Assist Character: Rock ‘Em Sock ‘Em Robots
5EBEF727-E974-49A8-A211-F6D327FF3FE9.png

For a short amount of time, the stage floor will turn into a boxing ring and the robots will spawn in to fight. The robots will zoom towards one other and begin to punch each other. They will move from side to side randomly, depending on who is landing the punches. You will get hurt if you ever enter their crossfire. When their time is up, one of them will get their head launched off and they both disappear. If you are standing on top of one of their heads and that happens, you will almost certainly be a goner.

DVD Video Screensaver

For this stage, you fight on the DVD Video Screensaver logo. Fighters are shrunken down to fit on the logo. The logo will bounce all around the wall of the screen, however it will never perfectly hit the corners of the wall. The fighters and the stage would basically be floating in a void of darkness.

Submit a stage from an unrepresented series.
Stage Name: The Rooftop
Stage Series: The Room




Originating from celebrated director Tommy Wiseau's beloved 2003 hit The Room, it's time for arguably the most pointless CGI shot in history to make the stage (ha, get it?) for this role. Fighters will fight atop, well, the rooftop - on which they'll find the stairway that Wiseau himself will sometimes storm out of in a rage, stating the same quotes over and over again. He'll speak to Mark too, and they'll perfectly recreate the scene, over and over, forever locked in a state of torment as they endlessly repeat arguably their biggest failings. As a bonus, digitally added into the shot is a perfect recreation of Wiseau's single massive billboard, which famously stood in Hollywood for no less than 5 years with people having absolutely no idea what the movie was about (many believing it to be a horror flick, and it becoming a minor attraction in the area.)

But why The Room? Well, it seems like an obvious fit for a game with this sort of modus operandi, but I can't imagine Wiseau's character (Johnny) having enough to throw hands without making it look like a half-baked Smash Bros LAWL moveset. Likewise, The Room isn't exactly well-known for its soundtrack in terms of having specific, individual songs to represent it as a whole (though has enough of a soundtrack to warrant a stage - I'll get to that!) Of course, this leaves a stage as a wonderful way to represent the travesty that this movie is, because its place in both meme culture and the hearts of those that have watched it is truly unforgettable. It seems like a genuinely perfect pick!

Oh, the soundtrack. Well, you're in for a treat, as all 29 of the tracks in The Room's OST are making it in, which you can listen to in this playlist. Even if very few of them (if any) are particularly fitting for a fighting game, it makes the awkward and slightly weird inclusion of this in anything, ever, even more befitting as a means of representing both itself and the nature of this game. (If any, I suggest Happy Birthday Johnny.)

The idea of characters like Santa, Ronald McDonald and SiivaGunner fighting to the death whilst Tommy Wiseau and an intensely disinterested Greg Sestero have arguably one of the most awkward interactions ever behind them is just too funny not to see.

Paul Bunyan comes from folklore. He’s a big lumberjack with an axe and a blue ox named Babe, and, legendarily, is responsible for the formations of a few natural landmarks, such as the Grand Canyon and several lakes and rivers.

Thor
Not the pretty boy australian version from a certain massive film franchise, nor the conics its based on. But rather the version from norse myth. He's make heavy use of lightning and his hammer.

Character Name: Nikola Tesla.
Character Origin: Fictionalised History


1648826976966.png


I'm dead serious. Essentially, the concept for this is a loosely steampunk-inspired mecha, piloted by celebrated mechanical engineer Nikola Tesla. His most prominent attacks, aside from basic punches and the like, utilise a large Tesla Coil as well as his mech's control over electricity! The mecha looks a little different to the one in the image, of course, more similar to a sort of combination between that and an Iron Man suit - with Tesla being a relatively slow, but heavy-hitting character!

I think that the sheer absurdity of recontextualising Tesla as a Tony Stark-type almost superhero from the Victorian era, somewhat inspired by concepts seen in media like The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, would make him a really fun inclusion - plus, you could not only go for a really fun steampunk look, but also actually educate the kids playing this on some history in the process! Seeing that sort of 1890s-era science fiction look would be very unique in a fighting game.

Doorbell (Home)
E47C2ADF-7CD4-42FE-A145-2A8A89F48A59.png

The Doorbell would have two different variations, broken and normal. The Doorbells can only be used once and will disappear when activated. The majority of Doorbells will be broken and won’t be able to do anything. The normal Doorbell however will activate a sound effect of a realistic knocking noise (10 seconds after activation). The normal Doorbell would be so rare that there is only a very small chance you could get it over a broken one (1 in a 1831 chance). There have been items to use against fighters in platform fighters, but not so much for the players themselves.

Easy Button

This piece of marketing that I was obsessed with when I was young for some reason has a somewhat unique entry. It would slowly float down from the sky while emitting light. This isn't related to anything it actually does, it just serves the balance. Because when pressed, it would greatly damage and knock back all fighters except for the user and any teammates. If a K.O. happens because of this, it emits a "that was easy." sound effect.

Because of the low amount of submissions, the submission period will be extended until 10 AM tomorrow.

Aw dang, Romeo wasn't included in the last vote and I wasn't here in time to catch it. But it's all good I suppose.
Dueling Pistol (Hamilton)

Works like a Ray Gun, but more powerful. The main drawback is that the bullet reflects off of the backs of any fighters - you'll need your opponent facing you to clear, fair shot in.
