The Nintendo DS universe refers to the Smash Bros. series' collection of stages and properties that hail from the default software on Nintendo's Nintendo DS handheld video game system. There are no characters to hail from it, making it one of the three universes without a playable character.

In Super Smash Bros. Brawl

The Nintendo DS is recognized as its own universe by Super Smash Bros. Brawl.


  • Icon-pictochat
    PictoChat: Based off of the PictoChat software built into every Nintendo DS, this stage evokes the whimsical doodling element of the software. While it is, at its base form, a completely flat stage, scenery and new elements are quickly drawn onto the stage and then erased and replaced as quickly as they appear, creating an ever changing battlefield.


  • PictoChat: An original composition featuring Nintendo DS and Wii menu sound effects.

In Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS and Wii U

The Nintendo DS universe makes a return in Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS. While the original PictoChat stage does not appear, it is replaced by a similar, updated version.

  • PictoChat 2: A new stage similar to the previous PictoChat.


  • PictoChat: Returns unchanged from Brawl. This plays on PictoChat 2 in the 3DS version and on 75m in the Wii U version.
