Resubmitting Gon
Job 10: Gon Freecss
1637259561926.png

Gon is the protagonist of Hunter x Hunter, one of Shonen Jump's darkest series and in this day and age one of its most popular thanks to the stellar 2011 anime adaptation. Gon is a 12 year old boy who strives to become a Hunter in order to find his father, another famous Hunter, and along the way meets many friends and foes, some of which eventually push him to his breaking point.

Gon is an extremely popular character due to being a unique twist on the Shonen protagonist trope and is a staple of Jump crossover fighters, not missing out on a single one since Jump Super Stars. With HxH's mainstream popularity it would make a lot of sense to include him in a game that's all about anime characters duking it out.

He would utilize Nen abilities such as Jajanken like in his home series.

Shinji Ikari

The main character of Ginax and Hideaki Anno's influenceual mecha series Neon Genesis Evangelion. A young man is who is called by the paramilitary organization NERV to pilot a machine known as an Evangelion to protect the city of Tokyo-3 from the Angels, strange creatures who seek to destroy the world. EVA is hugely influenceual and also has a wide array of spin off material and merchandise, including video games. Shinji's moveset would rely almost entirely on using Unit 1, and he could have skins of Asuka, Rei and Kaworu.

Most of this is copy pasted for a write up I did for another thread. Might submit Jump later.

Job #25: 90's Characters (guess "24" was for costumes)

Yugi Muto (Yu-Gi-Oh - 1996)


I'm letting these two posts from other threads explain this part.

Yugi Muto is the main protagonist of the popular Yu-Gi-Oh! series, acting as the King of Games who's nearly perfect at whatever he's playing and his Yami self being a spirit that lives in the Millennium Puzzle that is just Yugi but cooler (not really but I'm just shortening it, you just need to know Yami is living inside Yugi, they swap control from time to time, and they are great at Duel Monsters).

Reasons to consider adding the two is that Yu-Gi-Oh! is a popular series all around, Yugi specifically has many of the most popular duel monsters in his deck (Kuriboh, Dark Magician, and Dark Magician Girl), having the King of Games in the biggest crossover game sounds legendary, and they could be a very unique fighter with trunk loads of moveset potential. Speaking of moveset potential, the only weakness is that maybe his moveset could be complicated but it could be simplified like Jump Force to where Yugi just uses Duel Monsters because why not.
In Jump Ultimate Stars, and other spin-offs like Jump Force, Yugi fought by summoning various monsters throughout the series to do the fighting for him, along with using spell cards and activating trap cards. I don't see why that wouldn't be the same here; the guy's not much of a fist fighter. (he also summoned a Tamagotchi-like capsule monster and rolled a giant pair of dice to reference pre-card game arcs from the series - yes, there's more to the series than children's card games that everyone treats with life-or-death seriousness)

Yami Yugi, or Dark Yugi, is the spirit of an Egyptian pharaoh possessing the body of a Japanese teenager. When the series began, he subjected criminals and other wrong-doers to sadistic and ironic penalty games, though this dropped off as the series went on. Despite the series finishing in 2004, it has a ton of anime and manga spin-offs, along with a popular card game that (to my knowledge) is still running. He's not exactly a traditional fighting game character, but that could arguably make him more interesting.
Alita (Battle Angel Alita - 1990)



Alita (also named "Gally" in the original Japanese version) is the titular protagonist of the eponymous Japanese cyberpunk manga franchise (originally known as Gunnm), created by Yukito Kishiro and originally published for Shueisha's Business Jump magazine in 1990, though it's currently owned by Kodansha since 2011, having released various sequels and spin-offs such as Last Order, Mars Chronicle and Ashen Victor, even getting film adaptations like Hiroshi Fukutomi's OVA "Battle Angel" in 1993 and an American live-action movie produced by Avatar's James Cameron himself for 20th Century Fox in 2019 (I highly recommend to watch it, even better than Ghost in the Shell).

The story focuses on Alita, a female cyborg who has lost all memories of her past (as a Martian cyborg named Yoko) and is found in the Scrapyard by a cybernetics doctor Daisuke Ido, who re-built and took care of her, naming her after his recently deceased cat. She is the practitioner of the legendary cyborg martial art Panzer Kunst, which leads to her becoming a Hunter Warrior with her Berserker Body, attempting to rediscover her mysterious past and characters whose lives she impacts on her journey,

For her moveset/playstyle, Alita is capable of performing quick and agile, yet powerful attacks thanks to her usage of Panzer Kunst martial arts, skills at Motorball racing sports and her signature weapon, the Damascus Blade. She can use multiple techniques such as Plasma Jet (a dashing plasma-empowered punch), Kumai Sharin Kyaku (a rising handstand/dive kick), Elbogen Blatt (dual forearm blades), explosive Shaped Charge Kick and Palm, Astral Decoys, Hertza Haeon (a poweful palm strike that sends out a high-frequency vibration through the body, delaing massive damage), etc.

