‘Super Smash Bros 4’ Characters: This mod lets you fight like Kermit the Frog

It’s not often the phrases Super Smash Bros. 4 and “Kermit the Frog” are uttered in the same breath, yet here we are. Everyone’s favorite green muppet has finally arrived in the Nintendo fighting game! Well, sort of.

You can fight as Kermit the Frog in Super Smash Bros. 4, but it will take a bit of modding.

Super Smash Bros. 4 characters: Wreck your enemies as Kermit the Frog

Skins for Smash Bros 4. characters on the Wii U come via the help of GameBanana’s users. The mod community has already produced some awesome alternates for Smash characters like Cloud, Roy and Mr. Game and Watch. They’ve even given Villager some new, NSFW hobbies.

For the Muppet concerned, however, Kermit the Frog comes to the game as a skin of Street Fighter’s Ryu. Here’s what it looks like.

This comes not too long after Kermit showed us his fighting chops over in Dragon Ball Z Xenoverse 2 via a mod as well. Why am I not surprised?

The latest game in the Smash Bros. series saw the most non-Nintendo characters come to the game. Additions like Mega Man, Ryu, Pac-Man, Bayonetta and Sonic show that Smash Bros. isn’t just for Nintendo mascots anymore.

But the thematic trend dictates that roster additions to Smash Bros. be video game characters and not just popular figures from just any series. It’s why we haven’t seen Goku added to Smash Bros (not officially). That’s really the only excuse — though if you’re reading this Nintendo, it’s not too late! Xenoverse is technically a video game and it’s even coming to the Nintendo Switch.

It’s tough to say whether the popular Muppet character will actually rear his froggy head in a Smash Bros. game. But who knows what Nintendo has planned for Smash on Switch?
