Bernie is a guest character in Battle Craze, representing Ayasme's 'VenDeadA' series. A middle-aged humanoid with a glass eye, trying to return to a “normal” life after saving his world from the resurrection of a maleficent god. Trapped in the world of Battle Craze with his closest friends Jimmy and Lee via a RED DISC, they are forced to fight again to find a way back to Galdakilus.
Stage: Universe-VDA: The Scalloped Kidney
Adrenaline Thrush: Bernie can call for assistance from Jimmy and Lee, who each have their own cooldown timers. Additionally, Bernie’s Craze Technique, Rambling Inventory, can search for, store, and use one of 6 weapons as different attacks. After landing a Counter Hit, Adrenaline Thrush activates for a brief period. While active, Jimmy and Lee’s cooldowns reduce much faster, and Rambling Inventory searches through weapons much faster.
- Great neutral
- Can lock down the opponent with Lee assist
- Slightly below average damage
Streetwise: A knockdown caused by or following a Counter Hit will cause the opponent to be unable to quickly recover, opening them up for off-the-ground follow ups. Bernie also has access to a unique throw specifically against vulnerable grounded opponents.
- Great mix options
- OTG grab allows for combo extension in the corner, giving him HIGH DAMAGE combos.
- Tobacco projectile beats many other projectiles, including some supers!
Trial of the Mental: Bernie’s Craze Technique and Counter Hits will start a Dice Roll. After 2 Dice have been rolled, Bernie and his opponent’s next attack will cause a Counter Hit, and reset the Dice. If both Dice are the same number, the next attack is a Dire Counter Hit instead, unless Bernie is holding 2 Ones. If Bernie lands a Counter Hit with two rolled Dice, he will gain Chips equal to the Dice total. If he is hit, he will lose that many Chips instead. These Chips increase the damage of Spine Apathy followups and Wake The Pharmacy.
- Focuses more on a grappler playstyle
- High damage combos.
- Has access to armored attacks on moves like "Left Food" and "Spine Apathy"
