I have a few ideas for new characters but for a returning classic boss here's my thought on Dark Tooth.

Giant old fashioned ice cream truck (40s or 50s think massive version of BEatingU) with busted wheels running on rims (or tracks?).
It's been dormant for years so it's all minging will busted windows, lights and is covered in moss, shit and battle scars (its been immersed in the sewers after all).
There's a giant head on top but that is all cracked as well and dirty but has a dim light in the eyes- it looks sort of organic and rotting.
There is no driver its became sentient and the head its self is alive.
maybe as its fighting the head 'skin' peels aways to reveal muscle/bone etc??)

Think of it as Christine on a really really bad day.

I think it would look quite cool.

And Dark Tooth will always be my favourite character/vehicle.

my brother did a pretty cool design for a Brimstone variant.
It was an army hauler converted to a military mobile chapel.

In our reality we saw Preacher as an ex soldier b4 he became an evangelist (just a way to explain why he's always seen with guns in TMB stills).

This truck would have had a huge metal crucifix on the top with a body pinned to it.

When the special was used the crucifix would flip forward and become a spike and launch forward  on its pole. This would spear cars in front and then pound them back on forth on the ground.

An alternative would be a rear fire which would pivot the cross backwards and spear cars behind and slam then in front for combo ops.

Just one of our many daft ideas

I've made up a couple ideas when I was bored.

A Geo or Chevy (take your pic) with a missle that hits you, then makes it so every weapon can track you down.  Name: Tracker.

Quickmix: Cement truck that can fire acidic cement.  Can hurt opponents, and also slows them down temporarily.

Drifter:  Escaped convict in a stolen fast car with a missle pack in the back.  The car was used to win drift races in the past.


I also thought that might be a cool feature, allowing the cars to drift around turns.

I actually have a sketch book I started yrs ago that has some TMB-inspired characters in it (in the fact that they were mental patients.. I even came up with legit diagnosis' and treatments), but only a couple had cars to go with them

one was a surgeon-gone-crazy called Dr. Giggles (yea, I ripped off the name.. I never came up with an ironic-sounding last name for him) who drives a stolen ambulance (box truck, not the old-skool station wagon). he wears green scrubs, has black spiked hair and all-black eyes.. and is always smiling, even when he's in pain. I never really came up with a legit special, just something stupid where he fires off a cluster of needles/syringes filled with gas, then you fire off a missle to detonate them

I also came up with an old voodoo priest from Baton Rouge, who was attacked by a mob of Christians and they sewn his mouth and eyes shut, then had him locked away for being a witch doctor. he drives an old rusted pick-up, but I hadnt come up with a special for it yet

I been contemplating the big rig wrecker but hadnt come up with a driver yet..

How about Dr Hatch?

No face didn't kill him after all merely maimed him (same injuries but with the glove).

Drives a 70's style ambulance with surgical saw blades that attack similar to Intruder off rogue Trip.

Maybe call it Spin Doctor?

YES!!! thats fucking awesome LOL!! make him the doctor that fucked over No Face? sounds VERY interesting, and makes for a Saw-style intertwined storyline.. much like the way they intermingled in the original TM

as far as the witch doctor, I was thinking something like Beezwax's Dodge Stag from V8, but without the camper

oh yea, I forgot you mentioned the BeatingU truck from Jeepers Creepers.. they filmed that movie on the same backroad that my high skool is on. they rerouted our buses for 6 months while they were filming, and then it was done, they brought the cast over to the skool during the lunch periods so everyone could meet -n- greet. I got a pic with Justin Long from before he was famous LOL!! and the guy who played the Creeper is a really cool guy.. strait-up metalhead guy with sleeved arms. and they gave everyone in the skool a free admin ticket to go see the movie.. which was funny 'cause beign that we all knew the road, we could see the same trees over and over from where they would drive the length of the road, turn around, and run it again. kinda interesting in a way..
that, and one my good friends is buddies with the guy who made all the prosthetic bodies down in the church cellar. he makes the paper every yr 'cause he turns his property into a giant haunted house, so he fit the job pretty well

yea, it was kinda cool. 99% of the property where the road is that they filmed on is farmland owned by a single family... well part of the deal they had in place was the land owner would get one of the Impalas and the creeper truck for his personal car collection, license plate and all. well he did and parked it in an open carport thats visible from the road. well me and a few friends caught a glimpse of the truck and decided to hop the fence and check it out up close... it had a crated Chevy LS2 with an Eaton supercharger on it (hence the whistling you hear when the camera is close to the engine bay of the truck)... he parted the whole truck out on eBay from what I heard, 'cause the truck hasnt been in that carport in YRS.. the only thing there now is a 60's Mercedes E-class wagon

I would have loved to have been near that set- if just to meet the creeper and see the truck up close.

I've always loved that vehicle and to me it's got as much charisma as other famous 'evil' movie cars like Christine, the Duel truck and The Car.

Really good stuff

Character: Wheelman
Car: Small pickup truck (like a Ranger or S-10
Driver: Alex Lambert
Age: 18
History: Alex grew up in a normal family.  At the age of 16 they bought him a small pickup truck.  It was perfect for the area they lived in.  They resided in the mountainous areas of the nortwestern United States.  The same night they bought the truck used, they were murdered.  The police thought it was just a random incident.  Alex knew better.  He knew his parents were murdered.  Now, two years later, Alex has covered virtually all of the continental United States and even Alaska and still no sign of the killer.  Alex is getting impatient for revenge.

Oh lordy..

You know, train track treads could be a cool feature. Imagine crawler treads on modern day construction vehicles like a backhoe, only with wooden slats and some linked iron bars instead. Then you keep the actual train body, maybe a cooler looking model than some red and green locomotive and add some armor and firepower.

Viola!

Actually, a locomotive has been thought of before. I know I mentioned it a couple of times here and there over the years. I think it'd be a great idea as a boss charactor/unlockable.

I never thought of it being on monster tires. That seems pretty cool but, tank treads like Warty would probably suit better. Sounds more feasable.  

Either way, pretty bad ass.

Post by Michael on 10/25/09 at 17:06:46
Eh?

I knew about the train idea being tossed around. I though I'd try to come up with some ideas for it too.

But what gets me is the monster tires. If that is an idea you have/had, then it sounds pretty cool now that I think about it. But if that's what you pictured when reading my post, then I don't know where I went wrong.

Crawler treads(like this), like on a tank (better example) on a train. Only instead of the modern day assembly, it's essentially like old fashion train track - iron track with wooden slats - only the iron track is several peices of linked iron, allowing it to circle around the wheels and gears, with the wooden slats used for traction.

Does that make more sense? It would help if I knew the actual names of some of the parts.

I just saw big tires as a suggestion a few replies back. I always thought of it being on tank treads myself personally. I think it'd look alot cooler.

If it could be pulled off using tires and look cool, use it. It'd be a variant of TM2 Minion, but as a locomotive.

Hell yea I got what you mean. I can't draw stick figures to save my life but, I see how it should look in my head. It'd be really bad ass to have a train locomotive on tank treads tearing ass through the TM world.

I mean imagine the same shape and form of tank treads, same construction style, only instead it looks like train tracks are circling around the wheels and gears instead of treads.

I can draw, I'll try and illustrate it.

wait, I think I got it....  you wanna use a locomotive engine, with its NORMAL wheels, but instead of using tank treads, you basically wanna use train tracks for treads.. so essentially, the function on the train is the same, but its like having tracks everywhere you go

right?

The iron rails would instead be a series of links, with wooden slats spacing and securing them.

that sounds like a kick ass idea... but I guarantee some hick in the mountains of West Virginia has already done it and thats what get him to work at the lumber yard everyday

they got these things called Mad Traxx you can buy.. they have them for almost any truck/SUV you can think of.. Tahoes, Suburbans, Silverados, F-series trucks, Broncos, etc. what they are, are mini-treads you can buy, one for each hub, and they replaces your wheels/tires with treads. I've seen videos of basic SUVs and truck with minor lift modifications use these and scale near vertical inclines, snowslopes, mud slopes... and it didnt even look like they were having any difficulty at all. they even showed a Jeep Wrangler with an 8" lift running thru 7' snow like it wasnt even there

Actually, a locomotive has been thought of before. I know I mentioned it a couple of times here and there over the years. I think it'd be a great idea as a boss charactor/unlockable.

I never thought of it being on monster tires. That seems pretty cool but, tank treads like Warty would probably suit better. Sounds more feasable.  

Either way, pretty bad ass.

You know how tractortrialers have the double wheels,thats what rialspike would have(exept on eight!)

The Cement Mixer "Slurry" is a witty idea.

Tossing cement to freeze its opponent, then using Giant saw blades on it is clever.

What kinda SP? Good damn question. It has been something I have been wondering for a bit since the idea has been tossed around. Mo problem with ideas. I'm amazed I could actually come up with something.

A super sonic air horn that rips opponents apart is kinda cheezy to me. It's an meh kinda idea. The ramming SP has been beaten to death. Punpunpunpunpun.

The only original idea that I could think of considering the name of "Railspike" would be a projectile weapon like a rail's spike, or a multi-projectile weapon of rails themselves. 3 at a time maybe?

Another one could be like a corrosive smoke that comes out of the exhaust but, that comes from the top soooo.......I dunno. Throw it around bitches!  :D

Ramming seems to make more sense considering he's a fucking locamotive though couldn't he shoot the rails at people like a shiskibob(fucked that word up so bad!) and get them stuck in the ground then ram em while there stuck.(freddy vs. jason , war of monsters) :o

Long time no see, Mr. Magnum, Mr. Mortimer and Every TMA member.
If you don't remember me, I was the man who wrote the "TM: Dream GP" on old TMA Site.
So I'm interested in this topic...make a character and show it off??
hmmm......Ok, I got my Character.
Name is Same "Outlaw" and Squad Car, but it has new story.

Driver Name: Eliot Parker
Car Description: 70's Style Ford Mustang Boss Police Car. Red and blue Police signal was removed, Gatling Gun Mounted on right side of car and Spike shooter mounted on front grill.
Special Weapon:Spike bomb. When spike hits to opponent, Electrocute the opponent for while. Then, after 5 seconds, it explode and give pretty good damage!
Story: Eliot is the Cop of LAPD, and he had the dark past. His family and girlfriend was killed by the serial killer when he was the rookie of squad.  Recently, he found that killer was the clown on the Ice Cream Truck....Sweet Tooth. He attend the contest to kill Him, so as Calypso, who targeted as FBI's most wanted list......

That is the story of New Outlaw. I can't decide should he end up by twisted end or happy end....:(
Anyway that's all my post.

Post by Archminion on 12/04/09 at 09:59:10
good fic.

My idea for Outlaw wa s bit similar, and it slightly crossed over with RK.

It was 'Mr' Roberts (fired from LAPD)

Drives an old 70's squad car. He was fired from his job for beating a guy to near death (the guy had run over and killed his young son and was in the tourney as well if the fic had worked out, Roberts would have had to make a moral decision in the end, also he knew calypso personally)

Anyway, Roberts was now an alco bum who drove an ex- cop car which was all busted up and such. (straight from the junkyard)

I started the fic but didn't like the way it was going.

I always liked the idea of taking an Outlaw character out of his element like they did with Black.

I hope they try something like this in the future.

i made like a sorta kinda sweet tooth remake.  he keeps the orignal square body from 2/1, the head on top is based on the head on the cover of black, only the eyes are redder and the teeth are more mangled. the whole head is covered in flames.  the front and side door windows are broken, and he has a spiked bumper like darktooth. his tires are replaced with tank treads, and are lined with spikes. cool, huh>?

Name/Driver: Lord Dread Wind
Vehicle: purple tornado chasing semi with yellow lighting bolts
Special: tornado siren flips out roof, then when it goes off a tornado comes down and lifts up Dread Wind, enabling you to stear the tornado.
Story: Dread Wind was a tornado chaser who got stuck in the wrong place at the wrong time. His truck was scattered around, and he was face down in a ditch, after getting up he felt like something was missing and wrong! He some how has the ability to control twisters too. Drifting in and out off conciousness he sees flash backs of who he was,he calls himself Dread Wind in his "world".Thats about all he knows, some what insane, and some what longing for an answer he hopes to win this contest he found to get his true identity.

Characters with weather powers, lol. It's definitely creative, but to be honest it's a LITTLE corny, and when I capitalize little I really mean little. In a game like TMB, specials like that wouldn't really fit in. But the story and cars themselves aren't bad at all..

How about Dr Hatch?

No face didn't kill him after all merely maimed him (same injuries but with the glove).

Drives a 70's style ambulance with surgical saw blades that attack similar to Intruder off rogue Trip.

Maybe call it Spin Doctor?

HA! I love the name? I guess if he survived, his face would be pretty fucked up. I do like the idea of an ambulance in a tm game anyway. It fits the early twisted metal trend of having vehicles that you don't see everyday, but are still recognizable to the average guy. (Besides axel, of course. I still have no idea how the hell they thought of him, considering how normal all the other contestants' cars were.)

As far as Axel is concerned, I do vaguely remember hearing about the idea of the first conceptual Segway around the time TM2 came out.  It's possible SingleTrac had heard of the idea and put a dude inside massive tires?  

I really like the Train/Tracks idea.  I'm photoshopping as we speak!  For  a special for the Train I'm thinking either a massive scale shotgun type weapon that fires coal out the front like a shotgun fires buckshot only the coals end up on fire and get embedded into the target. OR the front has a massive steam cannon that boils everything in it's wake and maybe the water messes with the vehicles electronic functions (see my take on Weapon Physics in the Adding Physics to TM post).

Car name: Cruise Control
Vehicle: modified PT Cruiser
Name: Kelly Donaldson
Description: Kelly used to be a flight attendent.  She would fly around for her job.  But, she also had another job.  Her second job was a gun for hire.  She used her flight attendent job to mask her murders.  She was excellent at both jobs.

One day, she recieved a large contract for a leader of a third world country.  On the flight there, someone blew up the plane.  The plane went down, and Kelly was one of the three to survive.  Now, she wants to find out who set the explosive and who caused her to miss the hit of her lifetime.

Vehicle Description:  Kelly always drove a PT Cruiser.  After finding out about the Twisted Metal competition, she scoured the plane graveyard and found the plane that crashed with her in it.  She took parts from it to armor her car, and for a very special weapon.  Essentially, it's a giant metal spike that sits on the roof of the car.  When it's activated, it slams down and impales any car in front of her.  She then has limited control of it.  She can send it flying, slam it into a wall, or even keep it for armor.  It's her choice.  The downside is, any sudden moves will cause her to lose control of the car.

Has anyone played with the idea of a car with AI? I remember back in this thread I believe, that a couple people were talking about a robot and a smart car. What if the smart car was actually just.. smart?

Maybe it could have like a hologram projector that shot an image out of some manifestation - probably its creator - when it came time to interact. Then the story from there could take off like I had suggested earlier, something about seeking the destruction of its maker to prove itself superior, but Calypso of course twists it up, and destroys the car instead, since the creator was manifested inside of it.

Um... yeah..

I did that 3 years ago. I'm still the better artist. The new guy is just less lazy.



Mag should remember that.
I'll admit, I suck colouring with colored pencil. Will be doing my works on PC from now on.

NRG is just mad I didn't wanna draw his emo ass in a Cavalier. Will still do a comic version of him, as I now have a scanner. Get back to me homie, I still need a picture.

Anyway, back to my comics.

Driver Story: The Führer is one of the original Nazi experiments to develop the ultimate soldier and has been genetically modified to live forever.  However, The Führer was shunned by the Nazi heirarchy and wants Calypso to help grant his wish to go back in time to take his rightful place as the leader of the motherland.

Special: The Dive Bomb - The vehicle leaps into the air (ALA Grasshopper) and drops a laser guided bomb on the contestants in range.  Will affect all contestants in the immediate area.

He must have gotten one right when they came to the U.S.  Our bullshit emissions regulations didn't allow for the importers of the Atoms to use the Supercharged Honda Civic Type R motors like in the REST OF THE FUCKING WORLD.  However something has happened and you can now order an Ariel Atom 2 from a company in Ohio with the S/C Civic Type R motor...  that fucking car is badass... they had an option for the Sky Turbo motor as well, but knowing first hand from working on the Sky's at work, they're fucking junk.  I'd never get an Atom with a GM Motor unless they shoehorned an LS Series motor in there.

the Sky, as in, the LSJ 2.0 Ecotec turbo? I dont know anybody who's had issues with those motors, and alot of my Cavalier friends have sold their Cavis and moved up to boosted Cobalts and turbo Sky's and Solstices.

The Cobalts are badass (totally different animal), the Solstice (although on paper the same cars as the skys) are much more reliable than the Sky's.  I work at a Cadillac dealership (Was a Saturn dealership up until 2 months ago) and we had constant issues with the Ion Redlines and the Sky Redlines.  Motor issues (mainly blown intercoolers and head issues), vert. top issues, trunk alignment issues, interior trim problems (the cupholders fuck up all the time), I can go on.  The Skys are junk dude.  If your friends have good ones, all the more power to them, I hope they don't run into the issues we see here in the N.E.

in all reality, the Solstice and SKY are the same car; just different face and ass features. the motors, electronics, structure is all the same. just like how the Cavalier and the Pontiac Sunfire is the same car... I've debated doing a Sunfire front end swap on my car, but I just scored a set of Toyota Cavalier fenders (yes, I said Toyota Cavalier.. it happened), so I'm sticking with my front

in fact, the Cobalt, ION, SKY, Solstice.. all share the same engine - the LSJ Ecotec. I dont see why one would have issues and the others wouldnt

Saturns were the last on the line of the parts and did have different distributors compared to the "premier" brands (Chevy, Pontiac).  That's why for the most part the Saturns in their intirety have been cheaper than the others.  They have cheaper parts.  You are correct about them being the same in the respect that the do cross platform many parts between the brands, but for some reason the Saturns shit out more than the others.  I've talked to a few people from Hurd Chevrolet and Fiore Pontiac around here, all within 3 miles from my dealership, and they have maybe MAYBE 1/4 of the horror shows we have at the saturn dealership.  I wish I knew why that was, but I would def take a Cobalt no problem.  

