Chapter 22: The Fate of the Universe

The heroes entered the Great Maze and were forced to fight monochrome copies of all the major enemies in the story (sans Tabuu) as well as clones of themselves. It was long and hard, but now all the heroes united can stop Tabuu. Will they make it in time? Who knows? They’d better.

Everyone: Huh?!

They find themselves on a long, stone path in the air in Subspace that leads to a giant sun. As they walk along the path, generic Subspace minions attack them, but they’re quickly disposed of. With little time left, the fellowship start running. They find a large castle wall with two Tabuu statues guarding the door. The statues turn to them and start charging laser orbs, but Rufus ground pounds one and Purple slices the other.

Yux: … I never used the Randomize in the last chapter!

P.T.: Yeah you did, it was in a deleted scene.

Fin: The good news, I got a burrito! The bad news, your car was stolen.

Yux: I just bought that car!

Petey: If we all have bad news, but the bad thing happens to him, isn’t it good news for us?

Before they can ponder this, the door opens and they continue up a spiral staircase that goes around the sun. It then leads to a lift that carries them up to a lava tunnel like in Super Mario Galaxy.

Luigi: Way too familiar.

After maneuvering the tunnel (the flying party members just fly across), they find another lift that leads to a final staircase. The heroes go up the stairs and make it to the top, where Tabuu greets them.

Rob: Tabuu!

Tabuu: Well, well, well… You’ve done well to make it this far… But now YOU’RE FINISHED!

Tabuu prepares to do another Off-Wave attack when suddenly a grenade appears and blows up his wings, then something falls and lands on Tabuu, knocking him down to where the group is. The person who did this is revealed.

NEWCOMER: SNAKE

Snake's Brawl victory theme plays.

Everyone: Snake?

Snake: That’s right, I’m here to-

Tabuu gets back up and kicks Snake over the edge.

Luigi: Snake? Snake?! SNAAAAAAKE!

Tabuu: THAT’S IT!

Tabuu blows up the platform the group is on and they fall and land on a platform similar to the one where Tabuu was fought in Brawl.

Tabuu: I don’t have time for this! Once my Subspace Reactor is ready, it’ll go off and merge Subspace and your world together, and I’ll be unstoppable! And you’re in my way!

Tabuu disappears and reappears somewhere else and charges up the dragon laser.

Everyone but Fin: Whoa!

They all avoid the laser, except Fin.

Fin: GAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHH!!!

Tabuu: On second thought… How about this?

BATTLE OVER!

Tabuu is twitching around in pain.

Purple: We beat you!

P.T.: Thank you, Axem Obvious.

Purple: …

Tabuu: GRRAAAAAA!!!

Tabuu explodes! … But something’s not right… He’s reforming! He’s now the same as he was, only black and white striped (horizontal stripes).

Tabuu: YOU THOUGHT YOU’VE BEATEN ME?! YOU’VE JUST UNLEASHED MY MOST POWERFUL FORM!

Everyone: D’oh!

Tabuu: NOW MY REACTOR IS ALMOST READY! SO LONG, FOOLS!

Tabuu flies off to the sun.

P.T.: He looks different. Did he get a haircut?

Purple: Oh no! Uh, quick! Let’s see that laptop!

He takes the laptop from Luigi and goes to the video on Youtube that Gadd mentioned. Shortly…

Purple: GAH! I’VE BEEN RICK ROLLED!

Gadd: Ha!

Luigi: You told us it would help!

Gadd: Yeah, I lied. But it was funny, wasn’t it?

Petey: It was.

Yux: Are you insane?!

Fin: Shut up, Yux.

Yux: I hate you all!

Purple: Tabuu is headed straight for that sun to set off his Subspace Reactor, and we’re arguing over stupid things! We need to get over there and stop him!

Shade: I never get any action! I came on this adventure so I could have an adventure with Purple! I started this with him, so I’m ending it with him! But how do we get there?

Red and Rob: Can we come?

Purple: No, it’s too dangerous.

Rufus: … I have an idea on how to get there, but I’m not gonna like it…

Purple: The world’s at stake, man! Just do it!

Rufus: All right! I’m gonna have to wash my mouth in the morning.

Rufus eats Purple and Shade, aims, and spits them out at the sun. They fly through a hole in the sun and land on a glass-like platform in the center with 6 blue plates and some weird hot thing inside.

Tabuu: YOU THOUGHT YOU COULD STOP ME?! YOUR GAMES WILL END!

Shade: GAAAH! WHAT DO WE DO?!

Purple: I don’t know… Uh, beat him up!

Tabuu throws dark orbs at the duo, but Purple’s axe deflects them like Link fighting Ganondorf. Tabuu and Purple knock them back and forth a few times until Tabuu is hit. Purple leaps up and sends him to the core they’re on with a strike, and Shade does a roundhouse kick. Tabuu gets back up and uses his Whip Chain and grabs Purple, thus Purple drops his axe.

Purple: AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHH!!! HELP!

Shade picks up the axe and leaps up, and cuts the whip and drops the axe. Purple releases himself and then uses the whip attack on Tabuu, but Tabuu’s too strong for it and he drags Purple around. Shade grabs Purple and tries to pull him back, starting a tug-of-war. Purple finds his axe that Shade dropped and throws it at Tabuu. The attack distracts the humanoid and Purple and Shade manage to win the tug-of-war, causing Tabuu to crash into a blue plate, breaking it. He then flies up in pain because of the lava under the plate.

Tabuu: AAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHH!!!

Tabuu then shoots energy needles. Purple and Shade run around the whole reactor core and the needle storm follows, making tiny holes in the blue plates.

Shade: Look, the needles damaged the plates! If we can get one good attack in on each of them, we’ll break them all!

Purple: … And that could cause the Reactor to explode, thus fail in destroying the world?

Shade: I think!

Purple turns around, holds his axe over his head, and slashes it down, chopping up one plate. Two out of six are broken. Tabuu turns, changes to spearhead form, and crashes down, making shockwaves. Purple and Shade jump over them and Shade jumps and grabs one of Tabuu’s legs and tries to drag him down, but Tabuu kicks him off. Purple desperately hacks away at one plate when he gets trapped in two brackets. The brackets start crushing him when Shade takes them off and breaks them over his knee.

Purple: Someone has to distract him! We’ll never stop it in time!

???: YEEEEEEEEEEEE-HAAAW!!!

Yux, P.T., Fin, Luigi, Rufus, Red, Gadd, Rob, and Petey all ride in on a Banzai Bill that crashes into Tabuu.

Petey: I told you it would work!

Rufus: Okay, you’re right, I’m sorry!

Purple: Guys, you’re here?

Luigi: We’re not letting you take all the credit!

Purple: Okay. Some of you guys distract Tabuu, the rest of us break all the blue plates!

Tabuu gets up and starts launching clones, but Petey dodges and shoots a cannonball at Tabuu, then looks down and spits one at the blue plate near him. Half of them are taken care of! Rufus sticks his tongue out and it latches onto Tabuu. Luigi, Rob, Gadd, and Fin all pull Rufus in another tug-of-war.

P.T.: Hammer time!

P.T. swings his golden hammer and breaks one plate. Red does a shell toss and hits Tabuu, and when he turns around and goes for another, Yux breathes fire on Tabuu so he’ll be distracted. Tabuu’s knocked a few feet away, as the shell breaks a plate, and then launches up in pain, but is still relatively close to the ground due to Rufus’s tongue. P.T., Yux, Red, and Shade all join the tug-of-war and Petey picks up whoever’s in the back and swings him around, causing the whole tug-of-war situation to spin around and around. Purple leaps up and slashes Tabuu. Rufus lets go and Tabuu crashes down and breaks the last plate.

Purple: You’re finished!

Suddenly the core shakes.

Red: What happened?!

Gadd: The Reactor’s going to blow, we gotta get out of here!

Rob: We don’t have that much time!

Purple: Uh, Yux! Randomize!

Yux: All right, fine! But just so you know, since it’s the end of the story, the good news and bad news will both be extremely good and bad.

Everyone: DO IT!

Yux: FINE! SUPER LAST CHAPTER RANDOMIZE!

Yux glows all the colors of the rainbow, then stops.

Yux: The super extra good news is that we can escape and the world just might be restored!

A gold version of Bowser Jr’s personal airship lowers down and everyone gets on it and it starts flying away.

Yux: The super extra bad news…

On the core, Tabuu wakes up and starts shooting lasers at the ship.

Everyone: AAAAHH!

Shade: We’re not gonna make it!

Purple: … Someone has to stop him…

Tabuu’s new black wings appear and he flies toward the ship. Purple starts glowing as if he broke a Smash Ball.

Purple: It’s time… Shade!

Shade: What? And why are you-

Purple: No time. Shade, I want you to have my axe.

Shade: But-

Purple: Shade…

Shade: … Fine. But why?

Purple: Uhh, how about to save us all?

Yux: Duh.

Shade: Shut up, Yux.

Purple gets up on the rail and leaps off the ship.

Tabuu: (Japanese: I DO NOT DIE! IT WILL NOT DIE!)

Purple: FALCON PUNCH!

Purple (Falcon) Punches Tabuu right in the face, defeating Tabuu.

Everyone Else: Purple!

Tabuu: AAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH……

Tabuu is defeated as the Core explodes. The explosion destroys the sun and the Reactor, Tabuu… and Purple. The ship flies out of the Reactor area, out the door in the “Maze”, and out of the light ball and back into Subspace. Then the whole area glows brightly and you can’t see anything at all.


Epilogue: Aftermath

Shade, Yux, P.T., Fin, Luigi, Rufus, Red, Gadd, Rob, and Petey all find themselves in Flipside.

Shade: Huh?

Rob: Where are we?

Red: What happened?

Merlon: When you destroyed Subspace, you were sent here. Congratulations, you saved your world!

P.T.: Awesome!

Shade: Wait, where’s Purple?

Merlon: He wasn’t here. I’m sorry to tell you this… but his game is over. I saw it… on my magic Plasma Screen TV.

Fin: Wow, I’m totally going to steal that!

Merlon: What was that?

Fin: … Nothing.

Shade: Purple’s… dead?

Merlon: Yes, he used the Falcon Punch that I taught him to save you!

Yux: Since when do you know the Falcon Punch?

Merlon: Shut up, Yux. Anyway, I’m sorry for your loss. Kinda. Not really. Time for you to go back home. SHAZAM!

Merlon warps them all back to just outside Gadd’s lab. It's been restored.

Gadd: My house! It’s back to normal! Well that was fun. Kind of. Get off my property.

Gadd goes into his house.

Petey: Well I gotta be going to. Good seeing you again, Shade. Kinda. Didn’t really pay attention.

Petey flies away.

Luigi: I gotta tell everyone about what I just helped with!

Luigi runs off.

