|Reviews for The Smashy Amazing Race|
| GameManiac chapter 13 . 8/1/2014
I said that the puff balls were dead to me in my last review...
That thought on them both aside, if it wasn't for Jigglypuff's eureka moment, neither she nor Kirby would've won. Which is odd of her to spontaneously channel intellect, considering her bizarre and hilarious behavior throughout this final chapter.
You'll see me again, when I tackle your season three. And if my memory is correct, you bring in the newcomers from Super Smash Bros. Brawl.
One in particular, which my FanFic series revolves around.
| GameManiac chapter 12 . 7/30/2014
Part of me believes that it takes a certain level of insanity to write a FanFic as random as this. And in my eyes, that's what makes me enjoy this story, and basically your overall series.
You'd think Bowser would notice all of those cadavers lining his shell. But this is a "badfic" as you called it one time, and everybody is an idiot in some sense.
My vote on who wins, as much as I don't like picking favorites, is on Bowser and Ganondorf. Second would have to be Samus and Falcon. Kirby and Jigglypuff, quite honestly, can just pop to death. They're cute and humorous, but dead to me now.
| GameManiac chapter 11 . 7/27/2014
If ignorance is bliss, then what is stupidity? Because honestly, in real life, no one can possibly be that stupid or that oblivious.
My guess is that both Kirby and Jigglypuff will be eliminated next leg. I feel that, with how lackadaisical they both were, when Ganondorf was contrast, would make them the most likely team to get eliminated next.
Of course, I could be wrong. And I could also spoil the outcome by scrolling right down to the bottom. But where's the fun in that?
| GameManiac chapter 10 . 7/21/2014
When you get down to only so few teams, you almost don't want any of them to get eliminated. But alas, someone had to go, and it was Ness and Yoshi.
To summarize my favorite highlights of this chapter: Ness getting his race car stuck down, Samus cheering Falcon for once, the feigned car crashes with Jigglypuff and Kirby, and the oddly "epic" feel of the last two remaining teams combating it out against each other.
I'll leave it here because it's 1:40 AM where I live and when I left this review, so I'm calling it for the night.
| GameManiac chapter 9 . 7/15/2014
Not gonna lie, I actually thought that both Captain Falcon and Samus were eliminated there. And in a way, you do have a point about Ness and Yoshi being the least liked teams at this moment. My guess is that they'll both be eliminated in the next leg. But then again, anybody can.
I'll also be honest here, it's a bit tough to leave reviews to this series of yours because each of your chapters are increasingly random. I'll just say that my favorite part was with Kirby entering a restaurant where it was revealed that he ate the children in there.
| GameManiac chapter 8 . 7/7/2014
All of a sudden, I'm tempted to visit a tropical island or something. But the more dominating thought than that was the fact that I've yet to finish Super Mario Sunshine.
The humor is as random and as bizarre as it often is. From Bowser and Ganondorf envying Kirby's and Jigglypuff's cuteness appeal, to Samus getting spittle in her helmet, to the oh so clever "Hayoo" bit, to Bowser choking on a swallowed Princess Peach.
I expected Popo and Young Link to be eliminated. They basically overstayed their welcome.
| GameManiac chapter 7 . 6/22/2014
It's a little cliché to have the final stretch of a race come down to a neck-and-neck heat, but it makes the overall outcome much more entertaining to read.
So Peach and Mario got eliminated... They were a good team, if you asked me. They had that idiotic humor going well for them.
Chapter 8, here I come.
| GameManiac chapter 6 . 6/21/2014
Coincidentally enough, I have a surplus of music saved away on my smartphone that would qualify for dramatic orchestral music. And every time I saw the cue for dramatic orchestral music, I kept thinking about the last part of "The Planets, Op. 32: I. Mars, The Bringer of War".
