Time for Arthur from Ghosts N Goblins

Challenge Again

Theme: Recreating one of the most infamous flaws in Ghosts N Goblins on NES



Round 1:

  • Opponent - :ultdk: Yellow Donkey Kong (Color 7)
  • Stage - Luigi's Mansion
  • Themed Enemy - Big Man
Round 2:

  • Opponent - :ultganondorf: Lighter Hued Ganondorf (Color 6)
  • Stage - Omega Brinstar Depths
  • Themed Enemy - Woody Pig
Round 3:

  • Opponent - :ultmetaknight: Red Meta Knight (Color 3)
  • Stage - Dracula's Castle
  • Themed Enemy - Red Arremer
Round 4:

  • Opponent - :ultdk: Yellow Donkey Kong (Color 7)
  • Stage - Luigi's Mansion
  • Themed Enemy - Big Man
Round 5:

  • Opponent - :ultganondorf: Lighter Hued Ganondorf (Color 6)
  • Stage - Omega Brinstar Depths
  • Themed Enemy - Woody Pig
Round 6

  • Opponent - :ultmetaknight: Red Meta Knight (Color 3)
  • Stage - Dracula's Castle
  • Themed Enemy - Red Arremer
Boss

  • Dracula
Boss Reason

  • The Final Boss of Ghosts N Goblins has many similarities to Dracula.

NOTE:

Firebrand from Gargoyle's Quest will be the next character I do. Firebrand himself is a Red Arremer and Gargoyle's Quest is a spin-off of Ghouls N Ghosts. So in the event that Arthur and Firebrand both would be DLC, then replace the Meta Knight fights in this run with Firebrand.

I said I'd do Firebrand next. Now it's time to do so.

Gargoyle's Quest

Theme: Emulating the plot of Gargoyle's Quest where Firebrand must return to and save the Ghoul Realm before the portal to it closes.



Round 1:
  • Opponent - Arthur
  • Stage - Whatever they'd pick for a Ghosts N Goblins Stage
  • Themed Boss - I normally try to avoid using characters and stages that aren't in the game. But given how well the idea of Firebrand meshes with Arthur, I'll make an exception here. Won't be using a Gargoyle's Quest stage in this route though.
Round 2:
  • Opponent - :ultsquirtle: Green Squirtle (Color 3)
  • Stage - Castle Siege
  • Themed Boss - Zundo Druer
Round 3:
  • Opponent - :ultdarksamus: White Dark Samus (Color 6)
  • Stage - Great Plateau Tower
  • Themed Boss - Four-Eyes
Round 4:
  • Opponent - :ultridley: Yellow Ridley (Color 7)
  • Stage - Hyrule Castle
  • Themed Boss - Bellzemos
Round 5:
  • Opponent - :ultbowser:White Bowser (Color 5)
  • Stage - Battlefield Mushroomy Kingdom
  • Themed Boss - Zakku Druzer
Round 6
  • Opponent - :ultganondorf: Default Ganondorf (Color 1)
  • Stage - Dracula's Castle
  • Themed Boss - Rushifell
Boss
  • Ganon
Boss Reason
  • Ganon best resembles Breager. The main antagonist of Gargoyle's Quest.

I thought of one for Kamek

Abducting the Stars

Theme: Fighting the characters who, as babies, were the Star Children in Yoshi's Island DS. Except for Bowser for obvious reasons.

NOTE: All Opponents will use their Default Color Scheme. Except for Wario who uses Color 2. Which is his default appearance in Mario games.

