    I hope we get a Cyber-Akuma profile eventually. I'd like to see what kind of storyline they can come up with for him. Since they can't mention Apocalypse, he'll most likely have an entirely different origin.

    Anyway, I can't wait for the FF2 and FF3 bosses. We don't know much about them, and that makes the information we get more interesting. They still haven't done the Andores yet, though. And they forgot about Billy and Sid, though I'm sure that they don't give a single fuck about them (not that they should, given that they were just excuse replacements, but I wouldn't mind seeing profiles for them).

    Hey guys. I've been at it again. This was one is a South African character. The hardest one for me make thus far. I actually had this on the shelf years. I can't find anything on his martial art. Obnu Bilate. So I had to fudge it. I basically had everything done but his move set. This guy would be the most technical character in SFV. Like Gen he's stance character but unlike Gen. His V-Trigger is effectively a third style. It takes the best normals and throws from his two styles, gives him access to all his special attacks, unique normals, and gives him different Critical Art. I don't think Capcom would a do a character like this.
    Name: Rhonwen Van Zandt (South African First Name, Dutch Last Name)

    Nickname: The Silent Snake (Die Stille Slang)

    Sex: Male

    Ethnicity: Dutch/South African

    Height:6ft 2in(1.88m)

    Weight: 187 lbs. (85kg)

    B/W/H: 42-32-40 (107cm-81cm-102cm)

    Hometown: Durban, South Africa

    Appearance: Brown Pulled Back Dreadlocks, Hazel Eyes, Caramel Complexion, black sleeveless undershirt , forest green short sleeved collared shirt (unbuttoned), denim shorts (knee length), black mma style fighting gloves. Left glove has “Umama” imprinted across the knuckles, right glove had “Vader” imprinted across the knuckles.

    *Umama is Zulu for my mother. Vader(va-dur) is Dutch for father.

    Likes: Solitude, Reading, Languages, Fishing, Bobotie (South African Dish)

    Dislikes: Crowds, Biltong (Beef Jerky), Firearms

    Fighting Style: Obnu/Savate (Obnu Bilate in V-Trigger)

    Tone: Because of his mixed parentage, Rhonwen was ostracized as a child. He is a loner, he spent his time buried in books. To honor both his parents, he tries to draw from both cultures. As a child he started to learn Obnu Bilate from Yaone Phewa* a handyman employed by his father. Obnu Bilate combines Obnu and Savate into a single style.

    *Based on the founder of Obnu Bilate ("Pappa" Nat Whylch ).

    Origins: Rhonwen’s father is of Dutch descent and his mother is of Zulu descent. Both is paternal and maternal grandparents are estranged from his immediate family. They more or less disowned his parents. As a small child, both white and black South Africans often accosted his family. In one particular incident a homeless man actually fought off an unruly mob to protect his mother and baby sister. Since his parents didn’t have much money, they took the man (Yaone Phewa) in. Enamored with the way Yaone was able to take on multiple attackers, a young Rhonwen often followed him around mimicking him during his training. Eventually, Yaone began to instruct Rhonwen and later his sister Ntombi in the art of Obnu Bilate. To earn his keep, Yaone often helped Rhonwen’s father on his fishing boat. A talented fighter, Rhonwen has won several Obnu and Savate tournaments. Rhonwen is technical fighter. He'll fight in a purely Obnu or Savate style to pick up on his foes weaknesses and tendencies. Once he's figured them out, he overwhelms them with Obnu Bilate.

    Reasons to be in SFV

    Ntombi, Rhonwen’s sister, disappeared after winning the PAMAL (Pan African Martial Arts League) junior freestyle championship. Rhonwen has been scouring most of southern Africa in attempt to find her. The only lead he could find was pertaining to a mysterious man showing up for the championship match. The man was described as being dressed in red and wearing a cape. After looking into it further, he found that similar “disappearances” had taken place elsewhere at competitions in different parts of the world. All the disappearances had two things in common. All of the missing fighters were teenage girls and this man in red was present at all of the title matches. Just as Rhonwen is about to plot his next course of action he notices an article about and upcoming worldwide fighting tournament. He's certain at least one of the competitors will drawn this man in reds attention.

