A double KO with Sora during Stamina mode is made hilarious with Kingdom Hearts' slow motion in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

The inclusion of Sora in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate brings with him a unique Easter egg from the Kingdom Hearts series. You kind of have to go out of your way to experience seeing and hearing this Easter egg since it can only happen during Stamina mode.

Whenever Sora lands the finishing blow during Stamina mode, the fade to white effect from the Kingdom Hearts series will happen in slow motion. It's just like whenever a boss is defeated in the Kingdom Hearts series.

For this to happen, Sora has to be the one landing the last hit, and that hit has to deplete what remains of the opponent's stamina. If Sora simply knocks the opponent into the blast zone, then the slow motion finish won't trigger.

What happens if a double KO occurs between two Sora players? This was a question that was answered in a video uploaded by PKBeats some time ago, but I decided to recreate the scenario for fun.

While both players will be reeling pain from being defeated, the Kingdom Hearts slowdown animation will still happen. It's actually a little jarring to see both characters tumbling over at the same time, and in slow motion.

Following this, a Sudden Death round will need to be played out to determine the overall winner. Check it all out in the clip below:
