Final Smash Mega Charizard X


Charizard is a playable veteran character in Super Smash Bros. Calamity. Charizard is the final evolution for Charmander who evolves after Charmeleon and the mascot for Pokémon Red and its remake, Pokémon FireRed.

Changes

Notice New on-screen appearance, Charizard is released from a Pokéball, flying from above and lands stomping the ground.

Notice Charizard has a new taunt, which its standard taunt, where it flaps its wings twice to hover before striking a pose and roaring.

Notice New victory pose, which replaces its "roaring" victory pose; Charizard lazily yawns and takes a nap on the floor in a burly manner; reminiscent of Ash's Charizard in the Pokémon anime, who tended to cease fighting and take naps on serious battles, disobeying all orders (which can also happen in the actual Pokémon games).

Buff New jab, a wing strike which, while only hitting once, it can be used for combo starters and an aerial follow-up due to its low base knockback.

Buff New forward tilt, a chomp forward, which is much more stronger in terms of damage.

Notice Up tilt now has less knockback, which makes it weaker in terms of knockback, but easier to juggle with.

Notice Down tilt is now its old forward tilt from Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS / Wii U.

Nerf New back aerial, a wing attack similar to its up tilt, but it deals less knockback and damage.

Buff Up aerial is now its Super Smash Bros. Brawl up aerial, which is stronger.

Buff Forward throw is now Heat Wave, where Charizard releases a strong burst of flames that can kill at 115%.

Notice Up special is now Fire Spin, which is similar to Fly animation-wise, but is different in aesthetic-wise, damage-wise, knockback-wise and distance-wise; Charizard surrounds itself in flames during the rise, and the move deals more damage and knockback but covers less distance.

Victory theme Click here to listen!
Charizard's victory theme is a flourish remix of the gym leader victory theme from Pokémon Red and Pokémon Blue. This victory theme is shared with Pikachu, Jigglypuff, Pichu, Mewtwo, Lucario, Greninja, Squirtle, Ivysaur and Meloetta.
Victory pose #1 Charizard stomps forward before rearing its head back to roar upward while expelling flames from its mouth, and then strikes a pose.
Victory pose #2 Charizard uses Flare Blitz to descend from the sky and crash into the ground before striking a pose.
Victory pose #3 Charizard lazily yawns and takes a nap on the floor in a burly manner.
"Mega Charizard X" victory pose Mega Charizard X flies around while being surrounded in blue flames before eventually stopping and doing a Flare Blitz-like charge to the ground before striking a pose, reverting back to normal Charizard. This victory pose only happens if Charizard wins during his Mega Charizard X transformation.

Alternates

Credit goes to Yendorami (tbc) for some of the alternates.

Charizard has an alternate costumes based on its armored appearance seen in the beginning of Lucario and the Mystery of Mew, along with three more alternates for it.
