Surprise Party 4 - An AVALANCHE of Characters

The Shinra Corporation is up to no good, rumors of impending doom are flying like a one-winged angel, and once again, a group of adventurers have come together to save the world. Of course, this is Surprise Party, so there are actually three groups, they're significantly more makeshift than most, and if you thought you knew how the story of Final Fantasy VII goes, the Smash Fiction crew is here to make it go a very, VERY different way! Of course, you don't need to know everything about...


118 - Milo and Otis vs. Homeward Bound (feat. Brad Bultman)

It's once again time for hackles to rise, fur to fly, and Kit to get unreasonably excited about animals as Smash Fiction goes on its very own incredible journey! Cruella DeVille is in the market for some new formal attire and has gotten her evil hands on five of the most iconic cats and dogs of 80s and 90s kids movies. However, thanks in part to the blundering of Cruella's credulous cronies, Horace and Jasper, our adorable fluffy heroes have managed to escape, and now face a daunting...


Extraordinary League 32 - Once More, With Fearing

Times of peace are few, far between, and all too short for our world-hopping heroes. After indulging in some well-earned downtime, the League summons Team Ohana for a new mission... and it quickly becomes clear that this new world is going to be much more dangerous than anything they've encountered before. Stitch helps Lace cultivate a new skill set; Luna seeks redemption; Nico creates a sweet new ride; Dante grotesquely misuses a dessert topping; and Mordin realizes just how much he's...


117 - Hot Fuzz vs. Rush Hour

When an evil crime lord grows powerful enough to make multiple sovereign nations break into a cold sweat, there's really only one thing to do: call in a pair of hilarious but effective buddy cop comedy duos who cook some fools and don't play by the rules! Chief Inspector Lee of the Hong Kong police department is on the case, and still hasn't managed to shake off his partner, Detective James Carter of the LAPD. Rush hour has arrived once again, and Carter and Lee are ready to stop the...


Collaboratory 4 - Semi-Sweet

It's ladies' night down in the lab this week on Smash Metafiction as Claire, Kit, Liz, and Meganbob put their heads together to create a story of mystery, superpowers, and romance unlike any other! An aristocrat, a warrior, a rockstar, and a spirit of mischief come together unexpectedly in a tale of intrigue. Join us for a film that dares to tackle the real questions, like: Just how jacked can a mutated squirrel get? What's the best way to come out to your friends, family, and YouTube...


116 - Nico Minoru vs. Zatanna Zatara (feat. Sharon Schneiderman)

Magical puns and jokes about lighter fluid abound in this week's particularly charming episode of Smash Fiction, as Marvel and DC's respective California fashion-goth word witches do battle in a contest to see who can wave their wand, staff, or weird magic murder arm and make their opponent... disappear! Nico Minoru, the somewhat morally ambiguous member of the Runaways, A-Force, and most importantly, the Extraordinary League, has stolen the Book of Shadows to try and learn more about her...


Extraordinary League 31 - The Doom That Came to the Mushroom Kingdom

The Mushroom Kingdom arc comes to a dramatic conclusion as the heroes finally confront the villain responsible for all the destruction and chaos they've faced since stepping foot into this world. But robots and power armor are far from the only threats that the League will have to contend with in their final struggle here, and one of them will have to decide how far they're willing to go to make sure they win. Stitch waxes poetic; Vivian reaches out to an old friend; Nico puts her studies...


3rd Anniversary Special

Well, once again, the Anniversary special is being released a day late, so it's pretty clear that the Smash Fiction Podcast is STILL not getting any better (if anything, based on the matches that have made up the majority of our third year, it's just getting...weird). And yet, here you all are, continuing to listen to this dumb show of ours. We can't thank you enough for that. Really. As a token of our appreciation, please enjoy an hour of Miles, Claire, Kit, Liz, MeganBob, and Dan...


115 - Maui vs. Hercules (feat. Kris Newton)

When the Polynesian trickster god Maui steals the golden apples of the Hesperides and the mighty Olympian demigod known as Hercules is sent to get them back, there's only one way to figure out who would win in a fight. And when you're doing a Smash Fiction match between Disney characters, there's only one guest host to call in: Kris Newton of Gameable and MegaDumbCast! Unfortunately, Kris' attempts at thinking are immediately lost in a sea of yelling, as arguments over animated films about...


Ship Wrecked 2 - Heelies, Hockey, and Heavy Rain

Ship Wrecked is back for a second date, and if you thought dinner was fun, wait till you hear about romantic thrift store shopping! The latest edition of Smash Metafiction's spectacular speed dating game features different characters, new locations, and of course, more wrinkles, as we attempt to find a fictional couple deserving of the title of OTP! Is there a chance these ships are seaworthy, or is the love between, say, 1000-year-old supernatural monsters and shape-changing teenage alien...


