A victory theme, sometimes referred to as a flourish, or a fanfare in Super Smash Bros. Brawl, is a short, recognizable melody that plays at the Results screen after a character wins a Vs. match or other similar events such as a Tourney. For instance, at the Results screen after Mario wins a match, an orchestral cover of the fanfare played at the end of each level in Super Mario Bros. plays. Characters from the same universe share victory themes, though Meta Knight, Rosalina & Luma, Bowser (in Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and 3DS), Bowser Jr., and Dark Pit have distinct victory themes separate from their respective universe's.