Round 1:

  • Opponent - :ultpeach: Peach
  • Stage - Peach's Castle

Round 2:

  • Opponent - :ultluigi: Luigi
  • Stage - Tortimer Island

Round 3:

  • Opponent - :ultmario: Mario
  • Stage - Yoshi's Island (Melee)

Round 4:

  • Opponent - :ultdk: Donkey Kong
  • Stage - Yoshi's Island

Round 5:

  • Opponent - :ultwario: Wario
  • Stage - Yoshi's Story

Round 6

  • Opponent - :ultyoshi: Yoshi
  • Stage - Super Happy Tree

Boss

  • Master Hand & Crazy Hand
Boss Reason

  • While not intentionally, Master Hand and Crazy Hand did play a part in abducting Trophies and Spirits in the Adventure Mode's of Brawl and Ultimate. Just like how Kamek plays a role in abducting the baby characters in the Yoshi's Island games.

Can I suggest some sings for the first 6 rounds?

Round 1: Ground Theme - Super Mario World
Round 2: Title / Ending - Super Mario World
Round 3: Super Mario World Medley
Round 4: Wildlands
Round 5: Bandit Valley
Round 6: Obstacle Course - Yoshi’s Island


You can add a song for each round if you want.

Urbosa got one of these at some point. How about the other chamions? One at a time though, and not in a row. I think I'll start with Revali.

A True Champion

Theme: Based on Revali pompously thinking he's better than Link, the idea here is Revali proving himself to be the best by fighting other characters that are a Champion of sorts.

NOTE: All Opponents will use their Default Color Scheme. Except for the opponent in Round 5 who uses Color 2.

Round 1:


  • Opponent - :ultlink: Link
  • Stage - Hyrule Castle
  • Champion of - Obviousness. And by that I mean this fight just represents Revali and Link's rivalry

Round 2:


  • Opponent - :ultfalcon: Captain Falcon
  • Stage - Mute City SNES
  • Champion of - The F-Zero Grand Prix

Round 3:


  • Opponent - :ultpokemontrainer: Pokemon Trainer
  • Stage - Kalos Pokemon League
  • Champion of - The Pokemon League

Round 4:


  • Opponent - :ultryu: Ryu
  • Stage - Suzaku Castle
  • Champion of - The World Warrior Tournament

Round 5:


  • Opponent - :ultike: Ike
  • Stage - Colisuem
  • Champion of - The People of Fire Emblems Radiant Era. He is the Radiant Hero of Legend after all.

Round 6


  • Opponent - :ultmetaknight: Meta Knight
  • Stage - Halberd
  • Champion of - The Universe. Galacta Knight was the strongest warrior in said universe, but then Meta Knight defeated him.

Boss


  • Rathalos
Boss Reason


  • Monster Hunter is home to fabled creatures that take legendary hunters to slay. Whether or not Rathalos is one of them I don't know and would honestly doubt, but it is the only Monster Hunter Boss in the game.

Did you know that Marvel vs. Capcom 2 has a main protagonist? Her name is Ruby Heart and she's an original character made exclusively for MvC2. That's the character whose route I'm doing today.

Pop Quiz:

If we were to get a Dragalia Lost character in Smash, who would it be?

The Answer:

Euden. Duh. But the dragonblood prince is far from the only good character in Nintendo's best mobile game.

Today it's time for a route for the Goddess herself, Ilia.

THAT BEING SAID

This route is going to cover most key events from Ilia's role within the story. Most of which were revealed in the limited time Forgotten Truths event.

So if you'd rather avoid spoilers, scroll down to the very end of this post and move to the next post to avoid them. It will say "end of post" in all caps to signify when you're safe.







You're warning starts here.












Tale of the Goddess

Theme: Recreating the battles from the Forgotten Truths event.


Round 1:


  • Opponents - :ultgunner: :ultgunner: :ultgunner: 3 Mii Gunners that wear the Bionic Helmet Headgear and the Special Forces Outfit
  • Stage - Midgar
  • Themed Battle - The soldiers who seek to capture Ilia

Round 2:


  • Opponents - :ultlink: Dark Link (Color 8), :ultdarksamus: Violet Dark Samus (Color 3), and Enderman
  • Stage - Windy Hill Zone
  • Themed Battle - The fiends that appear after Ilia first meets Zethia

Round 3:


  • Opponents - :ultbrawler::ultbrawler: 2 Mii Brawlers that wear the Bionic Helmet Headgear and the Bionic Suit Outfit, :ultrob: America Color R.O.B. (Color 1 in America, Color 2 in Japan)
  • Stage - Castle Siege
  • Themed Battle - The Combat Androids that Augus sends to burn the forest and provoke the Dragons.

