Ask @ShadBad88:

If you could add characters from other lawls as rivals from the ones in your roster, which would be the rivalries? (Example: Frisk vs Sans & Papyrus)

nintendogamemaster
Reason why there was a drought in answers was to pick the perfect rivals for this;
-Strong Bad vs Heavy Weapons Guy (ARL): Both were poker buddies in Poker Night at the Inventory, with Strong Bad being called "Tiny Heavy". Perhaps the two battle as the Heavy wishes to spar with the tiny wrestleman.
-John Egbert vs Nicolas Cage (Lawl): John's favorite actor, specifically in Con Air with his fake southern accent. Lawl Cage embraces his craziness with shouting and bear suits- something that'd throw John off guard. Jade Harley (Nova) is also an obvious pick.
-Edd vs Toon Reitanna (LLC): Both are exaggerated animated personas of YouTube artists.
-Markiplier vs Game Grumps (X): The two channels are already friendly with each other yes, but a battle to decide who is superior can be had.
-Mama Umbridge vs Leonidas (Lawl): While he's not a rowdy kid, he's one of the manliest Lawl characters, and the Spartans were very brutal and orderly. Umbridge would definitely take the challenge of showing the power of a WOMAN.
-Stephen Quire vs Angry German Kid (X): Two classic viral anger-induced videos clashing- quite the popular rivalry as well.
-Watts & Rosalene vs Madotsuki (Lawl): Watts and Rosalene specialize in traversing through the memories of people. Madotsuki's past is a mystery, but it is theorized to have been traumatic when judging her bizarre dreams. Mado would definitely be hyper defensive against those with the power to traverse through memories.
-Homestar vs Toon Sonic (ARL) Two of the fastest characters, a friendly rivalry where the two would try to race around each other.
-Karkat Vantas vs Peridot (LOTD/X): Both are angry screaming aliens who are fan favorites- at one point both of them have made a shipping chart of some kind. Plus, these personalities clashing would be amusing. Against Terezi (LLC) also works.
-Tom vs asdfguy (Nova): The voice of Tomska vs his creation. Plus two random dudes.
-Matt vs Toon Guybrush (Nova) Skap mentioned it in his ask, Matt and Guybrush both sound somewhat similar, two bumbling gingers with bad ideas.
-Frisk vs Flowey (Liquid Crystal): Frisk already thwarted Flowey's devious plans in different universes and resets, this time there's one more battle they must have.
-Dan Backslide vs Robbie Rotten (X): A hammy villain meets a hammy villain. Robbie is lazy while Dan is proactive (screaming in public that he'll steal a car), the two can definitely clash between villainous ideals.
-Viola vs Aya Drevis (Lawl): Viola only lives with her father while Aya's father was... well, Mad. Both had to traverse a familiar mansion while avoiding death at every turn. And both aren't entirely innocent...
-Psycho Dad vs Hank Hill (Lawl): Both are stern dads who like yard work... but Psycho Dad is a reflection to Hank on what would happen if his anger consumed him.

From the franchises already represented in your Lawl, which other characters would be interesting to see as movesets? At least one per franchise or a similar character if there isn't.

Aitor Molina
Okay, this is gonna be a hefty list. Like Skap's answer, I wouldn't treat most of these as actual future characters, but in some cases... keep your eyes peeled.
-Homestar Runner: In terms of interesting, Coach Z and his creepy/weird sports tendencies would make a funny/amusing moveset.
-Homestuck: Like Skap said, Rose and Dave have as much potential as John and Jade, so they should definitely get GOOD movesets.
-Eddsworld: Obviously Tord. But since I'm gonna be doing him, the only Eddsworld character that comes to mind that MIGHT work would be Zanta Claws- basing him off the Christmas Specials.
-Markiplier: Obviously another Lets Player he associates with. While Bob and/or Wade could work, JackSepticEye has the more potential out of the two.
-A Very Potter Musical: AVP Voldemort, for also being played by the same actor as Umbridge (Joe Walker) has magic and his Death Eaters. Harry Freakin Potter also has magic, and his ego and guitar.
-GFOE: Really nobody else from GFOR- the closest idea I can think of is Angry Grandpa, but unlike Psycho Dad he doesn't really bring much new to the table tbh.
-To the Moon: Perhaps the unnamed protagonist of "A Bird's Story", a short game in the same universe that acts as a prequel to the upcoming TtM sequel.
-Undertale: Really any other Undertale main character could work, but special brownie points go to Mettaton, for his two forms and his pleas to be a star.
-Dover Boys: I'd have to go to a Warner Bros source for this one... so I guess Buggs Bunny or Daffy Duck for their historical value.
-The Witch's House: For this game specifically, Ellen, although once Viola's moveset comes out it will be apparent why she can't work. So I'd have to go with Aki from Misao, a game in the same universe as Mad Father. So many deaths for moves.
-The Psycho Series: Jesse "Psycho Kid/McJuggernuggets", the main character and anti-hero of the series. Could have enough I guess to differentiate from Stephen/his father, but I wouldn't count it too much.

