That was probably the most fun I've had with this game in a while. I've been taking my losses in Quickplay too close to heart, so it's nice to be able to hop in an arena and just have fun.

Oh by the way, that Squirtle taunt in that last match wasn't meant to be rude. I was actually a tech that shortens the Pokemon Switch timer.

Same here. It's always nice duking it out in an arena rather than going on Quickplay to struggle to get into Elite Smash.

I gotta admit though, I was laughing my *** off when the 1st matches we did ended up being :ultbowser: dittos. I was not expecting that.

And don't worry, I know about the Squirrel taunt tech.

GGs to you and ShotoStar ShotoStar .

That's what made me go Bowser seeing as you two went Bowser I decided might as well do it too and GG's.

I personally laughed during the :ultroy2:/:ultroy: fight when the crowd started chanting.

That was a close one. You got the cinematic finisher on me twice and I still somehow managed to survive. I'm honestly not sure how I made the comeback there.

Why can I hear Richard Steven Horvitz’s voice coming out of this guy?
That's kinda the idea. He's super proud of his demon powers, always calling himself the "Prince of Evil" even when it's not needed.

"I, The Prince of Evil, demand your hottest dogs!"

Well we might be getting an Announcement for a Direct tomorrow or the day after, The thread got locked cause somebody couldn't keep their private photos in private Who seemed to be an Obvious troll, and Random discussions. Otherwise not much.

Yeah it really was. All it took was one perfectly timed counter w/ 160% rage to kill me (gotta love that rage mechanic :bee:)

But yeah, I had a great time facing you and ShotoStar ShotoStar .

:ultsonic:"I'll take that if you don't want it."
I wonder what the first Sonic thing to establish that Chili Dogs is his favourite food was.

*looks it up on Sonic Wikia*

"Sonic the Hedgehog's fondness for chili dogs is something that originates in western territories, first established in the animated series, Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog. Even before that, the earliest canon reference to Sonic's enjoyment of hot dogs (rather than the more specific chili dogs) was in Sonic the Comic #5, where Sonic is having three hundred hot dogs as a part of his breakfast. In the years since, the chili dog has been established as Sonic's favorite food in just about every Sonic-related media, eventually making its way into the games' canon as well. This makes the chili dogs an interesting (and somewhat rare) example of a staple from the comics and cartoons "bleeding" into the games. "

Oh, so Sonic liking Hot Dogs comes from Sonic the Comic... them being Chili Dogs specifically comes from AoSTH. Wait...

"The earliest canon reference to Sonic's enjoyment of hot dogs was in Sonic the Comic #5, where Sonic is having three hundred hot dogs as a part of his breakfast."

Three Hundred Hot Dogs for breakfast!?

God Emperor Yoshi God Emperor Yoshi , I think Yoshi has a contender for Infinity Stomach Space.

Ask Noipoi, he’s facing his character.
Noipoi Noipoi , I hope your Jack can crush rocks with his bare hands, otherwise he stands no chance.

Wait...

Let's not forget Sonic can run at supersonic speeds, it's no wonder that he has a metabolism to match.

Jack doesn't bite, but he can hurt you in other ways.

Yeah I'm fine with that, but for some reason that gets into very weird and uncomfortable territory when it's applied to Sonic...

Though Tails has it worse it seems

I'm gonna be slightly serious/critical here:

That description faintly reminds me of another demon prince...
Laharl from the Disgaea series.

The personalities are not exact and the designs are definitely different... but I do see traces of Laharl in your description of Jack.

I suggest doing a little bit of research to get some inspiration. It may help give you a better idea of what you want and don't want to do w/ the character in your webcomic.

On a more positive note: I love the beta design and love the concept behind the character. I'm excited to see more of Jack in the future. Great work!
