“Once in the air, Jigglypuff can jump five times, allowing it to move much quicker than running on the ground. Try to keep opponents in the air and build an advantageous scenario for yourself during battles.”
Tips, Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

Jigglypuff is a Normal/Fairy-type Pokémon (the latter type having only been introduced in Generation VI) and a fighter in every Super Smash Bros. game, starting with the first Super Smash Bros., and usually has to be unlocked first. Jigglypuff's first appearance was in Pocket Monsters Red and Green Versions, released internationally as Pokémon Red and Blue Versions. Classified as the Balloon Pokémon, Jigglypuff evolves from Igglybuff and into Wigglytuff in the Pokémon franchise.


Super Smash Bros. series

Super Smash Bros.

Jigglypuff's appearance from Super Smash Bros.

In Super Smash Bros. Jigglypuff is one of the four unlockable characters, unlocked by clearing 1P Game once, and then defeating it on Saffron City. Jigglypuff is voiced by Rachael Lillis in English and Mika Kanai in the original Japanese, its respective voice actors in Pokémon media.

Jigglypuff was designed to be the weakest character in the game.[1] Jigglypuff is the lightest playable character; while it has up to five midair jumps, tied with Kirby for the most, Jigglypuff can also be launched the easiest. In addition, when Jigglypuff's shield breaks, it is launched higher into the air than any other character, potentially KOing it. Jigglypuff also has a high air speed and the lowest falling speed, but also has low walking and dashing speeds. Its attacks are also slow and weak.

Jigglypuff's neutral special is Pound, in which it slaps its opponents. Its up special is Sing, which puts nearby opponents to sleep, and its down special is Rest, which sends any opponents close enough flying but puts Jigglypuff to sleep. Like Pikachu (and several other Pokémon in subsequent installments), Jigglypuff's stage entrance involves it appearing from a Poké Ball.

For unknown reasons, the Japanese version of the game has both "Purin!" and "Jigglypuff!" announcements, the former being its Japanese name.

Super Smash Bros. Melee

Jigglypuff SSBM icon.png

Jigglypuff returns in Super Smash Bros. Melee. According to its page on the Japanese website, Sakurai was torn over whether to have Jigglypuff return or not, but kept it so as to not leave behind fans of the character.[1] Like in the original Super Smash Bros., Jigglypuff can be unlocked by clearing Classic or Adventure with any character, or by playing 50 Melee matches, and then defeating it on Pokémon Stadium.

Like other re-introduced characters, Jigglypuff's neutral special move, Pound, was made into its side special move, and its new neutral special move is Rollout, which allows Jigglypuff to charge an attack in which it rolls across the screen. Its air speed has been increased for this game, giving it the highest air speed of any character. All of Jigglypuff's jumps also now give height, though the height given decreases as it continues to jump.

Super Smash Bros. Brawl

Jigglypuff SSBB icon.png

In Super Smash Bros. Brawl, Jigglypuff returns as an unlockable character once again. It can be unlocked by clearing at least 20 Event Matches after finishing The Subspace Emissary, playing 350 Brawl matches, or by having it join the party in The Subspace Emissary. Similar to the previous game, Jigglypuff (along with Wolf and Toon Link) was nearly cut from the game due to time constraints.[2]

While Jigglypuff's general moveset is unchanged, it has been given a Final Smash, Puff Up. Jigglypuff increases in size dramatically, bouncing players off of it at great speed.

Adventure Mode: The Subspace Emissary
Jigglypuff's Adventure Mode: The Subspace Emissary intro

Like Toon Link and Wolf, it makes a rather minor Subspace Emissary appearance, and is the only veteran character who does not appear in the main story of the Subspace Emissary. After finding a red door in The Swamp stage, the player will be taken to Pokémon Stadium 2 and fight Jigglypuff in a one-stock match. Once defeated, it will join the player's party.

Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS / Wii U

Jigglypuff's artwork for Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS / Wii U

Jigglypuff returns once again as an unlockable character in Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS, and for the first time as a default playable character in Super Smash Bros. for Wii U. It can be unlocked in the Nintendo 3DS version by collecting 30 pieces of equipment or by winning 120 matches, and Jigglypuff the only unlockable Pokémon fighter in the game. All of its moves and its Final Smash from Super Smash Bros. Brawl are kept in this game.

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

Jigglypuff's stock icon

Jigglypuff appears as an unlockable playable character in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. Compared to Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS / Wii U, it moves faster on the ground and in the air, and many of its attacks are more powerful. In addition, Jigglypuff makes an angry expression during its Puff Up move.

