Well, here’s an ambitious crossover (they seem to be all the rage these days). In honor of Nickelodeon’s annual meeting Super Smash Bros. Ultimate tournament, SpongeBob SquarePants storyboard artist Kurt Snyder created a poster for this year’s internal studio event featuring famous Nickelodeon characters disguising themselves as Smash fighters.

2019 will be the fourth Smash tournament to be hosted at Nickelodeon Animation and Snyder decided to mix the studio’s famous faces with Nintendo’s roster to produce the poster below which he tweeted:

Snyder was aided in this task by his SpongeBob SquarePants storyboard colleague Tim Prendergast, and as you can see, many of the characters take on the roles of Nintendo’s top brawlers. Personal highlights include Rugrats’ Tommy as Ness, Michelangelo driving a twisting clown car, and an evil little Ren as Mewtwo in the lower left, but it’s all pretty special. Here’s the entire uncropped poster:
