Well hello there people.
It is me… Da Mangaka, creator of fics like "LoZ – Metroid's Shadow" (which is on season 2 wohoo!) and "Tsuki no Tenshi Ikkimasu" (on hiatus sadly)
As you might know, Super Smash Brothers Brawl is coming. This game is also referenced as "Dairantou Smash Bros X". Just a point to check. I will be using the Japanese names as I've gotten used to them. So:
Super Smash Brothers / Nintendo All Star Dairantou Smash Brothers
Super Smash Brothers Melee / Dairantou Smash Brothers DX (Deluxe)
Super Smash Brothers Brawl / Dairantou Smash Brothers X
Super Smash Brothers Battle Royale / Dairantou Smash Brothers EX
The last one is made by me of course; as such game doesn't exist… yet.
Most of you might have mixed feeling about the final rooster, but don't worry! For many things might be addressed in this fic.
Now, I won't make the story cut due my introduction as you may already know how I work with my fics. So now, the Disclaimer:
The Smash Brothers series belong solely to Nintendo. Other Characters belong to their respective owners.
"…and we have it! The last newcomer for the Dairantou Smash Brothers X tournament shall be announced soon! But first let me reprise you the new features of this year's game!"
Master Hand announced to the excited public. Certainly they have been waiting a lot, not to mention that due many particular reasons some of them wanted the information badly. Some even came to sleep in their places to have a look at the new fighters for the tournament, camping with plenty of soda, chips and candy and of course a DS.
In the arena where the giant glove stood where the confirmed 34 smashers, greeting their fans from afar.
Peach was particularly busy in doing so, waving gently at the crowd. Zelda did so too but for courtesy and Samus wasn't much particularly interested in doing so. But it was alright, her fans knew it: the more bad-ass and cold she looked the more awesome she was. At the contrary of the 2 princesses beside her, she was one of the few who could actually make cussing and hard hits something to be excited at.
In the middle of the smashers was Mario, making sure to salute some of his own fans and looking at the new comers. For a veteran like him there where certainly surprises: Snake was in Brawl and he didn't look much excited about it but who could blame him: he's a tactical military mind that has little time to have this kind of 'rests'. On the other hand was the biggest surprise for him: Sonic.
Sonic was currently chatting with Captain Falcon about how fast each of them could get, Falcon trying to defend himself using the speed of his proud Blue Falcon as reference. Sonic just chuckled at it, taunting him that he could go even faster.
Now, for years Mario and Sonic had been rivals but later on they wondered the reason of the why.
Sure, they where housed in different places, they had different powers and attitudes, but one cannot say that they could be enemies. He even once wondered if he could be a friend to him, offer a true battle and probably get to know each other. Now that was a perfect time.
"So, surprise to see me Mario?" he heard his voice behind him. Apparently he finished off with Falcon's discussion and headed to see the head of Nintendo.
"Well, I can't-a say I am not-a, but-a, you are welcome to this tournament-a. Although there might be only one problem-a"
"And what is that plumber guy?" Sonic sneered
"I am-a going to win-a"
"Oh… that we will see later though guy…"
On the other side of the ring, Pit – a newcomer – was incredibly surprised at the crowd and how fast he had gotten fans. There where girls squeaking constantly his name and as he waved some of them even fainted.
"By Patulena, I never thought I would be that popular" he laughed nervously, blushing slightly. This only caused the fangirls to squeak more.
"Yeah… I know what you mean" Ike sighed. Some of his fangirls not only squeaked more but also held "MARTH x IKE FOREVER" signs "I just got here and I've been paired already…"
"Who is Marth by the way?" Pit tilted his head confused
Ike pointed to the blue haired prince. He was arranging his hair using his free hand, while the other harnessed his sword. At noticing Ike's look, he decided to turn around.
