Tournament Smashers Episode 57 Daredevil vs Phoenix Wright

The 57th episode is now up after a long break!

Matt Murdock took a gulp from his glass of water and silently set it down on the table in front of him. He had taken up this case along with his partner/rival, Foggy Nelson. Foggy had warned Matt that this was a bad idea because the prosecutor was none other than the famous Phoenix Wright. Phoenix Wright had allegedly only lost a single case in his 20+ years of practicing and that was to a shifty foe who went by the name of Charles Xavier. The whole case was enshrouded in mystery and citizens suspected foul play due to Xavier’s ties to the mutants. Matt shook his head. Now was not the time to think about such matters. Wright was good, but Matt knew that he was better! Murdock’s record was fairly impressive as well. He had won a good 70% of his cases, which may sound small, but he won them in Hell’s Kitchen. Matt figured that if he could win cases in the most crooked area of New York City, he could win a case anywhere. This case took place in ABC city and nobody appeared to be bought off. “Will the defendent make their opening remarks now?” the judge commanded from the podium. “Looks like I’m up,” Matt thought as he grabbed his cane and slowly rose.

Phoenix Wright eyed Matt Murdock with an expression of confidence. Wright knew that Matt would lose the case because nobody could hope to overcome Wright’s wall of objections. Wright had studied the case through and through. Matt was defending a guy who went by the name of Reginald Kastle. The charge was that of theft. It was a fairly light act and the kid was a minor so he would likely just get a slap on the wrist so to speak. Matt’s case would likely be that Shark was forced into doing so by the pressure of the situation, but Wright was prepared for every contingency.

“Your honor,” Matt said with a voice that was as crisp as one of Ihop’s traditionally overcooked pancakes. “I move that my client is innocent of all wrong doings as Syrus Truesdale, the kid whose deck was stolen from, has no proof that Kastle took his card beyond the fact that it was found in Kastle’s pocket. This is circumstancial evidence an-,” Matt had been about to finish his sentence, but the resounding roar of Wright’s catchphrase took him by surprise.

“OBJECTION!” Phoenix Wright yelled as he slammed his desk with his full might. He jumped to his feat and pointed his finer at Matt Murdock. In truth, Wright didn’t need to be so theatrical, but it never ceased to amuse him and having fun on the job is what he was all about. “There was nobody in the waiting room aside from Kastle once Syrus went to the locker to get changed. The deck had been left by the couch along with a package of Buddy Rare cards. The security footage shows that Shark walked over to the deck, but his coat obscured the lens and prevented us from seeing if he took the card in question, but there were no other suspects!” Phoenix Wright stated as he sat back down.

“Sustained,” the tired, old judge said as he yawned and lightly tapped his hammer onto the podium. “Fine,” Matt said as he took a step back. Obviously, Wright was already prepared for that trick. Matt had only been using it to buy some time anyway. Thanks to the chemicals that hit him in the eyes and morphed his body into a lethal weapon to hurl at villains, Matt could also tell if someone was lying or not. He knew that Kastle hadn’t stolen the card so he needed to win this round. Letting an innocent person obtain a criminal record was not on Matt’s to do list after all! “I’m blind,” Matt said for the shock value. “I know things that most do not and I talked to all of Kastle’s friends while they were still on Earth and not in another galaxy. They vouch for him,” Matt said as his voice began to waver. Wright hadn’t even bothered to object since the testimony of allies would not fare well in court. “I move that we delay the proceedings until I can gather more data,” Matt said as he pretended to drop his staff. While bending over to pick it up, Matt scanned the room with his “super sight” and noticed that one person was breathing quickly and on the verge of tears. “No,” the judge stated in replay to Matt’s request. “Fine, but then I wish to call to the podium, Luke Benson,” Matt said as he got up. The NFL draft’s theme played as Benson went up to the stage and said the oath. “Benson, don’t lie….you put some glue on the outside of Kastle’s shirt, which made a card stick to it and then pretended to bump into him in the hallway so you could put the card in his deck before the match didn’t you,” Matt said with a commanding voice. While the leap in logic may have sounded big enough to fit a few wars in the crevice, Matt had found out this data through his means as the illegal vigilante known as Daredevil.

“Objection!” Wright yelled as he stood up. “Murdock is intimidating the witness and planting ideas into the heads of the jury,” Wright stated as he pointed his finger at Matt. “Benson’s also clearly not a reliable witness” Wright said while pointing at Benson’s large bags under his eyes. With a drunken face and his tired appearance, Benson looked like he could use some sleep. “Shut up Wright! I’m not the bad guy and I’m doing nothing of the sort,” Matt said as he glared at Wright. “Benson’s lack of sleep will not be an issue in his attempt to remember the truth” Matt replied. Wright’s eyes narrowed. For years he had suspected that Matt was not actually blind. How could he tell that Wright was talking about his lack of sleep and not the fact that Benson was drunk unless he could actually see Wright’s hand. “Can we reasonably assume that such an act happened with no actual proof to back it up?” Wright rhetorically asked the Jury.

“Enough!” The Judge yelled as he slammed his hammer a few more times. “Matt…get on with it. This is not a criminal case and it is merely a mild issue of whether Kastle stole the card or not in order to win the competition,” The Judge explained. “Unless you can prove otherwise, Kastle will have to do some volunteer work for the next few months and will be placed on probation” “I understand sir, and my final piece of evidence is most telling,” Matt said as he clenched his fist. Reaching into his suitcase, he took out a paper. “This is Benson’s journal entry for the day, which was found in the trash,” Matt stated as he gave the paper to the Judge. “It states that he was going to attempt to execute this plan,” Matt continued with a smirk. “OBJECTION. Does it say that he succeeded?” Wright asked the judge. “It does not!” The Judge bellowed as he threw the paper to the ground. “A simple coincidence, but someone would have noticed if Benson had pulled off such a feat and putting glue on Kastle’s jacket before letting the card get stuck to it and then bumping Kastle while reverse pick pocketing the card is simply too elaborate for a drunk,” The Judge said as he raised the hammer. “GUILTY by unanimous vote of the Jury and myself,” The Judge yelled as he slammed the hammer down.