I knew Toyota and Chevy did business for a while.  A friend of mine way back had Toyota taillights on his Cavi.  This happens all the time.  The 3.5L Saturn Vue's have Honda engines in them and the basis for the 2.2 Ectotec was a take on Honda's 2.2 F-Series engines.  I have heard through the grapevine from higher ups at GM that they had scored the engine blueprints to make the Ecotecs from Honda in exchange for a basis for a pick-up truck (the Ridgeline).  So Honda now had a Ridgeline (was originally a base for the avalanche, even some of the body lines are similar) and GM got the newer gen Ecotecs

I have a severe hatred for the Cobalt for the simple fact that they marked the death of the Cavalier, and the j-platform as a whole. pretty much, GM dropped a 25-yr staple in the front-drive compact run to make a cheaper, shittier car... that barely made it 5 yrs (according to sources, the Cobalt gets the axe very soon). and then GM wonders why they took a shit over the last few yrs... ugly cars, poor design...

the Honda F22 is a single cam motor with rear-mounted air intakes and front mounted exhaust. it is in no way similar to the dual cam Ecotec. the Ecotec was originally a Saab design that GM acquired when the bought the brand. Saab called it something different, but its the same motor that came in the Saab 9000 turbo

now, I do know that the VUE V6 used Honda motors... dont know why, but fuck it. I do see the similarities with the Ridgeline, but as far as I know, that has nothing to do with bought motor blueprints

I considered Toyota tails for my car, but figured why? I have carbon-fiber tails, that will look good when I get a carbon-fiber trunk lid. I'll do Toyo tails when I get my 4dr Z24

lol, I heard all that shit from a higher up from GM himself, never said it was set in stone as I had an F22A3 in my Honda Accord before I ripped it out and went H22 Vtec.  I thought he was full of shit but maybe they used the block as a base or took some fuel delivery ideas and whatnot as well as some other guidelines to building a reliable engine as Honda motors have always been good. IDK and IDC lol.  Saab went down the shitter since GM bought them...hell everything goes down the shitter when GM is involved exceot for Chevy/Pontiac.  I have liked the Cobalt SS design, looks, performance, but I think the non-ss versions are hideous.

I think all the gripe GM has gotten over the yrs is completely unfounded... every GM I've owned, and thats alot, has been very good to me. it was the 2 Hondas that were the piles of shit for me, so go figure

if you like the Saab 9000 Turbo, that was your first introduction to the Ecotec.. thats where GM got the plans for it from, just GM did alot of R&D to improve on it

aside from GM, I love European cars.. mainly VW and BMW. one day, I'd like to own an E46 M3 and an 'o5 Volkswagen Jetta GLi with the 6spd manual, Recaro seats, Reiger lip kit and 18" BBS wheels. in Blue Lagoon :)

if you like european cars, there's a show on BBC called 'Top Gear'. I fucking love this show... 3 hilarious English guys who review a bad ass car then put it through its paces... then do something else fun in the middle of the show. my favorite episode was when the host test drove the one-of-a-kind Volkswagen GTi W12 Shogun.. which is the Audi 12-cylinder stuffed into the hatch of a Mk5 GTi, mounted to a Lambo sub-frame, the body is widened by 6".. and that fucker is BAD. Youtube that episode if anything...

haha, I've been watching Top Gear for about 5 years now, maybe longer.  My favorite episode is where Clarkson test drives the Koenigsegg CCX.  As far as the regular tests they do, I liked the one they did a race to the North Pole betwee, Clarkson and May in the Toyota Hilux (Badass pickup truck BTW), and Hammond on the dog sled... you gotta check that one out.

As far as european cars, I've always loved euro cars. I'd love to get a 65-67 Beetle and Volksrod it.  I'm not a big fan of the newer BMWs though, I have to admit, the last body style I really liked was in the early 2000s, i.e. - 2002 M5 (one of my favs of all).  I do love my "Mini M3" that I have now, though, one fun as shit car to drive, lemme tell ya.

I think one of my favorite episodes was when they went on the hunt for the best driving road in the world and drove all over southern Europe.. one in a Lambo Gallardo Superleggra, one in a Porsche Carrera 911 GT3RS, and one in an Aston Martin dedicated race car... and the dude started hating the car after 3 days LOL. it was slower than the other 2 as well which was pretty sad

I want an early 50s VW Bug, slam it on half moon hubs and do a slanted chop top with 2-tone.. White Pearl and Kandy Apple Green

I dunno man, I'm torn on the new Rocco, I like the classic ones better... I don't like many of the newer cars at all really, not from any automaker.  Especially older euro cars, I love the vintage square cars.  Shit, the E30 BMWs like mine were called "flying bricks" for godssakes lol.  Don't get me wrong, I'd def. take a new Rocco if it was given to me, however if I was to spend money on one, I'd get a vintage one in a heartbeat.

However, eventhough I prefer the older style cars with more "personality" to them, this car is fucking sick...

Russian Iskander Missile Launcher
Car Name: Roulette
Driver Name: Mikhail
Bio: Mikhail is a neo-soviet lunatic who wants to take over the world and has an unexplained revengeful rage toward Calypso. Don't let his fake thick accent foul you. Mikhail was originally called Michael Mason and was born in the United States. He insist that he was born in Russia and is twenty years older then his actual age. He was obsessed with military combat as a child and loved playing war general. His military obsession was rooted from his father, Commander Frank Mason. Frank Mason vanished without any leads on Christmas Eve of 2005. At age 10 Michael suffered from a freak accident while playing with explosives. Due to his disfigurement Michael died during the accident and Mikhail was born.  Michael was silent until 8 years later when he ran away from home and became obsessed with the Russian military and a plot to kill Calypso.

Austin Armoured Car

Car Name: Gemini
Driver Name: Nakia & Stalina
Bio: Russian conjoined twin sisters who want to be separated. Due to the cost and risk of the surgery they feel they have better chances risking their lives in the Twisted Metal tournament then under the knife of a stranger.  They acquired their car from their deceased Grandfather who was also was a conjoined twin. Sadly during World War I he lost his beloved brother to a land mine.

I don't much see the conjoined twin thing working out - especially conjoined brothers drafted into a war... - but that was definately a good thought.

I like the Iskander look and believe it would fit in neatly. Your name choice is clever, too (as well as for the conjoints).

Just my two cents here, but I think it would be cool to see "Mikhail" go about with the story you gave him, but I think it would be even cooler, since you made him rival Calypso, if he even trumps him into believing that he's a loony who thinks he's from Russia, and in his end cutscene we find out that it was all true.

On the flipside, how would you go about getting the story across that he's crazy and made up his own backstory? So maybe my ideas on it wouldn't work..

The brother's are both dead. One of them.. the one who lived had a son.. who had 2 daughters who turned out to be conjoined. The Grandfather left the daughter's his ride from WWI.  He doesn't have anything to do with the story except giving them the ride.  The sister's planned to have themselves separated as their wish for Calypso. They feel it's more a of risk to go under the knife then compete in the tournament.

He is actually Warthog from TM:SB. (Kid Calypso tricks Warthog with explosives.. Warthog ends up blowing himself up.)
His father is also Warthog from TM1.
The character doesn't know his father competed in the same tournament from TM1 back in 2005. Meaning this tournament would take place in 2012-2015?

In the ending..


A heavily military fatigues dressed man gets out of his towering vehicle. Heavy footsteps in the dirt are heard.

"Congratulations Mikhail, or is it Michael Mason?" Calypso utters with a laugh.

It's silent. Roulette's headlights silhouette Mikhail in the fog.

Mikhail walks forward.

Calypso speaks - "What is your wi-"

Mikhail rushes forward with a blade.

A guard intervenes.

But it is too late, Mikhail rushes too close toward Calypso.

Calypso has him killed on the spot before he reaches him.. a bullet in the head.

"Noooo!" The guard yells and catches Mikhail's body.

Calypso sits up from his throne of car parts.
"Who are you?" Calypso demands.
"I'm Commander Frank Mason" The guard replies.
Calypso gets off his throne and walks close to Frank.
Frank is in tears.

"I know how it feels to lose a child" Calypso utters calmly in a sad voice. (Krista's face flashes up on the screen and a laugh can be heard echoing faintly.)

"Please.. Calypso.. please give me back my only son!" Frank yells while holding his lifeless son's body in his arms.

"Hmmmm" Calypso grins.
"Because of your Son's death I reward you with his wish. He probably wouldn't have made it here if it wasn't for you anyway.." Calypso grins again.

"Please.. Please bring my son back to life!"
"Your wish.. is granted.."
A flash erupts in the sky.. Calypso is hit by a bolt of lightning and energy flows into the body of Michael Mason.
A pause.. and Michael's eyes open.
"Father?" Michael hugs Frank.

