    A thread for Snake Eyes from Taxan's G.I. JOE. I did this with Version 1.x in mind so stuff I wrote might be obsolete now that 2.0 is on the way. Thought I'd post it all the same.

    OVERVIEW: Snake Eyes was one of the six playable Joes in Taxan's 2-D platformer based on the hit cartoon/toyline. This ninja had a katana for close encounters and was the only one of his comrades to use ammo-less 'jitsu' fireballs instead of guns. He also had the highest jump, which gave him a bit more maneuverability than the rest and let him reach objects or locations that the others couldn't. His popularity among fans and non-fans alike make him the ideal G.I. JOE rep for SMBC.

    CONTROLS:
    B: Slash
    A: Jump
    Up + B: Toss grenades upward in a narrow arc; destroys Buzzy Beetles
    Special: Toggle between sword and jitsu
    B (jitsu toggled): Fireballs
    Up + B (jitsu toggled): Shoot jitsu upward
    Down + B (jitsu toggled, midair only): Shoot jitsu downward

    POWERUPS
    Unlike Ryu whose Dragon Sword gets stronger with each powerup gained, Snake Eyes's development will focus on his jitsu.

    Unpowered: Snake Eyes shoots single balls of energy; relatively weak
    Mushroom: Jitsu manifests as dual balls of energy; damage increase
    Flower: Jitsu manifests as triangular waves; max damage

    PROS:
    -Functionally a cross between Ryu and Megaman with a dash of Simon
    -Can shoot straight up as well as straight down while in mid-air (DOWNWARD JITSU MOTHERFUCKER!)
    -Potential highest jump in the game, possibly exceeding Megaman's maximum height whether he's using Rush or whether he has his special jump option activated
    -Wall cling

    CONS:
    -We already have a ninja
    -Doesn't bring much in the way of new stuff to the game; could be more of a novelty character than anything else
    -Not much room for growth as far as 2.0 is concerned*

    *A possible workaround would be to use his incarnation from G.I. JOE: The Atlantis Factor and have Storm Shadow as his alt skin. This may result in considerably different controls and mechanics from the above, however.

    Meh. Also on 2.0 only Mario and Luigi can get Fire Flowers now.

    I would love the NES Snake Eyes to appear in this game as well.
