Neutral B: You're HiredEdit

When pressing B, Jameson will hire the opponent in front of him, giving them a camera. The camera will replace any item that the opponent may be holding. When an opponent is holding a camera, all of their A moves are disabled, being replaced with the ability to take pictures. Special moves abd grabs are still useable, however. When a picture is taken, a photo is released. The camera can only be liberated if they take 5 pictures, or if Jameson fires them. Even if the camera is liberated, they are still hired. Jameson can also rehire opponents that are already hired by him. By doing so, they start developing self confidence (they heal from damage). In doing so, they get the camera back. The more they are rehired, the more damage they heal (5% the first, 10% the second, ect.), as their camera capacity resets to 5. Opponents with the top 12 Ego stats will start their re-hiring with 10%, as the healing effects from rehiring increase by 5%. When Jameson steps on a photo, he will review it. The effects of the review will reach the opponent anywhere on stage, as the effects depend on what was photographed;

  • An item/nothing will damage the photographer with a 1% stun.
  • A passive character will damage the photographer with a 10% trip.
  • An attacking character will heal the photographer for 15%.
  • An Assist Trophy (character) will heal the photographer for 20%.
  • A horniness move will heal the photographer for 30% and will stun Jameson.
  • A Final Smash will heal the photographer for 100%.
  • A Good (all but horniness) photo examined when a photographer is on the front page will deal that photographer 2% damage along with a trip.

When Jameson is close to a camera, he can press B to take it for himself. The photo capacity remains with Jameson. Jameson's pictures go right into his pocket as he will only keep the latest 5 taken. Taken photos are used in The Front Page.

Side B: You're Fired!Edit

Using this attack, Jameson will take out a combustable lemon,. Pressing B makes him throw it forward, and pressing A makes him throw it at an arc. Opponents hit by a lemon take 10% damage, and anyone nearby will take minimal damage. If a hired opponent is hit with a lemon, they are fired. If they are holding a camera, they take 30% damage. When fired, the hired opponent loses their camera, and re-hires are reset back to 0 (meaning if they are re-hired any more, they go back to healing 5% (or 10% if they are in the top 12 ego) regardless of how many times they were rehired).

Up B: Interview with the GoblinEdit

From the bottom of the screen, the Green Goblin will fly diagonally up depending on where Jameson is standing. When the Goblin reaches Jameson, he will grab him and fly upwards for a couple seconds before dropping him. Initially, the Goblin deals damage to any opponents in the way, but not when he is interviewing Jameson.

Down B- The Front PageEdit

Using a pocketed photograph of an attacking opponent/Final Smash, Jameson will take a random one and place it on the Front Page. There can be only one at a time, as when a new one is used, an old one vanishes. If a photographer is on The Front Page, they cannot heal when they are rehired. Good photos will also count as bad photos. When a Final Smash (any part of a final smash) is put on the Front Page, everyone hired by Jameson can't heal with rehires, as the user of the Final Smash will deal x1.5 more damage and knockback. Tag teams only affect the one member that was photographed. If Jameson tries to put up a photo that cannot be used, or if he doesn't have any photos, he will be left vulnerable. A front page can be destroyed by taking 50% damage, which automatically fires everyone previously hired.

Final Smash- Interdimensional JournalismEdit

Jameson will announce that he is mad, and will transform into an anime counterpart. At this point, he will take a picture of the closest opponent, trapping them in a photo. Anime!Jameson will then burst through the photo and beat up the trapped opponent. After dealing them 80%, he will pull out a gun powered by his laughing faces, talk about how the power of the press triumphs, and will shoot them. The shot will release a flaming Jameson who punches the opponent back onto the stage, flinging outward. He can miss the opponent when initially executing the attack, however.


  • Down Taunt- "What are you waitin' for, chinese New Year? Go! Go! Go!"
  • Side Taunt- "DO YOU KNOW WHO I AM?!"
  • Up Taunt- "Yes! You! Out the front door! Parking lot! Car! Goodbye!" (this fires a random opponent)
