My brother has a child account on his Switch Lite that is connected to my account on my Switch Lite, and that account is considered to be a parent account. He bought a Super Smash Bros Ultimate DLC that I want to buy.

I am able to buy it, but I’m concerned that if I buy it, it will mess something up.

No, it will not, the character(s) you bought will just be added to the roster in all accounts, no need to battle them first.

  • Hi Roxy, the question doesn't seem to be asking about battling them, rather if buying the DLC again will mess anything up. Commented Nov 19, 2021 at 13:25
  • I think this answer is fine. In addition to simply answering the yes/no question of messing something up, it helpfully describes how the DLC affects the multiple accounts.

This will not break or mess up anything. Your accounts are still separate, even though they are parent/child accounts.