    Quotes:

    Ryu: So you are the famous Ryu, Yaone told me how tough you’d be. He wasn’t exaggerating.

    Ken: Now that I've won, I guess that makes me the All American Martial Arts Champion....right?

    Laura: Every time I fight someone from Brazil, they use some sort of electric attacks. Is it something you all eat?

    Karin: Come work for you? I appreciate the offer but I have to find Ntombi

    Nash: Wait...aren't you Guile's friend? I thought you were dead.

    Birdie: You're hungry? Man look at the size of you. You may want to consider a diet.

    R.Mika: Two one one? How is that fair. You seem strong enough to fight on your own.

    Ibuki: Have you seen a man in red? He tends to go after people like you. No? Well please be careful.

    Alex: Seems like you combine multiple styles as well. I'd give you the run back but I'm looking for someone.

    F.A.N.G: You think you can poison a serpent? You're beaten. Where is Ntombi!?

    Chun-li: The cops in Durban don’t look anything like you…oh um. Could help me find this Bison character. He took something very important to me.

    Zangief: Okay Mr. Red Cyclone, why don’t you spin yourself out of my way?

    Guile: So you are looking for Bison too? When I find him, I’ll be sure to get justice for your friend.

    Balrog (Boxer): From champion to lap dog, what a shameful man. You tell me what he did with my sister and I’ll consider giving you back your precious “fight money.”

    Vega (claw): Tell me where your boss is or you’ll be using that mask to hide your face not protect it.

    Cammy: It didn’t have to come to this. I just wanted to ask you a few questions. What do you know Shadoloo and the man in red?

    Rashid: Shadoloo has your friend? I'll make sure their reign of terror ends.

    Dhalism: I’ve quite a few inyangas** in my life, but never on that could stretch their limbs. You must be quite powerful.

    Bison: I’m only going to ask this once. Where is my sister!

    Juri: What is your deal lady? I think you need professional help.

    Necalli: Are you some sort of tokoloshe***? I've read about them. Never though they were real....

    Urien: Hitting you is like strikes a statue. What the heck are you made out of?

    Akuma: I’ve never faced anyone like you before. You are literally a man possessed.

    Miscellaneous:

    *Intulo - lizard man that is the cause of mortality and death in Zulu mythology

    **Inyaga - Zulu witch doctor

    ***Tokoloshe – Zulu word for demon

    Side note: 


    -Yaone Phewa is from Botswana, that's why he doesn't have a South African name.
    -Rhonwen's attacks are named after venomous South African snakes
    -The Grootslang is a mythical serpent that is a cross between snake and an elephant
    -Ntombi was given the designation of “Inlangura” a mangled version of uNhlangula (Zulu word for the month June)

    Edit: Noticed I accidentally, put his F+MP attack twice. Added his missing F+HK overhead attack.

    P. Mechazangi F

    The P. stands for "prototype".
    A refurbished Monitor Cyborg
    specifically developed to contrast Zangief.
    It's an experimental model made by Shadaloo.
    It has a steel body, and it's studying various throw techniques!

    Its translucent gray body
    was covered in Light Ceratanium¹,
    and was thought able to repel any attack.
    Its special technique was Vodka Fire,
    in which it spewed a super-heated blue flame
    making use of the vodka that ran into his body as fuel.
    Because the info were obsolete,
    its distinctive trait was that it still lacked the nozzles
    in the palm of its hands, whence subsequent models emitted Vanishing Energy².
    Several upgrades were added
    to the next released model "Mechazangi F".
    Lord Fang, who has inherited these studies,
    is currently guiding us in the development of "Mechazangi F Mark 3"!
    (It's a parallel setting)


    ¹ A Megaman reference. Already encountered in Shadow Lady's profile. Love it when they keep it coherent.
    ² Yup, it's Vanishing, not Banishing.

    The irony is that you'll rarely ever see "Vanishing Flat" as the accurate translation of the move

    It's also weird that they go out of their way to tie it into current lore by saying that FANG is currently running the project, but then also specify that it's a parallel universe character.