Michael looks over his father's shoulder..
"You!! you tricked me! Calypso!" Michael points and gets up to his feet.
Calypso raises a brow.
"You should thank me Michael, I gave you your life back." Calypso
"Thank you?! you ruined my life!" Michael yells at him.
"What are you talking about Michael?" Frank interrupts.
"He did this to me! he tricked me!" Michael stands to his feet.
Frank grabs on to his son.
The view is shown through Michael's eyes.
A skinny boy is shown standing next to Calypso.. Michael is looking right at him. The boy starts to step backwards and then turns and runs inside of a broken car behind Calypso's feet. "I'll get you Calypso!" Michael yells insanely.
Michael pushes his father off of him.. and still holding his knife he charges forward toward Calypso.
"Die!!"
*BANG!!* Michael falls backward to the floor.
Again.. he is shot in the head.
"Noooo!!!" Frank yells.
"You should control your son Frank." Calypso laughs.
"I know I can't get him back by fighting you.. I've seen too many who have tried." Frank is talking to himself with his son in his arms once again.

"I'll have to win him back.." Frank looks over toward Roulette..

Fades to black.

This was never any question. I understood everything perfectly fine. Lorewise, I can't see anything backing a story about conjoined twins joining the army. And at the same time, while it is a story that fits well into the TM universe, I don't see a conjoined character duo working. But hey, I'm not the one that decides.

I think it would be a quite badass vehicle/cool variant of Axel.  I hated Axel in each game, I don't know why, but I just couldn't stand him as a character (esp. the infinite "Axel Power Supernova" the CPU used in TM2).

Oh SNAP! Axel in a Minensucher! Shit! Add some firepower to him and he'd rape everything in sight. But wait. how is that gonna fit with the current Axel? You;d have to replace the guy with the body of the vehicle, and then it wouldn't be like the 'traditional Axel' anymore.
But honestly, I have no idea how the hell Axel came to be. I read his story, and seriously, a bear driving a tractor while talking on his cell phone with Batman makes more sense than that idea.

aside from the Physics thread I started last month, I also have an idea for a thread where the possibility of TM ever being able to happen is discussed.. using physics and mechanics, obviously

Axel is impossible, plain and simple. where his arms enter the center hub, there would have to be some kinda stationary mount where his hands would be bound to, and I cant think of a way off-hand where thats possible

Exactly. Axelo get so complicated in TM. He's got a little funk to him, and just as a character, his story gets sketchy. I feelo weird seeing his little feet drag around when he's driving around. He must be a masochist.

Actually, it's not that hard to think up... His arms could go into a center "axle" type assembly that stays stationary almost EXACTLY like the commuter Segway.

See where your feet go on a segway?  Obviously that doesn't rotate, otherwise you'd never be able to stand on it.  That platform that we would be standing on could potentially be the fixture where axle's arms enter the rig.

Axel. Compared with a Segway. :o Hell, it's not even midnight.
I need to stop dropping acid.

But what about his feet? Perhaps he can make the wheels a tad bit bigger so his feet wouldn't drag on the floor like I see in the game. I'm like, 'Shit man! That makes razor burn look like nothing!' With his feet draggin around, he just reminds me of mop or those little dogs that cling to vacuums.

those tires would have to be huuuuge, for one

and 2, what about a rotating axle? or is there a center diff? essentially, for this to work, you'd need a way oversized hub, huge tires, and it'd have to use a center diff, which was mounted head-level with him, possibly across his shoulders

BY HITLER'S PANTIES! That's true! Shit! I can't beleive I forgot about that. Axel's vehicle does need an 'axel'. I don't ever remember him even having an axel in the TM games. He was just like defying gravity there. O.o  Crazy... I know the axel's gotta go where his hands are, so that's got to go somewhere across his shoulders... but then the tires will have to be at least a bit greater than the length between his shoulders and his feet so his feet don't drag....

NO! I didn't just leave a physics class to do more math!
Axel is a living contradiction!

no need for an "axle" connecting the two huge tires.  a gyroscope in each wheel is all you'd need, as well as an engine to power the inner hub which would rotate the tire.  Check out websites about monowheels, especially this one (Good Quality Pics and Videos).





http://redmaxmonowheel.co.uk/mono.html

If you took 2 monowheels and strung up a person in between them, it would essentially be Axel.  IIRC Black was the only iteration of Axel where his feet were not connected to a base.  The Axel's with the base were definitely more "Oversized Segway" and the Axel from Black is more of a "Dual - Monowheel" setup.  I can definitely forsee it happening if someone had the time and money to make one.

Yes you do need an axel! If there's a gyroscope in each wheel, the two wheels still need to be linked together. You can't have two wheels rotating individually. And what about Axel? He ain't just gonna float there and defy gravity. There's gotta be a connection between the two wheels.

Dood! You are a genius! Does this stuff come to you in your sleep? I can't wait to read the in-depth bio's and stories that you might have for each car/ driver. I'm so excited over your next fanfic. I bet it's gonna be EPIC!
And there's TWO drivers in some of the cars! No shit! Fukk! That's as tight as a cinnamon roll buy one get one free! I love you. You are the SHIT!

my next fic is in progress in the Fanfics wall as we speak. go check it out :)

yea, some cars have a driver and a co-pilot/gunman. Warthog and Thumper both have 2. instead of the traditional 12 cars, I have 14.. so keeping track of who's who is a lil hard since I just woke up and have MW2 on my mind

Grey Goose is something that I've had cooked up for yrs now. originally, I thought up a skool bus.. this was back in '95, '96 when the original TM came out. I was playing the game and thought to myself that a skool bus would fit right in. well here comes Vigilante8.. and I knew I was right. so my next thought was a prison bus. well lo and behold, here comes V8: Second Offense. but by then, I had already drawn up a concept that even today, is still different than V8's prison bus. the name was inspired by a Snoop song from back in the day called 'Murder Was The Case'.. my friends thought they were gangster  ::)

so there you have it. the missile truck and the race car were newer ideas of mine that kinda just came to me... except for the license plates. I came up with those at work last week LOL. but for you V8 fans, the new fic has a cameo or 2... keep your eyes peeled and see if you find them

oh, and thanks for the kind words. much appreciated

I could never get into V8, althought I do like the idea of a school bus, especialy seeing as how now I work on them daily.  My fav. bus was in Resident Evil Apocalypse. I believe in a part of the movie it's got a gun turret on the top. This one also has a type of shredder caps like I put on YJ only a different style.

V8 was def loads of fun. I like how it was car combat, but had a different vibe to it... the car dynamics, the features..

I've been trying to toy with a couple profiles I thought up... Give them the Twisted Metal makeover like I did with my "Overkill" character.

Here's what I got:

An orphan, left to survive in the thicket.
Head hunter/bounty hunter - done RIGHT.
Government drug testing subject.
Kidnapped and trained assassin - think "Ninja Warrior" - or some other kind of operative.

And without trying to sound redundant, a human/creature hybrid. I was also playing with the idea of an angel, but how stupid does that sound?

Also had some relations for the characters...

The headhunter would clash fairly well with Severed Sam, for obvious reasons. I was considering making a story where Severed Sam was in it to get back at the hunter, and the hunter was in it to finish the job.

And the Assassin, the car of which I would name Rogue, would be a black sports car to rival Crimson Fury. The only idea for a story for him so far is that he's on a mission to kill Calypso. Nothing too original there yet.

I made a character named Overkill, exept he is a big tanker truck with 2 flamethrowers on the roof. I might make a final design for him tonight.

I really don't think that ESP is trying to cut anybodys nuts off. One has to consider that any new fledgeling company has got to be extremely careful. What is lost to a lot of people is great minds think alike. If they let someone "officially post a concept, idea, or anything like that on their official site. Then is someone on thier team comes up with a simular idea and it gets put into the game, then lawsuits will abound. I truly beleive, keep in mind it's just my beleif that's one reason why so many creative companies keep so tight lipped about upcoming stuff. Just my two bannanas. :=8P

Name: Road Trip

Driver: Jack Darwin

Vehicle description: Dark blue pick up with camper on the back, front mounted picnic table and 2 canoes chained to the rear.

Special: "Bear Claw" Three trebladed missles home in on aponents, attach,then secondary rockets boost the car out of control(less powerful on larger vehicles) before detonating.

History: attacked by the one thing he loves the most, Nature. Brutilly mutilated his face is horrobly disfigured and his body full of scars. His normal life is gone and so to is his mind!


(forgot the Canoes on back)

Beginning
:: The camera cuts into a hospital room, a man lies in a bed rapped in bandages::

:Jack narrates.

I used to be a great man, a biologist studying the beauty of nature itself. Some of my findings where extraordinary, and gave me a great reputation.

:: Some memories of him and his work fade in and out, showing him looking at bugs and small mammals, testing there DNA on a  computer, etc…: :

I was even featured on the discovery channel! But, one day it was all gone literally torn away. Now I’m stuck paying huge hospital bills and overdue house payments while I sit in this bed, helpless. My funds were running low and my hopes were too until A man visited me one day.

:: Camera shows a clean cut man in a black suit and tie walk into the room. ::

He called himself Calypso, and told me all my problems would be solved if I joined his contest and… and won.

:: Jack is seen being escorted out of the hospital and dropped off at his home. He opens the garage door to reveal a bloodied truck with a few slash marks on it. Then the scene cuts to him going through his son’s belongings as he grabs a hockey mask and puts it over his disfigured face. Finally the scene cuts to him pealing out onto an on ramp that says “New York 5 miles”. Camera cuts to black::
Now…I can get my life together .

Middle
(Depending on the  how the fic goes Road Trip somehow gets knocked unconscious)

:Jack narrates

I was out cold, the memories of that day flashed before me. I am going camping in Washington with my wife. It was a beautiful brisk spring day, and I had just set up camp.

