This could be the lamest display of Steve's gameplay in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate and I think it's hysterical to watch

It's either hilarious or painful depending on your view

When Steve from Minecraft was first shown off for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, there were concerns from the Smash community about some of the tools that he had access to. In theory, Steve could win a match by simply laming out opponents until a time over occurred. Luckily though, Steve was designed with some rather glaring faults that generally prevents this from happening too often.

However, if Steve manages to get a significant lead over the other player, then they could be forced into an obnoxious game of tag. Uhhncertain recently posted a hilarious (or painful) clip that had a Byleth user locked in a pretty unfavorable position.

From what we can tell from the clip, this match took place towards the end of a crew battle. Each crew has a set number of stocks that have been divided up by their players. When a player loses all three of their stocks, the opponent's remaining stock count is carried over into the next match.

At the start of the match, "Paragoons" had only one stock remaining while "Catholic Squeakers" had six stock remaining. This essentially meant that the Byleth player in the clip only had one stock left while the Steve user started with three stock.

Instead of finishing the opponent off quickly, it appears that Uhhsembly, the Steve user in the clip, decided to play with their food. For seven agonizing minutes, Steve ran from Byleth and aimed to run the timer out.

Throughout the entire match, Byleth was able to take out two of Steve's stocks. Luckily, it appears that this won't be a typical scene in a traditional match as it was only possible thanks to the initial lead by the Catholic Squeakers.

Hilariously, the Byleth player could've chosen to end it quickly by self-destructing, but they instead chose to fight against this. Had they stolen that last stock, their damage would've been reset for the last match of the crew battle.

Be advised that there is a brief moment of NSFW language in the clip below:
