The end of Season 9 also included the massive showdown between The Mecha and The Monster. The last day included a Pacific Rim-style battle between two gigantic characters, with The Mecha taking the victory after killing The Monster with the statue in Neo Tilted.

Fortnite will introduce more seasons and chapters to the game in the future to keep the game fresh. But the developers at Epic Games have a tall order at hand, if they want to create something that can top these five because these seasons have affected the game, more than any other.
