Super Smash Bros. Ultimate's Stage Editor feature is a blessing and a curse. On one hand, it can bring about some truly amazing creations from dedicated fans. On the other hand... designs on the internet can get pretty bleak very quickly.

With new content being uploaded to Smash Bros. Ultimate's shared content section every day, we thought it would be fun to look through the creations for the best and worst fan-made stages from over the past week or so. This installment features both wacky and spectacular battlefields, so let's jump right into it.

Today's batch of interesting stages are mainly pulled from those uploaded yesterday. We did include some from earlier in the week and a couple from late last month that popped up in the "popular" feed because they were just too good.

Let's begin with a stage from Smash Ultimate user Dpaje that most people might put in the "worst" category, but that I find truly awesome. This player created a backdrop called "You will die!" that prominently features the very strange Ganon from Link: The Faces of Evil and Zelda: The Wand of Gamelon on the Philips CD-i.

The recreation looks great, though I certainly can't say the same for those CD-i Zelda games. You can check out the animations that inspired this Ganon stage here.

Additionally, another creative user named Hyruleboi put out a plea to Smash Bros. series creator Masahiro Sakurai. That plea, of course, was to add Dragon Ball Z's Goku to Smash Ultimate, and the created stage name and design itself are indicators of that.

Bringing some other fighting games into the mix, user Gsuz put together an interpretation of the Mortal Kombat "Pit" stage complete with bloody spikes at the bottom. The large moon in the background is a nice touch too.

There are several other great ones here, including the stage that features a Nintendo Switch with a Castlevania game being played on it — likely in celebration of the Castlevania Anniversary Collection coming to the Switch tomorrow — and many more.

We have included a screenshot of each stage alongside a screenshot of the stage's information so you can look them up and try them for yourself.
