Boy, I really need to catch up on this whole Meet the Fighters video script thing, so here's mine for Hacker!


PBS Kids: Brawltime! Meet the Fighters: Introducing Hacker!

The PBS Kids: Brawltime! logo pops up with the 12 characters so far revealed on it.

It now cuts to gameplay footage of Hacker and Digit idling on the Cyberspace stage.


Hello everyone, and welcome to the PBS Kids: Brawltime! Meet the Fighters videos. In this series, we will be covering all the fighters in this game, talking about their moveset, stage, their history as well as other content about the character. Today, we have the malware overlord bent on ultimate domination over Cyberspace, Hacker!

Cuts to footage of Hacker gameplay while narrator explains Hacker's play style.

Hacker is a heavyweight character who has genuinely good jump, but sluggish acceleration in terms of his dashing and walking. He also tends to have a little endlag at the end of most of his attacks. Many of Hacker's attacks are designed in a way that he is using program-hacking skills to give him more powerful-style attacks, because he is doing what he thinks will make the best out of him. Aesthetically, many of Hacker's attacks are covered in a green binary code-flare. On a technical level, although Hacker's attack may be slightly slow, they have serious launching power.

Cuts to footage of Cyberchase with Hacker in them.

Hacker was originally created by Dr. Marbles as an assistant to Motherboard, but then something went wrong, Hacker rebelled and was exiled to the Northern Frontier. While his evil plans are almost thwarted by Digit and the three kids, he has shown signs a few times of a good side, which really do trace back to his origins to his original purpose.

It now cuts back again to gameplay footage of Hacker and Digit idling on the Cyberspace stage.

But all that doesn't really matter, let's check out his moveset featuring some nefarious moves!

His Light Neutral is "Hack".

Hacker does the move.

Hacker throws 2 punches (so long as the button is pressed rapidly, otherwise, he just throws a single punch), both with slight endlag, but have pretty strong knockback. Strong variant has Hacker preform a strong shoulder bash.

His Light Up is "Trojan Uppercut".

Hacker does the move.

Hacker preforms a leaping uppercut. Strong variant has him doing a stronger uppercut.

His Light Down is "Virus Booster"

Hacker does the move.

Hacker performs a hack eruption, which two pillars of binary code flare bursts on both sides of him. Has slight startlag and endlag. Strong variant creates bigger and stronger pillars.

We have covered all of Hacker's light moves. Now, onward to his specials.

His Neutral Special is "Punch Hack".

Hacker does the move.

Hacker charges up a super-strong punch, to which the move can actually be held at the end of the punch charging by holding the special attack button. Pretty much like Warlock Punch.

His Up Special is "Teleport".

Hacker does the move.

Hacker teleports to a different part of the stage depending on where the control stick is held.

His Down Special is "Terrian Hack".

Hacker does the move.

Hacker places a hacked laptop on the stage, and the grounded area near the laptop will make opponents easier to launch and have their damage rise slowly.

It now cuts back again to gameplay footage of Hacker and Digit idling on the Secret Museum stage.

Now, that we covered his moveset, here is his taunt.

Hacker does his taunt.

Who knew the master of malware had a munificence for masterpieces? Now, let's take a look at his alternate costumes.

We see Hacker in his king outfit, an artist outfit and a vampire outfit.

It now cuts back again to gameplay footage of Hacker and Digit idling on the Cyberspace stage.


Now that we have covered everything, it's time to see Hacker plot out his ultimate hacking takeover in a real match!

It then cuts to the Hacker vs. Digit pre-battle screen. Then, it cuts to the battle showcasing the Cyberspace stage and footage ofHacker in action. Hacker wins and it cuts to the victory screen with Hacker doing his victory animation and Digit clapping.

That is Hacker in action! We hope you enjoyed this video and we hope you look forward to the other videos in the Meet the Fighters! series for PBS Kids: Brawltime!!!

Video cuts to black screen with copyrights and all.


I'll do Ms. Frizzle real soon, and then Lionel's afterward!

