Previously on BIT Squad; The opening of Smash Bros Ultimate happened, and though most of BIT Squad also attempted to stop Galeem, they too were vaporized and reduced to spirits, all except 2BIT himself....and Gator and Blocky, who aren't invited to this story. In the new World of Light, 2BIT found Cupie's spirit trapped in the body of a Pit alt, and Dusk's spirit trapped in the body of a Shulk alt. However, they maintained control of themselves rather than succumbing to Galeem's will. Dusk had a Shulk-vision and led them to a place where enemies were planning to ambush Kirby. Upon defeating them, 2BIT ended up being followed by Waluigi's spirit as he set out to find the rest of BIT Squad and discover a way to defeat the seemingly unstoppable Galeem...
Well, weeks have passed. For some reason, there's no sign of the rest of BIT Squad although 2BIT gathered a number of other spirits that just didn't get to be in the story for some reason. Also, that whole thing about Galeem being unstoppable? Yeah, Kirby gathered a smaller, definitely weaker band of heroes together, marched on Galeem, and defeated it no problem. It didn't bother busting out its apocalyptic move again. This is some masterwork of plot, huh? Unfortunately, doing that enabled another evil to just come out of nowhere for no reason and create a World of Darkness. This being, Dharkon, seems like an even bigger threat... but sure, it's gonna be pretty much the same as Galeem. But maybe BIT Squad is somewhere in the World of Darkness...
Within the world of darkness, 2BIT's group somehow found themselves in a version of Hyrule. "Yaay! There's a pretty forest!" Cupie smiled. "You mean the Lost Woods?" Dusk sighed, "Then again, he stayed upbeat going through the ruins of Station Square..." he murmured. The spirit of Knuckles hovered beside him. "Not sure that was Station Square. I mean, sure, there's evidence Chaos was there, but it looked like a pretty generic ruined city." he stated. 2BIT shushed them. "I'm trying to think...so keep Waluigi occupied. I was talking to this owl statue while you guys were discussing unimportant plot points, and it told me a legendary hero is in this kingdom somewhere. Gotta be Link, right? And he was with Kirby... So, we'll finally catch up to the main group! Together, finding the rest of the squad and beating Dharkon should be a breeze!" he figured. "I was thinking Sonic when you said legendary hero, but okay. Nobody's found Sonic yet, have they?" Knuckles asked. Dusk crossed his arms. "If Kirby finds Sonic first, we'll never catch up..." he groaned. "Hey! I found Big the Cat!" Cupie cried. The group glanced in the direction of the Lost Woods. "He went in..." 2BIT sighed. "Wah ha ha!! It's Waluigi's time to shine!!" shouted Waluigi as he pushed past Knuckles! Or...through him, seeing as they were spirits. 2BIT sighed. "Noooo, we need someone who knows Hyrule. Anyone speak horse? All we got's Epona..." he said awkwardly.
"2BIT! Cupie! Dusk! Stop playing with your toys and get back to work!" Vixy was standing over the boys. They were in the figurine room in Byte Space, holding a mix of amiibo and general toys. It would really break the multiverse if they were doing this with the magical figurines. 2BIT glanced at Vixy sheepishly. "B-but we have to finish the story! We'll get through the lost woods, but Kirby's already absconded with Link and Sonic, so our legendary hero ends up being, wait for it... Banjo-Kazooie!" he said with a big ear-to-ear grin. Vixy tapped her foot. "It's been months and you've left me in charge all this time. Play time is done, back to your responsibilities!" she huffed. Dusk folded his arms. "You know, if I were cynical, I would say Vixy walking in like this is a copout to disguise the fact that we hit writer's block on this story for months and someone decided to give up on it..." he murmured. Cupie flew up and tossed up the Waluigi amiibo before catching it. "Obviously, it was gonna end with Waluigi and Banjo teaming up to beat up 8BIT while we moved on to the epic final battle from World of Light, and we'd get there just in time to watch Mario and Sonic and everyone save the day before all the spirits are whizzed back home!" he said playfully. 2BIT sighed. "Well, that can't be too far off. But my power would ensure the spirits actually got home. I don't like the ambiguity of the spirits swirling through space!" he pointed out as he stood up. "You sillies... It's just a game." Vixy sighed, "It's not like it really matters how the game ended..." she told them as she led the group out of the room.
They passed one of Byte Space's windows, the vastness of space visible outside. If one looked closely though, they would realize that one nebula in the distance was actually comprised of lost spirits tumbling through space. Dusk did a double take as they passed by. "Uhhhh, guuuuuuys
