Smash Bros. Characters Sure Suck at Swimming

Good at fighting? Yes. Good at swimming? Nope. Not at all.

Via YouTuber Master0fHyrule, this compilation shows swimming—and drowning—animations for the characters in Super Smash Bros. for Wii U.


Obviously, the reason why the characters die so quickly is so the game doesn't grind to a halt. This isn't water sports!

Watching the clip, it is fascinating to see the variety in swimming styles as well as how quickly they end up in watery graves.
