All Star Smashers Character Moveset- Talking Joe

Entrance: Correct Door

Talking Joe opens a door with the correct answer on it.

Move Origin

Talking Joe has to choose the correct door in each room to escape from The House of Fear. If he chooses the wrong door, he gets attacked by something, mean he loses some blood.

Neutral B: Birthday Cake

Talking Joe says "Birthday Cake" and it will decend from the stage's ceiling. The more times you press B before the cake falls, the more candles it will have. More candles means the cake will do more damage. If the cake lands on someone they will be stuck on the ground. If it lands on the ground without touching someone, it will become edible. Touching the candles on top of the cake will also cause damage.

Move Origin

As seen in the Gallery's comic, TJ randomly says birthday cake after his learning supporter survived getting ran over by a bus. This caused a birthday cake to descend from the sky as whatever TJ says comes to life.

Side B: Brain Drain

Hold B and Talking Joe will diagonally pour water in front of him. If it touches the ground, it will create a puddle and a pink brain. Let go of B to stop pouring. The goo will act as a slip trap once the brain is out of the way. The size of the brain will depend on how much water you've poured on it. If the brain is small, it can be picked up and thrown. If it hits someone, it will bounce back to you. If the brain is big, it can be punched and kicked around the stage. If it hits someone, it will cause more damage and knockback before bouncing back.

Move Origin

In Nessy Learning Programme, there is a game called Brain Drain, taking place in The House of Fear where the learner/player has to answer questions. If you fill in empty sentences with the correct words, Dr. Strange (Not to be confused with the Marvel superhero) will add Brain Juice to the brain, making it smarter. However, if the learner/player answers incorrectly, Dr. Strange will suck Brain Juice out of the brain.

Up B: Falcon

Talking Joe says "Falcon" and it will come to life. TJ will grip onto the falcon and quickly fly in any direction possible. If B is pressed while riding the falcon, an egg will be dropped, but unlike Matthew, he won't get a boost up. To get off the bird press A. The yoak left on the ground is another slip trap TJ can use.

Move Origin

There is a comic thought up involving TJ and his parents visiting the aivary where TJ says "falcon" causing a falcon to escape from its cage and fly TJ to the sky.

Down B: Glynn goes Fishing

Talking Joe sits on a boat which increases his swim speed. He can't jump, but he can sail across the platform he's on causing damage to anyone he touches. It is best to perform this move on a platform above the main base because pressing B will make TJ drop the fishing line below him. If he catches someone with it, he will throw them behind him. Press A to hop off the boat. The fishing line can also catch items. If this move is done in mid air, the boat will nosedive as a nasty piranha drags it from the fishing line with its mouth.

Move Origin

Glynn goes Fishing is another Nessy game. In that game, you're playing as Glynn on a small boat, trying to pull dangerous pirannhas out of a lake. If Glynn catches one, he has to spell a spoken word correctly to fish it out of the water. If he mispells it, the pirannha will pull him into the water meaning he loses a life. If Glynn loses all of his lives, a giant pirannha is shown eating him meaning the game is over. 

Final Smash: Bus! Bus!

Talking Joe will say "Bus" to a Post 16 staff a bunch of times. He thinks he's telling him it's time to go home and refuses. But Talking Joe is actually warning him that a bus is coming. The bus rushes on his spot knocking anyone else who touches it.

Move Origin

In the same comic as in the gallery, TJ tries to warn his learning supporter that a bus is coming but the supporter thinks he is just begging to go home on it.

However, the bus drives in and runs over the supporter. The miracke is, he survived.
