So, here's a fanfic that I used to work on a long while back that I've decided to revive here. As you can tell from the title, it's a Super Smash Bros. Fic (I wrote it around the time the fourth game came around). It's a lighthearted action/comedy and I'mma try to focus on the comedic chemistry between the smashers. With that out of the way, let's get started!
Mario awoke from a particularly weird dream he had last night. Something about having to save the world from a frog by throwing vegetables at him. He shrugged it off for now as he got out of bed. Today was a huge day for him: It was time once again to announce the new Smash Brothers tournament! He threw on his usual outfit: Red shirt and pants, blue overalls, brown shoes, and of course: His trademark hat.
"Mari-ooooooooo! Mari-ooooo!" A high-pitched voice with an italian accent called from behind the door. Mario walked over to the door and opened it, only to see his tall, but still younger brother Luigi standing there.
"What-a is it, Luigi?" Mario asked, still tired.
"Have-a you seen what time it is?" He asked in a voice that implied that he was in a hurry. He pointed to the digital clock on Mario's dresser, displaying the time as "7:30". Mario's eyes widened with shock.
"Luigi," He began worridley "What-a Time were we supposed to be at the opening?"
"7:00" Lugi replied.
"And what time did the opening start?" Mario asked.
"6:30." Luigi replied sheepishly. Mario let out a yell of surprise, grabbed Lugi, and ran out of the house, jumped in his Mario Kart, and drove off to the place where the opening was being held: the training area for newcomers known as Smash Academy.
"WHY-A DIDN'T YOU TELL ME I SLEPT IN?!" Mario yelled as he drove as fast as he could.
"M-Mario-" Luigi stammered out, trying to alert Mario to the fact that he was about to drive over a ramp.
"THIRTY MINUTES LATE! THIRTY! MINUTES! LATE!" Mario continued to shout. He wasn't a morning person as is, but now he had the added stress of being late to an important event, probably THE most important event. "WHY DIDN'T YOU WARN--" His rant was cut short by Luigi's shouting.
"RAMP!!!" He shouted, pointing to the ramp that they were about to go over. Mario simply sped up, Hoping that the distance cleared by going over the ramp would get them closer to their destination.
Mario's kind of crazy like that.
Anyway, Mario's hypothesis turned out to be correct, as the ramp did cause them to land in the parking lot of the Smash Academy.
Right on Wario's Motorbike.
"OH COME ON!" Wario shouted, noticing that the two had arrived. "I JUST PAID THAT OFF!". Mario didn't pay him any mind as he hurried over to a large mansion, the Smash Manor, which had a stage in front of it where everyone was setting up.
"Hey," Captain Falcon said with a smug grin. "Look who's late again."
"Shut." Mario said as he walked over to a group of smashers who were just chatting.
"Forgive-A him. Luigi said to Falcon. "He's-a not a morning person."
"Yeah, no kidding." Falcon said. "Anyway, it doesn't matter, we haven't started letting the crowds in yet.". Luigi looked at him confusedly.
"But the notification said we started at-"
"There's a difference between when we start and when we start letting people in, Luigi." Falcon replied. "We've just been getting stuff set up and hanging around until 8:00."
"Oh." Luigi said. He went over to where Mario was, hoping to see what he missed.
"And so I said, 'That's not a Virtual Boy, that's something actually worth your time!'" Kirby said, finishing a joke he was telling some other smashers. "Oh hey Luigi!" He exclaimed as Luigi joined the group.
"Hey," Luigi said tiredly. "So, What's-A going on?".
"What's going on? Smash Bros is happening again! There's gonna be new EVERYTHING! New assist trophies, new items, new Trophies that don't do anything but are still really fun to stare at, and more newcomers are coming! More newcomers means more new people and more people means more friends...."
