Kalypso SSB trophy

Kalypso's trophy as seen in the game Super Smash Bros. Brawl for Wii.

Kalypso appears as a sticker and a trophy in the game Super Smash Bros. Brawl for Nintendo Wii. Both of them are unlockable, and designed after her appearance from the game Donkey Kong Barrel Blast.

  • Trophy descriptions:
    • North American version: "A cool beauty with chic makeup and groovy hair. Kalypso combines enough acceleration to break free from the pack with a respectable top speed. Her cornering is a bit weak, but good players should be able to overcome this. Her claw attack will get you...if her high-pitched laugh doesn't."
    • European version: "A cool beauty with chic make-up and groovy hair. A strong leader figure, she has the full trust of all the Kremling Krew. She boasts excellent reflexes, and is very accomplished in sports and dancing. The clubhouse she owns is regarded as something of an oasis for Kremlings."

Kalypso also appears as a spirit in the game Super Smash Bros. Ultimate for Nintendo Switch.

Physical Appearance[]

Kalypso has pale green skin and a large purple afro. She wears a purple top with a skull design and blue jeans with a skull belt, along with gold jewelry and makeup.


Not much is known about Kalypso's personality, but she has been described as a cool and attractive character, though it's said she has an irritating laugh. Like her fellow Kremlings, she has a dislike towards the Kongs. Kalypso is also described as being a good leader who has the trust of the Kremling Krew, as well as having good reflexes. She is also good at sports and dancing, the latter of which has never been shown in games. Kalypso is said to own a clubhouse which is seen as an oasis by the Kremlings.
