Bark the Polarbear by PilgrimJohn Bark the Polarbear by PilgrimJohn
A redesign of another classic Sonic character. He's supposed to be REALLY mean in the fangame, and knows Rouge from way back. He ends up forming a rivalry against Knuckles, who aims to take him down once and for all. Bark's powers include super strength and invincibility. His skin is practically unpiercable; bullets just bounce right off. However, there is one way to bring down his super-defense... Rouge and Cosmo know what it is.
Hopefully, you all like this new redesign. And remember, +faving without commenting is lame!

Well... Nah, he doesn't need flight, lol. Shadow eventually kills Bark, though, according to the story.

Thanks. You know, lots of people tend to give people like Yuji Naka (And even Shigeru Miyamoto, in some cases) crap just because they try to put "different styles" into their games and characters. Personally, I don't have a problem with it, since it's always interesting "what if...?" when... say, Slippy gets a girlfriend. :p At the very least, that destroyed any notion of those "Slippy is gay" rumormongers.

Yeh, unless there's people around who still think Slippy's a girl. :giggle: Then mabey, they'll think he's a lesbian. lol (Seriouslly, a friend of mine used to think he was a girl in SF64.)

But yeh, you're right. Seems like gamers whine about anything even slightly "new," or "different" in a game.

Darn. I was gonna redesign Bark for Smithy. Well, I guess since your already doing this, I should give you a few tips.

1. He isn't pure yellow, more of a really light brown with a yellow tint.
2. The muscularness is too wierd looking for a Sonic character.
3. His hair was better in Sonic the Fighters. He had a very spiky ponytail.
4. He looks too much like a gangsta. Once again,un Sonic character-like.
5. His back is suposed to be hunched a bit.

Eh, overall, this looks like a 6/10. Kind of disappoints...

Too bad, it stays. After all, Bark was linked to a certain gang, according to Smithy's story arc. Secondly, He's supposed to be intimidating. He didn't look very intimidating in the Fighters, so I gave him street clothes, huge muscles, and a mean streak. He let his hair out of the ponytail also.
BTW, he was wearing the same hat in Sonic the Fighters. I just added the Sega logo for the sake of my love of Easter Eggs.

He lives in the Arctic. Why would he have street clothes? And, he wasn't intimidating in Sonic the Fighters because he was never meant to be a bad guy. Plus, I never said anything about his hat! I just said he had a cool ponytail before.

Never meant to be a bad guy? Then what was he meant to be? Sega never really disclosed it. However, in the Archie comics, he was made out to be a crook along with Bean. So, we opted for something more like that since Bean and Bark both looked like thugs to begin with.
The reason why we gave him clothes is due to the fact that we were giving everybody else clothes. If he showed up wearing nothing but his hat and scarf, questions will be asked. Uncomfortable questions. You understand.
Yeah, he had a cool ponytail. Which meant that he had long hair. Also, when I made this design, I neglected that ponytail by accident. Whether his hair is out long or put into a ponytail shouldn't really matter all that much, since I really never cared one way or the other about his "official" hairstyle. Just be grateful I didn't change into something ugly, like a mohawk.

Actually, no; polarbears are a very light yellow. Besides, that was the color of his fur from the Sonic game where he was featured: Sonic the Fighters.

Like, in Sonic Gems Collection on Gamecube? That's the only way to actually own the game, unless, of course, he bought the arcade machine itself.

Actually, his legs were meant to be short. And pockets are a pain to draw.
