Smith, The Matrix Reloaded

The Burly Brawl was an infamous fight between Neo and Smith, now a virus in the Matrix.


Smith AppearsEdit

Smith why we're here

Smith and Neo meet for the first time in over six months.

As the Oracle and Seraph left through the backdoor, Neo turned to see Smith walking towards him. The program explained he was no longer an Agent of the Matrix and he wasn't sure how any of this came to be. Thanking Neo for "unplugging" him, Smith revealed his opinion that one exists with a purpose. At this same time, Neo heard another voice behind him. One by one, more Smiths revealed themselves from behind gates, doors, and other objects; each one adding to their monologue on purpose. Finally, the first Smith said to Neo his own personal goal: to rid Neo of life and purpose.

it was purpose that created us
purpose that connects us
purpose that pulls us
that guides us
that drives us
it was purpose that defines
it was purpose that binds us.

Smith AttacksEdit

Without warning, Smith stuck his hand into Neo's body, instantly immobilizing him and spreading a black, liquid-like substance over the surface of his body. Determined to live, Neo concentrated on the affected area, forcing the infection back towards Smith's hand. Neo then swiftly yanked himself free, causing a fight between himself and the eight Smiths present. Neo fought the Smiths simultaneously and was able to hold his own for quite a while, but as much injury as he could take, they in turn would be able to take. At best, Neo would momentarily stun them, and they would keep coming back for more.

More ArriveEdit

Me, me, me.

In the middle of the brawl, more Smiths entered, raising the numbers.

Sea of SmithsEdit

Neo Burly

During the Burly Brawl, Neo takes on over thirty Smiths at the same time.

At one point, Neo was able to grab hold of an old steel pole as a weapon. Using it, Neo was able to engage the increasing numbers of Smiths pouring out from the apartments surrounding the park. Finally, unable to carry on, Neo was tackled by several foes and the programs dogpiled on top of him. Mustering extreme strength and determination, Neo pushed upward, sending the Smiths flying. Grabbing hold of the opportunity at hand, Neo flew straight up into the sky, leaving the 50-some-odd total of Smiths behind.


Upon reentering the Real World, Neo told the crew of the Nebuchadnezzar that when Smith tried to clone Neo by thrusting his hand into Neo's chest, it felt like he "was back in that hallway (by this, Neo is speaking of the hallway outside of Room 303 in the Heart O' The City Hotel, where he was shot to death by Smith before being resurrected as The One in the first film). It felt like dying."
