Representative of: Konami
First Game: Castlevania (September 26, 1986)
Progress: 100%
Playstyle: Defensive character with mid-range/long-range options.

Strengths:
-Really good anti-airs.
-Boomerang and Whip Swing can go through projectiles and his slide kick can go right under a few of them.
-Has one of the farthest-reaching meterless non-projectile attacks..
-Basic attacks have decent reach.

Weaknesses:
-Combos aren't particularly strong.
-Can't deal well with pressure.
-Jump is floatier than most of the characters and he's unable to change his direction during a neutral jump.
-Although he has several ways of dealing with projectiles, he can't deal with low projectiles very well. (Projectiles fly above them, you can't slide under them, whip can hit them but the startup is quite slow)

Getsu Fuuma has been getting a rework, mainly to buff him as well as giving him a better crouch summon attack!: https://streamable.com/tz1hj

Simon now has a standalone M.U.G.E.N version! He's scaled up (with a file to resize him back) and comes with a configurable file! He also has received several balance and mechanic changes that will be implemented into the next update of Famicom Fighters!

Thank you very much for these updates to all the characters. I especially like how the BGM only stops during their Round 2 victory poses or if their death has music.

However, with this comes a minor inconsistency: The music still briefly stops if Simon KOs someone. It seems like that particular change hasn't been applied to him yet.

Edit: Also, has nothing to do with Simon, but I found a small typo in one of Thonolan's quotes: "With ever loss, there is something to learn. I hope you figure it out."
