I am pretty sure that it will work very successfully 😛

Middle School Stories: A Story


A Story
By Thedude3445
(Written in the summer after 8th grade, aka May 2009. This was supposed to be a big coming-of-age story where a guy would save the world and become a hero in a simple tale like the original Star Wars, but I just never finished it. It wasn’t very original anyway. But here it is:)
Chapter 1- Introduction
A simple introduction can make any tale even greater. In the land of Aminos, the people of the world were expected to be quick, strong, and intelligent warriors, forced to claw their way atop the social system to merely survive, or else be placed in the front lines of battle when the Aminos armies invade other lands. But very shortly after the battles, most of the lowest-class men are killed or captured, and the next-lowest becomes the next class to die off in a vicious cycle of perpetual war. The Aminos are considered, at least by most of the world, to be savage beats.
Another land, that of Eminus, has a race of men that are highly advanced, and are far too busy upgrading and evolving their technology and themselves to focus on any real conquest or siege. Too many of these people are so uncontent with all of like, looking only to the future, that they forget history. Most Eminus do not even stay in one place for very long, and move around like nomads. They are almost the exact opposite of the Aminos, and were surely a target for invasion by the barbarians.
That inevitably happened, and the two societies became locked in conflict for decades, neither side taking the upper hand due to the poor defenses and morale of the Emini, and the horrid technology of the Amino. After so many years had passed, the two became so close that they fused into one culture, and both were hi-tech societies and king-of-the-hill castes. One day, an event finally caused the corrupt war to finally end.
Chapter 2- A Hero is Born
In the city of Dredg, a young man be the name of Rene was riding a bus to the store when he passed by a TV store window with the news flashing on the monitors. An anchorlady was stating that the enemy, the Amino, were threatening to use nuclear warheads to attack the Emini border states that had so long been a place for combat. Rene became overcome with fear at the very thought of such devestation. Right after the report was an advertisement to “join the cause” and enlist in the Emini Army to protect the country from the wretched Amino. So he went, but on the way, he was stopped by a towering man with along white beard.
He spoke. “You. You wish to sign on to your death, and do it with happiness? This is the problem with youth. Do you even know what war is really like? It is savage and gruesome, for all battles are many peoples’ final hours on this world. The Emini are not fighting the Amino for any reason any longer. The whole war has brought naught but the government’s control of nearly everything. You must come with me, and I will show you what you must do.”
Rene followed the old man, known to most as Baggath, into a cave, where many were gatherewd. It was a conference of some sort.
A general called Cini debriefed the gathering, saying, “Men, we know why we are here.”

Middle School Story: A Speech


A Speech
By Thedude3445
NOTE: This was a short story written in the first half of 2009, back when I was in 8th grade. It was a school assignment; I had to write a paragraph containing the weekly vocabulary words. Naturally, I went overboard and it ended up being quite long.
Bang.
The car ran into a pothole as it cruised through the road. The third one in five minutes. They were headed into a very obscure part of town, he could tell.
Air Force One. It zoomed overhead as the President was supposed to be landing. But, of course, Mr. Barr, in actuality, rode in a shoddy 1973 Corvette. The Secret Service seemed almost completely paranoid these days, as a single terrorist threat would provoke them to extreme measures.
New York City. As the corvette turned into one of the numerous slums across the metropolis, Barr wondered. How could such vagrants meander into a perilous alley as this? It was no wonder that he himself won the election. These uniformed miscreants inundated into the polls and voted for the most sprightly-looking man on ballot, not caring about the issues that actually mattered.
Not that politics mattered much anymore. The malign Congress was getting more surly and controlling every week!
Ah well, President Barr thought. He was almost to the Trade Center, where the obstreperous crowd would pretend to listen to his tirade about the large amount of bogus money.
“Mr. President,” spoke the driver suddenly, breaking all silence in the car. “Please step out.” The car came to a halt, and he realized that the advent was no trade center, but a musty warehouse. The apex of the President’s life would end here, he knew. Several men in black suits, ex-Secret Service agents, came out of the warehouse, surrounded him, and shot him down. Shocked to the point of being unable to speak, Bob Barr could only listen to the treacherous driver.
“Okay men,” the traitor stated. “We’ll cover him up, and then burn this crappy building.” He then turned to the bleeding President. “Oh, and Mr. President: I am truly sorry, but your sacrifice was necessary. We couldn’t have prevented the Congress from taking over the government without it!”
“Wh…what…?” Barr tried to say as he was slowly dying.
“Well, we’ll have to take over the government ourselves, but the Congress will have to pay for ordering your assassination!” He pulled out a gun. “And with that, I bid you adieu.”
Bang.

Middle School Stories: Thrill of the Hunt


Thrill of the Hunt
By Thedude3445
I actually was going to write different short stories starring different characters in this war, including the messenger that is in this story, to go in an anthology book with my friend, but for some reason we didn’t do it. I think it was a disagreement about the map; I wanted a slightly modified Europe while he wanted a full-on fantasy map, I guess.

