Trivia / Smash King

  • Development Hell: Episodes 13 and 17, much to the creator's annoyance. 13 was mainly due to the huge amount of fight scenes (requiring a lot of editing), while 17 was due to the incredible amount of exposition.
  • Mythology Gag: This one is arguable, but the voice that Tigura21 uses for Bowser is somewhat based on Bowser's voice from The Super Mario Bros. Super Show.
    • In a similar vein, Sonic's voice is based on Jaleel White, his voice from AoStH and SatAM. Dedede's voice takes inspiration from the Kirby! Right Back at Ya! anime.
  • What Could Have Been: Apparently, Tigura originally planned Marth to be the third teammate rather than Meta-Knight, but decided that having two human characters with Bowser in one team looked off.
    • Marth was also originally planned to be the third member of team Sonic but was replaced by Ike after Tigura21 decided to expand on Ike's role.
    • Even bigger was the original premise. Smash King was meant to be a sappy romance story between Bowser and Peach, before several revisions turned it into what it is today, even though some bits from the original plot made it into the final draft.
    • An alternate version of Peach's charging of the Peach beam was recorded not by her usual actress Megami33, but rather by Zelda's actress Kira Buckland.
  • The Other Darrin: Ike was orignally voiced by the creator, Tigura21, before the role was given to Iblis Star Evan.
    • This could be said for half the cast in the first couple of episodes. Prior to being remade, Episode 1 was voiced entirely by Tigura and Megami33, and Tigura voicing every character in the original version of Episode 2. With the cast having expanded and the aforementioned episodes being remade, this is no longer the case.
    • Ganondorf and Zelda are now expected to be replaced by other voice actors as well, due to Rina-Chan becoming too busy to continue being Zelda, and Tigura sadly ended up losing contact with Lioncourt (Ganon's VA). Zelda and Ganondorf are now voiced by Rachele1220 and TheHedgehogEngine, respectively.
