Ruby-Spears Bass by General-RADIX Ruby-Spears Bass by General-RADIX
I think I'm the only one who imagines RS-Bass as a non-combatant programmer/hacker. Everyone thinks he'll be all "AAAAARRR MUTILATE DESTROY KOMBAT", but as Gauntlet pointed out, it's entirely possible (more than likely, in fact) that he'd simply be a regular, like Snakeman or Elecman.

See, this is the fans attempting to force RS-MM to totally adhere to the game canon. As the writers have already demonstrated, it doesn't have to. Hell, who says they'd even use his English name? (These AREN'T necessarily the same fans that can't get over the square on Mega's helmet being turned to look like a diamond)

So...hacker Bass. Yeah.


Bass took over most of the computer-related functions in Skull Castle in 2014, freeing up many others (mostly Protoman) for other jobs. Due to his position, Megaman didn't know he existed until a year later, when he was brought to the Castle. Bass is extremely quiet and non-social; Wily finds this a welcome alternative to Protoman's...well, everything.


Durr, I hate spambots.

I like the story you got going for him. Bass being a hacker, It's unique! I actually really like the Ruby Spears Megaman cartoon so I find this really cool! :)

Heh. Great picture. He looks bored.

PS; You weren't the only one who pictured a Ruby-Spears version of Bass. I did once or twice shortly after the release of MM7. And I always thought that he'd make the ideal rival for Megaman. But of course since Protoman was always on the wrong side throughout the entire 2 seasons, I have a feeling Protoman and Bass would be too much for Megaman to handle alone. And they'd most likely try to kill each other for the sake of proving whose better and who gets to destroy Megaman first. And also, I always wondered how Bass's voice would be like if he was ever introduced in the show.

Once they made Proto evil, it was the last nail in Bass' coffin.

Granted, I'd have preferred Bass over Proto being the bad guy any day, but Scott MacNeil's version was too awesome not to like. ;P

General-RADIX Featured By Owner Feb 10, 2009
Yeah. Now Protoman shall forever sound like Scott McNeil (wish I could say the same for Blues.EXE). :)

M. Sipher suggested on his website that Mr. McNeil also voice Bass, and given the man's range, I don't think it'd be hard for him. Whether or not Bass would get much screentime is another thing...

:iconstephodell:
StephODell Featured By Owner Feb 10, 2009
Agreed. His talant is easily able to allow him to do that.

The whole 'Bass getting screentime' thing is debatable, but they'd have been crazy to pass him over.

I suspect they'd throw in at least one fish joke, just to piss him off.

The only thing I'd recommend is, if you really were trying to draw what they would make Bass look like, I think maybe you could see about matching their anatomical style (facially at least and add muscles) to get a more accurate depiction.

Personally, though, I don't think they would ever have bothered with Bass at that point, or would've just given him the Dark Man treatment. I bet they would've kept his design very faithful to Capcom's, though, just as it seems like the later the game, the more faithful the design (there are exceptions but it seems like every Mega Man 5 RM was done very well).

Alright.

Very interesting General,but why doesn't he have a Helmet?

He's not primarily a fighter, so wearing a helmet at all times would be kinda pointless.

It's a pretty refreshing change of pace to see Bass in a more non-confrontational role. Game!Bass, to me, always struck me as another stereotypical proud badass, so he never interested me much. If this version of Bass were to exist I would be more into him, but I'm sure the FanDumb would revolt and say "noes bass is a badass killr!"

Spambots suck. But now you know, and KNOWING IS HALF THE BATTLE! =D

I suppose my lack of problems with Badass Bass is because he seems pretty tame in comparison to Burnerman (for one). Now, Crazy Ariga Bass is another story...

Now anytime someone asks me to "Click Here", I'm hauling ass. :nod:

Heck, X was a crazy pyromaniac blowing stuff up, which was a complete contrast to his game personality. ProtoMan was evil. Who says RS-Bass can't be different?

I remember reading a fanfic someone wrote about what RS-Zero would be like. XD It was hilarious...

:icongeneral-radix:
General-RADIX Featured By Owner Feb 9, 2009
To the writer's credit, all you do in the X games is blow things up; not to mention, I think some of the arguments against RS X are based off of X7...

I read that too. Poor guy got clonked on the head one too many times... XD

True, but X was still pretty pacifistic before X7.

XD Oh yeah.

Pretty boy much?

Pretty calm minded in your head... I, once more, wouldn't blame Wily... hell- I could call him anything I wanted, and he proabably wouldn't even shoot me. (Maybe.)

Would he still pose as a rival to MegaMan, though?

Lol spambots...

It all depends on whether or not he wanted to fight him. Most likely not.

Well, being a non-combatant, he probably wouldn't prefer fighting in the first place--besides, all he's got is that crappy buster. Mega'd win every time. XD
