Megaman, of course. Jumping and shooting is all she does outside of her switch helmet, to the point of near parody in Officer mode's tutorial ("Only jumping and shooting for me"). Also an allergy to spikes.
Fair enough, (also the whole android thing supports that as well)

And I think it’s fair to say :ultolimar: for Luna from Mighty Milky Way though I’m still trying to figure out who Alta from Mighty Flip Champs would be.

For Today, I will put the first piece of the Lifelight song to show the place of where we are on the countdown.

Colors weave into a spire of flame
Distant sparks call to a past still unnamed
Bear this torch against the cold of the night
Search your soul and reawaken the undying light


On that day, when the sky fell away
Our world came to an end
In our eyes did a fading sun rise
In the dark, glimmering shadows
Silence grows, in the spaces between
Stretching out beyond time
Rising up, as a chorus of souls finds a voice
Flickering through the void
These little sparks cling on to life
Everyone caught in the struggle
And then the storms of change, they fan the flames
Scattering ashes to the wind

Every soul contains a whisper of light
Gleaming faintly as it dwindles from sight
No escape, no greater fate to be made
In the end, the chains of time will not break

Colors weave into a spire of flame
Distant sparks call to a past still unnamed
Bear this torch against the cold of the night
Search your soul and reawaken the undying light

Tomorrow will be another piece of the lyrics.

This started going through my mind at work, so here’s my idea for a Palutena’s Guidance for Shantae, portraits and all:

7AD55A2C-68AD-4C53-A23D-944E601FE7EA.png Woah, look at the size of her ponytail! How can she fight carrying that thing around?
E5AD4F52-A82B-4AC2-8A6E-AEBBBCD4194C.png Please, it’s not that impressive.

DEC71D7C-06B2-4EC9-AAED-C1360082FBF0.png Actually that’s what she mainly uses to fight with, Pit.

E0BCA02A-6713-4B22-B163-C1AA3F0FE6CA.png Say hello to Shantae, the Guardian Genie of Scuttle Town, well Half-Genie to be precise. She can whip her hair to attack her foes and she can transform into different animals by channeling her genie powers through belly-dancing.

C7AF8467-B665-4956-8F63-292E7038E773.png Man that’s gotta put a lot of strain on your neck.
02A34731-9BC5-42E1-BB5F-F453A89BBA51.png So if she’s a Half-Genie, would she still be able to do the whole three wishes thing or can she only grant one and a half?

354AF22A-63ED-4468-8C0E-5DE0E39B6E49.png How on earth do you grant half a wish?

6A99812B-9AA4-4681-B460-F29BF3BB69E1.png I mean I’m more of a town-guarding genie than a wish-granting one, but yeah I don’t think that’s how that works.

C7AF8467-B665-4956-8F63-292E7038E773.png I guess that’s makes sens-
D589A800-1A76-4AA8-9D45-3436AFB4F03F.png Wait, what?!

DEC71D7C-06B2-4EC9-AAED-C1360082FBF0.png I had a feeling you’d join in, Shantae.


A4FD708F-7A0B-4388-9E68-F8CC5023CC12.png I’m honored to be here with all of you.

752CA0F0-09A7-4197-81ED-338EDE88782C.png But I’ll have you know that this monster-whipper has whipped many monsters along with pirates, pirate ships, squids, cyclopses, ghosts, my own genie magic turned evil, gators, doomsday machines...

354AF22A-63ED-4468-8C0E-5DE0E39B6E49.png innocent dogs...

36B0BEE3-F059-4903-B3F4-F06B33AA0A43.png You can’t prove that.
50E3EC5A-8DA5-4BC4-BB26-A41F2A5A6F13.png Oh right, sorry about that Shantae, you kinda surprised me. The other fighters around here aren’t really that talkative.

6A99812B-9AA4-4681-B460-F29BF3BB69E1.png Pit, right? Yeah I noticed that too. It’s a little weird actually, I banter with my foes all the time back home, well the ones that can talk anyway.

EED8A4BF-917F-4FA7-B3FC-C3B8EFDECBB4.png Same here. It’s pretty fun, isn’t it?

