According to the Super Smash Bros Ultimate Tier List 2019, Olimar is one of the best characters in Smash Bros Ultimate. However, it’ll take some work to unlock him. Here’s a guide on how to unlock Olimar in Smash Bros Ultimate.
Fastest Way To Unlock Olimar In Smash Bros Ultimate
You can unlock Olimar fast in World of Light. Take the Marth route early on in the game and head towards the bottom left of the map. Towards the bottom of the Mushroom Area, you can find Olimar and access him with the Kamek Spirit.
You can unlock Olimar within around 40-50 minutes this way. Alternatively, you can unlock Olimar in 8 games of Classic Mode in around 80 minutes or less.
How To Unlock Olimar In Classic Mode
You can unlock Olimar in 8 games of Classic Mode. The Super Smash Bros Ultimate character unlock order shows that Olimar is the 9th character in Mario’s unlock chain.
Mario > Sonic > Bayonetta > Little Mac > Ike > Luigi > Roy > Dr Mario > Olimar > Bowser
You can play as Mario 8 times or any of the characters you unlock subsequently. After unlocking the other 7 characters, you’ll unlock Olimar after Dr. Mario. With each game of Classic Mode taking 10 minutes or average, this should take around 80 minutes or less.
How To Unlock Olimar In Smash Mode
Using Smash Mode is the fastest way to unlock all Smash Bros Ultimate characters. However, it may be the slowest way to unlock Olimar.
Olimar is the 48th character you unlock using this method. While you can still manage this in around 2 or 3 hours, it takes longer than unlocking Olimar in World of Light or Classic Mode.
How To Unlock Olimar In World of Light