"I don't understand how do people like that boys like boys…" the angel was now completely confused
"I don't either… rabid crazy fan girls…"
Diddy Kong was currently beside Donkey, dancing around and giving spins in a joyful way. Never would he have thought he would be in such tournament. He was a bit sad that Dixie wasn't around but… hey! He was there! Now time to enjoy!
Donkey hit his chest with his hands, showing his power to the public. He also had a great fanbase which not only respected him by his power, but his fun way of being.
"Hmmm, they are delaying the announcement again…" Ganondorf said a bit irritated "I want to see who exactly this last person is"
"Better be one from our side…" Koopa growled "Mewtwo wasn't exactly what we can call a bad guy…"
"Yeah, just another weakling"
From afar, the psychic pokemon frowned.
"Weakling? Well… we'll see about that…"
"Watta 'bout me? Wario!" Mario's nemesis caught to the 'evil' pair conversation.
"Naaaaa… you're not much of a bad guy either…"
"But I steal and ram you with my bike-a"
"But have you gone to kill?" Ganondorf eyed him, his arms crossed "No, I don't think so. Koopa here might not be a standard bad guy but he at least has the … hmm… guts?"
"…what ever. Kidnapping Peach counts for I do the same with Zelda…"
"Yes… and always thwarted by our nemesis…"
Both looked at their respective 'stings'.
"That dreaded Hero of Time…" Ganondorf frowned
"That stupid plumber… messing with my plans!" Koopa growled yet again.
"Er… and what about me you guys? I think you're missing the best of the evil, the one and the best, the unique and only King Dedede"
The trio turned towards the voice. A proud blue and big penguin was smiling, holding his favorite mallet on his shoulder.
Confused looks within the three, wondering when he had arrived.
"Yeah, yeah… you might say also I am not evil… BUT! Are any of you Kings?... Noooo, I think not… not even Mr. I'm all mighty and dark is king"
"Shut up you insolent penguin" Ganon gritted his teeth "And for your information, I was king of Hyrule for 7 years… before…"
"Oh please, a wimpy kid knocked you out? Bah… you guys suck"
"Well, at least our archrivals aren't as stupid as yours…" Koopa laughed "Your worse enemy is a pink walking vacuum with no mind of it's own? How stupid can that be?"
Dedede frowned angry, gritting his teeth. This made the due laugh more at him.
"ARGH! Well! Try to fight at a 'eat-it-all' fighter like him. I'm sure most of you have experienced his powers!"
"What ever…" Ganon delivered a last chuckle
Not to far from the trio (or quartet?) of 'evil', Kirby was waving to the crowd also, amused at how loud they scram his name. He was really happy. And to add to his happiness 2 of his best friends joined: Metaknigth and Dedede.
Well, certainly Dedede isn't much of a friend, but neither is he a threat. And besides, the most important part of the tournament wasn't much the fight… but the FOOD!
"POYO!" Kirby exclaimed, remembering the usual feasts back on DX.
"Kirby, as much as I say I am honored to fight you I must warn you: will not hold back my blows. Be ready, for I am going to make this tournament mine" Metaknigth spoke, slashing Galaxia in the air to prove so.
"Poyo?" the puffball tilted what head he had (or his body in this case?) not much getting it.
"What I mean is that I want you to fight with all your might: there are other competitors that are going to be much rougher than I. I'll be waiting your match"
"Poyo!" he replied happily, tipiti-tapping the floor as he jumped.
All of a sudden a beeping sound was heard. One that one of the smashers knew well.
"What is it Otakon?" Snake whispered at the receiver.
