The next DLC fighters coming to Super Smash Bros. Ultimate are Pyra and Mythra from Xenoblade Chronicles 2, but how many slots do they occupy?
Pyra and Mythra from Xenoblade Chronicles 2 are the next upcoming DLC characters Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, but there is some confusion as to how many fighter slots they take. Confusion comes from the official Super Smash Bros. Ultimate website and how it numbers fighters.
Super Smash Bros. Ultimate features all the characters in the franchise’s history, but the series is ubiquitous when it comes to numbering them. The official Super Smash Bros. Ultimate The website lists the Ice Climbers as a single character, although two are always present on screen. The Pokémon Trainer is listed as three characters (Charizard, Ivysaur, and Squirtle), none of which are the Pokémon Trainer. Rosalina and Luma are both considered one character. Bowser Jr. is classified as a unique character, although his costumes all have different names. Duck Hunt Duo is a unique character, even though it consists of three beings (the dog, the duck, and the person with the NES Zapper). Banjo and Kazooie are listed as one character, as are the four different versions of Hero and the two versions of Byleth.

Smash DLC Characters: Smashing The Numbers
The official Super Smash Bros. Ultimate The website lists Pyra as a # 79 fighter and Mythra as a # 80 fighter. Despite this, they are considered one character in terms of gameplay. The official Pyra and Mythra gameplay trailer showed them transforming into each other, which will likely be done with the special command down. This gimmick originally belonged to Princess Zelda and Sheik, as well as the Pokemon Trainer. The gadget had to be scrapped Super Smash Bros. 3DS, because the system could not handle the loading of another character during the game without slowing down. This is also the reason why ice climbers were abandoned in this generation. Hardware is no longer an issue, so Pyra and Mythra can use the Transformation Gadget.
The Super Smash Bros. Ultimate The website also lists two empty slots for the remaining DLC fighters. This means fans don’t have to worry about the news. Xenoblade characters occupying too many fighter slots, as there are still two more characters waiting to join the roster. The Super Smash Bros. Ultimate fans should know who is left Smash DLC characters are at the end of the year.
