  3. Zebebuth-R (Empowered) Strength Level

    This. While our datafiles may seem "official" in the way they are presented/written, some specifics on things may or may not be based on the situation of the story, rather than official source numbers. Unfortunately, a lot of information from "official" sources are just as much guess work based on other information from other sources or their appearances. IE we can guess how strong Powered Zerebubuth is based on info from normal Zerebubuth. It may not be 100% accurate, but it's likely the closest safe bet. So when we introduced him to our fanfiction ( long before the book/DF translations), we likely assumed that he got an overall power up across the board. And technically, we aren't incorrect, though the newest source material does not state anything about physical power, so the design may have just got new weapons. Even the "strength of 15 men" is almost irrelevant in terms of measurement until we are given a baseline for what Chronos considers "the strength of 1 man"

    Thanks. I thought it didn’t sound right but thought it best to run it by the forum.
  5. Zebebuth-R (Empowered) Strength Level

    Hard to believe. Zerbebuth was presented as the first Hyper-Zoanoid, and strength for strength definitely was inferior to the Guyver. In Zerebuth's first appearance, his physical strength is stated to be three times that of Gregole, ie 45 times that of an ordinary human; less than half that of the Guyver. Would his upgrade have more than doubled his strength? His upgraded form focused on special weapons, and the one time we saw him in action in the anime this consumed so much power he couldn't sustain their use for more than maybe a minute. Even Derzerb, a more advanced Hyper-Zoanoid specifically designed for physical strength by the greatest specialist, larger and heavier than Zerbebuth, at 60 times the strength of an ordinary person was notably weaker than the Guyver. The Warrior-guyver fanfic and a Deviantart account make for poor sources.
  6. Zebebuth-R (Empowered) Strength Level

    Hmm, the Guyver Advocacy's translation of this datafile from the link above doesn't state anything about the strength level. I don't know Japanese, but it seams that the Japanese scan of the datafile doesn't have this info either: http://guyver-world.ru/temp/zerbebuthr.png Anime datafile also doesn't have this info: http://guyver-world.ru/temp/zerbebuthranime.jpg EDIT: Also there's this picture which is I believe is from the novel, where the Zerbebuth R was introduced for the first time. It does have some digits: http://guyver-world.ru/temp/zerbebuthrnovel.jpg

  8. Ok just wanted to get the facts strait on this one. Ok so the warriorguyver bio puts Zebebuth-R at about 60 times stronger then the average human and I've got another source... https://kaijuduke.deviantart.com/art/hiper-zoanoid-zerbebuth-334706745 Saying he's about 100 times stronger, which would put him on the same level as a Guyver. Just asking for confirmation. And to liven up this post a bit, here a lovely bit of artwork on this posts subject of enquiry.
  9. Guyver versus ALIENS (photo and discussion)

    Was giving some more though to this and oh boy. I looked at tanks from both Japan and America from 1985 and in to the 90s. Your average Gregole is lifting between 40 to 60 tons. Zerbabuth is 3 times stronger, meaning he can lift between 120 to 180 tons. To put that into perspective, the Hulk at his base strength is about 90 to 100 class. It gets even more shocking when you look at "Is Muscle" Derzerb. He's about 4.6 stronger then Gregole, his maximum strength potential is 276 tons.

    Well at least Miura is getting his crap together. One miracle at a time I guess.
  13. Jurassic World 2: Fallen Kingdom

    Speak of prices... I likewise find the idea that these animals will be here after an odd one. Unless they are carrying a virus that makes women give birth to baby dinosaurs or a prehistoric avian flu, I don’t think we have much to worry about. Unless we are going the planet of the dinosaurs route and they start shooting at us. That or Goldblum is really cinical and banking on humans wiping each other out soon. Worse case I can see are very sever incidents of invasive species and animal attacks.

  18. Fake Gigantic - Revamp

    I guess it would all depend on what the purpose of your fake gigantic is? If they are trying to cheat people and make them think that it is either Sho or Agito, then you should go with their colors. If they are using them for other purposes, then any mix of colors would suffice.
  19. Guyver versus ALIENS (photo and discussion)

    Enzyme's and acids are very different things. Enzymes provide a catalyst that break down certain substances that they are designed to attack either by accident of nature or by design of man. But Zerabubuth has shown his acid was capable of hurting a Guyver. The issue for a Zeamorph is that the chances of getting close to a Guyver so its blood will do any damage is pretty limited. What would be very dangerous though would be if a Xenomorph managed to gestate in a Enzyme 3. That then would be very devastating because the Guyver's easy to use quick weapons wouldn't do much against it's acquired healing abilities. Again though even that combo if hit full on by a Guyvers maga-smasher is dead. Be it single or double.
  20. Fake Gigantic - Revamp

