Go To

Smashtasm is a Super Smash Bros Machinima series by Shippiddge.

The series takes place in a universe where Super Smash Bros. Melee (and in season two, Super Smash Bros. Brawl) is an online-playable MMORPG. Super64, a newbie to the game, was invited to a "tournament server" by a player named Killa7. But upon arrival to the location, Super64 was attacked from behind and sent to another stage. There, he befriends the user 1337f0x who tells him he got conned—tournaments aren't even a thing, and griefers just use the concept to lure players in and cheap-shot them, increasing their online rank in the process. Super64 decides he has to find Killa7 and knock him down a few pegs...

The first season ran for 10 episodes, released between 2007 and 2008. The second season, filmed in Brawl, spanned 5 episodes released between 2008 and 2012 before it was seemingly abandoned. The entire series can be found here.

More information can be found at the character sheet.


This series has examples of:

  • Alternate Universe: This series has real life characters playing as Super Smash Bros. characters in an online game.
  • Ascended Extra: In season 1, Lamp had a fairly minor role, and was pretty much a Mook, but, in season 2, he takes a more important role.
  • Ax-Crazy: PrincessH.
  • Batman Gambit: The only way to get rid of Greg at the end of Season 1.
  • Big Damn Heroes: The entire cast in episode 10
  • Bilingual Bonus: Greg and l33tfox's full-l33t conversation. Spell out what they're actually saying as opposed to what the subtitles tell you. A few YouTube commenters already have.

  • Calling Your Attacks: "I'MMA FIRIN' MAH LAZOR!"
  • The Chase: Season 1's primary plot.
  • Characterization Marches On:
    • Lamp's character quirks were not as prominent in Season 1 as they are in Season 2.
    • Greg had some aspects of 1337f0x (Leet speak being among them) in Season 1 in his first two appearances, but to perhaps distinguish the two more, later appearances go for a more snarky sense of humor.
  • Cliffhanger: Because of the Orphaned Series example below, season 2 ended on this.
  • Cloud Cuckoolander: Lamp, and to some extent, PrincessH, who also mixes in Ax-Crazy for convenience.
  • Dark Chick: Technically Alan
  • Disc-One Final Boss: Killa7 is pretty much a jerk, but isn't really anybody important.
  • Dumbass Has a Point: In Season 2, Lamp, an unquestionably Cloud Cuckoo Lander-ish character, has an intelligent moment when he tells Super 64 that he should have interrogated the Meta Knight player who knew where 1337f0x was instead of KO'ing him.

  • Evil Twin: The subject of another video.
  • Felony Misdemeanor: Online world of Smash Bros. shutting down by a bunch of crackers? We're all gonna die!
  • Have a Gay Old Time: Faggot - A pile of sticks. If you thought it meant something else, then you are a terrible person. Colon P.
  • Hoist by His Own Petard: In Season 1, Lamp loses a stock in a battle with Super 64 by having his own Charge Shot reflected by Super 64's Cape. His reaction sells the moment.
Lamp: Oh shi...
(Lamp gets hit by his own shot and Star KO'd)
