Big things are happening on TV Tropes! New admins, new designs, fewer ads, mobile versions, beta testing opportunities, thematic discovery engine, fun trope tools and toys, and much more - Learn how to help here and discuss here.
In June of 2013, we learned of the existence of Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and 3DS. This glorious age was a time after Super Smash Bros Brawl, which featured special features called "Codecs", a communication feature from the Metal Gear Solid franchise, where Solid Snake would talk to Mission Control in the form of various characters, trading quips. Brawl featured these codecs as a means for Snake to talk to various Metal Gear characters about his fellow Smash Bros competitors. Another game which featured almost constant banter with Mission Control was another game by Smash creator Masahiro Sakurai, Kid Icarus: Uprising, which feature a lot of witty dialog between Pit and various deities, mostly the goddess of light, Palutena.
After the announcement of the new Smash Brothers games, including Pit and later Little Mac (whose own series Punch Out featured mid-round pep talks with his coach Doc Louis), the tropers of the Super Smash Bros thread in the forums began crafting their own, speculative "codecs" for Pit, Little Mac, and also for Solid Snake (but only towards new characters in the latter's case). It turns out that Pit Codecs are indeed confirmed for the Wii U version when playing on the stage, Palutena's Temple and occur by executing the smash taunt similar to Fox, Falco, Wolf and Snake.
These are the fruits of their efforts:
Hades: Ah ah ah. Settle down. I'm just checking in. Ah, fighting Bowser, I see.
Pit: Yeah, this guy is tough. He moves like a Strongarm and can breathe fire. He's one evil brute.
Hades: Oh, I don't know about "evil", Pitty.
Pit: Are you kidding? This guy invades the Mushroom Kingdom all the time!
Hades: That's no more than some human nations do. You should know that, Pitty.
Pit: Yeah, well...
Hades: "Evil" is in the eye of the beholder. One of Bowser's minions would tell you he's a beloved, if strict, leader. He runs his own country, and makes his minions feel at home. Pretty impressive, for such a diverse horde."
Pit: Like you with your minions?
Hades: Hm... no. I'm more of what you'd call a 'defy and die' kind of leader.
Pit: Who's this guy, Lady Palutena? He's like an animal standing on two feet!
Palutena: His name is Fox, and don't stare. That's normal in his world.
Pit: Fox? Is that a code name?
Palutena: No, it's his actual name. His full name is Fox McCloud, son of James McCloud.
Pit: James, and then Fox? ...Anyway, can you tell me any more about him?
Palutena: He's the leader of a spacefaring combat group called Star Fox.
Pit: Again with- wait, spacefaring?
Palutena: Yup! He and his team fight threats to the galaxy in powerful spaceships called Arwings. They're a mercenary group, free for hire.
Pit: So, he's like Magnus? In it for the money?
Palutena: More or less, but they're a bit picky about the jobs they take. Unlike their rival team, they go for missions that involve saving the galaxy. Which means they tend to go broke between missions.
Pit: Ah, so they're heroes!
Palutena: And they make sure to keep a running tab, so they send the bill when the mission's over.
Pit: Saving the world, and then charging for it... Hey, Lady Palutena, I have an idea.
Pit: Huh, that guy sure looks beefy for someone his size.
Palutena: That's Little Mac, Pit, and I wouldn't be judging anyone if I were your height.
Pit: I wasn't! And hey, what's that supposed to mean!?
Palutena: Oh, nothing. Anyway, Little Mac is a World Champ in the WVBA, and has an incredible defensive game, famed for dancing like a fly and biting like a mosquito.
Pit: Wow, sounds... Kinda gross.
Palutena: But more than that, Mac has a will of iron. There were many times in his rise to the top when it looked like his star was going to go out, only for him to grit his teeth and pull a win from the jaws of defeat!
Pit: Wow, sounds like my kinda guy!
Palutena: Says Mister "I'm Finished!" himself!
Pit: H-hey! It's not how many times you fall, it's how many times you get back up!
