Captain N: Mother Brain by kevinbolk Captain N: Mother Brain by kevinbolk
Well, it took me a bit, but I'm continuing my series of Captain N redesigns with the villains of Video-Land.

And how appropriate that the biggest pain in the butt to design and color would be the big bad Mother Brain herself. I took inspiration from how she appears in Super Metroid (before her transformation). As a matter of fact, I had the final boss music playing as I designed her and I think she's all the more terrifying as a result.

Can you picture Levi Stubbs voice coming out of this? (with some layering and a nasty echo) Hell yes!!

I always thought Captain N was the first attempt by anyone to make a SMASH BROS.  I wonder what everyone else thinks about that thought.

Well, I've already commented on this one, but I did a search for "Captain N Mother Brain" and this was the top DA result. I'm still struck by what a good blend this is, so much so that I didn't realize at first that it wasn't the old Captain N design.

It would definitely make things different, but I kinda wish this was the Mother Brain used in the games! Imagine what Other M would have been like with that wishy-washy Samus up against Levi Stubbs? Oh gosh!

Mi-ya-mo-to..! KILL IT WITH FIRE! We never got Captain N here in England, but if the villain looked anything like your version, I think I'd still be having nightmares!

Maybe the Mother Brain from the original Captain Planet was just a clone of the true mother brain that was defeated by Samus.

Ah, another vile mockery from Captain N.

Thank god something like Captain N didn't come out today, otherwise it would've ruined videogames in the public's eye forever.

personality/character-wise would've preferred her to actually be just pure evil instead of ironically vain. That's what always annoyed me about the original cartoon. The others can be total dorks, and whatnot but the "big boss" of the villain group should act like someone who's not to be messed with.

Ha, classic. I always got a 80s Little shop of horrors vibe from the cartoon mother brain, just recently found out that both the plant and mother brain were voiced by Levi Stubbs.

A really nice combination of elements from Super Metroid and Captain N. A very unique Mother Brain indeed.

Very nice. She's got a real "OH HAI GUYZ" expression there. Anyway, it's nice how your new designs actually have something to do with the game characters, as opposed to the original show.
