You hear the sounds of cheering and clapping as you approach the arena. You nerves start to tingle as you approach.
You enter the building, stepping up the walkway. Your excitement grows as you see people rushing around trying to find their ways to their seats. You look down at your ticket...

So you see a lad dressed in uniform standing against the wall. You walk over to him and show him your ticket.
Right this way! He says, snapping to attention with a smile, and taking you to a suite.
Upon entering the suite, you see the field before you. A large screen is across the way, with a view very similar to yours through the window. Glancing around you see surrounding the field at ground level are a bunch of suites similar to yours. A few of the other suites have people you recognize.

You cheer as you see your favorite player on the field. As you wave your hands wildly about, you notice the player do the same. Curiously, you watch as the player mimics your actions in your suite. Rhomp rhomp
A loud voice comes over the PA.
Ladies and Gentlemen and Creatures of all ages. Welcome to Universal Smash Brothers 4. Your players are ready, your seats are filled. I only got one question.
ARE YOU READY TO RUMBLE?
The fans go wild. A horn sounds.
You spot across the way a friend of yours. You try to get his attention by pointing and waving at him. You notice your player on the field go and attack another one. The other attacks back.
Hey, that hurt.
It's at this point you notice the writing underneath each of the suite windows.
Player Controller Box.
As the realization that you are not just a viewer of this game, but a participant, sweeps over you you figure out what you have to do.
You must fight to stay alive. You must fight to win.
Opening scene by Supagoof
3rd Party Win Conditions:
Sonic: Super Sonic - Collect all 7 Chaos Emeralds. (Chaos Emeralds are tradable items distributed randomly at the beginning of the game. Holder can use to get +1 point with a 2 day cooldown, and does not stack with other Emeralds. If holder dies, emerald(s) goes to last person to point at that person, random if N/A. Sonic gains a one-time use self-bane plus a kill ability when he has all seven emeralds)
Snake: Espionage - Discover the identity of all living Pokemon characters (Pikachu, Jigglypuff, Pokemon Trainer, Lucario, and Mewtwo)
Sly Cooper: Master Thief - Steal Carmelita's police files, or outlive her. (Files are stolen during normal Cluefinder use if he targets Carmelita. Successful file steal will grant Sly a two-use scry item)
Carmelita Fox: I'll get you Cooper! - Arrest Sly Cooper, or outlive him. (Carmelita is granted an extra life upon arresting Sly)
Banjo-Kazooie: Jinjo Rescue - Must protect at least half the players from a randomized list given at the game's start. (List will be roughly five or so)
Pheonix Wright: Not Guilty! - Choose a player. Must protect your 'client' player from lynch throughout the game. If that player is night-killed, select a new client.
Master Chief: Alien Killer - Eliminate all the 'space' characters (Covenant Elite, Fox, Krystal, Falco, Wolf, Samus, Olimar, Ness, and Lucas)
Assorted additional rules:
1) Autolynch is set at 3 days of inactivity.
2) Day and night is 48hrs. Might be reduced depending on speed of play.
3) Mass role gathering is NOT ALLOWED.
4) Role claiming and Narrator PM posting is not allowed either.
5) Only team affiliation will be revealed upon death.
6) ...except for 'Classic' roles such as the baner, devil, seer/fool, and masons.
7) Masons do not have individual abilities. The specific names are just flavor.
8) If Sephrioth attempts to control someone's ability without knowing it, and gets it wrong, the ability fails and he is penalized with a 1 day cooldown.
9) If K. Rool is killed the first time, and there are NO other Villains, he will be resurrected immediately.
10) If an ability is voided that is on cooldown, the cooldown will be extended by one instead.
11) I reserve the right to drop rocks on anyone who severely ticks me off.
12) Despite the potential for real funny PMs, all failed abilities will receive 'ability failed' message. Unless you ask me to make one in the flavor of your choice. Such PMs will be non-official though.
13) Keep an eye out for minigames! If I can get them working, you will be able play for prizes!
14) "Abilties" and "Special Abilities" refer to the abilities described above. Villain Night Kills can not be blocked unless otherwise specified.
15) Ties in votes are broken with the person reaching the tie first being lynched.
16) You may PM the Narrators with one role you would like to be, and one role you would not like to be. We may or may not ignore it, so don't try to get any ideas.