So here I was, stuck in between a Seven Nation Army warlord and a Legendary Monster. Hmph. Couldn’t help but try and look back on the entire predicament before what could have become my last fight, and see what went wrong…
During the Great Wars of the Twelve Nation Campaign, in which the Seven Nation Army clashed and conquered five other nations, then attempted to destroy the rest, my home was attacked. Now, I had not lived in any of the campaign targets, but in Scandinavia, which was far to the north of the War. In fact, the Kingdom of Holy Rome was the prosecutor. Its militia was raiding our land for supplies, in fear that they would be the next target of the Seven Nation Army.
Of course, as the skilled fighter that I am, no legion of horsemen would have attacked my village and returned back to Holy Rome. It just so happened that the South Scandinavian Army was recruiting young privates such as me to become fierce warriors. I arrived back at home only to find the entire village engulfed in smoldering flames. Older men who had not been able to join the Army were forced to fend off the Romans while our group was gone.
Not a single damned man was alive! Those accursed Romans even dared do even the most despicable thing possible; they kidnapped all of the young women away into slavery, including my older sister! From that moment on, I vowed to crush the raiders and rescue her. That’s where things began…
Captain Forde handed a letter to a cloaked man.
“Godspeed,” said me leader. “Deliver this to the king!
“Yes, milord,” replied the mysterious man. “It shall be done or I will not survive.”
Whoever he was, he climbed onto a dull gray steed and hoisted off deep into the dark forest. Turning back towards our warm campfire, I could still only think about vengeance. I wasn’t alone, as misery indeed loves company. At least thirty other men from nearby villages joined this brigade and also wanted Holy Rome to pay the ultimate price. Fordo, one of the only ones not out for blood, was forced to head into the south and attack, or risk mutiny.
Fortunately, unlike in the Scandinavian Navy, the Army was much looser. Operations such as these were actually mildly common. Our local Lord even supplied the brigade with new horses and weapons. It wasn’t nearly enough to combat an entire legion, but tried we did.
“Sir!” interrupted a solider suddenly, running to camp from far away. He looked exhausted, and had to catch his breath before continuing. Finally, he said, “Sir. The 42nd Holy Legion has been alerted to our prescience!”
Captain Fordo was too shocked at first to respond to this revelation, but got a hold of him to reply.
“Sir Orthodox,” Fordo commanded.”Rally your troops. We’re going to battle. Now!”
“Sir! Art thou insane?!” questioned back the trooper, or Sir Orthodox. “At least ninety hundred and one soldiers make up this legion! Holy Rome would crush us!”
Clearly undaunted by the numbers was the brigade captain. “That’s the plan,” said he, already on his shining white horse, glowing brightly against the black of the night. Orthodox reluctantly accepted his fellow captain’s decision, running off to alert his own forces. All seventy of us immediately got up and suited up. We took off with him.
***
The night barely passed before the enemy sighting became a thing of the past. A memory. We were no longer thinking about ourselves, or about survival; just about war and revenge. The Scandinavian Andy Raid Brigade finally attacked the 42nd Holy Legion, and I was on the front lines.
I was merely equipped with a simple swordreaver, so taking my basic axe and slaying the enemy myrmidons was my task. The weapon was tightly gripped in my hands. My eyes glanced around and found a group of targets. Blood drops flew around me. War was starting, but I could only think about my sister, and the pain she was going through. While I was distracted, a flaming arrow flew past me, singing my hair. I swung wildly, reacting to it, and struck down a swordsman on accident.
My first kill.
During this battle, it seemed like weaker soldiers were almost magnetically attracted to me, always attempting to kill me. Gladly I took this curse, though, because, I thought, at least it was better than Captain Fordo and the other commanders that had to duel with actual generals. Only one tough opponent lied in my way; a single knight. Since he was using a lance, I had to veer away or risk a challenging fight that could cost my sister’s life! Oh no… Why did I keep thinking of her? I had to think about the fight! But it was too late for that. The Knight charged at me and I had to make a dive to avoid him.
I hit the ground, and went out cold for a few moments. Once I regained consciousness, I sprang back to my feet, ready to resume fighting-
HEY! I thought. Where’s my weapon? I had just realized that, in my jump, I had dropped my swordreaver! It had most likely fallen into another part of the open field, and another soldier may very well have been using it by then. It was all over for me; at least that’s what I thought. The Knight turned his head and looked at me, throwing his lance. But it went far above my head, and next thing I knew, a man screamed out from behind me and I heard a loud thump on the ground.
Turning around, I saw what it was; a gigantic man who nearly chopped my head off with his axe. Fear swept over me. How could I have been so clumsy? How many more enemies like this were preparing to ambush me in the midst of this anarchy? Once again, I let my feelings get a hold of me, and my fighting suffered. The knight, apparently an ally, was furiously sweeping across his range of attack while keeping the Romans away from me. At least a dozen lay dead on the grass after just one minute.
I picked up a sword from one of these miscreants and easily decapitated nearby archer. Good thing too, because his bow was aimed right at Captain Fordo, who was still in a deadlocked battle with the other warlords. The still unknown armored man struck an axman in the heart and paced towards one of the only trees on enemy ground. An archer used a crossbow uselessly against my superb blocking skill, but the weak sword that I was wielding snapped against the arrows. A strong kick knocked him out, and onto the ground. I took his crossbow and shot at my captain’s inconveniences… to absolutely no avail. All that I accomplished by doing that was that they now noticed me! Three of them continued to strife with Fordo, but the other six turned in pursuit of the knight and me. Both of us knew our ultimate fates, and braced for eternity.
That is, until a giant tree came falling downwards and crashed on top of them, killing all of them. Silence ensued for a long moment between both sides of the conflict. Suddenly, hundreds of Holy Roman soldiers rampaged towards us. Luckily, almost too coincidentally, arrows surged out from atop the small bluff nearby and purged the enemy forces almost completely. Waves more were shot out and showered the remaining bloodthirsty fighters, quenching them with a river and washing them down the drain.
Out of the trees appeared dozens of hidden snipers, which I quickly recognized as from our own 1st Legion Archer brigade. They were the most elite guerilla soldiers of our day. I originally enlisted in it, but was hastily rejected and sent into my current group. Their captain, Canderous, was a harsh man and only accepted the absolute best. Actually, it seemed that he wasn’t even present. The man I assumed was their leader shouted at his men and they began picking off any Holy Roman stragglers. Before the day was up, the 42nd Holy Legion was in full retreat.
***
The combined force of the most brave soldiers and elite archers was probably enough to continue the assault of the enemy legion back to their base. I knew that my sister was at the back lines of the defense, and so did my comrades. We did not rest, and we did not stop. As we collided with the remaining Holy Romans, we almost barbarically clobbered every single on of them.
Eventually we did rescue all of the women that were kidnapped. Once I saw my sister, I ran up to her and we passionately embraced for what felt like eternity- she was finally back! But I could not stay with her long, as we not only defeated the 42nd Legion, but we went on to siege the entire kingdom of Holy Rome and eventually take it over in the name of Scandinavia. Fordo became the head general for the entire army, and we faced off against the Seven Nations Army. And here I am, right now, facing against a legendary monster and a Seven Nations Army warlord. What will I do about them? I don’t know yet, but I’m going to make it back to my new home and see my sister again, and I’m not going to do it until the Seven Nations Army is gone for good!

