Character Contest 74 75: Random-palooza

We haven't done a "random name" character contest in almost a year, so I think it's about time we revisited this always-fun concept.

It's pretty straightforward and a great way to stretch your creative muscles.

Whoever comes up with the best character based on a random name generated by Seventh Sanctum Superhero/Villain Name Generator will win a) his or her choice of either any item they like to be included in the final HeroMachine 3 version; b) a portrait to be included in the final HeroMachine 3 version, or c) a "sketch of the day" style custom drawing. The rules are fairly simple:

The person with the winning entry as selected by our expert panel (i.e. me) will win their choice of a) a portrait to go in HeroMachine 3, b) an item to go in HeroMachine 3, or c) a custom black and white "Sketch of the Day" style drawing (also by me). The rules otherwise are the same as always:

  • Go to the Seventh Sanctum Superhero/Villain Name Generator and choose "10" from the number of names to generate. Leave the other selection boxes at their default and hit "Generate". Your character(s) must be based on one of these generated names. Try your best to limit yourself to one spin of the wheel instead of generating names over and over till you get one you like!
  • All entries must be in JPG or PNG form (BMPs are too big), posted to a publicly accessible website (like ImageShack, PhotoBucket, the UGO Forums, whatever);
  • Entries must be made as a comment or comments to this post, containing a link directly to the image and the character name;
  • The image cannot have been used in any previous HeroMachine character design contest;
  • Please name your files as [your name]-[character name].[file extension]. So DiCicatriz, for instance, would save his "Bayou Belle" character image as DiCicatriz-BayouBelle.png.
  • Please make the link go directly to the image (like this) and not to a hosting jump page (like this). If you see "preview" or "rotate" somewhere in the link you're probably doing it wrong.
  • All entries must be in by next Monday, when I'll choose a winner.

No limit on entries this week, so knock yourselves out. Just make them good!

  9. dblade says:

    @PapaKrok(8): Holy smoke, that is awexome! Why? Why must you always push me?

  10. Hunter63 says:

    Heres my character, thought the name was a funny coincidence so I made this OC TMNT Character (Original Cartoon) and I like how he came out, if my laptop wasn’t so limited I could make better ones but meh, I like him.

  11. Tarkabarka says:

    Dblade (11) – That picture not usually awesome that picture is shocked for me. I see and i think no chance…. I thinked it i finish this contest…. – But i make a try anything is possible.

  12. PapaKrok says:

    Dblade! Because you always kick HM butt and smoke my entries 🙂

    I just had to get the creative juices flowing…I might save another one for the last few hours this time…

  13. Tarkabarka says:

    PapaKrok in Hungary we use a prase “Na ne basszunk ki egymással.” – I don’t want to translate it. – That picture is so cool…. – I think you could go to rest your imaginery because you make this type of picture we all goes for sanitarium.

  14. PapaKrok says:

    Tarkabara 🙂 TY!
    I usually find that the competition steps up and knocks it out of the park!! There are some damn talented creators here. I feel a rumble starting…..

  15. dblade says:

    @PapaKrok(14): I don’t know. I seem to recall some past contests where my stuff took a scorching from the Papa. 🙂

  16. Myro says:

    Well, despite the fact that PapaKrok’s entry probably will shame anything I will come up with in the future, these randomizer contests usually turn out to be pretty fun. And the well has been running pretty dry on my creativity lately, so this might be just what I need to get it running again. I’ll come up with a list tonight

  17. Frevoli says:

    Animal Duke
    Chemical Tornado
    Fang Thorn
    Feline Giggle
    Ice Mistress
    Pearl Wind
    Plastique Pierce
    Reptilian Sword
    Road Basher
    Wood Eagle

    hmm, there’s deffinately potential – luckily I’ve got the day off tommorrow, so we’ll see what we can get through

  18. Chisoph says:

    Amphibian Hack
    Amphibious Chance
    Apex Negator
    Disease Chance
    Freeze Viper
    Jackal Root
    Midnight Shooter
    Winter Chase
    Wolf Taint
    Wood Haunt

    Hmmm… maybe midnight shooter.
    And is it okay if I spin again later and make another one? Or should i just come back here?

  19. McKnight57 says:

    Amphibian King
    Whale Masher
    Steel Howl
    Occult Laugh
    Crimson Leaf
    Hound Raptor
    Rapid Thought
    Oracle Crusher

    Can’t decide whether to go with Steel Howl, Rapid Thought, Ultratooth or Astrojoker. Somebody help me narrow it down, please.

  20. Hunter63 says:

    crap, did I have to post what I got in the selections first?

  21. Jeff Hebert says:

    Hunter63: No, no need, though it is interesting to see what people get. It’s an honor system kind of thing 🙂

    And if you feel the need to spin again, that’s ok too. The idea is to have fun and spur your creativity, not to be totally rule-bound.

  22. Kaldath says:

    Bane Web
    Bolt Shamaness
    Cleric Spider
    Dusk Hawk
    Fighter Chance
    Magician Nullifier
    Shadow Queen
    Swim Golem
    Track Root
    Viral Zap

    I’ll be taking a crack at Dusk Hawk, Shadow Queen, and Viral Zap

  23. Captain Kicktar says:

    Beast Diviner
    Carapace Cannon
    Earth Stone
    Gold Runner
    High Joker
    Space Crush
    Swimmer Jester
    Trace Hand

    Hmmm… I’ll try Beast Diviner and Gold Runner.

  24. Hunter63 says:

    Astral Ghost-nay
    Black Ghost-may
    Dark Spectre-yay
    Ethereal Man-nay
    Ghost Shade-nay
    Master Woman-nay
    Midnight Shade-nay

  25. Zaheelee says:

    Kaldath, you might want to rename your entry, or Jeff might reject it, which would be such a shame because it is absolutely AMAZING! I wish i could do that 🙂

  26. Loki says:

    Girl Lad….that was just one of them. Thought you should know.