(I point at Istari because he's not Link and that's all I have to go on. Statistically if X is the number of good guys roles and Z is the number of total roles, then most people have a X/Z chance of being a good guy, since they could be anybody including Link. However, Istari has X-1/Z chance of being a good guy since he can't be Link. Since X-1 is less than X, he has a less likely chance of being a good guy.
Since he has a less likely chance of being a good guy, he has a higher chance of being a bad guy.
34/50 = 68% chance of being a good guy
33/50= 66% chance of being a good guy.)

A masked figure slowly approaches the ticket booth and whips out her entry ticket, holding the slim sliver of paper between her index and middle finger before sending it spiraling towards the young man passing out tickets, the paper striking and adhering to his forehead like a ninja scroll.
The Boy frowns and yanks it off, scowling angrily at the masculine woman (or effeminate man? it was hard to tell...) "You could have just -handed- it to me!"
"Ah... but that is infinitely less fun..." the woman (and her voice does strongly imply that that is what she is) answers, before pointing violently at the ground and vanishing in a puff of smoke.
The Lad sees no more her, but an explosion of smog abruptly erupts behind Dark Comet, the woman offering "Ah... I... uh... wrong both?" meekly as she becomes aware of not being alone...

Aemoh, because Zar Peter isn't playing so I might as well go with the other end of the alphabet.
I won the WW Game Discworld I (Dei in Machina) by selling sausages ina bun to more than 50% of the surviving player, I showed myself as a cunning, greedy and worthy CMOT Dibbler and all I got is this lousy signature line.
((Wolfbane because I almost never get to point at him! And for the moment, I can do so without fear of him being lynched. Woot!))
A tiny little dragon, crimson in color, about the size of a cat, flies around the arena. Her voice is squeaky, little wings flapping like mad to keep her up. Several people comment on the cute little flying cat, which just makes her angry. Finally frustrated, she unleashes her flame breath! - and browns someone's toast. They thank her, and she flies off, still grumbling. "Foolish humans. I am Ruby, a mighty dragon! They will all rue the day, oh yes."
An immaculate white-and-red wolf trots into the suite, accompanied by a bouncing little sprite. Her first action is to look down into the arena; his is to hop to the suite's minibar and try to open it. Failing, he bounces back to the wolf.
"Look, Ammy! There's our contact - what is-" Ammy - or Omikami Amaterasu - flips the little bug in the air and catches him in her mouth, before looking around. There might have been a fleeting shadow leaving its hiding-place behind the door; there might have been hidden eyes in the wall. Either way, Wandering Poet Issun needed to be quieted. After all, their contact required the utmost secrecy. There were those who would take advantage of their deal, after all.
She spits him out onto the controller, and Issun hops up and down in fury. "What the heck was that for, Ammy? I nearly suffocated in there!" He looks around him as Ammy shakes her head. "Hey, what's this? Looks like a controller of some kind! I bet if I hit the buttons and you used your Celestial Paintbrush, we could really help our contact out! Heh heh heh!"
On the other side of the arena, Trixie notices a giant colorful bomb suddenly manifest itself next to her player, exploding for massive damage. She looks up to see a white wolf on the opposite side, wagging its ink-stained tail.

Nyula slips into the shadows and ends up at the unattended jewelery booth. When the attendant returns, he finds that every item has vanished from his booth, along with an unopened can of NinTenCoke.
"Hey! Who's nicked my stuff?!"
Nyula checks that her Pokemon-to-Human translator is on, and suanters over to the stand.
"I saw everything!" she says, with an innocent look on her face. "It was that guy over there! The Meowth Hand thingamababble!" Nyula points one of her claws at Reinholdt.
The attendant says "Thanks!" and goes off to confront Reinholdt. Nyula shakes her head in disbelief and opens her can of NinTenCola.
