Magicant (Japanese: マジカント Magicant) is a stage in Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS and Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. This stage is based off of Magicant from EarthBound Beginnings, while also having several references from EarthBound. It is Ness and Lucas's home stages, and Ness is fought here for his unlock battle in Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS.

Unlock method

Play 10 vs mode matches and it will be unlocked alongside Ness in Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS.

In Super Smash Bros. Ultimate it is available at the start.

Layout

Magicant is made of four pink clouds that act as semi-soft platforms: one in the center as the main platform, and one each to the left and right of the stage, with the one on the right raised higher than the left. At the bottom of the stage is one small cloud platform. Every so often the Dungeon Man will walk along the bottpm of the stage while the lower-most platform disappears.

Several different obstacles can appear on the stage: a tree acting as a static soft platform, a giant tomato and octopus statue which will sink through the stage, attacking the tomato will cause it to break while the octopus statue will sink faster, a giant Mobile Sprout which walks across the stage acting as a soft platform, and the Sky Runner which temporarily floats above the stage as the only solid platform.

On the right platform is the Flying Man house: one will appear outside the house at a time and will assist the first player to reach them or attack them. They are powerful characters that can KO any opponent easily and can recover almost every time. However if attacked enough they can be knocked of the stage and KO'd, and a grave stone will appear near the house. Once one is defeated another one will later spawn and take its place. There are only five Flying Men and once all are defeated, no more will spawn.

EarthBound references

This stage is based off of Magicant EarthBound Beginnings and has many references to it. Much like said location this stage is made of pink clouds and has seashell like houses throught the land.

There are also minor references to EarthBound's Magicant as well, such as the giant tomato, the design of the Flying Man house and the Flying Men themselves.

Flying Men appear in both versions of Magicant and there are five in total. The idea of there being only five Flying Men references in how both EarthBound Beginnings and EarthBound once one faints they are gone for good.

While not actually appearing in Magicant itself, Mobile Sprouts, an octopus statues, the Sky Runner, and the Dungeon Man make an appearence on this stage.

The sky can occasionally "rip" and show various parts of EarthBound Beginnings and EarthBound:

  • Ness, Paula, Jeff, and Poo in Lumine Hall with the text "I'm Ness..." scrolling on the wall, the text has a different font than in EarthBound.

The idea of the rip showing different moments from the adventures in EarthBound Beginnings and EarthBound may be referencing how Ness meets characters and is reminded of different moments from his adventure in Magicant.

In Ultimate the aesthetics of the stage has been noticeably updated, now more closely matching its appearence in EarthBound Beginnings, and also having a having an aroura in the sky.

Trivia

  • Despite Queen Mary's Castle being a significant part of Magicant, it is strangely absent from Super Smash Bros.
  • The Sky Runner is missing a small portion on the back.
  • In Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, zooming in to the interior of Dungeon Man's model reveals the remnants of Brick Road, the man who built and became Dungeon Man.
  • Despite the octopus statues being changed to pencil statues in the localized version of EarthBound, it was left unchanged in Super Smash Bros.
  • The Flying Men were originally going to have a 3D model[1] in the stage, however it was replaced with 2D sprites due to the hardware limitations on the 3DS. Interestingly the Flying Men still use the 2D sprites in Ultimate despite the Switch's improved hardware.