Round 4:


  • Opponents - :ultridley: Green Ridley (Color 5), :ultbowser: White Bowser (Color 5), :ultkrool: Black King K. Rool (Color 6)
  • Stage - Omega Norfair
  • Themed Battle - Provoked Dragons that aim to destroy the capital. Ridley is Stribog, Bowser is Lindworm, and K. Rool is Juggernaut to be specific.

Round 5:


  • Opponent - :ultivysaur: Yellow Ivysaur (Color 5)
  • Stage - Omega Venom
  • Themed Battle - Zephyr

Round 6:


  • Opponent - :ultpalutena: Default Palutena (Color 1)
  • Stage - Skyloft
  • Themed Battle - Elysium. I know there's no actual fight against Elysium in Forgotten Truths. But there is a conflict between him and Ilia so I took a creative liberty.


Boss


  • Dracula

Boss Reason


  • Dracula is a scarily good match with Morsayati. Not only does Dragalia Lost's Main Antagonist look like a monster form Dracula would take, but Dracula's Origin as Mathias Cronqvist is very similar to Morsayati's Origin as Mordecai.

The protagonist of Xenoblade Chronicles 1 is Shulk.

The protagonist of Xenoblade Chronicles X is...........well people say it's the player created avatar but is that actually true? I hear from some people who, unlike me, have played X that your avatar is just along for the ride, and that in terms of story events Elma is honestly more of a protagonist. Elma's the X character people ask for in regards to Smash either way though. So meh.

And the protagonist of Xenoblade Chronicles 2 is Rex.

That's all 3 Xenoblade games. So that means the series has 3 main protagonists right?

Wrong.

Torna the Golden Country may be within the same universe and story as Xenoblade Chronicles 2, and in of itself is a DLC expansion to that game (though it did get a separate release version) but it does have a different protagonist in the form of Lora. And that's the route I'll be doing today.

The Paragons Knight

Theme: Key Battles in Torna: The Golden Country

Round 1:

  • Opponent - :ultrob: Blue R.O.B. (Color 5)
  • Stage - Brinstar
  • Themed Battle - Malos' Artifice

Round 2:

  • Opponent - Rex
  • Stage - Omega Brinstar Depths
  • Themed Battle - Addam and Mythra
NOTE: Rex isn't playable in Ultimate as of this moment, but given that Golden Country is an expansion to Xenoblade 2, I'm fairly confident that if Lora does get in, Rex will already be there. I try to avoid using characters that aren't in the game yet in these routes, but I see enough reason to make an exception with this one.

Round 3:

  • Opponent - :ultrichter: Purple Richter (Color 3)
  • Stage - Omega Gaur Plain
  • Themed Battle - Brighid

Round 4:

  • Opponent - :ultwario: Blue, Green, Pink-ish Wario (Color 7)
  • Stage - Battlefield Distant Planet
  • Themed Battle - Gort

Round 5:

  • Opponents - :ultcharizard:Default Charizard (Color 1), :ultpiranha: Default Piranha Plant (Color 1), :ultdk:Default Donkey Kong (Color 1)
  • Stage - Gerudo Valley
  • Themed Battle - Strong Monsters in the Desert on the way to the Tornan Capital

Round 6:

  • Opponent - :ultshulk: Dunban Colored Shulk (Color 3)
  • Stage - Skyloft
  • Themed Battle - Malos


Boss

  • Rathalos

Boss Reason

Rathalos best resembles Gort's Blade Eater Form

Basically, the avatar (Cross) is the perspective character, but Elma drives the plot and has surpassed them in other appearances anyways. It's quite telling that she takes center role in the 10th anniversary artwork and is the sole XCX character in the XC2 DLC.

