please note that i do write changelogs, so check that out if you wanna know more bout what's changed

- Complete Moveset
- Complete Animation
- Moderately easy to use, straight-forward moves
- Semi-stage control element (Nspecial acid-raincloud)
- Few more functionality for the said acid-raincloud
- Kirby Ability support
- Abyss Runes Buddy support
- Few other interaction supports
- Few special color costumes that changes some visual stuff
- Potato Fries

Also available is a home-stage for Acid Rainbows, Starry Hilltop!

Some quirks/guides:
- FSpecial is a full super-armor, but always travels a set distance in same speed.
- Dash-attack startup has a shield cancel, so you don't have to commit to dash-attack if you throw it out accidentally, or you could use it to bait out something.
- Lightning always travels full distance in 8 frames, no matter how far. All thanks to sprite scaling! It, however, has a range limit.
- All aerials can interact with the acid-raincloud. When an aerial hits, it will "charge" the raincloud with electricity(?).
- Forward Tilt and Up Strong can also hit the raincloud as well, but it won't charge the cloud, only influencing its location.
- Raincloud's charge will be full with two hits.
- Once full, hit the raincloud with an aerial again (excluding Neutral Air) to launch the raincloud in the general direction the aerial would launch opponents, while the raincloud starts summoning a lightning by itself! Catch the opponent off-guard!
- Up Strong can 'detonate' the cloud as well.
- When using Down Special, depending on the level of the charge, cloud can cast up the lightning quicker.

- cloud seem to drift a bit after being interacted. cause of issue unknown and idk how i'd fix it

It feels like neutral b should have a slight stun effect on it, but not that much, cause of the whole acid cloud thing

Using the runes that lowers friction and the gives the cool new dash on this character is some of the most fun I've ever had playing this game
