Create a Fighter and Moveset (Revival Thread 2)

Recommended Posts

So with Sephiroth in a lot of people are of the opinion of "They could have pulled from a Final Fantasy character from a different game." And my personal first choice in that category would be Cecil from Final Fantasy IV. So here is a Cecil moveset.

So because people complain about swords, he'll use a weapon that's less like a sword and more like the lance thingie he uses in Dissidia.

DissidiaCecilArt.png

And just like Dissidia he will freely change back and forth between his Dark Knight and Paladin forms. First off his Specials.

Paladin Cecil

Neutral Special: Protect

Cecil casts a spell that gives him a green aura. This reduces both damage taken and knockback, but slows Cecil down somewhat.

Side Special: Searchlight

An attack taken from Cecil's appearance in Dissidia: Final Fantasy. He shoots forward a glowing orb that in turns shoots light magic at nearby enemies. In practice it is most similar to Palutena's auto reticle.

Up Special: Sky Grinder

One of Cecil's Bands with Kain in Final Fantasy IV: The After Years. A simple upwards strike most similar to Shulk's Air Slash.

Down Special Cura

Cecil charges up a Cure spell that recovers 10% of his damage taken. This special has a long start up before being performed (about as long as Ganondorf's up tilt) and it cannot be cancelled once it is initiated.

 

Dark Knight Cecil

Neutral Special: Soul Eater

Cecil casts a spell that gives him a purple aura. This increases his damage and knockback, but causes his own damage to increase whenever he attacks, just like Pichu (only more extreme).

Side Special: Dark Flame

Another attack taken from Dissidia. Cecil stabs his lance into the ground causing a flaming attack to travel forth. In Dissidia in tracks along the air, but in Smash it would travel along the ground.

Up Special: Ultima Spark

Based on Cecil's band with Golbez in The After Years. Cecil shoots a large blast of Dark Energy below him, propelling him upwards slightly. A powerful attack, but only offers slight recovery potential.

Down Special Black Sky

This is taken from an ability Dark Knights use in Final Fantasy X-2. A powerful meteor barrage. Similar to his Paladin variation's down special, it's a risky attack with a high amount of start up that cannot be cancelled. The meteors appear a little above Cecil and travel in a downward angle giving them a bit of an awkward trajectory to hit with, but they do cover a wide area if  you can pull the attack off. Particularly good for edge guarding.

 

 

So you might notice there's a lack of actual transformation special in there like Pokemon Trainer or Zelda/Sheik. I easily could have had one. Protect and Soul Eater could have been innate traits of the different classes rather than special moves you have to use, but I thought I'd make it more interesting and allow players to change more freely. So instead of a transformation move, Cecil will change into a Paladin whenever he shields and a Dark Knight whenever he uses a Smash Attack. This is a bit weird, but I think  it would make for a far more interesting moveset. Paladin Cecil is all about defense while Dark Knight Cecil is all about attack. You need to do both in Smash so maintaining a certain form is not up to your own will but with what your enemy does and how you choose to play in a fight. Frequently in Smash transforming takes so long that you might as well just have two different characters. This way the two forms are fully integrated. Staying in one form simply isn't feasible. It would take a lot more mastery to learn how to utilize a character like this, but I think it would be worth it for a lot of players.

Of note, Protect and Soul Eater will last indefinitely so long as Cecil is in that form, but will be cancelled when he transforms. So he will have to reapply them a lot to get the maximum benefits of both forms. In otherwards, a good way to force a Soul Eater Cecil that is rushing you to stop is to force him to shield. And vice versa to stop a tanky Paladin Cecil who keeps trying to heal is to force them to attack. If Kirby copies Soul Eater or Protect however the auras will fade after a few dozen seconds.

I won't bother going into other specific attacks. Just to summerize, Paladin Cecil's attacks will be quite fast, but weak, while Dark Knight Cecil's attacks will be strong, but leave him quite open with ending lag. His Smash attacks (which are Dark Knight exclusive) do come out pretty fast however to enable faster transformation.

Oh and for a Final Smash, let's use the Final Fantasy attack from The After Years. Basically a Megaman/Shulk attack where his endgame allies from Final Fantasy IV all assist him.

Bomberman

Spoiler

Bomberman Blasts a Path! As one might guess from his name, Bomberman's main focus is using bombs as weapons and tools to destroy enemies and obstacles. Bomberman has an unorthodox fighting style revolving around setting bombs and luring opponents into the blast zone to damage and knock them out. He can set up to five bombs at once, which is referred to as his "bomb limit", and if set properly can cause a chain blast. However, Bomberman can be harmed by his own bombs' explosions, so be careful!

In addition to setting bombs on the ground, Bomberman can kick bombs to make them slide or pick up and throw them. They can be knocked around with punches, kicks, or hammers, though fire or sharp weapons such as swords or spears can cause them to detonate prematurely. Unlike most bombs in Smash, Bomberman's bombs don't automatically explode on contact and will instead deal minimal damage, hitstun, and knockback. However, his smashes have him throw bombs with more force, causing more damage and knockback.

