PostSubject: The Rider (Furi) Discussion: What Will you Fight For?   Fri Jul 08, 2016 10:56 pm



Disclaimer: this character has no Nintendo relevance. The game he's from is very recent, and while it's been very well received, it isn't a massive hit. I'm very aware that there's little reason to include him. I still think he's got really interesting potential and would be a fun character.

Furi is a recent indie game for PC and PS4. The gameplay alternates between top-down twin-stick shooting and third-person hack-n'-slashing. Rather than mash through hordes of cannon fodder, however, the player will only face 10 increasingly intense bosses, each with several stages. Every aspect of the relatively simple gameplay is present from the start; the only thing that's changed by the end is the player's skill. Besides smooth, solid gameplay, the game boasts a fantastic soundtrack, a bright, neon, cyberpunk art style, and an intriguing, well-told story that pieces itself together slowly, building up to something the player may start to suspect halfway through.

The Rider himself is an enigmatic man who was imprisoned in a complex orbital prison for reasons I can't say without spoiling the game. In fact, I can't really say anything about who The Rider really is without spoiling the story. Suffice it to say that he's silent, unkillable, and extremely dangerous. He wields a high-tech katana and an energy pistol, in addition to his glowing, form-fitting armor

Furi's gameplay is all about precision and timing. In Crusade, The Rider would be a total glass cannon: fast, with superb mobility, and able to rack up huge damage, but taking far more damage himself than most characters. This is somewhat compensated for by his Neutral Special, but in order to make use of that, the player will need to be patient, attentive, and quick.

Jab/Combo: The Rider slashes with his blade, first sideways, then upwards, and finally he hops up slightly to bring the blade down in a swift overhead slice.
Side Tilt: The Rider fires a shot from his energy pistol. The shots do little damage, no knockback, and their rate of fire caps out.
Up Tilt: The Rider jumps and performs a fast kick upwards, followed by a light slash with his blade.
Down Tilt: The Rider forward-flips in place and brings his foot slamming down just in front of him.

Forward Smash: The Rider holds still with a hand on his sheathed blade and charges up. His armor glows blue while doing this, up to the brightest shade, and crackling electricity starts arcing around him. When the button is released, he dashes forward and delivers a powerful slash.
Up Smash: The Rider kneels with a hand on his sheathed blade, and starts charging. When he rises, he brings a knee up, potentially knocking an opponent into the air with him, and leaps straight up to perform a powerful arcing slice with his katana. If the player charges fully (the armor glows the brightest blue and flashes) the attack will do much more damage and be carried out incredibly fast.
Down Smash: The Rider charges up his energy pistol before firing it into the ground directly below him. If the shot isn't fully charged (the gun's glow is blue), three balls of energy will be launched from the ground in an arc. The balls are blue and can be destroyed by getting hit with an attack once, but do decent damage if they hit an opponent. If the shot is fully charged (the gun glows orange), five balls of energy will be launched, along with short shockwaves. The energy balls are orange, do more damage, and take more damage to be destroyed. If the balls aren't destroyed, they will continue on to the blast zones and disappear offscreen.

Neutral Special: The Rider parries with his blade. A successful parry will make The Rider's armor glow green briefly and restore a small amount of his damage percentage. The parry lasts for less than a second, however, meaning the player must time it perfectly to pull it off. Unlike a normal block, the parry actually stops any single attack, including a Falcon Punch, or a single projectile, but it won't be effective against attacks with multiple hits, such as Bowser's flame breath or any beam attack that lasts more than a second.
Side Special: The Rider dashes forward at such speed that he's essentially teleporting and leaving blue lines in his wake. This does no damage in and of itself, but it can be used to escape tricky situations and set up attack combos. It also passes through opponents and attacks. The distance is determined by how brightly The Rider's armor is glowing blue. At no glow, The Rider can only jut forward a little bit. There are three shades of increasing brightness, corresponding to how far he dashes. The armor starts glowing when The Rider successfully hits an enemy, and gets brighter when he lands another hit, up to the third shade of blue. When The Rider is hit, however, the glow disappears completely. Any time The Rider dashes, including dash-based attacks, he is susceptible to falling off ledges, but isn't left helpless.
Down Special: The Rider holds still with a hand on his sheathed blade and charges up. His armor starts glowing orange, with electricity crackling around him. Once he's finished, he flashes, and can move freely again, with his armor staying orange. His next attack, whatever it is, will be boosted greatly in damage and will dash in the direction of the attack. Being hit while glowing orange will remove the effect. Forward Smash or any projectile-based attack will cancel it.
Up Special/Recovery: The Rider aims down with his energy pistol and starts charging a shot. A blue targeting line will extend from the pistol. When the line turns orange and The Rider flashes, the pistol is fully charged. Firing will launch The Rider up into the air. The player can either fire three times with no charge, and get subsequently less air, or fire a single charged shot. Three normal shots or one charged shot will leave The Rider helpless.

