The Beheaded is the star of Dead Cells, a blistering roguelite-metroidvania action platformer. Taking place on an island ravaged by a mysterious disease known as the Malaise, the Beheaded must hack and slash his way to the castle, slay the king, and discover the secrets of the island. Win or die, you'll just respawn at the start, with a new difficulty unlocked. Learn from your past experiences and try, try again.
Dead Cells is a solid game with tough, fluid action and loads of options. Tired of the stinking sewers? Take the Ramparts instead! Want some more protection? Trade out your bow for a shield! Each run only takes about an hour, so if you die, just get back up and go for another round! Despite the short length of each run, Dead Cells is a game that will keep you coming back for more. Sure, Ol' Headless has very slim chances of getting into Smash, but I'll be darned if he wouldn't be fun!
The Beheaded himself would most likely be a speedy, versatile glass cannon fighter. Dead Cells' huge amount of weapons would give him tools for just about every situation, but he'd be hindered by his light weight and lack of defensive skills. If we're going all in for references, he could have a gimmick where he changes his specials every time he dies, so that every game with him is fun and unique.