  27. Zaheelee says:

    Astral Ghost
    Delusion Mace
    Dusk Shadow
    Enchantress Bark
    Orca Kill
    Sapphire Racer
    Shamaness Gleam
    Tree Raptor
    Vision Hawk

    Hhhmmmmmm, I kind of like Vision Hawk, and Enchantress Bark has some promise. I will have to see. It is the end of the quarter for me, and I might not be able to churn out anything that has any hope of beating PapaKrok, but we shall see 🙂

  28. Zaheelee says:

    wait, are we allowed to narrow down the options?

  29. Kaldath says:

    @Zaheelee (28) – The File Name is Kaldath-Shadow Queen.png , So when Jeff lifts it off of UGO it will have the proper format.

  30. Hunter63 says:

    N is Web Master, I hope he turns out well. I am using a old template I made a month ago when I was testing using weapons and shoulder pads as helmets and mask.

  31. TOOL says:

    I got on that site and it gave me “Dark Fist” as one of the choices and I really liked it. I’m still having trouble trying to piece my characters with a background but thought I would try something to see if it would look good and I feel satisfied. See what you think.

  32. Luclucluc says:

    This is my second time entering one of these contests, isn’t it? Anyway, here’s the names I got.

    Arctic Dog
    Chance Crow
    Cyborg Web
    Lupine Kill
    Mind Axe
    Nemesis Chase
    Rush Tracker

    Nemesis Chase in particular really clicked for me, resulting in… This.

  33. Hunter63 says:

    The next Random name guy is my favorite, Web Master, in this pic I made it look like the poster for a TV show (preferably on AMC)and the character is loosely based on Spider-man and Batman (similar back ground to both, has some powers but also uses tech for things he cannot due and is a good composite random name)

  34. Kaldath says:

    Entry #3 – Viral Zap – Able to Generate and fire a Mystic lightning blast, Viral Zap can also infect both People and Machines with a deadly Magical Virus when he strikes them with his lightning blasts. :

  35. McKnight57 says:

    Here is Rapid Thought. I figured it made sense to make him a telepathic speedster.

  36. Hunter63 says:

    So, what do you guys think of my first three true entries so far?

  37. Joel says:

    Entry #1

    Qu’har is from the land of Mancerian, a land were magic rules. He was a criminal caught and forced to fight in the gladiatorial arena for the amusement of the mages. He fought for several years but was one day killed when he was pitted against several foes at once. His skills were so great however that when a dark spirit came to collect him, he destroyed the spirit and took its undead body, turning himself into an undead necromancer. He used the fallen bodies of gladiators before him to create an army and escape the arena, now he fights to destroy all those who would use magic. Qu’har is dead, now he goes by the name Bronze Mage.

  38. Luclucluc says:

    My second entry for this one, here’s Mind Axe.

  39. Gene says:

    I got an evil sounding one;

    So I made something evil looking.

    When my wife stopped by and said “That’s Disgusting” I knew I was on to something.

  40. Garett says:

    I got Rotting God. I instantly thought of a Marvel campaign that my Dad(Gene) started where you play a God from mythology(Greek, Norse, Egyptian, etc.) I made Zeus, and I converted him into a Rotting Zombie.

  41. skybandit says:

    For my first ten entries, I’ve turned the instructions on their head and adapted existing pictures to the names generated. Those names are designated by parentheses, as in “Generated Name.”

    Meet “Cleaver Thought,” guardian of the Troll Bridge, entrance to the Otherworld.

    Codename: “Fish Breed.” Lognom, Khan of Lemuria, fought the Japanese in WWII.

    The IWS “Galactic Emerald” meets the USS Space Trip over the planet Myanus II.

    “Golem Thrust,” the bubblebrained warbot, during a routine rampage downtown.

    This is Skarias, the “Kick Visionary,” who’s seen one too many superhero movies.

    “Morph Pacer” leads the angry Wormhole Surfers a merry chase through subspace.

    The “Planet Bird” has returned to its egg after eons of gestation for…The Hatching!

    Here’s “Raptor Paw,” the Apache-raised Avian Avatar, and some of his flying friends.

    “Ruby Torch” fights a Battle on High with an Amazon Angel to earn entry to the Aerie.

    Designated “Slicing Razor,” this Tarantis Mekabot came here to scout for the Omnihive.

    For my next ten, I’ll make all new pictures to match the names generated.

  42. McKnight57 says:

    Here’s my second stab at it. Occult Laugh is a psychotic murderer and necromancer. Think of the Joker if he’d had occult abilities and were a necromancer.

  43. McKnight57 says:

    Oh, right. I forgot to mention that the symbol on his chest is a representation of the Necronomicon or Book of the Dead. While reading from the Necronomicon, he was struck by a bolt of lightning, which created a conduit through which the knowledge of the ancient tome flowed. This caused him to absorb all of the spells and information.

  44. Trekkie says:

    I ended up with:
    Astral Crusher
    Blessed Chaser
    Breeze Viper
    Bronze Wasp
    Cold Wind
    Eat Axe
    Ember Driver
    Trap Comet

    I reckon I can get something out of most of these, but Cold Wind really caught my eye.
    Also, I’ve got a couple (maybe more, I need to check) creations I did based on random names from a few months back. Would it be okay if I entered those as well?

  45. borntobealoser says:

    Well this one seems like a lot of fun. I ended up with Jest Hunter. I liked it because it didn’t sound as out there as other options, yet it still is silly.

