Hi all! A lot of you know how badly I want the King of All Cosmos in and made a thread about why i thought he should be included. Well i was recently challenged to make a moveset for him so...CHALLENGE ACCEPTED!
The King of All Cosmos Moveset and Other Info:
Square – The Royal Combo: Press square four times for 2 right jabs, a left jab, and a right cross
Square forward – The Royal Lunge: lunges forward with a rainbow streak behind him and punches an opponent in the stomach. Stuns opponent for a short time
Square up – The Royal Uppercut: the king uppercuts an opponent in the jaw. The king proceeds to shoot upwards with a rainbow streak behind him taking the opponent with him. This puts the king in the perfect position to do more damage and also works to isolate an opponent from a group
Square down – The Royal Slide: slides slightly forward into an opponent. The reason it’s a kick instead of a punch is because the King’s crouch would look like this
Air Square – Same as above
Air Square forward – Same as above
Air Square up – same as above
Air square down – The Royal Kick: extends arms outwards and quickly kicks both feet downwards. It doesn’t take him all the way down to the ground (it would be similar to Fat Princess' Air square down)
(Interesting Note: The Royal Combo can be finished with any of the above moves instead of the usual right cross. For example pressing square 3 times and then forward square will cause the king to do 2 right jabs, a left jab, and then the Royal Lunge. The Royal Combo can also lead into the Royal Uppercut. If down square is pressed at the end of the combo, instead of doing the Royal Slide or the Royal Kick, the King will swing his arm downwards, knocking the opponent into the ground. All of these punch moves are an homage to his boxing days)
Triangle – Meteor Rain: a projectile meteor crashes into the ground in front of the king, diagonally from above him. Holding triangle causes more to rain down in succession
Triangle forward- Eyes Lasers: shoots lasers forward. Mid range blast
Triangle up – Star Creation: lifts hand like he does when creating a star in the katamari games. A katamari slows floats upwards before exploding. Holding up triangle longer allows the katamari to cause a bigger explosion
Triangle down – Bowling for Katamari: bowls a katamari along the ground. The katamari can bounce off of walls and last a few seconds
Air triangle – Same as above
Air triangle forward – same as above
Air triangle up – Same as above
Air triangle down – Same as above
Circle – Black Hole: creates a small black hole in front of him. This works as the opposite of sackboy’s fan and starts to stuck opponents towards him and always makes it harder for them to run away. Also works to bring drop items and loose AP balls closer to him
Circle forward – Bob n’ Weave: Essentially it’s a forward dodge that can also be a counter. It’s a lot quicker and keeps him facing in the same direction though. It will be the only counter in the game that also moves you forward. Since the King’s moveset is mostly close to mid-range, this allows him to close the distance and automatically dodge when projectiles are being shot at him and counter if a melee hit is thrown. A nod to his boxing days
Circle Up – Katamari Cousins: Lobs a katamari cousin in an arcing direction. Katamari cousins are similar to pikmin in brawl in that they will latch onto an opponent and slowly give small amounts of AP to the King. Katamari Cousins only stay attached for a few seconds
Circle Down – Anti-grav Punch: Punches the ground so hard that it create a small shockwave around him. Any character that gets caught in it will slowly hover in the air at chest level to the King and rotate slowly. The opponents don’t float away, just hover in place, leaving them in the perfect position to get hit by a punch combo
Air Circle – same as above
Air Circle forward – Barrel Roll: This will be explained later
Air Circle Up – same as above
Air Circle Down – same as above. Crashes from the air to the ground similar to sly and sweet tooth
X Up – Enter Flight Mode: According to the King in Katamari Forever, he uses a “super special secret technique…that only he knows” that allows him to fly. In flight mode, the control stick allows him to fly around, changing his speed, altitude, direction, etc. All of the moves are the same as when he’s in the air. His Air Circle forward, the barrel roll, works as a quick forward dodge in the air but allows him to stay in flight mode and face the same direction. For example, if the king is flying at someone and they shoot a projectile at him, the king can barrel roll around the projectile and be ready to attack while the other character is still recovering. The King’s projectiles would have a set maximum distance that would prevent the king from flying out of reach of everyone and just raining meteors on everyone. Considering the King is built as a close to mid range character, flight would be an excellent way for the King to close the distance and would also make him wildly unique among everyone else. In order to keep this from breaking the game and making the King OP, there would be a "flight meter" above the King's super meter. The "flight meter" will quickly drain as the King is in flight mode. The meter will recharge anytime flight mode isn't activated
X - Exit Flight Mode
Throw Forward – Eyes have you Now: The King grabs his opponent and fires a continuous eye laser point blank at them. He lets go, still firing his eye laser, and his opponent begins to stumble backwards before being completely knocked away by a powerful blast of the lasers.
