The ever-popular multiplayer game of Among Us may not have a chance at really getting into Smash Ultimate’s Fighters Pass Volume 2, but some mods have found a way to make it a reality.

With this new mod, Pac-Man transforms into Among Us crewmates, and he actually doesn’t look half bad. Part of the reason is that there are actually two different mods working in unison.

Multiple colors are represented with yellow, orange, red, white, pink, black, blue, and green, so there is a lot of variety with the mod.

In addition to the mod that acts as an alternate costume for Pac-Man, transforming him into an Among Us character, a separate one turns Pac-Man’s ghosts into more crewmates.

The Among Us crewmates come with multiple costumes.

This means that any attack that uses ghosts end up looking like they belong in the game, further adding to the immersion.

Of course, you could use the Among Us cremates on Pac-Man by himself if you would prefer that for some reason.

Sadly, Pac-Man’s other attacks don’t get any major Among Us vibes, so while the crewmates work well appearance-wise, their moveset does look a bit off. It’s weird to see Red or Blue hitting people with fire hydrants, for example.

Impostor moveset concept

However, one user on Reddit may have solved that problem by creating a unique moveset if The Impostor actually made it to Smash.

The unique animation, created by -cooks- features new moves for every possible ability in the game including taunts.

If there ever was going to be an Among Us – Smash Ultimate fighter crossover, this is probably how it would look, combined with the mod.

People over in the Among Us subreddit told me to post here. This is a concept for The Impostor to be in smash. If you have any fixes or ideas post it in the comments! from smashbros

Unfortunately, it’s probably too late for Among Us to come to Smash as an official fighter. The remaining DLC slots were all decided back before the game really started to take off.

Still, while unlikely, maybe we’ll end up getting an Among Us spirit event, Mii Fighter, or with some luck, a third Fighters Pass.

TikTok star Addison Rae might be making a shift from her viral dancing videos to an equally viral gaming trend, after publishing a cryptic tweet tagging some of Among Us’s biggest streamers.

Among Us has become one of the gaming world’s most popular titles, swiftly overtaking the likes of Fall Guys to dominate Twitch and YouTube, bringing with it a ton of the scene’s top personalities.

Pitting players against each other to weed out an impostor among them on a malfunctioning space station, the game requires stealth and excellent lying skills, providing a fun and unique challenge that has brought together a unique slew of gaming streamers to the scene’s forefront.

Names like ‘Corpse Husband’ have become massive entertainers seemingly overnight due to the game’s success, racking up millions of YouTube subscribers for his deep voice and humorous commentary — all without a face reveal.

Corpse Husband is a wildly popular YouTuber who skyrocketed to fame for his Among Us content, although he also narrates True Horror stories and creates music.

Similarly, creators like ‘Dream’ and ‘Quackity’ have also popped up on viewers’ radars, birthing a new generation of YouTube superstars — and it seems like one of TikTok’s biggest creators is looking to get in on the trend.

Addison Rae created a tweet on November 30 that appears to hint at a potential collaboration with Among Us legends. The post itself was simple: tagging Corpse Husband, Dream and Quackity, Rae merely wrote, “Hey.”

However, it seems that her “hey” has caused quite a commotion online, amping up speculation for a possible collaboration between TikTok royalty and gaming’s finest.

It looks like Quakity is all in for the potential collab, who replied to Rae’s post with a cheery, “Hiiii.”

Dream has also responded, merely writing, “Yes hello” — a reply that has since garnered more likes that Addison’s original post.

While it’s unclear if the group is actually getting together for a round of Among Us or not, the possibility is certainly tantalizing for fans, who are all in for this totally unexpected project that seems to have caught both viewers and the creators themselves by surprise.

We’ll just have to see how good Addison is at playing impostor — after all, her constant denial of dating Bryce Hall didn’t exactly have us convinced in the past.
