Diamonds of Ether is an upcoming Umbrella fighting game that takes heavy inspiration from early Fighters of Lapis games. It is meant to help bring back interest in the Umbrella genre, and will feature a story that homages back to The Space Crisis and has a wide range of both well-known and obscure characters.
It's a smash clone. Boop.
Luigi is known for being the sidekick of Mario, but now he leads his own adventure! Luigi is the generic, balanced character of the game, attacking by throwing fireballs, kicking koopa shells, or using the Poltergust 5000. He also has a hammer to knock opponents away.
Having graduated from Beacon after the events of RWBY, Yang became a skilled huntress who now searches for her sister, who has strangely gone missing. Yang wields the Ember Celica, a pair of gauntlets that fire machine gun shots. She also has a gameplay mechanic where the more damage she takes, the stronger she gets. This ability has a limit, though.
Chrom is the descendant of the hero prince Marth, and he surely does him justice using his Falchion. Chrom attacks with strong sword strikes, making him a powerful melee character.
One of Pablo's amazing creations. Master Mama is the strongest member of the Spartan army in Halo, and she attacks with her shootyguns and a plasma-powered frying pan. She is one of the stronger characters in the game, who has good attacks both up close and from a distance.
Bacon Man is the leader of the infamous Breakfast Brigade, a team of breakfast-themed heroes who play Minecraft minigames and are really, really, bad at it. Bacon Man wields a Bacon Sword which he can use to attack, as well as smashing people's heads in with a plate. Also, he hates Sky.
Pancake Pal is Bacon Man's loyal sidekick, although he has a habit of getting himself into trouble. He can attack by using his syrup to stick opponents to the ground or even drown them, and he also has the power of flight and teleportation. Despite all of these abilities, he's kind of a wimp.
Junko was originally a key character in the MXPverse, but fuck that shit this is Diamonds of Ether now. Junko can attack by using her many Monokuma droids, as well as using weapons and contractions that are sure to induce despair onto her opponents.
A robot from the 1980s who was re-awakened during Fantendo Sports Resort. Oh wait, that's not her backstory! Turns out, this Cura is actually a clone Junko created, modeled after the original Cura. Oh well. She has some totally tubular attacks such as shooting laser disks and having an arm cannon. Y'know, cause all robots should have arm cannons.

Sans is a skeleton and one of the most difficult bosses in the original Undertale game, but you only fight him if you decide to kill everyone
Master of Light, The Seventh Toa, and other titles that probably are supposed to make sense, Takanuva was a former Matoran before he fulfilled his destiny of becoming the Toa of Light and put on a mask that gave him super powers. Something like that, right? Anyway, Takanuva uses his two staffs, as well as his powers of light to fight foes.
A member of the WWE and newly crowned king of the Memeverse, John Cena has godlike powers which were sadly nerfed in order for the game to be fair. He can grab, punch, and kick opponents to victory, as well as doing the WWE SUUUPER SLAAAM and knocking opponents out of the ring. He can also turn invisible. You can't see him, his time is now.
