Character Design Challenge #335: Secret Agent Man

Ok guys, your mission this week (should you choose to accept it) is to create a master of espionage and at least 3 top secret gadgets that they would use. You must include all 3 gadgets in the same picture as your spy and, if possible, show them in use.

Rules for posts, contests, and challenges: Original characters only, no copyrighted characters, no characters based on copyrighted characters, no characters based on RPG’s or other games. The characters must be your own design and not based on any character that might be copyrighted in any way. Please keep all submissions PG13: full or partial nudity is prohibited. I have the right to delete any post that I believe crosses this line without warning. Only post characters that have been created solely using Hero Machine, and that you know for certain have never been entered in a contest before. If you aren’t certain, don’t enter it, because I’m not going to go back through all of the contests and check.

All entries must be in JPG or PNG form (BMPs are too big), posted to a publicly accessible website (like the HeroMachine :,ImageShackDeviantArt, or whatever - Please do not use Photobucket);

  • Entries must be made as a comment or comments to this post, containing a link directly to the image and the character name;
  • Please name your filesas [your name]-[character name].[file extension] before you upload it. 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). *

This contest will close on Sunday, September 3rd at 9:00am Eastern.

    Agent Charles Rebew.
    1. Camouflage tie. The tie allows him and anything he is wearing to blend in to his surroundings
    2. Energy gun. Shoots bolts of pure energy.
    3. Cybernetic eye. Allows him to scan people, and to see through walls.

    Agent Alpha
    She has the ability to communicate with all animals and bond with them. She sees what they see, hears what they hear, smells what they smell. She uses this ability to spy on her targets and gain vital information for the United States government. She is an expert marksman, gifted computer tech, and has studied all forms of martial arts.

  3. gjc6664 says:

    I realized that I forgot to put the patterns on my secret agent. Here he is with more effective camouflage. The outline is just in the picture to show where he is. The blue energy bolt and the red eye are to show the other two gadgets in action. The bad pattern on the shoes is because it is the closest I could get.

  4. gjc6664 says:

    What are your gadgets?

  5. William Peterson says:

    I *think* Agent Alpha is using Animals, instead of gadgets, but if so, that fact is not explained very well…

  6. Rick Blair says:

    Sorry. I did forget the gadgets info. The item on her right arm is a small monitor that she uses to take photos or video of the things her animal friends see. The item on her left arm are darts, each one used for a specific purpose. She has an arsenal of darts that do everything from sonics to sleeping gas and everything in between, similar to the arrows used by certain famous archers. Her third gadget is the lenses built into her mask which allow her to see clearly even in complete darkness. The animals are simply tools she uses to aid her with her missions.

    Dad Agent
    This agent in particular is Dad Agent 10 Kirjuta Rumalus. Dab Agents are time traveling agents that seek out and stop any anomaly that might change the timeline. Dab Agents are equipped with cybernetic enhancements that give them numerous gadgets. First off are the Ujuk Boots which allow the user faster speed and the ability to fly. Next are the Scan Specs which help scan and target the anomaly the agent is screeching as well as accesses local information and selection form their Meme Inventory oh yeah did I forget to mention Dab Agents have to ability to access abilities form various Memes of the past present and future though a agent can only carry a certain number of memes at a time. They select a meme to use and its ability is transferred to the user this allows for the agent many different options in battle. The last and most important item is the Aeg Guantlet which allows the Agent to travel trough time. All these allow the agent to be a threat to anyone or thing that threatens time.

    Taher Hazred, AKA The Persian, Agent of The Ministry of Intelligence of the Islamic Republic of Iran (MOIS)
    1) Armoured adaptive garment: The Persian wears a form-fitting black bodysuit, equipped with a holographic device capable of giving him the appearance of wearing virtually any outfit. The holograms are not always convincing at close range, but allow him to blend into most crowds. The suit itself is not bulletproof, but still offers some ballistic protection and is effectively stab-proof. The technology was developed by the Ministry in cooperation with a private Mexican corporation seeking to create lifelike holograms. Efforts have been made to create a suit capable of altering the wearer’s entire appearance, but the holographic technology is not yet of sufficient quality to achieve this… although there are those who rumour that the technology HAS been perfected, and that The Persian is not as he appears.
    2) Ocular computer: Comparable to a highly advanced version of Google Glass which actually works. Rather than being operated by highly conspicuous head movements, the device tracks the red optical implant covering Hazred’s left iris, allowing him to silently navigate through records and databases at any given time. The device is also equipped with facial scanning, although the sensor, located on the right edge, makes the device somewhat more obvious than is desirable. The technology was stolen from a joint German-Japanese project.
    3) Temporal relay: The Persian’s most notable and important gadget is a wrist-mounted device allowing him to communicate with himself. Through a combination of quantum computing and temporal shift, he can transmit messages, warnings, and information to himself five minutes in the past or future. Despite its frequent use, the technology is top secret, resulting in The Persian having a reputation for never making the slightest mistake and for seemingly being precognitive. The Ministry officially claims that the principles behind the technology were discovered in the development of Iran’s nuclear program. In truth, the device itself was created in its complete and present form in a research facility in the European nation of Taured… a country which now appears never to have existed.

