Ichirin may canonically be nothing more than Unzan's hitbox, but this sturdy youkai ascetic is capable of holding her own. Of course Unzan, being the old man that he is, tends to get tired after taking some punishment, which leaves Ichirin nearly defenseless. If Ichirin is going to call herself a "Stardust Crusader", she's going to need to know when to go solo and when to call Unzan into the fray.

Gameplay

Ichirin RP-Idle

Ichirin is technically a six-button character, but plays like a standard three-button character, using the Button-xyz buttons for the majority of her moveset and the Button-abc buttons mostly as shortcut motions; (A)Button-a can be used in combination with Button-F or Button-B to act as a shortcut for the character's respective Button-F Button-F and Button-B Button-B dash commands, (B)Button-b is used as a shortcut for the character's grab on (Y)Button-y+(Z)Button-z, while (C)Button-c can used as a shortcut for Button-xyz3 part of the character's level 3 Hypers, but primarily serves the purpose of summoning or de-summoning Unzan. At the beginning of the match, Ichirin must select from one of two mutually-exclusive Level 3 Hypers; "King Kraken Strike" has Unzan deliver a flurry of punches with projectile properties that expand across the screen, while "Thunderous Rage of an Angry Old Man" provides Ichirin with a command grab. All four of the character's Hypers will automatically cause Unzan to become active if Unzan is inactive at the time the moves are used, allowing Ichirin the opportunity to always successfully use one even if Unzan isn't currently active.

Borrowing from a similar mechanic from JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Heritage for the Future, Ichirin is able to summon and desummon her nyuudou partner Unzan with (C)Button-c. While Unzan is active, many of Ichirin's attacks will change properties; many of her moves gain increased damage, while Ichirin gains an entirely new set of Normal attacks. For instance, Raging Running Fist while Unzan is inactive will cause Unzan to attack the opponent as a projectile, whilst performing the same moves while Unzan is active will cause Ichirin to attack with Unzan as a melee attack with drastically increased damage. It should also be noted that some of Ichirin's Specials can only be performed while Unzan is active.

Ichirin is not without her flaws, however. Like the stands in JoJo's Bizarre Adventure, Unzan has his own gauge that will deplete as Ichirin takes damage; once this gauge reaches 0, Unzan will become unavailable until the gauge fully recharges, leaving Ichirin without access to any of her Specials or Hypers. Ichirin can circumvent this somewhat by pressing (C)Button-c again to desummon Unzan, causing his gauge to regenerate at a slightly faster rate, but this leaves Ichirin unable to use her more useful Unzan-only tools. While Ichirin is quite sturdy with her above average Life value, she also suffers from reduced mobility compared to most characters, and is unable to chain her (Y)Button-y Normals into her (Z)Button-z Normals. In addition to this, many of her Unzan-active moves greatly increase the size of her hurtbox, making her a larger target.

Despite Ichirin having what can be considered a form of custom A.I., it has practically nothing in the way of optimisation to account for the character's playstyle and moveset, therefore it provides only the slightest bit more of a challenge in comparison to M.U.G.E.N's mostly passive default A.I. The A.I. spends most of its time dashing around the stage at randomised and erratic intervals when it's not right up close to an opponent, only stopping occasionally to do a random variant of the Raging Running Fist Special; should its dashing escapades bring it within close proximity to an opponent, it will still maintain usage of Raging Running Fist, but will start throwing out random Normals or use the grab, in addition to rarely using Handful of Floating Cloud. Ichirin's A.I. will not make effective use of summoning or de-summoning Unzan, nor will it ever resort to activating Hanging Cloud's Iron Hammer, North Mountain Wind of Mercy, or any of the character's Hypers.

Trivia

  • Due to the nature of Ichirin's relationship with Unzan, as well as the character's unique mechanic, Ichirin contains numerous references to JoJo's Bizarre Adventure;
    • Palettes 7, 8, and 9 all correspond to Jotaro Kujo's colors throughout JoJo's Bizarre Adventure. Coincidentally, if these palettes are selected, Unzan's colors will change to a blueish purple that resembles Star Platinum's colors, the stand used by Jotaro. These are the only instances where Unzan's palette can be changed.
    • Several state controllers in Ichirin's -2 state that are related to Unzan's functionality will deliberately refer to him as Star Platinum.
    • The pose made by Ichirin during Raging Running Fist strongly resembles a similar pose used by both Jotaro and DIO whenever they use their similar attacks involving their stands Star Platinum and The World, respectively.
    • Ichirin's 1st victory quote against herself is yet another reference to JoJo's Bizarre Adventure.
    • The voice clips used by Unzan are pitch-shifted versions of Star Platinum's voice clips from JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Heritage for the Future.
    • If M.U.G.E.N's debug mode and hitbox viewers are turned on during "King Kraken Strike", Unzan's fists will display the internal name of "Is this a Jojo reference?".
    • Comments in the character's files contain other lines, such as "Its not a Jojo meme you dip!"
