Super Smash Bros Ultimate World of Light Unlocks Guide

Unlike the other methods, the path to unlocking fighters in Adventure Mode can be the most rigorous and time-consuming. While some captive fighters can be found relatively quickly in the World of Light’s sprawling map – the bulk of fighters you can unlock are hidden away across the map and beyond – and can take you upwards of 20-30 hours to find them all.

Unique to this mode – you only start with Kirby, and must unlock the rest of the cast including the other original 7 fighters, and each of the Mii Fighters. Any character you unlock in other modes won’t show up here – but those you unlock in the World of Light will show up back in other Smash Modes if you haven’t found them already.
