Once one of the most popular characters in Super Smash Bros Melee, Mewtwo now returns to the Smash Bros Ultimate roster. Luckily, it’s easier to unlock Mewtwo in Smash Ultimate than in Melee. Here’s a guide on how to unlock Mewtwo in Smash Bros Ultimate.

Fastest Way To Unlock Mewtwo In Smash Bros Ultimate

The fastest way to unlock Mewtwo in Smash Bros Ultimate is to play Classic Mode 8 times. If you start as Fox, Mewtwo is the 8th character you unlock.

This should take around 80 minutes or less. Unfortunately, there’s no super fast way to unlock Mewtwo. While you can also use Smash Mode or World of Light, these methods take longer.

How To Unlock Mewtwo In Classic Mode

You can unlock Mewtwo in Classic Mode within 8 games. The Smash Bros Ultimate character unlock order shows that Mewtwo is the 9th character in Fox’s unlock chain.

Fox > Captain Falcon > Zero Suit Samus > Peach > Falco > Daisy > Bowser Jr. > Wolf > Mewtwo > Sonic

Start as Fox and you can unlock Captain Falcon, Zero Suit Samus, Peach, Falco, Daisy, Bowser Jr., Wolf, and then Mewtwo. With each game taking around 10 minutes on average, this should take around 80 minutes or less.

How To Unlock Mewtwo In Smash Mode

Smash Mode allows you to unlock every character in Smash Bros Ultimate. The game lets you unlock a new character every 10 minutes. However, closing and reopening the game software allows you to do it every 1-2 minutes.

This lets you unlock characters much faster. However, Mewtwo is the 60th character you unlock via this method, meaning it’ll take at least a couple of hours.

How To Unlock Mewtwo In World of Light

Alternatively, you can find and unlock Mewtwo in World of Light, the Smash Bros Ultimate Adventure Mode.

You find Mewtwo in the Mysterious Dimension area in the World of Dark. It takes many hours to reach this point in the game, making this the slowest way to get Mewtwo.
