We've seen plenty of fan-made takes on the Super Smash Bros. Ultimate roster over the past couple of years - like the time someone decided to transform John Cena into Captain Falcon, or when the art director of God of War created an incredible collection of 'realistic' Smash fighter designs - and this time, we've stumbled across a lovely franchise mash-up project.
Artist and Twitter user @lubellide00 has been hard at work reimagining the entire Smash Ultimate roster as characters from the indie hit, Hollow Knight. Mario, Link and friends have been completely transformed, with each fighter now sporting a fitting bug-like appearance.
The designs are all pretty fantastic in their own right, but recreating Ultimate's key art and that iconic mural was a particularly nice touch.
Here's a closer look at the designs. They really do look like they've walked right out of Hallownest and onto our screens.
If you're liking what you see, you might want to give @lubellide00 a follow. Each of the fighters set to be revealed as part of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate's second Fighters Pass are going to be treated to their very own post, just like this Min Min design below.
Amazing work, huh? Now, excuse us while we daydream about The Knight being revealed as the next DLC character...
Pac-Man will forever haunt me.
Making Yoshi that big quick travel bug was an excellent shout! They all look fantastic
@AlexOlney Pac-Man is pretty cute!
@AlexOlney Just take a few pills to calm yourself down and to chase away the ghosts that haunt you!
This Shawly took OP a long time to create
The crossover I never knew I needed until now...
Two of my most played games on switch. This is amazing and indeed of the high quality these two franchises deserve.
This looks awesome!
Just what Smash needs: another sword user. Sigh...
Hollow Knight would actually be amazing in Smash. Magic blasts, shadow dash, winged double jump - it’s all there. And Kirby looks fantastic as a Hollow Knight bug!
Hollow Knight is not that bright and colorful but Bug Fables is. Looks more like that to me.
Getting The Knight in Smash Bros would make me so incredibly happy. Probably the only DLC character I would actually buy.
These are very nicely done, a lot of thought into what actually makes the character as well as their visuals here. Top work!
How do people even come up with these? Gah so good. Especially love Jigglypuff and Bayonetta
I never want to see that Squirtle ever again.
Aside from that, I think the reinterpretations of the characters are largely really nice! I haven't played Hollow Knight (yet - but I've heard a ton of great stuff about it) but it's good to see it has such a passionate fanbase.
A new Fire Emblem character really bugged this guy, I feel for him.
I love it! Crazy stuff!
The Game & Watch one!
Hollow Night is such a great game!
I bought Hallow knight a few months ago, and just couldn’t get into it, mainly because I had so many other games to play. I love how it looks so, I might try it again soon.
Very impressive! These designs look very professional. He must be a huge fan:0
That really does look like it came from the actual HK team.
I never could get myself into HK for some reason. I tried, but never really had fun with it.
Recently I've been playing Ori and realized Hollow Knight feels more or less like "budget Ori".....
This is really cool. My son loves Hollow Knight and Smash, so this should be a great treat to show him.
Give this guy a job, if he isn't already a successful concept artist.
I love this more than I ever thought possible.
Everything was brilliant! Each one got a lot of love, except Sonic who is just the Traitor Lord.
Some of these were probably difficult to make
And cloud is just what I expected
Despite not playing nearly enough Hollow Knight as I want to, I love the artstyle. And this only reinforces that fact.
I went looking for Bayonetta first, as I recall her design being inspired by a spider, and her having butterfly wings. Couldn't have done it better myself.
That's pretty cool.