    I won’t be entering, but the page image was a nice SURPRISE!

    I like your user picture! I’m an Undertale fan too!

    I hope this link works… Sorry if it doesn’t… file:///C:/Users/madir/AppData/Local/Packages/microsoft.microsoftedge_8wekyb3d8bbwe/AC/#!001/MicrosoftEdge/User/Default/WebNotes/Microsoft-Edge-Web-Notes-HeroMachi192519796.html

    Agent Fawx:
    1- Anti-gravity boots. They allow the user to walk on ceilings, whatever surface.
    2- Dart gun. Shoots darts with different types of poison and gasses. Most commonly used darts are tranquilizer darts.
    3- Stun bracelets. They shoot little electric bolts that can stun enemies.
    She also has a utility belt, but that’s more of an accessory than a gadget…

  11. Madison says:

    This is my first art competition, so I’m excited! I won’t be too disappointed if I don’t win, though. I’m only twelve, so I still have plenty of room for improvement… Thank you though for giving me an opportunity!

  12. William Peterson says:

    Madison, you need to post to a web host, then post the link here…
    What you have there is a link to a file on YOUR computer, which we would probably have to sign into to gain access! Take another look at the instructions, and you should be okay…

  13. gjc6664 says:

    @Madison: In Hero Machine, get your character open, make sure it is saved. Click export to download it. Save the file as “Madison-(enter character name here).” Then, go to the Hero Machine Forums. Under the art gallery, start a new thread. Upload your character to this thread with a little bit of text explaining it. Click on the picture in a new tab, and copy and paste the link into your post on this challenge.
    If anyone notices that I left out any steps, let me know.

    Thanks! I have an Undertale AU blog on Tumblr:

  15. Synnburn says:

    Agent 129, expert in non lethal extraction. Uses flight suit with propulsion shoes. Taser gloves to stun targets with touch or long range (referred to as the “Zap Clap”). and standard issue Comm Glasses allowing Agent 129 to communicate with HQ and receive vital data dumps.

  16. Herr D says:

    Known as Silent Sal, she doesn’t need to speak to get the job done. Purse bomb disposal, heel dart gun, compact gunsight (500x magnifier, doubles as microfilm reader.)

  17. Madison says:

    Thanks for your help! But with the parental controls, I guess I can’t do this… Unless this works…

  18. JR19759 says:

    Ok guys, this weeks contest is over. Madison & Christi S, I couldn’t actually see either of your entries, so unfortunately, you guys are out. Results will be up shortly.

  19. WillyPete says:

    Madison, WHAT part of RTFM did you not understand? 😀
    Google Docs will not let you share with people who aren’t logged in!
    Log into HeroMachine, post it in the correct thread (as described), and try again.
    Even if it’s too late for you to win, we’d kind of like to see what we missed…
    Good Luck!
    {Cleaned up, “RTFM” stands for Read The Freaking Manual…}

  20. WillyPete says:

    Christi, I’d love to see yours, too…
    But, you posted to PhotoBucket, which has decided to shoot themselves in the foot by demanding I upgrade to allow 3rd party hosting, for some reason or another…
    PLEASE, follow the instructions as given, and try again.
    It’s not like you’re going to miss out on the Grand Prize, or anything… 😀

    Christi S:
    Meet Agent Couture, the most on-fleek spook in the biz!

  21. Madison says:


    As I mentioned earlier, PARENTAL CONTROLS. And for some reason, it wouldn’t send me a confirmation email. Maybe I could do it on a blog? I think I can put it up on Tuesday when I’m at school… Sorry.
