If that happens, we will regulate them as a veteran but keep our iteration of that character rather than what’s in Smash.Job 29:
Third Part Pick: Doomslayer
Throughout both fighter passes, Doomslayer has continued to be a highly requested pick worldwide. He's absolutely a gaming icon at this point, and his attacks - though very violent for a E rated game - are powerful and can be toned down enough for smash. Unlike characters like Joker and Cloud, the DOOM series started on Nintendo way back in the 90s. And just recently made its return with the remaster being ported a few years back, and Bethesda going out of there way to make sure Doom Eternal game to the switch despite the graphical intensity. Doomslayer has much better odds then some may think.
Wildcard Pick: Cranky Kong
Hear me out. Ever since K Rool there have been two DK newcomers that have been top requests. Dixie and Funky have been heavily demanded, so what makes the most since? Adding Cranky Kong of course! His primary mode of attack would be his cane. He could bounce on it like a pogo stick, use it in his smash attacks. I think Cranky has earned his status as a joke character ever since the 2013 game awards when him in Tropical Freeze was the big reveal of the show, and honestly, he's absolutely iconic enough to deserve a spot in the game, even if people don't realize it.
A quick aside, Venus of the Desert Bloom , what happens if one of the characters we vote in happens to be part of the remain DLC? Will we revote on that character? Also (not that it really matters at this point) I am all in favor of a Bowsers Castle stage. Quite frankly its still mind boggling we haven't gotten it after all these years.

Octoling from Splatoon, an Echo Fighter of Inkling.
They would use the same attacks and weapon types as Inkling, but use different specific weapons that would affect how they play.
Their new Final Smash would be Booyah Bomb. Octoling hovers in the air while holding a large ball of ink. A reticle appears on screen (a la Giga Bowser Punch or Lightning Chariot), and when B is hit again or time runs out, the Octoling throws the bomb to that spot, where it explodes in a large, swirling burst.
- Inkbrush -> Octobrush. Slower, but longer reach.
- Slosher -> Explosher. Slower, but more powerful.
- Blaster -> Grim Range Blaster. Slower, but longer reach. (Grim was specifically chosen due to how similar the appearances of the default and Range Blasters are.)
- Splattershot -> Octo Shot. Functionally identical.
- Splat Roller -> Dynamo Roller. Slower, and doesn't bury opponents, but does more damage and gives super armor during it (though only temporarily).
- Splat Bomb -> Suction Bomb. Does more damage, but doesn't roll and lingers for longer before exploding.
If the game would seek to avoid multiple characters using the same ink colors in a single match, a full eight new ink colors would be necessary. One potential lineup, mostly utilizing colors from Splatfests, is listed below. (Assume that Octolings would adhere to the same "odd = female, even = male" pattern as the Inklings.)

