  1. Please

    Please Level 6: Lakitu

    But that's just a change of clothing, technically Bill R. does switch the Lance's colors in the game, even though brief, when he get's a b powerup. With the battletoads they completely change characters.

    Or maybe "Thanks Battletoad Crew!"

    Or would that be too confusing?

    But yerffej's point is true. Although Please IS right on this. It's either "Battletoads" or "Battletoad Crew"

    which one?
  3. Please

    Please Level 6: Lakitu

    That's too complicated. Battletoads will do, but I still think changing names could work better.

    Do you think people would know who Zits and Pimples are?

    I mean, sure people would know who Rash is because of the "Game Over" screen, but who would guess that Battletoads is 2 player and who the hell finished the game?!

    And I know you're gonna bring this up, but I don't think a lot of people owned "Battletoads and Double Dragon" or whatever the full title is.

    Battletoads will do.

    If I recall wasn't there an intro animation that had their names in it? Also, the "target audience" of SMBC is people that know the games and as such will probably know the names of the characters. Not to mention the popular AVGN video that has a joke based on the names.

    Why such Disgusting names? How about Herpes, Genital Warts, and Gonorreah?

    I love it XD

    Don't tell me you knew exactly who SOPHIA III was before SMBC came out. You see? And it's not like Mario changes when he got a power-up, he got bigger (kinda like Zits to Pimples) but he was still the same person. But of course, everyone knew there was more then one Battletoad, just didn't know the names.
  7. Please

    Please Level 6: Lakitu

    Actually, I did...

    The difference is that Mario was made to get power ups like that, the Battletoads weren't.

    Captain Knight Level 6: Lakitu

    So you're telling me that when you're in the character select screen, the name is gonna change? Along with the top right while you're playing as them?

    I mean, you'd have to do the same name for all those 3 things, except for SOPHIA but everyone knew someone was inside of him because of when he gets selected.

    Let's say I'm Zits. I get a power-up. I turn into Pimples. The name at the top right changed to "Pimples" that would make no sense.

    Perhaps the best way to end this name debate is to use Rash only, with different shades of green. The NES color palette has atleast three shades of green, as you can see below:
    So, use different shades like Ryu and Bill do, and keep it simple with one battletoad.

    what about the star
  11. Captain Knight

    Captain Knight Level 6: Lakitu

    We've been thinking that the Turbo Bike (or whatever it is) appears when you touch a star, therefore, making invincible. But there COULD be other ideas.

    This is where you guys start suggesting
  12. pokemondream

    pokemondream Level 5: Spiny

    yeah the turbo bike would be much cooler than just diffferent colors
  13. World 1-1

    World 1-1 Level 6: Lakitu

    Differently from Stage 3, you can crash anything and destroy it. Seems cool.
  14. Captain Knight

    Captain Knight Level 6: Lakitu

    Goombas flying off the screen, pipes getting crushed, awesome!

    But what happens when they fall into pits?
  15. Sophitroid

    Sophitroid Level 1: Goomba

    Hmm... Well , they die. :3
  16. Captain Knight

    Captain Knight Level 6: Lakitu

    No, the bikes, if they fall into the pits, what'll happen?
  17. Crownjo

    Crownjo Level 7: Bloober

    Using just Rash is fine. Having him turn diffrent colors based on his teammates would work well.
  18. Captain Knight

    Captain Knight Level 6: Lakitu

    Hopefully it'll be noticable, because most of the time I can't tell from "Sophia no power up" and "Mushroom Sophia"

    What'll be the special moves? The Battletoads have a lot of moves, which should we pick from?
  19. bnjay29

    bnjay29 Level 4: Buzzy Beetle

    Well I have an idea how the move list could go:
    First of all, attacks can be implemented by pressing attack and a directional button

    Standard attacks:
    Attack button will be punch combo before finishing with straight punch
    Up and attack button will enable the football punt kick
    Down and attack will enable the double handed fist drop attack
    If a dashing system is used for them, then tapping forward twice then attack will enable the head butt

    Mushroom Power will make the attacks stronger.....BUT if you get a Fire Flower:
    Straight punch finish becomes the KISS MY FIST
    Up attack becomes the BIG BAD BOOT
    Down attack becomes the NUCLEAR KNUCKLES
    Dash attack becomes the BATTERING RAM

    Also, wouldn't it be fun if we had the ability to pick up enemies and TAKE OUT THE TRASH??? :D

    That layout sounds pretty good to me. If any of you were wondering where I got the names for those attacks, only a true BattleToads fan will know!
