Teams are special characters (most unlockable) that can switch between partners, giving the player more characters to use in stages, working together like the Ice Climbers from Super Smash Bros. and the characters from Castlevania: Portrait of Ruin.

While they are two or more characters (2 being easier to use), they use the same life gauge, so defeating the active one will also defeat the other(s). Other downside is that the customization from the teams is more limited compared to their separated versions, some not being customizable at all. For example, "X & Zero" can't use different weapons and armors besides the ones available to them (max. 20 for each).

Team are never selected in random character selections.