P.T.: I’m bored.

P.T. walks away.

Rob: I’m gonna go make sure something like this never happens again. Goodbye!

Shady Parakoopa: THERE YOU ARE!

Yux: Oh no!

Shady: We’ve been looking all over for you, Yux! Come back now, we need our plunger.

Yux: Stop using me as a pl-

Shady: Shut up, Yux.

Yux: … I HATE YOU ALL!

Shady drags Yux away and out of my submissions. Fin puts on his red Bandit cloak over his blue one.

Fin: Well, break time’s over. Bye.

Fin runs off.

Rufus: If us Yoshis were celebrating Bowser’s death, I can’t wait until they hear about this. I’m gonna tell them.

Rufus runs off to Yoshi’s Island.

Red: Woo! There is no way I need to take any adventures ever again… By that I mean until next week. Bye! Thanks for saving me, I guess.

Shade: … Well I wanted an adventure of my own… I got half of one. No, not even half, one quarter! I got one quarter of an adventure. Oh well. I think an adventure and a fourth are enough for this Shy Guy…

Shade then starts walking away.

Each character’s fates:

Purple: Died saving the world and the others from Tabuu.

Shade: Built a memorial for Purple and decided to settle down somewhere and try to find a girlfriend.

Yux: Continued to be treated like mud. He honestly can’t tell which is worse, the way he’s treated normally, or the way he was treated in this story.

P.T.: Continued interviewing and stuff like that.

Fin: Kept stealing things, but wasn’t very good at it. In fact he might be the worst thief ever. But he never quit trying, mostly because he’s kind of stupid.

Luigi: Nobody believed Luigi when he told people what he did, so he went to Rogueport to tell them and they made a novel series out of that just like his Waffle Kingdom adventure. The movie will be in theaters nowhere near you.

Rufus: Rufus became a hero among the Yoshis and continued partying all night and sleeping all day.

Red: Red soon started adventuring again. Last time anybody heard, he was going to explore that one island that nobody cares about.

Gadd: Gadd continued to be a semi-mad scientist who assists good guys.

Rob: Rob joined a bowling team that wasn’t evil. They won 3rd place in the nationals.

Petey: He just continued with his usual lifestyle.

The Bowling Team of Doom: Grubba, Bill Gates, Waluigi, and Ballyhoo were never heard from again.

The Shroobs: The Shroobs were sick of failing to conquer the world, so they decided to attack another world. I’m looking at you, Mobius…

Merlon: Merlon continued being Merlon.

Fiery Dino Piranha: He wasn’t seen again, it’s believed he may have choked to death.

Everyone Else: Nothing really noteworthy.

The End.

Larry's Adventure II Ch. 22 (End)
The last chapter of Larry's Adventure 2.

Instead of Sonic, this time it's Snake who helps the party stand up to Tabuu, though he doesn't join the party. Snake will return in Larry's Adventure 3 to do the same thing again a few more times.

Tabuu's RPG battle. Probably one of the longer ones I've done. I felt it was suitable for the ending, but I dunno. I'm glad I didn't do too many in the third story. You know it's bad when even the characters themselves are just spamming the same attacks in order to get things done faster. I'm looking at you, Petey's Cannonball Succession. Not to mention Tabuu one-shotting all of Purple's party members just so Purple can use them all in this fight. Though at least everyone got to contribute. And hey, Yux set Tabuu up for Purple to finish him off... before the fight moved on to another format.

Shade sure does seem to want to be with Purple. I didn't notice anything peculiar about that until just now... I won't judge.

So the final battle is similar to the final boss of Super Mario Galaxy. It works for me, I think the fight plays out well. It's much better than the final battle with Kamek in the previous story. Fin, Gadd, and Luigi probably could have done more than just help Rufus distract Tabuu, but I guess it's important that Tabuu doesn't overpower Rufus. He would've. And Yux's Randomizer having extra good/bad news for the final chapter is not made up by me. That's what he always had.

So... Axem Purple dies. He was a main character in Larry's Adventure, and then one week later goes on an adventure that ends when he dies. Oddly, this is the second time he's died. But this time, it sticks. All just so I could do the Falcon Punch scene. No regret. This is probably the closest to a dramatic moment in this story. Sure the last story was silly too, but it started with Bowser's death orphaning Larry and his siblings, while Kamek was secretly behind it. This was the secret attack that Merlon taught Purple.

Also, Purple giving his axe to Shade is very important for the climax of Larry's Adventure 3. I didn't actually consider that when I wrote it, but I like that it worked out.

This story's ending is weak. It's the same problem as last time- "Welp, we did it. Time to go. Bye." Everyone just walks off in their own direction, announcing their plans. Hardly anyone seems to care that Purple just died, geez. And Larry did not appear once. He wasn't supposed to, but maybe he should have had at least one line at the end going, "why aren't I in this one" or something.

So... Larry's Adventure 2. Like I said, definitely the silliest in the series, I see it now. It had the antics of the previous story, but less of the drama (not that there was a lot). I would try to write Larry's Adventure 3 in a while, but ended up canceling it. It took three years for me to finally get back to Larry's Adventure 3, and I gave it an overhaul.

This story did keep its momentum from the last one, it's definitely better. But it's a little more warped, and bad parts were still there. But certainly an improvement. And I can only hope that the two year break between this story and the third one made things even better.

I like this story, though.

Chapter 21: The Great “Maze”

Our heroes decided to quit beating around the bush and to take the fight to Subspace. There, they found out Tabuu was in charge of all of this as well as the Bowling Team of Doom. They were defeated, but Yux did the Randomizer, causing Shade and Red to be back in the story. They met with the Bowling Team of Doom, and the Ancient Minister betrayed his team and revealed himself as ROB. The bad news was that now our heroes' world was being attacked hard by Subspace. With little time, they found Rufus and decided to quickly find Tabuu. They then saved everyone else. Petey Piranha also joined the team and saved some others. The Shroobs and Fiery Dino Piranha came back for a final appearance, but were beaten. Purple also learned a secret move from Merlon that’s only to be used in the most desperate time. Finally Gadd decided to join the team for their final confrontation. Now they’re after Tabuu.

The group notices that they’re in a similar environment, but with trophies of all of them and most of the story’s major enemies scattered around, guarding that door behind them.

Tabuu’s voice: Bwahahahaha! I see you’ve all found each other and come back to life! Well if you want to beat me, you gotta find me! On the other side of that door is my trick to finishing off all of your world and just maybe parts of some surrounding universes! You’ve got two hours to stop me! Otherwise, BOOM!

Purple: … We’ve gotta hurry, come on!

Purple leads everyone to a door nearby. The door takes them to Delfino Plaza. It’s black and white, and the only people with Purple are Shade, Yux, and P.T.

Purple: Huh?

Shade: This must be like in Wind Waker when boss recreations were monochrome! And like how you could only use items that were present at the time, I guess this means you can only have people who were present at the time with you.

P.T.: Guys, look!

They look to see a monochrome Mr. L and Petey Piranha headed for them.

Yux: I forgot Luigi was evil at the start of this story.

Mr. L does a Super Jump and tries to land on Purple, but Purple moves and shoves Mr. L into the water. Meanwhile Petey spits a cannonball.

P.T.: Yux, how’s your spine?

Yux: I don’t have one, but I’d say I can be pretty stiff. Why?

P.T. grabs Yux and uses him like a baseball to knock the cannonball back at Petey.

Yux: GYAAAAAAAAAAAGH!!!

P.T.: Shut up, Yux.

Mr. L shoots green fireballs at Purple, but Purple spins his axe and sends them flying in all directions. He than pokes Mr. L’s stomach with the handle, then does an uppercut punch, then a kick to the ribs, sending Mr. L a few feet. Shade skates by and gets ready for Mr. L to crash, but Shade just grabs him up and spins him around. P.T. walks up and holds his Golden Hammer out so Mr. L’s face hits it every few seconds. Finally Shade tosses Mr. L up and Yux floats up and breathes fire on him, causing Mr. L to explode. Then Petey eats Yux.

Yux: This stomach acid feels like dying!

P.T. holds Petey down and another P.T. appears with a fishing rod and casts his line. He pulls Yux out of Petey’s mouth, along with some cake.

P.T.: Cake!

Other P.T.: Cake!

Then Shade skates by with Purple on his shoulders, holding his axe out. This results in a quick, mobile slice that defeats Petey. Then a door appears. The heroes find themselves back in the first room, but the trophies of Petey Piranha and Mr. L are gone. The first door disappears and a new one takes its place. The group goes through the door to find themselves at a monochrome Thwomp Volcano.

Purple: Who’s here?

Yux: Me.

P.T.: Me.

Fin: Me.

Purple: So we’re about as plentiful as last time.

Monochrome versions of Bubble and Sonic appear. Sonic commits suicide. A monochrome version of the Ancient Minister takes his place.

Purple: Too easy.

Purple throws his axe at the Ancient Minister and he starts flying around like crazy and short-circuiting. He crashes into Bubble, and then both crash into a wall and are defeated. After leaving and coming back, the group finds that they’re in the Space Junk Galaxy.

Purple: Now it’s just Shade, Luigi, and me? Aw man.

Monochrome Tarantox appears.

Shade: Aahh!

Tarantox spits toxic goo and the protagonists dodge. Tarantox turns and aims his spit for Purple, but Shade skates and rams into the bulge on Tarantox’s butt, causing him to flip over. Luigi does a Super Jump and squishes one of his three weak points. While Tarantox is reacting, he does it again to the second. Tarantox does a wild spin and spits goo all over. They barely dodge. Purple runs and leaps onto his face, causing Tarantox to reach for Purple, and Purple runs down the spider’s back and Tarantox, trying to follow, falls over on his back for Luigi to deliver the final jump. Tarantox gets back up and is madder than before. He starts stomping around and spitting goo, when he decides to just fly.

Shade: Aww man!

Tarantox starts dropping toxic balls of goop. But flying was dumb because his belly is exposed. Three quick Super Jumps later, he’s done for.

After leaving and coming back into the room, the current party is now Purple, Yux, P.T., Fin, Luigi, and Rufus. They’re on the deck of one of the airships and Monochrome Commander Shroob is shooting at them from his ship.

Purple: Where’s Shade?

Rufus: He was kicked out of the story in the very chapter this takes place in.

Purple: Oh yeah.

The alien leader shoots cannonballs and P.T. pulls out his hammer… to find he has no hammer.

P.T.: We had no weapons in this fight!

Yux: Simple.

Yux flies over and breathes fire in the Commander’s face. But then he’s grabbed and used as the next cannonball. Rufus flutter jumps over to Commander Shroob and ground pounds on him, then stuffs him into the cannon and launches him toward the sun.

Fin: That was cruel.

Rufus: Whatever.

They leave and come back and find themselves in the Snow Cap Galaxy with Monochrome Fiery Dino Piranha. The beast starts charging and spitting monochrome fire. The party find that they’re in their super power forms.

Purple: So what do we do again?

Luigi: I can fly by doing a spin in the air.

Rufus: I’m a Boo…

P.T.: Boing, boing, boing, boing-

Fin: I have wings!

Rufus: From the Wing Cap?

Fin: No, from Red Bull.

Yux: And you’re a bee.

Purple: Huh? Not again!

Yux: Good thing for me, I didn’t need a super power!

He gets eaten by Fiery Dino Piranha.

Yux: Aaahh! The dying feeling! I feel it again!

Purple flies around and finds a spot on Fiery Dino Piranha’s back. He tries to get close enough (which is hard since FDP is moving). When he is, he stings him. Then he loses his suit because bees die when they sting.

Purple: I did damage and lost the suit. I’m efficient.

FDP starts swinging his tail around and spitting fireballs. P.T. bounces up… and lands in the attached Toad Town on Gourmet Guy.

Fin: I know! Hey! Follow me!

Fin flies off and FDP follows. He then tries to lure FDP off the edge by flying into space, but the planet has gravity on all sides.

Fin: D’oh!

Luigi spins into the monster’s tail, doing damage.

Then suddenly he stands up, grabs his tail, and whacks his head many times until he’s defeated. Boo Rufus appears in the spot where he was.

Rufus: Ha! I possessed him!

The doors reappear, so that must count as a win.

They leave and come back and find themselves on Shadow Noah Island. Monochrome Metal Gizmo SHARK breaks through the wall. He opens his mouth and a Banzai Bill flies out. It locks onto Yux.

Yux: Hey!

Purple: Aw man, not the giant robot! How’d we beat it before?

Fin: I dunno.

P.T.: I got that chain around my arm again! Get it off!

P.T. somehow removes it and swings it around, trying to get rid of it, and it accidentally hits the Banzai Bill, causing it to explode.

P.T.: … Bwahahahaha!

P.T. runs around and uses it like a whip and hits Metal Gizmo, but it bounces off and hits Yux.

Yux: I hate you all!

Purple hits SHARK with his axe and then scrambles up a few ways, and then strikes his axe into the robot again further up, then scrambles up even more. He does this until he finds the cockpit and breaks in. Monochrome Goomba gives him a murderous glare.

Purple: What?!

Purple defeats the Goomba and presses the abort button, and Metal Gizmo promptly explodes. Then Monochrome Macho Grubba appears! Rufus runs up and sticks his tongue out and swallows Macho Grubba, but he then gets back out and beats Rufus to a pulp. P.T. sneaks up and does a jumping hammer attack, sending the Clubba to the wall.

P.T.: No more steroids for you!

Grubba rampages forth and Purple gets in the way and leaps into the air and does a bunch of punches and kicks and finishes with a slash attack, and then Grubba is flattened by a Super Jump landing. Macho Grubba is defeated!

Back in the main room of the “Maze”…

P.T.: Weren’t we supposed to fight a bunch of guys right after Fiery Dino Piranha but before the robot?

Luigi: Who cares?

Shade: Wow, I realize now… I didn’t get much action in this story.

Petey: I was an enemy?!

Purple: You don’t remember?! Even though you were told this?!

Gadd: I never got to fight any bosses!

Rufus: You just sat back in your lab and instructed us.

Gadd: … Shut up.

Rob: Don’t forget about me!

The group go through the door and now they’re on top of the Excess Express. Master Chief appears with Banjo and Kazooie!

Fin: The Microsoft Guys!

Purple: … Banjo and Kazooie left Nintendo?!

Banjo holds Kazooie like a rifle and starts shooting Grenade Eggs, and Master Chief just starts shooting at the heroes. Everyone ducks and the enemies hit each other, and are defeated. Lame. Then Bill Gates drops down in a suit of gold armor. Actually it’s monochrome.

Luigi: Run, it’s Bill Gates!

Bill’s arm cannon starts shooting gold bars, but Fin leaps up and grabs each one. However Purple then takes one and throws it at Bill’s face, causing him to be in pain and the armor to fall off. Rufus does a leap kick that knocks Bill off the train. When the heroes leave and come back, they’re in Wario’s throne room.

Luigi: WALUIGI MUST DIE!

However Monochrome Waluigi is in his super ultimate form.

Luigi: … Dang…

He charges forward, then-

Fin: Isn’t that Doopliss?

He changes into Monochrome Doopliss, and thus is defeated for being exposed. They leave and come back and find themselves in the Star Carnival with Monochrome Ballyhoo. The MC points and Wolfens appear and start shooting.

Purple: Just what we needed, Star Wolf.

P.T.: Get the guy behind me, Purple!

Rufus: (sarcastically) Gee, I’ve been saved by Purple, how swell!

Luigi just walks over next to Ballyhoo, and then when the lasers lock on and are headed straight for him he grabs Ballyhoo and holds him out before him so he takes the hit, defeating him. Luigi then Super Jumps and lands on the Wolfen, bringing it to the ground and destroying it. Since it was Wolf’s, the others are defeated too. They leave and come back to find themselves facing Monochrome Shroids.

Purple: Not these guys again!

Gadd: Hey, now I’m here!

The Shroids start charging their lasers, when Rufus quickly eats them.

Purple: That was easy.

The Monochrome Koopa Bros. then appear!

Everyone: D’oh!

Gadd: Don’t worry, I have this!

It’s Fludd!

Purple: Fludd?

Gadd: But I modified it!

Gadd squeezes the handles and lava comes out of Fludd. He aims for the Koopa Bros. so they’re quickly dispatched.

Gadd: … And now I’m all out.

Monochrome King Shroob appears in his super UFO!

Everyone: HOW MANY FIGHTS DID WE HAVE IN SHROOB CITY?!

Gadd: Don’t forget Swiggler.

Purple: Meh, he doesn’t count.

King Shroob starts shooting lasers and Purple slowly walks forward, spinning his axe to deflect the shots. When he’s close enough, he slashes the spider legs. However it’s a UFO so it floats.

Gadd: I gotta get one of those for myself!

Monochrome Guardian Shroobs appear and start shooting.

Yux: That never happened when we were here!

Luigi: Shut up, Yux.

Purple leaps up and delivers a critical blow to King Shroob.

Purple: Oh yeah! I guess I’m pretty awesome!

The heroes leave and come back to find the only remaining foes… the Monochrome copies of themselves! Minus Petey, since he already appeared on Isle Delfino.

Purple: Uh oh… Uh… Fight?

Amazingly they can all fit on that platform. Purple leaps up and fights M Purple (Monochrome Purple) and they’re matched when it comes to axe skills. Petey flies up there.

Petey: GET IN MAH BELLY!

Petey eats M Purple and defeats him. Red and M Red are spitting fireballs at each other, but each ball is countered until finally Red just gets into his shell and slams into M Red, knocking him over the edge. Shade and M Shade have a game of Chicken with their skates but it’s interrupted when Yux is thrown at M Shade, defeating the clone. M Yux then tackles Shade, but Shade grabs him and throws him at Yux.

P.T.: …

M P.T.: …

They both pull out boomerangs and throw them… and accidentally hit themselves.

Rufus: Your guy’s as dumb as you are!

P.T.: Trade?

Rufus: Yeah.

Rufus throws an egg at M P.T., then trips him with his tail and does a ground pound to defeat him. P.T. is riding M Rufus around and whacking him with his boomerang until he forces him off the edge.

Rob: Look!

M Rob looks away and Rob shoots a spinning top at M Rob. The enemy turns around and starts firing a laser, but-

Rob: Diffusion Beam!

Short, constant lasers come from Rob’s eyes and he approaches M Rob. The lasers damage him, in addition to the attacks from Rob’s arms. M Rob is defeated. M Yux comes back for Yux, but Gadd sucks him up with his Poltergust. M Gadd’s lava-squirting Fludd melts it, but then Petey eats the clone. Fin tries to pickpocket M Fin’s pockets while M Fin does the same to Fin. They both find nothing at all. So Fin just punches M Fin, then kicks his body until it’s defeated. The heroes win! They make it back to the main room of the “Maze”.

Gadd: Look!

All the trophies are gone and the path to the door appears.

Purple: We lost a lot of time doing that, we gotta move it! Come on!

The heroes charge forward and head for the door. This is it, the final battle. On the other side of the door is Tabuu. Tabuu must be stopped!
Larry's Adventure II Ch. 21
So instead of platforming and fighting, this version of the Great Maze is purely fighting.

If I recall, the party had trouble defeating the Ancient Minister's minions. In fact, the best they could do for the whole story is to keep up with their enemies. They kept losing, retreating, or tying with the Ancient Minister's forces. Red nearly beats them or gets taken away. They needed items and a Randomizer to beat Grubba and Waluigi respectively. Ballyhoo beat himself, as did King Shroob. It was mostly mid-boss type enemies that the heroes could beat, no arc villains. Bill Gates and Fiery Dino Piranha were exceptions. Maybe the final Dark Red battle too.

But now, the heroes must actually triumph over all their enemies in the Great Maze. It shows how far they've come. Or I was just powering through the maze. Maybe both?

This chapter was a little repetitive. Just fight after fight after fight. I think more than one person called me out on that. I can see why, now. Maybe I should have restricted it to arc villains or something. I do worry if the events are hard to understand. But anyway, the maze ends with a big fight with evil versions of our heroes. Just like the real maze. The final fight wasn't really much better. It was fairly easy.

This chapter... I think it could've been done better, but the idea was nice.

Chapter 20: Entrance to Subspace

Last time I ripped off Mother 3 for the most part. Purple & Co, now including Gadd, traveled to Shroob City- where the Shroobs have relocated the Mushroom Kingdom’s population- to speak with King Shroob about the fights between them and the Shroobs. But on their way to the throne, they faced dance-offs, little girls, giant monsters, robots, and the Koopa Bros. After a mildly challenging battle, the king stupidly trapped himself and Subspace took over the whole floating town, along with everyone in it. Our heroes escaped and figured out that previously bombed places are back to being bombed. What’ll happen now?

Luigi: Wow, long recap. That’s what we get for long chapters, I guess. So what do we do?

Rufus: Move?

Luigi: To where?

P.T.: I know! There’s this rocket in the-

Yux: If you talk about that rocket one more time-

P.T.: Shut up, Yux.

Gadd: Good luck! I’m gonna do whatever I want! I have the whole kingdom to myself!

Fin: What’re you gonna do?

Gadd: I can’t say!

Gadd runs away.

Everyone Else: …

P.T.: I’m bored.

Purple: Well we can’t just leave all those people in what was Shroob City to be stuck forever! We gotta do something!

Rufus: Are you sure the FF can handle that many more plot twists? Just look at what Fin stole from Gadd.

Fin: How’d you know?

Rufus: Look at this meter. It’s almost filled! The author’s natural randomness gave it a kick-start, then all the plot twists increased the amount! The universe isn’t stable, man!

P.T.: Oh please! This happens in almost every story I write! What makes this one so bad?

Rufus: Probably Yux’s Randomizing.

Luigi: Yux, you helped doom us all!

Yux: You wanted me to use the Randomizer!

Fin: Shut up, nobody cares.

Yux: I hate you a-

Fun: I said shut up!

Everyone else starts snickering.

Fun: … What? … HEY! WHO CHANGED MY NAME FROM "FIN" TO "FUN"?!

Sorry.

Fin: Better.

Purple: I can’t take this much in a plot! Let’s just take the fight to Subspace and undo it like those guys in the game did!

Fin: How do we do that?

Everyone then gets the same idea. Soon…

Gadd: Well the Ancient Minister had ways of getting to Subspace, but Dark Red destroyed him. The other members of the Bowling Team of Doom might’ve also had ways, but they’re all defeated too. So we’ll just have to fly into a Subspace Bubble! Quick, everyone, to the Gaddmobile!

Everyone follows Gadd to a rocket. Oddly, there are enough seats for everybody. The ship then blasts off and goes through the roof.

Gadd: Squadala! We are off!

Everyone Else: What?

The rocket soon heads for the Subspace Bubble, where Shroob City was, and actually manages to enter. They get out.

Fin: Subspace sure is similar to how it was in the game. Didn’t it look different earlier in the story?

Gadd: That was before the author knew better. Now go, go and find some way to save people! I’ll stay here for no reason!

Yux: I hate you.

Gadd: Shut up. However, take this laptop!

PURPLE GOT THE LAPTOP!

Gadd: And here’s a piece of paper with a link to an important Youtube video that will help you in the most desperate hour!

PURPLE GOT THE PAPER WITH THE LINK ON IT!

Purple: Uh, okay. I guess we should go now.

Purple and the party continue forth, finding ruins of various Mushroom Kingdom locations in the background. After a ways, the heroes find some guy floating in midair.

Everyone but Luigi: Who is that?

Luigi: … IT’S TABUU!

Purple: Tabuu?! Oh my DAD!

Yux: Oh my DAD!

P.T.: Oh my DAD!

Rufus: Oh my DAD!

Fin: PADRE mios!

It’s true. A few yards from the cliff they’re on is Tabuu, in midair.

Tabuu: … Doom… Death… Destruction… Pain… Suffering… Trauma…

P.T.: Are you emo?

Tabuu: … Shut up! I’m trying to be dramatic!

Purple: What are you doing?

Tabuu: What do you think? I’m trying to takeover your world.

Everyone: ZUH?!

Tabuu: That’s right. I’m trying to destroy your world! Smashgea didn’t die so easily so I’m hoping your world will. I’ve employed the Bowling Team of Doom to attack the world so it can be destroyed by Subspace.

Fin: Smashgea?

Tabuu: The name I made up for the location of the world in that game. It’s a mix of “Smash” and “Pangea”.

Rufus: Then how’d the Shroobs get a Subspace Bomb?

Tabuu: Uh, well, I had to make some cutbacks… So I had it sold on eBay.

Everyone: …

Tabuu: Don’t judge me… Now, I’m impressed that you made it this far. I thought the Ancient Minister would stop you and I thought you’d never find out about the other four guys, meaning they could go ahead and attack your world. Bill Gates, Waluigi, and Ballyhoo were the most powerful members, so I didn’t think you’d beat them. I didn’t even think you’d find a way here, but you did. Well that’s enough from you. So now you DIE!

Tabuu’s rainbow wings appear and he shoots an Off-Wave at Fin, turning him into a trophy.

Tabuu: *CD-i Bowser laugh*

Purple: FIN!

Tabuu: Now I have a proposition for you. If you agree to it, I may spare you.

Purple: Never!

Rufus: Hold on, Purple, this might be good.

Purple: Rufus!

P.T.: No, no. Let’s hear what he has to say.

Luigi: Yeah, I wanna see where this is going.

Purple: Guys! Ugh. Fine, what’s your offer?

Tabuu: Join me, heroes, and I will make your faces the greatest in Koridai. Or you will die.

Gwonam from Zelda CD-I: Your Majesty, Tabuu and his minions have seized the island of Koridai.

Purple: What?! We’ve never heard of the place! No deal!

P.T.: Wait!

P.T. walks over to the edge of the cliff and turns to the others.

P.T.: I accept! Because... I was secretly one of the bad guys all along! I bet you didn’t expect that!

Everyone Else: Gasp!

P.T.: … Nah, just messing with you. I’m not a bad guy.

Everyone Else: …

P.T. goes back to the others.

Tabuu: YOU MUST DIE!

Tabuu spreads his wings and sends more Off-Waves, but as he does…

Yux: Randomize!

He glows and stops, right before becoming a trophy like the others, who then become scattered. Then Tabuu hides inside a glowing ball of light. In some random part of Subspace, some guy gets out from under some wreckage… Shade!

Shade: My head… Hmm? Hey, I’m back in the story! Finally after all that time!

Shade looks and sees a blue light far away.

Shade: … That’s weird. I wonder what it is.

Meanwhile…

Gadd: I’m bored.

Suddenly Gadd’s lab comes crashing down near him.

Gadd: Oh DAD, they got my house!

Suddenly Red’s portrait falls from the top of the wreckage and lands next to Gadd’s feet. Remember he was the Fire Bro that turned evil and then fused with Agent Dark and then became a recurring enemy, then finally got defeated and turned into a Boo then separated from Agent Dark when they were both made into portraits.

Gadd: I bet those idiots are probably off dying somewhere… Wait!

Gadd takes the portrait and then goes through the remains of his lab to find his machine that turned Dark Red Boo into the portraits of Agent Dark and Red.

Gadd: Idea!

He uses the machine in reverse to turn Red back into Boo form, and then forces a 1-Up Mushroom into his mouth, turning him back into a Fire Bro.

Red: Ugh… What happened? Huh? Where am I?

Gadd: You’re back in Subspace!

Red: Noooo!

Gadd: Now listen, I don’t know how I know this but this guy up ahead is the reason for all the turmoil, so go and kill him!

Red: But-

Gadd: Silence, nonbeliever!

Red: Fine…

Red walks onward. Soon he meets Shade.

Both: Who are you?

Shade: I’m Shade, the Shy Guy that was supposed to be a main character, but then got kicked out of the story for a few chapters.

Red: I’m Red, the Fire Bro who turned evil and then merged with an evil being to become a supremely powerful stalker enemy until I finally got turned into a painting. And when I was restored, I was normal.

Both of them: What are you doing? I’m heading to the bright blue light up ahead. Hey! Maybe we should join forces! Stop saying what I’m saying! I said stop! Hey! … She sells seashells by the seashore. You’re good.

Red: All right, let’s go.

They keep going forward and suddenly-

???: Stop!

At that point, the Ancient Minister, Grubba, Bill Gates, Waluigi, and Ballyhoo appear! Big Top was destroyed in the explosion, since he was part of the bomb. That’s why he’s not here.

Shade: Oh my DAD, I know you guys! I read the script while I was out of the story! You’re the Bowling Team of Doom! You were beaten by my friends!

Ancient Minister: Yes, and now we’re here to exact revenge!

Red: Yeah, I think I heard of you. But didn’t you all die or something?

Ancient Minister: I may have appeared to be crushed between the Thwomps, but I warped away in the nick of time and hid out for a while.

Grubba: After being trapped in an egg and used to beat Waluigi, I escaped. Later I found a Mushroom to bring me back to normal size!

Bill Gates: Bill too rich to die! Power of money revive Bill!

Waluigi: A tuna boat captured me and released me.

Ballyhoo: I’ve been here for a while, having been caught in a Subspace explosion. So of course it sent me here. But now Big Top is dead! Now we’re all here and ready to exact our revenge!

Shade and Red: Oh no!

Grubba: Now you will die!

Ancient Minister: Yes…

Suddenly two metallic, red arms burst out of the sides of the Ancient Minister! Ancient Minister then grabs Grubba and throws him at Bill Gates, knocking both out.

Waluigi: WAH! Ancient Minister, what are you doing?!

Ancient Minister: You may know me as the Ancient Minister, but I’m really-

He removes his garb.

Ancient Minister: ROB!

Everyone: ROB?!

ROB: Yes! Now it’s your turn!

ROB does an Arm Rotor attack, knocking Waluigi and Ballyhoo out.

Ballyhoo: You were loved…

Shade and Red: Huh?!

ROB: Let’s just call me Rob so the author doesn’t have to keep using caps so much. It gets tiring on the fingers.

Shade: What was that all about?

Rob: You see, I heard about Tabuu trying to take over your world, and I hate him for what he did to my people so I tried to get into a position of power so I could be trusted. Then when the time was right, I’d be able to take him down!

Red: You know when they wake up they’ll kill you.

Rob: I’ve done worse to them.

Red: … All right…

Suddenly the Daisy and Luigi statue from Daisy Circuit crashes on top of the unconscious members of the Bowling Team of Doom, and breaks.

Rob: Ooh… Oh well, they’ve survived worse.

Shade: More and more parts of the world are getting attacked, we gotta hurry!

Red: Look!

The three look over to find Rufus’s trophy. Red goes over and taps the base.

Rufus: Ugh… DARK RED! OH NO!

Red: No, I’m normal again.

Rufus: Oh. I guess Yux’s Randomizer brought you and Shade over there back into the story and to our rescue. And who’s that?

Shade: Oh, that’s Rob, AKA the Ancient Minister. He was apparently good all along and waited for the right time. The rest of the members of the Bowling Team of Doom actually were evil though and are unconscious and under that statue.

Then Peach’s Castle crashes right next to them. It’s ruined!

Rufus: Holy Goombas with a side salad! The world’s getting attacked by Subspace! That must be the bad news!

Rob: And when all of it is here, Tabuu will be unstoppable!

Rufus: We gotta stop him!

Shade, Red, Rob, and Rufus then continue. In another part of Subspace, Petey Piranha is asleep. He wakes up!

Petey Piranha: Ow… So that’s what that bomb did. What happened?

Prof. Frankly: You were used as a bad guy minion early in the story and were finally released from your hypnosis a few chapters later and haven’t been heard from since.

Petey Piranha: And the light a ways away?

Prof. Frankly: That’s Tabuu! You gotta stop him before all of the world ends up here!

Petey Piranha: Why are you conveniently here and telling me just what I need to know?

Prof. Frankly: I did it earlier in the story with a few other guys, so I wanted to do it again. Bye!

He leaves. Suddenly the main planet from the Snow Cap Galaxy appears and starts falling… right on top of Petey.

Petey: Yikes!

Petey moves just in time.

Petey: Uh, I guess I should help save the world. I haven’t had much action since that time I helped Larry avenge Bowser.

Petey flaps his leaves and flies. Shortly after that, he finds Fin’s trophy and P.T.’s trophy.

Fin: Why’d you do that?

Petey: I just saved you from Ganon!

Fin: You did not!

P.T.: What are you doing?

Petey: Someone told me I gotta stop Tabuu.

P.T.: Ooh, ooh, I wanna stop Tabuu!

Petey: Well too bad, I’m already doing it!

Fin: Hey, what about me?! Anyone ever think I wanted to do that?

Yux: Guys, you can all do it! Just shut up!

P.T.: Shut up, Yux. Wait, you’re alive?

Yux: Yeah, some hobo got sucked into Subspace and found my trophy and started chewing on it, then accidentally revived me… And that didn’t stop him from trying to eat me.

Fin: Wow, that’s so… lame. You’re lame.

Yux: I hate you all!

Meanwhile, Merlon warps into Subspace next to Purple’s trophy. He revives Purple.

Merlon: Axem Purple, it is time.

Purple: What?

Merlon: I was reading about prophecies and it turns out the Ancients predicted this whole ordeal!

Purple: Okay.

Merlon: The Ancients prophesized that you must learn a special maneuver to save the day, but you can only use it once. And once you use it, anything at all could happen. And you can’t tell anyone about the move until it’s time. And you’ll know when it’s time because you’ll be glowing as if you broke a Smash Ball.

Purple: I see. Okay, I’ll try to learn it, I guess.

Merlon: Okay, but we must hurry!

Meanwhile, Shade, Red, Rufus, and Rob are dodging falling objects and find Luigi’s trophy and revive him.

Luigi: Mamamia!

After some explaining…

Luigi: Oh. So now what?

Rob: We must defeat Tabuu!

Luigi: Oh my… Okay…

They keep walking ahead when suddenly a laser whizzes by, barely missing. They turn to find… the entire Shroob army with the Royal Shroobs!

Rufus: Aw man!

Shade: You were the current bad guys right as I was getting kicked out of the story!

King Shroob: My army… attack!

The Shroobs march forward.

Good Guys: Aw man!

Luigi: We’ll never defeat them all!

Suddenly the Mega Shell zooms by, taking out the aliens.

Rufus: That was convenient.

???: ROOAR!

The heroes turn again to find Fiery Dino Piranha.

Rufus and Luigi: NOT AGAIN!

Rob: All the enemies in this story seem to be reappearing all at once!

Fiery Dino Piranha starts charging forward and everyone gets out of the way. Shade moves his feet so he’s standing on his heels, and wheels come out of his shoes.

Rufus: I’ve heard of those shoes!

Shade skates along after Fiery Dino Piranha (who is unaware that the heroes dodged his charge) and spins into his tail, causing it to smack him in the head. Fiery Dino Piranha gets mad and turns around and starts chasing Shade.

Shade: Maybe that wasn’t the best idea!

Rufus, Red, and Luigi get out of the way. Rob sets out a Gyro block and starts charging up a shot. Finally he releases the spinning top and it flies over Shade’s head and into Fiery Dino Piranha’s mouth, and he chokes on it. Fiery Dino Piranha gets dizzy and falls over.

Luigi: That was close.

Rob: Come on, we don’t have enough time!

They hurry ahead. Meanwhile…

Merlon: And there you go. I’ll be watching from Flipside, I’m hoping you win!

Purple: Because good must always defeat evil?

Merlon: No, because after this, he’s gonna try to destroy Flipside and I’m too lazy to move.

Purple: …

Merlon warps away and then Petey, Fin, P.T., and Yux as well as Rob, Rufus, Shade, Red, and Luigi all appear. After some explanations…

Purple: Okay. Well I guess this is it, time to defeat Tabuu and save our world!

???: Wait!

Everyone turns to find Gadd.

Gadd: I got bored so I decided to come along.

Purple: All right. Let’s go, guys!

Purple, Shade, Yux, P.T., Fin, Luigi, Rufus, Red, Gadd, Petey, and Rob all go up the stairs leading to the bright ball, and enter.
Larry's Adventure II Ch. 20
So we begin the final story arc. We go into Subspace ourselves. By this point, Brawl had come out, so we're more accurate than we were in Chapter 4.

Now, there was actually another chapter before. This was originally Chapter 21. But the original Chapter 20 was pointless. It was basically a very long RPG battle against Youtube Poop characters, so the group could capture even more objects to reach Subspace. I'd had enough and decided to just have the heroes take the fight to Tabuu. So the argument at the start is a remnant of the original chapter. Everything else was from Chapter 21, which is now Chapter 20. So this will be a chapter shorter than on Lemmy's Land, because that chapter didn't go anywhere.

Tabuu is the final villain of the story, and the boss of the Bowling Team of Doom. So that technically means that we've been fighting them for most of the story. The Shroobs only had one arc and then one chapter, but the forces of Subspace have been the main enemy- only with a different focus in each arc.

P.T. asks if Tabuu is emo, which is another word I'm surprised Lemmy allowed. I saw someone else used it and thought I was able to. I know someone else was surprised when they read my chapter. And E. Gadd sure is callous. He's almost as bad as he is in Dark Moon, which was years after this came out. Oh and Red and Shade are back as the B-Team, ready to pick up the heroes' slack.

The Bowling Team reappears for one last go, but the Ancient Minister finally reveals his true colors as ROB and joins the heroes, having been a good guy all along. It's basically the same twist as in Brawl, but this time ROB had it all planned out. I think it works. We also get Petey to come in. This chapter is full of 11th-hour party members. This story did have the smallest main party out of all three stories.

I like Yux's explanation for how he came back from being a trophy. We also foreshadow a secret technique for Purple. It does come into play for the grand finale of this story. This chapter is all about wrapping things up so that we can move on into the final battle. The Bowling Team of Doom, the Shroobs, Red, and Fiery Dino Piranha are all addressed. I wanted the Koopa Bros. to appear, but I forgot. So technically, Luigi and Petey are working for ROB once again.

Anyway, this chapter is all right by me. A good way to set up for the battles to come, as well as put an end to previous villains. The Mega Shell was cheap, but what can you do?

Chapter 19: All (Shroob) Things

The gang made it back from Waluigi’s Island and then headed to the Star Carnival, where the last member of the Bowling Team of Doom (MC Ballyhoo) resided. After a very long search for him that quite possibly could drive a man mad, they found him. Ballyhoo then accidentally defeated himself and sucked the whole Star Carnival (and himself) into Subspace. And just when our heroes thought they were done, Princess Shroob returned!

Everyone stood there, shocked at Princess Shroob’s return.

P.T.: Oh no! Mrs. Butterworth, what should we do?

He pulls out a bottle of Mrs. Butterworth syrup.

Mrs. Butterworth: You need to buy more pancakes!

P.T. throws her over his shoulder, off the cliff, and ignores her screams.

P.T.: She’s right. Come on guys, we gotta go get six orders of pancakes!

Rufus: Hello, do you NOT see the crazy alien chick in front of us?

P.T.: Oh, my bad. Seven orders of pancakes!

Rufus hits his head on a tree.

Princess Shroob: *@)&%*@#&%_@ (Well I did skip breakfast…)

Everyone: What.

Fin: Oh, and I need to steal something!

The three get into a car and P.T. drives it off a cliff and then jumps out, leaving Fin and Princess Shroob to crash.

Purple: Uh…

Fin: I’m back! I don’t know how…

Purple: Well she’s been taken care of rather quickly. We should probably tell Gadd.

At his lab…

Gadd: Hmm, so you finally took care of the Bowling Team of Doom? And…?

Purple: We did it! We saved the world from the Bowling Team of Doom!

Gadd: And what’s your point?

???: Mail call!

Purple goes to get the mail.

Letter:
Dear Pesky Plumbers,

My seven Koopalings and I have taken over the Mushroom Kingdom. And the princess is now a permanent guest at one of my seven hotels! I dare you to find her if you can.


Purple: We gotta find the princess!

Rufus: (to you, yes you) And you gotta help us!

Purple: If you need instructions on how to get through the hotels, check out the enclosed instruction book.

Everyone Else: …

Yux: What was that?!

Purple: I have no idea. Oh, there’s something written at the bottom.

Letter:
Turn it over… Idiots.

He turns it over.

Letter:
Dear Fools,

We seem to be having trouble with your planet and our kingdom so we’ve invited you to Shroob City so we can talk this out. Plus we’ve relocated everyone in the Mushroom Kingdom to this city because- well because! Now come or we’ll bomb your planet!


Purple: When did they do this? And how are you still here if they took everyone?

Gadd: Don’t question plot holes! Now it looks like we’ll have to all go together!

P.T.: Why are you coming?

Gadd: Because!

There's a dinging of a tiny bell outside. Everyone goes outside to find an 8-seated tandem bike with a Shroob in the front seat.

Everyone: … Uhhhh…

Purple: All right, let’s go.

They all get on the bike and ride up to a giant, floating city in the sky.

Luigi: Wait, how’d that get there?!

They get to the entrance. They try to enter the main city but a Guardian Shroob stops them.

Guardian Shroob: Read the sign!

Everyone turns over to the sign:

Sign:
Welcome to Shroob City! If you want to enter, you have to give us something important to you! Enjoy our Shroob cuisine and talk to all the locals! See all the statues of our dictators- Er, royal family! Even go to the Vim Labs and pet the Swiggler! Enjoy your stay, ‘cause you’ll never leave ever again! So have fun (or perish)!

Purple: Okay, what do we sacrifice?

Suddenly everyone turns to Luigi.

Luigi: Aww…

Luigi throws in his Infinite Block from that one chapter before, and they’re then allowed into the city. They then pass a giant statue of what looks like Elder Princess Shroob, only male, bigger, and with a crown and a goatee.

Fin: Ew, what’s that?

Then the statue comes to life!

Battle over!

Yux: That was weird.

They head up to a giant castle.

Rufus: Hey guards, let us in!

Guardian Shroobs: Not by the hairs on our chinny chin-

Rufus: Now.

GS’s: Okay.

Luigi: Wait, there was another one of us…

Meanwhile at McShroob’s…

Shroob Waitress: Here’s your order!

P.T.: Thanks!

She hands P.T. a burger and then Hamburglar takes it!

Hamburglar: Robble robble robble!

P.T.: Hey, I wanna tell you something.

Hamburglar: Robble?

P.T. punches Hamburglar in the nose, causing him to faint. He then takes his burger back and starts eating.

P.T.: Robble that!

Back with the others…

Yux: Eh, he always comes back.

