John Notwoodman: Hello everyone! It's me, John Notwoodman, [Notwoodman's character art appears onscreen, with the credit "Art: Keeby".] the CEO of King for a Day Tournament Enterprises! What's that, you say? Didn't I just get arrested for conspiracy to commit murder? Ha, ha, ha! Well, let's just say that we've got a pretty good legal team over here.
[The tournament's logo appears onscreen.]
The King for Another Day Tournament is almost upon us, and I want to give you a one-stop shop for all the information you could want on the event, so you can choose your character with confidence! Let's begin!
[Title: "Introduction". Cut to the contenders' artwork scrolling from right to left.]
First, let me explain what the King for Another Day Tournament is all about. In this event, you, the audience, will choose which of 32 characters (or teams of characters) takes over the SiIvaGunner channel for one day. Each character has a specific set of sources that the rips of their takeover will be themed around.
[Cut to a diagram of the tournament bracket.]
This time around, the tournament bracket is in a double elimination format. This means that a character who loses in a top bracket will drop to the bottom bracket and have to lose another match in order to drop out completely. In the event of a rematch, we'll also swap characters with the other side of the bracket to keep things interesting. Once the final four is reached, all bets are off! The tournament moves to a single elimination format at this time. Be prepared!

During the tournament, we'll also be uploading a huge original soundtrack. There are over 200 original tracks, themed around our various fighters and featuring some monumental special guests!
[Cut to the MOJO!!'s logo.]
Also, our companion site, the MOJO!!, will be featuring interviews with the fighters during the tournament, conducted by my good friend Meowth! [Meowth's art and the MOJO!!'s URL appear onscreen.] Check out the site to get to know our cast better!
Speaking of the cast, it's time for you to meet them! [The contender roster appears onscreen.] I'd stay and help, but... I've got to fill out some... legal paperwork. I'll turn it over to our regular narrator for now. See you on the other side!
Hinchy: Thanks, John. [Metal Ajit Pai's character art and source list appears onscreen, with the credit "Art: thefluffyslipper and Eevee ft. art team". Music: "Black History" by DM DOKURO.] The reincarnated mechanical master of memes, Metal Ajit Pai. Snapped by Thanos in the first tournament, Ajit Pai is back in mecha form, featuring rips with Ajit Pai-related memes, such as the Harlem Shake and the Reese's Puffs rap (eat 'em up!), mecha related rips, such as stuff from Evangelion and Gurren Lagann, and rips featuring latency or slow Internet, like the Brawl online practice stage.
[Geno's character art and source list appears onscreen, with the credit "Art: iahtruong". Music: "Battle Against the Dark Knight of Vanda" by Ford McTal.]
The great star warrior, Geno. This puppet turned hero is back once more for a rematch, and now features rips with songs composed by Yoko Shimomura, like music from the Kingdom Hearts series or Street Fighter II, and rips featuring music from Super Mario RPG, like the song you're hearing right now, and the Paper Mario and Mario & Luigi series. It's also worth mentioning that "Songs composed by Yoko Shimomura" would include that tribute to XXXTentacion that everyone talks about. Just food for thought.
[Off the Hook ft. Paruko's character art and source list appears onscreen, with the credit "Art: Dead Line". Music: "Ink That" by Jonny Atma.]
The hit cephalo-pop sensation, Off the Hook, once again featuring their special guest star Paruko. We just recently added arrangements done in a Splatoon style to their source list, and here's a great example of that playing right now by very very special guest Jonny Atma! In addition, they get rips featuring songs from the Splatoon franchise, including "God of ink", which is definitely from Splatoon 2!
["Weird Al" Yankovic's character art and source list appears onscreen, with the credit "Art: 813N". Music: "Ladies and Gentlemen...Leave Me Alone" by Cryptrik.]
The king of polka himself, "Weird Al" Yankovic, the parodic master, and his stand, 「BEAT IT」, make a mockery of their opponents with rips featuring songs "Weird Al" has composed or parodied and rips featuring music by Michael Jackson, including music from Sonic 3 & Knuckles, which, as we all know, was composed entirely by Michael Jackson all by himself. Also, just because "Weird Al" has a stando does not mean that he gets rips from JoJo's Bizarre Adventure. Dr. Piccolo has that, but that and about 19 more characters.
[Cut back to the bracket.]
In round 1, "Weird Al" Yankovic will face Geno.
[Pitbull and the Aliens' character art and source list appears onscreen, with the credit "Art: SHF1, mitsooru, Alexander A. McDonald". Music: "Fun" by Jp.]
Mr. Worldwide himself, Pitbull, and his new backing band, Popoy and Marcianito, the Aliens. Dale! These masters of Latin rhythms bring you rips featuring songs by Pitbull (or songs he features on), Antonio Ríos, and El Chombo. By the way, did you know that El Chombo, the guy who made "Dame Tu Cosita", also made "Chacarron Macarron"? 'Cause wow, I sure didn't! They also get rips featuring any cumbia, or reggaeton, or 2000s Latin pop music, which I would say the cutoff for that is 2009.
[Nintendo Power's character art and source list appears onscreen, with the credit "Art: Andre". Music: "K.K. Disco" by Millenium Hero.]
The most popular executives on the planet, Nintendo Power. Made of former CEO Reggie Fils-Aimé and his perpetually threatened collaborator Bill Trinen, this duo features rips from the Animal Crossing, Legend of Zelda, Wii (excluding Wii Music), Fire Emblem, and Xenoblade franchises. They also get rips featuring music from Nintendo system software, and presentations like Nintendo Directs. This includes the song "Spotted!" from Yo-kai Watch, since it's the song that plays during the skit where we learned of Bill's very special donut habit.
