Rave Battle cast-uncoloured by Ryanide Rave Battle cast-uncoloured by Ryanide
This is the whole cast for Rave Battle, minus the four villains who are coming seperately. You can see their MIDI forms up top. From left to right are:

Close: a young musician who befriends Sean. He's very quiet and skittish, and nobody can seem to get him to talk about his past. His band supports Sean, and intend to make music to suit his performance as he gains popularity. His lifebeat is 160bpm, but he's not a dancer.

Fein and Lalii: these two are the reigning champions of the double league. Both have a lifebeat of 140bpm, and speciallise in sleasy pop. (you know, the stuff on the radio you hear all the time...yeah, it's always about love or touching up girls or something stupid like that). Lalii made herself famous from humble origins. Sean has eyes for her, but is too shy to admit it. Fein has an unusual past. Coming from a family of dancers in which he was the only male cub in a litter of five. His parents decided he wasn't going to be a dancer like his sisters, and didn't bother to give him classes. Fein developed a love for dance and tried to teach himself by watching his sisters. As a result, he was soon so good that he could enter tournaments and win...however, he dances like a girl. Very much so. Not that this has any impact on his popularity (like Sean, his fanbase consists mainly of girls, anyway). Fein is an absolute media sponge, he's been known to do very startling things to get attention from the Press. Fein and Lalii are the main rivals of Lee and Chance.

Stryke: Stryke is Sean's best friend. A REALLY good fighter, a pretty good DJ and a not-very-good breakdancer, he can be relied on to help Sean out of risky situations. He can sometimes be a bit of a meathead, but his street cred easilly makes up for that. His lifebeat is at 140bpm and he works with hip-hop. (He's a husky, not a wolf.)

Sean: the main character. Sean almost took home the tournament cup on his first try. He's a bit of a cult favourite, and is aiming to step into the light. He happy-go-lucky attitude belies his potential skill in both the fighting ring and the dance floor. Typically for a bunny, he can be fairly stupid when it comes to making descisions and handling difficult situations, but his style and looks win him big points in competition. He enjoys many kinds of techno and pop, making him a good all rounder. His lifebeat is at 160bpm.

Vann: The reigning champion of the dance floor. Vann the stoat is into hardcore rave, and is so in touch with his inner 170bpm lifebeat that it's said that he has the ability to hypnotise his opponents with his body movements. It's rumoured that even his touch can cause his competitors to lose their energy and fall asleep. If this is not enough, Vann's sheer physical strength makes him a dangerous opponent, especially coupled with the fact that he fights dirty...very dirty.

Darei: (pronounced Dah-ray) Darei is an aboslute music freak. She will dance to ANYTHING. Her life beat is at 170bpm, but she's interested in such a broad range of music that she can adapt to pretty much any tune, especially if it has lyrics. Darei's strong point is her amazing footwork. She's more of a dancer than a fighter, but doesn't like to perform competitively. She veiws Chance as her hero, and wants to meet him in person someday. As she's good friends with Sean, she hopes Sean will be able to get her in touch with Chance. She also likes video games.

*FUN FACT* Darei's hat was designed after I saw put a pair of underpants on his head when we were reeeeeealy bored. I said "hey, if you had cat ears, that would make a nice hat!" Seems it works for squirrels too. =)

Datson and Fiona: these two ballroom dancers intend to win the classical league. Their lifebeats are at 140bpm. Datson is a strong physical fighter and and a very good dancer. Fiona prefers just to dance, but she has some strong energy-based attacks and mind tricks she can use if she needs to defend herself. Despite being great partners, the two of them are quick to squabble.

Lee and Chance: These two are martial arts dancers, with life beats of 200bpm. Lee is well known for him impressive single performances in the fighting ring. He is one of the more popular artists in the competitive scene. Recently, he has taken up martial dance with his new partner, Chance. Chance is relatively unknown in the competitive world, never having entered any competitions. As a Sheozuni (Sheozu is a mysterious ninjitsu-like martial art practised exclusively by squirrels) he has a certain exotic charm that Lee believes will help him climb the ladder of sucess. Chance lacks experience, but is very keen to improve his skills, and often makes up new moves in the middle of important battles. Chance lives in Lee's mansion, and spends a lot of his time training in Lee's private gym. The two of them trust each other enough to really go all out when they spar (usually, Chance comes out the worse for ware.) Lee has given up the single leage after being beaten consecutively by Vann. With Chance at his side, he hopes to win the double leage. Chance, on the other hand, aspires to try his luck at the single leage as well. The first time he sees Darei with Sean (from a distance), he falls madly in love with her, but thinks she's one of Sean's fans.

