I don't have an avatar at the moment, but my first one was a cool picture of my hot-rod, and the second was a "side-ish" profile of myself.
I have thought about a new one though...if I do, it will be that freaky spaceship hovering over the Pentagon in the animated movie "Heavy Metal".

^Yes, I now have a copyright on the idea...so get lost! Its all mine when and if I see fit.
(this post in my proof!) :twisted:
Still, I may post another simple cool looking pic of myself...because I'm so darn cool and all...

That would be a pint sized Quaid (Dragon Blaze) lifted from some Japanese site. They did a superb job and I thank them.

"Beyond The Grave" from the anime and PS2 game "Gungrave". The original game didn't really click with me, but I loved the visual style and the music. And Grave here really suits the shmup-mentality, as anybody who's played the games knows the amount of bullets flying around.

Alex Kidd from Alex Kidd in Miracle World. Simply the best 2D platformer ever and my favourite game of all time.

I always tried to pay respect to my 8-bit roots with my avatars. Therefore I have used the player ship from Katakis and the 001 Influence Device from Paradroid prior to Alex. (And a pic of myself during the shmupsforum picture week - you can't get any more 8-bit goodness than that, can you? :D )

...who knows.

Nabbed from a "ZOMG ANIMATED .GIF FLOOD!!!11!!oneone" on 4chan. If anyone can identify it I'd appreciate it. Basically I just put it there because it's all like "WHEEEEEEEEE" and at the moment I'm all like "WHEEEEEEEEEE"

Old one was The President from Oh! Super Milk Chan, but I got tired of it. Lost the Ash/Satoshi avvie too. -_-

My character... part white lion, part raccoon [though my style doesn't reflect that very well], with my preferred hairstyle.

Lion, because... I'm a Leo [URR HUR HUR], and raccoon because I tend to excessively wash things, like my hands.

No, I don't root through trash :?

a man running, but going nowhere.

I've been using it forever, except for my first couple of months on the old forums. At that time, I had Fio from Metal Slug 2,X,3,4, and 5

Solidus Snake from Metal Gear Solid II:Sons of Liberty.

At first,I wanted to use an image of Big Boss as my AV,but couldn't find one to my liking,so I had to settle with Solidus,who's essentially his identical clone. :?

It's an animation of Pentarou the heroic penguin from Penguin Adventure
on the MSX.
The animation is featured on the "pause" screen of the game.

Penguin Adventure is one of my favourite games ever, partly because I fell in love with the cute Pentarou character (and the fantastic music of the game).

Anyway I use the avatar as a hommage to Pentarou. :D

The fused form of the Seven Heroes, the infamously evil last boss of Romancing SaGa 2. (Well, infamous among all 4 of us outside of Japan who have actually played it. :P)

Anne from Gekirindan.

She's clearly based on Anne of Green Gables, who is one of my favourite literary characters.

K' from the King of Fighters series. I've been using the avatar over at neo-geo.com for about 4 years so I thought I'd just stick with it.

Mine is me... or rather it's "LittleBear", completing the duo that comprise "the2bears". Man, sounds weird. If I was in a platformer, or a brawler, my avatar is how I'd like to be represented :D

Oh yeah, mine's a mummy from the Metal Slug series.

A CG explosion I found online someplace...suitable, since I am called "BulletMagnet" (as explained on the "username" thread, if anyone cares) and my resulting unofficial motto is "Ah done blowed up reeeeal good."

Well, it's a Turrican animated gif. I find the animation to be very smooth, convincing and mesmerizing. It also works as an indicator of how much slowdown I am suffering while I load the forum's pages.

Solidus is a great character... I love his speech "This is where freedom should have been born!"

By the way, you'd want to flip your avatar: Big Boss' eyepatch is on its right eye.
