|This article or section contains non-canon information.
Super Smash Bros For Nintendo 3DS and Wii U (大乱闘 スマッシュ ブラザーズ For 3DS Wii U Great Fray Smash Brothers For 3DS and Wii U) and unofficially known as Super Smash Bros. 4 are the fourth and fifth games in the Super Smash Bros. series, both released in 2014. Although many fans consider them to be the same game, Masahiro Sakurai confirmed the 3DS version is the fourth installment and the Wii U version is the fifth installment. Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS is the first game in the series for a handheld system; while Super Smash Bros. for Wii U is the first to be in HD.
Ness returns as a playable character in both games, being an unlockable character in the 3DS version, and a default character in the Wii U version. Lucas returns from Brawl, as a downloadable character released on June 14th, 2015. With the addition of customizable characters, Ness gains new possible special moves, some of them, like PK Freeze, coming directly from Lucas' moveset. Additionally, both characters gain new alternate outfits. A demo of EarthBound also appears as a Masterpiece.

Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS
Flying Man will occasionally appear and help the player who touches him first by attacking the other fighters. When defeated, a grave appears near their house - and only a maximum of five can appear in a single battle, like both the games in which they appear.
Five other objects or characters sometimes appear as platforms: Mobile Sprout, Dungeon Man, the Sky Runner, iron octopus statues (appearing as iron pencil statues in the English version of EarthBound ), and giant tomatoes seen in the EarthBound version of Magicant.

- Oddly any EarthBound reference that was changed in localization in their original games was left unchanged in this game, notably the Psycho Car and Pencil Statue were left as the Devil Car and Octopus Statue respectively.
- This is the first Super Smash Bros. game to have a stage based on a location from EarthBound Beginnings.
- Additionally the 3DS version is the last game to introduce a new EarthBound series stage.
