"DON'T MOCK THE SHOCKER!", shouted the Shocker, as his Shockermobile ploughed into a couple in the middle of a serious make out session. It was another pair of Gladiolus Amicitia's and Anastasia's, and like all the other pairs, this couple was oblivious to the carnage surrounding them, not even noticing the Shockermobile headed straight toward them until just before it collided with them, the Shockermobile lurching to a sudden stop as the couple was flung almost comically into the air.
"Goddamn holograms" sighed the Shocker after he stepped out of his vehicle and surveyed the damage to his front bumper. "I don't have insurance on this!" he whined. He looked over to the injured couple, cringing at the broken neck on 'Gladiolus'. It was a pretty gruesome sight, even as a distorted, shimmering image, for the hologram was rapidly failing. Mercifully, it shut off suddenly; the damage from the impact of the Shockermobile being far too forceful to survive. The Anastasia hologram was doing much better, however, seeming to only have suffered a few scrapes. She was sobbing over the now-disappeared "corpse" of her lover.
"How could you do this? How could you take him away from me?" she sobbed.
"Hey lady, you were standing in the middle of the street! All you dumb holograms do is stand around kissing! Weird robots have been running around slaughtering you guys and you can't stop yourselves for even a second to notice! It's really weird and inconsiderate!" the Shocker angrily fired back.
"I'm... a hologram?" she sniffled, her sorrow over her dead lover rapidly disappearing, as her memory unit quickly finished the process of reformatting to remove all traces of her dead beloved.
"Yeah, I dunno. Don't ask me. I don't know what's going on. I'm not even supposed to be here! The world was supposed to be ending, and New York was under attack, so I hightailed out of there in my Shockermobile. But then everything went white and I woke up here!" he explained. "I distinctly feel like I've fallen between the cracks and been forgotten in the midst of some cosmic reset of not only my universe, but of the multiverse itself!"
'Anastasia' didn't understand a word of what he was saying, and it all sounded like a bunch of dumb comic book bullshit anyway. "So uh... what were you shouting about not mocking the uh, shocking?" she asked.
"The Shocker, don't mock the Shocker. That's me." he replied.
'Anastasia' stared blankly.
"... I'm the Shocker." he repeated.
'Anastasia' continued to stare.
"... umm?" she mumbled.
"I'm Spider-Man's deadliest foe! I almost got him, a couple times!"
"That's... nice?" she managed.
Even in this weird place with a bunch of brainless holograms constantly making out with each other, he couldn't get any respect! The Shocker frowned, which went unnoticed because he was wearing a full face mask.
"And someone was mocking you?" asked 'Anastasia'.
"Yeah! It was those mean robots! They said my costume was dumb! And that I was dumb too!" cried the Shocker.
"You do look pretty ridiculous." she replied.
"You're one to talk!" he shouted back.
'Anastasia' looked herself over, regarding her ludicrious outfit, and shrugged in agreement.
"And anyways, it protects me from the effects of my gauntlets!" whined the Shocker.
"It's insulated to protect you from electric blasts?" she asked.
"What? No! My gauntlets don't shoot electricity, they shoot out concussive blasts!" he answered.
"Then why are you called the Shocker?!?" she questioned.
"B-b-because my gauntlets fire shockwaves!" he stammered.
"Then it's a really dumb name! And confusing! Like it's some weird bit of trivia that nerds would pull out to hold over other people!" she fired back.
"Well, it's worked for me so far! I've never had to change it! Trapster used to go by the name Paste-Pot-Pete, and no one holds that over his head! ...I mean, I guess they do, but they don't do it to his face!" complained the Shocker.
She pressed on, "OK, whatever. So the robots made fun of you and you got in your car and drove away crying, or something?"
"Yes! I mean, no! ... I mean, kinda! I didn't cry! B-because they were wrong! My costume is smart and p-practical!" he sputtered.
"Practical, maybe. But definitely not 'smart'" she said, rolling her eyes.
"What do you mean?" he asked.
"You look like you fucked a roll of Bounty paper towels." she replied.
The Shocker considered this a moment, and then activated his gauntlets at full strength and blasted her into a wall. Her spine audibly cracked, and the holographic image that made up her being crackled out of existence. He sighed. Unlike a lot of his fellow supervillains, he wasn't really into murdering, but holograms didn't really count. Still, they were realistic enough to make killing one unsettling.
As the Shocker walked back to his car, he quickly ducked out of the way of a Chevy Malibu barreling down the road. Its passengers were yelling at him but he couldn't really make out what they were saying. The perils of wearing a heavily padded face mask that covered his ears, he supposed.
He got into his car, and it mercifully started without any issue. He gripped the steering wheel and turned his car around, heading back into the mass of kissing holograms. His thumbs caressed the toggle switches on his gauntlets.
Yeah. I don't think I've ever heard of that either. Or maybe I've just never used it after all this time. It doesn't make any sense, though, since anything that can be hit by a projectile will already be hit by a projectile, unless a hitby or nothhitby sctrl prohibits it.
I just thought the hitflag parameter of the hitdef determined the type of state p2 had to be in for the hitdef to work.
But then again this is MUGEN and a lot of useful tricks are not documented. =/
If you leave the first argument of the ATTR parameter blank, the hitdef will not be affected by reversaldefs, but the hitdef will work as normal. Useful if you don't want moves to be countered or projectiles to be reflected.
