Xavier Riddle
Series: Xavier Riddle and the Secret Museum
Debut: Xavier Riddle and the Secret Museum, I Am Johann Sebastian Bach (November 12, 2019)


Xavier_with_his_hand_on_his_hip.png

"Guys, I think I know exactly why the Secret Museum sent us here."

Xavier Riddle is a semi-floaty character with very floaty jumps and slightly-above-normal speed. Having nimble dodges and good air mobility, but with somewhat below-normal weight, these design attributes to his character make him the Ness of this game.

Gimmicks:
Many of Xavier's attacks are themed around his love and huge talent for acrobatics and wild inventions, as well as the various time periods he and the others have traveled to in the Secret Museum. He also has some attacks that he normally never uses in his show, but since I had Ness in mind when coming up with his character traits and how his show is very technological, I felt they were just too fitting.

Moveset:
Light Neutral: A square portal appears in front of Xavier, which spawns a random historical figure to come out and look around or wave before going back in the portal, with the damage and knockback coming from the historical figure's fast momentum of coming out of the portal. Strong variant has the historical figure fall out of the portal and land hard on the ground, which deals strong damage and knockback, before falling in another portal on the ground below the figures.

Light Up: Xavier points upwards, causing a small blast of electricity to burst above him. Strong variant has a larger electric blast burst above him, which works like Lucas' up smash.

Light Down: Xavier spins a juggling ring around him, which gimps fighters on the ground. Strong variant has Xavier perform a stronger spin.

Neutral Special: Xavier spawns a ball of blue energy that is controlled like PK Flash, which explodes when the button is let go.

Up Special: Xavier rides a rocket car in the desired direction of the control stick, a combination of Fire Fox (Blast and fire damage) and Power of Flight (distance)

Down Special: Xavier juggles some juggling balls, with each of the balls dealing constant damage as long as Xavier is juggling, which will last as long as the special attack button is pressed. A great choice for making combos with opponents who are about to attack you from above or to shield yourself from certain things above you.

Entrance: Xavier teleports onto the stage like he does when time traveling in his show.

Taunt: Berby comes out of a portal and flies around, to which Xavier's eyes follow Berby's flight path and he greets Berby before Berby goes back in the portal.

Victory: Xavier is seen teleporting all over the scene, which he then runs up to the camera and striking a victory pose.

Defeat: Xavier applauds the winner.

Alright. We will close the Xavier Riddle moveset for now as PopCultureCorn PopCultureCorn covered all the bases so good work! Also, my Multiplayer Mode idea, PBS Kids Marathon won so congrats to me! Now, for the next job. I will be doing two jobs, the main job and the side job.

First, the main job.

Job 65: Submit a stage idea from a series that is not represented at all in PBS Kids: Brawltime!

Now, for the side job
.

Side Job: Direct/write up a script for a reveal for the first reveal of PBS Kids: Brawltime!
Remember this trailer will be first shown live at a big gaming event and the trailer will feature the 12 characters as well as some other features of the game. If you want to incorporate some live-action thing in this, you can. Just type out how the trailer will go and the liking and what is introduced.


Alright, now that the stage is set, get submitting and use your imagination!

Job 65:

I will be resubmitting The Puzzle Place


My submission: The Puzzle Place (The Puzzle Place)


Unknown.jpeg


Basically The Puzzle Place is one of the older PBS Kids franchises that aired on PBS before PBS Kids was an official brand (so during the PTV Park era) from 1995-1998 and then reruns till 2000 (Between The Lions replaced The Puzzle Place). The show talked about topics such as racism, sexism, making moral decisions, etc. Therefore, it was one of the most popular PBS Kids shows at the time alongside Sesame Street. Alongside that, the show had a diverse cast of characters who were Muppets as they were different races, ethnicities, had a disability, etc. I thought it would be hard to represent the franchise with a character so why not do The Puzzle Place itself as a stage.

The stage is the main setting of the show. It is an industrial plant where jigsaw puzzles on manufactured as well as a place where the characters hang out. The basis of the stage will be based off of this playlet for the show. It is a huge stage where you can fight on the stairs and the various rooms of the place. Gears will occasionally spin. Any fighter who hits the gear will receive 15% damage. Also, the various characters of The Puzzle Place will appear in the background just socializing or watching the fight. Basically, this is the Tomodachi Life stage meets The Great Cave Offensive.


PBS Kids: Brawltime! Trailer idea

The trailer is first introduced by the host of the gaming show saying "Alright, for our next game to be revealed, I need to use something." The host will pull out a TV remote and point it at some big projector. The projector will have the black and white tv static. It will then have blurry quality footage (you can see it but not really as the footage zooms by quickly) from Sesame Street, Arthur, Mr. Roger's Neighborhood, Barney and Friends, Wild Kratts, WordGirl, Cyberchase, The Magic School Bus, Between the Lions and Xavier Riddle and The Secret Museum. It then zooms to footage of PTV Park like this (skip to 0:17 to see what I mean) and then it goes to...a Battlefield. We zoom into Dash where he does his taunt where he thinks with his one finger and goes "Doink!"

Then, Use Your Imagination (A remixed version) starts playing as the text then says in the PBS font:

Get Ready to Battle with Your Childhood Friends!

Introducing Dash! (Dash stands next to the text while the announcer says "Dash!")


Soon, three other fighters appear:

Introducing Big Bird! (Big Bird stands next to the text while the announcer says "Big Bird!")

Introducing Arthur! (Arthur stands next to the text while the announcer says "Arthur!")

Introducing Mr. Rogers! (Mr. Rogers stands next to the text while the announcer says "Mr. Rogers!")


The four then start fighting on PTV Park. Then, it cuts to other stages such as Sesame Street, The Land of Make Believe and Once Upon a Restaurant where we get a glimpse of the wave dashing and P-Head wave shining gimmick. Also, we see some of the healing items like the Alphabet Soup and Milk.

Then, it goes to The Treehouse and then Dash and Big.Bird see...a certain purple dinosaur appears along with two animal themed superhero brothers and another superhero girl.

Introducing Barney! (Barney stands next to the text while the announcer says "Barney!")

Introducing Chris and Martin! (Chris and Martin stand next to the text while the announcer says "Chris and Martin!")

Introducing WordGirl! (WordGirl stand next to the text while the announcer says "WordGirl!")

