YMMV / Smash King

  • Big-Lipped Alligator Moment: The flashback of when Wario tried to introduce Kirby as a potential third team mate to Bowser.
    • This also applies to the Imagine Spot Wario has after Bowser temporarily ascends to godhood.
  • Cool and Unusual Punishment: It hasn't been revealed yet as to which it is, but Mewtwo's "Merry-go-Round" or "Carousel" are usually used as a threat to Bowser for one reason or another during his mentorship.
  • Crowning Music of Awesome: The title theme since around episode 7 or so is the second opening theme of Digimon Savers, "Hirari." Some the more recent episodes either use part of the full verison of the song or even use a Fan Dub version. The closing themes are nothing to sneeze at either.
  • Doing It for the Art: Machinima is never made with profit in mind. Tigura21 also refuses to put Smash King on Machinima.com's YouTube channel, pretty much the only way to actually make money with machinima, due to not wanting to lower the quality of the series by adhering to Machinima.com's rules.
  • Epileptic Trees: Since reincarnation is one of the many overarching themes in the series, many fans believe that Wario is a reincarnated Pichu. The evidence: both are perverts and also Bowser's best friend.
    • When given the fact that the Creator's Triune is comprised of trophies fought in the Event challenges, some believe that Mario, Sonic, and Snake are part of their own Triune, given that all three are fought in the final event mode of Brawl.
  • Fetish Fuel: Lucario to himself. Apparently, as Mewtwo, he always wanted fur.
  • Fountain of Memes: Bowser mentions a meme once a blue moon. From when Samus fires her Lazah, to addressing his sweetest Peach girl.
  • Hilarious in Hindsight: Pit has No Sense of Humor in this series. Come Kid Icarus: Uprising, however, he is like a rocket launcher of jokes.
    • Falco's original VA would go on to voice Revali, the arrogant but benevolent Rito in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. Revali is very similar to Falco in both appearance and personality, so much so that Tigura would comment on the coincidence.
    • During Wonders of the Miiverse, Samus and Peach decide to file a complaint with Dedede following several sexualized posts about the former. With the Miiverse service shutting down in 2017 (thereby eliminating the stage's main gimmick), it appears they succeeded.
  • Ho Yay: Bowser and Mewtwo are reaaaally close.
  • Moral Event Horizon: Link recognizes he's beyond this.
    Link: (to himself) Sorry Ike, but I've gotten far too comfortable with who I am now. I'm too far gone. And if that's going to be a problem, you'll just have to kill me. Maybe the Link after I'm gone will be more of your standards.
  • Schedule Slip: The Reunion Special, Christmas Special, The double episode release.
    • Not to mention Episode 17. Part 1 came out in October of 2013, Part 2 in December 2014, and Part 3 on January 31st, 2015.
    • The Episode 4 remake: Part 1 came in out April 2015, with the remaining two parts coming out in Fall 2016.
    • Most of these can be justified due to Word of God confirming that many of the episodes are edited on outdated hardware.
  • The Woobie: Some of his backstory depicts Bowser as this. Happens in the main story as well.
    • As of Smash King HD, Ridley seems to fall into this to a much lesser extent than Bowser. He's smitten for Lizardon, despite her and Bowser screwing with him on a daily basis. The way he desperately attempts to hit on her as she hangs up kinda makes you feel sorry for the poor guy.
  • Woobie, Destroyer of Worlds: It's implied that Ganondorf actually tried to be a nice guy in Melee before being rejected by the citizens. This led him to his Face–Heel Turn.
    • Ditto for Link. The pressure of living up to his past incarnations and defeating Ganondorf got to him badly, and rejected that path once Ganon told him that he was free to deviate from it.
