Characters


With his trusty backpack ready, Skip is ready to dive into a new adventure!

Inspired by collectathon platformers like A Hat in Time and Super Mario 64, Skip is designed for seamless movement across the levels with his simple yet hard to master abilities. Let's go over what Skip can do!

If you wanna get a quick rundown, here's a very helpful cheat sheet by my good friend Emi!
Spoiler: TL;DR


Name:  baby.png
Views: 9023
Size:  1.1 KBDouble Jump!
The standard double jump. Skip can't damage enemies while jumping unless he lands on them, so be careful! Nothing really interesting at face value, but you'll be thankful to have it once we go over the next ability...

Size:  1.1 KBDive!
By pressing Spin, Skip lunges forwards. While diving, you can hurt enemies from all sides. If you land while diving, you'll slide on the ground - which can be used for sliding down slopes or even triggering those pesky DSZ2 spindash wheels!
Skip's first dive makes him go slightly higher, while the second dive doesn't. This ability is key for combat and maneuverability through the levels, since you can stay on the air far longer than usual. Be careful though, crashing on a wall will make you bounce off it!

Name:  baby.png
Views: 9023
Size:  1.1 KBMonitor Crafting!
That backpack ain't for nothing! Destroying badniks and ring monitors will drop scraps that you can use for crafting monitors! Stand still and press Spin + Jump to open up the crafting menu. For a fair price, you can craft yourself your own shields to use on ANY level, including shields not present in the vanilla campaign! Skip is also able to keep any shield he carries through stages. Be careful though, getting hit without a shield or even dying will drop scrap, that other players might be able to snatch!
Use the movement keys to cycle through the monitors available, press Up to turn them into a Golden Monitor (That costs much more). Press Jump to craft and Spin to leave the menu.

And that's not all! You're probably saying to yourself "Hey, I don't need no shields to play!", well hold your tongue and listen - Shields now serve a secondary purpose...

Views: 9023
Size:  1.1 KBShield Abilities!

Shields change how you play Skip completely. Depending on what shield you wield, your Dive will be powered up differently! This makes some monitors more expensive than others, but they all have their strengths and weaknesses! Try 'em all if you can, see what best suits your playstyle!

Here's a handy cheat sheet from my friend Emi again!
Spoiler: Shield Abilities


Spoiler: All abilities shown

Views: 9023
Size:  1.1 KBExtras!

If you know me, there's always some more fun extras to look out for. As always I encourage you go out and find them out yourself, but here ya go!
Spoiler:
  • Particles galore for Skip's abilities!
  • running dust clouds and footsies sfx because i find it really cute okay
  • a dizzying continue
  • a very smol fox boy
  • Fireworks!
  • Custom NiGHTS sprites!
  • Gather all the Chaos Emeralds for a Steam Summer Sale Event (tm)
  • sPINNING HURT FRAMES
  • Afraid of the dark? Press Custom 1!
  • Be friendly and kind to others by hugging them with Custom 2 - you can also hug back!
  • No one's around to help
  • Life is hard, life is stressful
  • I need some peace and tranquility
  • I don't need to prove myself to anyone [Toss Flag]

I haven't even played this character yet and I'm already digging this. Those abilities encompass multiple gimmicks that I myself would have loved to utilize and play around with. Not to mention I really like the character design!

Man I love Skip. He is really fun to play as and has a really good design.
I will say that he is one of my favorite fan characters that SRB2 community has created so far. I like the idea of a character that is able to craft things thanks to what he gets through his journey and the enemies he destroys. Sometimes he can be really hard to play as. Defeating bosses is kinda like a challenge to me. But thanks to his ability of creating shield monitors, everything becomes more easy. While playing with him I used SRB2's vanilla electric shield which to me is actually really helpful. My only problem with Skip is that when you look at him in some angles his sprites look a little weird. Good job making this character, it's awesome.

edit: Also, I would suggest adding a command that turns off the dust Skip does while running.

Very fun and well designed character! Brings a new layer of gameplay to SRB2, which you don't see a whole lot in character mods. Unfortunately, I hit a brick wall at the Metal Sonic battle because in the difficulty of hurting him instead of just jumping through him.

Metal Sonic really picky on how you're able to make him hit-able (I've had similar issues with Spyro). Try constructing an Attraction Shield Monitor and using the shield's given homing dive ability. The real challenge then is to not yeet yourself off the stage.

While I have no plans on making Skip be able to hit enemies in the air like spin characters can, unless people scream about it enough, I do encourage using Golden Monitors in his fight. By that point in the game you should already have enough scrap to at least afford an Attraction one. My best advice is to land before you hit him after the spinout, then you'll have your double jump and second dive ready to correct your midair position and avoid falling.

On the other hand, I want to thank you all for the support on my OC. I really didn't expect him to be this welcomed and loved, so I am incredibly grateful to each and every one of you!

As soon as I read your name I remembered your YouTube channel. I'd tell you about it right here but I don't think this is the place (or maybe time) for it. I'll knit up a thread about your channel later today, though.

i swear, Skip and Silver does a good team together: Silver just kills badniks, while Skips grabs the junk and creates shields
i'll recommend it if you want some defense and more fun

So this is that character who was in one of my personalized SM64 copy?

Jokes aside, I love this character. His moveset is fun, and the monitor crafting feature is unique! The Dive reminds me of SM64, which is a good thing. But here, with the Double Jump, it's so much more fun using the Dive than in SM64. My favorite shield ability with this character is the Infinite Dive. Very fun to use and is good for speedruns. I have no complaints related to this character. Keep up the good work!

I wonder when you'll re-release the Toby Fox mod you made in 2.1.X.
Great mod btw, I came here from BlueBlur TV's youtube channel.

I seem to have bad luck when trying out these mods because I sometimes get weird errors when playing. For this character, I get this error:

This may also be the reason why I can't crouch or use the backpack.
