Story:

Another tournament finished; another crisis resolved. The Super Smash Brothers prepared to return to their home realms and, at Princess Peach's eager suggestion, they agreed to reunite at the Super Smash Brothers Stadium in one year's time. Some of the Smashers, disturbed by how close to doom they came during the events of Subspace Emissary and World of Light, thought it would be wise to keep in contact. Others were simply happy at the idea of reuniting with friends new and old. After good-byes (and one or two vows of vengeance) were made, the fighters of the Super Smash Brothers returned to their home lands.

A year has passed, and the Smash Bros. start making their way back to the Smash Realm only to find that it has changed for the worse. It feels as though the Realm is slowly breaking apart. The land is wracked with spontaneous natural (and unnatural!) disasters, and monsters seem to roam unchecked. Even more shocking, the Hands are nowhere to be seen and the Super Smash Brothers have been made into outlaws with a fine reward promised for proof of a Smasher's capture or demise!

Rules:

1. This RP is meant to be a very casual RP that's easy to join. I don't have any post decoration or post length requirements. All I want is a decent grasp of spelling and grammar, and to give enough material for folks to respond to.

2. OCs are welcome! I only ask that they do not have any strong ties to a Canon Character, such as a long lost relative or ex-lover. Relationships built during the course of the RP are fine.

3. Game canon does not have to be strictly adhered to as Super Smash Bros. itself does not completely follow canon to the games each respective character comes from. We just have to communicate and make sure everyone is on the same page.

4. Any Canon Character that is not in Super Smash Bros. must meet one of the following criteria:

-The character comes from a Nintendo franchise
-The character comes from a game franchise with a long history of being on Nintendo consoles or being published by Nintendo (Ex. Professor Layton)
-The series the character comes from already has some form of representation in Smash Bros., such as a playable character or a Mii Fighter costume (Ex. Dante)

The reason for being strict with characters is that I want this RP to remain "Super Smash Brothers" at its core.

UPDATE: For the time being, I will not be accepting any more Squaresoft/Enix characters.

5. There are some game characters that are generally blank slates with only small hints of a personality (Ex. Link) which leave them more open to interpretation, and some characters can have different personalities between games (Ex. Cloud) or localizations (Ex. Pit). The point is, don't be rude to other players if they're not playing a character exactly how you think they should. That being said, please be reasonable when RPing Canon Characters. Even if you want try a different interpretation of a character, they should still feel like that character. This isn’t a “lolrandom” RP, unless of course “lolrandom” is actually part of the character!

6. Pokemon characters only have 4 moves similar to the games. This includes Pokemon belonging to Pokemon Trainers. Pokemon Trainers cannot own legendary Pokemon. Mundane attacks like biting or tackling do not count as moves. Anything with a mouth can bite and anything with claws can scratch!

7. The Smash Realm is constantly changing and expanding. Feel free to make up landscapes, landmarks, and towns as you want. The only constant thing is the Stadium. It's always in the same spot.

Other:

This is meant to be more of an open-world RP. I want to keep the premise simple so folks can take it and run with it as they want. I've no problem with there being multiple plot-lines going on. Evil-aligned characters can have their own plots and schemes! I am definitely open to ideas, suggestions, and brainstorming.

In the Jungle, Inkling was attacked by Bowser's army. Joker, Paula, Prompto, and Noctus came to the rescue, but Bowser was able to grab Inkling and leave with her. The others were trying to figure out how to help her. Joker used his Persona to free Inkling and attack Bowser's airships.

Sora, Pokey, and Pichu just escaped the Primid-infested factory on the floating island.

Samus, Peach, and Pikachu are traveling deep into the Forest area to find the source of its corruption. They have just come upon an area covered in a thick miasma.

On the coast near Beachside Town, Pyra/Mythra, Toon Link, and Pit are trying to help Jeff, who they found collapsed, and figure out their own course of action.

In Console City, Snake just barely escaped a bunch of wannabe bounty hunters, and just had a run-in with Steve and Kefka.

Roxas is at the Ruins. The character is open for interaction.

Meta Knight, Cyan, and Mog are also at the Ruins, doing battle with sandworms.

