Create a Character Dissidia Edition – Vol.03 : Shadow

I love the Dissidia games immensely, especially the second one, Dissidia 012 Duodecim. So, as you can guess, I want to contribute to the game and its community and try and “create” a new character for it. For this instalment, I give you the Assassin with a heart of gold from Final Fantasy VI, Shadow.

Shadow(Formerly known as Clyde)

– Description :

– Story and Character :

A former thief and member of the phantom troupe “Shadow”, now a cold assassin that never reveales his face. His only true companion now is his faithfull dog named Interceptor. Despite him killing his feelings so that he won’t face his past he has feelings for his estranged wife and daughter as well as the FFVI party. If he is voiced, I hope it’s by Tanaka Hideyuki in japanese and by Michael Ironside in english.

His story can be read here.

His manikin counterpart is called “Empty Threat” and has a dark grey colour.

– Costumes :

[Normal costume] The Nomura rendition of the Amano look.
[Alternative costume # 1] The Amano look.
[Alternate costume # 2] His Clyde thief costume from when he was in the “Shadow”.

– Equipment :

[Weapons] Swords, Daggers, Thrown Weapons
[Hand Armour] Parrying Weapons, Shields, Bangles, Gauntlets
[Head Armour] Hats, Headbands
[Body Armour] Clothing, Robes, Light Armour

– Exclusives :

EX.)[Hand Armour] Genji Shield (Final Fantasy VI version) : Level 100, DEF +60, BRV +100 Adds the Genji Shield (Final Fantasy VI version) on his left arm for all of the costumes.
01.)Assassin’s Dagger : Level 01, ATK +5 Changes the simple Kunai (Final Fantasy VI version) of Shadow into the Assassin’s Dagger (Final Fantasy VI version) for all of the costumes.

– Battle Style :

Shadow’s fighting style is called Assassin. Shadow is a very quick and defensive-oriented character that focuses on medium to strong counterattacks with his dog, Interceptor and swift knife strikes to emphasize on his former profession as a thief. He is made with a mixed and much more defensive playstyle of Strider Hiryu and Rikimaru in mind as well as with the more traditional “Throw” mechanism that ninjas use in Final Fantasy.

Unique Ability :

If Shadow blocks there is a 50% chance that Interceptor will attack the stunned character with either “Wild Fang” or “Takedown” unless they are in the air or both characters are in the air, which in this case, Shadow uses a human version of these attacks.

EX Burst : Shadow Fang

Shadow throws a kunai at the opponent stunning him while Interceptor jumps and attacks the enemy, while Shadow and his mirage conjure some hand signs. During that time the player has to press a certain direction on the d-pad and a button to fill both bars before a time limit(same as Tina’s). The direction and buttons change every time via random generatior. After the gauges are filled or the time limit is up he attacks the enemy along with his mirage image with slash attacks that resemble a fang of an animal each time. The more the gauges are filled, the more attacks will be done.