  • N Special: Big Bomb - Bomberman holds out a bomb and either throws it (tap) or charges it up into a big bomb then throws it (hold, then release). Big bombs have bigger, more powerful explosions than regular bombs and cannot be knocked around by punches or kicks.
  • F Special: Line Bomb - Bomberman creates a line of bombs to the left or right of him. If he does not have any bombs out, the line will be five bombs long, otherwise its length will be subtracted by the number of bombs out.
  • U Special: Bomb Jump - Bomberman jumps off a bomb which falls downward. He can use this special as long as he has not reached his bomb limit.
  • D Special: Remote Bomb - Bomberman sets a Remote Bomb which can be detonated with a second use of the D Special. While the Remote Bomb is out, subsequent bombs you place will also be Remote Bombs.
  • N attack: Bomb Set/Pick Up/Throw/Punch - Bomberman sets a bomb. If a bomb is in front of him, he will pick it up, allowing him to throw it with the attack button. If Bomberman does not have a bomb in front of him and he has reached his bomb limit, he will throw a punch.
  • F tilt: Bomb Set/Kick - Bomberman sets a bomb while walking forward. If a bomb is not front of him and he has reached his bomb limit, he will kick.
  • F smash: Smash Bomb Throw - Bomberman winds up then throws the bomb forward. The bomb deals more damage and knockback on impact. If Bomberman has reached his bomb limit, he'll throw a slightly stronger punch.
  • Dash: Running Bomb Throw - Bomberman chucks a bomb forward while hopping on one foot. If he's reached his bomb limit, Bomberman will throw an awkward-looking punch.
  • U tilt: Uppercut
  • U smash: Smash Bomb Toss - Bomberman winds up then tosses the bomb upward. The bomb deals more damage and knockback on impact. If Bomberman has reached his bomb limit, Bomberman throws a slightly stronger uppercut.
  • D tilt: Bomb Set/Low Kick - Sets a bomb on the ground. If Bomberman has reached his bomb limit or he has a bomb in front of him, he will kick. When used near a bomb, this will send the bomb sliding along the ground.
  • D smash: Bomberman plants a bomb into the ground, leaving a trap for opponents to stumble into.
  • N air: Bomb Drop/Kick - Bomberman drops a bomb in the air. If he has reached his bomb limit, he will perform a flying kick which is capable of sending a bomb flying and sliding.
  • F air: Bomb Throw/Punch - Bomberman throws a bomb forward in the air. If he has reached his bomb limit, he will throw a punch instead.
  • B air: Backhand Punch
  • U air: Bomberman kicks upward with a flip. If he hits a bomb with this attack, it will send the bomb flying backwards behind him.
  • D air: Bomberman turns towards the camera and throws a bomb downwards. If Bomberman has reached his bomb limit, he performs a sideways double-fist slam.
  • Final Smash: Bomberman Heroes - Bomberman throws a Gravity Bomb that catches opponents. Bomberman then summons heroes from across the Bomberman series including Pretty Bomber, Nitros, Max, and the Elemental Knights who all throw bombs at the captured opponents, ending with a giant bomb from Bomberman himself.

Kirby Hat: Edelgard’s post-timeskip hair

 

I really like this one. I like how you incorporated rising star; having it that the move keeps going every time it lands a blow is a very clever way to incorporate the art's gimmick into action combat. Having her grab use Amyr's scythe-mode is also clever (I went with Banshee O as the grab because of the reduced movement; since Edelgard doesn't learn banshee O, your idea makes a lot more sense). 

Funny; we both had the same idea for her up-special but used different names for it. 

I like the idea behind how you incorporated crests; I'm just not sure about introducing the element of chance. I suppose she wouldn't be the first character to have it (Mr. Game & Watch's side-special).

I like how you made it that there's both the pre-timeskip (student) version of her and the post-timeskip (emperor) version of her. Having the kirby hat be her emperor hairstyle is also a nice touch. 

I'm not sure about her final smash being the exploding barrel attack. I mean; I like the idea of one of the battalion gambits being the final smash; I'm just not sure if an animation of a barrel in a cart slowing moving towards the opponent before exploding is the one to go for.

I like the idea behind how you incorporated crests; I'm just not sure about introducing the element of chance. I suppose she wouldn't be the first character to have it (Mr. Game & Watch's side-special).

Thanks for the feedback. I just incorporated the element of chance because that's how it worked in Three Houses.

You're welcome. That makes sense.

By the way, what did you think of the (admittedly incomplete) moveset I created for Edelgard at the beginning of the thread; the one that uses Edelgard, Dimitri and Claude as something of an FE version of Pokémon Trainer?

A bit janky, even if it's incomplete.

I see. Any suggestions for improving what is completed, such as the special moves for the three characters?

