Welcome, fellow warriors of the fray, to Super Smash Brothers: LIFE ITSELF!
We are the original SSB RP forum, and are a dedicated, friendly, community.
Years after the Subspace Emissary collapse, a mysterious explosion forced Nintendo Universes to a planet called Li.
A mystical force is said to be the cause of bringing everyone into a trap of noxious gas known as Starvia.
It is up to the new Smash Brothers of Li to step up and change the world through their actions.
Will you make the right choice?

“I don’t think there’s anyway I can put this lightly, the Life Sphere is experiencing a full scale epidemic, and its not Starvia, we know how to deal with that, but this, this is something far beyond what we’ve seen from the Starvia.
In three major sectors of the Life Sphere, we have been hit by three different plague creatures, each of them citizens of the Life Sphere that were perfectly healthy until about an hour ago. Something about them fundamentally changed internally. They started to leak out this strange gaseous substance, yellow in colour. It just seeps inside of you, infects you like Starvia, but its effects on your mind and body… well… it isn’t good to put it bluntly.
The Starvia was made for control, to make you a slave to the Shadow bugs’ will. This… new strain, this mutated version of Starvia, its designed to infect and that’s it. Your body just spews out more of it constantly, using every ounce of your body’s power to spread infection until there’s nothing left of you. This virus is specifically designed to wipe us out as quickly as possible.”
“Ho ho ho, indeed. It seems to be that Mother Brain isn’t interested in playing games anymore. She’s done with our meddling and it seems like she’s called for our extinction. My my, this is quite troubling. Can’t fight ’em either, any type of contact with these infected creatures will just produce more infectious spores. Best we can do is keep ‘em at bay with fire, they don’t seem to like the stuff! Deary me, what do we do against an enemy we can’t fight with our fists?”
“With all due respect, professor, this is a serious matter.”
“I am being serious. But please, tell the kind folks at home your proposal.”
“Well… After cross examining the genetic makeup of the civilians that Ima, Mr. Game & Watch, and Volga rescued from one of the creatures, I found something very familiar. The makeup of this version of the Starvia is vastly different from the version we’re used to dealing with, but it is very similar to the formula that we recovered from Black Shadow’s lab way back when he captured the Life Sphere leaders. It is an early blueprint of this strain; thus, we can make a counter virus.”
“And the problem?”
“We can’t just make it from scratch. This version of the Starvia is way too volatile to reverse engineer. Any attempts we’ve made to do so has ended up with our staff becoming infected, and we can’t afford to lose anymore of our Starvia expert staff. We need samples of divergent Starvia compounds, this version of the Starvia is highly infectious, but it was designed to be supressed by other forms of Starvia, likely so that if the infection were to spread outside of the Life Sphere it could be easily quashed by Mother Brain’s forces and prevent a worldwide extinction event. The problem is, the only sample of the Starvia we have on hand is the base version. All of the divergent samples have been lost to time.”
“Lost to time, you say?”
“Yes, Galacta Knight’s special Starvia concoction was lost after the defeat of King Hippo, whatever Vivi was lost after Sonic, er… I guess Mephiles cured him, and there was bound to be some kind of early sample of this same virus back when Captain Falcon and company invaded Black Shadow’s base.”
“Oh ho ho! Time is just an obstacle, a hurdle for science to leap over!”
“Are… are you suggesting that you have a time machine at the ready?”
“At the ready? Oh, heavens no! But I have plenty of prototypes! All of which have gone through… some testing. What, do you think I dress like a mad scientist because it’s fashionable? Oh ho ho ho! All of you listening, I think its time to take a stroll down to my lab! Those foolhardy and adventurous enough, that is! The Life Sphere is in dire need of your services, and I think you might just get a kick out of what I have to show you!”

After much deliberation, the crowd of heroes gathered together were whittled down to a concise set of teams. Hand selected for the tasks that they had put against them, they filed into E Gadd’s laboratory, the baby-faced old man standing with his hands behind his back at the end of the room.
“Ho ho! So here we have it! The cream of the crop, the best of the best! Don’t let that go to your head just yet though, the day hasn’t been saved yet! But seriously though, we’re counting on you, all of you. Not some, look to your group, you’ll need to have each others’ backs, if not for your safety, then for the future of the Life Sphere and, well, maybe even life itself! Mother Brain might have us backed in a corner, but we’ll show her, with the power of ingenuity and my uncanny ability to pull stuff out of my butt!
Speaking of! Those of you that don’t have any time machines of your own, I have plenty to spare! If you met up with Toadsworth beforehand, you have nothing to worry about, you got your own doohickey. For the rest of you though, I present to you the Past Pack! A nifty little invention of mine. Just slip your arms through the straps here and presto, you have yourself the most fashionable techno backpack you’ve ever laid your eyes on! Each of them is unique too! Check the little window on the back and you’ll see you have your own mystical time trinket packed inside! That’s its power source!
It’s very simple how this works here, you just flick the switch on the strap here, think of when and where you want to be and zappo! You get flung across time and space! Mind you, not just anywhere in time and space. Trust me, if you try to warp yourself off of Li, well… let’s just say you won’t end up where you might want to be and could be lost in the cold expanse of space. So, unless you can hold your breath until I manually get you course corrected from here, I wouldn’t try it! Oh! And when you’re warping, try to avoid warping inside buildings, you might end up a part of it, so definitely stick to outdoor locations. These are very temperamental machines, if you try to use them for anything outside your mission parameters, you could be endangering both yourself and your teammates. Just get what you need and warp back here when you’re done. This mission isn’t an excuse to go joyriding around the timestream.
In addition, I know a lot of you might have questions about time travel. Butterfly effect, grandfather paradoxes, and all that jazz. I’ll tell you folks; you have nothing to worry. If something goes wrong, if events play out differently than they historically have, it will not affect us here in the present, because you see, the past that you are visiting is not our past, but a temporal window into a possible past, an alternate universe if you will. What you do will affect the future of the people of that version of Li, but not our Li. If we had the power to change our past, I’d just send you all to stop the creation of the Starvia and call it a day.
Now then! Let’s not dilly dally any further! Time might be on our side, but time is still of the essence! Get into your groups, synchronize your thinker boxes and off you go! Don’t worry if you’re off by a couple hours, either me or your dedicated liaison will manually course correct you so that you end up with all your little pals! Tootle loo!”
