Items: Laser Cannon, Oil Slick, and Watermelon

Name: Watermelon

Universe: Yoshi

Debut: Super Mario World 2: Yoshi’s Island

Element: None

Item Class: Projectile

Rarity: Uncommon

The Watermelon is a item from the Yoshi series which gave Yoshi watermelon seed spitting power. Yoshi was able to unload a spew of watermelons eeds at foes; especially monkeys. When eaten, by pressing A, a spew of watermelon seeds come from the character’s mouth. It only does 1% damage but it can shoot out 20 seeds in total. It doesn’t cause flinching; much like Fox’s lasers.

Name: Oil Slick

Universe: Super Mario Bros.

Debut: Super Mario Kart

Element: Dark

Item Class: Performance

Rarity: Uncommon

The Oil Slick was an item that caused karts to skid and wipe out in the original Super Mario Kart. However, this has been replaced by bananas. This aspect returns in SSB4! When thrown on the ground, it creates a medium sized puddle of oil. Whenever a character steps on it, they slip much like a banana but keeps slipping until they some how maneuver out of the oil slick. However, be careful because it can affect the player who first used the Oil Slick.

Name: Laser Cannon

Universe: Super Smash Bros.

Debut: Super Smash Bros. 4

Element: Lightning

Item Class: Projectile

Rarity: Rare

The Laser Cannon is a powerful laser-based arsenal that fire four laser beams. The laser beams themselves do not do much damage but it can be fired 5 times without charging up. The beams shoot out straight but twirl together as they get farther away from the cannon. The beams do 10% damage and can fire 5 times. However, it takes 20 seconds for it to recharge. It can only recharge 3 times before it becomes defective and runs out of charges. It is also cumbersome and players can’t dash or double jump while holding it (much like the Cracker Launcher).

My Thoughts

I was always wanting the Watermelon as an item. I’m hoping SSB4 is when it will finally be included. As for the Oil Slick and Laser Cannon, these were ideas I had for a slipping type item and a laser based item that is basically a stronger version of the Ray Gun.
