Just to have some fun, I asked an AI to create a potential 30th fighter for Killer Instinct, and it delivered… Read the introduction to Vorkath, the vengeful dragon warrior:
Backstory: Vorkath was once a powerful dragon who ruled over a kingdom of fire and ice. But when his kingdom was invaded by a rival dragon clan, Vorkath was defeated and left to die. However, he was saved by an evil sorcerer (Kan-Ra) who saw the potential in him as a deadly warrior.
The sorcerer imbued Vorkath with dark magic, transforming him into a monstrous creature with a burning hatred for all other dragons. Vorkath now roams the land seeking revenge against those who wronged him, using his immense strength and magical abilities to crush his enemies.
Appearance: Vorkath stands over 8 feet tall and has dark red scales that are almost black in some areas. He has two large, curved horns on his head and his eyes glow a bright yellow. He has large wings that enable him to fly and he has long, sharp claws on his hands and feet.
Abilities: Vorkath has the ability to breathe fire and ice, allowing him to unleash devastating attacks on his opponents. He is also incredibly strong and can lift and throw opponents with ease. His wings allow him to fly and he can use them to create powerful gusts of wind that can knock opponents off their feet. Finally, he can use his dark magic to drain the life force from his opponents, making him nearly invincible.
Gameplay: Vorkath is a slow but powerful character, with strong attacks and high health. His fire and ice attacks can be used to control the battlefield, and his wing attacks can be used to push opponents back or off the stage. His dark magic drains the life of opponents and makes him more difficult to defeat. However, he is vulnerable to fast, agile opponents who can dodge his attacks and strike quickly.
I could certainly see Vorkath as a 30th fighter for the latest KI- especially since the bonus fighters near the end were awesome remixes of preexisting concepts, so taking a bit of Gargos and remixing it for the vengeful fire and ice dragon would work as it worked for Kilgore…
While you guys think about Vorkath’s potential, I took it one step further by presenting the AI’s draconic creation to the legendary artist who designed the classic KI crew, Kev Bayliss! (Stay tuned for his thoughts)
Vorkath- Awesome Victory, or Game Over?
