Brawl in the Family is a gaming webcomic created by Matthew "Triforcebun" Taranto. It centers around classic Nintendo characters and games, with an emphasis on those featured in Super Smash Bros. Brawl. The site has 600 comics posted as of Oct. 3, 2014.


Brawl in the Family started as a set of comics posted on the boards of IGN and GameFAQs. Originally merely titled "Kirby Comics", the simplistic style and consistent humor drew a large number of fans, and Matthew soon decided to create a website to house this webcomic. After much consideration, the name "Brawl in the Family" was chosen. The first comic, 001 - The Showdown, was posted on the site on May 1, 2008. As of October 3, 2014, Brawl in the Family has 600 comics, and has reached its conclusion.


  • The webcomic's name is a combination of Super Smash Bros. Brawl and All in the Family.
  • Matthew has stated he chose this name because he feels the characters do interact as if they were one big family, giving the name a meaning beyond its initial pun.
