How Hulk joined the Tourney
Bruce Banner was a scientist who was exposed to radiation during an explosion in a lab he worked at. After being fired, he was tested to see if the radiation would have any affects on him, but it was shown that it would do him no harm. He believed that it had somehow affected him on a genetic level. Afterwards, he fathered Bruce Banner, who he viewed as a monster for being so unnaturally smart. Bruce and his mother were abused by Brian until the day his mother was murdered by the father in a drunken rage. This traumatic incident caused Bruce to suppress his emotions, especially his anger. He met a woman named Anna Williams, who worked at Kyoto International School as the principal. When Anna said that Bruce wasn't welcome at the school, Bruce became the Hulk, and he smash the entire principal's office to bits! Anna and the Hulk decided to settle things once and for all in the Smash Bros. Tourney.

- Hulk was one of the first two Marvel Comics hero characters to be confirmed as playable characters in Super Smash Bros. Tourney. Ghost Rider was confirmed alongside him.
- Hulk is the very first character in any franchise to have Heihachi Mishima's jumping backbreaker as a victory pose. Heihachi himself retained his jumping backbreaker later in the series' development (albeit as a hidden victory pose) and more characters got the aforementioned jumping backbreaker as the two game were still in development.
- Hulk has received six different counterparts for Super Smash Bros. Tourney and its sequel.
- Solomon Grundy from DC Comics is the first counterpart. Unlike the Hulk, Grundy is a villain.
- The Spinosaurus from Jurassic Park is the second counterpart. Unlike the Hulk and Solomon Grundy, the Spinosaurus is not human.
- Ogre from Tekken is the third counterpart. Unlike the Hulk and his first two counterparts, Ogre does not have two arms, rather a regular and a bunch of snakes entwined together for an arm.
- Bonkers from Kirby is the fourth counterpart. Unlike the Hulk and his first three counterparts, Bonkers is not voiced by Fred Tatasciore.
- Binyah Binyah from Gullah Gullah Island is the fifth counterpart. Unlike the Hulk and his first four counterparts, Binyah Binyah originates from a kid's show universe.
- Sarah Marduk from Sarah and Duck is the sixth counterpart. Unlike the Hulk and his first five counterparts, Sarah is a female. The reason why she is the Hulk's third counterpart is because she has a hard time with speaking human language.
- As Bruce Banner, Hulk shares his English voice actor with Abomination, the Moon Knight, and Gentleman Ghost.
- As the Hulk, Hulk shares his English voice actor with Bentley, Bane, the Thing, his Tekken counterpart, his DC Comics counterpart, and his Jurassic Park counterpart.
- As the Hulk, Hulk shares his Japanese voice actor with Dr. Bosconovitch, Shuma-Gorath (due to Keaton Yamada being too old), Ashnard, Lu Meng, and Bio Rex.
- Hulk says "Hulk is STRONGEST THERE IS!!!" in two different parts of the game, both with a different style.
- During his down taunt, it's the same style as Marvel vs. Capcom 3: Fate of Two Worlds.
- During his third victory animation, it's the same style as the Marvel Cinematic Universe film called Next Avengers: Heroes of Tomorrow.
- Anna is the Hulk's default rival. Anna is also the Hulk's second rival. Combot is the Hulk's midgame opponent for the sequel.
