Yoshi is one of the most beloved Nintendo characters, leading to his popularity in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. Unfortunately, Yoshi isn’t very competitive and is more on the weak side than his fighter counterparts. That’s why you need to download the Yoshi Moveset Edits mod that overhauls Yoshi’s move set, making him more straightforward to use and even adding some new moves to make him a better competitor overall.

While many skin mods are available for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, you can’t go wrong with the N64 Link mod. This mod does as it implies and adds a skin that changes Link into the Nintendo 64 version of the legendary hero. This is a great way to make the game feel more classic and pixelated, as it will bring back memories from one of the best Zelda games ever created — The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time.

Best Boss Mod for Smash Ultimate – Smash 64 Master Hand

Remember the Master Hand from Super Smash Bros. Melee? This iconic boss was a joy to fight against back in the day as it offered a great challenge of learning its movements and avoiding the devastating lasers that came out of the fingertips. You can add this boss to Super Smash Bros. Ultimate by downloading the Smash 64 Master Hand, bringing up old memories of Smash Melee.

Best Music Mod for Smash Ultimate – Phenom’s Custom Music Pack

The music in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is excellent, but if you’re a player with over 1000 hours like most die-hard fans, then you probably have grown tired of the same tracks playing. No worries. You can add the Phenom’s Custom Music Pack mod that adds over 3,000 songs to the game, ranging from genres to giving you more beats to listen to as you fight your way to victory.

The Project ui2k mod is an excellent addition to Super Smash Bros. Ultimate as it makes many changes to the game menu’s UI. It changes the main menu, rules menu, stage and character selection screen, loading screen, transitions, and much more. This is a great way to change the feel of the game, making it feel fresh.

Best Effects Mod for Smash Ultimate – Sonic Speed Trails+

The Sonic Speed Trails mod focuses on effects, specifically Sonic’s trails. While the game includes a trail for Sonic, they aren’t as clear as they should be, so this mod aims to fix that. You can expect Sonic’s trails to be big, bright, and bold as he runs across the stages. This is a great way to make Sonic feel more alive and accurate to the actual character from the Sonic series.

Best Stages Mod for Smash Ultimate – Calamity Ganon’s Sanctum

The Calamity Ganon’s Sanctum stage mod replaces the background of the Great Plateau and inputs a new background that represents the epic boss battle against Ganon in Breath of the Wild. It’s not only a love letter to Zelda fans, but it also looks better than the game’s original version. If you aren’t a fan of Calamity Ganon’s Sanctum, feel free to check out other stages available for Zelda on the Game Banana website!

This is a simple yet useful mod that adds Rex to the final smash execution regardless of the Xenoblade character you are using. During the final smash sequence, his skin is posted over one of the characters, making him feel like he’s part of the game.