More gameplay footage is shown as well as footage of Animal Junction, WordGirl's Super Secret Spaceship Hideout and then...to The Magic School Bus stage where Dash, Big Bird and the Kratts see a red haired teacher pop out of the bus...

Introducing Ms. Frizzle! (Ms. Frizzle stands next to the text while the announcer says "Ms. Frizzle!")


Then, as gameplay continues as the Magic School Bus stage turns into a spaceship, the Kratts get knocked out by a green figure..

Introducing Hacker! (Hacker stands next to the text while the announcer says "Hacker!")

However, a little bit after, a purple cyberturkey appears.

Introducing Digit! (Digit stands next to the text while the announcer says "Digit!")

We then see footage of the Cyberspace stage with Digit, Hacker, WordGirl and Mr. Rogers fighting on it. We also see footage of the Zoom! stage and then a certain cliff with a man hanging off the cliff branch (this being Cliff's Cliff).

A certain lion cub performs his up special to knock Hacker off the cliff.

Introducing Lionel! (Lionel stands next to the text while the announcer says "Lionel!")

More gameplay footage follows. Then, we see a secret museum with the Mr. Rogers exhibit and we see a boy with a red hoodie appear.

Introducing Xavier Riddle! (Xavier stands next to the text while the announcer says "Xavier Riddle!")

Some more gameplay footage of The Secret Museum stage is shown. We see final gameplay footage with the Peanut Butter Blaster and the PBS Kids Racer. Also, we see Daniel Tiger following Mr. Rogers on the Land of Make Believe while Barney has BJ following him showcasing somewhat of how assists work but it isn't specified.

The trailer ends with all 12 characters posing alongside together for one big celebration.

Finally, the announcer says:


PBS Kids: Brawltime!

We then see all the characters by the logo of the game with the various systems that Brawltime! will be on at the bottom with the copyright.

The developers will then come on the screen with a video message saying:

"What did we just witness? We are the devs for PBS Kids: Brawltime and we hope you enjoyed the initial presentation of the game! This is only the tip of the iceberg as there is a lot more to be shown! PBS Kids: Brawltime! will be coming out later this year! There will be more info soon as we will be releasing videos featuring more content from the game and even more characters. We have lots of plans for this game so stay tuned and remember: "Use Your Imagination!"

What this trailer reveals:

The starting 12
Some items (Alphabet Soup, Peanut Butter Blaster, PBS Kids Racer and Milk)
Assists (Daniel Tiger and BJ)
The fighters's home stages and the ZOOM! stage (which will show that PBS franchises without a fighter can get a stage)
The wave dashing/P-Head wave shine feature

Job 65: The World Tree (It's a Big, Big World)

I imagine this stage's layout similar to that of Donkey Kong stages, like Kongo Falls or Jungle Japes


PBS Kids: Brawltime! reveal trailer script (My version):

Before the trailer is about to start, the host of the game show says "Now here's a brand new game that I'm sure will feature characters that will win the hearts of young gamers all over the world, as well as those who have grown up with them as well!", which then leads to a screen transition to the trailer. The first thing shown on-screen is the "RP" ESRB rating, and then it all transitions to the various worlds of PBS Kids with the characters of their respective worlds doing their usual educational ways. The trailer for the game is very initially disguising the game's true identity by making the viewers think it's another educational video game for preschoolers and kindergarteners with the footage of the PBS Kids characters doing their normal educational activities they normally do in their shows. First shown is Big Bird in Sesame Street interacting with the other Muppets as well as the kids while they sing songs about letters and numbers. Next up is Mr. Rogers who is seen doing what he usually does in the intro to every Mr. Rogers' Neighborhood episode. After that, it shows Arthur in Elwood City, who is outside glaring at DW in anger over his broken model plane and then hits her (doing it for the memes), and just as DW is sitting on the ground, Arthur then smirks at DW, as if he's sorry and wants to help DW up, before proceeding to kick DW like a soccer ball into a faraway place, to which he then throws out a few punches and kicks before posing for the camera

The stars of your childhood have come to Duke It Out!

Announcer Bunny from Between the Lions shows up and says his "Aaaaaaaa-nnouncer Bunny here to show you off all your favorite childhood friends in this wild fighting game of a lifetime!"

Introducing Arthur! (Arthur stands next to the text while Announcer Bunny says "Arthur!")

Just then, Big Bird and Mr. Rogers come out of portals onto Elwood city

Introducing Big Bird! (Big Bird stands next to the text while Announcer Bunny says "Big Bird!")

Introducing Mr. Rogers! (Mr. Rogers stands next to the text while Announcer Bunny says "Mr. Rogers!")


The trailer then shows gameplay footage of the three then start fighting on Once Upon a Resturant. Then, it cuts to other stages such as Sesame Street and The Land of Make Believe, where we get a glimpse of the wave dashing and P-Head wave shining gimmick. Also, we see some of the healing items like the Alphabet Soup and Milk.

Introducing Lionel! (Lionel stands next to the text while Announcer Bunny says "Lionel!")

Introducing Barney! (Barney stands next to the text while Announcer Bunny says "Barney!")

Introducing Ms. Frizzle! (Ms. Frizzle stands next to the text while Announcer Bunny says "Ms. Frizzle!")

Gameplay footage of Lionel, Barney and Ms. Frizzle is shown on their home stages, which includes Cliff's Cliff, the Treehouse and the Magic School Bus.

Introducing Xavier Riddle! (Digit stands next to the text while Announcer Bunny says "Xavier Riddle!")

Introducing Hacker! (Hacker stands next to the text while Announcer Bunny says "Hacker!")

Introducing Dash! (Dash
stand next to the text while Announcer Bunny says "Dash!")

Gameplay footage of Xavier Riddle, Digit and Chris and Martin are shown on their home stages, along with some offensive items, particularly the Wand and Peanut Butter Blaster.

Introducing Chris and Martin! (Chris and Martin stand next to the text while Announcer Bunny says "Chris and Martin!")

Introducing WordGirl! (WordGirl stand next to the text while Announcer Bunny says "WordGirl!")

Introducing Digit! (Digit stands next to the text while Announcer Bunny says "Digit!")

Gameplay footage is shown of Chris and Martin, Wordgirl and Digit on Animal Junction and WordGirl's Super Secret Spaceship Hideout, and the Tarrytown Sky Parade is also shown, showing that PBS Kids shows can get stages without a fighter to represent them.

