Ship Build Personification
« on: September 05, 2015, 06:05:35 am »
There's a really popular Japanese game called Kantai Collection where the developers turned historical battle ships into school girls.

While I was rolling on the ground laughing, I thought about my favorite ship builds in the game and how they might think of me as a pilot if they had a personality.



My disable junker would probably be a sadistic freak who toys with any easy prey they can find. It would express extreme hatred that I use it's sibling the Munker more even though they themself are more versatile and effective at incapacitating enemies.

My Hwatchafish would be probably very insecure due to how it's sibling the Blenderfish used to dominate but slowly gaining self-confidence. They would be grateful that I use it often but try to be as modest about their ability as possible.

My Metamidion would probably be trying their best to act confident and arrogant, all the while secretly insecure about their small hull and armor. They would secretly be terrified of me because of how often I go for rams.

My Metasquid would be the most annoying, hyperactive brat that always needs to be taken care of because something is broken on it. It would hate me because I don't use it often but secretly blame themself because of it's lack of firepower.

My Metagalleon would always be serious and matter-of-fact about whatever it says without regard for others. It would be very open about my mistakes in piloting and be extremely annoyed by the fact that I'm always showering it with praise and admiration.

Well, my metamidion... https://youtu.be/H1zBiB9Ulwc?t=2m20s

Brawler: https://youtu.be/GJoM7V54T-c?t=50s

Any of my spires: https://youtu.be/ey0wvGiAH9g?t=59s - I mean, John Cleese's type

MUNKER: https://youtu.be/8z7SfF5lXMQ?t=0m35s especially 2:20

I'll think of some others when my head is less busy.

Because Monty Python is good

Fun Fact: Same video, but this was somebody's opinion on the Holy Roman Army (former SPQR) during Hepheastus Challenge, then they were in the finals and then they really showed their stuff and were one of the toughest nuts to crack: https://youtu.be/tgj3nZWtOfA?t=1m46s

I told you there were good anonymous, I did, I did!

Brawl Spires would be super skittish, but have like a secret sadistic side that emerges when you make them mad, with little regard for their own health.  "NO REPAIRS, NO COWARDS!"

Sniper Spires would be like a super duper chilled out, serious person that is dedicated to the craft of H.Flak kills from 2km.

Mobulas would be sort of matronly and pillow-y soft personality, belying it's inherent capability, at least until you threaten it or it's allies, where it then bombards you with explosives verbal abuse and flaming cannonballs wooden spoons.

Either that, or a shy person with tons of potential.

Except Daniel's Mobula, it'd have a super inflated ego.