'Mama Mia!' Luigi thought as Kirby continued to ramble. He liked Kirby, but sometimes, his ramblings lead to headaches and headaches lead to advil and-oh god he's got me doing it! Kirby then proceeded to stage 2 of over-excitement: Jumping into someone's arms and trying to get them excited.
"Areyouexcitedcuzi'mexcitedi'msoexcitedyayexcited!!!" As he continued to state his excitement, another puffball, this one with ears and a little curl on her head, came over and pulled Kirby off of Luigi.
"Easy Kirby, Easy...Easy..." She said, rubbing his head to get him to calm down. He smiled and gave her a hug.
"Thanks Jigglypuff." Kirby said. "Wanna go get some food?"
"You don't have to ask me twice!" Jigglypuff said, taking Kirby's hand to go get something to eat.
"Well that was...Something, wasn't it?" Mario asked as Luigi held his hand to his head. Before Luigi could say anything, another familiar face walked by them, this one in orange armor.
"Hey boys," Samus said. She took off her helmet and gave Mario a smug smile. "30 Minutes late, that's a new record for you, Mario.".
"SHUT." He replied. "NOW IS-A REALLY NOT THE TIME TO-A TEST ME.". Samus held up her hands, still smiling.
"Hey, I was just joking. Looks like someone didn't have their morning coffee."
"Someone didn't wake me up at 7:00." Mario said, looking at Luigi.
"Eh, it doesn't matter now, you're here and that's where we need you." She looked at her wristwatch and saw that the time displayed was 8:55.
"Places, people!" Samus shouted, walking onto the stage. "We got a big day ahead of us!". All around the presentation area, Smashers scrambled to get everything ready.
"I'll go get snacks!" Kirby said, going to get the refreshments for the guests. Samus picked him up and set him down on a stool next to the other original 12.
"Oh no you won't!" Samus said. "We need you up on the stage with the other original 12. Besides, last time we sent you to get the refreshments for the guests, you came back with a lot of empty boxes and you looked like 'Twinkie Kirby' or some ridiculous sh*t like that!"
"Oh yeah!" Kirby said, remembering now. "Good times, goooooooooooooood times."
"Gates are opening in 5, 4, 3..." R.O.B announced.
"This is it, Mario." Captain Falcon said, turning to the italian plumber, who looked like he was about to slump over in his stool. He gave Mario a quick elbow in the ribs to wake him up.
"Look alive! You're reading the opening speech!" He said. He handed Mario a piece of paper with the opening speech typed on it. It was short, but readable.
"I got this..." Mario said, slowly and slurred.
"2, 1!" R.O.B continued. The gates opened and in flooded a crowd of both press and eager fans alike. They crowded around the stage, all cheering for the veterans. Captain Falcon stood up and held up a hand to motion for silence. The crowd went dead silent as he cleared his throat and began to speak.
"Welcome, one and all to the new smash brothers announcement! We appreciate your enthusiasm for the new tournament, it's been far to long, hasn't it?"
"Got that right!" A voice from the crowd called, eliciting a few laughs in the audience. Captain Falcon continued, despite the interruption.
"We can definitely guarantee that this new tournament will be bigger and better than ever! You'll see a bunch of old favorites, and some new faces too! But who am I to talk about how great this will be? Let's hear about it from the tongue of our very own Mascot, Mario!!!". The crowd burst into cheers as Mario walked on stage carrying the speech. He began to talk in a tired monotone.
"That's right, Falcon, this new tournament will be the best thing you'll see all year. The fights will be intense, the series will reach new heights, and they popcorn won't be bad either. Pause, wait for audience to laugh.". Samus ran up on stage and motioned for Mario to go back to his stool where he promptly fell asleep.
"That's right Mario!!!" Samus said in a voice that sounded like she was trying too hard to be cheery. "And we can definitely guarantee there'll be some surprises with the new faces! Some of them you would have never expected to see again."
"Who?" A voice called from the audience. Samus gave the audience member a smile.
"That," She said. "Is going to be a surprise."
