As of now, Metal Neo currently calls his home The Kokuryuteshi's Realm. More often then not, if one wanted direct contact with him, this would be his primary location. However, based on his job skills, he can also be found in almost any of the known realms scouting information for those within K-World to further analyze and scan. Therefore, you can find Metal Neo almost anywhere you can imagine based on his specialized stealth, spy and assassin type missions.AppearanceFull Body Picture Of Neo
Above is a picture that will link you to full body views of Project Neo if the written description is not enough.Written Appearance:
Project Neo has a rather bizarre and unique appearance when compared to most humanoid beings or even amongst his own kind; demon's. For starters, his head has five long quills that have white stripes running down the center of each quill. Keep note, the edges of his quills are sharp enough to pierce through steel or diamond, shatter spiritual barriers and cause critical damage. So, In addition to that, he also has markings around his eyes in a similar color as the stripes. The next feature in his appearance is that Neo has a pair of black eyes with red irises that are constantly glowing a crimson color; making him rather scary to find in the middle of the night. Alongside that, he has a torso with what appears to be a rocket engine and appears he has a pair of pointed ears with a similar sharp edge as his quills that are red on the inside.
And, on the note of red, it seems that this is a reoccurring theme with Neo's appearance as he appears to have a pair of pointed elf-like shoes that are red in color. Morever, though, he also has a very pronounced body armor that is on him at all times that has black and curved shoulder plates, very large gauntlets and leg armor with very pointed knee caps that seem to have white outlines and a plate covering his pelvis alongside his elf-like shoes. It also appears that he also spots a spiky belt with a black cape that protrudes out of the back of his waist. Final information that can be noted from Neo's apperance is that he stands at about five foot nine, can sometimes be seen having a blue or red demonic aura around him and that he has a pair of claws on each set of hands of his.Note:
For reference, it should also be noted that NOTHING on Metal Neo is made of steel, metal or anything like that. This is actually a very tough material comprised during the course of the experiment, resources from The Kokuryuteshi Research Department and Metal Neo's own power.
____________________________________________________PersonalityQuiet & Reserved:
Metal Neo is not the type of person to express many feelings when around others. If his word is required? He will speak it. Other then that, Metal Neo prefers to keep a low profile based on his stealth like nature. As a result, most who often work alongside of him or know of his existence often take him as the silent killing type. Therefore, many of his co-workers who often do not the same power of as Neo tend to prefer to want to keep their distance from this literal killing machine. Unfortunately, if Metal Neo isn't assigned to put an end to someone's life, he does not actively seek the destruction, death or harm of others who come his way. Thus, despite his looks, Metal Neo will often not attack people unless he is provoked, threatened or otherwise in a dicey situation which calls upon his powers to be used. Overall, there is no point in doing such useless things in the long run as it only creates more nasty complications down the road and more enemies to pile up. So in the end, most who take this silent nature as a sign of animosity are way off compared to what goes on inside of Metal Neo's head.Unfazed:
Metal Neo doesn't seem to be bothered by most circumstances that life tends to throw his way. What this aspect of his personality reflects is that often when he is in the heat of battle, Neo himself doesn't seem to care about much other then the objective at hand and any secondary goals this mission might have in store for him. This means he is not the type to be easily taunted, fall pray to insults given to him by an opponent and he really seems to even apply this aspect to his personal life. Really, apart from Ender, nothing that has occurred in his four hundred years of life that he can recall with his own memories has really been able to shake him up. There is some yearning to learn more about his previous life, yes, but it's not something that keeps Metal Neo from having a peace of mind. It's yet another mission in his life to succeed in until he can get to the roots of his former life before becoming this cybernetic machine. So, based on all of this, Metal Neo seems to have a really thick layer of skin when it comes to life and the problems that come with just being alive.Calculating:
To go hand and hand with his metallic-like origins, Metal Neo is constantly analyzing everything that he comes into contact with. His abilities allow him to do this naturally, yes, but this is more or less referring to whenever he is around other people, within certain environments or in hazardous situations. For example, should Neo be forced to come into contact with those within the echelons of The Kokuryuteshi, he'll often make pleasant conversation; yet at the same time, he'll be scanning all their body language, reading the heat signatures within their body, scanning them for any possible hidden motives and questioning every single move they make until they part ways. In this aspect of his personality, some may call Metal Neo quite paranoid, but the truth of the matter is; his head doesn't see it as such. It's merely another part of him that he has naturally become accustomed to based on the circumstances of his life for all this time he has been reborn. Extremely Focused:
This trait only comes in when he begins to start whatever task he is given to either from Kin or those within The Kokuryuteshi Rankings. Once he is given a mission to complete, he will often stop at almost nothing to make sure it is completed. If it is to wipe an entire village? He will make sure to use every last resource at his current disposal to ensure that the job is done and quickly at that. Need to kill a high profile target? Then he will analyze all their weakness, spy on them, compare his powers to theirs and eventually conjure up a way to brutually slaughter his opponent or silently kill them depending on his mood at the time. Either way, once the mental gears start turning inside of Metal Neo's mind, it's often very hard to stop him from carrying out at a task unless you are the person who gave it to him in the first place. So, he will not stop whatever mission he is doing until he is given orders to otherwise stop. Therefore, it is very unwise to get on Metal Neo's hit list. Oddly Loyal:
Considering the circumstances that he has been placed into due to his unfortunate life, Metal Neo has a strong trait to be loyal towards whoever presents him the best means for shelter, reasoning and overall a sense of having a place to call home. For the time being, he is extremely loyal to Kin Iramasha for giving him a second chance at life out once he escaped the ruins of Ender's former army. Thus, for giving him this great gift, Metal Neo tends to serve both him and those within the ranks of The Kokuryuteshi. After all, unlike Ender, Kin actually gave Metal Neo a sense of freedom, purpose, power and was overall treated like a normal person. However, if he should otherwise begin to doubt the goals, purpose and trust of either Kin or The Kokuryuteshi; Metal Neo has pondered the possibility of going rouge. It's not a high chance according to his logical state of mind, but it's a chance none the less that should be considered if that point should ever arise down the road. Seeks Power, But Not Ultimate Power:
From watching the rise and fall of many types of villains, dictators, mass-murders, criminals and other types of people who otherwise had an obsession for power and dominance; Metal Neo sees no need to obtain some kind of final power like most of his demon brothers. Instead, he only wishes to make himself strong enough to where he can control his power, yet have enough force to throw away those who would otherwise put his mission in jeopardy, are a primary threat to The Kokuryuteshi and pose a danger to his own personal well-being. Thus, he considers himself to have a better chance at survival compared to within K-World in addition their allies in other organizations in the long run. At least, if history has anything to say about it. This trait runs so deep, moreover, that he even limits himself from reaching his full potential too fast based on the fact he doesn't use a highly advanced Za Koa Skill given to him by Ender during his operation to become the ulltimate cybernetic demon.Curious:
After obtaining the finalized cyber brain from Kin's men, Metal Neo began to have a thirst for knowledge as he tried to learn everything he could about the world around him. Based on the fact information is so vague about the person he was before, he simply tried to fill this void outside of missions by just learning as much as he could about anything. He'd often read up on many types of virtual books throughout the many databases in his mind, seek out lost pieces of knowledge throughout the many different realms he has access to with his powers and get so lost in this information quest that it makes the pain of not knowing who he was before bearable as there is so much to learn about existence, reality, the many types of different races that inhabit all the known realms and to possibly unlock a true understanding of what life can really be like if Kin were to ever successfully fulfill his vision of an equal world without the weight of the Soul King bearing down on all those below his feet. Independence:
Most often mistake Metal Neo as some sort of robotic slave, but at the end of the day he does have freedom of choice to make whatever decision he wants by Kin. In his blue prints, Ender had eventually conspired to eventually put a chip inside of his brain to effectively turn him into one of those drone like machines, but based on how Kin ran things by the time he found Metal Neo; these were all but cut out of his final design which resulted in the Mecha Neo everyone knows today. Therefore, he is very grateful in the fact he was given a chance to have his own life and make the actions he desires. It's another reason why he is so loyal to Kin as he, in a way, prevented Metal Neo from completely dying. As he may not have all of his memories, but at least he has the chance to somehow regain them back by not being turned into just another mindless slave to be controlled by some high power. Thus, not a day goes by where Metal Neo does exercise his right to make whatever kind of choice he wants in life. Alignment:
Judging from all aspects of his personality, background and how he currently leads his life; for the time being, Metal Neo is simply Neutral Evil. Even then, that term can be taken as neutral as well if one were to see how Kin views K-World. Thus, in his own mind, Metal Neo is simply a neutral force. He has no desire for mass destruction, murder and chaos in his own mind; but if order comes in order to kill a flock of innocent civilians from an opposing organization such as the Gotei 13 or The Yayjuu, he will not hesitate for a second to enact that order for the benefit of The Kokuryuteshi. And so, some may view him as a mindless killing machine from first glance, but he merely considers himself a person who is good at his job. More often then not, there is nothing personal about the way he operates against those he targets, it's merely business in his mind and that's the way he intends to keep it for as long as he lives on this plane of existence; making him a true neutral person.
Before Ender has gotten his hands on Metal Neo, he was actually living quite the peaceful life in Demon World. At least, as much as demon could, anyway. He was born from a pair of hedgehog-like demon's in a secluded forest within the out lands of this dimension. And, Being the true beast they were, neither of the parents of Neo actually cared for him that much. So, after the mother was done giving labor, she simply dropped him off in the nearest city in order for someone else to fend for her son. This may seem like a cruel act to most, but it was far better then the alternative of what his father had in mind for the son. If he had his way? The monster probably would have devoured his own son in order to steal his life force and thus make himself even stronger. However, the mother saw that as far too barbaric for the new generation's of demon's being brought up within the world and thus decided to simply throw him at someone else so he could be their problem instead of theirs.
And, even in his own life prior to the augmentation, Neo really didn't remember too much about his parents. So, for the most part, this part of his life was mostly vague and he really didn't desire to look too much into it as he was taken in by a strange, cloaked, demon figure for most of his childhood. Never did the man remove his hidden attire, but that was of no concern to Neo as he began to grow older and view the realm of demon's for what it really was. Judging by how things turned out, he was fortunate enough to have some sort of parental figure take him out of the scum of whatever city he was discovered in; rather then being killed that very night had his parents left him in a more uncivilized section of the demon world. After all, Demon World's main principles were of brute force, power and murder. So when it came down to the weaker citizens of this place, they would often act as aggressive and violent as they could to make up for their lack in ultimate power as the ones in the higher echelons of this dimension.
So, from an early age he learned to be grateful for what he had. He appreciated the fact he was able to exist, he was happy to a free demon and not enslaved to someone else, rarely had to deal with the perils of war and had the chance to grow up a decent kid. Although his father figure rarely spoke, he did provide him a place to live, food to eat and the knowledge to arm himself for when he got older and had to deal with more of the scum from Demon World. He constantly gave him countless books about the origins of demon world, biology of the demon body, methods to bring about his true inner demon energy, many different maps filled with the various, ever-expanding sections of demon world and implanted the seed of knowledge that would stay with him long after the experiments he would endure in the future were over. Thus, amused by Neo's ever growing progress, the cloaked man once said he had something most demon's would never have; a sane mind, a stable body and a vast intelligence. Three things which would set him apart from all others and ensure him a lengthy lifetime.
To further test this theory, by the time Neo was of age to be considered a legal adult in the modern world, he was finally sent off by his "father" to live on his own as he had taught him all the things required to sustain himself in demon world. Not wanting to back talk him, Neo merely set off with a bag full tools and set off into the grand world that lay before him. There had been many nights where he endured harsh winter landscapes that nearly froze him to death while sleeping, many types of combat situations where he had fought off various types of creatures that wanted his blood, traveled through countless deserts with an endless supply of unruling heat, met many types of other travelers along the way to which ever direction in life the wind blew and overall he could be considered a wandering adventurer during his many trials and tribulations throughout the next few decades.
Eventually, through all his journeys, he no longer required a stable home environment and forgot all about the person who helped raise him for some odd reason. Instead, he had only his wits to guide him, immense power to obliterate those who otherwise would end his life, great sense of knowledge to direct him towards his true path and a great sense of wonder about the world around him to never have a dull moment. Despite the hardships that came with this kind of lifestyle, it really did fit Neo as he never really stayed in one place for too long. It allowed him to see more of the world, get much stronger through his many encounters with the beast of demon world and expand his mind past the horizon by all that he had learned during his times of isolation and self-discovery in the coldest pits of demon world, to the hottest inferno's it had to offer. Unfortunately for him, not even Neo's highly advanced skills would prepare him for the next chapter in his life that would undoubtedly end who was he and rebirth a new...machine.
One day, when he was wandering an isolated forest within the out lands of demon world, he was followed by a large convey of soldiers from the outside world who apparently were apart of a demon overlord's army. Sensing their presence before he got too deep into the forest, he prepared himself for a battle that would surely be one of his last as the person he was. There were hundreds of them! One after another, with each life that Neo would take, another two would come from the shadow's to try and claim his own life. It was a horrid battle that covered that entire forest in the blood of many countless men and pushed Neo to his absolute limits as he had power outputs that outclassed some of the Shinigami Captains of his time. It was something to truly be admired as with each person he killed, Neo seemly got stronger and stronger until there was no one left to oppose him. As he would stand in the ruins of what was left of the forest, he figured the worse of whatever had attacked him must have been over as there wasn't a single soul left in that fiery pit.
Though, a sense of absolute dread would serge over Neo as he would turn around to find the leader of this so called...army...floating ever so elegantly in the skies above him. Despite having thousands upon thousands of his men slaughtered in the chard remains of this forest, he was still in quite the happy mood from what Neo could tell. By the time he could react, this guy was on top of him faster then he could perceive in his damaged state. Having him conquered, the leader would tighten his grip on the poor demon hedgehog's throat as he seemed to drain the life out of him. Before blacking out, however, this strange and highly powerful man would begin to explain the details of what had occurred on this night. Apparently, from what Neo could comprehend, he had been watched for quite some time during his travels all throughout the realm of the demon world.
Really, it all had started when he had attracted the wrong type of attention after assaulting the wrong group of people during one his travels a few months prior to this night. Apparently, this man's soldiers had happened to be one of the targets Neo had taken out in a raid in some city he had long forgotten based on how often Neo ventured from section to section of Demon World. They were attempting to begin their entry into the realm of demon's after their invasion of the Soul Society, but he had been a wildcard in his plans. To the leader, he was merely a person who was in the wrong place, at the wrong time against the wrong organization. So, they had been tailing all of his fights, monitoring him closely and waiting until he was in an isolated location in order to test just how strong he would be so that Ender, the man who was behind this entire operation from the start and the reason he was in so much shit now, could claim his awesome power for his own as payment for killing his men.
Trying his best at fending the demon overlord off, Ender was simply too much for even a person of his level to fend off and eventually fell prey to his injuries and blacked out. It would most likely be the last time he would be an organic creature ever again. For, after this, he would be under Ender's clutches as he would round him up with a horde of other demon's into his experimental chambers deep below the pits of what is now known as I-44 & PA-N51, The main bases of The Kokuryuteshi's Realm. When he finally came to, they had apparently already done some augmentation on him and forced him to test out some of his cybernetic equipment that was extremely painful for him to endure. Day in and day out, his power would grow and grow, but so would his pain. Eventually, it got to the point where Neo began to question his own sanity because this had been the longest he had ever been confined in one place, he started to forget the outside world with each new extreme Ender placed him under and eventually after one treatment....everything just went black.
Thus, this is where the current story of Metal Neo would begin. In his slumber, Ender would slowly, but surely began to remove all traces of who he was previously in order to form a new mindlessly drone who would be the shining symbol of his new cybernetic demon army. Despite all the failures in his trials, Neo had somehow managed to live long enough to see great advancements in his powers. All that was left needed was to remove his freewill, turn him into another robotic drone, complete the robotic augmentations needed to turn him into an absolute killing machine and begin mass production of lesser versions of Metal Neo, create other similar projects that would possibly out power him and further enhance his army more then it already was at the time as he had complete control over the Soul Society and the Gotei 13. However, this dream would not be realized under Ender, as by the time he was ready to finalize Metal Neo, he had been defeated in a greater then life battle and Earth.
And so, Ender's base began to decay and there Metal Neo lay in his sedated slumber...waiting to be awakened a new being. After Math
Neo was found by Kin Iramasha in the ashes of Ender's base after doing some exploration of the ruins that were left after his defeat. When they began to search through one of the experimental areas of Ender's lair, some of Kin's team had apparently discovered this abandoned project. When he was first discovered it seemed as if he was part flesh and part mechanical; making it seem as if this creature was stopped half-way through production before his masters untimely demise. However, the technology that was equipped on him was far more advanced then anything previously seen in the 21st century. So, from that gain, Kin decided to have his men at the time keep this strange metallic beast within the confines of the newly made Kokuryuteshi in order to possibly learn any secrets that it held, reproduce the materials it was constructed out of and possibly make a resource out of it as a fighter since this experiment seemed to have enough power to deal with even seasoned or veteran level Shinigami Captains.
And thus, after a bit of researching, it appeared that this metal demon was worth salvaging. From the data they could perceive from it's mind, it appeared that this experiment's name was "PROJECT NEO" and was one of Ender's first attempts at merging cybernetics together with the demon race. A feat that would be utterly perfected by the time Kin was released onto the world in 2410 from his entrapment that occurred during the war against The Soul King in the year 2013. This cybernetic upgrade was also the reason why Neo was so viciously strong for his time as it enhanced all of his energy, reflexes, powers and so on and so forth. It would have been a truly remarkable unveiling if Ender had the chance to unleash this beast on his foes. Instead, Kin choose to have his team finish PROJECT NEO to see where the demon would be in terms of power if the experiment was allowed to finish with the resources they had at the time. By the time they had finished, which was around the time Kin had lost the battle against The Soul King, Project Neo was crafted with the finest technology available from all the known realms.
It was especially in K-World's favor that they had completed Project Neo to make up for the lost of Kin; so they were recruiting however many strong fighters they could gather at the time. And, as a result of this, Project Neo was immediately placed into combat situations in order to gather data from his opponents, learn new fighting styles, adapt to new environment and grow as a fighter throughout all these years Kin had been away. And so, in an age where technology is readily available at almost every corner in the edge of all known realms, Neo's time seems to have arrived and is ready to fulfill whatever duty he needs to in order to help his master suceed in his goals.
That, however, is what is on the surface. On the inside, Project Neo still finds himself very perplexed about everything from that hazy day four hundred years ago when the K-World operatives had activated his systems. From what Neo can remember, this wasn't always his name, he wasn't always a slave and he wasn't a robotic freak. It's very hard to access these memories himself as the pre-installed programming from Ender's day's makes it difficult for his brain to try processing this information. Even if he had someone else attempt to read off the information from a secondary computer to him, Neo has still been seen having trouble remembering the things he was told, trying to withhold the data and eventually having varying breakdowns that required repairs to his body. So, with that said, it's almost impossible for Neo to know the true origins of his past. And so, all he can go on is the experimental days of his rebirth.
Those were days were he was filled with so much pain to make him what he is now. The constant tearing of his flesh, the replacement of his bones, the addition of his metallic limbs, his eyes being ripped out of his socket, his heart being removed and all the other horrid flashback he'd rather forget then his actual life that he lead prior to the experiment. This leads him to believe that whoever he was before did NOT go voluntarily with Ender and that there was most likely a struggle as he can remember flashes of him yelling for someone. Who? He couldn't remember. Just like everything else from his previous life. And, for that reason, he has righteous hate against Ender. If he was still around today, there is no doubt in Neo's mind that he would eventually rebel as best as he could against the Demon Lord. Compared to his previous boss, Kin is nothing but a walk in the park as Neo feels he lets him do whatever he feels so long as he gets his mission and jobs done; so he'll simply wait and see what his feelings towards his new master turn into. If things get too heated? He'll simply do what he planned against Ender: Leave K-World, start life anew and rebel against any of his minions should they happen to get into his way.
For now, though? Sticking with these guys is the best bet Neo has in finding some sort of stability and trying to get his mind adjusted to this new world. It's an odd place, but Neo doesn't have much time to think about it when he is busy crushing the skull's of his enemies with his bare metal hands.
Most of his natural born life was spent fighting off many countless demon's, creatures and even some of Ender's elite soldiers. Thus, through hundreds of years of training, Metal Neo was able to reach a point where his strength alone could shatter buildings, beat down other types of supernatural creatures such as Shinigami or Iramasha and effectively allow him a a highly advanced style of hand-to-hand combat. With Metal Neo's raw strength alone, even if he were without his powers, his brute strength would be able to fight on par with most active Captains in the Gotei 13. Thus, Metal Neo's natural strength is something not to be underestimated. If he was without nothing else, he'll still have this strong asset to keep him propelled in a fight until the opponent figures out a way to make Metal Neo or otherwise depose of him during combat.Za Koa Skill:
For the most part, this is one of Metal Neo's more positive traits. It may not be as strong as his durability and defense, but it's a vital asset none the less. His connection to Za Koa is somewhat strong thanks to Ender augmenting the seals across his body based on the fact Ender himself was once apart of Touketsu. Therefore, he had the skills needed in order to awaken Demon Magic within Metal Neo that has previously been unable to be used as he was not the type to make use of it before the surgery had taken place on him. Thus, it is safe to save that anything related to Za Koa he can use with very proficient effeminacy; though it isn't one of his primary focus area's when it comes to his offensive arsenal. It's merely an additional perk that was added upon his surgery from the likes of Ender. Some would call it a blessing, but Metal Neo sometimes considers it a curse based on the fact he believe this had something to do with wiping out his entire memory and his ability to retrieve these memories with his new powers. Demon Magic:
Like his Za Koa, Demon Magic isn't really something Metal Neo focuses on, but he does have a high knowledge of this field. For the most part, he only makes use of his Demon Magic to further augment him his cybernetic enhancements, add additional strength to his overall power by crafting different types of spells to enhance himself and for the most part doesn't really rely too much on Demon Magic as he considers an art that should only be used if all other abilities fail. After all, he has seen what too much reliance on this power has done to other demon's who have fallen prey to users who have anti-magic capacities. Therefore, instead of even making use of his full potential that he has from his awakened magic after the surgery Ender has performed, he still chooses to simply rely on his natural demon traits or cybernetic's in order to deal with an opponent before he reaches a point where he deems himself too strong, and thus lacks in overall skills and cunning mind from relying too heavily on his powers. Cybernetically Enhanced & Naturally Strong Akuma Kyodo:
This is one of Metal Neo's stronger traits out of his natural demon powers. Due to his experimentation when under the guiding hand of Ender, he was given a much more powerful version of this then other counterparts of his tier. On top of the additional seals placed by the seal of Za Koa when a demon is born, Metal Neo's overall defense is augmented by three times thanks to his many operations from both Ender and Kin's Elite scientists. That makes it to where his level of guard is so intense that it can withstand many types of explosions, certain types of direct hits from opponents; such as a cero blast or Chaos Blast, tanking harsh environments (Such as the surface of the sun) and even things on a spiritual level thanks to his natural Akuma Kyodo having a naturally inclined edge to protect himself from anything made from artificial energy. Thus, on that note, one would get deeper into what his Akumda Kyodo is able to do even without the reinforced cybernetic armor that Ender granted him upon his creation and Kin further advanced.
From what Metal Neo is able to understand of his structure before the surgery he was put through, Neo's Akumda Kyodo had an ability that allowed him to have a natural affinity to withstand most types of energy based attacks. This does not mean he negates these types of techniques, but rather is less inclined to take as much damage as one normally would by them. For example, if Metal Neo took on an explosive type of blast from a warhead, he'd be able to come out of the epicenter of this scene of destruction with heavily reduced damage to himself. This trait is further stronger against those who are of weaker tier then him, while those who are stronger typically have more of a chance to make some kind of impact on his body. Moreover, this also applies to anything generated from energy such as magic, Kidō and things of this nature that are used to fight against Metal Neo. It's apart of what makes him very durable.
As for his cyberntically enhanced armor? It's special ability allows him to be naturally shielded from most types of electric attack's based on the fact it works as lightning conductor and zero's out many kinds of attack's that use electricity. Therefore, it allows him a great edge against any type of person who bends lightning or even against natural electricity. Moreover, this armor can also be used in order to essentially make himself more immune to a large variety of attempts to otherwise dismember his cybernetic parts. It basically translates to most types of devices within or generated from Mental Neo are extremely resistant to a vast array of Technology based Manipulation and rarely fall prey to any sort of virus. Even further then that, the armor can also be used to tank most types of projectiles ranging anywhere from a sword strike, to a barrage of metal bullets and possibly even a nuclear blast thanks to the fact Metal Neo has no sort of organic body; and, if his durable core was left in tact, he could slowly start to reform himself over time.
Therefore, Metal Neo's defense isn't something to brush off as it's possibly one of his strongest assets. Shadow Movement:
Apart from his Defense, his speed is probably Metal Neo's greatest asset. Therefore, as a result, Shadow Movement is actually one of Metal Neo's strongest natural demon traits. Based on the fact that his nature is to naturally lurk in the shadow's until otherwise directed, Neo uses this to great advantage as he augments this alongside his cybernetic traits to be naturally inclined to move at insane rates of speed in order to overwhelm an opponent as it often transitions into how fast his attacks are generated or released, it dramatically increases his reaction time in order to evade attack's, grants him even increased mental strength in order to notice an attack or person coming in order to have reaction time to counter the person in question, the attack, an object or anything else within a vicinity that has a presence in order to protect himself and essentially makes him even more of a threat to deal with then he was before during the duration he calls up his Shadow Movement
Moreover, with Metal Neo's natural affinity for energy and his cybernetic traits in absorption, he can use Force Speed at a much faster rate then most types of other demon's with any of his augmentations. So within a one thousand meter radius, he can easily steal the momentum, kinetic energy and velocity of anything that moves to further increase his speed, convert into different types of energy for himself and further allow him to endure the trying trials of a battle. However, he can only perform this roughly three times per post with a one to two post cool down. Though, with other types of Demon Spells or powerful states of being, he can possibly increase the effects or area range of his Force Speed. Even through sheer mental will he could probably increase the area he drains any type of speed force from as this is one of his primary focuses of his combat.
With that said, Metal Neo's speed has many more possibilities then those listed, so he prefers to analyse each battle as they come along in order to figure out what type of enhanced speed-type techniques to use as he believes he can come up with many types of different Shadow Movement abilities. So, depending on his opponent, Metal Neo mostly plays it by ear when he decides to step things up a bit in regards to his speed.
____________________________________________________Neo's Cybernetic Abilities: Extreme Cloaking Skills:
This one of the first perks of Metal Neo's mechanized transformation. Thanks to a heavy amount of technical modifications done to his body, it is nearly impossible to sense, detect or feel any sort of energy generating from Metal Neo's body. This even applies to an Arrancar's Persquia as Metal Neo has the ability to completely hide his presence from that sort of technique as well by producing a cloaking effect with his energy and hiding it off of their radar. In fact, this \trait is so strong that it can even apply to the five senses as well. By infusing his demonic magic together with Kokuryuteshi's elite team of scientific minds and Neo's own power; it is possible for Metal Neo to remove his physical, visual, hearing, smell and even taste from the field by erasing their presence altogether; akin to Urahara Kisuke's Forbidden Kido that hide his presence from even the likes of Aizen. The ability is so strong that it also allows for Metal Neo to remove himself from all sorts of security camera, monitoring techniques forged from any type of magic and can even phase through certain types of shields or barriers based on the fact that they cannot detect him; thus making him one of the perfect spy based minions in Kin's arsenal.Immense Speed:
Without any sort of enhancement, shunpo/soindo/chaos warp type move or anything unnatural, Metal Neo's body has been crafted to reach very devastating speeds. Although this does not happen instantly, Neo has been documented as having one of his top speed's around Mach 10 with no artificial, external or additional powers aiding him other then the ones he was internally built with mixed together with his body former trait that was made for speed before he underwent his cybernetic experiment. It should also be noted that is a more top speed of Metal Neo and on average he typically only moves at Mach 2 or 3 speed during the start of fights before gradually warming up his level of speed from opponent to opponent and situation to sitatuion. Additionally, and obviously, he has the skills needed to move rather easily at these speeds while maintain his sense, has a reaction time to match while having the powers needed to treat every movement he makes as if everything were still moving in average speed; with the world around him making it seem like he is the one of the fastest things out there. Super Brain:
Metal Neo's brain has been redesigned in order to function more like a limitless database. It has a large selection of information gathered from the Kokuryuteshi database, those of Shadow Fall and even some of the Monsuta along with other operatives who were able to sneak into the Gotei 13 on Stefan's watch to gather intel on the Gotei 13 and anything Kin Iramasha had on the Iramasha Clan. Therefore, it goes without saying that Metal Neo's knowledge should never be doubted or tested. Moreover, he is constantly in seek with whatever happens within these five organizations, And, with his own super processor, Metal Neo can perform countless task at the same time in order to manage all of this sanely. He even holds the capacities to perform almost every single piece of offensive equipment that K-World owns without batting much of an eye. What's more, he can even easily augment himself with most types of technological equipment that isn't currently owned by someone once.
This is one of the special abilities that his brain has that allows him to further enhance himself with most types of devices that he comes into contact with. It ranges from wires, gears, computers, databases, hard drives and other pieces of similar origin. It really never gives him any sort of power increase unless there was some sort of core in it, but it does grant him the ability to perform whatever task that gadget in question was suppose to do. For example, if Metal Neo came into contact with a security camera, he would then be able to replicate his own that is connected to his cyber brain in order to place on the spot surveillance equipment across enemy lines to monitor, spy and gather more information about his targets. Therefore, this makes him a highly adaptive person when he is placed within the right type of setting such as a cities, ships, certain facilities and pretty much anything that runs off of a piece of technology that is currently not in use by someone else at the time. Regenerative Core:
This is a special ability that Metal Neo holds where he is able to always come back even if his outer body is destroyed. There is a special piece of equipment, the size of a grain of rice, that is fused together with his soul and consciousness that will be able to recraft Metal Neo's body depending on how much energy he has, is able to steal or others put into him. So, for example, if Metal Neo was hit by a Grand Ray Cero during the start of a fight that utterly destroyed his body; all he would have to do to ensure his survival is that he makes sure that this internal equipment is able to withstand the blast OR he transport it's out of his body to reform himself into the nasty piece of cybernetic demon you see today. Thus, during the start of combat, this regenerative quality is VERY fast and VERY easy to do. However, as the fight proceeds to drag along and more of his energy is used up, it becomes slower and more harder to reform his entire body. Eventually, if he is spent, he'll usually have to eject himself out of the thread to make sure he could rebuild his body once again or find some external energy to consume.
- Durable Core: Since the core keeping this property of Metal Neo is SO small, there is enough to work with to where destroying the Regenerative Core is actually very difficult task. Why is that so? Well, without having to waste mass power sources or resources, Ender and Kin were able to simply make this core about as durable as the likes of Zin Yuudeshi or Daigoto Ito; meaning that it takes something hella powerful to see the demise of this chip. It can withstand many Kidō based attacks, magic based moves, has resistance to reality or time based attacks and, of course, physical attacks or explosions along with a wide range of move not listed. It is, of course, not immune to all of these things; but is is VERY resistance to them and VERY hard to make serious damage on. It's apart of why Metal Neo is so very hard to kill, after all.
- (X2) Absorption Core: This is one of two abilities that the hole in Metal Neo's chest retains from his enhancements from The Kokuryuteshi. The Absorption Core is one of the first abilities that allows him to typically absorb most types of energy that it comes into contact with. This can range from a large library of energies such as Spiritual Energy, Chaos Energy, Elemental Energy, Nature Energy, Reishi, reishi, Certain amounts of Death's Energy, Divine Energy and essentially almost any type of force there is or cannot be made. The only limit's to this special ability? He can only take in as much energy equal to his own natural demonic energy. That means essentially, he can store as much power that is equal to his own in order to make it appear as if a person is fighting against two Metal Neo's. Additionally, this core weakens some what when he starts to take some critical damage and becomes ineffective in regards of trying to gather more energy in injured states. Therefore, this is a trait best used prior to a thread and at the start of fights.
- Electric Core: This is the third core that is found within Metal Neo's body that allows him to make use of Electrokinesis. Any type of lightning, electricity or anything of the like that hits him is tanked by his armor, but then transferred inside of his body in order to add to the additional supply of electricity that is constantly flowing throughout this core. It can be generated through Metal Neo's own power, it can be powered by outside sources or it can be fueled by lightning benders. At the end of the day, it's what grants Metal Neo his electric powers and even some forms of Plasma Manipulation in addition to other types of energy manipulation and Electromagnetism Manipulation. It's also possible for Metal Neo to use this core to sustain himself if his spiritual energy and demon energy reaches zero in a combatant situation and can keep the fight going for far longer then any type of normal demon without it or a person without an alternative power source. Therefore, this ability made Metal Neo a much more vibrant threat after it was installed.
