    I think this character may be quite fun to play as, since he has a pogo stick and really good music.
    What do you think?

    I've been holding out for Scrooge McDuck for a long time. Given the new powerup system, he may not be totally appropriate, though it may be fun to have the opposite of Bill (can get a Mushroom but nothing else).

    I support this request wholeheartedly.

    Well the mushroom would give him the pogo stick and make him jump like jumping on rush. He could bounce multple times and kill enemies with the pogo stick (he also could bounce on spike tops, but not kill them).No Mushroom? Well, try to get one!

    Maybe there could be upgrades for the pogo stick. I had an idea called the power stomp, where if you hit the jump button while the pogo stick touches the ground, you could break blocks.

    I see him as a Link skin. His pogo stick can work as a downward thrust, I really like that game :D

    I think Scrooge would be more unique as his own character, because the only thing that would actually work as a link skin would be the downward thrust.

    Yeah but the chance of him being in the next update are slim considering the fact that he's not a VG character, it's still a a possibility as a skin though.

    Eh, I guess.

    It seems to me that Scrooge is like Link, but with fewer abilities, so he wouldn't be worth making his own character. He'd just need some new sprites as a skin.

    For those interested, I made a Scrooge skin for Mario.

    As long as he controls exactly like in the original game, I'm all for it.

    We could also include his abilities from DuckTales 2.

    I think that the current biggest obstacle to Scrooge's inclusion is his lack of power-ups, as MKF currently only supports power-up based characters (and changing this would require an overhaul of the core gameplay).
    In the past I've spoken out against including characters from licensed games . . . but I think I'd be willing to make an exception for Scrooge McDuck. Honestly, I'm excited for DuckTales Remastered too.

    While we're on the subject, here' s some semi-important stuff.

    Underground/Bonus Level: African Mines


    Castle: Transylvania


    Underwater: The Moon


    World 3/6: The Himalayas


    Boss: Boss Battle


    Dying: Dying Sound
    (couldn't find that one)

    Starman: Magic Coin


    End Credits: Level Select


    End Credits (alterative, you decide which one's more fitting): Title Screen



    Rescuing Messages:
    World 1-7
    THANK YOU SCROOGE!
    BUT THE TREASURE IS IN
    ANOTHER CASTLE!

    World 8
    THANK YOU SCROOGE!
    YOU ARE NOW THE RICHEST DUCK
    IN THE WORLD!


    Skins:

    NES: DuckTales, DuckTales 2 (if thier not the same)
    GB: DuckTales, DuckTales 2 (if thier not the same, yes there are GB ports, its not that well-known though).
    SNES: DuckTales Remastered (I guess it would fit, but custom sprites always work as well!)


    Skin Differences:
    None, but if the physics engines are different depending on the version, that's the differences.

    Can Swim:
    Maybe (Its been announced that there will be a feature in DuckTales remastered where players will be able to swim in Scrooge's money vault. If its literal [meaning that its going to be possible to swim through the vault complete with sprites] then yes, if that was a figure of speech [meaning that the vault can't actually be swum in] then no).
    EDIT: You are able to swim in Scrooge's money vault. However, from the gameplay footage I've seen, it doesn't look like there's that many sprites to make this happen (as most of it is just Scrooge poking his head out).

    I don't know every feature that will be in the game, but it looks an awful lot like it's going to use models rather than sprites.

    The characters use Paper Mario-esque sprites, everything else is a model. Besides, Bass' sprites are from MM10, which is a Wii game. If we're going to use sprites like that, then its worth a try using.
