King Ninja (キング忍者, Kingu ninja) appears as a newcomer in Super Smash Bros. 4, revealed during the April 8th Super Smash Bros. Direct. At E3 2014, Sakurai shared that most of the initial roster was established early in development that mandated a new Pokémon character, before Pokémon X and Y was announced. He worked very closely with Pokémon's developers to create Greninja (King Ninja), but most of its moveset was improvised due to Sakurai's only reference being Game Freak's conceptual artwork.
