Standard B - An idiot with a bow

Karl attacks with a bow and arrow. It's similar to Sniper's Bow except this will always fire off in some random direction. It's easy to spam though so if you keep firing, you'll eventually hit something

Side B - Needle throw

Karl throws a needle. This projectile is more straight forward then the bow attack however this one is weaker. There's also a 1 in 5 chance the needle will somehow hit the cameraman causing him to zoom in on Karl for 5 seconds. After this happens, it takes another 10 seconds for it to possible happen again.

Up B - Israeli dance party

An Israeli dance party will appear which will throw Karl upwards. They will stay there for 5 seconds before disappearing. Enemies can also be thrown up by them but it will also cause them damage.

Down B - Pilko Pump Pants

Karl equips the Pilko pump pants. While equipping this, whenever Karl picks up an item, he can store it in his pants. The more items he adds, the heavier he'll start to get causing him to slow down but also causing his A attacks to be stronger. Press down B again to unequip the pants causing all of it's contents to fall out. You can still use the other B moves while wearing this.

Final Smash - Bullshit man

Karl becomes the Bullshit man, as he yells out "Bullshit!" Karl will stay as Bullshit man for 20 seconds. In this mode, Karl will not tolerate your fantasy shite so all moves that are impossible to do in real life will be cancelled: for example, normal punches will be fine to use but something like Konata's Mikuru Beam or Pinkie's Pinkie Sense will be cancelled


Down Taunt- You smell. You shit?

Side Taunt- I could eat a knob at night

Up Taunt- It's times like this that I think, you know, I used to have a proper job. What am I doing?
