Custom Moves are a feature in Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS/Wii U which allow the player to customize each character's special moves. Almost all characters initially only have one of each regular special move available, with the other two variations of each move having to be acquired from finding Custom Parts. The exceptions are Palutena and the Mii Fighters, whose full lists of custom moves are already unlocked. Players can obtain Custom Moves by completing Classic Mode, All-Star Mode, Smash Run, Smash Tour, Master and Crazy Orders. amiibo can also obtain these Custom Moves from picking up the "Custom Parts Bag" (item) whenever they randomly spawn on stage with items (option) enabled, or when winning Custom Moves as prizes for you to use later on. The Custom Parts Bag has a rainbow-colored wrench in the front area.
Obtaining all Custom Moves is one of the 140 Challenges in the Super Smash Bros for Wii U. Obtaining all Custom Moves is also part of a challenge in the Nintendo 3DS version as well. Both challenges can be completed by using a Golden Hammer.
List of Custom Moves
Each character (with the exception of Palutena and the Mii Fighters) can obtain 8 Custom Moves, for a total of 376 collectible Custom Moves.
- Characters were originally intended to have three custom moves, as shown in slides from the game's early development that shows Mario launching two Fireballs at once; it is unknown why this was reduced to one.
- DLC characters do not have custom special moves, only Mewtwo was planned to have them at first but it's unknown why this was never implemented.
- All three Mii Fighters and Palutena are the only characters who have all their custom specials as soon as you start the game.
