Tangerine Avengers is a new project that will act as a semi-reboot of Fighters of Lapis. While the Fighters of Lapis series will still go on, this Baby Waffle will ask the question of "what if Fighters of Lapis never existed?" and "What if Fighters of Lapis was created in 2014?"
Gameplay in the game is a dramatic departure from many fighting games. Instead of winning by depleting an opponent's life bar, players of Tangerine Avengers seek to knock opponents off the stage. Characters have a damage total, represented by a percentage value, which rises as they take damage and can exceed 100%. As a character's percentage rises, the character can be knocked progressively farther by an opponent's attacks. To KO an opponent, the player must send that character flying off the edge of the stage, which is not an enclosed arena but rather an area with open boundaries, usually a set of suspended platforms. When a character is knocked off the stage, the character may use jumping moves to attempt to return; as some characters' jumps are longer-ranged, they may have an easier time "recovering" than others. Additionally, some characters are heavier than others, making it harder for an opponent to knock them off the edge but likewise harder to recover.
Tangerine Avengers' play controls are greatly simplified in comparison to other fighting games. While traditional fighting games such as Street Fighter or Soul Calibur require the player to memorize button-input combinations (sometimes lengthy and complicated, and often specific to a character), Tangerine Avengers uses the same one-attack-button, one-control-stick-direction combinations to access all moves for all characters. Characters are not limited to constantly facing their opponent, but may run around freely. Tangerine Avengers also implements blocking and dodging mechanics, which can be used both on the ground and in the air. Grabbing and throwing other characters are also possible, allowing for a large variety of ways to attack.
Brawl - The normal gameplay option. The bulk of the game is going to be played here, probably. You select characters and a stage. Items and stage hazards can be adjusted
Classic- Pits you off on random fighters much like Adventure, but with no minigames. You fight the Lich at the end.
Adventure - A mode that has you pick a character to go through many different stages up against other characters, who each have random effects and dialog towards certain characters. You fight the Lich at the end.
All-Star - Go against every fighter in chronological order.
Story: The Sand Emissary
The story of Tangerine Avengers is called "The Sand Emissary". It features the Lich as the main villain as he sucks the entire world into a bag!
The story begins with Mario and Rosalina facing off Finn and Jake in a soccer match. The player will play through a match that features a soccerball, and while the characters can't be KO'd, they can still damage each other. The soccerball must go into the other character's net. First team to get 5 points wins.
After the soccer match, a snail finds it's way into a bag, unseen to everyone in the stadium. The Lich emerges from the bag, and begins to suck everything into the bag.
Mario, Rosalina, and Finn and Jake run from the Lich as he begins to suck everything into the bag. I wonder where all that land is going... oh well, let's not worry about that right now!
Mario, Rosalina and Finn and Jake warn Princess Bubblegum about the Lich. Just then, the Bear appears to attack Princess Bubblegum! Out of nowhere, Raquna Sheldon appears and guards Princess Bubblegum. They fight off the Bear, and Princess Bubblegum generates a forcefield to protect the candy kingdom from the Lich's bag of holding. She explains that Raquna is some hired help, as the Lich returning has brought back the dead and that Finn and Jake won't be enough to defend the Candy Kingdom.
Raquana and Finn & Jake face off in the courtyards for some practice before taking out some the Lich's forces.
Meanwhile Pit chases after the Lich in the sky above the Amber Field. He manages to harm the Lich to get him on the ground and heads to go find him in the Amber Field. Just then he comes across Momohime who attacks them. After realizing she was mistaken, the two stop fighting and chase after the Lich.
The two then come across Cravalanche and battle him. Just then, they spy the Lich sucking up a mountain.
Meanwhile at the Mystery Shack, the Lich begins to suck up the Mystery Shack as well as Lil Gideon's house. Dipper and Mabel end up inside of the Lich's bag and face off Gideon-bot.
Madotsuki is out on the porch when the Lich comes near. She attempts to attack with him with the effects, but she gets sucked up into the bag.
Pit and Momohime head close to the mountain where they come across Mikasa Ackerman attempting to scale the mountain to get close to the Lich. The three of them are sucked into the bag.
Mario is a plumber who often has to rescue Princess Peach from the clutches of Bowser. The gaming world's perhaps most iconic character, behind Pacman. He uses fireballs, dice (from Mario Party), and a kart to attack.
A cosmic Princess who Mario met back in Mario Galaxy. She has become an unexpectedly popular character since. She uses starbits to attack, a spin jump, and her Lumas, although not in the way seen in Super Smash Bros. 4.
Finn & Jake
Finn and Jake are a duo that work together to stop threats to the land of Ooo. Finn works primarily with a sword, while Jake works mainly with his hands. Jake mostly sits in Finn's backpack unless switched out, in which case Finn will appear in Jake's "backpack".
Dipper & Mabel
Known as the mystery twins, Dipper and Mabel work together to solve mysteries in the town of Gravity Falls. Dipper can use the book as a melee weapon as well as a way to summon creatures, while Mabel is more of a ranged character, using a grappling hook and bedazzler. You can switch between each the two in the match, and the other one will defend the other character but will not directly attack other characters.

The princess of Narukami who has been possessed by a demon. She uses a katana to attack and she is rather fluid character. She can also use flame and shadow based attacks.
Mordecai & Rigby
Another tag-team duo, this time with a blue jay and raccoon. Mordecai is a stronger character but he moves slightly slower, and Rigby is a fast character with some weak attacks. Unlike the other two tag-teams, these two work together as opposed to being transforming characters. They can preform coffee and dodge-ball based attacks as well as use the cart to attack.
Panty & Stocking
Two angels that were cast out of heaven. They switch out, with one character sitting on the couch watching the fight. Stocking uses katanas to fight and this is the basis of her moveset; Panty uses guns and is more of an ranged character.

Samus Aran is an ex-Galactic Federation soldier who turned into an intergalactic bounty hunter, usually fitted with a powered armor suit with weapons that include directed energy weapons and missiles. In her Power Suit she is a rather bulky but powerful fighter, with chargeable shots and an ice beam that can freeze enemies.
While in this suit, Samus takes much more damage but is more agile. She is capable of grabbing and hanging from ledges and performing Wall Jumps due to her already-present superhuman acrobatic skills from her Chozo DNA and training. Samus resorts to crawling on her hands and knees to clear small paths, in the absence of the Morph Ball. She also uses a whip gun that can act as a grappling beam and paralyzer.
Sami is a Commanding Officer from one of the four countries that comprises the Allied Nations, Orange Star. She uses a machine gun, grenades, and a bazooka to attack.

Stitch aka Experiment 626 is a creature created by Jumba to be destructive. He has a limited ability to change his physical appearance, as he can retract a second set of arms, his claws, his antennae and the three spikes on his back into his body.

Cragalanche the Mighty is a warrior in the Forces of Nature. Cragalanche's battle style remains quite predictable throughout the battle but will become much faster as the battle goes on.

Black Hole is an aggressive force that seeks to dominate the World. They have a futuristic slant to them. The enemy will fire away at characters although can be taken down in just a few hits.
