Hyper Metal (also referred to as Metal) is a playable hero in Paradigm. It is one of the paid heroes.
Hyper Metal was an experiment created by a bunch of human-monkey hybrid overlords, its purpose being to be the most effective weapon for battle. Having been programmed with a free will by one of the scientists in secret, it refused to obey its masters on start-up and obliterated all of them, going out to seek out ideal uses for itself.
On its way to seek uses, it was attacked by a bunch of monkeys, who tore at its body and made it look tattered and torn. While it managed to kill these extra monkeys off, the robot was severely injured, and fell onto the ground, having been weakened severely. It laid there for a few days, but was discovered by another scientist, this one being just human.
After several touches in the human's lab, Hyper Metal wasn't quite fully repaired, but it tried to escape upon starting up again. Having been stopped via the call of its name, the scientist explained that if it wanted to do something, it should enter the Paradigm to prove its strength -- or something like that. Although rather reluctant at first, it decided to dive straight into the action.
Hyper Metal is a lanky, grey monkey-like robot with several red patches and tears in its body. Its eyes are black with green pupils, and has protective, black-and-red armor around the arms and backside. Its arms and legs are as long as its main body, but can extend and retract if necessary. Attached to its feet are rocket propellers, which allow it to levitate in the air.
Hyper Metal is a light. glass cannon type character. It has average health, high damage, and high speed, but has a very weak defense that allows it to get pummeled in no time. As such, players must play carefully and try to avoid getting hit, and also pay attention to Hyper Metal's attacks, as their end lag can be quite punishable.
- Hyper Metal is somewhat inspired by the Metal Sonic character from the Sonic the Hedgehog series.