Outside, Wright had a bad feeling about this. He had won the case as expected, but Matt had immediately disappeared over into crime alley. Benson was walking home, but he lived near many convenient dark alleys. Wright decided to walk on over. As he approached Benson’s neighborhood, he heard a gruff voice yelling. “You did steal the card and put Kastle as the fall guy didn’t you!” the guy yelled. “Yeah, what of it,” Benson said with a confident voice even though his knees were knocking. “Whoa there,” Wright said as he hustled over to the alley. “Put him down!” Wright said as he got into a fighting stance. “I’m not the bad guy!” a masked vigilante in a red suit said as he ran at Wright. “Then why are you acting like one?” Wright said as he tripped the guy up with a low kick and then punched him to the ground. “This is where law meets reality and the name’s Daredevil!” Daredevil said as he got up and knocked Wright against a wall. The impact knocked a lot of the fight out of the persecutor as he was not used to physical violence. “If Foggy Nelson had remembered to bring the security footage of Benson taking the card, Matt Murdock could have solved this in court. That didn’t happen so now I’m going to destroy Benson and prove that I’m not the bad guy. Villains get what’s coming to them and I’m the man for the job!” Daredevil howled like a madman as he grabbed a pipe and walked towards Wright. “OBJECTION!” Wright yelled before Daredevil hit him across the stomach. Wright knew that he’d be sore for a few days as he fell unconscious. He had won the case and had proven that he was better at using the court system, but was it really a victory when he was accusing an innocent person? With those thoughts, everything went dark. He would later wake up at Gotham City’s hospital with a few new cases ready for him to read. He would not forget about the man named Daredevil anytime soon and his knowledge that Daredevil was really Matt Murdock would be a secret that he would ultimately carry to the grave. “Wright?” a voice asked. Wright groggily looked up from his bed where he was still recovering in the hospital. “Who are you?” Wright asked the old man with the funny top hat. “They call me Layton…Professor Layton…and I’ve got a little job for you!” the man said with a smile as he took out an alien artifact. “Sounds like fun,” Wright replied with a confident smirk.

Meanwhile with Daredevil, he was thrilled that he had beaten Wright. He couldn’t do it in the legal way, but it was a minor issue. Daredevil had won and that’s all that he cared about. There had been something called the Tournament Smashers competition which would automatically count the spar as a victory for the crime fighter, which would boost his reputation among the criminals. “As for you Benson!” Daredevil yelled as he ran towards the guy. Before he could connect on the hit, Daredevil was thrown off of his feet by a thunder clap. He banged the ground rather hard and felt his staff break. “Fight’s over son,” a calm voice said as Flip appeared. He seemed to have come from the sky, but that was impossible. “Benson comes with me,” Flip said as he grabbed the guy and then gravity seemed to lose its effect on him as he fell upwards into the sky. “I’M NOT THE BAD GUY!” Daredevil yelled as he dramatically threw his staff and went into a sliding crouch. “NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO,” he yelled upwards at the sky as it started to rain. Later that night, he walked home where Foggy Nelson was waiting. “Matt, you sure messed up big time didn’t you?” Foggy said with a condecending tone as he poured Matt a cup of coffee. “No Foggy….you did,” Matt replied solemnly as he sipped his coffee. He hadn’t gotten to finish Benson off, but the guy was off the streets. Wright wouldn’t dare challenge Matt again either. Feeling satisfied, Matt walked to his room and went to bed. At around 3:00AM Daredevil woke up and noticed an evil clown standing by the window. Slowly and silently, Matt reached for the shotgun under his pillow. This clown was about to realize that he had messed with the wrong attorney Matt thought with a grin. “I’m not the bad guy,”

One of my longer Tournament Smasher stories for sure. More may come soon, but I do these rarely as they do take up more time than most of my posts. It was certainly fun to write though and they are heavy with continuity. If Daredevil or Wright appears again, their plot will continue and lead to the next fight. Daredevil’s personality was based off of the new TV show, taking place after season 1. It shows how he is slowly losing his grip on reality and turning insane, borrowing the iconic “I’m not the bad guy” from the movie. Portrayals and personalities are subject to change in future installments although I try to keep the characters relatively in character or at least consistent. As for Wright, it’s mostly from my view of the character as I haven’t actually seen him first hand. Until then!

Tournament Smashers Episode 56 Yagura vs Naruto

The 56th episode is now up!

30 minutes had passed since Naruto’s win against Gaara. Naruto was running through the village in the hopes of finding a new opponent. “I’m gonna be Hokage!!!” Naruto yelled as he kept going. Suddenly he felt a powerful aura and looked below him. A kid was there and he noticed Naruto. Suddenly he dissappeared and reappeared behind Naruto. “No way!” Naruto yelled as the kid threw a solid punch that knocked Naruto to the ground.

