Jenny "XJ-9" Wakeman, Hugh Neutron and Rocko Rama have all been announced for Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl, the platform brawler featuring Nickelodeon mascots and characters.

Jenny will be the first character releasing later today. Hugh and Rocko will be releasing in the summer and fall respectively. The trailer released only gave us a glimpse of Genny's moveset, aside from a quick scene featuring Hugh riding a motorcycle.

Based on what's shown in the trailer, Jenny is armed with attacks that encompass a lot of area thanks to her ability to transform her limbs into hammers and buzz saws.

It's also demonstrated that Jenny has access to a couple of projectiles. One of her projectiles causes her to transform one of her hands into a rocket. Similar to Pit's arrows (in Super Smash Bros.), this rocket hand can be controlled to move upwards or downwards as it travels.

While in the air, Jenny also uses laser vision to attack from afar. It's very fast and covers about a third of the Jellyfish Fields stage before going slightly further beyond that. Functionally, it appears to work very similarly to Superman's airborne laser vision from the Injustice series.

Not much is known about Hugh and Rocko's gameplay, but Hugh's profile has him holding two wooden ducks in both hands. Considering Hugh's comical fascination with ducks in the The Adventures of Jimmy Neutron cartoon, it's likely that these wooden ducks will play some sort of role in his moveset.

While it might seem odd that Hugh Neutron is appearing before his son Jimmy, the main character of the Jimmy Neutron cartoon, we've already had a few instances of other characters from certain IPs appearing before their respective main characters.

Notably, all three of these characters have been extremely popular on fan polls. In fact, Jenny is typically the most requested character based on these polls.

Hugh is similar to Nigel Thornberry in that both characters have become extremely popular due to internet memes. Somehow, Hugh has apparently become an expert and remorseless duelist using cards from Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Monsters.

"Looks like you're going to the Shadow Realm, Jimbo," is often what Hugh can be heard saying as he makes the winning move against his son, Jimmy Neutron.

All three characters will be releasing with unique stages and costumes. The official Twitter account for Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl released images that show Jenny's alternate costume in preparation for her release this Monday.
