Super Smash Bros. Ultimate's Stage Builder Was Briefly Home to Some Really Inappropriate Levels

This is why we can't have nice things.

As part of the newest Super Smash Bros. Ultimate 3.0 Update, Nintendo has once again added a Stage Builder option to the game so players can create their own custom levels. Unfortunately, this has already led some to abuse of the privilege.

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate's Stage Builder is similar to ones released in previous Super Smash Bros. games. Players can use a variety of different building materials to create different stages. Most of the custom created levels are either earnest creations, references to jokes and memes, or other harmless ideas. Some level creators, however, are creating more inappropriate levels and making them available online.

This being the internet, the phallus is a quick go-to for cheeky level creators who thought they could get a penis joke into Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. But there were also other levels that really crossed the line of good taste, including one moving level that simulated sexual intercourse, and another referencing the 9/11 terrorist attack (which we won't be linking here).

Nintendo has been on top of cleaning up the available Stage Builder levels and it's hard to find any inappropriate levels right now. But nothing gets past the internet, and it's easy to find images of some of the more inappropriate Nintendo Stage Builder levels online.

The Stage Builder in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate isn't Nintendo's first brush with online content creators given the tools to make a penis joke or two and upload it to a Nintendo game. Super Mario Maker also let players create levels and share them online, and players definitely took advantage of that freedom to create phallus-themed Mario levels.

We reached out to Nintendo of America to ask if there will be any more moderation tools coming to Super Smash Bros. Ultimate's Stage Builder, like a reporting system for players to flag inappropriate levels as they see them.

The latest Super Smash Bros. Ultimate 3.0 update also added Joker from Persona 5, its first character as part of the season pass. Check out our Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Joker guide for more info on the phantom thief who joined in on the Nintendo rumble.
