Magicant is a stage in Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS and is the only stage from the EarthBound universe in the game. It is also playable in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. It appears to more closely resemble the Magicant from EarthBound Beginnings in appearance (although the game claims it from EarthBound).

Magicant's Battlefield Variation

The stage consists of four pink clouds which act as semisoft platforms: a main, large one in the middle, two smaller elevated ones near the sides, and a small one near the bottom.

Dungeon Man sometimes appears under the stage, slowly walking from one site to the other, with only his head being visible and acting as a moving platform. While he is under the middle platform, the small platform near the bottom disappears.

Several elements also occasionally appear on the middle and left platforms:

  • a tree, which acts as a static soft platform.
  • a Mobile Sprout which walks back and forth, acting as a soft platform.
  • the Sky Runner, which quickly drops down, remains suspended above the stage for a while and quickly rises back up into the sky. It is completely solid. It can be forced to rise up early if it is kicked upwards by a Flying Man.
  • a tomato or an octopus statue which act as solid obstacles. They appear suddenly on a platform and slowly sink into it until they fall down. Characters hit by them while they fall take 20% damage. Attacking the tomato enough makes it break into pieces, while attacking and/or standing on the octopus statue makes it sink faster. If they fall on Dungeon Man's head, the tomato breaks, while the octopus statue will just abruptly disappear.

Flying Men sometimes appear on the right platform, in front of the shell-shaped house. If a character walks by him, the Flying Man will fight alongside them, akin to an Assist Trophy. The Flying Man can be defeated by other characters by knocking him off the stage or inflicting enough damage (if the latter happens, the Flying Man lies on the ground, flashes and disappears): following this, a small tombstone spawns in the background, in front of the house; after some time, another Flying Man will spawn in the same location, repeating the process. After all five Flying Men have been defeated, they will not spawn for the rest of the match.

Occasionally in the background of this stage, a "rip" in the sky opens and shows various points in Ninten's and Ness' adventures in their respective games:

  • Ninten outside his house with his dog, Mick.
  • Ninten on the roof of Twinkle Elementary School meeting Lloyd.
  • Ness and Paula traveling in Threed with citizens and enemy zombies in the area.
  • Ness, Paula, Jeff and Poo at the Lumine Hall sanctuary with the scrolling text on the wall reading, "I'm Ness...". The text, however, has a different font than in EarthBound.
  • Ness, Paula, Jeff and Poo walking near the Phase Distorter 2 in Saturn Valley before their departure to fight Giygas.

In Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS, The rip does not occur when playing Local Wireless or Online.

Ω forms and Battlefield form[]

In Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS, the platform is an extended version of the regular form's middle platform, and it is a hard platform as opposed to being a semisoft platform as in the regular form. Flying Men and Mobile Sprouts are absent, but the rip still occurs.

In Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, the main platform of the Battlefield form and Ω form is similar to SSB4's Ω form; however, it is slightly redesigned and is resized and reshaped to match Final Destination and Battlefield, respectively. The three soft platforms of the Battlefield form are also made of pink clouds and are unique to this form.
