Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Adds Shaggy Thanks to New Mod

Originally appearing in the long-running Scooby-Doo series, the character of Shaggy Rogers has recently gained notoriety for his standing as an inexplicable internet meme. Several campaigns have attempted to get the cracky-voiced slacker into popular games, with Mortal Kombat 11 being the most notable example. However, it now appears Shaggy has been entered into Super Smash Bros. Ultimate thanks to a spiffy new character mod.

Arriving via modder DemonSlayerX8, Shaggy is being added to Nintendo’s crossover title as a fully-playable conversion of series mainstay Captain Falcon. As such, the Shagster emulates all the fighting style of the F-Zero protagonist, including his legendary Falcon Punch maneuver. Though it isn’t a seamless mod (no exclamations of “Zoinks” to be heard), the effort made by Demonslayerx8 is nonetheless impressive, with Shaggy’s model and animations looking pretty spot-on in action. Check out the gameplay below.

Those looking to check out this particular Shaggy mod won’t have long to wait, as Demonslayerx8 plans to publicly release the character next month on June 7th. The release includes the original green-shirt getup as well as a bevy of alternative costumes, providing a solid color lineup for anyone brave enough to initiate a battle with multiple Shaggys at once.

As it stands, Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is only the latest to unofficially introduce Shaggy, with creative players placing him in the midst of several other notable titles. The Resident Evil 2 remake has felt the Shagster’s presence in addition to Red Dead Redemption 2, which showed off a much more realistic version of the Mystery Inc. member.