Character: Soldier

Series: The Legend of Zelda 2D games

Description: A generic soldier that has appeared throughout the 2D Zelda games. They are small (around Toon Link's size), heavy thanks to their armor, and they're armed with the full armory of Hyrule.

Palette: Green, Red, Blue, Grey, Grey & Horned (Ball-&-Chain Soldier), Gold (Sky Soldier), Orange (OOT Iron Knuckle), Black (Twilight Princess Darknut)

Normal Attacks:

Spoiler

Jab: Poke the opponent with a short sword outstretched. Little damage and almost no knockback, but easily repeatable.

side-standard: poke with a long sword outstretched.

up-standard: poke up with a long sword outstretched.

down-standard: poke low with a long sword outstretched. 

dash attack: a lunging strike with the long sword like that of the Chief Soldiers in Four Swords Adventures.

 

Aerial Attacks:

Spoiler

normal-aerial: bow. In fact, all aerial attacks are the bow.

 

Smash Attacks:

Spoiler

forward-smash: throw spear forward at opponent. Good KO if the tip hits the opponent. 

up-smash: throw spear upward at opponent. Same tip effect.

down-smash: Slash low on both sides with long sword.

 

Special Attacks:

Spoiler

normal-special: Ball & Chain. Hold B to swing the ball and chain around the soldier: dealing great damage and knockback to foes it hits while also protecting against any projectiles that hit the ball. Release B to send the ball and chain forward, with great forward range and even greater damage and knockback, then hold B again to bring it back. The soldier can move at walking speed and jump while B is held.

side-special: Cannon. The soldier brings out a cannon and shoots a cannonball at the opponent. This move takes inspiration from Cannon Soldiers that were cut from A Link to the Past.

up-special: spin attack.

down-special: bombs. These bombs are larger than the ones thrown by Link and deal greater damage, but there's an increased delay in explosion if they hit the ground before hitting an opponent.

 

What do you guys think? Any suggestions for improvement? I honestly thought the wide variation in enemy soldiers in the 2D Zelda games would give me plenty to work with, but I guess not.

B + Forwards : Drill Run; Eggman rushes forward in a drill car (15%, OK knockback). The drill itself cancels out the Drill item, and can be released by pressing B again.

General Scales

Spoiler

General Scales Sharpens His Claws! Scales is a heavy and strong yet startlingly fast fighter who chases his opponents down and beats them into submission with brutal efficiency.

  • N Special: SharpClaw - Scales orders a SharpClaw warrior to run forward and attack. When used in the air, he'll throw the SharpClaw forward instead. You can hold the button down to have Scales hold the SharpClaw in front of him like a shield, then release to throw the SharpClaw forward.
  • S Special: LightFoot - Scales lunges forward. If he makes contact with an opponent, he'll kick off of them, allowing him to use LightFoot again.
  • U Special: CloudRunner - Scales grabs onto a small CloudRunner who lifts him upward. Scales can release the CloudRunner early, or wait for it to tire, causing him to descend more slowly.
  • D Special: ShadowHunter - Scales turns invisible for a brief time, allowing him to get a sneak attack in on a foe. This is based on the Krazoa Test of Fear, in which an illusionary silhouette of Scales appears alongside ShadowHunters to test Fox's courage.
  • N attack: Scales swipes with his Clawhook.
  • F tilt: Scales performs a vertical chop with his sword.
  • Dash: Scales performs a sort of headbutt tackle, similar to what his SharpClaw warriors use in SFA.
  • F smash: Scales spins and whips forward with his tail.
  • U tilt: Scales throws an uppercut with his Clawhook.
  • U smash: Scales slashes overhead with his sword.
  • D tilt: Scales swipes low with his Clawhook.
  • D smash: Scales spins and sweeps with his tail.
  • N air: Scales slashes with his sword.
  • F air: Scales throws an overhead punch with his Clawhook.
  • B air: Scales slashes behind him with his sword.
  • U air: Scales kicks upward.
  • D air: Scales thrusts both feet downward, similar to Ganondorf.
  • Grab: Scales's sword vanishes and he grabs the opponent with his claw.
  • Pummel: Scales crushes the opponent in his claw.
  • F Throw: Scales throws the opponent forward and downwards, much like he did to Krystal at the beginning of Star Fox Adventures.
  • B Throw: Scales throws his opponent behind him with a backhand toss.
  • U Throw: Scales throws the opponent upward with an underhand toss.
  • D Throw: Scales throws the opponent to the ground, stomps on them, and kicks them.
  • Final Smash: King RedEye - Scales summons the ruler of the RedEye tribe, who Scales rides atop of as he charges forward and attacks.
  • U Taunt: General Scales laughs.
  • S Taunt: "You dare to challenge me?"
  • D Taunt: "You will regret this..."
  • U Victory: Scales holds up a caged CloudRunner, declaring "I rule the dinosaur tribes!"
  • S Victory: Scales grabs Krystal, proclaims "No one can defeat General Scales!" and throws Krystal off his ship.
  • D Victory: General Scales steps on the viewer, causing the camera to look up at him from below as he laughs cruelly.

