Mewtwo is a playable character in the Super Smash Bros. series. It is from the Pokémon series and debuted in the Smash series from Super Smash Bros. Melee.


Mewtwo is a gentically created Pokémon that was created from Mew's cells. Mewtwo is a Legendary Pokémon and one of the first revealed in the entire series. Mewtwo is a very powerful Psychic-type Pokémon that is well known for it's fierce power in and out of it's series. Thanks to it's starring role in Mewtwo Strikes Back, Genesect and the Legend Awakened and Mewtwo Strikes Back Evolution, Mewtwo has became one of the most popular Pokémon of all time. Mewtwo has been featured in many other movies and made a single appearance in the anime where Giovanni used it to effortlessly defeat Gary. Mewtwo is one of two Pokémon to have two different Mega Evolution forms with the other one being Charizard. Many fans were upset that Mewtwo wasn't included in Super Smash Bros. Brawl (despite actually being one of the worst characters to use in Melee) but rejoiced when Mewtwo was announced as the first DLC character to be released in Super Smash Bros. 3DS/Wii U.
