Nintendo revealed plenty of things for fans to look forward to in September’s Nintendo Direct, but among the most exciting updates is the addition of a very cute (and deadly) skeleton to Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. Fans can barely contain their excitement, and they’re responding via memes.
Sans from Undertale—which made the jump to Nintendo Switch last year—will now be one of several outfits available for Mii Fighters to don in a lineup that includes Goemon from Mystical Ninja, Team Rocket, and Proto Man and Zero from Mega Man. Brief clips that follow show Sans in action as he uses his gunner to take down opponents around him.
Many fans watching the reveal unfold online couldn’t believe that Nintendo was actually bringing Sans to Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. They lost it.

Some of them were impressed by the amount of detail and care that went into designing his character for the game. For fans who’ve followed and played Undertale for years, it’s astounding for them to see how far Sans has come.
It's not just the fact Sans is in #SmashBros
It's the fact he LOOKS. SO. EFFING. AMAZING!!
The heart that went into this model is incredible, and it just makes me so happy. Toby Fox made a game in a basement with free software… and look where it is now. #NintendoDirect pic.twitter.com/FlGKTE1zOt
