A recent Famitsu column by Smash Bros creator Sakurai suggests we may get new Smash Bros Ultimate bosses. With only 8 bosses in Classic Mode and over 70 fighters, it’d made sense for more boss characters to come via DLC. Here are five possible new Smash Bros Ultimate Bosses we could hopefully see in future.

Potential New Bosses in Smash Bros Ultimate


Porky (also known as Pokey Minch) is one of the antagonists in Earthbound, as well as the main antagonist of Mother 3. Since he’s the enemy of both Ness and Lucas, he’d fit right in as a new DLC boss in Smash Bros Ultimate.

He previously featured in Super Smash Bros Brawl as a boss in the Subspace Emissary Adventure mode. If we’re lucky, we could see a return of Porky and his spider mech in Smash Ultimate.

Masayoshi Shido

With Joker from Persona 5 coming soon to Smash Bros Ultimate, we could also see a Persona boss character. Shido would be a great choice of character for Joker to face in Smash Bros Ultimate Classic Mode.

Shido appears multiple times in Persona 5 in many forms. He’s one of the main enemies and Joker’s archrival in the game.


Medusa is the Goddess of Darkness and the enemy of Pit and Palutena. As such, she’d fit right in in Super Smash Bros Ultimate as a boss character.

There were previously rumors of Medusa’s voice actor doing work for Smash Bros Ultimate. If she makes a cameo of some sort, a Classic Mode boss for Pit and Palutena would make a great choice.

Ultra Necrozma

With so many Pokémon characters in the Super Smash Bros Ultimate roster, it would make sense to get a Pokémon boss. Ultra Necrozma would fit the bill perfectly.

Ultra Necrozma is a Legendary Pokémon in the Ultra Moon and Ultra Sun games, as well as one of the most formidable foes in the game.

Black Knight

The Black Knight from Fire Emblem was actually a highly requested DLC character. However, while it seems less likely we’ll get him in the roster, he’d make an ideal boss character for the Fire Emblem fighters.

Black Knight appeared as a main boss character in Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance and Radiant Dawn. He’s a rival to Ike and a character that would make a strong boss battle.
