Matt goes down a rope to the battlefield, then falls on the ground.


Matt has such a massive ego that he can convert it into energy for his moves. It starts off at the halfway point and either increases from dealing damage, taunting, or being healed, or decreases from being damaged or taunting from others nearby. Matt's vanity affects his damage output and affects certain moves.


Matt's vanity is one of his defining character traits, often admiring himself in the mirror and taking any stroke of his ego greatly, and on the flip side anything that crushes his ego makes him feel worse. In Space Face, the concept of the vanity drive is described by Commander Bai as a fuel source for the ship powered solely off the alien's egos. Matt ultimately re-powers, and overpowers the ship with his vanity.

Special Attacks

Neutral B - Vanity Mirror

Matt gets out a mirror to admire his face with. With it out, press B to increase the vanity, stunning opponents nearby. This phase also has its own set of taunts that increase vanity faster, but without the stun. Just don't overheat it, or it explodes. Get hit with the mirror out and you drop it, allowing anyone to pick it up. You can collect it again, but if it leaves the stage, the vanity drops. You'll get it back after 5 seconds. With the mirror out, move to the side and press B to swap it for a mirror that deflects projectiles at the cost of your vanity. At full vanity, it'll become a magic mirror which will shoot out a sword at the cost of some vanity (press B again). The other mirror can be knocked out of your hands. Down and B puts away the mirrors.


Matt always loves to admire himself in the mirror, which gives him an increase in his own ego. In WTFuture, Edd uses a picture of Matt to deflect a laser blast from Future Matt, which is where the deflector part comes from. The appropriately named Mirror Mirror is where the magic mirror originates from, with the short focusing on the mirror.

Side B - Little Tom

Matt gets out his cymbal-playing monkey, winds it up, and then tosses it forth. Hold B to charge up the monkey, giving it an explosive kick. Once it hits the ground, it'll start clanging for a bit before going kaboom. And don't hold it while it plays, even if the symbols deal damage. Instead, toss it away. Non-explosive monkeys can be picked up and tossed around with no damage to Matt's vanity.


The Cymbal-playing monkey appears in Zombeh Nation, to which Matt described as "too predictable" as a zombeh-fighting weapon. The monkey returns in Fun Dead, where Matt names him Little Tom. Tom ultimately throws Little Tom at some zombehs, which blows them up.

Up B - Poltergeist Possession

Matt flies upward and gets tossed awaay by evil purple mist. Keep holding B for consistent floating, then B again to launch him at an angle at the some of some vanity. That could remains for a few, able to toss away opponents who approach it in random directions. Otherwise, tap up at the peak of the lift to go upward.


This comes directly from Hammer and Fail Part 2, where he ends up getting possessed by the poltergeist which came with the roof. The poltergeist ends up lifting Matt in the air, and ultimately leaves his body and throws him to the ground after a dispute about destroying monuments.

Down B - Matt Sucks

Matt becomes a vampire. The transformation will create a black circle around him which will stun nearby opponents. In this state, Matt is slower and can't jump, and fire/light attacks hurt him more. Press B near an opponent to nom away health and have it for yourself which can increase vanity by 10%. Opponents can mash A to escape. Re-input turns you back to human form.


In Matt Sucks, Matt turns into a vampire once he was attacked by one on Halloween night. When he gets back home, he tries to suck Edd and Tom's blood, through very slow movements. His attempts repeatedly get foiled.

Final Smash - Zombeh Nation

A zombie bites off Matt's arm and he now commands an army of zombies. B summons a horde anywhere with solid ground, and you can use the analog stick to move your pentagram. Anyone caught in the horde goes into a seizure and is knocked away. Make sure to steer clear of Matt since he stuns as well as the pentagram as it'll kill you.


This move, while directly paying homage to the original Zombeh Attack trilogy, involves the major plotpoint of Matt becoming a Zombeh and, offended that his friends left him to die, commands an army of zombehs to attack his old friends.