Naruto threw a kunai at him, but the kid dodged and threw a Demon Wind Shuriken. Naruto entered Sage Mode and he quickly caught the kunai. “Enough of that,” Naruto said as he formed a Rasengan. “Perfect!” The kid said as he formed a water mirror. Naruto’s Rasengan banged the mirror, but the excess energy struck Naruto. “Gak,” Naruto grimaced as he hit the ground. “You can’t win Naruto, I am the legendary Yagura!” Yagura said as a weapon started to form. “What is that!” Naruto yelled as it looked like a staff, but it was uneven. “It will be your downfall,” Yagura said as he jumped after Naruto. “If that hits me, this could be Game Over!” Naruto thought as he jumped in the air to face Yagura.

Yagura readied his staff and Naruto took out a pair of kunai. “Twin Blade Style, Dragon’s Cut!” Naruto yelled as he slashed at Yagura. Yagura blocked the two attacks with his staff and deflected them to the trees. “Not good, I’m wide open!” Naruto yelled as Yagura readied himself. He slashed at Naruto and sent him crashing to the ground. “No,” Naruto said as he bounced off of a water mirror which sent him flying back up towards Yagura. “This ends now!” Yagura said as he thrust his staff at Naruto. Naruto quickly formed a Rasenshuriken and blocked the staff. The energy disintegrated the staff and Yagura quickly jumped backwards. “Not good enough!” Naruto yelled as he threw his Rasenshuriken at Yagura. Yagura quickly formed a Water Mirror which reflected the attack back at Naruto. Naruto quickly rolled out of the way as the Rasenshuriken shattered a mountain behind him.

“You’re not bad Yagura, but I think it’s time to show you what true power is,” Naruto said as he grinned. “What’s that supposed to mean?” Yagura said as he charged at Naruto. “Can I just say one thing?” Naruto asked as Yagura charged at him. “No, just die!” Yagura yelled as he charged at Naruto. Yagura tackled him into a tree. “Who are you?” Yagura yelled as he tried to stab Naruto. Naruto blocked the kunai and pushed Yagura away. “I’m Naruto and I’m gonna be Hokage!” Naruto yelled as he formed a Rasengan. “There’s not enough time to dodge,” Yagura yelled as Naruto charged at him. “RASENGAN!” Naruto yelled as he hit Yagura. “This can’t be happening!” Yagura said as the Rasengan blew up the tree and knocked Yagura to the ground.

“Finish me,” Yagura said as he struggled to get up. “No…besides, I have something that I need to do,” Naruto said as he got up and entered his 9 Tails mode. (His Berserk 9 Tails mode, so not the full transformation, but the one that he used against Haku) Naruto charged towards a castle. “You won’t get away!” he yelled as he stormed in. Meanwhile, Yagura got up. “Naruto Uzumaki eh? A pretty tough guy,” Yagura said as he started to walk away. He felt like someone had been slightly influencing him throughout the fight. Enhancing his abilities and making him seem like more of a villain. Yagura didn’t have time to worry about any of that, he just wanted to go home and have a nice supper.

Tournament Smashers Episode 55 Robin (Animal) vs Robin

The next battle is now here!

Robin was looking through some files in the Batcave. “Phoney Baloney! If I don’t get these files to Batman’s desk by morning, I won’t get to go to the arcade!” Robin complained as he shuffled through the files. “Whoops,” Robin said as he dropped one of the papers to the ground. He reached out to grab it, but then a bird grabbed it and flew away.

“Running Raptoids! A Robin has stolen the files!” Robin yelled as he chased after the bird. The Robin flew off into the sky and headed for Metropolis. “No you don’t!” Robin yelled as he gave chase. He wasn’t going to let this Robin outshine him. Robin shot out a grappling hook and hurled himself onto the Daily Planet. He reached for the paper, but the Robin did a barrell roll and evaded him. “Not bad,” Robin said as the Robin elbowed him as he flew past.

Robin was falling to the ground, but he quickly shot out another grappling hook so that he could swing to safety. This bird was obviously a mastermind and if he was given enough prep time…it would be over! Robin quickly shook his head and cleared out those thoughts. “He’s just a Robin,” Robin exclaimed as he jumped into the air. From behind, the Robin pecked him.

Robin fell to the ground and reached for a bird cage, but the Robin was too fast for him and flew back into the air. Robin gave chase, but the Robin went into a store. Robin jumped in, but Security Guards quickly grabbed him. “Don’t even try it,” they said as Robin reached for his staff.

“I can’t lose!” Robin yelled as he swung at one of the guards and knocked him over. “That was a pretty impressive swing,” the 2nd guard said as he took out a baton. He swung at Robin, but Robin parried and punched the guard to the ground. “Fight’s over son,” a voice said as the Justice League appeared. “Not….quite…yet,” Robin said as he threw a smoke bomb.

He heard the JLA coughing and he quickly exited the store. “This just got personal,” Robin said as he took out a giant bazooka. He pointed it at the sky and fired. A bird cage came out and grew wings. “It’s time to capture a Robin!” Robin yelled as he put on a booster pack. “Robin go!” Robin yelled as he zoomed around the world.

Hours later, Robin saw the Robin. “Eat this,” Robin yelled as he opened the cage. The Robin dodged and tackled Robin. They fell into a barn. “That was some tackle,” Robin said as he shook his head. The Robin hit Robin in the face with a frying pan. “Snap!” Robin yelled as he hit the ground. The Robin started throwing a lot of plates and straw at Robin. “I can’t take much more!” Robin yelled as he pressed a button.

From behind the Robin, a cage appeared and closed around him. “I finally captured him,” Robin said as he picked the cage up. “Nice try, but you’re going to Arkham,” Robin said as he headed there. On his way to the prison, Robin was grabbed from behind. “Hey!” Robin yelled as the Robin took this opportunity to break the cage open and fly away. “Chase him,” Robin’s attacker said as someone flew after the Robin. “This can’t be!” Robin yelled as he took out a bomb.

