Over the course of Super Smash Flash 2's demos, some background characters were removed, generally due to major changes in the stages they appeared in. Below is a list of removed background characters in Super Smash Flash 2, as Super Smash Flash had none.

List of removed background characters

Bee Blader as it appeared on Central Highway.

  • Bee Blader (ビーブレイダー) is a large bee-type helicopter Mechaniloid created for the purpose of transporting Ball De Voux. Built for guerrilla warfare they are suited for operations in the forest or city. Bee Bladers attack by firing their machine gun, launching guided missiles, and dropping Ball De Voux to assist them. If X attempts to stand underneath one as it falls from the sky in defeat, he will then be crushed. A Bee Blader appeared flying by in the background of Central Highway during demos v0.7 to v0.8b before it received sprite tweaks in version v0.9a.

Cream running on Green Hill Zone.

  • Cream the Rabbit (クリーム・ザ・ラビット) is a character in the Sonic universe. She is frequently accompanied by her friend Cheese. Originally living an idyllic life with her family, Cream had an encounter with Sonic the Hedgehog and his friends when the evil Doctor Eggman entered her world, and soon joined them on their adventures. Cream is able to achieve flight by flapping her large ears. She is very polite, brave and well-mannered, although she can be childish and naive, too. Cream originally appeared in the past stage Green Hill Zone as a background character, where she runs somewhat slowly across the loop. She was removed in SSF2 demo v0.9a.

Various Mabels as she appeared on Smashville.

  • Mabel is a shopkeeper in the Animal Crossing universe. She co-owns the Able Sisters tailor shop with her older sister, Sable. She is the more charismatic of the two sisters and assists customers with their purchases. Various Mabels appeared in the background of Smashville and they were the only villagers to ever appear in the aforementioned stage. They were removed when the stage was updated in v0.8b.

A deactivated and rusted Mecha Sonic on Sky Sanctuary Zone.

  • Mecha Sonic is a robot modeled on Sonic the Hedgehog, created by Doctor Eggman. It is distinct from the well-known Metal Sonic. There have been several models of Mecha Sonic in various games of the series. Mecha Sonic has more of a sleek, thin appearance, with large gauntlets and a visor. When he curls into a ball, he becomes a spiky, sharp ball. Mecha Sonic made his debut in Sonic & Knuckles, where Sonic fought him three times at Sky Sanctuary while tracking down the Death Egg. Knuckles the Echidna was still able to defeat Mecha Sonic, completely destroying him. Mecha Sonic could be seen in the background of Sky Sanctuary Zone broken into pieces and laying all rusted. He was removed in SSF2 Beta 1.0, with the revamp of Sky Sanctuary Zone.

Piccolo as he appeared on Planet Namek.

  • Piccolo Jr. (ピッコロ・ジュニア), usually just called Piccolo, is a Namekian and also the final child and reincarnation of King Piccolo (ピッコロ大魔王), later becoming the reunification of the Nameless Namekian after fusing with Kami (神様). According to Grand Elder Guru (最長老), Piccolo, along with Kami-sama and Piccolo Daimaō, are part of the Dragon Clan, who were the original creators of the Dragon Balls. A wise and cunning warrior who was originally a ruthless enemy of Goku, Piccolo later becomes a permanent member of the Dragon Team, largely due to forming a mutual respect to Goku and even more from forming a close bond with Goku's first-born son, Gohan. Piccolo could be seen witnessing the match in the foreground of Planet Namek and was the only one to be stationary. He was removed in the Beta 1.1 version when Planet Namek was resprited.

Rope Snake as it appeared on Saturn Valley.

  • Rope Snake is a character from the EarthBound universe. It appears as a key item in the video game Mother 3. It is used as Lucas's grab and tethering move in Super Smash Bros. Brawl and Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS and Wii U. It also appears in one of Lucas' taunts, where the two appear to argue. Rope Snake appeared in the background of Saturn Valley hanging from a clothes line. It was removed when the stage was resprited.

Rosalina standing at the center of the Comet Observatory (Galaxy Tours).

  • Rosalina (ロゼッタ) is the adoptive mother of the Luma race and overseer of the Comet Observatory. She was rumored to be an Assist Trophy in Super Smash Bros. Brawl, but this turned out to be false. She is a playable character while being assisted by a Luma in Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS and Wii U. Rosalina has made 'protecting the cosmos' her mission in life. She is a loving figure, caring for her children diligently. She still misses her mother, who apparently died years ago. Rosalina originally stood in front of the beacon at the center of the sub-stage, Comet Observatory from Galaxy Tours. She was removed from the game, alongside the Comet Observatory, in SSF2 Beta 1.0.

The Scurvy Crew's brief appearance on Gangplank Galleon.

  • The Scurvy Crew are a trio of crab pirates who are boss characters in Donkey Kong Country Returns. The Scurvy Crew's leader is the red crab, Captain Greenbeard. Prior to their boss battle, the Scurvy Crew have a major role during the level Peaceful Pier, where they ride a pirate ship, chasing after Donkey Kong and Diddy Kong. Throughout the level, they try to attack the Kongs with multiple bombs and an anchor, the latter causing their ship to crash at the end of the level. They briefly appeared standing on three islands in the background of Gangplank Galleon. They were removed in Beta 1.0, when Gangplank Galleon's sprites got redone.

Sōsuke Aizen with three swords on Hueco Mundo.

  • Sōsuke Aizen (藍染 惣右介) is the main antagonist in the Bleach franchise's Arrancar Invasion arc, where he tried to destroy the Soul Society using multiple Arrancar. Aizen initially appeared to be a very kind, well-respected captain and was looked up to by many, especially his lieutenant, Momo Hinamori. However, this was just a mask to disguise his manipulative, and very dangerous nature. In truth, he cared very little for his underlings, and is willing to use almost everyone around him as pawns to achieve his goals. Sōsuke Aizen appeared in the stage Hueco Mundo, standing behind three swords. He was removed when Hueco Mundo got an update in SSF2 demo v0.9b.

Tier Harribel and Ulquiorra Cifer guarding Las Noches on Hueco Mundo.

  • Tier Harribel (ティア・ハリベル) and Ulquiorra Cifer (ウルキオラ・シファー) are Espadas that were formerly part of Sōsuke Aizen's Arrancar army prior to the latter’s defeat (they were ranked third and fourth, respectively). Harribel is one of the only two female Espadas (the other being Nelliel Tu Odelschwanck, who formerly held the third rank before Harribel). Ulquiorra was the only Espada to ever have a second Resurrecciòn release. Each of the Espada have an aspect of death, with Harribel’s being sacrifice and Ulquiorra’s being emptiness. They appeared guarding the palace of Las Noches seen in the background of Hueco Mundo. They were removed when the background of Hueco Mundo got another tweak in SSF2 Beta 1.0.
