What is a PRC file?

A PRC file is a character parameter file used by Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, a popular fighting game for the Nintendo Switch. It controls how in-game characters walk, run, jump, and land, as well as other characteristics. PRC files are used by fighters, assist, and spirit characters.

Each Super Smash Bros. Ultimate character is linked to a PRC file that controls how that character moves and functions within the game. For example, each playable character in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is associated with the file named fighter_param.prc, which controls:

  • How each playable character runs, walks, jumps, and lands
  • Each playable character's weight and height
  • Each playable character's shield radius and duration

Non-playable characters, such as assist and spirit characters, are also associated with PRC files. These characters' PRC files control what boosts they provide to playable characters.

Common PRC Filenames

fighter_param.prc - Controls playable characters' characteristics.

Generate_Param_Assist.prc - Controls the items assist characters generate.

How do I open a PRC file?

You can use the ParamXML utility included in paracobNET (Windows) or the parameter-editing tools available at Smash Ultimate Tools (Web) to open and edit PRC files. ParamXML also allows users to convert PRC files to .XML files.

If you want to use an edited PRC file to control playable characters' behavior in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, you must name the file fighter_param.prc and place it in the game's fighter/common/param directory.
