Fantendo Smash Bros. Epoch is a two-dimensional fighter, just like the rest of the series, with gameplay similar to Super Smash Bros. games. However, a new mechanic known as Epoch Cross has been added. At the start of a match, you select not only a character, but a character-themed boost of some sort, allowing players to create their own powerful combos.
Fantendo Smash Bros. Epoch features 12 fighters, with 8 starters and 4 unlockables. The roster was designed to evenly split up old and new characters as fighters.
Unten is one of the eight starter characters of Epoch, representing the self-titled Unten series. Unten is a balanced fighter who can utilize elements from all of his iterations, ranging from a powerful extending axe to electrokinesis. A valiant fighter from Zeon, Unten has had countless adventures and is known across the Fantendoverse as an ally.
Unten's Epoch Cross, Beorn Will, is equally powerful for all characters and boosts basic attacks considerably, while also providing smaller boosts to all other areas.

Volt is one of the eight starter characters of Epoch, representing the VOLT / Reconstitute series. Volt is a fast but fragile fighter on his own, but he can utilize an Ominous Grunt as armor, too. He's a stubborn young Sparkling, but when he's needed to save his world, he answers the call.
Volt's Epoch Cross is Galvan Spark, which boosts the power of specials at a rate corresponding with the fighter's health. It works best with Volt himself and other elemental fighters.

Alyssa's Epoch Cross is Sleuth Intuition, which allows fighters to detect openings for attacks, along with increasing defense. It works well with most modern fighters.
Alyssa thinks for a moment before reaching a conclusion, dealing lots of damage to one fighter. It has to be charged, though.
Alyssa summons her friend Giselle, who uses an umbrella to carry the two through the air briefly.