Alright, so it seems voting will be closed. Now, onward to the results:

Ruff Ruffman: 5
Letterma: 4
Cliff Hanger: 0 :(

Seems like the dog gameshow host with the most, Ruff Ruffman joins PBS Kids: Brawltime! as our 18th fighter! Now, for our next job:

Job 105:

Submit a homestage for Ruff Ruffman. Describe the layout, hazards, and/or gimmicks of the stage. Get submitting and use your imagination!


My stage idea:

Ruff Ruffman's Studio

cheesycheesespa1.jpg.jpg


What better place to make Ruff Ruffman's home stage than the studio itself? Here is a stage with walkoff blast zones where the fighters must complete challenges as the hazards. It's similar to Warioware but the layout does not change. Sometimes, fighters will receive "points" (temporary stat buffs) if a task is completed. Overall, a fun gameshow based stage.

I will leave this job open till Wednesday due to the late posting of this announcement.

I actually decided to abstain from job 105, as I think that's already a good submission, but in the meantime, here's my Meet the Fighters video script for Ms. Frizzle!

PBS Kids: Brawltime! Meet the Fighters: Introducing Ms. Frizzle!

The PBS Kids: Brawltime! logo pops up with the 12 characters so far revealed on it.

It now cuts to gameplay footage of Ms. Frizzle and Lionel idling on the Secret Museum stage.


Hello everyone, and welcome to the PBS Kids: Brawltime! Meet the Fighters videos. In this series, we will be covering all the fighters in this game, talking about their moveset, stage, their history as well as other content about the character. Today, we have the super optimistic-science teacher with a deep love for outer world adventures, Ms. Frizzle!

Cuts to footage of Ms. Frizzle gameplay while narrator explains Ms. Frizzle's play style.

Many of her attacks are designed in a way that she tends to use the correct tools or methods to get the job done, depending on the situation or direction she has her sight at, and when used correctly, they can assist Ms. Frizzle to their fullest, in reference to how she is a good problem-solver in the show. Every of her attacks are also themed around the various locations she has taken her class on field trips to and the various subjects taught in the Magic School Bus episodes.

Cuts to footage of The Magic School Bus clips with Ms. Frizzle in them.

I bet she's a character who needs basically no introduction, as she's the star of the super-popular 1990's educational TV show, The Magic School Bus, where she and her class all go on wild adventures in their signature Magic School Bus, which can transforms into virtually anything to fit the wild environments they travel to! In their adventures, they all discover wonderful science lessons and learn all the spectacular science wonders along their way. Were you expecting a normal field trip, with the Friz?, No Way!

It now cuts back again to gameplay footage of Ms. Frizzle and Lionel idling on the Magic School Bus stage.

Now, let's go over Ms. Frizzle's moveset. First, let us go over her light moves.

Her Light Neutral is "Going Cellular".

Ms. Frizzle does the move.

Ms. Frizzle presents a random call in front of her (Can be a bone cell, muscle cell, skin cell or nerve cell) which damages others in front of her. If the button is press repeatedly, Ms. Frizzle will present multiple cells at once before unleashing them all at the end of the combo to launch fighters in multiple directions. Strong variant of the move has Ms. Frizzle present a BEEG cell in front of her.

Her Light Up is "Making a Rainbow".

Ms. Frizzle does the move.

Ms. Frizzle shines a flashlight through a prism to create a rainbow above her, which has a very-wide hitbox. Strong variant of the move has Ms. Frizzle create a bigger and stronger rainbow.

Her Light Down is "Get Planted"

Ms. Frizzle does the move.

Ms. Frizzle has two beanstalks grow from the ground, surrounding her and launching fighters upward. Strong variant of the move has 2 taller and wider beanstalks grow from the ground.

We have covered all of Ms. Frizzle's light moves. Now, onward to her specials.

Her Neutral Special is "Wet All Over".

