The Super Smash Bros Ultimate roster is one of the largest ensembles in video game history, basically being the gaming equivalent of Avengers: Endgame. Now, the entire cast, including its six DLC fighters, have been brilliantly reimagined in LEGO form.

The stylish reconstruction of the Smash cast was done by Redditor ‘Yuunohu’ using a program called Bricklink Studio.

With some help from the program and his mad skills, every member of the game’s current 76 fighter roster ended up being designed in the style of the LEGO Brickheadz series.

Some of the standouts include Cloud Strife, who comes equipped with his Buster Sword, Olimar with his three Pikmin and ROB, who absolutely deserves an official LEGO redesign.

Pokemon Trainer’s design is neat too, with Charizard, Ivysaur and Squirtle all included alongside him.

Min Min’s addition as the 76th fighter is a nice way to cap it off, as her ARMS even have the dragon attachment.

Even though these LEGO creations were made with a program, it is possible for fans to actually make some of these themselves. It should just be noted that the limited palettes for many pieces make a direct replica near impossible.

However, as Yuunohu further explained, anyone wanting to try their luck with the program is free to do so.

“Studio is suuuuuper versatile, with a huge parts list and has a built-in rendering program,” Yuunohu clarified in the comments.

With Min Min’s addition to the collection and the roster, there are still five more characters to come as part of Fighters Pass Volume 2.

Thus far, there’s no sign of who exactly the remaining cast will be, but given the fact Smash Ultimate has everyone from Solid Snake and Bayonetta to Banjo and Joker, the possibilities are limitless.

Hopefully, whoever the next few fighters are, their LEGO recreations end up being as amazing as the first 76 designed by Yuunohu.

An established Super Smash Bros Ultimate leaker who has leaked several of the game’s fighters before and after launch, including Minecraft’s Steve, has returned with some comments on Ninja Gaiden’s Ryu Hayabusa.

Vergeben, who is one of the most reputable leakers in the Smash community having leaked many of the game’s fighters, was asked about rumors of Hayabusa joining the roster.

The Ninja Gaiden protagonist has long been a fan-favorite to join the Nintendo fighting game, and has even been rumored. Amusingly, he had been discussed even before Fighters Pass Volume 2, along with Minecraft content.

“I remember you mentioned in the past that you heard that there were talks about Ryu Hayabusa being one of the fighters but in the end, he may have been delayed to enter the second wave of DLC,” a user remarked the leaker on GameFaqs.

“Now that Minecraft content finally came and as how Sakurai mentioned he reworked all stages to add the blocks gimmick to the game, it is possible that Hayabusa may also be coming?” the user asked.

To this, Vergeben simply replied: “Stay tuned?”

“I’ll keep looking into it. But the discussions did happen with Koei Tecmo in regards to Smash,” he continued, seemingly confirming that Koei Tecmo was in fact in talks to bring a character to the game.

He further added that due to Nintendo’s positive relationship with Koei Tecmo, it’s unlikely that the discussions “ fell through and didn’t result in anything.”

As it’s been established, the discussions to get Minecraft into Smash took five years, so it’s clear that adding certain characters can be a long process.

This all said, the discussions with Koei Tecmo may also have potentially resulted in a different representative joining Smash Ultimate such as a character from Dead or Alive, Fatal Frame, or even Dynasty Warriors.

Only time will tell if this ends up being yet another thing that Vergeben has been right about.
