    How about having each character have his/her own powerups? Confused? I'll explain.

    Say you were playing as Link, and you hit a block that would have a Mushroom come out. Instead, something else pops out, but it does the same thing as a Mushroom. It's just basically altering the sprites, not the function of it. Here's my ideas:

    Link-
    Mushroom: Life Potion
    Fire Flower: 2nd Potion
    1-Up: Heart Container
    Star: Fairy

    Bill-
    Mushroom: Machine Gun power-up
    Fire Flower: Spread Gun power-up
    1-Up: ???
    Star: ???

    Simon-
    Mushroom/Fire Flower: Whip Upgrade
    1-Up: Healing Item
    Star: Cross

    Mega Man-
    Mushroom: Mega Man's Helmet
    Fire Flower: ???
    1-Up: Energy Tank
    Star: (I don't know the name of it, but it's in Mega Man 1 and 10, maybe 9, I don't remember, and it looks similar to a Bombos Medallion if I remember correctly. It's like an Mystery Tank; it refills everything)

    Samus-
    Mushroom: Long Beam power-up
    Fire Flower: Wave Beam or Varia Suit power-up
    1-Up: Energy Tank
    Star: Missle Tank or Screw Attack power-up?

    SOPHIA-
    Mushroom/Fire Flower: Upgrade (appears when you beat a boss)
    1-Up: P Ball
    Star: H Ball

    I don't have Ryu up there because I have no idea what to put for him.

    I don't know if Jay is going to make it possible to have different power-ups for each character simultaneously. I think that if you choose to for example have Mega Man power-ups, those power-ups will appear for all characters. But I like the idea.

    Alternate Simon:
    Mushroom: Double Shot
    Fire Flower: Triple Shot
    1-Up: 1-Up
    Star: Invisibility Potion/Blue Crystal

    The thing you're thinking of for Mega Man is called a Yashichi.

    Also, this is a really cool idea; I'm just wondering how awkward it might look with Sonic's TV boxes or something. Cool idea; it's probably doable considering that bullets and enemies can be changed.

    Something's gonna be weird... the first power-up is supposed to be a mshroom. If you change the skin to something like a potion, it's gonna be a creepy walking potion! But anyway, I have ideas too (PLUS some of the ones you've already said), I guess. I don't care if my potion or any power up walks away.
    Thinking about it, a walking mushroom is pretty weird too, but whatever.

    It is in every single Megaman game.

    Link's second sword is called the White Sword, and no, there isn't a helmet sprite. But, we can just edit one of Mega Man's sprites to get his helmet separate. And it's a H Ball, not a J Ball. It gives you hover energy in the original Blaster Master.

    We'll just draw some wheels on them. Problem Solved.

    Thanks. I just happen to have tipped the letter next to it accidentely.

    Or rather goomba legs?

    Actually, there is a helmet sprite. This can be found on MM9 and MM10 sprite sheets:

    Bill's Star could be the Barrier Power-Up, and his 1-up could be a sprite that looks like the medals which represent Bill's lives in the Contra game.

    Maybe Mega Man's fire flower can be a red or orange "E" tank.

    I believe that power-ups will be skinable to, so there should be skins for them, for example, Samus' musrum could be replaced with what the long beam powerup looked like in the original, and same for wave beem and fire flower.

    Not in MM8 or MM&B. In those games, they're Mega Man's helmet, answering Zunar's question.
    And sbq's helmet sprite looks too big, but its size has been doubled, so actually, it's perfect.
    Yeah, I know those posts are really old, but no-one's posted for two months.
    EDIT: The FF power-up could be an orange or blue Weapon Tank (see Mega Man 7, Mega Man 10, Mega Man IV, Mega Man V, or Mega Man ZX).
    And as for the weird potion stuff, you could put it on a sled. :D

    What is the weapon tank? I dont recall it.

    I've never played a game that it's in. However, according to the Mega Man Knowledge Database:
    Sorry about the weird arrangement. The original page is here. And the Roman numerals are the GB games.

    So is there a physical difference between the E tank and the weapon tank I only saw the E tank pictured.

    Well...

    Would be great if you could make animated powerups. Then you could give it creepy spider legs.

    Haha. I think that'd make people attack the power-up before touching it. Like "YIIK! CREEPY MONSTER" :D Sounds funny.

    I thought of doing it with skins, but then, they can't be animated. Only the still Fire Flower and the bouncy Star have animations.
