(Upon request since he was already finished, this topic is meant to fully explain this character as well as allowing any discussion regarding him)
Urban Champion

Representative of: Nintendo
First Game: Urban Champion (November 14, 1984)
Progress: 100%
Playstyle: Close-ranged power character.

Strengths:
-Scary damage output.
-Has so many ways to start a combo
-Has a decent defense game. (2 special reversals, several anti-airs)
-Above average stamina lets him take hits decently well.

Weaknesses:
-Outside of helpers, he has almost no options for dealing with the opponent at long ranges. (he needs to close the gap)
-For a rush down character, his mobility is quite horrible. (Walk and dashes are slow, short jump is a bit of a blessing since he's harder to anti-air but also a curse since he struggles jumping above some projectiles)
-While he does have options to get closer on the opponent, those options have notable recovery.
-Basic attacks don't reach very far.

Moveset:

Basics
  • Low Smash (Back + Punch) - Quite a bit of startup but it moves Urban Champ forwards and it can be cancelled off of or linked into a light basic attack.

Specials
  • Quick Dash (D, DF, F, Punch or Kick) - Urban Champ turns around and dashes at the opponent. Punch version has a shorter, faster dash while the Kick version is a farther but slower dash. A followup attack can be preformed depending on the button you press:
    • High Punch (Punch) - Comes out the fastest and is safe but it's the easiest to block.
    • Sweep Punch (Kick) - Needs to be blocked low and it knocks down. Comes out fast but is unsafe.
    • Head Smash (Hold Up) - Needs to be blocked high. Does the most damage and is the safest of the three but the startup is longer.
  • Rising Upper (F, D, DF, Punch or Kick) - Urban Champ does a shoryuken jumping uppercut attack. Punch version travels the least forwards but has invincibility at the beginning. Kick version drops the invincibility for more damage and Urban Champ preforms a short dash. The punch version can be cancelled into a super from the first hit. They're also unsafe on block as well.
  • Counter Attack (D, DB, B, Punch or Kick) - Urban Champ steps back and then throws out a punch. Urban Champ is completely invincible to attacks until the punch comes out. Compared to Rising Upper, this one starts up longer but hits farther and is much more safe. There are some additional commands during this move:
    • Spin Punch (F, F) - Urban Champ dashes forward while being invincible to projectiles. This invincibility wears off after the punch is thrown.
    • Dodge (B, B) - Urban Champ turns around, extending the invincibility until he throws the punch out. You can also use the Spin Punch during this.
  • Fistful Fury (F, DF, D, DB. B, Punch or Kick) - Urban Champ throws out a punch, proceeds to unleash a few more punches and then knocks the opponent out. Urban Champ's most damaging special attack and it does quite a bit of chip damage although it is unsafe. Punch version leaves the opponent standing but it's cancellable at any point. Kick version knocks down and does a bit more damage but can't be cancelled out of.

EX Specials
  • Power Launch (Quick Dash, Punch+Kick) - Urban Champ throws out an uppercut which on hit, launches the opponent and causes them to float downwards. The move is also safe on block.
  • EX Rising Upper (F, D, DF, Punch+Kick) - Does slightly more damage, travels farther than the punch version and the invincibility overlaps a bit when Urban Champ leaps off the ground
  • EX Fistful Fury F, DF, D, DB. B, Punch+Kick) - Basically does more hits and even more damage while still being cancellable.

Super Attacks
  • Triple Rise (Level 1) (D, DF, F, D, DF, F, Punch) - Urban Champ does three jumping uppercuts that can do up to a total of 8 hits. This works really well in juggles and can combo from almost all his specials. Urban Champ is also invincible before the first leap off the ground.
  • Flowerpot Toss (Level 1) (D, DB, B, DB, D, DF, F, Punch) - Urban Champ tosses a flower pot at the opponent. The flower pot flies at where the opponent was when Urban Champ tosses the pot. Upon getting hit, the opponent becomes dizzy on getting hit. It is possible to juggle into this move but the opponent won't be dizzy and the damage from the flower pot is quite weak.
  • Scapegoat (Level 1) (D, DB, B, D, DB, B, Kick) - Urban Champ whistles and acts completely innocent. If he gets hit with a basic attack at the beginning of the move, he flies back and a police car drives into the opponent.
  • Sewer Brawl (Level 3) (D, DF, F, D, DF, F, Punch + Kick) - Urban Champ unleashes several punches and if the uppercut at the end hits, the opponent gets knocked into a manhole. Urban Champ proceeds to follow the opponent and continues beating them up. Urban Champ is completely invincible during the first punch.