  46. Luclucluc says:

    What’s this? Another entry?! Yep, I’m feeling partiuclarly inspired by this contest, so here’s entry number 3 from me (That rhymes!)…

    Cyborg Web

  47. Kaylin88100 says:

    Two versions of this one as well:
    Falcon Deluder (withOUT speech/thought bubbles)

    Falcon Deluder (WITH speech/thought bubbles)

  48. gendonesia says:

    got some marveleous name here:

    Amethyst Taint
    Bite Glow
    Dynamo Stinger
    Feline Crush
    Knife Storm
    Mirage Caster
    Sword Shadow

    , and IRONA will come soon 😀

  49. Jetisr says:

    Chemical Shade

    The year is 2015 and a young Tomas Shade is about to turn 21. Little does he know that his father has been killed… by Tomas. Earlier that year, he’d broken into his father’s office and found a small box. When he opened it, he found the ChemShade’s. Foolishly, he put them on. The ChemShade’s transmutated his DNA, giving him abilities beyond his imagination. It game him the power to manipulate every chemical known to man, and even ones that weren’t. With one very jarring side effect. The ChemShade’s transmutating of his DNA created an alter ego, who was the manifestation of Tomas’s desires, anger and frustration.

  50. Myro says:

    My list consisted of:
    Air Glimmer
    Enchantress Stone
    Mage Bug
    Oceanic Rock
    Rock Shade
    Royal Chase
    Scarlet Driver
    Stellar Whale
    Universe Tempest

    I decided to start with Scarlet Driver, a Miami Beach vigilante.

    Also, it felt weird, but good, doing this. I had taken the last two character contests off to recover from Friday Night Fights.

    Mage Bug seems like an interesting second choice. I’ll see what I can do about that name next.

  51. Watson Bradshaw says:

    names I got are
    Assault Hound
    Bloom Android
    Comet Ruby
    Fight Breeze

    can’t wait to start

  52. Diazmydaz says:

  53. Watson Bradshaw says:

    whoops second 5 are
    Dirt Tracker
    Nemesis Ghost
    Root Cobra
    Swift Driver

    Assault Freezer
    Bee Lynx
    Cleric Count
    Hit Tooth
    Night Cascade
    Snow Breed
    Universe Enchantress

    Time to burn out my latest patch of creativity!

  55. Kytana says:

    Axe Bombadier
    Chaser Slicer
    Fang Gal
    Ghost Spider
    Laugh Cleaver
    Noble Blood
    Space Searcher
    Zephyr Trace

    Hm…”Vibro”mage…what the hell ist that Oo
    (think about like a mage who hide a vibrator)

  56. Jack Zelger says:

    CYBERLIZARD: A man volunteered for an experiment to combine the genetic material of animals with a human. But the experiments took unexpected turns, grafting lizard flesh and DNA onto the subject, slowly changing him into some man-lizard hybrid. The frightened, angry subject broke free of the lab to find help.

  57. Kaylin88100 says:

    Hmmm…seeing some fun ones on other people’s lists so I might steal some 😛

  58. Xenowolf says:

    Okay… read the directions this time.

    Nerve Giggle, again.

    Laughter can be Fatal!


  59. Kaylin88100 says:

    @Xenowolf (73): Here’s how to do it. Go to your album. Normal view not slideshow. Hover the mouse over your picture. A box should come up around the picture. Go down to the text that says “Direct link”. There is a small box just about 2mm to the right of this text, click in this box. The text in it should change to say “Copied”. Ctrl+V in the comment box. Done and it should look like this (except with your picture):

  60. Kaylin88100 says:

    OK, where I said 2mm it’s more like 1cm, but hey, you know what I mean.

  61. Xenowolf says:

    Okay… read the directions this time.

    Nerve Giggle, again.

    Laughter can be Fatal!

  62. Tarkabarka says:

    My first entry the Random-palooza contest

    So the name is Aeon Sapphire.

    The pose so similar with my Taisen char pose, but not that. Very hard to make a character with a name.

  63. Kaylin88100 says:

    @Tarkabarka (78): Wow. Brilliant! I think I’ll just give up now…joking 🙂

  64. Kaylin88100 says:

    @Xenowolf (77): Well done! 🙂

  65. Rapthama says:

    The Cleric Count –

    Radec Godfrey, a renegade nobleman, who lived during the Victorian era. He was considered as the patron saint of the homeless in London, due to which other nobelmen opposed to. He was also an extremly lawful folower of the Light. That’s where his cruelty comes from actually.
    Before taking people to his home, he always asks them, what religion do they support. There are only three options in that matter :
    1) If the person has no religion to follow, Godfrey himself teaches them everything about it.
    2) When the person is (for example) a catholic, he throws them into his personal cells to rot.
    3) If they support the Light as well, he will make them his guests for as long as they want to.
    Following the strict paths of the Light, Radec has also been nicknamed as the Cleric Count.

  66. Sutter_Kaine says:

    Don’t know if I’ll have time to enter this one but here’s my list:
    Blessed Soldier
    Canine Catch
    Fly Tempest
    Frozen Golem
    Seed Magician
    Shadow Freezer
    Trap Comet
    Web Joke
    Winter Hound

  67. Jack Zelger says:

    SNOW STRIKE is a former figure skater who gained the power to control snow and ice and wield it as a weapon. SHe can control cold air and wind to hover in the air. She sees being a superhero as a whole lot of fun. Her costume is patterned after one of the many costumed she used in competition. (I really don’t know how I came up with this!)

  68. Worf says:

    @Rapthama(81): Nice picture. You might want to make it a little bit brighter overall. Speaking from experience, if Jeff can’t see it properly you won’t make it.

  69. Keith_Kanin says:

    Ok, i am new th the hero machine, only been using it for a few weeks. I am starting to get the hang of it, so i will debut one of my first creations here. let me know what you think.

