YMMV / Smashtasm

  • Alternative Character Interpretation: Link, does he really think he's Link? Or is he just elaborately role playing? (In season one, the latter is implied, as Link briefly talks about how the B Attack sucks.)
  • Big-Lipped Alligator Moment: The series is prone to this.
    • Future's cameo in episode 4.
    • Super64 is hit on by a female player, but then Lamp hits the female player to reveal a Spambot, Super64 then asks how Lamp knew that. Cue surreal flashback and then Super64 asking what that had to do with his question, with Lamp apparently not knowing he was asked a question.
  • Ensemble Darkhorse: Lamp.
  • Fridge Brilliance: Why didn't Lamp's arrival help Super 64 out of his prison in the Season 2 premiere? The narrator said he was a plot device, while it was stated that "not even a poorly written plot device" would save him. Which explains the random Snake cameo.
  • Growing the Beard: Season 1 has a rather stiff script, takes itself a bit too seriously (although not without humor), and lacks a compelling central reason for the journey to start. Season 2 increased the humor, drops most pretenses of seriousness, and has an actual overarching villain the heroes need to defeat.
  • Hilarious in Hindsight: Souped-up Super 64 has a rapid fire fireball and Powered up cape. Fast forward to Sm4sh where Mario has custom moves in the form of "Fast Fireball" and "Gust Cape".
  • I Knew It!: Girem6 is Greg. Actually lampshaded too, with him stating that he thought he was "really obvious".
  • Misaimed Hatedom: Pimpachu is hated for being a "Poser", when he was meant as a parody of that stereotype.
  • Nightmare Fuel: PrincessH's tantrums and visceral threats.
    • Girem6's voice is legitimately freaky too.
  • The Scrappy: Pimpachu. Generally due to being an asshole to everyone around him, having an annoying voice, a rather superfluous reason to be in the narrative, and being a "poser" (the last of which is part of the joke). Even in-universe, nobody can stand him, and MewZero tells him to shut up.
