Mighty No. 45 - Shark by AndrewDickman Mighty No. 45 - Shark by AndrewDickman
Okay... lemme explain...

Shark is a bit of a original fan character I made back in the day around Mega Man, I was probably around 14 or something, around the years I first discovered the internet. I have no idea... Either way, I wanted to try my hand at some designs I'd doodled here and there and ultimately came up with "Shark" a bit of a psychotic rival.

After 15 years, and thanks to Mighty No. 9, I decided to re-visit this and fit him more into the design best I could. From what I've seen so far, it's a bit difficult to really pinpoint the exact design methods for Mighty No. 9 but I think I got the general idea of them, at the same time try my own visual differences to make him not so much of a clone. it really brings me back to the days where I'd obsess over the idea of designing for my own sort of "sequel" for the franchise. I can regain that dream with another while still maintaining my love for both.

Shark's main weapon since his creation has been a giant chainsaw-like arm, acting much like a sword. I figure it would be perfect for Beck to mimic with his power changing abilities since I've never really seen chainsaws in action much in these kind of games.

I tried my best to work within the design standard, so I hope I did well. I would like to revisit some other original fan characters I created back in the day and see how they'd work in the MN9 style.

Keep supporting the Kickstarter for console release -…
As well, look up the Shantae Kickstarter which ALSO looks awesome! -…

His design reminds me of Teisel from the Legends series. IDK why. Maybe the hair and the jacket? DEFINITELY the red eyes!

Nicely Done Andrew! By the way, there is a robot design competition going on right now for Mighty No.9. Check it out on their twitter home page! If you want, you could submit Shark here as a design.

Did you get tempted enough to purchase the Kickstarter level that lets you help design a villain for the game?  Maybe Shark could sneak in there after all?

I'm an artist... I'm poor... <=/ I wish I could.

Another great design as usual Mr. Dickman.
vectortoon Featured By Owner Sep 12, 2013
It kind of seems from the other Mighty No's that have been revealed so far - and again from the enemy designs they've been batting around that they're more 'mechanical' in their design where as Beck is unique in him being more humanoid. I suppose you could argue that a higher mighty number would be a successor of Beck, but I think you kind of need to have that distinction between a hero character and a villain.

Well I did say I wanted Mighty to use a chainsaw in the game. So...Yay for being psychic?
MigBird Featured By Owner Sep 6, 2013
Sharks. There's something about them that makes every character/machine/weapon/vehicle/anything modeled after them just all kinds of cool.

I want to make my own mighty number, but can't really donate sadly

Ooh! Shark looks pretty cool! If fans were allowed to design other Mighty Numbers for Beck to fight against, I would hope that this guy made it :happybounce: :happybounce: 
ryan-silverfox Featured By Owner Sep 6, 2013
Heh... I was working on conceptual doodles for enemies/bosses for the game too. I might do something a bit more serious like this as well =p

This is just wonderful, and reminds me of back in the day when you were designing robot masters for...I don't even remember the website. I recall toxic man...and I think Spatula man?

Whatever the case, great design!
Jakearmitage01 Featured By Owner Sep 6, 2013
Andrew when did you decide to make your own robot suit? lol

We need this No., for there is no successor to Metal Man and that's no good. 100% Support for this guy.

Holy shit, this looks so bad ass! :D
KeiraKain Featured By Owner Sep 6, 2013  Student Digital Artist
I'm definitely going to donate at least $20 to the kickstarter for no.9

Also, this design looks pretty awesome! Definitely looks like something one could expect. 

If you don't mind me asking, why No. 45?
