No, Ronald McDonald isn’t coming to Smash Bros. Ultimate

Ah, the internet. Where Goku in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate was once the most preposterous potential fighter imaginable. That title, though, has been overtaken by none other than Ronald McDonald after a tweet by the official McDonald’s Twitter account.

A fan asked about whether or not the McDonald’s mascot will be mcMakin’ his way to Smash, but the fast-food chain promptly denied the question.

I’m not sure if there’s even a rumor that’s pointed to the McDonald’s clown joining the roster. There’s been quite a few leaks, some real, most fake. Ronald McDonald hasn’t been part of any of these stories, though. It’d be truly insane if something like this did happen and an off-the-wall character made it to Smash Bros. Ultimate.

What’s the weirdest possible Super Smash Bros. fighter you can imagine? Be sure to let us know down in the comments section!