Ms. Frizzle does the move.

a 3-step setup move like Villager's timber, when the move is used the first time, Ms. Frizzle places a tub of water on the ground, and when attacked, it catapults the water inside of it, pushing any fighters along the way. When the move is used the second time, Ms. Frizzle will use a heat lamp to evaporate the water in the tub (Otherwise, it just deals a very small amount of fire damage with no knockback), which then the water condenses into a cloud what floats a considerable distance off the ground and above where the tub was initially. When the move is used the third time, Ms. Frizzle then points up to the sky, causing the cloud to summon 3 powerful lightning strikes and also rain down, with the raindrop damaging fighters gradually, afterwards the cloud disappears.

Her Up Special is "Blow Its Top".

Ms. Frizzle does the move.

Ms. Frizzle gets launched into the air by a mini volcano, which covers a considerable amount of vertical height. If used on the ground, the volcano will stay on the ground for a short time, continually erupting and causing damage. If used in the air, the volcano forms a small solid platform which lasts for a certain amount of time or until Ms. Frizzle uses the move again in the air.

Her Down Special is "Lost In Space".

Ms. Frizzle does the move.

Ms. Frizzle has several model planets (Random for every time) orbit around her that acts as a reflector for physical projectiles and an absorber for energy projectiles which can actually heal her. Kinda like a combination of the Star Fox characters' reflectors and PSI magnet.

It now cuts back again to gameplay footage of Ms. Frizzle and Lionel idling on the Magic School Bus stage.

Now, that we covered her moveset, here is her taunt.

Ms. Frizzle does his taunt.

Looks like Liz has joined in with her in her small dance routine. Now, let's take a look at her alternate costumes.

Shows the many of Ms. Frizzle's iconic dresses she has worn throughout the entire show.

I bet no matter the dress she's wearing, they're all super-recognizable to some extent, aren't they?

It now cuts back again to gameplay footage of Ms. Frizzle and Lionel idling on the Magic School Bus stage.

Finally, we will take a look at Ms. Frizzle's home stage, being none other than the Magic School Bus itself! You would fight on top of the Magic School Bus itself as it travels between different worlds, from outer space to underwater, to jungles, the polar regions and even across time and space! It changes it form to accommodate to the current environment it is in. You can also see Ms. Frizzle's class inside of the bus too! Can you recognize them all?

It now cuts back again to gameplay footage of Ms. Frizzle and Lionel idling on the Magic School Bus stage.

Now that we have covered everything, it's time to see Ms. Frizzle use her bubbly science-loving personality to conveniently solve the current case in a real match!

It then cuts to the Ms. Frizzle vs. Lionel pre-battle screen. Then, it cuts to the battle showcasing the Magic School Bus stage and footage of Ms. Frizzle in action. Ms. Frizzle wins and it cuts to the victory screen with Ms. Frizzle doing her victory animation and Lionel clapping.

That is Ms. Frizzle in action! We hope you enjoyed this video and we hope you look forward to the other videos in the Meet the Fighters! series for PBS Kids: Brawltime!!! Until then, ride on the Magic School Bus!

Video cuts to black screen with copyrights and all. We also hear the iconic "beep-beep beep-beep!" sound that was heard at the end of the Magic School Bus intro.

Alright, I will close Job 105 and my stage idea will be used for Ruff Ruffman's stage. Now, onto the next job:

Job 105:

Submit an assist from FETCH with Ruff Ruffman and an assist from either a show that aired on PBS Kids GO! or a WGBH Kids show produced for PBS Kids. Get submitting and use your imagination!

My assists:

FETCH! with Ruff Ruffman Assist:

Chet
article_about_sd2.png


Ruff Ruffman's intern who's a brown mouse will follow a fighter around and will busy concocting something. When the assist meter is full, Chet will do the impossible and give damage to the opponent but give the fighter a temporary buff in stats with an invention he invented!

PBS Kids GO! Assist:


Izzie (SciGirls)

61jmzaWx-GL._RI_.jpg


Another STEM-based PBS Kids GO! show to be represented here by Izzie! As an assist, she will follow the fighter investigating the fight. However, when the assist meter is full, she will join the fight thus giving the fighter a "solution" to the problem by giving them a random buff or item. This is to reference how Izzie comes and helps real-life SciGirls with solutions for their problems.