Luigi: Shut up, Yux.

Yux: I hate you all.

P.T.: I’m back!

They enter the building to find…

Rufus: … McYold’s?

They go to the counter.

Purple: We were told that the Shroob royal family was here. Where are they?

Cashier: You have to order first!

Purple: … I order you to tell me where they are.

Cashier: In the door on the left in the elevator, that’s how you’ll reach them.

Purple: Thank you.

Fin: And I’ll have a number two combo meal!

One lunch later, they go in the room and up to the 25th floor.

Luigi: Why’d we stop?

Purple: Maybe it’s one of those video game plot devices where if you try to ride all the way up, it’ll break and you have to go the long way, at least until the next elevator, which will put you in similar situations over and over until you get to the top. And since we stopped at the 25th floor, the next one will stop at the 50th, and so on until we’re at the top.

Everyone Else: What?

Purple: Yeah, I majored in Plotology in College.

Everyone Else: Oh.

Rufus: Lame.

They go and find a hallway with bathroom doors.

Fin: Oh thank DAD! I was holding that slushy from the first floor in for hours!

P.T.: I still can’t believe it took you that long to eat lunch.

Fin goes through a door and finds a crazy Swiggler.

Swiggler: ROAR!

Fin: All right, sorry!

Fin closes the door and then the Swigger bursts through the door and eats Fin.

Yux: He was useless anyway.

The Swiggler then charges for the rest of them.

Luigi: AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!

Swiggler: Gah! My ears! I mean… roar? Aw forget it.

Swiggler spits Fin out and walks away.

Rufus: This is getting stupid. And why do I feel as if some of us aren’t getting enough lines?

Fin goes into the next door to find it’s the elevator.

Fin: What kind of elevator needs to use the toilet?!

Purple: Did you say elevator? Come on, guys!

Fin: Wait!

Everyone: Ugh…

One bathroom break later, they go up to the 50th floor. A little girl Shroob is waiting.

LGS: Bwahaha, it’s me, Princess Shroob!

Yux: No you’re not.

LGS: Shut up! I’m a different Princess Shroob! There are many royal Shroobs in this family!

Yux: Oh.

Little Princess Shroob: Shut up! If the monster a few floors below didn’t tip you off, I’ll tell you. We’re trying to kill you! But…

A spotlight glows on LPS.

LPS: I don’t want to fight. I have all the money and toys and stuff that I can ask for… But I don’t have any… friends!

P.T. knocks her into a wall.

P.T.: No sob stories!

LPS: Uh-uh-uh! If you’re mean to me I won’t let you into the elevator! You’ll have to play with me!

Purple: Uh, huddle!

The group huddle together.

P.T.: Can I have the ball for this play? I never get it!

Purple: Ok- Wait, we’re not playing football! Okay, this sounds easy, we just have to entertain her and we’ll continue. Piece of cake!

Falco Lombardi: Piece of cake!

Purple: Who are you?

Falco: Hands off my bread!

Falco runs away.

Luigi: That was funny!

Rufus: It wasn't! And focus!

Purple: Aaaand break!

They break out of the huddle.

Yux: All right, we’ll play.

P.T. walks up closer with a square covered in a cloth.

P.T.: We’ll start by learning about-

He pulls it off to reveal a picture of hard times.

P.T.: The Great Depression! Yay!

Luigi punches him into a wall.

Luigi: That’s no way to entertain a little girl!

Fin: That’s right! Now, little girl, if you can guess the magic word, you’ll get a snack!

LPS: Oh boy whatisitwhatisitwhatisit-

Fin starts being a mime in a box.

LPS: You’re in a box?

Fin: That’s right! And you win… Sardine Jerky!

Luigi kicks him into a pile of teddy bears.

Luigi: You’re no better!

Rufus: Gee Luigi, what makes you the king of taking care of kids?

Luigi: That’s Mama Luigi to you, Rufus!

Rufus: … I’m going to ignore that.

Fin bursts out of the pile.

Fin: You’re right. Now for something different! It’s time to learn about the finer points of burglary!

Luigi hammers him underground.

LPS: YOU’RE ALL LAME!

Rufus: Uh- Here’s Yux!

He throws Yux to LPS.

LPS: Ew, it’s creepy! What does it do?

Rufus: Uh, anything. Except be tolerable.

Yux: I hate you all!

LPS takes out a twig and puts gum at the end and then sticks it in Yux’s back and then holds it all up and spins Yux around.

LPS: Ooh! All right, you can go!

Yux: I’m not a pinwheel!

LPS: Shut up!

Purple, Luigi, and Rufus head up the elevator to find a teenage male Shroob in casual-formal clothes.

Shroob: Welcome to the 75th floor, yo! I’m Prince Shroob and you’re about to be served!

Rufus: You’re not as cool as you sound, you know that?

Prince Shroob: Shut up!

Prince Shroob pulls out a flattened cardboard box and one of his nerdy friends plays a boombox and the song that plays when you fight King Kaliente starts. Prince Shroob then does incredibly amazing breakdance moves.

Prince Shroob: Top that!

Purple: Uh, which one of us can dance?

Luigi: Ooh, me! I was in DDR: Mario Mix!

Purple: Go crazy.

Luigi starts breakdancing, surprisingly better than Prince Shroob. Then he tops it off with a cooler and faster version of the dance he does when he uses Negative Zone in Brawl. The music speeds up as Prince Shroob starts flashing red and dances even better.

Luigi: Ugh…

Luigi keeps trying to dance better, and throws in some Thunderhand tricks to make him look better. Prince Shroob then dances even better and even starts rapping in his native tongue.

Luigi: Oh forget it!

Luigi takes the boombox from the prince’s friend and smashes it on Prince Shroob’s head, knocking him out.

Luigi: You got served!

Friend: Hey!

Rufus: Go home.

Friend: Okay…

The friend leaves. The boombox comes back to life as a zombie boombox when Dino Piranha’s theme plays, for the Swiggler is back!

Purple: Oh no!

Swiggler: I’M BACK! ROOOOAR!

Swiggler charges for the heroes but they all scatter. Luigi hides behind a wall with graffiti on it.

Luigi: He’ll never find me here!

Swiggler: Who are you talking to?

Luigi: Uh… MOMMY!

Luigi runs from the Swiggler. Purple gets on his back and rides him.

Purple: Easy there!

Purple is on the back segment. He slowly navigates to the front.

Luigi: Take your time, no worries!

Purple makes it to the antenna and then cuts it off. The music speeds up and Swiggler turns red!

Luigi: NOOOO!

Purple: Oh boy.

He’s faster and Purple is flung off into the wall.

???: Super Fist of the Nose Hair-

Swiggler stops and looks.

Swiggler: Oh no!

P.T. rows by in a gondola, knocking Swiggler and the boombox into the wall and finishing them both.

P.T.: -Gondola Tour!

Luigi: Where’d you get the boat?

P.T.: Nonya! Oh, and I found these two.

He picks up Fin and Yux.

P.T.: Now let’s leave before the girl comes back for revenge.

Rufus: Sounds good.

Luigi: Where were you?

Rufus: Unlike you, I was hiding in a good hiding spot!

Luigi: Jerk.

They find and wake Purple up and then they go into the elevator to the throne room. A Shroid is there.

Shroid: BEEP! DIE!

Six more Shroids appear and start shooting lasers.

DEFEATED: 0/7

Purple: Scatter!

Everyone runs around and the Shroids keep shooting. Fin appears on one of their heads and pulls out a screwdriver!

Fin: Ta-da!

Fin unscrews one of their arms (the one with the laser) and takes it for himself. He then aims it down and blasts the Shroid into scrap metal, but the blast knocks him into the ceiling. But he crashes into another Shroid, defeating that one too.

DEFEATED: 2/7

Purple runs by one and tries to slash it, but his axe only makes a dent.

Purple: Geez!

The Shroid then starts charging up a laser, when Yux breathes fire on it and melts it.

DEFEATED: 3/7

P.T.: This is not the one you’re looking for.

Shroid: BEEP! THIS IS NOT THE ONE I’M LOOKING FOR!

P.T.: You’d much rather die.

Shroid: BEEP! I’D MUCH RATHER DIE!

P.T.: You want to make a suicide pact with your friend over there.

Shroid: BEEP! DIE, BILLY!

Billy: BEEP! SELF DEFENSE!

Both: I’M A FIRIN’ MAH LAZAR!

They both kill each other.

DEFEATED: 5/7

Rufus gulps one up but it starts attacking him on the inside, so he spits it out. Luigi tries to hit it with his hammer, but no luck.

Luigi: Now what?

The Koopa Bros. battle theme plays as a black shell drops from the sky and breaks a Shroid. A green one does the same. Two more appear and the Koopa Bros. come out and do their pose.

Koopa Bros.: HERE COME THE KOOPA BROS.!

Rufus: How long is this chapter gonna be?!

Red: The king guy wanted us to deal with you, so watch out. You’ll get your saddle handed to you!

They stack up and shell toss for Rufus, but he sidesteps and they head for Purple. But he then jumps up and knocks Black’s shell away, causing Red’s to go flying. It bounces off the wall and Rufus eats it and spits it out at the throne, knocking Red out.

Rufus: What’s that about my saddle? BURN!

The shell stack is now after Luigi, but Luigi high jumps so it passes by and heads for P.T., who’s holding his Golden Hammer steady. He swings it and knocks both shells into the wall, getting rid of the two of them.

Black: … Where am I? Oh yeah. DIE!

Black shell tosses after Yux, but Yux breathes fire on him. But he slides through the flames and becomes a flaming shell that knocks Yux out. It bounces off the wall and chases after Fin. The shell zips around the room, and everyone nervously dodges. Purple notices the detached Shroid laser arm and throws it at the shell, knocking it into a hole in the ground. The song fades.

Luigi: Wait, if they worked for the Shroob guys, why did they defeat the robots?

Before anyone can think, King Shroob appears! He looks as the statue did, but you can tell now that his facial hair is orange.

King Shroob: Well done, fools. You’ve managed to defeat my oldest daughters and the Swiggler, outdance my son, distract my youngest daughter, dismantle all my Shroids, and defeat the Koopa Bros.

P.T.: Thank you, Captain Recap.

King Shroob: … Shut up!

Purple: Wait, where’d Gadd go? Wasn’t he with us at the start of the chapter?

Gadd: I’m still right here. Nobody noticed me though.

Purple: Oh… Weird. So you wanted to talk to us?

King Shroob: You’re not letting us conquer your world, so we tried hijacking one of your towns, but that didn’t work! So we had to build our own town and fill it with all your kingdom’s residents!

Luigi: Look, we’re not allowing you to take over our world!

King Shroob: In that case you’ll all die!

A big Shroob UFO lowers and King Shroob hops in and it grows spider legs.