From his regenerative core, Metal Neo also gains a special ability where he is also able to create new attachments for his cybernetic parts. For instance, if someone is able to blow off his head, Metal Neo should be able to activate the Regenerative Core's ability to begin crafting a new head for him by activating varying nanobots stored inside of Metal Neo's body to create new material in order to make him whole once again. And since it's very easy for Mecha Neo to produce this odd material that his body was crafted from, in some cases if the nanobots fail to reform him, he can even reform himself by simply using his own power to craft more of this strange tangible source. Therefore, this makes Metal Neo a pest to deal with as from every attack made him he is typically seen doing some kind of reformation. Even if it's so much as a burnt mark on his body, Metal Neo will activate this ability in order for his body to make the corrections to the damage done upon his body to remove said burnt mark.
In some cases, Metal Neo will even subtract the damage if it's from a weaker opponent then himself. For example, if someone of a lower tier level them himself were to make a successful attack on Metal Neo, it would be possible for his body to simply heal itself from the damage by taking thirty to sixty percent of the damage done to him away varying from situation to situation and opponent to opponent along with the intensity of the attack or complexity of it. And, for higher tier opponents, he is even able to negate ten percent of their damage on average. However, the more hits that his body takes, the more it seems to adapt and the more damage he can even shield himself from the target as the fight moves on. Therefore, the more you damage Metal Neo, the more his body seems to adjust to the situation and take precautions needed to reduce overall damage impact to ensure that Metal Neo is able to last throughout the body and seek victory.
That, however, isn't the last property of his reformation skills. These repairs to his body also has a much deadlier side effect. When repairing himself, Metal Neo is also able analyze how he was damaged and upgrade himself accordingly throughout the course of the battle. For instance, if someone used one of their special abilities on Metal Neo's body, he would eventually begin to scanning the data to see if it's something his body can handle as he cannot utlize every power or ability that comes into contact with his body, attempt to steal the information that he has gathered from the attack, ability, equipment or opponent and then proceed to analyze anything else with it via his body and Cybermind and then store it inside of the Kokuryuteshi's own database to register to the power. From that point onward, he will then be seen gathering a large list of stolen techniques for him to use throughout the course of the battle. An example of this would be Starrk firing off some of his cero guns at Metal Neo, Neo going on to perform this special Analyzation ability and then forming his own Mechanized gun at Starrk to begin firing a mass rate of Boru Shi's at him.
In other words, every time a Metal Neo is in a large variety of way, it can sometimes make him an even worse of an opponent to defeat or damage. Therefore, it is wise to try and take him out as early as possible during a fight or he will simply grow stronger, faster and more cunning as that was the nature of his design. It is even noted that Metal Neo has successfully stolen one of the Devil Iramasha's traits where they get stronger after every battle or defeat; seemly enhancing this power even further and giving him the chance to even make his overall energy stronger if he should face a crushing defeat even. So, even if Metal Neo loses a fight in a critical way, he will even be able to come back from that two times stronger then he was before. This does not translate into his tier becoming two times stronger, but his overall abilities, stamina, strength, speed and so on and so forth.
The only foreseeable drawback that Metal Sonic knows of this ability is that it cannot always copy or translate certain data; meaning it cannot copy EVERY single last thing that comes into to contact with him. And, the fact, that is his core is damaged this ability becomes increasingly hard to manage. The same applies if someone is able to damage his Cyberbrain and it's tripled when they are able to damage before his core and The Cyberbrain.Disruption Chamber:
The hole inside of Metal Neo's chest is actually meant to be used an ability that allows him to halt a wide variety of attacks, abilities, spells, barriers, magic and other related things on the battlefield within a one hundred to five hundred meter radius on average. This is performed through combining Demon Magic as one resources in shutting down most of the energies in the area in addition to forming a sphere around Metal Neo's own body to negate attack's while it is in effect, Metal Neo's own energy as a fuel source and his cybernetic upgrades being used to calculate, program and direct all the different types of factors, complications and variables to figure out solutions to deactive certain moves. This applies to most types of energy attacks, Kidō/magic attacks, physical attacks, all types of elemental users and every source of energy. In addition to that, almost all attack's are negated around the sphere that is seen around Metal Neo's body. However, when this Disruption Chamber is activated, he may only have the sphere that shields himself active for one or two paragraph's when it's activated. Then, on the third paragraph, it must disappear.
Alongside that, all things that are effected from the essential Disruption will return instantly one the next posting turn. In addition to that, they cannot be effected by it again for another two or three post depending on what is going on with Metal Sonic's energy. It is also possible to avoid this effect by simply moving away from the range field and mainly effects everything within it's meter range. Meaning, that if an attack was one meters, Metal Neo would only stop it's effects within five hundred meter range; though it could be possible for him to destroy it for the flow of energy being corrupted. However, the Sphere that shields Metal Neo himself that shatters attacks can be used more frequently, but he has to watch himself as energy is very key in keeping his powers in check. The sphere that surrounds his body can be used at a maximum of three times per post; with a one to three post cool down depending on how many times he used in the post or how many paragraph's it was prolonged. In addition to that, if he tries to overuse this technique, it can end up frying his internal systems and causing serious damage to his own body.
