Chroma, The New Dragon Frame (Teased In Devstream 45, 46, Tennolive) Anticipation Megathread

Recommended Posts

So now I'm wondering why you don't think a dinosaur resembles a dragon or lizard? 

 

 

Is a dinosaur not a lizard now? LOL.

 

And as I said book definition.. BOOK definition of a dragon with the exception of wings fits godzilla in every single one of his movies.

 

the same can be said about chroma in the sense that he is the manifested warfare themed DRAGON based/inspired off of the chinese archetypes. and I didn't want to say this earlier but he's recognized as a deity/superpower compared to other frames as pointed out by order and lotus in the files that were datamined.

After recent discoveries of the 21st century, it is safe to say that dinosaurs were birds.

Hindu=/=all societies with classes. And the culture from one caste to the next is still incredibly different in the hindu example. Sharing a common religion, doesn't change that.

I know that not all of them don't. The point I am trying to get across is that the Tenno were within the same caste system and culture as the Orokin and that Chroma is essentially both of their designs, as well as the Tenno themselves may or may not have had some (if very little) role in the design of the Warframes. Yes, there is proof that the Orokin had a heavy impact on the Warframe designs, but there's also no way we can't say the Tenno had absolutely no part in that process ever.

 

We don't know a lot about the Tenno/Orokin Culture, which is why speculation helps bridge the gap. Such as when the community had attempted to decipher the Grineer, Corpus, and Tenno/Orokin language/alphabet. There was speculation involved as well as research. With very little knowledge of their culture, we are left to mostly speculate. Chroma could very well be part of their depiction of a dragon, hence why it looks like what people describe it as.

Ever have ox tails? Probably be like that, an acquired taste not worth acquiring, but I imagine it makes the most AMAZING sounds running around on fire, and all that short fur would go up fast.

Drinking game. For every time OP says cosmetics, take a shot. You'll either be dead, or passed out before you finish reading. Even without alcohol, that wall of text is lulling me to sleep.

it appears to be entirely quest related. No relation to J3 Golem (Which isn't coming out for awhile, so why delay Chroma?)

If they're connected to his arms, means that his ARMS use to be wings, as I stated above. and they evolved into normal arms, but the wing bits stayed as they haven't fully evolved away. Wing membrane is still growing on the arms. (Note I;m not saying that's literally how this warframe was made, just stating how it "could" would from a biological standpoint)

 

Edit: Tired, seems most people have calmed down or understand the "Sea Dragon" aspect. Going to bed.

Seeing as the wings would have been the arms, there is no way they would stick out like that from behind his shoulders after evolving into limbs. You can just look at animals today to see this.

Book definition of dragon?

 

"an imaginary animal that can breathe out fire and looks like a very large lizard with wings, a long tail, and large claws"

 

Godzilla is imaginary, but within the context of his fiction he isn't (he's basically a dinosaur). He doesn't breathe fire. He only vaguely resembles a lizard (very humanoid). He doesn't have wings. His tail IS long. His claws are not.

No, not really. He looks nothing like any Chinese dragons I've seen (I even refreshed my memory by googling it). He's a superpowered anteater, not a dragon.

You do realize that these dragons have thousands of interpretations? One or two pictures you see will mean nothing. These do not exist as a single artist's interpretation, or a real-life creature to give comparison.

A Basilisk is not commonly regarded as shape-shifting. It is a reptilian creature, possibly a snake or legged, that can kill with a glance. Shape-shifting isn't a part of that.

 

"Stories gradually added to the basilisk's deadly capabilities, such as describing it as a larger beast, capable of breathing fire and killing with the sound of its voice. Some writers even claimed it could kill not only by touch, but also by touching something that is touching the victim, like a sword held in the hand. Also, some stories claim its breath is highly toxic and will cause death, usually immediately. The basilisk is also the guardian creature and traditional symbol of the Swiss city Basel."

Neaks are often depicted of Nāga.

Yes, those are wiki links. 

If you do not like wiki links, you can use the sources this information is taken from by following the references at the bottom of the page.

You do realize that neither naga or basilisk is considered as dragons in tales right?

Simple, You can tell a dinosaur and a dragon apart.

 

I think you answered your own question there champ, Because I'm sure that a Dinosaur is not a lizard, they'd be classed as reptiles, but they wouldn't be related to lizards in any way.

 

Godzilla isn't a dragon because you can tell he's not a dragon.

I guess many people expected the europian dragon and/or the eastern dragon design. But there are many versions of dragons every culture has its own -design-. So for me it seems they have picked a more uncommon one to match the tenno feeling to it.

That's your theory, which is in no way more credible than a direct quote from the actual lore. That quote indicates that (given all we know at this moment) they didn't have anything to do with their frames since it was the orokin who built them around the tenno's twisted bodies. You're theorycrafting in an attempt to support your own argument.

 

Chroma looks like an anteater.

To further this, here is the definition of a lizard "a type of reptile that has four legs and a long body and tail"

 

It doesn't describe Godzilla.

Every complaint I've seen about cosmetics changing gameplay has had no valid reasoning for wanting to remove them. It's honestly idiots like OP and others who agree with him that stripped us of our chances to get arcane helmets. And the examples they give, completely outrageous and grossly over exaggerated. It's just energy color. One, small mechanic on one small frame that will most likely be Mastery Fodder anyways. Now just shut up and deal with it. Your precious energy colors and your opinions can go away.

I didnt expected a literal dragon, just dragonic armor, sorta like "black dragon form" in Dark Souls 2(would post picture, but im too lazy) What i did not expect was pile of meat with ant-eater head.

Chroma looks like an anteater.

It's a theory that's highly supported by the fact that the Tenno were considered rejects to the Orokin. The Tenno were likely at the bottom of the caste system, much like how a caste system has the rejects at the bottom. I'd rather theorycraft something plausible based on excerpt from the lore that's in the game than simply state that since there is no other lore associated that it's not true. You are explicitly saying that we don't have all of the information right now. My speculation is based on the fact that the Orokin refer to Tenno as rejects and then as god-warriors. It makes sense to tie this to them being within a caste system that they've created. It makes sense to assume that they once shared the same culture before the Orokin Empire fell silent, and that every Warframe was built/designed during the Orokin's reign.