Costumes: Default, Dark blue armor, Yellow scales, Blue scales, Green scales and armor, Gray scales, Yellow-brown scales and red armor, Red scales

Tidus (Final Fantasy X)

Playstile: Mostly a speedy combo-based fighter.
Being a pro Blitzball player, he has many kick-based moves for his weaker attacks and combo starters, while uses his sword, Fraternity, for some Smash attacks and other special attacks.
He's also very agile, with good movement and air speed, and good jump height. Above average fall speed.

Appearance: Regular FFX appearance (Skin n.1, while n.2 through 4 would be alternate colors), with his Dissidia version as a costume (n.5, while n.6 through 8 would be alternate colors)
His alternate colors would be references to Auron, Yuna, Jecht, Wakka, Lulu, Kimahri (rip Rikku)

Personal Mechanic: Sphere Grid

Spoiler

His special attacks change depending on his most used normal attacks (Jab, Tilts and Dash attack - Aerials - Smash attacks)
More specifically, every normal attack that connects fills a secret gauge with points: the normal attacks which filled the gauge the most will determine which special attacks Tidus will have access to
Although players cannot see the exact numbers, they will be able to see visible references above Tidus's icon (think of Little Mac's KO gauge): a line of colored spheres starts appearing as Tidus lands attacks (Jab and Tilts -> red sphere; Smash attacks -> purple sphere; Aerial attacks -> yellow sphere)

Red Spheres grant Tidus combo-focused special attacks and great mobility;
Purple Spheres grant offensive spells such as Bio, Water and so on;
Yellow Spheres grant miscellaneous abilities such as Cheer, Haste and so on

Current Sphere Grid mode deactivates after any player loses a stock.

 

Battle Stance: His regular stance from FFX

Idle Animations: 1) Tidus does some light warm-up jumps, while stretching his neck muscles, and says "Let's Smash!" (reference to his "Let's Blitz!" line)
                               2) Tidus assumes the same pose he has in his Dissidia (2008) artwork

Taunts: Up) Tidus raises his punch and says "Let's end this quickly!"
              Side) Tidus raises his shoulders with a "eh, whatever" attitude and says "Relax, take it easy!"
              Down) His infamous laugh. It just can't be missing

Jab: Single attack, Tidus kicks like a soccer player, his leg covers a decently wide area. Useful for low-percentage combos.

Dash Attack: His regular attack animation from FFX. Quite slow, but good kill power.

Tilt Attacks:

Spoiler

Side Tilt: Tidus sticks Fraternity into the ground and uses it as a pivot to extend his downward kick's range (small hitbox above Tidus, most of the hitbox is in front of him; his leg is intangible, and his shoe is a sweetspot, useful to counter moves such as Ike's, Fox's and Falco's side specials)

Down Tilt: A swiping kick close to the ground, similar to Mario's down tilt. Main combo starter

Up Tilt: Tidus sticks Fraternity into the ground and uses it as a pivot to kick above him, creating an arc, similar to Min Min's up tilt

 

Smash attacks:

Spoiler

Side Smash: Tidus first attacks horizontally by thrusting with Fraternity's knob, and if this weak attack connects, by pressing the attack button again, Tidus spins twice, following the first attack's movement, and then slashes the opponent with an oblique downward attack.

Down Smash: Tidus sticks Fraternity into the ground and uses it as a pivot to make a single, circular heel kick, close to the ground. Tidus attacks in front of him first, then behind him. A very quick and not too powerful smash attack, but his very horizontal launch angle can be annoying to deal with.

Up Smash: Tidus jumps and performs a flip, while covering the area above him with a slash of Fraternity. Attack starts from behind.

 

Aerial attacks:

Spoiler

Neutral Air: Tidus performs a single full flip while twisting rapidly, as if he were to dive. Multihit (think of Lucas's and Mewtwo's NAirs), good for combos and out of shield.

Forward Air: A bycicle kick in front of him. Decent vertical range, good horizontal reach, this attack is quick and good for extending combos.
Shoe's sweetspot launches more horizontally and has more kill power, while the leg sends the opponent a bit more diagonally and not as far. Leg is intangible.

Back Air: Tidus first attacks behind him with a downward heel kick, then performs an overhead kick with the other leg, causing a meteor effect (think of Lucas's back air)

Up Air: Tidus launches Fraternity above him, making it spin vertically (think of Joker's up tilt) and covering a good area. Good kill power, amazing combo finisher, especially if platforms are integrated.

Down Air: Tidus does a scissor kick with both legs under him, then flips and concludes with a powerful stomp, causing a meteor effect.

 

Special Moves (Red Spheres):

Spoiler

Neutral B: Tidus kicks a Blitzball ball in front of him, covering a good horizontal range. The ball's dimension is a halfway between Samus's chargable projectile and Wii Fit Trainer's ball. Trajectory isn't perfectly horizontal (think of Link's arrows). Can be used mid-air. Useful to stop some low recovery options, if well spaced.