World of Light

Jigglypuff is not seen when the fighters oppose Galeem for the first time. However, it is hit by one of Galeem's beams of light and imprisoned in the World of Light like the other non-DLC fighters (except for Kirby), and multiple puppet fighters of it are created. The actual Jigglypuff is eventually defeated, awakening it, and it joins Kirby's team in the battle against Galeem and Dharkon.

Classic Mode route

Jigglypuff's Classic Mode route is themed on the original Super Smash Bros..

Jigglypuff appears as one of the Costume Mario costumes in Super Mario Maker, which can be unlocked either by using the Jigglypuff amiibo or by clearing 100 Mario Challenge on Normal difficulty or greater. Its sprite is based on the overworld sprite in the Nintendo DS Pokémon games. Like the other Pokémon costumes, Jigglypuff does not have any altered sound effects.

Profiles and statistics

Super Smash Bros.

  • Data: The Balloon PKMN with the big, round eyes. It sings a soothing melody, sending those that hear it to sleep. When mad, it puffs itself up. As a Balloon PKMN, its body is light, weak, and easy to knock away.

Super Smash Bros. Melee


Name Image Game/moves Description
SSBM Trophy Jigglypuff (Classic).png Pokémon Red & Blue
This balloon Pokémon invites its opponents in close with its big, round eyes and then puts them to sleep with a soothing lullaby. It puffs itself up when angry, and while it may look adorable, it's not to be trifled with; it knows several powerful techniques. Jigglypuff evolves into Wigglytuff after exposure to a Moon Stone.
Jigglypuff [Smash]
SSBM Trophy Jigglypuff (Adventure).png B Button: Rollout
Smash B: Pound
Jigglypuff's normal attacks are weak, and because of its light weight it's easily sent flying. However, with its incredible midair agility, it seems to dance when airborne. Rollout is a powerful speed attack, but be careful not to fly off the edge. Pound does serious damage, and it can also help as a recovery move.
Jigglypuff [Smash]
SSBM Trophy Jigglypuff (All-Star).png Up & B Button: Sing
Down & B: Rest
Jigglypuff can put its enemies to sleep if they are in range of its Sing attack, although the attack does not work on airborne foes. Rest puts Jigglypuff into a deep sleep, but at the instant it drops off, an intense energy force radiates out of the exact center of its body. If this force comes in contact with an enemy, look out! Rest is Jigglypuff's wild card.

Super Smash Bros. Brawl

Snake's codec

  • Snake: Aw, there's a big eyeball walking around here...
  • Colonel: That's just Jigglypuff.
  • Snake: Jigglypuff? Is that some kind of marshmallow?
  • Colonel: Jigglypuff is a balloon-shaped Pokémon. It may be light and puffy and full of air, but its Sleep ability is devastating.
  • Snake: Sleep...? What's so devastating about it going to sleep?
  • Colonel: The instant it falls asleep, there's a huge buildup of energy in its center of gravity. If it hits you, it's lights out for sure.
  • Snake: So it puts a lot of energy into sleeping? Sounds pretty irresponsible if you ask me.
  • Colonel: Takes all kinds, Snake. Especially here in Brawl.

A Balloon Pokémon. It invites opponents in close with its big, round eyes, then puts them to sleep with a calming song. The secret to the song's unfailing efficacy is Jigglypuff's ability to sing on the wavelength that will make its opponent the sleepiest. It also uses Attract to infatuate opponents who touch it. It uses a Moon Stone to evolve into Wigglytuff.

They'll even take damage after being hit! It's a pretty challenging move to land, though, and it leaves Jigglypuff wide open to revenge. Be careful when you use it.
Flag of Europe.png When you use the Rest down special, you go into a deep sleep, as you'd expect. But if anyone is touching you when you do it, you'll inflict a lot of damage and launch them directly upwards. They even continue to take damage afterwards. It's not easy to pull off, though, and falling asleep leaves you open to attacks, so be careful.

Palutena's Guidance

  • Pit: That's Jigglypuff, the Balloon Pokémon.
  • Viridi: Look at the way it floats! It must be light as air.
  • Palutena: Don't let its cuddly appearance fool you. It's one of the most aerodynamic fighters out there. And it has a deadly attack called Rest. When Jigglypuff lands the move, the effects can be devastating.
  • Viridi: However, that move does render Jigglypuff vulnerable for a short period of time afterward.
  • Palutena: So when you see Jigglypuff start to fall asleep, that's your cue to move in for the kill.
  • Pit: Gotcha. I'll be sure to keep an eye out for when it nods off.


  • This Normal- and Fairy-type Pokémon is best known for its soothing singing, which can make foes fall asleep. The secret to the song’s effectiveness is Jigglypuff’s ability to sing on the wavelength that will make its opponent the sleepiest. It also uses Attract to infatuate foes of the opposite gender.