I went out to down the trial to marshes where I spotted some oil sludge washing up on the beach. That oil spill went all the way up to the North Pole and dipped down the west coast.

Minutes later I heard my wife scream, and I ran to the camps site; it was grotesque there was blood every wear I saw a huge grizzly bear ripping up her torso. It saw me and attacked… that bear jumped onto me and started slashing away. What saved me was a flare that fell out of one of our bags. I stuck it right up its throat and it ran away moaning.

I later found out that the oil contaminated there drinking water and they literally went mad, attacking ever thing, I guess I was lucky…
End

(Depending on  the fic he kills the last opponent)
Calypso narrates this time:

Jack had won  my contest, he road into my warehouse and asked me profusely for his prize.

He said” Please Calypso make that day never happen “.

::shows Calypso wave his arms and with a flash of lighting it had been done. The Camera cuts to Jack sleeping in his bed.  Waking up he feels himself checking if he’s alive.::

“My God Calypso you did it!”

::Then his wife comes into the room::

“Hi honey did you get a good sleep? I can’t wait for our trip coming up”
Jack: What trip?

Wife: To The Caribbean silly.

::The Camera cuts to black and a news paper spins into the shot.::
“Raged Mutated Sharks found in the Gulf”

::Camera cut to black and Twisted Metal Blitz Auto logo pops up playing “Everything’s goanna be alright” by Bob Marley(figured this song would go good since they’re going to the Caribbean)::

If they used any I'd be more honored then "that mother fucker, I'm goanna su yo ass" I think that any one of us here at TMA wouldbe honored to have The TM crew use our ideas.

but if I made it an RV it would be a rip off of that other guy from V8 2.
so I thought if I made a camper with some different things added on it I would be in the clear.

He'll probably never be in Twisted Metal anyways so stop whining. Nuf siad so don't bother even keep on bullshitting, its either you like it or you don't.

Ok these new guys are based of the other universe where Calypso is "good" All the characters are oposites of there normal counterparts. I'm not making Sweet tooth though, I can't ruin his great character by making him a happy, birthday clown.

Name: DarkSlam
Driver: Simon
Story: Simon is a pyrotechnic, he has been working  for the last 20 years at a deadend job, and he was fucking sick of it. One day at a blasting site he took comand of a frontloader and ran down 15 workers into a pulp. His mind is twisted beond hope and his thoughts are blacker than his truck!
Vehicle Description: Black frontloader with red tinted windows and headlights, its hard to tell if the windows just red or covered in blood...
Special: Impaler slam; spikes flip out of the bucket and impale the nearest vehicle, proceded by the bucket thrashed the poor thing to shreads...it doesn't always have to be a vehicle either...


Technically he's from the regular TM universe but what the hell...
Name: Involuntary (Mansluaghter)
Driver: Dr.Black
Story: Dr. Black is a architect who was trying to see over the construction of one of the biggest office buildings in New York City. But the workers where being sloppy and in a fit of rage Dr.Black tried to take control of a crane, and in the struggle knocked down a stack of 10 ton sewage pipes onto 3 workers. He was convicted of Involuntary Mansluaghter and was sentenced to 15 years in prison. He feels so guilty for killing those inocent workers he crys out at night in his cell, but tonight Calyspo's giving him a chance to take it back.
Vehicle description: A glossy white dumptruck with blue decals and his company name on the side.
Special: Avalanche, Flaming rocks fling out the back of the truck bed onto unexpecting victims.

Note: I made the U,N,and the T so close together it looks like theres no N and it bothers me...

Name: ArchMinion
Driver: Unknown
Story: This Angel was sent by God to kill Calypso, by winning the contest he can send him threw the gates of hell.
Vehicle Description: Glossy white SWAT tank with mine sweeper in the front.
Special: Three Beings, the tank shoots a cannon shell and three holy guided missles.

Not a bad idea, flipping the character personas. Archminion works the best, in my opinion. Slam was never really "good," I would say, so making him completely dark doesn't exactly fit, though it's not really an fun to make another neutral version of somebody. Darkslam isn't the most original name, but whatever. All of the construction characters' stories seem a little tired, as you've played with those kind of plots before, but I recognize that there aren't too many options. The artwork was very good, as usual.

yeah a "good" Mr.Slam was sort of confusing to me, so I thought why not make him darker. Involuntary is my favorite, and Archminions vehicle could be reworkered a little bit.

I have a few ideas myself, vehicles with specials. Haven't really made charactors for much of them but I'll put in what I have come up with, and of course what ive come up with needed tweaking(but left as is for now)

3 wheeled motorcycle- projectile swinging mace's- barbarian biker

Public Transit Bus-Ramming Speed with concrete baracade strapped to front of bus, delusional old city driver: trying to prove hes not crazy, but learns he is

Steam Roller- Obvious special, but chains harpoon out to catch vehicles, deranged but not crazy construction worker

70's Stock Car- dual dynomite loaded crossbows, dukes of hazzard like brothers

Modern Stock Car : Washed up Racer looking for second chance, or very horrible up and comer competing to prove hes a good racer

30's Coupe- projectile moonshine jugs set ablaze, wishing moonshining wasn't illegal, making something else they do as there legitimate job, a felony.

Snow Cat/Snow Tank-projectile ice spears, wishing for a world like an artic wasteland, which ends up killing off earths resources(and killing everyone).

A more original charactor Is Roland(aka Roller), Axel's brother. Their dad put him in tank tracks off of an old tractor on the farm. His wish is for their father to be bound to a machine, to feel the suffering they both have gone through.

I had 3 versions of Minion (all 3 based on a toy vehicle I've had)
1. Red 4 Wheeled Armored Vehicle(like a Tank), with a nuclear laser mounted to the top. driven by a vengeful military thief.
2. A desert camo painted armored vehicle(like a tank too), driven by three ex soldiers bent on revenge for being framed(by red minion driver).
3. A more regular military personal carrier tank painted with dark purple and charcoal, is a tactical team out to win to take out Calypso.

Also made a fighter jet painted like a bird called Raven that had a claw on it.

Stalker, an 70's funny car painted jet black with a reverse jet engine in it to BBQ cars infront of it or to spit fireballs.

BuckShot- an ATV hunting addition loaded with a wammy shell shot gun. Another configuration of the special was mounted crossbow.
Kane, a giant halftrax military hybrid truck that shot out a highly destructive energy ball from a strange looking inward mounted cannon.

I also had ideas for a few bosses, one being a heavily(or overly) armored tank, a battle ship, a different version of WarHawk or another fighter jet, and an apache helicopter.

Battlegrounds would have been
Seattle, Washington
Chicago, Illinois
Athens
Chernobyl, Ukraine
Piza, Italy
Hawaiian Islands
Brazil
Alamo, Texas
Tourist area of Orlando, Florida
Mount Rushmore
San Fransico, California
Planet X Excavation Site (a final battle ground).
All locations have something recognizable(space needles, roller coasters, towers and buildings, disasters, national monuments, etc).

One of my favorite ideas was a fight on a cargo ship in the Pacific Ocean on the way to Calypso's private island where you are heading to(if you win the cargo ship fight), however, the twist was you have to fight a battle ship as the final boss.

I currently have as 3 different vehicle ideas.
1. A desert style race truck
2. An armored up 89 Ford Truck(the one in my avator)
Both these trucks have a powerful homemade firework as the special.
and
3. A pick up truck with a plow, used as ramming speed or harpoons out and slams into other vehicles.
My reasons for entering would most likely be along the lines of saving my wife or family. One of the more happy endings, not ending in a crazy twist either.

Meant to say these would be my vehicles of choice.
Reason for the 89 ford is I can actually aquire one for dirt cheap. That and that model always had a dominating presence about it.

As for the fireworks special, they are illegal in Illinois, so i'd have to make my own(or drive to Wisconsin or Indiana).

Name: Orange Crush
Driver: Jerry
Vehicle: Orange bulldozer, with heavy armor ,and a car chained to the back.
Special: Capture Crush, the spikes on the side of the bulldover shoot out to grap a vehicle,then they retract in, pulling the oponent into the blade;finally the oponent is luanched back by blade via high pressure Hydraulics.
Story: Jerry is a highly respected radical environmental activist, he plans on ridding the world of those who have wronged the environment. Little does he know he's not really doing the environment any good entering Calypso's contest.

Fireball: I've always liked the idea of a bus, and I'm planning one now. I also like the 30s coupe, funny car, and axel's brother ideas.

Slam: Nice special idea. That bulldozer would probably be really painfully slow though.

Here are some ideas I've never quite been able to flesh out:

Scarecrow - an emaciated, deranged old farmer who stuffs his clothes with straw. He drives and ancient pickup from the fifties. I don't know why he enters

Drone - a man/machine hybrid who drives an early 90s civic hatchback. He's trying to find the scientist who party mechanized him to have him finish the job

Gold Rush - A crazy, failed miner driving an rv pickup hybrid, looking for some lost lode or something

Name: Waterlogged
Driver: Chuck P. Aaron
Vehicle description:  A Chinook helicopter that has been rotting in the ocean for the past 15 years, it’s covered in slime and undersea parasites.
Special: Down force, the helicopter targets the nearest opponent and hovers over them, and then the propellers accelerate to the speeds of a category 5 hurricane, flinging the opponent hundreds of yards away.
Story: 15 years ago Chuck was one of the finest helicopter pilots around. He flew threw the most dangerous missions and is a hero to many, but on a tragic stormy night he didn't return. Now 15 years later Mr. Aaron is back from the dead by an unknown force, and his downed heli is too! Some say he was brought back by the Bermuda triangle, others say military testing; but one thing is certain... all he wants is to see his family.

