Incarnations: Umbral Endeavor is a Smash-inspired umbrella fighting game for the Nintendo Switch. It is a spin-off of the umbrella RPG Incarnations, as well as a "spiritual successor" to Super Smash Bros. Endeavor.

Gameplay

Umbral Endeavor plays almost identically to Smash Bros. Rather than the usual fighting game battlefields, the fights are set on larger stages with voids on one or more sides. Instead of depleting a health meter, fighters' attacks increase a damage meter. The more damage a fighter has, the more knockback they receive, and being knocked off of the screen and into one of the voids counts as a stock. Special moves also function differently, and are tied to a single button rather than a complicated button input.

One difference from the Smash Bros. series is that Final Smashes are nonexistent. On the other hand, fighters now have access to a new option called Super Smash Attacks to quench their thirst for cinematic K.O.s. Landing a fully-charged Smash Attack against an enemy will cause the user to perform an extra-flashy attack as a follow-up, ending with the target taking more damage than normal and hurtling much farther than normal. Some Super Smash Attacks even have special properties that the regular Smash Attacks lack.

Status Conditions

Umbral Endeavor leans more heavily on special conditions called Buffs and Ailments. Several abilities interact with one or the other in special ways, and so these lists have been provided to quickly define what constitutes as which.

Spin Ye Bottle

Mona Treasure Trove

Mona, the hostess of the Spin Ye Bottle minigame

A minigame that first appeared in Shovel Knight, and returns from the original Incarnations in a new form. This time, it's a bit more faithful to the original. And a bit more dangerous.

During this minigame, Plague Knight's significant other and lab assistant Mona summons vials of enigmatic liquid in midair, and the player(s) has to launch them into targets located at different points on the stage in order to earn points. Unlike the original minigame from Shovel Knight, however, there are no walls and ceiling, and Mona will often call in hazards to try and cut the player(s)'s game short early with a K.O. These hazards include exploding trap vials, hydraulic crushers launched from the sides or top of the stage, gusts of wind created by giant fans, and Percy firing himself at fighters using his catapult.

The "Spin Ye Bottle" track from Shovel Knight always plays in the background during this minigame.

Stages

Items

Summon Program
Series: Incarnations
Origins: Incarnations: Umbral Endeavor
A mysterious stream of data that pulls an Assist Summon into the battle to support the user.
Forbidden Summon Program
Series: Incarnations
Origins: Incarnations: Umbral Endeavor
A corrupt version of the Summon Program that brings a Boss Summon into the fight instead. Bosses are sometimes summoned in Cross Mode, in which they gain powerful new abilities from a power that would normally be foreign to them.
Dragoon Boots
Series: Final Fantasy
Origins: Final Fantasy VI
A pair of boots that grant the wearer the powers of a Dragoon. Equipping them boost the user's jump height and midair movement speed. As an added bonus, their down aerial becomes a falling slam attack that travels straight downwards.
Kiss Sticker
Series: JoJo's Bizarre Adventure
Origins: JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Stone Ocean
A sticker generated by Ermes Costello's Stand, Kiss. Equipping it will cause the user's body parts to split when using certain attacks. This increases the range, doubles the number of hitboxes on the attack, and potentially allows for it to hit twice at once.
Knuckle Sandwich
Series: Knuckle Sandwich
Origins: Knuckle Sandwich
A dubious-looking but oddly delicious burger. Eating it restores health, unsurprisingly. If a human eats it, though, they gain more health than non-humans do when they eat it... How odd...
Life Stone
Series: Shin Megami Tensei
Origins: Shin Megami Tensei
A stone radiating with an otherworldly light. Throwing it at a surface causes it to shatter and release a pulse of healing magic, restoring 25% health for anyone in the blast.
The Power of Love
Series: Scott Pilgrim vs. The World
Origins: Scott Pilgrim vs. The World
A katana that blazes with the ferocity of a certain Canadian guitarist's heart. Wielding it augments the damage and range of the holder's attacks. If they get K.O.'d while carrying it, they respawn with The Power of Self-Respect, a similar-looking but more powerful weapon.
Propulsion Gel
Series: Portal
Origins: Portal 2
A vial of orange liquid. Breaking it near a fighter or item covers them in the stuff, massively increasing their grounded movement speed until the gel washes off.
Red Skull Pin
Series: The World Ends With You
Origins: The World Ends With You
A red pin with a black skull insignia printed on it. Throwing it at an enemy equips it to them automatically, decreasing their overall mobility.
Red Stone of Aja
Series: JoJo's Bizarre Adventure
Origins: JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Battle Tendency
An extremely rare red gemstone that refracts light impossibly well. It is a chargeable projectile weapon that fires off a piercing beam of red light. It takes a while to hit maximum charge, but when it does, it becomes a near-guaranteed K.O.!

Assist Summons

Elizabeth
Series: BioShock
Origins: BioShock Infinite
When summoned, Elizabeth will pry open a Tear centerd on the spot where she appears, creating a large circular area in which the layout and hazards of another stage blend into the current one. Don't worry - she closes it before she leaves!
Jack the Ripper
Series: Shin Megami Tensei
Origins: Shin Megami Tensei II
Jack the Ripper fights alongside the summoner using flurries of slashes using his razor, Dark-elemental magic, and clouds of poisoning gas.
Junpei Iori
Series: Persona
Origins: Persona 3
As soon as he's summoned, Junpei casts Rakukaja to power up the summoner's defenses. Then, he fights at their side using his greatsword and Trismegistus's fire spells.
Komainu
Series: Spectrobes
Origins: Spectrobes
Komainu runs around in the background of the stage, sniffing out items and digging them up for the summoner. It tends to have an easy time finding rare items, so following it around is usually worthwhile.
Mothman
Series: Shin Megami Tensei
Origins: Shin Megami Tensei III: Nocturne
A friend. Mothman stands in one spot, unmoving. If struck, he spreads his wings and releases a massive cloud of golden dust that stuns enemies.
Primrose Azelhart
Series: Octopath Traveler
Origins: Octopath Traveler
Primrose use various dances to power up the summoner's stats while they fight, with the exact effect depending on the dance she's currently performing. She can also use Moonlight Waltz to attack nearby enemies with dark magic, though she doesn't provide any stat buffs while she's doing this.
Sharla
Series: Xenoblade
Origins: Xenoblade Chronicles
Sharla fights with the summoner by using her ether rifle's Thunder Bullet, Tranquiliser, or Metal Blast to snipe distant opponents. She can also use her rifle's Heal Bullets to restore the summoner's health if she can get a clear shot at them.

Boss Summons

Trivia

  • The concept for the game was born out of a desire for more roster freedom than what Super Smash Bros. Endeavor allowed, hence why the title of this game also includes the word "Endeavor" and why the page's tables reuse much of the formatting from the original page.
  • The word "Umbral" was chosen for the title simply because it sounded like "umbrella."
  • The concept of giving Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap to Anne was originally proposed by Pyrostar (tbc) on Discord.
