Never Forget: Smash or Die! Turrican Support Thread

Who is Turrican?
Turrican is an old-school series of shoot-em-up platforming games starring the titular Turrican, originally released on the Commodore 64 in 1990, and later on many other platforms, like the Game Boy, and many home computers like the Amiga, ZX Spectrum, Amstrad CPC and Atari ST.
The first game would prove to be a big success, spawning sequels including games for the SNES and Mega Drive/Genesis.
The series is bondly remembered by many people who played it, specially by British and European players. From the gameplay to its high quality soundtrack, it's surely one of the best and most memorable series on home computers in the 90s.

How would he work in Smash?
Of all the old home computer characters I could think of, Turrican (or also known as Bren McGuire to some people) is the character I think has the most potential for a cool moveset. He has decades long worth of legacy to back him up.
There's of course bombs and grenades, but we also have a spiky morph ball like ability, gliding, a shooting line laser, a surround flash attack, a 3 weapon system that lets him change between 3 different weapon types, and a shield among other super-powered metalic dude type of powers.

What do you think? Would you mind seeing an old home computer rep like Turrican in Smash Bros?
