Barbara is the mascot of Daigasso! Band Brothers, the Japan-exclusive predecessor to Jam with the Band. She is the arrogant owner of the music shop of Waruwaru Town, GB Music, and helps the player throughout the game. Her first Super Smash Bros.-related appearance is as an Assist Trophy in Super Smash Bros. Brawl, but she does not appear as one in later games.

In Super Smash Bros. Brawl, when Barbara is summoned in a battle via an Assist Trophy, she strums her guitar for a few seconds, releasing sound waves that moderately damages opponents and knocks them back. Her last sound wave is larger and stronger than the other ones.

There is a trophy of Barbara in Super Smash Bros. Brawl and Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS each. In both games, the trophy is obtained at random.

Barbara appears in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate as an Ace-class Grab-type primary spirit. It has three support slots and, when used on a fighter, only boosts their power without granting additional effects. The spirit is summonable with a Rouge the Bat, Prince Saruno, and a grab-type core. A Barbara wig is unlockable in the game for 900G, and can be worn by Mii Fighters.

The manager of the music store GB Music in Waruwaru Town—her real name is Barbara the Bat. She leads the player through the game, showing her arrogant attitude as she cracks the whip at others but pampers herself. Her little brother's name is Tingtin the Bat. By the way, the "GB" in the name of her store stands for "Great Barbara," NOT "Game Boy.

Barbara SSB3DS Trophy Barbara.png Other As the manager of a slightly dubious talent agency, Barbara's always looking for people who want to join a band. She'll even teach you to play—whether you ask her or not. It's best to let her think she's taking advantage of you, even if she really isn't. Her hidden theme music really illustrates the contrast of darkness and light in her soul...or something.
