Childhood Heroes

Tips: 0.00 INK Postby ThatsNotPoetry on Mon Sep 22, 2008 10:15 pm

Someone opened a thread titled "Heroes." I got all excited expecting it to be about our own personal heroes, but turns out it was about the show. xD So I'm gonna make it happen!

Specifically, who was/were your childhood hero(es)?

My number one? Oh, just a little nobody named....



HULK HOGAN!
Image

My second biggest childhood hero? Oh, just this fella, who was both a cop and a robot. You may have heard of him.
Image

I always thought one of my childhood heroes was Dr. Alan Grant. Turns out it was simply Sam Neill in everything, ever.
Image

Also when I was a child I thought Samus was a man and that "he" was the coolest thing that could ever... well... roll into a ball, I guess.
Image

And lastly, I blame my fifth greatest childhood hero on my father, for forcing me to watch Star Trek with him. Particularly, Next Generation. Jean-Luc Picard, you will always be my second-greatest old-man-crush.
Image

So! Tell me who your childhood heroes are! I think they could reveal a lot about ourselves, and perhaps offer a bit of insight into the kind of RP that we enjoy.

Reason: Dead link, oh noes!
I am available as an RP mentor should you seek to improve.
I draw things that you may like.
I like Ronald Jenkees and you might, too.

I require a certain level of writing skill in my stories. Don't be insulted, I just prefer to RP novel-level material. (I, I, I, me, me, me. I sound like such a jerk.)

Hmm.. Britney Spears x]. But she was normaler back then and she did have a few good songs.

There was also Cinderella, Santa the Easter bunny and tooth fairy and I have home videos where it said I wanted to be a penguin as my job when I grew up, strange I know, so penguins x].

It sounds so chronologically impossible to me because I was like 15 when Spears got really popular, and I have no idea how old you are. xD So strange!

Oh shit! I think Fist of the North Star is a pretty cool guy, eh destroys bodies from within and doesn't afraid of anything.

Also the mention of these heroes reminded me of one which I am ashamed to have forgotten:

SEGATA SANSHIRO
Image

I heart you, Ken. Also it's good to hear from you again. :3

Ash and Pikachu (from the original series, of course. They're horrible now...)
Yami from YuGiOh (original series (in US, not Japan))
Marik and Bakura from YuGiOh (still love them)
Probably have more, but can't remember them at the moment.

I have lots of Different Role Models that I had during Childhood and I still do...They are as flows from least importance to most importance...(5=Low 1=High)

6: Neji Hyuga, He has influenced my fighting style, in which i use spins, pressure points, and Palm strikes/blocksImage

5:Barry Manilow, He has influenced how I sing And I have altered my voice to how he sings....I sing Very well for my age. Image

4: Sora, He has influenced me to start swordfighting which I am extremely proficient at... I just can't do magic, high jumps or insane Reaction Commands like Block in the Sephiroth battle... I could Probably beat him by now if he didn't have som many freakin abilities!
Image

3: Herman Li, He has influenced me to start playing My guitar as fast as possible...I have recently gotten extremely good at Finger tapping, finger sliding, Vibrato, Power Chords, and 32th note strumming.
Image

2: Chuck Norris...No description is needed just a roundhouse kinck to the face, and you'll know DAMN well why XD.
Image

1: Dragons, honestly unless you have been living under a box since i joined you should Know why Dragons are # 1. on my list.

Riikano, aren't Naruto and Kingdom Hearts relatively new on the "events since I was a child" scale? 'Course, I never liked either so I dunno jack about them, perhaps I am wrong. xD But then, you are young and so your childhood heroes are much more recent than mine. :3 Wow, this thread has ended up being quite different from what I expected. Some part of me assumed it would be a thread loaded with old gen-X references. The things you learn!

3. The white power ranger
He made it cool to be part of America's dominant racial background.

lol x333

Oh no, I read it, trust me. As I explained, our difference in years makes your childhood heroes people I became aware of in my late teens/just recently. It makes this thread somewhat thrilling for me, because I get to see what's being praised in the minds of youth today.

This is an RP site. We're all into unexpected stuff! No, I'm not going to think anyone is into (innocent) stuff beyond their age range. Keep your imaginary superheroes in their containment units. ;)

Hahaha xD Bit of a stretch, but I have no problem being linked to the lean, mean, ass-kicking machines. Which I forgot to mention as another batch of my childhood heroes. I had all the figures when I was in 2nd grade--back before they were a tongue-twisting abbreviation!

Picard is pretty good. But I'm' gonna have to say first and foremost my Dad.
When the end seem to justify the means, you've tried too hard to find an excuse. When 'by any means necessary' means 'violence may become necessary' you've lost sight of your goal. When people lay down and die rather than endure any more suffering, worry for the state of humanity. When people do not comment on how wrong this is, become angry at the world, because feeling that upset is too hard to bare. When people say 'you care too much' don't answer, because there is no such thing.

#1 Godzilla: I've been watching Godzilla since I was 3 years old. I've always loved monsters, always loved watching 'em fight, and it's nice to know that not all of 'em get bad rep. Not to mention, it's been my inspiration for using monsters in almost every RP.
Image
#2 Hideo Kojima: He made the ultimate video game of all time: Metal Gear which implements historical facts to create one of the best story-lines of all time, while throwing in his own personal interests, such as basing Metal Gear Solid 3 Snake Eater off one of the first James Bond Films: From Russia With Love. It's helped change the way I think about things in real life, taught players to question their actions in his games on a moral level. He also applied concepts that the world is facing today. (I want his cock)

Image

#3 Stan Lee: The man who brought superheroes down to our level. He knew how to show us how normal they really are, as well as showing us that even the bad guys got a little bit of good in 'em.
Image

#4 Lewis Black: His hot temper makes me laugh incredibly hard, his jokes are unique, and I can relate to him, not to mention all the odd traits that refer to who he is as a person.

OH JOY! Yet another list of things that shall be fun to compile.

Heros…lord I have far to many to count.

Well the first one that comes to mind for me is the one and only blue bomber and his Best buddy. Mega Man and Zero; I can’t think of a cooler pair of robotic guys
Image

This would be quickly fallowed by another blue fellow Sonic (( though I’m a big Nintendo fan boy now; I’ve always been a fan of that crazy hedgehog )
Image

Another would be the green rangers. Forget the white ranger; it was all bout the green ranger with his dagger flute thing that summoned a mecha Godzilla! (( Oddly enough before they introduced him my favorite was the blue ranger…what is it with me and blue guys? ))
Image

Jackie Chan….I’m just wordless. He got me started in martial arts, in comedy, in everything! I want to hug this man!
Image

There will be more. It’s 1 in the morning here so I can’t remember all of my lovely childhood influences right off the bat. I do have quite the load of them though.

Godzilla is up there, it seems!

I just want to remind everyone that these are our childhood heroes; people that we worshiped when we were children. Not people who provided us with stuff we liked as kids or people we respect now (unless they happen to still be your heroes, of course!)

I'm so glad this thread picked back up! *squeal!*
