:ultfalcon: doesn’t usually swear much, usually only saying “damn”, “hell” or “crap” in somewhat tense situations. However, if anyone tries to hurt anyone he cares deeply about, hoo boy, he will not hold back with the obscenities and insults at the offending party. It’s not often that he gets to that point, however, and it really takes a lot to push him there.
Funny, I have this same exact headcanon, lol.

That also reminds me, I wonder how much the other Smashers would curse..... Bye, I'm making a list now.

  • "The Hero" is literally The Hero's name. Like "The Cheat" in Homestar Runner. Discredited.
  • :ultduckhunt: has been wanting Banjo to join specifically so he could pull that prank.
  • Banjo-Kazooie's invitation letter is very old; it was intended for Melee. It just kept barely slipping out of their grasp. That's what they've been doing all this time that they haven't shown up in any games—chasing it.
    • Yooka-Laylee caught it not too long ago, mistakenly thinking it was for themselves. Their sequel had just been announced, after all, and the writing addressing two people seemed to match them. :ultmario: had to politely turn them down at the door... though their bringing the letter to him was how Banjo was finally able to get his hands on it. They at least got really good tickets to watch the tournament for free for helping out with that.

:ultwiifittrainer: is actually in the same universe than :ultlittlemac: and after Sm4sh, she became his second trainer and get along very well with Doc Louis.
:ultlittlemac: became friend with :ultryu: and :ultken:, the three of them training each other. He also adopts :ultincineroar: and then shares a strong relationship. He also tries to be friend with the FE cast and starts to have a good relationship with :ultjoker:, who thinks he might be a really good Phantom Thieves. Because of their friendship, :ultlittlemac: started to learn Japanese while :ultjoker:'s English became better.

:ultsnake: and :ultjoker: also get along well. The two discussed about how the society needs to be changed, and now they learn a little bit from each other.
:ultmewtwo: shares a bound with :ultsnake: because of their clone status. He also knows that Snake treats his dogs very well. Because of that, Mewtwo started to reconsider his human hatred.

-:ultgreninja: and :ultincineroar: are intense rivals, both in combat and everyday life. Greninja's calm and "keep to self" personality and Incineroar's fiery and bodacious personality, causing them to often bicker like an old married couple. However, they do sincerely care for each and consider the other an important friend. They both believe this to be a massive secret, but everyone can tell.
-:ultsimon: and :ultrichter: have a buddy cop dynamic, with Simon being the veteran who is 3 days from retiring and Richter being the young hotshot who wants to prove himself. Simon teaches Richter the importance of hard work and helps him improve his existing techniques, while Richter teaches Simon to be more adaptable to a situation and the importance in using one's tools in a creative way.
-:ultchrom:,:ultrobin:, and :ultlucina: have the strongest friendship among anyone in the roster. There's not a moment that goes by where the three aren't seen among each other. Rumours of Robin and Lucina dating are constantly spread among the roster, much to Chrom's chagrin. Despite trying to reaffirm Chrom that he is not dating his daughter, Chrom tries to set him up with anyone else just to be safe and take him off the market. Chrom has strictly forbid Lucins from dating numerous times, but deep down knows it won't work. One time, he went to :ultbowser: for parenting advice, who gave the surprisingly good advice that parenting is the balance between being an authority and being a friend. He tries this new philosophy by taking a more lax and personal parenting style, which just creeps Lucina out as she feels he's trying too hard.
-The :ulthero:s don't actually hang out all that often. They have a large amount of respect for each other and are roommates, but just don't naturally interact outside their home. The Luminary is a bookworm who enjoys natural learning and can often be found in the library. He has joined a book club with :ultzelda:, :ultrosalina:, :ultshulk:, :ultrobin:, and :ultjoker:. Eight is a social butterfly who naturally likes to make friends and has a quirky sense of humour. In particular, he has recently bonded with :ultpokemontrainer: over their shared interest in training monsters for battle. Solo is an artsy-fartsy sort of guy with a natural draw towards classical music and fine arts. A few of the Smashers have tried to cultivate a close relationship with him, but he's hesitant to respond in kind due to what happened to his village. Erdrick is an overly serious guy who takes extreme pride in his fighting talents. However, this persona has been broken a few times by humour, but he immediately tries to put it back up. He really respects :ultike: and :ultcloud: due to their massive strength and unique swordplay. He also gets along well with :ultryu: and :ultlittlemac:, as they all enjoy the level of dedication they put into their training.
-Every Friday, the villains run card games amongst themselves. :ultkingdedede: organizes the thing, supplies the beer, and tries to keep the peace among the large personalities. :ultbowser: is one of the most friendly and respected members of the game, but he has a bad habit of having little self control when it comes to the alcohol. :ultbowserjr: constantly tries to get in, and the other members aren't opposed, but Bowser's not exactly comfortable with the idea yet. :ultkrool: is always telling amusing stories and keeping the party alive, but can often get aggressive and start fights due to his blunt personality and lack of filter. :ultganondorf: is very talented and thusly full of himself, often casually bragging and congratulating himself. However, he doesn't drink due to cultural reasons, with this often being a teasing point among the group when he gets a little too narcissistic. :ultridley: secretly intimates the rest of the group, due to his openness towards sharing his various crimes. Ganondorf is the only one who will stand up to him. However, not inviting Ridley has been silently agreed upon to not be possible, as it just seems too strange to not have him there. :ultdarksamus: on the other hand was invited once, ate the cards, and was never invited again. :ultwolf: is often gloomy and pessimistic, only showing up for free alcohol and often subtly attacking the others with snarky remarks. However, everyone else believes he's just mocking them in good fun. :ultmewtwo: shows up only for the card games, staying silent the entire time and almost always winning due to his complex and advanced strategies. The others often try to bluff their way around him, but it never works. :ultincineroar: first showed up to enhance his heel persona and gain some respect among the rest of the roster, despite being terrified of then entire situation. However, he believes he's in too deep now, leading him to swallow his fear and show up anyway.

