For the NES game, see Balloon Fight (NES).


The Balloon Fight stage.

Balloon Fight is a stage for Super Smash Bros. for 3DS.


In its normal form, it is randomly generated, with Clouds , Platforms , and Flippers randomly scattered throughout the stage. Also, the stage's color is randomly chosed from the four in the original game. Just like the original game, getting too close to the water will bring up the Balloon Fish , which will attempt to grab the player and drag them off-screen, causing a KO. Staying on the stage for a while will cause the Clouds to shoot out Sparks , also mimicking the original game.

In the Omega version of the stage, the entire stage will just be one large island that is elevated far out of the water. In this version, all of the other hazards and objects are gone, as is the case with all of the Omega stages.

Omega Balloon Fight Stage

The Omega version of the Balloon Fight stage.


  • While this is the first time that a Balloon Fight themed stage appeared in a Super Smash Bros. game, some of the elements had been seen in previous installments as cameos. For example, the Flipper was seen as a usable item and a trophy in Super Smash Bros. Melee, and the Balloon Fish was a hazard in the Summit stage in Brawl, where it would jump up to eat players who stayed in or near the water for too long.