A4FD708F-7A0B-4388-9E68-F8CC5023CC12.png Right? My arch-enemy Risky Boots and the Barons of Sequin Land are so fun to bounce off of.

EED8A4BF-917F-4FA7-B3FC-C3B8EFDECBB4.png Oh man you should meet my rogues gallery, we can go on for hours back and forth.

C17F0AE5-5C11-42EC-9F7C-B91B9FBCD393.png I’m glad to see you’re making new friends Pit, but need I remind you two that you’re in the middle of a battle.

C7AF8467-B665-4956-8F63-292E7038E773.png Oh. Right. 6A99812B-9AA4-4681-B460-F29BF3BB69E1.png

24D27F10-70F1-409A-9BC4-C8B5449846F4.png
She has a lot of abilities at her disposal. Her attacks are powerful and flashy but they leave her wide open, that’ll be the perfect opportunity to strike!


7B9D5D98-E8D6-4A0D-A526-672FB6067754.png Hey! You know I’m still here!

5705349A-6D9E-448B-8B0D-5E8F300B0878.png “Daughter of the Genies! Your powers are no match for the goddess of light and as her servant, it’s time for you to atone for your crimes! You’re finished!!”

752CA0F0-09A7-4197-81ED-338EDE88782C.png “Don’t underestimate my power, Servant of the Gods! You’ll be sorry you crossed me once you get a taste of my Silky Split-Ends of Justice! Face my fury!!”

A4FD708F-7A0B-4388-9E68-F8CC5023CC12.png Ha, ha, ha, ha 50E3EC5A-8DA5-4BC4-BB26-A41F2A5A6F13.png

354AF22A-63ED-4468-8C0E-5DE0E39B6E49.png Oh brother.

C17F0AE5-5C11-42EC-9F7C-B91B9FBCD393.png This should be interesting.

This is good, but I have a few issues with it.

- Shantae doesn't speak with her rogues gallery in the middle of a fight. Not to say I object to Shantae speaking at all here, it's just not quite the same as Uprising.

- No mortal is supposed to be able to hear the goddesses speaking. They only hear Pit's side as seen with Magnus, or in Smash when they're on the sidelines and presumably in the same physical location as the goddesses. Now, being a half-genie could let her somewhat hear the goddesses talking, so I think the better icebreaker here would be loudly asking who Pit is talking to and where the voices are coming from. At that point the goddesses ''open the channel'' so to speak.

- Given the things Shantae transforms into, you'd think Viridi would go a little more in-depth on them, being that nature and animals are her field of expertise.

- And personally, I'd like to hear more about their shared interests in hot baths and eating.

- And personally, I'd like to hear more about their shared interests in hot baths and eating.

-I guess I was thinking in the context that this would be towards the start of a battle.

-I’m aware of that and that was kinda what I was going for with her genie powers allowing her to hear the goddesses, well that or her fourth-wall breaking powers. Besides if Chrom could butt in last game, I don’t see why Shantae couldn’t.

-Yeah I could see her doing that too, I just didn’t think of it at the time.

-Actually I wanted to add this little except as well at the end:

0CE016A0-C49A-48BA-94AA-72299A966354.png After this, you wanna come visit Scuttle Town? I know it’s not much but we have this great bath house we could heal up at after the battle...

64DC1978-3404-4997-B13A-5F4932B091B2.png Like an indoor hot spring? Shantae, you know the way into an angel’s heart!

But I figured this was going on a bit too long already, and might’ve pushed the ship bait a bit too much.

Rotty should've shown up... but otherwise, it's okay.
I figured as much, alright here:

E24676A6-F9BC-4EA2-B2B1-EEDFCB483367.png Hey Shantae, who’s your new friend?

C0242442-3135-44E1-8340-98215FB957B3.png Um, hello. Where did you come from?

026E86E6-F7F2-4A81-8189-FF6FA3DF9CCF.png Rottytops, be nice to Pit. He’s an angel and we’re on their turf right now, so behave yourself.

E24676A6-F9BC-4EA2-B2B1-EEDFCB483367.png Come on, I want in on the fun too.


