Ultimate Super Smash Bros. Brawl Riddles Part 94: Leap Riddles

#1PHoToS999Posted 2/29/2012 4:48:38 PM(edited)
Today, we celebrate the extra time in our year every leap year.
How do we celebrate this grand occasion of the rarest of extra days in a year? With more riddles of course.

Welcome to Ultimate SSBB Riddles! Remember that you do not need to ask permission to join; anybody who likes SSBB and riddles can post and guess!

Rules of the Riddler (Credit to USSBBR Veterans):
1. The answer to the riddle has to be found in Brawl.
2. Lines pertaining to your answer can come from other games, though.
3. If you answered correctly, you have 24 hours to post a new riddle. Otherwise, anyone may make the next riddle, which is then considered official.
4. You must have 20 Karma to post a riddle, due to posting restrictions.
5. Rhyming is recommended but not required.
6. If you can't think of a riddle, say so immediately so someone else can take over.
7. If you have the current riddle, you must post within 36 hours of your last post or your riddle will be replaced with a new one (refer to rule 3). Even if the expired riddle is solved within the 36 hours, but not officially announced within the time; the riddle is still expired and its replacement will become the official riddle.
8. If your riddle expires for any reason, you may NOT replace the expired riddle.
9. Every 50 posts, you must put up 2 extra lines, answer a yes/no question from a user, or put up a hint.
10. Make sure your hints, lines, and answers are correct and don't contradict the answer. Even if a hint may be a loophole, exploit it rather than giving incorrect information.
11. If the current riddler is absent, then a temporary riddle may take place.
12. It can be super-obscure; as long as you give good hints (e.g. “I am the top right pixel of someone”). Refer to DallasDingyBird's Guide to Good Riddle Making for more information.
13. The answer CANNOT be exclusively from a Masterpiece.
14. No more than 20 guesses may be made at once. If you post a list of Stickers, Trophies, Stages, Characters, etc. you must wait at least 10 minutes in between each part of the list you post.
15. After 250 posts, the '2 closest guessers' option becomes available. The '5 closest guesses' hint becomes available after 500 posts.
16. The answer CANNOT be exclusively from a hacked version of Brawl.

Don't post yet, Imma wereplant and I be watching you!

The Smash Compendium of Users (bulk written by MANicantdecide, DallasDingyBird, Eggsandbricks and Linksmaster813, edited by all users mentioned)
---
Alakazam_fan (The Leader Guy):
Alakazam is BACK, baby! He's been gone since Part 17, and returned in all his shining glory in 46 after seven months. Although he has made the most riddles statistically, he is by no means the greatest riddler (although he is one of the best. Riddles like his are a Rarity to come by). First to utilize the guess list and closest guesser hint. Came the earliest out of everyone. Don't get Tangled up in a fight with this guy else he'll hit you with a frying pan. Best Riddles: Damage Recoil & F-Airs

gavin1235 (The Simple Guy):
Gavin only posts occasionally, and when he does, his posts are short and to the point. Also been a part of this since Part 1. Doing a "gavin" means posting an incredibly long list of perhaps random guesses. His riddles aren't extremely hard either. Best Riddle: Green Alloy

KainWind (The Modest Guy):
Winner of the Riddler Rumble tournament!!! He's finally able to consistently post with us again, and when he doesn't post, he's always watching *shifty gaze*. He tries to keep things organized at most times. Was the first to use the infamous line "I reside with others, but always alone". GERUDO VALLEY FTW! Best Riddle: Gerudo Valley (song)

DallasDingyBird (The Nice Guy):
Perhaps the most active out of all the users here. So nice! Is almost never rude and gives reason for his mistakes, much like his MLP choice of alter-ego, Fluttershy. He always has a lot of temp. riddles to share. His guesses are very logical and his riddles witty. Doing a 'Dallas' means repeated posting until a 50 post mark or to the end of the topic. Best Riddles: Blast Box and Bridge of Eldin

