⚠ Warning! Melony is a highly controversial character among the fanbase and is one of the leading causes of flame and flame edit wars! Please edit and comment with extreme caution! Reason: Divisive characterization, due to using a lot of Meggy's traits, being the main cause of the death of Axol and having the fandom's opinions on her split after Genesis Arc. It may also contain inaccurate, misleading, or shocking content, take it all with a grain of salt or by touching grass!
...That no matter what life throws at you, never give up that fighting spirit.
Keep on going, I'm rooting for you.
She is a lazy yet powerful member of SMG4's Gang and the best friend as well as love interest of the late Axol. Originally a watermelon, Melony was inanimate and was therefore carried (and influenced) by other characters.
During The YouTube Arc, she joined the Anti-Cast as Meggy Spletzer's doppelganger and was sent by SMG3 to Meggy's debut in SMG4: If Mario Was In... Splatoon to prevent Mario from being friends with Meggy by knocking him out while he was watching the announcement for the Splatfest. In the finale of the arc, Melony and the rest of the Anti-Cast was motivated to turn against SMG3 by SMG4's Gang, and after her former leader's banishment to the Internet Graveyard, she offically joined the gang.
She was transformed into a human by the Fierce Deity Mask, affecting her appearance and voice in subsequent episodes, as well as granting Melony deity powers.
In SMG4: Mario Babies, It was shown that Melony was born in a farm somewhere in the United States, and had a decent childhood. She later started working in the science and technology field at the Black Mesa Research Facility in New Mexico. Later, she would serve in the United States Army, seen fighting in a battle shortly after being drafted (in a war in Afghanistan, Iraq and Iran probably). Her bravery and achievements led her to meet the then-President Barack Obama, and chosen by NASA to go to space, and accompanying Hideo Kojima at game shows.
After her life in America, she later moved to the Mushroom Kingdom by presumably being imported by a fruit company there, and was purchased by Mario on Christmas 2019, who gave her distinguishable features (Meggy's Inkling goggles, Beanie, and headphones). She was then hired by SMG3 for his Anti-Cast.
After WOTFI 2020, the anti-cast was dissolved and Melony now spent her time with the SMG4 gang and later also became human.
Later in SMG4: To Become A God, Melony was able to obtain the ability to turn into a Fierce Deity version of herself. While at first she couldn't control herself in this form, as of the events of "SMG4: Mario Suffers Infinite Detention" after some training and help from The Bully, Melony is finally able to control her Fierce Deity possessed state.
Melony's training time
In the Genesis Arc Aftermath, Melony has begun to awaken her true powers, so she wants to go to the Omnia Academy Collage with Dr. Kawashima train their powers in the "Power Club".

4th stage - Melony succeeded in a controlled change of her form.
Melony's new control over her powers surprised her greatly.
Ugh... how can I not love a person with a good taste in headgear...
After the Fierce Deity Mask landed on her, Melony has turned into an anime girl: she has a black and red watermelon-themed hoodie dress with a thin green zig zag line in the middle and a watermelon on the bottom right, black socks, red eyes, shoulder-length green hair with two thick strands sticking up in the back along with watermelon hair clips on the bangs, and black marks on her cheeks that resemble both watermelon seeds and the red stripes seen on Fierce Deity Link's face. She is also much taller being around Tari and Belle's height.
Her college clothes consist of a black and burgundy-striped t-shirt, lime green shortalls, calf length black and bungundy striped socks and black velcro strap trainers.
Also on Hobo Bros, Luke and Kevin explained that Human Melony was supposed to be in SMG4: War of the Simps in the Waifu Maker Room, where Melony was to fall in the Cauldron that made the Melony we all know today, but it was too late because the model was still in the works. However, if Melony had been made this way, she would not have the powers she currently has.
Fierce Deity Form
In SMG4: To Become A God, when trying to unleash her true power, Melony's eyes turn white and her hair clips are antique. The sleeves of her hoodie are turquoise, the torso is steeled like the armor, she wears black tights and brown shoes. However, when nearly entering this form, her resembles the Fierce Deity Mask; her eyes turn completely white (causing her to possess no visible pupils or sclera in the process) and her watermelon-like cheeks become the red stripes seen on the mask that she wear. After some training and help from The Bully, Melony is finally able to control her Fierce Deity possessed state, causing her eyes to instead become black with large white pupils. She also retains her college clothes.
Basically, Melony receives face paint with every transformation and she also wears a thin shirt with a stand-up collar and tights. In addition, Melony's eyes are white and her sclera (the white of the eyes) is black.
