Ib- Corelli La Folia / Ib- spreludenew

Ib is the main protagonist of the 2012 indie horror game IB. She appears as a playable character in Smash Bros Lawl, and was the nineteenth character to be added, with her moveset being uploaded to Youtube on April 29, 2012.

Special Moves

Standard B- Painting Place

Painting Place is Ib's primary mechanic, allowing her to place paintings on the stage to screw with other opponents. Ib can place 3 portraits at once anywhere on the stage. When they are grey, they are inactive, meaning they cannot absorb anything and are immune to anti-trap moves. (This is the revised version of Ib's B move, mostly from the words of Chincherrinas): Paintings naturally absorb projectiles (but when that pic absorbs, 1 sec cool-down before absorbing again. Pressing A on a pic will enable player absorption, but only if that pic is not on any sort of cool-down. The absorption of a player will cause that player to be ejected from one of the other two paintings, 3 sec. before pic can absorb anything.The absorption of a player will also remove effect from that pic, wait 1 sec. before the other 2 pics can be selected to absorb players, 3 sec. for previous pic. When a painting is placed, Ib can use her Side B, Up B or Down B to do different things with them.

Move Origin

While paintings are seen all throughout the game, one of the only times Ib actually uses a painting is when she uses an ant painting to cross a chasm in the floor of a room.

Side B- Lady in Red

When pressing Side B, Ib will be in an immobilized state, where pressing A, B or R (in correspondance to her paintings) will unleashed a Lady in Red to emerge and ram into opponents. Once a Lady in Red attacks, the paining is taken down.

Move Origin

The Lady in Red (along with other colors seen throughout the game) paintings are common enemies in Ib. They appear to be a painting of a woman in a dress (similar to the Mona Lisa). Occasionally, they will pull out of the frame, and chase Ib.

Up B- Fisherman

Pressing Up B spawns the Fisherman painting that reels Ib inside.  The paining dissapears, as Ib has a choice of any of the 3 paintings on the field. Pressing A, B or R will teleport to any of these painings. If no button is pressed, she is transported to a random painting.

Move Origin

During the part of the game, where Garry and Ib (and Mary) get separated, Garry has to add an umbrella to the fishing hook of a painting, which will then be caught by a fisherman in another painting in the room that Ib is in.

Down B- Vandalism

Just like Lady in Red, Ib becomes immobilized to select a painting (with A, B or R) to make it explode, dealing damage and removing the painting.

Move Origin

While this move is original to Lawl, and exploding paintings weren't in Ib, the explosion sprite is taken from a few scenes in Ib.

Final Smash- Treasure Hunt

Ib dissapears, summoning the empty doll painting. The bells ring, the screen shakes, as each ring makes the Doll come closer to to the canvas.  After every ding, dolls appear around the stage. Killing the right one will stop the FS, but the wrong doll will deal damage and remove every doll until the next ding.  The dolls change places every time, every one changes.  Once the Doll gets out of the painting, all enemies on the field are KOed, and Ib reappears.

Move Origin

During the separation part of the game, Garry has to find colored balls, in order to make a bridge in Ib's room, in order for Ib to get a key. One of the balls is stolen by a doll, which then runs into a room with other dools like it, and a blank canvas. When he picks up the ball and tries to leave, the door is locked. Garry then has to find the key in one of the dolls before the giant doll comes out of the canvas, and if he fails, it instantly kills Garry. The doll that stole the ball calls it a "treasure hunt", which is where the name of the final smash comes from.

Character Description

Ib is the primary protagonist and main playable character of the RPG maker game of the same name, Ib. The game is a horror-adventure RPG maker game, much like Yume Nikki or Ao Oni. One day, Ib and her parents went to an art museum showcasing the works of a mysterious artist named Guertena. When she went off on her own to explore the exhibit, she encounters a mysterious painting, which soon transports her into a twisted world inhabited by the portraits and sculptures of Guertena. From there, she tries to escape back to reality, with the helps of two other museum-goers; Garry and Mary. Ib is a silent protagonist, much like Madotsuki and Yomika, and her vocabulary isn't entirely expansive, since she doesn't know most of the words she reads throughout her adventure.

Codec Conversations

Snake Codec

Snake: Aaah there’s another Madotsuki walking around here! Why does this one has creepy dreams?

Otacon: …Actually… she doesn’t.

Snake: Doesn’t feel right fighting someone in a fashionable dress tho.

Otacon: …Actually… she kicks ass. At a young age she got split from her parents and got in a world where everything is weird. She’s been in places and seen things people like you and me can’t even begin to imagine.

Snake: Oohh shit…

Role In The Subspace Emissary

Ib was finally able to escape the nightmarish painting world held within Guertana's Gallery, yet she returns to a rather...odd scene. The gallery had been vandalized and taken over by Toon Bison and Shadaloo. Pictures of Bison, the Shadaloo insignia, and the word YES we're sprawled all along the walls as all the art patrons were taken hostage. Ib fights off some of the Shadaloo guards, while finally confronting Bison. Luckily, Toon Guile crashes in via his plane, and is ready to attack Bison. Bison attempts to trophify Guile, but Ib steps in and saves him with her paintings. Bison then calls in Toon Sagat, who fights Guile and Ib while he and Toon Balrog escape. After Sagat retreats, Guile advises Ib to go home to her parents. However, Ib remembers that Bison took hostages, quite possibly including her parents. So, she runs off with Guile to find Shadaloo and save her parents.


  • Ib is the first RPG Maker character to not be in the Yume Nikki Universe.
  • Ib's playstyle is the most unique out of all the Lawl fighters, with her strategy primarily relying on her paintings.
  • Ib was heavily criticized by some Lawl fans because of her obscurity, how she was never suggested/ voted for, and how (like Olimar in Brawl), she would be "helpless" without her paintings. Ironically enough, she's been the highest ranked character in the tier list (on the Facebook page) for quite a while, as she now remains #2 on the list (formerly behind Nicolas Cage, now behind Haruhi).
  • Starting with Mary's moveset, her appearance has been upgraded from sprites to her in-game artwork.
