Post by: KingPepe2010 on June 04, 2014, 06:17:46 pm
Dig Dug
(http://i.imgur.com/PIIfjsT.gif)
Representative of: Namco
First Game: Dig Dug (port released in 1985)
Progress: 100%
Playstyle: Grappler with both close-range and long-range grabs.

What's left?:
-Nothing

Strengths:
-Has ways of easily closing the distance whether it's getting close to the opponent or bringing the opponent over.
-Hook Toss gives him a long-range option while also bypassing projectiles.
-Strong damage output considering both his grabs and combos.
-Far reaching pokes that do quite a bit of damage.

Weaknesses:
-Needs to either drop his charge or use meter to bypass projectiles reliably.
-Only reversal requires meter
-Only his standing punches can chain together, his other basic attacks can't.
-Close command grab isn't reliable due to the startup.

Moveset:

Basics

Specials

EX Specials

Super Attacks

Helpers:
Fygar (4 hits):

Mappy (2 hits):

Pac-Man (3 hits):

Palettes:
(http://i.imgur.com/b8Ji0Ng.png)
1 - Default
2 - Galaga
3 - Warpman
4 - Mappy
5 - Tower of Babel
6 - Battle City

Extra:
*SQUISH* - Rock Drop and Earthquake will cause the opponent to be flattened on death.

POP - If the opponent is within KO range during Pump and Blow, they'll explode upon death.

Silly old Sky Kid! - If Mappy is on-screen when the opponent is defeated, Sky Kid will arrive late to the match and shrug.

Um... The third helper should be PAC-MAN. :|

Here are the attacks he can use(Yes, it will use NES Pac-Land Sprites or maybe the Pac-Land Arcade sprites with the NES Palette)

Standing - PAC-MAN will take out a bonus fruit and throw it at the opponent. The longer you hold the assist button the more powerful the fruit will be.(Yes, it goes in level order) [Cherry,Strawberry,Orange,etc.]

Crouching - PAC-MAN will place a hydrant in the middle of the stage and will fire water shots at the opponent. After 2 or 3 shots the hydrant will go away.

Um... The third helper should be that tank from Battle City.

Here are the attacks he can use.

Standing - Tank use the grenade power-up and explode the opponent.

Crouching - Tank Shoot some bullets and the tank enemies appear and shoot ether.

3rd helper could be Miru from Pac and Pal. Like what was planned with that one other Dig Dug for Mugen. Also, isn't his name Taizo Hori?
Title: Re: Character: Dig Dug

@supersonicmix: ...maybe Pac-Man but I'd rather have him have different attacks from his SSB4 self. I'll think about it.

@AntonioQuirino: That could be a possibility but I usually like to keep the sprites to how big they should actually be and uh, the tank would be rather huge compared to Dig Dug and might make him a really easy to hit. (Doesn't help when almost all helpers only have 3 hit points)

@マリオ·ピザ: Miru was arcade-only iirc. And yeah, Taizo Hori would be his real name but considering the fact this name way after his NES port, I'm keeping his name to "Dig Dug".

You want moves away from Pac-Man's SSB4 self? Okay :D

Standing - Pac-Man will take out a bonus fruit and throw it at his ally, healing a random amount of health(Depends on the bonus fruit). If it hits the opponent it will act as a attack but it doesn't do that much damage. (500 Power) (15 Second Cooldown)
Crouching - Pac-Man will take out a power pellet and throw it at his ally making him invincible for 5 Seconds. (1000 Power) (30 Second Cooldown)

What do you think?

 ...I think I might actually consider that now to be honest. That ain't bad. (also I should fool around with cool down times for helpers too)

 ...not sure what you mean by that.

Apologies for the necro-bump, but I had an idea for a 3rd helper: Galagan Commander (From "Galaga")

Stand: The commander appears off-screen and moves across the top of the screen in the direction Dig Dug is facing. It moves left/right just below the lifebars, only making 2 separate shots. At that giving time it starts firing: 1st shot angles towards a specific location that is the median between Dig Dug and his opponent; the 2nd shot angles towards the enemy's head. 1st shot deals more damage than the 2nd shot but the 2nd shot deals more chip damage than the 1st one. Mainly used for pressuring your opponent. (Costs 0.5 Meters; Cool-Down of 8 sec.)

Crouching: The commander appears off-screen and moves across at a lower altitude than the standing version. Once the commander is at a certain distance with its target, it shoots a tractor beam in front of it. The beam stays out for only 0.5 seconds, or until it gets blocked. If it successfully hits the opponent, the opponent is remained stuck inside the tractor beam for 1 second, or until they get hit out of it. This is mainly used for extending combos, and catching your opponent off guard. (Costs 0.5 Meters; Cool-Down of 12 sec.)

This is an interesting helper to have in Dig Dug's arsenal, cause of how viable it is. Even though it's good to pressure your opponent, it doesn't do much/any, damage/chip, and has a somewhat long cool-down(s), mainly because of how useful this helper is.

...honestly I like the idea of that. I'll take it into consideration.

The Galaga commander is a good idea(never seen him)i have a idea too, the super star force pilot.

Standing: The pilot appear and shoots several bullets at the opponent

Crouching: The Pilot could use the Solar Lamp to Stuns the enemy for 4 seconds

Crouching: Genesis Spawn a Helicopter (louis) and he fires a missile

cool screenshots (it is just me or the second pallete just look like robot pallete from L.Runner?) btw u didn't choosed the third helper yet?
if u didn't here's a suggestion:

Mikey From Goonies 2

Standing: mikey throws a molotov cocktail into a short distance ahead of him, and it will crash onto the ground with a burst of flame.

Crouching: mikey catches his slingshot and fires a shot at the enemy.


and i was thinking when u make the story mode, u put cutscenes ninja gaiden style.

The palette used in the 2nd image is actually from Warpman. (In the 4th image, Dig Dug is using the 2nd player palette from that game) As for the third helper, I'm debating between Pac-Man and the Galagan Commander. Also, Goonies 2 was developed by Konami, not Namco.

I like how I see Dig Dug with some moves from Alex and a move from Blue Mary.

I do apologize about the lack of updates recently, I've been busy with many other things outside of FCF and didn't get much time to work on it. I will say that sometime this month, a new update will be out with Dig Dug available.

This looks awesome! It'll be hilarious to see the characters get blown up, by Dig Dug's Pump & Blow. XD
And take your time on this, it's your project anyway; you're going to need it. ;)

I have an idea for pump and blow: when the character blows, his popped corpse falls on the ground and dissapear after 3 seconds.
