Ike (アイク, Ike) is a playable character in Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo Switch. His return in Super Smash Bros. 4 was announced in a Director's Room Miiverse post on May 23rd, 2014, which coincided with the ninth anniversary of the North American release of Fire Emblem: The Sacred Stones. Jason Adkins and Michihiko Hagi reprise their roles as Ike's voice actors in the English and Japanese versions, respectively, albeit via voice clips recycled from Super Smash Bros. Brawl.
One of the main characters of the Fire Emblem series. Having fought in the Mad King's War, restored the fallen nation of Crimea and taken on the Begnion Empire, Ike is rightly called a hero. He has the strength to back the title-one good swing of his blade can launch the heaviest of foes.
- Ragnell's flames initially retained their orange coloration from Brawl, but were later recolored as sky blue for the final release of SSB4.
- During Ike's victory pose in which he swings Ragnell twice, his Japanese quote is significantly longer than his English quote. As a result, there is a moment of silence before his name is announced in non-Japanese versions.
- Prior to the release of the game, Ike's Eruption flames were colored orange as in Brawl before being changed to blue flames upon release, in order to fit his in-game title from his origin game, "Hero of Blue Flames".
- Ike is the only playable Fire Emblem character who possesses an up aerial that does not make him backflip, an up smash that is not an upwards stab, and a neutral air that is not a multi-hitting move.
