''Smashtasm'' is a SmashBrosMachinima series by [[https://www.youtube.com/user/Shippiddge Shippiddge]].

The series takes place in a universe where ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBrosMelee'' (and in season two, ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBrosBrawl'') is an online-playable {{MMORPG}}. [=Super64=], a newbie to the game, was invited to a "tournament server" by a player named [=Killa7=]. But upon arrival to the location, [=Super64=] was attacked from behind and sent to another stage. There, he befriends the user [=1337f0x=] who tells him he got conned--tournaments aren't even a thing, and griefers just use the concept to lure players in and cheap-shot them, increasing their online rank in the process. [=Super64=] decides he has to find [=Killa7=] and knock him down a few pegs...

The first season ran for 10 episodes, released between 2007 and 2008. The second season, filmed in ''Brawl'', spanned 5 episodes released between 2008 and 2012 before it was seemingly abandoned. The entire series can be found [[https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL3B3996DD8968A63E here]].

!!This series has examples of:
* AlternateUniverse: This series has real life characters playing as ''Super Smash Bros.'' characters in an online game.
* AscendedExtra: In season 1, Lamp had a fairly minor role, and was pretty much a Mook, but, in season 2, he takes a more important role.
* AxCrazy: [=PrincessH=].
* BatmanGambit: [[spoiler: The only way to get rid of Greg at the end of Season 1.]]
* BigDamnHeroes: [[spoiler: ''The entire cast'' in episode 10]]
* BilingualBonus: Greg and [=l33tfox's=] full-l33t conversation. Spell out what they're actually saying as opposed to what the subtitles tell you. A few Website/YouTube commenters already have.
* TheChase: Season 1's primary plot.
* CharacterizationMarchesOn:
** Lamp's character quirks were not as prominent in Season 1 as they are in Season 2.
** Greg had some aspects of [=1337f0x=] (Leet speak being among them) in Season 1 in his first two appearances, but to perhaps distinguish the two more, later appearances go for a more [[DeadpanSnarker snarky]] sense of humor.
* {{Cliffhanger}}: Because of the OrphanedSeries example below, season 2 ended on this.
* CloudCuckoolander: Lamp, and to some extent, [=PrincessH=], who also mixes in AxCrazy for convenience.
* DarkChick: Technically Alan
* DiscOneFinalBoss: [=Killa7=] is pretty much a jerk, but isn't really anybody important.
* EvilTwin: The subject of another video.
* FelonyMisdemeanor: Online world of Smash Bros. shutting down by a bunch of [[TheCracker crackers]]? ''We're all gonna die''!
* HaveAGayOldTime: Faggot - A pile of sticks. If you thought it meant something else, then you are a terrible person. Colon P.
* ImagineSpot: The scenario that takes place in Dark Sheik/[=PrincessH=]'s head, [[spoiler: right before she betrays [=Super64=] has a HeelFaceTurn instead]].
* IntercontinuityCrossover: With [=Guitarmasterx7=]'s ''Machinima/{{Brawlgasm}}'' and Dexterboy124's ''Machinima/WolfsRetardedMission'' and ''Machinima/PeachsSluttyAdventure''. ''Beans'' is a crossover between the three.
* LargeHam: TheNarrator in season two.
* LeetLingo: [=1337f0x=]. At one point, he and Greg have ''an entire conversation spoken in (mock-)l33t'', complete with subtitles.
* TheManBehindTheMan: Greg and Killa7.
* MistakenForGay: a RunningGag of Gront and Grant
* MediumAwareness
* MythologyGag: There are several Stealth Puns and Injokes in this series regarding other Nintendo games.
* OnlySaneMan: [=Super64=] as the cast grows stranger and stranger.
* OrphanedSeries: Season 2 hasn't had a new episode since 2012, and with Shippiddge stating he's lost motivation, chances of it continuing are pretty damn low.
* PlotHole: [=1337f0x=] in particular holds the IdiotBall quite a bit. [[spoiler: In the climactic battle of the ''Melee'' season, it would have been very clear to any spectators that Super64 wasn't dead yet because there was no ring-out explosion, yet [=1337f0x=] immediately believes that he and Super64 have lost. At one point in the second season, [=1337f0x=] is trapped in a glitchy custom stage; he tries to log out, but logs back in at the exact same trapped spot. The very same episode mentions that there are lots of different serves he could have logged into instead. For that matter, there is no reason he should have been captured in the first place if the game doesn't penalize him from logging out (or if it does, he could have turned his modem off).]]
* PutOnABus: Several characters didn't return for Season 2, as their voice actors have had problems contacting or their mics don't work, among other things.
* RunningGag: Every time that [=Super64=] has a flashback, it tends to be inaccurate. [[LampshadeHanging The characters tend to notice this, even when they're inside [=Super64's=] flashbacks.]]
* ScheduleSlip: Season two. It wasn't until a year after episode 3 that episode 4 was released, and episode 5 was released ''two years'' after that.
* SeriousBusiness: Moreso than the StopHavingFunGuys. When did saving the online world of Super Smash Bros. become life or death?
* ShoutOut: At the beginning of episode 4:
-->[[WesternAnimation/HarveyBirdmanAttorneyAtLaw "Ha! HA! Sexual innuendo!"]]
* SpinOff: Grant and Gront, introduced in the second season, got a short-lived one.
** Ditto Lamp and Pimpachu, which only lasted two episodes. Their spin-off was only ''Smashtasm''-related series to receive a definitive conclusion, [[GainaxEnding but even then...]]
* SplitPersonality: [=PrincessH=] implies this, saying something about the other half of her brain.
* SlidingScaleOfIdealismVersusCynicism: Compared to ''Machinima/{{Brawlgasm}}'', very optimistic.
* SlidingScaleOfSeriousnessVersusSilliness: Compared to ''Brawlgasm'', very serious.
* TalkingToHimself: Both Grant and Gront are voiced by Creator/EdwynTiong, which makes their duet in episode 4 of season 2 all the more impressive.
* ThoseTwoBadGuys: Grant and Gront
* VisualPun: When Princess H asks "[[VideoGame/MetalGearSolid Can love bloom on the battlefield?]]", [=Super64=] [[LiteralMinded decides to test that theory]] by [[spoiler: going to Battlefield, saying "Nope"]].
