Smashtasm is a SmashBrosMachinima series by Shippidge.

The series takes place in a universe where ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBrosMelee'' (and in season two, ''Brawl'') is an online-playable {{MMORPG}}. The first season involves the main character, [=Super64=] (playing the default Mario), a newbie to the game, being invited to a "tournament server" by a player named [=Killa7=] (playing the default Bowser) but upon arrival to the location being hit from behind and K.O.'d, flying so far he ends up on a completely different stage. There, after a scuffle, he befriends the user [=1337f0x=] (playing the default Fox) 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, interacting with a plethora of quirky players along the way, learning that [=1337f0x=] is a PlayfulHacker and getting wrapped up in a dispute with [=1337f0x's=] [[TheCracker former associate who suddenly got evil intentions...]]

The second season starts with the capturing of [=1337f0x=], with [=Super64=] (now a moderator) intending to save him. More information can be found at the [[Characters/{{Smashtasm}} character sheet]].

!!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: The only way to get rid of Greg at the end of Season 1.
* BigDamnHeroes: Random people in episode 10, season 1
* 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.
* 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, right before she [[strike:betrays [=Super64=]]] has a HeelFaceTurn instead.
* IntercontinuityCrossover: With [=Guitarmasterx7=]'s ''Machinima/{{Brawlgasm}}'' and Dexterboy124's ''Machinima/WolfsRetardedMission'' and ''Machinima/PeachsSluttyAdventure''
* 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: The game engine makes no sense whatsoever. In both seasons the game is explicitly stated to be using the ''Melee'' or ''Brawl'' engines, just with drop-in online matchmaking. Yet players routinely act as if A) the game is in first-person with no HUD, and B) that there is only one giant world-map rather than thousands of servers each running independent versions of each map. Mail is delivered by hand in-game, rather than through a chat or private message system, and there's no reason sensitive information has to be discussed in the game rather than over email or Skype chats.
** [=1337f0x=] in particular holds the IdiotBall quite a bit. 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 aren't returning 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: It wasn't until a ''year later'' til we got Episode 4 and ''two years'' after that for Episode 5.
* 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 have their own series now, aptly titled: ''Grant and Gront''.
* 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 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"]].
