Dubbing the mod “Hero of Hell,” Beyond Smash features various expressions, a very accurate sound of Pochita’s barking, a roaring chainsaw sound when used, and an interesting ability where the chainsaw chains whip and attack and become tangled.
What is Super Smash Bros. Ultimate?
The crossover fighting game was released in 2018 by Japanese Bandai Namco Studios and Sora Ltd. developed and published by Nintendo for Nintendo Switch. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is the 5th installmentth in the series and follows Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS and Wii U.
The player’s goal is to control one of the different characters, now Pochita, and use different attacks to weaken his opponent and knock him out of the arena. You can play the game as a single player or engage in multiplayer.
The game features 89 playable fighters, including all characters from previous Super Smash Bros games, including Nintendo mascots and even anime characters like Pikachu and Sonic the Hedgehog.
Super Smash Bros. Ultimate series creator and director Masahiro Sakurai wanted to include every character from the previous games in the series, although he knew it would present a licensing challenge. The game’s theme song “Lifelight” was composed by Hideki Sakamoto.
Ultimate is one of the best-selling fighting games of all time, having sold over 28 million copies as of June 2022.

What is the plot of Chainsaw Man?
The story takes place in a world where devils are born out of human fears and manifested in reality. The devils tend to be evil and dangerous, and are as powerful as the fear they can inspire. However, as the need for “devil hunters” arose, so did the need to make treaties with the devils to gain their power and fight fire with fire. The devils usually live in a dimension called “Hell”, but if they are killed there, they are transported to the physical plane of Earth. Once a devil is killed on earth, he returns to hell.
The story revolves around an impoverished young man named Denji who struggles to find odd jobs to survive due to the staggering debt left by his father. He befriends a dog-like devil named Pochita and together they collect devil corpses to make money.
One day, however, Denji is betrayed and killed. Just as his consciousness is fading, he decides to make a deal with Pochita. The devil fuses his body with Denji, granting him the ability to turn parts of his body into deadly chainsaws. With his newfound power, Denji joins the Public Safety Devil Hunters – a government agency tasked with fighting devils when they become a threat to humanity.