It doesn't seem so cut and dry. Two examples that come to mind are the Sherlock Holmes novels and short stories (which are generally told from Watson's perspective, but Sherlock is clearly the protagonist) and the anime/manga Fairy Tail (where Lucy is the viewpoint character, but Natsu is the one who gets the narrative focus, has personal connections to the main villains, etc.).

...I honestly didn't expect I'd ever use those two series as examples for the same thing. Regardless, Cross seems to fill the same role as Watson or Lucy, where they're a relatively normal person who is used to introduce the world and/or characters. (at least, in my limited experience with Xenoblade Chronicles X) It seems telling that Elma's generally used as the face of Xenoblade Chronicles X, whether it's in XC2 or in anniversary artwork.

At that point I just consider protagonist (viewpoint character) and main character (the central focus) separate terms.

There's 80% ~ 90% overlap but there are cases where it's distinct.

thats certainly seems like the best way to put it, and can think of few times this has happened

Anyway to stay on topic... here's one for the Crewmate from Among Us, who I envision as being one with the Impostor.
Classic Mode: Who is the Impostor?
All matches take place on the Skeld, in various formats. Once again, it’s all other spacemen (or characters from games with intergalactic elements, at least), but this time it’s an 8 player match that slowly shrinks more and more.
  1. Vs. Samus, Fox, Kirby, Captain Falcon, Olimar, Rosalina (Normal Skeld)
  2. Vs. Samus, Fox, Kirby, Captain Falcon, Olimar (Rosalina was not the Impostor.) (Hazardless Skeld)
  3. Vs. Samus, Fox, Kirby, Captain Falcon (Olimar was not the Impostor.) (Battlefield Skeld)
  4. Vs. Samus, Fox, Kirby (Captain Falcon was not the Impostor.) (Omega Skeld)
  5. Vs. Dark Samus w/ Fox (Kirby was not the Impostor.) (Hazardless Skeld)
  6. Changes based on if you picked Crewmate or Impostor. (Normal Skeld)
    1. If Crewmate: Vs. Impostor w/ Fox (Dark Samus was the Impostor.)
    2. If Impostor: Vs. Fox
  7. Bonus Game
  8. Marx
    1. Marx pretends to be an innocent creature but is actually somewhat monster-like. Or in other words, an Impostor of a sort.
    2. Another option is the Hands, as the Crewmates have disembodied hands.

So Crypt of the Necrodancer is not owned by Nintendo. But Octavo is from Cadence of Hyrule. Which features Zelda characters. So who owns the character of Octavo?

My guess is the owner of Crypt of the Necrodancer. Cadence of Hyrule is a Zelda Themed version of Crypt of the Necrodancer. As the "ft. The Legend of Zelda" part of the title makes clear.

But regardless of who owns Octavo, I'm going to do a route for him today. This will be another example of a character that I don't think would make it in until after a different character within the franchise. Firebrand I believe would come after Arthur, Lora I believe would come after Rex, and Octavo I believe would come after Cadence. So Cadence herself will be used in this route for that reason.

But unlike Arthur and Rex, I haven't done a Cadence route. A big part of why I haven't is because I think Paraster Paraster already did a great route for her earlier in this thread. So allow me to give my thanks to them for that.

On to Octavo's route.

So Crypt of the Necrodancer is not owned by Nintendo. But Octavo is from Cadence of Hyrule. Which features Zelda characters. So who owns the character of Octavo?

My guess is the owner of Crypt of the Necrodancer. Cadence of Hyrule is a Zelda Themed version of Crypt of the Necrodancer. As the "ft. The Legend of Zelda" part of the title makes clear.
i dunno, all 3 companies are listed as owning the copy right as it doesnt distinguish who owns what

You like digging in treasure troves? Well let's dig around in the Shovel Knight Treasure Trove and do a route for Plague Knight.

Supreme Smash Serum

Theme: In Plague of Shadows, Plague Knight seeks to craft the Ultimate Potion by collecting the Essences of Shovel Knight and the other bad guys. What is an essence? Well that's never 100% explained but apparently they're a manifestation of someone's strongest traits. Like Treasure Knight's Greed. So that's what we're focusing on today. Opponents who have a notable trait.

NOTE: All characters will have their default color palettes

Round 1:

  • Opponent - :ultlink: Link
  • Stage - Great Plateau Tower
  • Trait - Courageous

Round 2:

  • Opponent - :ultwario: Wario
  • Stage - Warioware Inc.
  • Trait - Greed

Round 3:

  • Opponent - :ultbowser: Bowser
  • Stage - Paper Mario
  • Trait - Persistance

Round 4:

  • Opponent - :ultlucas: Lucas
  • Stage - New Pork City
  • Trait - Shy

Round 5:

  • Opponent - :ultjoker: Joker
  • Stage - Mementos
  • Trait - Charisma

Round 6:

  • Opponent - :ultrobin: Robin
  • Stage - Arena Ferox
  • Trait - Resourcefulness


Boss

  • Dracula

Boss Reason

  • Dracula emulates the Enchantress the best. Also covers the trait of "Evil".

Meanwhile, in a parallel universe where Smash isn't video games only...

Scrooge McDuck (DuckTales): The Richest Duck In The World!
Alternate between fighters who are very rich (or at least have the ability to become rich).

Round 1: :ultluigi: on Luigi's Mansion (Main Theme - Luigi's Mansion (Brawl))
  • Can collect up to 142,390,000 G in the first game.
Round 2: :ultmario: :ultpeach: on Golden Plains (Ground Theme - New Super Mario Bros. 2)
  • Should be self-explanatory based on the stage. Also, one's royalty.
Round 3: :ultken: on Suzaku Castle (Ken Stage)
  • Apparently the Masters family is very rich.
Round 4: :ultfox: :ultfalco: on Corneria (Main Theme - Star Fox 64 (Brawl))
  • "Whaaaat?!" - General Pepper
Round 5: :ultolimar: :ultolimar: (blue) on Garden of Hope (World Map - Pikmin 2)
  • Maybe not "becoming rich," but Pikmin 2 is all about collecting money via mysterious treasures to pay off a debt.
Round 6: :ultwario: on WarioWare (Ruins - Wario Land: Shake It!)
  • Money is pretty much his entire character.
Final Round: Dracula (Dance of Gold)
  • He's a count, right?

I think it's about time I did one of these for a Pokemon. I'll pick Espeon for this one.

The Future is Now

Theme: Based on Espeon's Psychic Typing and occasional descriptions of having precognition, Espeon will fight characters who are playable now, but weren't playable in previous titles despite being considered.

NOTE: All characters will have their default color palettes

Round 1:

  • Opponent - :ultbowser:Bowser
  • Stage - Mushroom Kingdom

Round 2:

  • Opponent - :ultmarth:Marth
  • Stage - Temple

Round 3:

  • Opponent - :ultsnake:Snake
  • Stage - Shadow Moses Island

Round 4:

  • Opponent - :ultpacman:Pac-Man
  • Stage - Pac-Land

Round 5:

  • Opponent - :ultchrom:Chrom
  • Stage - Arena Ferox

Round 6:

  • Opponent - :ultridley:Ridley
  • Stage - Norfair


Boss

  • Master Hand and Crazy Hand
Boss Reason

  • Given this routes theme of fighting Smash characters who made it in after being passed on when considered for previous titles, the classic Smash Bros. Boss just made sense.