    I hit the randomizer and got:
    Andriod Taint
    Cut Catch
    Fission Lie
    Hand Shooter
    Insect Swim
    Jape Emperor
    Jest Chiller
    Midnight Cleric
    Murder Searcher
    Rain Dart

    Interesting. I have something for Midnight Cleric that I have been working on. And I have some ideas for Rain Dart and Murder Searcher. (btw, I could not help but laugh at my first selection.)

  70. Jeff Hebert says:

    Keith_Kanin, I didn’t even know androids HAD a taint …

  71. Tarkabarka says:

    So my second entry in the Random – Palooza contest.

    The Spirit Killer.

    Sienna Johnsonn a witch, who use her power to kill people. She is an silent Assasin.
    “Wake up my childs. Come to your master. Give me your power what the bigger lord gives me. See this man. I want his soul. Take me his spirit, to finish him, and his soul despair in forever.

  72. Luclucluc says:

    I’d be half tempted to use that name now Jeff, but I don’t think that entry would be appropriate.

  73. skybandit says:

    Oops! I duplicated my #10 entry with a link to my #4 entry!

    Designated “Slicing Razor,” this Tarantis Mekabot came here to scout for the Omnihive.

    And Android Taints have to be ordered from the catalogue, they’re optional.

  74. Luclucluc says:

    This’ll be my fourth and last entry.

    Chance Crow

  75. Keith_Kanin says:

    Luclucluc lol, if u want it take it. not quite sue what i would do with an android taint anyway.

  76. Luclucluc says:

    I think we’d rather not know what you’d do with an android taint either, Keith.

  77. Blaq_aries says:

    I think I may have some fun with this……

    Cleric Killer
    Deadly Soul
    Girl Priestess
    Jet Man
    Prophecy Mistress
    Prophet Mistress
    Prophet Soul
    Shamaness Lad

  78. Keith_Kanin says:

    just leaarned the hard way, save early, save often. lost an hour of work with one keystroke.

  79. BenK22 says:

    Introducing Dog Melter! Whenever the Great Lakes Avengers find themselves one short for their 5-man AD&D adventuring party, they call Dog Melter (because they know he’ll be home).
    Make certain that whenever you are out walking your dog, you clean-up after it or face the wrath of Dog Melter!

    Powers: Melting dogs with eye beams (no flight capabilities)
    Superhero Role Model: Superman
    Nemesis: Dog poop on the sidewalk

    He’d probably be good in a fight against werewolves, though (unless he ran away in terror first).

  80. McKnight57 says:

    Keith & Jeff: My best guess is that it’s right between the motor oil dipstick and the electric plugin.

  81. Hunter63 says:

    So what do you guys think of my current guy?

  82. McKnight57 says:

    Keith_Kanin: Do you mind if I take a crack at Android Taint, I mean if it’s cool with Jeff as well?

  83. McKnight57 says:

    Hunter63 (100): Very nice. Good coloring and background. I like the look of the armor too.

  84. Joel says:

    Entry #2

    I decided to go a different route with this one. The name I got was Cutlass Knife.

  85. Xenowolf says:

    Thanks Kaylin:)

  86. Keith_Kanin says:

    This is Sable, Midnight Cleric. High priestest of the Dragon Queen. In her hand she holds the Queen’s Tail. A 5 headed chain whip seething with dark power. On the horizon, the Dark Queen’s swarm has been summoned. Tremble as they approach. The end is near.

  87. Keith_Kanin says:

    sorry, didn’t have that link right the first time. this one should take u there.

  88. Gene says:

    Okay, let me try this again.


    This little guy was created in a lab by a severley demented technomage.

  89. McKnight57 says:

    Here’s a version of Keith_Kanin’s Android Taint. I figured he’d be like a techno vampire, TAINTing all cybernetic life. Here he is on his flying saucer, where the last 3 androids he feasted upon have ended up as holographic hood ornaments.

  90. Yeah, I took a quick glance before I jump full in…

    @PapaKrok(8): What’s it gonna be? I would like flowers but instead you kick me there as if I play for the Green Bay Packers.

  91. Tate Chitwood says:

    Here is mine.

    He is Indestructible Eagle and was born a mutant with certain eagle attributes, such as wings and talons. He possesses the power of flight, as well as incredible long distance vision and hearing, and the ability to communicate with other animals. He fights crime with his powers, as well as various minor gadgets he creates himself that help him incapacitate baddies. His shield (obviously) helps protect him and is seen leaning against a rock in the background.

  92. Luclucluc says:

    Ok I lied, one more entry for this from me. I decided to take a crack at Android Taint as well. The idea here is some diabolical mechanical beast that goes around replacing people’s flesh with steel and organs with machinery, tainting humans and converting them to androids.

    And for the sake of the subtle pun, the victim in the picture is a bum.

  93. Hunter63 says:

    Here is another, War Spawn, the export kept messing up so this is the best I could get.

  94. McKnight57 says:

    3 of my 4 reviews for this week are live on the blog right now. About to post the review of Captain Atom.

  95. Trekkie says:

    Third and fourth entries:
    They both have the same name (hope that’s okay) and I did them a while ago from a random name (again, hope that’s okay).

    Android Fever- It’s what happens when a robot gets ‘flu. The glowing orange bits would normally be blue, but when it’s overheating (or has a fever) then they glow orange. The blue thing on it’s head is an ice pack.:

    Android Fever (Mk. II)- Repaired and refitted after suffering from the ‘flu, the android’s memory got tampered with. Believing itself to be in the 70s, the android came down with a new kind of fever…
    Disco Fever!:

  96. skybandit says:

    Next weeks contest: designing Android Taint.

  97. headlessgeneral says:

    My list:

    Bug Fire
    Conjurer Crow
    Frost Dutchess
    Joker Tide
    Spear Girl
    Titanium Chance
    Trick Foot

    I decided to go with Trick Foot first and came up with this cyborg type guy

    Entry #1

    Then I started thinking, “Trick Foot? That’s a silly name. Why is my character so serious?” So then I came up with this guy

    Entry #2

    I like both. Hope you guys do too.

