Which Starting Character In 'Super Smash Bros. Ultimate' Are You, Based On Your Zodiac?

Updated December 17, 2018 2.2k views12 items

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is the holy grail for every fan of the franchise. Instead of dreaming up which characters we most want to play, Nintendo gave fans a full roster of 76 different characters ranging from Pokémon like Charizard and Mewtwo, who were available in later versions of Super Smash Bros., to old classics like Ness and Samus, who've been staples since the days of N64. Pacman even gets a chance to shine out from beyond his 8-bit prison cell.

You're going to have to get deeply acquainted with your Nintendo Switch to unlock everyone. Only eight characters are available from the start: Mario, Samus, Fox, Link, Kirby, Pikachu, Donkey Kong, and Yoshi, but in a dream world, we'd have them all.

So, which character from Super Smash Bros. Ultimate should you start with? Your zodiac sign can push you in the right direction.

    Aries are fearless, outspoken, and sort of stubborn. In other words: you're totally Fox McCloud, a natural born leader who's comfortable zipping around the universe in Star Fox.

    Fox is pretty feisty, too - perfect for a Fire sign like Aries.

    Like any Taurus, Donkey Kong enjoys the life of luxury. He's got two different sides: a laid-back one and a powerful one. The overgrown ape spends his time collecting bananas and hanging out on the tropical Donkey Kong Island. Even though he has a Taurean sense of indulgence (all those bananas don't eat themselves), Kremlings be warned - this monkey throws a powerful sucker punch, especially if you're messing with Diddy.

  • Gemini (May 21 - June 20): The Ice Climbers

    Geminis absolutely thrive in pairs. They're always searching for their other half. For this reason, the Ice Climbers are tailor-made for a Gemini spirit.

    Super Smash Bros. Ultimate opened up the game to a couple of interesting character pairs. We've got Duck Hunt (a duck-and-dog duo forced to work together), Lucas (a little boy who works with his snake), Rosalina and Luma, and Captain Olimar (who works with his Pikmin), but the Ice Climbers are the original.

  • Cancer (June 21 - July 22): Samus Aran

    Cancers are widely known for donning armor. The zodiac crabs are filled with deep emotions, but you can't get to them unless you crack their tough shells. Does that sound like anyone else? Perhaps a certain orphan from a foreign planet.

    Underneath Samus Aran's powerful suit is a powerful woman. Much like most Cancers, Samus has the tendency to get a little melancholy. She is, after all, quite the loner. Open up that shell and let someone in, would you?
