(This article is about the Game & Watch game. You may be looking for the Judge from Chrono Trigger.)

Judge is a Game & Watch game released in 1980. In the game, two judges face off by trying to attack the other when they have the highest number on their sign. When one judge attacks, the other will be able to dodge.

In the Super Smash Bros. series

Judge is Mr. Game & Watch's Side B in every Super Smash Bros. game he appeared in starting in Super Smash Bros. Melee. Each number of his judge does a certain effect and different amounts of damage and knockback.


  • An error would often times occur in the game's multiplayer mode. If the second player got the highest number but ran, player one would get two points, though if the first player did so, the second would only get one. This was addressed in a leaflet and was taken out in the game's re-release.
  • There is another version of Judge that the buttons are instead in English and Japanese. This version is rarer than the Japanese buttoned one.