My assists:

FETCH! with Ruff Ruffman Assist: Team Hamster
1659574225204.png

They'll all follow the fighter they are assisting in hamster balls, rolling about and tripping any other fighters they stumble across. When the meter is full, they'll preform a spin charge, similar to Dillon and Sonic's Down Special, to charge up a powerful spin blow!

PBS Kids GO! Assist: Maya and Miguel
1659574515704.png

They'll follow around the fighter they are assisting, minding their own business and watching the fight, but when the assist meter is full, they'll act similar to Latias and Latios in Smash Bros.


and here's my Meet the Fighters video script for Lionel!

PBS Kids: Brawltime! Meet the Fighters: Introducing Lionel!

The PBS Kids: Brawltime! logo pops up with the 12 characters so far revealed on it.

It now cuts to gameplay footage of Lionel and Xavier Riddle idling on the Cliff's Cliff stage.


Hello everyone, and welcome to the PBS Kids: Brawltime! Meet the Fighters videos. In this series, we will be covering all the fighters in this game, talking about their moveset, stage, their history as well as other content about the character. Today, we have the outgoing and studious little lion with a relish for reading, Lionel!

Cuts to footage of Lionel gameplay while narrator explains Lionel's play style.

Lionel is a slightly-heavy lightweight (about Fox's weight) who has above-average speed and a moderately-high jump, with his main drawback, like other lightweights, being easier to launch. His attacks mainly focus on combos and getting to the knockback point. Due to his love for books and how he wants to get things done in the least-violent ways possible, he will pull out the various books of the Barnaby B. Busterfield III Public Library to help him out in the fight for most of his attacks! The attacks themselves involve the book characters coming out of books to perform certain actions.

Cuts to footage of Between the Lions clips with Lionel and the rest of the Lion Family in them.

Between the lions was an early 2000's show that delved into the lives of the Lion Family as well as the rest of the noticeable employees at the Barnaby B. Busterfield III Public Library, where it just so happens that the books that reside in there happen to have their pages come to life whenever they are opened! Whenever they open a book to meet its characters living in them, they all learn valuable lessons on literacy and reading that have really inspired kids to be better readers and helped them understand English further! There were also lots of other iconic characters who have been in the show with their own segments, such as Cliff Hanger, Chicken Jane, Gawain and Arty Smartypants. Heck, even some Sesame Street characters have made cameos in the show as well, so could Sesame Street and Between the Lions all happen in the same universe? Who knows?

It now cuts back again to gameplay footage of Lionel and Xavier Riddle idling on the Cliff's Cliff stage.

Now, let's go over Lionel's moveset. First, let us go over his light moves.

His Light Neutral is "Clickity-Clack Moo".

Lionel does the move.

Lionel pulls out a book with a cow typing on a typewriter who types letters that fly out to damage anyone they fly into, with the cow typing faster and sending out more letters faster when the button is pressed repeatedly before finishing off with a HUGE word. Strong variant has the cow type a MASSIVE word.

His Light Up is "The Popcorn Popper".

Lionel does the move.

Lionel pulls out a book with a popcorn popper that pops 3 popcorn in the air that deal damage. Strong variant has the popcorn pop much higher and harder, resulting in more damage and knockback.

His Light Down is "Library Cleanup"

Lionel does the move.

Lionel sweeps using a hand duster into a dustpan as if he's cleaning the library's floors. The only move that doesn't have Lionel use a book. Spammable. Strong variant has Lionel sweep faster and harder.

We have covered all of Lionel's light moves. Now, onward to his specials!

His Neutral Special is "Random Page Count".

Lionel does the move.

Lionel opens a book that either spawns a lucky duck (has a chance to critical hit), Larry the rock (Hits hard), a red hat (deals fire damage), or a green hat (acts as a multihit vortex). The book object will remain on stage until Lionel uses neutral special again to claim it back, to which the object will damage anyone in its path.

His Up Special is "Cliff Heli".

Lionel does the move.

Lionel opens one of his favorite book series, The Adventures of Cliff Hanger, and takes a ride on the helicopter from the said book series!

His Down Special is "Pandora's Box".

Lionel does the move.

