Once upon a time, a doctor toiled away on a secret experiment in his lab. It was midnight.
Outside, the town clock struck twelve and seemed to echo even into the depths of the bunker-like lab. Lightning ripped through the sky and cracked trees in half.
But the good doctor didn’t seem to notice. He hadn’t spent all that time knee dump in garbage at the dump for nothing.
His garbage dump finds–which smelled like rotten fish–included thousands of games that littered the lab. His humpbacked and bucktoothed old assistant, Igor, had scattered old school consoles of every kind on the floor. It was a wonder anyone could work in that space.
The doctor fused parts together with crazy glue. He was going to use his creation to help mankind. Or at least that’s how he rationalized the work.
“This is good, goooood. Soon I will unleash my creature upon the world, and it will never be the same. I’m going to change the world forever. Muhahahahah!”
He rubbed his long and stained hands together with so much excitement that they almost caught fire. Then he unleashed a terrible cackle that would have sent chills up the spine of any human being.
The mad doctor leaned forward and flipped a red candy-like button with both hands, breaking a sweat.
The electricity caused the doctor’s hair to frizz, burn and smoke. He stared intensely as his creature began to rise from the table.
“It’s alive!” He screamed louder than a banshee.
The creature possessed a strange mix of abilities.
- Electricity surged through it’s body like Pikachu. Nothing could touch it without getting fried.
- It drove around in Bowser’s kart and shot out red shells.
- Pedestrians walk but the creature flew around on Ratchet’s hover boots.
- It wore a fine, hand tailored Italian suit–with the Nanotech upgrade from Crysis.
- It had the sneaky skills of Sly Cooper.
- It had a carboard box to hide in when enemies were around the corner.
- It had the luck of Master Chief, as well as Cortana for a guide.
- It could copy the super powers of others just like Kirby.
- Like Nathan Drake, it could sniff out treasure in every nook. I mean, the creature has to support itself somehow, right?
- The rapping skills of Parappa the Rapper, just in case it ever got into a wild rap battle.
The good/mad doctor leaned in close, his eyes sparkling like diamonds as the creature moved its mouth. It started to form a word. It said…
To be continued…
What would your Frankengame character look like? What strange mix of powers would it have?

Loving this, it’s hilarious! I can see him doing that in my mind!
My frankengame would look like this:
The amazing moustache of Wario, together with his greed. The assassination skills of Hitman. The body of Tingle in the Varia suit. Riding Bowser’s Clown Car. The cunning mind of Robotnik (yeah, you heard me, no Eggman here). Having the legs of Sonic. The personality of Little Mac. Wielding the Magic Wand from Wario: Master of Disguise.
He’d be called: Frankendork the 3rd, but name himself Phoenix after an existential crisis, after which he feels reborn.

Nice! I wish I had thought of the Wario mustache.
I love that he’s the “3rd.” I guess I’ll have to be on the lookout for Frankendork and his three relatives.

Love the addition of Parappa.
I keep thinking old school. The whip of Simon Belmont, the destiny of Link, the car from Blaster Mater, weapon stealing ability of Mega Man, and the appetite of Pac-Man. Not sure about the name.
Yeah, we often talk about random battles in role playing games. What if there were random “rap battles”? You never know. Also it’s a good way to keep things fresh.
Mega Link-Man? 🙂 That’s a good selection of traits and characters but names are tough.
If it was just two characters then it’d be easy, but going beyond that is stuff. Tempted to just slap a mundane name on him like ‘Lucy’ or ‘Scott’.

I like Lucy because it’s kind of ironic for such a tough monster haha. Plus a mundane name adds a degree of humanity to the character; one almost feels for her and wants to know her story.
One has figure some character names were mundane and basic at first. Mario and Simon come to mind.
Exactly! I think we’re on to something here. This could be the next big game.
Be fun to play a game where you can make amalgams of classic characters.
Yeah it would be great!