Palutena: That's a Mii Fighter, Pit. Miis are multi-talented warriors who have 3 different fighting styles: Gunner, Brawler, and Swordsman. Brawlers Like to fight up close, Gunners fight from long distances, and Swordsmen are somewhere in between.
Pit: Hey, Palutena? They look almost human...but something is a bit off...
Palutena: That's because they aren't. Miis actually have the power to change their appearance to look like anyone, and they can be in any period in time.
Pit: What?! But that could mean... Are you the real Lady Palutena?
Palutena: Not really, no.
Pit: Heh heh...you're not serious right, Lady Palutena?
Palutena: Pit, what's up with your face? It's as red as a tomato.
Pit: Uh, what are you talking about milady? My face isn't red. Never have been through out this fight...
Palutena: Stop lying to the all seeing goddess Pit. Is it because you're fighting Samus in her Zero Suit? It's not okay to stare...
Pit: Well, yeah! I am fighting Zero Suit Samus, but I swear it's not the reason I'm like this! Honest!
Palutena: Sure it isn't. Anyway, I'd stay clear of those kicks if I was you. She's seems to have armed herself with boots that are attached with rockets. She's also armed with that gun that paralyze if you... Pit, are you even listening to me?!
Pit: Huh? Oh sure, milady! Rocket boots and the Paralyzer. Gotta look out for that!
Palutena: (sigh) Pit, if I were you I'd keep those thoughts in check, especially around the most feared bounty hunter in the galaxy!
Pit: Sorry, milady. Can't be helped huh? (nervous laughter)
Palutena: That's not a werewolf- just a Wolf. Well, the Wolf. His name is Wolf O'Donnel, and he's a mercenary with Star Wolf Team.
Pit: Phew. I thought he would bite me, then I would become a werewolf.
Palutena: That's no reason to let your guard down, Pit. He's a dangerous guy. Unpredictable, too. Sometimes he fights your friend Fox, sometimes he doesn't, and no matter how many times he gets shot down, he always lives to fight another day."
Pit: Well, werewolves don't die unless you kill them with silver."
Viridi: HE'S NOT A WEREWOLF!
Pit(?): ...How'd you butt in on this conversation, Viridi?
Viridi: Because I'm sick of you guys saying bad things about creatures from my domain!
Palutena: (chuckles) That's because it's not Marth. That's Lucina.
Pit: Who's Lucina?
Palutena: Lucina is Marth's descendant from a few thousand years after his time. She's from the—
Pit: Wait, she? You're telling me that's a girl?!
Palutena: ...Yes. That's why she's more feminine than usual.
Pit: I thought you told me that's not Marth?
Palutena: Oh Pit... Anyway, Lucina is from a future where the fell dragon Grima wiped out all but a few of her people. She tried to prevent Grima's ascension by time-traveling to the past to her father Chrom's time.
Pit: I can only imagine how awkward that family reunion went.
Palutena: Well, not really...I mean, it did get awkward later, but that's another point. She hid her identity by wearing a butterfly mask and passing herself off as Marth.
Pit: How'd she manage to pass herself off as a guy?
Palutena: You tell me, Mr. "Marth looks more feminine than usual today".
Palutena: That's Robin, Pit. She's the battle tactician of a legendary group of warriors known as the Shepherds.
Pit: A battle tactician? So she directs the army into battles?
Palutena: Not only that, but she tends to lead the charge.
Pit: Really? I thought tacticians were more the type to sit around maps before the battle."
Palutena: Maybe for some, but Robin likes to defend her allies directly. She may not directly be the leader of the group, but they definitely rely on her sword, spells, and knowledge of the battlefield.
Pit: Oh, so she's kind of like me! I'm both a warrior and Captain of the guard!
Palutena: Well, I'd say her strategy is a bit more advanced than yours, Pit. Her allies don't get revived, so she tends to be a bit more subtle than just going 'ALL TROOPS, MOVE OUT!' and hoping they deal some damage before dying.
Pit: Well... you go with what works...
Pit VS Palutena, by 13ssbb
Viridi: I've been waiting a LONG time for this!
