As if the inclusion of Minecraft Steve in Super Smash Bros Ultimate couldn't get any weirder, new footage shows that his victory pose is... unintentionally suggestive.
The block-building mascot was added to the popular fighting game as part of the second DLC fighting pass earlier today, and is a suitably strange addition to the roster. Steve's moveset feels perfectly in line with the mining and crafting elements of Minecraft while also feeling right at home in the increasingly eclectic mix of Smash Bros characters.
The fact Minecraft Steve both exists and works in a game like Super Smash Bros Ultimate is a real achievement. Everyone involved should be proud of themselves. Everyone except the person responsible for making him look like he's holding his penis whenever he wins a game. You know who you are, and I'm certain you know what you did.
Shout out to Nintendeal on Twitter for stumbling across this find. I also booted up the game and played through a round to verify that this filth is indeed legit, once again putting my journalism degree to its best use.

It's worth noting that Minecraft Steve has a few different victory animations, so you're not always guaranteed to get the meaty piece. As you can see from the video below, our hero can celebrate by building a house, or emerging from the exploded corpse of a Creeper. It's only in the final victory that he munches on a steak before bringing it down to groin level in a suggestive pose. Again, whoever animated this must have known what they were doing.
Minecraft Steve is the second character of the second DLC Fighter Pass. Min Min, from Nintendo fighting game Arms was added as the first fighter of the DLC pack a few months back. The two join the likes of Banjo and Kazooie, Joker from Persona 5, and Hero from the Dragon Quest series, who were all added as part of the first Fighter Pass.
I've checked, by the way, and not a single one of the original DLC fighters holds anything remotely resembling a penis. Lockdown has changed Sakurai.
