Go To

As a Whole

  • 0% Approval Rating: These guys get absolutely no respect for what they do, despite being the only semblance of a government in Brawl. Although it's easy to see why just by looking at them: their president doesn't even try to hide that he's a selfish Fat Bastard who abuses his privileges often, his two right-hand men are smarmy hosts at best, and the only one who even tries to do his job well is Pit, whose Nervous Wreck personality makes him obnoxious at times. In spite of this, the group has shown that they are capable of governing the world of Brawl, and their initial impressions are not as bad as one would think.

  • Combat Commentator: Fox and Falco share this role during Exhibition Matches.
  • Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass: On the outside, the group looks like your average corrupt government that couldn't care less about what's going on, so long as they're entertained, and everything goes according to plan. But when things turn dire, the entire group shows that they are more than capable of getting a handle on things, and genuinely cares about the security of the world they govern.
  • Embarrassing Nickname: Their name is often shortened to "The BS Society". The only one that seems oblivious to the meaning behind this name is Fox, who sometimes even uses it himself.
  • Freudian Trio: Although they fit the three roles a little loosely, Fox, Falco and Pit represent them very well. Fox is the Id, Falco is the Superego, and Pit is the Ego.

  • Kent Brockman News: They occasionally report on important events going on in the world of Brawl.

President Dedede

They're gonna make me a fortune, I say, a fortune that is! Plus I like 'em.

The head of the Brawl Spectator society and thus the man in charge of the world government. Dedede hosts the Brawl Tournament, having his men oversee its operations while he makes a profit from wagers. A womanizing Mr. Vice Guy usually played for comic relief, there's more to him though than the first glance would suggest... if only by so much.


  • A Lady on Each Arm: First introduced this way with two Zero Suits.
  • Back-to-Back Badasses: With Mario against Ganondorf in Episode 12.
  • Bad Santa: In the Winter Festival filler.
  • Big Eater
  • Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass: Though he'd rather wallow in his spoils, Dedede is a more skilled combatant than he lets on. Peach suspects it may be why he's president in the first place, and her suspicions are confirmed once Dedede reveals that he is a member of the Creator's Triune, alongside Bowser and Ganon.

  • Chivalrous Pervert: Dedede makes zero effort to hide his womanizing behavior, going so far as to move in on Peach in Episode 8. But after a brief scuffle with her, Dedede drops the flirty attitude towards her, and gives her some genuinely important notes about her unfair behavior towards Bowser, and how important her teammates are to achieve her goals.
  • Drop the Hammer: His main method of attacking his enemies.
  • Demoted to Extra: In Smash King HD, Dedede no longer is the president of the new world. He now simply lives among the common Smashers, much to his anguish.
    • Word of God confirms that Dedede is still President, but with Palutena acting as a "First Lady," Dedede's lavish lifestyle comes to an end, hence why he hangs out with Bowser and his friends.
  • Fat Bastard
  • Hidden Depths: He's very insightful when it comes to the matches, more so than others. Especially when it comes to Bowser.
  • Hypocrite: His selfish attitude is one of the many reasons his organization is "lovingly" reffered to as the B.S. Society.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: While he mostly cares about nobody but himself, Dedede is shown to genuinely care about Team Bowser, and what Ganondorf and the Creator are up to.
  • Large and in Charge
  • Mr. Vice Guy: As Peach put it, he's a pig in every sense of the word.
  • Power Trio: A member of the Creator's Triune, actually taking the position formerly held by Mewtwo.
  • Reasonable Authority Figure: Zig-zagged. While Dedede is shown to be Only in It for the Money in the first few episodes of the series, he grows from being a selfish pig with access to all the food and women he could ever want, to a responsible president of the world of Brawl, who makes good decisions to benefit everyone quickly. Even his deal with Ganondorf, the latter using Ridley as leverage, is made for the greater good and for Bowser to have a fighting chance.
  • The Rival: Briefly sees himself as one to Wario during Episode 5. It's Played for Laughs of course, since they're fighting for Samus's affection.
  • Royals Who Actually Do Something: Dedede comforts Peach after Bowser curbstomps Team Kong. He also fights alongside Mario against Ganondorf in episode 12.
    • Taken Up to Eleven in Episode 15. He takes it upon himself to hold Bowser within the BS Society for at least 24 hours until he decides what will happen to him. Then, he openly threatens Snake and his crew in the form of a "Reason You Suck" Speech, telling them that if they, or the creator don't show up, Dedede himself will hunt all three of them down. That takes a lot of guts, especially since Dedede is technically standing up against his own god in order to do what's right.

Fox McCloud

I'm going to observe.

A member of the Brawl Spectator Society and formerly the Top Fighter of Melee. Fox serves under President Dedede to manage the smooth operation of the Smash King Tournament, as well as commentating on the matches themselves with Falco. A perceptive individual and a good judge of character, Fox will follow his instincts when he senses something amiss, even if it means going behind the B.S. Society's back to do it.


