So now King K. Rool and Simon Belmont are confirmed for Smash? It seems that Nintendo is trying their best to appease the fans without that poll fiasco they had before, which went totally out of control.
And here I am, wishing that Earthworm Jim, Astal, and Shyna Nera Shyna would be in Super Smash Bros. I'd ask for NiGHTS too, but I dunno how he would have a proper moveset, and plus I don't want to be greedy.
This is what I had in mind if they were playable.
Entrance Animation: Jim pokes his head out of the ground, then suddenly his Suit jumps in, grabs him, and sticks him inside.
B Attack: Plasma Gun. Jim pulls out his trusty plasma gun and fires it repeatedly. However, it has limited ammo, which could be shown on the screen somewhere. If he uses it up, it will just make a puff of smoke, and he will have to wait for more to be recharged. Every second he gains back 1 ammo, can have a maximum of 100, and starts out with 50 at the beginning of the match. Also like the Super Scope, or Megaman's Metal Blade, he can aim where he shoots it.
Side + B: Head Whip. Jim uses his worm head like a whip and strikes an enemy with it, doing damage and knockback. Also like with Zero Suit Samus, it can be uses to grapple onto ledges if used correctly.
Up + B: Helicopter Head. Jim spins his head around rapidly like a helicopter and flies a little bit, damaging enemies who get close. Similar to DK's Up + B, he can control his direction as he does.
Down + B: Mega Shot. Jim will load his Plasma Gun with a Mega Shot, making the next time he fires it shoot a powerful shot that pierces through enemies.
Final Smash: Pocket Rocket. Jim pulls out his Pocket Rocket and then flies across the stage, wrecking everyone in his path. The rocket flies randomly, but it will always end on the last platform you were previously on.
Home Stage: New Junk City
Entrance Animation: Astal bursts out of the ground with crystals around him, then his bird friend flies in and accompanies him.
B Attack: Mighty Punch. This move is similar to DK's Punch, as it can be charged and released. A fully-charged punch makes a bigger difference than a lesser-charged punch, especially if you wait for Astal to take some hits. A Full-charged punch also has a crystal effect.
Side + B: Super Breath. Astal Huffs in air then blows a massive gust of wind. Does no damage but pushes enemies back hard. Similar to Mario's FLUDD attack, or Squirtle's Water Gun.
Up + B: Bird Ascent. Astal's Bird friend grabs him by the collar and helps him fly a bit up. Enemies who try to hit him in this attack get countered by a nasty peck.
Down + B: Rock Throw. Astal grabs the ground and suddenly pulls out a massive rock, which he heaves over his back. He can then throw it like a normal item, and it does a lot of damage. Like Peach's vegetable throw in a way, except with a bigger item. However, while holding the rock, he moves slower, can only jump once, and cannot use any other attacks except this until he throws it. Also hitting him too much causes him to drop the rock, and then it breaks. If you are lucky, Astal might instead pull up a massive Crystal that is stronger.
Final Smash: Bird Raid. Like one of Astal's special attacks in the game, Astal throws his bird friend who then ricochet's around the room at a super fast speed, hitting enemies caught in her path for massive damage.
Home Stage: Crystal Palace
Entrance Animation: Bug, Shyna's navigator, appears and opens a warp. Shyna jumps in through the warp and then Bug leaves through his own warp. Identical to the way she enters and exits most of the stages.
B Attack: Sloth Shots. Fires a 3-shot rapid fire burst of her default Finger Gun.
Side + B: Wrath Bomb. Shyna fires a mid-ranged bomb from her Wrath Parasite, which travels in an arc like a grenade and explodes on contact.
Up + B: Winged Hat. Similar to Meta-Knight's Up + B, Shyna does a diving glide, and gains only some vertical distance, only damages enemies at the start of the dive.
Down + B: Lust Poison. Shyna has her Lust Parasite produce a cloud of toxic gas that damages enemies that come in contact over a period of time. Enemies that leave still have the poison linger for a few seconds.
(Shyna would also have a jumping style similar to that of Kirby, Meta-Knight, DeDeDe, Jigglypuff, and Pitt. Every time she jumps, she sort of flaps her wings and glides).
Final Smash: Spirit Bomb. Shyna uses her special Spirit Bomb attack with a random Parasite. Normally this would consume the parasite, but for Smash, she would immediately gain a new one. The Final Smash would be randomized between one of seven different Parasites. Sloth makes the Spirit Bomb fire a massive burst of shots similar to her B attack but stronger. Lust makes a good portion of the stage get covered with poison gas. Greed causes enemies to be locked onto and get homing hits attacked at them. Wrath makes a series of explosions around Shyna that do heavy damage. Gluttony causes a piercing laser to lock onto an enemy and hit them, and anyone else caught in its path. Envy Causes Wing Blades to circle around Shyna and strike enemies. Pride causes Boomerang Projectiles to circle around the stage. The one that she uses will be chosen at random.
Home Stage: Pauro Castle
And to top it off, I thought of Assist Trophies to go with them too.
-Earthworm Jim Assist Trophy: Peter Puppy. Peter Puppy will trot around the stage and produce items at random. He can take damage, however once he does get it, Peter will transform into his monster form and go berserk, no longer giving out items but now attacking foes. After a moment passes, whether or not he went into his monster form, Peter vanishes.
-Astal Assist Trophy: Geist. Astal's Rival, Geist, appears on the stage, then zips to the background. There he will use his Mega Crystal Attack, which fires a large crystalline prism with massive blast radius, hitting a random area on the screen. He will use this attack 2-3 times then vanish.
-Shyna Assist Trophy: Dynamis. Dynamis, the Fish-Girl like Guardian Angel Boss, will appear in the background. She then swings around her massive arms while going "SMASH SMASH SMASH," doing this for a while before disappearing.
*sigh* if only they'd be in it.