    Was thinking of commissioning artwork of Fake Gigantic at some point but I'm not sure of the colour. Should I go with the same colouring as Sho's Gigantic, only darker.... Or go for Aptom's Fake Guyver colours?
  21. Fake Gigantic - Revamp

    There's two reasons. The first is to make the Fake more convincing and the seconds is greater destructive output. Both of these flow into its role, by being more convincing it has a higher chance of tricking Purgstall and the more powerful weapons insure that, should Sho or Purgstall have been more hesitant to act, it can cause a greater level of destruction to put more pressure on them. I like the idea of it not being physically very powerful and goes into it's role both in the manga and my revamp. Fake Gigantic is just a big, glass cannon. It looks scary and it can put on a flashy show but one hit and its history.
  22. Fake Gigantic - Revamp

    What I want to know is why they didn't make Gamma a cyclops. It's a pretty good revamp, but I don't get the point. Branchai only existed to draw out the Gigantic and into battle with Purgstall. We never got any indication of its physical strength because it only ever used its weapons. It may be very physically weak due to dedicating all its energy to weapons output - muscle tissue mainly acting as radiant energy generators, etc.
  23. Fake Gigantic - Revamp

    Ok I really like Fake Gigantic / The Branchai Brothers and I wanted to expand on their powers a bit. I don't mean make them anymore powerful then they were per say, but rather to give them more fake guyver abilities. Ok so basic overview... None of the Fake's basic stats change at all. Weapons: Fake Head Beam: A single, super high degree bio-laser fired from the gem on the forehead. Fake Pressure Cannon: Fires high explosive bombs from organic cannons on its lower wrists. New Weapons: Fake High Frequency Blades: Vibration blades made from bone and keratin making them the less durable then the those of the guyver. Blades maximum length is only half that of true Gigantic and have no flexibility. Fake Giga-Smasher: Two high output Bio-Lasers located either side of Beta's head. Destructive power on par with Aptom's when in Duel-Blast Mode form. Can be fired multiple times but high energy requirements make it ill advised to do this more then two or three times. Fake Sonic Buster: To combat high toxin build-up from "Giga-Smasher", Fake Gigantic can divert waste products special organs in Alpha and Gamma's sections. The waste product can then be expelled from the mouth of that area as an acidic slime. Fake Gigantic is able to support these weapons thanks to the combined bio-energy of the three hyper-zoanoids that comprise it. However it's still a pal imitation of the original. Edit: Due to having two weapons located in its forearms, Fake must reconfigure the internal structures of its arms each time it switch's. This prevents it from using both weapons at once. Most of this comes from a revamping of Aptom's Fake Guyver form I did a few years back but these additions actually seem more fitting on FG. Question: How physically strong is Fake Gigantic speculated to be?

