The Subspace Emissary
Tabuu was the god of Subspace. He wanted to cut the multiverse into
pieces and drag it into his world, because Tabuu himself cannot leave
Subspace. He had been trapped here by valiant unknown heroes during the
near-collapse of the multiverse known as the Great Crash. That’s why he
prepared an army and a leader for the
offensive into the other world.
First, he took control of the Island of
the Ancients. The Ancient Minister wanted to avoid losing his people to
Tabuu, so he reluctantly agreed to be the main front of the Subspace
Army, and begins development work on the Subspace Bombs and Dark
Cannons. Tabuu took notice of the peculiar qualities of Mr. Game
& Watch’s body mass. Through the Ancient Minister,
he took advantage of these particularities by using the blood of Mr. Game
& Watch to create a nearly infinite number of
Bugs, which he then used to create more soldiers for the Subspace Army.
Tabuu also had his eye on Meta Knight’s
ship, the Halberd, as a means
of transportation for the Subspace Army. Using the Subspace Army, he
launched a violent attack on Meta
Knight and took the ship for his own.
During the attack, King Dedede
Knight, unknowingly making
it impossible for Meta Knight
to repel the Subspace Army’s attack.
Tabuu studied Master Hand and the fighters, and this knowledge led him
to use Master Hand for his plans. Chains of light bended Master Hand to
the will of Tabuu, who used Master Hand to enlist the likes of
and Wario. He gave each
of these minions a Dark
Cannon and told them to hunt down any talented fighters that might
stand in the way of the Subspace Army. Ganondorf
pretended to swear
allegiance to Master Hand, all the while planning to usurp power from
within. Bowser was
relatively loyal to Master Hand, but he did not care
for Ganondorf's orders. Wario
cared very little for the actual
objective he was given and wanted to continue just doing whatever he
likes. And of course, none of them knew about Tabuu.
learned of Tabuu’s true nature and the power of his Off Waves during
the taking of the Halberd. King Dedede
began to worry what will happen
if everyone wer turned into trophies. The multiverse as we know it
Tabuu’s hand. So King Dedede
developed a special brooch. The brooches were set
to work on a timer; when the timer runs down, the brooch will restore a
fighter from his or her trophy form back to the original form. All you
need to do is set the brooch on a hero that had been turned into a
trophy and leave it there. When King
Dedede learned that Bowser
and Wario had joined
the Subspace Army and are turning fighters into a
collection of trophies, he decided to start his own collection. He
hid the fighter trophies he collects in his castle, thinking the
brooches will bring them back eventually if something goes wrong, but
he ended up using the brooch he had made for himself on Zelda, and
intended to make another one for himself later.
of the R.O.B.s and forced them to blow up the Island of the Ancients so
that he could tear a hole in space large enough to fit a Subspace
through. Once the mass production of Subspace Gunships yielded a
certain number of units, it would then be possible to launch all of
them through the hole at once. Once the Gunships were in the World of Smashtopia,
there would be no way to stop them from dragging all the remaining
pieces of the World of Smashtopia into theirs. Once that happened, there would be no
more need for the Island of the Ancients or the Subspace Bombs. The
gunship was meant to be Tabuu’s trump card, but the valiant attack by
heroes neutralizes the threat.
The heroes then faced Tabuu, who turned
all of them into trophies using his Off Waves. Tabuu then began to
reconstruct some of the
pieces he tore out of the World of Smashtopia into a nightmarish maze.
because of King Dedede's
broochs, Luigi, Ness, and Karby
and used the brooches to revive the other fighters. The heroes ran
through the maze, and fought their way to Tabuu. Before he could use
his Off Waves again, Sonic the Hedgehog
broke Tabuu's wings and weakened him to
the point where the fighters could trap Tabuu forever as a trophy himself.
