Kris is the roboticized Mew.
Kris the Mew (known simply as Kris in many comics) is a character featured prominently in the Super Smash Brothers series. She is a shiny Pokémon, a Mew, given mainly cybernetic after being partially roboticized by Dr. Wily. In both the comic and the anime, Kris is a member of the "Mega Fighters" dedicated to combating the evil Dr. Wily.
Kris is just a shiny Mew. In Pokémon Extreme Rivals, she is depicted with light blonde hair, vibrant blue-green eyes, a tuft of hair sticking down in front of her face, and mainly over her left eye. She wears a Bomberman-styled clothes on and off, usually consisting of a blue shirt with black belt that covers the parts of her torso and pink feet and gloves.
She is roboticized: all, because Dr. Wily turns her into a robot but she was then saved by Mario. In the early issues of the comic, her parts were primitive-looking, as was Dr. Wily's technology; a later upgrade gave her a more 'natural' shape. Despite being roboticized, Kris retains her natural tail. It has been confirmed by editors that her torso is also roboticized. Kris was shown to have a blue stomach in an alternate future timeline, where she is de-roboticized.
Her normal clothing in the Pokémon Extreme Rivals series consists of the aforementioned shirt (which is more indigo than blue in the comic version) and a black belt. More recently, she can be seen carrying a pair of revolvers. Kris was also depicted wearing an outfit reminiscent of Amy Rose while attending Dynamo High School.
Kris was not always a robot. She was a fully flesh-and-blood Pokémon until she was captured by Dr. Wily in her early teens. While still in the active roboticizer she was rescued by Sonic the Hedgehog and Mario whom brought her back to Netfree. She displayed her tremendous strength and quickly became one of the Mega Fighters' best leader, presumably the star of Pokémon Extreme Rivals.
Kris is a kind, gentle and considerate person with a lot of integrity. She's extremely optimistic given her condition and displays a soft, feminine charm. Despite this, she has a surprisingly tomboyish streak in that she isn't afraid to work up a sweat or get dirty.
Kris has immense strength in artificial limbs, telescopic extending limbs, flight via rocket boosters (in feet), laser cannon in left arm, and telepathic skills.
She's prone to typical robotic weaknesses and disabling her limbs would basically render her helpless. And being a robot means she can't swim. Her robotic abilities also seem to be connected to her energy.
Super Smash Brothers ("SatMS")Edit
In the Super Smash Brothers anime, Kris the Mew is a member of the Netfree Power Fighters. Little is revealed about her past, other than she had been friends with the other team members since childhood. The series does not detail how or when Kris became partially roboticized although an unused storyboard from the series indicates that such an origin was originally in the works. She has the ability to talk with telepathy.
Kris is seen only twice in her un-roboticized form during the TV series; in the episode "Super Conversion" a de-roboticizer is tested on her and is successful, although the effects are only temporary, and she returns to her previous state later in the same episode. The two-part episode "The Ultimate Blast" features Kris as a child, prior to her transformation. Mario time travels back in time, and rescues Kris from being turned into a robot earlier in history. Although his efforts ensure that the Power Fighters still exist in the present, Kris remains roboticized.
Kris's main asset was the tremendous strength afforded by her robotic limbs. Although her metal half works flawlessly for the most part, in the episode "Mario Passed Out", the telescoping ability of her legs (referred to as 'leg ladders' and 'ladder legs') cause her problems several times. In "Mario and Peach", her robotic arm malfunctions at one point; when Pikachu tries to help her up, he accidentally pulls her robotic arm off at the shoulder (this scene is edited out of the syndicated version of this episode, although it is included in the 2011 DVD release).
Kris is the leader of the Mega Fighter during the events of Pokémon Extreme Rivals, and she is the only leader whose parentage is never explored. In these series, she was not a a Shiny Pokémon, and she remains pink. In a scrapped plotline by the Super Jump Punch staff, Kris would have made a trip to her home town, where her real name, Mew, would have become known. Because this plot will not come to pass, it is not considered canon. Like the rest of the Mega Fighters, it is assumed that Kris lost her parents before or during Wily's coup.
Like the other TV show and comic characters, Kris does not appear in any of the games as a regular character, but she makes a cameo appearance as a rare Pokémon in the Super Smash Brothers Brawl-modified Wii game, Super Smash Brothers Unlimited.
Kris was intended to be a playable character in the planned Mario Kart Wii-modified game, Super Smash Brothers Racing, which would incorporate characters and elements from the Super Smash Brothers TV series. However, when the project was changed to Nintendo Racing (which was later canceled), Kris, along with the other TV show elements, was dropped from the game.
“Based off of a character that I made, Kris is the obnoxious little shiny Pokémon. She has blue fur, and is dressed up like Whitemail (White Bomber's armored form) from Bomberman B-Daman Bakugaiden but only in the Pokémon Extreme Rivals Saga. Peach say she can't go outside yet because she's too young, but she usually ignores her and goes out anyway, often making a situation worse. She does not have an attribute, and her magical powers cause people (and this means anyone) to inflate and barf at the same time!”
In the TCGEdit
Kris the Mew appeared as a Pokémon card in the Trading Card Game:

- Mega Buster
- Proto Buster
- Kris is the only Pokémon that is shown to learn all signature moves except the ones from Generation V.
- By mistake, Kris was referred to as Crystal in the earliest issues of the comic book. It was corrected in issue #6, as well as reprints for these early stories. This is true that Kris' alternate name is named after Crystal Franks, who created the comic. This will make Crystal's proper "Pokésona" mascot on Fur Affinity, deviantART, and other websites.
- Kris mainly uses Mega/Proto Buster from the Mega Man series, although these are unofficial moves.
- In the Super Jump Punch! Issue #15, PurpleKecleon of deviantART and Fur Affinity incorrectly states that Kris is a robot as being a Psychic/Steel Pokémon. Kris is actually a pure Psychic-type, while her robotic form was given by Dr. Wily.
- Kris is a main character in the Super Jump Punch! comic series and SatMS TV series, but typically does not appear in the games, although she did make an appearance in the hacked Wii game, Super Smash Brothers Unlimited. In this game her body was the teal color it was in early issues of the comic.
- In the first SatMS episode, Super Smash Brothers Go!: Thanksgiving Blasted, and the early Super Jump Punch! comics, Kris had teal fur, but it was later stated in the Super Jump Punch! that it was because of a reaction when she fell in a vat of chemicals during a mission against Bowser and Eggman.
- As she was a main character in the comics, Kris was first officially introduced to the European Super Smash Brothers audience when Super Smash Champion comics was released.
- Kris is one of the only Super Smash Brothers characters to not be introduced into the games (with the exception of Super Smash Brothers Unlimited), despite her large role in the comics; in the Super Jump Punch! comic's "Mubix: 25 Years Later" arc, she is even gives birth to a shiny Mewtwo nicknamed "Yujo".
- In Nintendo: Inflation Go!, Kris was depicted as a chibi Mew. In this series, she was not a robot, and even not a shiny Pokémon.
- Kris is revealed to have a power that makes anyone nearby to vomit or inflate, according to her profile.
- Kris is not confused with Aqua Mew, although they both look exactly alike.
