Seeking revenge against the violent gang who attacked him and ended his Olympic dreams, he’s determined to battle every colorful combatant in his path.

Sano Fortnite skin!?

Whyt Manga recently posted on Twitter showing that Fortnite had recently released a new character skin that strikingly resembles sano’s Arodihs form.  He said in jest EYOOO! “Fortnite, gimme my check” haha.  Whyt doesn’t actually think that the design was stolen but there are a lot of similarities between the two. Check out the full twitter thread below to see the comparisons.