Neutral Air: The Rider parries mid-air. The parry works the same as on the ground.
Forward Air: The Rider slices downward with his blade.
Backward Air: The Rider quickly fires a burst of three consecutive shots behind him with his energy pistol.
Up Air: The Rider thrusts his blade straight up for a short moment. Spikes at the tip.
Down Air: The Rider fires a spray of shots down with his energy pistol.

Grab: The Rider slams the hilt of his blade into an opponent and grabs them with his spare hand.
Forward Throw: The Rider dashes a short ways forward and throws the opponent when he stops.
Backward Throw: The Rider rolls backward and kicks the opponent hard.
Up Throw: The Rider slices up with his blade, rising into the air slightly.
Down Throw: The Rider holds the opponent down and fires a blast with his energy pistol into them.
Pummel: The Rider fires his energy pistol into the opponent repeatedly.

Dash: The Rider dashes a short distance with his blade held out sideways in front of him.

Taunt: The Rider flourishes his blade and sheathes it.

Final Smash: Perfect Parry &  ExoSuit
To initiate the Final Smash, the player must successfully pull off a parry. The window for this parry is twice as long as normal. Parrying will cause The Rider to hit the parried opponent with a powerful string of slashes before leaping into the air and donning his red, mech-like ExoSuit. If The Rider parried a projectile, he will teleport to the opponent who fired/threw it and initiate the slashes. In the ExoSuit, damage is reduced, and Neutral Special will still parry. All other attacks will be a rapid series of energy blasts that do very little initial knockback and slightly more damage than the energy pistol, but fire extremely fast and continuously. Eventually, The Rider will stop being able to fire, and will start glowing. Once the glowing stops and the ExoSuit flashes, The Rider will unleash a kamehameha-esque beam of energy that goes to the blast zones. The ExoSuit disappears, and The Rider's cape returns.

Visual Feature: When The Rider's percentage goes over 75%, his armor starts to glow red, except for when he parries and heals, or when he charges up a dash or attack.

I like the idea, but he is WAY too new. That being said, he seems to be pretty unique and, while I haven't played the game, he reminds me of a "Modern Ninja Gaiden". Give him some time; I am pretty sure he will have a decent following of more "Hard-Core" players (I am not one myself)

Yeah, I don't expect him to be considered all that seriously. I mean, I do think he'd be an awesome inclusion, but he's not gonna be priority for anyone. I kind of liked the mechanics of his character more than anything. Still, a lot of people really liked the game, so I don't think a sequel is unlikely.

Furi's not really like Ninja Gaiden all that much (can't really speak about the XBox reboot from way back when, but from what I know that isn't like it either) The camera is always fixed, and when you're not doing bullet hell twin-stick shooting, you're doing lock-strafe close-quarters swordplay focused on parrying, dodging, and taking advantage of openings in attacks. Conceptually, the swordplay is most similar to Ocarina of Time. Obviously, in execution, it's more like Devil May Cry or Metal Gear Rising.

I meant that more in more of a "It is just you and your skill, nothing else, that makes the game challenging" sort of way.

His concepts and mechanics are very unique to where it would probably be odd for them to be on another character.

Another thing about suggesting characters (mainly new/obscure ones) is that it opens them up to others. I haven't heard about Furi until now, and I am genuinely interested in it.

Turns out it was the first game in my Steam Queue, so there's that

Oh, okay. Yeah, in that way it's very much so like Ninja Gaiden and other tough oldschool games.

I highly recommend it! Blast to play, satisfyingly challenging, and it's free on PS Plus right now, if you have a PS4.

While I won't support him, this was an excellent moveset, Ottsel.

No support. Exceptional moveset though. But you said it yourself, just too new.

I'd give a full criticism but damn am I tired. But please use the effort you used on this moveset on every moveset cause this is something newbies need to look at and admire.

Thanks, Braystar. You too, Shaq. Especially coming from you, I appreciate the compliment. I totally understand the not-supporting; this character's got absolutely nothing going for him in terms of reasons to be in Smash. But I'll definitely try to make future movesets like this one as far as quality is concerned!