My Dream Super Smash Bros. 4 Roster V2.0 (UPDATED 6-27) (UPDATED 7-1-12)


Thedude3445′s Dream SSB4 Roster V2.0
* Unlockable
+New Character
Plus their movesets and final smashes, well for most characters. I’m partial to transformations for final smashes, albeit non-invincible ones. I would really like to see a mode where you can permenantly play as each of the transformations in a battle, so it could be like Giga Bowser vs. Super Sonic vs. Fierce Diety Link.
All villains are unlockable because that would be awesome; unlocking a character after you defeat them in an epic boss battle.
68 characters, 33 newcomers, 35 returning. 4 transformation characters also. Originally 69 characters with 37 newcomers and 32 returning.
(this is actually slightly less than I was shooting for; 75 characters. But around there is fine. Remember that the iDensity Discs that the Wii U uses are 25GB, and that’s only single-layered; Brawl did double layer on the Wii discs, so SSB4 could do that on here too if it wants.)

Mario Series—-
Mario– Duh.
His moveset is the exact same as in Brawl.
Final Smash- transforming into full-on Fire Mario. Like the final sprites in this sprite sheet: http://www.mfgg.net/index.php?act=resdb&param=03&c=1&id=5059 .
Luigi*- Duh. Unlockable because Luigi’s always an unlockable for some reason.
Luigi’s moveset is the same, except his down-B is the vacuum, which pulls enemies into his range and immobilizes them so he can pummel them.
Same Final smash… whatever it was….
Peach– She gets in once again.
Her moveset should be close to the same. I would like to see a Super Princess Peach move, using all of her “emotion powers”, but it’s not necessary.
Final Smash- Shadow Queen dangit! This would be completely amazing and completely fitting!
Bowser*- Why should we be able to play as a major villain from the start anyway?
Moeveset should be the same.
Final Smash- Giga Bowser.
+Geno*- He was one of the most-requested fighters for Brawl, and he will most likely be this time around as well. Geno would probably only be in if Sqeenix got some reps, though, IMO.
Moveset:
The smash moves would be short arm cannon punches, like Olimar’s short Pikmin throws compared to his Side B throw.
Up B- ???
B- Arm cannon. The hand will shoot out and then come straight back like a boomerang. Can charge it to make the attack’s length longer. It’s really fast, like 2 seconds, but Geno can’t jump while his arm is loose.
Side B- ???
Down B- ???
Final Smash: Turns everyone into the scarecrows that were status effects from SMRPG for 10-15 seconds. They have no recoil but they also can’t move and take double damage, so he can deal massive damage (by hitting their weak points for it).