Personality: Prior to becoming human, Melony was depicted as being rather vague and mysterious, due to being an motionless and inert watermelon. However, she could still show emotions to a degree, such as blushing when watching Two Piece with Luigi, or shock after she and the Anti-Cast witnessed Frankie's deletion. She is also vastly intelligent, as she bears a massive talent for hacking, which has helped a lot in the past. During her first scene in SMG4: Mario's Mask Of Madness, Axol was assuring her that she could be best girl, implying that Melony dreams to be as popular as some of the female members of SMG4's Gang.
In her human form, Melony develops new characteristics; she is now childish and lazy as she is commonly shown sleeping most of the time, referencing her normal and inactive nature from her past life. She has a bad habit on sleeping on anything that she deems "comfortable", including bushes, other watermelons, and sometimes people. Like her melon form, she is also obedient, responding to any orders that are needed from others.
However, Melony can also be defiant to those who attempt to use force on her; when the Happy Mask Salesman attempts to make her give the Fierce Deity Mask back to him, she responds by slapping his hand away while saying "No" to him multiple times. In addition, her massive habit of hacking still remains, as seen when she quickly calls an Uber Eats to help Mario create a massive plate of Spaghetti using the Beeg SMG4 mask to lure a Mario Mask-possessed Meggy.
In SMG4: The Melony Felony, she gets mad at Axol for killing off her favorite character in Axol's "Two Piece", so she briefly stopped being his friend and decided that Bob would be her best friend instead. Unsurprisingly, she ends up picking up a few bad habits from her new friend such as listening to explicit music and learning swear words until Axol later apologizes for what he did. In the same episode, she tries to flirt with an inanimate watermelon.
As shown in SMG4: Mario has a BBQ but he's not invited, she gets angry whenever a single fruit is threatened, going as far as chopping Tari's mechanical arm off, which prompted Meggy to engage with her,she is okay with artificial fruit. In the same episode she kicked Fishy Boopkins into the fountain after Melony found out that he was going to chop the watermelon. This may be because of the fact that she is a literal melon.
In SMG4: Into the Dark Web, she can get easily traumatized and freeze up for a period of time when she's scared. However, she can snap out of that frozen state if she sees something that she deems wholesome, for example Axol's Lil' Chonk form.
She has shown to deeply care for Axol in the Genesis Arc. When the time came and she was forced to kill Axol, she accepted being his girlfriend to which then they shared their first and only kiss before Axol allowing himself to be sacrificed to save the universe from SMG0 after Axol thanked her, leaving Melony extremely depressed, having lost her boyfriend and innocence. After Axol's death, Melony studied to become a manga artist and finish Axol's Two Piece series in his memory, knowing that Axol would want everyone to continue living their lives to their fullest.
In addition, Melony is shown to be very protective of Axol, showing mercy to him even though he was still possesed, and can be shown in the 10 Year Anniversary protecting him, however this is before she was aware of Axol having a crush on her. Melony also gets angry after the robotic bed squashed Axol, infuriating her. In the end of Genesis Arc, Melony was forced to sacrifice Axol to remove an otherworldly monstrosity from the SMG4 Simulation, which contributed to her depression in the process.
She didn't really talk much until SMG4: The Final Piece. Beforehand, she normally communicated using "voice grunting," occasionally including one or two lines of subtitles.
During her first Fierce Deity metamorphosis, she was merciless and brutal, that was because she still couldn't process the death of Axol. She had an urge to destroy everything that has a "0" or the word "Zero".
Mental- & Emotional Development
In the beginning Melony was still very tired and sleepy, hardly doing anything and rarely saying anything correctly. But over time she became more active and talkative. In addition, the powers of the mask that she wore awoke in her. At the beginning she was mentally at least 5 but at the end of the Genesis Arc she showed a maturity of at least 18 year old girls.

Powers and abilities
Hacking Skills: According to SMG3 in SMG4: Mario VS Youtube, Melony has expert hacking skills. Melony is shown on-screen hacking into YouTube's database, but the camera cuts to it simply sitting on a chair.
Summoning: As seen in SMG4: War Of The Fat Italians 2020, Melony appears to have the ability of summoning helpful weapons or tools when no one is looking, though it also serves as a way to express itself. It also seems to have formidable battle skills; when everyone (except SMG4, Mario, JubJub and Whimpu) fought against SMG3's Oof Buttons, the fourth shot showed that Melony killed one with a sword single-handedly off-screen.
Sleeping: SMG4: The Bed. reveals that she can run out of power and requires sleep to recharge, which explains why she sleeps near constantly.
