Bowser Jr. returns in Super Smash Bros Ultimate. You can unlock Bowser Jr. in Classic Mode, Smash Mode or World of Light, but it will take a while. Here’s a guide on how to unlock Bowser Jr. in Smash Bros Ultimate.
Fastest Way To Unlock Bowser Jr.
The fastest way to unlock Bowser Jr. in Smash Bros Ultimate is to play Classic Mode 6 times. Start as Fox and he’s the sixth character you unlock.
This should only take around 60 minutes or less. While you can also use Smash Mode or the World of Light Adventure Mode, these methods will take longer.
How To Unlock Bowser Jr. In Classic Mode
You can unlock Bowser Jr. within six games of Classic Mode. The Super Smash Bros Ultimate character unlock order shows that Bowser Jr. is the seventh character in Fox’s unlock chain.
Fox > Captain Falcon > Zero Suit Samus > Peach > Falco > Daisy > Bowser Jr. > Wolf > Mewtwo > Sonic
You can play as Fox six times or any of the characters you unlock after. You’ll unlock Bowser Jr. after unlocking Daisy.
How To Unlock Bowser Jr. In Smash Mode
You can unlock all Smash Bros Ultimate characters in Smash Mode. Usually, the game lets you do this at a rate of about one character every 10 minutes. However, resetting the game software can help speed this process up to a character every 1-2 minutes.
Bowser Jr. is the 61st character you unlock using this method. While it’s the fastest way to unlock every character, using Classic Mode is faster if you need to unlock Bowser Jr. specifically.
How To Unlock Bowser Jr. In World of Light
Bowser Jr.0 can also be unlocked in the Smash Bros Ultimate Adventure Mode, World of Light.
You can find Bowser Jr. in the Sacred Land area of World of Dark. You won’t reach this point until much later in the game, making it the slowest way to unlock Bowser Jr.