Some more gameplay footage of the game is shown. Also, we see Aviva Corcovado following Chris and Martin, Chuck following Wordgirl, and Yadina Riddle has Xavier Riddle following him showcasing somewhat of how assists work but it isn't specified.

We are then shown footage of all the fighters training and working out hard in their respective worlds before showing footage of them on two different sides about to strike with each other, teasing an opening to the game.

Announcer Bunny yells out "PBS Kids: Brawltime!" while the logo shows up on screen

We then see all the characters by the logo of the game with the various systems that Brawltime! will be on at the bottom with the copyright.

The developers will then come on the screen with a video message saying:

"Huh? Just why are all those stars of your childhood battling with each other? Eh! doesn't matter! That's right, PBS Kids: Brawltime is a Platform-Fighting game ala Super Smash Bros. that stars all of your favorite PBS Kids show friends as they duke it out in the various learning worlds of the many different shows of PBS Kids. the game is set to come out later this year! There is just so much more to be revealed down the road, so stay tuned for more videos showcasing more characters, stages, and content in the future! Until then, Use Your Imagination!"

PBS Kids: Brawltime! General Gameplay Overview Video, my script:

"Hi there! And welcome to PBS Kids: Brawltime! This is a game where your goal is not to learn about things and those stuff, but to rack up damage on your opponent and launching them off the stage! But in order to do this, we have to show you the basics of how the mechanics of this game works!"

Footage of all the basic movement options is shown

"First off, you use the control stick to move left and right, jump for up to three times and crouch. Tapping left or right on the control stick makes your opponents dash! There is a standard attack button and a special attack button for different attacks. There's also the block and trap buttons, which are used for defense methods. With all that covered, let's get into the attacks themselves!

Footage of the attacks shown

"There are 3 core directions for your standard AND special attacks in the game. Neutral. Up. And Down. For standard attacks, they mostly have the same properties when used on the ground or in the air, but you can charge up your standard attacks for a strong move to gain super armor and really finish off your opponents and send them flying! You can also perform a quick strong attack with the right control stick too."

Footage of defense moves shown

"Now, onto the blocks and traps! When the block button is quickly pressed, it will produce a 6-shaped shape of energy around your character in quick succession that really shines on repelling all incoming damage! Hold the block button down to enter a counter stance that, when your opponent attacks you, you can attack back to show them you mean business! The trap button lets you stun a foe at very close range by placing them in a very familiar symbol, which can have you lead up to a follow-up attack for more combo power!"

Footage of advanced moves are shown

"Now, let's get down to the real advanced things around here! When you input the block button in a certain direction while moving in the air, you can wavedash, which lets you move in quick succession not only on the ground, but also on walls and the ceiling as well! Running stops momentum when you perform attacks, however, wavedashing keeps momentum going! Additionally, you can dash in the middle of an attack or attack in the middle of a dash."

"Finally, some additional notes, there's also a taunt button to show off your victory for successfully KO'ing someone or to be a show-off! Every character has their own set of special moves and alternate costumes, which we'll cover in future showcase videos in the coming days! So stay tuned for those videos in the future!"

For the next two jobs for the game now that the game has been revealed to the public and gotten a good reception:

Job 66:

Submit an idea for a newcomer prompt. Depending on the amount of prompts I get, the top 2 or 3 will be used for the next 2/3 fighters we add.

Side job that will be ongoing:

Write scripts for the PBS Kids: Brawltime! General Gameplay Overview Video as well as scripts for the Meet the Fighters PBS Kids: Brawltime! Video

Remember, the Meet the Fighters videos should include:
-General overview of how they play
-Background on the fighter and the show they come from
-Overview of their moveset
-More about their homestage
-Alternate costumes
-Gameplay

The scripts will be first come, first serve!


Get submitting and remember, use your imagination!

My idea for a newcomer prompt:

Submit a PBS Kids character from a show/IP who initially started off on another network or another country.
My idea for a newcomer prompt:

Submit a PBS Kids character from a PBS Kids show that you did not hear about until now or very recently.
Submit a second character from a show on our roster
Ok, I will close Job 66 for now. Also, for the unrepresented series stage, The Puzzle Place will be joining and my reveal trailer idea will be used for PBS Kids: Brawltime! (I will also be making Announcer Bunny from Between the Lions our announcer for this game thanks to Pop's reveal trailer so I will tweak my reveal trailer idea a bit). Also PopCultureCorn PopCultureCorn already has written the script for the gameplay overview video which means the 12 other characters still need scripts for their overview videos. Anyway, I would like to announce that I want to do all three of these newcomer prompts for the next three newcomers. But, we will decide which one to do first. You can only vote for your own newcomer prompt in second. Vote for your top 2.

Submit a PBS Kids character from a show/IP who initially started off on another network or another country. AlteredBeast AlteredBeast
Submit a PBS Kids character from a PBS Kids show that you did not hear about until now or very recently. PopCultureCorn PopCultureCorn
Submit a second character from a show on our roster Darkonedagger Darkonedagger

1. Second character from show on roster (There are a few that I can think of that can be fun additions.)
2. Character from show/IP that debuted on another network/came from another country (We still do not have a character that was not PBS from the beginning outside from a few stages being from shows that were not always affiliated with PBS.)

Alright. I am closing voting.

Second character from show represented on roster-6
Show you recently found out about-0

It's a tie between my prompt and the prompt Darkonedagger Darkonedagger submitted. I think we will do Darkone's prompt first for something different and then my prompt will be for the next newcomer. Finally, Pop's prompt will be for the last newcomer for the batch with newcomer prompts. Also, I still need scripts for the overview videos of the 12 characters so far on the roster. Without further ado...


Job 67:

Submit a character from a series already represented on the roster. You can submit a second character from any franchise on the roster besides Cyberchase which already has two characters. Get submitting and use your imagination.


My submission is going to be Buster Baxter from Arthur.

Buster is the best friend of Arthur and is known for being witty, a foodie at heart and even a traveler which led to him receiving his own spinoff
Postcards for Buster. Unlike Arthur who is savage at time, I feel Buster can have a very pacifist moveset to coincide with his easygoing attitude with food, one move regarding taking videos to represent his spinoff series, even throw in a move to represent his love of aliens. Overall, Buster is very recognizable, a fan favorite at that and technically he could represent his spinoff series along with the main Arthur series.