Tournament Smashers Episode 54 Ichigo vs One Above All

The 54th battle is here, with the return of the One Above All.

“Wake up,” Professor E Gadd said as he poked The One Above All with a thunder stick. “Foolishness!” The One Above All said as he opened his eyes and stood up. “I am everywhere and yet nowhere….I am awake and yet asleep,” he clarified as he looked around. He was trapped in a small hut. “What am I doing here,” he wondered aloud. “After your humiliating and crushing defeat at the hands of Son Goku, I took your remains and brought them here,” E Gadd stated as he looked at the door.

“Why have you brought me here!?” The One Above All as he clenched his fist. “You are bait, for the one they call…The Substitute Soul Reaper!” Professor E Gadd laughed as he prepared himself. “Fool, I will not be used in your petty games of revenge,” The One Above All said as he started spreading into an infinite form of energy. “You don’t have a choice anymore,” Professor E Gadd said as he pressed a button and a trap door opened. “I’ll be hiding down here while you are fighting,” he said as he fell inside.

Ichigo Kurosaki was a Substitute Soul Reaper. He liked to defeat a couple dozen hollows a day to stay in shape, but it had been rather boring. He had heard about the legendary Tournament Smashers competition, but nobody had challenged him. He could go pick a fight with someone, but it wasn’t worth his time. Ichigo would just find some other way to pass the time. Suddenly he felt a massive spike of power. “It’s at Luigi’s Mansion!” Ichigo yelled as his clothes changed into Soul Reaper attire. This happened when things were about to get real!

Ichigo zoomed off at supersonic speeds. He could break the light barrier, but there was always the risk that he would decimate a country or two while doing it. Ichigo saw a being made of light floating over the house. “Getsuga Tenshou!” Ichigo yelled as he fired a large shockwave. The blast went right through the One Above All and scattered some of his energies.

The One Above All turned to Ichigo. “So insignificant!” he thought as he raised his hand. Buu appeared and charged at Ichigo. “What!? Ichigo yelled as he blocked Buu’s punch, but the force sent him into the ground. “I don’t know what you’re doing here, but I’ll stop you!” Ichigo yelled as he dashed towards Buu. Buu fired a ki blast, but Ichigo sidestepped and hit Buu with a direct Getsuga Tenshou. Buu hit the ground, but turned into Sensui and fired another blast.

Ichigo hit the ground. From behind Superman grabbed him. “Fight’s over son,” he said as he reached for Ichigo’s sword. “I don’t think so, BANKAI!” Ichigo yelled as he transformed. “What power!” The One Above All exclaimed as he flew towards Ichigo. “Getsuga Tenshou!” Ichigo yelled as he fired a blast of dark energy. The One Above All reached out and blocked the blast, but his arm evaporated. “Fool, you can’t comprehend my power,” The One Above All said as he reformed and grew larger.

His body turned into thousands of heroes as they ran at Ichigo. “I don’t need to comprehend your power, to defeat you!” Ichigo yelled as he charged at The One Above All. He slashed past Naruto and kicked Captain America into Donald Duck. His sheer power knocked the others away as he slashed The One Above All.

“This can’t be, my power is absolute!” he yelled as he backed up a bit. “Reality Warping won’t get you anywhere,” Ichigo said as his hollow mask materialized. “This is the end,” Ichigo said as his sword glowed with power. He charged at The One Above All for the last time. The One Above All’s hand turned into a large cannon and he fired an immensely powerful blast. “No you don’t!” Ichigo yelled as his sword blocked the blast, but halted his progress. “I won’t be stopped here!” Ichigo yelled as he broke through and slashed The One Above All.

The One Above All hit the ground. “This can’t be,” he said as his energies scattered across the cosmos. “Let this be a warning,” Ichigo said as he turned back to human form. Omnipresent and Omnipotent beings will never amount to a well placed Getsuga Tenshou,” he said as he turned away and walked back to school. As long as nobody had reality warped his favorite chair, the day would be epic. Then he noticed that smoke was coming from his school. “Not again!” he yelled as he quickened his pace.

Tournament Smashers Episode 53 Bobobobo Bobobo vs Luffy

The 53rd battle is now up!

Luffy was on the Going Merry along with the rest of the Strawhats. “This is so cool!” Tony Tony (The) Chopper yelled for no reason as he ran to the front of the ship. “Watch where you’re going!” Nami yelled as she got up from her chair and went back in the cabin. Now she wouldn’t have to deal with the madness! Zoro figured that he should stop Chopper before something drastic happened, but he fell asleep before he could do anything.

Sanji ran to the kitchen to cook, but in his excitement, he didn’t notice the banana peel that Franky had left. “Whoops!” Franky yelled as Sanji tripped over it and they both fell in the basement. Brook tried to run, but he was smashed to pieces. “This is what I get for working with Pirates,” Usopp grumbled as he worked on improving his slingshot. Chopper kept running, but he banged his head on the rails and fell into the ocean. “CHOPPER!” Luffy yelled as he jumped in after him. Once he hit the water, Luffy’s body froze up. His Devil Fruit powers were useless in water and his body also became paralyzed.

If Luffy focused enough power, he could move a little bit, but not much. Luffy would have just let his Nakama save him like usual, but he needed to save Chopper! Luffy gathered up his strength and shot out his arm. Grabbing Chopper, Luffy threw him back into the ship and then let himself faint from exhaustion.

He woke up hours later on an island. “This can’t be right, but it’s so cool!” Luffy yelled as he watched someone with a yellow Afro kick an arcade machine into the air and then he ate it. “Hey Afroman, what are you doing?” Luffy asked as he approached the fellow.

