Super Mario Maker 2 Direct

One of the highlights during the recent Super Mario Maker 2 Direct presentation was the confirmation of Undodog, a good boy who is one of the many helpful characters Mario will encounter in the brand new story mode.

If you're not familiar with Undodog (also known as Undo Dog), he first appeared in the 1992 Super Nintendo title, Mario Paint on the Super Nintendo. Since then, he's made cameo appearances in the WarioWare series and has also featured in Super Mario Maker on the Wii U and Super Mario Maker for Nintendo 3DS.

Since appearing in Super Mario Maker 2's 3D story world, the internet has once again gone wild for Undodog – with many Nintendo fans on social media creating artwork for the character and crying out for his inclusion as a DLC fighter in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. Some even want him to be featured in his own standalone game, while others have theories he might be the villain in Super Mario Maker's sequel.