I have a feeling there'll be a lot of Arthur releated submissions here, heh
Mary Moo Cow/Dark Bunny (Arthur)

Mary Moo Cow is a parody of Barney from Arthur. I think we should have at least one in-universe fictional character and it'd be pretty fun to have a character alongside their own parody. As a parody, perhaps her moveset could reflect the more commercial side of characters like Barney, using her comically niche toys and merchandise!

Dark Bunny, on the other hand, is a parody of Batman - more specifically TAS Batman. He would be more agressive and direct than any other fighter on the roster.

As a stance fighter, you would switch between them like Arthur and DW fighting over the remote. Both are heavyweights - Dark Bunny would likely be faster and more agressive, while Mary would be defensive based and perhaps a bit of a zoner.

Due to the tragic passing of Gilbert Gottfried, I don't know who they would get to replace him as the voice of Digit if a game like this was ever made. Although my choice is Rob Paulsen. He can do a pretty good impression of Gilbert Gottfried's iconic voice, as shown by Paulsen's portrayal of Nicolai Technus in Danny Phantom.

Fair but due to this being all muse and fanfiction, we could just use archived voice clips. But, you do have a point after all.

Tough one for me, honestly, I do know lots of people like to do impressions of him, but that's a subject where negotiations can be tough

Alright, now it is time for me to submit my script idea for the first PBS Kids: Brawltime! Meet the Fighters video. This one will be about Big Bird.

PBS Kids: Brawltime! Meet the Fighters: Introducing Big Bird!

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

It now cuts to gameplay footage of Big Bird and Mr. Rogers idling on the Sesame Street 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. To kick us off, we will be introducing Big Bird!

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

Big Bird is one of the tallest characters in the game . Despite being a Muppet, Big Bird is also somewhat on the heavy side. However, being a bird, Big Bird has excellent aerial mobility. Along with this, Big Bird has some of the highest jumps and really fast air speed. As one of the four "starter characters," Big Bird is a great character to learn for beginners. He does not have any special gameplay gimmick unless you count his aerial mobility.

Cuts to footage of Sesame Street clips with Big Bird in them.

Big Bird does not really need any introduction as he has been around since PBS's beginning ages. Sesame Street has been around since 1969 and Big Bird has been there since the first time we visited Sesame Street. Since then, Big Bird has been teaching children their ABCs and 123s as well as life lessons about being a friend and helping one another. Sesame Street is always gaining new visitors.

It then cuts to footage of the Sesame Street episode where Big Bird meets Mr. Rogers.

In fact, Big Bird has met one of the other fighters in PBS Kids: Brawltime! being Mr. Rogers who will be covered in another video. This bird is quite famous as he still is today.

It now cuts back again to gameplay footage of Big Bird and Mr. Rogers idling on the Sesame Street stage.

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

His Light Neutral is "Big Wing Slap".

Big Bird does the move.

Big Bird reaches out for a slap with his big wings. This can be chained into a two-hit jab, similarly to Villager's boxing gloves in Smash. If charged, Big Bird can only perform one slap.

His Light Up is "Letter of the Day".

Big Bird does the move.

Big Bird lifts the Letter of the Day into the air above his head. The Letter is randomly chosen at the beginning of the match and will not be changed, but there's no gameplay difference between the 26 of them. Every Big Bird player in the match will have the same Letter. The move is not really changed when charged, aside from the obvious damage and knockback buff.

His Light Down is "Low Bird Kick."

Big Bird does the move.

Big Bird performs a low kick with one of his long legs. This has upward knockback, which can easily chain into a Light Neutral at low percents, or a Light Up at higher percents. When charged, the knockback angle slightly tilts away from Big Bird. At max charge, it can be a very effective kill move near the blast zone.

Now, onward to Big Bird's specials.

His Neutral Special is "You Got a Letter!"

Big Bird does the move.

Big Bird pulls the Letter of the Day back out and uses it as a spinning projectile! The Letter travels straight forward with no regard for gravity. It disappears if it connects with an opponent or travels uninterrupted for three seconds straight. Big Bird can have up to two Letter projectiles on screen at a time.

His Up Special is "Flap, Flap."

Big Bird does the move.

Big Bird flaps his wings to gain what is essentially a fourth jump, although it's not as good as his default three. Big Bird can deal light damage on opponents who are really close to him when he flaps his wings.

His Down Special is "Unicycle Ride."

Big Bird does the move.

Big Bird hops onto a unicycle. This is a stance where he can move at a higher speed, but cannot jump and can't stop very fast. Big Bird will damage opponents he collides with on his ride, but he will be knocked off the unicycle if he's struck by an attack. Disjoints are especially effective against him in this state. Inputting Down Special again returns Big Bird to normal. If triggered in the air, Big Bird will drop to the ground and cannot move until he lands, but he can cancel the fall. He can spike opponents he lands on during this fall. Riding the unicycle off a ledge has a similar effect, but in this circumstance, Big Bird can not cancel the unicycle until he lands and will also move left or right depending on his momentum, so this can be used for a risky spike, so watch out!

It now cuts back again to gameplay footage of Big Bird and Mr. Rogers idling on the Sesame Street stage.

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

Big Bird does his taunt.

He seems to still love his teddy bear, Radar after all these years. Now, let's take a look at his alternate costumes.

We see a Big Bird with a tie on, green Big Bird, blue Big Bird and Classic Big Bird.

Big Bird's alternate costumes include:

  • Big Bird with a tie as seen in the Sesame Street special, Elmopalooza
  • Green Big Bird, who you might have guessed is inspired by the grouch himself, Oscar
  • Blue Big Bird, who you might have guessed is inspired by Cookie Monster
  • And finally, Clasic Big Bird inspired by Big Bird's earlier appearances on Sesame Street.
It now cuts back again to gameplay footage of Big Bird and Mr. Rogers idling on the Sesame Street stage.

Finally, we will take a look at Big Bird's home stage which is none other than Sesame Street itself.

It cuts to footage with Big Bird and Mr. Rogers idling while the stage showcases the various locations on Sesame Street.

The Sesame Street stage is a traveling stage with walkouts with two platforms on both sides at all times. You will pass familiar locations on the street such as the 123 Doorstep, Mr. Hooper's Store, Luis's Fix-It Shop, Oscar's Trash Can and then back to Big Bird's Nesting Area. You may also notice some of the Sesame Street residents in the background. See if you can spot some familiar faces.

It now cuts back one final time to gameplay footage of Big Bird and Mr. Rogers idling on the Sesame Street stage.

