Were there such parables about ninjas and foxes working together? Because both of them are similar in away that it warrants a story with a moral tucked in somewhere. Both of them, while frail in stature, are fast and can hit swiftly as the wind.
Enter Jaryl ‘Techno’ Chan and ‘YouCMe’ Kian Hwee Chin. Their respective characters of choice in the Singapore Smash Bros tournament ‘Knee For Days’ are Sheik (Princess Zelda’s alter ego) and Fox McCloud (space pilot who fights in his spare time). Both are pretty agile and can hit when least expected. Both are evenly matched as predators in their own realm.
But in this grand battle set in the Knee For Days Super Smash Bros. tournament held in Qisahn at Far East Shopping Centre (elimination match, 2 stocks/lives), the winner went to the wily cunning animal.
During set 1 of the grand finals, Techno was mostly in the lead in all 3 games, being able to read where YouCMe was going to fly off to after getting launched by an attack. The second set was where YouCme got used to Techno’s movements and dodging. As a result, he won the 1st game of the second set. The bracket was thus reset.
As game 2 hits, Techno already figured out YouCMe’s way of using Fox and made some impressive and confident reads. In the next game, YouCMe retaliated without losing a single stock. It was quite a tussle as both fighters were of equal footing.
However, in the fifth game, YouCMe got the better of Techno and persevered without losing any stock. All because the fox played a bit patient and baited the ninja to trade attacks, knowing that his will win out and knock them out of the park. YouCMe is the tournament’s champion, with Techno’s impressive-ninja-footwork coming in second.
The moral of this story? Don’t trust a fox hanging in the corner when it looks like it’s done. You’ll never know when it’ll punch you straight to the moon.