:ultbowser: refers to the Phantom Thieves of Hearts as the "Teen Cosplay Brigade." Upon seeing Banjo hanging out with Diddy and Dk, Bowser calls Banjo "the stupidest looking gorilla I've ever seen."

:ultgnw: and :ultpacman: are best pals. They like to talk about the good old days.

:ultjoker: wasn't actually invited. They stole their invitation from somebody else. :ultwario: knows this and didn't tell anyone because he approves of that kind of behavior.

:ultcloud: is very protective of :ultlucas:. He sympathizes with people that have lost love ones.

:ultpokemontrainer: has tried to catch each no human Smasher in a pokeball. In many cases he's succedded.

:ultmario:,:ultsonic:,:ultmegaman: and :ultpacman: are all part of a club where they often gloat about how they are icons and more well known then everyone else. :ultsimon: was made into an honorary member but is rarely present. Banjo as been invited and will join as soon as he arrives in town.

:ultmarth:,:ultike: and :ultmetaknight: all live in an old wanabego and travel around because they don’t have stable jobs to pay for a actual house. :ultroy: tried to get in but was forbidden access many times.

:ultsimon:,:ultrichter: and :ultsnake: have created a :ultluigi: protection group that as title says, protects :ultluigi: from any types of farces that could tarnish is reputation.

:ultlink: and :ultzelda: don’t have any hate on :ultganondorf:. In fact, they don’t even know him. :ultganondorf: often helps :ultzelda: with piano practices. :ultyounglink: and :ultsheik: on the other hand know and hate him. They try to kick him out of town but it never works.

After is friend Kraid commited suicide, :ultridley: became a psychologists so that no one else suffers the same fate. Every week he goes up to is friend’s grave to talk to him. He and :ultchrom: are good friends ever since the sm4sh days.

:ultvillager: Is the mayor of the town (guess I could call it smashtown?) Almost everyone is puzzled about why he even as the position but :ultisabelle: is there to assure them that he was the only one who asked for the job when the town was founded.

:ultrobin: and :ultlucina: both started a stable relationship together and :ultrobin: feels ready to propose to her but he feels like that’s to much for now. :ultjoker: tries to help him to overcome that fear with some notable advice.

:ultbayonetta: took custody of :ultjoker: after an unknown accident forced him to move into town. She scolded him after finding out he was dating multiple people at the same time.

