    As now Lance is using music of Super C, I think we can go a little further, by giving him the Flamethrower in Super C.
    Spec difference:
    Contra: Fires a small fireball in corkscrew pattern. 125 piercing damage. Goes through unbreakable walls.
    Super C: Fires a large fireball that explodes on hit. Hold for a while for a bigger blast. 100/150 piercing damage when normal/hold. Does not go through walls.
    This can be considered as "skin difference" like Rokko-chan, Quick Man, or so. This can also be applied to other Lance equivalents like RD-011 (if correct).

    This is more than a simple skin difference. Adjusting values to make a character move faster or dash instead of jump is one thing, but it's a whole other thing to completely invent a new weapon for a skin. I agree it would be cool, but it's not as easy as it may seem.
    MissingNo2 and Faruga like this.

    I am 100% for this idea. However, making Lance a separate character may be the only way to accomplish this.

    Allow me to rediret something I said in a different thread.

    I see your point, but don't necessarily agree with it. If we are never going to get new characters, one option is to just focus on the existing ones to make the gameplay as varied as possible. If only more unique weapons can justify this change then I recommend looking at Contra 3 and Contra 4 for ideas.
