Here's a very bare bones version of Michael Myers in Capcom form. Maybe I will add more later. I know it's not much, but I figured it was time that Mugen got a 2D version of Michael. Special thanks to Shubuster and Spriter's Resource for the sprites I used as a base. Also, I do not take credit for creating this character as he was created by John Carpenter. All I am taking credit for is editing the sprites Capcom made to put him in their style of animation.

I've gotten a couple of emails from people asking to use my sprites in levels and I don't care if you want to use them, that's fine, just please mention my name somewhere cuz I spent a lot of time on these. If someone wants to program this character, it would be cool to see. But if you do, you should post a video here so we can see him in action :-)



Just wanted to explain these:

- First three rows:  "Curse of Michael"
Michael slashes forward. This is similar to the move Yamazaki has. The strength of the button pressed determines how many slashes he does. Dragon punch motion backward + punch is what I would give him for this one. More slashes can be added for a super if needed. Maybe call it "Revenge of Michael" after Halloween 5. This could be done with a double quarter circle motion forward command.

- Fourth row: His walking backward animation
- Bottom row: His blocking crouching animation, his crouching damage animation and his turning around animation.

*Also, one thought I had for his win animation is that he could walk off the screen, sort of like SF3 Q

EDIT

forgot to say too, for his slash special, it should destroy projectiles to make him look more bad ass and to set him apart from yamazaki



EDIT

The slash could also look like this, with the outer slash going first

Thanks a lot man, I really appreciate it. Glad someone liked it.

EDIT

Added these Yamazaki frames as a bonus to make his CvS slash move more like his KoF one:

Thanks dudes. As for customized moves, I was thinking he could have two more specials: A dashing uppercut similar to Balrog/M.Bison's and a damaging grapple move similar to Yamazaki's 'Bomb Bopper' where he dashes forward and then grabs the opponent with the lead arm, raises them up and stabs them.

Had these animations in mind for bases:



I'd call the dash move the "Hallow-Slash" and the grapple move the "Hallow-Stab"

Michael Myers looks awesome.. 1 of Mike's signature moves is him sticking the knife into someone and lifting them with 1 hand

Maybe you can incorporate that

Would love to see this coded

Wouldn't even need to find voices because he doesn't talk, just breathes

Him slowly walking onto the screen and stepping on a pumpkin smashing it to the sound of his theme music can be 1 of his intros

Yeah I want to add that move later.

I like the idea of having him walk out to his intro music, but I was thinking that instead of having him smash a pumpkin, he could be chasing Jaime Lee Curtis. I saw that Prime Op had made a sprite edit of her on his site (pictured on the left) and was thinking it would be pretty easy to edit Athena's running sprites (also pictured). Curtis could run onto the screen and stop and look back, and when Michael walks on the screen, she runs away, all while the Halloween music plays.



EDIT

Also the music should only cycle about 3 times, like the first 10 seconds of this video:

The terrordome characters didn't really have any movesets. I saw that they gave him a move where he throws a tombstone which was cool, but I will probably leave that out because I never saw him do it in the movie. I was thinking of having some sort of theme to his moves. Like maybe making him a grappler or a charge character like they did in Capcom and SNK.

Major update: Improved the stance, added jumping and crouching attacks, touched up the sprites by editing the chest, ankles, shoes and wrists on most of them, and added Jaime Lee Curtis for the intro (using Prime Op / Scroll Boss's edit of her). Will explain more later, I'm tired:

Ha, thanks dude. Just finished this and added it to the sprite sheet above:



If it were up to me, I would have this done with a charge command and maybe do the same with his dashing slash special. Just give him those two specials for now. For the knife toss though, I would have the strength of the button pressed determine the angle of the projectile as opposed to the speed (Light Punch being upward, Medium punch being across, and Heavy punch being diagonally downwards).

The sprites on the bottom are his recovery sprites as he grabs a new knife.

And here are his basic attacks, will explain them below:



^
1st Row: His weak, medium and heavy standing punches. I would have the Heavy one slide forward a little bit, like Q from Third Strike.
2nd Row: His weak, medium and heavy standing kicks.
3rd Row: His jumping weak punch (left) and his jumping medium and heavy punches (right), for now.
4th Row: His jumping weak kick  (left) and his jumping medium and heavy kicks (right), again, for now.
5th Row: His crouching weak punch (left) and his crouching medium and heavy punches.
6th Row: His crouching weak, medium, and heavy kicks.

* I figured for him, they could do like Capcom did Balrog / M. Bison and recycle some of his basic attack sprites into specials. But I think he
should have really bad ass pokes. For right now, his only 2 specials are the knife toss and forward slash. For a super, I would just give him a
multi hit dashing slash move and maybe a super where he throws lots of knives? Just a thought.

Also, I saw that someone had released him for mugen. It looks good, but I would make a few changes. First here's the video:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uUzExQeTagA

^ For his intro, I would have him walk onto the screen as Jamie Lee Curtis runs away. For his win pose, I would have him walk off the screen like SF3 Third Strike Q does. Also, the win pose he gave him was supposed to be his turning around pose. But not bad to begin with.

Also, if you modify the feet, you can recycle this into a jumping heavy kick:

I am looking foward to this sprite sheets along with the Crow's.

