With Super Smash Bros. for Wii U being out in North America for a number of days already, it's inevitable that fans will encounter their own unique experiences with the game and its accompaniments. For example, one lucky fan managed to grab hold of a factory-error amiibo, with Samus Aran having two arm canons instead of her usual single blaster.
However a rather unlucky fan, T-Man, has supposedly picked up a faulty copy of SSBU, and has posted images of his game containing glitched character models on Nintendo's social network, Miiverse. The video below shows this strange error, with characters having protruding limbs, warped faces, and looking disturbingly malnourished. The only good news about this is that so far this glitch has only affected T-Man, suggested by the comments on his Miiverse posts. Of course, this could be a hoax, much like GameStop's publicity stunt.
In contrast to this accidental bespoke copy of SSBU, fans have taken it upon themselves to give some existing amiibo figurines a sweet makeover. The efforts from chibisilverwings include modifying Link to Shadow Link and Water Link (complete with Iron Boots and Mirror Shield), as well as making Villager look like a complete and utter psychopath. Below that we have a Light Suit Samus from Project Upgrade.
What do you think of these rare Super Smash Bros. alterations? Have you had any unique encounters? Would you repaint your amiibo, and if so, which character would you modify?

There's just no way ONLY ONE SINGLE COPY has that glitch.
And regarding the customizations, I think they're ace but I'm not talented/brave enough to try.
From the Kotaku article:
That worries me incase there's bad glitches in the coding that you'll never notice.
i want that villager....
"Villager look like a complete and utter psychopath"
He always looked that way to me.
I don't think this is too unlikely as my copy of SSB 3DS had this problem where it is unable to play Classic Mode (and the system then proceeds to restart). I've sent the game to Customer Service in Nintendo about 6 weeks ago, and first they had no idea what happened, then they lost the game, and now a replacement is supposed to come soon (which they said like 3 weeks ago). My copy of SSB U better be problem free considering the utter torture I've had to deal with with the 3DS version.
That's a messed up copy! other than that I WANT THAT VILLAGER!
I want that messed up copy! Too bad you can't tilt disks...
@FernandoMachado Maybe the game data was poorly coded onto that disc. Disc are mass produced, so an error can happen. My MK8 disc has bumpy edges while my other Wii U discs have smooth edges.
That Dedede looks hilarious.
Lol King Dedede and his eyes xD
I don't know what's more terrifying... Villager with a bloody axe or that deformed King Dedede.
@NintyMan Agreed. I just want an amiibo of Pink Captain Falcon.
Lets be honest, we all want Murica Mario
Okay, I looked at more of those glitched SSB4 pics...
Yeah, I need that copy.
I wanna have Zero Suit Samus, Zero mission/ fusion ending version
I'd love to have the female villager if I were to modify an amiibo.
@mystman12 Those glitched videos and pics remind me of Vinesauce videos
I love how that Villager gives you the side-eye. IT KNOWS YOU'RE THERE!
That water Link with mirror shield is the business.
@rjejr i know right?
I would love seeing official amiibo alts, especially that villager one
But if the glitches are true, then he could be getting some serious cash in the future! :0
@Grumblevolcano Yeah, I love glitches and ROM corruptions and stuff! (In fact, I have a video of DKC3 ROM Corruptions on YouTube) I can't say the same for Vinesauce though since their videos are usually really dirty... But yeah, I love me some glitches!
THERE IS NO PLANK!...
I feel conflicted about the game glitch video. If I was younger or had my guard down, it'd probably scar me for a good, long while... But watching it in motion just had me ROLLIN'!!
And I actually hope "Alt amiibos" aren't officially gonna be a thing, because I just KNOW I'm gonna want those too. But I do like the idea of customizing your own. I'm actually tempted to make the Gold/Silver trainer cap for my Pikachu now.
Lol at the bloody villager!
Dat Samus. DROOL
@Chubblings that sounds like a real ordeal man! I really hope they get you sorted out. I dont play smash but if I got messed about like that with mk8 I'd be pissed!! Good luck
Thanks, I guess I was just unlucky, but hey, I was holding out for the superior Wii U version anyway (got it preordered for Friday)
Man, that glitched copy is weird. Looks like that copy of the game wasn't burned to disc properly. I remember somebody who had a copy of Pokemon X/Y that had weird graphical glitches, wonder if I could find that again.
FYI, that video of the game, it is not really a glitch, it is a defective copy of the game. Apparently all his games are like that so it really isn't a glitch.
Don't know If I'd paint my amiibo, but I certainly would LOVE to find a factory error!
The only version of Smash Bros. to let you play as Saper Mayro, Sanic, Gooby & Dolan (Dack Hant), Seamus, and Lonk from Pennsylvania.
I'd edit a sonic amiibo to have the Beat costume from Project M.
Can you play as Weege on this version? and King Harnikian?
You know what? It looks like this copy was made by Ubisoft. That explains why Yoshi and Dedede look so much like Rayman
@ikki5 You mean not just his Smash copy?
Those custom amiibos look great, maybe we'll see a market of those in the future. I'd certainly buy all of Samus variations
Augh... that video is creepy... also, is it me, or is the stage too small and/or the knockout effect too big?
I'm thinking it might be the Wii U console itself and that the laser isn't reading the disc right.
Time to keep my eye on ETSY! I'm sure some amazing artists are already doing this and selling them.
@rjejr Its always the quiet ones
I'd LOVE to have that shadow Link
@VolcanoFlamesNL he is playing in Special Smash and changed the character's size to make the characters larger so the flawed models are easier to see.
Metal Mario amiibo!
Love these amiibo mods i might attempt to try to make a dark link myself one day if I am feeling brave lol
That deformed Yoshi…
Shiny Greninja Amiibo would be cool...
I actually was going to make my samus a Light Suit one!
Love the light suit Samus, Awesome..
Light Suit Samus is so sexy. I might just get my own Samus amiibo and do that same paint job.
I. WANT. THAT. GOGGLE. PIKACHU!
Also, that villager is genuinely awesome. I could never paint my amiibo though, I already feel bad that I took mine out of the cases so I could use them. I'm actually considering purchasing doubles just for display. (plus ten years from now these will be sought after I imagine.)
I wish I had the confidence (and artistic talent) to mod my Amiibo, I'd make my Link into the Fierce Deity costume he's saved as!
I am loving the looks of those modmiibos (hoping that term will kick off). I would love to have my Pikachu amiibo with goggles too since that's the in-game look I use.
Saw some of T-man miiverse post. The graphics looks flat (lol) but the freakiest one have to be between long legs Charizard and that demon Ness.
i want that samus...
Guys, you forgot to report about another graphics glitch someone had. Now THIS is nightmare fuel!
I had an idea for glow in the dark paint on my Samus Amiibo.Just the parts that are green since there's probably no such thing as blue glow in the dark paint for her Cannon.A metal Mario Amiibo would be cool to have aswell.
Lol: King Dedede looks absolutely better now! Of course this is fake!
As for the Amiibo paint-jobs: It looks nice, but its also abuse (Amiibo's are pretty expensive).
