Hey all, Jango here. I hope you are all having fun with the Champ Build and our revamped take on Mr. Satan. I wasn't lying about joining Team Z2 back on April 1st, but my involvement was actually being the head coder for Mr. Satan! Early on, the team agreed that his development (and my involvement) should be kept a secret from the public until release, so there was a lot of stuff that happened behind the scenes that you normally would've seen in other character WIPs. Therefore, I'm here to get you all caught up on what you missed, and show you some of the thought process that went behind it all!
There's a lot to talk about, so I spoilered a bunch of sections that you can read at your own leisure!

So those are some of the big things that came up in mind for Mr. Satan. If y'all have any other questions about him, feel free to ask or let me know what you think. The Champ's Build might be out, but there are still possibilities for the community to contribute to the big dude (additionally, I'm working with the staff to make sure said efforts are rewarded!). Speaking of WIPs, I will also take this time to announce that I'm teaming up with Daeron to make Krillin, so look forward to that! While I don't have anything prepared for everyone at the moment, keep your eyes peeled, because I'll be addressing it soon!
Thanks to the Z2 Team for welcoming me to work on this project, and thanks to all of you for downloading and supporting this character. I was lurking Maximilian's stream when it was on, and just seeing all the enthusiasm for Mr. Satan, both on camera and in-chat was really inspiring to me, and I'm really thankful for the opportunity to come onboard and do this.
And thanks to Daeron for doing this piece days before Satan's release!
And with that, I think I've earned myself a nap :P
Just launched Satan's project thread (http://mugenguild.com/forum/topics/satan-z2-project-179359.0.html) if you wanna contribute palettes or talk the future of the character, but for now, time to respond!
(http://orig12.deviantart.net/e0ed/f/2017/101/6/f/hercule_s_pal_colors_by_agentofdestiny-db5fsi3.png)Your arrows, top to bottom, are "inside of mouth," cape (as seen in one of his intros and the helicopter winpose), and baseball bat (for focus attacks). HOWEVER, do not edit the baseball bat colors. Due to how the palette mapping works, there seems to be a bug with the leftover bat reverting to whatever palette 1 is after being dropped.
Also Dan palette's better, although I'd personally tint the darkest shade to be slightly more red.
Once again i have to tell you good job on Satan. He is well done and fun to play as. I look forward to seeing your work on Krillin and the little bit we've seen so far seems awesome. You can tell this was a labor of love from some one who is a fan of the character. I do think you are giving my boy Dan the short end of the stick tho lol. Him and Satan are actually very much a like in multiple ways. Both are for all intents and purposes usually depicted as competent compared to most of their universe but severely outclassed by the extraordinary fighters who are the focus. Dan doesn't fall short for lack of trying but his training was cut short when it was found that it was all for the purpose of revenge. Both are comic relief in a other wise more serious setting. Hell, they both even had people throw fights for them. At their core, for all their silly ways they are better than they appear. Satan cares for the people and planet and Dan was a son who wanted to avenge his father probably knowing full well he could have met his end after he didn't receive full training and still went to challenge Sagat.Valid points on Dan, will definitely be consider this going forward.
As for the rest, Krillin's been pretty unique to work on so far, and while I can't say too much at the moment, he'll definitely shake things up a bit with his playstyle. And thanks for your kind words on Satan!
I didn't expect this type of post to be made... and I'm glad I've seen it. I fucking love seeing the details and thought process to things... Thanks for sharing. Same! I always find the "why" to be extra-fascinating, so being able to do the same for Mr. Satan is kinda fun for me!
Saw the entire post. Good job making this unexpected specially after that farmer thread. Lots of secret and hard work. Another nice addition to the Z2 team!Thanks! Farmer was cooked up last minute, but after talking it over with the team, we thought it would be funny if I legitimately announced being on the team on a day when NOTHING would be taken seriously XD
Sadly, False SSJ Goku and Mustache Vegeta are still AF characters. OR ARE THEY?!?!?!
