|This article or section contains non-canon information.|
Super Smash Bros. Brawl, released in 2008 for the Wii, is the third game in the Super Smash Bros. series. It was one of the most anticipated games for the Wii, mostly due to delays in its release. Super Smash Bros. Brawl is also the first game in the series to feature non-Nintendo characters, namely Sonic and Snake.
Brawl features a total of 35 playable characters, many of which were carried over from Melee, though other Melee characters were removed. Two Mother characters appear in Brawl: Ness from EarthBound, and the newcomer Lucas from Mother 3.

Super Smash Bros. Brawl featured some modes that were unavailable in the last two games, in addition to the older modes. Classic Mode returns and is kept largely the same. The Adventure Mode, however, was redesigned into a new adventure called the Subspace Emissary, which featured all but three of the playable characters and an actual plot.
Also added was the ability to create one's own stages, known as Custom Stages. Another mode, known as Masterpieces, allowed players to play demos of games from previous systems, such as Super Metroid and Super Mario Bros. 2. EarthBound was a demo in the Japanese version of Super Smash Bros. Brawl but was removed from the English version due to being a commercial failure outside Japan at the time.
Super Smash Bros. Brawl was the highest rated game in the series at the time of its release. It scored a perfect score on Famitsu, and has received further critical acclaim.
