Party Phil for Smash

Not every event in Super Smash Bros. Ultimateslaps, but this one prominently features Party Phil, so it rules by default.

If you haven’t heard of Party Phil, there’s good reason for that: he was kind of sent off to die in theWii Party series(along with Party Penny), which never really took off. ThisRay Bolger Scarecrow-ass puppet is always ready to go and his entire goal in life is to just pump you up and show you a good time. Who doesn’t love a joyous puppet that speaks gibberish? This dude should be way more famous.

So why is he relevant? Well Smash Ultimate‘s “Suit Up!” spirit event starts on May 17 and will feature dapper characters like Metal Gear Solid‘s Kaz Miller,Animal Crossing‘s Digby, and of course, Party Phil. Or, as Nintendo puts it: “Spirits wearing ties or bow ties bring a touch of class to the Spirit Board in this event. Defeat them in battle to earn extra snacks.”

As a reminder you can use this tool to locate every spirit in the game.

The three-day spirit event “Suit Up!” starts on 17/05!
