Title: What's your favorite character?
Post by Argentenuem on 09/20/18 at 00:08:02
I've googled it, but there isn't a poll I can find about everyone's favorite character in Twisted Metal Black. So I've decided to remedy that. Who's your favorite character? And I'm not talking about the drivers or vehicles separately. I mean the characters as a whole. Who is your main? (Twisted Metal Black ONLY)

I know, I'm responding to my own post. I just want to let everyone know that my main is Yellowjacket. Why?

1: Design.
Busted up taxicab? Nice! I like it!

2: Story.
Yellowjacket 's driver is the child son of Charlie Kane who controls the corpse of his murdered father. Awesome! Having Yellowjacket's driver as a child genius who wishes to never seperate from his father is just badass to me.

2: Stats.
Control: 7/10. Speed: 7/10. Armor: 6/10. Special: 6/10.
These stats are very well balanced and very fun to work with. Not too fast, yet not too heavy or clunky. Yellowjacket is overall a well-rounded vehicle that can be used for almost every situation.

3: Special Weapon.
8 spikes protruding from every end that can be fired off or rammed with. Very versatile! I love it!

4: Drifting Skills.
Go to ANY playthroughs of TM:B with Yellowjacket and you'll see that his drifting skills are totally awesome because of the well balanced stats. He is very fun to play as and to zoom around the maps with.

5: Minigun.
I don't know about you, but I find it very annoying in TM:B when I play as a character that has 2 miniguns on either end. 2 miniguns are only useful against large enemies and miss smaller enemies half the time. Plus, it's harder to aim with. On the other hand, yellowjacket has 1 minigun on his right side, which makes it fire faster and be more precise to aim with.

All these reasons are why Yellowjacket will always be my favorite character in Twisted Metal Black.  ;D

Minion.  Wacky guy with a buffalo hide for a mask, driving a water tanker with fire stream.

Preacher/Brimstone. He was the first car I ever played with, and I found his whole concept so morbidly hilarious.

Of all the Black endings, his is the most creative and breaks with the constant revenge plots, plus the conclusion where he's all in darkness, but then dies, and suddenly color comes back into the universe . . .

I don't know, it explained Black's whole concept so well as a contrast between how the crazies saw the universe and how it really was - and it was shocking too. I just loved it.

Plus the car's special had my bro and I constantly cracking up.

Manslaughter became my go-to in Black after a while. I liked the concept of a brute, slower and tanky vehicle which defended itself against on-comers and could absorb tons of flak. When he did get moving, not a lot stood in his way, which also kind of relates to the story I guess. Combined with the ramming, it was satisfying to blow right through anyone with low health easily. As far as the character goes, there wasn't too much of a story to pick up on which made him all the more mysterious. I'd often think up stories or conspiracies in my head to try and fill in the blanks. He was one of the very few actually against the competition, or Calypso rather, which was an interesting aspect. His ending was a cliff hanger, so I just wish there was more to it. Maybe he got his wish fulfilled after all, 'hoping Calypso runs' from him.

Since Manslaughter/Black wasn't a Blackfield Asylum patient, and thus not an official contestant of the contest, he wasn't entitled to a wish, thus Calypso was not obligated to stick around.

Black also says that he was made to kill Calypso, hinting that there was someone behind-the-scenes that created Black (kind of like how Mr. Ash/Darkside created Black in TM1's story). Black in TMB I think was something similar to Frankenstein's Monster, a creature built in a lab, which would explain his simple, slow manner of speaking.

I think I'm gonna go with Manslaughter, as well.
