Voiced by: Chris Cox

Classification: Gadget character (with explosives)

Biography: Possibly the world's greatest marksman, Floyd Lawton lives his life as an assassin named Deadshot. Rarely, if ever, missing a shot, Deadshot is able to take jobs that would be suicide missions for others.

Intro: Deadshot is seen in a dark room, looking through the scope of a sniper rifle pointed out of a window; he pulls away and mutters "Can't line up the shot from here..." and gets up, leaving the frame; he is then shown in the stage, loading his wrist-mounted firearms and activating his eye-mounted laser sight

Post-Round Taunt: Deadshot reloads his wrist-mounted guns and says "An easy job." or "I never miss."

Outro: Deashot adjusts his eye-mounted sight, takes aim with his right arm-mounted gun, and fires one shot at the off-screen opponent; he then turns around and raises his firing arm by his face, saying "Target's down. Time to collect my paycheck."

Special Moves:

* Sniper Assassin - Shoots forward a sniper round from one of his right wrist-mounted gun, reaching across the entire screen with high knockback
** Meter Burn - After shooting the opponent once with the wrist-mounted sniper, Deadshot will quickly kneel down on one knee and shoot them again while they fly through the air

* Sniper Assassin (Angled) - Shoots a sniper shot from his right wrist-mounted firarm upward at a 45 degree angle, working as an anti-air move

* Three Round Burst - Holds his left wrist-mounted gun forward and shoots a three-round burst, reaching about mid-screen
** Meter Burn - After hitting the opponent with this succession of bullets, Deadshot quickly uses his right wrist-mounted gun to snipe them, shooting them across the screen

* Evasive Manuevers - Leaps backward, spraying a three-round burst towards the ground in front of him at short range, to help him avoid close-range combat (similar to one of Green Arrow's moves)
** Meter Burn - Instead of shooting, Deadshot will throw a grenade to blow up the opponent

* Target Locked - Creates a red laser from his eye-mounted laser sight that reaches across the screen; if the opponent is caught in it in the brief second it's there, Deadshot will be locked onto them and shoot them with his sniper attachment even if they've moved from the original position

* Upward Shot - Falls onto his back and holds his left arm up, shooting three rounds directly above him to take out an overhead opponent

* Trick Shot - Shoots down at the ground with his left gun, making the bullet bounce upward to hit the opponent at a low angle

Launcher: Shoots forward with the sniper attachment on his right wrist

Forward - Punches the opponent in the stomach with his right hand, then immediatelt lets off a sniper shot from the same hand into the opponent's stomach, sending them into the air, letting Deadshot shoot them with a three-round burst
Back - Turns the opponent around, then punches them in the stomach with his right hand, then immediatelt lets off a sniper shot from the same hand into the opponent's stomach, sending them into the air, letting Deadshot shoot them with a three-round burst

Character Trait:
Curare Soaked Bullets - Deadshot's bullets all become soaked in curare poison for a short time, making each shot landed deal extra damage over time

Super Move:
Explosive Bullets  - Deadshot loads new clips into his wrist-mounted guns, and shoots three round about halfway across the screen; if they hit the opponent, they will stumble back, and Deadshot presses down a button on a handheld detonator, exploding the three bullets lodged inside the opponent, lifting them into the air slightly; Deadshot then shoots a sniper round at the opponent, and detonates it, sending them further up; Deadshot does this two more times before completely unloading many bullets with his automatic attachment and exploding detonating each bullet

Ending: Deadshot had just completed his biggest contract to date. After serving the Regime for a brief time as a hired gun, and then being placed in Stryker's Island penitentiary for criticisms of the High Counsilor, Deadshot escaped, and was found by certain parties interested in his services. Tasked with killing Superman, Deadshot happily completed his mission, earning not only revenge, but a new reputation as the deadliest assassin in the world.

Very nice. I can imagine him having a few aerial shots, but that might fit better for Capcom style gameplay.
LookItsJarvis Featured By Owner Sep 14, 2013
Yeah, Netherrealm's stuff is less aerial focused, especially when it comes to characters who can't fly.
