A Fanfare, or Victory Theme, is a familiar short melody, often remixed, that is played in conjunction with a character's fanfare of the same franchise from the character. For instance, if the character Mario were to win the match, an orchestral remix of the familiar victory fanfare from Super Mario Bros. will play out.
In addition, some characters share the same fanfare, since they are also are from the same franchise, in this case being the Super Mario series. For example, Luigi, Peach and Bowser share the same fanfare as Mario. Thus, if one of these characters other than Mario were to win, the same fanfare will still play*. The original Super Smash Bros., Super Smash Bros. Melee, and Super Smash Bros. Brawl all have victory themes for each of the characters.
