Role Reversal

Role Reversal is event #22 in Super Smash Flash 2.


Playing as Sandbag, the player must "catch" the randomly selected opponent using only its Final Smash, Home-Run Combo, within a time limit of 1:00. The event takes place on the Home-Run Stadium used for Home-Run Contest without the barrier. Sandbag starts off on the platform while the opponent starts on the grassy area and slowly runs forward throughout the event. To complete the event, the player must successfully land Home-Run Combo on the opponent. However, if Sandbag misses its Final Smash or the timer runs out, the player will fail the event.


The ranking the player receives is based on how much time the event takes to be completed. The specific conditions for this are listed below.

A 0:09 '20
B 0:10 '66
C 0:13 '16
D 0:13 '83
E 0:15 '00
F > 0:15 '00


The event's original preview.

  • This event allows the player to play as Sandbag before unlocking it.
  • Despite both Sandbag and the opponent having one stock each, neither can be KO'd in the event. Even though Sandbag's Final Smash is used on the opponent, the event ends before the Final Smash itself is finished.
  • Sandbag's congratulations screen in Classic depicts Sandbag chasing PAC-MAN across the Home-Run Stadium with its Final Smash active, which can only be recreated in this event.
  • Unlike in Home-Run Contest, the music track Home-Run Contest does not play during this event. The track Waiting Room plays instead, which normally plays on Waiting Room.
  • Prior to Beta 1.0.1, Sandbag would spawn without its Final Smash ready, making the event impossible to complete. McLeodGaming initially addressed this problem by sharing a special .ssfsav archive that automatically completes the event with an S rank.
  • In the initial release of Beta and prior to Beta 1.2, because Smash Balls had been temporarily removed, this was one of the two points in the game where a Final Smash could be used, along with Pacmania.
  • The preview image of this event was changed in Beta 1.3.1 due to Sandbag receiving new sprites.
