Jigglypuff is a playable character in the Super Smash Bros. series, tracing her origin to the Pokémon series. She is one of the "Original 12."


Jigglypuff is a Normal/Fairy-type Pokémon (formerly pure Normal) and is known as the Balloon Pokémon. Jigglypuff can use an assortment of attacks including Pound and Rollout but it's signature attack is Sing that can put opponents to sleep. Although Jigglypuff isn't as well known in Pokémon Red and Blue compared to Pikachu, her incusion into the Super Smash Bros. series most likely came from her role in the anime. She will often appear and put Ash Ketchum and his friends to sleep and then will write on their faces for falling asleep during her performances.

Super Smash Bros.

Jigglypuff is an unlockable character in Super Smash Bros.. She has the following special moves:

  • Standard Special: Pound -- Jigglypuff punches forward.
  • Up Special: Sing -- An irregular Up Special, since Jigglypuff just sings on the spot. Anyone who gets too close to her falls asleep.
  • Down Special: Jigglypuff rests. If she does this close to someone, she damages and launches them.

Super Smash Bros. Melee

Jigglypuff returns in Super Smash Bros. Melee as one of the eleven secret characters. She is unlockable after clearing Classic or Adventure mode with any character. She retains all of the previous special moves, but Pound is now a Side Special (Super Smash Bros. 64 had no "Side Specials" per se.). Her standard special is changed to Rollout, which is a chargeable move akin to Wheel Kirby from the Kirby series.

Super Smash Bros. Brawl

Jigglypuff returns once again in Super Smash Bros. Brawl. Jigglypuff appears the same as before, but is more difficult to unlock than in previous installments of the series, considering it was the 33rd character introduced on the DOJO!! and the last unlockable character to be introduced.

Jigglypuff's Final Smash is Puff Up. She inflates and gets larger and pushes any character off the stage, and Jigglypuff is invulnerable during this form. Jigglypuff, alongside Wolf and Toon Link are unlockable in Super Smash Bros. Brawl after beating Subspace Emissary.

Super Smash Bros. 4

Jigglypuff is once again an unlockable playable character in the 3DS version of Super Smash Bros. 4, but a starter character in the Wii U version. Her appearance is now more similar to her appearance in recent Pokémon games: she has blue eyes for the first time in the Super Smash Bros. series.

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

Jigglypuff returns as a playable character in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. Unlike in Super Smash Bros. for Wii U, she has reverted back to being an unlockable character.

In Classic Mode, Jigglypuff fights the cast of the original Super Smash Bros.. The order of the battles starts off with Link just like the 1P Game from the original Super Smash Bros.. Therefore, Jigglypuff's Classic Mode is a reference to the 1P Game from Smash 64 (as it fights the characters in the Original 12 from the original game).


  • Of the four unlockable characters featured in SSB, Jigglypuff spent the longest time as an unlockable character throughout the series until the release of Super Smash Bros. for Wii U, where it finally became a starter character.
