As with the Super Smash Bros. games, matches officially start in the Super Smash Flash games when the announcer says "Go!".

An announcer, also referred as a narrator, is a voice that plays the role of a referee in the game. It has been a feature present in every game of the Super Smash Bros. series. Being a series of non-profit fan games based on the Super Smash Bros. series, both games in the Super Smash Flash series also have their own announcer.

In Super Smash Flash

In order to provide the first game of the series, Super Smash Flash, an extra twist, Cleod9 opted to use a female announcer, Kira Buckland, who goes by the alias of Kagome, very different to those of the official Super Smash Bros. games that made use of a male announcer. Another reason he specified doing so was that audio files would not be consistent, claiming Super Smash Bros. Melee's announcer's voice did not rip very well, plus Kagome's voice was much clearer.[1] The choice of using a female announcer received a mixed reactions from many players. Some found her voice unfitting for a fighting game based on a Smash game, comparing it with the official game's announcers. On the other hand, some thought, indeed, a female announcer gave SSF a special feeling not seen in the original Smash games and was comparably unique to the game.

In Super Smash Flash 2

For the reboot, Super Smash Flash 2, Cleod9 opted for the use of a male announcer like in the official games. The decision for this change is unknown. The man responsible for the announcer's voice is Joshua Tomar, who goes by the alias TomaMoto. The announcer feature was first incorporated in v0.5a of the demo and, as new things are added into the game, new voice clips for the announcer are added when a new demo is released.

  • In Super Smash Flash, unlike in Super Smash Bros. Melee, Master Hand and Crazy Hand are not voiced by the announcer (likely because it was a female); instead, voice clips from their respective appearances in Melee were used.
    • This is also the case for Super Smash Flash 2, which has Master Hand re-utilizing samples from Pat Cashman (Super Smash Bros. Brawl's announcer), despite utilizing a male announcer this time.
  • In Super Smash Flash, aside the announcer work, Buckland also did the voiceover for Naruto.
