Web Animation / Smash Bros Lawl

Smash Bros. Lawl is a web series based on Super Smash Bros., featuring many YouTube Poop and miscellaneous characters. It was created by chincherrinas on Youtube. The videos are usually a given character's moves and abilities, a "playthrough" of the Subspace Emissary story mode, or occasional miscellaneous videos about other features.

He is also the creator of The Frollo Show.

Others have also made their own versions of Lawl with other characters, most notably YTPguy17, Agito, Lawl Nova and Lawl of the Dead.

     The Roster

Tropes featured in this work:

  • Absurdly Spacious Sewer: The later parts of Madotsuki's dream world.
  • Advancing Wall of Doom: One made of fire pursues the player through part of Persian Forest. It does stop at a certain point, though.
  • All Just a Dream: The Yume Nikki-inspired "???" level.
  • All Men Are Perverts: All the male characters (and Snake) are attracted to Panty's pole dance.
    J. Jonah Jameson: Hah! I like your style! Rest assured, she has transferred my repulsion gel into outer space!
  • All There in the Manual: Extra information, such as characters stats, bios and matchups, among other things, can be found on the series' Facebook page.
  • Annoying Video Game Helper: invoked In-universe. Not even I.M. Meen can put up with Kaepora Gaebora, and it's possible to attack him and interrupt his speech.
  • Art Evolution: In the video showing Jameson's smash taunt, the art style was upgraded from Brawl to Smash 4's artstyle, and has stayed that way since.
  • Attack of the 50-Foot Whatever: The giant version of Irate Gamer made of Shadow Bugs.
  • The Bad Guy Wins: If you pick a villainous character and win Classic Mode, the wish they get from Chuck Norris and something bad will happen, if the video of Meen's run through Classic Mode is any indication.
  • Big "WHAT?!": The Nostalgia Critic lets one out when he sees Tommy Wiseau for the first time.
  • Bilingual Bonus: All characters from Mexican sources (Don Ramon, Jaime Maussan, Carlos Trejo and narrator Julio Cesar Palomera) retain Spanish without subtitles.
  • Boss in Mook Clothing: Dragon Breath, one of the badniks you face in Final Forest.
  • Chekhov's Skill: Learn how to take advantage of Kyukyu-Kun in ???, because it's the key to defeating the boss at the end.
  • Call-Back / Mythology Gag: The reason Tommy Wiseau attacks Nostalgia Critic is because of the Critic trashing his movie in a review.
    • The reason Yoshi was sleeping in the real Subspace Emissary? Mama Luigi told him a bedtime story.
  • Detectives Follow Footprints: The point of the Bicycle Tracks stage in Subspace Emissary is that Nostalgia Critic, Madotsuki, and Tommy Wiseau are following tracks left by the Irate Gamer, to track him down.
  • Doomed Hometown: The homes of Harkinian, AVGN, Tommy Wiseau, Madotsuki, and Leonidas are all destroyed in their introductory levels.
  • Dual Boss: On the Bicycle Tracks, Tommy is face to face with False Nostalgia Critic and Madotsuki.
    • In Final Forest, The King and Leonidas must both fight Frollo and Gaston.
  • Early-Bird Cameo: King Leonidas was revealed on the character menu before he first appeared for real. Gaston foreshadowed his appearance in Subspace Emissary before his proper introduction. Yomika was also first seen in Madotsuki's Classic Mode run, then her moveset was uploaded later on.
    • Multiple times in a character's moveset video, a future character is shown, especially earlier on.
  • Early Installment Weirdness: Earlier videos in the series were made pasting the characters over Super Smash Bros. Brawl footage, and often when fighting against actual Brawl characters you could see the characters underneath whose attacks are used as a base for the new characters' onesnote . The scenes where Lawl characters fought against eachother were animated from scratch instead, and so were later videos after the whole "characters Sakurai missed" shtick was removed.
  • Enemy Mine: The King and IM Meen team up and eventually upgrade to Vitriolic Best Buds. Later, Nostalgia Critic and Tommy Wiseau team up after fighting and stick together.
  • Foreshadowing: Madotsuki dreams about her eventual battle with Big Red.
  • Framing Device: Mama Luigi's moveset is just a bedtime story that he's telling to Yoshi.
  • Funny Background Event: At the end of The Nostalgia Critic's introductory video, his face is seen on the Irate Gamer's Smash Bros. poster.
  • Good All Along: It is implied that Gaston (and by extension, Frollo) is this. He is seen using a Dark Cannon. But in his Early-Bird Cameo, it's dropped at his feet, meaning it wasn't his. He and Frollo also have King Dedede's special pins on their trophy forms. He also kept Coconuts from firing a Dark Cannon at Meen.
  • Guide Dang It!: Kruel KOs are performed by knocking the defeated opponent at 120% or higher (on their last stock) while the victor has less than 120% damage. Each stage also has its own requirements on what direction the opponent needs to be flung to in order for the Kruel KO to occur, for example, KO'd upwards for the Epic Sax Stage.
  • Harder Than Hard: An Excellent Difficulty, which goes beyond Intense difficulty.
  • Heroic Mime: Parodied in Madotsuki's Classic Mode.
  • Hypocritical Humor: At the end of J. Jonah Jameson's moveset video, Hitler calls him a "whiny mustached man".
  • I Hate Past Me / Future Me Scares Me: Luigi and Mama Luigi encounter each other and both run off in opposite directions, screaming.
  • Irony: Guile's Final Smash, "Anti Terrorism" is essentially a suicidal bomb attack.
