Tropedia

  • Before making a single edit, Tropedia EXPECTS our site policy and manual of style to be followed. Failure to do so may result in deletion of contributions and blocks of users who refuse to learn to do so. Our policies can be reviewed here.
  • All images MUST now have proper attribution, those who neglect to assign at least the "fair use" licensing to an image may have it deleted. All new pages should use the preloadable templates feature on the edit page to add the appropriate basic page markup. Pages that don't do this will be subject to deletion, with or without explanation.
  • All new trope pages will be made with the "Trope Workshop" found on the "Troper Tools" menu and worked on until they have at least three examples. The Trope workshop specific templates can then be removed and it will be regarded as a regular trope page after being moved to the Main namespace. THIS SHOULD BE WORKING NOW, REPORT ANY ISSUES TO Janna2000, SelfCloak or RRabbit42. DON'T MAKE PAGES MANUALLY UNLESS A TEMPLATE IS BROKEN, AND REPORT IT THAT IS THE CASE. PAGES WILL BE DELETED OTHERWISE IF THEY ARE MISSING BASIC MARKUP.

Brawl in the Family is a gag-based Web Comics starring Kirby, and featuring various video game characters, mainly those that have appeared in the Super Smash Bros. series, but most of the plots and running jokes are based on Kirby and King Dedede. It is written and drawn by Matthew Taranto, AKA TriforceBun from the Phoenix Wright Musical Project.

The comic uses a fairly simplistic art style most of the time, originating from bored-in-class sketches and doodles. There is more complex art on occasion, including homages and tributes to the styles of other artists.

It's also very funny and very cute. (That is, when it's not super disturbing.) If you are a Nintendo fan, this is a web-comic you must read.

Due to Matt's Crohn's disease acting up, the series went through a Series Hiatus for over a month and a half. However, on April 10,[when?] it was announced that the series will be regularly updated again now that he's been taking medicine.

Tropes used in Brawl in the Family include:

  1. Matt wants the comic to be family friendly
  2. For those who didn't get it, an early episode of The Simpsons did it when Homer was driving back home from a second job at the Kwik-e-Mart because he had to afford a pony for Lisa.
