A Final Form is a type of Final Smash where a character transforms into a stronger variation of the character, with a full moveset and can be controlled as a normal character.
The Final Form's moves become more powerful than the regular ones, some are even infused with a certain element of the character transformed. They also gain completely different attacks and special moves to improve them. These characters take less damage and have knockback resistance, which makes them hard to KO. For some Final Forms, like Kyūbi Naruto, Bankai Ichigo, Super Sonic or Super Saiyan Goku, the transformation can also do damage to characters near them.
In a normal battle, the transformation time is measured with a small yellow bar that appears above the character's damage percentage counter. Once it is empty, the character will return to his normal form.
These are the Final Forms available in the game:
|Goku||Super Saiyan Goku|
There is another type of Final Smash similar to the Final Form, crowned as a Semi-Final Form. A Semi-Final Form also involves the character transforming, however, the character turns into a form whose moveset is not complete and is usually limited to about three attacks. Few of them also gain the same knockback resistance regular Final Forms get.
These are the Semi-Final Forms available in the game:
|Mega Man||Super Adapter|
- It was originally considered by developers, that during the transformation a special tune that matches the Final Form would be heard; for example, Super Sonic's theme from Sonic the Hedgehog 2 would have played once Sonic has transformed. However, it is no longer confirmed to be present in the game.
