With the Super Smash Bros. Ultimate 9.0.0 update, Minecraft's Steve made his way into the game. We love the character, as Minecraft's Steve is the worst in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, and that’s why he’s incredible. One of his victory screens, however, has been stealth changed in the latest update, essentially nerfing the unfortunate position of his meat.
Minecraft's Steve meat position in SSBU
For reference, Minecraft's Steve in SSBU has a victory screen first showing the character chowing down on his meat.
As he slots into the frame, he holds his meat in an unfortunate position. Let's not beat around the bush here (sorry), as well all know what it looks like.
In the Super Smash Bros. Ultimate patch 9.0.1, Nintendo removed Steve's meat, and this whopping change isn't even in the patch notes.
As reported by Kotaku, Steve's meat positioning in SSBU is now a thing of the past. Kotaku's editor-in-chief, Stephen Totilo, also noted how he asked Xbox's head honcho, Phil Spencer, about Minecraft Steve's meat in SSBU, and Mr Spencer said: "I assume that will be fixed."

While the victory screen was hilarious, it has now been removed, and there's simply no way Steve's meat will return to grace the battlefield of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate in the future.
Check out the result of this "stealth nerf" below.