Side B: A command grab special move. Tidus rapidly dashes forward  (covers a bit less than half of Final Destination's platform's length) and if an opponent is hit, Tidus grabs them with Fraternity's hook and throws them at a 75 degree angle (when facing right). Good combo starter, leaves the opponent open for basically every aerial attack, or even an Up Tilt or an Up Smash at low percentages. When used off-stage, this move causes free fall, unless an opponent is caught: when this happens, Side B cannot be used again as long as you don't land, but Tidus doesn't suffer free fall.

Down B: A move similar to Sheik's Bouncing Fish (adjustable). When pressing B again, Tidus dive-bombs with a heel kick at 40 degree angle, depending on the chosen direction.
Not pressing B causes Tidus to bounce off the opponent and effectively gaining a third jump, while causing a meteor effect on them.

Up B: Tidus throws a Blitzball ball in the air, then jumps with great force following its trajectory (normally at an 80 degree angle when facing right, adjustable). This move's animation has Tidus actually facing the opposite direction, as if executing a backflip dive ending with an overhead kick (reference to the first CGI cutscene you see in FFX). The ball is a hitbox, and at the jump's peak, a light spark suggests that you can press B again to kick the ball at a 30 degree angle downwards (adjustable). Regrdless of what you do, the move leaves Tidus open in free fall. If you don't kick the ball, it will fall, losing its hitbox.

 

Special Moves (Purple Spheres):

Spoiler

Neutral B: Bio. Tidus casts a mass of poisonous substances from above (around Tidus's height), in front of him (around one Battlefield's small platform away), which falls and causes the opponent to constantly suffer damage for a period of time.

Side B: Blizzard - Blizzara - Blizzaga. Tidus casts an ice crystal which stuns the opponent upon contact (chargeable for bigger hitbox, higher damage and longer travel distance and stun)

Down B: Fire. Tidus makes use of a Fire cast's propulsion to dash forward with a heel kick. If the kick connects, Tidus follows with a slash of Fraternity while keeping a bit of inertia. Good kill power. When used while airborne, the propulsion causes Tidus to dive-bomb at a 30 degree angle downwards. Airborne Down B doesn't allow for a slash attack. If hitting with the first frames of Airborne Down B, opponent suffers a meteor effect.

Up B: Water. Tidus casts a jet of water which allows him to recover. Trajectory is adjustable (Lucario's Extreme Speed), and the water has windbox effect.

 

Special Moves (Yellow Spheres):

Spoiler

Neutral B: Haste. Tidus gains a great buff to movement speed, air speed and jump height, at the cost of less defense, for a period of time. Any other character-generated buff already present on Tidus is overwritten.

Side B: Cheer. Tidus gains a little buff to damage dealt, knockback and defense. Allies within a limited area gain these buffs as well, altough for a shorter period of time. Any other character-generated buff already present on Tidus and his allies is overwritten.

Down B: Steal. Tidus can steal an opponent's projectile and then throw it back within a certain period of time.

Up B: Flee. Basically a third jump, with Tidus acting as if running away from a frightening foe.

Final Smash: Blitz Ace
Same as his last Overdrive attack. Party member who throws Tidus the ball is random.

i didn't expect this to take as much time as it did

That's an interesting moveset! Neat way to reference FFX's most notable mechanic.

thanks! i felt pretty inspired and took the time to elaborate this whacky moveset, altough i doubt it would actually be doable, as it probably would take too much development time for a single character

Tidus (Final Fantasy X)

Playstile: Mostly a speedy combo-based fighter.
Being a pro Blitzball player, he has many kick-based moves for his weaker attacks and combo starters, while uses his sword, Fraternity, for some Smash attacks and other special attacks.
He's also very agile, with good movement and air speed, and good jump height. Above average fall speed.

Appearance: Regular FFX appearance (Skin n.1, while n.2 through 4 would be alternate colors), with his Dissidia version as a costume (n.5, while n.6 through 8 would be alternate colors)
His alternate colors would be references to Auron, Yuna, Jecht, Wakka, Lulu, Kimahri (rip Rikku)

Personal Mechanic: Sphere Grid

  Hide contents

His special attacks change depending on his most used normal attacks (Jab, Tilts and Dash attack - Aerials - Smash attacks)
More specifically, every normal attack that connects fills a secret gauge with points: the normal attacks which filled the gauge the most will determine which special attacks Tidus will have access to
Although players cannot see the exact numbers, they will be able to see visible references above Tidus's icon (think of Little Mac's KO gauge): a line of colored spheres starts appearing as Tidus lands attacks (Jab and Tilts -> red sphere; Smash attacks -> purple sphere; Aerial attacks -> yellow sphere)

Red Spheres grant Tidus combo-focused special attacks and great mobility;
Purple Spheres grant offensive spells such as Bio, Water and so on;
Yellow Spheres grant miscellaneous abilities such as Cheer, Haste and so on

Current Sphere Grid mode deactivates after any player loses a stock.

