Many of you reading are now familiar with the “Smashified” series, which takes our favorite video game characters and shows us how they’d look if they were a part of Super Smash Bros. Fans of the series, and of course fans of Smash, have been clamoring for King K. Rool to appear as a playable character, and Smashified has made that dream (almost) come true.

This piece was not made by the series’ creator, Artsy Omni, but rather Smashified‘s first additional artist, Chris Szczesiul. And if fans’ dreams come true, it’s just a taste of what we’ll see if King K. Rool joins the battle as a DLC fighter.

Check out the video above for the “making of,” or head over this way if you’d like to see the timelapse painting without commentary.

If you like the Smashified series, you can subscribe to Artsy Omni to keep up with it, or follow Smashified on Twitter to keep up with its progress and share your voice for which character should be Smashified next.

Our Verdict


Colin McIsaac
I first played Donkey Kong Country before even turning three years old, and have since grown into an avid gamer and passionate Nintendo fan. I started working at Zelda Informer in August 2012, and helped found Gamnesia, which launched on February 1, 2013. Outside of the journalism game, I'm an invested musician who loves arranging music from video games and other media. If you care to follow my endeavors, you can check out my channel here: I was rummaging through some things a while back and found my first grade report card. My teacher said, "Oddly enough, Colin doesn't like to write unless it's about computers or computer-type games. In his journal he likes to write about what level he is on in 'Mario Land,' but he doesn't often write about much else." I was pretty amused, given where I am today. Also I have a dog, and he's a pretty cool guy. I don't care for elephants much. I suppose they're okay. You've read plenty now; carry on.
