Filia soon found herself transported to what looks like a coliseum with a luscious grassy field and surrounded by marble structures and eggshell white stone columns. On the top of one side there is a gold circular symbol with a cross on it with the center starting slightly on the bottom left. There are even people there roaming around, some looked medieval and carried around swords, and some looked more futuristic, armed with strange looking firearms and wearing strange gear. There were even strange creatures roaming about the area which Filia had never seen before. Even if her memory was restored she would have never expected these kinds of beings to be in existence. Filia also seen a gorilla with a bow tie dancing around with a dog that stood on it's hind legs with a duck perched on it's shoulders. She also sees two young boys, one conjuring up some sort of element while the other boy stared in appeal. She began to wonder who these people and these creatures were and what kinda place this was.
"Welcome miss Filia, to the world of smash." Master Hand exclaimed. "Here is where warriors from different parts of the universe come to test their strength and skills against one another in a grand tournament to prove, which among them, is worthy of being the ultimate fighting champion."
"Mario!" A young woman cried out.
Approaching Filia, Mario and Master Hand was a young princess in a pink dress, a short round being with red feet and a man who looked similar to Mario but his hat and shirt were green and the hat had a green "L" on it. He appeared to be more taller and slimmer.
"I'm so glad you are back. How did everything go?" The princess said.
"Everything went fine" Mario replied.
"Splendid! I hope you had fun. And who might this young lady be?" The princess asked Mario gleefully as she now gazed her eyes on the schoolgirl.
"Nice to meet you mam, my name is Filia." Filia answered the woman in a upmost polite manner as she took a short bow.
"A pleasure to meet you miss Filia, allow me to introduce myself. I am Princess Peach, ruler of the Mushroom Kingdom. This man here is Luigi, Mario's younger brother, and this cute little puffball here is Kirby." Peach explained to Filia. Though still thinking about what Kirby was, Filia felt amused as she bent down to get a better look at Kirby.
"Poyo poyo." Kirby said cheerfully.
"Aaawwwwwwww he's soooooo adorable!" Shouted Filia as she rubbed her hand on Kirby's cheek, making him feel very comfortable around her.
"Poyo poyo!" Kirby said again, this time with more blissfulness.
Samson was a little curious looking at him, wondering exactly WHAT he is.
"The hell is he supposed to be? A walking wad of gum or something?" Samson asked. After seeing the razor sharp teeth in Filia's hair speak, Luigi sprung back in fear as he let out a loud shriek. Mario tried to reassure his not-so-little brother that Samson was not a threat.
"Oh ho ho, relax weegee, he's not causing any trouble." Mario casually explained to Luigi. "Sorry about that Filia, he gets like that around, new faces haha."
"It's okay, I probably should have introduced him to begin with. This is my friend Samson, it may not look it but he means well" Filia told them. Samson didn't say anything but let out a annoyed grunt.
"So what brings you here anyway?" Luigi asked her while trying to hide his terrified tone, putting Filia back in focus as she turned back to Master Hand.
"Oh yeah, why did you bring me here?" She asked.
Returning to exclaim his proposition to the pair, Master Hand explained, "As I said, I gather fighters here to compete in the smash tournament. And judging how you held your own against Mario, I can tell that you and your parasite make a formidable team. If you decided to compete in the tournament and win, I will aid you in finding the Skullgirl."
Though she possesses much skill in combat, Filia is not the type to get into a brawl if she doesn't have to. Still, this tournament sounds like a sure thing to find the Skullgirl. She thought about it for a moment, then gave her reply. "Well, okay sure. Sounds good to me."
"You sure about this kid?" Samson asked.
"I have to get my memory back Samson. Besides, you like fighting don't you?" She asked the skeptical parasite.
"Hell yeah, but we don't know who these guys, gals, or things are, what they're capable of." He told her with concern.
"We'll be fine, this is just a tournament."
"Well, alright then, I got your back. Just, be careful. I ain't letting these scumbags mess you up" he told her.
"Aww, you're so sweet." Filia replied. She grabbed a lock of her hair and gave it a firm hug, causing the parasite to blush. Peach and Kirby let out a gentle "aww" as they found this moment quite precious.
"Well then, welcome aboard Filia." Master Hand continued. "With all the preparations I must make and the newcomers I'm still searching for, the tournament should begin in three days"
"Okay then. And um, Mr. Master Hand, sir?" Filia began to ask. "Is there a way you can send me back to New Meridian?"
"Of course, right this way." He told her, then he had Filia following him to a nearby area to send her back.
"Hmm, I wonder what she meant by getting her memory back." The princess said.
"Same." Mario told her. "And I wonder who this "Skullgirl" person is"
Master Hand takes Filia to a area where there is a huge screen displaying pictures of different places she has never seen before. He then takes out a small, strange looking white pistol that was holstered under the screen and hands it to her along with a necklace with a coin attached to it that had the smash symbol on it.
"You can tap the badge on this necklace to teleport here at anytime." He instructed to the young girl. "Right now it's on the bottom right. Just point at the image and shoot."
