A victory theme, also known as fanfare or flourish, is a short excerpt from a song that plays whenever a Versus match is won. Due to its absence in Super Smash Flash, it was first added in Super Smash Flash 2. Like the Super Smash Bros. games, Super Smash Flash 2 includes a different fanfare for every series, inspired by the universe the character comes from. It is normally a stage clear or victory theme from a game the character previously appeared in, but there are some exceptions.

Early victory themes
|This article/section contains information pertaining to unused content from games and similar media.
The subject was never implemented into the game or was removed, cut or altered at some point of its development, and this article pertains to its original implementation.
Prior to demo v0.9b, it was originally planned for each character to have a unique victory theme, more closely associated with the character rather than a common theme for each series. Most of these themes were ripped straight from their source games and media and only a couple of them were arranged especifically for the game at the time of the original release. Even after the release of v0.9b some themes were still subject to be changed sometime in the future. Below is a listing for said victory themes, accompanied by a description and the original demo version it was introduced and sounded for.

- Wario is the only character who has a completely different victory theme than the one he has in the official Super Smash Bros. games.
- The FINAL FANTASY victory theme is also used in Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS and Wii U as Cloud Strife's victory theme. The only difference is that in SSF2 the theme only plays the firsts part of the flourish while in Super Smash Bros. for 3DS and Wii U the theme plays the first part of the flourish and keeps playing the rest of the theme indefinitely, replacing the results screen music.
- Meta Knight's and Mr. Game & Watch's victory themes are taken directly from Super Smash Bros. Brawl and Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS and Wii U, making them the only veterans to have a victory theme that has not been altered in some shape or form at the moment.
- Similarly, Naruto's victory theme is taken directly from the anime of the same name, making him the only newcomer to have a victory theme that has not been altered in some shape or form at the moment.
- Given the fact above, Naruto remains the only character to always have had the same victory theme in all versions released for the game after the introduction of this feature in v0.7.
