Avatar: The Last Airbender’s Iconic Intro, but Entirely in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate
Everything changed when the Fire Nation attacked...
This is what peak internet looks like. A Super Smash Bros. Ultimate YouTuber by the name of Smash Grade has re-created one of the most iconic anime intros of all time–Avatar: The Last Airbender.
You can find the video below. They’ve also gone and put the original Avatar intro in the top-left corner for reference. So you can see just how perfect this is.
You’ve got Ice Climbers as Katara and Sokka, and Aang as a Mii Fighter. My life is complete.
What’s impressive is just how accurate the video recreation is, considering that it was made only using the in-game camera and some light video editing. All of the martial arts moves are recreated seamlessly through characters like Ryu, Robin, and Bayonetta. What’s more is that the water, earth, fire, and air bending all looks realistic. Almost like Sakurai intended it.
“Oh my god, I can’t believe they’re adding Avatar to Smash. Thanks Sakurai,” user Trick_St3r said on Reddit. We can dream, can’t we.
“Aang blows over the competition,” Stupidsexysalamander said.
There’s a clear outpour of support for Smash Grade to continue making scenes from the show in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. There are requests for Secret Tunnel and The Giant Mushroom, among other iconic moments.
The video is currently sitting at just over 20,000 views on YouTube, but it has been Upvoted by 93% of the r/Smashbros community. It’s got over 34K Upvotes, while the video’s creator, Smash Grade, sits at 211 subscribers. Just saying.
If you’re into these Super Smash. Bros Ultimate recreations then you should also check out this fan-made recreation of a scene from Star Wars. It’s always awesome to see crossovers like these because they create a marriage between two fandoms. Recreating mediums in other mediums has always been a great way for fans to geek out and, in this case, to show off their creativity and ability to adapt elemental bending to a game about fighting Nintendo characters.
