Hueco Mundo (虚圏, ウェコムンド) is a starter stage in Super Smash Flash 2 from the Bleach franchise. This stage was one of the stages confirmed in the teaser. It was released in the v0.6 of the demo with a completely different design from the one seen in the trailer. Due to its relative large size, in addition characters can walk off stage, something that promotes camping, this stage is banned in many tournament competitions.
The stage takes place on a sparse, desert-covered world. The Palace of Las Noches is the only edification found in the stage. The stage consists of a large steep cliff that slopes downward towards the left side of the stage. There is also a floating platform that goes left across the stage, once the platform goes off screen on the left side, it will reappear on the right side of the stage and continue to go left in a cycle.
- The main music track is Bleach Medley, a dramatic medley of seven remixed songs from the anime Bleach: Will of the Heart, Treachery, Invasion, Clavar La Espada, Nube Negra, Quincy's Craft, and What Can You See In Their Eyes.
- The alternate music track is On the Precipice of Defeat, a synthetic remix of the theme that plays when Ichigo's demise is approaching in the anime Bleach.
This stage is banned in competitive play. The main platform is hugely problematic, consisting mostly of one large slope that descends from the right-hand side of the stage down to the only instance of a walk-off edge on the bottom boundary in the game. This feature alone is enough to warrant a ban.
In Bleach, Hueco Mundo is the dimension where Hollows and Arrancar usually reside. Hueco Mundo is located between the Human world and Soul Society, though it is separate from the bordering dimension known as Dangai. It can only be accessed by tearing the dimensional fabric separating the worlds, which allows Hollows to travel to any other dimension at will. Depending on the Hollow, the effect of this process varies. Regular Hollows usually appear from a small black vortex or form out of smoke, while Menos-class Hollows quite literally tear the sky apart to emerge. Arrancar use a more stable variant of the latter technique known as Garganta.
- Prior to demo v0.9b, Sōsuke Aizen could be seen in the background on the right side with three swords, before disappearing a few seconds later.
- Prior to Beta 1.0, the background was different. Ulquiorra Cifer and Tier Harribel could be seen on the right side, standing guard at the Palace of Las Noches.