Now that we have covered everything, let's see Big Bird in action.

It then cuts to the Big Bird vs Mr. Rogers pre-battle screen. Big Bird's entrance is him popping out of his door on Sesame Street. Then, it cuts to the battle showcasing the Sesame Street stage and footage of Big Bird in action. Big Bird wins and it cuts to the victory screen with Big Bird doing his victory animation and Mr. Rogers clapping.

That is Big Bird 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.

Please give me feedback on the script and I hope you all like it. 11 more characters to go if anyone wants to write a script for their Meet the Fighters! videos!

Well, frankly, I WAS going to submit Elmo, but someone else already did, so since I'm kinda out of options for this, well, I might as well submit:
Job 67: Arty Smartypants (Between the Lions)

I know others have submitted him in the past, but I was out of options anyway, and I do think Arty has big moveset potential

Elmo
This furry little monster is arguably the most popular Sesame street character. He has his own long running segment and I think he'd be a fun character and very different to big bird.

1. Elmo (He’s iconic and can prove to have a fun moveset. Plus, some representation for the mini Sesame Street spin-offs.)
2. Buster (Self-vote but he’s well known and can be the opposite of Arthur. Plus, some content for Postcards for Buster.)

Shoutout to Mary Moo Cow/Dark Bunny and Arty. All great picks.

Alright. Voting is closed.

Buster: 6
Mary Moo Cow/Dark Bunny: 0
Elmo: 7
Arty Smartypants: 2

After a really close round, the furry red monster with a super huge imagination, Elmo joins PBS Kids: Brawltime! as the 13th fighter. Right now, I want to do polls regarding Elmo before we get to work on him.

Elmo Stage Poll
Where Should Elmo be Revealed poll?

Now, onward to the next job:

Job 69:

Submit a plot idea for a story mode for PBS Kids: Brawltime!


Similar to all fighting games, there is a single player campaign mode where it has a story. Come up with a general idea for the story and how it will work.

Also, the side job for the PBS Kids: Brawltime! Meet the Fighters videos is still open for the remaining 11 characters (soon to be 12) so submit your scripts for those! I will probably submit one for Dash later. As usual, get submitting and use your imagination!

My story mode idea:


Basically, I can envision the story mode being similar to Subspace Emissary (with platforming elements and the platform fighting elements) where there is great disturbance in the PBS Kids multiverse. The protagonists of the story are Dash and Dot. They ultimately discover some greater evil is causing all the PBS universes to be mixed up as well as different characters in different worlds. Your goal is to find out about the greater evil and restore peace to the PBS Kids multiverse. There will be cutscenes involving dialogue between the characters as well as exploration of the various worlds. Even worlds without fighters will play parts as I consider the story to be a love letter to PBS Kids's history.

Like AlteredBeast AlteredBeast , I envision the story mode being similar to Subspace Emissary (with platforming elements and the platform fighting elements). In my idea, the premise is that, a somewhat-long-time ago, a mysterious evil being known as "the Anomaly" has taken over every world in the PBS Kids Universe and has enslaved their citizens in glowing-purple chains of energy. The main characters of those worlds, however, managed to escape the Anomaly by jumping in green portals conveniently summoned by some kindly being that led to a world with no towns, cities, technology or civilization, but just millions of acres of plain grasslands, desert, snow, forests and some ruins too. For many years, the main characters of those PBS Kids worlds have been hiding from the Anomaly, but they have been doing nothing but roam around the empty lands and battle with each other, mostly out of confusion and not knowing where they are or what is happening. As time progressed, the main characters of the PBS Kids worlds have started to get more content with each other, knowing they didn't mean any harm and they just want their worlds and everything back, and they have started to fight together and not fight each other, which just happens to be the moment when the Anomaly finds the "World of No-Learning", which is the "millions of acres of plain grasslands, desert, snow, forests and some ruins too" lands which the main characters have been transported to. With this, the main characters' goal is to defeat the Anomaly and restore peace and order to their worlds. I can imagine PBS Kids: Brawltime!'s story mode being split into "arcs", which are really just chapters that follow a certain group of fighters and their journeys and the opponents they face, who are either doppelgangers of the main characters created by the Anomaly, the Anomaly's enslaved minions, and the Anomaly itself. There will be cutscenes involving dialogue between the characters.

Alright, now I am going to write the script for Dash. Today is kind of sentimental as I write this due to the fact that PBS will no longer be using Dash and Dot on their logos anymore sadly. A shame to see companies be like this.


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


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

It now cuts to gameplay footage of Dash and Arthur idling on the PTV Park 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 will be talking about none other than the former PBS Kids mascot himself, Dash!

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

Due to Dash being simply PBS Kids' mascot and only really appearing in channel bumpers, IDs and commercials as well as the channel's logo, he's a perfectly balanced fighter, a great character to learn for beginners without any real advantages and disadvantages, or gimmicks either. He does not have any (real) gimmicks tied to him to properly tie with his balanced and easy-to-learn nature. However, he attacks by mostly using transformations and doing things that he and Dot have been known to do in the PBS Kids bumpers and commercials.

Cuts to various footage of PBS Kids IDs, channel bumpers and commercials starring Dash.

You may recognize Dash from his many years of being PBS Kids's mascot and for being on the PBS Kids logo from 1999 to 2022. He, along with his sister Dot have been in several of the channel bumpers, IDs and commercials. He is also super athletic and a friendly soul to all. He is quite the guy to get along with all the fighters here in PBS Kids: Brawltime!

It now cuts back again to gameplay footage of Dash and Arthur idling on the PTV Park stage.


Now, let's go over Dash's moveset. First, we go over his Light Moves.

Dash's Light Neutral is "Triple Transform".

Dash performs the move.

Dash will throw a three-hit combo, starting with two punches and then randomly transform into a tiger, car, octopus or astronaut (aesthetic only and will not change properties of the move) to ram the opponent forward. The strong variant of the move only has Dash use any of his transformations to perform a stronger ram.

Dash's Light Up is "Firefly Spotting".

Dash performs the move.

Some fireflies will fly above Dash while he looks up in wonder. A move that deals multi-hits. The strong variant of the move has more fireflies fly above Dash and flying in faster motions.

Dash's Light Down is "Garden Grab".

Dash performs the move.