Side Note... His helmet is filled with water and his eyeball is flaoting around. Also I was thinking as a secondary special he could drop a crate full of weapons, for multipayer purposes since chinooks usually transport cargo.

Name: Rail spike (version 2)
Driver: Ted Dekermin
Vehicle: Diesel train truck hybrid
Special: Boost ram or rail gun (he literally shoots rails; it’s not that weird top secret military weapon)
Story: Ted hauls tons of freight across America each day. One trip he decides to bring his son with him oblivious that he was carrying millions in cargo that someone wanted; killing his son and leaving him for dead something snapped in Ted. He found Calypso's hide out a while back after unloading his cargo. Now he thought it was a good time to join that contest he runs. He stole a diesel train and put it on semi truck tires.


Side note...This is my second version of this guy, you should see how much my drawing abilities have improved. Also the story is the same I just copied and pasted it here, well I also fixed the shitty spelling too.

These are really good ideas, and they seem like they would be bosses, am I right? I really like the character and vehicle design for Waterlogged, the floating eyeballs is a nice touch. The helicopter may be a tad unfeasible, but meh. And I remember discussion from a while ago about a train thing. The new drawing is much improved

anybody can tell me, how to edit twisted metal 2 vehicle,
such : Sweet tooth edit into dark tooth,

pleassse answer,,. ;)

You could just use the Dark Tooth skin for ST.


Also, Shackleford, I like that Idea. I always wanted a tazer effect rather than a jump tazer thing. I just want the car to stay in its spot so I could ram rather than the car jumping in the air and ruining a chain.

I wouldn't knock the idea dude.
It gives the car a very real feeling like the driver lives in his truck and when he's gotta go then he just steps out of his truck while he's in the forest and does his business. You might think it's funny but I think it gives character to the drawing

Here's a character I made for the new Twisted Metal- but I highly doubt David Jaffe would be interested in using it, I mean I wouldn't mind seeing it in the new Twisted.

This vehicle has two specials just like all the other vehicles/characters- the first special is when you have the railroad wheels activated you would have the ability to ride across any type of railing throughout the levels while having access to all weapons including the turrent on the back- special two is the front spikes you can either release them as a homing projectile- or, you could save them for a high speed ram and once you have impaled your opponent you can either ram them into the nearest wall or you can launch them along with the spikes.

So would this character fit in with the other characters of Twisted Metal? And yes I know it's too clean looking for Twisted Metal- but this is just one concept piece I've been wanting to do.  ::)

Repoman

Driver - Jonathon "Repoman" Carter

Storyline - Jonathon Carter was a regular repo man.  He did his job, no matter how much the mark whined, begged, and bribed.  He was good at it, because he wasn't a very sympathetic person.  However, he eventually came upon the wrong kind of mark.  This person was in heavy debt, and he truly didn't have anything worth taking, because he had just been robbed.  So, the mark jokingly said, "Look, I'd give you my heart if it was worth anything."  So, Jonathon ripped it out of his chest, and he sold it on the black market for a hefty price.  Enthralled by the cash, and realizing how good it felt, Jonathon bought a set of surgery tools and began taking organs out of random passerby and selling them on the black market.  When the police caught up with them, he took at least three of them down before he got captured.  He was abruptly sent to Blackfield Asylum, to wait out his sentence and hopefully get help.  Until one day, he had a visitor...

Vehicle - Sleek sports car - good speed, great acceleration, weak armor
This sports car belongs to one of the past marks of Jonathon.  After the weasel bought another one with a loan, the Repoman decided it was time to take something that couldn't simply be bought back.  The former owner's bloodstains are still on the seat, after having his spine ripped out.

Special - Repossession - Giant scalpel comes out from the hood and stabs at a car in front of it.  For a critical hit, the blade will also reposes a weapon, turbo, or health, depending on what the player needs most.
Alternatively, the scalpel can also be launched straight forward for a devastating ranged attack.



It's not great, but I'm still learning Photoshop.

Ok guys, it's time. It's been over a year and half since I started writing this fanfic, and I've finally got it finished as of tonight. That said, here are the driver profiles for the characters I've created. There are a lot, when you combine new drivers, and new vehicles.. some being completely new from the ground up. Hope you guys dig it.


- car: Hammerhead
- make: Jeep Wrangler
- driver/tribe: Chief Iron Sky/Western Cheyenne
- special: Beneath My Wheels (crush); Dead Eye (rear-mounted bow and arrow)
- license: RED SKN
- story: The last Twisted Metal tournament before the events of 2012 took place in the midwest. Spilling outside the confines of Midtown, several combatants, including Sweettooth, made their way into a Cheyenne indian village tucked down into a small valley. The tribe's chief, known at the time as Rushing River, was out on a food hunt with his son. The two split up, agreeing to meet back at the village before nightfall. The chief was approaching the village when the Twisted Metal contestants burst in, destroying everything in their paths. Their only defense was a mounted machine gun on a small hill overlooking the village. The chief jumped on the gun, firing on the intruders. They eventually fled, but left the village in ruins. Every man, woman, and child there was killed, including the chief's wife and infant daughter. His son came upon the tattered village soon after, but was killed by the chief in a confused, blind rage. He eventually headed west, receiving information about what happened; a vehicular combat tournament hosted every Christmas. And last year's winner? A clown in an ice cream truck called Sweettooth. The chief ended up in possession of an old Jeep Wrangler, which he had outfitted with army surplus artillery in preparation for next year's tournament. His use of modern weaponry earned him the nickname "Iron Sky" amongst his neighboring villages, because the locals say that when the chief is enraged, it "rains bullets".



- car: Medusa
- make: Pontiac Sunfire GT
- driver/tribe: Lisa Kim/PMS tribe (Pandora's Mighty Slayers)
- special: Stone Cold Stare (nitrogen deep freeze, makes metal brittle)
- license: TRN2STN
- story: Lisa Kim was the ugly duckling in high school. Very unpopular, very neglected. Her mother died when she was young, so it was just her and dad. When she got her license at 16, he handed down to her his Pontiac Sunfire GT in the hopes that'd it could be their project car together. Being that her only friends were boys from the neighborhood, she was into tomboy-ish things, cars being one of them, so she took to her new car like a fish to water. While attending a stop for Hot Import Nights in San Diego, she was approached by a modeling recruiter who saw Lisa Kim as a diamond in the rough. Within a year, she was gracing the cover of every car rag on the stands.. Super Street, Modified, Import Tuner... and with that came deals and endorsements from tuner companies around the globe. She took some time off of modeling to get her racing license, and put her now-heavily modified Sunfire on the track. A natural talent, her and her car were sent all over the world to compete. She was in Germany when the war started, and she has yet to hear if her father survived. Her tribe, Pandora's Mighty Slayers, is a play on the Greek legend of Pandora, and an all-mighty, all-women army.



- car: Doc Rukus
- make: Buick Regal
- driver/tribe: Chevez Guerra/ El Locos
- special: Sonic Boom (shockwave with EMP effects)
- license: 2LOW4U
- story: A group of hispanic gangbangers from el barrio trying to gain power and security.



- car: Roadkill
- make: Pontiac GTO "The Judge"
- driver/tribe: Marcus Kane/The Nomads
- special: Schrapnel Cannon (a cannon that fires scraps of junk metal)
- license: RUST-E
- story: Marcus was working at a shop in San Antonio when the bombs hit. He went underground, where he stayed for over a year. He finally emerged, hopped in his car, and traveled anywhere the roads took him. He came across small groups of people who also bunkered underground, now lost. They banded together, becoming known to other groups as The Nomads, because they had no place to call home. They stuck to the roads, scavenging whatever they could. One day, Marcus is approached by Calypso. He says he wants him to play a little game, and that if he won, he could have whatever his heart desired...



- car: Freekshow
- make: Ford Ambulance
- driver/tribe: Kabal/The Sideshow
- special: Oxygen Bomb (oxygen tanks strapped with C4)
- license: OMG WTF
- story: Kabal was a prize fighter who was fortunate enough to not be killed in the blast. However, he was horribly disfigured and his lungs began to deteriorate. He is required to wear a respirator almost all the time. He was eventually picked up by a traveling circus, and is displayed in the sideshow. Turns out the ringmaster is an old friend of Calypso's..



- car: Tinman
- make: Chevy Camaro SS twin turbo
- driver: Tinman
- special: Optic Laser (white-hot laser emitting from under the hood)
- license: AGNT S
- story: Tinman has no tribal affiliation, and no recordable past. His human body has been all but destroyed, most of it replaced with cybernetics. His heart runs on a rechargable power supply that he keeps filled using his car; there are two prongs in the gas pedal, and two holes in his right foot that plug in, as well as a prong in the steering wheel and a prong in the shifter knob. When he is plugged in, he doesn't even have to drive. The car reads his cerebral inputs, essentially driving the car with his mind. If Tinman dies, the car is useless.

- car: Mr. Slam
- make: Caterpillar front end loader with modified claw bucket
- driver/tribe: Simon Whittlebone Jr./ The Builder's Union
- special: grappling hook/claw slam (hook reels enemy into claw)
- license: GET SLMD
- story: Simon Whittlebone Jr. is the son of the original Mr. Slam driver of the same name. He has entered the contest to finish what his father started with Whittlebone Tower.

Of course, there are more people in it, but I didn't post profiles because it's the usual crowd.. Sweets, Grimm, Darkside.. Cage is in it, and with his wagon on treads, but I removed the Warthog name and went with White Knight. And there are throwbacks and little bits added in to make you go, 'oh snap!'..

A T-Rex would be a really cool idea for Pit Viper. I mean on one hand, it looks like a snake. And on the other hand, it's not built for jumping (something Grasshopper would require).

So you think is better for pit viper a t-rex then for grasshoper...i agree and i wonder what could be the specials weapons (primary special and alt.special because in tmps3...well if you have play tmps3;you know what i talking) and stats (speed,armor,special)

I GOT THE PERFECT VEHICLE FRESH OUT OF 989 STUDIOS!!! =D

VEHICLE: BUZZSAW - an ugly clusterfuck with buzz saws attach to it
DRIVER: Carl Lumberjack
Height: 6'4''
Weight: 240lbs
Special weapons: Buzz Saws/Cross Bow with explosive tip
Wish: to put an end to hippie protesters trying to save the Forrest


I also think the idea of a Prison bus filled with escaped convicts having multiple gunners would make an awesome idea for a boss character and a faster lighter rival to Juggernaut

Also.....Preacher

It's too bad he didn't play a bigger role in the PS3 I was honestly looking forward to seeing his story the most out of everyone's. A crazed Preacher who believes Calypso is the devil and manages to rally up a group of fanatical fundamentalist christians to take him out. I feel like I should write a fanfic myself =P everyone of of the 3 characters has their own signature vehicle except him since let's be frank Brimstone was a shitty car, I want to know I'm I the only one who sees him driving Shadow?

car's name: Fire starter(yes...is the name of a car in tm3)
car design: a fire truck
special weapon: (primary)Flame turret:a turret in the center top of the truck blast flames. It can aim enemy in 360°(like the outlaw'special) and make burning the enemy.(alternative) blazing napalms: a upgraded napalm. It have the same control of the simple napalm but the difference is the blazing napalm has 5 mini napalm when you detonate the napalm.
stats:
speed    {|||       }
armor    {|||||||   } 
handling {||        }
special   {|||||     }


story: no story for now :(

These are vehicles I made up in 2007 but got copyrights in 2012. The snow plow on the left is Suppressor, the log hauler in the center is Steam Punk, and the armored car on the right is Marksman. I made them using Autodesk Maya software and plan to use them in a game, for I am studying Game Design at an Art Institute.

Next time, right-click on the image and hit Copy Image URL (or something similar, but not Copy Image) and use that.

http://c-saw.deviantart.com/gallery/#/d56w75h

Or just paste the link to the DeviantArt page without the [Img.] tags, since it links to the page, not the image.

Your browser might not have Copy Image URL. Just make sure that if it does, to not copy from your Gallery, but from the page for the image itself. Another thing you can do is to hit Download Image on DeviantArt, but tell it to open in a new tab, then copy the URL for that tab. If you just click Download Image, you get a window with no URL to copy.

Came up with a few ideas myself.

First in line (A less appealing)
Shotgun Wedding

http://i.imgur.com/duArv.jpg?1

Vehicle: White, 1979 Mercedes Benz 280E Limo w/ Rear light fins.
(No story; could just say Specter from TM black drives it. owo)

Stats out of 5:

Speed: 2.5 (3)
Armor: 3
Special: 4
Handling: 2 (Or whatever Meatwagon's is)
Weight: Medium

Special:
Type one: Heartbreaker.
The unlucky bride and groom are raised out of the back through the sunroof, chained to the rear seat. The seat is then cut in half, and the bride is catapulted at the opponent (ladies first), followed by the groom. both will do 25 dmg each.

Type two: Lovers Leap
This time, they are raised out; they are both slung into the air, so much so they stay suspended for a total of 15 seconds above ground. Tapping the attack button can send them crashing back down to earth, to explode on an unfortunate opponent or group, or keep them in the air for longer. Tapping the attack button at the near end of their time in the air, will send them to earth ablaze; dealing extra damage, and exploding in an atomic burst of their now dead love.
( 1~4 seconds 40 dmg, 5~14 seconds 60 dmg, 15 seconds, 130 dmg)
(Dealing the 130 will cause a little orange text to pop up saying "Till death do us part" )

Extra:
- There is a wreath on the central spike on the front of the Limo.
- The message on the back, originally "Just Married" is now "Just Murdered", 'murdered' written in red paint.
- Can be made using the pre-existing Limo from TM 2012, during Iron Maiden's boss battle



The second one, better drawn IMO
Kremlin

http://i.imgur.com/jcNOr.jpg?1

Vehicle: Lada Vida combined with ' Stalins Organ '

http://trendzona.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/09/Lada-Niva-4x4-side-view.jpg

http://www.wkmodels.co.uk/media/gbu0/prodlg/11165.jpg

Driver (Should there be one): Kylvin Smithakov
An Ex Russian-American auto-smith, who's son, killed in a gunfight of illegitimate business that one may call capitalism gone wrong, seeks revenge and correctness for the corruption and destruction that has rained upon america. And he believes, the best way is Communism! With his wish he will ask for the revival of the Soviet Nation; but not just in Russia, Across the globe! Equality and peace will rain supreme!

Ending: Just like in Russia; the Bolshovic uprising will happen again, to be replaced with Global capitalism. Then he dies or something. :3

Stats out of 5:

Speed: 3
Armor: 2
Special: 4
Handling: 3 (Equal to Roadkill 2012's)
Weight: Light

Special:
Type 1: Stalin's Organs
Fires a succession of blood missile rockets at the opponent.
The truck opens, connecting the rear pipes to the roof pipes, before unloading Blood-Missile fury on the opponent. it fires in succession 4 times, one going left, then back right, then left, then right again; firing a total of 32 rockets, with a 0.5 interval between each direction change and 8 rockets each, dealing up to 64 damage. (2 dmg per hit)
This requires one 4 full charges of the bar (Like roadkill 2012's special, with one more charge)

Type 2: Motherland Mortar
Building on the first special, the truck reconnects to the roof pipes, and closes again. It pulls the roof up, creating a connection of mortar pipes. With 3 full charges of the bar, it will open, load, and charge the blood missles, before firing all 32 missiles into the air in one quick launch. Then a targeting circle, like that of the Napalm in Tm 2012 will appear traveling across the ground. With a tap of the attack button, all 32 missles will come raining down on the target position in a rain that lasts about a second. If all missiles hit, it can deal up to 100 damage

:O I LIKE KREMLIN but why a OTHER charging special(damm i hate roadkill 2012's special)... a anti capitalism russian guy ^^

Post by IDontEatBabies on 11/15/12 at 20:20:25
Its an idea, Gimmi a break </3

But on the on-field perspective, if i put no-charge, it has to have a damage drop. It isnt fair for something to instantly do 100 dmg with its status as a mid-weight vehicle. Idk. Its just for balance.

I wanted to create a character that was a bus, or bus-like, but I didn't want it to be anything similar to Molo from Vigilante 8 or that bus from Rogue Trip.

Character: Jake Sindel
Car Handle: Malice
Car Type: 1950 GM Futurliner Bus
Special: Top opens up (it does in real life as well) and produces 2 homing missiles that go in both directions so it can hit opponents behind him and in front of him.
Backstory: Jake was an average boy. He had good grades, he had a steady girlfriend, and was going to be on the football team when his life changed for ever. He lived in Suburbia when the first Twisted Metal Tournament took place and it ripped his city apart and killed his family and girlfriend. This profoundly disturbed him and made him crazy. He caught wind that Calypso was the leader of these tournaments and sought out to kill him. But, he wanted a big, huge vehicle that could destroy almost anything and everything. He soon found a scrapyard that had an old concept bus that would be scrapped, but asked the manager of he could have it. Soon, he was able to turn it into a big, killing machine and prepared to enter the next tournament. He was prepared to rip through anyone and everyone who crossed him.
Wish: He wishes for his family and his girlfriend were alive again.
Granted Wish: When he wins, Calypso "revives" his family and his girlfriend, but they are hungry zombies who eventually devour him and eat him alive.

