Charizard is a Fire/Flying-type Pokémon from the Pokémon series that has been a playable character in the Super Smash Bros. series starting from Super Smash Bros. Brawl, as well as making an appearance as a playable character in the 3D fighting game, Pokkén Tournament. It is the final evolution of Charmander, which is the Fire-type starter Pokémon of the Kanto region, and has two Mega Evolutions known as Mega Charizard X and Mega Charizard Y. It appears at #006 in both the Kanto and National Pokédexes.
The fire from Charizard's mouth is hot enough to melt boulders, as well as accidentally cause forest fires. The flame at the tip of its tail also burns more intensely as the fires from Charizard's mouth grows hotter, turning to whitish-blue color whenever it is enraged or Mega Evolves into Mega Charizard X. Its wings are strong enough to allow Charizard to fly at altitudes as high as 4,600 feet, with it capable of reaching even higher altitudes when it becomes Mega Charizard Y.
Designed for AxKing's Pokémon-based full game he never finished, Charizard has a moveset consisting of only four attacks that can be charged if their respective button is held down. Charizard cannot run forwards nor jump back via the usual methods, instead being able to jump forwards and backwards through and , respectively.
Charizard, while somewhat powerful, lacks the ability to combo any of its attacks together, other than into itself, which can deal large amounts of damage and even an infinite if timed well enough. Due to its limited moveset, this can make Charizard rather boring to play as and fight against, especially the latter, given its lack of A.I. programming, though as mentioned prior, it was likely designed for a full game environment over standard M.U.G.E.N.

Based on the Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS and Wii U incarnation of Charizard, this version may appear slow, but its Hypers really pack a punch. Its size allows it to cover large distances, though while one would assume this would make it easier to hit, the infinite priority on its attacks makes its size less of a disadvantage and more of a blessing; if only Ridley could've been this lucky.
