The Piranha Plant has officially arrived in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate and the fan-fare was immediate. The community definitely became infinitely more lively when yesterday's patch went live but there's one aspect to do with this fighter's inclusion that people can't get enough of and that has to do with our beloved Kirby.

Kirby swallows his opponets in to take on their skills, becoming a hybrid blend of the two fighters. When he took on the Piranha Plant in combat and absorbed the toothy foe into himself, the result was way cuter than we expected. Just look at his face in the bottom right panel! That's the face of adorable regret.

But wait, it gets even better:

The Reddit boards were also alight with Piranha x Kirby love, and to be fair -- so are we now that we've seen it in action. Kirby, despite his cutesy appearance, is definitely a force to be reckoned with but with a face that means we don't mind saying "hi" to death.

As far as what else the latest update included with v2.0.0:

  • Offline
    • You can now play Spirit Board with up to four players.
