Mewtwo (Japanese: ミュウツー Mewtwo) is a playable character in the Super Smash Bros. series. It was playable in Super Smash Bros. Melee for the Nintendo GameCube, was absent from Super Smash Bros. Brawl, but will return as dowloadable content for Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS/Wii U.

Super Smash Bros. Melee

Mewtwo is an unlockable character and can be unlocked by playing over 20 hours of single player and multiplayer matches or playing at least 700 Melee matches. Its main stage is Pokémon Stadium.

Mewtwo has an unusual combination of attributes. Unlike other characters, its throws are exceedingly powerful, capable of KO'ing at similar percentages as smash attacks. It also boasts several fast attacks that can be linked together for simple and effective combos, and possesses an exceptional recovery. However, it is rather light, moves and falls slowly, and is a large target, making it easy to combo back. It also has difficulties KO'ing opponents - while its throws are strong, it needs to get grabs first, and its other KO moves are either slow or have short range.

Trophy information

Classic Mode

A genetically created Pokémon, Mewtwo is the result of many long years of research by a solitary scientist. Although Mewtwo was cloned from the genes of the legendary Pokémon Mew, its size and character are far different than its ancestor. Its battle abilities have been radically heightened, making it ruthless.

Adventure Mode

As Mewtwo relies mostly on its powerful brain, there are times when it scarcely uses its arms and legs. Since Mewtwo spends much of its time floating, it flies far when struck. Shadow Ball traces a jagged path once released; the longer Mewtwo holds it, the more powerful it becomes. Mewtwo uses Confusion to spin its foes around.

All-Star Mode

Mewtwo is definitely not a speedy character, but its ESP-powered grab and throw moves are comparatively strong. Teleport has a short range, but doesn't leave it open to attack. It's best used as an escape move during disturbances. Mewtwo can daze a foe if it makes eye contact and uses Disable; the move is useless unless Mewtwo is facing its enemy.

Super Smash Bros. Brawl

While Mewtwo is no longer a playable character, it makes an appearance in the game as a trophy.

Although Mewtwo is not a playable character, there are many empty files with its name, suggesting that it was originally meant to be playable.

Trophy information

A Genetic Pokémon. This legendary Pokémon was based on a recombination of Mew's DNA, created by a scientist after years of research. However, Mewtwo greatly differs from Mew in both size and personality and it is said to have the most twisted and savage heart among all Pokémon. Mewtwo has incredibly high combat abilities and uses Psychic-type attacks.

Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS/Wii U

Mewtwo will be returning as a downloadable bonus character. It was confirmed to be a playable character during the Super Smash Bros. for Wii U: 50-Fact Extravaganza Nintendo Direct presentation on October 23rd, 2014. It will be free for players who have bought both the 3DS and Wii U versions and have registered both to Club Nintendo by March 31st, 2015. However, Mewtwo will also be available for a small fee if one did not buy both or games or did not register both to Club Nintendo. It is currently in development and will not be available until spring 2015.

Mewtwo also appears in both versions as a normal trophy, and both versions of Mega Mewtwo appear as a single trophy in the Wii U version.

Trophy information



Created from modified Mew DNA, Mewtwo was designed to be the ultimate Pokémon. It didn't take on any of Mew's kinder traits and only uses its intelligence to destroy its enemies. it seems. Perhaps it just feels frightened or even tormented, and that's why it lashes out. Whatever the reason, Mewtwo is not to be messed with.
