The creative folks over at GB Posters Blog have created a lovely infographic giving us a glimpse at the Super Smash Bros franchise through the years. The infographic shows how various Nintendo and third-party characters have evolved through the years.
i want chubby pikachu back ;_;
Uhh, why use Toon Link there?
I know he is “Link”
But a better fit would be Link from Twilight Princess don’t you think?
Woah, calm down there, Dr. Seuss…
The guy who made this was just lazy. Too lazy to use old sprites for those other Nintendo stars or didn’t know they existed before smash.
Yeah, I also notice how unclean it is, the cropping on some of these is just plain bad, look at the original pac-man.
They just didnt give a damn lol
This is so inaccurate, that shulk sprite is fanmade for fuck’s sake. There’s no logic in this at all.
Same with the Link that’s for the wii u….. Yeah it’s posed as the amiibo and picture but that’s still fan made..
And the DK 3D render from DK Country being placed near the end of the line. The facepalm was hard in that one.
This is pretty inaccurate, it has a lot of mistakes. Just to name a few:
They used an image of young Link from OoT3D instead of the N65 original version, then an image of Link from Spirit Tracks and then an unofficial image of Link from Skyward Sword possing like the official image of Link from SSBWiiU.
An unofficial pixeled image of Shulk (I don’t know where it came from)
An image of Sheik from OoT3D instead of using one from previous Smash Bros games.
An image of Pit from Kid Icarus Uprising (2011) and then one from Pit from Super Smash Bros Brawl (2008).
Anyways, it’s not a good infographic at all.
The N65 is my favourite Video Game Console of all time…XD
Yeah because of that one bit. It made it better than the ultra 64
Seriously, whoever made this didn’t do their research…
I could make a better one than this in 5 minutes
Make one then. Actions speak louder than words dog.
Do you guys seriously have to complain Over something as trivial as this? It’s just a cool little poster made by a bunch of fans lol
I like quality stuff, I think it’s not hard to improve this poster, it’s just that.
People love to bitch over everything, including me :p
You rebel scum…
It sucks man, thats all.
This is really awful….. Fan made sprites, Kirby’s final evolution is his Brawl form where everyone else is Smash 4, and why is Zero-Suit Samus considered the final version of samus? They are completely different characters. This is such shit lol can’t believe you reported on this
I have a theory, maybe the guy reported this in order to get more attention to his shitty work! Yep thats right the guy who reported this probably made the whole infographic! Just a theory, could be truth too!
not showing any metroid prime stuff ok then -_-
Infographic my ass. there’s nothing accurrate in it. Shulk sprite but no Little Mac sprite??
If it is through the years, where’s Pichu? Mewtwo? or Snake?
bad bad bad.
It will never not bother me when people compare sprites and official art instead of either all official art, or sprites and in-game-models.
yaaaay. got my ssb4 wii u copy 1 day early (europe) sucks that i can’t play online untill the update tho but still.. ^^ sheik was easy to control! my first time playing smash game sadly (probably because it was so popular that i never saw a copy in the stores when i was younger)
Bitch and whine, that’s the only thing people here seem to be capable of
They could at least make it neat and use the modern Smash pictures for everyone.
Haphazard mix of artwork and renders, what the hell? Amateurish. Even a DeviantArter would turn their nose up at this one.
Yoshi’s infographic is wrong…
So many inaccuracies…..plus they didnt even include all of the characters? (Wheres Roy? Pichu? MewTwo? Ness? Lucas??)
If you’re going to take the time to make something like this, at least put in some effort. I mean, come on!
Forget them… Where’s ganondorf?
Majors mask direct in December 15
Nintendo direct in december
So they had sonic from a canceled game, a sonic from a pretty obscure sonic collection, and one from a terrible wii game. I hate to be that guy, but why isn’t the adventure games art work or even ingame models not on it? Seriously, its some of sonic’s most popular games. (Also agree with everyone, why is there a shulk sprite?)
the original donkeykong is kranky kong right?
Only according to Rare. Nintendo doesn’t like continuity.
This is actually really poorly made xD
Yep, this “Infographic” is pretty bad. I also don’t know why it’s called “SSB through the years”, shouldn’t it use only characters that showed up in all the smash titles and compare their models, then? Comparing them with artwork is very non sense.
Someone should just stick an “At Least You Tried” sticker on that.
Olimar from brawl is after Olimar from ssb4
The fact that he referenced that Sonic R trash made me die inside a little. Terrible concept, shoddy graphics by Sega Saturn standards, annoying music, and poor track design in one huge shitpile.
If anything, the other Sonic racers (even the damn Sonic Drift games) were WAAAAY more enjoyable that the game that spawned the ever annoying Tails Doll meme.

I don’t get the parameters of this thing, it is mixing models from all versions of Super Smash Bros. with models of other games, with fanmade sprites, with old sprites, what is the metric? What are we supposed to see here?
This is the worst infographic I have ever seen. Lots of errors
yea so many inconsistencies !
Great idea, nice layout, poor execution.
Is is true that there’s a Nintendo direct of Majora’s Mask in december?
