ENTER BANJO & KAZOOIE
“Is that really all you have?” Marth asked, though the fact that he was leaning heavily on his sword somewhat detracted from the snobby air in his voice. It had been a long Brawl between him and the other swordsman, and he was beginning to feeling the effects of it.
Ike couldn’t help but smirk, being able to read Marth well after the many times they fought. “Why don’t you see for yourself?” he couldn’t help but say as he straightened with a slight wince, bringing his sword up to rest on his shoulders. Before the other man could however, the stage suddenly got very very still.
The environment froze, and the background music stopped playing. There was a bright flash of light as a boom voice declared that a challenger was approaching. When the air cleared, there was a brown bear wearing yellow shorts and a blue backpack with a red bird sticking out of it standing before Ike and Marth, who both stared at it.
“Banjo Kazooie!” The bird trilled as the bear pulled a banjo seemingly from nowhere and launched into a song, the bird joining in with a horn. They finished and looked expectantly to the two. Marth scoffed.
“This is ridiculous.” He declared, turning on his heel and leaving the stage. He may fight robots, and small electrical mice, but something about fighting a banjo playing bear was just too much. Besides, fighting a bear was just stupid, not matter if they were vaguely humanoid or not. It was a case of man vs. nature, and more often than not, nature won.
Ike was left alone with the new arrivals, who were still staring at him. From nowhere, a mole popped out of the ground and engaged the animals in a conversation. Ike didn’t understand a word of it, but from the squawking, it seemed like the bird and the mole were arguing.
It disappeared back into the ground, and the bear suddenly threw itself at Ike, flailing wildly with his claws. Ike skittered back, but realized he could just stop the bear by placing a hand on his head and holding him back. Or at least that worked until the bird pecked his fingers.
“Ow! Hey!” He frowned and ducked to avoid the bear who shot forward, somehow using the birds beak on his arm to do damage. It continued like this for some time, the duo attacking Ike as he familiarized himself with their movements and the best responses to them. He managed to land a solid amount blows while keeping the injuries he sustained to a minimum. Finally, Ike managed to solidly hit the bear with his sword, and watched with satisfaction as it flew off the platform.
However, the bird spread its wings, and flew the bear back onto the platform in a graceful, looping arch. Grumbling about cheap saving moves like Snake and his helicopter, Ike resigned himself to the fact that this might take a while.
As soon as Banjo and Koozie were defeated, becoming proper members of the Brawl’s roster, several new items began appearing in battles. The oddest were skull shaped tokens which, when an unknown but constantly varying number were collected, a colourful shaman character was summoned who then transformed the person into a seemingly random form. Many of the fighters soon began to dread these changes (Marth most of all when one day, much to his horror, he was turned into a walrus).
Most of these complaints died down when R.O.B. got turned into a clothes washer and was stuck like that for a week. After all, the old one was temperamental and prone to flooding the laundry room when it got fed up with getting grass stains out of Link’s tights for the fifth time that week.
Note: Uh, sorry for any mistakes. It's late and it's been years since I've played Banjo Kazooie. But! I love the game and I hope this worked well enough for what you wanted.

8D Thanks, I'm glad you liked it!
*grins* That's why I use Kirby, though if you're skilled at failing, you still manage to constantly fall off the side.

Another cheap move is Mr. Game & Watch's parachute thing. I mean, it goes reeeeeeeally high.
Anyways, it has been so long since I saw anything BK related. That was relly nostalgic <3
