Think of this as a spin-off to the Design a KH Boss thread, only this time coming up with ideas for new Dissidia roster additions. I guess a few guidelines are in order:

A. Character must come from a Square-Enix work, I've decided to broaden it beyond just FF to make things more interesting. For the purposes of this thread KH characters are eligible despite being Disney owned but only for OCs.
B. Basing the moveset on Duodecim gameplay is preferred. Like sure I suppose you could make it based on NT, but why?
C. Try to have some sort of theme/gimmick to the character like the PSP games did (I.E. Bartz being a mimic, Exdeath being purely defensive, or Emperor's traps)
D. As a default, use playstation controller layout for when needing to mention specific buttons. Obviously a hypothetical new game could )& should) be multi-platform but let's inputs simple for now.
E. Because all currently available gaming hardware (Be it console, mobile, PC, or streaming) are well above PSP's technical limitations, feel free to to include stuff that wasn't possible before. E.G. like how Sephiroth couldn't have his Safer form as an EX Mode & Yuna's aeons only had a part of their bodies visible.

Mallow (Super Mario RPG)

NMPA6lX.png


Theme: Weather Wizard. Uses the forces of nature for wider reaching AoE attacks that do less damage as a trade-off. His HP moves deals damage equal to 80% of his current BP.

Brave Ground Attacks
-Stretch Jab. Default. Extends his rubbery arm to punch far away. Can be a 3-hit combo with 1st hit being a right jab, 2nd a left jab, & 3rd both fists.
-Stretch Backhand. Level 4. Swings his arm in a wide arc in front of him.
-Sonic Cymbals. Level 20. Bangs 2 cymbals together for an AoE surrounding Mallow.
-Froggie Stick. Level 13. Uses his stretchy arm for a farther reaching overhead blow with a wooden club bearing the head of a frog.

Brave Air Attacks
-Punching down. Default. Stretch punches downwards.
-Cyclone Fists. Level 10. Spins in midair with his long arms damaging anything within range.
-Air Sonic Cymbals. Level 20. An aerial version of Sonic Cymbals.
-Air Froggie Stick. Level 13. An aerial version of Froggy Stick.

HP Ground Attacks
-Thunderbolt. Default. AoE spell that covers the space in front of him with lightning bolts rained down from a cloud that spawns above. Pressing Square a 2nd time right before the the lightning strikes will create more bolts over a slightly larger area.
-BP Rain. Level 7. Spends a percentage of his Brave points to cast a rain cloud over him that gradually build up BP over time.
-Snowy. Level 23. Builds a snow man that expands outward, hitting the opponent if they're nearby. Quickly rotating the stick as the spell is cast increases the AoE.

HP Air Attacks
-Thunderstorm. Default. Spawns 4 clouds surrounding the opponent which all shoot lightning towards the center where said opponent is.
-Tornado. Level 16. Creates a large tornado in front of him.
-Star Rain. Level 25. Spawns a bunch of glowing stars around him which all shoot forward. For legal reasons this is the move that's the most heavily altered from the source material.

EX Mode: Cumulonimbus. Expands into a larger & denser cloud with a dark grey palette. His lower half disappears & his cloud form has a faster "running" speed. HP moves lose their damage penalty.

EX Burst: Psychopath. Reads his opponent's mind to learn their weak points & strikes them with many Thunderbolts. Mechanically this has the player scrolling through textboxes of the opponent's inner monologue with X until they find a line like "I hope he doesn't hit my ****", & then press Square to to confirm. If done correctly, Mallow finishes his burst with Shocker, a single huge lightning bolt shaped projectile coming down on the opponent.

Multiple stratus cloud platforms in the sky with buildings on them as additional platforms. The largest stratus in the center has the towering Nimbus Castle ( which would look a good deal more impressive than pictured above). The Omega version is darken with high winds sweeping in at random. The buildings besides the castle now have thorns that cause Brave damage if a fighter crashes into them due to the wind.

I once wrote a Chocobo character on the Final Fantasy wiki ages ago (back when 012 wasn't out). It was rather popular there, so I'm gonna be lazy and repost it here. :p

The noble Chocobo has decided to join the cause and fight the forces of evil. Because it’s not very smart, it can’t chain its attacks, but he makes up for it in strength and will. The Chocobo is easily among the fastest of all characters but suffers a bit in the defense department. Because its wings are underdeveloped, it can’t fly (though it can glide). It is mostly a grounded fighter with few aerial attacks. Its regular costume is the familiar Yellow Chocobo with Gold as its Ex-Mode, with White (and Black/Purple in Ex-Mode) as its alternate. Its Ex-Mode requires an additional setup like Gabranth, only here all the moves are the same. Its just that moves that are usually Ground only can be set up as Aerial moves as well. It can’t equip weapons and all of its armor is exclusive to itself. When the Chocobo is computer-controlled, nearby allies can mount it and receive all of its movement benefits (including in Ex-Mode) while retaining all of their own attacks.

Bravery attacks:
Choco Kick (Ground) The most basic attack. Not very strong, but very fast and causes Chase sequence.
Choco Barrier (Ground) Chocobo bestows Protect and Shell on itself, lessening Brave damage.
Choco Esuna (Ground) Heals status effects (if they’re ever added) to self and close allies.
Choco Recharge (Ground) Takes 1000 Brave points (or less if you don’t have enough) and give them to a nearby ally. If no allies, gives Chocobo 1000 Brave points (has a charge time).
Chocobo Stomp (Aerial) The Chocobo comes crashing down and stomps the enemy 3 times.
Choco Pellets (Ground/Aerial) Chocobo lets loose a stream of pellets of little balls (or whatever those were).

HP Attacks
Choco Cure (Ground) Chocobo heals HP equal to half its Brave points. Can heal nearby allies. Has a charge time.
Choco Meteor (Aerial) Basically a copy of Sephiroth’s Black Materia, but the Brave damage when charged is a lot lower and it has a smaller area of effect.
Boss, Help! (Aerial) Basically a copy of Sephiroth’s Black Materia, this time featuring a Fat Chocobo instead of a Meteor
Choco Beak (Ground/Aerial) A straightforward attack where the Chocobo charges the enemy with his beak
Choco Guard (Ground) Bestows Protect, Shell and Regen on itself. (In case of battles with multiple characters, also affects nearby allies) Duration is shorter than Choco Barrier and is only learned at lv. 99. Regen does not stack with Ex-modes Regen. The move lasts for 6 Regens and requires Bravery over 2500. It gets halved regardless of the amount when used.
Choco Flame (Ground/Aerial) The Chocobo breaths fire in front of himself. Short range but a wide area of effect. When it connects, the enemy is set ablaze for a couple of seconds and receives extra damage .

Ex-Mode
"Bred to perfection!"
The Chocobo turns golden (black in alternate costume) and receives Regen. Its wings grow to at least twice original size enabling it to Fly as it has always dreamed of doing. He also receives a major Speed upgrade (definitely becoming the fastest of all) and all of its attacks receive a greater range and can be performed from the air. Pressing R + [] allows it to strike with its wings for an HP Attack.
Ex-Burst
"Chocobo Rush!"Chocobo summons his friends for a stampede. During the stampede, random buttons will appear on a random Chocobo in the stampede (one at a time, up to 5 times). Each successful hit causes Brave damage. When you miss one, the attack will immediately end and the enemy receives HP Damage. When successfully performed, The Fat Chocobo will appear at the end rolling towards the enemy (think Indiana Jones) for a sixth hit with higher Brave damage than the regular Chocobos. All the while this is happening, various scenery flashes by in the background, starting with plains; a river; a mountain; the ocean and finally: the sky.