Villains

Character Name: Lunaris, Master of Creation and Destruction; Lord of the Moon and Stars
Race/Species: Hylian
Appearance: Tall and lean male Hylian wearing dark blue robes with a hooded cape dotted with silver stars and golden moons; black curled-toe boots, and a silver and gold theatre mask. His right hand wears a golden gauntlet while his left hand wears a silver gauntlet.
Abilities/Powers: Lunaris is a sorcerer who generally focuses on destruction, illusion, and conjuration magics. With Master Hand and Crazy Hand sealed in his gauntlets his magical abilities has grown dramatically, though the resistance from the Hands prevents him from using their full power.
Bio: Sadistic and narcissistic, Lunaris is always seeking ways to obtain more power. A prodigy in sorcery, his magical abilities were already great before he captured the Hands.
Player Name: GrumpySwallow

Character Name: Kap'n Krook
Race/Species: Kremling
Appearance: Slender, with a long tail and blood-red eyes; his two front fangs are golden and he wears a black pirate long coat complete with captain's cap. A large, cruel-looking hook replaces his right hand.
Abilities/Powers: With his long and slender body, Kap'n' Krook is agile and flexible. He often uses his tail as a whip or a battering weapon in a fight. He is also a skilled swordsman and carries a pistol in his belt.
Bio: What he lacks in imposing physique, Kap'n Krook makes up for in viciousness and cunning. He strives to make a name for himself among Kremling pirates, and dreams of eventually surpassing them. His current goal is to control the waters of the Smash Realm.
Player Name: GrumpySwallow

Character Name: General Mugorl
Race/Species: Moblin
Appearance: Resembling a cross between a bulldog and a boar; tall and powerfully built, and donned in the armor of a Darknut and draped in the pelt of a lynel (both of which he defeated in battle), General Mugorl is an imposing figure among Moblins.
Abilities/Powers: General Mugorl relies on his massive size and strength, as well as his skill with the trident, which he carries with a shield.
Bio: General Mugorl is a Moblin native to the Smash Realm and leader of a massive tribe of Moblins and other Blins. Surprisingly intelligent and disciplined for a Moblin, he seeks to build a kingdom for all "Blin-kind".
Player Name: GrumpySwallow

Character Name: Odessa
Race/Species: Human
Appearance: A young woman with long curly brown hair and dark brown eyes. She wears a white peplos paired with a dark purple himation.
Abilities/Powers: A dark priestess, Odessa can conjure Underworld monsters and raise undead servants. She can also empower and heal her allies, and has great knowledge of alchemy. Besides her magic, she is skilled in the bow and staff.
Bio: Once a devout priestess of Palutena, Odessa's faith was shattered during the war among the gods. Now filled with hatred and bitterness for the gods, her goal is to bring the heavens crashing down and end the gods' reign over humans forever. She follows a new master, and leads a secret group called the Cult of Orcos.
Player Name: GrumpySwallow

Character Name: Kip
Race/Species: Koopa Troopa
Appearance: He looks like the typical Bad Koopa Troopa; he has a red shell, wears sunglasses, and spiked wristcuffs. The only real difference he has from the others is that there is one single spike sticking out of the center of his shell. The spike looks like it was glued on.
Abilities/Powers: Nothing remarkable. He can spit out a small fireball! That's something, right?
Bio: Kip is the weakest and lowest-ranking leader among Lunaris's followers. He leads a small band of Koopas and is generally considered a nuisance by everyone.

Have a meme I made after watching a speedrun of Metroid Dread. I found it funny that after all that time, all that planning, and all that bloodshed, all Raven Beak managed to do was inconvenience Samus for an hour. XD

And Samus literally went Super Saiyan and literally became "METROID" for a hot few minutes - the Samus I'll utilize will represent her Post-Dread design.

No problem!

I'm taking more inspiration for Pit's characterization from the NES/GB games, as well as the Japanese version of Uprising as I am not a fan of how the American English dub decided to bludgeon him with the stupid stick.

