Aparoid King Wolf by TimeTravelerEon Aparoid King Wolf by TimeTravelerEon
Wolf would shoot me if he saw this. ^^; This was a crazy idea I had after watching a playthrough of the Aparoid Pigma battle on StarFox: Assault. If you didn't think Command was part of the official storyline due to the various story paths and endings, you might find this interesting.

OK, remember how Wolf's fate was unknown after he and the rest of StarWolf sacrificed themselves so StarFox could get to the Aparoid Queen? (We all know he's still alive, but it's not exactly canonical.) Well, here's a bit of an idea I had.

Wolf and his team survived the attack and the destruction of the Aparoid homeworld and wandered around the remains of the planet. It turned out to be a VERY bad idea, though--part of the Queen separated from the main body and mutated, becoming immune to the self-destruct program designed by Beltino (in other words, when the Queen went kaboom due to the apoptosis, this little part didn't). About a month after the planet was destroyed, it tracked down Wolf and merged with him, using his body as a host so the Queen could regenerate. A month after his initial infection, the Queen took over his body, changing him into the Aparoid King Wolf, a gargantuan, half-cybernetic version of himself that was immune to self-destruct programs like the one Beltino designed because he was still partially organic.

See how the lower half of his body seems connected to something? It's like a cage that houses and protects the Queen's core. It's fixed to the ground, but he can rotate his body so he always faces his opponent. The wings? If he folds them in front of his body, they form a powerful shield. (They look like crap 'cuz I was lazy. Sue me.) Aparoid King Wolf has three weak points on his body: the crystal on his collar (don't ask why he retained the collar; I guess the Queen didn't want him to be naked...:eyes:), the crystal in his chest, and the main core. Damaging the crystal in his chest or collar doesn't do as much damage, but it only harms the Queen, not him. However, damaging the core does much more damage because it hurts him AND the Queen, because his real body is inside the core!

I'm working on editing some of Wolf's voice clips from Brawl to make him sound more like an Aparoid (with a slightly "bionic" voice). They're pretty good in my opinion, but I'm not used to working with the program I use (WavePad Sound Editor) yet, so if I get the hang of it, it'll sound way better.

Wow, another Aparoid Fan. I agree that the Aparoids are just so cool, and one of the best parts of the Star Fox series. Nice job on Wolf's Infected state, though I am not a fan of the wings being bat-like. Since the Aparoids are insectoid in nature, the wings should probably be more fly or moth like in appearance.

By the way, it looks like he's attached to something bigger at the bottom. May I ask what that other thing he is attached to is?

This is actually pretty old, so I might end up redrawing it soon with different wings.  The wings came to mind cuz of the final boss of Kingdom Hearts II, tbh.

And the bottom half of Wolf's body is based loosely on the shell that housed the core of the Aparoid Queen in the first part of the fight, locked into the 'floor' where he resides.

Understood. Well I still think the rest looks good though.

Sorry about the double post, but I had to fave this again since DA's strangely erased some of my favorites from my gallery. >.>

Computer glitches are so stupid.

XD I wish that was the case for me. I have around 140 messages.

It's kind of my fault because I don't delete a lot new deviations. ^^;