Adreim_Erruco21(The Friendly Guy):
Used to be Mierda_Ocurre12. He always thinks about the other users and tries to make his posts or riddles fun/funny, and is entertaining to have around. He's been missing for quite some time though D:. Best Riddle: Paratroopa's Wings

Player_0 (The Ambitious Guy):
Resident stalker. He used to be known as MANicantdecide. With the coming of summer, P0/MICD's back! :D And he's brought a gift of some certain four-legged animals we all know and love... well, most of us. Puts a lot of thought and work into all his posts and riddles, perhaps too much (he just loved making lists like this). Much more time than 10 seconds flat, believe me. First to utilize one hint/one yes or no question/2 more lines per 50-post page. Best Riddles: Display naming the music at the start of the match, Stars that characters become after being spit out by Kirby/King Dedede

linksmaster813 (The Interesting Guy):
Came in Part 18 and has been very active since. His posts sometimes have a dramatic flair to them or bring humor to the table. He definitely isn't as good as making riddles as he is at solving them (mass guessing or not), as his riddles are mostly Eggspwnt or last too long to be enjoyable. However, he's had a couple of good ones. Writing an epic fantasy/sci-fi story involving select members of USSBBR. Best Riddles: Dark Link, Cook Kirby’s Hat

eggsandbricks (The Silly Guy):
Winner of the USSBBR tournament!!! Working on a story based on Brawl and USSBBR, although this has taken a backseat. Created and used to update the USSBBR archives. Very active and very odd, but don't be scared of him. Probably most humorous and fun of the users here. He also has frequent spurts of genius, which leads to tricky riddles and the occasional Eggspwn where he solves a riddle in one guess (or early enough). Best Riddles: Replays, How to Play video

CaptainIronic aka TB(The Fun Guy):
After being AWOL for quite some time, he's finally back with us! We all knew and loved him as The_TB before. He has a total of two unexplained absences from USSBBR because of two different accidents....TB sure is unlucky (he was even in a coma!). Was very humorous and motivational to riddles in the past. TBitis is when you make a USSBBR topic but make an error whilst doing so. Obviously, this "disease" started with TB. Best Riddle: Team Match

Falcon_Pawnch75 (The Logical Guy):
FP for short. Was runner-up in the USSBBR Tournament! He came in Part 19, but didn't become active until the 30s. Very logical when it comes to guessing, but, at the same time, FP's very funny. He's also made a few pieces of digital artwork dedicated to USSBBR and is working on a couple of stories involving USSBBR members crossing over with other games. Best Riddle: Mario's Dair

Cindiquil (The Expressive Guy):
Once a lurker to USSBBR but joined in 36, you cannot deny Cyn's quirky presence. He's quite straightforward and direct once you get to know him. He also likes to page get.
zeroexev29 (The Blender Guy): Appeared in part 42 and has since risen through the USSBBR Ranks, with many riddles under his belt. Loves Mega Man, and isn't hard to get along with. A blend of all the personalities of USSBBR. Best Riddle: Spectator Mode
lilman1106 (The Lonely Guy): He's most active at night (because he lives in Australia) when there's no one around, which really irks him. He says he watches all the topics, but never posts due to lack of time. You must be careful, as he is Batman! Best Riddle: Classic Mode Lasers

TheSpasticKing (The Spastic Guy):
He's been around since about 34, and joined because of Link (they know each other in real life), although most like to refer to him by his original name, Rival. Pretty random and hyperactive but actually logical when guessing; hmm, is this a recurring theme for us? Best riddles: -/+ score when KOed
Rainbowkirby749 (The Dedicated Guy): He's so modest that he persistently tried to stop us from making an SCU. Likes to number his points in posts; they are often humorous, and if not, he still comes off as a nice guy. He's also an Aussie, but that doesn't stop him from Dallasing alone, hence his title.

PHoToS999 (The Were-plant):
His riddles are a little more odd not unlike P0's or Ala's. He did come earlier than a lot of other people. He's a cultured Were-plant when the full moon is out, and probably something scarier when it isn't. He is more active than usual, possibly meaning he's turning into a Were-plant more often, But who knows?

