Super Smash Bros. Ultimate still has yet to release, but fans are already using the game to create abominations.
YouTube channel MasterofHyrule recently had a wonderful (and terrible) idea: what if every character in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate could perform the default Fortnite dance? Thanks to the help of animator ishmael205 and a few other helpers, the horrific video was born, showing every single Ultimate fighter performing the dance.
The results are… not pretty. The characters with more humanoid proportions can pull off the dance moves fairly well. Link, the Wii Fit trainer, most of the Fire Emblem characters, and even Lucario move smoothly. For most of the video, though, you’ll be watching Mewtwo’s stumpy broken feet, weirdly elongated Mario and Luigi, an abomination of a Pikachu, Bowser with his limbs crunched inward, and worse.
It’s fascinating, in a horrific kind of way, and gives a look at some of the character models in ways they were never meant to be seen. Peach and Rosalina, for example, do have legs underneath their skirts, though they were clearly never meant to be seen. The Koopalings also have legs you’d never normally see from their positions in their ships.
The creator of the video has promised to release the clips of the dances with transparent backgrounds if the video reaches certain popularity markers. We can only fear what future abominations will be made.
Super Smash Bros. Ultimate releases on December 7th for Nintendo Switch. Fortnite Battle Royale is available now on pretty much everything, everywhere, for the foreseeable future.
