King K Rool is one of the most surprising and interesting newcomers to hit Smash Bros. The good news is it won’t take long to unlock King K Rool in Smash Ultimate. Here’s a guide on how to unlock King K Rool in Smash Bros Ultimate.
Fastest Way To Unlock King K Rool in Smash Bros Ultimate
The fastest way to unlock King K Rool in Smash Bros Ultimate is to play Classic Mode as Link. This should only take around 10 minutes or less, making him one of the easiest characters to unlock.
You can also unlock King K Rool in World of Light or Smash Mode, although these methods will take longer.
How To Unlock King K Rool in Classic Mode
Unlocking King K Rool in Classic Mode is quick and easy. Simply play Classic Mode 1 time as Link. Following the Smash Bros Ultimate Character unlock order, K Rool is the first character you unlock in Link’s unlock chain.
Link > King K Rool > Ice Climbers > Simon Belmont > Meta Knight > Snake > Young Link > Richter Belmont > Toon Link > Sonic
This makes it especially quick to unlock him- especially if you play on a low difficulty. This should only take around 10 minutes or less.
How To Unlock King K Rool in Smash Mode
Taking part in Smash Mode battles also allows you to unlock new characters. Providing you have moved enough distance in the game, you can unlock a new fighter every 10 minutes. However, resetting the game allows you to reset the timer and unlock characters quicker.
This method will let you unlock character after character very fast. However, King K Rool is the 16th character you’ll unlock via this method. While you can still unlock him relatively fast, it’s much quicker to use Classic Mode.
How To Unlock King K Rool in World of Light
You can also unlock King K Rool in the Smash Bros Ultimate Adventure Mode, World of Light.
You can find King K Rool in the Mysterious Dimension area of the World of Dark. You won’t reach this point until much later in the game, making this the slowest way to unlock King K Rool.
