Drinking Game / Super Smash Bros.

Go To

Let's play Get Smashed Bros! Play in a 5 stock or 5 minute multiplayer match on any stage, with items but no teams (preferably). You can't pause to take a drink.

General Rules

  • Drink when you get KO'd.
    • If you're playing Stock Match, and you wait until the revival platform disappears automatically, drink again.
  • If you get a legendary in a Pokeball, take a drink.
    • If you get a Goldeen in a Pokeball, everyone else drinks.
      • If the Goldeen came from a Master Ball, everyone takes two drinks.
  • If the crowd chants your name, everyone else takes a drink because you're awesome.
    • If you are playing as Dark Pit note , take a sympathetic drink for his sake while the others take theirs.
  • If you manage to win a match as Pichu, finish your drink because you earned it. Doesn't apply to Ultimate.
  • If you use a Smash Ball, drink.
  • If you're hurt while taunting, take a drink for arrogance. Two if you play as the Duck Hunt Duo.
  • If you lose all your lives or finish the match without anyone, finish your drink.
  • The winner of a match gets to deal out a drink to someone, the loser has to take a drink.
    • Alternatively, take a drink relative to your position ie. the winner takes four drinks, 2nd place takes three, 3rd takes two, and 4th takes one. The better players receive the handicap of being drunk, so everyone's playing ability levels out fast.

  • If an explosive spawns on top of you while attacking and then explodes, take a drink out of sadness.
  • If you're playing on Gaur Plain (not Omega Mode or 8-Player Smash), take a shot each time Metal Face shows up.
    • Take another shot if he just flies away rather than being defeated.
  • If Pit or Dark Pit SD when using their respective arms, take a drink. This includes when you're playing as either of them.
  • If Meta Knight Drill Rushes off the stage, take a drink. Again, this includes when you're playing as him.
  • If playing on the Miiverse stage, take a drink if a meme post shows up. Add a sip if Donkey Kong is in the fight and an Expand post comes up.
    • If an insult post comes up, take a big drink. Finish in a bit of rage if it's directed at your character.
    • If an inappropriate post comes up, take a drink. Reaching for the Brain Bleach is optional.
    • If a call for a certain character to be voted in as DLC comes up, drink.
      • Take another drink if they aren't even a Nintendo character.
      • And another if they aren't even a gaming character.
      • Down the glass if it is for freaking Shrek.
      • Down the bottle if it's for Goku.
    • Advertisement:
    • A post talking about how Ness is Sans? That deserves a drink.
    • Take two drinks if a post comes up saying '(Insert) will never be DLC'.
    • If an impressively well-drawn piece of character art comes up, drink.
    • If a post that has nothing to do with the game, or even gaming at all, comes up, drink. Optional extra drinks if it's clearly just being used to soapbox personal opinions.
    • Take a drink for every "Sanic" joke you see. Take an extra drink if Sonic's not even fighting and you see one.
    • Take a drink for every time you see a Harambe joke. Optionally, down the bottle if one appears when not pertaining to Donkey Kong or Diddy Kong.
    • Take a drink if it has nothing to do with the character it's referring to.
    • Take a drink if it mentions Zero Suit Samus' boobs. Take another drink if ZSS isn't in the match, and another if the match is all male.
    • If you're playing the stage after Miiverse's shutdown, take two drinks.
  • If you or someone else chooses Final Destination (or, in WiiU/3DS and Ultimate, any Omega stage), take a drink. If this gives you an advantage (e.g. due to good projectile attacks or playing as Little Mac), take a second drink.
  • If Final Smash meter is on and someone uses a final smash, take a drink.
  • In Cruel Melee/Brawl/Smash, take a celebratory drink every time you succeed in KO'ing an enemy.
    • Alternate version for those who do not fear death: Take a drink every time you die with 0 KO's.
  • Take a drink if you or someone else is playing as Snake and you or they get KO'd by your/their own mine or grenade. Down your entire drink if it was in Ultimate and was your/their last stock in the game so the camera zooms in on the finishing move.

Additional Rules

For reference, this includes most fights against a Mario character (i.e. Petey Piranha, Wario's first fight, Giant Diddy Kong, False Bowser, and the false Yoshi in the Great Maze, to name a few) and several cutscenes, meaning you'll probably get wasted before the Adventure Mode's over.

  • Take a shot every time you get connected to a Japanese person and they immediately leave.
  • Take a shot every time you go up against Ganondorf and they try to Ganoncide you (Flame Choke you on the ledge or offstage).

  • 4th: 1.5 shots.
  • 5th: 2 shots.
  • Bonus Rule: Take one shot immediately if you get KO'd by a Final Smash.

Classic Mode for WiiU:

  • Get a glass (for each player), separate from your actual one. The drink in the glass represents the gold on the fiend's scale; fill it proportional to the gold invested (chosen difficulty level). If you lose a match, you'll lose gold on the scale; drink proportional to the gold lost. Straws are strongly recommended to avoid overdrinking (or underdrinking).
  • Drink when an intruder appears.
  • Drink if you run out of stock in a match and your partner carries you through.
  • If you end a match with 2 stock, you're doing too well! Two drinks.
  • Drink if an AI is KO'd by doing something stupid.

Master Core. for WiiU

This is where it gets interesting...

Even the Odds

  • Any VS/Versus/Group/Smash mode can be played.
  • Drinks are taken at the end of each round.
  • The player in first takes as many drinks as there are players (e.g. For 8 Player Smash, first place takes 8 drinks), the second place player takes as many drinks as there are players minus one (e.g. 7 drinks), third place will drink player count - 2, and so on down the line.
  • The better players get drunker quicker, so their skill deteriorates quicker (unless they are Drunken Masters, in which case make sure they don't end up getting alcohol poisoning.)

World of Light

  • Take a quick victory sip when you collect a Novice Spirit, two if it's Advanced, three if it's an Ace, and four if it's a Legend.
    • Take another drink if you lose against a Spirit, a long one if it's a Legend.
    • Take two drinks if you lose to a character.
    • Finish your drink if you lose to a boss.
    • Take a victory swig once you defeat a boss.
  • Take three drinks once you unlock a character. Finish your bottle once you get all characters.
  • Grab a full bottle and chug once you defeat Galeem or Dharkon. Grab your whole pack of beers and drink them all once you win the final three-way fight with them.
  • Once you defeat all spaces in the maps of the mode, also finish your pack of beers.
  • If you 100% complete the mode on Hard, turn off your Switch and start drinking all the alcohol in your house. Call a hospital and have them ready first.

How well does it match the trope?