Lionel opens a book of Greek Myths which has Pandora's Box come out and unleash a pesky spirit that possesses a random fighter and gives them negative status effects, such as dizzy, poison or sleep.

It now cuts back again to gameplay footage of Lionel and Xavier Riddle idling on the Cliff's Cliff stage.

Now, that we covered his moveset, here is his taunt.

Lionel does his taunt.

Guess Lionel's love for books and reading has never changed, has it?. Now, let's take a look at his alternate costumes.

Shows the many of Lionel's outfits he has worn throughout the entire show.

As you can see, Lionel's outfits are tied to the many adventures he and his family have gone on over the years!

It now cuts back again to gameplay footage of Lionel and Xavier Riddle idling on the Cliff's Cliff stage.

Finally, we will take a look at Lionel's Stage, Cliff's Cliff. Lionel's favorite book series, The Adventures of Cliff Hanger, is represented here as a stage for Lionel himself! This is a stage with a grounded blastzone on the left and on the right is a bottomless pit. Cliff Hanger himself can be seen in the stage itself, just hanging about!, though he probably can't hold on for much longer. He'll occasionally cheer on the other fighters when they do something "amazing", such as KO'ing another fighter.

It now cuts back again to gameplay footage of Lionel and Xavier Riddle idling on the Cliff's Cliff stage.

Now that we have covered everything, it's time to see Lionel open the book on learning a new literacy lesson in a real match!

It then cuts to the Lionel vs. Xavier Riddle pre-battle screen. Then, it cuts to the battle showcasing the Cliff's Cliff stage and footage of Lionel in action. Lionel wins and it cuts to the victory screen with Lionel doing his victory animation and Xavier clapping.

That is Lionel in action! We hope you enjoyed this video and we hope you look forward to the other videos in the Meet the Fighters! series for PBS Kids: Brawltime!!!

Now, for the next job:

Job 106:

Submit a stage from an unrepresented series to add to PBS Kids: Brawltime! Describe the layout, hazards, and/or gimmicks of the stage. The series that gets a stage will not get a fighter. Get submitting and use your imagination!

My stage:

Precinct 13579 (The Odd Squad)

Screen_shot_2016-06-21_at_2.16.48_PM.jpg


The main setting of the first and second seasons of The Odd Squad. I'm still surprised we do not have anything from this series given it's more modern and ran for about 7 years. You fight in the main hallway on the various levels. The hazards include the various employees of The Odd Squad working and all that. Also, stuff from the various rooms will pop out as well. This stage is a walkoff stage as well.

While my submission maybe considered cheating or breaking the rules or anything, here's mine:

Tower of Heaven

1659651120663.png


So far, it was in Super Smash Land, Rivals of Aether, Smash Remix, and Project M EX Remix, so I felt that this stage can literally fit into ANY platform fighter at this point, given it's been in several non-Smash Bros platform fighters already. If Pixar has A113 and Pokémon movies have this mother and daughter, then platform fighters have Tower of Heaven. It would even come with a PBS Kids style remix of Luna Ascension.

Otherwise, the same rules and gimmicks for the stage apply here in PBS Kids: Brawltime!

I feel like for this, we can rename it something like The Tower of Imagination or Learning and make it competitively legal and all that jazz. This can work maybe as a bonus stage.

Alright, so here is what I am thinking.

Both my stage and the stage PopCultureCorn PopCultureCorn submitted will be added. However, I feel for the Tower of Learning stage, I envision it can be in some sort of free DLC update post launch (the first update) as a free additional stage with a for fun and a competitive version. If anyone has concerns with that, please let me know. For assists, Chet and Maya and Miguel will be added as assists so congrats to me and Pop! Now, for the next job:

Job 107:

Design/create a moveset for Ruff Ruffman. I envision him as a heavy-middleweight with a gameshow gimmick potentially. I may submit a moveset for him but I am not the best with movesets. So, get submitting and use your imagination!

Ruff Ruffman
Series: Fetch! with Ruff Ruffman
Debut: Fetch! with Ruff Ruffman, 3-2-1 Blast Off! (May 29, 2006)
1659827010657.png


"Time for challenge number 1/2!"

