Which Spirits Can Be Summoned in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate? Here’s a Complete List

Super Smash Bros Ultimate - Luigi

In Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, there are more than 1,300 Spirits to collect, and there are several ways to acquire them. You will earn quite a few by simply playing through the World of Light campaign. You’ll earn even more by completing certain challenges on the Challenge Board, by participating in Spirit Battles on the Spirit Board, by successfully finishing Classic mode, and even by scanning amiibo figures.

But there are two additional ways to get Spirits, and these are reserved for the most advanced Spirit hunters out there. These are Enhancing Spirits to create advanced versions of those Spirits, and by Summoning them. I’ve written an extensive guide to Enhancing Spirits, so I won’t explain that here, but now I want to talk about Summoning.

Summoning allows you to break down Spirits you already have into Cores, which you exchange for other Spirits. There are certain Spirits that can only be acquired by summoning them, so if you want a complete collection, you’ll eventually have to Summon some.

Super Smash Bros Ultimate - Summon

Keep in mind that not all of these are Summonable right out of the box, though it seems like whenever you collect the prerequisite Spirits, the Summon becomes available. Also, you must Release a Spirit in order to collect its core, which means it will be removed from your inventory.

Oh, and there is one Summon that requires another Summonable Spirit — Absolutely Safe Capsule requires a core from the Mr. Saturn Spirit.

I’ve created a full list of which Spirits can be Summoned and the cost of each one.