Hades: For once, I agree. Poor Pitty's gonna be pounded by Pretty Palutena.
Phosphera: I wouldn't mind going down there and shocking him a few times myself.
Magnus: Will someone pass the popcorn?
Pit: Why does everyone want to see me lose? Seriously, why ME?!
Palutena: Well Pit, you could always forfeit and face us all at once.
Dark Pit: Be careful Pit. You may have the weapons, but she has the powers to make or break them. And you don't wanna let her grab a smash ball, unless you wanna relive your more painful Light Vs. Dark days.
Palutena: It's nice of you to help Pit out, Pittoo.
Pit: Yeah...you're the only one on my side. What gives?
Dark Pit: Don't get the wrong idea, I'd love to see you smashed into the surface as much as them, but remember; no you, no me.
Palutena: So Pit, why don't you do one of your boss-rally cries?
Pit: Uh...the match has already started.
Palutena: I seem to recall that not stopping you before a few times, no matter how ridiculous they were.
Pit: You mean awesome!
Palutena: Okay then, I'll do one. *ahem* Angel of the heavens, hear my words! By the end of this match, you will know the true power of a goddess! For I am the Goddess of Light, Palutena. My divine powers will break the wings on your back!
Pit: Woah...that wasn't bad. Harsh, but not bad.
Palutena: what did I tell you, anything an angel can do, a goddess can do better. It's a known fact.
Pit: Oh yeah? Try this! *ahem* Goddess of Light, hear MY words! I am Pit, commander of the Centurions. Your powers of sarcasticness and bad humor are no match for my awesome power! I may not be able to fly, but soon YOU won't be able get off the ground either!
Viridi: What is it, Pit? I'm kind of busy right now.
Pit: Why is it that when I look at this dog, all I feel is anger and frustration?
Viridi: You wouldn't be the first. This guy's been taunting players with bad aim since before your first scuffle with Medusa.
Pit: Is he saying I have bad aim?!
Hades: How adorable. Even dogs and ducks go out of their way to mock little Pitty-pat!
Hades: Easy, Pitty-pat. I just thought you should know that the dog isn't the one you should be worried about.
Pit: What do you mean?
Hades: I mean the real threat is the gunner just off-screen. All the dog is doing is barking orders at him, pardon the pun. And besides, you should really cut that pooch some slack. It's not easy being a dog. You would know, wouldn't you, Pitty-pat?
Palutena: "That's correct, Pit! And not just any Pokémon. That's Mewtwo, the Genetic Pokémon. It has powerful psychic abilities, making it one of the most feared Pokémon in all the world. Some say it can speak with humans with telepathy. Some others say it doesn't want to."
Pit: "So why's he called the Genetic Pokémon?"
Palutena: "Well, Mewtwo is the result of a great many genetic experiments performed by human scientists. They were trying to make a clone of the legendary Pokémon, Mew."
Pit: "Mew...Two? Not the most original name."
Palutena: "I think it's a great name."
Pit: "Huh? But it's just-"
Palutena: "Short, snappy, and to the point. I dare say any clone should be happy to have a name as good as that."
Pit: Another me? Don't tell me someone's fixed the Mirror of Truth, have they?
Palutena: Don't worry, Pit. That's just someone else playing as you.
Pit: Oh, right. It's Smash Bros, so there can be more than one of me. Gotta remember that. So how many of these copies are there? I know Pittoo used to be one of them, but he's his own character in this game, so now I've lost track.
Palutena: Well, you've got eight costume colors to yourself, and then Pittoo has eight of his own, so that should be... wow, sixteen Pits' total, and the Wii U can support eight of them fighting at the same time.
Pit: Sixteen of me? And eight at the same time?! How does that... I don't even... you know what, forget it. Come on, Pitthree! Let's get this fight over with!
Palutena: "Pitthree?" Even I wouldn't go that far...
Wario by Dallenson
Pit: Ugh... What is that smell...
