Super Smash Bros. players who double as Among Us fans will love this concept, with fully-designed mechanics for the Among Us Imposter if they were to become a Smash character.

From Minecraft Steve to Wii Fit Trainer, there have been some strange additions to the Smash lineup over the years. This fan-made concept, if it were to become true, would be one of the most bizarre yet.

The idea of adding the Among Us crewmate to Ultimate has been around ever since the InnerSloth title became mainstream. One player even created a Smash Ultimate mod that saw the Imposter replace Pac Man in the game’s lineup, meaning Among Us crewmates could brawl it out on Summit or Kongo Falls.

However, one talented and creative fan, @charred_lizard, has taken a different stand and looked at how to translate the Imposter’s murder actions into Smash abilities.

The basic premise involves taking the Imposter murder animations from Among Us and turning them into Smash mechanics. The down smash, where the Imposter pulls out his gun, is particularly iconic and would instill a familiar sense of doom in any Smash opponent.

Adding the Imposter to Smash seems unlikely – especially in Ultimate – but it doesn’t feel outside the realms of possibility. Collaboration between InnerSloth and Nintendo is a thing, as Among Us is now supported on the Nintendo Switch.

At the time of writing, the designs have amassed over 13k retweets and a glowing response from the Among Us twitter admins. They were particularly amused by Onyx’s design for the dash attack animation.

We’d be really interested to see what a potential Final Smash mechanic would look like. Maybe we could see the big red Emergency Meeting button being pushed, before the Imposter’s opponent disappears from the map?

Even though The Imposter won’t be joining the Smash lineup anytime soon, there will still be a few more additions – potentially including Rayman –  in the coming weeks and months.

After an unexpected interaction with gaming creators like Quackity, Karl Jacobs, and GeorgeNotFound on Twitter, TikTok star Bryce Hall has said that he’s interested in playing a game of Among Us with Dream.

2020 saw a boom in popularity for both the TikTok community and the gaming community. On the TikTok side of things, there are creators making millions from their social media careers, with countless trends coming from the video-sharing app.

In the gaming community, the sudden surge in popularity of the social deduction game Among Us saw streamers and YouTubers like Corpse Husband and Dream garner extraordinary amounts of attention and, along with Dream’s SMP Minecraft server, have established a huge new community.

Bryce Hall is a hugely popular star on TikTok, currently with almost 18 million followers.

It then only seems to make sense that the two hugely popular (but very different) worlds should collide in some form. Previously, however, popular TikToker and Bryce Hall’s current partner Addison Rae faced backlash from some Dream and Corpse Husband fans, who wanted other creators to be picked over Addison.

Dream commented that the stream was a “blast,” though he did have to turn his chat to emote-only mode to avoid hate.

In another strange turn of events, influencer Bryce Hall who currently has almost 18 million followers on TikTok ended up interacting with a variety of different popular streamers via Twitter, after Dream replied to one of his posts.

Bryce had sent out a tweet that simply read, “Hulu n hangin type of night,” to which Dream tagged Addison Rae and replied, “Is this true?”

Clearly not deterred by the partly negative reaction Addison received, Bryce decided to take his opportunity and quote tweeted saying, “sup Dream, when we playin Among Us?” to which Dream jokingly replied, “when you learn the reply feature.”

And that wasn’t all, some other popular creators got involved with the conversation, Karl Jacobs jumping in to say, “what we watchin?” in reply to Bryce’s original tweet. YouTuber Quackity then asked if he should be following Bryce Hall, to which Bryce replied making fun of his typos.

The interaction was altogether quite wholesome and has got many Dream fans hoping the Among Us game does actually go ahead, as they are eagerly anticipating another stream from the popular Minecraft creator.