NES Pit freed HIMSELF from the Underworld jail by beating the crap out of his jailer with his bare hands, and traveled the world ON FOOT while fighting the Underworld Army. Alone. The only help he got from Palutena was the rinky-dink bow he started out with in the game. He made use of maps and pencils, drank booze ("Water of Life" in the US manual, the Japanese version states it's sake), and intimidated shopkeepers. However, according to the English dub of Uprising, he's illiterate, struggles to function without Palutena having to hold his hand and carefully explain everything to him, and is just so stupid that he can't intimidate anyone. The upside to this is that the 4th wall doesn't exist in KI, so it gives me the ability to have some digs at the dub in RP XD

Pit in the Japanese version of Uprising is a lot more competent. Funny enough, in the Japanese version of Uprising, including the animated shorts and manga, Pit is sometimes the more serious one who is exasperated by Palutena's ditzy-ness. I'm not saying Pit has to be a Greek philosopher or be stone-faced serious (the original Kid Icarus is a goofy game, and in the old RPs I played in back in the Brawl days my Pit was a silly and cheeky little shit) but at least make me believe he was fully capable of pulling off the feats he did in the first game!

Kid Icarus is my favorite NES game, and Pit is my favorite Nintendo character, so his dive into idiocy really bothered me.

I recently read a comment about how Smash Ultimate Pit barely smiles, and I was like, "Have y'all seen the art for NES and GB Pit? He's always had a resting bitch face!" XD It is funny that the US dub of Ultimate gives Pit very happy-sounding victory lines while his face is >: C

Dark Pit has to get that grumpiness SOMEWHERE!

aldjaldhalslxjs I have to admit I’ve only experienced Uprising in the form of it’s dub and am honestly too horrible at video gaming in general to even think about playing the older titles myself so I’m super excited to see your take on him!!

For Inkling (who I’m gonna refer to as Agent Three since it’d be weird to refer to them solely by species the entire time lol) I’ll have their character be taken from a little after the events of the octo expansion dlc since the time jump between Splatoon 2 and 3 is pretty darn big. As for their characterization I’m still in the process of ironing out how I’ll want to portray Three but I think I’ll have it figured out by the time the rp starts up. Thankfully Isabelle is a much more defined character so I hopefully won’t have any issues when it comes to portraying her 🐕 🔔

To be honest, I haven't played a single Splatoon game, so don't stress too much lol

A lot of Nintendo characters tend to be blank slates to allow the player to project their own ideas of what the character is like onto them. Link is a good example of this.

Lmao I’ll make sure not to stress myself too badly. Thankfully rn I’m just think about little things like if I want their appearance to be one of the alts or to just stick with the basic orange look or whether I’ll have them be completely silent/speak only in Inklish/just speak plain English, and other surface level stuff like that (okay maybe the language thing isn’t totally surface level but that’s besides the point)

I tend to RP Toon Link silent. I've tried RPing him with dialogue once and it just didn't feel right! Outside of the occasional "'Hoy!" and "C'mon!" I just imply he spoke.

I do headcanon the characters in WW and PH to have Irish and Scottish accents.

speaking of how we're gonna present our characters, yoshi should be pretty straight forward on how i will approach him. he'll likely be much more independent like he is in his own games rather than heavily focused around being a mere companion and given his speech is generally just "yoshi yoshi yoshi" with translated text on the side, i may go with just have it pre-translated if that's cool

joker i will keep at having only one persona since i feel it'd get too messy if he had multiple. i'll generally have him portrayed in his thieves form since i'd assume the smash universe is similar to the metaverse in his own game, so he wouldn't be in his normal form much.

pyra/mythra might be a bit messy, but i have plenty of experience with them. most of how i'll write for them will be changes to making them closer to how they are in xc2 where pyra is weaker (since she is only a portion of mythra's power) while mythra is stronger.

One Yoshi RPer I played with gave him an accent. "I be Yoshi! Yoshi be Smash Brother! You meet Smash Brothers, yah?"

Kind of reminded me of Yoshi in the old Super Mario World cartoon.

Persona and Xenoblades are games I haven't played, though I did do a quick look up of the characters on their wikis.

I like that idea for Yoshi actually. I might have to use that

I don't think I'll make as many large posts like that. Can you also tell I watched a lot of Saturday morning cartoons as a kid? : P
