How Charade joined the Tourney

Charade is the form of a man who is weary from war-torn lands and dreaming of adventure. He finds the legends of SoulEdge, and begins to find its fragments. He is eventually murdered by bandits who had heard a rumor circulating in the cities of a man overly-protective of his possessions. Still grasping the fragments, his corpse is thrown into a river. The blood from the hands forms around the fragments due to the man's tenacity to protect his precious fragments. This being seeks out to find more shards, so it can devour them and become whole. He eventually becomes part of the Soul Edge. Charade is able to scan minds of warriors it confronts, and then creates weapons out of its body to accommodate the fighting style it imitates. When the SoulEmbrace was formed, Charade's power appeared to have weakened in response to SoulEdge's dormant state.

Imitative Powers

Charade is capable of imitating every character in the Super Smash Bros. Tourney series, but he will only imitate characters who are currently available for play at the moment; for instance, he can imitate Lu Bu from the start of the game, but he cannot imitate Magolor until the player unlocks him. In Tourney 2, this is the same, but unlockable characters in Tourney 2 have to be unlocked before they can be imitated by Charade; for instance, he can imitate Steve Harris at the beginning of the game, but he cannot imitate Amy Rose until she is unlocked. The only character in Tourney 1 that he cannot imitate is Kirby, and the only two characters in Tourney 2 that he cannot imitate are Kirby and Irate Gamer.

  2. Charade does two punches then a long punch and poses saying "Seems you choose your allies poorly?" while impersonating Kazuya's voice.
  3. Charade has his hands on his hips while saying "Don't let hatred turn you into a monster!" while impersonating Xiaoyu's voice.

Trivia

  • Charade is capable of imitating everyone in the game except for Kirby. He also has a demonic voice that sounds like every character in the game. In Tourney 2, he gains the power to imitate every character added to the sequel as well as all Create a Character styles, but he cannot copy Kirby or Irate Gamer. In both games, Charade cannot imitate characters that imitate other characters, such as Red Queen or Koryu.
  • Using Charade with the fighting style of an anime/manga character is the only way to get Jin Kazama to not say "What are you after?" when a battle begins.
  • With fourteen quotes said on the Character Select Screen, Charade has the most quotes used on the Character Select Screen.
  • When Charade imitates Ariel, he has Kazuya Mishima's voice but is restricted to her mermaid form. This is because her human form can imitate other characters like Charade himself. Though this may be true, he goes back to his Soul Calibur II appearance after any match.
  • There are many bony formations of Charade during Super Smash Bros. Tourney and its sequel.
    • If Charade imitates a majority of the characters (such as Alisa), he will use his appearance from his premiere video game, Soul Calibur II.
    • If Charade imitates a two-in-one character (such as Kat & Ana), there will be two Charades rather than one.
    • If Charade imitates a three-in-one character (such as the Clockwork Soldiers), there will be three Charades rather than one.
    • If Charade imitates a character with four legs and no arms (such as Amaterasu), he will become a quadruped.
    • If Charade imitates a short character with no legs but has feet (such as King Dedede), he will lose his bony legs but keep his bony feet.
    • If Charade imitates anyone with a long tail (such as Roger Jr.), he will gain a long bony tail.
    • If Charade imitates a giant character (such as Gold Lightan), he will become three times larger than anyone else and will gain an extra set of arms.
    • If Charade imitates merfolk (such as Ariel), his legs will become a merperson's fin.
    • If Charade imitates a character with more than one set of arms (such as Hatchan), he will gain an extra set of arms.
    • If Charade imitates a character with wings (such as Devil Kazuya), he will receive bony wings.
    • If Charade imitates a Stand user (such as Jotaro), there will be a rainbow-colored eyeball with him.
  • Charade is the only imitation fighter who gives a hint on who he will be imitating when being selected, and the hint is what he says on the Character Select Screen; for example, if he is going to imitate a Barney & Friends universe character or a Team Umizoomi universe character, he will say "An ambush?? Cute.".
  • Link, the hero of Hyrule, is Charade's rival.
