Brawl in the Family is a Gag Per Day Gaming Webcomic hosted on Keenspot starring Kirby, and featuring various video game characters, mainly those that have appeared in the Super Smash Bros. series, but most of the plots and running jokes are based on Kirby and King Dedede. It is written and drawn by Matthew Taranto, AKA TriforceBun from the Phoenix Wright Musical Project.

The comic usually uses a fairly simplistic art style, originating from bored-in-class sketches and doodles. There is more complex art on occasion, including homages and tributes to the styles of other artists. It's very funny and very cute. (That is, when it's not super disturbing.) If you are a Nintendo fan, this is a Webcomic you must read.

Due to Matt's Crohn's disease acting up, the series went through a Series Hiatus just before the 400th comic for over a month and a half, and fans wished him well in this forum thread. However, on April 10th, he announced that the series will be regularly updated again now that he's been taking medicine. He later got married in June 2012 and took another hiatus due to his honeymoon. That hiatus ended July 3, along with the belated announcement that the first Brawl in the Family book was to be released, with the first 200 comics and a huge amount of content thanks to extensive funding. There is also a podcast, which can be found in the description of a few of the blog posts.

Thanks to the notoriety gained from the comic, Matt has become the comic artist for Nintendo Force, the fan-made Spiritual Successor Magazine to Nintendo Power, and created his own Kickstarter funded game, Tadpole Treble, a Rhythm Game made in the comic's art style. He has also supported other Kickstarter projects, such as Gamemaster Howard's Know-it-Alls and Nefarious.

On July 24, 2014, it was announced that the comic will be ending soon, and forum post clarified that it'll end for a variety of reasons, all of which are listed in the post. He has started another Kickstarter to fund the complete Brawl in the Family collection. The final comic will be comic #600, which will be the final part of a six part story arc, which will end on October 3, 2014, the exact same day Super Smash Bros. for the 3DS comes out in the US.
