    Why aren't there an overabundance of MOTU Mugen characters??

    I'm directing this thread at those who are into Mugen and know what it is. Anyhow, I recently got into Mugen and have been scouring the net for Masters of the Universe characters. Well, She-Ra is essentially the only MOTU character that exists for the game. I got Lion-O too, although he isn't MOTU as we all know. In my search I learned there is one guy who is creating a He-Man and Skeletor for the Mugen engine. Out of all of the MOTU fans that may be into Mugen only TWO people have created or are creating MOTU characters for use in the game. Whats the deal??? Almost all DC and Marvel characters exist for the game(save for Supergirl who only THREE people who are still working on her) yet only ONE MOTU character exists for the game, She-Ra.


    I'm bringing this up on a MOTU board because I'm curious if there are some Mugen players and creators who may know if MOTU characters for the game do exist but are some of those "hard to find" nonsense. Anyone know??

    The reason is because it is insanely hard to make characters from scratch. The author has to essentially animate every possible move of the character, which ends up being hundreds of frames of animation. Most Marvel and DC characters have had their sprites ripped from other games, such as Marvel vs Capcom. Since there are no games to rip MOTU characters from, they need to be created from scratch.

    I wish to see a proper He-Man and Skeletor in a fighting game one day!!

    That could apply to any character.

    I would say that it is due to the Mugen audience. If there were more MOTU fans who were also Mugen fans, there would likely be more MOTU Mugen characters. As it stands, there are very few, and of them, the chances are low that they know how to code/ design for Mugen.

    *sigh* Not very good news then. Well, I'm happy at least She-Ra and Lion-O made the cut for mugen, although it would be nice for them to have a simpler combo system. Having to press A,G,down left, horizontal right, backspace, 3, D, Z,K,P,Shift, space bar, R,Y, and Q in 1.5 seconds for a combo move to happen is usually why I don't bother learning any combos save for ones that only take the press of two or three buttons at the same time.

    that's what I figured most people did is make edits of existing sprites. Is the Peter Griffin I've seen made from scratch? I always figured he was an edit of the blob or something.

    I wish someone freaking jump on making them into playable mugen characters, all of those sprites are awesome.....although Teela was missing.


    Granted I'm happy She-Ra exists for the game, but damn wouldn't it be awesome to have the rest of the characters for mugen??? Enough anime guys already.


    On a related note, some guy going by the username of DDR made some awesome mugen guys of Captain Caveman, Popeye, Fat Albert, Underdog and more. So much potential with this mugen stuff, and alot is still being unfulfilled. Can you believe there STILL isn't a playable Supergirl for mugen yet?? Sure, three different developers are working on versions of Supergirl for the game, but why wasn't she thought up BEFORE for the game????

    same here and i was never sure if there were different versions. On youtube I've seen ones like Peter Griffin Vs Homer Simpson that have graphic style more like MVC. Then I've seen Wonder Woman Vs She-ra and the graphics look like that Justice League fighting game. And then there was Ash Vs Freddy Krueger and the graphics looked even more different.

    Hopefully the Masters Project will finish after all these years. The Skeletor and He-man videos on youtube looks awesome. They look like they were done for an SNK fighter. Very nice. The guy is apparently still updating his site, but it's just taking him a while to finish. I got that She-Ra one. Not that impressive, but fun enough.

    if that's the same she-ra that was fighting wonder woman in that vid i saw she is kinda cheap. Just about all she did in that video is summon her horse to run WW over.

    Me too. I've dabbled in it, but let me tell you...you have to draw EVERYTHING! Every little element. If you're only one guy, it can get overwhelming.

    I guess the easiest way is to draw the high points of the animation and then draw all the points inbetween. Photoshop really helps...especially if you got lots of elements on multiple layers to do transitions.

    But it can be very rewarding seeing the complete animation completed.

    I'd buy a MOTU/POP fighter if someone made it. I enjoy my 2d fighter games.