Viridi: That smell is coming from Wario, Mario's evil opposite. Everything about his character is something I absolutely despise. He's obese, eats unhealthy garlic, horrible body odor, gassy, he's greedy to the point he sold a "micro-game" franchise to cheap people out of their money and rides a motorcycle that is one-hundred percent hostile to the environment. He is the textbook example of why I oppose these unnatural humans in the first place!
Pit: Eheheheh... So you're cheering me on right?
Viridi: Of course I am, Pit! Throw everything you got at him and don't pull any punches! Oh and by the way: watch out for when he farts.
Pit: When he what? Ugh... I think I'm going to hurl...
Viridi: Do we have to repeat the conversation we had regarding Komaytos? No? Good. Anyway, those two paddles bounce a ball back and forth to each other. The ball bounces off solid surfaces so how effective it is more or less is base on the stage. You can even see which paddle is winning.
Pit: So it is more or less Pon-
Viridi: Lalalalala, I am not listening!
Lucas by SLthePyro
Pit: "C'mon, I've seen all these weak tricks from Ness already! Can't you show me anything new!?"
Viridi: "Hey, show some respect, jerk! Lucas is not weak! In fact, he uses his PSI way differently than Ness does!"
Pit: "Wha... huh!? Am I imagining things, or did Viridi just defend a human?"
Palutena: "I'm as shocked as you are!"
Viridi: "That boy is a special case."
Palutena: "Oh~ 'Special', you say...?"
Viridi: "Palutena, don't you dare say what I know you're thinking of saying. It's not like that."
Viridi: "Lucas was a direct victim of the very evils that I want humans exterminated for. Thanks to the greed and malice of an invader, Lucas lost his family and eventually his home. He had to grow up alone."
Pit: "Oh wow, really? That must've sucked..."
Viridi: "After about three years of loneliness, he learned how to use PSI. No one would've blamed him if he sought revenge with his newfound power, but... instead he used it to protect his people and his home."
Viridi: "He actually hates fighting more than anything. But he's not so naive that he won't defend himself and others when he has to. It can't be stressed enough that he charged headlong into the invader's armies and ruined their plans instead of killing them."
Pit: "Wow... that takes guts."
Palutena: "I never thought you'd want to learn so much about a human, Viridi. Unless you were going to use the knowledge against them, of course."
Viridi: "Not this time. I know it's weird for me to say, but I respect Lucas. If only more humans were like him, maybe I wouldn't have to get rid of them..."
Pit: "Sheesh... and here I was hoping you'd turned over a new leaf..."
Viridi: "You wish."
Palutena: "Anyway, Viridi's right about Lucas' PSI working differently from Ness'. While Ness goes for raw power, Lucas is more tactical; he'll try to trip you up and capitalize on it instead."
Palutena: "Keep the pressure on him and don't let him start racking up a combo. He doesn't hit hard, but that damage will add up pretty quickly if you let it."
Snake: Otacon, what do Pac Pellets taste like? Is it true they taste like cookies?
Otacon: What? How can you think of food when you're in such serious trouble? You're fighting Pac-Man, Snake!
Snake: So? All he does is run away from ghosts and eat pellets.
Otacon: That's exactly the point, Snake! Years of escaping from ghosts whilst trapped in a maze has made him a master of evasion and turning the tables! He's lead whole armies of ghosts around a corner just to lead them into a trap that devours them in seconds! He's got other tricks, too! Butt bounces, pac dot shots, rev rolls, the list goes on!
Snake: Yeah, but he can't harm me if he doesn't get a power pellet, right?
Otacon: Not quite, Snake. Pac-Man may need power pellets to deal with ghosts, but he's more than capable of unleashing his fists on a physical opponent... or his mouth, if he's hungry.
Snake:What?!? Urgh, no wonder he's wearing such a predatory smile. He was waiting for me to make a mistake all this time! So, Otacon, how do I beat Pac-Man?
Otacon: You can't.
Otacon: The game was intended to go on indefinitely, but a glitch in the programming means level 256 is unbeatable, so...
Snake: That's not what I- You know what? Never mind. I'll just try painting my grenades yellow, maybe that will fool him.
