According to the 2019 Smash Ultimate Tier List, Lucina is one of the best characters in Super Smash Bros Ultimate. However, while she’s a Marth Echo Fighter, unlocking Lucina is different. Here’s a guide on how to unlock Lucina in Smash Bros Ultimate.
Fastest Way To Unlock Lucina In Smash Bros Ultimate
The fastest way to unlock Lucina in Smash Bros Ultimate is to play Classic Mode 5 times, starting as Yoshi. You’ll unlock Lucario, Marth, Ryu, Ganondorf, and then Lucina.
With each game of Classic Mode taking around 10 minutes, this will generally take 50 minutes or less. While you can also unlock Lucina in Smash Mode or World of Light, it’ll usually take longer.
How To Unlock Lucina In Classic Mode
You can unlock Lucina within 5 games of Classic Mode. The Smash Ultimate character unlock order shows that Lucina is the 6th character in Yoshi’s unlock chain.
Yoshi > Lucario > Marth > Ryu > Ganondorf > Lucina > Ridley > Chrom > Ken > Sonic
Yoshi will unlock Lucario, who can then unlock Marth, and so on. Unlocking Lucina will take around 50 minutes or less depending on how fast you complete Classic Mode. You can make this even faster by playing on a lower difficulty setting.
How To Unlock Lucina In Smash Mode
You can also use Smash Mode to unlock the Smash Bros Ultimate Fighters. Resetting the game software allows you to unlock new characters at a rate of around one every 1-2 minutes.
However, Lucina is the 23rd character you unlock with this method. While it won’t take as long as some characters, you may prefer Classic Mode to unlock Lucina quickly.
How To Unlock Lucina In World of Light
Alternatively, you can find and unlock Lucina in World of Light, the Smash Bros Ultimate Adventure Mode.
Lucina is found in the Dark Realm area of the World of Dark. You won’t get to this point until much later in the game, making it the slowest method for unlocking Lucina.