 

Battle Stance: His regular stance from FFX

Idle Animations: 1) Tidus does some light warm-up jumps, while stretching his neck muscles, and says "Let's Smash!" (reference to his "Let's Blitz!" line)
                               2) Tidus assumes the same pose he has in his Dissidia (2008) artwork

Taunts: Up) Tidus raises his punch and says "Let's end this quickly!"
              Side) Tidus raises his shoulders with a "eh, whatever" attitude and says "Relax, take it easy!"
              Down) His infamous laugh. It just can't be missing

Jab: Single attack, Tidus kicks like a soccer player, his leg covers a decently wide area. Useful for low-percentage combos.

Dash Attack: His regular attack animation from FFX. Quite slow, but good kill power.

Tilt Attacks:

  Hide contents

Side Tilt: Tidus sticks Fraternity into the ground and uses it as a pivot to extend his downward kick's range (small hitbox above Tidus, most of the hitbox is in front of him; his leg is intangible, and his shoe is a sweetspot, useful to counter moves such as Ike's, Fox's and Falco's side specials)

Down Tilt: A swiping kick close to the ground, similar to Mario's down tilt. Main combo starter

Up Tilt: Tidus sticks Fraternity into the ground and uses it as a pivot to kick above him, creating an arc, similar to Min Min's up tilt

 

Smash attacks:

  Hide contents

Side Smash: Tidus first attacks horizontally by thrusting with Fraternity's knob, and if this weak attack connects, by pressing the attack button again, Tidus spins twice, following the first attack's movement, and then slashes the opponent with an oblique downward attack.

Down Smash: Tidus sticks Fraternity into the ground and uses it as a pivot to make a single, circular heel kick, close to the ground. Tidus attacks in front of him first, then behind him. A very quick and not too powerful smash attack, but his very horizontal launch angle can be annoying to deal with.

Up Smash: Tidus jumps and performs a flip, while covering the area above him with a slash of Fraternity. Attack starts from behind.

 

Aerial attacks:

  Hide contents

Neutral Air: Tidus performs a single full flip while twisting rapidly, as if he were to dive. Multihit (think of Lucas's and Mewtwo's NAirs), good for combos and out of shield.

Forward Air: A bycicle kick in front of him. Decent vertical range, good horizontal reach, this attack is quick and good for extending combos.
Shoe's sweetspot launches more horizontally and has more kill power, while the leg sends the opponent a bit more diagonally and not as far. Leg is intangible.

Back Air: Tidus first attacks behind him with a downward heel kick, then performs an overhead kick with the other leg, causing a meteor effect (think of Lucas's back air)

Up Air: Tidus launches Fraternity above him, making it spin vertically (think of Joker's up tilt) and covering a good area. Good kill power, amazing combo finisher, especially if platforms are integrated.

Down Air: Tidus does a scissor kick with both legs under him, then flips and concludes with a powerful stomp, causing a meteor effect.

 

Special Moves (Red Spheres):

  Hide contents

Neutral B: Tidus kicks a Blitzball ball in front of him, covering a good horizontal range. The ball's dimension is a halfway between Samus's chargable projectile and Wii Fit Trainer's ball. Trajectory isn't perfectly horizontal (think of Link's arrows). Can be used mid-air. Useful to stop some low recovery options, if well spaced.

Side B: A command grab special move. Tidus rapidly dashes forward  (covers a bit less than half of Final Destination's platform's length) and if an opponent is hit, Tidus grabs them with Fraternity's hook and throws them at a 75 degree angle (when facing right). Good combo starter, leaves the opponent open for basically every aerial attack, or even an Up Tilt or an Up Smash at low percentages. When used off-stage, this move causes free fall, unless an opponent is caught: when this happens, Side B cannot be used again as long as you don't land, but Tidus doesn't suffer free fall.

Down B: A move similar to Sheik's Bouncing Fish (adjustable). When pressing B again, Tidus dive-bombs with a heel kick at 40 degree angle, depending on the chosen direction.
Not pressing B causes Tidus to bounce off the opponent and effectively gaining a third jump, while causing a meteor effect on them.

Up B: Tidus throws a Blitzball ball in the air, then jumps with great force following its trajectory (normally at an 80 degree angle when facing right, adjustable). This move's animation has Tidus actually facing the opposite direction, as if executing a backflip dive ending with an overhead kick (reference to the first CGI cutscene you see in FFX). The ball is a hitbox, and at the jump's peak, a light spark suggests that you can press B again to kick the ball at a 30 degree angle downwards (adjustable). Regrdless of what you do, the move leaves Tidus open in free fall. If you don't kick the ball, it will fall, losing its hitbox.

 

Special Moves (Purple Spheres):

  Hide contents

Neutral B: Bio. Tidus casts a mass of poisonous substances from above (around Tidus's height), in front of him (around one Battlefield's small platform away), which falls and causes the opponent to constantly suffer damage for a period of time.

