Roleplay / Smash Academy
While this page is under some kind of construction
, I think this game is about Smash Brothers, fandoms related to it, and a school or something. Lots of things happen. You can find it here.
This game provides examples of:
- Academy of Adventure: Crazy abounds!
- Adults Are Useless: Massively averted. Many of the teachers and staff are just as competent as the righteous heroes that make up the student body. Of course, this also means the people on the villainous side of things also know what they're doing.
- Applied Phlebotinum: In spades. Healing magic and G-Diffusers and Neo Tanks and Phase Distorters, oh my. And that's not even mentioning the Phlebotinum that ends up in the food on occasion.
- Back from the Dead: Blacky was Killed Off for Real but came back as a ghost.
- Badass Teacher: Half the faculty.
- Bonus Material: The art and meme communities provide lots of this, in various forms: fanart, fanfiction, kink memes, surveys to be answered either in or out of character (although the former has no effect on game canon), and more.
- Crossover: Panfandom, but limited to video games.
- Education Through Pyrotechnics: These guys blow up a lot of stuff.
- Elaborate University High: It's a fancy boarding school for high school and college students where everyone learns to beat the snot out of each other. Among other things.
- Eyes Always Shut: Brock, Uxie, and Oscar.
- "Freaky Friday" Flip: Woe betide those unfortunate enough to swap bodies thanks to the antics of a certain Skull Kid. Hilarity Ensues when the characters invariably pretend to be each other.
- Humanity Ensues: A voluntary version (aside from the potential for a prank): Nonhuman characters are given the opportunity to become a human, which is referred to as either humanization or gijinka. There was even a seminar held once in a while to help those trying it for the first time, and there are different methods involved depending on what can be used (for example, Pokemon can learn it as a Hidden Move). However, this is not permanent, and a character can switch back and forth if they wish. A character doesn't even have to learn humanization to begin with if he or she (or the player) doesn't want to.
- If It's You, It's Okay: Giovanni, who claims to be straight, has this with Raikov.
- Journal Roleplay: Most interactions are done through this, although other methods of interaction aren't unheard of (such as an art-oriented thread on Tegaki E, or a chatroom or two-player chat on programs like AIM).
- Mean Character, Nice Actor: A lot of characters are complete dicks. Their muns are usually the sweetest people you could ever meet.
- Non-Player Character: There are quite a few of these, some major ones being Headmaster Hand, Crazy Hand, Tabuu, and Nancy the (cyborg) Cafeteria Ursaring. Some player characters have them in the form of pets or pokemon, for example.
- Olympus Mons: And how!
- Original Character: Characters that are based more around a species than a specific person (such as Pikmin or Pokemon) are pretty much fancharacters.
- O.C. Stand-in: Once in a while, someone decides to apply for a character that has very little importance, backstory, or even personality. And they succeed. Also, characters similar to the Heroic Mime can be subjected to a form of this.
- Politically Motivated Teacher: Cyrus, the MGS Russians, and, to a lesser extent, Eggman.
- Put on a Bus: Dropped characters almost always experience this. Some are reapped later on (by the same player or by someone else, and sometimes with a clean slate either way), but many are left with a Long Bus Trip. When Otacon was rebooted, he literally left on a bus.
