Ridley, The Space Pirate General, finally joins the fray!
First and foremost, this wouldnt be possible without StarWaffle's Charizard Vertex. He deserves loads of the credit since it is his vertex that we will be using. Although i did edit his texture a little. Mostly just fixing the color and making the backs of his wings purple instead of yellow.Current Changes
(Items listed which are not marked through still require images)
AAA - Moves forward with each attack. Third hit is now a bite Forward Smash - Now a forceful tail whip with a high knockback sweetspot on the tip. This will be edited again before i call it done though. At full charge it can kill every character at 0% damage. WAY too strong lol. Down Smash - Tail whip then head butt
Forward Air - A forceful bite
Down Air - Ridley's signature tail stab
Dash Attack - Spins across the ground
Down Tilt - Stomps, knocking the opponent upwards Neutral Aerial - Sweetspot and meteor added on tip of tail
Side Special - On the ground, Ridley shoots a fireball forward which explodes after a few frames. But in the air, Ridley shoots a fireball which curves downward as it goes. When you touch the ground after using it, Ridley automatically fires another fireball
Jumps - Changed
Size - He is now 1.35 x Charizard's size. Hitboxes and gfx on all attacks have been increased to take that into account. He is about half a foot or so taller than Samus. This is how he appears during the Melee intro video and the manga. The sizes of bosses always vary during games (Bowser) so they are not a good example, besides, i prefer the intelligent general Ridley over the mindless giant monster RidleyMoveset Changes
The first two claw swipes now have a huge graphic effect. The third hit is now a bite. This is most useful if you mix grab pummels and releases in with it to extend the combo
Charizard's stomp has now been moved to his Down Tilt instead of Down Smash. It has been weakened respectively of course
A forceful tail whip. Has a high knockback sweetspot on the tip. Also does damage behind him as the tail
moves back into its original position
Slams his tail behind him then bucks his head into the air. Both parts of the attack have different timing, trajectory and knockback. The tail knocks to the side, while his head knocks into the air.
A forceful bite
Ridley's Signature Tail Stab. Perfect for meteoring people who try to recover low. Just float it over the edge and enjoy lol
On the ground, Ridley shoots a small exploding fireball forward. In the air, Ridley shoots a curving fireball which staggers and does damage but does not knock. *This attack is still in development and its not considered finished*Current Progress
Aether (Animations and some PSA)
Weyard (Some PSA)
Cuddly-Metaknight (Aerial Side Special-Fireball)
SDo0m InCaRnAtI0n (Ground Side Special-Fireball)
Fliptocat (CSS Portraits and Pictures)
Get A Load Of This! (Video)WHAT WE NEED FROM YOU-Someone who can give him a pound similar to "Bowser's Down Special", as Ridley's Grounded Up Special
Basically, make him jump up into the air then pound instead of Fire Spin. Keep the air version the same though-Someone who can make a dash attack (similar to Ike's) over Ridley's Neutral Special
Its going to end up being his Side Special but I need it over his Neutral Special because i plan on swapping his fireballs with it once finished. Plus it gives you 3 animations to work with instead of 1 if you were building it on his Side Special
-Someone who knows how to fix the glitch which causes him to shoot a second fireball when he hits the ground
-Ideas for Down Special
-Ideas for the rest of the unchanged attacks (Up smash, Up Tilt)
-Testers. There arent any glitches or anything. I just need to know how to balance him.
-PICTURES. Seriously, the only camera I have is on my DSi. The results arent exactly good. I will need one picture for each changed attack plus a HUGE picture for the top of the page to showcase him
-VIDEOS!!!! After its finished, to show it off PLEASE
