Controller modified for Pichu users that... tazes them whenever they use certain self-harming attacks in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

Become one with Pichu... by tazing yourself?

Pichu in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate has a unique mechanic that causes it to inflict damage upon itself whenever an electric attack is used. Despite also being the lightest character in the game, Pichu is actually fairly strong in SSBU's meta.

In case you ever wanted to become closer to the video game character, InsertControllerHere on Reddit has developed a controller that's specifically designed for playing Pichu. Whenever you input certain commands that damages Pichu, you'll be... electrocuted by a taser.

Pichu's attacks that cause self harm are forward tilt, forward smash, down smash, forward aerial, back aerial, down aerial, neutral special, side special, up special, down special, pummel, and forward throw.

Ironically, the list of attacks that don't electrocute Pichu is smaller than the attacks that do. It's safe to use jab, down tilt, up tilt, up smash, dash attack, neutral aerial, grab, down throw, up throw, and back throw.

Luckily though, this controller is designed to only taze when special moves are performed. Still, you'd essentially have to be some sort of masochist to want to use this controller mod. Funnily enough, InsertControllerHere has declared that he'll be uploading live footage of him playing online with this controller in the coming days.

As someone who generally doesn't like playing against Pichu, I think this should become the standard controller for Pichu users. Of course, I'm obviously joking. Or am I?
