The Invasion of the Castle is the tenth episode of Schm2000's "Rise of YouTube". This episode is 9 minutes and 4 seconds long.
UltimateZario1 and UltimateHario1 encounter each other in the Void and prepare to battle. Both opponents power up and strike each other.
Simon's Shadow encounters Schm2000's group outside of Mushroom Castle and threatens to kill them all. The mysterious hero accepts the challenge and battles the Darkwizard and 2 other Death Trappers. Mario ends up accidentally injuring Ethan while injuring a Death Trapper and both are sent flying back into MarioStar92 and YoshiFanX. The impact knocks out MS92 and YFX before the Death Trapper recovers. He knocks out iJosh64 and attempts to knock out Cooolboy78, but Brynn1100 steps in and is knocked out instead. The mysterious hero, revealed to be Musthasto, kills off the Death Trapper before being hit by another Death Trapper. Yoshi Guy, Claude, and LucarioKiddo then kill the other Death Trapper before Simon's Shadow knocks out Yoshi Guy and Claude. LK teleports away, and the Darkwizard attempts to kill Fawn. Simon takes the blow instead and is killed off. The Darkwizard then kills Axitonium and attempts to kill CB78, but Schm turns into the Endermen King and kills off Simon's Shadow first. Dalton and Shad check on Ethan before leaving with him to get away from the Mushroom Kingdom. This leaves Schm2000, Mario, LucarioKiddo, Fawn, and Musthasto to fight the Death Trappers.
At Star Road, Lugiaboy2 encounters Starman3 and gives him a slight power boost. He then tells SM3 that he is needed in the Mushroom Kingdom in order to defeat the Crystal King. DragonBallZKai5 overhears this and decides to help. When SM3 gets to the Mushroom Kingdom, he asks Mario and Musthasto for help, and they agree. SM3's group encounters Death Trappers 9 and 10 in the castle's second floor and both Mario and Musthasto fight them. DT10 knocks out Musthasto, but DT9 tells Mario that he is secretly on their side and fakes knocking him out. DT9 convinces DT10 to not attack SM3 and both meet in a private room. DT9 kills DT10 and reveals himself to be Shadowarrior454. SW454 then revives Musthasto before heading outside. He revives Brynn and tells Schm to revive everyone else with his potions. SW454's group then heads back inside to help SM3.
The Martian King prepares to fight SM3, but he is knocked away by Dragon. SM3 and Dragon then encounter the Crystal King at the top of the castle. EmigasFist, Clawdeender, the Martian King, EmigaDylan, Luke, MarioMario77777, and iJosh63 then appear to back up the Crystal King. SW454, Mario, Musthasto, and Brynn appear to help SM3, and a new hero named LuigiLuigi573 kills EmigaDylan and MM77777 before EmigasFist teleports everyone into the Void. During the fight, Dragon knocks the Martian King into iJ63, allowing Brynn to knock out Clawdeender and Luke. LL573 then attacks EmigasFist, leaving the Crystal King by himself. SM3 transforms into Fire Starman3 and both Fire SM3 and Mario kill the Crystal King off.
Schm's newly revived group congratulates SM3 on his victory, but EmigasFist reveals that he and his comrades are still alive. SM3 prepares to finish EmigasFist off, but is stopped by a mysterious attacker. Mariofan14 appears in the "To Be Continued" screen.