Dash would pull out a carrot from underground, before letting it go and causing the carrot to fly upwards a short distance and flipping any opponents above the carrot. The strong variant of the move has Dash struggle to pull out a humongous carrot while charging, and when done charging, bolting the humongous carrot out of the ground while also causing dirt to fly everywhere. A rabbit maybe aesthetically hanging around on the humongous carrot at random. If used in the air, Dash will grab a carrot from his feet level and still chuck it upwards like on the ground.

We have covered all of his light moves. Now, onward to Dash's special.

Dash's Neutral Special is "GOOOOOOAL!"

Dash performs the move.

Dash simply kicks a soccer ball, beach ball or kick ball (like the light/strong neutral, is aesthetic only and will not change properties of the move) as a simple projectile.

Dash's Up Special is "Kite Flying."

Dash performs the move.

Dash simply has a kite give him upward lift. The kite can damage others if others are in the way of Dash flying upward.

Dash's Down Special is "Magnet Pull".

Dash performs the move.

Dash will use a magnet to pull any items or opponents close to him within a certain range. If Dash manages to pull in opponents, Dash can perform a spinning attack by pressing the special attack button again to combo the opponents he pulled in before launching them away.

It now cuts back again to gameplay footage of Dash and Arthur idling on the PTV Park stage.

That is Dash's moveset. Now, let's take a look at his taunt.

Dash does his taunt.

Ah, yes. This is a reference to the first PBS Kids Channel ID. You may have noticed Dash did this in the first trailer for PBS Kids: Brawltime! in the beginning of the trailer. Now, let's take a look at Dash's alternate costume.

We see two alts: one of Dash but he's orange and one with him in his blue superhero uniform

Dash's alternate costumes include:
  • Orange Dash which is a reference to the PBS Kids Channel ID where Dash was a fish
  • And Dash in his blue superhero uniform from another PBS Kids Channel ID.
Now, you may be wondering, who are the other two costume slots for? Well..it's quite obvious who the last two costumes are for.

Dot appears with her default alt as well as her pink superhero alt.

That's right! Dash's sister, Dot fills the last two slots for Dash's alternate costumes. Despite she and her brother, Dash's age difference, she shares all the same moves and abilities as Dash, apart from having a female voice.

Dot has her regular appearance and superhero outfit as her alternate costumes for Dash.

It now cuts back again to gameplay footage of Dash and Arthur idling on the PTV Park stage.

Here is a quick look at Dash's stage which is PTV Park. PTV Park was the original kids block for PBS before PBS Kids came about. The park also functions as a hangout place for the PTV P-Pals. Supposedly, Dash and Dot know about this place as well before they were around. This stage has a simple layout of three platforms that form a triangle shape with no hazards. This stage is perfect for tournaments or if you just want a serious match. However, if you notice in the background, the PTV P-Pals make an appearance as they will say their usual jingle. Let's have a listen.

The PTV P-Pals do their thing and the dog appears with the balloon and all.

It then cuts back one final time to gameplay footage of Dash and Arthur idling on the PTV Park stage.


We are super happy to see the PTV P-Pals make their reappearance after so long. Now that you know all about Dash, let's see him in action!

It then cuts to the Dash vs Arthur pre-battle screen. Dash does his entrance and all. Then, it cuts to the battle showcasing the PTV Park stage and footage of Dash in action. Dash wins and it cuts to the victory screen with Dash doing his victory animation and Arthur clapping.

That is Dash 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.

Please give me feedback on the script and I hope you all like it. 10 more characters to go if anyone wants to write a script for their Meet the Fighters! videos!

Alright. I feel we should use the idea PopCultureCorn PopCultureCorn proposed for the story mode as it is my idea but elaborated. Based on the Strawpoll for a stage for Elmo, the people have spoken!

Job 70:

Design/submit a homestage for Elmo. Be sure to describe the layout, hazards, and/or gimmicks if there are any.

Get submitting and use your imagination as usual!

My stage idea for Elmo:

Tickle Me Land

hqdefault.jpg


If you remember the old Elmo's World Series, you may remember towards the end of the segment, Dorothy, Elmo's goldfish imagined Elmo doing something/being something in relation to the topic of the segment. This is the imaginary world where Dorothy envisions that "everything everywhere is furry and red"—to be exact, all just variants of Elmo.

The stage would have a layout similar to
Town and City from the Smash Bros games. Different versions of Elmo will appear in the background. I feel Sesame Street deserves to have a competitively legal stage due to it being such as an iconic franchise, especially something related to Elmo due to his appeal to young children as well as his presence in memes.

A Sesame Street location from a theatrical movie, The Adventures of Elmo in Grouchland. Even though this movie, as well as another theatrical Sesame Street movie, Follow That Bird!, which focused primarily on Big Bird, were box office bombs, they were genuinely good/underrated and are worth the watch today. It is notably the hometown to Oscar the Grouch and the location where Elmo had to retrieve his blue blanket he loves so much.

I can imagine this stage's layout similar to either The Dump from NASB or Onett from Smash Bros, with various Grouchland residents, such as Grizzy, making cameos in the background of the stage, including Huxley himself! You can even see Elmo's blue blanket drifting in the background of the stage as well!

Hey, everyone, just for quick and necessary clarification, the "World of No-Learning" I mentioned in my Story Mode plot is indeed that same world with "just millions of acres of plain grasslands, desert, snow, forests and some ruins too" to which the main characters were transported to. I figured I'd say this to prevent confusion.

Well, here's my first Meet the Fighters video script:

PBS Kids: Brawltime! Meet the Fighters: Introducing Mr. Rogers!

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

It now cuts to gameplay footage of Mr. Rogers and Arthur idling on the Land of Make Believe 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 will be talking about America's favorite neighbor, Mr. Rogers!

Cuts to footage of Mr. Rogers gameplay while narrator explains Mr. Rogers' play style.

Being the kind and healthy man that he is, Mr. Rogers is a pure middleweight who is balanced for most of his stats, making him a great all-around character of choice. Thus, his run speed and jump height cover a very fair amount of distance and all of his attacks and specials have easy-to-understand properties and have a fair amount of power, supporting his all-around character. Being the all-around character with very balanced stats, he would not have a specific gimmick. However, staying true to his kindness and nonviolence nature, many of Mr. Rogers's attacks and specials are themed in a way so that it appears that Mr. Rogers is not trying to directly and explicitly attack the other fighters, but would instead appear as if he would be demonstrating others on how to be kind to others, with the actual damage from the attacks would be the "mistakes, happenings and whimsical accidents" that happen during the moves.

