and I put together a list of every single one of them and the games that they originally come from. While you may already know that Mario is from Super Mario Bros. (or you may not!) you may not know that Mr. Game and Watch is from an older handheld Nintendo game literally called Game & Watch! I had no idea that he had his own game, I thought that he was just a random guy. So, let’s get right into this list of every single fighter currently available in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate!
