Mobile ripoffs are absolutely nothing new, and nine times out of ten, they are beyond hilarious. Sometimes, they can be a little subtle in their mimicry, but this Super Smash Bros. Ultimate mobile ripoff is anything but subtle. Because of the outlandish lack of shame, this particular bootleg has gone viral. 

A lot of times, these mobile ripoffs target super high-traffic gaming IPs. We've seen it with Fortnite, we've seen it with Pokémon — we've even seen it with Among Us. Now, it's another Nintendo game that is getting its unneeded twin: Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. 

First spotted by Twitter user @HeyNiceJobStill, a small video was uploaded about the unlicensed ripoff from the Cayman Islands, as seen below:

According to the Twitter user, the latest mobile ripoff is called Super Fighter M - All-Star. The mobile game has all of the staple Nintendo characters, including Kirby, Sonic, Donkey Kong, Link, and more. Do you know who still didn't make the roster, though? Waluigi. Pour one out for his latest L. 

The knock off even has a few characters that don't quite fit, including fan-made tributes as seen with Evil Mario: 

The comments of the above thread are honestly gold with people sharing their favorite one-liners from the roster. Some of them get...well, they get a little weird, but are we really surprised? 

As spotted by GameRanta video was also uploaded about the game from YouTuber VideoGameDunkey (shout out to Dunk!): 

Since this is Nintendo we're talking about, a takedown notice should be arriving in 3, 2, ... Oh wait, it was already taken down on March 8 from the Google Play Store. Well. At least we'll have these videos to treasure always.
