Mimic is a treasure chest enemy with sharp teeth and a tongue. It originates from the Dungeons & Dragons tabletop game, and in the Dragon Quest games, it first appears in Dragon Quest III: The Seeds of Salvation. They often wait in the disguise of ordinary treasure chests before attacking their victim.

In Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, Mimics occasionally appear in the DLC stage Yggdrasil's Altar. disguising themselves as the normal treasure chests found on the floating platforms. When attacked, they reveal themselves and lunge in front of them, dealing great damage. Afterwards, they wander about on the platform attacking any fighters within range, but can be defeated if attacked enough, after which it leaves behind an item.
