Dec. 15 will mark the final Super Smash Bros. Nintendo Direct. It will most certainly mean a new character will be announced, along with some minor tweaks and feature updates before Nintendo officially moves away from the game.

Cue the fake leaks and doctored screenshots all touting some sort of leak. This includes a convincing video trying to dupe fans into believing the final character will be Ravio, from The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds.

But most online lack the talent to pull off such a convincing leak. They’ve resorted to bad jokes and digital alterations.

There’s a reason people are throwing around absurd character predictions for Smash. Nintendo actually polled fans earlier this year asking which characters they would like to see. Suggestions were not limited to Nintendo properties.

Considering Cloud from Final Fantasy VII was recently confirmed for Smash, anything is possible. Even Hank Hill.
