    Anyway,s why not just have Fang kill Rouge? Ge's obviously the better character.<!--QuoteEnd--></div><!--QuoteEEnd-->

    Yeeeah. That is slipping into Shadow the Hedgehog territory. Fang is NOT angst. He may be "evil," but he's not puppy kicker evil. Think about that for a second. The first thing the younger sonic fans experience of Fang is killing Rouge in cold blood? A comedic villian? Compare to Team Rocket again. What if Jessie, James, and Meowth come back after an imaginary hiatus and the first thing they do is shoot <a href="http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Dawn_(anime)" target="_blank">Dawn</a> to death with AK-47s, drown Pikachu, set fire to Ash's current hat and kick him in the shins while showing Ash on a video screen that they sold May and Misty to a pokeslave trade over and over again. JESSIE, JAMES, AND MEOWTH.


    In short the whole thing would soil the character.

    Who said it had to be in cold blood? There could be a hefty bounty on her head that he'd do it for.

I like what the comic has done with them, considering characters like Bean and Bark were one shots and they've been fleshed out pretty nicely, but would they be the same way in newer games? I'm sure Sega doesn't have any restrictions on picking and choosing elements from the comic, since they own the rights to all of it. Maybe if the fan base associates the comic personalities enough they would if they were to make a come back.<!--QuoteEnd--></div><!--QuoteEEnd-->

    While not as developed as the comic versions they certainly expresses some similar basic traits abiding by their 'pantomime' acting. Fang was still a bumbling minor villain in Triple Trouble (hammy evil laugh, blown up by his own devices, corny western-esque theme tune) while Bean was a daffy Cloud Cuckoo Lander in Fighters (manic expressions, poses for the camera, throws huge tantrums when losing), Bark is anyone's guess however hense maybe why the comic's version is silent dumb muscle.

    They may not end up completely the same but they do have a similar premise. That said that doesn't mean they would be the same when reintroduced (Vector for example comes off as a rather different character abiding by his Chaotix sprites).

    He was? I didn't know this, but the description you gave makes sense.

    Wait, Cloud Cuckoo Lander as in the villains from Tails Adventure?

    Actually yes. I heard he was a concept from the fusion of these guys and the main characters of Dynamite Dux. Truly a character I'd love to return, since he had far more potential than the rest of these new guys that show up. Bark wasn't bad either imo, but he really doesn't fit anywhere outside of Fighters :/

    My thoughts on your posting Member
    If they brought Nack back, it'd be cool if it was in a Tails Adventure-style game. He wouldn't be able to spin dash or do a spin attack, but maybe he could have the little pop gun he had from Fighters. I'm not sure where the gadgets would come in, but you could always have the regular cast pop in as bosses so you can take their stuff when you beat them. Like Sonic's shoes, Amy's hammer, etc.)

    Basically sort of like Sega's version of Wario, but more competent, smarter, and doesn't have his own minigame collection.

    Cloudcuckoolander is a description from TVTropes given to characers that behave in odd, strange and incongruent ways. From the Crash Bandicoot level Cloudcuckoo Land.

    Trapped in my own thoughts.
    Two stageplays, a screenplay, and an album
    Fang needs his own Saturday morning cartoon. Lots of slapstick, quite goofy. Almost entirely new cast of characters, only occasional cameo from Sonic and co.

    Crash Bandicoot? Must have been one of the PSX ones because I only remember the Banjo-Tooie level.

    If Nack had a cartoon, it could be something completely different if Sonic and the others didn't appear, you know?
