Shadow Jago & Gargos
« on: December 14, 2013, 06:27:59 PM »

This may not be a big of a deal, but I found this thing rather interesting. It was always interesting to know who is Shadow Jago or at least why is he evil? Well after I got myself the KI Ultra Fan book, in Jago's section there was actually a small explanation - "Possessed by the evil spirit of Gargos, Shadow Jago is a variation of Jago." What I noticed next is a still photo of SH activating his instinct and instead of the tiger there was a face of some demon. I honestly never noticed the face whenever I watched gameplay videos. I just thought it was the tiger only colored white. Looking closer and remembering about Gargos, it became obvious that the demons face is actually Gargos. And it makes sense - after possessing Jago's body he no longer needs to pretend being the "Tiger spirit" so upon activating Instinct he shows his real face. So after firing up Photoshop I did some investigating.

Funny enough he looks pretty much the same only now sporting lots of spikes on his head. So in a way Gargos is indirectly in the new game, only using Jago's body. I always preferred Gargos over Eyedol, because surprisingly Gargos has a more expanded story on who he is and how he came to be, plus pulling strings with Jago to do his bidding and all. Oh and how could I forget his rockin' battle theme! :D

Any thoughts on my observation?

Great observation. You should spread the word via youtube, LOL

Maybe they'll integrate Gargos' moveset with Shadow Jago's to further differentiate the characters. And if SJ's possessed by Gargos, maybe Eyedol will have something to do with Spinal?

More Easter Eggs, NOW!

Yo son! XD

Maybe DH will change the name of "Shadow Jago" just to GARGOS down the line. You know give him a demonic wings double jump, or a long Black Spear Breath thing, And a laugh taunt..... That'd be cool XD *you know when he becomes his own guy*

 But of course keep Shadow Jago with a alt for Normal Jago

I could see this working, wonder if that is there intent or not.