Throw Up – You’re a Star: The King lets go on his opponent and does the hand motion that he does in the katamari games when he is creating a star. His opponent slowly floats into the air and then explodes
Throw Down - Make a Wish: The King punches his opponent hard in the stomach while holding them with the other hand. The king lets go and takes a step back as his opponent begins to hunch over. A meteor then drops out of the sky, smashing the opponent into the ground
Level 1 Super - The Royal Slap: The King disappears and you see his giant hand appear (the hand that pops up to stop you when you're rolling out of bounds in katamari). His hand is facing towards the camera with his forearm going into the background. The King's hand slaps forward, killing anyone that gets hit
Level 2 Super – The Royal Rolling: The King demands his son, the prince, to roll a katamari around the screen. You control the prince with the analog stick and every time he rolls the katamari into an opponent, they get stuck to it and the katamari gets bigger. After a few seconds, the king makes the hand gesture he makes when creating a star and the katamari (with the other players stuck to it) rises into the air and explodes into a star. Can get up to 3 kills with this super
Level 3 Super – The Royal Rainbow: A speech bubble in the same style as the katamari games pops up where the King says “We are no longer amused, little ones. Time to face our…”, the camera zooms on the King’s face that is now angry, “ROYAL JEALOUS RAGE!” The King’s head is huge and floating above the battlefield. It can be moved left and right with the control stick but can’t be moved up and down. Pressing any of the attack buttons with make the King shoot rainbows out of his mouth straight down. HIs rainbow beams go straight through every platform on the map. Can get around the same amount of kills as any other human controlled level 3 super.
Intro 1 - Our King Arrives: The king descends to the ground with his head looking down. He quickly whips one of his arms out and looks up at the camera
Intro 2 - Rainbow Road: A Rainbow stream slams the ground and the king walks out of it
Intro 3 - Ding Ding: The king throws a few jabs at the camera
Intro 4 - We are NOT Amused: The king is sitting on his throne. He slams his hands down on the arms of the chair while standing up, looking absolutely livid
Win Outro 1 - Hail to the King: The King, looking unimpressed, sits down on his throne and crosses one of his legs
Win Outro 2 - Royal Rainbow: The king moves his hand in an arc over his head and a rainbow appears over him, following his hand
Win Outro 3 - Joyous Song: The King is playing his guitar while sitting crosslegged on the ground. The Prince is dancing in front of him
Win Outro 4 - King of Kings: The queen swoons into the king's open arms and the king heroically looks off into the distance
Lose Outro 1 - Hail to the King: The king, looking enraged, stomps down his foot, and then turns around with his back facing the camera
Lose Outro 2 - Royal Rainbow: The king is sitting crosslegged on the ground with his arms crossed and looking angry. Theres a rain cloud raining on top of him
Lose Outro 3 - Joyous Song: The king looks offscreen to the left and is then rolled up by a katamari
Lose Outro 4 - King of Kings: The queen angrilly wags her finger at the king, who is looking down at the ground, defeated
Win Stat Screen: The King is sitting on his throne with one leg crossed, looking unimpressed
Lose Stat Screen: The King is facing his back to the camera with his arms crossed. Periodically he looks over his shoulder and shakes his head, still looking enraged
Taunt 1 - Beauty Rest: A hammock appears floating in the air and the king takes a small nap on it
Taunt 2 - We Love Fireworks: The king snaps his fingers and a flurry of fireworks go off behind him
Taunt 3 - Loquacious King: The King crosses his arms and a katamari speech box appears over the character information and time limit at the bottom of the screen. In this speech bubble, the king says something random that has nothing to do with the match such as “do bacteria use cell phones also?” or “cats are a lot like house plants”. The king is known in the katamari games for saying random things, never shutting up, and having his speech bubbles obstruct your vision when you are trying to play through a level. This taunt would most likely tick off players so much that they would want to come after him, the exact purpose of a taunt.
Block: The king faces his body and face towards the camera and holds one hand out in a halting motion towards the attacker. Talk to the hand
Minion: His minion would be the Prince of All Cosmos
Victory Theme 1: Katamari on the Rocks (The Katamari Series Theme Song) (Either 1:07-1:17, 3:22-3:32, or 5:43-5:53)
Victory Theme 2: King of Kings (The King of All Cosmos' Theme Song) (From 0:17-0:27)
The King's Icons and Backgrounds: (created by retrosoul22)
Arcade Mode: All of the bold words in the quotations will be done with a mute narration like in katamari forever. A mute narration is when the narrator's text appears at the bottom of the screen but no voice is actually heard. All words in italics are describing what is happening in the still pictures.
Arcade Mode Intro: The King is sitting in bed reading a book. "Having rebuil the universe multiple times completely singlehandedly, our handsome and beloved King finally gets to treat himself to some well-deserved beauty rest." The King puts his head back on his pillow, closes his eyes and begins to snore. Various sounds from all-stars are heard such as character quotes, announcer quotes, explosions, etc. The King opens his eyes and sits up and the sounds stop. He lies back down and begins to snore again and the sounds start again. He sits up once again and the sounds stop. He puts his head down one last time and closes his eyes. Then the sounds start again. The music begins to get more intense and frantic. "But what's this? A terrible ruckus that's keeping our King awake? How will he maintain his beautiful presence, his rippled physique, his lightning fast wit, and unparalleled intelligence if he can't get any sleep? Oh the horror! Someone needs to tell those ungrateful hooligans to pipe down!" Close-up on the King's eyes as they open, looking enraged. The prince is fast asleep in his own room. The King slams his door open and the Prince wakes up startled. "Wake up, little prince! We have work to do!"
