How Magmortar joined the Tourney
Magmortar went undefeated through the entire Tournament and was even victorious against Ogre. Swelling with pride, he returned home. However, Magmotar's happy ending was short-lived. Unknown to Magmortar, Ogre morphed into his second form - True Ogre - and the tournament continued after his departure. Although Magmortar asserted that he was the true champion of the Tournament , few believed him, and even those that did eventually grew tired of his attitude. Friends and admirers slowly disappeared, and his partner also dissappears. One day, Magmortar came across a newspaper flyer announcing the Smash Bros. Tourney. Burning with the desire to win this Tourney, he decides to give it his all once again to prove that he is the one true champion, once and for all. He had to win!
