Other Appearances[edit]

Super Smash Bros. Brawl[edit]

The Infantry appear alongside Tanks in Super Smash Bros. Brawl as a type of Assist Trophy, and as a collectible trophy.

Official Trophy Description[edit]

"Units first introduced in Famicom Wars, where they fight battles against enemy forces. Infantry are the least expensive to deploy of all units. They're not too strong, but they move well and can capture property. There are two tank types: tank A, which is expensive but has good mobility and firepower, and tank B, which is cheaper but can change battles with sheer numbers."

Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS / Wii U[edit]

The Infantry retain their same roles from Brawl.

Official Trophy Description[edit]

"Two units from the Advance Wars series, infantry are best for capturing bases and tanks for fighting the enemy. If summoned, these two form up on the player who activated them. Don't underestimate them just 'cause they're pixels—the infantry's gun and tank's cannon are formidable."
