Ninten's first and only debut was in the first game of Mother, released in 1989, he can use some items in battle like baseball bats, boomerangs or slingshots.
Ninten compared to Ness or Lucas, hasn't offensive PSI but he has a good variety of defensive PSI that can be used in battle. Ninten's exclusive ability is 4th-D Slip, which lets himself and his party escape almost any battle. Other PSI abilities are DefenseDown, DefenseUp, Hypnosis, OffenseUp, PowerShield, PSI Shield and QuickUp. Ninten can do a PK Beam with the help of Ana too, as he uses it on Mother 1+2 commercial.Why should Ninten be in?
Because I think he has potential for a defensive moveset, and with the recent release of Earthbound Beginning in the E-shop I think Earthbound deserves another rep, of course there is more characters that are much important than Ninten and that deserve more to be in Crusade. But if you're searching a character with defensive PSI, then this is the perfect choice.Why Ninten over other Mother/Earthbound character?
Because one of the main things of the series is the PSI powers. Yes, there is more characters in the Mother/EB series that can use PSI, but Ninten could bring to the game a style of defensive PSI and there would be more defensive characters in the game, not to mention he is the main character of the first game and the one who started it all.What would his PSI Shape look like?
I think it would be like a rhombus or a triangle, since Ness uses circles and Lucas hexagons.What would his Weight be, how fast is he, what about his falling speed, can he Wall Jump? can he Crawl? [NEW!!]
He is a Light Character, Lighter than Ness and Lucas but heavier than Peach following Smash 3DS/Wii U Weight Ranking (I don't know Crusade's), he is faster than Ness but slower than Lucas following Smash 3DS/Wii U Speed Ranking, his falling speed is faster than Ness' but slower than Lucas' in Crusade. He can Wall Jump but he can't crawl.What could he bring to Crusade, how is his fighting style?
In Crusade he could be a Ness alt and use a set of items for his moveset, that could help him in battle has he doesn't have any offensive PSI at all. He could use some defensive PSI in his special moves that help him to be a better fighter. So the moveset I imagined would be something like this:
Note: With PSI powers/effect, i mean some PSI effects like Ness or Lucas' in the forward airEntrance: [NEW!!]
Enters in the stage while rotating in circles while falling in the stage, resembling Teleport β or the Photo Guy from Earthbound.Jab Combo:
Swing his arms two times with PSI effects and then does a kick without PSISide Tilt: Boomerang
Pulls out a boomerang that has bad distance but compared to link or toon link's it can multiple hits and can be used to get the enemy and do another attack. You can't control the direction of itUp Tilt:
Swing his arm upwards only one time and its a quick attack.Down Tilt: Rope
Uses a rope for attack, it paralyzes the enemy for a little amount of timeSide Smash: Slingshot
Pulls out his slingshot and launchs a rock.Up Smash:
Looking at the camera, holds his hands on the ground and does a upward kickDown Smash:
Holds his hands on the ground and does a kick with two legs at both sides, similar to Rayman's down smashDash Attack:
Pulls out his bat and does a up to down attack with itNeutral Air:
Same as Ness in Super Smash Bros. for N64Forward Air:
Ninten pushes his hands to the side, creating a shield that can reflect projectiles and protect Ninten from attacks, if someone is caught while doing the shield they'll recive damage.Back Air:
Swings his arm back and then does a kick with PSI powersUp Air:
Does a upward kick with a somersault looking at the camera.Down Air:
Looking at the camera, punches down with the palm of his hands, using PSI powers too.Pummel:
A kick with PSI powersForward Throw:
Punchs the enemy 1 time without PSI powers and the second time with PSI powers that paralyzes the enemy, then Ninten kicks the enemy.Back Throw:
Throws the opponent backwards, kicks him and uses the slingshot for hit himUp Throw:
Throws the opponent upwards and uses QuickUp to jump and hit himDown Throw:
Throws the enemy down and kicks him with PSI powersNeutral B: Defense Down
Throws a beam that reduces the enemy's defense, in other words, this attack lows enemy's stamina so the opponent is easier to kill, the stamina effect last 15 seconds and theres also a special effect that tells you when you are affected and when the move ends.
This beam is quite slow, so it is easy to dodge and can also be charged, more you charge it more far and fast it will go, and this beam can go trough opponents so it can affect all of them.Side B: QuickUp
Ninten does a quick dash, if you hit B again, he will quickly use hypnosis to put the enemy to sleep if the attack hits the enemy. It can be cancelled with any attack or jump, so it can lead to make some combos too. On the other hand, it can help Ninten to recover.Up B: Teleport [UPDATED!!]
This is a quite fun move to use, it has 2 parts. Ninten will charge energy to do Quick Up and then he'll run in the air in the direction you press, if you charge it to max he will run so fast he'll open a Teleport, then the teleport will dissapear and another teleport will appear in the direction you press, and Ninten will run out it, falling in a helpless state. If Ninten crashes with a wall, he will get burn and fall in a helpless state. It is a good kill move if the opponent(s) is (or are) caught while Ninten is running, the more you charged the move, the more damage it will make, however if you didn't charge the move at all and Ninten crashes with someone, he'll get burn and fall helpless, as a reference to crashing with people in Mother 1/2.Down B: PowerShield
Ninten creates a shield that can protect him from hits and reflects projectiles. The shield doesn't protect him forever if you kept pressing the b button, it disappears in 5 seconds.Final Smash: PK Beam [UPDATED!!]
Ana uses Teleport and appears in the stage, then Ninten uses 4th-D Slip to escape of the stage, and then they appear in the background (similar to Snake's final smash), and they both do a PK Beam that does 40% damage. After the move they both appear back in the stage and Ninten waves is hand like if he was saying ''Thanks'' to Ana as she leaves of the stage using Teleport.Taunt: Touch the Eight Melodies
Ninten pulls out his ocarina and plays the first 5 seconds of Eight melodies song, if you keep pressing the taunt button, and he plays the entire song, then Ninten heals 100% damage (easter egg).
Oh and if your asking, this is the song https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DODw3jbNc00Win: Asthma Splay [NEW!!]
Ninten pulls out an Asthma Splay and takes it, then smiles to the camera and does a ''Ok'' sign with his hand.
- Ness_64's Moveset:
About the design he could use, I thought he could use his design from the clay model, just with a headkerchief, for make him more different than Ness, he can also use 2 blue stripes and 1 yellow stripe, so that way he can have the colours from the Mother 1+2 commercial too.Support list (15 currently):
