King Dedede - A Mod for Super Smash Bros. Crusade.

Long live the King

Final Smash: Yes
Item Points: Yes
True Palettes: Nope

Yes, it took this long for somebody to try and make a proper Dedede.

Dedede plays very similarly to how you remember him, but with several key differences and changed moves. In general he's much more offensive now, and excels at punishing offstage opponents.

I'll spare you the details on his normals and skip to his specials.

B: Inhale
Dedede's Inhale is similar to Kirby's, just like in the official games. However, to make it stand out more, it functions very differently as an actual attack. Dedede can't move around with opponents in his gullet, instead automatically firing out the opponent as a powerful projectile after a very short amount of time. The projectile is faster than Kirby's, in addition to being much stronger.

The tradeoff for this lack in functionality comes in its offensive capabilities; unlike Kirby's Inhale, Dedede's version actually hurts the opponent that he spits out as a star. The damage dealt from being fired is variable by the victim's weight. It can't kill, but it can rack up some serious damage.

Additionally, Dedede can inhale projectiles fired at him from the front, spitting them straight back as a speedy star projectile.

Side B: Minion Toss
Dedede punts a minion forwards with his hammer, spawning them as a bouncy projectile to be juggled around with attacks.

This attack is a bit of a marriage between the Gordo Throw and the old Brawl version of the move, with multiple enemies being spawned as direct projectiles rather than wandering nuisances.

Unlike Gordo Throw, however, the minions aren't set to certain trajectories based on the tilt of the control stick; instead, the minions can be continually hit while they're out, and their arcs and attack power will vary depending on what kind of attacks hit them.

Minions aren't random, and spawn in a cycle of 3 (Waddle Dee > Waddle Doo > Gordo). Each Minion has its own properties (such as gravity, damage scaling, and knockback resistance). Only one Minion can be spawned at a time per Dedede player.

Up B: Super Dedede Jump
This move works much the same way as it does in the official games. Dedede leaps up high, then crashes back down, spawning two small star projectiles beside him when he lands. Dedede has a small bit of horizontal control while he's falling, but the move can also be cancelled before the drop to give Dedede a little more influence over his landing.

Unlike the official version, this version is a little faster, but also lacks super armor. This is a conscious decision made to try and balance out his increased offensive potential; extra defense on top of that seems like overkill to me.

Down B: SSUD3-C Jet Hammer
Dedede transforms his trusty hammer into the SSUD3-C Jet Hammer, the very same hammer he likes to use as Masked Dedede. The attack that Dedede uses changes depending on if he's in the ground or the air by the time the hammer is finished transforming.

On the ground, Dedede stabs his hammer's hilt into the ground and fires three homing missiles for 2% damage each. The stab at the beginning is a weak meteor smash, which can both edgeguard opponents and combo them into the missiles.

In the air, Dedede swings the hammer with all of his might, executing what is essentially a spiking Falcon Punch. This move is incredibly powerful but has much more startup than the grounded variation, so it's easy to see coming. If Dedede doesn't execute the swing before touching the ground, he'll instead transition into the missile attack.

The start-up lag for both moves is shared, so you can't cancel it by purposely starting the move in the air and fast-falling to the ground. However, you can still use fast-falling as a way to bait your opponent into countering the swing, only the retreat to the ground and attack them with the homing missiles.

Some trivia:
This version of the hammer doesn't actually have an official name, so I fused the name of his regular Down B (Jet Hammer) with an original take on the naming scheme seen for the Dedede mechs.
SSU = Super Star Ultra (the game Masked Dedede first appeared in)
D3 = DeDeDe
-C = Crusade

Final Smash: Revenge of the King
Dedede fully equips himself to become Masked Dedede, overclocking the SSUD3-C to maximum output and swinging furiously like a royal tempest. Dedede floats slightly off the ground and can control his horizontal movement, making the move an extremely effective horizontal recovery; however, once Dedede commits to a direction, he has a very hard time turning around. After he finishes spinning, Dedede sends his captured opponents flying offstage and returns to normal. It's very fast on startup and safe to use from any position, so it also works as a very effective counterattack.

Now give him a try and see what it's like to be The King

    I played against Dedede in a versus match, and I have two critiques:

    1) The Standard Special is a little janky. When I was inhaled and spat out, I did briefly turn into a star (as I was supposed to), but afterwards ended up in the air for some reason, and I was at minimal damage.

    2) Minor nitpick, but the KO sounds are very delayed.

    Hope you can fix this in the next update.

    There's only one day-one hotfix. Gamebanana's server is a handful of actual bananas attempting to imitate a potato battery, so it reposted it several times at once. Apologies for any confusion.

    Edit: Gamebanana's mental faculties returned to functional levels and allowed me to remove the excess updates. Carry on, kings.
    Quality done fast!
