Who needs a new Smash when you can just modify every character?

Super Smash Bros. players Ultimate showcases the best mods that have been made to the game since launch, including amazing character skins, UI options, and gameplay reworks.

While Sakurai’s semi-retirement means we likely won’t get a new entry in the Super Smash Bros. series. for quite some time, that hasn’t stopped fans of the series from continuing to support the latest entry and keep it alive with mods. We’ve spotted some great Smash Ultimate mods over the past few years, but a recent thread revealed just how vibrant the modding community is for the game.

A thread highlighting some of the best mods in the game was started by ResetEra user “D.”, who wanted everyone to know that the Smash Ultimate mod is “great and fans of the game should know about it.” The thread outlines the various community-made mods so far, from those that add Shrek to the game to others that allow you to pick whatever music you want for the scene.


Let’s start with character swaps, because the plot is filled to the brim with them. Some of the highlights include a mod that turns Daisy into a Bowsette by Dreamer13sq, one from Pika that replaces Dragon Quest’s Hero Crono with Chrono Trigger (oh god wish it wasn’t real) by HeroTechne, and another from Pika, which turns Young Link into Classic Link from NES games.

This barely scratches the surface of the number of character mods that are highlighted in the thread. No matter what character you play, be it Bowser or King K. Rool, there are tons of different mods out there to help you improve Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. Or you can just say “hell” and add Shrek to the game along with the donkey sword.

Moving away from character mods, the thread also highlights some interesting modifications to the UI and gameplay features. One of the mods mentioned is one from Progenitor7 that rearranges the character select screen so that fighters are grouped by series instead of the order they were added to the game.

Another featured mod is the Dubb D modder, which adds some new series icons to the game that replace 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 allows you to add whatever music you like to your game can speed things up. Or you can just install this mod from Nohbda that changes all of Link’s weapons to some of Breath of the Wild.

Even with an extensive thread highlighting some of the best mods made for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, there are a few notable ones not mentioned. Some of my favorites are the one that turns Sora’s Keyblade into a shotgun, the particularly cursed one that turns Kirby into an emoji, and the last one that adds MrBeast to the game. God, the internet is special.
