Unlike the other methods, the path to unlocking fighters in Adventure Mode can be the most rigorous and time-consuming.

While some captive fighters can be found relatively quickly in the World of Light’s sprawling map – the bulk of fighters you can unlock are hidden away across the map and beyond – and can take you upwards of 20-30 hours to find them all.

Warning: Location-Based Spoilers are contained below – read at your own risk!

Unique to this mode – you only start with Kirby, and must unlock the rest of the cast including the other original 7 fighters, and each of the Mii Fighters. Any character you unlock in other modes won’t show up here – but those you unlock in the World of Light will show up back in other Smash Modes if you haven’t found them already.

Below you’ll find our list of the general areas in which to find fighters in the World of Light. For more detailed information, see our Adventure Mode – World of Light Walkthrough.

The following characters can only be unlocked once you have cleared the first area in the World of Light and fought Galeem, and made your way into the Dark Realm. Note that many of these characters are found in one of the three main dungeon zones, and can be tricky to get to, and are much tougher to unlock than those in The Light Realm.