+Paper Mario*- He is different enough from regular Mario to be his own character.
His smash moves would be hammer swings.
Up B- Folds into a paper airplane to glide. It’s really hard to control but it’s very effective. Does damage when it hits someone, and he can unfold himself when B is pressed again.
B- Hammer throw
Side B- He twists himself up and then does a spin dash attack.
Down B- Does the ground pound from the original.
No idea about the final smash o.o
+Bowser Jr./Shadow Mario*- He’s appeared in every main Mario game since Sunshine, and nearly every spinoff, so he should definitely be in the next Smash.
As Bowser Jr.
A smashes are mostly the same as Bowser’s, but weaker of course. Some of his smashes use the paintbrush.
Up B- The shell spin like Bowser’s Up B.
B- Fireball. It flies straight, like Bowser’s fireballs in the original Super Mario Bros. Charge the move to create a longer fireball.
Side B- He slashes, like Bowser’s Side B, but he slashes several times in quick succession, but with less damage per slash.
Down B- transform into Shadow Mario.
As Shadow Mario
A Smashes are Mario’s, but with a paintbrush that makes his range longer.
Up B- Mario’s, but with the paintbrush.
B- Muck fireball: bounces like Mario’s, and when it hits the ground, it causes the ground to be slippery like ice.
Side B- A charge paintbrush slash. The longer the charge, the more times he slashes.
Down B- transform into Bowser Jr.
Final Smash- He summons an Airship that hovers above the stage that will shoot cannonballs. Koopatrolls and other enemies will jump down and attack.
Donkey Kong Series—–
DK- duh.
Same Moveset once again,
Final Smash- Giga Donkey Kong; DK needs a Giga form too D=
Diddy– duh.
Same moveset, same final smash.
+K. Rool*- One of the biggest requests for Brawl once again, and also one of the best villains in Nintendo.
Smash moves will vary using moves from all 3 of his forms: K. Rool, Captain K. Rool, and K. Roolenstein.
Up B- Belly flop/jump.
B- Fires that giant gun.
Side B- boxing glove uppercut.
Down B- Summons a Kremling to attack for 3-4 seconds.
no idea about his final smash o.o
Yoshi/Wario Series—–
Yoshi– duh. Same moveset and final smash, but not invincible.
Wario*- duh. Same moveset and Final Smash, but not invincible.
+Waluigi*- The best joke character ever.
A smashes are like the other Plumbers’, but he also has his tennis racket to use.
Up B- jump/flail. Even sillier than Luigi’s.
B- Charges forward, chomping his teeth in hopes of biting other players. You can charge this move so that he can run longer…. And bite harder I guess?
Side B- Does the rocket that Luigi does, but in a much sillier fashion.
Down B- Claps his hands together. It creates a really small shockwave that deals damage, but foes can also get caught in the clap and get flattened like a cartoon character. It immobilizes the enemy for quite a few seconds.
Final Smash How about Super Waluigi, like Wario’s? But really terrible; he’s so fast he’s almost impossible to control. He also wears and outfit reminiscent of the Village People policeman; the totally gay one. 😛
Zelda Series——
Link– Skyward Sword Style.
Same moveset, Final Smash: Fierce Diety Link FTW!
Zelda/Shiek*- Same everything.
But what about having to unlock Shiek? That would be interesting. Otherwise Zelda’s Down B wouldn’t do anything.
Gannondorf*- Severely de-cloned.
He can pull out his sword for some A smashes.
Up B- He crouches and then jumps up, lookin’ all evil and such. The crouch can charge for a higher jump/stronger attack. If he hits an enemy it does heavy electric damage.
B- Warlock punch, but he slashes with his sword instead of punching. Still does fire damage.
Side B- Same move.
Down B- stomps. It creates a large shockwave of purple fire.
Another potential Down B- He kicks the ground and a ball of white energy, like the one from his final boss fight in Ocarina of Time, comes up and he shoots it forward. Players can counter it back at him to do double damage, but it’s hard to do.
Final Smash- Ganon as a transformation, not an attack like in Brawl.
+Imp Minda-Wolf Link/Twilight Princess Midna*- One of the most popular Zelda characters in a long, long, time. Just go to Deviantart and you’ll see. She’s even the Trope Image for video game Dark Horse Ensembles on TVTropes.
As an Imp/Wolf
A smashes are all Wolf Link attacks.
Up B- Midna’s arm hand thing reaches upwards. If it grabs a Smasher, it acts just like a regular grapple attack (aka Z).
B- Midna’s arm hand thing punches really hard.
Side B- ???
Down B- Transforms into Twilight Princess Midna.
As Twilight Princess Midna
Her A smashes are a lot like Zelda’s, but more combat-y and less magic-y.
Up B- ???
B- ???
Side B- ???
Down B- Transforms into Imp Midna/Wolf Link.
Final Smash: transform into that giant battle spider thing!
+The villain from Skyward Sword*
I can already tell that he’s going to be a character worth remembering for years to come. Probably.

(Retrospective: Still haven’t played Skyward Sword so I can’t judge this)
Metroid Series——-
Samus/ZSS– Same everything.
+Ridley*- He is NOT too large; he can be resized. He’s only about twice as large as Samus in the original Metroid and in the Melee opening cutscene; that’s almost small enough. He’s still the largest character by far, however, and also pretty slow.
Can jump 4 times before needing to use Up B.
A Smash- Lots of Claw slashes. With his Side Smash, he chomps at foes.
Up B- flaps his wings really fast. He doesn’t really get much vertical motion with this attack, but if you time it right he can start gliding.
B- ~He whips his tail back and forth~ Will continue to do it as long as you hold B.
Side B- That fly-spin thing that he does as a boss in Brawl. It’s basically Meta-Knight’s without the tornado or sword. If he comes in contact with someone, he will grab the person, stop, and throw them on the ground.
Down B- Sort of like Dedede’s Down B jump, except shorter and more attack-based.
Final Smash- Meta Ridley? Robo-Ridley? That Ridley from Metroid Fusion? Any of them would work.
This list was predictable because Metroid has so few characters lol.

