    King of the Philosophers!

    This is a thread for fans of great thinkers... and 2d fighting games. It was inspired by a recent post by @Starjot wherein he observed that Sigmund Freud and Schadenfreude had a certain homophonic quality. This caused me to note it was also similar to Sho-Ryu-Ken. Sort of. In that you can say Schadenfreude in the same manner you would grunt out Sho-Ryu-Ken.

    What I want you to do is pick a philosopher (I'm including psych guys like Freud and Jung because I think they fit, and because King of the Psychologists doesn't line up as well as a parody of King of the Fighters) and lay out a potential moveset. You are free to include descriptions, design notes, and encouraged to include sketches or artwork.

    I anticipate this thread will be dead within 3 posts, but I could be wrong. Have fun!

    (Note: it would help if you stated your base fighting game for notation. There's a couple major styles, so it will help. I'm going with KoF notation for now, but cribbing from everything. I like numeric keypad notation for stick movement--though if you go Smash Bros, that's obviously going to fall apart. If the wiki comes back, and this thread even works, we should probably add info regarding notations.)

    Sigmund Freud:

    Taunt: snorts a little coke.

    236 + P: Have a Cigar!
    263 + K: Couch Kick
    828: Freudian Slip
    214 + P: Lobotomy (repeat 3x rapidly for full move)
    241 + K: Leukotomy (repeat 3x rapidly for full move)


    Killer Move:

    214123641236 + P + K: Schadenfreude
    I'm suspicious of people who say they'll die for a flag but won't wear a mask for their neighbor.
