How Brighton joined the Tourney
In the hopes of fulfilling her dream of creating the perfect sleepover party, Brighton came to Japan with the Robotic Operating Buddy. After she enrolled in Mishima Polytechnic, which was founded and head by Lex Luthor, she befriended Kisame Hoshigaki and developed feelings for him. Years later, Kisame became the head of Mishima Zaibatsu and proclaimed a state of independence and war on the rest of the world. After Brighton found out about Kisame's sudden turn for the wicked, she resolved to try and help him mend his ways.

Players can avoid clashing Brighton by purchasing her from the Smash Store for 1700 Smash Coins. In Tourney 2, players can also avoid clashing with her by wishing for her from Shenron. For all of the aforementioned requirements, the player will have to fight Brighton at Twin Top. Upon defeating her or after purchasing her, 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 Brighton Hertford, she doesn't show any mercy!" She will be seen right of Zero-Two, left of Vanessa Croft, above Peter, and below Geo.
