Nintendo Power are competitors in the King for Another Day Tournament. They are the duo of Reggie Fils-Aimé and Bill Trinen.
- "No one's body is ready for the true might of Nintendo Power! After Reggie retired, Miyamoto decided Reggie needed a boost from inside the company, and Bill Trinen is the perfect match. Now that these two gaming industry legends have brought their Joy-Cons together, this tournament has truly been switched on!"
- —Nintendo Power's description on the MOJO!!
Nintendo Power was originally conceived as a pair-up of Reggie and Etika by the name of The Joy-Con Men, whose rips would consist of music from the Fire Emblem, Xenoblade, Animal Crossing, Wii (excluding Wii Music), and The Legend of Zelda franchises. However, the team announced in "SiIva Direct • SiIva Lighthouse Live ∣ E3 2019" that his character would not be in the tournament, as the real Etika was publicly struggling with mental illness, and the team was concerned that the tournament could bring him unnecessary or negative attention.
The team's new incarnation as Nintendo Power was revealed in "SiIvaGunner: King for Another Day Tournament Direct 9.21.2019". The already-revealed sources remained the same, but with the addition of music from Nintendo system software and presentations, such as music from the Nintendo eShop and Wii channels and Nintendo Direct jingles.

VS[edit | edit source]
|Against||Nintendo Power's quote|
|"Hello, everyone. I have one final announcement: I am removing mechs from Daemon X Machina."|
|"I can assure you, I got Bill to go over to Square Enix Japan and cancel any plans of a Super Mario RPG remake."|
|"Your last name was pretty inaccurate to the Japanese translation. I'm honestly wondering how you screwed that up in the first place."|
|"Oh great...just what I need. More Yo-kai. We're gonna get revenge on you for possessing us! Get ready Reggie!"|
|"Reggie, I can't really speak Spanish, sorry."|
|"Looks like these two are more fans of the darker variation of Joy-Cons."|
|"Fangames based off your own franchise have made it on the Switch years before yours. What's wrong with you?"|
|"Looking at you again makes me feel just like a purple pikmin."|
|"Now that I am no longer a president of Nintendo, maybe I could fire you like Bill and run your company!"|
|"Challenge accepted! You look like you're about to burst yourself, you sure you can do this, my Tomodachi?"|
|"Hey, you can understand Japanese as well? Here's a tip:
|"Sorry to say, but the future of Jet Set Radio on the Switch is looking pretty grim. Not my problem anymore, anyway."|
|"This one is quiet...I suppose he only speaks with body language."|
|"I have "Just A Feeling" that I'm gonna kick your ass!"|
|"Johnny, did you cry when you got that hair cut?"|
|"This is Reggie from Nintendo. I am pleased to announce that Spongebob: Battle for Bikini Bottom is no longer coming to Switch."|
|"I recently got a plastic ass as a farewell gift. Would it happen to be yours?"|
|"At least Bowser is able to capture a princess. You can't even capture a hedgehog!"|
|"I remember being so tired of hearing your song on Flipnote Hatena. We discontinued the service early just because of it."|
|"Hey, who turned off the lights?"|
|"Bill once grew a beard larger than you will ever have, in just the span of a few hours."|
|"Dr. Mario, Dr. Kawashima, Dr. Luigi, and now YOU? I'm starting to think we're making too many games about doctors..."|
|"Aren't you that virtual boy?"|
|"Bill! Look! Looks like you can finally make your own donuts! ...And not eat the ones I bought!"|
|"Reggie, why don't you pull out those dance moves you brought to that meeting? Now would be a good time."|
|"Konnichiwa, everyone from Japan. I am Reggie of Nintendo of America."|
|"I appreciate you being there for my goodbye photo, but I think it's about time I take Tropical Freeze off the shelves."|
|"I don't think I can translate this...thing... its whole shape is made out of gibberish!"|
|"Today, I am proud to announce that we are planning on removing cats from Nintendogs + Cats!"|
|"Your language alone is the reason why your My Nintendo account was banned straight from the very start."|
|"Oh hey! Congrats on getting the Phoenix Wright Trilogy on the Switch! Too bad that I'm about to remove it from the eShop."|
Victory[edit | edit source]
|Against||Nintendo Power's quote|
|"Now where did that Fils-A-Mech go.."|
|"Go back to the Grinch and tell him his leak was doomed from the start, it had YOU in it."|
|"The Splatoon games were a short-lived novelty. I think it's time to start "fresh" with a new IP."|
|"That's what you get for making me dance in the middle of an important meeting!"|
|"Uhh...Adios, amigos! Arigato!"|
|"Hey, if you ever meet a Japanese alien in need of translation, hit me up anytime! Not during my work hours though, please."|
|"If you ever want to go to a donut cafe to talk up our Japanese skills, please let me know!"|
|"Your gauntlet is no match for my trusty Power Glove!"|
|"This is Reggie, former president of Nintendo. I have taken over Wario Partners, LLP, and will now rename every WarioWare title to "ReggieRare"."|
|"Bill, look at him. How pathetic. Whatever happened to you eating oranges? Get a diet or you'll end up looking like him."|
|"Guess he can't hide from the truth. Nintendo will always beat Konami!"|
|"I feel your DJ skills may have gotten a bit rusty over the years. Why not try out the power of our Nintendo Labo Piano?"|
|""Cave Story+"? I think it's time for a downgrade. "Cave Story-" will never be released on Nintendo Switch ever!"|
|"Nothing like a fresh, Sunday Morning, playing Nintendo."|
|"Bill, you were pretty wrong, I'm pretty sure this is the cheesiest guy I've EVER met."|
|"Would any creatures from Rock Bottom happen to need any form of translation? May be good for advertising."|
|"I'm such a huge fan; never mind my friend, your lyrics are incredible! I hope we can meet again sometime!"|
|"You know, it really is no wonder why SEGA stopped making consoles and bowed down to us. It's their best decision yet."|
|"All hail the Virtual Boy."|
|"If I were to be honest, I easily prefer playing the Japanese version of Undertale."|
|"If you want education, you two are free to join one of my lectures anytime! I don't know what I can teach about Octagons, though..."|
|"Sorry, but I think both Reggie and I know the power of showing the Switch's true colors."|
|"Also, would you mind telling Arsene to stop kicking my ass in Elite Smash?"|
|"Mmm...It's dangling! Mmm..mmmmm..num..mmm... *BURP*"|
|"Yo-Kai, Yo-Kai, Yo-Kai, Yo-Kai, Yo-Kai won't you be my friend?"|
|"If anyone is looking for a Christmas present for Reggie, I recommend Art Academy: Lessons for Everyone for Nintendo 3DS. He could probably use some practice."|
|"See you later, old friend. I'll make sure Bowser gives you as much bananas as you want."|
|"We're about kicking ass and taking names: you're about breaking games."|
|"Bill, you're telling me that while I was gone they put Nekopara on the eShop? What's wrong with you?"|
|"I hope that makes it clear that owning a Joy-Con isn't as cheap as 50 cents."|
|"Did you really think you could win a case against us? I mean... c'mon now, I guess that's just the power of Nintendo."|