“That’s a silly question,” Bobobobo Bobobo said as he punched Luffy through a tree. “Was not!” Luffy yelled as he shot out his punch. His arm stretched and knocked Bobobobo Bobobo to the ground. Finally, Luffy’s arm wrapped around Bobobobo Bobobo. “You’ve eaten a Devil Fruit!” Bobobobo Bobobo yelled as he struggled to break free. “That’s right, I’m a Rubberman,” Luffy explained. He had explained this hundreds of times in the past, so he was pretty good at it.

“Why you!” Bobobobo Bobobo said as he started powering up. “HAAAAAAAA” Bobobobo Bobobo yelled as he kept on powering up. “What are you doing?” Luffy asked as he let Bobobobo Bobobo go. “HAAAAA!” Bobobobo Bobobo yelled as he flexed his muscles. “I made you let me go, didn’t I?” Bobobobo Bobobo laughed as he got up. “End of the road Luffy,” Bobobobo Bobobo chuckled as he walked towards Luffy.

“What?” Luffy said as he sidestepped Bobobobo Bobobo’s punch. Bobobobo Bobobo threw many punches at Luffy, but Luffy dodged them all. “Gum Gum Punch!” Luffy yelled as he shot a solid punch. It knocked Bobobobo Bobobo into the water. “Aw Yeah!” Luffy yelled as he jumped in after him. “Whoops,” he thought as Bobobobo Bobobo punched him to the ocean floor. “Can’t move so well in here, now can you?” Bobobobo Bobobo laughed as he kicked Luffy. “I’m not done yet!” Luffy yelled as he pulled back his arms.

“Gum Gum Twister!” Luffy yelled as his arms started spinning. “Chocolate Snaps!” Bobobobo Bobobo yelled as the water all got pulled into the tornado and shot away. “You just evaporated an entire ocean!” Bobobobo Bobobo yelled in horror. “That’s right,” Luffy replied as he ran towards Bobobobo Bobobo. Bobobobo Bobobo jumped towards him, but Luffy sidestepped and knocked him to the ground. “Any last words,” Luffy said as smoke started coming out of him. “Yeah, you haven’t seen the last of me!” Bobobobo Bobobo yelled as he flew off. He would need to hide in Gotham for a few days!

“That was fun,” Luffy said as he turned back to where the Going Merry was. All of his Nakama were waiting for him. Luffy knew that he would become the Pirate King of legend! “YEAHHHHH!” Luffy yelled as he jumped in the air and stretched his arm out to incredible lengths. He grabbed the ship at last and pulled himself on. “GUYS, I’m Back!” Luffy laughed as he shot his fist into the air. “You are, but not your Nakama,” a voice said as someone walked towards Luffy. “Don’t mess with me!” Luffy yelled as he ran towards the opponent and threw a planet busting punch at him. The opponent caught his punch and laughed. “End of the road….Monkey D. Luffy!”

Tournament Smashers Episode 52 Iihiko vs Superman

The 52nd Battle is now up!

“This can’t be happening!” a guard yelled as he fired some bullets in the air. He knew that he only chance was for backup to arrive and fast! “Hahahahaha,” a voice laughed as the being approached the officer. “Don’t take another step,” the guard yelled as he pivoted and sprinted towards an abandoned warehouse. The door creaked as he opened it and the boards seemed to crack with every step.

“I think I lost him,” the guard said as he sat down. That had been a pretty tough chase, but not even Iihiko would dare go in an abandoned warehouse! “Boo,” a voice said as Iihiko appeared. “SUPERMAN!” the guard yelled as he threw his gun at Iihiko. The gun bounced off of him and hit the ground.

Meanwhile, Clark Kent was eating a hot dog at home. “That Kent is so lazy,” he heard the neighbors outside muttering. “If only they knew that mild mannered Clark Kent, was actually Superman,” Kent said aloud as he turned on the TV. Suddenly he heard someone yell, “SUPERMAN!!!!” “This sounds like a job for Superman,” Clark said as his clothes transformed into his kryptonian attire. He had heard that this brand new 52 suit was all the rage nowadays and he wanted to give it a shot.

He dashed towards the sound of the voice and he saw a demon grabbing the guard. “Fight’s over son,” Superman said as he landed and placed his hand on Iihiko’s shoulder. “I’m going to take you to the proper authorities,” Superman said as he struggled to make Iihiko unhand the guard. “You are so weak,” Iihiko said as he let go of the guard and grabbed Superman.

“Unhand me,” Superman responded as he struggled to break free. Iihiko’s grip felt like iron around Superman and he knew that his efforts were futile. “What do you want with Metropolis!” Superman yelled as Iihiko threw him to the ground. “To prove my superiority and destroy all of you inferior life forms,” Iihiko said as he disappeared. “What speed!” Superman yelled as Iihiko appeared behind him and punched him through a building.

“One more punch like that, and I think that I’m a goner,” Superman thought as he quickly activated his JLA comm. “Guys…I need a bit of assistance,” Superman said into the communicator as he waited for a response. “I’m afraid that your signal won’t get through,” Iihiko laughed as he walked towards Superman. “You monster!” Superman yelled as he zoomed towards Iihiko at massively faster than light speeds.

“Tut tut Superman, you know better than to fly at those kinds of speeds on Earth,” Iihiko said as he stepped on Superman in mid flight. “Impossible!” Superman yelled as Iihiko kicked him to the ground. Superman struggled to get up, but Iihiko knocked him back down again.

