Special Quotes

  • Make time go faster! (When fighting Xiaoyu or Byakuya)
  • Finally! I found myself a squirrel! (When fighting Sandy)


  • Veruca Salt has the shortest backstory of every character in all of the Super Smash Bros. Tourney series.
  • Although her design is based on her appearance in the 2005 film, her idle pose references the 1971 film. Contrary to this, her gameplay voice is her voice from the 2005 film and her cutscene voice is her voice from the 1971 film. She is the only child from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory to have this trait.
    • The Oompa Loompa song that was sung after Veruca's elimination in the 2005 film is Veruca Salt's credits minigame theme, but the I Want it Now! song is nowhere to be found in Super Smash Bros. Tourney and its sequel.
  • Super Smash Bros. Tourney marks the first time Veruca Salt falls asleep. She falls asleep in her fourth victory pose and at the end of her ending when she tried to ask what she wanted from her father but fell asleep before she could tell him what she wanted. She snores in both portions.
    • Unlike the other characters who fall asleep when they do a victory pose or in an ending, Veruca produces Zs while she's asleep.
  • In the 1971 film, Veruca Salt's elimination from the Willy Wonka's tour was because she was a bad egg. The same thing happened for her elimination in the 2005 film; only this time, she was a bad nut. For Super Smash Bros. Tourney and its sequel, she was eliminated by sinking into a quicksand pool and getting sucked under after some time in the ending of Mario. The latter elimination happened in a jungle during a safari, not in Willy Wonka's chocolate factory.
  • Veruca is the only female child from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory to be avaiable at the start of the game.
  • The rival of Veruca Salt is Byakuya.
