Ladies and gentleman, my name is Kristen. Rosario. And I am your host for the CAVE OF TRIALS! Now before we begin the second part of Round Two of the SMASH ULTIMATE FANTASMIC HOLIDAY TOURNAMENT, let’s take a look at the bracket to see who else made it to Round Three!


There were definitely some close bouts more than what I expected in the first half to Round Two. However, with the first part of the second round out of the way, it’s time to move on to the second half of Round Two!

First up, it’s the third new combatant entering the fray in Round Two taking on a survivor of the Round One as Kratos from God of War series takes on the Garo Master! For those who don’t know, Kratos is a Spartan warrior who’s had eight games worth of ripping two different mythologies asunder. Plus he has a kid now, but that hasn’t stopped him from being a mighty combatant. Heck, even the kid is more useful than you may think.

Who wins this bout?!

Next up the mysterious Pokémon entity known as Missing No., is heading up against what many consider to be a top contender in this tournament as their competitor is Midna. It’s hard to believe that this could easily become a one-way match.

Who gets out this match still standing?!

Our third match in second half of Round Two pits Cayde-6 up against Error. This is what Savannah Gault, Cayde-6’s Manager, had to say about her very expressive client:

“Cayde-6 is a legend… a real Bad Ass. He’s funny, witty, an all around great guy. He’s got your back, and when needed, he takes things into his own hands. Yeah he can be kinda secretive, and he doesn’t always follow orders. And okay he can be a bit sarcastic at the worst times. But he’s got a big heart. He’s a real teddy bear. What’s not to love about him? Cayde-6 has a ton of potential, and I want everyone to see that.”

Who wins this fight?!

The final match for Round Two is a bit of a doozy as Arbiter faces off against the Tri Force Heroes! This is the last new competitor entering the second round and this one seems a bit unfair. However, after their seeing how in-sync there fighting prowess is, I decided to give them their shot.

This is what Kat Vadam, Arbiter’s Manager, has to say about this because this is basically a 3-on-1 handicap match:

“The Arbiter sends honorable regards to Simon and his client, Neku, for a battle well fought. But, in the end, the House of Vadam stands triumphant, and prepared for the next match. Three on one? Very well. These Tri Force Heroes better be ready. For Sanghelios!”

However the Tri Force Heroes’ Manager, Rod Lloyd, had this to say:

“Ladies and gentlemen, my name is Rod Lloyd. And I am the advocate for the fearsome threesome, the troubling trio, the tenacious triple: The Tri Force Heroes. My clients have stepped into the ring with the Arbiter, a worthy fighter indeed, but we all know that no competitor, big or small, Zelda character or otherwise, stands a chance against the dapper stars of the 3DS’ premier Zelda title. Miss Vadam may talk about the numbers game, about how her hero doesn’t stand a chance against a cohesive team of three Links. And she’s right. The Arbiter doesn’t stand a chance against them. No one does. But that does not, in any way, reveal some sort of unfair advantage. My clients simply understand the importance of teamwork, cooperation, brotherhood. The Aribter, a heretic cast out of his own nation, knows nothing of these principles. He stands alone. And because of that, my Tri Force Heroes will lift him high above their heads and drive him back into the mat. Arbiter, welcome to Totem City.”

Who is the final combatant going to Round Three?!
