I think the issue with a Medusa Echo is that she'd arguably have to be balanced against the rest of the roster instead of just Palutena like the other Echoes.With custom moves seemingly gone, I'm gonna make a "bold" prediction here: Medusa will be in this game as a "half" echo (like Dr. Mario is to Mario) of Palutena, with different specials.
Palutena's custom moves contain some pretty different stuff from her regular moves that could easily be made to fit Medusa. Heavenly Light and Celestial Firework could easily be visually reworked into something that fits her theme, Exposive Flame could fit without even changing anything, same for Rocket Jump as her Up Special (cool idea for this one: she pops her head off from her body, using that one-eyed form that she has and then grows a new body after the jump is complete). For her regular attacks she can just use Palutena's regular attacks since she's also been depicted with a staff.