:ultwolf: is the owner of a bar where :ultbowser:,:ultdarkpit:,:ultridley:,:ultwario:,:ultsamus:,:ultchrom: and :ultganondorf: often a large discussions about there terrible life decisions.

:ultyoshi: is innocent and did nothing wrong.

Once, the Duck Hunt Dog came back from a walk with fleas (he walks himself since he's that intelligent). Soon, the other non-human mammals were itching. They all had to get flea collars and the whole Smash Mansion had to be fumigated.

The various swordfighters on occasion like to try out each other's swords, to see what wielding them is like. Results include:
  • No one besides :ultmarth:, :ultlucina: and :ultchrom: can actually cut anything with the Falchion, since it's locked to their bloodline, and even then, not everyone can use it.
  • :ultike: has absolutely no problem swinging around :ultcloud:'s Buster Sword, even though he doesn't have any of stuff :ultcloud: uses to power himself up. :ultcloud: is partially impressed, and partially scared.
  • Almost everyone can use the Master Sword(s). :ultganondorf: can't because it literally burns him when he touches it, but he just powers through it.
  • :ultshulk: doesn't really want a part in any of this, and actively discourages others from trying the Monado. Some of the other swordfighters, like :ultchrom:, :ultrobin: and :ultlink: ignore his warning and try to use the Monado when he's not looking, and while they can activate it, it still goes just about as well as you might think.
  • The only one who can properly use the Monado is :ultkirby:, but only after he copied Shulk's ability. Otherwise, it goes as well for him as it does for others.
  • :ulttoonlink: has no problems using :ultmetaknight:'s Galaxia, on account of it being around the same size as his version of the Master Sword.
And unrelated to the above:

:ultrobin: occasionally likes to brag about how they should be allowed to use the power of Grima for their Final Smash, and how broken that would be. :ultshulk: always reacts to these claims with a "Oh sweet summer child" kinda expression.

When :ultcorrin: found out about :ultshulk:'s ability to see the future, they instantly began pestering him about coming back to Hoshido and Nohr with them, to help them resolve the conflict between the kingdoms with the least amount of deaths.

How is Banjo more an icon than Link, Pikachu and Yoshi ?

Every single video game ever made exists as its own "world." Each world is a part of a "Universe" which is all games from the same series. And each universe belongs to a "Realm" which is all games made by the same company. So, for example, "Super Mario 3D World" is a world in the "Mario" universe located in the "Nintendo" Realm.

Every Realm is protected by a Right Hand of creation, and attacked by a Left Hand of destruction. Master Hand is the right hand of Nintendo, and he created the Super Smash Bros. as a means of defense against Nintendo's left hand. Crazy Hand was supposed to be that left hand, but his mental disabilities caused him to forget his role and become buddies with Master Hand instead.

Each character in Smash is somebody from a world that Master Hand deemed worthy (or in some cases, such as :ultpiranha::ultwiifittrainer:and:ultisabelle:, somebody he grudgingly agreed to let Crazy choose). Since no entities can be removed from their worlds, Master Hand instead removes their Spirits, and places those inside of bodies he himself creates. Originally these were dolls, but he later transitioned to Trophies.

Since the characters are not in their actual bodies, Master hand can provide them with many skills and powers they don't usually possess, such as :ultness: being able to use PK Fire, :ultolimar: being able to pluck infinite Pikmin from anywhere at all, and :ultinkling: and :ultinklingboy: being able to survive in water, just to name a few examples.

Only those who have been to Smash know it exists. And Master Hand takes measures to make sure they don't spill the secret, because it could potentially be dangerous for the worlds to try and interconnect with each other. Assist Trophies are not the real versions of the characters they represent. They are only copies without spirits of their own.

The spirits in Ultimate are the actual spirits of these characters. Galeem's attack affected the entire Nintendo Realm, as well as areas of other Realms that got tied in when Master Hand called on the Spirits of people from those other Realms (:ultsnake::ultsonic::ultmegaman::ultpacman::ultryu::ultcloud::ultbayonetta::ultsimon::ultrichter::ultken::ultjoker::ulthero::ultbanjokazooie:).

