This piece, as seen from beginning to end, is, as I consider it, a masterpiece. The original piece was simple and well drawn, and as progression was made, more and more detail was added. From the details on each of the Robot Masters, foreground and background, to the complex shading of the piece, to the emotion of the two sword-based Robot Masters, the rookie and the veteran, clashing it out to find out who truly deserves the title of sword master. This reminds me of the kind of clash we saw when Roronoa Zoro first clashed with Dracule Mihawk, and prognosticates the kind fight we want to see from those two as they clash again: The master with a legendary sword versus the rookie who strives to overcome him. Again, this piece is, as I consider it, a masterpiece.

The Artist thought this was FAIR
31 out of 31 deviants thought this was fair.

OK, there are three possibilities: 1) this is when Dr. Wily remotely activated the Roboenza cache in Strike Man's body, 2) he was pretty pissed off at whoever was batting, or 3) [insert your own funny reason here because I can't think of a third]. Nevertheless, this is it only funny, but also part of MM canon. Don't believe me? Here's part of his entry in the field guide: "One time, his unsportsmanlike temper led to the hospitalization of an opponent he didn't care for when he struck them with an incredibly fierce pitch." See? Either way, great job here.

Voltage Man: "Umm...excuse me?"

Nitro Man: "What is it, Volty?"

Voltage Man: "I'm kinda confused. Don't get me wrong, this is awesome; I don't exactly know why these fights are held."

Nitro Man: "It's for who gets to sleep with Splash. The winner does just that."

Voltage Man: "That's RIDICULOUS! Why would you-" *noticed Splash, and wolf's whistle*

It was definitely worth the effort! Very good picture. I'm rooting for SwordMan because Blademan gets on my nerves.XD

yukon(faker of crystal man): i've paid for both, cause i own them and if one of them loses, i still win. MWAHAHAHAHAHA!!! there's hiding clown man, freeze man, gyro man and wind man.
wynman97 Featured By Owner Sep 7, 2011
I'm going to analyze it in a way.
Sword man: Great physical strength, one sword, and a strength that is also a weakness. That being his gravitational righting system. Blade man, being quicker than him, has more of a chance of attacking it.

Blade man: Light on his feet, quick, fast, and with two blades on his arms. His only real weakness could be the fact that he's small, and fast meaning he is probably lightly armored.

In the end, I'd say Blade man. He's alot faster.
Ubergamer234 Featured By Owner Nov 5, 2013
Ah, but you missed a couple of factors: In MM8 Swordman can cause objects to fall from the ceiling, which could cancel out Blademan's ability to climb walls and leave him open.. Also, Swordman posseses the fire element, whilst Blademan can attack from a distance. Can't give much of a verdict, just noting some things you missed.

Whats the name of the Robot with the fire sword

good work keep going with the next ones drawings
SagashiIndustries Featured By Owner Mar 3, 2010
I can only really think of one thing wrong and that's with some of the choices for background robots. The MM1, MM4, and MM9 bots aren't Wily-bots and do not work for him at the time MM10 takes place, so they really shouldn't be there. It's still completely awesome, I just couldn't help but notice that.
CartoonCats101 Featured By Owner Dec 6, 2014
Does that suddenly make the artwork bad?
MajinHentaix2 Featured By Owner Mar 2, 2010
Excellent work Garth I'm sorry you didn't win. Hell you finished in fourth place. Thats better than Naruto did when it debuted got its ass kicked by One Piece and Jojo, Case Closed, and Hunter X Hunter.
