Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Glitch Turns the Game into a Waluigi Hell-World

Waluigi Time ad infinitum.

What can you do if you're a Waluigi fan who's still broken up over Waluigi's absence in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate? One option is to get over it already, but if you're weak-willed and weak-souled, there's something else you can do.

Turns out there's a glitch in Smash Bros. Ultimate that makes it possible to summon infinite Waluigi Assist Trophies. If executed properly, they come pouring out, one after another, marching in an inexorable flow like Dumbo's Pink Elephants on Parade, except fifty times more terrifying. There. There's your "Waluigi in Smash" fix. Satisfied? No, I didn't think you'd be.

God's sake, just listen to that hellish cacophony. "WAAA-HAHAH NENENENENE WAAAA-HAHAHAHA NENENENENE!" If the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse ever do take their last ride, I expect the hoofbeats of their mounts won't sound very different.

The glitch, discovered and demonstrated by "Master0fHyrule," is surprisingly easy to execute for all the chaos it brings. Two Isabelles need to try to grab an assist trophy with their fishing rods at the same time. If done correctly, the world ends.

The endless Waluigi spawn isn't the only reason to execute this glitch, though it's obviously the best reason. Master0fHyrule cycles through several Assist Trophies affected by the trick. My favorite besides Waluigi is the Nintendog that takes on the appearance of a ten-headed Cerberus-poodle. I bet it was "fired" from its job defending the Gates of Hades because it tried to play fetch with every soul that passed through.