Snake: It's some kind of... advanced... cyborg... well, it doesn't look very ninja-ish but...
Miller: No. That's spot-on Snake. That's Mega Man. He's an advanced, killer robot from the future.
Miller: He was built by genius roboticist Dr. Light. He's as agile as they come, dashing from left to right, jumping off walls, dashing. He can even fire a gun while hanging on a wall! You need to watch out for that Snake.
Snake: Well, there don't seem to be too many walls here so...
Paz: Actually, that's not entirely true.
Miller: Wh... what do you mean?
Paz: This Mega Man is the classic version, who can't fight while attached to a wall. The model that jumps off walls is Mega Man X, who comes from a future more distant than the classic version.
Miller: Well, I... wait, a more distant future? How do you know that?
Paz: Mega Man comes with several unique weapons from other robots he's defeated in the past.
Snake: Oh really? So there's a "procure-on-site" subroutine somewhere in that blue, metal dome of his?
Paz: Mega Man's primary weapon, though, and his most dangerous, is the Mega Buster. Think of it as a large, portable laser gun that comes out of his arm. It doesn't need any ammunition, can be fired rapidly, and he can charge it to make the blast more powerful, though this slows down the shot.
Snake: Infinite ammunition? Huh. Ridiculous. Technology hasn't come that far.
Paz: He's from the future Snake. You know, the thing we're fighting for?
Snake: And it leads to invincible fighting robots with laser cannons in the future? -grumble- That wasn't exactly what I had in mind for this world's future. -beat- Hey Kaz?
Snake: Get the R&D department on the line.
Miller: Uh, sure. What do you want to say to them?
Snake: Tell them I want a prototype Snake Buster by the end of the week, or there's going to be six new positions available in R&D.
Snake: Otacon, I've been seeing a lot of these big-headed freaks. What are they?
Otacon: Those are Mii Fighters, Snake. They're special characters that you make using the Mii Maker channel on the Wii U or 3DS. They come in three varieties, Brawler, Blaster and Swordmaster, each of which can be further customized by changing up their special moves.
Snake: So they're tailor-made mercenaries for any occasion.
Otacon: Well... essentially, yes. And you can make them look like anyone. Friends, family, celebrities...
Snake: Sounds like Les Enfant Terriblies all over again...
Snake: Kaz, there is someone shooting weird things at me.
Miller: What things exactly?
Snake: Sometimes its fire, or a beam of thunder, or even s/he is attacking me with his/her sword and its hitting me while s/he didn't
Miller: Ah, you must be fighting Robin then. The tactician of a group called the Shepherds.
Snake: So their tactician herds sheep by shooting them with thunders or fire?
Miller: No, they call themselves that, but they actually fight Risen, or other threats to their homeland. In fact, they have defeated a being known as Grima, apparently larger than a Metal Gear.
Snake: Bigger than Metal Gear? How do I fight him/her
Miller: S/he also completed it with a few of his/her men dying, almost no casualties. As for fighting him/her, you will have to try other strategies, s/he fights more subtle since people in his/her world can't be brought back to life if they die. Avoid any of his/her lasers, fires, wind attacks, and that levin sword and you will have an upper hand.
Snake: Colonel, there's this guy/woman shooting some kind of magic at me. I think s/he's using a... is that a book?!
Colonel: That must be Robin, Snake. Robin is the lead tactician of the Shepherds, a famous Ylissean vigilante group.
Snake: So s/he calls the shots, huh? Aren't tacticians supposed to stay out of the line of fire? S/he seems to enjoy getting right into it.
Colonel: Robin isn't your ordinary tactician. S/he's lead the Shepherds through countless battles with no casualties. I think part of that is because s/he isn't afraid to put his/her own life on the line for his/her comrades.
Snake: I always thought casualties were just another part of war. If Robin is that good, it's no wonder people are eager to follow him/her. Say, Colonel?
Colonel: Yes, Snake?
Snake: Any chance you'd be willing to lend me some backup one of these days?
