A starter character is a character in the Super Smash Flash series who is available for play immediately after turning the game on for the first time; the player does not have to unlock or challenge that character in order to be able to select it (as one must do to select unlockable characters).
List of starter characters
- 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.
- Falco and Mr. Game and Watch are the only characters that have never been starters in the official games.
- Luigi, Lloyd, Naruto, and Mr. Game & Watch had their availability status swapped from unlockable to starter between his transition from SSF to SSF2.