“You haven’t beaten me,” Superman yelled as he shot a blast of heat from his eyes. Iihiko walked through it and grabbed Superman. “Unhand me!” Superman yelled. He figured that Iihiko would have to listen to him this time. Iihiko laughed and threw Superman in the air. “Such force, I can’t escape!” Superman yelled as he began to fall.

Iihiko was charging up a super punch. “At least I won’t get to feel it,” Superman thought as he lost consciousness. “End of the road Superman,” Iihiko said as he shot out his punch. The shockwave blew the planet up and then blew it back together in an instant. Superman was disintegrated in an instant. “This is the fate of all those who oppose me!” Iihiko laughed as he went off to terrorize other cities. Nobody would be able to stop him!

Meanwhile, Superman was in the Netherworld. “Somehow, I don’t think I’m in Smallville anymore,” Superman nervously said to himself as the zombies started walking towards him. “Don’t mess with me!” Superman yelled as he ran towards them. He would show them why he’s called the Man of Steel!

Tournament Smashers Episode 51 Dark Vader vs Didact

The 51st battle is now up!

Dark Vader was sitting atop his throne in the Death Star. “How long until we are at Ganon’s Fortress?” Dark Vader yelled at the Storm Trooper who was manning the controls. “Only a few more hours…Sir!” The Storm Trooper declared as he put the ship on full turbo. Suddenly a blast hit the Death Star and caused the ship to wobble. “BATTLE STATIONS!” a Storm Trooper yelled as he ran for the engine room.

The Engine Room blew up, which knocked all of the storm troopers into the escape pods. “Best of luck, Dark Vader,” they declared as the escape pods were shut off. “Foolishness!” Dark Vader yelled as he stood up and drew his light saber. “You’ve grown weak, Dark Vader,” Didact laughed as he appeared from the shadows. “Defend yourself,” Dark Vader declared as he slashed at Didact.

Didact stretched out his arm and Dark Vader felt a force pushing him back. “You can control, The Force!” Dark Vader said as he stretched out his arm as well and blocked The Force. “I prefer to call it, telekinesis,” Didact replied as he stretched out both arms. Dark Vader jumped towards Didact and prepared to deal the finishing strike. Didact rolled to the side and and punched Dark Vader to the ground.

“Impressive,” Dark Vader said as he got back up. “Knock me down, and I’ll come back a thousand times stronger,” Dark Vader bluffed as he readied his light saber. “I don’t believe that for a second!” Didact said as he charged at Dark Vader. Didact shot out another punch, but Dark Vader blocked with his light saber. Dark Vader took the chance to quickly punch Didact to the ground.

“You’re fast, but not fast enough,” Didact said as he took out a laser gun. “I grow weary of these annoyances,” Dark Vader declared as he emitted a strong burst of Force. It knocked Didact backwards and he dropped the gun. Didact jumped towards Dark Vader and used a roundhouse kick. Dark Vader ducked the blow and swung his sword upwards. Didact was no longer there and punched Dark Vader from behind. Dark Vader rolled with the blow and shot another blast of Force, which pinned Didact to the wall.

Didact used his telekinesis to free himself and fell to the ground just as Dark Vader’s light saber stabbed the wall. “You’re pretty quick,” Didact stated as he pressed a button. A hovercraft appeared and Didact grabbed hold of it as it started to fly away. “Until we meet again!” Didact yelled as the craft started gaining speed. “Not quite,” Dark Vader replied as he stopped the craft from moving with The Force. “The Force is too strong!” Didact yelled as he jumped off of the craft, but he was now wielding a gun.

“Take this!” Didact yelled as he fired off several energy blasts. Dark Vader parried them all with his light saber and even sent two of them back at Didact with The Force. Didact hit the ground, but quickly jumped back up. It wasn’t his best move, as Dark Vader grabbed him and threw Didact into the air. “I may have lost this round, but I’ll be back,” Didact declared as Dark Vader slashed him through the Death Star and into the dark void of space.

“That was a large waste of time,” Dark Vader said as he walked back to his throne. The Death Star was beyond repair and it wouldn’t hold up for long. Dark Vader would need to quickly land on a random planet and hope that they had advanced tech to repair the ship. He could sense some powerful life forms on the planet and he felt excited.

Tournament Smashers Episode 50 Godzilla vs Superman

The 50th battle is now upon us!

Superman hit the ground hard and crashed through the railroad tracks. He had barely seen the blue energy blast that had knocked him to the ground. Judging from the trajectory, the beam had been shot from a quarter of the planet away. Also…it blew up a volcano! Realizing this, Superman flew out from underground at mach speed and quickly grabbed a lot of bricks from a supply store. He uses his super speed to place them around the broken volcano and then melted them with his heat vision. “That should be the end of that,” Superman declared as he landed on the ground.

“Superman!” a lot of civilians yelled as they ran towards him. “Now guys, what seems to be the problem?” Superman asked as he sat down. He knew that this could be a long story. “GOJIRA!!!” one of them yelled as his knees buckles and he hit the ground. “Gojira’s just a myth son,” Superman said in a very condescending tone as he prepared to fly away. “Does the word…GODZILLA mean anything to you,” another civilian said he backed up. “I’ve gotta go,” Superman said as he flew off into the sky. Those words had troubled him. Legends claimed that Godzilla was a legendary monster to have been buried under ice nearly 60 years ago, if he had returned…Superman knew that he would find answers on TV. He went home and turned on the 6:00 clock news.

Meanwhile, Godzilla was roaring. He had blown up a volcano, but it still wasn’t exciting enough for him. He wanted to celebrate his victory over King Kong, but how would he do it? Suddenly Godzilla knew what he would do! Godzilla headed off to the local Super Smash dojo. He would be sure to find a lot of fighters to defeat over there and it was always fun to beat new people in a fight.