Filia pointed the pistol at the image, which then labeled itself as "streets of New Meridian" and pulled the trigger. A gold light surrounded her and she was soon teleported back while the pistol returned to the holster.
When she returned, the streets were now crawling with soldiers wearing strange masks and patrolling the area.
"Hey." One soldier said to another.
"You ever wonder why we're here?"
"Life's full of mysteries isn't it? Is there someone just watching us? Is there really a God, just planning something for us? Ya know? I don't know man, but it keeps me up at night."
".....what? Dude, I was just asking why Parasoul has us looking for the schoolgirl."
"Oh, um, yeah. I think her name is Filia, right? I think it's cause Filia-"
"What's all that stuff about God?"
".....you wanna talk about it?"
"No, no I'm good."
One soldier spots Filia and cries out, "Commander Parasoul, I located the target!"
Filia soon found herself surrounded by a handful of soldiers and a red headed woman wearing a long sleeved shirt, skirt and heels drenched in black and was wielding a Luger pistol and a black umbrella with yellow spots on it. Each soldier held the schoolgirl at gun point while the woman slowly approached her.
"You're under arrest, come peacefully." Parasoul ordered Filia.
"What's going on?" She asked the woman.
"We have reports that you and a short overalled man have been causing some trouble here." Parasoul said. " you WILL come with us, one way or the other."
"Welp, guess we can consider this a warm-up for the tournament." Samson said to his host.
As two of the soldiers gathered near from behind to place Filia in handcuffs Samson turned her hair into a giant fist and punched the pair with such velocity, sending them flying a few yards back and slamming them into a nearby building. As Parasoul and her men prepared to open fire, Samson sprouted into wings and Filia flew in serpentine to avoid the gunfire. The soldiers then began to form a line side by side one another; this created a opportunity for the schoolgirl to quickly fly to the side and slam into them all at once.
As the soldiers lay on the ground unconscious, Filia and Parasoul quickly rose to their feet as Filia began to charge at the woman. Parasoul held her umbrella in front of her to block Filia's kicks and hair snippets but the young teen dropped to the ground and used her hair to turn her leg into a drill, hitting the woman from below. Samson then transformed into a beast and shot his hooves to the ground as he pushed his host's body towards the princess, using Filia to slam her feet first into her face and pushing her away. As Samson returned to his normal form Parasoul rose back up and began to shoot them with her Luger near her umbrella, though something seemed strange about the projectile. It didn't really seem like a bullet, but rather a large ball of napalm. Using Samson as a shield, Filia blocked the napalm shot, causing it to stop dead in the air. Curious, but not concerned, Filia went around the floating orb and continued her assault on the royal officer. As she drew near however, Parasoul used her umbrella to stick some napalm onto the schoolgirl's foot then shot the wad with her Luger, causing a minor detonation that launched Filia into the air for a brief moment before Parasoul launched a powerful thrust kick that shot the teen straight towards the previous ball of napalm, which soon detonated upon her impact. As the blast pushed her back towards the princess, Parasoul attacked her with continuous swings from her umbrella until Filia pushed her back by transforming her hair into a giant afro that pushed away the princess.
Unlike Princess Peach, this princess seemed ruthless and more focused on her objective, and it seemed unlikely that she was just gonna leave Filia with a simple slap on the wrist: this fight needed to end NOW!
Parasoul began to swing her umbrella around, flinging more balls of napalm. Filia then forms into a hairball to avoid the attack and strikes at the princess with immense speed and force, pushing them both away from the napalm balls before they could be detonated near her. The young girl then got on all fours and transformed Samson into a scorpion tail to sting Parasoul into the ground, bouncing her into the air. Samson then started to sprout out a pair of arms, grew ten times his size, and swiftly regurgitated a giant wad of skulls and hair at the princess, sending her flying a hundred feet across from Filia and knocking her out once she landed.
"Maybe next time." Filia said as she pushed her hips to the side and flickered her hand at Parasoul.
"Good job kid." Samson told his host.
"Thanks." Filia replied.
"Now let's scram before anymore weirdos show up." Samson suggested.
Filia was still curious as to who these people were and what their intentions were but she wasn't going to stick around to find out. She still needs to find the Skullgirl. There is a chance that Master Hand could help her, but it wouldn't hurt to see if she could find her on her own.
As the schoolgirl began to flee, two soldiers rose to their feet and quickly raced to Parasoul's side.
"Oh my god, she beaten Commander Parasoul!" One soldier cried out.
"YOU BASTARD!" The other shouted at Filia.
"Dammit I can't believe it!"
"Right? How is that schoolgirl so strong?"
"Not that, I just realized I'm missing the season finale of "Bushido Brutha.""
"Right? Oh man, I HAVE to find out if Bushido Brutha finally destroys the evil power and saves his girlfriend."
"Gunther, it's just a cartoon man."
"Bite me Jeff! Just help me carry Commander Parasoul, she needs medical attention. Oh well, guess I'll just catch the episode on the marathon next week."
