Thematically Scythes are harvesters. Of both wheat like plants and lives.
Commonly associated with farmers and Reapers/Necromancers.

AOE attacks are a possible choice given their size and weight.

Debilitating status/debuff inflicters to represent the death like attributes.

Maybe even stealing buffs if you can figure that out given their "harvesting" nature.

In Fell Seal, I recall them giving Scythes a high Crit chance...or was it Crit Multiplier? I forgot...

If your combat system separates slashing from stabbing, have the Scythe be the weapon where executing Slashing/Stabbing damage are switched around (ie making a stabbing motion with a scythe causes it to slice the target, making a slicing motion with a scythe causes it to stab the target).

If positioning is a thing in your combat system, perhaps a short-range move that has the scythe-user drag the target even closer using the side of the blade facing the holder?

@derge12 What kind of battle system are you using anyway? That would help narrow down the answers...

Finally caved and implemented TAA Spider's book plugin. What little I lost in terms of aesthetic for the drawn books and notes, this more than makes up for in legibility, organization, and that sweet, sweet update text feature.

Micro rant. The worst part of working from home when you live with your family is seeing how inconsiderate they are. "Hey, you're sitting in front of your computer, that means you're not doing anything! I want to put the TV at 200 decibels!"

If I was working in the office would you still talking me like that?
