Undertale’s Sans has joined the Super Smash Bros. Ultimate roster with the 5.0.0 update – but there’s a twist.

September 4 saw a Nintendo Direct worth writing home about – fans got Nintendo Online SNES games, Banjo Kazooie in Smash, Overwatch on Switch, and more.

Undertale’s Sans was another character added to the Smash Ultimate roster, but not in the way you’d expect.

After the Direct, Smash director Masuhiro Sakurai showed off new features coming to the game – including Sans from Undertale. No, he’s not a playable hero, but rather a skin for the Mii Fighter character.

In a tweet from the pixel art game’s creator, Toby Fox detailed how he is really happy to see his creation in a Nintendo game, and that the character will come with a special music track composed by him.

“Yes. It’s true. You’ll be able to buy a Mii Gunner costume of Sans in Smash Brothers Ultimate later today! It’ll come with a special arrangement of Megalovania composed by me. It’s a huge honor to have something I created in Smash. Thank you so much Mr. Sakurai!!!” he said.

He then explained how he’d met the fighting game’s director in person, and that it was one of the best experiences of his life.

“I wrote more beforehand but I’m so shocked that Sakurai-san talked about our meeting. If he’s going to mention me, then I have to tell everyone that we listened to a CD of Smash music as he drove me home in his car (which I kept calling his Batmobile)” Fox tweeted.

“I didn’t have a translator with me so I had to use my own broken Japanese to talk about Smash. It was one of the most surreal (and fun) experiences of my life. I’ll never forget it.”

Could Undertale come to Smash properly?

While Sans is only available as a skin in Smash, a rumor from August 4 suggests that he might not be the only Undertale character making its way to the fighting game.

A ‘leak’ posted onto internet forum 4chan detailed that Frisk, the game’s main protagonist, will make their way to Smash as a main fighter. 

The leaker did claim that it was hero four though, who we now know is Terry Bogard from Fatal Fury, but it can’t be ruled out now that we know more characters are coming after the Fighters Pass is done.

Undertale released back in 2015, and has become an indie-game staple ever since, with a 10 out of 10 score on Steam and a 93% score on Metacritic.


4 Xbox characters who would make great Smash Ultimate fighters

With Minecraft Steve and Banjo-Kazooie now in Super Smash Bros Ultimate, it’s clear that Microsoft has a pretty good relationship with Nintendo. This begs the question: who else could we see from Xbox make the jump to Smash?

Nowadays, it seems like no character, regardless of whether they’re from an M-rated series or not is off limits for Nintendo’s flagship fighter.

The only criteria that Smash creator Sakurai has is that the character must be from a video game, which is why the likes of Goku or Iron Man haven’t received an invitation to Smash.

That all said, here are four Xbox character we want to see join Smash Ultimate at some point in the future.

Conker reloaded
Conker could be a great Smash addition.


Rare’s anthropomorphic squirrel first made his debut in Diddy Kong Racing on the N64 and went on to star in a couple Nintendo games before Microsoft acquired the developer.

Due to Conker’s history on Nintendo, he seems like a good fit for a future Smash character, especially considering the options available for a moveset.

Conker’s Bad Fur day has the character make use of guns, chainsaws and flamethrowers meaning that his arsenal would be packed in the event he got the green light for a Smash game.

An Elder Scrolls rep would be great in Smash.


Even though Microsoft just bought Bethesda, having an Elder Scrolls rep would be a massive moment for fans of both series and why not opt for Skyrim at that point?

Players could make use of the Dragon Shout as unique abilities while still being prime for melee combat through an assortment of swords and other items.

Nintendo even has some Zelda-themed items within the Switch version of Skyrim so this crossover into Smash could make a lot of sense.

Marcus Fenix from Gears of War
Marcus could be a heavyweight DLC.

The Gears of War protagonist may not be as iconic as the last two names on this list, but he would definitely be a colorful addition to the Smash roster.

With his chainsaws, guns and close-range kill options, Fenix would have a lot of tools at his disposal.

The most unique part is that he could end up being the first heavyweight DLC fighter and completely buck recent trends.

Many fans have wanted Doomslayer/Doomguy in Smash.

Master Chief / Doomguy

We’re going to put both of these two characters together as it’s super unlikely we ever end up getting both.

Master Chief and Doomguy would bring in some great FPS representation mixed in with their sci-fi theme.

Microsoft and Doom’s devs seem pretty keen about wanting these two in Smash, so even getting both to round out Fighters Pass Volume 2 would be a historic moment in gaming history.
