Team Fortress 2’s Heavy has topped the largest Super Smash Bros Ultimate fan vote in history to take the crown of most-requested DLC fighter.

The ballot, which consisted of a whopping 22,166 votes, is the biggest fan vote yet, by far. For comparison, earlier this year, Source Gaming conducted a poll that generated 4,327 votes, which, as impressive as it was, still pales in comparison.


Organized by Twitter user TheBallotMan, the poll’s results show a massive differential between first and second place.

Heavy emerged as the most-requested by a wide margin, having received 3,056 votes in total, while Waluigi sat in second place at 1,858.

It should be noted that the last time Dexerto reported on the poll was back when it had 13,000 votes. At that point, Waluigi had 1,143 votes while Heavy only had 611, so there was an overwhelming massive turnout of Heavy supporters since mid-July.

Additionally, Ubisoft’s Rayman dropped one place, falling to third with 1,209 votes. Minecraft’s Steve was fourth at 1,084 rounding out the characters with over 1,000 tallies each.

The ever-popular Sora from Kingdom Hearts sat at fifth with 866 while Kirby’s Bandanna Dee has 842.


Other popular favorites such as Geno, Crash Bandicoot, and Doomguy all made the Top 12. Notably, the Xbox mascot Master Chief and Capcom’s Dante placed at 17 and 18 with 270 and 256 votes, respectively.

While the remaining characters for Fighters Pass Volume 2 have already been decided, it will be interesting to see how many of these list-toppers end up finding their way into Smash Ultimate as DLC.

It’s also possible that Nintendo decides to go ahead with a third Fighters Pass in the future, and if they do, the results of this ballot could end up factoring into who ends up being added as downloadable content.

Nintendo have confirmed that it is possible to change the specific Minecraft biome in Smash Ultimate when fighting on the Minecraft stage. Here’s how. 

Every Smash player looks forward to the announcement of a new Fighter. Previously, it was confirmed that Min-Min from ARMS would be joining the battle and then after that, it was all about Minecraft. 


Following much excitement and speculation, Sakurai confirmed that Minecraft would be joining the Smash roster on October 1. Specifically, the Minecraft pair of Steve and Alex – not the Creepers, Zombies, or other characters. 

On top of the new Minecraft characters and a new selection of Mii Fighter Costumes, the Minecraft DLC will also contain a new stage to fight on – Minecraft World.

If you’re out of the loop, Minecraft World isn’t a Minecraft theme park or such, but instead, it’s just a stage that shows off the different biomes that you find in Minecraft – with the exception of the Nether. 

Selecting Minecraft World as your stage means you’ll get a random biome, but Nintendo have confirmed that you can use button combos to select a specific one. 

The guide was tweeted out by the SmashBrosJP account on October 12, showing the different combos that relate to each biome. You can find the name of each biome and its specific button combo listed below. 


Minecraft Smash stage button combos

  • Village – L + A
  • Birch Forest – L + R + A
  • Savanna – L + L stick Up + A
  • Taiga – L + L stick Right + A
  • Snowy Tundra – L + L stick Down + A
  • Stone Shore – L + L stick Left + A


Using these commands will get you the stage you want, otherwise, the Minecraft World level will be random and throw out one of the six variants.

There are slight differences in each variant thanks to the trees, stones, and land creating height differences, but its nothing too crazy.
