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...

Been playing through Skies of Arcadia again, and it really makes me wanna see someone try to implement how ship battles were done in the game into RPG Maker (or really just in general).

split view of both versions of the pocket city you traverse through. there's differences like areas only being accessible in one version of Autumn Bay. or events that only happen in one or the other.
theortically if there were a developer who spied on people's game playthroughs and changed things in real time to make it harder for them, what might be said game developer's motivation?
Hi everyone! Enjoying this nice long weekend. How are you all doing? :)
I just successfully tested having events check if specific actors are in a particular party slot and then changing image to match. This will let me make scenes take into account who is in the party at the time and arrange them accordingly - this is important since I'll have extra actors beyond current party. The script used is the same from MV and is compatible with my current core plugin setup in MZ. Thank goodness.