946849AA-A09C-456B-9297-4AE9FCF09768.png Ooh, I wonder what angel brains would taste like?

E064C12E-AAC3-48F1-9F76-8CFD02A6555B.png Wait, what?!

A sad, sad place... may I have hugs? :3 <3
-Actually I wanted to add this little except as well at the end:

After this, you wanna come visit Scuttle Town? I know it’s not much but we have this great bath house we could heal up at after the battle...

Like an indoor hot spring? Shantae, you know the way into an angel’s heart!
Nope, I do not like where this is going... not one bit.
I figured as much, alright here:

Hey Shantae, who’s your new friend?

Um, hello. Where did you come from?

Rottytops, be nice to Pit. He’s an angel and we’re on their turf right now, so behave yourself.

Come on, I want in on the fun too.


Ooh, I wonder what angel brains would taste like?

Wait, what?!

Rottytops! That’s the exact opposite of behaving yourself!

Tee-hee!

Geez, why does it feel like everything wants to eat me?

Cute. :)

Though, if the prior dialogue, was any indication, I'd say Pit, is another person, who'd like to "eat" Shantae, too. ; )

-I guess I was thinking in the context that this would be towards the start of a battle.

-I’m aware of that and that was kinda what I was going for with her genie powers allowing her to hear the goddesses, well that or her fourth-wall breaking powers. Besides if Chrom could butt in last game, I don’t see why Shantae couldn’t.

-Yeah I could see her doing that too, I just didn’t think of it at the time.

But I figured this was going on a bit too long already, and might’ve pushed the ship bait a bit too much.

Chrom could butt in because he was sitting on the sidelines waiting for Robin to get a Smash Ball, presumably it was the same place the goddesses were watching. Shantae is on the battlefield and thus shouldn't be able to hear the telepathic conversation normally. I see it more as the goddesses themselves being surprised at seeing her react to what they say.

I could also see an alternative guidance with Rottytops doing the exposition if you don't abide by the genie divinity theory. She does have a knack for sneaking into places she shouldn't be in after all.

Also, if you're scared of bathing shipping... just disallow mixed bathing and turn it into a conflict of who gets to go first.

I’m a little surprised you’re acting that way considering it’s not Rotty involved there.

Also no, just no. Pit’s excited about the bath house AND NOTHING ELSE...

I feel like if there was any fighter that could converse with the Uprising crew (Bayonetta doesn’t have character portraits) it’d be Shantae. And I feel like in a game where Pit was about to check Isabelle’s collar but admits in his Star KO that he can’t read or where Chrom can be a fighter AND Final Smash, this doesn’t seem like it’d be that unreasonable.

Not a fan of the How to Play remix tbh. It sounds like they tried to force the idea of making it sound more "intense" or "epic", and overall I don't think it delivers on that front. The choir just doesn't fit imo.

Kinda why I omitted it to begin with, I wouldn’t mind referencing the whole hot spring/bath house thing, but yeah just trying to find a way to make it sound natural/appropriate.

To be fair though, both of them go in fully dressed anyway.

If this has anything to do with Smash, I'd think it's to commemorate her being a spirit. :)

Honestly, I was hoping for Pit to let it slip that he's developing a crush on Shantae, with Viridi (realizing Pit is into some girl who physically looks as old as him) yelling at Pit to take her down immediately, and Palutena would tease her over it.

So I don’t know if you saw the new Palutena’s Guidance they did for Zelda since she has a new design, Pit is smitten by her and Viridi is the one to tease him about it. So I could see her being the one teasing Pit and Shantae as well:

(After Palutena reminds them they’re in the middle of a battle)

EB60F246-EB91-4369-8439-2033ECAA1356.png Oh leave them be Palutena, can’t you see that love is blooming on the battlefield?

25086882-2B06-4F2F-A7FE-6FB328AB3F21.png Hey! It’s not like that! CF9E48A1-BFFA-42E3-B72B-25841263A36D.png

68C8FAD3-B9BC-4376-A952-6B868B7A2AD5.png You do realize the match won’t end until one of them is defeated, right?

