As you may know, Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is a fighting game consisting of multiple characters of different gaming series. This time around it does not consist of just Nintendo characters, but also a variety of other characters from other games from other companies(Sega for example). During the release of Smash Ultimate, the first DLC character to be released was Piranha Plant from Super Mario. There has been news of another DLC character about to be released and the time has come when that character has finally come to join the fight. Presenting Joker from Persona 5, the third character after Sonic and Bayonetta to represent Sega.

His fighting style consists of using a knife and gun as well as summoning his persona Arsene to boost his attacks.
