Once a week, I will attempt to do a lineage of a current Wii or DS character, similar to the one-page article you see in the Nintendo Power Book. Unfortunately, I don’t have Sketchpad, so I can’t edit these pictures, so I will outline everything below the picture.
Project Hammer’s Cyborg Prototype Lineage
BIG, BAD, AND BALD: These are walking-tall behemoths that may not be attractive, but frighteningly evil. Yeah, Mr. Potato Head may not be big and bad, but what if you saw him in REAL LIFE. He even gives me nightmares! These three candidates beat out Jabba the Hut and Morpheus as honorable mentions!
Mr. Potato Head
ONE-EYED CREATURES: One-eyed monstrosities either portray a pirate or a completely different monoker. Hammer stemmed from these three, the latter known specifically in “The Goonies”.
Mikie from Monsters Inc.
Armor-Bearers: This goes back to the medieval times, when jousting and having a merry ole time was the way to go. And nothing more can protect you from the outer coating of an ARMOUR HOT DOG! “GET YOUR HOT DOGSSSSSSSS!”
The Metal Plate
Armour Hot Dogs
Robin Hood Armor
Hammer Wielders: The legendary hammer has been wielded by some of the most famous icons, in or out of the video screen box. Look at Triple-H; I hope he doesn’t bash someone’s skull in. Then you got MC Hammer. And look where he ended up: BANKRUPT!
Triple H’s Sledgehammer
Peter Gabriel’s “Sledgehammer” Video
ALL-IN-ALL COMPARISON: For a comparison of the Hammer borg’s looks and/or personality or weapon, I think he looks mostly like these characters:
Kano: Whether brothers in a past life or common dead-eye set interests, Kano and Hammer are alike, except ones got a hammer and the other: a knife.
Cortez: He may have two eyes, but Cortez, the protagonist from Timesplitters, with phrases like “TIME TO SPLIT!”, shows us that he can kick monster butt with firepower while Hammer mauls cars and other inanimate objects (hopefully!)
The Terminator: And finally, we’ve got the half cyborg freak, the Terminator, with his glowing red eye similarity. I don’t think you’ll see him behind a grocery store counter, but you can bet your bottom dollar you’ll see him hurl baddies across the room or shoot them down with a semi-auto shotgun. Mauling=very Hammer-like!That concludes this section of Lineage. Hope to start another one soon!