Colonel: Sorry, Snake, but I don't think so. In addition to being a skilled tactician, Robin is also a powerful mage. Those "books" you saw him/her using are magic tomes. Robin has four of them, one for fire, wind, thunder, and dark magic. S/he also has two different swords; a bronze one for regular attacks, and a Levin Sword that deals electrical damage.
Snake: That's an impressive arsenal. How does s/he carry all that?
Colonel: To paraphrase Otacon: "You tell me, Mr. Utility Belt!"
Snake: Oh, right.
Colonel: Robin's weakness is that his/her equipment, aside from the bronze sword, all have limited uses. If you can hold out long enough, s/he'll exhaust them and leave him/herself vulnerable for a short time.
Snake: So play defensive and wait for him/her to slip up. Got it, Colonel!
Snake: Mei Ling, what just happened? Marth is looking and acting more feminine than usual, kinda like...
Mei Ling: You mean Lucina? You do know she is trying to fight you, right?
Snake: Wait, she?
Mei Ling: Yes, I thought you would know easily. Or have you lost your touch?
Mei Ling: Anyway, she came from a future that was ravaged by a being known as Grima, she went back to time to prevent the end of the world She pretended to be her 1000 year ancestor.
Snake: So she is his thousand year descendant. Wait, time travel? What's next, are you going to tell me someone can marry her? Or that one of her friends was this Grima person? Who knew she was a she anyway?
Mei Ling: To answer your questions, A male Robin or any of her comrades from the future can, I can only say yes, her friend in the timeline she jumped to was affiliated with Grima, and you can try figuring out the third question.
Snake: ... fine. How do I fight her?
Mei Ling: Just fight her like you would fight one of the previous heroes from Fire Emblem. Just know that any damage from her will be the same, even if she lightly grazed you with her sword.
Snake: Otacon, who's this kid with the laser sword?
Otacon: That's Shulk, also known as the "True Heir to the Monado." He's an engineer who lives on a giant mecha known as the Bionis.
Snake:He lives in a Mecha? I can't imagine how cramped that would be. Imagine settling down inside a Metal Gear.
Otacon: Shulk doesn't have that problem; his entire hometown fits on the Bionis' leg. Heck, compared to the Bionis, REX and RAY may as well be gnats!
Snake: If only they were as easy to get rid of as that.
Otacon: They could be for Shulk, Snake. The Monado, his sword, was originally used as a weapon against a race of machines known as Mechon. Don't think you could ask to borrow it, though; Shulk is the "True Heir" because he can use it without any drawbacks. The last guy to wield it - Dunban - lost the use of his right arm for that reason.
Snake: Well he's definitely a soldier; he fights like he knows what I'll do before I do it.
Otacon: That's because the Monado also lets him see the future.
Snake: ... Otacon?
Snake: I really want that sword.
Otacon:I know, Snake. I know.
Dark Pit, by superkeijikun
Snake: Otacon, there's another kid here with wings, but he looks different...a clone, maybe?
Viridi: Wait, who is this 'Otacon'?
Snake: What the-Who are you, and how did you get this frequency?!
Viridi: I should be asking that question! I don't recall ever giving this number to a filthy human!
Snake: What do you mean 'filthy human'?
Viridi: You humans know nothing but how to make war and ruin the environment. Just look at yourself, armed to the teeth like some one-man army! You epitomize the problem with humans!
Snake: Listen, kid! We humans may be violent, and war is terrible, but I'm fighting to stop wars from ever breaking out again, and I don't have to justify myself to some pipsqueak!
Viridi: 'Pipsqueak'?! Why, I've got half a mind to drop a Reset Bomb on your stupid head right this instant!
Snake: I don't have time for this. We're done talking.
Viridi: Hey, don't you hang up on me!
(If Snake is defeated in mid-conversation) Viridi: Snake! Don't you ignore me when I'm talking to you! Snake?! SNAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAKE!
Little Mac, by mariic
Snake: Colonel, I'm fighting against a short boxer, and he looks familiar, but also different.