Ruff fits into the realm of heavier-middleweights, with below average jump slightly-below-average speed, but he does make those up with some fairly strong moves on his end!

Gimmicks:
True to the game show host he is, he's here to set the stage into another opportunity for his hosting career! He can "assign" other players to perform certain tasks that whenever they reach a certain requirement, Ruff will then "reward" those players some serious payback!

Moveset:
Light Neutral: Ruff performs a belly bump forward as if he's trying to belly-bump a fighter who had met an objective of his. Strong variant has Ruff do a belly flop, where he falls on his belly hard to launch those in front of him.

Light Up: Ruff lifts up a microphone while he proclaims wildly. Strong variant has Ruff lift his microphone faster and harder!

Light Down: Ruff breakdances and kicks in both directions while he does so. Strong variant has Ruff spindance on the ground, multihitting fighters before launching them.

Neutral Special: Ruff throws a card forward as a projectile that when it hits an opponent, it will give them objectives such as "Don't dodge more than 5 times", "Perform 3 successful recoveries", or "Have your guard up at least 50% full". This can really make opponents think before doing anything risky in order to avoid the consequences afterwards!

Up Special: Ruff leaps high into the air before slamming back down as a cannonball! Might not make the best recovery move, but it's very powerful regardless!

Down Special: Ruff simply pushes a portable button to have all fighters on screen summon an explosion on them to launch them when they meet his N-special objectives. (If the other fighter meets N-special requirements and Ruff's Down-special is not used, they'll still explode after some time.) This move is useful for getting that last satisfying end combo attack or to clear the stage of fighters with ease!

Entrance: Ruff comes out of the doors of his studio

Taunt: Ruff adjusts his glasses before saluting to the camera.

Victory: Ruff can be seen standing in front of a crowd of people as he proceeds to tell them that his game show has been concluded and that the viewers should tune into next time for his next show!

Defeat: Ruff sits at his desk and makes a sad pose while feeling sad.

Alright, sorry about the long wait everyone due to my life outside of SmashBoards but it seems PopCultureCorn PopCultureCorn has nailed a perfect moveset for Ruff Ruffman! I love the idea of a gameshow host gimmick for him for sure. A super unique idea at that! Now, onto the next two jobs:

Job 108:

Submit two items: one passive and one aggressive.


Side job:

Write a reveal trailer script for Ruff Ruffman.

Get submitting and use your imagination as always!


I only have one item idea as I want to hear others's ideas and this item is both passive and aggressive:

Passive and Aggressive: Magic Bag (Tots TV)

ed73b2267658708997ae377ed5359b62.254x242x1.jpg


An obscure Ragdoll IP that actually aired on PBS Kids for a few years and even had Elmo's former voice actor, Kevin Clash as Tiny! This item is like the health capsule or the party item in Smash Bros. When found on the battlefield, a fighter can reach into it and give a fighter random healing items or aggressive items. It can give the fighter five items to spawn on the battlefield.

Ruff Ruffman Trailer:


The Game Show Business but it's Brawltime Fun!


The trailer starts with the "Ja-Na-na-Na, Doink, PBS Kids!" where the PBS Kids: Brawitime! logo appears with the revealed characters (being the first 12 as well as Elmo, the Teletubbies, Molly, Ord and Marvin) by the logo.

We then see Announcer Bunny pop out of his hat with a crowd heard cheering and clapping in the background. Announcer Bunny then says "Aaaaand now, as a break from the Brawltime party, it is time for a new gameshow! This gameshow is called....

Scavenge and Seek! (The crowd says this too with Announcer Bunny) where contestants will have to scavenge and seek for various things!

And now, here's your host, Guyyyyyyy Smiley!"

Guy Smiley pops out and we see him on a gameshow-esque set.

Guy Smiley: Thank you, thank you! Welcome everyone to Scavenge and Seek! I am your host, Guy Smiley!

The crowd claps and cheers.


Guy Smiley: And now, we have three contestants, all of which who were invited to Dash's Brawltime party!

The crowd says "Oooooooh!"

