Starman Jr. is simultaneously a digital artist as well as a huge fan of the EarthBound series. We're comfortable using the adjective "huge" because of the immense amount of work he spent designing the visuals for what EB's Porky Minch might look like if he were introduced as a DLC character in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.

EarthBound protagonist, Ness, has been in the Super Smash Bros. series since day one back on the Nintendo 64, and saw IP pal Lucas join him in Brawl. Porky, an antagonistic character in the series, has only popped up as a boss in Brawl's Subspace Emissary mode.

Starman Jr. has illustrated not only what Porky might look like in basic design, but also the details of the character's movements, attacks, specials, entrance sequence, stage, musical themes and Final Smash.

The talented artist goes above and beyond to share multiple images for most all of these categories, and then also includes the specific references from either EarthBound or Mother3 that inspired each design.

Within a day of posting to Twitter, Jr.'s drawings have garnered over six thousand favorites and over two and a half thousand retweets. While Porky hasn't been amidst the top of many general Ultimate DLC wishlists we've seen, we can almost see him joining based on how much work has already been done here.

We've rounded up the images and included them in the gallery here for you to check out for yourself. You can view the originals in ridiculously high resolution right here.