Cuts to various footage of Mr. Rogers' Neighborhood.

I bet he's a fighter who also needs no introduction, but since you're here anyway, you may recognize him from his ever-famous, award-winning Mr. Rogers' Neighborhood! His show predates Sesame Street by just one year in 1968, and it features the kind and gentle teachings and messages of Mr. Rogers, as well as his adventures in the Land of Make Believe, which have enthralled children for over 4 decades. What make this children's show unique is that it was designed to be enjoyable to young children AND grown-adults alike, which is one big reason why this show is so special today.

It then cuts to footage of the Arthur episode where Arthur meets Mr. Rogers.

Mr. Rogers has not only met one, but TWO other fighters before in PBS Kids: Brawltime! being Arthur who will be covered in future video!

It now cuts back again to gameplay footage of Mr. Rogers and Arthur idling on the Land of Make Believe stage.


Now, let's go over Mr. Rogers' moveset. First, we go over his Light Moves.

Mr. Rogers' Light Neutral is "Sharing is Caring".

Mr. Rogers performs the move.

Mr. Rogers lunges forward his arm with a sharable item in his hand (Item can be anything that's considered sharable, and it's a random aesthetic change) intending to share his items with the others but would instead deal damage and launch them forward. The strong variant of this move has Mr. Rogers' arm cover a little more horizontal distance and he would lunge out his arm faster.

Mr. Rogers' Light Up is "Stay cool".

Mr. Rogers performs the move.

Mr. Rogers fans himself with a paper fan to cool himself off, with Mr. Rogers' waving motions acting as the attack here. The strong variant has Mr. Rogers wave his arm in harder motions.

Mr. Rogers' Light Down is "Gentle Gardening".

Mr. Rogers performs the move.

Mr. Rogers waters a spot in the ground with a watering can in front of him causing a flower to suddenly grow out of the ground, with the attack being the rising flower out of the ground, launching opponents upward. The strong variant of the move has Mr. Rogers water the ground for longer when charging, resulting in a giant flower growing out of the ground, dealing much more damage and knockback. If used in the air, Mr. Rogers will water a flowerpot.

We have covered all of his light moves. Now, onward to Mr. Rogers' special attacks.

Mr. Rogers' Neutral Special is "Mini-Trolley"

Mr. Rogers performs the move.

Mr. Rogers pulls out a replica of the neighborhood trolley and places it on the ground, letting it drive on its own. The trolley acts as a grounded projectile that deals damage to anything it contacts with.

Mr. Rogers' Up Special is "Give me a lift please, puppets"

Mr. Rogers performs the move.

Mr. Rogers will hold onto any of a random combination of puppets (aesthetics only, puppets include Daniel Tiger, X the Owl, King Friday, Queen Saturday, Prince Tuesday, etc.) who magically levitate upwards with him. Can gimp opponents upwards.

Mr. Rogers' Down Special is "Kind Words".

Mr. Rogers performs the move.

Mr. Rogers gives out a short influential and kind line (which is random) which has the ability to reflect projectiles, nullify thrown objects, and stun others very briefly as if they were flattered by what they just heard. Staying true to his easy-to-learn playstyle, this move would have a range in front of him that doesn't require precise or deadly timing, but it would not be too long or too short.

It now cuts back again to gameplay footage of Mr. Rogers and Arthur idling on the Land of Make Believe stage.

That is Mr. Rogers' moveset. Now, let's take a look at his taunt.

Mr. Rogers does his taunt.

You wanna guess what might be inside this little suitcase? That's right, little hats! Now, let's go over his alts!

We see all of Mr. Rogers' alt costumes, being his differently colored sweaters he has worn over the years.

Mr. Rogers' alternate costumes include all of his differently colored sweaters, right out of his closet!

It now cuts back again to gameplay footage of Mr. Rogers and Arthur idling on the Land of Make Believe stage.

Here is a quick look at Mr. Rogers' stage, which is none other than the Land of Make Believe! This stage has a simple layout of two platforms and no hazards. This stage is perfect for tournaments or if you just want a serious match. Oh! and you can even see the Land's recognizable residents in the background too! Can you recognize whom is whom?

Puppets like King Friday, Queen Saturday, Prince Tuesday, Daniel Tiger and X the Owl appear in the background

It then cuts back one final time to gameplay footage of Mr. Rogers and Arthur idling on the Land of Make Believe stage.


Now, let's watch Mr. Rogers show how much the world can be a better place with kindness and sharing, in a real match!

It then cuts to the Mr. Rogers vs Arthur pre-battle screen. Mr. Rogers does his entrance and all. Then, it cuts to the battle showcasing the Land of Make Believe stage and footage of Mr. Rogers in action. Mr. Rogers wins and it cuts to the victory screen with Mr. Rogers doing his victory animation and Arthur clapping.

That is Mr. Rogers 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!!!

Alright. I feel we should use the idea PopCultureCorn PopCultureCorn proposed for the story mode as it is my idea but elaborated. Based on the Strawpoll for a stage for Elmo, the people have spoken!

Job 70:

Design/submit a homestage for Elmo. Be sure to describe the layout, hazards, and/or gimmicks if there are any.


Get submitting and use your imagination as usual!

My stage idea for Elmo:

Tickle Me Land

View attachment 353728


If you remember the old Elmo's World Series, you may remember towards the end of the segment, Dorothy, Elmo's goldfish imagined Elmo doing something/being something in relation to the topic of the segment. This is the imaginary world where Dorothy envisions that "everything everywhere is furry and red"—to be exact, all just variants of Elmo.

The stage would have a layout similar to
Town and City from the Smash Bros games. Different versions of Elmo will appear in the background. I feel Sesame Street deserves to have a competitively legal stage due to it being such as an iconic franchise, especially something related to Elmo due to his appeal to young children as well as his presence in memes.
Elmo's World

This takes place inside Elmo's apartment room. This stage has 4 walls, each with a hole that opens and closes - two windows; two doors; and an attic. Only one hole can be open at once, so there's only one way to KO at once! Red represents doors and yellow represents the table platform.

A Sesame Street location from a theatrical movie, The Adventures of Elmo in Grouchland. Even though this movie, as well as another theatrical Sesame Street movie, Follow That Bird!, which focused primarily on Big Bird, were box office bombs, they were genuinely good/underrated and are worth the watch today. It is notably the hometown to Oscar the Grouch and the location where Elmo had to retrieve his blue blanket he loves so much.