F-Zero Series——-

Captain Falcon*- of course. Back and better than ever.
Same moveset. Buff the Falcon Punch though! It was severely lacking in power in Brawl!
Final Smash: Doing a version of the Falcon Punch from the anime (www.youtube.com/watch?v=FFtw7qW7Vcw); he punches his target, pausing the action, but then it goes back to the gameplay and a giant beam of energy shoots out above and below him (like how the galaxy is exploding in the anime), damaging anyone above/below him.
+Black Shadow*- Because he is the best villain in F-Zero. Suck it Zoda! Also suck it weird villain guy from GX. You sucked too. The only thing that sucks about Black Shadow is his generic name.
He takes some of Gannondorf’s spot as the slow Captain Falcon, though still not a clone. Because clones suck just as much as Zoda and weird villain guy from GX.
A smashes are a lot like Captain Falcon, but more punches and less kicks.
Up B- Same as Falcon’s/Gannondorf’s old one.
B- Falcon Punch, but he punches downward at an angle.
Side B- Headbutt. I was also listening to Tavros’s theme dESPERADO ROCKET CHAIRS, from the Homestuck album Alternia when I thought of this. Black Shadow has those cool horns, so he should use them in a constructive manner. 😛
Down B- What about doing that “power-up” move that everyone in Dragon Ball Z does? They just shout and this aura explodes around them. That would be pretty cool. Of course he could also do Gannondorf’s original Down B, which is a stomp with a fiery shockwave.
Final Smash: The opposite of the ultimate Falcon Punch; he jumps at the target, grabs them, punches them in the stomach (provided they have one), and throws them down at high speed, almost always resulting in a KO if they’re over an edge.
+Rick (???)*- Since there haven’t been any F-Zero games since F-Zero Climax for the GBA, we have no way of knowing if the anime was actually canon or not. I’m assuming it is, and that Rick would be a lot like Captain Falcon, but less fire attacks and more guns.
A Smashes would be punches and hitting people with the butt of his (laser) gun.
Up B- Captain Falcon’s Side B, but with a jump instead of a dash.
B- Shooting his (laser) gun. Can charge for a bigger (laser) blast.
Side B- Captain Falcon’s Side Smash, where he kicks several times and moves, except with a longer movement and more powerful.
Down B- Captain Falcon’s, but no fire and he also shoots his gun forward while sliding.
Final Smash- Captain Falcon armor begins flying around and attaching to him (if it hits someone else it does like 3-5% damage). Once it’s done, he looks like the next-gen Captain Falcon (if people could be upgraded), and then he does a giant Falcon Punch to the ground and flames shoot straight up. It would be like the Pokeball attack Entei from Melee does, but much more powerful and shorter.
Kirby Series——-
Kirby– Same moveset.
Final Smash: Turns into the Galactic Knight guy from Kirby Super Star Ultra. Completely awesome.
Meta-Knight– Same everything. Nerf him please though.
Dedede*- same everything. Now unlockable because he is a villain.
+Waddle Dee*?- He’s the 4th player in the upcoming Kirby Wii. If it proves popular enough, maybe he’ll get in. If not, then Gooey will probably get in instead. Unlockable because you would have to beat his final smash form in the story to unlock him.
A attacks are much like Kirby’s except he also has a fan that he can use.
Up B- Waddle Dee tries to fly as hard as he can, but fails. It still gets some height though. Then he gets his parasol out and floats down.
B- Suddenly gets Waddle Doo powers and shoots a laser. Can Charge for power, of course.
Side B- Uses the parasol as a drill as he tunnels forward. It’s a lot like Meta- Knight’s Side B but way less movement.
Down B-Megaton punch!!!!111 When he hits the ground, he hurts his hand really bad and has some recoil damage and is also vulnerable for 1-2 seconds. But it’s actually really powerful.
Final Smash- Gets possessed by the Dark Matter and can do awesome attacks as the Dark Matter King. I think this has some basis in the Kirby series, but I really can’t remember as it has been so long since I’ve played one.
Star Fox Series——-
Fox– Same Moveset, but Final Smash- Turns into James McFreakingCloud. In addition to a huge long scarf that is like a cape and awesome shades, he dual-wields guns and is much more powerful/faster. This can either be his father or the F-Zero one. I don’t really care. 😛
Falco*-Because he was the original clone. …Besides Luigi.
Same movest, but Final Smash- Hops in an Arwing and gets to blast at foes from offscreen, sort of like Snake’s Final Smash in Brawl. Except with lasers and no obscuring the screen.
+Krystal*- Also one of the most-requested Smashers not to get in.
A Smashes would primarily use her staff.
Up B- Just a normal third jump with her staff that can be used for tethering.
B- Shoots gun. She can’t do it in rapid succession, so it’s like Wolf’s gun.
Side B- A really fierce staff slash. She also jumps before slashing.
Down B- A crystal forms around her and immobilizes her. But she’s nearly impenetrable (takes 75% less damage and no recoil), and the crystal explodes after the attack is done (4-5 seconds I guess, however long Jigglypuff’s sleep attack is). You can also manually end the attack after 2 seconds to catch nearby opponents off-guard.
Final Smash- Gets on her pterodactyl and soars around at insane speeds, like Lyn’s Assist Trophy attack from Brawl, except controllable.
Wolf*- Same moveset and same final smash. Of course the Landmaster is nerfed so it can be less completely overpowering.
Pokémon Series——–
Pikachu– Same moveset. Final Smash would definitely have to be evolving into Raichu.
Jigglypuff*- Same everything.
+Plusle & Minun*- They were scrapped Brawl characters, so I would assume that they will probably get in this time around. Minun acts as the CPU to Plusle, the PC, like with the Ice Climbers, so all moves are supposed to have both combined.
Their A attacks are just like Pikachu’s.
Up B- Minun throws Plusle up like a rocket (fastball special!), doing electric damage to all hit.
B- Pikachu’s Electric attack, but they shoot lightning at opposite sides and anyone who touches them during this attack will get shocked.
Side B- They clap hands and do a spinning attack that’s like an electric top.
Down B- Both will do separate thunders at once. For once it’s good to have them separate.
Pikachu’s from Brawl except somewhat different; like 2 sparks flying around, orbiting each other as they smack into opponents.
I thought it would be pretty awesome story-wise to have all 3 of the psychic Pokémon, aka the 3 that have been shown to be able to talk in the anime, be in the game and then eventually end up duking it out in a 3-way fight. All 3 have similar movesets but their play styles are crazy different.
Lucario*- Pretty much the same.
Mewtwo*- Finally back in, but modified so he could suck less.
His moveset would be pretty similar to his previous one. Differences:
B- He will charge up two different shadow balls and then you can launch both of them separately or at the same time.
Side B- I actually don’t remember what his Side B is, but it could be changed to a psychic punch kind of attack maybe?
Down B- He will psychically pick up a nearby item/person in front of him. You can move it around with the control stick and bash it into people or fling it into a character or into a pit. The latter is better for picking up other smashers. But this psychic control only lasts a few seconds, shorter if you have a character that’s struggling, so you have to act quickly! It also does minimal damage by itself; only 2 or 3%.

