[Mini-Boss Idea] Derf Anyo, Son Of Nef [The Immortal Megathread]

1,441 posts in this topic

Now that I stopped laughing, my only response is that they treat it like the Stalker when he appears, as in he doesn't exist ;3

Only the Tenno have the ability to wield the Warframes and therefore the powers are exclusive to them as well i.e. no slash-dash, no Ash smoke bomb for Derf...not saying he couldn't use Corpus' teleporting system.

Chief Anyo is such a horrible boss that HE is already joke, his son doesnt need to be one. His son SHOULD be the serious fight

 

Maybe as an update to this encounter after you easily beat Anyo the son appears as a second boss fight. A cut scene introduces him and he says, "My name is Derf Anyo. You killed my father. Prepare to die."

 

His shields dont regenerate but he Stone Skin's when they are depleted for a period of time.

He he drops and active decoy so the player has to figure out the correct Anyo.

And he super jumps toward players landing with a melee strike.

That gave me an idea, what if he tries to immitate Tenno skills with conventional weapons?

Slash dash? Rocket-boots and some blue fireworks!

Well that's why his slash dash fails and kills his own teammates. He has cheap knock-off abilities that don't work right. Also, >implying that he couldn't use actual smoke bombs instead of using Ash's ability. You know that smoke bombs are actual items that exist in real life, right? You don't need to be a Tenno to use them.

I can't help but feel that you're kind of missing the joke. Yes, we all want big bosses that are actual challenges, but this is the joke version of the Stalker with a bit of tongue-in-cheek nerd humour mixed in. If you want a serious fight that chases you down in the levels, go and find the Stalker. I'm sure he'll give you a run for your money.

Could explain how he fails at using Slash Dash. Anyway, this is a hilarious joke, and would be funny in game, but I feel the hilarity should be kept subtle, and the game should be kept serious.

The quote i used for his introductions should show that i did get the joke.... if you didn't get that quote. I am just saying that this idea has the opportunity to actually be turned into something.

You think I didn't get the quote? Might I direct you to the post that I made before you, here:

 

 

I approve of this kind of lighthearted, humourous boss! The concept is great, and I love your illustration.

 

Surely he should appear after you've killed his father, saying:

 

"My name is Derf Anyo. You killed my father, prepare to die."

 

The point I'm making is that in keeping with the lightheartedness of this concept, he should also be a weak boss. It's no good if you are actually afraid to fight this guy. It should be a welcome visitation, not a horrific ordeal. That's why I think he shouldn't be a decent challenge.

Haha, who doesn't know?

 

What I meant to say is that he can't use Ash's smoke-screen ability; wouldn't be in line with the lore. Of course he could use a simple smoke-bomb, but that would make him hard to see, not invisible like Ash. It's why I added "...not saying he couldn't use Corpus' teleporting system" implying that he would have to use other means of Corpus design.

You sir, are a silly goose, other than I think the three Corpus Proxies (Hyena, Ambulas, Jackal) Every boss in the game uses at LEAST one Frame power, some multiples.

 

Hell, the boss who drops Ash parts uses damn near all of Excalibur's Load Out. (Slash Dash, whateverthatradialpulsethatisn'tradialjavalinis, and the super jump.)

 

Hek, NEF uses Smoke Bomb. His son using it makes sense.

 

Also: All of the plus ones for this idea, having a more light hearted random event to laugh and feel good about, would be nice.

 

Also: the alternate helms are cute, XP.

 

Also Also: I didn't have enough alsos. ._.

Ok, everyone got everything.

I just suggested a slightly different route since all that stuff you use to describe Derf applies to Anyo currently.
