Resubmitting Guy Spelunky and the City of Gold from the very first DLC job.
Job 188-1: Guy Spelunky (Spelunky)
I already submitted this dapper fellow for the roguelike character job ages ago, but here's hoping second time will be the charm!
Guy Spelunky is the eponymous protagonist of the original Spelunky game (and the sequel, although he's no longer a main protagonist in that game, passing down the role to his daughter Ana). Heading into an ancient cave system in search of treasure, he finds monsters, underground shops, and immortality... somehow.
Spelunky was one of the first indie games I ever loved - Back before FNaF, Undertale, and You-Know-Who, this was the game I spent a ton of time watching on YouTube and reading up about. (Well, that and Minecraft.) I think you could make a fun moveset for Guy given the plethora of weapons and tools he uses in his home games. Plus, the ensemble cast of the series could make for fun alternate costumes!
Job 188-2: City of Gold (Spelunky 2)
The City of Gold would feature a randomly-generated layout, featuring a few platforms and hazards such as Mummies and arrow traps. Once the match nears its end, the Ghost would be released, serving as a very dangerous enemy who would deal insane damage and knockback upon contact.