ECHO: OCTOLINGS CLAIM THEIR TURF
Octolings Splat Jump onto the battlefield, as Echo Fighters of Inkling. The Octarian society is more militaristic than that of the Inkling, so their changes alter their playstyle to be more aggressive. Instead of using the Splatoon 1 Splattershot for their attacks, they use the Splatoon 2 Dapple Dualies (this is a cosmetic change, however). The rest of their stuff is based on Splatoon 2, as the Inklings are largely based on Splatoon 1.
Property Change: Ink Effect. Unlike Inkling, where knockback is the primary effect of Ink, raw damage is what Octolings get from it. A fully inked opponent takes x2 damage, and it decreases by .1% every 10% the opponent is un-inked (a 90% inked opponent takes x1.9, for example. Everything else is identical).
Down and Back Air: These are largely the same, except they now use ink. This increases their Sweet Spotted damage and knockback (D-air goes to 17%, B-Air goes to 15%) as well as applying ink to opponents. To compensate, it increases endlag on these moves, and if you don’t have any ink and try to do these attacks they do literally nothing.
Neutral Special: Dapple Dualies. Octoling fires forward with both of their Dapple Dualies. As these are two weapons, the damage output is increased (1.5x). Like the dualies in Splatoon 2, Octoling can roll during this attack, which is pretty much a standard roll. To compensate, lag is increased and it decreases Ink at a faster rate.
Side Special: Dynamo Roller. Octoling’s Side Special is an interesting variation on Splat Roller. It moves incredibly slowly, about how much Splat Roller moves inkless. It also uses up ink very fastly. In contrast, it does huge amounts of damage (25%), skips the burying and just kills at high percents, and meteors if done in the air.
Final Smash: Inkjet. The Octoling uses Inkjet, one of the Special Weapons from Splatoon 2. Functionally, it’s almost Identical to Diddy’s old Final Smash, with the Octoling flying around and shooting ink.
Gengar will be our new Gen 1 Pokeball Pokemon!Job #24: Octoling Echo Status
I'll go with Option 1 on this. My take on Octoling is that while all their normal attacks are effectively the same as Inklings (only using different versions of the same weapons), their special attacks are different, utilizing types of weapons not represented in Inkling's moveset.
Here's my list of specials.
Job #26: Golden Sun Spirits
- Neutral Special: Splat Dualies: These are similar to Inkling's Splattershot, but dealing less damage. However, you can dodge while using them similarly to Joker's neutral-B.
- Side Special: Splat Brella: The Splat Brella has much more significant differences than the neutral-B does, but it still controls a little similarly. In this move, Octoling pulls out a Splat Brella and opens it up. Holding B will keep the Brella out while you move. Unlike in Splatoon, it doesn't fire any shots, but running into enemies will still damage them. The Brella protects you from the front and can actually reflect projectiles as well. When you release B, the canopy of the Brella shoots of, becoming a slow projectile you can approach alongside.
- Up Special: Super Jump: This is... the same.
- Down Special: Heavy Splatling: This is completely different from Splat Bomb, being a chargeable projectile aimed slightly downward. It inks the ground when used. It does heavy damage at full charge, but takes a while to get there.
- Final Smash: Booyah Bomb: Octoling starts levitating and starts charging up a massive glowing ball of ink, before throwing it forwards in a devastating attack. Players that hit the taunt buttons (whether performing the move or not or whether they can actually taunt or not) will cause the Bomb to charge quicker.

Lol. I’m so sorry. I need to do this stuff when I’m not half asleep. My apologies everyone. I would rectify this mistake and I apologize to Evanwoo for this mistake. I promise to be more on top of things concerning this.Hol up, why's Mr. Mime our winner? Gengar got more votes
It’s okLol. I’m so sorry. I need to do this stuff when I’m not half asleep. My apologies everyone. I would rectify this mistake and I apologize to Evanwoo for this mistake. I promise to be more on top of things concerning this.
Maybe I could use a few assistants to help manage this....
On that subject, Menardi's name is misspelled as well.
Pfft, some people are NEVER satisfied.On that subject, Menardi's name is misspelled as well.
Of course! A lot of people tend to resubmit characters.Sorry if this is a dumb question but if a character is not selected during this job can we submit the character again for the next character job? (if the character applies of course.)
Thanks so much! I will be adding these to the main page. That being said, while I’m capable of doing, I’m stretched pretty thin currently and I’m doubtful that I can continue making these later on down the road. That being said, could someone do this for our newcomers?I made the Character Tabs for all of our newcomers so far: https://imgur.com/a/xhhstJs
(art credit to NibrocRock and Team Destination for renders)
There are also a few typos in the spirits, Zebstrika is misspelled and some of the Dark Dawn spirits say "Dark Age"
Sorry for all the nitpicking haha
For Spirits, I did a three whole sets of them for certain characters, for the hypothetical scenario that they were playable in Ultimate, be it as base game (in Celica's case), or DLC (in Sora and Sakura's case). As for our E3 heavy-hitters:
Job #30: E3 reveals
My E3 picks are as follows:
3rd party: Sora, whose trailer involves him battling Dharkon when all seems lost.
1st party: Ring Fit Trainee, whose trailer involves her receiving a Smash invitation during a workout.
Both of their movesets are briefly demonstrated during the E3 presentation.
Please don’t forget Perkilator. They submitted Sora and Ring Fit Trainee. I missed that as they were in spoilers so mine is voided. I will remove it from the list and I will probably be either removing my original entry to changing it. That being said, thank you sooo much for doing this! This really helps when I compile the information. That being said, we will begin voting in less than 12 hours. Probably via Strawpoll again, two polls total.Here is a list of JOB 29's CHARACTERS SO FAR:
