Villager (むらびと, Murabito) is a playable character in the Super Smash Bros. series that represents the player in the Animal Crossing series. They first appeared in Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS / Wii U and reappeared in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.

Their formal reveal was during E3 2013 and the subsequent reveal of Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS / Wii U, being one of three characters (alongside Mega Man and Wii Fit Trainer) showcased during the event.[1] Villager is classified as Fighter #45.

Appearance[edit]

Four playable reskins

Villager is heavily based off on City Folk's player design, with the default male Villager design based from City Folk promotional material. Subsequently, the default female Villager is also based from City Folk promotional material. The rest of Villager's alternate costumes features different hairstyles, eye pupils, and clothing, in light of the Animal Crossing series emphasis on player customization.

Unlock requirements[edit]

In Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, Villager is an unlockable fighter; as such they will need to be unlocked by completing either of the following requirements:

  • Every ten minutes, a new challenger will appear in a specific order. Villager is the 6th fighter to be unlocked.
  • To unlock Villager in Classic Mode, the player must complete Classic Mode under Pikachu's branch.
  • To unlock Villager in World of Light, the player has to fight Villager on the left-hand side of the crossroad during the beginning of the mode. If Villager is freed, the other fighters (Marth and Sheik) will have to be unlocked after clearing a boss.

With the exception of the last option, the player would then need to fight Villager on Smashville.

Moveset[edit]

Villager's moveset is a combination of various mechanics throughout the Animal Crossing series, as well as references to other games. Their neutral attack has Villager using boxing gloves to attack their opponents, referencing the NES game Punch-Out!. For each of their tilts, they either use an umbrella, wave a stick, or pull weed. When they perform a dash attack, they'll drop a potted sapling onto their opponents.

For each of their smash attacks, they'll either pull a bowling ball, summon a Fountain Firework, or dig their opponents with a shovel. For their aerial attacks, they fire a slingshot for their backward and forward aerial, and swing one to three turnips for their up and down aerial. Finally, for their grab, they use a net to catch their opponent.

Special moves[edit]

Move Image Description
Pocket SSBU Neutral B Villager.png Villager's neutral special. Any projectiles that is thrown in front of Villager are grabbed and pocketed. If pressed again, Villager either grabs the projectile in their hand to be able to throw it for later or immediately throw it. Status items such as Superspicy Curry and recovery items such as Food will immediately be used. In Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, the Villager is able to see what item they pocketed, and may keep the item in their pocket indefinitely.
Lloid Rocket SSBU Side B Villager.png Villager's side special. They summon a rocket resembling the design of Lloid which will shoot forward to hit any players. Villager can also ride on the rocket as a horizontal recovery move.
Balloon Trip SSBU Up B Villager.png Villager's up special. Based on the Nintendo video game Balloon Fight, Villager will take to the sky using two balloons color-coded to the player's color. It can be used for a certain amount of time before Villager falls from the sky. Other fighter can attack the balloons to prevent Villager from their recovery.
Timber SSBU Down B Villager Extra.pngSSBU Down B Villager.png Villager's down special. Villager first plants a sapling, then uses a Watering Can to grow the sapling to a tree, and finally the Villager pulls out an Axe to chop down the tree, which when dropped deals damage to other bystanding fighters. The Watering Can can be used to push fighters away from the player, while the Axe can deal significant damage to others.

On occasion, the chopped tree may drop a woodchip will drop for additional, but weak damage. The tree may also drop fruits for the player to recovery their damage.

The following custom special moves are only in Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS / Wii U:

Default Move Image Description
Pocket Garden SSB4 Neutral B Custom 1 Villager.png Villager's custom neutral special. Not only does it pocket projectile, any nearby opponents will be hit with a Flower effect that causes the opponent to continuously gain damage.
Pocket Plus SSB4 Neutral B Custom 2 Villager.png Villager's custom neutral special. There is increased range that Villager can grab any projectiles from, but the pocketed projectile will deal less damage as of result.
Lloid Rocket Liftoff Lloid SSB4 Side B Custom 1 Villager.png Villager's custom side special. Instead of moving forward, the Lloid Rocket instead lifts upwards after a short period of time, granting Villager another vertical recovery.
Pushy Lloid SSB4 Side B Custom 2 Villager.png Villager's custom side special. The Lloid Rocket is larger and will push fighters around before exploding.
Balloon Trip Extreme Balloon Trip SSB4 Up B Custom 1 Villager.png Villager's custom up special. The balloon explodes if burst by any opponents, dealing damage and giving Villager a boost when recovering. However, this move reduces the distance Villager can make vertically and horizontally.
Balloon High Jump SSB4 Up B Custom 2 Villager.png Villager's custom up special. This move causes Villager to swing upwards at a great distance, but doesn't provide Villager a method to control the movement, thereby making horizontal recovery difficult.
Timber Timber Counter SSB4 Down B Custom 1 Villager.png Villager's custom down special. The sapling will cause opponents to trip, and the tree reflects some damage to any opponents that hits the tree. However, the tree, when cut, deals less damage and knockback.
Super Timber SSB4 Down B Custom 2 Villager.png Villager's custom down special. Each step gains a boost in their power, but are much longer to complete. The watering can is able to push fighters far away due to the larger sprout. The tree is larger and will deal huge amounts of damage when grown or cut. Finally, the axe provides more damage than the original Timber.
Villager's Final Smash as shown in Move List in Ultimate

Villager's Final Smash is Dream House, where they first trap an opponent before summoning Tom Nook and the Nooklings to the stage. The Villager pays them to build a house quickly, and once that's accomplished, a jingle that plays after completing a home loan in New Leaf plays. Afterwards the house explodes, causing damage to the opponent that Villager had trapped and surrounding fighters. This move would be the inspiration for Isabelle's Final Smash in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate: Dream Town Hall.