Here's one for Orbeetle, the evolved regional bug Pokemon of Galar, from Sword and Shield

Hidden in Plain Sight
(Fighters who are not as they might seem, as Orbeetle is an alien that resembles a ladybug)

  1. Vs. :ultsheik:on Temple (Ocarina of Time Medley) (Zelda)
  2. Vs. :ultcorrin: on Coliseum (Music: Lost in Thoughts All Alone) (Is a dragon, also family alliance)
  3. Vs. :ultmetaknight:on Halberd (Music: Staff Credits - Kirby's Dream Land) (Is a blue Kirby)
  4. Vs. :ultshulk: on Gaur Plain (Music: You Will Know Our Names) (absolutely overpowered)

  6. Bonus Stage
  7. Boss: Marx (Music: Battle! Macro Cosmos Rose) (Cutesy puffball? Naw. Rose also fits.)

I said I'd do a route for each BotW champion other than Urbosa (mainly because Perkilator Perkilator already did a good Urbosa route) but so far I've only done Revali. It's been a little bit since I did so let's do Mipha's route now.

Zora Princess

Theme: Fighting Opponents who emulate bosses that have terrorized Zora's across multiple Zelda games. Not just Breath of the Wild. Due to that, almost every stage will be a Water Stage of some sort. There will be a couple of exceptions to that however. Which is why I'm going to add the reasons for each chosen stage this time. And since I've decided to go the extra mile for that, I'll go another extra mile and include a music track for each round this time.

Round 1:

  • Opponent - :ultpiranha: Pink Piranha Plant (Color 4)
  • Themed Boss - Barinade
  • Stage - Fountain of Dreams
  • Stage Reason - Barinade is the boss of Jabu Jabu's Belly. And you find Jabu Jabu in Zora's Fountain in Ocarina of Time.
  • Music Track - Hyrule Field Theme (Remix)

Round 2:

  • Opponent - :ultkrool: Maroon King K. Rool (Color 7)
  • Themed Boss - Gyorg
  • Stage - Great Bay
  • Stage Reason - Great Bay is where the Zora's that Gyorg terrorizes in Majora's Mask live. And Gyorg himself is the boss of the Great Bay Temple.
  • Music Track - Termina Field (Remix)

Round 3:

  • Opponent - :ultinklingboy: Blue Inkling (Color 2)
  • Themed Boss - Plasmarine
  • Stage - Pirate Ship
  • Stage Reason - While not appearing until after you save the Zora's in Oracle of Ages, there is still a pirate ship that needs to be explored to beat the game. Plus the Pirate Ship stage is sailing on the sea. And to get to the Zora's in Oracle of Ages, you have to travel through the sea.
  • Music Track - Tal Tal Heights

Round 4:

  • Opponent - :ultdarksamus: Brown Dark Samus (Color 4)
  • Themed Boss - Jalhalla
  • Stage - Temple
  • Stage Reason - The Sage of Earth who was killed in Wind Waker to rob the Master Sword of it's power was a Zora. The Sage of Earth resided in the Earth Temple, where Jalhalla is also the boss. Temple is the best emulation of that location.
  • Music Track - Molgera

Round 5:

  • Opponent - :ultridley: Default Ridley (Color 1)
  • Themed Boss - Twilit Bloat
  • Stage - Summit
  • Stage Reason - The Twilit Bloat may be a mini-boss, but it still holds the last tear of light needed to save Zora's Domain from it's curse. And since said curse froze it over Summit is the best bet.
  • Music Track - Midna's Lament

Round 6:

  • Opponent - :ultganondorf: Violet Ganondorf (Color 2)
  • Themed Boss - Waterblight Ganon
  • Stage - Delfino Plaza
  • Stage Reason - Out of what was left, Delfino Plaza emulated Zora's Domain the best.
  • Music Track - Calamity Ganon Battle (Second Form)


Boss

  • Ganon
Boss Music Track

Boss Reason

  • Ganon is the leader/creator of almost all of the bosses who have terrorized the Zora's in the Zelda series. Barinade was the result of a curse Ganon inflicted on Jabu Jabu, Veran cursed the seas where the Zora's reside in Oracle of Ages but she works for Ganon, Zant cursed Zora's Domain in Twilight Princess but he works for Ganon. Gyorg is the only boss emulated in this route who doesn't fall under Ganon's command.