Side B: Blizzard - Blizzara - Blizzaga. Tidus casts an ice crystal which stuns the opponent upon contact (chargeable for bigger hitbox, higher damage and longer travel distance and stun)

Down B: Fire. Tidus makes use of a Fire cast's propulsion to dash forward with a heel kick. If the kick connects, Tidus follows with a slash of Fraternity while keeping a bit of inertia. Good kill power. When used while airborne, the propulsion causes Tidus to dive-bomb at a 30 degree angle downwards. Airborne Down B doesn't allow for a slash attack. If hitting with the first frames of Airborne Down B, opponent suffers a meteor effect.

Up B: Water. Tidus casts a jet of water which allows him to recover. Trajectory is adjustable (Lucario's Extreme Speed), and the water has windbox effect.

 

Special Moves (Yellow Spheres):

  Hide contents

Neutral B: Haste. Tidus gains a great buff to movement speed, air speed and jump height, at the cost of less defense, for a period of time. Any other character-generated buff already present on Tidus is overwritten.

Side B: Cheer. Tidus gains a little buff to damage dealt, knockback and defense. Allies within a limited area gain these buffs as well, altough for a shorter period of time. Any other character-generated buff already present on Tidus and his allies is overwritten.

Down B: Steal. Tidus can steal an opponent's projectile and then throw it back within a certain period of time.

Up B: Flee. Basically a third jump, with Tidus acting as if running away from a frightening foe.

Final Smash: Blitz Ace
Same as his last Overdrive attack. Party member who throws Tidus the ball is random.

i didn't expect this to take as much time as it did

No Shuyin alt. 0/10. Though really I could imagine this actually being quite an irritating fighter to play as. Your ability to actually control what specials he's using seems quite limited, especially in the heat of battle when you're going to be more focused on performing the attacks that best damage the opponent rather than putting him in a certain mode. I'd pair it down to just two different forms, maybe remove magic as Tidus is never depicted as magically inclined. His overdrives feel conspicuously missing too, aside from Blitz Ace. Maybe the down or side specials could be Spiral Cut and Slice and Dice at a squint, but Energy Rain is missing and absolutely shouldn't be.

Tiny correction- Haste/ga & Slow/ga is in "his section" of the Standard Sphere Grid, which should be taken as defining an FFX character.

However, those spells don't deal damage. And furthermore, I would hazard they would let Tidus destroy Smash's balance more than Yojimbo. Buffing your movement & attack speed and decreasing your enemies (barring Bayo's Witch Time counter) sounds very problematic when attack speed demons have often dominated Smash since Melee.

Well yes, obviously excepting his time magic, which was already in a seperate section of your moveset. And while I'm not sure how it should be implemented, it is a defining enough part of him that I think should be featured some way. Though it'd be hard to strike a balance between his base speed being good because that's what he's like, without haste being ott. Maybe making it part of a final smash like the way it's in his EX Mode in Dissidia, but that'd mean losing Blitz Ace which already works as a final smash. ANother possibility could be that his speed grows the longer he's alive, displaying his growth.

well i did what i could to try and implement FFX's main mechanic into Tidus's moveset, it probably was an impossible task to begin with, and i don't expect he'd play like this at all, if he were to be added in Smash in a very distant future please Sakurai cut Cloud and add Tidus instead

i agree that his overdrives should've been in his moveset aside from his final smash, but what i tried to do with this idea was an "anime sword character"-looking dude who doesn't play as what one would guess just by looking at him. maybe it's just a dumb idea, and i'd agree with that, but this was the goal i tried to achieve

it would be cool if you created your own moveset for Tidus, so that we can compare them and maybe mix some of our ideas

that's why i specified that using Cheer or Haste negates any other character-generated buff Tidus and allies might have

ex. DQ's hero can't have both Acceleratle's speed buff and Cheer's atk and def buff

Maybe just make it a minor buff? Also, allowing him to cheer/haste his ally would be awesome! Er... i assume it would be able to?

Challenge accepted. Before I start I'll note that in English his sword is called the Brotherhood. You called in Fraternity in your moveset, which I'm guessing is what it's called in other translations as it's basically the same name.

Name: Tidus

Default outfit: His Final Fantasy X appearance

Alternate Outfits: Shuyin!, a black hair alt from the first Final Fantasy X demo, topless alt, because this is Super Smash Bros damnit!

Gimmick: Haste: Tidus's speed increases the longer he is alive. He starts out as actually a rather slow an awkward character, about on par with Shulk, but his speed raises in stages every fifteen seconds, reaching a max level after one minute without losing a stock (upon losing a stock he resets to his base speed). By which point he's more comparable to Sonic only with more range and slightly more power. Every time it goes up a stage, a red clock like animation goes over Tidus like Haste in Final Fantasy X. At the highest level, after a minute, Tidus also gets mild water hitboxes extending from his sword attacks that push back enemies he doesn't quite manage to hit. Like in Final Fantasy X, even his idle animation is sped up by this attack. I also like this gimmick, as it sort of reflects Tidus's growth as a character over the course of Final Fantasy X (and to a lesser extent his growth as a warrior, it doesn't get much focus in the, but he is notciable a novice at the start of the game unlike a lot of Final Fantasy protagonists, one reference to this in game would be how he learns his Overdrives by constantly using them).

