Sometimes You Don't Have to Change the WorldAres is not what I imagined her to be. The great man of myth, muscular and imposing, shining in his armour, with crested helmet and mighty spear, does not stand before me. Instead I face a young woman, hardly more than a girl. She is soft and delicate, with eyes so large they will soak up the world, and skin like spun glass, that glitters in the darkness. A warm glow radiates from within her, not quite visible, but strong enough for me to feel the heat on my face.Sometimes You Don't Have to Change the World by C-A-Harland
The sound of traffic wafts up to us from the street far below. Heavy clouds block out the night sky, reflecting back the poisonous orange of streetlamps and office blocks. The rooftop is high above it all, and we are invisible. That’s why I chose it, to be alone. The last thing I expected was a visitor, proclaiming to be a god.
“Ares?” I scoff, looking her over with something I imagine to be petulance. If not for the fact that she was so decidedly un-human, and that she had materialised on the rooftop with n
...and she's here to eat tuna with Kirby--I mean, smash some people up!
Adeleine (from Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards, 2000)
-Lightweight character, but heavier than Kirby
-Quick-moving character with high, albeit normal-quality jumps
Neutral: Downward cut with brush, upward cut with brush, then a brush twirl.
Side tilt: Swings across with the brush.
Up tilt: Punches palette upwards.
Down tilt: Low jab with back of paintbrush.
Dash attack: Flying side kick, holding up palette and brush.
Forward smash: Reaches back with both palette and brush, before striking.
Up smash: Adeleine whacks above her by swinging her palette in an arc over her head.
Down smash: Spins around her with her paintbrush, drawing an orange ring around her. Captures enemies and traps them until the attack is finished, but has low knockback.
Neutral aerial: Adeleine flails her brush in front of her and kicks her legs. The brush does more damage than the legs.
Forward aerial: Swings brush in an arc in front of her.
Back aerial: Sweeps brush behind her.
Up aerial: Throws palette above her head.
Down aerial: Rapid kick-jabs straight downward.
Grab: Adeleine grabs the opponent with her brush hand.
Pummel: Whacks opponent over head with palette. Kind of slow.
Forward throw: Violent shove directly in front of her.
Back throw: Paints on the opponent’s face before thrusting him/her behind her.
Up throw: Knees the opponent in the stomach before giving a brush-uppercut.
Down throw: Suplexes the opponent and mashes the palette in his/her face.
Floor attack (front): Somersault ending in sweep with brush.
Floor attack (back): Backwards somersault.
Floor attack (trip): Leg sweep.
Edge attack: Shoots three paint globs across the floor before getting up.
Neutral special: Paint Glob—Adeleine hurls a blob of paint in an arc. Explodes in a burst of paint upon contact, and slows down anyone it touches.
-Custom 1: Paint Bomb—The paint gob explodes and deals damage in addition to the impact damage, but does not cause slowing.
-Custom 2: Paint Lob—Adeleine hurls the blob straight forward. Has a different flight path and deals more damage.
Side special: Paint Charge—Adeleine flails her paint brush and runs across the stage, yelling.
-Custom 1: Hyper Paint Charge—Faster with more damage, but significantly more difficult to control.
-Custom 2: Paint Locomotion—Adeleine takes a bit of time to warm up, but at max speed damage output is about twice that of the normal Paint Charge.
Up special: Paint Ribbon—Adeleine flies into the air by circling around herself with a ribbon of green paint. Reminiscent of ribbon dancing.
-Custom 1: Paint Tornado—The paint ribbon extends further and draws foes in, at the cost of vertical recovery.
-Custom 2: Paint Drill—Adeleine flies up, hovers for two seconds, then abruptly drills back down. Extremely dangerous to use when used far away from ledges.
Down special: Art Ally—Adeleine produces a canvas and paints a Waddle Dee, Wheelie, or Gordo. Waddle Dees run straight forward. Wheelies ram through all obstacles and characters without stopping. Gordos bounce on the ground and act like King Dedede’s.
-Custom 1: Ink Infantry—Adeleine only paints Waddle Dees, but can summon three at once. Does not suffer from stale move effect.
-Custom 2: Gordo Throw—Adeleine only paints Gordos. There’s more lag time in between paintings, however.
Final Smash: Kracko—Adeleine paints Kracko, who then floats to the middle of the stage and fires lightning bolts in all directions, before finishing with four crossed bolts horizontally, vertically, and diagonally.
Up taunt: Musical notes trail from her as she shifts from left to right; the implication is that she’s humming.
Side taunt: Produces a sketch of one of the characters.
Down taunt: Lies down on the ground, kicking her legs and doodling in a sketchpad.
-Turned around, painting something; it turns out to be a portrait of herself giving the victory sign.
-Spins around and whirls paintbrush towards the camera.
-Giggles giddily and jumps up and down.

