A dark secret behind the assist trophy?

Creepy Assist Trophy Has anyone ever noticed how creepy the assist trophy looks in the new Super Smash Bros. for 3DS and for WiiU?

Assist trophies are an item in the Super Smash Bros. series starting from Brawl and also appearing on Super Smash Bros. for 3DS and Super Smash Bros. for WiiU and would summon a random characters from vairous video games. I'm not saying there's a creepy pasta going around about the assist trophy because as we all know, Smash Bros. is played out by a child's imagination using toys and action figures of various Nintendo characters and then some but compared to the assist trophy item design in brawl, the one for SSB4 looks a tad scary.

In Brawl, the assist trophy looked like an action figure in a small glass display case. In SSB4, instead of an action figure of a non-descript toned male in a dynamic stance, they opted for what looks like a ethereal deformed child with blank white eyes. Like something out of the side scrolling puzzle platformer, Limbo.

Could this be a representation of one of the developer's or possibly Sakurai's thoughts, doubts or feelings during the development of Super Smash Bros. 4? Happy halloween, guys.