What games would you list from the top of your head your favorite lisenced video games?

Snoota
Simpson’s Hit and Run is so much fun and has perfect Simpsons fanservice.
Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets/Prisoner of Azkaban on PS2 are my other all time favorites: you felt like you were actually exploring Hogwarts and finding secrets, and while COS has the charm and nostalgia, POA has the mechanic of switching between the trio. All around classic games for me

Any reason why the Lawl Beatdown thumbnails have changed?

Adam Powell
Apparently the old thumbnails weren't widescreen and had borders around them, which was pointed out to me by Renegade Jade. While making them widescreen, I touched em up a bit using new art. These are the new arts I'm gonna use for the characters splash screens (if you notice, Dan's newthumbmail has the same as his splash screen).
And of course the day after Austin A emulated them x_x

In your opinion, are N and Fawful moveset-worthy? Due to being non-reinterpreted Nintendo characters.

Aitor Molina
I’ll assume this is in terms of Smash, sindenin terms of Lawl these two would feel too “Nintendo”, even with Fawful’s antics. For Smash movesets, Fawful could be a fantastic representative for the Mario and Luigi Games, being an ensemble darkhorse filled with personality and various unique tools. N could be a Pokemon Trainer-esque Character, although the legendary dragons he has would be Ridley-Tier large

Who is your favourite video game character ever?

Billy Slaven
I answered a similar question to this a while ago, but I feel it’s fair to elaborate on my picks:
-N (Pokémon): probably one of the most complex Pokémon characters, his ideologies and struggles due to being manipulated by Ghetsis, and his entire character arc is partly why I love Gen V. Nintendo plz bring my boy home.
-Fawful (Mario and Luigi); Hands Down one of the most enjoyable antagonists in the Mario games- his bizarre speech and actual ability to get things done make him a fav
-Hector (Fire Emblem): In a series where many of the main protagonist need to stand out, Hector stands out for his amazing performance as a unit, his interactions with broship with Eliwood, and enjoryable different personality from the legion of Marths. (Honestly I could simply talk about my favorite FE characters for a while)
-Dr. Richtofen (Nazi Zombies); Don’t play Zambies anymore, but Richtofen will always be another enjoyable hammy villain for me.
-Undyne (Undertale); There’s nothing quite like getting heroically punched in the face, and Undyne gives it to ya in spades- her section of the game was my favorite by far thanks to her.

In your opinion, what is the best Mario Kart game? And as an added bonus, what Mario Kart game do you think had the best roster?

Sonnyslavenproductions
Started with a Super Circut, and my love for that one is nostalgic. In terms of game, Mario Kart DS is my favorite, with 8 Deluxe being close. DS’s mission mode and fun courses give it the win for me.
Wii had the best roster, with enough diversity that Baby Daisy is the only bad choice. 8 Deluxe, again, is the same where at least has an expanded roster, but here the bad choices are more notable.
Oh and I play Waluigi all the way, which is why I hated 7’s roster.

ShadBad I really love all your movesets their all amazing and Interesting and I would really would like to know Who's your Favorite Character or Characters out of All the Characters in Beatdown amd Why and also I really loved the Dan Backslide CONFOUND THOSE LAWLER BOYS!!!

Jules Reynolds
Hey thanks!
In the current revealed roster, my personal favorite characters (outside their moveset) in Beatdown are Matt (IMO has my favorite personaity of the Eddsworld gang), Dan Backslide (His antics and hamminess), John Egbert (a huge relatable nerd) and Umbridge (hilarious different take on one of the most despised villains in fiction)

Out of any of the Lawl Movesets you made, which one are you least proud of?

Adam Powell
Stephen Quire is the one that's gotten the worst reception, and even then it wasn't too negative. Still, I felt that he could have been better since his character is one of the least favorites of fans. Umbridge is close second moveset wise, but her personality made up for it since she's slowly becoming a favorite (she got two cameos already; in LotD's Darkpokon and TSLB@E's Walrus Grandpa).

Is there any interesting trivia about Dan Backslide you would like to share?

Aitor Molina
Dan's voice is the closest you'll get to Mel Blanc's actual voice, considering all his other Looney Toons voices are so distinct and varied.
In fact his Star KO comes from a source that comes close to matching his Dan voice; the Jack Benny Program, a skit comedy show from the 50's that had Blanc as a reoccurring actor. This is the scene where the Star KO comes from; I highly recommend it https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r4Dw3vvXGUg

If your characters had evil alts (Example, in lawl of the dead Keygen has Blue Screen of Death as alt), who would they be?

Alright so here's some ideas I guess, mixed in with actual palettes some characters have:
-John: Probably a Grimdark or Crockertier inspired alt
-Markiplier: Darkiplier
-Umbridge: Either Movie Umbridge or Umbridge's Mama
-Watts & Rosalene: Zombie Alts based off the Zombievas
-Karkat: Same as John probably
-Tom: I guess Christmas Tom from Zanta Claws 3?
-Matt: Zombeh Matt from Zombeh Attack 3
-Frisk: Chara
-Viola: Ellen
