Big Dick Energy: Which 'Super Smash Bros. Ultimate' Characters Have BDE?

Mario? No. Dr. Mario? Yes.

All of a sudden, the internet is very concerned with “big dick energy.” The term, which The Cut reports has something to do with Ariana Grande’s love for her fiancé Pete Davidson, might sound crude, but it actually has more to do with your state of mind than any sort of physical attribute.

According to Vice, BDE is all about a sense of “self-assurance that radiates from deep within and can be felt for miles.” It’s a way of life. An attitude. A possibly-unearned sense of self confidence. It’s “inadvertently seeing yourself in the front-facing camera on your phone and not immediately wanting to die.”

With that in mind, the Inverse Entertainment team set out to judge the BDE levels of the entire character roster from Nintendo’s upcoming Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. All 66 of them. From Kirby to Bowser.

Ness definitely has BDE
