Fighters are players who participate in the sports of the gods, such as Free For All and Light vs Dark. It is most likely that they are another type of Centurian due to the way they fight in Light vs Dark with Pit or Dark Pit.
In Light vs Dark they are coloured either black or white, depending on the angel leading them. In Free For All they are coloured depending on the favourite colour of the Mii in the game file. This can cause them to go into a total of twelve colours:
- Light Green
- Dark Green
- Baby Blue
 Light Fighter
Light Fighters fight for the Light Team in the sports of the gods. Light Fighters are clad in shining white armour, a sign of their elite status. Despite being on the Light Team, Light Fighters aren't apparently always the nicest guys. They fight with Pit in Light vs Dark.
 Dark Fighter
Dark Fighters fight for the Dark Team in the sports of the gods. Their armour is dark-coloured and is both light and strong. While fierce in battle, Dark Fighters are apparently pretty sweet dudes to hang out with. They fight with Dark Pit in Light vs Dark.
