With many Super Smash Bros Ultimate fans requesting Kingdom Hearts’ Sora and Nier’s 2B among others as DLC fighters, a talented artist showcased what they’d look like if absorbed by Kirby.

Since the very first Smash Bros game back on the Nintendo 64, Kirby has been able to gain his opponents’ powers by absorbing them with his neutral B attack. Each time he does so, the pink fighter gets a new hat on his head to indicate the character he just inhaled and copied.

This has continued with each new Smash game, and with Ultimate’s roster being the franchise’s largest yet, Kirby has more hats than he could possibly know what to do with.

2B has a been a popular request for Smash Ultimate.

‘Franmm127’ on Twitter, has created a wealth of crossover-themed art – and there’s no better crossover than Super Smash Bros Ultimate, where characters from almost any title can enter Nintendo’s flagship fighter. Thus, it comes as little surprise that the artist decided to reimagine Kirby after absorbing some popular DLC candidates.

The adorable artwork consists of nine new versions of Kirby, each with their own charm. The top row features Nier Automata’s 2B, Travis Touchdown from No More Heroes and the ever-popular and rumored DLC Dante from Devil May Cry.

In the middle row, Francis turned Kirby into Doomguy, Sora from Kingdom Hearts (who sadly most likely won’t be coming to Smash) and Crash Bandicoot, who is also rumored to be part of Fighters pass Volume 2.

Finally, the last row turns Kirby into Geno from Super Mario RPG, Shantae and Ryu Hayabusa.

The art was extremely well-received on Twitter. earning over 2,000 retweets and neatly 10,000 likes.

Many fans have wanted Doomslayer/Doomguy in Smash.

With so many fan-favorite DLC fighters floating about in the game’s community, it’s hard to imagine a world where some of them don’t join the battle – especially with there only being five-character spots left after the ARMS fighter is released.

While we still have no confirmation on who the ARMS fighter will be, a recent leak has suggested that it will be Spring Man, graduating from Assist Trophy status, and will be revealed on June 16 to mark the three year anniversary of ARMS on Switch.

Twitch star Felix ‘xQc’ Lengyel unleashed his signature rage on Smash Online as lag cost him the chance to potentially win a game. 

As one of Twitch’s most popular streamers, xQc garners a huge audience anytime he goes live – and especially when he tries out a new game too.

Some viewers might be there to get his actual take on the game, to see if it’s worth buying themselves if its a new release, but others are there hoping to see him completely lose his mind and lash out at how bad it is, in a way that only he can. 

During his November 27 stream, the former Overwatch League star dove into the world of Smash Online, and while he managed to win a game, he wasn’t exactly overjoyed by the experience.

xQc is never one to shy away from giving his opinion on things.

After a nearly five-minute-long fight, where he was using Cloud against Lucina, the Candian lost it as lag started to hamper the game – preventing him from pulling off moves or avoiding his opponent. 

As he was defeated, xQc let loose on his opponent and the connection. “Congrats man. Dude, I genuinely hope that you spend your entire life getting good at this piece of s**t f**king game, and you go to your local tournament, and you win enough to buy a f**king router, you broke a** p**sy,” he exclaimed. 

xQc then turned his attention onto Smash itself. “I f**king hate this game, it’s so trash – holy s**t. Oh my God, get a router man. I can’t dude, this s**t is f**king trash! Get me out of here dude.”

The streaming star eventually closed the game off, opting to play a few different games before bringing his stream to an end for the day. 

While some fans might hope he goes back to Smash in the future, at least for a game or two, xQc might not be willing to – especially if he comes up against opponents with terrible connections.
