Spoilers: Did I figure out the villain of Spyborgs?
After a previous failed attempt at being a Jr. Detective I decide to make up for it. Obviously don’t read it if you don’t want to be spoiled (even if it’s just speculation).
Anyway ever since Capcom revealed the new look for Spyborgs and the mention of a former Spyborgs member being the main villain I’ve been looking out for any clues. With some pretty recent info being released I can pretty much put together who the villain is.
It’s this guy.
His name is Jackal and doesn’t he have that menacing look in his face?
Anyway here’s the facts I had to formulate my assumption. The first piece of info is Captivate 09’s trailer. The trailer implies the person talking at 0:11 is the villain. If you compare how he looks like to that picture above we can see a pretty resemblance.
Secondly is the revelation that the main villain would be a previous Spyborg. I’ve already explained this so I don’t think I need to divulge into it anymore.
My suspicions grew that the villain would most likely be Jackal when the first Webisode released. From the comments by the protagonists he fits the villain of the game. He has a bad attitude when he’s not the leader (he probably ditches the team because of this) and he seems to be a mechanical specialist so it’s most likely that robot army was his doing too.
The final piece of the puzzle was the recently released gallery of images for the game. With a clear look at Jackal everything just connected.
Before any of this I was really thinking it would be either Kinetic or the Fish Guy would be the villain as neither has appeared since the redesign but probably not now.
Most likely others have figured this out but I wanted to do something other than more interviews and previews and it was worth the risk of looking like Captain Obvious.
Now there’s obviously more to the story than just the villain so don’t be too mad at me. We still might see the “Fish looking for love…” and there might be some other twists along the way.
P.S. I chose the old logo because I prefer the not-serious feel of the old version of the game. Also keep in mind this is all just speculation.