114 - Tifa Lockhart vs. Terra Branford vs. Lightning

It’s rare to get a do-over when your world is destroyed, but the alternate-dimension bending and timeline restoration powers of the Chrono Cross promise just that. Serge is ready to pass on his timeline white-out device and three Final Fantasy heroines with post-apocalyptic homes will do whatever it takes to get their hands on it. Terra Branford of Final Fantasy VI, Tifa Lockhart of Final Fantasy VII, and Lightning of Final Fantasy XIII fight it out in the Temporal Vortex using all the magic...


Surprise Party 3 - A Group of Remarkable People

There was an idea (Smash Fiction listeners know this) called the Surprise Party Initiative. The idea was to bring together a group of remarkably nerdy idiots who could take the casts of popular stories and replace them with fictional characters from other stories, then compete with each other to see whose party would be the best one at completing the original story. It's a pretty stupid notion, but what the hell, we've done it twice before, might as well do it again! As you may have...


Extraordinary League 30 - Motor Psyche

The real villain behind the chaos in the Mushroom Kingdom has been revealed and the League have their sights set on his fortress. With no other path before them, the heroes are forced to gather allies, resources... and some sweet wheels. Nico tries to start a book club; Stitch does hard time; Vivian should maybe consider wearing a bell; Luna makes some ill-advised promises; and Dante says goodbye.


113 - Toy Story vs. Small Soldiers (feat. Sam Gasch)

When Chip Hazard and the Commando Elite activate their AI circuits and enter the magical nightmare world of Toy Story, it quickly becomes clear that Andy's house isn't big enough for both sets of dolls action figures. With the family away on vacation, Woody, Buzz Lightyear, and the rest of Andy's toys are forced to defend themselves against the assault of the besieging Small Soldiers. Will their strategy, physical prowess, and tendency toward accepting the inevitability of death and despair...


Collaboratory 3 - Shadow of the Labyrinth

Join us in the lab this week as, once again, Claire guides three Smash Fiction hosts through the collaborative storytelling game called Collaboratory! This time around, we put together a most unusual heist crew consisting of characters from comics, video games, and Shakespeare, and send them into a dungeon in search of treasure and glory. Can our heroes survive monsters, death traps, and sudden but inevitable betrayal? Will any of our characters find love in this hopeless place? And just...


112 - Darth Vader vs. Mewtwo (feat. Neal Butler)

Amidst the increasingly chaotic backdrop of the multiversal Astro-Kerfuffle, two unthinkably powerful entities become aware of each other... and recognize each other as threats. The genetically-engineered psychic Pokémon powerhouse called Mewtwo makes his way to Darth Vader, Dark Lord of the Sith, and neither is going to leave until the other lies broken and defeated. Can Vader pull out a win despite the fact that he can neither fly nor control the weather? Can Mewtwo survive Vader's...


Extraordinary League 29 - Koopa D'état

The League has fought their way through armies of Koopas and robots, but they've finally reached Mushroom Castle. Their fight isn't done yet, though, as the King of the Koopas himself quickly makes his presence known... and he's very unhappy with our heroes. Can the League survive this encounter as their fight with Bowser quickly escalates to earth-shaking levels? Dante decides to expand his culinary tastes; Stitch goes full John Wick; Vivian gets her flirt on; Nico creates a monster; and...


111 - Roland Deschain vs. Vash The Stampede (feat. Matias Tautimez and Rafael Medina)

Hile, listeners! Look closely, I beg. See a pair of legendary gunfighters, each among the most formidable to ever draw iron. In another life, perhaps, these two may have met under more amiable circumstances. Perhaps they have even become friends. But the world has moved on, and ka has decreed that their paths must cross in conflict. For one of these men is Roland Deschain of Gilead-that-was, the last gunslinger, he who seeks the Dark Tower and the room that sits at the top. The other is Vash...


Ship Wrecked 1 - Bowling, Brushstrokes, and Beans

Smash Metafiction proudly debuts its newest game: the speed dating reality show called Ship Wrecked! Claire brings in a boatload of puns as host, while Dan, Kit, Liz, and Meganbob take on the roles of different popular fictional characters. They'll take turns pairing off and getting to know each other in various romantic situations, with an unexpected element introducing delicious chaos partway through each date. At the end, the characters will choose who they most want to continue dating,...


110 - Crowley vs. Crowley (feat. Brad Bultman)

God only knows why Ned Flanders has the most sought-after soul this side of Springfield, but Hell aims to find out why. Not one but two Crowleys, both demonic masters of temptation, have been sent to make Flanders a deal, but a man can only really sell his soul once. Will Supernatural's Crowley meet Ned at a crossroads and make him a deal no double-widower could refuse? Or will Good Omen's Crowley masterfully orchestrate all of Springfield's worst citizens into the perfect corrupting force...
