The fast and powerful Generation 6 Pokemon is back in Super Smash Bros Ultimate. You can get Greninja in Classic Mode, Smash Mode or World of Light. Here’s a guide on how to unlock Greninja in Smash Bros Ultimate.
Fastest Way To Unlock Greninja In Smash Bros Ultimate
The quickest way to unlock Greninja in Smash Bros Ultimate is via Classic Mode. If you start off as Donkey Kong, you can unlock Greninja within 6 games of Classic Mode.
With each Classic Mode game taking around 10 minutes on average, this should take about 60 minutes or less. You may be able to make this even shorter by playing on a low difficulty level. You can also unlock Greninja in Smash Mode or World Of Light, although these methods will generally take longer.
How To Unlock Greninja In Classic Mode
You can unlock Greninja in 6 games of Classic Mode. Following the Super Smash Bros Ultimate character unlock order, Greninja is the 7th character in Donkey Kong’s unlock chain.
Donkey Kong > Bowser > Pokemon Trainer > Rosalina > King Dedede > Sheik > Greninja > Diddy Kong > Duck Hunt > Sonic
That means you can complete Classic Mode with Donkey Kong to unlock Bowser, then Pokemon Trainer and so on. You’ll unlock Greninja after unlocking the five other characters before him.
How To Unlock Greninja In Smash Mode
Smash Mode offers another way to unlock the characters in Smash Bros Ultimate. Generally, the game allows you to unlock a new character after every 10 minutes of battles. However, there is a trick to shorten the cooldown time.
However, it will still take some time to unlock Greninja this way. Greninja is the 58th character you unlock with this method.
How To Unlock Greninja In World Of Light
You can also play World of Light, the Smash Bros Ultimate Adventure Mode, to unlock characters.
Greninja can be found in the Mysterious Dimension area of the World of Dark. You won’t reach this point until many hours into the game, making it the slowest way to unlock Greninja.
