Now that Naugus has his powers back...

Postby Spectre the Hechidnat » Sat Aug 01, 2015 12:22 pm

So with the recent reveal of Naugus' nu252 design, I got to thinking-in the event that Naugus gets his powers back, how are the Freedom Fighters going to deal with him?

Here's my thinking: Naugus has magical abilities, something that no one in the current roster of Freedom Fighters can really say beyond Sonic's abilities with the Chaos Emeralds and Amy's hammer. Back in the old reality it seemed like Naugus only ever got defeated by his own stupidity or some deus ex machina that no longer exists in the new reality: the Sword of Acorns, Nate's enormous Power Ring cache, Mammoth Mogul, or the Sword of Light. The only exception that really comes to mind is how the Secret Freedom Fighters-minus Larry-managed to stop him, but they had an enhanced Metal Sonic and Silver on their side, and they probably wouldn't have stopped him had it not been for the fact he was relying on a scheme involving Vale's bones, which Shard proceeded to vaporize.

Now, granted, Naugus' abilities may not be exactly the same in the new reality as they were in the old ones, and Robotnik apparently figured out a way to dump him into the Special Zone despite his powers. But even that was just a temporary measure; what happens when the only option is to fight Archie's now sole dark wizard?

Only because he got out when the Freedom Fighters were rescuing King Acorn from the same thing. There isn't really any telling whether or not he could escape again unless he had some other outside help.

SDCC. I've had it on a standby tab for 10 days in case it needed to be shown again.

I've never liked Naugus' design that much, but this is an improvement. It's still not great, but it's not bad either.

Im not sure if the tail makes him look weird or not.

On one hand it looks okay, on the other it looks... eh...

That aside.

I thought that the Naugus story that was going pre-worlds collide was really good and im wondering what he'll do in the future.

I kinda like Naugus's silly wizard hat. I hope he wears that more often than not.

Oh, I'm sorry. I didn't realize we had a Lord of the Rings crossover coming up next. :(hearty laughter):

Seriously, though, it looks simple but silly, which is good for Sonic.

Awesome, I actually really like it. Even the wizard hat.
I remember them saying they revealed a new look for Naugus but I never could find a pic of it (I think I remember seeing only one or two pics that were taken from the panel).

I'm more fond of the old design. This one looks too much of a stereotypical wizard for my liking but perhaps I can grow accustomed to this one.

Are you saying Naugus isn't a stereotypical wizard?

He looks exactly the same, with a new robe and hat. :|

Wonder if we'll get a new explanation for how he became king?