Final Smash- Tons of random objects, including items, rocks, enemies, and some hidden joke stuff, will fly from offscreen to a big pyscic pile right above him and then form a circle and spin around, going faster and faster, until suddenly zooming around the stage at insane speeds, knocking into other smashers. Very hard to dodge.
+Zorark*- automatic shoe-in. Illusion ability. Seriously. His moves are very tricky and can do some extreme mindgames, though he himself isn’t very strong.
A smashes would be like Lucario’s, but he can change into the other players and perform their smashes if he charges the smash long enough. That means he could do both Ness’s bat and Mario’s fire punch in the same battle. He is basically Shang Tsung except only with the abilities of the other 3 combatants.
Up B- Just like Shiek’s Up B ninja poof, except when he’s invisible, there will be an illusion of him standing at a random spot near where he poofed.
B- Shadow Ball, except he can throw it in any 4 directions, and two shadow balls will launch; one real, and one illusion ball that goes the opposite direction. Not as strong as the other two’s Shadow Balls of course.
Side B- he creates a copy of himself (up to 2 copies can be on the field at the same time) that will repeat the last 2-3 seconds of action that the real Zoark did. He can’t do any damage, but there’s almost no animation for the copy creation, so it will be hard for other players to discern who the real one is for a couple seconds.
Down B- Counter. If he counters an attack, he’ll summon 2 illusion clones of himself to punch the attacker from different directions (then fade away immediately).
Final Smash would be switching all of the opponents’ characters for 10-15 seconds. So if you had Zoark, Luigi, Mach Rider, and Marth, then Luigi could become Marth, and both Mach Rider and Marth could become Luigi, in a completely random fashion. The problem would be one-on-one matches. I guess that the opponent would just become another Zoark.

Fire Emblem Series——
Marth*- Same everything.
Ike*- Now in Vanguard Class from Radiant Dawn. Complete with the ear ring. He’s also a lot faster now since he’s much stronger and can actually hold his sword. His moves are the exact same, though.
+Black Knight*- The main villain of the Tellius series is also an extremely sympathetic character with tons of fans; he’s the most prominent Fire Emblem villain out of the whole series; how many non-Fire Emblem fans actually know who Nergal or Ashnard are? Also one of the most-requested characters to get into Brawl that didn’t. He’s the slowest character by far, but his defenses are amazing and he is really powerful.
A moves are generic sword swinging and slicing and slashing. His side smash is a smaller version of his B.
Up B- he uses his sword as a springboard to jump really high. Then the sword transports back into his hands, of course.
B- He slashes the ground and a beam shoots out in front of him, just like his regular ranged move.
Side B- He throws his sword in one direction. It goes to a certain point and then just spins in mid-air, so then he does this really fast dash and catches it. It’s like a horizontal Aether.
Down B- Black Knight stabs the ground, planting all nearby opponents into the ground, like DK’s Side B does.
Final Smash- He stabs the ground with his sword, and then his armor bursts apart (with Ashera in the background like with Palutena in Pit’s final smash) so he is completely exposed, and his armor re-forms into a sword. He’s just as powerful, but now he’s much faster and his sword is even longer. But his defenses are also really low so idiots can easily get him killed. This could also be a permanent transformation like Samus/ZSS, maybe? It’s the same moveset so it wouldn’t be that hard to do…
+Lyn– Seriously, she’s the best female lord in Fire Emblem, and part of the most popular game in the series. She was even an assist trophy! She will surely get in this. She has the speed of Shiek, but is a sword/bow user.
A smashes are generic sword moves.
Up B- Marth’s Up B.
B- Shoots a bow. She’s the fastest bow user in the game, but her bows are the weakest, and will automatically release after being charged for just a couple seconds.
Side B- Her attack animation in her second class, where she disappears like a ninja and then does 3 slashes, then disappears and returns to her normal spot. Like a boomerang version of Shiek/Zoark’s Up B.
Down B- Counter. She kicks the attacker. Doesn’t send them flying, but that way she can deliver more blows to them herself.
Final Smash- Does her Brawl assist trophy move, except much more powerful.
+Eliwood*- Yeah he is a lot like Roy, except older, considering he’s Roy’s dad. But the main difference between them is that Eliwood is on a horse (not backwards). Not that big.
A attacks are horse stomps and awesome slashes. His side smash is a horse kick for sure.
Up B- The horse bucks Eliwood up and then disappears. If Eliwood hits land, then the horse will return almost instantly. If somebody hits Eliwood before he touches the ground, then Eliwood will take more damage than normal.
B-How about Roy’s flame slash? That’d be cool.
Side B- ???
Down B- ???
Final Smash- His FE 7 critical.
+Hector*- If you have two of them, then you have to complete the FE 7 trio. Actually, Eliwood was my third pick, because Hector is the only axe lord and would be much cooler than Eliwood anyway. He’s slow, probably as slow as Gannondorf, but extremely powerful.
A attacks are generic sword slashes…. Except he has an axe.
Up B- Targeted axe-throw; it will hit anyone near him. He also doesn’t fall while his axe isn’t in his hands, but it’s not good as a recovery move.
B-Hand Axe throw. Extremely fast and powerful, but Hector can’t move while he doesn’t have his axe.
Side B- Does a Spin, and then when it’s over he slams the ground.
Down B- Slams the ground, which makes him jump up like Zero Suit Samus’s Down B. This is his recovery move, as he can do it on thin air as well. It will stun opponents too close to it.
Final Smash- Does a critical Hand Axe throw.
I really like this Fire Emblem roster, but I do know that Michiah from Radiant Dawn has a very good chance to get in, and then by extension so does Sothe. But I feel that FE 7 is much more important than any of the other games, and does indeed deserve 3 reps.
Earthbound Series——-
Ness*- Same
Lucas*-Same?