Zero_Destroyer (The Giygas Guy):
Is totally insane beyond all comprehension, but it thankfully does not get in the way of his riddle making/solving. Offends some, but is hilarious to others. His activity waxes and wanes. Best Riddle: The can that Lucas kicks in the first Ruined Zoo cutscene.

silversunsspu:
The only known girl in USSBBR. Posts fairly good guesses, though she's yet to solve a riddle. Rivals Rival as the most spontaneous user in USSBBR.

quetip1:
the newest member of the USSBBR joined just after ziggymarley777 and I_liek_mudkipz. He owns a giant Q-tip and is proud of it, he is working on a story that can be found in his sig.

averagejoel:
He’s an active guesser and even solved one of Ala’s riddles. Fire Emblem FTW, eh? (Get it? He’s Canadian!)

I_liek_mudkipz:
Made a few riddles, not the best at them. Yet when he does make a good one, it lasts a good topic! Best Riddle: Pokemon Trainer White(?) alt color

Sword_of_Fleets:
After a long hiatus, he's back and more active than ever! He has a guess list that he always posts for every riddle that never changes. His random quotes and stories distinguish him from everyone else. Also loves FE.

todbot1:
Not seen often, but used to post a couple of times every topic. In the old days he was quite the riddle solver, but never made a riddle. A crowd favorite during Brawl matches. 'Todbotting' is to have the chat open and be signed in, but not actually be there for long periods of time.

King_DDB:
Very mysterious, he's been here for awhile (or so he says) but didn't start posting til recently. He's kept his real identity a secret. He could be...!

DallasDingyBird's/Fluttershy4’s Guide to Good Riddle Making! (with slight additions by Link)

- It's a good idea to make your lines rhyme, it's not essential, but it's a good place to start. If a line that rhymes sounds confusing, you should dump the rhyme so the riddle makes more sense.
- It's okay to make your lines a little obscure, but try not to go too far with it. Alakazam_fan's lines back in the day were good: contrasting, slightly confusing ideas, but pretty specific to the riddle answer.
- Your riddle needs to make sense, don't fill it with meaningless lines that really are just to throw everyone off, no one likes that. There's a difference to alluding to a game that the answer is in and just making up obscure relations, though.
- Also, try to describe what the answer is, not just where to find it and what it does and vice versa. Puns are nice; for example, if the answer was Crazy Hand, the line "I'm quite handy in a battle" would work well.
- It's okay to have an answer that's hard to find, just be sure your lines and hints point to the answer or people may get disappointed after hours and days (and in extreme cases, weeks) of meaningless guessing. If you have an obscure answer, your lines probably should be very specific to start off.
- Recently, most of the riddles' lines are so confusing that you ALWAYS need two or three hints just to narrow down the areas. The first four lines are probably the most important, so make sure they're good. If you know your riddle might be obscure, it's not a bad idea to go with six or eight to begin with.
- Don't try to make the riddle be the longest ever or you'll end up infuriating everyone over how bad your riddle was due to your level of obscurity/poorly made lines thus making for a complete waste of time and no fun for anyone.
- Most of all, have fun creating your riddle!

Current riddle (by Fluttershy4):
Move to the left, move to the right,
Look up, then prepare to take flight,
The kiss of death for if you miss,
Otherwise, a friendly hug made out of pure bliss

1. The answer can be found in gameplay (not menus).


And that's that.
Go on, this day won't last much longer ya know. It's still just a 24 hour day.

Speaking of, I move to vote whether or not nighthawk should be put into the SCU or not. Shall we, or shall we not?

Reposting guesses 'cause I thought it would make sense.

Hi.

Ah, a topic made on the ludicrous leap day.

Leap day =/= 4 1/4 days! It is equal to ABOUT 4 1/4 days! Get it right people.

Guesses: Wyverns
Q
Bob-Omb
Porky
THE Fire Emblem
Vespene Gas
Minerals
RROD
Ummm, Dragoon

Oh, and for that vote, I say he must wait, little is know 'bout him and we need smething for his description. Plus, other people had to wait.
