The Dreaded Pirate of Sequin Land, Risky Boots is the leader of a notorious pirate group, formed mainly of herself and her robotic Tinkerbat army. She is the main enemy that Shantae has to face, being incredibly sly, crafty and willing to even pin Shantae's friends against one another to get what she wants.

Entrance Quotes:

#1: Ho Ho Ho! (Her trademark laugh), This looks like it'll be very entertaining!

#2: Men! Prepare the TinkerTub for battle!

#3: It's alright Men, I'll handle this problem myself!

#4: It's been a while since I've had to use my sword in battle. Show me what you've got!

Against Tron Bonne: You think I'm going to be outshined by an amateur pirate like you?

Against Sentinel: The TinkerTub could use a few upgrades, I think your parts will suffice.

Against Felicia: Your dance skills remind me of someone I know…I don't think I like YOU either.

Lines against Risky Boots:

Tron Bonne: Well well, looks like the poor ruffian class of pirate still exists! I'll take everything you've got!

Phoenix Wright: It's time to reap what you sow Ms. Boots!

Unique Moves

Tinker Trick (Backward + H)

A quick attack in which Risky will cross her arms and chuckle for a moment as two Tinkerbats come out from behind her, stabbing in both directions to make sure that it can get opponents either in front of her or behind her.

Special Moves

Tinker Harpoon (Qcf + A) (100,000)

Risky will call upon the help of her trusted crew, the Tinkerbats, summoning one to shoot a Harpoon gun at the opponent. The harpoon with either be shot at a straight angle (L), at an upward angle (M) or straight up (H)

Tinker Lance (Dp + A) (120,000)

The second attack in which Risky uses the assistance of her TinkerBat Crew, Risky will summon a Tinkerbat soldier on a hover pack, which will zoom across the screen to cause damage to the opponent as it rams through the opponent. The Tinkerbats in this state have a high resistance to physical damage, but can be quickly knocked out of commission if they get hit with projectiles.

Anchor Cannon (Hcb + A) (142,000)

Risky will put out a gun-like weapon with an anchor on the end of it, launching it across the screen. If it connects with the opponent, it will pull them in close to Risky and become attached to a Cannon, then being shot to the other side of the screen. This attack works a lot like the attack of MVC Original Ruby Heart's Rafale Cannon.

Swashbuckler (Dpb + A) (90,000 - 120,000)

A quick dashing attack in which Risky will quickly dash forward, using a large number of sword swings to damage the opponent. The amount of distance travelled and damage done depends on the attack button that's used.

Cannon Fire (Qcf + S) (100,000)

A cannon will appear next to Risky, who will then light the fuse and shoot it in an arc-like angle across the screen to hit the opponent. The ball is large and moves very fast, being able to wall bounce airborne opponents to set them up for combos.

Hyper Combos

TinkerTub: Cannon Barrage (Qcf + AA) (285,000)

Risky will summon her Tinkertub into the background, jumping on top and commanding all cannons to open fire. Risky will then lean off the side of the boat and laugh as the opponent gets consistently hit with cannonballs, shooting off the final bomb as she kisses the opponent goodbye from afar.

Blades of the Sea (Dp + AA) (280,000)

Risky will draw a second Cutlass sword and do several spinning jump attacks into the opponent, the final one sending both her and her opponent high into the air. She'll then send in a Tinkerbat soldier to then shoot the opponent with a Harpoon to finish off the attack. This attack works a lot like the spinning blade move that Cervantes from Soul Calibur possesses.

Level 3: TinkerTub: Overdrive (Hcb + AA) (450,000)

Risky Boots will once again summon her TinkerTub Tank, only this time it will be on land and standing on legs. It will then open its mouth and shoot out a large anchor, trying to connect with the opponent. If it touches the opponent, it will retract and entrap the opponent inside the boat. The opponent will then be spit out, stuck in a barrel and unable to move. The barrel is packed with explosives, which the TinkerTub then leaps very high into the air and comes crashing down on, causing a huge amount of damage before it disappears off screen and the attack ends.

Win Pose:

Risky Boots will cross her arms and chuckle, her Tinkerbat soldiers behind her as she raises  her cutlass high with pride.

Victory Quotes:

#1:  Ho Ho Ho! Yet another victory for the one and only Risky Boots!

#2: The battle is over! Men! Start the salvaging now!

#3: Everything you once owned is now mine! Now run before you get hurt anymore!

#4: You didn't think you were going to beat me, did you?

Against Tron Bonne: The sea will always prevail over the Sky! Pathetic Amateur!

Against Deadpool: One more comment about my occupation and you'll be missing an arm!

Against Phoenix Wright: To a Rogue like me, your "Laws" are meaningless!

Assist Quotes:

Call Partner:



"Do I have to do everything?"

Last Person Switch-Out:

"Oh Come on! You're all useless!"

I hereby give Capcom full rights over this moveset and are welcome to use this in any way/shape/form that they desire.
The Dreaded Pirate and ultimate enemy of Sequin Land and Shantae, Risky Boots makes her way into the MVC3 World along with her arch enemy Shantae.

Risky Boots plays mostly in comparison to Tron Bonne from MegaMan Legends, and seems to have a rivalry with her (Seeing as they're both Pirates/Theives)

Anyways, I hope you enjoy. :) And I hope that one day Capcom will accept these characters into their crossovers!

How about a color scheme that's all black and red (ala the limited palette of the GBC game)?

I wonder if you can do Rotty Tops next? I bet Arthur, Hsien Ko and Frank West would have special quotes against her, and vice versa...

Cool to see her against Tron. Also what's Deadpool's quote a nod to?
Hotfeet444 Featured By Owner Feb 13, 2012  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Probably Pirates of the Caribbean. XD That or something about being a pirate. XD
zferolie Featured By Owner Feb 13, 2012
Very nice. I would play as he and Shantae. And She would team up with my favorite thief Tron Bonne.
