UNLOCK: DLC

STATS:
Weight class - Medium
Falling class - Medium

Jump height - Low
Character class - Chaos Soldier

SPECIALS:
B - Frizz/Frizzle/Kafrizz (source: DQ3)
Side B - Zap/Zapple/Kazap (source: DQ3)

HOME COURSE:
Yggdrasil's Altar

TAUNT:
Up - Psyche Up Psyche Out
Side - Stab the Sky
Down - Slime Stumble

SPECIAL TRAITS/TRIVIA:
--Obviously, the alts are all different DQ protags. The non-represented ones appear during Gigaslash, including one from DQX, which was (a) an MMO, & (b) never released outside of Japan & China.
--Each alt gets different music during their Classic credits.
--Possesses a passive shield like the Links.
--Smash attacks have a 12.5% chance of critical hit.
--MP refills slowly with time, faster when standard attacks connect, & completely when respawning.
--Neutral, side, & up specials can be charged regardless of how much MP is left, but (a) the charge on Frizzle/Kafrizz will be wasted if the the player attempts to launch the attack with insufficient MP, & (b) Zapple/Kazap & Swoosh/Kaswoosh will fail with insufficient MP. None of the attacks will revert to a lower form that there *is* enough MP for, & Hero will still enter helpless fall if Whoosh/Swoosh/Kaswoosh fails.
--Kamikazee does not appear as an option during the WoL finale.
--Metal Slash works on any opponent with a metal condition, including Metal Box users, metal spirit users, & Kaclang users; however, it does not work on gold opponents (spirit battles or under the effect of Xerneas or Golden Plains) unless they also have a normal metal modifier on as well.
--Hocus Pocus effects include emulating the effects of Super Mushrooms, Poison Mushrooms, Cloaking Devices, Super Stars, Lip's Stick (on himself), Timer (on himself), Snooze (on himself), poison (on himself), a full MP refill, a full MP drain, or any of the other Command Selections.

You cannot escape the RNG. Learn. To. Adapt.
(I do think 3 full-blown OHKO moves is just silly, though.)

And remember, "I'm-a Luigi, number one!"
