With Super Smash Bros. Ultimate throwing the door open to a number of popular third-party franchise characters, it wouldn’t be completely out of the question to see the ultra-popular Fortnite be represented in some way later down the line. For many, when you think of games like Fortnite, you think less about its in-game characters and more about the real-life people who have helped to make it the wild success that it is.
So, what are the chances that Ninja, the world’s most famous streamer best known for his Fortnite coverage, could end up in the game one day? It’s unlikely, sure – in fact, we’d happily bet our entire Smash amiibo collection on such a collaboration never happening – but one modder has taken the time to show us just what that particular mashup could look like.
Below, you’ll see Snake’s character model replaced with Ninja’s in-game Fortnite skin, with all of Snake’s movements and attacks still intact. His voice has been replaced with clips from Ninja’s streams, including a scream of ‘What am I doing?!’ for his Final Smash. As a word of warning, the clip features some mature language.
If you’d rather avoid such language, we’ve grabbed some screenshots for you, too.
What do you think? Could you see a Fortnite representative working in Smash? Can you imagine the absolute chaos such a reveal would cause among the more vocal members of the Nintendo community? Have your say below.

Democratic norms are being stress-tested all over the world, and the past few years have thrown up all kinds of questions we didn't know needed clarifying – how long is too long for a parliamentary prorogation?
