Today, Masahiro Sakurai pulled back the curtain on the next DLC character for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, Min Min from ARMS. Overall, fans seem to be pretty happy with the pick, but many are starting to speculate about the future of the game's DLC. In the past, fans have petitioned for Doom Slayer (also referred to as "Doomguy") from the DOOM franchise, but those hopes have been renewed thanks to the presence of a new Mii Fighter skin that was also revealed today, based on Vault Boy from the Fallout franchise. That skin is the first representation that a Bethesda franchise has gotten in the Super Smash Bros. series, and fans can't help but wonder if it might foreshadow something bigger!

Some fans are convinced.
100% they added vault boy to hit at a deal with Bethesda studios meaning doom guy in smash that would be so awesome

It's definitely an interesting inclusion.
I think people underestimate just how huge Vault Boy is. Because (to my knowledge) this is Bethesda's first appearance in Smash EVER. My boy Doomguy might just have a shot

The character is an industry icon!
Welp bethesda got a spot in smash...
Does this mean we are getting closer to Doomguy becoming a playable Smash Character? pic.twitter.com/iSU74GNsx0

An Elder Scrolls rep is possible, too.
So there's a vault boy costume in smash now, which means Nintendo has been in contact with Bethesda
So one of these guys might make it into smash

Doom Slayer feels more likely than ever before.

To be fair, Smash already has plenty of violent characters!
So Vault Boy got announced as a Mii Outift... meaning Smash is open to Bethesda’s more violent games... please Mr. Sakurai give The Slayer a chance

There are five fighters yet to be revealed...
THIS MEANS SMASH X BETHESDA IS HAPPENING IM CALLING IT NOW DOOMGUY WILL BE IN THIS DLC PACK.

Of course, some think it might mean the opposite!
I'm just gonna say that Doom Slayer is out. Just seems like they'd show Vault Boy and Doom Slayer together. Showing him now? Yeah no Bethesda in Smash. Sorry bout that losers.
