Smash Run (JP) is an mode for Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS. It shares many similarities with City Trial in Kirby Air Ride. The four players scour a dungeon looking for power-ups for a competition at the end. Players can also earn Smash Run Powers, Customized Moves, Equipment, Mii Costumes and Trophies as random drops during a Smash Run


There are six kind of stats that the player can improve from collecting power-ups that help in various ways. They have a maximum of 1000. They are:

  • Speed- How fast the character moves
  • Jump- How high can the character jump. Seems to increase falling speed
  • Attack- Boosts the power of normal attacks
  • Special- Boosts the power of special attacks
  • Arms- Boosts the power of grabs and projectiles and item attacks
  • Defense- Increases launch resistance


Players choose these powers prior to starting a match. They act similar to the powers from Kid Icarus: Uprising. Some powers include:
