The Battle isn't over... by AndrewDickman The Battle isn't over... by AndrewDickman
Base concept design for a Mega Man X fan character called Yuga. He's the third prime class Maverick Hunter. (Get it? X, Y, Z?)

Though I'm sure it's going to be difficult to convince anyone, I made Yuga as a lost character from the beginning. He's the trainer of both X and Zero... Yeah I know, but considering how the X series story changes dramatically, it could work, no?

The story actually follows the events of Mega Man X8, after the defeat of Lumine, Axl is struck with an unknown complication, thus leading to distrust with the other maverick hunters, including Yuga. Axl is then taken by two mysterious newcomers, forcing Yuga to take matters since the situation has become worse as they announce plans to make Axl the new leader and sole heir to the Reploid Supremacy. or... something like that, I dunno...

Just saying, I give a lot of flack against the X series, but every once in awhile something sparks and I come up with something... The design obviously needs work, but I hope to dabble with him in the future.

Feel free to draw Yuga if you like. He IS a fan character.
Despite the long hair proving his "bad-assery" he has two swords, each which can transform back and forth from blade to blaster

One problem, well two, is that X and Zero were the creations of Light and Wily, respectively, who surpass their previous creations in some way like free will or something. X was the model from which reploids were made from, and Zero was the virus carrier that turned reploids into destructive machines. Where would Yuga fit into this since someone had to made him?

Pretty neat character and design. I'm usually not a fan of insert-characters, but when it's well thought out and imaginative, it's awesome.

Wow. Really good backstory there. I must admit I've got my fair share of *terrible* X fan characters, so it's great to see one that's actually...Really good! :D

The design is interesting, but the backstory sounds a little too Gary Stu-ish for my tastes. XD

I commend you for getting a recognizable shape down, whenever it comes to mega man armor, I always get carried away with the accessory s or body plates.

Imagine the first encounter between them...

Zero (with his arm missing... again): Who are you?
Yuga: You don't remember me? I'm the one that trained you. I'm the one that made you into what you are now.
Zero: Wh-What?
Yuga: In a way... I am your father!
*awkward silence*
Zero: WHAT AM I FIGHTING FOURRRRRRRR!!!

Yeah, so epic. lol :P

wow, that's quite a nice design...I love the colours and the concept, but somehow he looks like a bishoen boy to me, probably with the hair.

The backstory was interesting, and he seems to play an important role in training the main characters and oppose the newcomers...

two swords? transform from blades to blasters? that's so cool, like a gunblade from FF series.

It wouldn't be too much of a stretch to imagine this guy in the series, actually.

Nice design!
