Tiamat is one of my better character concepts.

He is the typical overpowered guy looking for worthy challengers.

But i think he is also very different especially for the archetype of "guy looking for strong opponents"

Fear was the idea behind this enemy. I wanted people to be fucking scared when they watched the Tiamat episodes. This did work. The shock of seeing him just straight up eating people caused a few people i know irl to stop watching cosmic warriors :(

Tiamat is a primal fear humans have of a predator who is larger, faster and stronger than them. An enemy who is pretty much indestructible that you cannot defend yourself against.

To avoid the problems of exponential growth of enemy power levels during a story, the cosmic warriors had a day to prepare to attack this guy in a group and use weapons.

In a 1 on 1 fight or surprise attack the cosmic warriors would have been wiped out,

All future enemies in the story would come in groups and have weapons and special moves. So future battle could be more dangerous with higher stakes but nobody was actually ever stronger than this one guy.

Cosmic Warriors could basically be considered to be a first rough draft of a concept. But i was already trying to put a lot of psychology behind characters and into the story.

I imagined him moving around at high speeds while everyone else was moving in slow motion. I imagined this fight very much in the hajime no ippo style. If i could get any of the fights from cosmic warriors animated it would probably be this one.

For the ending sequence beast dad had to fake him out with a charge then stopping then attacking after tiamat had countered where he percieved beast dad would have been judging by the speed of his charge.

Somthing like this i think can only really be communicated through animation.

I also wanted to show beast dads muscle fibers getting all ripped out all over his legs when he stopped the charge to trick Tiamat. Again something which can only really be effective i think through animation. (This muscle fiber sequence was used in hajime no ippo)

Beast dad already has his burning justice punch.

I was originally thinking of an ice punch which has like a rainbow effect.

But due to brock and his light power i thought it would be pretty hyle if he did like a light punch that refracted through the opponents body and the white light turned to colors maybe because he punches them so hard thier bpdy crystalizes or somthing and refracts the light.

I also imagine this move would leave a light cross mark/wound that does damage over time for a few seconds after

Great ideas you have for Brock's light powers. I like them.
It is sad to see my character The Flame Keeper die, but admittedly, Tiamat is on another level. Just too big, fast, and strong. Tiamat's powers remind me of the 4th Raikage from Naruto called "A". That guy was amazingly fast and powerful and durable.
The Flame Keeper is meant to be much more human than super human, and hopefully, easier to relate to in some ways.
No matter what, it was a lot of fun seeing someone else illustrate and play around with some of my ideas/characters, it was an honor really.
Keep up the great work!

I was gonna say "Hope he didn't get kicked in the junk", but, with junk that... prominent, how could he have missed?!
