About

The Subspace Emissary's Worlds Conquest is a piece of Super Smash Brothers fanfiction that grew famous for being the longest piece of fiction ever written at the time of its publication in early 2008, though it has since been surpassed. Online, social media found it amusing that the title of the longest piece of fiction ever written was held by a Super Smash Brothers fanfiction, leading to tributes of the work appearing online.

Origin

The Subspace Emissary's Worlds Conquest was published to Fanfiction.net[1] by AuraChannelerChris on March 4th, 2008. At 4.1 million words, it held the record for the longest work of literature ever written.[2] The Subspace Emissary's Worlds Conquest stars the roster of Super Smash Bros. Brawl. It follows the OC protagonist Chris[3] and the Pokémon Lucario going on an adventure to stop the Subspace Emissary from taking over myriad worlds. The author, also named Chris, drew artwork for the story that has appeared elsewhere online (example shown below).

Spread

In the years since it was published, the fact that The Subspace Emissary's Worlds Conquest was officially the longest piece of fiction ever written proved a source of amusement for media outlets and social media users. The achievement was written about in Kotaku[4] and Buzzfeed[5] in 2013, where Chris revealed that the project started as a way for him to practice his English.

The Subspace Emissary's Worlds Conquest held the title of longest fiction ever until 2017 when it was surpassed by the fanfiction Ambience: A Fleet Symphony,[6] and, as of March 2024, the title belongs to The Loud House: Revamped,[7] another piece of fanfiction, which clocks in at over 16 million words.

Online, the piece largely finds tributes on YouTube where users have done readings and made art dedicated to the fanfiction. For example, on May 31st, 2016, YouTuber Mac Intosh undertook reading the entire thing on his channel, and the playlist clocks in at 300 10-minute videos (first shown below, left). On April 2nd, 2019, YouTuber Kwite posted a video dedicated to reading the piece, gaining over 127,000 views in five years (shown below, right).

Man, this fanfic was my childhood. First longfic I ever followed. Looking back (to the extent one can briefly "look back" at something with more words than the works of Tolkien) it has the usual ultra-longfic quantity over quality problem of the author spitting out ideas without any idea of how they fit in with the wider work or what direction they're taking it at all. But it's a fascinating expression of one boy's love for nintendo in the Brawl era, and I can't bring myself to hate on it.