    Also, this contest is fun. I’ll probably be doing quite a few of these 🙂

    And I think I might have messed up the links. So here are the good ones.

    Entry #1

    Serious Trick Foot

    Entry #2

    Fun Trick Foot

    Sorry about that.

  99. Kaylin88100 says:

    My 4th entry. Probably only going to get in 1 more, at the most.
    Second Kill

  100. Kaylin88100 says:

    Oh wait, I spotted a mistake. Fixed and re-submitted.
    Second try of “Second Kill”. 🙂

  101. Tarkabarka says:

    Too many entry and i can’t make quick review. – I think out something.

  102. Kaylin88100 says:

    5th entry. Probably my last as I go on holiday tomorrow.
    Bee Shooter

  103. Kaylin88100 says:

    I was wrong. Bee Shooter wasn’t my last entry. This might be though. Entry Number 6 of a possible 10.
    Charm Cyborg, a fortune-teller with a difference…

  104. Tarkabarka says:

    So this is my Third Entry in the Random – Palooza Contest.

    Ember Joker – A bad soul with fire. He is crazy and madness in his lost mind. He want to burn the whole world. He only one thing love too see something burn and the people are screaming when they see the flames starting ups.

    Ember Joker

  105. Kaylin88100 says:

    OK I’ve got some free time, but I’m out of ideas for my original 10, so I’ve rolled again and got:
    Apex Hunt
    Blue Pierce
    Chance Plastique
    Charm Deciever
    Hound Rose
    Laugh Blood
    Murder Ghost
    Razor Falcon
    Steel Hack
    Vision Mistress

    Got some ideas for Blue Pierce and Vision Mistress, but overall this lot looks a bit harder than the first one I got.

  106. Darth_neko says:

    Hornet Assasin
    Decay Dutchess
    Delusion Dash
    Ghost Searcher
    Glimmer Cat
    Knife Hunter
    Necrotic Blow
    Spear Hawk
    Star Glimmer
    Atomic Man

    Those are mine. I’m already done with Atomic Man, I think I should probably do Hornet Assassin too…

  107. Darth_neko says:

    Atomic Man! What do you guys think he’s about to do to that flag? 😀

  108. Tarkabarka says:

    Guys i can’t make quick review more than 73 entry picture. I can’t tell more keep on going. Everybody make good job.

  109. Tarkabarka says:

    My next ten random names.

    Cleric Soul
    Dolphin Web
    Galaxy Butterfly
    Magician Dart
    Sister Nightfall
    Scarlet Trapper
    Tiger Stabber

    First i really think omg i can’t make any picture but what i see SISTER NIGHTFALL – Hmmm i have a picture with the Nightfall name. WOW – (Also this is a song title)

    So my Fourt entry in the Random Palooza contest.

    Sister Nightfall

    (i really don’t make this picture for this contest, but by the way i think prefer for it)

    I think i choose also Galaxy Butterfly or maybe Propheto and Magician Dart

  110. Kaylin88100 says:

    @Loki (29): I’ll make a “Girl Lad” for you if you don’t want to. In fact, I’ve already made one. Want me to enter him/her/it?

  111. Hunter63 says:

    So, what do you guys think of (what is not complete sadly do to issues on the computer) War Spawn, after all I like criticism and opinions.

  112. dblade says:

    Probably the least crazy of my random choices, but somehow it appealed to me.

    Here is the Midnight Seer. She will look into your soul and rip open the veil of reality.

    Midnight Seer

  113. Captain Kicktar says:

    Gold Runner:

  114. maniacmick says:

    #4 Tiny Gal, she maybe tiny but she has the strength of a person 800x her size

  115. dblade says:

    @Kaylin88100(141): I dare say you would have been the first (and probably only) person to finish all 10 random names if you would have had the full span of days. 🙂

  116. Keith_Kanin says:

    Since everyone seems to be having so much fun with Andriod Taint, here is my take on it.

    The Andriod T.A.I.N.T. (Tactical Artifically Intelligent Nerd Terrifier) was once a machine programed to help mankind. After some nerds hacked it’s programing, something went horribly wrong. The main program was wiped and all that was left was the primary command: Learn, adapt, and become more human. As a function of this progaming it tried to litterally “become” human. Now it stalks the streets looking to harvest living body parts to replace it’s own with from anyone foolish enough to cross it’s path.

  117. Keith_Kanin says:

    @Joel Cutlass Knife…Brilliant.

  118. TerminusVitae says:

    I couldn’t resist this time. Love seventh sanctum generators, use them all the time! And Heromachine and that together? well…. Nuff said. Anyway, here’s my somewhat Lovecraftian entry, the Duskivore!

    Night. A time when the mind drifts into unconsciousness, not only to replenish and regenerate, but to hide from what lies in wait.

    It waits.

    Deeper and higher than any man has ever gone, in the farthest reaches of reality, lies the palace of broken glass that holds It at bay; A palace wrought, by fires fuelled by burning flesh, cooled in the tears of unborn infants, and constructed by the Old Ones.

    It watches.

    Long ago, in a time before even the universe itself, It stalked the wastes, leaving annihilation in it’s wake. Consuming all in its path, It laid waste to the universe that came before. Until only the Old Ones remained.

    It seethes.

    The Old Ones, knowing they could not defeat It, sealed It in the Tomb of the Void.
    A dimension of infinite antimatter, they hoped it would hold the dreaded Duskivore.

    They were wrong.

    It AWAKES!!!

  119. enjiner says:

    My first entry to one of these competitions…

    Armed with alien telekinetic powers and a very poor understanding of human culture, it’s Earth’s insectoid hero…
    Carapace Thrust!

