Smash Bros. is a game with a strong metagame, and with every strong metagame comes an organized rule set. The following is the standard competitive rule set used here in Smash Bros. for Wii U/3DS. Note that this is not a definite rule format so you are free to follow any rule set so long as all players are fine with the rules.

Tournament Match Format:

  • Items must be turned off
  • 3 Stock with 8 minute timer
  • Best of 3 (Finals will be a Best of 5)
  • Custom moves and equipment are banned unless stated otherwise
  • Mii Fighters are legal

Legal Stages:

  • Battlefield
  • Final Destination (+Omega Forms)
  • Delfino Plaza
  • Kongo Jungle 64
  • Skyloft
  • Lylat Cruise
  • Town and City
  • Smashville
  • Wuhu Island
  • Castle Siege
  • Halberd
  • Duck Hunt
  • Windy Hill Zone

  • Battlefield
  • Final Destination (+Omega Forms)
  • Yoshi's Island

If you have any ideas to improve on these rules or wish to propose any changes or additions to the above, post it in the Nintendo Network Suggestions Thread for discussion. This is a rule set for everyone so if you have any issues with it don't be afraid to suggest something.

Also special thanks to Ragnarok for helping out with this!
