What the theme music in Brawl really means is...

***For those of you who were asking, we didn't intend to steal any ideas from the God of War 2 theme, the Yu-Gi-Oh song, or any of the Youtube videos. I didn't know several of those existed. We just thought of this idea ourselves and figured it would be fun to animate.***

Oh yeah, and HERE are the REAL LATIN lyrics straight from the game in case you were wondering:

Audi famam illius.
I have heard of his rumor.

Solus in hostes ruit
He alone rushed into his enemies

et patriam servavit.
and saved his homeland.

Audi famam illius.
I have heard of his rumor.

Cucurrit quaeque tetigit destruens.
He ran across the lands and everything he touched was destroyed.

Audi famam illius.
I have heard of his rumor.

Audi famam illius.
I have heard of his rumor.

Spes omnibus,mihi quoque.
He gave everyone hope, as he gave me.

Terror omnibus,mihi quoque.
He gave everyone fear, as he gave me.

He is now

iuxta me.
next to me.

Ille iuxta me.
He is now next to me.

Socii sunt mihi.
My allies are with me.

qui olim viri fortes
My allies, who were once heroes

rivalesque erant.
and old enemies, are here.

Saeve certando pugnandoque
As they fiercely competed and battled

sprendor crescit.
their splendor grew.

Ah, this is so nostalgic. I originally wrote a review here in 2008, which amounted to something like "BAHAHAHA THIS IS HILARIOUS!11!1"

Eloquent, I know.

But now that NG allows you to delete/edit your old review, I really want to leave a better review here. This was, and still will be, one of the funniest Smash Bros related animations in my eyes. It's simple but oh so amusing to watch.

Also I love how the "spoon fair" part featured Pac-man way before he actually made it into Smash.


Well, this was unexpected... Plenty of crazy things and animation twists! But, ya'know... after I listened to the theme a couple times, I thought I heard the names of some of the characters. Coincidence?


I loved how you included the real lyrics. That's probably what make me give this such a high score. It was fun to see the goofy animation. This reminded me of animutation. Dang, I miss that stuff. They just did this better.

It was funny how you put Pac-Man there. He did eventually become part of the game! Well really, everyone has. You just have to buy the right versions. I'm used to stuff like this.
