Every time a new fighter is inducted into Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, they're added to the sprawling mural Nintendo's been cultivating since before the game's launch. There are over 70 characters in the piece, and more are on the way. It's starting to look like that famous group shot of the Overlook Hotel from the end of The Shining.
The Smash mural brings another famous piece of media to mind: the Where's Waldo? series of books that challenged you to find the bespectacled traveler in a crowd of people in objects. Where's Waldo? was all the rage in the '90s. The best part was taking out the books at the school library and discovering someone had circled Waldo's location on every page in permanent marker.
I was thinking of ol' Waldo today when I squinted at the Smash mural in search of its newcomer, Fire Emblem's Byleth. For the life of me, I couldn't find him—or his female counterpart. You'd think green hair would make a character stand out, but Smash Ultimate hosts robots, Pokemon, villains, and gods. Byleth may as well be one of those generic fish that fill the background in SpongeBob SquarePants.
You can see the whole mural for yourself on the official Smash Ultimate page. Rest assured Byleth is present. If you're having trouble finding him, Japan's official Twitter account singled him out. You'll find Byleth flanked by Princess Daisy and Ken. Solid Snake is squatting in front of him, displaying his sculpted Kojima-brand buttocks as confidently as ever.
With six more fighters on the way, this mural is fated to grow. It's a versatile form of entertainment, though! You can challenge your friends to find their favorite characters in the crowd, or you can succumb to the mural's promises of eternal fellowship. Surrender your soul and become one with Smash. Forever.
We have a guide for Byleth's moveset in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate already as well. Give it a look.
