Fan recreates the Super Smash Bros. Ultimate box art but all characters are Kirby with copied abilities from the roster

Everyone Is... Kirby?

Before Masahiro Sakurai was the director of the Super Smash Bros. series, he created Kirby. I personally think it's fair to say that Kirby has earned his right to participate in every entry of the Super Smash Bros. franchise as he has become quite the gaming icon, regardless of who his creator is.

Samure is very likely a fan of Sakurai's work as they have taken it upon themselves to recreate the box art for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. What's interesting is that every fighter has been replaced by Kirby with various copy hats.

Of course, do keep in mind that this isn't a one-to-one recreation as some of the depicted fighters are different than those on the box art. Still, it's recognizable as there is a Kirby with the Mario hat and a Kirby with the Link hat located front and center.

Other challengers that have been copied in the recreation include Donkey Kong, Peach, a single Ice Climber, Captain Falcon, Ness, Pit, Pac-Man, Inkling, Villager, Squirtle, Ivysaur, Charizard, Cloud, Samus, Ike, Mega Man, and eight others.

It might seem a bit odd to see Link Kirby wearing the green hat when Breath of the Wild Link's default appearance (and the one that appears on the game's box art) doesn't wear one. Despite Kirby's appearance, this is consistent with what Kirby looks like when he copies Link during gameplay.