  • Lost Woods: The first half of Madotsuki's dream level.
    • The Trope Namer itself appears, in all of its maze-y goodness.
  • Love Interests: Madosuki hints this at times with her Pokéshipping-esque relationship with Tommy Wiseau during Subspace Emissary.
  • Marathon Boss: The Persian Messenger is depicted as this, with him taking a long time to give a very short opening, where only a small amount of damage can be given. Chincherrinas lampshades it with the transition, "Watching this whole battle would be madness."
  • Memetic Molester: In-Universe, The King accuses IM Meen of being a pedophile.
  • Multi-Mook Melee
  • Noodle Incident / Running Gag: Almost every time a battle starts and then gets cut to the very end, the "player" has 999% damage. Apparently there is always a That One Boss or Demonic Spider lurking between the transitions.
  • Not What It Looks Like: Tommy Wiseau starts fighting the evil clone of the Nostalgia Critic, but Madotsuki mistakes him for the real one, so she thinks Tommy's betrayed them.
  • Oh, Crap!: Nostalgia Critic has a non-verbal one when he realizes the fight with False Irate Gamer may not be as much of a cakewalk as first thought.
  • Puzzle Boss: Glutko of the first level is vulnerable after you feed it rocks.
    • Then there's Big Red. The player must get him to put his mouth around Kyukyu-Kun to make him vulnerable.
  • Rage Breaking Point: Nicolas Cage's final smash.
  • "Rashomon"-Style: To the original Subspace Emissary, this time showing the point of view of the characters who were "left out". The presence of the Halberd in Hyrule is the first sign, but it becomes even more apparent starting in Sparta, where characters are shown being a secret part of what is already known of the story.
  • Recurring Riff: A lot of the stage music for each stage is just remixes of the same song.
  • The Announcer: Keeping with the Super Smash Bros. tradition of course, it uses this trope. Originally, sentence mixing with Pat Cashman's voice was done, but after the post-stage overhaul, he was supposivelt Killed Off for Real and replaced with unlockable announcers. The first being Morgan Freeman.
  • The Rival: Many characters present act as this for one another. A character's specific rival is typically the penultimate battle in a Classic Mode run.
  • Royals Who Actually Do Something: Harkinian and Leonidas. They even have a few levels together.
  • Self-Deprecation: Part of the codec call Snake has about Frollo references how The Frollo Show (another thing made by Chincherrinas) isn't that known.
  • Sitcom Arch-Nemesis: Carlos Trejo absolutely despises Jaime Maussan, but the latter seems rather indifferent to this.
  • Slow No: When Nostalgia Critic tries to save Madotsuki from the Subspace Bomb.
  • Small Reference Pools: Hardly anyone knows who Yomika is, in or out of the universe.
  • Spin-Off: Many other Youtubers have made their own movesets in the style of these movesets. A user called YTPGuy17 has made his own movesets, except using Scratch.
  • Shout-Out: Plenty.
    • From Hyrule,
    I.M. Meen: You bring a light?
    The King: No.
    • Classic mode takes an appearance of the Arcade mode of the Street Fighter games.
      • Also on Classic Mode, the game gives the player an option to skip the bonus stage. The "Yes" option is Bison's memetic face, while the "No" option is the Engineer's Nope.avi.
    • The difficulty settings are shoutouts to internet culture in general. The most notable is the highest difficulty, which is the "Excellent" difficulty.
    • There are several references to chincherrinas' other major series:
      • Jameson's moveset video shows a stage based on Wilford Brimley's dimension in Frollo Finally Does It.
      • One of Aya's victory poses has her and Ogre perform the Bros Pose before teleporting away.
      • One of Billy Mays's victory poses has him hold the Magic Fire/Bleemo, with its price being $80000.
  • Summon Magic: Many attacks involve briefly summoning another character from the fighter's original work.
  • Supervillain Lair: Meen's Lair, Robotnik's Lair, Bison's Base, and Wily Castle, so far. To a lesser degree, Alfred Dreyer's Laboratory also counts.
  • Take That!: The Irate Gamer only exists in the game to be a bad character, whose gimmick is copying other characters... badly.
  • Timed Mission: The first part of Persian Forest requires you to kill 20 Persian Warriors before 50 seconds.
  • Unexpected Character: A lot the character choices seem to come out of left field, though some are due to Author Appeal.
  • Unexpected Gameplay Change: Sometimes throughout the story, instead of standard Smash battles or boss fights, the game shifts to Stamina mode.
  • Unique Enemy: So far, the ??? stage is the only place that Masada Wiseau appears. It's simply a version of Tommy Wiseau colored to resemble Seccom Masada Sensei, but it's unique in that he has a different name in the damage meter.
  • Villain Team-Up: Dr. Robotnik and Xerxes team up in Subspace Emissary. The player must fight a mixed crowd of their mooks on a few occasions.
    • Later on, Hitler releases Mary from her painting so that she can team up with him. Said teamup is rather comedic.
  • Vitriolic Best Buds: The King and IM Meen become this over time. It is implied that Nostalgia Critic and AVGN are this, as well.
  • What Could Have Been: In-Universe, these are characters who were "left out" of Smash Bros. Brawl.
  • Woobie of Mass Destruction: Mei-Ling sees The Nostalgia Critic as this.
    • Yomika