Job #26: Movesets

Most of Ryotsu's moves involve him using his pistol (even being able to crawl and shoot while doing so), kicking a tin can or his sandal as projectiles, throwing play cards onto the ground, swinging newspapers or Japanese signs like a bat, spraying a fire extinguisher, etc., much like how he fights in Jump crossovers.
  • Neutral Special: Rocket Launcher - Ryotsu pulls out a rocket launcher out of nowhere and then aims it in-front of him, firing a missile which flies forward before it explodes once it hits an opponent or a wall. Holding the button will make Ryotsu use the firework launcher instead, which makes a projectile fly much faster and do more damage.
  • Side Special: Bicycle Ride - Ryotsu summons his bicycle as he gets on it and starts to ride forward, running over opponents. He can skid to turn around and damage anyone close by, even being able to jump off of it. It basically functions similarly to Wario's bike in Smash, except that it's lighter and a bit faster.
  • Up Special: Helicopter Assault - The move works differently depending on if Ryotsu performs it on the ground or in the air.
    • Ground: Ryotsu pulls out a toy package and starts building a machine gun-armed RC helicopter that will follow him around for a short period of time, shooting opponents whenever he's close to them, acting pretty much like a flying turret akin to Ratchet's Up Circle (Mr. Zurkon) in PlayStation All-Stars.
    • Air: If used in the air, a RC helicopter will appear above Ryotsu as he holds it with both hands and vertically flies into the air before dropping off onto the ground when reaching it's apex distance. Tapping the attack button will make a helicopter fire bullets forward while rising.
  • Down Special: Spin Top Maestro - Ryotsu quickly tosses a small spinning top diagonally downwards onto the ground, as it spins forward like Terry's grounded Power Wave. It's weaker than a rocket launcher, but moves more faster and hits multiple times. Based on one of his past-time hobbies, how he used it to cut an out-of-reach bomb wire in the first theatrical film and utilized as an attack in both Jump fighting games.
  • Ultimate 1: Emergency Attack! Katsushika Tank Team - A military tank drops down as Ryotsu jumps into it and then points forward while shouting "Get out of the way! Fire!", shooting out a quick cannon shell that flies a long distance and then immediately blows up with a large explosion, which does high damage and knockback. Based on one of his Super Attacks in Jump Super/Ultimate Stars.
  • Ultimate 2: Section Chief's Wrath - Daijiro Ohara, Ryotsu's superior and the Section Chief of Kameari Police Box, appears in the background in anger as Ryotsu fearfully looks at him and then cowers down as Ohara yells "You idiot!" with giant stone Japanese letters that read "ぱっかもーん !!" (roughly translated to "Baka mon!") dropping down around Ryotsu, crushing opponents close to him. This move is based on Ryotsu's Victory Burst in J-Stars Victory VS and functions partially similar to Phoenix Wright's "Order in the Court!" Hyper Combo in Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3.
  • Super Ultimate: Rocket Takedown - Ryotsu shouts "I'm not going to put up with this any longer!" as he pulls out his handgun and then fires forward. If opponents are hit, a rocket will suddenly rush into the stage and take both them & Ryotsu as it goes across the street, crashing into obstacles with opponents taking most of the damage. Ryotsu then brings the rocket up into the air, out of range and re-connects the wire and jumps off. Opponents notice the timer at it's last three seconds, in which they can only widen their eyes in shock before a rocket explodes, finishing them off as Ryotsu watches the explosion while floating down with a parachute. This Super Ultimate is based on the climax scene of KochiKame: The Movie.
  • Neutral Special: Moon Twilight Flash - Usagi starts to charge up as she performs a pose while her tiara's red gemstone glows up. When fully charged and the button is released after being held, Usagi will yell out "Moon Twilight Flash!" and unleash a light beam from her tiara's gemstone forward in-front of her, which works like R.O.B.'s Neutral Special, Robo Beam.
  • Side Special: Moon Tiara Action - Usagi picks her tiara and then tosses it forward, turning into a energy disk projectile as it flies in an arc at a decently rapid pace and then comes back like a boomerang akin to Link and King K. Rool's Side Specials. When it hits an opponent, they will be trapped in a halo of light which binds them for 2 seconds.
  • Up Special: Sailor Planet Attack - Usagi starts concentrating as she spins around, encasing herself into a energy bubble as it floats into the air with a halo of light covering it. She will then turn pink and boost herself vertically upwards into the air, with a move's distance depending on charge akin to Hero's Woosh. Much like Sonic's Homing Attack, if Usagi is close to the nearest opponent, she will instead ram into them and cause an explosion.
  • Down Special: Sonic Cry - Usagi kneels down as she bends her head down and then starts crying in despair, releasing a sphere of supersonic waves around herself by the sound of her voice, out of her odango covers. Can push/damage opponents away with low knockback and even reflect projectiles.
  • Ultimate 1: Moon Spiral Heart Attack - Usagi raises the Spiral Heart Moon Rod into the air and then flips it around her body as she rapidly spins in-place, before stopping and holding it up again, starting to send out powerful pink heart blasts around herself in a omnidirectional death blossom attack, which does tremendous damage to opponents.
  • Ultimate 2: Moon Gorgeous Meditation - Usagi pulls out her Moon Rod and aims it forward as she shouts "Moon Gorgeous Meditation!", unleashing an array of spiraling glass shard-like rainbow light projectiles forward in-front of her that she can angle diagonally upwards or downwards and even trap opponents as it hits them rapidly. Works similarly to Mario's Mario Finale (blast/projectile) and Samus' Zero Laser (angling).
  • Super Ultimate: Starlight Honeymoon Therapy Kiss - Usagi summons her Moon Stick and starts to spin around, summoning a large spiral of light around herself with Moon Healing Escalation. If she catches anyone, Usagi will show the Silver Crystal as it unfolds like a flower and summons the rest of the Inner and Outer Senshi with their own Moon Sticks, thus making her transform into Princess Serenity. They will then attack opponents in a unison attack with their respective moves (Mercury's Shine Aqua Illusion, Mars' Burning Mandala, Jupiter's Sparkling Wide Pressure, Venus' Love and Beauty Shock, Chibi Moon's Pink Sugar Heartache, Pluto's Dead Scream, Uranus' World Shaking, Neptune's Deep Submerge and Saturn's Silence Glaive Surprise) and Usagi finally finishes with Starlight Honeymoon Therapy Kiss, blasting opponents far away.
