ZB! OC's - Zulu and DBGs (MM7 stage select parody) Picture


Here are the four major antagonists of The Zulu Empire arc (Chapters 11-15) of my Zatch Bell!/Konjiki no Gash (Bell)!! fan fiction Golden Gash!!: Demon Revolution Army, the Dembot Guardians of the Zulu Empire, IN A MEGA MAN 7 STYLE!!! Dembot Guardians (魔ボットガーディアン Ma bottogādian; Demon bot guardian, "Mamodo Bot Guardian" and "Mabot Guardian") are high-leveled Dembot (魔ボット Ma botto; Demon bot, "Mamodo Bot" and "Mabot") ranking officers created by Zulu—the former 7th Death General of the Demon Revol<a href="zatchbell.wikia.com/wiki/User:…">ution Army—after the Demon Revolution Army was disbanded in Chapter 10 of GG!DRA. The first set of four Dembot Guardians were created when Zulu tried taking over the Human World as its new emperor. The second set of four Dembot Guardians were created after Zulu was resurrected from the dead, to protect Neo Zecross' Fortress.

Dembot Guardians - Click on their first link for their information including special attacks and other information. Their serial number stands for "Zulu Demon Bot - Guardian ##." By the way, all Dembot Guardians have no gender since they are merely robots (while they are normally referred to as an "it", they can still called "he" or "she" if they have a masculine or feminine personality/voice)

Author Notes
Yup, this is the Mega Man 7 stage select screen. Mega Man 7 is my favorite MM game of the original series (most people like MM2 and MM3).

My original antagonist Zulu and his Dembot Guardians are indeed a Mega Man parody. Zulu is based on the Mega Man characters: Mega Man (for Zulu's Robodoruku spell) and Dr. Wily (his looks and the face they are mad scientists that created robots to dominate the world) (and you can also say that because of that, Zulu is also based on Dr. Eggman). And his Dembot Guardians are based on Robot Masters and Mavericks (corrupted Reploids) except none (besides Yeti) are humanoid.

Also, I drew the four Dembot Guardians from SCRATCH!!! Really. While I suck at drawing humans from scratch, I actually do well drawing other things from scratch. How ironic. But the only character base I used was IVIental's Rokuro Base for Zulu's head in the background (I removed the hand from the base) and I made Zulu's layer partially transparent with his neck more transparent. I put my original Zatch Bell! antagonist Zulu in to show that these are his creations.

Also, I captured the Mega Man 7 stage select screen in the SNES9X emulator.

UPDATE #1 (February 1, 2014, 8:45 p.m.): Adding two more frames, which includes my four new Dembot Guardians that appears late during the Revolution from the Dead arc.