Arcade mode Outro: The King is shown opening the door to his house with the Prince by his foot. "Our King returns victorious! But was there really any doubt? Of course not!" The King is sitting in his bed again. "Now he can finally get his much derserved rest." The King puts his head on his pillow and closes his eyes. "But what's this? An incredible power, a tremendous energy now surging through his royal veins. What joy! What ecstasy! Why our King can't possibly sleep now!" Close-up on the King's eyes as they open. The prince is fast asleep in his own room. The King slams his door open agian and the Prince wakes up startled. "Wake up, little prince, and roll some katamaris!" The King's body gains that blue aura all of the characters get in their arcade mode outros. "We're working the graveyard shift!"
Rival: One of the best things about the King is he can quite literally be rivals with anyone.
1. Kratos (Kratos kills gods)
3. Chimera (If the chimera infect the entire earth, there would be no normal people left to love the King anymore. This would upset the King very much as he's a little obsessed with getting earth people to love him. -suggestion by joblade)
4. Sora (The king may have an issue with Sora's planet jumping ways, accusing him of MEDDLING! When Sora says he is under the jurisdiction of king mickey, the King would say the cosmos are his domain, not mickey's)
5. Lara Croft (She finds his crown and believes it to be an ancient artifact. When the King walks up to ask for it back, she can't understand him and believes him to be the guardian, spirit, or curse that protects this artifact)
6. Snake/Big Boss (Snake hears the katamari music faintly getting louder so he hides under a cardboard box. The music gets really loud and the prince rolls a katamari right over top of him, sticking the box to the katamari but leaving snake right where he is on the ground. Snake would angrily approach the prince and try to get his box of the katamari. The King sees whats going on and tries to explain to snake that his box is stuck to the katamari now and perhaps he should get a new box. Snake is angered by this)
7. Abe (The King could become jealous of the diety worship that Abe's people partake in because its to other gods than himself. - suggestion by joblade)
8. Yu Narukami (He sees Izanagi, yu's persona, and is angered that another god in on his turf. He could mention something along the lines of izanagi being a jerk to him in high school. -suggestion by retrosoul22)
9. Klonoa (Both of their games have heavy connections to dreams. Also both owned by Namco Bandai. -suggestion by retrosoul22)
10. Ammaterasu (Both games focus heavily on creating stars and japanese culture. The King is a god and Ammaterasu is a goddess. -suggestion by retrosoul22)
11. Robbit (Robbit would confuse the King for Captain Kabuki, the main villian from Jumping Flash 2. -suggestion by retrosoul22)
12. Crash (That's right. It's possible to make a crash rivalry for him haha. The King always breaks the fourth wall and knows that katamari is a video game. He could be enraged that Crash was the most requested character for all-stars over himself)
Heihachi's level 3 Animation: Every character has a custom animation when they are tied to heihachi's rocket during his level 3. If Heihachi uses his level 3 when the King is in the match, the prince will be the one strapped to the rocket, panicking and struggling to escape. The King himself will be either sitting on top of the rocket or leaning against the rocket next to the prince and shaking his head disapprovingly as if to say "really? you let him get his level 3?" (suggestion by retrosoul22)
Stage Mash-up Ideas: Kingdom Hearts X Katamari: The stage starts off with the players fighting in traverse town. Everything seems to be going normally until rips into space start appearing. Suddently there is a flash of white light in the background and everyone is space, with the ground and platforms now being made of stardust. The robo-king is in the background. He accidently destroyed all the stars again! He summons various katamari cousins to roll up objects to make the worlds again. The players will have to dodge various katamaris rolling horizontally across the stage. Every now and then the robo-king will take a finished katamari and explode it in the air, making some of the stars appear. Sometimes the gummi ship will shoot at the robo-king, prompting him to shoot his eye lasers at it. After a long time, the robo-king will lift up the last katamari causing an explosion that turns the background completely white again. When the light fades, the players are back in traverse town, which looks just like it did at the beginning of the match. (-idea by Count Mario)
Background: His background would have katamari cousins rolling katamaris everywhere. The "searching for opponents" screen would look like this:
Default Costume: We Love Katamari
Unlockable Costume: Katamari Forever
DLC Costume: Robo-King
Other Options for Costumes:
Me and My Katamari
Touch My Katamari
Thanks for reading guys. Please leave a comment and tell me what you think. And if you are going to leave a comment saying "the Prince would be better", "Katamari isn't playstation all star material", or "the King is too big to fit in the arenas", PLEASE read my old thread first -> (http://community.us.playstation.com/t5/PlayStation-All-Stars-Battle/The-King-of-All-Cosmos-as-a-Poss...). It addresses those concerns and may change your mind.
Thanks again guys!
