Hercules in New York- Theme / Hercules in New York- Board Blockade

New Hercules is the 29th fighter in Original Lawl.

New Herc is a man with strong muscles coming from a film with no mind, which is represented in Hercules' fit stats and using things like poor edit-cuts to his advantage, enough to swiftly knock-out opponents and prove that no-one shall triumph over a son of Zeus.

Entrance - Deity Desertion

New Hercules falls from the sky, then gets up and says "I'm Hurr-Kiu-Lis".

New Herc takes 5% damage from the fall.


Standard B- New Disc

New Hercules, for some reason, dresses like a fisherman, and pretends to throw a disk. But, it has no effect! However, the next time New Herc presses B (anywhere on the stage), the disc will be thrown from the location he originally pressed B, dealing some good damage with great range.

Side B- Random Chariot

New Herc begins riding a chariot, yelling "Chariot!" while moving forward. If he comes in contact with an opponent, they will "GET TO DAH chariot!" and will constantly take damage. Pressing A will have him whip opponents, as B stops him altogether. Pressing B in the air makes New Herc helpless and will allow trampled enemies to recover, So don't do that.

Up B- Jump Cut

New Hercules jumps into the air, as choosing a direction will allow him to immediately reappear in that location, dealing damage to opponents. Not choosing a direction will make him fall, though.

Down B- Stoplank

New Hercules will take out a long wooden plank to act as a make-shift wall, which he will constantly be holding. This protects him from grabs only from the front, and any non-projectile attacks will be countered for base damage. He can only move forwards and backwards with no jumps. The whole time, he will be vulnerable to attacks from the back. Down B will undo this formation.

Final Smash- Solution

New Hercules will be standing in between two large tankers, struggling. The battle will cut to New Zeus (in a cutscene), whom, watching over his son, exclaims "No mortal shall triumph over a son of Zeus!". He then proceeds to throw a plastic thunderbolt, which gives New Herc strength, enough so to topple over the two tankers, which do a lot of damage. This attack is performable in the air, which is the suggested way to use this smash on a flat stage.

Character Description

New Hercules, while not the best, is still the strongest. He was appropriately portrayed by Hollywood's favorite Austrian bodybuilder, Arnold Schwarzenegger. New Hercules (otherwise known as Arnold Strong) has the strength and build of a god, yet he easily grows bored of living on Mt. Olympus, looking for some excitement in New York. And, of course, he's all brawn and NO brain.