“Great Scott!” Superman yelled as he crushed his TV. Godzilla needed to be stopped and only Superman could pull it off. “Clark, don’t move,” Perry White yelled as Jimmy and Lois ran in. “Shinigami are attacking france!” Jimmy yelled. “Vandels have conquered Europe!” Lois exclaimed. “I need a coffee!” Perry White yelled as he backed up. “Sorry guys, but I don’t have time for all of that,” Superman said as he left and ran into a telephone booth. “This looks like a job for Superman,” he said out loud as he quickly changed.

Superman flew at top speed and made it to Godzilla in seconds. “Fight’s over son,” Superman said as he placed his hand on Godzilla’s shoulder. Godzilla turned around with impressive speed and backhanded Superman through a building. “So much for doing things the easy way!” Superman said as he got up and charged at Godzilla.

Godzilla roared and fired a blast of Atomic Radiation. “My gosh!” Superman thought as the blast knocked him into the ground. He would have dodged, but the radiation would have fried everyone in the area. “No more Mr Nice-Superman was interrupted as Godzilla grabbed him. Godzilla roared and he threw Superman into the sun.

“Not bad, but now let’s see how good your defense is,” Superman said as he flew out of the sun and headed for Godzilla. Godzilla fired off another blast of atomic radiation, but Superman dodged and quickly fired off a super punch. The force of the blow knocked Godzilla off balance and he hit the ground hard. “Had enough?” Superman asked as he slowly walked towards Godzilla.

“Not quite yet I see!” Superman yelled as he got hit by Godzilla’s tail. Superman stopped himself before he could crash through another building. Suddenly another blast of atomic radiation hit Superman. Superman fell to the ground and then Godzilla stomped on him. Superman lifted Godzilla and threw him backwards. Then he grabbed a skyscraper and he used it as a muzzle for Godzilla. “I’ve had just about enough of the radiation blasts,” Superman said as he prepared to take Godzilla into custody.

Godzilla fired off another blast of Atomic Radiation and the skyscraper muzzle melted. “My gosh!” Superman yelled as he got blasted into the air. Godzilla’s atomic radiation turned into a redish color and his spikes grew a little sharper. “Superman, watch out!” a bird yelled as the red blast hit Superman. “Feels like kryptonite,” Superman exclaimed as he hit the ground.

Superman stayed down as he pondered his next move. None of Godzilla’s attacks had actually hurt him yet, but he knew that he should end this before things got ugly. There were too many civilians in the area for him to let Godzilla keep pounding away at him. He had thought that Godzilla would get tired if Superman just let him take a lot of free shots, but that didn’t appear to be the case.

Superman flew into the air and faced Godzilla. “Play time’s over,” Superman said as he clenched his fist. Godzilla fired off another energy blast, but Superman blocked it with one outstretched arm. “It’s time that you went to jail,” Superman said as he appeared behind Godzilla. Before Godzilla could react, Superman knocked him to the ground. Godzilla was knocked out, but Superman quickly wrapped him in Adamantium, Z metal, and the alloy that Superman used for his cape. “This should hold him,” Superman said as he brought Godzilla to the local prison.

“We’ll take it from here Superman,” the guards said as they moved in. “Not quite,” Superman said as he smirked and flew to the air. “I wonder what he meant,” the guard said as he walked over to Godzilla. Superman appeared again with a giant trampoline. He put Godzilla on it and then pressed a button.

Godzilla was launched into outer space. “I’ve perfectly angled the throw so that he lands on Zilla Planet,” Superman grinned as he flew away. Godzilla could finally have happy adventures among his own kind and now Superman could go back home and have a Hot Dog with Ketchup.

Tournament Smashers Episode 49 Ultra Humanite vs Power Girl

The next battle has now arrived.

Ultra Humanite was in his lab. He had been working on creating a cannon that could turn metal into Jelly Beans. He knew that the world would be baffled at his genius and they would have to give him to Nobel prize. The plan was so full proof that Ultra Humanite didn’t even bother to hide the cannon. He was building it on top of Duel Academy. “Call in the marines!” he heard Crowler yell.

Ultra Humanite knew that other fighters would soon be upon him, but he has no time for them. This cannon was the result of more than two months of worksmanship. He lifted the completed cannon and fired it into the distance. It knocked over a food cart, but the cart didn’t turn into a Jelly Bean. “It must’ve been plastic!” Ultra Humanite thought aloud as he pointed his cannon into the sky.

Power Girl was flying towards Ultra Humanite at mach speed from the direction of the food cart. She had been about to get a Chili Dog, but now that wouldn’t be happening. She knew that the Ultra Humanite must be stopped before he could do any more damage. He fired a blast at her, but Power Girl swerved to the right as she continued her flight towards Ultra Humanite.

“Rats,” Ultra Humanite yelled as he jumped off of the building and headed inside. Power Girl shattered the ceiling above him, but Ultra Humanite fired his cannon again. Power Girl dodged and rammed Ultra Humanite into the classroom. “Hey!” Jaden yelled as they crashed through a window and out of the school.

Power Girl punched Ultra Humanite into a tree which caused him to drop the cannon. “You haven’t beaten me,” Ultra Humanite yelled as he threw a couple of explosive discs. “Getting desperate are we?” Power Girl sneered as the explosive discs bounced off of her. “Impossible!” Ultra Humanite yelled as he threw a solid punch at Power Girl. Power Girl sidestepped the blow and kicked Ultra Humanite to the ground.

