How Verse joined the Tourney
Verse is an entity that emerged when Ash Crimson erased himself and Saiki from spacetime. It is one of many beings created from eternal negative energy; it and its kind thrives from the darkness of people's wishes. Within its being, it traps numerous fighters' souls from many ages. If the countless Verses were to combine into one, the world will fall into turmoil.
This Verse's manifestation has already caused time anomalies. A fragment of Verse is inside Shun'ei. Its presence compelled Nakoruru to traverse through spacetime to defeat it.
When this Verse is defeated, the souls inside it are released and a worldwide search for revived fighters commences. The Another World team's ending suggests its future revival. Verse's ending shows its remains landing at Australia's Ayers Rock.
Upon being reborn in Nintendo Land, Verse makes a pact with the Enchantress to gather souls.

After defeating Verse, wishing for him from Black Star Shenron, or purchasing him from the Smash Store, the announcer will say "Someone else has joined the Tourney!" after a Smash Ball appears on the lower-right corner of the screen with a message saying "You can now use the entity made of negative energy, Verse!" He will be seen right of Shredder, left of Zaheer, below Cooler and above Pilaf Machine.
