Travis Touchdown is first encountered in a warehouse in Santa Destroy fighting enemies, as Smoosh arrives on Planet Suda. At first Travis Touchdown is hostile to the heroes; but Shigeru Miyamoto clears up the misunderstanding, as Travis thought Smoosh was there to fight.
as Miyamoto later explained, Sola Soulhawk and Doosh were replacing the members of the UAA to try and prevent Travis' rise to the top for unknown reasons.
-GM Note: He was considered to be made a member of Smoosh, but I later dropped the idea.
-GM Note: He will appear again.
