'Final Sakurai' custom stage puts Masahiro Sakurai into Super Smash Bros. Ultimate in his iconic pose

The version 3.0 patch for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate added the Stage Builder mode. Compared to Brawl and Smash 4, SSBU's custom options for stage building allows for more creativity than ever before.

While some players use their powers of creativity to create NSFW content, others actually use this tool as an opportunity to show off what they can do. "Chad :D" took the time to create a stage that places the series director — Masahiro Sakurai — into the game itself.

Sakurai tends to be known for meme-worthy mannerisms. At the conclusion of the Super Smash Bros. 4 Direct held on April 8, 2014, Sakurai held his head between his two hands as his eyes were close before reminding the audience that he was the director of Super Smash Bros.

And it's this pose that Chad has chosen to illustrate Sakurai with his custom stage. Needless to say, the custom stage captures Sakurai's appearance and likeness perfectly.

The arms will move up and down in a set cycle. This is very similar to how Sakurai posed on that fateful day. Since Sakurai is in the background, it doesn't actually affect or hinder the fighters.

Outside of this, the stage essentially serves as an alternate Final Destination. Hence why it is aptly named "Final Sakurai."

If you are interested in downloading the stage for yourself, the ID is "1SWYMYDH."