"Hey there Snake!" Otakon replied "We just wanna wish you luck on this mission. It'll be a hard one… not to mention a funny one"
Another beep came up
"And can you please present me that Pikachu? He looks soooo cute" Mei Ling suddenly appeared
"What is it with you and the little electric rat?" Snake rolled his eyes
"Aww, but can't you see he's cute? Look at how he moves and his eyes. Darling I say"
"….hmmm, yeah, whatever…"
"You sure you don't need more equipment?" Otakon voice sounded again
"I don't think so. Surely this is not me facing a Metal Gear again, so I'm packed up with what I need…"
"Just remember you can't smoke in the Mansion!" her voice sounded "And just to make sure, I took your pack of cigs! I don't want you to get in trouble and get out of there too quickly without me getting a glimpse of that Pikachu"
"…right…" again he rolled his eyes
"Snake" another voice came on the codec
"Snake, this might not be the usual missions you get appointed to, but don't forget that this is as important as any of them before"
"Got it, now… how is it possible that many people on the codec anyways?"
"Well…" Otakon laughed "I got a sort of help from this frog like creature…."
"Ah… not again. He hacked the codec once… I was totally freaked out that time…"
"Well yeah, but he's really slick on tech too. But, anyways we'll be leaving you. Just remember we'll be backing you up if you need some info and stuff"
"See you later Snake" Mei Ling giggled
"yeah… see you too…"
"Good luck Snake"
"Pika pika pikaaaa!"
"Pu purin purin!"
The Pokémon where having a chat of their own, talking about the new allies within the pokeballs and wondering if the last person coming would be a Pokémon.
Pichu was sad, for in the past tournament he didn't do too good, but Pikachu was supportive, telling him that it was alright and if he trained hard he could be getting into the next tournament.
Pichu jumped happily now, waving to the fans he could probably gotten. Not much attention he had back in the old tournament. He knew it but still, he had to say goodbye anyways.
Lucario felt Mewtwo's aura and quickly turned towards him
"…that I was replaced by a fighting type"
"Replaced? What do you mean? They still need to make the announcement of the last smasher… you can't say you…"
The psychic nodded slowly. There was no irritation nor sadness in his eyes, he was actually pretty calm about it.
"I am psychic you know…"
"Then who is the last…"
"….and finally! The moment you waited for!"
As in cue, Master Hand had finished saying the rules, the new features and other things and prepared himself to say the biggest news. People grew more exited and even raised from their seats.
"The Last Smasher is..."
Even the current smashers where attend to the announcement, silencing any conversation and stopping any attention to the fans.
R.O.B, one of the newest additions, turned in 360, trying to spot the newcomer.
Fans scam exited, already some of them holding posters welcoming Wolf.
Fox wasn't that much of happy.
"WHAT?!" he frowned
"Meh… more meat to the fry…" Falco crossed his arms
"You do realize this is Wolf… the Wolf from Star Wolf"
"Big deal… I always wanted to whoop his ass personally…"
Their sights where driven to the voice's source.
"Ah, if it isn't Fox McCloud… and Lombardi also. I was surprised you even made it in to the rooster"
"Bad weed doesn't die easily ya know"
"I see… well, at least this time I can get to defeat you personally. Wouldn't you find this something amusing my dear Fox?"
"You bet…" Fox now smiled "And finally we might be able to prove which is better"
"That's the spirit, I was starting to believe you where afraid to challenge me… but no matter, I will see you later then…"
Waving a hand, he turned his back on them and walked to the front of the arena to salute the horde of people.
"I still can't believe it… Wolf…"
"Meh, we knew it was coming sooner or later"
"But one thing is true you know" Fox smiled "That you returned to the tournament"
"Wha? You thought I was dropping out? No way! If I can get to kick your ass, I'm in it"
"Yeah, I thought so…" he crossed his arms "Guess I'll have to give the news to Kristal too…"
Marth aproaced the red haired prince, which was already starting to leave
"It's alright Marth. Besides, I have unconcluded business on my kingdom"
Turning to the prince, Roy smiled
"Besides, I'm sure you'll have fun with Ike"
"Maybe, but dual challenges won't be the same"
"Holy snaps… the fan girls got you?" Roy started to laugh. At this Marth blushed slightly
"No… what? Wait! No… it's not because of that!"
