Smash Bros. Ballot Vote #2: Shovel Knight (Colors) by Fawful117-the-Epic
Smash Bros. Ballot Vote #2: Shovel Knight (Colors)
Since the "Smash Bros. Ballot" is now in play, I thought I'd give my two cents as to which characters I'll be voting for, what their movesets could be, and even their color swaps (as seen here)! Expect more to come soon!

My second vote for the Smash Bros. Ballot is Shovel Knight! I recently bought the game for the Wii U, and so far, it's a great title to own! With amazing stage design, sound design, and awesome music, this game is a must-have for fans of old, 8-bit platformer games. But, anyway, let's get down to the colors.

The first coloration is none other than the standard cerulean armor that he wears. The second coloration is when he equips the "Final Guard" armor set, which halves the amount of gold you lose when you die. The third color isn't really any specific armor you can acquire in-game; it's more or less just there for the Green Team users. The fourth color is when he equips the "Conjurer's Coat", which increases the amount of mana you have. The fifth color is the "Dynamo Mail" armor set, which lets you build up a charged 
charged slash by performing two consecutive downward strikes in a row. The sixth color is not only based on the "Mail of Momentum" armor set, but also on Shovel Knight's arch-rival, the Black Knight. The 7th color is based on the "Ornate Plate" armor set, which changes the visual effects of his normal jump (turning it into a front flip that sparkles), which is more or less cosmetic, but it lights up dark areas. The final color scheme is based on Polar Knight, one of the members of the "Order of No Quarter", who resides in the Stranded Ship area of the game.

Expect a full moveset later on. I hope you all like these!

Smash Bros. Ballot Vote #1: Paper Mario (Colors) by Fawful117-the-Epic
Smash Bros. Ballot Vote #1: Paper Mario (Colors)
Since the "Smash Bros. Ballot" is now in play, I thought I'd give my two cents as to which characters I'll be voting for, what their movesets could be, and even their color swaps (as seen here)! Expect more to come soon!

My first vote for a potential DLC fighter is Paper Mario! Now, before you nay-sayers say anything, he is NOT just a clone of Mario. There are many different assets to his games that make him stand out from regular Mario; such as Badges, Hammers, different items, Partners that assist him through his adventures, etc. Just play his games for yourself, and you'll see what I mean.

The first color is, what else, his usual colors. The three following colors are based on the L Badge, W Badge, and the L & W Badges equipped together. The two after that are Fire and Ice Mario colors, since he could use these forms in Paper Mario: Sticker Star. The 7th color is a "reversed" color scheme, to fit in line with Mario's regular Mario's same palette swap. The last one (while it is a longshot) is the use of an unused badge from the original Paper Mario, which made him into "Anger Mario". While I don't see that last one happening, I'd say it's worth a shot.

Expect a full moveset later on. I hope you all like these!

Today, I'm going to try and figure out one of the many questions that has yet to have a full-on answer;

"Why do Yoshis always have shoes on"?

A very intriguing question indeed. Why DO they always have shoes on? Why do they never take them off? Well, today, I plan to answer those questions so that maybe, JUST maybe, we can make some inter-species connections in the Mario universe. Why? Because SCIENCE!

So, the first thing we have to analyze is this; the egg. Why the egg? Because, straight from birth, Baby Yoshis have their boots on. This has led many to believe that the boots are just the Yoshi species' TRUE feet. But that just isn't true. Sure, they're born with them and always wear them. This must mean that they don't ever want to take them off, right? Well, not exactly.

Take a look back to Super Mario RPG, where on Yoshi's Island (called Yo'ster Isle in-game), there's a blue, punk-like Yoshi named Boshi (or, in japan, Washi, like Wario and Waluigi's names). One key aspect about Boshi is that he wear shoes that don't completely cover his feet. From this, we see that the Yoshi species has 3-toed paws (which is what I'll be calling them from this point forward). And yet, it goes BEYOND that!

Recently, I found this picture on the Mario Wiki: 41.media.tumblr.com/430f2a211b…
That, my friends, is Yoshi without a shoe. But one other key aspect that is revealed about the Yoshi species is that they have white pads on the bottom of their paws. Well, since it's clear that they have pawpads, why do they always keep their shoes on? Are they shy about people seeing their paws? Are the shoes too comfortable to take off?

Well, perhaps it's the fact that their pawpads are too soft, and thus, too weak to use while adventuring and such. To help with this theory, let's take a look at another 3-toed, single-padded species of the Mushroom Kingdom; the Koopas. There are many members of the Koopa kind, but we're just going to look at one specific member that has, ever since his debut, decided to stick with being bare-pawed and shoe-less. This member is none other than the great Koopa King, Bowser.

Bowser always walks around without any protection of his pads. He can do anything without protection of his paws, while it seems that Yoshi cannot. With this in mind, this must mean that Bowser's race (as well as a few other members of the Koopa species) has adapted to tough conditions, which would explain why he never really hurts his feet. This would also mean that Yoshi's pads, compared to Bowser's, are too soft and vulnerable to use in tough conditions. And this is only further proven by a cousin(?) of the Yoshi Species...Birdo.

Birdo (the poor gender-confused bastard) always walks around without shoes either, meaning that (s)he must have durable pads, like Bowser does. Plus, (s)he's Yoshi's exact size! Why Yoshi's paws are barely as strong and durable as even Birdo's, I'm not even sure of. Maybe the little guy just needs some exorcise.
Either way, it seems that the conclusion to this mystery is: Yoshis always have their shoes on to protect their vulnerable paws from extreme conditions. And to be honest, those shoes hold up pretty well, so it's easy to see exactly why they'd always wear them! That's all I've got for now, but who knows? Maybe there's more to it. Ya never know.

What do you guys think about this analysis? Do you guys have your own theories as to why Yoshi never takes off his shoes or walks around bare-pawed? Or perhaps you have other mysteries that you'd like to have solved? Let me know in the comments below!

I hope you all liked this, and I'll talk to you guys later! ^w^

Five Sprites At Freddy's - Golden Freddy
After seeing hfbn2's mugshot of Freddy Fazbear, I couldn't help but make a Golden Freddy variant of it. 

I hope you (and hfbn2) like it!

M.U.G.E.N/Marvel Vs. Capcom - Punk Sprite Sheet by Fawful117-the-Epic
M.U.G.E.N/Marvel Vs. Capcom - Punk Sprite Sheet
Took me almost 12 hours to make today. And it was really worth it!

So, yeah, this is made for M.U.G.E.N, but has a Marvel Vs. Capcom-style moveset to it. 

I hope you all like it!

(oh, and ask for permission to use it, if you want to.)
