"NYEH HEH HEH HEH HEH HEH!!!"Who the heck is Papyrus?
Why, the Great Papyrus is a master chef, nimble tactician, puzzle master, and most importantly, a Cool Dude. Along with his brother Sans, Papyrus hails from Undertale. Originally, Papyrus hoped to capture the protagonist to turn him in and claim his spot in the Underground's Royal Guard, but depending on the player's actions, Papyrus either becomes one of your closest friends, or just another soul to be crushed. He's very passionate about puzzles, and has an intense disliking for junior jumbles.
Why Papyrus over Sans?
Sure, Sans is the stronger of the two brothers. He's undoubtedly the hardest boss in Undertale. But, Sans is always just kinda... standing there spewing out one-liners. Papyrus, however, is the real star of the show! Full of passion and enthusiasm, Papyrus definitely brings a lot of charm with him anywhere he goes. And it's not like Papyrus is a complete push over. His attacks bear a strong resemblance to Sans' and he even has the power to turn souls blue! Besides, Papyrus was most likely holding back in his fight. Seriously hurting someone is just not who he is, and there is no way he can bring himself to do that to someone. This might make you think "that's a reason right there not to include him", but it's not like someone refusing to hurt others has stopped anyone from getting in before...
What Can Papyrus Do?
I'm glad you asked. Papyrus showcases a wide range of abilities during his fight, but other abilities from outside his battle could also be implemented as well. He can manipulate gravity as shown by turning the protagonist's soul blue, and has an array of bone attacks that can be slow and predictable, but also very fast and quick to catch people off guard. Here are some ideas that popped into my head:
Papyrus can use his electricity orb from his maze puzzle to zap other players.
Seeing his color puzzle somehow coming into play, whether it be a part of his moveset or just his final smash would also be really interesting to see. Now that I think about it, this being his final smash would be really cool. Players could scramble, trying their hardest to complete the puzzle under a certain time limit. If they succeed, they survive the attack. If not, Papyrus deals a devastating finishing blow.
No matter how you look at it, Papyrus offers a lot of moveset potential, from both his battle moves and overworld abilities. Hell, you could even throw his famous spaghetti somewhere in there, damaging players due to its frozen solid state.
Paprus is definitely one of the most memorable characters from Undertale due to his charming, and often bizarre personality. Not only does he offer a lot to Smash moveset wise, but he also conveys Undertale's humorous aspects perfectly. Sans may be more likely than Papyrus, but that doesn't mean we can't support him! Sooo... anyone else out there want Papyrus?
