Info: Apollo is a tech genius who used to freelance but now works exclusively in Maddicorp's Tech and Weapons department. He is a hero at heart, and has been deceived by Maddicorp into believing that Maddicorp is a heroic, malevolent corporate entity that is actually trying to capture the SHADES in order to protect the people and the subjects themselves. His knowledge is vast, which is the reason for such a complicated deception on the company's part, since he is a great asset.

Gameplay Info:

-SHADEs-style gameplay (chain combos, launcher, air chain combos, Level specific supers, Desperation Move, etc.)
-Normal has 5 specials, one a helper robot with 3 distinct uses
-EX Has 6 specials and less reliance on helpers and projectiles
-Both have 3 supers and a DM
-AI by Kamekaze is fun but not insanely hard
-Original voice acting
-Ion helpers for Apollo are destroyable

Bit of an error in his profile:

"He is a hero at heart, and has been deceived by Maddicorp into believing that Maddicorp is a heroic, malevolentcorporate entity"

The proper word would be "Benevolent"

I tried both regular Apollo and EX-Apollo. As always I am very impressed with your work Sean. Both versions are great fun to use and easy to pick up.

Also, the Apollo's Chariot super is epic :D

Thanks, the guy who did the voice was worried no one would like it, but I think it works quite well for thw character.

- All Hard Punches, Hard Kicks, Medium Punches, and standing MK do chip damage?!?  Why?
- All his low attacks can be blocked high.  You don't have to crouch block.

-The chip damage is just one of the decisions I made for SHADEs characters. I know most Capcom and SNK characters don't have this, but SHADEs characters do. It was just a gameplay choice I made.
-I've seen plenty of characters where crouch attacks can be blocked high, except for sweeps. It's also a necessity given the dial-a-combo nature of the combos that SHADEs characters have. It would be really hard to block a chain combo since they can chain a standing LP to a crouching MK, which would mean the opponent would have to have lightning fast reflexes to switch from a standing guard to a low guard fast enough to block both attacks. It would be too easy to be cheap. I forgot to make his sweep only guardable low, though, so I will fix this.

The character is so serious, but it's so over the top and geeky too.. seriously?  10/10 for the voice actor!

Both the normal and EX versions are a lot of fun to play with... so far,  Byrne has been my favourite of the SHADEs 2 characters, but I'm sure I'll really enjoy Sabotage all over again. :)  Really looking forward to more from you. :)

I disagree with that. Unless you can chain into a 1 frame overhead, then a chain combo can be crouch blocked for the entirety.

It wasn't benevolent?
