Image + Name Info


Limewire was a free software that was used to torrent and download music until 2010, in which the case of Arista Records LLC v. Lime Group LLC shut it down, as the company offered a "professional" version of the software at a fee. It languished in infamy for being a virus magnet and for some reason a company has revived the name as a NFT music platform? Limewire in Blight Bastions is a spinning ball that continues to be a virus magnet, having found itself in the Black Hole to try give the denizens free music.

Limewire is a bizarre fighter who is based off torrenting software, able to attack by leeching health, setting down "seeds" that can be used for its other moves, magnetizing foes, or shooting burning discs across the ground. It can also download whole movesets unlike similar copy characters, although randomly it will also take on "virus" moves that damage itself with bizarre properties.

Gimmick: Peer 2 Peer

Limewire can use their Level 1 Finisher, Download to copy their opponent's special moves (Neutral, Side, Down, and Up specials) although randomly one of their moves will be a "virus" move that tends to be bad for Limewire and replaces one of their special inputs. They can eject this moveset using their taunt, which pushes out the moveset as a burnt CD that also doubles as a ground-based attack.
Limewire creates a "seed" underneath them, which appears as a lime green pixel that can be used as a trap. Limewire can set down up to ten of these "seeds" and then use Leech to speed through to these points on a path. They can also use Magnet Link to drag the seeds back to them. Seeds can also stick to opponents if they make contact with them. Leech
Limewire rolls forward, leeching health of opponents they slam into for 2 health points per hit. If they were seeded before, this increases to 6 health points per hit. Additionally, Limewire will speed across automatically to "seeds" they've previously laid.
Magnet Link
Limewire rises up in the air as they bring all "seeds" previously planted towards them, including those stuck to opponents, which drag the opponents to Limewire. Limewire then pulses to deal 7 electrical shock damage, sending the opponent blasting upwards. Burn DISC

Limewire sends out a burning disc that deals 8 damage and inflicts Burn as it speeds across the ground. It is considered a physical projectile and comes out fast, although only two can be sent out a time. A heavy attack or reflect move can reflect the direction of the disc backwards, doubling it's damage. It flies off edges.

When Limewire has downloaded a opponent's moveset, Limewire can taunt to release a Burn DISC that deals 16 damage but makes them revert back to their original moveset.
Virus Moves
Limewire makes a clicking sound before seeming to freeze in place before suddenly distorting to become black and dealing 19 dark damage to themselves, as well as being inflicted with Wither. Opponents that touch Limewire when they turn black will also be inflicted with Wither. b^gb1t3.exe

Limewire deals 9 damage to itself as it sucks in any available currency from other opponents to heal itself, up to 10 health points. For characters like Walter White or Kyoko, it can steal up to 100 dollars, while for opponents that use currency to summon characters like Captain Phasma or AUTO it can only steal up to 10 of their troop building points.
Level 1
Limewire scans and then "downloads" the opponent's data to their system, copying their special attacks. However, this comes with a catch. Randomly, one of their moves will be replaced with a "virus" attack, which is listed above. Any of these virus attacks can be attached to any of Limewire's inputs when they have a copied moveset.
Level 2
Limewire attempts to load in a new track for the stage but suddenly the background becomes the Windows 95 blue screen of death, which freezes opponents in place for 7 seconds before the stage reboots. Limewire can attack freely during this time, being unneffected by it. Great for chaining combos or attaching "seeds" to opponents.
Level 3
Limewire inflicts one of their virus moves onto the opponent, dealing 15 damage as well to them with a rolling attack. They are stuck with the virus move on one of their inputs for 30 seconds before it finally wears off. When a opponent is inflicted with a virus move, they will have a Limewire icon above their head for the duration. Additionally, Limewire can teleport 1 seed onto them at any time for the duration of the 30 seconds.

Saul Goodman gives a testimony for his client.
Your honor, my client is a torrenting program, not a pirating program! What users do peer-to-peer cannot be moderated under any reasonable circumstance. What Metallica is asking for is unreasonable and besides, the numbers they're claiming to have lost on my client's part are entirely speculative, if not fictional. James Hetfield, let's get lunch instead of dragging out this frivilous lawsuit any further, hm?
