Talented "Super Smash Bros" fans have replaced the game's character Ryu with "Dragon Ball's" Son Goku. By using a few tech nips, they have managed to make modifications to the game so as to allow him to become a playable character.

According to Nintendo News, by using the character frame for "Street Fighter's" Ryu, the fans employed precision texture and vertex hacks, and incorporated a voice pack to the modification to bring out Goku's signature techniques. Players who have played the modified version say that when they play the game, Goku is occasionally heard saying "Dragon Fist" and "Kamehameha," two of the names that signify his skills.

The results of the modification have come out in an accurate manner similar to an expert game developer's work. In fact, a 4-minute video showcasing the final gameplay has already been uploaded online. It shows two Gokus facing each other in the Mushroom Kingdom U stage in "Super Smash Bros" for Wii U.

While this is not official, it has opened the minds of players as to who could be appearing in future "Super Smash Bros" games. According to game analyst Scott Smillie, however, it is most unlikely that Goku will be joining "Super Smash Bros" because Bandai Namco has its own games to sell, Cultured Vultures reported.

On the other hand, unexpected things have happened in the past. For example, characters like Mega Man, Bayonetta, Pac-Man, Sonic, Watch, Mr. Game, R.O.B, and Solid Snake have made surprising appearances. Therefore, it cannot be ruled out that even the most unexpected characters could join the "Super Smash Bros" roster in future.

Currently, "Super Smash Bros" boasts of one of the most diverse rosters of playable characters. But still, modders are not showing any signs of stopping their efforts of adding fighters that they would like to see in the game.

The mods are possible because anyone can add custom textures and other related accouterments to "Smash U," which leads to too many characters getting cheaply made for the game. Yet, some "Super Smash Bros" are not pleased with this, especially with the adding of Goku. They believe that "it is a big joke" for a "Dragon Ball" character to see his way into "Super Smash Bros."