Tifa: Her life beat is at 160bpm, she's loud, she's bouncy, and her speciality is HARDCORE HAPPY Techno. Tifa rarely enters competitions, but when she does, she comes in and ROCKS ASS. Despite being young, Tifa's sheer firepower and hyper dancing style strike fear into the hearts of anyone who's been up against her before. She was beaten at the last competition by Vann, and now she's out for revenge. Despite her offensive power and dance style being totally awesome, she can't take a hit from anything, and she can sometimes get carried away when dancing, doing horrible joke moves that cause cringing and low scores.

Phew...well now that I've finished building that wall of text, I'm going to get back to my homework! :D

BTW. I've finished Lee and Chance's lifebeat, but you're not going to hear it until I post my next WIP, har har.

Rave Battle (C) Ryanide 2006, do not distribute or steal

EDIT: I changed Tifa's lifebeat from 200 to 160, because hardcore happy is much easier to make to a 160 beat.

Reply
:iconryanide:
Ryanide Featured By Owner Dec 28, 2007
No. There's nothing weird about that. Haven't you ever seen a martial arts dance before? Chance and Lee specialize in fighting dances. You have to have someone who matches you for strength if you're going to pull off that kind of routine.

And no, they're not gay or weird. You can consider them to be very close, almost like brothers.

Chance is actually in love with Darei.

And I do actually have an animation of them dancing/sparring in my gallery.

But nontheless! I shall still find music! I won't be here for 2 or 3 weeks, so you'll have more of a break from me! :D

Only song i could find that struck my interest (though it was not made in FL)

I love the beggining which was my main interest.

Hope you like it :shrug: if you don't and want me to stop (cause i'm getting lazy a little) then just send me a note or something.

To me this is AWESOME fight music. You don't have to listen to it.
Its the first one "Guitar vs. Piano 1.2".
Reply
:iconryanide:
Ryanide Featured By Owner May 16, 2007
It's a decent piece of music, but there isn't enough layers and it's way too repetitive. Fight music needs lots of base and multiple tunes running at once.
Reply
:iconjumplion:
Jumplion Featured By Owner May 16, 2007
Layers? Like a guitar, bass, keyboard, and other instruments all playing at once?
Reply
:iconryanide:
Ryanide Featured By Owner May 16, 2007
Yeah. This song was minimalist. The tune was very good, but it sounded a bit "empty." There could have been a few more things added to it in order to improve it.

I suppose you're right. Lol you remind me of Froggster! He's such a critic, especially when it comes to Photoshop stuff. :evileyes: he makes me angry when he does that though...
Reply
:iconryanide:
Ryanide Featured By Owner May 17, 2007
Without critique, nobody would ever improve.

Some people over-critique stuff, or aren't helpful when they do give critique. There are a lot of people on Newgrounds who are like that. But most of the time, they actually don't know what they're talking about.

:iconjumplion:
Jumplion Featured By Owner May 17, 2007
I do admit that some critique to a certain level is good for improvement but alot of the times the creators don't really want people to be so critical about their work like people giving a full blown review for a simple animation. Plus it gets really annoying if you have to deal with it in your own home!! Urrgg!! My sisster and father always criticize what i do!! When i was doing to science fair my dad wanted me to put a longer explanaition for basically everything and he said taht "People will laugh at how little words you have on it" and then i was imagining a guy going "Oh look at him, he barly has any words on his project, mine has a ton!" and it was soooo annoying!! URGH! And it turns out that when i got to the Science Fair there were kids who barly had any words on their stuff and they got really good grades and crap like that!!!

Whoo sorry i got carried away there ^^; well anyway critique is good but its bad if its in to much proportion. I'll still find you some stuff if you want me to. What can i say? I love music!!
Reply
:iconjumplion:
Jumplion Featured By Owner May 16, 2007
Well i still like it. Either way i'll still find peices of music for you. If i'm getting annoying just tell me to stop and i'll stop.

I bet i could find some music that maybe one or two of the people on this page will like. Maybe you could use these songs in the series, or be inspired by them or something. I like Less Talk More Rokk and Jordan! ^-^


Sean and/or Darei
Less Talk More Rokk (or Get Ready to Rokk)-[link]
Jordan(a freakin HUGE guitar solo!!!)-[link]
YYZ (maybe)-[link] (fun fact= YYZ is actually a code Canadians use on their luggage!)

Tifa:
Love Love Shine! WOOO!!!- [link] *bounces up and down* wooo!!

Darie and Sean aren't rockers. They're more into pop and techno.

Although "Love Shine" is exactly the sort of song that Tifa could work with.
