Smash Bros Players Found A Way To Break Mewtwo

Smash Bros. Players Found A Way To Break Mewtwo

The most menacing Pokémon of all can become quite game-breaking in the hands of savvy Smash Bros. players.

Following the early release of Mewtwo for Club Nintendo members, Smash Bros. players have found a curious bug that can transform Mewtwo into a god.

While Mewtwo does not have custom moves, players figured out that if you import a Mii onto your system, view them in the character select screen, back out, select Mewtwo, and choose "random," Mewtwo will inherit the special moves of whatever Mii you viewed last. Unfortunately this inheritance isn't perfect, and Mewtwo glitches the hell out. The result is a Mewtwo that can become invincible, invisible, or just plain unpredictable.

Mankalor shows the many hijinks that can occur when you use a custom-moves Mewtwo in Smash Bros. in this video:

While the glitch can result in hilarity...

If that last GIF seems absurd, that's because it is. This glitched Mewtwo has its attack hitbox span the ENTIRE STAGE. So it can hit enemies no matter where they are, all at once. Bananas. The drawback is that its hitbox also spans the entire stage -- so anyone can easily hit Mewtwo, too.

People who are using these exploits say they can't be used online, but even so: wow! Hopefully this gets fixed when Mewtwo gets a wide-release.

    Yeah, they can't be used online, it only works in single player modes where customs are available to be used. Still, it can make that "Beat Classic on 9.0 without losing a stock" challenge pretty trivial if you haven't beaten it already.

    This is rather old too, the glitch was discovered within a day or two of Mewtwo being released.