    ImageShack seemed to munch up my filename (hyphen disappeared) – does that affect my eligibility for the contest?

  120. Vampyrist says:

    Here is my first entry, God Rot.

    “The thing people don’t realize about gods is they’re more similar to us mere mortals than you’d think. They, like us, need nourishment to survive and what they feed on is faith. Belief is what keeps them alive.

    The gods of old, like Zeus and Osiris grew fat on their followers, becoming more and more powerful. Unfortunately, the bigger they are, the harder they fall. One day, the belief stopped, their followers moving on to other gods or even in this day and age, no gods at all. They found themselves starving, fading away into nothingness. That’s all that’s left for them, to rot into myth and then be forgotten altogether.”

  121. Hunter63 says:
    Serpent Master, based as a enemy in a Greek time game.

    And here is a gritty reboot of the alter ego of Michelangelo from the second TMNT cartoon.
    Turtle Titian.

    the second one was a bit harder than the others I made so far.

  122. Keith_Kanin says:

    My third entry.

    Rain Dart

    With the ability to energize and hurl projectiles with a thought, he will “rain” arrows (darts) down upon evil with a vengeance.

  123. Vampyrist says:

    Another Entry, the quick and silent Lake Assassin.

  124. Hunter63 says:

    So what do you guys think about my last entry?

  125. twistedjack says:

    Jester Fire
    Mouth Bird
    Seer Construct
    Seer Fortune
    Snow Paragon
    Sonic Siege
    Sorcery Beast
    Spectre Crow
    Spider Queen

    i will stay with spectre crow

  126. twistedjack says:

    or jester fire sounds good

  127. dblade says:

    @Hunter63(153): Hey there. You might want to reference the thread number and name of your entry so people can quickly jump to it.

  128. Keith_Kanin says:

    I had to rename Rain Dart, so here he is with the right name and link along with my other two entries.

    Rain Dart


    Midnight Cleric


    Android T.A.I.N.T.


    Since this is the first time that I have entered one of these contests, I could really use some feedback. Let me know what you think.

  129. Darth_neko says:

    TerminusVitae, Wicked creation! Simple, but it gets the point across! 😀

  130. mashlagoo says:

    Beast Android
    Chemical Deciever
    Copper Basher
    Gale Joke
    Master Phase
    Metal Chiller
    Poison Cobra
    Rapier Tornado
    Sable Vibe

    So many good choices. Poison Cobra, Rapier Tornado, Chloroscimtar… so many to choose from. What did I choose though?

    Yeah… no high road for me. I just couldn’t resist.

  131. mashlagoo says:

    I guess my first attempt to post my entrant didn’t take.

    Anyhow, on my first roll of the wheel I got these.

    Beast Android
    Chemical Deciever
    Copper Basher
    Gale Joke
    Master Phase
    Metal Chiller
    Poison Cobra
    Rapier Tornado
    Sable Vibe

    Many good possibilities… I was more incline to Poison Cobra, Rapier Tornado, Chloroscimitar.

    But, instead I decided on the below. I guess there was really no contest.

    Yeah, no high road for me. I just couldn’t resist.

    I imagine him about to say “Pull my finger.”

  132. mashlagoo says:

    Sorry for the double (now triple) post.

    I did not see my comment appear and wanted to be certain I submitted my enterant.

  133. Meniukas says:

    My attempt for this week contest:

  134. Albannach says:

    I saw “Oracle Fist” when I loaded up the page, and loved it so much that I didn’t even bother generating 10 more.

    Here’s my entry (there may be more!)

  135. skybandit says:

    Fie on you chickens who pick and choose amongst the ten names. Use them ALL and make a superhero team out of it! Well, nine team members and their arch-nemesis…

    This team’s called the Super Cosmic Hyper Mega Ultra Celestial Knights, or the S.C.H.M.U.C.K.s. The generated names are in parentheses, as in “Generated Name.”

    “Bash Searcher,” strangely enough, is an alien that searches for somebody to bash. The team leader, he’s the last survivor of the world of Graviton, which Seed Shield destroyed.

    “Death Lion” is a leothrope, or were-lion, shown in all three of his multiple forms. This power lies in his amulet, given to him after he saved the life of an African witch doctor.

    “Terradiviner” is an Earth Elemental who can see and move through the earth itself. A failed suicide possessed by the Sacred Stones at the bottom of the cliff she jumped off of.

    “Kick Blazer” is a French savate master exposed to radioactive fallout in the Pacific.
    The radioactivity he absorbed gives him great speed and is released whenever he strikes.

    “Fire Gal” can’t stop burning, which restricts her social life to invulnerable boyfriends. A former firefighter, she received her powers after surviving a blaze in a chemical plant.

    “Gigantic Shimmer,” the husband of Shrinking Chance, becomes less dense as he grows. Both of them are scientists that were caught in an experimental cyclotron explosion.

    “Shrinking Chance,” the wife of Gigantic Shimmer, grows denser as she shrinks in size. Both of them are scientists that were caught in an experimental cyclotron explosion.

    “Highway Draft” the gadgeteer rides the nuclear powered Motorcyclops she invented.
    She feels great guilt about her husband Netian being mangled while testing a prototype.

    “Netian” is a cyborg that can interface with any computer from a cell-phone to a Cray.
    When his wife Highway Draft replaced part of his brain, he lost the capacity for emotion.

    “Seed Shield” is the teams arch-villainess, an intelligent plant from space. She intends to kill all animal life and make Earth safe for plants, as she’s done to many worlds before.

    So there!

  136. dblade says:

    @skybandit(170): Well played, sir or madam! I am humbly put in my place.

  137. Hunter63 says:

    So what do you guys think of (152)?

  138. Keith_Kanin says:

    @Tarkabarka thanks for that. I noticed as soon as I posted it that it didn’t work right, but I didn’t have time to fix it.