1DB00744-A155-4056-AA18-5F302E6CDFC3.png Fair point.

Also I just realized Pit and Shantae are doing the exact same pose and I think it’d make that scene even cuter

This started going through my mind at work, so here’s my idea for a Palutena’s Guidance for Shantae, portraits and all:

View attachment 181512 Woah, look at the size of her ponytail! How can she fight carrying that thing around?
View attachment 181524 Please, it’s not that impressive.

View attachment 181510 Actually that’s what she mainly uses to fight with, Pit.

View attachment 181513 Say hello to Shantae, the Guardian Genie of Scuttle Town, well Half-Genie to be precise. She can whip her hair to attack her foes and she can transform into different animals by channeling her genie powers through belly-dancing.

View attachment 181514 Man that’s gotta put a lot of strain on your neck.
View attachment 181528 So if she’s a Half-Genie, would she still be able to do the whole three wishes thing or can she only grant one and a half?

View attachment 181505 How on earth do you grant half a wish?

View attachment 181515 I mean I’m more of a town-guarding genie than a wish-granting one, but yeah I don’t think that’s how that works.

View attachment 181514 I guess that’s makes sens-
View attachment 181536 Wait, what?!

View attachment 181510 I had a feeling you’d join in, Shantae.


View attachment 181540 I’m honored to be here with all of you.

View attachment 181507 But I’ll have you know that this monster-whipper has whipped many monsters along with pirates, pirate ships, squids, cyclopses, ghosts, my own genie magic turned evil, gators, doomsday machines...

View attachment 181505 innocent dogs...

View attachment 181504 You can’t prove that.
View attachment 181517 Oh right, sorry about that Shantae, you kinda surprised me. The other fighters around here aren’t really that talkative.

View attachment 181515 Pit, right? Yeah I noticed that too. It’s a little weird actually, I banter with my foes all the time back home, well the ones that can talk anyway.

View attachment 181518 Same here. It’s pretty fun, isn’t it?

View attachment 181540 Right? My arch-enemy Risky Boots and the Barons of Sequin Land are so fun to bounce off of.

View attachment 181518 Oh man you should meet my rogues gallery, we can go on for hours back and forth.

View attachment 181511 I’m glad to see you’re making new friends Pit, but need I remind you two that you’re in the middle of a battle.

View attachment 181514 Oh. Right. View attachment 181515

View attachment 181521
She has a lot of abilities at her disposal. Her attacks are powerful and flashy but they leave her wide open, that’ll be the perfect opportunity to strike!


View attachment 181555 Hey! You know I’m still here!

View attachment 181547 “Daughter of the Genies! Your powers are no match for the goddess of light and as her servant, it’s time for you to atone for your crimes! You’re finished!!”

View attachment 181507 “Don’t underestimate my power, Servant of the Gods! You’ll be sorry you crossed me once you get a taste of my Silky Split-Ends of Justice! Face my fury!!”

View attachment 181540 Ha, ha, ha, ha View attachment 181517

View attachment 181505 Oh brother.

View attachment 181511 This should be interesting.
That's an amazing Palutena Guidance, and I love the other extra parts of it too. I really hope they do detailed guidance's for each of the DLC characters

Second piece for lifelight's lyrics out of three verses.

As fate spins a thread without end
New life draws its first breath
Blossoming in a soil reclaimed from the past
Where destiny holds fast
Here where we stand, hand clenched in hand
Everyone caught in the struggle
This is the day we finally find our way
Stepping into our tomorrow

Every soul contains a whisper of light
Growing louder as it calls to unite
From the distance sings a chorus of souls
Rising slowly, stirring heat from the coals

Colors weave into a spire of flame
Distant sparks call to a past still unnamed
Bear this torch against the cold of the night
Light will guide you on your way to the ultimate fight

Seriously, I hope he got to interact with the KI crew at all...

It may just be a coincidence regardless, so let's keep expectations in check.

Speaking of which, Battle Princess Madelyn got delayed for a week when it was supposed to release on the day of the VGAs, in hindsight it would've been lost in the hype, so that's fortunate timing.