    Make's it seem even less likely that Darun is canon just because his profile mentions events in Story mode.

    If ever Mecha Gief would be in the future games i hope he flies, rotate and spins like Tekken's Jack animation that is more mechanical in terms of joints and movements.

    Not sure why they wouldn't make Mech Zangief canon. Shadow and Shadow Lady had difficult backgrounds to develop and fit into the story, but this one is just a robot. The story they just wrote for its profile seems perfectly plausible, so why not say that the prototype does in fact exist?

    I dunno. It seems kind of dumb for Shadaloo to even make the thing in the first place.

    Zangief has never exactly been one of Shadaloo's arch nemesis. Why would they go out of their way to specifically design a robot to mimic and counter him and not a Honda-bot or a Blanka-bot?

    Well, taking SFV as current standard canon, Zangief is powerful as fuck, just think how psycho-berserk Abel attacked him and got easily destroyed, katanas breaking and Rog (a shadaking) alone being not able to do shit to him

    The anti-gief thing it's likely a tribute to that marvel movie scene where ironman used a gigantic ass special armor specifically to stop hulk

    7H4AxFf.gif
    Hulk_vs_Iron_Man_660_60fps_256c.0.gif

    Also of course MechaGief was already a thing in other games*, so they just built up a story to explain it


    *sf4 robot is the closest, previous one was just Gief on roids
    I designed SFV Ken, your argument is invalid.

    In MvC Mech Gief is just a powerup in MVC and MVC2 like Sakura's Dark version. I'm glad they change it to a robot and into a individual character.

    With the creation of a Mecha Gief, there's no way this creation wouldn't be in charge of guarding whatever Shadaloo decides to create in the future. If Gief decides to show up and destroy whatever it is Shadaloo's cooking up, Mecha Gief will be there to stop him. That's my attempt at giving Mecha Gief's existence a "canon" explanation. I could totally see it playing out that way.
    But Zangief is still, at most, like a B tier antagonist of Shadaloo's.

    If you're going to build a robot specifically to counter one specific enemy, why wouldn't you target one of your more primary nemesis? Why not build a Mecha Guile, or a Mecha Chun Li, or a Mecha Ryu?

    Sorry I'm late guys. Here's the Canadian fighter I promised. I went the Fei Long route with him.
    You make this Canuck, proud! I like what I'm reading here!

    Ooh, double awesome. South African fighter! You do good work man, I'm really pleased with what you've put together!

    On the topic of fan made characters, I made a character to replace Skullomania if they ever wanted to have a non-Arika tokusatsu fighter. I'd love to know your thoughts on this

    Invincible Eagle aka Noboru Takayama

    street_fighter__moving_forward__invincible_eagle_by_shockdingo-d95led6.png
    Street Fighter: Moving Forward is a series of sprite edits I plan to do whenever I have ideas and time to apply them. Basically these are my ideas for new characters and updates of the characters moving on. No real specific time period, but mainly I was inspired by SF 5's drastic changes and wish to share mine.

    First up, we have Invincible Eagle aka Noboru Takayama. I loved Skullomania back in the day and am sad we'll never see him again since he's not a Capcom character, but rather an Arika-owned character. I wanted to take the basic idea of a Tokusatsu-themed street fighter and run with it. I made him an actual martial artist rather than an inspired salesman and with my recent renewed interest in Kamen Rider, let my mind wander.

    I chose Shito-ryu mainly due to it being extremely fast, powerful and flashy. I felt those elements would work nice with a super hero.

    Also, going with some of the elemental themes we see in many Street Fighters (fire being the most common) I felt that since he emulated the eagle, he could be wind based.

    Whoo, profiles are starting up again!

    Starting to feel like the good part of Capcom Unity here. Nice work. What type of move set are you considering? I'm getting a speedy "hit and run" type vibe from him. He reminds me of Ultimo Dragon for some reason.

    Edit: Thanks for the compliments. It means a lot coming from you.

    They might be harder to replicate in robot form?

    My guess is it's a lot easier to create a ridiculously strong robot than a skilled robot. Emphasis would only need to be on Mecha Gief's strength and overall toughness. The 3 you mentioned are more complicated than that. Their fighting skill, energy projection, and potential is where their strength lies. I don't think that's something that could easily be emulated through a creation.

    Kinda like how those Shadaloo files said Sakura was naturally talented for being able to copy moves, but would become next to useless if they attempted to recruit her via brainwashing. The unique part about her would be gone altogether. I think if Shadaloo attempted to make a Mecha Sakura with the same abilities, they'd have the same trouble. Raw strength seems to be much easier to recreate.

    I understand everyone in the Society are trained to be warriors since little, so it wouldn't surprise me if Helen was a playable character. But maybe she isn't one of the next characters as this article points out:

    Do you think Akuma could defeat Bishamon?

    Truthfully, the weakest Darkstalkers character would wreck anyone from Street Fighter. DS characters are ridiculously over powered.

    This. The Darkstalkers supplementary material paints a horrific picture of the DS universe. The make up of the Maki kingdom is some beyond the pale horrors, and things live comfortably there. Frozen seas worse that absolute zero, poisonous fog in forests that rend flesh. Pyron is basically Galactus and Dimitri consumed him.

    I wouldn't put Pyron that up high. Maybe he is like one of the godlins (Thor, Apollo, alien gods. I am assuming you read Marvel comics).

    The desperation for it not to be Helen is so weird. Is it just because people want a surprise? How would ANOTHER grappler be more interesting than whatever Capcom has in mind for Helen?

    I'm actually excited to see how Helen would play in this game. Besides that, hearing and looking at her never gets old. Can't wait to see the various alts for her. I just wish they show her already.

    Well, B-tier or not Gief was defeating fair and square one of the Four Kings*, Rog, laughing MUSCLE! at his face in the process lol

    Or just watch how he smashed effortlessy psycho-Abel like a kid, when Nash (very powerful) + Guile had troubles handle Abel even if he was injuried

    Some characters have extreme qualities that may push enemies to very specific counter-moves

    I will see not much sense on Mecha Guile or Mecha Chun Li, but i can see example if they invented some counter to Dhalsim because his crazy yoga powers may make him an unique treat as Gief's strenght

    And for Ryu, Bison already see himself as the one that is destined to deal with him (plus he got Necalli)



    *i know many beated up Fang at some point, but he's the exception... he's first useful as mad scientist.
    Rog and Vega on other hand have theyr role by fighting power/ability alone.
    I designed SFV Ken, your argument is invalid.

    Heh ,yeah before things went way downhill, I used to like going to Unity to see and post character concepts.

    Definitely speedy hit and run. With the wind style, I was thinking of him having a whirlwind projectile like Joe Higashi only with more range, also I had some ideas of throwing in a few Kamen Rider moves that could be the ending part of a CA.

    Hey no problem man, you put out good stuff and put a lot of thought behind it, thanks for the kind regards man, it means a lot. :)

    Agreed. Cutesy Poison doesn't make sense to me. She should be a vamp. Bold, brash, flirty, confident, her looks + personality go with my headcanon I posted a bit back of her having a tough life so that led to her not taking crap from anyone and embracing the Mad Gear's anarchy.

    Isn't he pretty high on the cosmic scale? It's been a while since I read anything in depth but apparently, in addition to razing the earth of Dinosaurs till is was "ripe", didn't they state that his cosmic powers were nearly limitless? Not 100% sure, but my point still stands that the DS are way too high for any of the SFs to seriously compete.

    @Shockdingo I remember you from Unity. You probably saw some of my older concepts (Gouka, Juni, Juli, and maybe Terentia before) I posted them all over at Unity. I remember @DarthEnder from there as well. I feel bad, there was one user there who's name that I can't recall. He was Final Fight fan with a Guy avatar. He's the one that came up the basic format I use for my character concepts. He was a really good poster as well. He'd be a good addition to this thread. I am terrible with names....I remember numbers for damn near forever though.
