-Lots of "Two dollars" references to the movie Better Off Dead ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LdF_Vo4B6Ms )
-Needs more Newsie references (The Starflyer) ( http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0104990/ )
-Needs references (are there any?) to Paperboy videogame
-Lots of people are against Shen's face being revealed in a skin. I would personally like to see it happen, as he's the last of the ninjas to do so. His face could be concealed by a shadow from his hat, if needed.
Visual: Shen brandishes newspaper, holding it in one hand, hitting it against the open palm of the other
SFX: "Four weeks, twenty papers: that's two dollars. Plus tip."
SFX: "I'll see you in tomorrow's obituaries." (Focusen)
SFX: "I read about you, you're on the most wanted list" (WhiteRhasp)
Visual: Shen juggles rolled newspapers
SFX: "Extra! Extra! Read all about it!"
SFX: "What's black and white and red all over?... My newspaper after I'm done with you!" (Or Similar)(Fingyer)
Additional lines (movement, attacking, etc)
- "This just in..."
- "Breaking news..."
- "The end of time is upon us!" (Think stereotypical doomsday conspiracists on the streets)
-"Your subscription to life has just expired" (Xiege3)
-"My paper mache. Your tomb" (Xiege3)
-A pun or joke about headlines
-"I'm going postal!" (Idea from SwedishMoose on reddit)
Ability Changes Basic Attack
- Shen uses rolled newspapers from pouch to strike the enemy (w/ appropriate SFX)
- Bicycle bell SFX on hit
- Mailbox flag visual ontop of struck enemy
- "Delivery" SFX (WhiteRhasp)
- Maybe shen throws up a cloud of newspapers and when they fall he has the shield? (zephyrdragoon)
- He should pick up the bag and hide behind it (Faiike)
- He could have his normal-ish shield but white instead of purple and has opened newspapers or crossed rolled-up newspapers instead of the swords (Akkiokami)
- "Two dollars!" SFX on hit
- "You there!" SFX on hit
- His taunt should leave paper particles behind him just like corporate mundos cleaver (Loputo)(Reddit)
- Visual: He should hop on a bike (frozen toast)MANY requests for this... I think it wouldn't work, but i'm including it because of popularity. "riot pls"
- "We interrupt this program..." SFX on cast
- SFX playing in background of old-timey morse code broadcasting / radio transmission noise (Vulteran) ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d1rpCU7ePKw )
- Instead of folding his arms up to his shoulders he should start to read a newspaper. (Geekbean)
(If canceled) "Delivery Failure!" SFX (WhiteRhasp)
(If canceled) "Return to sender" SFX
- His ult should be a a column of spinning paper. (Phrosn)
- His ult should have a global message and speech saying "Special Delivery!" (Šeicide)
- Either for his Q or his ult, probably his ult, he should say "You've got mail." (1337quickscopez)
If you still aren't a believer consider this:
Shen is the only ninja that hasn't had his face revealed in a skin. It is some sort of twisted fate that this skin must exist.
