Awesomenauts Character Spotlight: Clunk

By Dog of Thunder, 5 years ago
Ronimo Games, the company of madmen behind Awesomenauts, is making sure the upcoming XBLA title has a style all of its own. Witness the rapping frog or the cowboy that escaped from a race of semi-intelligent space cows. Adding to the insanity is today's entry, Clunk.

Clunk is a robot suffering from anger management issues. He's saving up money to pay for therapy, but keeps losing it all due to damage compensations. Originally created as part of a robot army built to combat an immensely powerful super villain terrorizing the outer star systems. Clunk found himself without a job when the villain accidentally died of a nasty bacterial infection before the army could be completed.

This was actually a blessing in disguise for Clunk, since he was never designed to return in one piece from his mission. He was refitted to do standard housekeeping work, but soon found himself out of work once more as he kept blowing aggression inhibitors and subsequently went into immensely destructive tantrums.

Eventually, Clunk signed up as a mercenary to do what he is best at: wrecking things. He found that finally giving in to his aggressive nature has given him great inner peace. Nowadays he takes great pleasure in jetting around the battlefield, blowing up in people's faces to the sound of heavy metal.
Clunk's abilities in battle include Bite (deal damage and gain life), Self-Destruct (convert damage taken to damage given), Missile (it's a missile) and finally, Jet Boost, as much like white human males, a giant combat robot can not jump.

Here are two videos of Clunk in action:
