Fighting game character design 01 by Jiggeh Fighting game character design 01 by Jiggeh
Name: Niklas
Origin: Sweden
Fighting style: MMA
Design notes: Since I'm from Sweden of course I wanted to come up with a Swedish character. =P Scandinavian FG characters are pretty rare, and the few that do exist seem to be either vikings, or not Scandinavian whatsoever (like Chris from KOF). I wanted to come up with something more believably Swedish so with the growing popularity of MMA that seemed like a sensible choice.

I agree Scandinavian characters aren't very well represented in fighting games.

My personal idea for if I had a fighting game would be a Swedish metal musician who utilizes a brawling style where he incorporates a guitar as a blunt weapon as each protagonist can do in the "Dead Rising" games, but again strictly as a blunt weapon rather than being able to fire off projectiles from it like he's some otherworldly figure.

That could be accurate as their is a huge metal scene in Sweden, specifically around the Gothenburg area.

Keep up the good work!

Anytime dude, but seriously I see how a bunch of other people are posting ideas on your thread for some cool concepts. Do you think you might take them up on any of them and try to make character designs out of them?

He's good. But I prefer to lose the mustache and beard. Add a headband to keep the traditional hero (Ryu, Liu & Kyo) going.

I don't see any hero material in this one.

He could be awesome as Gai Tendo's rival.
