New Unicorn novel, HUGE SPOILERS!

Post by balofo » Fri Feb 17, 2012 10:56 pm

From the PS3 game bundle
SpoilerShow
Full Frontal was originally a man named Deux Urithra. He was one of the Axis refugees after the end of the OYW and later served in both Neo Zeon rebellions, piloting various Zeon mobile suits (from the Gaza-C to the Bawoo to the Geara Doga in CCA). He was an excellent pilot but he never stood out. After Char's Counterattack, he was approached by a Zeonic scientist who had recovered the Sazabi's cockpit. Because Deux had a very similar bodytype and matching hair color to Char (and because he was believed to have untapped Newtype potential) he was given the chance to become the 'new vessel for Char'. Deux took up the offer and became the man we know now as Full Frontal. His first order of business was the theft of the Sinanju prototype. With only a squad of Geara Dogas (led by himself, with future ace Angelo Sauper among his team) they took the Sinanju after a hard fought mobile suit battle. FF's Geara Doga was destroyed, but his powers were tapped: he was Char now, in all but name.
Looks half fake :D

I dunno Deacky, The Real Char [tm] wound up with some awfully weird/unfortunate nanes...

Honestly after "Quattro Bajeena" or however that's romanized, it's par for the course :lol:
I personally find his first name more interesting.
SpoilerShow
"Deux", the French for "Two", seems to tie into his role as "The Second Coming of Char" as well as the [Numerical First Name]+[Horribly-Engrish Anatomical Surname] pattern of "Quattro Bajeena"
Interestingly, I seem to recall seeing from a game still that FF's Geara Doga sported the same pink-and-red paint scheme as Char's Zaku II and Gelgoog.

However, I have some doubts as well; it almost seems to fit too well with the little that we already know about him. I suppose if it's from something that came with the game, eventually it'll be possible to verify it.

I'm calling complete shenanigans on this story. My Google-fuu is strong and nothing, regardless of the twists, turns, shortcuts and queries I make pulls anything up.

Quattro. Bajeena.
Compared to that, "Deux Urithra" is...
...actually, it's TOO similar now I think on it; the first name is a number ("Deux"(2)/"Quattro"(4)), and the last name a horribly mangled Engrish version of some part of the human anatomy. It's too perfect a fit.

I'm gonna join Deacon and Shadowcell here and call shenanigans, unless somebody comes forward with proof.

Yeah... This is from an /m/ thread a couple of days ago. Not sure why it would be taken seriously.

Wat

If this is true, then FF's real name deserves Name of the Year, otherwise this is a troll from 2ch.

yeah, and two of those they mangled into something completely different, like "Hymem" and "Bageena."

Unicorn takes itself far too seriously to be that hilariously self-aware. i'm surprised they stuck with "Full Frontal" in the first place. =P

Given that everyones mind is in the gutter whent it comes to Full Frontal, lest I remind everyone of this:
Deacon Blues wrote: Call me old fashioned, but I when I see full frontal, I think of something unrestrained or uninhibited. Example: a full frontal attack. It's informal, but not unheard of.
To which Mark Simmons replied:
toysdream wrote:Consulting Google, we find:

"full frontal attack" : about 1,290,00 results
"full frontal nudity" : about 368,000 results
"full frontal assault" : about 44,500 results

I'm calling this one for Deacon. Our minds really are in the gutter!

@Deacky: I said the same recently as well till Mark went and posted this...

so I'm not gonna bet for or against this particular hilarious name being true.