Well thanks a lot, I appreciate it. Yeah, it would be cool to see it done by October 31st. Can't wait to see the new movie. Just finished this. This may be my last update on it for a while. It is a dashing uppercut, it should function just like Balrog / M.Bison's dashing uppercut. This is his main anti air. I've added it to the sprite sheet above as well:



So let's review. This is what I would recommend for his specials / supers:

Special 1:  (Charge back, then forward + Kick) A dashing slash move similar to Yamazaki's.  It hits anywhere from 1-3 times, depending on the strength of the button pressed.

Special 2: (Charge back, then forward + Punch) Sonic boom! Michael Throws his knife at a fast speed. The strength of the button pressed determines the angle of the projectile.

Special 3: (Charge down, the up + Punch) Michael does his dashing uppercut. The strength of the button pressed determines how far he travels.


* I also want to give him a super where he dashes forward, grabs and lifts the opponent with one hand, then stabs them once. Was thinking it could either be blockable and done with a half circle command like Kyo's. Or it could just be a 360 move like Zangief's.

For his supers:

Super 1: Michael throws lots of knives at the opponent. This is similar to Mai's super where she throws the fans. Done with a double quarter circle forward command.

Super 2: Michael dashes forward and does lots of slashes. Command doesn't really matter. A double quarter circle back command would work.

* I also want to give him a super, similar to his move from Terror Dome, where he jumps into the air and grabs the opponent. Then he stabs them over and over again while holding them on the ground. Think Yamazaki's Guillotine, but instead of sliding and stomping on the ground, he holds them in place and stabs them.

Well, looking forward to the next update. Would love to see the video. Hopefully the programmer will post it here.


Also, his supers could be named after the movies: "Return of Michael," "Revenge of Michael," "Curse of Michael"

For his specials, could use names like: "Hallow-strike," "Hallow-slash," "H20 attack" "Knife Throw"

EDIT

Added a win pose, that way he doesn't have to just walk off screen. The top row are all of the sprites. The bottom is just showing you how it could work:

Ok, I lied. Here is his last special. I was debating on whether or not to give him move similar to Yamazaki's Guillotine, or to just have this move be both a special and a super. I think the special should only hit once and be really powerful, like on the level of Yamazaki's Bomb Bopper in CvS where 5 of those can kill a Ratio 2. If this were made into a super, it should hit multiple times as he stabs the opponent over and over again. Just  a thought. Added this to the sprite sheet above as well:



Also, I was thinking, now we have Michael, Eric, Ash, and Samara from the Ring for Mugen... Have any other characters been made from horror movies that are 2D? Was thinking that if we could get at least 10, we could have a decent horror fighting game. Was thinking Marvel Super Heroes but with Horror characters.  I think my next ones will be Chucky and his bride, but I'm not sure when that will happen. They would be easy though because they are small characters. After that, maybe Pinhead.

Here is what I was thinking for the roster:

Jason
Freddy
Ash
Samara
Eric
Michael
Pinhead
Leatherface
Chucky
Tiffany

^ It would resemble Street Fighter as well. Ash and Samara would be as they are. Eric would be a fast character with projectiles -- Like Benimaru with keep away skills. Michael would be the Guile / Balrog / M. Bison charge character that moves slow but hits hard and has a long lifebar. Jason and Freddy would be the Ryu and Ken of the game with Shotokan-type move commands and both would have 2 horizontal specials and a rising uppercut. Pinhead would be like a cross of Magneto and Blackheart in that he would be quick with combos but also have great keep away skills. He would also be the boss and I would try to add an 11th character so that he would be the hidden boss, was thinking they could do the roster like Virtua Fighter 2, or even have 9 characters and do it like Virtua Fighter 1, with one hidden boss and 8 playable characters.  Leatherface would be like the Zangief of the game with a spinning chainsaw move (From his Mortal Kombat appearance) and some grapples involving the chainsaw. Chucky and Tiffany would be the little fast characters, maybe would play similar to Ibuki.

Characters I would NOT include:

Ghostface - Story wise he doesn't stand a chance against any of the other characters and most of his moves would involve knife attacks, and we already have Michael for that.
Carrie - Again, most of her moves would involve knife attacks. Also, she would be in a white dress and Samara already has that and she's already been made.
Pumpkinhead - It would be cool, but he would be too hard to animate and would involve lots of scratch spriting.
Selene - From underworld. Again, she would be cool, but probably too similar to Eric because of the use of guns. I would rather have Eric than her.

Characters I would want to include:

Elvira - With bounciness rivaling Psylocke / Mai. She could work. Watched her movie today and she has moves she could use. She would also be a good female character. She could even be a sub boss to Pinhead. I would use Morrigan to edit her.
Shira - The vampire woman. She would be another female character to add to the roster and her sword would be cool. Also she is sort of unknown so it would be good to have a lesser known character.
Pennywise - The clown from IT. Prime Op did an awesome edit of him and I think he would fit nicely. Also, we would need a Stephen King representative. The ballons would be fun to use too.

Found these on Spriter's resource last night. Figured the knife on the ground could be used for the knife toss when it is blocked. Might go back and add these later. Idk. They aren't really essential, they are just the icing on the cake. Also, I saw that someone made him run in the videos, so I won't waste time with that. These are just more damage sprites, the crouching turn around and the forward and backward dash:

Michael with updated sprites is almost ready to play. I also am doing a minor color separation on him so he can have palettes (about 50% complete color separation).

This latest video shows the new intro and the winpose by SiL3Nt J already in:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6LR5X5UQQ40

I will be adding/changing all the newer moves as well. Happy Halloween ;)