Doc: That "short boxer" is Little Mac, and the name's Doc Louis, not "Colonel". By the way, he changed his appearance after his comeback.
Snake: ! How do people keep accessing this frequency?
Doc: That I don't know, but what I DO know is that Mac there is one of the greatest, if not THE greatest boxer in the history of VWBA. Heck, I should know because I'm his coach!
Snake: Maybe, but don't you think he's way out of his league?
Doc: Don't you worry about him, he's just as capable as you or every other brawler are. Heck, he once KO'd Donkey Kong a few years ago!
Doc: I know, right? Oh, before you go, make sure you never, and I mean NEVER, make fun of his height.
"Clear your head, Mac baby! This sucka can read your mind, so you gotta psych him out! Get out there and show him that type matchups don't matter in Smash!"
ROB by Pytas
"This robot ain't no toy! Dodge his Robo Beams and then give him a couple punches between the optics!"
Mii Fighter Rosters
During the beginning of Nintendo's E3 Digital Event, after an awe-inspiring fight scene between Satoru Iwata and Reggie Fils-Aime, it was revealed that you can in fact play as your Mii in the latest Smash Bros game (playable in 3 different varieties: Brawler, Swordfighter and Gunner). Since then, fans have talked at length about the many, MANY Miis they will create in the game. These are what the Tropers are planning to create.
Brawler: The Count from Sesame Street, and my own Mii.
Swordsman: Uncle Leo(?!) from Seinfeldnote Uncle Leo currently has my highest Classic score on ''WiiU'' among all characters (and one of a few characters that have won on 9.0), so he's not going anywhere., Jack Black (the Tenacious D character, specifically)
Gunner: Eggman from Sonic, Commander Sheperd (female) from Mass Effect.
ultimatepheer: “Aaaand now I have the image in my head of Rosalina and Palutena sitting around somewhere, having tea, and just discussing whatever trivial things Goddesses like them discuss. And Rosalina Gloating that Lumas are way cuter than anyone Palutena has.”
"Hey Palutena, whatcha thinkin' about?"
"Oh, I dunno... Goddess stuff, I guess"
"thinkin' of life *teardrop*"
"Well, Centurions come back to life."
"So do Lumas. And I don't have to bring them back myself, either."
"I've got Pit."
"I've got Mario."
"Only when he's going into space on his own terms. And Pit remembers who I am." *sip*
"Yes, well. I doubt you ever had to reset the universe because an Obese Turtle decided to fall into a sun with enough force to collapse it into a black hole." *Smirk* *Sip*
"Oh, I can top that. Have you ever been infected by a living manifestation of chaos?"
"I really don't believe that is something to be proud of..."
ultimatepheer: "Are we interpreting these two as being Tsundere... for each other?"
A discussion of how to overcome "The Voiceless"
EvillPaladin: For the speech-less story: Just do something like in the Mario&Luigi series; have them talk in gibberish while characters capable of proper English/Japanese/what have you answer them, which gives you an idea of what they are saying.
I mean, just look at him, stare at his eyes, a dark, black, empty void. If you stare long enough you might find the truth about your God. It speaks to you, in terrible ways possible, speaking to you in different tongues, trying to distract you. Look closer and you'll be driven insane, but if you survive all that, there's only nothing. There is no God.
As your soul is floating around in this big empty void, you begin to feel yourself disappear, slowly driving you mad until you suddenly stop existing. There is no life after death for you, no way for your soul to be re-used in the fabric of time and space, to give birth to a newborn.
Somewhere on this planet, a child will be still-born, all because you descended too deep.
Also, there's the Game & Watch collection, so technically he's there.
"It's an honor to meet you Captain. Lady Palutena always spoke highly of you. Something about those nice fiery muscles."
"Show me your moves!"
"Well, I can shoot lots of magic arrows. And I can fly. Isn't that awesome!"
"I always wondered, what's in the Blue Falcon? Do you have snacks in there? Lady Palutena tells me I eat too much floor ice cream and that I need to start dieting. But all food restores my health equally, so I don't see the problem. Man, I'm hungry."
