Angry Joe sidesteps to the battlefield repeatedly saying "Oh my god!"

Special Attacks

Neutral B - Force Lightning

Angry Joe uses the power of the force in the form of lightning. From just tapping B, Joe shoots a lightning bolt. The longer it flies, the more it stuns. The lightning also stops projectiles and thrown items. You can charge it up to shoot a 2-handed bolt of lightning. This has twice the power of the lightning he can chuck. The 2-handed lightning bolt can make traps evaporate and absorb shields to replenish health. The bigger the shield is when it's absorbed, the more health he replenishes.

Side B - Curse Blaster

Angry Joe swears at the opponent. Like the lightning, a basic tap shoots a projectile only this projectile is a soundwave. He says any curse word upon this process, but it doesn't change the amount of damage taken by the opponent. If you charge it up, you can stun a close-up opponent and then end it all with an explosion that sends te opponent back. Obviously the knockback is higher when the damage is.

Up B - Red Lantern Joe

Joe turns into his Red Lantern form and flies upward for 5 seconds. Pressing B with the analog stick pointed at either side makes him shoot a laser from his power ring. Pointing the analog stick to either side alone makes him dash in that direction. The lasers can also manage to build up power the longer Joe goes without shooting them, similar to R.O.B.'s eye beams. Pressing A cancels it.

Down B - Dual Machine Guns

Angry Joe gets outs 2 machine guns from Kickassia. You are reduced to walking speed when you have the machine guns out. Holding A aims one of the machine guns. One of them can be pointed in the direction of your choice with the analog stick. Pressing B shoots with that machine gun. Holding B alone makes him shoot upwards. You can move around while you do this, making you go at running speed and doing a few spins that do minor damage and knockback. Pressing down+B again while standing normally puts the machine guns away.

Final Smash - Final Verdict

Angry Joe gets in a stance where he'll gives the nearest opponent a rating on a scale of 1-10. the rating depends on how much the opponent does to him. If the opponent's too easy, he gives the opponent a low rating. If the opponent's hard to beat but was just being cheap, he still gives a low rating. If the opponent at least puts up a fight that wasn't a spam-a-thon, he gives a good rating. The lower the verdict, the more damage and knockback the opponent suffers from.

Character Description

In his Angry Joe Adventures Series, Joe sets out after the Evil Corporate Overlords and their henchmen on behalf of all gamers sick of crappy games and terrible sequels. In the AJS world, Joe obtained his power from his jacket, but can now transform himself intro AngryJoe from his mild mannered public identity, “Joe,” who makes regular appearances on the weekly Angry Joe Show. His only weakness as “Angry Joe” that has been shown is becoming depowered and vulnerable after playing a crappy game for too long, one of the reasons he tends to stick to game previews, top reasons and announcements on new games. Despite the “Angry” Joe name, his character isn’t “overly” angry. Though not one to shy away from profanity, he often prefers to use geek culture cuss words such as “frack” and “frick.”
