Every Smash Ultimate fighter reimagined as LEGO

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.

New Smash Ultimate fighter theory rules out fan-favorites as next DLC

A new theory in the Super Smash Bros Ultimate community suggests that the next DLC character won’t be one of the popular favorites for Fighters Pass Volume 2.

The theory has to do with the latest tournament event announced by Nintendo. As revealed on November 24, the upcoming tournament will only feature fighters who have a form of headwear such as a hat or helmet.

Normally these events come and go with fans not really reading too much into them, but there is a good chance that Nintendo would want a new fighter to partake in an event such as this.

Basically, if the next DLC fighter was going to be a character such as Doom Slayer, Geno or Ryu Hayabusa, they would have qualified for this event. As such, it would have made more sense to save this tournament until after they released.

Over on the popular forum Smashboards, fans started speculating what this could mean for future DLC.

“The tourney suggests that the next fighter does NOT have a hat, since they cannot be included,” wrote user Aerospherology.

“Considering Mega Man is also there, this includes helmets too,” another pointed out.

The headgear event includes helmets such as Megaman’s.

User pupNapoleon further noted that this would rule out Master Chief, Doom Guy, Excite Biker, Balloon Fighter and Mach Rider.

Furthermore, when considering full hoods, Mortal Kombat’s Scorpion and Ninja Gaiden’s Ryu Hayabusa get deconfirmed.

There are still four more DLC spots left.

While the odds seem to definitely be against Geno for now, on the bright side, this could be a good sign for a fighter such as Crash Bandicoot who has long been rumored for Smash DLC.

Of course, this is still just a theory and it’s more than possible that the next fighter ends up coming with a hat or helmet. Nonetheless, it’s something to consider when thinking about just who the eighth DLC character to join the Smash Ultimate roster will actually be.
