Element Alignment: Inspired by the Skylanders series of games, Golden Fist features an elemental system. Depending on the character's aligned element, they'll have advantages and disadvantages on certain stages or against certain characters. This also plays into a new feature known as the Elemental Abilities, in which a bar fills up while combatants are fighting to grant them an ability based on their element. Characters will fall into the Air, Dark, Earth, Fire, Light, Life, Magic, Tech, Undead, or Water elements.
Alternate Characters: Featuring a new type of character, the Alternate Characters! These characters are basically clones, but share the same slot as another character, with a different element or slight differences to that character. Unlocking conditions for Alternate Characters are currently unknown.
