*Edit: first version was whipped up in an hour, so I've finally revised it a little. The floating bones are to scale of an average human, for size referance.


Mango, Cyborg Zombie.

Age: 37 years dead
Height: 6’ 2”
Weight: 311lb

Origins: Unknown before “undead.” Rose from an unmarked grave in 1973 during a zombie outbreak. Retained intelligence and willpower, but not memories of “living” life. Unlike the others infected, he was not “A mush-brained flesh eater.” Was hired and upgraded with bionic limbs by Dr. Nirad, in order to work for the international Zombie Extermination Department (Z.E.D.).

Occupation: Chief zombie exterminator for Z.E.D. Has killed 663,236 zombies in his career, including classics, moderns, various mutative, cyborg, demonic, and fungi zombies.

Personality: A cynic who takes great joy in his work. He is easily irritated and quick to anger, and almost always in a mood best described as seething. Possibly the one thing which relieves this irritation is killing zombies, as he gets primal delight from fighting and smashing things (zombie clowns especially). Though he claims that he simply enjoys blasting holes in things, he is secretly driven to exterminate zombies by a strict moral code. He cannot stand the sight of death, and is bound to destroy creatures which would kill aimlessly. It is perhaps the fact that he himself is technically a zombie which drives him to slaughter “mindless” zombies, and that he redirects his own self-hatred towards the undead not bound by humanity. His greatest fear is that one day his mind will “turn to mush” and become exactly as the creatures he so eagerly exterminates.

Mango will not kill living, coherent humans. Rule of thumb, if it's human, alive, and intelligent enough to speak a sentence ("BRAAAAAINS!" does not count), he won't kill it. He has absolutly no qualms about breaking peoples' limbs and causing extreme pain, however.

Abilities/Weapons: Cyberneticly enhanced by zombie expert Dr. Nirad, Mango is literally a zombie killing machine. While his brain remains the only thing originally his, 35% of his body is considered “zombie,” consisting of his head and right arm. His head is a custom-fabricated skull, with an inner skull made of titanium that protects his brain and his most obvious weak point as a zombie. The lenses which replace eyes are high definition and able to switch between night-vision, thermal, and electromagnetic modes.

His right arm is a construct of undead sinew and muscle protected by a pieced-together conglomeration of bones. His fingers are long and sharp, designed at such a scale that he can palm the skull of a full-grown human. The left arm is robotic, a scraped-together limb of titanium and bright wires. Though many wires are exposed, they are largely redundant systems, as backup wires are strung through the shafts which make up his arms, protected by a thin layer of titanium armor. The claw upon his left arm has the torque to crush stone and shatter skulls like walnuts, and swaps out for a powerful chainsaw with a 14” blade, which he has dubbed “Bruce.”
Both limbs are approximately 40” long, giving him an outstanding reach. The powerful motors in both arms give him superhuman strength (enough to flip a car, but not to lift it). Both have semi-concealed, customized assault rifles built into the forearms, used for long range fighting.

Upon Mango’s right shoulder is a weapons platform which extends and retracts a double barrel, auto-reloading shotgun armed with explosive rounds. Like any professional Zombie hunter, he never targets torsos; “if it ain’t in the head, it ain’t dead.”

Mango runs on a small, motorized base on tank treads, able to conquer most terrain, though stairs slow him down.

His last resort weapon is a single RPG tucked in the roof of his mouth. He keeps additional rockets and spare ammo in his base platform.

Lens: His left lens is allways glowing and changes color based on his dominant mood.
Blue: sad
Green: happy (as in he's smashing something)
Yellow: irritated (90% of the time)
Orange: angry
Red: furious

Strengths: As a cyborg zombie he is impervious to extreme temperatures, fire, viruses, poisons, weak acids, suffocation, and bleeding out. For the same reason, he cannot feel pain, nor does he tire, unless his battery is depleted below 5%. He is an expert marksman with both the assault rifles and his shoulder mounted shotgun, with a 83/100 ratio of headshots over shots fired. After completing over 200 zombie extermination jobs, he is an expert of mob combat, both close and long range. He is quick to react to any attack, and will not stop fighting until there isn’t a single servo linked to his spinal column.

