Who needs a new Smash when you can just mod every character?
Super Smash Bros. Ultimate players highlights some of the best mods that have been made for the game since launch, including some incredible character skins, UI options, and gameplay reworks.
While Sakurai’s semi-retirement means we probably won’t be getting another entry in the Super Smash Bros. series for a while, that hasn’t stopped fans of the series from continuing to support the latest entry and keep it alive through mods . We’ve highlighted some great Smash Ultimate mods over the past few years, but a recent thread has revealed just how vibrant the modding community for the game is.
The thread highlighting some of the game’s best mods was started by ResetEra user “D.”, who wanted everyone to know that modded Smash Ultimate is “great and fans of the game should know about it”. The thread highlights various mods made by the community so far, ranging from ones that add Shrek to the game to others that let you choose what music you want for a scene.
Let’s start with character swaps, since the thread is absolutely full of them. Some of the highlights include a mod that changes Daisy to Bowsette by Dreamer13sq, one from Pik that replaces Dragon Quest’s Hero with Crono from Chrono Trigger (god, we wish this was real) by HeroTechne, and another from Pik that turns Young Link into Classic Link from the NES games.
That’s barely even scratching the surface of the number of character mods highlighted in the thread. No matter which character you’re starring in, be it Bowser or King K. Rool, there are tons of different mods out there to help spice up Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. Or you could just say heck and add Shrek to the game, complete with a donkey sword.
Moving away from character mods, the thread also highlights some interesting mods for changing UI and gameplay features. One of the mods mentioned is one from Progenitor7 that rearranges the character selection screen so that fighters are grouped by series, rather than the order in which they were added to the game.
Another featured mod is one from modder Dubb D that adds a bunch of new series icons to the game, replacing some of the more generic ones used in the game. If changing the UI isn’t your thing, this mod from deinonychus71 and soneek that lets you add the music you like to the game might be more speedy. Or you can just install this mod from Nohbdy that changes all of Link’s weapons to ones from Breath of the Wild.
Even with a massive thread highlighting some of the best mods made for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, there are a few notable ones that weren’t mentioned. Some of my favorites include the one that changes Sora’s Keyblade into a shotgun, this particularly cursed one that turns Kirby into an emoji, and a recent one that adds MrBeast to the game. God, the internet is special.
