If you are seeing strange behavior with the layout, especially with the left navigation (extra width is intended, missing background is not), this was caused by recent changes. Please hard refresh (often Ctrl + F5) and it should resolve itself.

Jokes aside, I actually knew that Glass Joe could dodge, I even submitted a revision before you rehauled the entire game sheet. However, while testing for Don Flamenco, I could just never get him to do it. Probably because in his first fight, he always seems to die at every star punch, and his second fight is notorious for being very hard to get stars in at all.

Overall, this overhaul seriously brought some new and previously unseen sprites to attention. Like, seriously, if you've played this game as long as anyone here has, it's so surreal to see Super Macho Man's unused creepy laugh or Mr. Sandman's unused pointing after a loss. It just goes to show that Nintendo are really good at cramming in features that make a character feel complete, making sprites almost no one would see, but *just in case* people threw that many star punches at Glass Joe, they programmed him to dodge.

You can get everyone to dodge by hitting them with enough star punches while they're not stunned. After enough of those, they begin dodging (for Glass Joe and Von Kaiser, it takes so many that it was long assumed their dodge sprites simply weren't used, but I can guarantee they are). I used YY-CHR to get the tiles from the game, then compared with in-game screenshots and later made a hack to make the transparent parts opaque to get accurate OAM boundaries. The dodge sprite is real even if it looks like a composite, that's just how it looks in the game. The blocking sprites look like that because part of the head in the neutral ones is reused for it, but the rest of the sprite wasn't drawn with it in mind. I presume Nintendo had a different sprite for the top in mind (Glass Joe's equivalent uses unique tiles for that) but to save space, they reused existing tiles and didn't realise the mistake.

How do you get Don Flamenco to dodge? I've never seen him do that. This is a combination of his blocking sprites and Glass Joe's dodge, a sprite with unique art just for that sprite, so I kind of doubt that this is the real sprite.

Also, while it is custom, it would've been neat to keep the custom fixed block sprite.