What else can I say aside of the fact that the denizens of the Pokémon world most likely eat Pokémon as much as they use them for fighting.
| GameManiac chapter 5 . 6/20/2014
I don't know if I've said this or not yet, but I have actually never watched "The Amazing Race" before. But if I were to start now (which is unlikely), then I'm sure I would follow the overall layout of it pretty well.
"Wells can be used to retrieve water."
A lot of deaths brought back to life for the sake of continuity, a lot of humor (especially by Peach's killer pets, Bowser's childishness, the author, and Samus' spite to Captain Falcon), and a lot of incompetence by a couple of the teams.
Just another enjoyable chapter from you.
| GameManiac chapter 4 . 6/6/2014
I wonder if it takes a certain amount of creativity to write this randomly and write such scattershot humor that always hits its mark, no matter how big the spray and use of ammo.
...What I'm trying to say is that I still find the spontaneous writing of yours in this series to be unpredictable and quite entertaining.
Some highlights that I can think of is the bit where Master Hand abruptly bought the fish as though they were illegal narcotics. Another is when Bowser lackadaisically entered the lava while Captain Falcon wasn't melted away. Or when Peach's muscles appeared so dysfunctional.
My favorite was the bits involving the ROFL Pony. It would make sense for a team to ride him (or her?) even though they didn't, and the recurring joke about wells was like beating on a dead horse.
...You should have an LOL something for that.

So...what have I learned after reading this chapter?
One: it seems to be a common reference and/or stereotype that fan girls are "idiots". I wouldn't know that because I'm a man, but I am a fan. And fans are often loyal to what they love, especially when someone bashes their fandom. Just ask a Brony or a Nintendo fan.
And two, I learned that despite the apparent randomness and humor throughout this series, there's definitely creativity to be identified. Anagrams are, if you ask me, clever, and I'll give you credit for executing one properly.
| F-ZeroSamus chapter 5 . 5/29/2014
Very interesting fic. I like it and its randomness thus far; however, the only thing that bugs me is that samus tells falcon to hurry up its like, nigga falcon's faster than you lol

How unlucky can I get? Didn't I say I was rooting for Mewtwo and Pichu in my last review? And whoop-de-f**king-do! They're eliminated! Ah well...at least I don't care enough, since I'm still getting my several doses of laughter from this hilariously random series.
Highlights that I can think of would be a good handful of them involving Fox McCloud. I think he has some daddy issues, acting as though he were a bipolar schizophrenic. Also the part with him and Krystal (lol unsurprising cameo there!) was a bit unexpected to me, yet entirely your style. The only thing wrong though was Marth's joke about "hitting the chick with a stick". I've seen enough hentai/Rule 34/porn/fan art to smell an innuendo before it appears.
On a side note though, I like Krystal. She's one of my favorite female protagonists. She's a character I wish is added to the roster of the next two Super Smash Bros. games. So seeing her here made me enjoy this chapter a bit more, especially since I've played all of the Star Fox games and know of their universe.
Another highlight I found interesting was Mario accessing Mario Paint on Peach's laptop. She must be running an SNES emulator or something...
Hard to say who I'm rooting for. I'm enjoying the distinct humor from some of the teams. From Fox's mental instability, to Peach's stupidity, to Bowser's sensitivity. I'm just here now for the humor.
| GameManiac chapter 1 . 5/4/2014
I'm back! And I'm reading through this story now!
It's quite hard for me to review what I just read, mostly because of all of the organized randomness among the teams. But with that being said, I'll just point out a few moments that were highlights to me.
Nana killing Luigi, then having her drag Luigi's cadaver to the end... Dark humor, I love it.
Bowser and Ganondorf... I wonder when Ganondorf will catch on that Bowser is an absolute softie.
Mario and Peach... Why exactly does Mario bother rescuing that airhead (as depicted by you).
Lastly, C. Falcon and Samus... I hope they last long enough for me to see how creative you have Samus put him down.
That's about it for me for now. And while it's way too early to be predicting who will emerge victorious, my money right now is on Mewtwo and Pichu, only because I love Mewtwo.
