Well it’s a slow day at work and I’ve had this idea in my head for a while now, so I’m going to tell you about what Mint’s
My idea for Mint’s
Mint’s Music Mode is more long-ranged and slower than Board Mode. In this mode, Mint carries a microphone on a stand and uses it in her attacks like a bat or staff. Her smash attacks have
Special: Mint blasts a soundwave from her mic. The longer the button is held, the more damage and range the attack gives off.
Up-Special: Mint transforms into a set of musical notes that fly about. It’d have the same sort of control and speed as the bolt from Ness/Lucas’ PK
Side-Special: Mint’s mic turns into a guitar, and she slides forward while strumming it, doing damage to anyone she passes. If the button is held, Mint stays in place while shredding the guitar, causing musical notes to shoot out in front of her.
Down-Special: Transformation. Takes about 55 frames to switch to Board Mode.
In Board Mode, Mint swaps out a mic for a skateboard. This mode is much more physical, and has great aerial movement, with Mint performing tricks in the air to do damage. Very good for racking up damage, before switching to Music Mode and finishing people off.
Special: Mint does donuts on her skateboard in one spot. The faster you tap the Special button, the faster she goes, before ending with a finisher that does extra damage. Has slow start-up.
Up-Special: Mint shoots upward on her skateboard. She can’t use the attack button, but if you rotate the movement stick, she’ll change the angle on her skateboard, doing damage to anyone that gets close.
Side-Special: A grind rail appears in front of Mint, which she hops onto with her skateboard. If you tap the attack button while grinding, she’ll spin, doing extra damage to anyone trying to approach her.
Down-Special: Transformation. Takes about 55 frames to switch to Music Mode.
Mint’s Final Smash changes depending on what mode she’s in. In Board Mode, she’ll smack you around with her skateboard at high-speed, Great Aether style. In Music Mode, she hops onto a stage and starts an impromptu concert, with the crowd that swarms in to watch damaging the enemies on screen.
Each palette would be based on other Vocaloids:
- Mint, Green
- Queen, Grey
- Hatsune Miku, Light Blue
- Megurine Luka, Pink
- Ren/Lin, Yellow
- Kaito, Dark Blue
- Meiko Sakine, Red
- Gumi, Green/Orange
And just speculating, she’d probably be Mid-Low Tier based on the
This will never happen obviously, but we should still get Miku in Smash Bros…preferably with the leek.
Alright, see y’all.
