Meet Karn, a notorious muscle man. What he lacks in size and brain, he makes up with big arms and strength.
Being an intelligent species, his kind are feared in the Elemental Universe and are considered pests, as after Kuragari's takeover they went loose and began travelling in packs, searching for new homes, when old ones got destroyed due to uncontrolled elements.
Commonly moving on their large fists, they've developed massive strength, allowing them to climb almost anywhere and lift heavy objects. On top of that, they have slight amount of fire elementality, allowing them to form fireballs in their large hands.
Usually living on mountain sides, these creatures began moving to lower grounds traveling in packs, when Kuragari spread his evil. Sometimes attacking walkbyers, they steal food and equipment for their kind's survival.
Karn went further than that. He began a colossal raid on weakened villages, stealing pretty much everything valuable he got his hands on. He took advantage of the chaotic situation, allying with a few other intelligent creatures with hunger for power and property.
In combat, he prefers to use bare hands and strength. He can even put up with sharp objects, due to his thick skin so he is eager to rush on with his fists. Due to his huge arms and strength, he can do interesting techniques in battle. From distance he uses his fireballs, however he's really bad at aiming, preferring to throw multiple scattering fireballs at a time.
He loves water and rain as in both enviromental conditions he has an advantage in a fight. Swimming and fighting in water is no problem with his strength and his huge hands give him a steady grip on wet ground, where it'd be easy to slip.
He has an incredible sense of balance, developed by his hand walking.
Using his balance he sometimes just stands in freaky and weird poses without saying a word, being a silent showoff in the situation.
After hearing the theme for the Bio Cup eliminatories, my immeadiate thought was Muggshot from Sly Cooper games. I love Muggshots expression of power and decided to use that for the eliminatory round. With the fireball thing, I actually combined Muggshot with Panda King, making quite a nice combo.
This was pretty much a quick build. Leaving for an extreme camp tomorrow, I had to make this quickly up, being unable to build further details. I'm glad that I knew what I was building. This leaves me without the later post advantage, but I hope this is enough for passing the eliminatories. Rates and comments appreciated!
First of all, I applaud you for the music, story and picture quality because it took some effort to do it.
With regards to the moc, there are some picture shots that are great but the final two pose looked a little messy.
Looks like this guy can pack a punch. Great design, colour is a little bit everywhere, but it's all good. 7/10
I like it

A very nice start to the contest! I love the unique build and background story. It would have been nice to see some custom legs with the build though, mainly because solid blue and silver contrasts with the blended colours of the rest of the moc. But I understand it was a quick build sooooo... 7/10
The idea hereis very good, and I like those fun proportions. Head works well, adn even tough it uses Inika torsos, its well concealed. I think the legs coud be better, they're a bit too small and too close to each other and their connectiont ot he torso doesn't seem to allow much movement.Could use some polishment in overall as well(covering gaps, fixing loose connections, this kind of stuff). Nevertheless, its a very nice creation, and pretty original. Your score them: 7/10
Quoting Raviel .
Simple,yet epic!Although,how do you add a link?I don't know how.
For the group topic, all you need to do is copy the link of your moc in the address bar and paste it to your post. Nothing special needed :) Anything else needed, just ask in the group's question topic.
