Sukapon (スカポン, Sukapon) is the main character of Joy Mech Fight.
Sukapon was made by Dr. Little Emon and Dr. Ivan Walnuts. When Dr. Walnuts declared his intent to rule the world, Dr. Emon used Sukapon to defeat Dr. Walnuts's robots and stop his evil scheme. After an epic battle on the moon and a change of heart by Dr. Walnuts (apparently due to a split-personality), Sukapon returned to a career in owarai.
Sukapon is a tricky character, with a moveset slightly unconventional and many ways to keep his opponent guessing. Movement is vital in a game without corners even though everyone's backspeed is the lowest possible. Everyone has at least one special move to stop runaway tactics; Sukapon has two: Sukapon Roll and Konaniran, both of which have extra possible inputs for more options at his disposal. Sukapon Roll sends him charging towards the opponent and he can either spring himself forward, stop his momentum, or make an sharp arc for extra, but randomized, damage. It can be done in the air too, changing arcs based on his vertical momentum. Konaniran sends his head out half-screen and as it comes back Sukapon can move towards it instead. He also has an overhead toss named after himself as well as Tondeker, a projectile with adjustable speed via lateral inputs. His damage output is average at best, though he's regarded as lacking overall due to his slow movement, floaty jump, and said movement specials being rather bad as attacks. His low gravity leaves him open against many characters after the roll connects, and he takes a long time to toss his head during Konaniran.
His stage 4 clone, Sukapokon, has more of an aggressive playstyle and considered among the best in the game. Each of the stage 4 enemies get extra damage and speed as well as more knockdown attacks. Sukapokon Roll knocking down makes it far more useful despite its lower blockstun. Lastly, Konaniran is replaced with Nonsense, a rapid-punch attack borrowed from another character who bears some similarities to Sukapon.
Sukapon appears as a sticker in Brawl.
As an Assist Trophy
Sukapon appears as an Assist Trophy in Ultimate. He moves around the stage while spinning around with his arms raised and can jump, flailing his hands whenever airborne. He attacks by using his special move, Tondeker, which shoots a copy of his head at opponents. He uses a second special move, Sukapon Toss, where he uses a close grab then tosses opponents backward. He also uses a third special move, Sukapon Roll, where he rolls his whole body forward fast, then continues to spin when rebounding off opponents. Sukapon can also block attacks just like in Joy Mech Fight, but is still vulnerable to grabbing. Sukapon has small black dots for eyes but will have a circle surrounding the dot when attacked or in his Tondeker head projectile, giving off a surprised expression. He claps his hands and moves his feet side to side when finished, a reference to his victory animation in Joy Mech Fight. Like many Assist Trophies in Ultimate, he can be defeated. Training Mode describes his Assist Trophy: Spins around and tackles opponents, occasionally chucking his own head.
Sukapon is also a Legend-class spirit, available in the Spirit Board or in the shops. His spirit fight is a stamina battle against Mii Gunner (meant to represent Dr. Little Emon), whose attack power periodically increases, on Coliseum, with Sukapon constantly appearing as a hostile Assist Trophy.
