No Items, Fox Only, Final Destination is a catchphrase parodying the strict and “serious” behaviour of competitive players of the video game series Super Smash Bros. , or “Tourneyfags” as they are known. The memetic phrase was turned into a series of MS Paint comics on 4chan in which these players interrupt other events. The phrase is commonly edited through the snowclone “No X, Y Only, Final Destination!”
The meme refers to how these competitive players would frequently demand that battles should only be fought with all items turned and only fought in the stage Final Destination, a flat boring stage with no interesting features whatsoever, so the competition would be judged purely on skill. The Fox Only phrase comes from the over-reliance of these players on the character Fox McCloud, generally considered to be one of the highest tier characters.
On Dec 18th 2007 Youtube user Swordsman3003 uploaded the video Final Destination, featuring vocal readings of a number of the Final Destination comics. He has since made 2 (and a half) sequels to the video with other Final Destination comics.
For Glory Mode
During the Super Smash Brothers Nintendo Direct, series director Masahiro Sakurai revealed that he included an online mode inspired by the meme; with no items being allowed and Final Destination being the only stage to play on. For variety sake, he gave each stage an “Omega” Final Destination form.