"I know" he started to stop his laughter, some tears on his eyes due to it "I just wanted to see your reaction before I leave… making you go nuts was my favorite part of being here"
"You know I still hate you for that… and you owe me for that mischarged mine…"
"I'll maybe be able to pay it later… or maybe not. Only destiny will tell. And besides…"
He pointed to one of the many 'Marth x Ike' posters "you'll be busy with your new … hmm.. what the fanfic girls call it? 'Seme'?"
Roy started to laugh yet again
"Hah! You are easier to snap than Peach over there, and we do know how her constant PMS is"
"I guess you're right…" Marth sighed
After a moment of silence, both made one last sword salute: both lifted their swords and made it cling with each other. The light from the stadium made it bright, enabling the fans to see the act. At that point, they started to applause: Roy, from the 'Fire Emblem' team was not returning and he was leaving in the most honorable way.
At this, Link, Ike, Metaknight Toon Link and Kirby (who was able to suck Toon Link before hand) raised their swords in their direction, giving a much more solemn feeling to such act.
"I can't say I'll miss you… but well" Roy smiled
"Until our paths join again, my brother in arms…"
"Well, now, let's give a grand applause to all those leaving" Master Hand said, inviting the ones left away from the tournament into the center.
The spotlight hit them and they gave one last wave to the fans.
"From the 'Mushroom Team' Doctor Mario!"
Doctor Mario walked to the front, making one last 'pill juggle' to the crowd, which applauded energetically
"From the 'Hyrule Team' Young Link!"
Young Link came to the front and made the same Salute of Swords with his older self. Both of them stared at each other for a moment. The other swordsman repeated the gestures made towards Roy
"Well, I guess… I'll see you later…"
As soon as they finished speaking, the younger incantation withdrew his sword and started to play the 'Song of Time' in his ocarina, making him slowly disappear.
Link was a bit sad due to his elimination, but he was sure he would be ok back where he belonged.
"From the 'Fire Emblem' Team, Roy!"
Fangirls started to cry and wave goodbyes to the crimson colored swordsman who replied with a jump and a slash in the air.
Marth rolled his eyes amused
"One last flirting with the girls Roy?"
"Hey! I was the popular one from the two…" he winked with a cocky smile
"WE LOVE YOU ROY!" It was heard from the girls in the stadium
"I love you two ladies! But for now, I rest my duties to Ike! Have fun with him!"
"Wait! What do you mean with…?" Ike looked at him confused
"Oh, you'll learn later dude…"
'From the 'Pokémon' Team, Pichu!"
Pichu waved and waved, jumping due it's size to the small crowd that cheered at him. He wasn't much of a favorite due his lack of power, but girls had to point out he was dang cute.
So much of the crowd calling him was obviously female.
"PIIIIIIIIiiiicHUUUU!" They changed
"Pichu pichuuuuu!" the mouse returned a squeak.
"And finally, also from the 'Pokémon' team, Mewtwo"
He also didn't have a large fanbase but he would care less. The tournament had helped him to meet more challenges and ways to face them, each of them making him stronger in the power and in the inner state. Smirking, he simply crossed his arms and gave one of his signature laughs.
"Man… I am going to miss that laugh" Samus smirked beneath her helmet
"It's a shame that most of the people cut out from the tournament where Pokémon" Peach sighed, crossing her hands and placing them on her chest "But, with all the newcomers, they had to do so…"
"Not to mention we have one that manages three" Zelda pointed to the Pokémon Trainer, who was fascinated at Mewtwo. He idly wondered why such a Legendary Pokémon was leaving but… well; he could now get a chance to catch him later.
"Sorry kid, but my Trainer is waiting…" a psychic message to the boy who looked around surprised. Mewtwo smirked. Whether that was true or not was left to be solved later.
The 3 remaining battlers started to turn around and leave the stadium for one last time, fans of them and random crowd cheering and clapping madly.
