With the release of Super Smash Bros. 4 coming closer, it’s no surprise to see fan works of the series popping up. Recently, Filipe Costa, a YouTube animator, created a beautiful reimagining of what a battle with Master Hand would look like in Link’s perspective.

Master Hand is seen as the main antagonist of the Smash Bros. series. The frustration and excitement experienced while trying to evade Master Hand’s brutal attacks is maximized when seen in first-person, as well as the scale of how small Link is compared to his enemy. The Final Destination stage that Master Hand is known to reside in is recreated to look just as stunning as before. Be sure to watch through to the end for a twist.

Filepe Costa is a very experienced animator, and has previously made a similar video based on Ocarina of Time. If you like what you see, take a look at his other first-person animations too. The video’s music was arranged by Julian Alvarez Chaia, and the child 3D model seen at the end was created by Firat Can Kiral.

    The face at 1:38 frightened me.

      It looks like an unfinished character model for the first toy story movie.

    Not really a twist because that’s how the original game did end, but the animation was very well executed and I definitely enjoyed it.

    Well that was pretty cool, shame there isn’t anything like that in any actual Smash Bros. Game.

    I always Master Hand was Miyamoto, Sakurai, or one of the other developers hands, though.
