Classic Dueling Analogs #9 [ COMIC ]

Wow, I can’t believe it’s actually been five years since I created this comic. I also want to note that this comic was made during my “it needs to be 100% vector” phase. I have since moved on from that to the “whatever medium best suits the joke and/or fits without me having to do a lot of extra work” phase.

The past weekend was Memorial Day weekend here in the United States. Spent it with the family and pretty much stayed away from computers as much as humanly possible during that time. Thought that putting a classic comic up would be a better alternative to just saying, “No comic on Monday. Come back on Thursday!” I had contemplated about doing a new consoles comic, but the polarizing opinions about them swayed me from that decision. Nonetheless, this comic being five years old means that a huge chunk of the people seeing this are now seeing it for the very first time. Dueling Analogs does have an archive section. Make sure to check it out.

Lastly, don’t forget that today is the final day to preorder your Koopa shirt from and save $2 off the regular price.

    I’d like to point out that Dr. Light did not create a single Reploid. He made X, then died, then some guy named Cain I think dug X up and used him as a blueprint to make the first Reploids.

    So I suppose that makes every Reploid X’s brothers, sisters, children?

    X I am your Father!
    Actually since I was built first and you’re a copy of my design I’m actually your father.
    Oh…so…can I have an advance on my allowance?
    No. *charge shot to the face*

    Or maybe Cain’s the daddy and X is the mommy of all Reploids…

      sorry the dialog above is suppose to be between Sigma and X.

  • Palmer

    Megaman 2 – The Metal Blade could shoot in all 8 directions, including Up.

    • Metal Man was created by Dr. Wily.

    • PrinceJon

      That’s Metal Man’s weapon, he was built by Wily not Light.

      A better example would be Elec Man’s Thunder Beam, it shoot’s up and he was made by Light.

      • PrinceJon

        OH SHI- Ninja’d by the creator what an honor.

      • Mega Man never shoots the weapon upward. It disperses both upward and downward, but he only ever fires it straight ahead.

          I read this in Dwight Schrute’s voice. Now you all will too!

  • BigLord

    This was one of the best ones. Wow, I can’t remember I followed you even back then… it’s been 5 years already? FIVE YEARS!?

    What have I done with my life?…

  • Nobody

    One of the capsules in the first X game gave you the ability to shoot vertically. Blaster upgrade + Storm Falcon’s weapon creates a vertical shot hitting both above and below you.

    Probably an unintended side effect of combining tech but the upgrade was made by Light.

  • Wow, nostalgia… I’ve been following DA since the start, good Morgan Freeman we’re all getting old…

  • Brefin

    I was literally JUST thinking about this comic three days ago. Been introducing my girlfriend to the Megaman series and, while playing Powered Up, she asked “Why can’t he shoot up?”
    After giggling like an idiot for a short while, I replied “He’ll never be able to… Get used to it.”

  • The Anarchyz

    I saw this comic when it was originally posted, and until now i see the error, DAMN!!!
    It’s true, Dr. Light created X, Cain reverse-engineered X design to make the Reploids…

    Speaking of… I’m still waiting for Capcom to tell the story of what happened between the classic and X series… Ever since i saw the X4 Zero FMVs, and Willy showing Bass the Zero design in the arcade game, i’m not able to sleep at night (ok, maybe i’m exaggerating XD )

  • ClashMovator

    Why doesn’t Mega Man do heroin? Because he can’t shoot up!