"Oh no… the Doctor is-a leaving" Luigi ran to Mario, shaking him
"Yes-a, I know" he replied a bit sad "But-a, I am sure he might be back-a for later"
Dr. Mario stopped walking and looked at the Mario Brothers.
"Mario Mario and Luigi Mario…"
"Yes?" both replied
"It was-a fun playing with you two, but now-a I will leave this tournament to you two-a"
With nothing else, the Doctor left the house.
"No! This can't be!"
Ness, who was busy showing the rules of the smash tournament to Lucas, came running towards Mewtwo who just looked at him curious
"You can't leave! Not with my training uncompleted!"
The psychic pokemon sighed, placing one hand on the boy's head
"And now we had Lucas. I was telling him we where going to be the Psychic Trio! You me and him! That you could train us and make us as powerful as you! How can I tell him that won't be possible? … and also… how can we…"
"Ness" Mewtwo spoke solemnly "You and Lucas have a great power that only needs to be managed more. Trials shape one's being as well as the power within. As for the training, I could probably do it so via psy-link."
"But it won't be the same…"
"Ness" again he spoke "Time comes when a pupil must leave the teacher to experience on his own. Now you must be Lucas' teacher. Do not doubt your powers; I am sure you can make it…"
The kid nodded. He wasn't sure if it was going to work but, if Mewtwo had said it…
"Alright! I'll do my best!"
"Make the 'Psycho Soldiers' proud. Let them fear your psychic powers, your abilities and your defenses. And more importantly: never doubt and always try to do the best you can."
Lucas waved Ness from afar and after a while, the other psychic boy went to his encounter.
"See you later then Mewtwo!"
A shadow was casted on the floor, one that was familiar for the psychic cat.
"Good evening to you too. This will be the last time I might wave you I guess."
"Not quite, who knows, we might encounter ourselves later."
"I am going to miss kicking your but on your own Stadium"
"And me throwing you to the endless bottom of the lava infested stage you have, but we can't have everything. I have things to do and you have another tournament to win, so I say we will be quite busy…"
"I guess" she smiled under her helmet "Not to mention you are the only fighter from this place I talk to."
"You might have to change that strategy then: shadows exist there but sometimes don't speak"
"Oh I know of a shadow that does so…"
"Hmm, and which is?"
At that moment, Game and Watch beeped, apparently he lost something and passed beside the pair without much.
"Just because he's black it doesn't mean he is a shadow…"
"Just a joke of my own…"
Both stared at each other for a moment. Words weren't needed for the moment. Either if it was because of psychic communication or just because they've learnt to do so it wasn't so explained.
But after a while they stopped, Mewtwo leaving towards the exit of the stadium.
"See you later then…" Samus smirked
Now completely engulfed by the shadows, the psychic Pokémon spoke one last time.
"You too… Justin Bailey…"
"What?" she frowned.
For some reason, her suit started to click, getting loose by the time it passed. Soon, the hunter clad in metal was no more, and instead remained Samus in her Zero suit.
"ARGH! MEWTWO!" she covered herself as if she where naked. The truth is that, due to so many time spent on the suit, it did felt so.
"Get used to it… for what I know… that will be a new way to battle"
"Well that doesn't give you the permit to make it…."
Samus turned around, noticing Falcon's look on her but.
"Give me one good reason why I shouldn't Falcon Punch you in the face…"
With one last laughter from the psychic cat and some squeaking from the electric mouse, the dark halls of the stadium became silent. They would be remembered as fighters while the new tournament was being held. All the competitors fought with passion, mischief and honor… until the Subspace Emissary struck.
Hard times where for the smashers, trying to get a grip of what was going on and who had done it. But after that, life went much to normal.
And it continued to be like that…. Until now…
Dairantou Smash Brothers EX
Wooooh… long prologue eh?
Well, my fics tend to be long XD;
Oh well… so that's that.
See you later!
