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...

Me and my friend got into one of our usual discussions after I reccomended him a game, and I remember the last time we had a discussion like that, he disabled his FA account. This time, I found myself constantly checking my friends account hoping it wouldn't happen again. ...But it didn't.

The thing is... I just can't lie about my feelings, sometimes. :(
COMBAT:

Finally showing combat in my game. The lighting system I'm currently using doesn't transfer over into combat, but I am hoping to find a new one soon... or an update for the one I'm using. The plan is to make combat less bright, though. You'll want to click the video link below and visit YT for audio.
Huge thanks to D757 Gaming for his stream, impressions and review of my game, please check him out!
Thank you to everyone who participated in the 3rd quarter annual Drifty jam! I'm always so impressed with the games people make! This time our winner dominated both categories!

That feeling when you have an out-of-bounds error and an ai enemy exploits it to kill you