  • Blood Knight: A subtler, heroic example. Fox loves watching or being part of a good fight. During the remake of the Meta Knight vs. Toon Link fight, he was so excited he could barely talk. He's also willing to battle Lizardon to get a share of food in the remake of Episode 5.
  • Catchphrase: "I'm fired up!" and any such variant.
  • Combat Commentator: His main role in the Smash King matches alongside Falco.
  • Comically Missing the Point: Doesn't get the big deal (That is, the context) over the abbreviation of their organization's name.
  • Cowboy Cop: Compared to Falco or Pit, Fox is more than willing to go off script to investigate things that personally bother him. In Episode 9, he decides to break into Team Ganon's base because he correctly suspects that something is up with them, forcing Pit to cover for him back at headquarters.
  • Eyes Never Lie: Advises Lucario to ignore his Aura Vision and instead look at Bowser's eyes to judge his honesty like he does, since he believes eyes are the windows of the soul.
  • Hot-Blooded: He's pretty relaxed most of the time, but Fox is quick to get fired up.
  • Not So Stoic: He's visibly nervous when Bowser complains about his role in helping Mewtwo attack him and Lizardon, and actually runs away in fear after he demands more drumsticks. After getting away from Bowser's cell, he lampshades this trope.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: The Red to Falco's Blue.
  • Speaks Fluent Animal: He's among the few characters who can understand Lizardon naturally, due to him also being a fox.
  • Tank Goodness: His Final Smash, the Landmaster.
  • The McCoy: Compared to Falco, is easily more excitable concerning matches. Also tends to be fair and spot the positives of fights. However, he does slip into some shades of being The Kirk, due to being justifiably nervous of Team Ganon's plans and Bowser's Ascent Mode.

Falco Lombardi

Really Fox? You really don't see why I hate the name?

A member of the Brawl Spectator Society and high ranked tier fighter in Melee. Falco works alongside Fox as Spectator for the Smash King Tournament. He is a bit more level-headed than Fox, and is quite annoyed of Dedede's antics that further cement their name of The B.S. Society.


  • Brooklyn Rage: Subtle, but it's there.
  • Big Damn Heroes: After running around trying to track Fox for a good chunk of Act II, he and Pit are among the first to swoop in to help keep Giga Bowser at bay in Hotel Bowser.
  • Guile Hero: Tricked Pit into letting slip that Fox had left without notifying him first, a clue that something was up.
  • The Lancer: Acts like this towards Fox and the Society as a whole.
  • Not So Stoic: He showed quite a loving and relaxed interest to Peach's Final Smash, and was seen panting on the ground after Bowser's epic fight.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: Blue to Fox's Red.
  • The Spock: He's calmer and a bit more practical at spectating, and tends to criticize flaws in others fighting attacks, or in the case of Bowser vs Pikachu, point out how easily Pikachu could win.

Pit

You're fouling up everything, you fool!

The third member of the Society, Pit is the referee for the Smash King tournament and various exposition matches. A complete by-the-books stickler, Pit is easily flustered when something goes awry.


  • Abled in the Adaptation: Most incarnations of Pit have his power of flight limited to what Palutena provides him, or with what he can manage on his own. In Smash King, Pit appears to be able to fly freely all across Brawl without any effort.
  • Bad Liar: When forced to cover up for Fox's disappearance in Episode 9, he acts very erratically and emotionally when talking to Falco. In spite of this, he almost manages to fool him in thinking nothing's wrong, until he accidentally lets it slip that Fox went out.
  • Butt-Monkey: Of the BS Society.
  • By-the-Book Cop: Pit follows President Dedede's orders very strictly, in contrast to Fox and Falco.
  • Combat Referee: He serves this role whenever an exhibition match is being held. He also patrols the world of Brawl to make sure no one is breaking any rules.
  • Characterization Marches On: In the older versions of some early episodes, Pit appeared as a more confident and disciplined enforcer of the tourney's laws, as opposed to the jumpy Nervous Wreck personality he would gain later on.
  • Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass: While not exactly a moron, Pit shows some traits of The Ditz on occasion. Doesn't stop him from fighting when the situation calls for it, however.
  • Gold and White Are Divine: His regular clothes outside of his uniform.
  • Flight: An interesting case, since he's not reliant on Palutena for it, see Abled in the Adaptation above.
  • Hidden Depths: Although Pit tries to remain as apolitical as possible when it comes to the Smash King tourney, he does admit to liking Team Sonic the most in Episode 9, although not enough to try to rig tournament results in favor of them.
  • The Kirk: Works well mediating with Fox's energy and Falco's reservedness. Fitting in that he's also a referee. That being said, he does have shades of being The McCoy, due to his high-strung and emotional personality.
  • Mistaken for Gay: By Falco, pointing out how devoted he is to Fox.
  • Nervous Wreck: The abuse he's gone through in his career has gotten to him so badly he's on a perscription for it.
  • No Sense of Humor
  • Rules Lawyer: A major stickler for the rules.
  • Secret Keeper: Was asked to keep Fox's leaving under wraps. It didn't last long against Falco.
  • Undying Loyalty: To Fox of all people. Even if it goes against his beliefs, Pit will do what he can to help Fox.
    • Also to Palutena in the Fourth World, much to Dedede's chagrin.
