The first of the RIPs. This one has three different combat programs. And a gun. And a shield.
About this creation
Nidhogg's theme: "The Last Battle" from Dark Cloud.
The ND-04 Nidhogg is a mecha with a RIP (Remotely Interfaced Pilot). The pilot of
Nidhogg is not actually in the Nidhogg, but in a vehicle a short distance away. Like all Sirrushian vehicles, the pilot's ride is nigh-invulnerable (Yup, I'm a Tick fan. SPOON!). The motto of Sirrushian engineers: "If it ain't built like a tank, it ain't made by Sirrush."
I always check the durability of my vehicle's construction. My style of checking the durability is subjecting it to physical punishment (ramming, dropping, stomping, smashing). It's not the most durable one I've ever made.
Each mecha is given an AI in the case that the pilot is out of range. Along with the one-of-a-kind construction of each mecha, each AI is different. The Nidhogg's AI is more advanced, with a personality. Nidhogg's AI is a man in his late 20's with a calm, collected personality.
Each of Nidhogg's three heads contains a different combat program. The dragon head's program is codenamed ABLE SOLDIER. ABLE SOLDIER is a well-balanced mix of offensive moves and defensive techniques, so ABLE SOLDIER is the default program. The "helm's" program is codenamed FINAL ONSLAUGHT. FINAL ONSLAUGHT is comprised of almost only offensive moves, with little defensive techniques thrown in. The daemon head's program is codenamed UNYIELDING WALL. UNYIELDING WALL is, surprisingly, comprised of mostly defensive techniques, with few offensive moves included.
Nidhogg's weapon is a four-barrelled gun that is held in his right hand*. The gun has moderate range with high power. The shield in his left is capable of repelling most attacks. If necessary, Nidhogg can throw his shield like a giant boomerang to inflict serious damage to a maximum of two targets.
"Pierce through the heavens with your drill!" (Quote from TTGL)
Yes, Barron is the pilot. Happy, Barron?
Now what kind of TTGL fan would I be if I didn't include some sort of drill image somewhere?
