Smash Ultimate is finally here. The celebration of everything Nintendo (and Nintendo adjacent) has launched to a very warm reception, too. But fans will likely need weeks just to unlock the game’s massive roster. And that’s not all. What are you supposed to do once you actually manage to free every character from the cold clutches of locked and time gated content?
Smash Ultimate promises that “everyone is here!” And that’s no lie. The game sports 74 different playable characters at launch — including every single previous character from the super-franchise and a bunch of fresh faces. That’s not even including the glut of DLC fighters, assist trophies, and more. There’s so much that no one person could possibly keep track of everything. That’s why we’ve compiled a guide to every single character.

Wii Fit Trainer is a delightfully bizarre member of the Smash Ultimate roster. The character doesn’t “fight” so much as they exercise so hard that it knocks foes around the stage. Their mannequin-like appearance might also add some intimidation factor.
According to the official Wii Fit Trainer description…
A fighter that attacks with healthy moves like stretching and yoga poses. You can pick between male and female versions. Charging up Sun Salutation all the way recovers a bit of health!
Sun Salutation (B) – Charges a ball of energy. A second button press launches it. Heals slightly when fully charged.
Header (Side + B) – Heads a soccer ball at opponents. A second button press heads the soccer ball early.
Super Hoop (Up + B) – Gyrates into the air, striking opponents. Floating is possible with rapid button presses.
Deep Breathing (Down + B) – Inhales deeply. Can heal, boost movements, and increase launch power with good timing.
Wii Fit (Final Smash) – Wii Fit Trainer sends an army of yoga pose silhouettes flying out. These silhouettes grow in size and push foes away, even off the stage! Foes that are close when this move begins may be hit multiple times in a row.
Strengths & Weaknesses
Fitness! As you’d expect, Wii Fit Trainer wants to stay in close range, but they can pull a fast one on you with their projectiles as well. Their most crucial tool is Down-B, or Deep Breathing — a short breathing minigame that, if completed, boosts damage and overall power for a short time. It lasts a little longer and there’s less cooldown after failing, so you can go into Super Trainer Mode way more often and make use of Wii Fit Trainer’s slam potential.
Their attacks are a little stubby and difficult to land in succession, though, so expect to put some time in if you want to master the living mannequin horror that is Wii Fit Trainer. Deep Breathing is the key to the game, but also means you’re a little less powerful without it active, so manage that cooldown and play at your own tempo.
Wii Fit Trainer is generally more expressive — and more “human” — than in the previous Super Smash Bros. They’re also less brightly colored, which seems like an across-the-board change in Smash Ultimate.
Gameplay-wise, Wii Fit Trainer is nimbler this time around: both in the air and on the ground. Their deep breathing exercises are also much improved. That’s great, seeing as how important they are to the fighter’s effectiveness.
Wii Fit Trainer is just as pale and strangely soulless as ever. Changing their costume lets you swap between their masculine and feminine forms, as well as choose colors.
