Fanfic / Attack of Giygas

Go To

Attack of Giygas is a Super Smash Bros. story by Hyper Inuyasha, who is a Troper here known as Lord Hyper.

Towards the end of the Brawl tournament, the cosmic evil known as Giygas shows up, along with a bunch of new minions. The story follows Fox, Pikachu, and Meta Knight as they travel across the Nintendo dimension, learning Giygas' evil plans and their attempts to stop him.

The author is known to be lazy. This is a bad thing, as Giygas uses this to his advantage.


The story can be found here. It is now finished, and has a sequel: The War against Giygas.

    • King Boo is also one, being unappreciated and seen as The Load.
  • Cerebus Syndrome: Starting from the WarioWare arc, the story gets more darker and dramatic. Still has traces of crack comedy though.

  • Cloud Cuckoolander: A good amount of the characters.
  • Continuity Nod: The bunch of squirrels who chase after our trio blame them for setting fire to their home from an earlier story.
  • Crack Fic: Started out this way until a coherent plot was made.
  • Determinator: The squirrels continue to chase after the heroes, even after getting eaten by Kraid.

  • Genius Ditz: Fox is an idiot in this story, but he's pretty good at piloting and driving.
  • Giant Space Flea from Nowhere: The Blooper in Toad Town Sewers
  • Heroic Sacrifice: ROB fights off Giygas while Falco and Jigglypuff escapes.
    • Meta Knight does one for Pikachu. He lives, but is put into a coma for an unknown time.

  • Killed Off for Real: ROB, Red the Pokemon Trainer
  • Knife Nut: Ashley loves to stab Lucas.
  • Laughably Evil: King Boo. Just... King Boo.
  • The Load: King Boo is called worthless by Giygas (he did get beaten by Luigi after all), and the only thing keeping him alive is the delivery of cupcakes. Ironically, he gets more secrets than anyone else.
  • Mad Doctor: Dr. Mario
  • My Greatest Failure: Meta Knight is still feeling bad about the whole Meta Knight's Revenge thing.
  • No Fourth Wall: The characters occasionally berate the author for a number of things, and unlike his earlier stories, he doesn't punish them for this. As a result of the author's laziness, Plot Holes have formed itself into the story. Literally.
    • Further solidified when Giygas order Ridley to kill Hyper's dad to make him a depressed wreck; which changes his mood and the story to the villains advantage.
  • Only Sane Man: Mewtwo is this in a group of psychotic Melee characters. Falco is one in the group of Smashers captured by Giygas.