A remake of one of my favorite characters/vehicles I've ever made.
Name: BODYCOUNT
Driver: Unknown
Vehicle:  1964 Oshkosh with Sicard plow with a constant frost covering all of the windows. The hand and door hinges also have a thick buildup of ice at all times.
Special: Gut-Thrower, the forces of hell pull you into this maniacs snow blower of terror!
Origin: He's an ancient snow demon who has stalked the Colorado Mountains for centuries, who was kept at bay by the natives  up until there eradication in the late 1800's. From then on he has been terrorizing the Colorado residence with random disappearances ,and having numerous sightings across the tri-state area. Mostly centering around Old Snowy Roads. In the late 60's an old truck driver spread tall tales of a terrible creature attacking him and taking his plow truck. From then on horrendous mangled heaps of metal and blood have been discovered on the side of the road after large snow storms. They say it was just a wreck, but the local towns folk say it was HIM. The folks say to stay off the roads during any large blizzards or else when you try to flag down some help...it will be him answering your pleas. These occurrences went on until about 1996 when a young wealthy entrepreneur named Calypso was going back to Los Angeles after checking on his multimillion dollar skiing investments. His limo was stuck on the side of a snowy embankment during a whiteout, HE came rolling at Calypso's limo only to come to a halt feet away. Calypso climbed aboard and with a brief exchange of words he had himself his first Twisted Metal competitor! His wish? The rise of a snow covered hell to dominate the earth!

Unveiling another monster; Underbite. (A Dr.Slam mini-tribute)



Stats out of 5:

Speed: 4
Armor: 2
Special: 3
Handling: 2
Weight: Medium

Visual:

This old-style vehicle didnt have an original car in mind, but it does look like

This http://4.bp.blogspot.com/_HmktEZs1I2E/TApzkpgBFZI/AAAAAAAAA7o/KxJD77ZZ4GA/s1600/Classic-Cars-794486.jpg

Plus This   http://www.classic-car-history.com/classic%20ford%20cars/ford-thunderbird-pictures/1955-ford-thunderbird-front.jpg

It will have a dirty-red paint job with a white, burnt convertible roof cover. On the front is a trap-like plough held open by a wires that are strung into the engine, and will snap shut like a mouse trap, putting whoever is unfortunate enough to be caught in its teeth in a vice grip.

Special:

Type 1: Sky-Kisser

The first style special is simple; the plough opens up a little, and when the driver rams into its opponent at a high enough speed, it snaps shut, trapping the unfortunate driver like Roadboat's Mega-Magnet. However, this vehicle will start to pick up speed, before slamming on the gas, throwing the car onto its rear tires, and releasing the target vehicle high into the air, where it will plummet back down to earth. Anyone hit by the falling vehicle will take 15% damage, while the the car tossed up into the air will take 25%

Type 2: Auto-Bracer

It starts the same as the first, the jaw opens up and catches a target. However, instead of throwing the car into the air, it turns into a 6-second sprint, using the car in the jaw as a bracer. As it picks up speed, it will do more damage. At 1~2 seconds it will do 3% damage per hit, at 3~4 seconds it will do 9% per hit, and at 5~6 seconds it will do 15% damage.  Civilian cars do no damage.

Any  player car hit will receive  4% damage at all speeds.

At the end of the special, the Underbite will do a small turbo-wheelie and toss the enemy over the roof.


Driver: Ariel S. Parq, "Underbite"
Origin: Ariel, a paper-pusher for a health magazine had a small jaw problem. A very minute under bite. It wasnt too big to notice, but it stood out to her louder than anything. One of the magazines she was pushing around advertised "E-Clypso, Dental Services and Cosmetics" which offered major discounts on eclipse days. So, checking her calendar she scheduled a jaw realignment the next week on an eclipse day.

Of course, her week went well, and she anticipated the day she would be free from her oddly position teeth.
But, during the operation, at mid-day, when the eclipse took full swing, the darkness covered the streets. The automatic street-lights didnt go on because of the time, and most drivers were caught off guard. And the unfortunate case of a car slamming into a cosmetic hospital rung through the news waves.

18 people were killed when the car veered off course and slammed into the room where Ariel was having her operation, but she was lucky. She lived to tell the tale. Sort of. The accident that went down, got rid of her under bite...  Along with the rest of her jaw.

The nurses would cringe and cry, watching her try to move her non-existent lower jaw where muscle and tendon hung out. She quickly lost it. She didnt want to hear them talking.

The papers the next day reported an insane woman mutilating several hospital goers; all of which were missing their jaws, horribly mutilated.

She was arrested hours later and sent to Blackfeild Asylum. Where... Calypso finds her...

Her Wish: to be able to talk again; and to mute the rest of the world.

Name: Acid
Driver: Micky Morrison
Vehicle: AMC Gremlin X with a blown 401ci V8
Special: the doors, a experimental toxic chemical gas can is hurled through the air onto opponents very much like a napalm gas can. On impact the gas rapidly expands into a cloud mechanically and mentally incapacitating the drivers for a short period of time that may result in weapons back firing and serious sight and hearing impairment or "tripping"
Story: Morrison was drafted into the military early into the conflict of Vietnam. He wasn't actually sent into service but instead was selected to test the military's new attempt at a truth serum . The experiments went horribly wrong, he killed 3 doctors in his confused rage and his mind was in a forever fantasy state in which the world melts into a sea of madness. He was locked away in Blackfield asylum were in 1996 Calypso freed him and temporarily relieved his horrific world and asked him to compete in his Twisted Metal competition to truly be free.

TM Small Brawl Character I created. Tried to model in low polly, and replicate the original style of the game. Also textured by me.

I've always wanted to make a Twisted car out of a Subaru Baja. Maybe I'll do that later today for the hell of it.

It'd be tomorrow for those with normal schedules.

Hi, everybody.  I have just two vehicles to contribute, for now.  I'm bad with names, but I'll give them a shot.  I am horrendous with character design, so I won't bother.

Name; Stretch
Vehicle; Limousine
Special; Homing Napalm launched from the moon roof (like the cheat code weapon from TM2)
Speed; 3
Acceleration; 4
Handling; 4
Armor:2
Special Weapon:5
Weight: average

Name: Flashover
Vehicle; Firetruck
Speed; 2
Acceleration; 3
Armor; 4
Handling; 3
Special Weapon; 5
Weight; Very Heavy
Special; Overhaul - The bucket ladder, fitted with hooks, shoots out and grabs the enemy.  The bucket holds the vehicle about 3 seconds while the player can manually and wildly swing the ladder around via controller joystick, to enforce damage.  At the end, a powerful water nozzle, attached to the bucket, blasts the vehicle off and sends it flying.. which can be aimed.

Obviously, I'm a bit biased with the second vehicle.  What do you guys think, overall?  :)

Title: Re: make a character and show it off
Post by Vlygar on 08/27/15 at 02:22:20
Ehh, what the hell, I'll give it a shot.
Driving Flashover; Chief Fire Marshal Thomas Halligan.  Tom is fed up with all the wanton destruction caused by the tournaments.  He's been to too many sites, noting all the horrible losses and he chooses to end it.  Through all the laws and practices he's put into effect, they've all been broken by Calypso, so Tom sees no other alternative.  He's going to play Calypso's game for the chance to finally end the mass obliteration. 
I know, it is kind of similar to Outlaw's story.

Driver of Stretch; Sir William Reginald Covington the 5th and his butler: Breton Walling. The highest of aristocracy, William can afford it all and afford to pay the price.  Always in need of something new, he's finally taken up hunting human prey (a cliche that isn't quite worn out, yet).  He also wants to create a new assistant out of only the best body parts and top of the line mechanical gadgetry.  He's entered the tournament to fulfill those wishes of his, and should he win, he is going to wish for Calypso's brain and powers to be transformed into the new assistant.  Breton is more than happy to drive the limo for William, as the accumulation of parts gives Breton more down time from William's constantly troubling lifestyle.  During his downtime, Breton loves to vacation in various locales... and bring back souvenirs of human bones.

I have so many ideas. This is the exact reason I joined TMAlliance over a year ago.
My first idea is an already existing character but I put him into the Twisted Metal: Black universe.
It's Crimson Fury: A red Lamborghini Countach driven by a maniac known as The Crimson Killer. He takes his victims' blood and sprays it on his torso to show how insane he is. He is Sweet Tooth and Cage's competition. Me and a friend of mine came up with this idea a few years ago.
As for the new characters, I have a lot of ideas. One of them is named "Archangel", a man who wants to live in heaven and not Earth. He obeys god's rules and was once friends with the now deceased preacher (From TMB).
His car is an orange Camaro with black angel wing decals on both doors. His special weapon is called "Wrath of Heaven" where he spins around and shoots tornadoes at his opponent.
Another idea I came up with was a boss, which is a big red crane truck named "Karnage", driven by Veronica Kane (Sweet Tooth's long lost but crazy sister). She escaped from prison and hijacked a red crane vehicle from a construction yard and entered Twisted Metal in hopes of finding her brother. Her special weapon is "Crane of Pain" where if the vehicle is close enough to an opponent, the crane will pick it up and toss it around. It's pretty powerful.
My last idea (For now) is "Jackpot", a casino decorated Cadillac driven by Jimmy Richman. His wish is to win a lot of money at a casino so he can feel important. The special weapon is called "Mega Card", which has several different random affects like: Fire, ice, and electric.
Do any of you like my ideas? If so, let me know. I know how some of them might be ridiculous ideas (Like Twisted Metal 3 ridiculous). However, I at least tried to give some kind of ideas for Twisted Metal. I've always had this idea for a fan made TM game called "Twisted Metal: Extreme" but I'm not experienced with game development. I still like TM as a series though.
