As the finale for our Minecraft centric day, SlowDragon has provided some more content to help represent the blocky sandbox game in Smash Bros! SlowDragon can be found both on Smash Boards, Twitter and YouTube so go ahead and check him out if you enjoyed this article or wanted to contact him for any reason.

Two of the most centric parts of Minecraft are the Items and Mobs, so I’ve of course designed a generous amount of useful equipment that could possibly appear during battle. To be more specific, I created two Assist Trophies and two Items, as well as some Trophies. Without further ado, let’s get right into it!
Golden Apple – Item
The fabled Golden Apple will give fighters the strength to stay in the battle! When eaten, the fighter gains pink particles around them, and the amount of knockback they receive will be drastically smaller, but the damage they take will stay the same. Be careful when it runs out, because one quick Smash could send you rocketing away!
Elytra – Item
The Elytra is a new feature in Minecraft that allows players to soar through the skies, but will break after extended use. In Smash Bros, it works very similarly by allowing players to glide across gaps like in Super Smash Bros Brawl, but will eventually break and send them falling back to the stage! It can be activated by holding the Jump Button after jumping, akin to Peach’s hover, and is ended by letting go of the Button.
Wolf – Assist Trophy
When summoned, this blocky pup will be very protective of it’s owner. It will attack any opponents that come near, but unfortunately isn’t the strongest biter. When knocked off the stage, the Wolf will teleport back to battle by your side once more! With this little beast, your opponents will have a dog of a time! – Bites do 3%, and he lasts about 15 seconds.
Creeper – Assist Trophy
Hissss – a sound that has plagued the dwellers of the Overworld for years, emitted by the dreaded Creeper. Creepers are a rage of green, four-legged beasts with an eternal grimace plastered on their faces, that explode when they come near anyone they dislike. In Smash Bros, they will slowly walk towards an opponent, and then explode with devastating knockback. Be warned, as there’s a chance of the Creeper spawning with a Supercharge and intensely buffed power! No matter what strength the Creeper has, it is incapable of jumping or recovering if knocked off the stage, so try to bait it away! – 16%, 38% (Supercharged), lasts about 15 seconds.
Now, onto the final part of our show: Trophies! It just wouldn’t Smash without these things, so I’ve prepared Steve’s 3 trophies as well as 10 more!
|For Steve’s Final Smash, he will call upon the malevolent beast that is The Wither. However, Steve has learned to control its deadly power, and can use the Homing Wither Skulls to blast opponents into the void!|

Well, I guess this ends our Minecraft-centric day of Dream Smashers. If you have any ideas for Minecraft implementation in Smash Bros, or want to just leave feedback, please comment below! Who knows, if enough people enjoy this, maybe Nantendo will let me takeover Source Gaming again! If you liked reading my stuff, maybe you’ll like my YouTube channel over at (link)! We do lots of gaming videos, specifically of Smash Bros for Wii U. While you’re at it, if you have some spare cash, maybe you could help Source Gaming attend E3. I love this site, and I’m sure they’d appreciate it! Thanks for reading!
