Subject 050 is a playable hero in Paradigm. It is the 50th overall and one of the paid heroes released after launch.

Background

Travelling through the Paradigm is thought to be new technology, but Earth's greatest scientists were shocked to find a massive facility displaced in time and space, quite literally weaving in and out of worlds and leaving destruction in its wake. It quickly became known as the Crypt, and further studies revealed that not did the station house a massive imperfect version of the engine used to travel through Paradigm, but that it housed experiments.

Most of the initial subjects were harmless organic creations, but as more and more were retrieved, the government began finding empty containment units, missing documents. The final discovery made was "Subject 050", an ever-adapting single celled organism. Seeking to weaponize it, Subject 050 was given a control collar and deployed for highly secretive test missions in the Paradigm.

Description

In its "Living Slate" formation, Subject 050 is a tall, lanky creature, resembling a grey-ish blue amoeba 'stretched out' into an abnormally tall human silhoutte. It has three stubby fingers on each 'hand' and a large nucleus acts as an eye of sorts. The gel forming its body will gain a tint based on its actions, moving towards fuschia if the player fights and green if they defend.

Eventually, Subject 050 will change its form to reflect its actions. If played aggresively, its body will turn a vivid red and horns will sprout from its nucleus, piercing its outer hody. If played defensively, it becomes lime green and a large bony plate connected to the nucleus emerges from its "forehead". Neutral play will lead to its blue body growing more vivid, and a second nucleus orbiting the first.

Subject 050 is incapable of communication and highly antisocial. It runs mostly off instinct, but often acts far more cruel and cunning than its animalistic tendencies suggest. Instead of voice lines to indicate threats, Subject 050 screeches, and its nucleus blinks with light.

Gameplay

Subject 050 is an absolute blank slate at the start of a match, with a fairly average movement speed, no reliable killing attacks, and a lot of health to work with. Players must keep track of an aggresion meter below his health bar; the meter is split into three portions, with a red half and a green half that move further for aggresive and supportive play, respectively. Once Subject 050 hits 50% health, it undertakes one of three transformations:

  • If the aggresion meter has two red sections, it will become the violent "Living Sword".
  • If the aggresion meter had two green sections, it will become the defensive "Living Shield".
  • If the middle portion is a mix of red and green, it will become the balanced "Living Emisarry".

Movelist

Living Slate

Quick Attack Heavy Attack
Clobber Subject 050 swings its fists in a downward arc directly in front of itself. Screech Subject 050 lets out a piercing scream, damaging nearby enemies. You can hold down V2Action Green to keep attacking, but Subject 050 can't move until the attack is over.
Special Ability 1 Special Abiity 2
Apex Predator Subject 050 turns into a living projectile, its arms intertwined into a massive drill. You can steer its path slightly, but for the most part it can only move forward in this state. Hitting an enemy deals a decent amount of damage, but hitting a wall does recoil damage to Subject 050. Symbiotic Subject 050 generates two massive "blobs" of the substance that forms its body. These orbit its body, serving a dual purpose; allies that walk into one get healed, and enemies that walk into one get stunned temporarily. The orbs disappear after 8 seconds if nobody walks into them.
Paradigm Shift Passive Trait
Rapid Evolution If Subject 050 fills its Paradigm Shift meter before reaching 50% health, it can change form by activating its Shift instead. Adaptive The aggresion meter is counted as a Passive Ability within Paradigm's menus. Playing offensively or defensively will change Subject 050's form when it reaches 50% health.

Living Sword

Quick Attack Heavy Attack
Slash Subject 050 turns its hands into massive spikes and does several sweeping slashes in front of itself Ultrasonic Subject 050 can charge up an ultrasonic screech by holding down V2Action Green. The attack must be charged for at least 3 seconds, and can be "held" by charging for 5 seconds, allowing you to use it instantly later.
Special Ability 1 Special Abiity 2
Apex Javelin Subject 050 turns its whole body into a spear, homing in on the closest enemy and lunging directly to them. This works well as a mobility tool and killing move, but requires that you be within range of the enemy. Apex Jaws Subject 050 creates two orbs from its body and they shape into a set of jaws, clamping down on any enemy who gets in front of it.
Paradigm Shift Passive Trait
Living Catastrophe Subject 050 undertakes a temporary evolution, becoming a four-armed beast with a scorpion-like tail. The Living Catastrophe can only use two attacks; a series of rapid punches for its Quick and Heavy Attack buttons, and a powerful lunge for its Special Ability buttons. Any damage it deals is converted into health for nearby allies, but the form only lasts 15 seconds, so use it wisely. Aggressive Subject 050 gets healed slightly for every kill it gets.

Living Shield

Quick Attack Heavy Attack
Whip Subject 050 turns its hands into whips and strikes twice in a sweeping range in front of itself. Bassboost Subject 050 releases a burst of sound, knocking back enemies. Holding down V2Action Green keeps it firing; Subject 050 can keep moving, but it has a cooldown of 6 seconds betweem bursts.
Special Ability 1 Special Abiity 2
Apex Guillotine Subject 050 turns its whole body into an axe and hovers in the air, striking downwards after a few seconds. It is immune while hovering, but the move has terrible range. Apex Spill Subject 050 creates two orbs from its body and they splatter into healing fields that linger for 10 seconds. The orbs start directly left and right of Subject 050, but can be aimed diagonally, although they always remain parallel.
Paradigm Shift Passive Trait
Living Catastrophe Subject 050 undertakes a temporary evolution, becoming a four-armed beast with a scorpion-like tail. The Living Catastrophe can only use two attacks; a series of rapid punches for its Quick and Heavy Attack buttons, and a powerful lunge for its Special Ability buttons. Any damage it deals is converted into health for nearby allies, but the form only lasts 15 seconds, so use it wisely. Passive Subject 050 gets a damage boost everytime it heals an ally.

Living Emisarry

Quick Attack Heavy Attack
Clobber Subject 050 swings its fists in a downward arc directly in front of itself. Soundwave Subject 050 lets out a concentrated 'beam' of sound, damaging enemies. You can hold down V2Action Green to keep attacking and aim left and right, but Subject 050 can't move until the attack is over.
Special Ability 1 Special Abiity 2
Apex Engine Subject 050 forms its body into a wheel, rolling forward hastily. It cannot deal damage, but hitting enemies has high knockback and a brief stun. The move stops when Subject 050 is damaged or hits a wall. Apex Monolith Subject 050 shapes its body into a monolith. It remains stationary for ten seconds, but takes one-third of regular damage in this state.
Paradigm Shift Passive Trait
Living Catastrophe Subject 050 undertakes a temporary evolution, becoming a four-armed beast with a scorpion-like tail. The Living Catastrophe can only use two attacks; a series of rapid punches for its Quick and Heavy Attack buttons, and a powerful lunge for its Special Ability buttons. Any damage it deals is converted into health for nearby allies, but the form only lasts 15 seconds, so use it wisely. Inner Balance Debuffs last only half as long when applied to Subject 050.
