Mythological robot masters - Your favourites

Post by Lozof » Sun Oct 13, 2019 9:58 pm

In the old days people sure had some interesting ideas for monsters and unusual creatures: Centaurs, mermaids and tengus is pretty old fiction, while pharaohs where real, but were supposed to have godly powers. So which robot master based on mythological creatures / powers intrigues you the most?

Why are the three members of the Genesis Unit not listed? All three are based on characters from the Chinese mythological story "Journey To The West". Just curious.
Due to my current inability to play MMM in a satisfactory manner on either of my devices, I will be on hiatus from activity for an indefinite period of time.

My wonder in such polls is which one is going to be voted, the robot master that is seen mythological most to me or the robot master which I liked in this poll.
If I consider 1st, then my answer is centaur man
If I consider 2nd, then my answer is splash woman

On one side I forgot about them, on the other side the Genesis Unit are also specific characters rather than mere mythological "creatures". And it would probably also look weird to feature half the cast of only one game. But yeah, those three might be a bit too overlooked.

Yeah, that's somewhat of a tough choice to make. I remember the discussion about Clown Man in my electric poll.
Why do you consider mermaids less mythological than centaurs?

They're both equally mythological, but Splash Woman is probably more popular since she's the only female robot master. Pharaohs though?

Pharaoh Man is based on Ra, the Egyptian sun god. Especially noticeable with Pharaoh Man's weapon Pharaoh Shot having the ability of generating a miniature sun-like projectile of heat energy above the head of its users. Sounds deserving of the title "mythological" to me at least.

Edit: Since I never stated prior who I voted for, I voted for Pharaoh Man.

mermaids are not historical I think, they are urban legend made by pirates who hallucinated, I may be wrong. But centaurs seem war myths to me and I think they are more ancient
as for pharaohs and tengu, I don't know about tengus or yamatos, but pharaohs were real, so they are not myth, right?

Mythology comes from myth and mermaids are a myth. They might be even older than you think; I read their inspiration possibly came from the sirens at one point (which is Greek Mythology). And I think the pirates who made up those legends are pretty historical. Tengus are some kind of yokai. And pharaohs were real, but - just like Royalguard wrote - their powers they supposedly got from their gods can certainly be classified as mythological. Or do you think the (sun) projectile throwing Pharaoh Man is based on a mere human king?

Solar energy? The biggest pyramid (and I think most of them) have windows that sunlight go through them directly only 2 times in a year.
