How Riptor joined the Tourney

Another of Ultratech's miraculously realized concepts: a crossbreed of human and reptilian DNA, resulting in a creature that combines formidable intelligence with sheer brute strength. Nurtured from the egg by a dedicated Ultratech professor and her team, the beast nicknamed 'Riptor' by others has barely reached 4 years of age before it first demonstrates its full savage power in a human kill. Riptor is confused and often finds itself torn between human reasoning and predatory instincts, resorting to attack when it fails to understand the situation, as ever more people find out the hard way.

The Riptor hunted for targets in Lorule. Suddenly, a wizard named Yuga sought to use her for his own schemes.

How to unlock

  • Defeat Adramalech in Classic Mode with Jago.
  • Play 2971 matches

For both methods, you must fight Riptor at the Forgotten Grotto. Alternatively, you can avoid clashing with her, by wishing for her from Shenron, or purchasing her for 400 Smash coins in the Smash Store. After defeating Riptor, wishing for her from Shenron, or purchasing her 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 Riptor, Ultratech's DNA manipulated dinosaur!" She will be seen left of Brandeau, right of Ethel, below Braixen and above Frog.

Raptor Massacre (Final Smash)

Riptor does a stronger Rampage. If she hits, she stuns the prey, then roars, then begins to a series of slashes with her hand and feet claws, then after twenty-nine hits whips her tail four times on the opponent's face, then finishes with a double vertical claw slash that knocks the opponent away. After this, the announcer goes "ULTRAAAAAAAA COMBOOOOOOOOO!"