    OK, here they are one final time with the proper names and links.(hopefully)

    Midnight Cleric

    This is Sable, Midnight Cleric. High priestess of the Dragon Queen. In her hand she holds the Queen’s Tail. A 5 headed chain whip seething with dark power. On the horizon, the Dark Queen’s swarm has been summoned. Tremble as they approach. The end is near.

    Android T.A.I.N.T.

    The Android T.A.I.N.T. (Tactical Artificially Intelligent Nerd Terrifier) was once a machine programmed to help mankind. After some nerds hacked it’s programming, something went horribly wrong. The main program was wiped and all that was left was the primary command: Learn, adapt, and become more human. As a function of this programming it tried to literally “become” human.

    Rain Dart

    With the ability to energize and hurl projectiles with a thought, he will “rain” arrows (darts) down upon evil with a vengeance.

    Sorry about the multiple posts, but I am new to this and I want to make sure I get it right. It shouldn’t happen again.

  139. Tarkabarka says:

    So this is my Fifth Entry in the Random – Palooza Contest.

    Galaxy Butterfly – The birth of a Galaxy


  140. Tarkabarka says:

    @Hunter (152)

    Serpent Master. – I love the idea behind this picture a big snake monster attack the town, but i think the volcano is a little bit to more for this picture.

    Turtle Titan. – He he he. – I never think to make any TMNT char for this name. BTW good composition, like a superhero TMNT char. You make a full compositon.

    My only problem the two picture is a little bit tiny for my eyes (I work today more than 14 hour, and my eyes are very dizzy now.) I need a lot time to my eyes focusing for the pictures.

  141. dblade says:

    The Midnight Seer revised (as required by my own HeroMachine tradition and obsession). Softened the jaw colors and darkened the tentacles plus some other minor adjustments.

    Midnight Seer

  142. TOOL says:

    As always the the competitions heat goes up with the number of entry, theres some awesome entries on here, good job all!

  143. TOOL says:

  145. Gene says:

    Ok, next up is Empress of Rock

    When I chose the name, I hadn’t intended to go this route. But here I am.

  146. skybandit says:

    @dblade: Praise from a Master! Thenkyuveddymuch.

  147. skybandit says:

    I couldn’t resist taking a look at the Silly Superhero Name generator:

    Air Democrat
    Chipmunk Shooter
    Professor Booty
    Siege Titmouse
    Sister Lemming

    The choice was obvious: Dreadfart, the Indelible Honk!

  148. enjiner says:

    Next up…

    Jack Vega always expected he’d be the new Blue Jay, after Jay himself retired. But they both forgot to read the fine print when Jay joined the Ultimate Super League. After a vicious copyright lawsuit, Jack hung up his Blue Jay suit – and walked out to fight crime as the Cerulean Crow!

  149. gendonesia says:

    Too bad, My week was full of assignment, so I think this is my only entry..

    Ironia, she used to be a normal girl, but when she’s exposed by iron waste, her body mutated and her skin turn into iron..

    and this is when that disaster (or gift?) happened…

  150. Tarkabarka says:

    So this is my sixth entry in the Random Palooza Contest.

    This is Propheto

    A few ago Propheto was be a superhero, who knows what happens in the future. Now Propheto … so he is resting and relaxing in a …. quiet and peacefull place. The friendly male nurses also help him to relax. He wears very comfortly clothes and he make good and peacefully pictures.

  151. gendonesia says:

    sometimes, i just want to submit “easy pose” and this is it..

    Knive Storm, In daily, he is a Professional Chef. although he use his knive as weapon, he never use it to harm anybody, even super villain won’t feel his knive’s sharpness

  152. dblade says:

    Just for fun, I colorized the Midnight Seer.

    Magenta Midnight Seer:

  153. blaq_aries says:

    my last one and I hope you guys like it, I am a buff for midievil so I go with that in my works ….battle warrior has arrived….

  154. TOOL says:

    @Albannach, I like how you got some of the ice to look.

  155. Hunter63 says:

    Here is War King
    Surprise, surprise hit me like a brick, when I realized this was my TMNT OC’s nickname. Anyways he is the leader of the Black Gator’s, a technology built gang that rules the underground market and is the second most numerous gang (right behind the foot) the second in command is right in front of the War King himself, Alexander, named after Alexander the Great, he to was a victim of the mutagen that mutated the turtles, when the rats and turtles where gone a young sewer croc stepped in it and was mutated himself. After finding a small homeless group in the sewers, he started a gang that would become one of the most feared and most powerful, he himself is not evil but he just wants to be left alone and help those who need it, even if he has his group commit a crime to do it, of course this will cause trouble with the Turtles who find out about these guys after Don not only visits one of their territories on accident, but also nearly dies fighting the beast in his lab before it starts to flood. the area I just described was actually based on a level in the 2007 movie, TMNT game.

    So, what do you guys think of him?

  156. SpellCheckingQuill says:

    More than I’ve ever submitted to a single contest before… but I can’t help it, I love Randompalooza.
    Character/prompt: Iceberg Star
    A promising humanoid species only beginning to discover its potential. Unfortunately, they are also the denizens a doomed world slowly freezing under a dying sun.
    Character/prompt: Blue Haunt
    “When owls call the breathless moon / in the blue veil of the night, / The shadows of the trees appear / amidst the lantern light.” – Mummer’s Dance, by Loreena McKennitt
    Character/prompt: Obsidian Hand
    Cyber cookies for anyone who can figure out the quote *without* popping it into Google Translate.
    Character/prompt: Androhunt
    Taking the word “manhunt” to a whole new level.
    Character/prompt: Gleam Shine
    Oh, I am a terrible, horrible, really bad person.
    Character/prompt: Minute Masher
    There’s no excuse for this one, either. This is just my strange little brain malfunctioning. I’m pretty sure my Scottish ancestors are going to haunt me for this.