Ultra Humanite quickly took out his power gloves, but Power Girl spun around, making a tornado that blew the gloves away and zapped a lot of Ultra Humanite’s energy as he struggled to escape it. Ultra Humanite used the wind’s distraction as the perfect time to jump in his old spaceship. “To Mars!” he yelled as the ship took off.

“Ultra Humanite’s getting away!” Power Girl exclaimed as she gave chase. She overtook the ship in an instant and took hold of it. “Let it go!” Ultra Humanite yelled as he pressed a button to electrocute the ship. “Good thing I’m wearing gloves,” Power Girl said as she dragged the ship back to the ground. “Give it up Ultra Humanite,” Power Girl said as she smirked. Superman had told her that smirking is essential to crushing a villain’s spirit.

“I can’t lose!” Ultra Humanite yelled as he lunged at Power Girl. Power Girl punched him to the ground with a solid hay maker. Ultra Humanite wouldn’t be getting up again after that hit, so Power Girl took him to the proper authorities. “Lock him up,” Power Girl declared as she headed back to the Chili Dog vendor. The guy had already fixed his cart. “That’ll be 3:50 for a Chili Dog,” The guy said without batting an eye. He had witnessed the fight, but he wasn’t the type to give a hero a free meal for doing what he considered to be Civic Duty. Power Girl paid up and left to enjoy her Chili Dog. She had won her first battle in the tournament! Meanwhile Ultra Humanite was taken away to Metropolis’s best prison, where they planned to lock him up for years to come.

Tournament Smashers Episode 48 Superman Prime vs Vegeta

The next battle is now upon us!

Superman Prime was punching out every mirror that he could find. He figured that eventually he would find the mirror that connected all of reality once more. In the past he had shattered it and completely changed the past of the whole multiverse. Now that the multiverse had grown and spread out into many more universes, Superman Prime was ready to destroy them all.

He quickly punched a mirror so hard that whole buildings shattered. The occupants calmly evacuated the city and then went about their business as usual. Superman Prime roared with power and prepared to fly around so quickly that the Earth would fall out of orbit. “Enough, you bore me with your pitiful display of power,” Vegeta sneered as he landed in front of Superman Prime. “Why I oughta…..” Superman Prime complained as he whipped his arm back and prepared to deliver a devastating punch. Vegeta punched Superman Prime to the ground before he could release the shot.

“How’d you do that?” Superman Prime asked as he got back up. That punch had hurt more than the time Superman Prime has gotten in the middle of 2 Super Stars exploding. “I’m a Saiyan elite!” Vegeta answered, since that phrase was always enough to make his opponent tremble with fear. As always, the line worked. Superman Prime started to backup. “If Goku’s only a Saiyan who was raised on Earth…then your power must be insane!” Superman Prime yelled as he flew away at top speed. “Not so fast,” Vegeta said as he flew past Prime and stopped in front of him. “Goku managed to defeat Superman and I hear that you’re much stronger than him,” Vegeta started as he powered up. “Yeah, I’m at least 3X stronger than that kryptonian, but what of it?” Superman Prime declared as he backed up a little.

“Then I’m going to defeat you and claim my first victory in the Tournament Smashers!” Vegeta exclaimed as he punched Superman Prime into the earth. Superman Prime didn’t want to get up, but Vegeta’s rapidly approaching figure made him change his mind. Superman Prime jumped out of the way and he shot a solid blast of Heat Vision. The blast didn’t seem to affect Vegeta as he grabbed Superman Prime and punched him to the ground. Prime got back up and threw a good punch, but Vegeta parried the attack and kicked him into the air.

Superman Prime shot another round of Heat Vision, but Vegeta just flew right through it and punched Prime even higher into the air. Superman Prime knew that he would lose if he got hit by a few more shots and he quickly charged all of his energy into one last punch. As Vegeta approached him, Superman Prime let lose with a solid attack. Vegeta saw the shockwave that came from the punch and he could easily dodge it, but it would end up tearing a hole straight through earth and most likely rip a hole in the fabric of reality. Vegeta quickly started charging up his Final Flash. His hair transformed from black to golden yellow. “FINAL FLASH!” Vegeta yelled as he fired a large yellow beam that enveloped the shockwave and kept on going to Superman Prime. “NOOOOOOO!” Superman Prime yelled as the beam hit him.

Superman Prime rolled with the hit and then put on his full speed. He couldn’t win this round, but perhaps he could escape. Superman Prime navigated through mountains and a lot of other tough terrain in the hopes that it would slow Vegeta down. He had no luck and Vegeta just flew right into all of the obstacles. They shattered upon contact and Vegeta was catching up with him.

“I won’t go down!” Superman Prime yelled as he quickly changed course and flew straight up. Vegeta gave pursuit and charged up an energy ball in one hand. While flying, Vegeta released the attack and it hit Superman Prime. Prime was blasted up and it also increased his speed. He fell into the sun and then the sun started to shake. “SUCH POWER!” Superman Prime yelled as he flew out of the sun.

“My power is invincible!” Superman Prime exclaimed as he punched Vegeta with all of his might. His arm broke and then Vegeta grabbed him. “Let me show you a real punch,” he said as he punched Superman Prime all the way to the moon. The blow knocked Superman Prime out immediately. Satisfied that he had won the round, Vegeta headed back to earth. He was ready for a feast befitting a man of his position. Later on, Superman Prime woke up. “What happened?” He wondered as he flew off into the distance. All he knew was that he was still invincible and that last battle must’ve been a nasty dream. Superman Prime saw a golden warrior flying away. “I’ve got to catch him!” Superman Prime thought as he gave pursuit.
