We haven't done a "random name" character contest in six months, 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.
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!
It would also be fun to post your list of ten when you get them, just for grins.
I'll pick my personal favorites when the week is over, with the one I like best being featured in the right column for the week. The rules otherwise are the same as always:
No limit on entries this week, so knock yourselves out. Just make them good!
Here’s my list. I’m kind of partial to Scream Child.
Going for Crimson Shifter and/or Icicle Wings.
I made this picture few month ago. But now i don’t know to have time to make entries for this contest. My back problem is coming back, and i really don’t sit a lot in a row.
I like Archshade, and Kick Assasin.
I like Armor Prophet and Cleric Bomber a lot
Fire Caster and Ice Wave sound good.
Some good ones here…
I think I can work with these and look forward to it
Think I’m gonna go for Bronzeclad.
Couple of possibilities…Robot Fish is calling me
Emerald Enchantress and Nemesis Man sound pretty good, but I definitely like the idea of Eat Detonator, I can see something explosive coming from that one.
My set of ten random names was:
And here is the image I came up with. The Sea Hand is a powerful water witch, who can bring the ocean suddenly down on anyone approaching her island home even when the sea seems to be calm and peacefull.
Lynx Panther and Wolf Spook sound funny, too. Might give them a try later…
Here’s Bronzeclad! It’s funny. I had an idea for a similar superhero named “Midas.” He has metal arms that he uses to fight crime. http://i1164.photobucket.com/albums/q565/theconq/William-Bronzeclad.png
He is just over two inches long. He lives in a pink and yellow castle. His best friend is a ceramic skull named Silent Phillip. He is one of the criminal world’s greatest masterminds. He is…Robot Fish!
I like Droid Piercer, Snow Wing, Night Cinder,Cat Priest and Haunt Warrior…hope I get a chance to do at least one. Inventory at work this week so might not have a lot of time. Good luck to all!
Quite a few of these sound cool. I hope to do multiple entries.
Wave Thrust ***
Metal Joker : http://s1288.beta.photobucket.com/user/Eddie_Dragonborn/media/Eddie-MetalJoker.jpg.html
Animal Bloom – like an algae bloom, but with animals
Beam Mentalist – could work with that
Computer Maw – someone with a computer for a mouth, or a computer that has a mouth?
Cosmic Cleric – possibly awesome
Highway Visionary – urban planner extraordinaire
Insect Spike – the vampire, with antennae
Lucky Joker – I think I’ve already made several pictures of this guy …
Plant Bee – a new level of adaptation
Rapid Shifter – also possibly awesome
Wasp Hornet – is it a Wasp or is it a Hornet? Will YOU get close enough to find out?
I’m at work now, and I can’t access the name generator because the system is blocking it, but I note that Hyperion is showing up amongst the generated names, so I figured I could at least do something tonight to save someone a web search:
Of course, the time saved will be eaten up in wading through this site, but it might inspire something.
Short version: Hyperion was a Titan in Greek mythology.
I’ve heard and read (see, among other things, Hyperion by Dan Simmons, and Marvel’s Hyperion character from the Squadron Sinister/Supreme) the name before, but never quite understood the reference.
This was Venomous Barroness
Robot Fish is brilliant! Great thinking outside the fish bowl!
2nd roll, probably will try to make one each day this week. Wait for allot of comments
I really don’t know if I can create any entry for this contest [terrible working period =_=] but I will try…
And this is my Random List!
…transbee… TRANSBEE??? O_O
… and yeah i am back(when you miss me)
I definitely missed you!
Bane Trace, inter-dimensional warlord
Brain Fist, disembodied brain
Pelt Scimitar, super-heroine
Fish Spike, a sea monster
Holy Bomber, fanatic acolyte
The team of Lynx Gut and Cat Edge
Smash Cascade: Dragons versus Dragon Ships
Terratrickster, Pelt Scimitar’s nemesis
Vibe Murderer, alien invader
I really can’t get Emotion Viper out of my head. It’s the most amazing name ever, but I can’t quite figure out what to do with it. Fish Bug is good, too. Pawvore?
He hides in flowers, behind him as he runs flowers bloom for he is bloom lizard
She leaves change in her wake either money or metaphysical alterations, She is Change Swimmer
He just doesn’t like guns he is Gun Cancellor:
I try my best and take the stone assasin.
i went with Armored Shade
This one makes me wish HM had cuffed Safari shorts:
I’m kinda very proud of this one:
I like how this one turned out! Back story in the Canis System, a young orphan met up with an Elemental wolf. Time skip 10 years
and the boy has undergone a number Cybernetic replacements.
I give you Bolt Wolf:
The young daughter of the Native American’s god Raven
I think this has a very reaper esk quality to it.
