Introduction

Meta- (from Greek: μετά = "after", "beyond", "adjacent", "self"), is a prefix used in English (and other Greek-owing languages) to indicate a concept which is an abstraction from another concept, used to complete or add to the latter.

Bot- A bot (short for "robot").

Their Origin


The year 2000 is when the first alien lifeforms are recorded having made contact with earth. These alien invaders arrived trapped inside meteors which rained down upon the world for 10 consecutive days and nights which would become known worldwide as The Doomsday because many people prophesied that the world would end on that date as foretold by many a religious experts and y2k enthusiasts. It turned out that the event would not bring about the end of the world, but usher in a new age. A new age for new possibility for both humans and its foreign visitors.

At the time, meta-bots as they are known now did not exist, rather their core consciousness in the form of token medals were found at the sites wherever the meteors impacted.

It would take a brilliant astro physicist by the name of Dr. Isaac Asimov to discover the purpose of the mysterious meteorite findings , he theorized that the medals were in fact advanced sentient lifeforms. He became known as the father of meta-bots, despite not having created them himself. His research helped integrate the meta's into a robotic shell or hardware to house their consciousness. The Japanese helped mass produce and design the robots making the metas accessible for general use.

In a span of 10 years Meta's became something no one knew anything about to a daily convenience people could not see their lives without like personal computers or cars. Meta's and humans have co-existed for a short span of time, a growing body of research suggest that Meta's may be even more human than actual human beings. Meta's have motives, emotions, and aspirations unique of their programming. However Meta's do not possess full rights the same way as humans. Meta's have been programmed to the observe the following laws.

1.A meta may not injure a human being or, through inaction, allow a human being to come to harm.
2.A meta must obey the orders given to it by human beings, except where such orders would conflict with the First Law.
3.A meta must protect its own existence as long as such protection does not conflict with the First or Second Laws.

For these following reasons, Meta's exist to protect and serve mans whim . However a growing movement with the Meta community seeks complete independence from the human race and the creation of a state for meta's. They are known as the A.L.P.H.A.. They subscribe to a belief of meta-supremacy, believing the meta race to be superior of human . On the other end of the spectrum there are humans with equally disturbing views who seek to dominate and destroy all Meta's. Fearful of the potential of meta's to rise up and enslave humans, they commit hate crimes against peaceful Meta's and their owners.

Types of Meta-bots


Warfare Bots-These meta-bots specialize in warfare, they can usually be found competing at tournaments or at regular street fights. Note: It's not illegal to fight with a meta-bot in public as long as you secure a safe zone to hold your fight. These are not all the known meta-bots listed, there are custom as well as rare meta's that have yet to be revealed, these are just some of the more common templates.

Knight Series
Image
The Knight series features strong defensive ratings, high melee output and some range at the expense of agility and the use of a projectile.


Ninja Series
Image
The Ninja series is swift and decently strong with good range options but lacking in defense. They can utilize special ninja magic called "jutsu"


Samurai Series
Image
The Samurai series typically posses a balance of the strengths of both the Knight and Ninja classes, without the specialization of either series, making it a popular choice for beginner players.


Beast Series

Pure Beast
Image

Humanoid
Image

These are meta-bots that resemble beasts in form, they tend to have various transformations like a hybrid, pure beast and humanoid form. They're generally fast, tough and strong given their ferocious nature. However they're among the hardest to train and their A.I tends to be less impressive than other series.


Elemental Bots

Elemental bots are highly favored for their ability to harness natural elements. They typically make good fighters and are used for energy supplying purposes.

Fire-based series

Ice-based series

Lightning-based series

Professional Series

Clown Series
Image

Doctor Series
Image
They're the nurse joys of meta-bots.

Detective Series
Image

Domestic Series

These are meta's that tend to serve in assistance based roles.

Butler Series
Image
Butler bots can fulfill just about any role with some degree of proficiency.


Master Bots/Legendary Bots

Image

The ruling class of Meta-bots, they command great power and influence. It is most likely they were very important individuals back at their home planet. They seem to possess near god-like infinite power, charisma and are smarter than most other Meta's. The are perhaps the most dangerous type of meta-bots and are unlikely to submit to any human, they defy their programming.
The leader of A.L.P.H.A is known to be one of these. They are known to posses a mysterious power known as the "Meta Force". Not much is known about either Master or Legendary bots except that Dr. Asimov noted in his studies that all Master bots commonly posses immeasurable wills.


You're free to make your own series or custom type to suit your playstyle, these are just templates to give you an idea.