+Who could be the third Earthbound character? Claus could but there are definitely enough sword users in this roster already. There’s also Pokey in Earthbound form, and Paula, though she would likely just be a clone of Ness. Poo would be good, but is also a sword user. Jeff… Nah. There’s more than enough characters in all 3 games to get somebody good and diverse. Flint, anybody?
Retro——-
+Balloon Fighter-A scrapped Melee character. Obscure by all means, but I still think he would be an amazing smasher. He can infinitely jump, controlling just like he does in Balloon Fight, but his balloons can also be popped so he can’t even fly at all.
A smashes- Side would be a two handed push that could, well, push enemies, down smash would be a kick from him doing the splits (as far as he can before dying at least :P). Up smash would be him throwing himself in the air and floating for a second.
Up B- ???
B- He uses a slingshot. Charge, duh.
Side B- He throws out a green balloon in front of him. It can be used as a shield and it also acts like a bumper to enemy players.
Down B- His balloons jet up into the air with all of the force that they can. Also really fast. He can charge the move up to be more powerful. If he doesn’t have 2 balloons, he will have to use Up B to pump new ones up.
Final Smash: turns into a buff anime guy (the size of Ike) with 3 (!!!) balloons and insane power. This would be a hilarious transformation very fitting of any Smash game.

+Mach Rider*- Out of any old Nintendo title that could be rebooted, I firmly believe that Mach Rider is the best choice. So putting him in Smash like they did with Pit would be a great choice (retrospective: Kid Icarus Uprising was awesome no matter what you say). His game is set in this post apocalyptic world so you know he’s gotta have an awesome arsenal. In my imagination, his main weapon is a gun (probably a concussion gun because Nintendo hates bullets :P) that can split in half to form two swords. It’s Sort of like Terezi’s not-cane. When he splits his gun in half, it takes a few frames, but he’s very versatile. He’s also pretty slow due to a lot of armor (in this reboot version).
A smashes are a mixture of punches and sword slices.
Up B- Extra jump. Flames glow on the back of his suit, so it’s sort of a jetpack? It only lasts for a few seconds though.
B- Gun blasts. Either Fox-like (push rapidly) or a charge. IDK.
Side B- He gets on his bike. It’s much cooler than Wario’s, because it has a gun that you can shoot with by pressing A.
Down B- Counter. When he counters, he grapples the character and then lets them go as he slices them up.
Final Smash- ???
Pit– Same everything, except replace that crappy Side B move with an awesome gun from Kid Icarus: Uprising. Seriously. Some staff or claw action would be good too, maybe as A Smashes.
Ice Climbers– Exact. Same. Everything. They are a character that doesn’t really need any modifying from game to game.
ROB*- Same. The final smash could be less idiotic this time, but I have no clue what it could be changed to.
+Little Mac– Pretty much the perfect fighter. Duh.
A Smashes are lots of punches, duh. He barely even uses his feet, since he’s a boxer. Yes I stole that idea from Balrog.
Up B- Shoryuken!!! Sorta.
B- Punch. The longer you charge it, the more punches you can do, up to like 5.
Side B- Does a roll. Easy to dodge others with, and to get across the stage fast.
Down B- ???
Final Smash is Giga Mac. ‘Nuff Said.
Mr. Game and Watch*- The same. The Octopus could be changed I guess but other than his final smash he is fine.
Next two don’t have movesets yet because I have almost no clue about their games:
+Sukapon*- Joy Mech Fight was one of Nintendo’s first fighters and was a whole lot like Smash Bros. He is basically the daddy of the series!
+Takamaru*-The best Samurai ever; comes with a Panda alternate costume (Show Me Your News inside joke)
Modern——
Olimar– Same everything.
+Louie*- He’d be basically the Luigi-fied version of Olimar, with slightly different attacks and a different control method.

