Metal Man was
originally a normal citizen of an anonymous world, on an
anonymous planet. He tends to keep to himself, so we may never know
much about it. However, people who know him closely have heard
fragments, and fragments that seem to fit together at that. So we have
constructed a sort of story from those fragments.
First, it is obvious Metal Man
is a cyborg. He was once fully human,
evidenced by extensive scarring on the attachment points to the
cybernetics. Although his armor limits the appearance of this, he still
seems to get phantom pains in his missing limbs. Why is this important?
Well, as the first fragment (retreived from an obscure file VGW Man happened to leave out one day) happens to mention how he got this way.
He was a normal man on this world, which was apparently high tech. He
had a large mouth then, and was arrogant. Yet he was just a plain old
civillian. There was a military on this world, but Metal Man hadn't
gotten into it. He had back issues, and he was rather weak despite
being more than tall enough to play basketball (6'4"). As he ranted to
one fateful night, he apparently tried to change this.
It just so happened the normal sort of civil disturbance you'd find in
any world occurred one day. The issue was never mentioned, but Metal Man leapt into it headlong.
Fighting police officers, he managed to
actually injure some but mostly he got the tar beaten out of him. He
was exceedingly lucky and managed to limp away, never to be identified
or arrested, for his actions. Ever since then, he began working on his
fighting technique--some say it was just idle playing around with many
styles he researched, others claim he might have been trained by
somebody with actual knowledge, but either way...
As the fragment goes, he got in a bad place at a bad time, and
encountered a group of toughs. He fancied himself to be just as good as
them at fighting, so when they stuck guns in his face he started
attacking them. His insane luck came in again, and apparently he
managed to, once again, injure them, though it was inadvertent. They
left when they realized he didn't have anything of value on him; he, on
the other hand, had a number of characteristic bullet holes in his
Hence the first, purely prosthetic, limbs were acquired.
Some time passed since then. He was said to only be 20-something back
then. We continue the story after a new invention was made:
teleporation. It was great, except it had a flaw: You couldn't travel
too far without winding up in the wrong place. Just before the old
world of Nintendus imploded on itself, a file he had written detailing
what really happened managed to slip loose, and it
just so happens we have it here, verbatim.
"I was telling the others the amazing lies about how I had fought my
rival to the death and I was the last one of my race, when I remembered
the real reason I was there, talking to them. I had just been a misfit,
but after an unfortunate incident I began to find real jobs and worked
my way up into a research corporation. One of the first to get
I found them quite exciting, stretching what they could send to the
limits, and experimenting on inanimate objects. One day, however, I
pressed it too far, and the field engulfed me. All of a sudden I was in
some other world--and atop a pile of objects I thought I had simply
sent to the wrong place.
This world was rather plain, and surreal. It was a false reality, I
knew it; the doctors who made the teleporter warned me of how I could
wind up somewhere that shouldn't exist with it. Sure enough, strange
people with super powers appeared in this world, ones who I'd known
from video games.
And they beat the crud out of me.
The note ended there; it was a simple rant. But as followed up by some
various computer files gleaned from the realm he went to, we know that
it was some ultra-dimensional world called the 'Battlefield', and that
Metal Man had soon
become corrupted by its unnatural taint. He gained
powers no real person could, and his mind twisted 90 degrees out of
phase. Yet he didn't master this, instead throwing things around at
That would change when he learned how to manifest the very
teleportation powers he had accidentally sent himself there with the
Here the documentation gets vague. Metal
Man refuses to say much, but
one thing led to another and suddenly he was in a world right next to
the SSS, serving VGW Man
in his quest to protect a paralell universe.
It being Termina to the Hyrule that is SSS, he naturally was related to
certain people in SSS in a tangential way. He was wacky, he was crazy,
and he had a tendency to make stories all about himself. Unlike most
SSS people, though, his stories didn't come true--even though the world
of SSQ warped to his very demands (Unfortunately, we don't have any
files explaining how that happened), he couldn't make it true, and it
eventually turned against him and even itself to prevent this.
He eventually discovered the SSS as a parallel dimension, which VGW Man
told him about. However, VGW Man
told him also of his feud. Pat
warned him of the past conflicts there, but Metal
Man came, expecting
to be greeted as a hero for being VGW's
'heir' (apparently this was
linked to how he was able to warp the world of SSQ). The historical SSS
files show that he instead appeared out of the blue and his mouth was
put to work doing matches and keeping things running rather than the
job he had come for: to tell everyone what to do in the name of VGW Man.
While this strange, cybernetic man was stoic, he was also impatient. He
continually left and came back, until his world of choice vanished.
Then he, too, vanished.
More years passed, and eventually he returned, speaking a different
story. This brings us to the last part of our short story.
The world he once ruled was in actuality a sort of book, which he had
been writing in. He wrote too many things into it, and it
malfunctioned. So he fled back to the battlefield-world while he
rebuilt it. There he finally learned how to gain respect; and indeed,
despite the fact that he would tell no-one there (or even us, here) of
his true past, he revealed his true self.
He was once a civillian, but rough times had injured his body. He
became cybernetic, as said before... but what he hadn't said was that
he had been simply a dimensional tourist!
Yes. All the million stickers on his luggage were real.
He had everything on but a rude Hawaiian shirt when he recently
returned to SSS, noting that 'Of all the places, he had visited, it had
the nicest water fountains.'
So now, today, he can be seen orchestrating matches like any other SP,
although most sane people stay clear--his office is filled with
practical joke traps and on any given day he is prone to dancing and
speaking about his battles with evil clowns. Indeed, he still tells
Though if you mention his true past, the twinkle in his eye seems to
hint at the truth... (Written by Metal
Metal Man's Moves:
- Metal Man quickly and mechanically throws a punch by
pulling his arm back and then snapping forward with it. It can be
charged, and has a small range around the first which can potentially
- UP SPECIAL Moves
- Leap of Faith
- Metal Man leaps up into the air and then begins
falling. He can control his descent, and whomever he knocks into
(either mid-flight or landing) is in for some pain.
- SIDE SPECIAL Moves
- Moving both his purely steel fists up and down like
hammers, Metal Man moves at his foe horizontally while beating them
around. Damage is medium, but it is easily spammed and can interrupt
- DOWN SPECIAL Moves
- Psycho Counter
- Normally this move doesn't do much, but if somebody
should move at Metal Man with a physical attack, Metal Man will grab
their arm/sword/whatever and proceed to hit them with it, knocking them
away and onto their backs. Due to his armor, Metal Man can do this with
- FINAL SMASH Moves
- Metal Man takes out a gigantic cannon, on the scale of
Iron Man's Proton Cannon. He then proceeds to fire a homing laser which
will target one person... the following thing that happens is random
summoning of all the items enabled in that match (or if none are
enabled, random purely damaging objects which aren't items) which are
then hurled around as if they were thrown. This is completely random;
it is rumored to have fired all Mr. Saturns once, and another time to
have completely slaughtered somebody with Bob-ombs. Occasionally it
fires Smart-bombs and blows up Metal Man instead!!!