Normals
 

Spoiler

 

Jab: A three hit combo. The first two hits are close slashes, but the third is a rush resembling the first hit of his Sonic Buster attack in DIssidia. Covers good distance, but leaves Tidus unnaturally open for a jab combo.

Side Tilt: A two hit sword combo.

Down Tilt: A slide like many characters have, seems like it'd be a natural fit for him even if I don't think he ever does anything like it. Even though he's not directly using his sword, this attack still has a water hit box at max level Haste.

Up Tilt: A rising slash attack that puts Tidus in the air slightly. If it connects with an opponent, it can be comboed into an aerial.

Dash: His standard Final Fantasy X attack.

 

Side Smash: Tidus throws a blitzball forward like he does in Dissidia (which in turn is based around Wakka's throwing animation). Not very powerful as far as Side Smashes go, but quite easy to aim and travels pretty far (for a Smash attack). If you aim downwards at the ground, the ball will ricochet and bounce upwards.

Up Smash: Tidus spiral jumps upwards and kicks a Blitz Ball. Much more powerful than his side smash, but is launched at an awkward angle that makes it hard to connect with. Opponents standing close to Tidus can be pulled up with the initial spiral jump.

Down Smash: Tidus holds a Blitzball while he charges and then punts it, similar to his normal shooting animation while playing Blitzball. Easier to hit with than his up smash, but cannot be aimed like his Side Smash. Travels the furthest of all his Smash attacks.

 

Air Attacks: Don't have the game on me right now to research and reference attacks by name, but suffice to say, most of his aerial attacks would be based on his various basic bravery attacks from Dissidia. Like Bayonetta, he will also be able to combo his neutral and side aerials, though unlike her it's just a simple two hit combo. Overall his air game is quite strong, and utilizing his swift multi hit attacks will be key to getting kills for him.

 

 


Up Throw:

Forward Throw: Tidus slashes his opponent away an then quickly throws a Blitzball at them.

Back Throw: Tidus tosses his opponent upwards and then kicks them with a backflip, like in his animation for Sphere Shot.

Down Throw: Tidus tosses his opponent downwards and impales

 

 

Specials
 

Spoiler

Neutral Special: Slowga: Tidus performs his spell casting animation from Final Fantasy X and shoots an orb of magic similar to the animation that appears over a character that has slow cast on them in Final Fantasy X. Enemies hit with this orb receive reduced movement speed which lasts an amount of time proportional to how much damage they've taken. Despite not dealing any damage, this is a very useful move for Tidus to use to set up a kill.

Side Special:Spiral Cut: Tidus performs a powerful four hit combo consisting of backflips and a final heavy hit. This attack moves Tidus quite a bit, about on par with Fox's side special (and at max level haste it isn't much slower than that attack. Once it is initiated, Tidus cannot cancel the move, leaving him quite open. If performed in the air, Tidus will move forward in the first three strikes, but the forth, heavy strike, he will slam down from the air like Ike's aether. This is a pretty unconventional trajectory for an attack that could surprise opponents.

Up Special: Energy Rain: Tidus kicks forward, if he connects with an opponent, he will leap away and shoot a rain of energy at his opponent. Technically it is a grab move. As a recovery, it works most like Ganondorf's Dark Dive. Even though Tidus has strong air game, this is not a strong recovery. Unlike Dark Dive, however, Tidus can use this attack to leap off the stage. If successfully performed on the stage, there will not be a follow up energy wave unless you hold the button. If performed on an enemy, TIdus can use the attack again, but not if it is performed on the stage.

Down Special: Evade and Counter: Tidus performs a back hop similar to Bayonetta's Witch Time. If enemies attacked Tidus while he'd dodging, he will automatically counter attack with his sword.

Final Smash: Blitz Ace: One of those final smashes that brings the enemy to a new area and has him do the animation. Flashy, but not all that exciting as an actual attack.

 

To sum up, a gimmick that makes him more powerful via his speed the longer he is alive, with the max level giving him an extra water pushing effect on his sword attacks. Smashes that involve throwing a blitzball that aren't powerful, but are effective for spacing. Multi hit aerial moves. Specials that are based on his Overdrives, plus Slowga to slow enemies down and a counter (couldn't think of any way to implement Hit and Run given it's just a bunch of generic attacks). His weaknesses involve a not great vertical recovery, despite having powerful air game that encourages him to get off the stage, and a bit slow without the power to back it up at the start of a match. To play Tidus, a character needs to know what they're doing and survive his lower haste levels, while still be experienced enough with him to make use of the added speed and power at his higher levels.
