Shame to hear about that. How old was he?

@  RedG : (06 December 2019 - 06:04 PM)

Sorry to hear, Wulfsbane. My condolences.

@  Wulfsbane : (05 December 2019 - 10:43 PM)

@  Wulfsbane : (28 November 2019 - 07:14 PM)

This year's Thanksgiving was a lot tougher than normal.

@  Wulfsbane : (28 November 2019 - 07:14 PM)

Same to you.

@  RedAuthar : (28 November 2019 - 03:47 PM)

Happy American Turkey Day

@  Wulfsbane : (05 October 2019 - 11:05 PM)

Well the player base went up exponentially since the switch.

@  wildfire : (05 October 2019 - 08:39 PM)

Probably to help Bungie now that Activision's money isn't backing them.

@  Wulfsbane : (03 October 2019 - 06:33 AM)

Destiny made the move to Steam.

@  Wulfsbane : (09 September 2019 - 10:12 AM)

We'll probably see Tracer soon

@  Shadow : (06 September 2019 - 10:48 PM)

I'd rather see Mai in Smash

@  Wulfsbane : (06 September 2019 - 09:05 AM)

I'm more surprised about the Fatal Fury character.

@  Wulfsbane : (06 September 2019 - 08:00 AM)

Really wasn't keen on the idea of Sans being playable, but I guess he's in the same vein as Ness/Lucas

@  Wulfsbane : (06 September 2019 - 08:00 AM)

I think it works.

@  GamemasterAn... : (05 September 2019 - 06:53 AM)

So...Sans is a Mii Gunner costume for Smash. Comments?

What if Rotor Walrus were killed in a Sonic comic book? Would it darken the comic book series?

Odd. Why is it that Rotor is always the one whenever the topic of Freedom Fighter deaths comes up? It's like everyone is harboring some kind of vendetta against him.

Rotor brings the least to the table in the comics. Sally, NICOLE, and Tails all have the tech head/mechanic/computer role. He's the easiest to chop without breaking up the dynamic.

That said, because of it not greatly affecting the team dynamic, this also makes him the worst to cut as it has no major loss. Sure the characters would be upset, but it wouldn't be as jarring as when Sally or Antione "died". And since Rotor has been mostly behind scenes lately, even after the reboot, it wouldn't have quite as big impact on the fans.

So would it make it darker? Depends on how it would pan out. Just to outright kill him would belittling of the character. It needs to be either a tragic loss or a noble sacrifice. His death has to have meaning, otherwise it comes off Shadow the Hedgehog Dark and not Empire Strikes Back Dark.

I've told you, "what if" threads like this do not make for good discussion. I have never seen one that went anywhere.

"What If" threads could still work if there's something interesting worth discussing about it. If the question asked were a bit more specific than it would be a debate worth having.

Tails would take his place and nothing important would be lost.

There's still the dilemma with Tundra to consider, though.

I'd miss the walrus, that's for sure.  If writers focused more on Rotor, I doubt his role would seem insignificant along with the other FFs.  Currently, I think his death would make things dark if it was done in the right manner and I believe the best way is for it to affect the other FFs more than the reader's own emotions.  Losing a close comrade (both friend and soldier) weighs heavily on a person's shoulders, so you can believe that his death would affect the other FFs.  If you tied his death due to the action (or inaction) of a major character (Sonic/Tails), that death will probably be a major blow.

 

TBH, though, why would you want to kill Rotor?  I love the guy, and I wish he was given more spotlight.

I guess it's because most people see him as a pointless addition now that Tails is recognized as the "official" mechanic (even though he's more of a pilot). Nevertheless, it's still a pretty harsh reason to have him killed. I mean, you don't see people wanting to kill Cream because she happens to be another little kid that can fly. Is it that bad to have two genius inventors on a team?

 

As for Rotor having more spotlight, something tells me that there might be more to come between him and his abusive father (should the comics ever resume).

I've figured out what bugs me about these what-if topics: the OP never participates in them. They just drop the what-if and leave without ever offering their own take on it. We don't even know if they bother to keep track of the thread.

So basically we are all being baited into discussing these what-ifs while the op just sits back and munches on popcorn.

Yeah this guy seems to drop in randomly, makes said topic, and leave. i dunno if he's watching or not or perhaps collecting our responses for something.

 

It irks me too

Come on, let's not get into a fight about people's logic.  Kef has a point that the op never replied to his other post, but Red also has a point in that it has only been around a week since the op posted this topic.  All that we can do now is wait and see.  If the guy posts another topic and does the same thing, then Kef's suspisians could be valid.

Both sides have valid points. This guy made one other topic and made no effort to continue or add to the discussion. Yet this is only a few days old so who knows.

 

It would be a lot better if OP participates. Dropping in to make a topic and then leave without participating kinda irks me

Give it a couple more days.  If the op makes another post, then you might want to send him a message.
