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! -…

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.
