YouTubers Recreate (Almost) All of Smash Ultimate’s Victory Poses
Okay, I'm definitely going to break my neck trying to pull these off.
There’s no greater sense of pride than watching your Super Smash Bros. Ultimate character hit their victory pose. Like watching your child hit a home run at their first T-Ball game, watching your character stand victorious amongst the losing characters is a beautiful, beautiful feeling. Of course, seeing all of the other fighters forced to stand by and clap only makes the experience sweeter.
These fleeting, beautiful moments of glory were confined to Smash until now. YouTube channel SMG4 recently uploaded a video in which a group of people recreates pretty much every character from Super Smash Bros. Ultimate‘s victory pose. Only excluding King Dedede and Richter, the video offers a wide variety of acrobatics, swordplay, and flips that would impress even the most agile Smash fans. The group effortlessly and hilariously nails even the game’s most challenging poses. Seriously, there’s something both satisfying and awe-inspiring about seeing folks authentically recreate Diddy Kong and Greninja’s technically demanding poses.
This isn’t the first time the Smash Bros. franchise has courted some authentic (or, rather, hilariously inauthentic) YouTube recreations. Personal favorites include the Smash staple “Super Smash Bros. Wii U: All Taunt Animations reenacted by my Dad,” as well as “My Dad Guesses the Names of Smash Bros Characters.” Come to think of it, a lot of the best Smash videos are dad-centric.
