Super Smash Bros icon Gonzalo ‘ZeRo’ Barrios blasted several celebrities for their “painful” Ultimate gameplay, including Fortnite superstar Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins.

In a new YouTube video, the retired Smash pro pulled up a clip of Ninja taking on Jimmy Fallon during a segment on The Tonight Show.

“Ninja has actually mentioned Smash quite a couple times on stream, and everyone probably remembers his tweet where he was like, ‘Smash community, I’m about to do the big stuff, watch out,’ and he never did anything,” ZeRo recalled.

A lot of celebrities play Smash Bros.

As it turned out, however, Nintendo gave the Fortnite star some trouble setting up the event and was in talks with Red Bull to get a tournament of sorts off the ground, though nothing has been announced since.

In their battle (timestamp 13:20 for mobile viewers) Blevins picked Cloud – a fighter he had some love for as a big Final Fantasy fan.

Fallon went on to pick Joker – who was the newest DLC character at the time, something ZeRo thought was a bit suspicious as if it was in Nintendo’s interest for a new fighter to get some exposure.

“Fortnite Ninja, what you doing?” Barrios laughed as he saw the Mixer star charge an F-Smash super early on while Joker wasn’t anywhere near him.

“So far we’re flipping the C-stick, come on, I expected better from the best pro gamer of all time.”

As the match continued, Ninja seemed visibility confused as to where his character was and how the stage worked – something ZeRo couldn’t help but poke fun at the streamer for.

ZeRo even called out PewDiePie’s Smash gameplay.

“I thought you wrote a book!” Barrios mocked, referencing ‘Get Good: My Ultimate Guide to Gaming.’ “What do you mean you never played this level before?”

Throughout the video, the Smash legend also poked fun at Zelda Williams, Teen Wolf star Stephen Ford, Conan O’Brien and even PewDiePie, the latter of which played a modded version of Smash 64 with Xbox controllers.

Hopefully, Ninja’s Smash tournament gets off the ground, or we eventually see some sort of collaboration between the Mixer and Facebook Gaming superstars.

A fan of popular YouTuber Corpse Husband has taken her dedication to the next level by getting an image of his hair tattooed on her, after he posted a picture of a single strand of his hair to celebrate one million Instagram followers.

Corpse Husband is a YouTuber who has experienced a rather abrupt surge in popularity this year, accumulating a wave of new fans after jumping on the Among Us hype, scoring views in the many millions for both his old and new content.

He started YouTube in 2015, and focused primarily on narrating spooky stories online with his mesmerizingly deep voice, though notably has not yet revealed his face.

His viewers are certainly passionate, and even won out against possibly the biggest fandom on the planet when fans of Corpse Husband and BTS tried to see who could ‘ratio’ Mr Beast’s tweet the hardest, with Corpse winning by a tiny margin and securing $10,000 for charity.

Corpse Husband’s sudden rise to popularity has been unprecedented.

But one fan decided to take her support to an entirely new level, after Corpse revealed a single strand of his hair on Instagram.

As he doesn’t ever show his face, fans have naturally become curious as to who the person attached to the incredible voice is, and Corpse has played along with people’s curiosity by doing miniscule reveals of different parts of himself.

First it was #onlyhands, and this time around in celebration of him hitting 1 million followers on Instagram, he revealed a single strand of his hair in a reveal he called #onlystrands. The bizarrely atmospheric black and white image now has over 560,000 likes and counting.

Dedicated fan CorpseBaddie on Twitter decided she wanted to immortalize the image, and did that in the most permanent way possible by actually tattooing the hair strand on her ribs.

The October 25 tweet revealing the tattoo blew up at a rapid rate, and at the time of writing it has garnered over 30,000 likes.

Speaking about the sudden interest in her brand new tattoo, CorpseBaddie sent a message to her favorite creator. “So Corpse Husband this blew up. I have one question, can I play a game of Among Us with y’all?”

Though he has yet to respond, an Among Us collab between the pair would certainly be entertaining for those that have followed her tattoo journey.

The tattoo is just a testament to how unprecedented Corpse Husband’s rise to popularity has been, and this is certainly only the beginning of his fans’ loyalty.