The purpose of the Super Smash Bros. is to combat any kind of threat to the Nintendo Realm. The first threats were Subspace and the Master Core, which were both created by Dharkon. Galeem's attack later on was spurred by right hands from other realms who "saw the Smashers as a threat" (but truthfully, many were jealous of the great idea and others were angry that Master Hand had taken characters from their realms without asking).

Master Hand has refused some of Crazy Hand's character choices before. Most notably, Crazy was hoping to get James Bond from the "Goldeneye 007" world onto the team, but Master Hand refused.

Eight/Guv gets along with :ultsamus: and :ultlink: completely well to the point the three of them go on adventures together looking for treasures through the World of Light and Darkness while fighting evil forces.

-:ultken: wants to teach :ultluigi: how to make it far in life and rise from underdog status.
I really like this idea :ultken: probably relates to :ultluigi: as they both started out as basic colour swaps in their respective franchises.

:ultwiifittrainer:wasn't in Brawl as she was taking on the job of fixing :ultbowser:'s back problems

The only reason :ultdk: doesn't talk is he was fed up of people asking him to say 'Banana Slamma'

:ultpokemontrainer: once spent an entire afternoon trying to catch :ultyoshi: assuming he was a rare pokemon

:ultpeach: isn't the only one who gets kidnapped! :ultdaisy: Swears that she was the center of an adventure where :ultmario: and :ultluigi: went on 1h 44m quest to save her from :ultbowser: in 1993 but the three admintly claim no such thing ever happened.

:ultwario: hosts a party for the villains every year he claims it's so they can finally form a plan to rid them of the heroes but really it's just so he can pick their brains for new micro games in Warioware (of course without crediting them)

:ultkingdedede: is never invited and every time he tries hosts his own party to make them jealous but outside of his own minions only :ultkirby:, :ultness: and :ultluigi: ever show up

Bluster Kong is the creator of the world of trophies
The assist trophies are not real, but in fact holograms.
Wait so Tupac's an assist trophy?

My headcanon is that Samus and the DQ8 Hero both lead a team of explorers formed my the DQ8 party members and them.

They work both as bounty hunters in space and as treasure hunters.

Erdrick Arusu is an overall eager and curious person, seeing the world with a childlike wonder. Which leads to him being easily distracted.

Guv (Eight) is the kind of guy who, when he's at a party, skips the socializing and activities and goes straight to the chips and dip. He sometimes offers Munchie (the hamster in his pocket) some.

Solo acts like the "I don't care, whatever" guy much of the time, but has been known to laugh hysterically at funny things. and he tends to have a bit of an obnoxious laugh

:ultwiifittrainer: and :ultwiifittrainerm: are twins. Their names are Wilma (:ultwiifittrainer:) and Wilbur (:ultwiifittrainerm:) Fitzgerald.
:ultvillager: and :ultvillagerf: are cousins. Their names are Annie (:ultvillagerf:) and Carson (:ultvillager:).

:ultjoker: held a recruitment drive for more Phantom Thief members.
Only :ultsonic::ultlucina: & :ultridley: showed up.
:ultsonic: was a perfect fit but had to be convinced their thievery acts were for justice first. He admires Queen the most.
:ultlucina: was awkward at first but slowly got the hang of it. Ann & Ryuji remind her of Lissa & Owain.
:ultridley: couldn't be stealthy at all and was stealing things left and right, but proved so effective in battle there's now debate as to whether he should be allowed to stay on the team or not. Yusuke wants to paint his grotesque form someday.

Yoshi's eggs normally transforms his meals into baby Yoshis if giving time and incubation.

But the Smash council forbids that so he had to briefly alter his physiology thru narcotics. This explains his short tongue and reduced aiming skills :yoshi:

Probably said this headcanon before, if I did I don’t remember but

:ultken: isn’t a natural blonde - he bleaches his hair. (It probably is canon anyway as you can tell his eyebrows are a different color.)
The alternate option would be that he dyes only his eyebrows, which, come to think of it, I now accept as headcanon because it is hilarious to me.

That is actually canon.

Ken is 3/4th Japanese (so much for being the American Ryu, right?) and has dyed his hair since his early teens.

Well, it's canon for Capcom this week anyway. They tend to change and retcon things around all the time. There's about five different ways the Ryu vs Sagat fight at the end of Street Fighter went.
