So I'm sure you're all wondering just what exactly this thread is for. Well let me tell you!

Synopsis

You see, we are going to embark upon an epic endeavor. We're going to do what Compile Heart couldn't, and realize what has up until now only been a fantasy. We are going to pool our creative juices and make the recruitment of Rei Ryghts as playable character a reality!

Well not really, but I thought it might be a fun little activity to design what we'd like her character to be like.

However, this shall be no small undertaking; when I say we're going to design her character, I mean down to every last little detail... combo attacks, Ex Finishers, SP Skills, Battle Quotes, the whole shebang. So what do you guys say--are you up for this?

(There's only one right answer, btw.)

  • Triple Threat
    Rei freaks out, awkwardly kicking the enemy three times, pistol-whipping them twice, and finishing with a point blank blast to the face.

  • Azure Fangs
    Growing agitated, Rei fires off two high-powered blasts for high guard damage.
  • Scatter Beam
    Rei engages her ray gun's spread laser setting, firing a piercing spread of a dozen or more smaller beams simultaneously. Registers as a single, high guard damage hit.

This template will be updated and filled in as we progress through Rei's creation. The items in bolded blue are taken directly from the game, as I spent an inordinate amount of time letting Rei kick my ass so I could see everything she canonically had to offer.

Now obviously, we only ever were able to fight HDD Rei, so we'll need to brainstorm for her human form.
First and foremost, what kind of weapon we think she'd use.

Since this will need to be the first thing we decide, let's just get right to it.

Rei Ryghts: Weaponry

Personally, I can see Rei being similar to Plutia in the respect that her human and goddess weapons are vastly different from one another. Now, being the clumsy and confidence-lacking girl that she is, I would imagine Rei to use a weapon that can do most of the work for her.

Namely, a gun; probably a pistol of some kind. Compact, easy to use, and she can carry it around with her without any problems. Although, I believe it would suit her more if it were a firearm that shot condensed energy blasts similarly to Uni's rifle, as opposed to physical bullets.

In fact, I can kind of see Rei being the same kind of attacker that Compa was in HDN Mk2--kind of clumsy and all over the place with a variety of unorthodox, or even borderline silly attacks. It seems to me that this haphazard style would suit her human persona fairly well.

Now then. I want to hear what you guys have to say.
Let's give Rei the attention and development she deserves!

Also. I would kindly ask that those not interested in Rei, please keep to yourselves.

Ah, this reminds me of the Create Your Own Maker! thread. Such fond memories...

What about a wand? And it can make a magic blade if she wants to attack with it at close range.

EXE Drive: Light of Domination (Pretty sure in game it is a Magic Attack)

Well... as I mentioned, our first order of business is deciding upon the weapon Rei will use in human form.
Deciding skills will come later (since her Human skills will obviously depend upon her weapon).

Although--if you looked at the template, Light of Domination has already been incorporated as one of HDD Rei's SP Skills, as it lacked the detailed animation to qualify for something as epic as an EXE Drive.

Her EXE Drive would, obviously, have to be summoning up Tari and firing the Pongg Laser Cannon into enemies. ^^

I... hadn't thought of that, hahah! Ehem--but no.

So Rednal, what are your thoughts on Rei's weapon?
A gun? Pore's suggestion of a magic sword-wand? Or do you have an idea of your own?

Maybe her human form could consist of apologizing for attacking the enemy?

She uses a big staff in both the game and the anime, right? That seems like it would be the best weapon for her to have. ^^

Indeed, in her CPU form. But would she wield the same kind of weapon in human form, do you think?
Human Rei doesn't exactly seem like the coordinated type, eheh.

Oh what about costumes? All of the CPUs have them.

My ideas for them would be swimsuit, maybe Yoshino from Date a Live. What else would be good for her?

Perhaps. But we'll get to those later.
Right now I'd prefer to focus on figuring out her weapon, and then fleshing out her skill set.

We can leave the cosmetics for after we've designed her gameplay mechanics.

I see that I am needed here.

"Gun" is a pretty good place to start for a weapon for human Rei, but to add onto that, let's remember that Rei represents an era that's a fair bit older than our other CPUs. For that reason, I can imagine her weapon of choice being more old-fashioned looking and simple in design, like a Revolver or pistol. If we gave her a gun, I'd imagine her having pretty close range; as opposed to Uni she's clumsy and is too neurotic to aim all that well, so you'd need her in close, and then you've got all kinds of clumsy maneuvers for her to do in addition to shooting.

If we're going with guns and an older era, how about a flintlock pistol?

Aha, now we're getting to Atari level firearms, unique, yet very simple. Good thinking.

To be honest, it actually sort of bugs me since it doesn't really LOOK Tari-esque from what we've seen in the game.

On further thought, what about a ray gun, like the Atari XG-1? It also helps that it looks more like zeerust than anything else.
