Smash Bros Lawl- Main Theme (The Best Hercules Movie Ever) / Smash Bros Lawl- Best Hydra Battle

Special Moves

Standard B- Best Bow

Best Herucles takes out a bow and prepares to fire it. When nothing is pressed, Hercules will prepare. and eventually fire his arrow. It travels very slowly and at a very odd arc. If the bow is held for 3 seconds however, Best Hercules will fall over, causing 5% damage to himself.

Move Origin

When confronting a boar, Hercules tries to subdue it by shooting an arrow at it. This takes him a few seconds before firing, as the arrow flies around in a bizarre arc.

Side B-Recycle Chariot

A ground-only move, Hercules hops in a chariot where he goes the right way and then rams into the opponent while shifting directions. Then he celebrates for two seconds. Doing this move near ledges causes his chariot to fall off, and it can't be controlled until Hercules crashes. The crash from the fall does 5% to himself.

Move Origin

During the beginning games, Hercules is riding a chariot as he repeatedly stops and cheers to the audience in an animation that's recycled multiple times.

Up B-Giant Jump

Hercules takes a great leap, then celebrates for two seconds. While celebrating, he is immobile and helpless.

Move Origin

During the beginning, while competing in the games, Hercules leaps over another contestant in the long jump and takes a few seconds to celebrate his leap.

Down B-Think!

The first part is probably put best in dialogue:

Best Hercules: I... really don't have the time right now...

BH's Gay Friend: (as he appears in a random spot on the ground ) No... think, Hercules!

Then Hercules takes out his mirror, which reflects projectiles with thrice the power and speed. This can be undone safely by pushing any button, but after that it takes 5 seconds to do it again. The move can be cancelled by hitting Hercules (no knockback and half damage to Hercules before he takes out his mirror), or by smashing his gay friend after Hercules says the above line. His gay friend won't appear until 30 seconds have passed, and Hercules's defense is lost during that time.

Move Origin

During the Hydra battle, Hercules's Gay Friend tries telling Hercules to use his mirror to deflect the Hydra's laser beams. Hercules misconstrues this as using the mirror to look at himself. When told to think, he takes it out and deflects one of the Hydra's lasers.

Final Smash- Ok Charge!

Hercules rides a boar, which won't stop until it hits something, such as a wall or another opponent. Should the boar hit an opponent, it will do 20%-120% to him/her, depending on how far the boar was.

Move Origin

Best Hercules attempts to ride a boar into a rock in a similar fashion above, but he just bounces off it.

  • Side Taunt- Hercules celebrates.
  • Up Taunt- "You don't mind, do you?"

Character Description

There would be a description here, but it... really doesn't have the time right now. This character is an odd version of Hercules from a "so bad, it's good" animated Hercules film. (All parts are found here.)

Snake: Ugh! Think Otacon!

Otacon: Well, um...

Snake: What are you, some kind of retard?

Otacon: ...No teasing!

(Otacon starts crying while depressing music in the background plays.)

Snake: ...are you crying? You're one good looking caller.

Otacon: ...I am?

Snake: Yes.

Otacon: Well, I do read... Thank you Snake, I feel better now!