    By the way, Jeff, scrolling through the main character contest page, I noticed that we appear to have two Contest #74’s. 🙂

  157. Jeff Hebert says:

    Oops! Thanks SpellCheckingQuill!

  158. SpellCheckingQuill says:

    No problem! By the way, I feel like eight different kinds of idiot right now. My fourth entry’s prompt was Androsnare, not Androhunt. Fail.

    … I need sleep.

  159. Keith_Kanin says:

    The cyborg bounty hunter Hand Shooter.

  160. Hunter63 says:


    Shouldn’t Saturn be smaller and higher up the picture to simulate it’s distance from Earth?


    What do you guys think of my latest character?

  161. Amaranth says:

    Blood Countess
    Burn Dart
    Burn Shield
    Fighter Beast
    Heat Pearl
    Hornet Enchantress
    Rapier Chill
    Smashing Cleric
    Stellar Man

    It was between Blood Countess and Razoria. The latter won in the end:

  162. Kytana says:

    This is a tribute about old horror classic movies.
    Title: The Ghost Spider
    It has no story, its only a big spider who killed by a human and now he revange it on the human race. But it have realistic efects and great horror moments. Inclusive blood scenes and a many woman with backless dresses.
    (In color bur not colorful)

  163. Rapthama says:

    Entry #2 : Bee Lynx

    Deadliest of it’s kind, Bee is an extraordinarily ifted poacher, that stops nothing to achive his goal. His favourite motto is : “Sting like a bee and move like a lynx.”.

  164. unknownblackpaper says:

    The Random name that called to me was Air Slash

    Pretty and girly, but I loved the colors and how well they came out in the image, and after some trial and error, how
    it(hopefully) created the image that she is in the air.

    This character would have the power of flight, and air multiplication. Forcing the air flow to dance gently around her, or aggressively to cut down her foes in her personal squall of terror.

    Feed back welcome but not necessary.

  165. My “spin” was not that great:

    Form Dolphin
    Lucky Tree
    Magic Detonator
    Royal Mouth
    Snake Storm
    Storm Thrower
    Venomous Blaster
    Virus Paw
    Weather Burn

    Been a real burnout week with no slowing down. Here’s a throwaway before I head out for the rest of the weekend.

    Happy Halloween if I don’t have any more entries before the Monday deadline!

    “Lucky Tree”

  166. unknownblackpaper says:

    Oh, sorry. For my spin I had:
    Air Slash
    Apex Woman
    Azure Haunt
    Dart Fist
    Dynamo Giant
    Emotion Fist
    Gale Nullifier
    Hit Tarantula
    Iron Fly
    Mage Chance
    Reptile Finder
    Robot Edge
    Sham Scream
    Topaz Beast

  167. Kytana says:

    @The Atomic Punk: Thanks for this happy moment, i must laugh. 🙂

  168. ams says:

    Here’s my entry for this weeks festivities!


  169. Johnny Gear says:

    One of the names I got was Nebula Rider so I went with that.
    Nebula Rider

  170. Hunter63 says:

    Last Entry

    OC for my TMNT FanFic, Blizzard Soldier, obviously a parody to Deathstroke when it came to design.

  171. Phatchick says:

    Charm Whale is the result of a government experiment to create navy personal who could communicate with and control cetaceans. But she objected to using these gentle creatures for war and disappeared into a pod of orcas. But she and her whale allies can be found helping victims of maritime disasters.
    (Yeah, I know that’s NOT an orca. But it was the best I could do. We really need a dophin or orca companion.)

  172. Myro says:

    Second and last entry:

    Mage Bug

    Everyone laughed when Zanzibar, the Mad Wizard decided to teach a mantis how to cast magic spells. Well, whose laughing now?

  173. @Kytana(213): Danke, I could not think of any characters for the other names. With time running out, that is my only entry this week. I disappear from the internet during football season. ;9

  174. skybandit says:

    I couldn’t get ten more done by Monday, but I got eight by recycling two from the no-PUP thread from earlier this week:

    Random Super Villain names:

    Amp Penetrator (not included)
    Baroness Correction
    Blood Jape
    Count Terror
    Cutting Sorceress

    Prince Embrace

    Random Super-Team names:

    Accursed Antisummoners
    Alliance Of New Mystics
    Pi Faunasuper-villains
    War Host

    So we end up with: the evil Alliance of New Mystics!

    Baroness Correction: The Concubine of the Count and the Mistress of Terror Dungeon.

    Blood Jape: This psycho never stops smiling, because the smile’s painted on his mask!

    Count Terror: Leader of the group, filled with hellfire and brimstone from his Master.

    Cutting Sorceress: Illegitimate sister of the Baroness, supremely skilled in Black Magic.

    Enchantment Spirit: Vizier of the Count. Recycled from the earlier no-PUP thread.

    Howling Chase: The Blackfoot who sold his soul to Satan in exchange for killing Custer.

    Prince Embrace: Golden Ghost of Terror Castle. Also recycled from the no-PUP thread

    Technofist: Alien necromancer capable of telepathic domination or physical destruction.

  175. Watson Bradshaw says:

    Swift Driver

    so this week has been crazy and all I could do is the one randomized name, I recently saw the movie Drive and it did inspire this piece, enjoy.

  176. Jeff Hebert says:

    As you can see, lots of entries this week, so the judging will probably take longer than usual. Submissions are now closed, thanks for playing along, everyone!

  177. dblade says:

    Ah, damn. I just created the best piece ever made and will be made in Hero Machine. Oh well. I guess it will never see the digital light of day. I’m deleting the file and erasing all traces of it. And it’s impossible to duplicate. Such a shame. I wish you all could have seen it. Glorious. 🙁
