Ok, so I have this really weird dream character that all stems from a childhood obsession with his franchise:
Tenderheart Bear from the Care Bears. Yes, I'm serious. This isn't some edgy parody version either, my vision for him is that he's mostly true to the loving and kind self he is and doesn't really want to hurt you, but is simply forced to fight because this is a fighting tournament. To anyone who's actually insane enough to do this, my preferred sprite style would lean towards CvS (There is a GBA game and maybe some games on obscure edutainment consoles but those are hardly enough for a fighting game). As for gameplay, I would like something CvS based (maybe even straight up PoTS) but something more custom could work.
If I were making him, I'd try to have both a Normal and EX mode: The Normal mode is based on the 80s versions, and uses his magic tummy symbol a lot. He can be able to make heart-shaped (of course) projectiles, use a cloud car (yes I'm serious), call assists that would be a mix of fellow bears and Care Bear Cousins, and of course the Level 3 super's gotta be the classic Care Bear Stare. EX mode is more based on later versions, specifically "Adeventures in Care-a-Lot" with a mix of the movies from the early 2000s. This version doesn't use the tummy symbol most of the time, but relies more on physical athletic moves, being more of a daredevil. His assists also don't feature the Care Bear Cousins. A lot of work would need to be done due to basically no sprites being available (though again, some inspiration could be taken from that one GBA game) and more of a moveset would need to be developed beyond my rough ideas, but still, this would be quite... something.
I could help engineer this moveset:
Statistically, Tenderheart is well... tender, with sloppy offensive and defensive stats, though with a defensive slant. His basic moves aren't too much to write home about, either. His backdash is surprisingly swift,though, good for getting away from enemies. In EX mode, this backdash becomes a hop, allowing him to perform a quick attack as a getaway. Basic attacks are used to combo into his Unique Attacks, a playstyle more emphasized in EX mode. From there, his heart projectiles are used as the combo enders, more focused on stunning a foe for a combo than dealing damage. He can also use the cloud car as another combo ender, recommended as his projectiles are otherwise anti-air oriented, opening him up for juggle opportunities. His real strength, however, lies in his ability to utterly swarm the battlefield with helpers. He can have up to 5 helpers on-screen at a time. Within this strength also lies weakness; each helper can survive only a set number of hits. Every helper he loses, his Level 3 loses its power. If his Level 3 has all helpers able to aid, it is at its most powerful, but it makes barely a splash if he has lost too many partners in battle. Each helper has a different purpose, as well, anything from setting traps to healing.
EX mode has far more Unique Attacks for the purposes of lengthy combos. This makes up for the fact his helpers have diminished in number (Maybe use characters from the "Care Bears Ripoffs" of the 80s like Little Clowns of Happytown?) and his stats remain poor. He is also able to dodge in a variety of ways, allowing him to bob and weave outta trouble. His projectile remains an anti-air move, but gains a more grounded, if close-range, counterpart. I could see at least one mode have a belly dive like Cheng Sinzan, along with a Super version.
I'll stick to the creator's vault for now.
A few years back KFM claimed he was going to lose his hosting and needed unbanning to say "goodbye to people"
Bea then supplied the tools and me and her made him a copy of the site to be a backup, but he wouldnt get unbanned.
it then turned out to be another of his schemes and since he didnt get unbanned he returned to his affairs.
So anyway heres random select archives from a few years back
I cant reasonably tell when this was taken, but I hope it helps someone.
Did they shut down the site or is it a host problem like MFFA did a few times?