Weaknesses: Because he relies on a tank-tread platform for mobility, he his not agile, despite his ability to reach high top speeds, nor can he swim, jump, or dodge easily. Fighting zombies his entire “remembered” life, he is accustomed to fighting enemies which attack directly, and is thus susceptible to traps and hit-and-run tactics. For the same reason, he finds it a difficult to try attacking anything other than the opponent’s head. Though he will attack, wound, and disable the living, he refuses to kill living, coherent humans. Mango relies largely on brute strength and stamina to win, and has rarely fought a genuinely intelligent opponent, making long-term strategy his greatest failing.
Ultimate weakness: annoying little girls (see [link])

Random: His second favorite pastime is singing karaoke with his two argumentative friends and coworkers: Bernie and Roswell.

Titanium plate around his skull eh? So the battle between two Mangos in round four is going to be pretty brutal.

And one question. Concerning Ex, I'm pretty sure he wouldn't kill her. But I assume the worst suffering to come is in order?

Oh yes, it takes more than bone to stop bullets. It'll be quite graphic, I'll tell you.

If he still thinks she's human, he won't. My entry, he manages to see through the ruse this time, but either way, he won't kill her in Desta's presence.
Yeah, some limb snapping will be in order though.

Yay graphicness!

So if he knew she was anything but human he would (just so long as it's not in Desta's presence?) Cause they'll probably have a small run in towards the end with her and possibly even Tormentor. But yeah snapping a bone would be one of the things I was hoping for.

Ugh, this is a tough question. I think he wouldn't kill her, just to be on the safe side, but he'll threaten and growl and break a couple limbs. He's going to rip off her cyborg arm for sure.

The clown, of course, is going down. Hard. Woefully, I don't think I'll be able to fit the Tormentor in my entry T_T

I was going to definitely have him rip off her cyborg arm. That was a definite must. Trophy anyone? :XD:

I'm going to put him in. I don't know how much time he'll get because I don't want to overdo anything and the main point I want to focus on is Destay's struggles (out and inside his mind) and getting Mango and Desta back together. So even if they fight it probably won't be the biggest blow out you've ever seen kind of thing. That's depending if Tormentor even comes their way (because he is going to be fighting Riddley and Allen too). So it's a tough call. But I kinda wanted Mango to at least have a run in with the Tormentor at the very least. Or at least SEE him and have that notion, "There's someone to beat down into the ground!" Especially with that face he has (as you mentioned, clowns. Yes all clowns MUST go down). There's so many things you just want to put in an entry and there's never enough time to do so. I wish I could write a thousand pages but that would probably be unnecessary. :XD:

.... It just struck me.
Mango is based on a human skeleton.
Wyet is based on the human muscle structure.
All we need now is one with skin and the cycle shall be complete D8

Skin... You're talking about the Terminator.

I HAVE CONSTRUCTED THE FIRST PROTOTYPE OF THE T-800! I knew I'd have my hand in the robot uprising somewhere, I simply knew it.

Hey another question (sorry I keep bombarding you with them XD) Ya know the man-eating gange people, they're still human but have basically gone demented, would Mango have a problem killing them, seeing as they alive and human or would he not care seeing as they are eating other people?

Oooh, toughie. Don't worry, I enjoy the questions.

Rule of thumb, if it can coherently speak, or say anything other than "Braaaaaaains!" Mango won't kill it. Anything short of that is considered a class Beta zombie, or Modern zombie. Not actually dead, but full of rage to the point of irreverseble mindlessness (see "28 Days Later").

Zombie or not though, he'll have no qualms about breaking their limbs or shooting their kneecaps through!

So how do his legs look like exactly?

SeekerPsycho Featured By Owner Aug 25, 2010
He dosn't. He has a set of treads on a base platform, like a miniature tank. About as nimble as a boulder, and just as hard to stop.

Quick question are his treads shaped like Triangles or retangles?

Good question, and I honestly have no clue, never realy thought about it.
I'd say just simple treads, two big wheels with treads strung directly between them. I'll be happy with whatever you come up with.

If that thing is as rigid as it looks then you probably have the funniest/best entrant.

Thank you. Considering Mango's an anti-social zombie fighting a 12 year old girl his first round, I think he's got the 'funniest' part pegged, not to brag.

Well if you're doing anything zombie related, you've got to throw in a few cult classic references, eh?

Exactly. I'd love to actually see him fighting a bunch of zombies. All fake skeletons with bits stuck on, over use the gore, fun fun.
