In 2014, the Villager became a playable fighter in Super Smash Brothers 4. Following a trailer revealing the Villager's inclusion in Smash, fans of the game quickly began characterizing the Villager as a psychotic and ruthless killer through image macros and video remixes, as well as referencing to them as "Killager".[2]