  26. The Guyver: The Bioboosted Armor Rewatch Thread

    Guyver TV series episode 2 Review (Japanese language) To me the second episode of any anime is usually the deciding factor of whether I keep watching or drop it. While I think it's interesting that the TV series is trying out new ideas and things, I think it's not trying hard enough to be interesting to a new viewer that doesn't know what Guyver is and that is ultimately what it should be doing because Guyver is a classic old anime that is most unheard-of except for the fact that it was remade, at least in the eyes of a new viewer. I shall now refer to this Sho Fukamachi as "sho I do not know", actually maybe that's too long how about just "new sho". New Sho is different from the Sho in that he is very timid and has a lot of anxiety issues, possibly caused by the loss of his mother which we are not told is recent or not. In fact he doesn't seem like the kind of person you'd want to hang out with because he's always down in the dumps. But it doesn't matter because he is our main character, or at least he is supposed to be. The problem with episode 2 is that it focuses too much on tetsuro and Mizuki. This is new for both the OVA and the manga. In order to grab new viewers I think it's important to create a strong relationship between the main character and the audience at least in the first two episodes if not the whole series. It's hard for me to get behind a main character that is not shown. get it...not sho-wn? Okay I'll stop. We also get some glimpses of "new Mizuki" who seems to be just as depressed and anxious as new sho is. Good that makes them made for each other right? Because in the original manga both Sho and Mizuki were both lively and energetic people. But what I really don't like about new mizuki, is that she appears to be psychic in that she has the same expression on her face that all the other characters that know about Cronos have. She's supposed to be completely in the dark and she still is but for some reason, she always seems to have an oh my god really bad thing is going to happen soon face. I don't know why she has that face at all. Is the anime going to explain it, like they did with new sho's mother? Because maybe that would be interesti-oh okay it's not. Guyver versus Ramotith Well let's get to the meat and potatoes. At this point of the episode we haven't really established a relationship with new sho because most of the episode has focused on tetsuro, but now it's time for New Sho to take action. First tetsuro is grilled about the location of the Guyver which they had explicitly stated hidden itself in the lake. This should have been the the focus of the episode, the question is where is the Guyver unit right? Why does new sho have strange things on his back if the guyver is in the lake? And when tetsuro finds out that the Guyver is no longer in the lake, he's focusing too much on the fact that the people that kidnapped him are Kronos, which he should have realized by the uniforms they were wearing. His surprise should have been that the Guyver is no longer in the lake, not that they are Kronos! This then gives new sho the idea to ask the Guyver for help, and oh my God he's going to say it soon.... Get ready for it...*main character screams Guyver like a girl* what the fudging fudgepacker was that?! This is our new Guyver? Are you kidding me? No seriously are you kidding me? Ever since I was a kid one of the best parts of the Guyver shows was hearing the main character yell Guyver like a hero, and that was not a heroic scream. This is supposed to be a really big part of the show and they dropped the ball. This is supposed to be a signature staple of the show and they left it out. What were they thinking? Moving on. New Sho calls on the Guyver unit. The suit's explosion ate one of the Ramotith in half, guts and all, which was cool. I like that it shows the suit is Bulletproof and this is the first time in the series that they have explained how the suit works by showing the suit connected to the user's brain. For the first time we can see that the Guyver is actually able to see and think faster than normal humans and uses his head beam based on instinct to shoot down a bullet in mid-air. That was very cool, no objections that was very cool. Then Guyver fights Ramotith which is always fun to watch, and makes short work of them. Guyver vs Vamore Here is another very very very important part of the Guyver series. The mega Smasher. How large is the blast is and how long it shoots for is another very big staple for this series. Especially since later in the manga, Guyver I struggles with controlling the mega Smasher himself because it is supposed to be this uncontrollable blast that he can do nothing about. However, It only lasts for a couple seconds, they show the damage afterwards to give the audience an idea of what it did but there's just no forgiving laziness. Yes it was cool while the mega Smasher was warming up with the lightning and everything, but it just lacked the same impact as it usually does. And I think that's the key word for this episode....impact, in this episode, it didn't really have it. It just felt like an ordinary show and it doesn't have the passion of the original Guyver. A final note, I think it was a nice touch that they showed that makishima's Guyver unit was black and red, which explains why his suit is black and red. Why then is inspector Risker's Guyver unit also blue and pink like new sho's? Isn't it supposed to be gold and black then? Consistency consistency consistency! There is no freaking consistency! That wraps up my review of Guyver episode 2. I really wanted to enjoy this episode, but I had to make it clear that the second episode of an anime is super important because it's supposed to grab a new viewer's attention and I think it failed to do that. I think that it still does play to Old fans by showing new things that other adaptations did not but I also think that even that is handled in a clumsy way. This is why I constantly tell people that are interested in Guyver to watch the OVA instead of the 2005 series. The reason is because I fell in love with the Guyver series because of the OVA. If I had watched this 2005 series back then when I was 9 or 10 years old, I don't think I would have liked it as much today. Let me know if you like my style of review and I hope you look forward to next week's review of episode 3. - Maze
  27. The growths on the host's back that communicate with the unit make me think that their death would trigger some kind of emergency reaction. They're the host's connection to the unit, and they never go away unless the host is separated from the unit with the Remover, as far as I can assume.
  28. Purgstall Data File

    True Imakarum has the benefits of being a the last zoalord created so he's in theory the most advanced, plus he has the body of a gravity control type and his original bio-energy abilities on top of that. Thats a very powerful combination. The rest are all very powerful but as you say their specialised. I'd personally say you need about 3 zoalords to have a chance of matching a gigantic. Juring the battle with Agito, had another zoalord been there to help Waferdanos and Yentsui, the best choice would have been Sin, they might have had a real chance.
  29. Purgstall Data File

    Yeah, he seems to be able to manipulate the weather of the area he is in to an extent to create more power. In the right circumstance he could be incredibly dangerous. But all the Zoalords with exception of Imakarum and possibly Archanphel suffer from the same issue. They are all great in one or two things... but suck at others. So when they fight the "All Round powerful, made to fight Archanphel" Guyver Gigantics alone, or even in a small group, they cannot hope to compete at all. The 3 rogues have now all felt the fear of the Guyver Gigantics. They were only able to talk smack because they didn't realize just how powerful the Guyver Gigantics are.
