Deepest Swordsman

The Deepest Swordsman hails from the game Deepest Sword, a game created by Cosmic Adventure Squad. The game centers around a swordsman carrying a sword to slay a dragon with a deep wound to retrieve their kidnapped cat, which requires a deep blade to get all the way inside. Challenge amps up as the bigger your sword is, the harder it is to walk around.

The Deepest Swordsman is a bit of a joke character, having one attack that is their sword which can be increased in length by dying or using their Level 1 Finisher Sword Length+. Their range and weight is determined by sword length, but their attack strength stays the same. They also have two other finishers- temporarily doubling the length of the max size sword and a powerful dragon fire attack that can be used to get even more damage.

Gimmick: Sword Length

The Deepest Swordsman utilizes a blade in their attack that extends when they utilize their Level 1 Finisher, which permanently upgrades the size of their sword. This extends the reach of their blade but also makes them heavier and harder to move around at times. Additionally, they lack tilt attacks, with the second control stick being how they move the sword around.
The Deepest Swordsman performs a cutting attack with their blade, which deals 8-10 damage, with 20 damage done at the tip. Tilt downwards towards the swing animation to instead have the Deepest Swordsman aim at the floor, bouncing them into the air, which doesn't count as one of their two jumps and has additional spiking properties. Each upgrade to the sword length increases the range of the attack and how high The Deepest Swordsman goes in the air.

Sword Length+
Level 1
The Blacksmith upgrades The Deepest Swordsman's blade length to the next tier, increasing the length of it permanently. This subsists even after stocks and this upgrade can also occur if The Deepest Swordsman loses a stock. After upgrading the sword to the longest length, Deepest Blade becomes the new Level 1 Finisher.
Deepest Blade
Level 2

The Deepest Swordsman temporarily upgrades their blade to be twice as long as the highest available tier for permanent sword upgrades, attacking with it as they perform a running charge, dealing a skewering 30 damage to anyone caught in their path. They run to the edge of the main platform before their sword turns back to normal.

Judgemental Dragon
Level 3
The Dragon from Deepest Sword appears from the bottom of the screen and judges the opponents weapon, which then is dealt with a single flame breath that deals 45 damage and inflicts Burn. The Dragon will gravitate towards the opponent with the smallest weapon.
