C. Additional Rules
● Stage Striking: Players eliminate stages from the Starter/Neutral list until there is one stage remaining. The player/team without port priority strikes first. Then the other player/team strikes two stages. Then the player/team with port priority strikes one more stage and the remaining stage is used for the first game of the set.
● Stage Bans: After each game of the set, before counterpicking, the player who won the previous game may ban one stage from either the starter or counterpick list. This rule is not in effect for best of 5 sets.
● Stage Clause: A player/team may not pick any stage they previously won on during the set.
Wobbling is banned.
Ultimate:
Singles
Ruleset: 3 Stock
Time Limit: 6-8 minutes
Items: Off.
Stage Hazard Toggle: Off
Final Smash Meter: Off
Spirits: Off [1]
Mii Fighters and their respective custom moves are allowed. If they do use custom moves, it will be shown in their name with what number move it is from 1 to 3, in the order shown on the move selection screen (ex. 1111, 2223, 3121).
Similar to previous Smash titles, if time runs out, the winner is first determined by how many stocks remain, and then by the percentage after time is up.
If both stock and percentage are the same, or a game ends in both players losing their last stock at the same time, then a tiebreaker is played, which consists of a 1 stock and 3 minute match with the same characters and the same stage.
Doubles
All the rulesets for singles above apply.
Team Attack: On
Share stock is allowed.
Stages
Since the competitive scene is still rather young, and because of the sheer number of stages and the option to turn off stage hazards, there is no universally agreed upon stage list. This is why some tournaments use stages that are banned in others. When the losing player is choosing a counterpick stage, the winning player is sometimes allowed to ban one to two stages they have not counterpicked to or won on in the set. The list compiled below is an estimate based off of tournaments up to Ultimate Nimbus. While Small Battlefield has not seen much tournament play due to the lack of offline tournaments since its introduction, the stage is considered legal at the moment and may be used as a substitute for either Pokémon Stadium. The legality of Minecraft World is debated, due to the ability to choose specific forms, however the lack of offline tournaments since its introduction have inhibited the discussion to a degree. Northern Cave and Hollow Bastion are other recently released stages that have been considered as potential replacements to Kalos Pokémon League and Smashville, respectively.
Universal starters
The following stages are on the starter lists of virtually all tournaments, meaning they can be selected for any game in a match:
Battlefield*
Final Destination*
Pokémon Stadium (2)* / Small Battlefield*
Smashville
Counterpicks
The following stages are commonly seen as counterpick stages, meaning they can only be picked after the first game in a match. In some tournaments, they may be used as starter stages, or be banned altogether:
Yoshi’s Story
Lylat Cruise
Kalos Pokémon League
Town and City
Northern Cave
Hollow Bastion
Uncommon counterpicks/Semi-retired
The following stages rarely see use in larger tournaments, but may still be found in smaller tournaments and tournaments hosted by Nintendo. These stages may also see use in competitive play via the Gentleman’s Rule.
Dream Land
Rainbow Cruise
Fountain of Dreams
WarioWare, Inc.
Yoshi’s Island (Brawl)
Frigate Orpheon
Halberd
Castle Siege
Unova Pokémon League
PictoChat 2
Skyloft
Wuhu Island
Wily Castle
Midgar
Umbra Clock Tower
Mementos
Yggdrasil’s Altar
Spring Stadium
Minecraft World
Battlefield and Ω forms
Most Battlefield and Ω forms are typically allowed, but there are several that are explicitly banned for one reason or another. Stages that only have two dimensions cause significant differences during gameplay due to manipulating the Z-axis, and as such are always banned. Stages that conceal the ground are banned due to the unfair advantage they provide to characters that lay traps on the stage, such as Snake, Isabelle and Steve. Stages that conceal the blast zone walls are banned due to hindering player visibility and unfairly effecting characters that rely on offstage chases; though this rule is sometimes contested due to the introduction of the radar.
Stages that manipulate the Z-axis
Hanenbow
Dream Land GB
Mute City SNES
Flat Zone X
Duck Hunt
Pac-Land
Super Mario Maker
Stages that conceal the ground
Windy Hill Zone
Stages that conceal the blast zone walls
Gamer
No longer banned as of version 8.0.0
Fountain of Dreams, previously banned due to the water’s reflection causing framerate drops.
Garreg Mach Monastery, previously banned due to the stage’s ceiling blast zone differing from Final Destination and Battlefield.
