Smash Bros. Lore Theory May Make You Regret Beating Up On Master Hand

Is it possible that the big bosses featured in every Super Smash Bros. game—Master Hand, Crazy Hand, Tabuu, and Master Core—really represent different aspects of series creator Masahiro Sakurai?

It sounds crazy (hand), but this video from The Game Theorists might actually convince you that it's at least possible. Even if the video has some leaps in logic (and some of its jokes fall flatter than Mr. Game & Watch) it does include a substantial amount of evidence—from quotes from interviews with Sakurai to the tiniest of clues from within all five Smash Bros. games.

Even if you don't accept the theory, I bet it will at least cross your mind the next time you're wailing on poor old Master Hand.

I like these "Lore" videos as a nice thinkpiece on the stories behind games and their settings, but it's bothering me that I'm finding people taking every bit of the information in them as canon, and using the video as "proof".

Has anyone else run across this?