Pit: Hey, that’s Adeleine, right?
Palutena: Yes. One of Kirby’s friends.
Pit: I heard she's an amazing artist. Her paintings are so lifelike!
Palutena: So lifelike that they can actually come to life; a fact that she takes advantage of in battle. Most of her attacks rely on her artistic talent. Don’t get too carried away marveling at her work.
Pit: Maybe I’ll ask her to do a portrait of me afterwards. Like, with glorious wings, and rippling muscles, and rock-hard abs…
Palutena: That would… probably scare her.
Pit: More so than the time she was possessed by the Dark Matter?
Palutena: Okay, maybe not that badly, but still. Ask for a normal portrait.
Pit: Fine... Moving on. How do I beat her?
Palutena: Adeleine has two projectile attacks, both of which you can reflect back towards her. If you can send a Gordo back at her, that'll really ruin her day. ...Don't expect her to take commissions after that, though.

Edge attack: Flips over and starts firing until the button is released.
Neutral special: Machine Gun—Sami fires rounds from a machine gun.
-Custom 1: Speed Shooter—Faster shots, but doesn't cause the opponent to flinch.
-Custom 2: Sniper—Sami's gunshots are more powerful, but because each one launches, it's more difficult to rack up damage.
Side special: Mech—Sami fires a rocket from a bazooka. Travels a short distance and explodes.
-Custom 1: Mech Propeller—Shoots Sami forward with the bazooka.
-Custom 2: Heavy Mech—Fires a slow-moving projectile that pierces shields and deals big damage.
Up special: Commando Launch—Sami jumps into the air and fires below her for extra distance. Sami can then press the attack button again to do a drop kick.
-Custom 1: Bazooka Launch—Sami fires a bazooka below her immediately. Goes further than standard extra boost, but doesn't cover as much vertical distance overall. Sami can still drop kick, however.
-Custom 2: Hovering Machine Gun—Sami jumps into the air and fires below her to hover for about 5 seconds. Bullets do less damage individually than other two variations, but cover more horizontal distance than vertical.
Down special: Tripping Rifle—Sami fires a series of shots that will trip characters on the ground.
-Custom 1: Flashbang—Does less damage, but stuns enemies.
-Custom 2: Piercing Rifle—Can shoot multiple opponents in a line, and does more damage at the expense of the tripping effect,
Final Smash: Double Time—A group of infantry and mech units appears to assist Sami. They stand in a line and fire rapid-fire in a cone-shaped area at Sami's command. About halfway through, they double their damage output.
Up taunt: Thrusts fist into air, saying "Hooah!"
Side taunt: Cocks her gun.
Down taunt: Fires at the ground, and says "Wanna go?"
-"Never cross a commando!" Sami slings her gun on her shoulder and turns away from the camera, before looking triumphantly back at the camera.
-"Area secured!" Sami spins her gun and slams the butt on the ground.

3. Blue clothing, to match Blue Moon,
4. Green sports bra to match Green Earth.
5. Yellow clothing, to match Yellow Comet.
6. Black clothing, to match Black Hole.
7. Colors resemble Eagle.
8. Colors resemble Lin from Days of Ruin.
Viridi: Ugh. These humans are always waging war against each other! Did you know that the human race is the only species on Earth whose members kill each other on purpose?!
Palutena: Well, I think any soldier under an infantry specialist like Sami would be safe. Sami is very good at rallying troops for maximum efficiency in capturing bases and defeating her enemies.
Pit: She looks like she can hold her own pretty well herself, judging by that big weapon she's got slung on her shoulder.
Palutena: Sami specializes in ranged combat, using her gun to attack from afar. But when she gets up close and personal, you'd better move out of the way.
Pit: A gun? D'you think maybe she'll let me give it a try?
Palutena: Probably not, Pit.
Well, I'm just a regular Korean-American who likes trains--- AAAAAAAAAAAAAGGGH!!!!! |