Here’s my list:
I chose 70’s hero Electrocannon. Nothing says 70’s like a hairy chest, thigh-high boots, and high-neck collar. And what in the world is that…does he have a gun for an arm…that’s unbelievable!
Here’s another from my list: Robot Driver
A rich philanthropist superhero reprograms a robot from the future into his personal assistant.
Last one: The Emo-villian, Amethyst Master!
Robostabber! (need I say more?)
Here was my list…
I chose Axe Chopping…
Originally to be a Smartypants but I’m actually quite proud of this one….
Axe Chopping…. Psychic Lumberjack and his possessed Axe Choppy
From this list:
Here’s Amethyst Conjurer
And Tempest Dolphin
The day her old life was flushed away, her new life began. Rescued by a cockroach known only as Andre, her beautiful scales fortified, her delicate fins replaced by razor sharp metal, she became the world’s first tropical fish assassin. Now sharing a tiny multi-coloured treasure chest with a crab named Brent, she awaits Andre’s orders. She is as deadly as she is beautiful. She is Robot Fish 2.0
Here’s another one from my list….
A man who must keep his eyes covered, for his gaze can summon up frigid storms. He is… Blizzard Vision.
Robot Fish 3
Before the assimilation of his tank, Murray’s dream was to play in the NFL. Now his designation is 7 of 3.6 million. Refishtance is futile…
Well… I hope to make more of them, but my time for creating is very short… T_T
So, there are my first two:
OK, the first one for this round: Crimson Gal, the sidekick of Golden Age superhero the Crimson Avenger, who I just invented. I tried to give her a kind of 1940’s look:
Also and old one. And also find the name in the Seventh Sanctum.
Really old, i made for when i use the Tarkabarka.
Next up is Steel Slice. He’s a modern day superpowered samurai, who uses a mystical sword that can cut through anything. Here, he’s taken out an enemy chopper with only his blade:
Here’s another one… Not as proud of this one but still for smartypantsing reasons…
I chose Cyfortune
Love the whole series.
I chose the first one from my list:
I chose to do this one first: Cut Hornet!!!
Another from my list: Vermillionia
The elf goddess who oversees the passage of summer into autumn, and of life into death.
Here is my first entry.
Atop his faithful mount Percival, the mighty hero Tiny Axe metes out justice to evildoers everywhere!
My next, maybe last entry is incomplete. Something went screwy when I tried to do something with the backgrounds and I couldn’t seem to edit it anymore. Don’t worry, Jeff, those glitches are very rare in Hero Machine these days! 🙂
Anyway, it was just a funny one I put out there, so it wasn’t a serious contender. So, please imagine a nice background and funny word balloon… 🙂 It’s “Blessed Wasp,” a name so goofy I had to do something with it:
I got a bunch, but i lost the list, it included:
and some others I forget.
I did Imperial Sting
Another from my list. Lass? Really? Did a sort of ’40s Scottish Pin Up vibe. Lass?
The ultimate terror weapon
A few of these sparked instant ideas.
Hit Eagle. Simple, but fun.
Pyrohawk may just be one of the coolest name combos ever.
Sonicascade was really fun to create. Might be my best scene picture.
Tried going for Mechashadow, but I couldn’t get my idea right.
Thanks to all the people who helped confirm what I thought on OCD, I have taken their advice and moved the color down the legs!
From this list….
I chose Tempusscreamer
Attack Track: “Bad, Mr. Whiskers! No outside for you anymore!”
In the year 384583466, the mission to Ghy44 discovered life not smart enough to hide from humanity. Veb, our xenobiologist, said it looked like one of the machines used in Earth’s distant past. A ‘Cat.’ He also said the local fauna tend to have blue hides and green eyes because of their cyanide-based metabolism. He dubbed it ‘the Cyan Cat,’ and said it likes caves like this one very much. Seven metric tons or so.
Joke Trace: One sick clown
Here is my second entry.
Entry #1 (at last):
Fire Caster: http://www.heromachine.com/wp-content/legacy/forum-image-uploads/trekkie/2012/11/Trekkie-FireCaster.png
My entry: Marine Eagle
Sergeant Aquila of Marine Corps was one of the most brilliant scout and assassin during the war in the Pacific during World War II. He became the terror of the Japanese, the shadow of the jungle, the hawk swooping down on its prey, the eagle symbol of American power.
Title: Stone assasin sketch
I want it dark so in color it isnt good.
Here is my third entry.
An Intergalactic Bounty Hunter I present
A Human/Feline hybrid Cleric
Ice Wave: http://www.heromachine.com/wp-content/legacy/forum-image-uploads/trekkie/2012/11/Trekkie-IceWave.png
Celestial Smasher – cosmic bad guy
I’m leaning towards Nuke Deluder…
