Characters (warning - spoilers below)

Primary: Rock Toss. You can move while throwing rocks and keep throwing in the same direction. 
Secondary: Rock Block. You can attack in melee with your rock, or hold it in to guard against attacks in front of you.

Primary: Web Sling. Low damage but stuns for an extended period of time.
Secondary: Bite. An unwieldy but strong attack. Takes time to use, but you can move before and after attacking.

Primary: Supersonic Slice. A simple and reliable projectile.
Secondary: Double Slice. Step into a rapid melee attack.

Primary: Stomp. Fly over enemy attacks, then crash back down with a powerful melee attack.
Secondary: Charging Toss. Rush forwards and throw enemies over your back. During your initial dash you're immune to projectiles. 

Fire Ant (Secret)
Primary: Fireball. A simple but strong projectile.
Secondary: Burn Up. Set yourself ablaze as long as you hold the button. Deals continuous damage in melee, and protects against melee attacks.

Figure 1 (Super Secret)
Primary: Dash Blitz. Rushes forwards into a quick melee attack.
Secondary: Homerun Swing. Step into a melee attack. Can reflect projectiles if timed well, and grants brief projectile immunity.

Human Assists

Flyswatter: A powerful attack that takes a long time to recharge. Deals heavy damage on your position, but it can hurt you too!

Slap: A sweeping attack that deals average damage but stuns effectively. Average recharge time.

Poke: A quick jab attack that recharges quickly. Deals little damage, but if it connects with you, it cancels your current action and frees you from combos.