Fierce Deity Form: After intensive training, she managed to bring her strength to a whole new level and even change her form. She now has more powers of the Fierce Diety Mask at her disposal, but because of the depression in her she did not have self-control the first time but was guided by blind anger. Melony therefore tries to control her strength for the next time.
Nearly most of Melony's crimes were unwilling and/or interfered.
Underage Drinking (almost): Melony almost drank the alcohol that Bob told her to try out, but Axol managed to prevent that from happening at the last second by throwing a Koopa Troopa at the bottle, breaking it.
Demonic Rituals: She committed this crime on two separate occasions, first in SMG4: The Bed, while Axol builds the base of Melony's bed, Melony uses some of the wood boards to make a Pentagram and summons Death (Who she says hello to). She then does this again in SMG4: War Of The Fat Italians 2021 competing against Mario on making the strongest password.
Murder (unwillingly): In SMG4: War Of The Fat Italians 2021, to kill SMG0, she had to unwillingly stab Axol with her Deity Sword, killing him and SMG0 in the process. Albeit Axol was willing as he told Melony to sacrifice him to kill SMG0.
Rampage (unwillingly): In her Fierce Deity form, she blindly destroyed a Coca-Cola bottling plant and a tank without knowing what she was doing.
Attacking Authority Figures: Done unintentionally when she went on an uncontrollable rampage and later intentionally when she knocked back Swag with her powers, though this was somewhat justified due to Swag attempting to attack her friends with a katana.
In SMG4: Food Wars, a watermelon is with the main cast and anti-cast at the food party. However, it is not the same watermelon as Melony due to it not having its signature gear and it's stripe patterns are slightly different from Melony's.
Initially, she was the first female character to not usually speak in subtitles until she started speaking more frequently as of SMG4: The Final Piece.
That was because Melony was mentally a child in the beginning, but over time she became more and more an adult inside.
Melony is the third character to get a permanent appearance change after Meggy and Axol.
She is also the second character to have a human change, with the first being her doppelganger, Meggy.
As of SMG4: The Melony Felony her full voice lines are done by WolfyChu, a popular Youtuber who did Apple-Chan in Axol's Two Piece.
Before Wolfychu became her voice actor, fans jokingly stated that she should be voiced by Vannamelon, a popular YouTuber who's name and persona appearance (including color schemes) are reminiscent and references to the watermelon fruit.
Not to mention they're very similar to each other. Aside from having watermelon-esque elements and color schemes to their designs, they have an overall anime-like appearance, and they also share a love for anime.
On May 13th 2021, Vannamelon posted two tweets on Twitter about Melony, officially discovering her. One about her asking who Melony is (by refering to her as a "melon person"), and the other of her demanding help on finding her as she just "want's to talk". SMG4 surprisingly tweeted a reply with a GIF of Melony
The next day on May 14th Vannamelon retweeted SMG4's reply with a video clip of her saying Hi to Melony, showing off a picture she drew of "Hatsune Melon", and asking if they could talk about melons.
When Melony was transformed into an anime-like human girl, Mario complains that she is another "anime thot", a reference to how there are already fourotheroriginalcharacters that are all anime-esque females.
As a human, Melony serves as a foil to Meggy in many ways, just like Toad. Meggy is energetic and is extremely active while Melony is lazy and into technology. While Meggy is virtually allergic to anime, Melony outright enjoys any form of anime (even if it's low quality like Two Piece by Axol).
Their transformations also oppose each other as well. While Meggy's transformation was caused by a traumatic event, took around a year to get used to, and was treated as a big moment story-wise, Melony's transformation was caused by the usual SMG4 humor, with Melony herself not caring about the change at all and did nothing until the story comes to her and was treated casually story-wise. Also, it took Meggy around a year to fully heal after Desti's death, while it seems that Melony was able to bounce back after Axol died in a few days.
Melony is the youngest police officer in the Mushroom Kingdom, at only 2 years old.
According to the Hobo Bros video "Reacting To Melony Memes", Melony's human form was supposed to make its debut in SMG4: War of the Simps by being one of the girls created by the waifu making machine. However, the model wasn't yet finished so they had Melony appear in a cameo in the episode.
This further evidences her transformation being permanent, since the Waifu machine would probably not turn her back to her watermelon form.
Unlike most of the other recent original characters, Melony has a colored mouth (although it's less noticable), while others like Meggy Spletzer and Whimpu have their mouths the same color as their skin.
Melony is one of the Anti-Cast members still seen hanging around with SMG4's Gang, the other member being Whimpu.
As of September 28th, 2021, Melony has been confirmed to officially be a member of SMG4's Gang, according to the channel banner on SMG4's channel, making her the only member of the Anti-Cast so far to fully convert to a member of SMG4's Gang.
