Concept and Creation
To this day, Rocky Kaos remains imperfect, but continues to grow as a character despite all the changes.
Capabilities and Powers
lol all this is kinda wrong
gotta fix fast
Tournament of a Lifetime!
Rocky took part in the battle Roleplay on Old Geneforce , going up against Speedster the Hedgehog. She had immediately activated her Mecha state (otherwise known as Metal Rocky or Neo Rocky) from the start and fought against World Speedster in the battle. According to her dialogue, Rocky seemed very malicious, threatening and afterwards, quiet. Her no longer existent Red Knife weapon and Chaos Canon were her means of attack during the battle, and she was known to fly/hover throughout the entire battle. While she was powerful, she did get hit from several attacks until the Referee called for a draw immediately after Rocky used her ending blast. She warped out of the "arena" after calling the fight a "good game". This warping ability was nixed as well.
Knight In Shining Stone
Introduced on page 3 of the Sonic and Galactic Knights Webcomic from 2008-09, Rocky appeared to help her son and Princess Lizzy fight off a Demon. Rocky uses her Green Blade, a weapon that had since been nixed, to fight against the clone of the Demon, slicing into its head before being blown back by a powerful attack. Rocky deems it is too strong to deal with in her current state.
Medals and Nerves Made of Tropican Steel
In this 2012 AU, Rocky partakes in the Olympic Games, based off of the Mario and Sonic Olympic Games series. In this universe, Rocky and Tori were selected to represent Planet Tropic as an athletic unit like Earth, but only Rocky was able to go first. While this incarnation of the robot girl is much less intelligent, serious and powerful than her original, she makes more enemies, friends and rivals than she does in actual canon. Major differences in this almost-fully scripted comic of over 100 pages include the lack of a definitive love interest, the lack of a super form, a greater emphasis on Rocky losing nearly everything she tries, and a much more adorably foreign Rocky (through use of her native tongue, not knowing or understanding many Earth traditions or sports, etc.). Before the most current form of Rocky existed, this alternate version was heavily considered to be the canon in terms of personality and background, but was dropped because it wouldn't make sense for her to behave in this silly manner on Tropic.
- Rocky shares the same initials as her creator does; "RK".
- Despite "Rocky the Robot" being one of the most overused names for robot characters, the name has never been altered in the development of the character. The only thing that had been done about this predicament was to give her a "real name," Roqueta Kaos.
- Rocky's Tropican ethnicities include Human and Koko; the bird traits come from her father's side of the family, as her great grandparents were Koko.
- Rocky is 85% Human, 15% Koko, roughly. Her major Koko genotypes include aggressiveness, stubbornness and curiosity, while her phenotypes include height, fluffy/feathery (once green) hair and large beak-like nose.
- Rocky’s pinkish/red skin color comes naturally from Tropican Humans, and her hair color as a baby was green, likely from her Koko side.
- Rocky also has weak knees, which is part of an unfortunate disease that some Koko carry as a result of mixing the birds with non-backwards-kneed creatures. This was helped somewhat during the surgery, but Rocky, Tori and their father still don’t have the best set of joints available.
- Rocky has the intelligence of an Elementary school child, though her experience on the job helps her to gain intel from a more realistic point of view.
- She also has been trained by government hired professionals in the fields of Geokinesis and various Tropican martial arts. For a short time, she was also invested in sword/blade wielding techniques.
- Rocky's story in the Geneforce Universe largely revolves around her rookie/newbie status among others and how she eventually grows out of it. She learns to accept herself and others as they are, balances her conservativeness with plenty of risks and becomes aware of the figurative "gray areas" in everyone (including herself). Rocky's character is about growing up and coming to terms with reality, but still being allowed to dream and have fun when the time is right.
