Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS / Wii U
Mother Brain appears as an Assist Trophy in Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS / Wii U. When she first appears, several Rinkas appear that damage opponents, and since they are energy-based, Rinkas can be absorbed or reflected. After some time, Mother Brain then uses the Laser Brain Attack for massive damage. When she uses the attack, however, the glass surrounding her container shatters, allowing opponents to attack and defeat her.
Super Smash Bros. Ultimate
Mother Brain returns as an Assist Trophy in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, having no difference in behavior. She is also featured as a spirit.

- In the Brinstar stage seen in many Super Smash Bros. games, a massive brain can be seen occupying the background, writhing and occasionally sprouting wound-like growths whenever it comes in contact with the acid. Brinstar Depths contains another brain, this one smaller and trapped within a spherical spiked cage. It is unclear if either of these are intended to represent Mother Brain, though they do not particularly resemble any form of hers from the Metroid franchise.
