Not a great idea

Posted by KingDedede On May - 25 - 2011 Comments Off

All right, I’m willing to admit it. Let’s chalk the “Gourmet Race” up as one of my worst ideas ever. I thought I had everything set up nicely. I figured that my opponent would be distracted by all the food in such obscure places. That would give me a chance to run the straightest path to the goal and grab the moderate amount of stuff that was along the way. I made sure that winning the actual race was worth a lot more than just the food. The thing is, though, for a blob that does nothing but eat and float, Kirby is… a lot faster than you would think. He ate EVERYTHING! AND he won! Look at what it’s done to me! I’m burning a lot of energy out there with no food to make up for it! I must have lost at least 15 pounds since we started.  [ Read More ]

Not a great idea

Posted by Kirby On May - 18 - 2011 Comments Off

Okay… So a Gourmet Race sounded like a good idea at first, but it turns out there’s some problems you wouldn’t think of until you try it… I love the idea of it–you run around and eat as much as you can in a competition. Should be great, right? Well, sometimes you have to eat things so quickly you don’t even get a chance to taste them. And considering how fast I like to eat, that’s saying something! The other problem is that once I eat, I usually like to take a second to… you know, enjoy it? Savor the taste, let it start to digest, stuff like that… You don’t get a chance to do that while you’re racing. Even when you finish, you usually have to go straight to the next race before you get a chance to rest. After the last one, I got sick for the  [ Read More ]

It pays to be a fairy

Posted by Navi On May - 4 - 2011 Comments Off

When you first look at me, you don’t see much, do you? I don’t look like a threat to anyone, and even when I’ve tried to be intimidating and get right in someone’s face, I’ve heard them say it was just like having a bug in their face once my back was turned. (That sort of talk hurts, by the way. Knock it off.) I don’t need to be big or threatening to be useful, though. You non-smalls out there probably never even think about the sorts of things I can do every day. Sure, I’m pretty good about helping you keep an eye on swift creatures that would hurt you, and I can tell you everything you want to know about them (and lots of stuff you didn’t even know you wanted to know, too!), but I can do a lot more than that. See, think like a spy.  [ Read More ]

Backstabbed!

Posted by Sonic On March - 16 - 2011 Comments Off

Crud! I am sooooooo MAD! I can’t stop thinking about that stupid New Pork City fight! I can’t figure it out! Things were going so well at first! I mean, sure, Ness had the upper hand for a while, and there was that Deku Nut incident, but we got that turned around pretty fast. Kirby got off his Final Smash, and we planned it out, so I was able to dodge that no problem. Actually, I kind of suggested that as a ploy. I wanted the food that I knew would come from it to recover from everything that happened so far. That way I’d be able to finish Kirby in short order. I lost sight of him after that, but I had something else on my mind. I’d wanted to use a Pokeball before (when I wound up with a Deku Nut instead), and I still wanted to break  [ Read More ]

Okay, I guess I deserved that…

Posted by Ness On March - 9 - 2011 3 Comments

That fight at New Pork City was quite a fiasco. I was doing great for the first part of it! I managed a hit with a full-power PK Flash, recovered a bunch of damage thanks to a Fire Flower I saw coming, and got a Final Smash in! I even managed to grab a Pokéball from behind Sonic’s back. He thought he had it, but he grabbed a Deku Nut instead. He was pretty close to Kirby when he threw, so they were both left reeling, and I just couldn’t stop myself from laughing. But that was probably a mistake on my part. I was getting some pretty fierce looks from both of them after that, and before I knew it, they were ganging up on me. I’ve… never had a real appreciation for how fast Sonic is until that moment in time. I mean, he doesn’t really have any  [ Read More ]

Didn’t See That Coming…

Posted by Kirby On March - 2 - 2011 Comments Off

Boy, today was not what I expected to happen. I was fighting in New Pork City against Sonic and Ness, and I kept on getting K.Oed most of the time. A funny part about it is that Sonic threw a Deku Nut at me, but he said that he thought it was the Pokeball that he was about to throw. He probably forgot to check, since the items in Brawl appear randomly at the wrong time. Ness started to laugh at us for our mistakes that we caused. Sonic and I both got mad, and he let me use my Final Smash to knock Ness out, and help ourselves with the food coming out of the pot. While I wasn’t looking, however, a weird monster with the yellow birdie on top tried to attack me. I had to dodge very wildly, not knowing the right way to dodge. I tried  [ Read More ]

Fishing Incident

Posted by Link On January - 26 - 2011 Comments Off

I like to think I’m a pretty good fisherman. I caught the record-breaking fish at the local pond, and the owner is pretty good himself. That sounds like it says something. But even pros have mishaps sometimes, and this one almost makes me feel like I never had any idea what I was doing. See, the owner keeps the biggest fish ever caught (mine) in a tank on the front counter. I stood ready to cast, with my back to the counter. Somehow, I let the line go on the back-swing. The owner dodged it like a ninja, but it landed in that tank. If that wasn’t ridiculous enough, the fish took the bait. As a kind of reflex, I jerked on the rod trying to get it out of there. I set the hook by mistake. So now, here I was with my biggest fish ever hooked in a  [ Read More ]

Kicking Your Own Shell?

Posted by Mario On December - 29 - 2010 Comments Off

Well now I’ve seen everything. (Well, not everything everything, but you know what I mean.) I stomped on a Koopa Troopa and knocked him out of his shell. He was right next to a pipe when it happened, so he slid right into it with his shell right next to him. I expected that he would just jump right back into it, but he didn’t. Instead, he just kicked it and sent it rolling! For like, no reason! I wasn’t even in the direction he was kicking it! I can only wonder what might have been going through his head when that happened. Why would you kick your sole source of armor off a cliff when there’s nothing to be gained by it? Maybe he just didn’t have his wits about him yet, and thought I was over there. Maybe he was fed up with his job and getting stomped  [ Read More ]

Lost in the Lair

Posted by Waluigi On May - 12 - 2008 Comments Off

I thought Luigi was the one who got stuck all the time. I’d be willing to venture that being lost inside a structure is the same thing as being stuck there. It started when I was, uh… escaping—I mean, attending, uh, leaving—a business meeting with some locals in the alleys. As I waited around a corner for them to run by, I ran into an old green rapper lady. (I think she was a rapper anyway; she spoke in apparently pre-meditated rhymes.) She showed me a treasure map and said it led to rare stuff that is incredibly difficult to find. I was a bit skeptical that eggs and ice (real ice, not diamonds) were rare treasures, but she assured me that they were really valuable. I bought the map, loaded up some supplies for the trip, and took Wario to the place the map said to start: an old  [ Read More ]

Trapped Again

Posted by Luigi On May - 2 - 2008 Comments Off

I must be having a run of bad luck. First I got stuck in the trapdoor to the basement. Then I got stuck in a castle while rescuing the princess. After that, I wound up stuck in the background plotting revenge against DK. Well, it’s pretty ironic this time. I’m stuck in the trapdoor again. Yeah, the one that goes to the basement. I thought I filled this hole with cement! I mean, yes, evidently I was wrong, but seriously! Do you know what it’s like getting caught in the same impromptu trap twice?! Call it frustrating, aggravating, humiliating, and just not very pretty. I was just catching up on some reading, set the book down to close the window, and BAM! The floor boards on an axle give way beneath my less-than-stellar weight. There’s quite a bit of regret spinning through my mind right now. If I had gotten  [ Read More ]
