False Zelda is a supporting antagonist in The Subspace Emissary mode of Super Smash Bros. Brawl. She is an evil clone of Princess Zelda and a commander of the Subspace Army.
After Kirby left Zelda for a few seconds, Bowser turned her into a trophy which was then covered by Shadow Bugs. Shortly after, False Zelda prepares to turn Link and Yoshi into trophies, but is stopped by Mario and Pit. This only occurs if you save Zelda at the Midair Stadium. If you save Peach, False Zelda will be replaced by False Peach.
Later, False Zelda and False Peach appear to stop Meta Knight, Lucario, and Solid Snake from freeing the real princesses, but they are defeated and the princesses are freed from imprisonment.
Being Zelda's clone, she is identical to her in every way, but has very bright yellow eyes and has a purple aura.
- False Zelda is one of the only bosses the player don't beat in Boss Battle, the other two being False Peach and False Diddy Kong.