Helpers:
2P Urban Champion (5 hits):
  • Standing - Turns out and throws out a punch that causes the opponent to fly into the wall and bounce off of it. He's invincible during the turn.  (1/3 of the helper bar)
  • Crouching - Dashes forward and will either do a Sweep Punch, a Head Smash or a Power Launcher. (1/3 of the helper bar)

Bubbles (3 hits):
  • Standing - Bubbles goes after the opponent and if she can grab them (blockable), she slams the opponent onto the ground. (1/3 of the helper bar)
  • Crouching - Bubbles lets out a sonic wave and if the opponent is hit, they become stunned. (1/3 of the helper bar)

Balloon Fighter (3 hits):
  • Standing - Balloon Fighter flies by and drops sparks. If the opponent gets hit by one, they fall down. (1/2 of the helper bar)
  • Crouching - Balloon Fighter flies in and tosses a flipper. If the opponent touches the flipper, they get knocked forwards. (1/3 of the helper bar)

Palettes:

1 - Default
2 - 2P Urban Champ (2P Urban Champ helper uses 1P palette)
3 - Tennis
4 - Excitebike
5 - Jiro Ayashiro (Famicom Detective Club)
6 - Russian Volleyball Team

Other Stuff:
Arrested! - Defeating the opponent with Scapegoat causes the policeman to grab the opponent and take them into his car.

Lurking in the sewers - If the opponent is within KO range by the time they fall into the manhole in Sewer Brawl, something might help you finish the job instead...

As of now, Urban Champ is getting a few changes; mainly a damage nerf to his Rising Upper attacks but also getting a whole bunch of other buffs in the meantime. One of the new buffs involves his air strong punch getting changed into a reaching punch. (The uppercut will remain but as a separate basic command):

Thanks for this, Urban Champ always felt too strong for his own good.He played like a fighter with that one good move and ran with it. Even though he is my main, he needed a well deserved rework. He still looks good but not cheap to play with.

Great release! I was wondering, are you working on a new character?

Urban Champion updated (11/27/2017): https://www.dropbox.com/s/dn77x8xbu0iypb4/Urban%20Champion%20%2811-27-2017%29.zip?dl=0

-Changes to be applied to the next FCF update:
--Pause menu now displays the controls to navigate it.
--If Training Mode is detected (NOTE: Ok, it actually checks for certain aspects of Training Mode,
see XI. Known Issues/To-Do), the helper health and meter is always set to max.
--The input window for Urban Champion's cancels for Counter Attack have been extended to five
earlier frames.
--Fixed a bug that prevented the fish from popping up if Urban Champion had to back dash during
Sewer Brawl.
--Fixed a bug where Balloon Fighter would set your helper meter to zero when he tossed the
flipper.
--Fixed a bug where vs. certain character, the opponent won't fall into the manhole and Urban
Champion would remain stuck during Sewer Brawl. (this isn't really FCF-specific but the code will
be carried over for the FCF version anyways)
--Fixed velocities for the helpers for scaled up Urban Champion. (also not really FCF-specific)

-Changes for the standalone version only:
--The general controls will update now if you use the six button scheme.
--In the SFF file, there's now a portrait from the old 2010 Urban Champion. See Configuration
Notes on how to change the portraits.
--Fixed Urban Champion being able to air recover even when it's disabled.
--Helper bars' position are now adjustable in Config.txt
--If Urban Champion is the secondary player on a team during Simul mode, his helper bars will only
be readjusted if his partner is a Famicom Fighters character. (EX: Another Urban Champion)
--Readme changes: Fixed Sewer Brawl commands and added "X. Extra Stuff" and
"XI. Known Issues/To-Do". The configurable stuff that does not relate to Config.txt has been
split into its own section. (i. Non-Config.txt stuff)
