Norfair is the location in Metroid where the enemy boss Ridley was. There was a lot of magma, and it seemed like a rather hot area.

Norfair is based on the area of the same name on Zebes, including many elements commonly displayed throughout the Metroid series. The stage consists of five platforms arranged in a V-shape, and large walls of magma will occasionally push in from the sides during the fight. Small waves of magma can appear from the background and will damage any players in their range. A very large wave may also arrive from the background, in which case the combatants must jump very high over it, enter a small safety capsule enclosed by two Blue Doors, or use their shield at the right time. The safety capsule is considered the best way to avoid the magma as the room locks when the wave gets too close, leaving any players left outside at the mercy of the magma. Like the previous Metroid-based stages in the Super Smash Bros. series, the main environmental threat is the magma. It will rise and fall periodically, and will rise to any height between just below the bottommost platform to just below the two top platforms. Upon contact, it will send combatants flying upwards. Norfair also adds a couple of twists. The first is a wall of falling magma that will begin to move in from either side, slowly covering the platforms until it leaves only two platforms on the opposite side free. Upon contact with the wall of magma, combatants will be launched very quickly in the opposite direction. The walls of magma and pool of magma below the stage act independently, so it is possible that occasionally the only free platform will the highest, outermost platform on one side.

The second twist is a screen-filling magma surge. The screen will darken, a rumbling sound will start, and sparks will begin flying up from the magma. The safety capsule will also appear at this time (it appears in a random location, and the platforms will move apart to accommodate it if necessary). Then a gigantic eruption of magma in the background will shoot up into the air and create a fast-moving wave of molten rock. The Blue Doors on the safezone will open if they are hit with any attack, and will close just before the wave hits. The safety capsule must be entered before the surge hits the platforms (or the players must dodge the flow in some way), because the magma will damage anyone it hits and send them flying, potentially to a KO.

All of the four thin platforms have grab-able outside ledges and can be jumped up and fallen down through. The central platform cannot be fallen through, but the outside edges can be grabbed. When trying to recover, however, in most cases the rising magma below the platforms will launch the fighters high enough for them to easily reach the platforms without much trouble.

A title update released on January 29, 2015 enabled the use of Norfair in the 8-Player Smash mode of Super Smash Bros. for Wii U.

TriviaEdit

Norfair SSB4U

Norfair in Super Smash Bros. for Wii U.

  • Norfair is where Samus and Zero Suit Samus will be fought most of the time in Classic and All-Star Mode.
  • The background of the stage is a recreation of a room in Super Metroid.
  • The stage features a song from the Golden Sun series of games. In Metroid Prime 3: Corruption, Mogenar's Hand of Ur attack is similar to the Move action from the Golden Sun series (used by Isaac in his capacity as an Assist Trophy in Brawl).