P.T.: Oh, what, the big, powerful king with a whole army is too lazy to attack us directly?

The UFO shoots a laser at P.T.

P.T.: Never mind.

It starts moving about the room and shooting at everyone else. The laser gun is again picked up, now by Rufus, who shoots it at the UFO, but that fails. He then throws it at the UFO, followed by more eggs, but the UFO then throws mini bombs at Rufus, knocking him out. Fin finds Red Ninjakoopa passed out on the throne and throws him at the UFO, but it sucks him up in a tractor beam and then spits him out down the hole Black went down.

Fin: Oh crud.

The UFO then sucks up Fin in a tractor beam and also spits him out the hole. P.T. then comes up with a clipboard and a false mustache.

P.T.: Hmm, these legs aren’t up to code! Look at the termite damage! And the paint is hideous! We need to pimp this ride!

A leg kicks P.T. down the hole. Luigi pulls Green Ninjakoopa out of the wall and stuffs him into his shell and throws him at the UFO, disabling one leg. But then the shell starts sliding around, so the UFO retracts its legs and starts hovering around. Luigi keeps jumping and hammering and shooting thunder and green fireballs, but they bounce off and send Luigi flying into the hole. Rufus wakes up and does what Luigi did to Green, but with Yellow Ninjakoopa.

Purple: I don’t think that’ll work without the spider legs.

Rufus: Just watch!

Rufus throws the shell at the ceiling and it slams down on top of the UFO, grounding it. King Shroob comes out and kicks Yellow’s shell into the hole.

King Shroob: That’s it! I’m too old to fight directly-

Rufus: But you look so healthy.

King Shroob: It’s a cardboard cutout.

He turns to the side to reveal on the other side of the cutout is a weak, old body.

Purple: How’d we not notice?

King Shroob: So now I’m getting into my Absolutely Super Safe Barrier TM!

Rufus: I wasn’t listening, how safe is it?

Ignoring him, King Shroob goes to an X on the ground and then four walls rise around him, topped with a ceiling. We can’t see what he’s doing so we have to go by what he says he’s doing.

King Shroob: Bwahaha! Try attacking now!

Purple: … First try to attack us.

King Shroob: Okay, I think I may have a laser gun handy.

Zap!

King Shroob: OW! It bounced off the wall and… I’m stuck in here. And I’m too weak to attack the wall! I’m trapped forever! Well, not unless somebody presses the button near the throne. NOOOO!!! Well there’s one last trick I have left!

Click!

The throne slides over and a Subspace Bomb appears!

Gadd: Oh dear.

Purple: What’s with all the Subspace Bombs?!

King Shroob: I might be doomed but you’re going down as well!

Gadd: GET TO THE CHOPPA! NAO!

Rufus: Yeeeah… Anyway, it’s gonna take us forever to get out of here, and even then we need to find the others!

Purple: Uh, down the hole!

Everyone heads into the hole and hops down. They land in a giant garbage pile. Soon they manage to wake everyone up.

Gadd: Quick, maybe there’s something down that hall!

They all run down the hall and find a big tunnel that leads out, but they’re stuck on a platform.

Luigi: Now what?!

Fin: (like Captain Falcon) Come on!

The Falcon Flyer appears.

Luigi: How did- You stole it, right?

Fin: Yep!

Everyone hops aboard and it starts flying away. But Swiggler starts following, with big alien wings. He starts spitting meteors at the ship. He’s still red, but his antenna is taped back together.

Gadd: I could’ve sworn we all got rid of him!

Fin: How’d he grow wings?

Purple: Well since normal Wigglers can…

P.T.: I’ll handle this!

P.T. goes up to the top of the Flyer and throws Yux like a shuriken, and Yux flies so fast that he sends Swiggler into the wall and stabs his antenna into Swiggler as he pins him down. Then the Falcon Flyer finally escapes in time and lands on the beach.

Gadd: Well that was exciting! Too exciting! I can see why the author wanted me to stay at the lab instead of follow you!

P.T.: I thought it was your choice.

Gadd: Stop talking.

Yux: Hey guys, I managed to escape in the nick of time!

Luigi: Nobody cares.

Yux: Oh, and all that excitement caused me to get the ability to Randomize again!

Luigi: Still not caring.

Purple: What do we do?! Everyone in the Mushroom Kingdom except for us is in there!

Gadd: Uh, guys? My Tracker thing I only just told you about has bad news for us! It seems with the sudden activity of Subspace, it caused lots of previous areas that were bombed to go back into their bombed states!

Purple: That’s cheap and all-around stupid.

Gadd: I don’t care!
Larry's Adventure II Ch. 19
Like the Underwhere/Overthere chapter in the last story, this chapter is actually just a one-chapter pitstop in between the final two story arcs. And E. Gadd is tagging along!

So this chapter is a big send-up to Chapter 8 of Mother 3, New Pork City's chapter. A lot of the ideas are taken from it, but unlike Chapter 18, this chapter doesn't steal all of the jokes or anything. Might take some, though.

I'm surprised they all decided to give up Luigi's Infinite Block, rather than give up Yux. I guess they didn't consider him to be something of value. Heck, it's rather surprising that they even bothered to obey the rules. Though getting rid of Luigi's Infinite Block has me wondering why he never used it other than that one time. Oh well, it's gone now.

In the Lemmy's Land version, the math was off in the King Shroob Statue fight. The Smart Bomb didn't do enough damage to knock the statue's health down as much as it needed, so I adjusted the values. It's correct, now.

It is weird how the Shroobs can all speak perfectly clearly in this chapter. Oh well.

The thing about the boss themes playing on the 75th floor is because I was listening to them for those segments. This story was when I started listening to music while writing. Now I can't imaging my process without background music. That's another way this trilogy has shaped my writing process.

So the bit with the Shroids, Koopa Bros., and King Shroob was based off certain parts of Mother 3's final chapter. The Shroob daughter was based off a Bobobo segment, while the son was original.

Indulgent as it might be to say, I like P.T.'s burn on King Shroob. King Shroob's defeat was a toned down version of what happened to the Pig King. And E. Gadd, he was apparently with them for the whole chapter, but didn't have any involvement until near the end. I wonder if I forgot about him.

P.T. says "pimp this ride" in regards to King Shroob's attack vehicle. I'm surprised they allowed the word "pimp" on Lemmy's Land, even if it was in a different context. The fight with King Shroob seemed a little messy. I cleaned it up a little, but it could have been more climactic to begin with.

So the escape sequence is based off a bit in Subspace Emissary. And now all of the Mushroom Kingdom, save for our heroes, are trapped in Subspace with the Shroobs. This is it, the final story arc is beginning.

I liked this chapter, all things considered.

Chapter 18: The Star Carnival

Our heroes defeated Waluigi, but it was just an imposter. But then they beat him for real after long trials involving losing the ability to Randomize, and Waluigi Pinball. After a long ride back on Charold’s boat, our heroes head to Gadd’s lab.

Purple: Professor, how do we find MC Ballyhoo?

Gadd: Why do you keep coming to me?

Rufus: Because.

Gadd: He’s at the Star Carnival. Now go away, I’m pretending to invent something!

The guys get to the entrance of the Star Carnival. Suddenly, Fin’s phone starts ringing. It’s the Luigi’s Mansion theme!

Luigi: Hey, that sounds like my ring tone- You stole my phone, didn’t you?

Fin answers it. It’s a text message. It’s from Ballyhoo!

Message:
lulz so i herd you liek mudkipz? N E wai I C U mad it here now C if U can find me as well as… idk my bff Jill?

Purple: Wow he has NO grasp on proper spelling and punctuation.

Rufus: No, that’s how all text messages are done.

Purple: I just lost some more faith in humanity. Anyway, let’s go in!

They head to the entrance and then a fighter jet swoops down and shoots lasers.

Wolf O'Donnell: Can’t let you do that, Star Heroes!

Leon Powalski: Ballyhoo has ordered us to take you down.

Pigma Dengar: Luigi! Long time no see!

Andrew Oikonny: Ballyhoo’s enemy is my enemy!

Luigi: (to Andrew) Kiss-up! Wait, when did I meet Pigma?

Purple leaps up to Wolf’s Wolfen and slashes the windshield, picks up Wolf, and throws him to the ground. Leon, Pigma, and Andrew fearfully leave.

Purple: Now why can’t we “do that”?

Wolf: (weak) Because… of… THAT!

He faints as he points over there.

Fin: Oh no, a random mom!

Rufus: Oh forget it.

Everyone heads into the Star Carnival as Fin is writing at a desk.

Fin: Mommy, can I go to the carnival with my friends?

Mom: As soon as you’re done with your homework!

Fin: *sigh* Yes, Mom…

Inside…

Purple: Okay, everyone split up. We’ll have a better chance of finding him that way.

So they split up. Yux comes to a fishpond and feeds the fish because a random person threatened his life.

???: *gasp!* Nobody feeds the fishes!

??? takes Yux and runs off. Meanwhile, P.T. is in the Ferris wheel with a Koopatrol.

Koopatrol: Bwahaha! You have found me! Marry Goround!

P.T.: Your name’s Marry Goround and you work on a Ferris wheel? Is the roller coaster run by Carol Sell?

Marry Goround: Yes.

P.T.: All right, now I just need one more to win Humorously Named Roller Coaster Manager Bingo!

Marry: What?! I’m trying to win that! Now I shall kill you even harder!

Outside, Fin comes into the Carnival and walks up to the wheel.

Fin: Huh?

P.T.’s voice: So your parents were originally going to name you Cindy?

Marry’s voice: You don’t know the half of it!

The wheel comes to a stop and P.T. comes out, looking torn up.

P.T.: Fin, take care of the goldfish I won. I must go on without him!

He tosses it to Fin and goes back in.

Fin: I wonder how much I can get for this online…

P.T.’s voice: So you’ve been reading this story too?

Marry’s voice: Yeah, I got to the part where Larry and his friends are sent to the Aftergames!

P.T.’s voice: That’s the last story.

Mary’s voice: Whoops.

The wheel comes to a stop and P.T. comes out, looking torn up.

P.T.: Fin, take care of the goldfish I won. I must go on without him!

He tosses it to Fin and goes back in.

Fin: Didn’t this just happen?

Fin looks and sees no goldfish in the other bag. Inside the wheel, it looks like Marry and P.T. are in space. And P.T. doesn’t look torn up.

Marry: Bwahahaha! Now it’s time for doom!

P.T.: (I have an idea! … So this is what thinking is like.) I haven’t used one of these in ages! Super Fist of the Nose Hair: Time for French Toast!

P.T. spits chewed up French toast at Marry.

Marry: Ew!

The Mega Shell then runs over Marry and the setting returns to normal and P.T. comes out. Meanwhile Purple and Rufus reach a mini-train ride that goes through a tunnel.

