Fashion Edit

Zoolander is the only character whose entire moveset relies on a special hidden build-up called fashion, which grows when preforming specific actions:

  • Walking (+1% per half a second walking)
  • Dealing damage to opponents with A attacks (excluding Smashes) and Bulk Up (% fashion = % damage delt)
  • Pummels, Front or Down throws

However, he can also lose fashion by:

  • Getting damaged by opponents (% fashion lost = % damage taken)
  • Using Strong Smashes, charged or not (-15% fashion)

Derek starts off each match with 30% fashion. Using the above methods, the limit is (normally) 100%. However, his fashion can be risen to 150%.

Special MovesEdit

Standard B- Go MonkEdit

Derek will attempt to... remove his underwear... for as long as B is pressed. When successful, his fashion will rise to 150% (aka, his fashion will equal 150%). If he fails, he will take 15% and will lose -30% fashion. The success rate of this move depends on how long B is held:

  • 0 seconds- 1%
  • 1 second- 20%
  • 2 seconds- 40%
  • 3 seconds- 60%
  • 4 seconds- 80%
  • 5 seconds- 100%

Side B- MagnumEdit

Derek will conjure up a shield that costs -10% fashion to initiate, along with -5% fashion per second it's up. The shield can stop enemy projectiles, with a maximum of 6. Also, any enemies touching the shield will be stunned while constantly dealing damage from the shield. The shield stops when A is pressed , 1/2 fashion is drained, or once 6 projectiles are stopped. Afterwards, a shock wave emits throughout the opponents, which stuns them. An opponent will be stunned for a longer time span depending on how many of their projectiles were stopped. Also, stopped projectiles will drop as items, retaining their original effects.

Up B- Bulk UpEdit

Derek hangs on the side of a metal pole, with his legs constantly swinging up and down. When A is pressed, he will launch himself upwards, in which the height depends on where his legs were positioned. Damage dealt with this attack also adds up fashion.

Down B- PhotoshootEdit

Derek surrounds himself in camera flashes that ultimately lead to one bigger flash. This attack costs -30% fashion per use. However, when A is tapped right before the shockwave, it will triple in size, costing -120% fashion. The shockwave will do 30% damage and high knockback to closer opponents, and 4% damage plus an additional stun to opponents farther away.


Derek's three friends appear, yelling "ORANGE MOCHA FRAPPUCCINO!!!" to him, with Derek smiling. The four of them get into their car, as "Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go" begins playing. The car will begin gliding across the stage, both horizontally and vertically. The car will do damage and drag opponents. When the song goes "Bang-Bang-Bang!", the car will zip across the screen thrice, dealing damage (the Bang-Bang-Bang part will not drag enemies to their death). Then, a Starbucks appears in the middle of the stage, as the music slows down, the car crashes into the store, exploding and dealing damage to anybody foolish enough to stand by. While the debris deals 10% damage at collision, it will also add +50% fashion with the possibility to make it reach 150% tops.


Note: here he shows us his "unique looks".

  • Up Taunt- Ferrari
  • Down Taunt- Le Tigre
  • Side Taunt- Blue Steel

Victory/Losing PosesEdit

  • Victory #1- "Did you ever think that maybe there's more to life than being really, really, really riduculously good-looking?"
  • Victory #2- *drives away with his friends, partying*
  • Victory #3- "Wetness, is the essence of beauty."
  • Lose #1- *stunned look*
  • Lose #2- See Trivia section.

Trophy DescriptionEdit

It all started when Magatu heard of this tournament. At first he was pleased, even comparing it to the awesomeness of the piano key necktie... but then he stumbled upon the comments the masses have written about it... "I FEEL LIKE I'M TAKING CRAZY PILLS!" he exclaimed, and then used his best solution to solve a problem: brainwash Zoolander. It always works. To Derek's compensate his lack of brain, he's reaally fashionable... with a popularity even more crushing than Gaston's. He's even more skilled than before: he got trained by Hansel to go monk.

Snake CodecEdit

Snake: ...Huh? God?

Colonel: Lol what the shit... it's me, Colonel.

Snake: You know, I just don't like this guy...

Colonel: Snake, you know what can help you with your issues?

(Otacon appears the fuck out of nowhere)


Snake: You're gay Otacon.

Otacon: Ay Snake!

Trivia Edit

  • Zoolander is the first character who's moveset solely relies on a secret build-up; fashion.
  • Zoolander is the first "Round 2" character, who start the second character select screen.
  • Zoolander is the first character to have an alternate losing pose. By mashing A & B, a "cutscene" happens where Zoolander interupts the winner's victory animation, thinking that he won the match. The winners then tell him to notice that they won, not him. They then show a cutscene from the movie, except the poster that covered Zoolander's poster is replaced by a poster of the winner, & the congradulations poster that he sees when he gets home has the winning part of the message scratched out & replaced with luzing.
  • Zoolander is also one of the four characters to not show his full name. In this case, they left out his first name, Derek, and just put Zoolander - Derek's last name and the name of the movie. The other characters are Haruhi, whose last name, Suzumiya, is left out, Aya, whose last name, Drevis, is also left out, and Weird Al, whose last name, Yankovic, is also.
  • Zoolander lags, when turning to the left. This is a reference to the movie, where Derek couldn't turn left.