A attacks- pretty much the same as Olimar. For his side smash, he throws the Pikmin a lot longer than Olimar.
All of his B moves are mostly the same except for:
Side B- He can charge the throw and aim how high or low he throws each Pikmin.
Down B- He dismisses all of his Pikmin. They just stand there until an enemy gets near, or until Louie comes in contact with them again.
Final Smash-Gets on the Titan Dweevil and controls it. Because he is evil and we all know it…. O_O
+Mii– Duh. With the 3DS version focusing on RPG elements, the Mii will definitely be in and will have a customizable moveset. No matter how stupid of an idea it would be.
+Isaac*- Except in his Dark Dawn form, which means 40 years old and extremely awesome.
Moveset- ??? I haven’t played enough of Golden Sun to know exactly what moves he could have.
+Batallion Soldiers*- From Batallion Wars; a group of 4 short guys, each in the foot classes of the game; soldier, mech, flamethrower, and bazooka. You play as a cursor that commands them around with the attacks. Like a cross between Olimar and Ice Climbers. This would take full advantage of the touchscreen capabilities of both the Wii U and 3DS, something that the rest of the game is likely not to do.
A selects a character (and holding A then dragging can select multiple characters). You command them with the B moves:
Up B tells them to Attack. They’ll attack a selected enemy or just generally attack a nearby enemy.
B tells them to travel to a certain location that you selected. Otherwise it’s just “roam”.
Side B tells them to halt and defend in the direction that you press B with.
Down B tells them to… ???

But because you can control each of the units separately, you could be invincible if you are fast enough and smart enough. The enemies can’t see who you’re selecting on the touchscreen, so you can be really sneaky about it too.
3rd Party (no movesets yet)——
Snake*- Same? I would like to see Old Snake in here somehow, though probably just as an alt. costume I guess.
Sonic*- Same moveset, but Change Super Sonic into something that’s actually beatable or at least dodgeable, please. That thing was annoying and probably the reason final smashes were banned from tournaments (if they were more balanced I am sure that some tournaments would have allowed them)
+Travis Touchdown*- Complete epic win, that’s all.
+Maxwell*- From Scribblenauts. The series is hugely popular and he fits right in with the Nintendo cast. An infinite amount of possible moves.
+Rocket*- AKA the Blue Slime from Dragon Quest. The mascot of the series. With Nintendo’s huge partnership with Squeenix to make this series, this seems pretty obvious.
+Someone Capcom– Either Megaman, Zero, Ryu or Leon Kennedy. Pick one, because they’re all awesome. I’m hoping for Ryu personally.

+A Namco Character– Nacmo is helping Sora with the development of this game. There will be a Namco character in here somewhere, whether it be Klonoa, Pac-Man, or a character from Soul Calibur.
Removed——

Roy– With Eliwood being in, Roy becomes completely useless. He wasn’t all that popular anyway.

Toon Link– Unncecessary clone.
Extra——
Pokemon Trainer. I think he should skip out on the regular roster, but then come back as DLC. But not just him, but 5; 1 for each generation.

1= Squirtle/Ivysaur/Charizard,

2= Chikorita/Quilava/Feraligatr,

3= Treeko/Marshstomp/Blaziken,

4= Chimchar/Prinplup/Torrterra,

5= Tepig/Servine/Samurott.

I would also love each of the Pokemon Trainers to get a transformation type final smash where they turn into legendaries from each respective generation: 1= The three birds (except not sucky like in Melee) 2=The three dogs 3=The Regis 4= The three spirit… things 5= The 3 legendary… I don’t know what they are but it’s Cobalion and the gang.
+Metagross*- YES. HELL FREAKING YES. Final Smash is meteor mash and you know it.
… Not really 😛
Peppy– Surely a great WTF character, but only if SF643D sells well (retrospective: it sold pretty well). Which it will duh FS- hops in the Blue Marine (This is a WTF character ), still onscreen, and can shoot at people around the stage.

—————————–

There. Version 2 of the list is pretty complete. I find it much better than the original actually. Not many character changes, and no additions, but it’s still extremely solid, in my opinion. Any critiques or comments would be highly appreciated, including suggestions for more characters. Helping out with those ??? moves would be nice too. Assist Trophies, Pokeball Pokémon, and Stages will be next!

UPDATE 7-1-12: I have updated this page, revising some of the annoying 16-year old typing styles, making the wall of text easier to read by bolding different sections, and adding the fact that there will be a Namco character. I am still sticking to this roster, even over a year later.

Middle School Stories: How the Firefly Came to Be


How the Firefly Came to Be
By Thedude3445
(Written in second semester 7th grade, probably around February 2008. It was a class assignment to create our own Greek myth of how a certain exotic animal came to be. For some reason I chose the firefly.)
It was the year 220 AD. Zeus was sleeping when a loud BANG woke him up. The new alarm system went off, warning the gods at Olympus about any catastrophic event on the Earth. A great war was ensuing in the land where Spain would eventually be. Barbarian Warriors were attacking the Romans to aquire their own kingdoms, so Zeus went down to the city of Madral, where a heated battle was taking place, to settle the conflict.
When he was there, instead of being hailed as the almighty and omnipotent god that he was, he was mistaken for another! He walked up to the people to ask them about this petty squabble, but they could only gasp, calling him such silly names as “Jupiter”. Had the people forgotten about the wrath of the gods this quickly? After their initial shock, many stopped paying attention to Zeus altogether, readying themselves for combat once again.
Finally, he saw the destruction once again entering Madral, and commanded both the barbarians and Romans to stop immediately. The leader of the Romans, Lumos, refused, so Zeus transformed his men into insects, and then tossed a lightning bolt into him. The bolt exploded in magic and flames engulfed the swarm of insects, causing them to glow with never-ending fire. Zeus contained them and called them fireflies.
Their descendants, though not entirely on fire, have a light on their backsides that glow forevermore, lighting the world on many a summer night.
