I doubt the character tables could hold Bebop and Rocksteady at the same time. However, in speaking in the hypothetical, you'd be better off with B being melee attack, double-tap being dash attack, A being jump and A+B being "special," the gun. The gun would need some type of limit, could stick with old standards of it costing a drop in your health, or simply an ammo meter with ammo powerups being scarce.

King of Colosseum II (Sony PlayStation 2):
A hack that replaces the fake stuff and brings the textures of the real ring and entrance attires, face and head textures, theme songs, the crowd yelling out their names, the ring announcers and commentators calling out their names from King of Colosseum Red and Green to this game for these edit wrestler and MMA samples from the Template Menu:

Giant Baba
Jumbo Tsuruta
Kenzo Suzuki
Kazuyuki Fujita

Original Game: Frogger (pick a platform)
New title: The Adventures of YOLO: Frogger Edition
Changes made: One death and you're back to the title screen.

Why? Mostly for the pun.

yolo is some hipster term for "you only live once" so his pitch is a series of games with one life, no continue. To further it, I would suggest death as triggering a hard game reset or if possible, power off.

Done.

For the gameboy color game "Frogger (U) [C][!]"
You get one life. Also there is a slight graphic change before you start a level.

An alternative would be to stay at the game over screen. No way to pass it without doing a hard reset.

Kind of annoying, though.
Probably a number of people use a game controller to play emulators and who puts the reset button on there? :D

Kind of the point in the novelty, I'd assume. To make the consequences as dire as possible from one death.

I guess megaman has never had a good melee weapon. With some graphical and palette changes, that could be the premise of a whole new game ala whomp 'em.

Not in the NES games he didn't. In Megaman 7 though you had Slash Man's  Slash Claw and Sword Man's Flame Sword in Megaman 8. Top Spin is the only thing that comes close. Though I would consider weapons like Top Spin and Slash Claw CQC weapons. Kinda like using a dagger. If it was to be more unique from Zero, Top Spin technically isn't a sword. Though one would have to make it so that you could use it on the ground as well as a jump spin. The normal attack would just be a spin sort of like a battle skill.

I did test with other kind of emulator for snes9x.  Only I see is free practice and no music.  Just sound.  So I just start thinking if someone can use car hack from BS F-Zero Grand Prix 2 to F-Zero.  But that will be hard for asm and stuff.  So I hope someone who can do it.

I beg to differ. Charge Kick is the closest thing to Slash Claw and Flame Sword. If I were going to choose an NES Megaman game to use as a base for a Melee game it would be Megaman 5.

I think i mentioned this before in the chat room but how about like a "What If" for Dragon Warrior for when you make the decision at the end where instead of fighting the Dragonlord that you make the decision to join him and you get that text where you fall asleep in a deep slumber... but then... years pass and the world is in shambles and something comes to challenge the Dragonlord after he ravages the world and awakens some evil who challenges him. Maybe a quest path where you can redeem yourself after seeing what you have done by neglecting your destiny from the original or joining the Dragonlord to kill the ultimate evil or even overthrow all to become an evil ruler! So much could be done with this.

Or just a new Dragon Warrior hack entirely that incorporates this "What if" idea. The Dragonlord would replace and functions as the King in the beginning, for example. It fits because in the original, he mentions reviving you if you die if you agreed to join him. Joining him decreases all your gold and experience to zero (but not HP because it's a sleep), thematically fitting for a new hack in its entirety. I'd like random encounters in towns to kill humans. :D

Hmm now that I think of it, Quick Man's boomerang does stay rather close by and if graphics are modified the right way, it could look like a weapon that swipes across. Look at the pattern of it:

I do not know though if it could be modified as a sword, whip, or other type weapon.

Do it with a gargoyles quest type maps and pallettes that'd be pretty sweet