Guy Smiley: Yes, yes, so please welcome our three contestants! We have the super optimistic science teacher Ms. Frizzle, the superhero with amazing vocabulary, WordGirl and the not-so-good malware overlord, Hacker to our show!"

Ms. Frizzle, WordGirl and Hacker appear on the set and wave to the crowd.

Guy Smiley: Alright then, you three, you all will have to work together to give a special Brawltime party invite to a certain someone based on three picture clues.

Ms. Frizzle: That sounds exciting! Adventure is always my favorite thing!

WordGirl: Well then, I hope this is not a scheme but time for the scavenger hunt of justice! Wait...that sounds bad.

Hacker: Uhhh yes, I'll do it if that means the grand prize is conquering Cyberspace.

Guy Smiley: Alright then, your three picture clues are....

There are three pictures: one showcasing a control room with a desk, another showcasing yellow glowup lights and the third one showcasing a doghouse.

Guy Smiley: You have 60 seconds! If you do not complete this in that time, you will not move to the next challenge! Good luck and your time starts....now!

Ms. Frizzle, WordGirl and Hacker start scrambling.

Ms. Frizzle: I know of a dog that's big and red but...he has nothing to do with beautiful yellow lights.

WordGirl: Yeah...it's definitely not Fair City.

Hacker: This is not even like that gameshow I entered in Cyberspace that had to do with math....this is bad enough.

WordGirl then finds a place as to where they can hand the invite.

WordGirl: Hey, now I got it, this way!

Ms. Frizzle and Hacker follow WordGirl and they enter a game studio with a doghouse in it.

Guy Smiley: Only 10 seconds left!

WordGirl: This is it!

Ms. Frizzle: Quite an unfamiliar place but I think we got it!

WordGirl then puts the invite through the tube and then we see a control room with a big orange dog looking down on it crying about his gameshow being cancelled.

Just then, he sees an invite come up.

Ruff Ruffman: Hey, what's this? Is this news for a reeeeeboot?

The invite then says:

Hello Ruff Ruffman,

The three contestants Ms. Frizzle, WordGirl and Hacker brought you this invite for the Brawltime party! You are invited and can now bring some gameshow fun to it! If they handed you this invite in less than 60 seconds from Scavenge and Seek, they move on to the round hosted by you! Welcome back, Ruff Ruffman!

From,

Your buds Dash and Guy Smiley

Guy Smiley: Alright, time is up and let's see if our contestants have delivered the invite to the right pla...

Guy gets cut off and we see a screen with Ruff Ruffman on it.

Ruffman: Guy, they did it! I'm back in business! Now, it's time for the next round!

The crowd cheers and Ms. Frizzle, WordGirl and Hacker look at the screen with Ruffman on it.

Ruff Ruffman: Well, now the next round will be....you will all have to come hang out with me at the Brawltime party! I got some fun challengers for all of you! Let's get this showwwwww started!

Ruff Ruffman gets into a pose just as the text pops up:

Introducing Ruff Ruffman! in the PBS Font and Ruff Ruffman stands next to it as Announcer Bunny says "Ruff Ruffman!"

We then cut to various gameplay footage of Ruff Ruffman's moveset in action with a remix of the FETCH! with Ruff Ruffman theme playing in the background. We see his stage, Ruff Ruffman's Studio as it focuses on the gameshow gimmick the stage has where he is fighting WordGirl, Ms. Frizzle and Hacker. Then, it comes to his gameshow host gimmick where he throws cards.

Ruff Ruffman: For your next challenge, try seeing if you can think on your toes!

Ms. Frizzle: Ruffman seems like quite the challenge but I got this!

Then, Ms. Frizzle is seen failing the challenge but then she completes another challenge in the gameplay footage.

Ruff Ruffman: These challenges are not going to be easy!


We then also see:

  • Ruff Ruffman with the Chet assist fighting against Ms. Frizzle with the Ralphie assist.
  • Him fighting against Arthur with The Brain as an assist on the Once Upon a Restaurant stage
  • Him posing with the Maya and Miguel assists with WordGirl on the Zoom stage
  • Hacker evilly taunting against him with Hacker having the Delete assist
  • Ruff Ruffman seen protecting the Wishbone assist and even playing with the Martha assist
Finally, it cuts to Ruff Ruffman saying:

Ruff Ruffman: Well, it seems the contestants had a bit of a struggle....but that's ok! There's more to come for this Brawltime party gameshow!