Purple: Okay Rufus, you ride the mini-train and see if he’s hiding in the tunnel.

Rufus: Fine, but you owe me!

Rufus gets on the mini-train and rides. When it gets to the tunnel all that comes out is a giant baby.

Purple: What?!

Rufus then walks up to him.

Rufus: What happened?

Purple: Uh, nothing.

Meanwhile Fin is licking a sucker in a spinning cup ride.

Fin: Ah, like taking candy from a baby. Wait, that is what it was. Good thing I stole its tickets too, or I couldn’t ride this!

???: Hello, Fin.

Fin: Gasp! Number 9!

A giant number 9 shows up.

9: Yes, and now you’ll pay for stealing all that stuff from me!

P.T.: Not so fast!

P.T. flips 9 over so he looks like a 6.

9: SIX?! I CAN’T LOOK LIKE A SIX! NOOO!!!

9 faints. Purple and Rufus show up.

Purple: Guys, this place is insane and did you find him? Wait, has anyone seen Luigi and Yux?

Rufus: Well nobody cares about Yux so it doesn’t matter. But I don’t know where Luigi is.

P.T. and Fin: Neither do I. And we didn’t find Ballyhoo. Why are we talking in unison?

Rufus: Oh well. All that’s left is the Haunted House.

Meanwhile, Luigi is in a crowd before a stage and curtains open to reveal a cat on a pedestal.

Cat: Tangerines.

The crowd applauds.

Luigi: This is so stupid.

Regardless of Luigi’s position, they head for the Haunted House.

P.T.: Ooh, this place is really scary! I heard this hour is when the zombies come out!

Purple: Stop it! I’m scared enough!

They come up to a wooden dummy kicking an unconscious Yux.

Fin: No, my money! Now he’ll never repay me! Who are you?

Dummy: I am Dummy Man! By saving money on my design, I bought this ability to reflect attacks! And this fool fed the fishes! I hate when people feed animals I hate!

Rufus: Listen, I’m kind of not feeling like fighting yet, so can you tell us how you and Yux got in this situation?

Dummy Man: Fine, let’s see on the big screen on the ceiling.

Everyone looks up as it starts.

P.T.: This won’t be good for my neck.

Flashback/Video!

Dummy Man is dragging Yux into the Haunted House but then Yux breathes fire on Dummy Man and goes behind a bush.

Dummy: Where did you go?!

Yux: (All right, he should be distracted since it’s a big house.)

Yux turns to find a campfire with lots of undead around it, and P.T.

Zombie: All right, so we’ve all agreed that Fred is the new Treasurer.

Boo/Fred: Ha! Today the Order of the Undead, tomorrow the world, the day after any galaxies visible from the Terrace Dome, and by next week the whole universe! And then all dimensions by the end of the month!

P.T.: Yeah, yippee, whatever. Who brought the chicken? … Hi, Yux.

Yux: Uh, what’s going on?

P.T.: Why, it’s your wedding!

Yux: What?!

Bride: You’re not telling me that you’re having second thoughts, are you?!

Yux: I didn’t even know I had first thoughts!

Fin appears and starts dancing.

Fin:
I just made a mistake:
I ate most of the wedding cake!
Please don’t tell the bride-
Or she will have my hide!

Dummy Man: I found you!

Yux: I hate you all!

Dry Bones: Best meeting ever!

P.T.: Quick, guys! Everyone fuse together!

Then all the zombies glow and fuse together into a giant robot!

Fin: Aww, I remember when I was feeding him with a bottle!

Zombot (monster): YOU DARE BRING LIGHT INTO MY LAIR?! YOU MUST DIE! Only then will I be able to forgive myself for that day…

Flashback within a flashback!

Zombot is eating in a diner and dips his French fry into his ketchup twice.

Waitress: NO DOUBLE DIPPING!

Zombot: Ahh, I’m sorry! I’m sorry!

Flashback over!

P.T.: Yeeah… Come on Fin, it’s time to go.

Fin: Huh? All right.

As they walk out…

Fin: You know, I thought my monster was pretty cool until that whole diner flashback.


FLASHBACK VIDEO OVER!

Purple: Ow my neck!

Dummy Man: Now die!

Rufus: I don’t think so!

Rufus throws an egg at Dummy Man but Dummy Man holds his hand out and it makes a mini void that sucks the egg up. He then holds his foot out and a mini void appears and the egg shoots out of it at Rufus.

Rufus: I hate this guy.

Purple: P.T., distract him.

P.T.: Yes Mom.

P.T. tries to hit Dummy Man with his Golden Hammer but a mini void on Dummy Man’s face sucks it up and comes out near it, hitting P.T. At the same time Purple tries to get Dummy Man in the back with his axe but a similar thing happens, nearly hitting Purple.

Dummy Man: The voids can see for themselves!

Purple and P.T.: Crud!

Dummy: Plus I can also replay other attacks!

He makes more voids and eggs start flying out. As Purple and P.T. frantically dodge, Fin waltzes over and unscrews Dummy Man’s head, stopping all his attacks and Dummy Man’s voids.

Purple: Crud.

Yux: … Huh? What happened?

Robot voice from Dummy Man’s head: Warning, removal of head while mini voids are in play will cause self-destruction of said head. Explosion in 5, 4, 1-

Everyone: What?!

RVFDMH: Just kidding! 5, 4, 3, 2, 1!

The head explodes! All that’s left of the Haunted House is a crater. Shockingly, everyone survives.

Purple: … Hey, is everyone here? Wait, where’s Fin?

P.T.: Huh? Oh, I think he said something about the bathroom.

Luigi walks up.

Luigi: What did I miss?

Soon they’re all in front of the bathrooms and they go into the bathroom. P.T. kicks Yux out.

P.T.: Boys only!

Yux: I am a boy!

They go inside and start searching.

MC Ballyhoo: Hey guys, I heard you’re looking for MC Ballyhoo!

P.T.: Yeah, now help us!

Ballyhoo: Okay!

Purple: Wait, aren’t you Ballyhoo?

Ballyhoo: What? I guess I am! Big Top! Activate!

A big glass bubble comes out of the top of Big Top with Fin inside.

Fin: Hey guys!

Purple: Let him go, MC!

Ballyhoo: Never! As the Master of Catastrophes and the last member of the Bowling Team of Doom, I’m afraid you can’t do that!

Wolf: Can’t let you-

Ballyhoo: Get back to your post!

Wolf leaves, crying.

Luigi: Why did you join the Bowling Team of Doom?

Ballyhoo: I needed to join a team to show off my bowling skills to my mother. And to get rid of all the pent-up rage!

Rufus: From what?

Ballyhoo: From when people confuse me with Chuck Quizmo! It makes me mad! I can’t stand it! So now…

Big Top aims the glass bubble at Yux and shoots it.

Yux: Ow.

Fin: How did this not break?

Big Top then turns off to the side, leaving only the rim of the hat on Ballyhoo, and a Subspace Bomb appears on it! But the weight causes Ballyhoo to fall over.

Ballyhoo: Like it? Ancient Minister added that ability into Big Top for Big Top’s birthday!

Big Top: I wanted a pony!

Ballyhoo: Now you have nowhere to run while Subspace sucks up this whole area in 60 seconds! How do you feel about being so doomed?

Purple: I don’t know about the rest of us, but I feel like you can’t top yourself with any more stupidity.

Ballyhoo: Huh?

Luigi: Yeah, we’re just gonna see ourselves out while you stay here stuck to your bomb.

Ballyhoo: Oh no! I never got to see Paris!

Rufus: France?

Ballyhoo: No, Hilton!

Paris Hilton: That’s hot.

Rufus: Leave.

She does and everyone grabs Fin in his glass bubble and runs out. A few seconds before the explosion…

Ballyhoo: Wait, I can just take off the hat!

Big Top: Some friend you are!

Ballyhoo slides his head out from under the hat/bomb and runs off, but doesn’t even make it out of the bathroom before the whole place is engulfed in Subspace. The heroes are on a cliff, watching.

Purple: That was possibly the stupidest mini-quest yet.

Luigi: At least now the Bowling Team of Doom is finally finished! Now what?

Then an escape pod of some sort crashes behind them! They turn to see…

Heroes: PRINCESS SHROOB!
Larry's Adventure II Ch. 18
Chapter 18! This was the last chapter of the first story, but we still have quite a ways to go for this one.

This chapter... is almost entirely a ripoff of the Jelly Jiggler arc of Bobobo. I got called out for that on one of the reviews I received, and I told them it was intentional. They thought it was a sign that I was running out of material. ... Though I really should have made this chapter more original. Other than Star Wolf, it was more or less stolen entirely.

It's weird how Axem Purple loses faith in humanity when Luigi, Gadd, and P.T. are the only humans around. That line about text messages wasn't supposed to be some kind of statement, it's simply how Purple felt.

Not ALL the jokes are taken from Bobobo in this chapter, but a good deal of them are. The best ones are. Not to mention the whole progression of events.

The survived that explosion, to the narrator's surprise. Their continued existence always seems to be confusing the narrator. And I have to say, it's a little funny how Luigi is the only party member who missed the haunted house segment.

MC Ballyhoo, the host of Mario Party 8, is the final member of the Bowling Team of Doom, and he goes out fairly quickly, just as quick as Waluigi. Ballyhoo would later go on to appear in Larry's Adventure 3, no longer affiliated with his team.

And at the end, Princess Shroob appears. Arc 3 is over, the Shroobs are in the picture once again. See what I said about alternating villains?

So... this chapter is mostly a ripoff. As such, I can't say it's great as an original piece. I liked a lot of the jokes, but that's because I liked the jokes on the show they came from. I do think I should have added more of my own jokes, because I did a little bit. I could've done more.

And I'm sorry, I need to say it, but: Chuggaaconroy annoys the crap out of me.

I know he's a nice guy and all, but he is so obnoxious (on purpose, even) that at times it's hard to sit through the videos, it's easy to remember why I stopped watching them for a while.

Sure ProtonJon acts as a foil to him, but man. If I were in Jon's shoes, I'd probably be harsher than he already is.


You know Chugga, there are more ways to entertain an audience than through group dysfunction, oddly enough.

The guy's almost universally loved throughout the Youtube Let's Play fanbase, so I just felt the need to vent. I mean it could be worse, at least he's not Pewdiepie.

I like to stay true to my principles, be honest, and have integrity. I try to be nice, but I realize I haven't been the best example of that. The temptations of sarcasm and frustration get me sometimes. I like a lot of things.

But if I hate something, you'll know.

The only thing left that I care to transfer is the Larry's Adventure trilogy, and I'm debating whether or not I want to just transfer them or somehow remaster them.

Just do what you think is best. Remastering them may be a good idea if you are looking to improve them.
