Okay I have a request: Can you please make Shingo Yabuki from KOF?
Shingo is Kyo's #1 fanboy and dedicated himself to fighting exactly just like his idol. As a result, Shingo would share a lot of moves with Kyo, but has a spin with it, making him a pseudo-clone.
While Shingo would have the same attributes as Kyo, the difference would be that while Kyo is about quick moves that can combo, Shingo would be about single, hard-hitting, but laggier, moves.
As a result of Shingo copying Kyo's moveset, several animations for his moves are about the same as Kyo, so you can just copy Kyo's code and make it Shingo's, just changing the damage and knockback output. The only move you have to change would be Shingo's ssmash, since Shingo can't produce fire like Kyo can.
Now for Specials however, that's where most of the variations are for Shingo:
Neutral Special: Since Shingo can't make fire, instead it would be Shingo Kick, a move where he leaps into the air and delivers a high flying kick. It can also be used as a horizontal-only recovery move. While it's not the most damaging move in Shingo's kit, it's the only special that he can use in the air that won't put him into freefall.
Side Special is somewhat as Kyo's except instead of changing depending on whether the normal or special button is pressed, Shingo instead delivers a 3 hit combo that can't be altered, which is to show how Shingo's is trying be like Kyo, but lacking the experience.
Up special would also be the same except it delivers one hard hitting blow instead of 2 hits, but the sweetspot is at the beginning of the move, a la Luigi and Dan.
Down Special is just the same as Kyo's but Shingo would be put into freefall due to his inexperience.
And finally, his Final Smash, his Hidden Desperation move from KOF 2002 UM, where it starts like Kyo's but he forgets how to do the rest of it, so he looks up in his journal how to do it. Once he does get it, it plays out just like Kyo's.
So that was the rundown of Shingo's moveset. I know I could have made this a bounty, but I'd figured that the person to do it best would be the guy who made Kyo in the first place.
Aside from that, I only ask for a few more things: Make his Green Team palette based on Kyo, his Black Team palette based on Iori, and that he can be playable on 9.4 along with CMC 7.
If you see this and are interested in this idea, reply back to me and we can talk about this more.