It then ends with the theme song's final word "Fetch!" being said. As the word fetch is being said, Ruff Ruffman is added to the artwork with the other characters by the PBS Kids: Brawltime! artwork and then it cuts to the black screen with the copyrights and all.

This trailer introduces:

  • Ruff Ruffman as a fighter and his stage, Ruff Ruffman's Studio
  • Chet, Maya and Miguel and Martha as assists
  • Ruffman's gameshow host themed gimmick in his moveset

I do have items:

Passive: Pyrametalid
1660001078016.png

Works like the Metal Box in Smash Bros, it turns your character into metal, which increases their weight and knockback resistance!

Agressive: Gun (Liberty's Kids)
1660001131776.png

Pretty extreme for a PBS Kids show, but Liberty's Kids was still trying to stay as historically accurate as possible while not showing real graphic violence. It's just a gun, need I say more?

I think AlteredBeast's Ruff Ruffman trailer pretty much nailed it. I was normally going to contribute to the side job, but I've decided because of this, I'll abstain from this one for this time.

Alright, my trailer script will be used for Ruff Ruffman. Also, all three items will be added. For the gun item PopCultureCorn PopCultureCorn added, I feel the gun can be similar to muskets used in historical re-enactments where the opponent gets hit by gun smoke than an actual bullet. Plus, the gun may need to look toy-is.

Now, it's time for two more jobs.

Job 109:

Submit an idea for a multiplayer mode.

Job 110:

Create an idea for a single player mode.


Get submitting and use your imagination!

My multiplayer mode:


Gold Rush

The equivalent of Coin Battle, the fighters will have to attack one another for gold based off of the currency seen in the former PBS Kids Island webpage. Whoever has the most gold at the end wins!


My single player mode:

Fitness Fun

Inspired by Dash's love of fitness, this mode will involve you playing as a fighter doing exercises aka other ways of brawling. This is PBS Kids: Brawltime's equivalent of a Stadium Mode.

There are three modes:

Green Circle Tag: The Target Test equivalent, each fighter gets their own unique stage chasing green circles akin to the PBS Kids logo with the fighter's face on it.


Anomaly Melee: The Multi-Man Melee equivalent where you fight multiple dark fighters from the Anomaly's forces. There's 100 MultiVersus Anomaly, Endless Anomaly and Cruel Anomaly

Mad Carnival Dash: As the fighter, you will run through the carnival shown in the PBS Kids Jack-in-the-Box ID as fast as you can for 10 seconds. This is the equivalent to Home Run Contest.

Multiplayer Mode: Secure the Shapes
Works like a "King of the Hill" game mode, with a twist! On the stage there are 6 designated areas marked with colorful translucent shapes, being a circle, a square, a triangle, a star, a hexagon and an octagon. A text box above view will tell you which is the current shape you must stand in to gain points, and the shape which you have to capture will change on a regular basis and the shapes themselves will change positions occasionally. Of coarse, the player with the most points wins!

Single Player mode: Multi-nomaly Mayhem
Similar to Abyss mode from Rivals of Aether, where there would be waves with different objectives for each, whether it is to defeat a certain number of dark fighters from the Anomaly's forces, destroy portals or other fun challenges, there are always a variety of things to do in this game mode. In this mode specifically, there would be learning books, similar to the runes from Rivals of Aether, where they would take up a certain number of slots in a character's book holder that would give them unique buffs and other benefits.

I submit this as this could open up the possibility for more fun job opportunities, such as Submit some new wave challenges for Multi-nomaly Mayhem and Submit a Learning Book set for (this character).

I did notice AlteredBeast's Anomaly Melee thing, which is kinda like what I had, but even then, maybe that mode can have a "Learning Anomaly", which would apply my ideas of the wave challenges and learning books I mentioned.
