I've been following the Smash Bros hype pretty closely because I am slightly obsessed (not that anyone is surprised). Heck, it's not even the first Rain/Smash crossover I considered (see also Rainalina and Zero Suit Ana ;P). It's probably a bit late for me to be doing something like this, since the full roster is known now. Still, I happened to be drawing while listening to the Nintendo Treehouse thing (not even up to Smash yet), and this suddenly popped into my head and I'm like, "Oh, what the hell? Why not?"

Originally, I was going to draw her as just a Mii Fighter, but then I remembered the Mii I used in the comic can't be done. There is no hairstyle that covers one eye, so any Rain Miis would be sadly kind of an accurate. I might still draw it for the hell of it, but it couldn't technically be done in-game (but while I haven't tried other characters from the comic, I imagine most of the rest of the cast could be made).

The design seen here is based on one of Rain's costumes from the original fantasy version of the story. Obviously, the current Rain probably couldn't fight with a sword (much less the way the old one did. Hint: the sheath is also a weapon). It makes me feel a little nostalgic seeing her like this again. The quality is a little iffy here, but whatevs. It's just a little throwaway thing I did because I could. Still, I hope you like it.

I'd certainly have rain as a smash bros character but i don't work at Nintendo so it wouldn't happened

She looks like she would fit in to a smash bros game or Tekken or even soul caliber.

Because I still haven't gone on Skype. Like I said before, I barely if ever use it. I'll add you if/when I go on, but until then, don't worry too much about it. ^_^

I got the purple 3DS for a reason. They weren't selling pink anymore, and even if they did, it would raise questions since I play a lot in public and I wasn't out of the closet yet. Still living as a boy, then.

Okay, Cait. You can do this. You just saw someone's OC as a Smash character. They're perfect for your smashlike you're working on, but you already have plenty of characters. Don't do it. We don't need 27. We don't need 27 fighters. We don't...

Oh god damn it. Rain confirmed for Hyper Smash Basers I think.