I can imagine this stage's layout similar to either The Dump from NASB or Onett from Smash Bros, with various Grouchland residents, such as Grizzy, making cameos in the background of the stage, including Huxley himself! You can even see Elmo's blue blanket drifting in the background of the stage as well!
Hi all, sorry for the delay but it is time to vote for the stage for Elmo as well as a side job for PBS Kids: Brawltime! Vote for your top 2 stages but you can only put your own in second.

Tickle Me Land AlteredBeast AlteredBeast
Elmo's World Wario Wario Wario Wario Wario Wario
Grouchland USA PopCultureCorn PopCultureCorn


My votes:
1. Elmo's World (It's a super iconic location and thus should be Elmo's stage.)
2. Tickle Me Land (Self-vote but Sesame Street deserves to have a competitively viable stage due to it being an iconic franchise.)

Now, for the side job:

Calling all platform fighter fans! PBS Kids: Brawltime! will be having an invitational to showcase the competitive and/or casual potential this game has. It will be a character-locked bracket which will have 12 professional platform fighter players playing a character in bracket to showcase the 12 characters that were revealed in the initial trailer.

In this side job:


  • Discuss how the bracket should be ran and how it will be formatted. Also, come up with a possible prize for the champion!
  • Nominate a max of 2 professional platform fighter players to be in the invitational. They must be well-known in a platform fighter competitive community. Also, say which character you think that player should play. This can be any familiar face from the Smash communities, Nick All Star Brawl, Rivals of Aether, Slap City, etc.
Get submitting and use your imagination!

How I think the bracket should work:

Similar to the Smash invitationals ran by Nintendo, the bracket will start off with free-for-alls up to 3 players with items and even assists on the causal stages. The bracket will be single elimination. The first round will be first to 3.

Then the 4 players that advance will move on to more competitive rounds which will be best of 5 with no items and on competitive viable stages.

Grand finals is the same way.

Winner will receive big trophy as well as very special VHS slip cover based off of the old PBS Home Video clam cases with special PBS Kids: Brawltime! invitational artwork. All players will receive medal and participation prizes.

Platform fighter players I will be nominating:


  1. VoiD
VoiD.jpg


You may know him from being one of the top 10 players of all-time for Smash 4 as well as top 50 in Smash Ultimate with Sheik. Throw in the fact he dominated Nick All Star Brawl in the first month with his Aang. Now, he will dominate MultiVersus with his Tom and Jerry. Therefore, he's no stranger to platform fighters and should be in the invitational. He will play The Kratt Brothers because he has been playing as a tag team in MultiVersus. Also, this can be a funny tongue in cheek to Ultimate's meta having Pyra/Mythra as the saviors of the meta and the destroyers. After all, he is going to find some sort of sick 0-to death with Chris Kratt anyway so heh. I was going to give him Lionel but Thaddeus fits him better due to the cat theme.

2. Sandstorm

600px-Sandstorm_CEO2019.jpg


Representing the Brawlhalla community and is also a very good Smash player from Pennsylvania, Sandstorm should be in the invitational. Given he's #1 in Brawlhalla, it would be awesome to represent different platform fighter communities in this invitational. He will play Arthur in the invitational due to him maining Mordex in Brawlhalla and the Shotos/Terry in Smash Ultimate.

All 3 are really cool though

Not a competitive player by any means, but...

Thaddeus Crews (Coder on Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl, community manager for Ludosity)

Licensed platfighter devs gotta stick together. Fitting in the cat theme, he'd play Lionel.

If I can submit him as a commentator instead, I would.

You can submit Thaddeus but just add who he would play as for the invitational please.

I don't have much in mind for it, but here is my side job submission:
Markus Villalobos (UI Designer on Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl, dev at Fair Play Labs)
He narrated half of the Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl character showcase videos alongside Thaddeus Crews. The character he might choose is Barney (Mostly because I know he narrated Reptar's Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl character showcase video)

Alright. Based on the voting results so far, all three stages are tied.... We will break the tie via a Strawpoll then. You can vote for your own stage if you want or someone else's stage.

Elmo Stage Poll

The PBS Kids: Brawltime! invitational job will still be open indefinitely, same with the Meet the Fighters! video scripts! Now, onward to the next job to keep the thread running.

Job 71:

Design/create a moveset for Elmo.


Lots of cool ideas, you can pull stuff from Sesame Street, the Elmo segments, etc. So, get submitting and use your imagination!

Elmo
Series: Sesame Street
Debut: Sesame Street,
Episode 1405 (As background character), Sesame Street, Episode 1439 (as mainline character)

Elmo.png

"If you keep practicing, you can do anything."

Elmo is a true-lightweight with most of the typical characteristics of lightweights, though being easy to launch, he has fast movement and nimble dodging skills. He is the kind of lightweight that is easy to learn and use in terms of his attacks, and anyone who prefers a lightweight-style play will find him as a good choice.

Gimmicks:
Elmo lacks any true gimmicks to his character, but half of his attacks are themed around him being playful and doing stuff he has been known to do in Elmo's World.

Moveset:
Light Neutral: Elmo throws two punches before throwing a kick at the end. Strong variant has Elmo throw a stronger punch.

Light Up: Elmo holds a fish bowl with his goldfish, Dorothy, above him and Dorothy jumps out of the bowl once, damaging any fighter she makes contact with. Strong variant has Dorothy do a higher and stronger leap.

Light Down: Elmo slams down Rocco (Zoe's rock friend) in front of him. Strong variant has Elmo slam Rocco harder.

Neutral Special: Elmo draws a "friend" with his crayons on an easel before unleashing the friend forward as a projectile.

Up Special: Elmo throws an uppercut for upward lift, similar to Mario's and Ryu's up specials.

Down Special: Elmo puts an Alaska flag in the spot in front of him, and when down special is pressed again, Zoes zooms into the spot of the Alaska flag in her wooden jeep, ramming any opponents she hits. Perfect for ambushes and surprises!

Entrance: Elmo comes out of an Elmo's World style door onto the battle

Taunt: Elmo enters a "salute the sun" pose while flames surround him

Victory: Elmo does the dance and motions he does in the intro of Elmo's World before getting to a piano and playing a victory tune!

Defeat: Elmo applauds the winner.

(Did I miss any Elmo memes?, let me know!)
