Mr. Game & Watch is a playable veteran starter character in Super Smash Flash 2. He was revealed on the third day of the APEX 2015 stream. His moveset is a combination of his moveset in the Super Smash Bros. series. Unlike his usual appearance as an unlockable character in his appearances in all the Super Smash Bros. games released to date, he is made a starter instead in Super Smash Flash 2. His sprite design is based on his appearance in Super Smash Bros. Brawl while taking some attributes from his appearances in all the Super Smash Bros. games.

G&W Palettes




  • All of Mr. Game & Watch's moves use objects from games in the Game & Watch series, making him the only character to have every single move in his arsenal based on a game he appeared previously before.
  • Mr. Game & Watch, Marth, Falco, Sonic, Luigi, and Ness are the only characters who had unlockable status in at least one of the Super Smash Bros. games to be a starter character in SSF2. While Captain Falcon and Jigglypuff are also starters, they had to be unlocked in the demo version they debuted in.
    • Mr. Game & Watch and Falco are the only characters that have never been starters in the official games.
  • Mr. Game & Watch is one of five characters to have his availability status swapped from unlockable to starter between his transition from SSF to SSF2, the other four are Jigglypuff, Luigi, Lloyd, and Naruto.
  • Mr. Game & Watch has the highest number of palette swaps out of the entire known roster, numbering at twenty, more than double that of the rest of the cast.
  • Although Mr. Game & Watch's main palette swap is black, his default palette swap is actually red. This allows the developers to create varied palette swaps for the character, as grayscale colors like black cannot be changed by applying different hues.
