Drawing sprites is a gigantic pain, you have to draw their sprites frame-by-frame. Look at the time span it took to make this, and this isn't close to complete, as I lack quite a bit of animations.
Her fighter right now has most of the basic moves down sans grabbing, ledge attacks, and getting up iirc (jab needs work too), and only one special moves works as intended (neutral B). I did play with her in 6 player smash but I have no idea how balanced she is. She's a fast, hard hitter with some disjoint but is very light.
Oh and she's literally the only Protector I've even done. Every other Protector, I've drawn only one sprite for Redshift and just an idle for Ray Trace, and that's before Dark Light is even closed to being finished.
