Universes in the Super Smash Flash series

Major universes

These are the franchises that the Super Smash Flash series games classify as major enough that they assign each franchise its own unique series symbol[Note 1] that appears with characters and stages belonging to that franchise. These franchises generally have playable characters, stages, items, and other properties that all appear in the Super Smash Flash games as part of their primary content. However, the minimum requirement for a symbol is to contribute one playable character or one stage to the games.

First and second-party universes

The bosses Master Hand and Crazy Hand, and the playable character Sandbag, are from this universe.
