I can modify some attributes and special moves of the characters, but how can I use these customized character in the game? Which game modes allow me to use them?

  • Would it be better to include both versions in the question/title, so people can more easily find the information for both versions?

The following modes allow customised characters to be selected:

  • Smash (Wii U)
  • Solo Smash (3DS)
  • Group Smash (3DS)
  • Special Smash (Wii U)
  • 8-Player Smash (Wii U)
  • Solo Smash Run (3DS)
  • Group Smash Run (3DS)
  • Classic
  • Group Classic (Wii U)
  • Special Orders (Wii U)
  • Training
  • Online With Friends

If anyone has any more to add, please feel free to do so.


To prevent online mode from being unfair, you are limited to being able to use custom characters offline, this includes: Smash, anything in Solo, multiplayer, and pretty much anything else that doesn't require internet. You use these customs by pressing the button that will appear in the upper right hand corner, the fire should turn blue, and if you have customs for a character set when you pick them there should be a menu for you to choose a different set of customs you created. P.S (Stats are also carried in the battle)

  • Like indeed said, this option applies to the 3DS version too?

  • Yes, it does work for the 3DS as well. Commented Dec 20, 2015 at 15:47
  • Also, indeed is right, I forgot about online with friends. Commented Dec 20, 2015 at 15:48
  • Got it …! I have to look for the right upper button and toggle "Custom Fighters" to "ON", in the game modes that show this button in the Characters Select screen … the fire you said is the background color of the characters' pictures … Thanks!

  • @LumaForSmash Could I recommend changing your wording? There are actually a lot of offline modes that don't allow customisations, ie Stadium modes.
