Guy Gardner

Voiced By: James Arnold Taylor

Classification: Power Character

Biography: The second modern Green Lantern from Earth, Guy Gardner is overflowing with willpower and won't let anyone forget it. Though brash and confrontational, Guy is still a hero at heart.

Intro: Charges his ring using his lantern, then holds the lantern up in the air, smirking and saying "Alright, now I'm ready to go!"

Post-Round Taunt: Holds his arms out to the sides and takes a step back, saying either "That's one for Gardner!" or "Haha! Loser!"

Outro: Looks at the opponent and chuckles, then walks over to them and forms a green cage around them, complete with a sign that says "I suck, Guy rules." He then stands there and appreciates his work.

Special Moves:

* Sawblade - Tosses a sawblade forward
** Meter Burn - Throws a second sawblade, which gets caught in the opponent and speeds up, cutting them and leaving them unable to move temporarily

* Hit 'Em While They're Down - Strikes downward with a construct shaped like a baseball bat with nails sticking out of it; operates like Joker's crowbar move
** Meter Burn - After hitting the downed opponent, they bounce into the air, and Guy hits them across the screen with the bat

* Blitz - Creates constructs on his body resembling a football helmet and football pads, and rushes forward, knocking down the enemy
** Meter Burn - Guy will tackle the opponent, then punch them in the face twice and blast them with a ring laser

* Chainsaw Spin - Creates a chainsaw construct and swings it around in a circle
** Meter Burn - After hitting the opponent with the chainsaw, instead of sending them flying, Guy pushes it further into their chest, hurting them and forcing them to the ground

* Brawler Uppercut - Creates brass knuckles constructs on his hands and does a Shoryuken-esque uppercut
** Meter Burn - After hitting the opponent into the air, Guy hits them back down and then performs an elbow drop to hit them on the ground

Launcher: Creates a construct resembling a cannon, firing a cannonball construct into the opponent and sending them flying

Forward - Punches the opponent in the stomach twice, and then hits them away with a sledgehammer construct
Back - Punches the opponent in the stomach twice, then flies behind them and hits them away with a sledgehammer

Character Trait:
Spiked Fists - Creates a sharp, jagged construct consisting of multiple spikes around his fists, allowing for any melee attacks using his hands to do extra damage

Super Move:
Petal to the Metal - Guy holds his fist up in the air (the one with the ring) and creates a growing pillar underneath the opponent, slightly damaging them and lifting them up all the way to space; when it stops, Guy comes out of nowhere driving a sportscar construct, slamming into the opponent and driving all the way back to the Earth with the opponent on the car's hood, then slamming the opponent into the ground when they land

Ending: When Superman's Regime began to take power, Guy Gardner was approached by his fellow Green Lantern Hal Jordan, offering a position in the Regime. Guy was strongly against the idea, and when he attempted to leave he was captured and locked in Stryker's Island without his ring. Years passed, but Guy's willpower still burned bright. Through sheer force of will, he summoned his ring to him and escaped, intent on raising Hell and bringing down the Regime!

Have you ever thought of doing one for Sub-Zero?

Nice. Hey, if Jonah Hex was in the game, what kind of Gadget character would he be, with or without explosives?... No wait, explosives.

Makes sense that Guy would be more close quarters centered. Quotes definitely feel very Guy, be surprised there's none against Lobo since they've both fought each other and teamed up a few times.

I didn't know about Guy and Lobo. I might put some stuff in for them later if I don't forget/get too lazy.
