How Yuga joined the Tourney

Yuga is the main antagonist of The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds. A sorcerer who wields a staff that resembles a paintbrush, he is able to turn people into two-dimensional Portraits. It is Yuga who sets the conflict between Hyrule and Lorule into motion.

As he plans to set his hostile takeover into motion, Lorule rings its invasion alarms on an invasion by strange raptors. Yuga recognizes one as Riptor.

How to unlock

  • Clear Smash the Car Level 4 with Volga.
  • Play 5500 matches.

For both methods, you must fight Yuga at Lorule Castle. Alternatively, you can avoid clashing with him by wishing for him from Porunga or pruchasing him for 580 Smash coins in the Smash Store. After defeating Yuga, wishing for him from Porunga, 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 Lorule's sorcerer obsessed with beauty, Yuga!" He will be seen left of AR-D, right of PD-4, above Tazaru and below Slader.
