The Zodiac of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

Find out which Super Smash Bros. Ultimate characters you should play based on your zodiac sign.

We know what you’re thinking... astrology is bunk and using it to pick Super Smash Bros. Ultimate characters is beyond ridiculous. We get it, and we don’t entirely disagree. That said, Super Smash Bros. Ultimate has the largest character roster to date. If you haven’t played a Smash game in a while, it may be difficult to figure out where to start.

On the flip side, if you’re a casual fan of astrology and a hardcore Smash player, it can be fun to ponder over which characters relate to each zodiac sign. When choosing which characters to assign to each sign, we focused on a few different things. First, we took a look at the general personality types of each sign, and how that personality causes them to approach Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.

Then, we chose characters who fit based on personality, or characters that physically embody their related sign in regards to character design and appearance. As with anything, take this list with a grain of salt. We’re not saying you’re restricted to these specific characters, but rather that you should consider them as an option based on how they relate to your zodiac sign.

So, which Super Smash Bros. Ultimate characters should you try out based on your zodiac sign? Let’s take a closer look! For more info on where to start, also be sure to check out our feature on the best beginner characters in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

Aries is a Fire sign ruled by the planet Mars and represented by the Ram. They’re often described as natural born leaders thanks to their courage, personability, energy, and strong will. When challenged, those born under the Aries sign will become fiercely competitive. In relation to Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, Aries will want to come prepared.

They may read through tier lists and watch videos to determine which character will suit them best. That way, when they dive into battle, they have the highest chance at succeeding. In a local co-op setting, Aries will often want to be the one selecting match parameters. As someone with a strong sense of justice, Aries is someone who plays by the rules and has zero tolerance for cheaters.

Taurus (April 20 - May 20)

Taurus is an Earth sign ruled by the planet Venus and represented by the Bull. Drawn to creature comforts, Taurus are reliable, humble, calm, and adaptable. Glory isn’t their thing, but they enjoy winning and don’t take kindly to someone who rage quits before the match is over. They can play just about any Super Smash Bros. Ultimate character and will give each one a fair chance.

When partaking in a local co-op session, Taurus will be the first one to ask if the group wants to order pizza. After properly fueled, Taurus can be remarkably consistent. If Taurus is well-versed in Smash, you can expect them to snag first place just about every time. Alternatively, if they’re feeling particularly laid back that day, they may be content with second place.

As long as it’s not last place, Taurus will play a Smash marathon for as long as the rest of the group is able.

Gemini (May 21 - June 20)

Gemini is an Air sign ruled by the planet Mercury and represented by the Twins. Known for their dual natures, Gemini is talkative, explorative, easily bored, and outwardly vibrant. As outgoing people, they can bounce from one person to another making small talk. If you’re looking to discuss the finer points of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, Gemini are the ones to hit up.

When setting up a match, they’re the ones who choose the wildest settings. As for characters, it depends on the day. Rather than limit themselves to one character, they tend to experiment with lesser known characters. A good challenge is always up their alley. Plus, their ability to think outside the box leads them to win battles with characters others underestimate.
