OH YEAHHUH, SNAP INTO A SLIM JIM
I'm honestly impressed, if for the fact that there's not very many Nazi inspired villains, than outright Nazis in general.Also, Dr. Caulder from Advance Wars: Days of Ruin (also known as Dr. Stolos or Dr. Bereth - the names of demons from Ars Goetia)
Was a war criminal who performed human experimentation and biological weapons testing on subjects. He created several clone children, and forced some of his children to fly an aircraft on a suicide mission to kill his enemies. Also murdered his clone "son" with poison after he learned he had betrayed him. Very sadistic fellow.
I think he was inspired by Joseph Mengele (Nazi war criminal who did cloning experiments) and Shiro Ishii (Japanese war criminal from WWII who ran Unit 731 and performed biological weapons testing on subjects).
Let's raise up that ante for a villain that @SSF2T Old User would be further impressed by.
Introducing Dr. Edward Bilstein of Star Gladiator.
For such a somewhat obscured character from an experimental fighting game of Capcom's you'd think Bilstein is but another Darth Vader wannabee.
Before Lucas Baker, before Brian Irons, before William Birkin, before Albert Wesker became the memetic cold god that Resident Evil fans worshipped the ground he walked on, before Dr. Weil, before Seth, there was Dr. Edward Bilstein. This motherfucker was the mutant bastard spawn of M.Bison/Vega/Dictator, Gill, Grandmaster Meio, Darth Vader, Darth Sidious, Khan, Ming the Merciless, Joseph Mengele, Heinrich Himmler, and Hitler combined. And from 1996 no less.
Edward comes from a typical American household.... a household of Nazi Germany refugees by which he's the 13th generation of by the year 2318. His great ancestor, Victor Bilstein, originally was a Nazi scientist who experimented on concentration camp internees for the Wunderwaft and Die Glocke superweapons programs of the Nazis, and his research was on correlating paranormal powers of the mind to the fantastical miracles and powers that are spoken of in human history and myth. By the time the Allies came in however, he was too late to finish his last experiment that would prove his results, and was forced to find refuge with the German American Bund communities in the States. When WWII was won by the Allies, he committed suicide, leaving behind his family of his wife and his offspring.
By the 24th Century, Edward was in college. A typical science nerd, Ed however held a streak of sociopathy that no one caught onto when everyone's backs was turned, enjoying cruel manipulation and sadistic streaks to break people psychologically and physically if he felt like it. When he came home from college on break, he killed the family dog out back just because he got tired of the barking. We all know where this is going.
That time he came home was spring cleaning day, and his father tasked him with clearing out and organizing the attic. Checking out the old heirlooms and antiques of the Bilstein family, Ed eventually came across Victor's belongings, and sifted through them, until coming across an old series of documents. Ed was going to trash them, but suddenly, Victor's genetic memory echoed through his head, beckoning him to read it. Going further into insanity, and realizing that the document was about Victor's experiments, Edward went back to college immediately to finish what his ancestor started. Ed by this time was only seen in class and the university lab, he missed out on LAN parties, football games, frathouse parties, hooking up with the girls, and alienated all of his friends, some of whom caught Ed's experiments at the lab and never came back.
Ed then introduced his results and plans to the dean of the college, and he then got funding for his projects. For the next few decades, Bilstein got the chance to live it on easy street and carry out his research in laboratories all over the world. and eventually got the Nobel Peace Prize for his discovery of Plasma Power, which was a huge leap in thermodynamics and physiology that showcased the existence of the sixth sense of the mind and could manipulate the fourth form of matter. It wasn't with much fanfare upon trying to apply it in the Earth Federation Forces because it would require more training and money to realize, but the Federation used it as a superweapon to get other planets to comply with their demands.
That's until the feds did something useful for once, and arrested him for numerous human rights violations he racked up over the years. Turns out he only realized Plasma Power by experimenting on countless people kidnapped and abducted by him, and it's been stated that the experiments tend to involve cutting open and surgically altering your brain while still awake. He was sent to prison and sentenced to life without parole, until he was able to snake about the orbital prison he was on and got enough resources to build himself a cyborg suit, activate Plasma Power in some of the worthy inmates, and rally the prison population to overwhelm the staff, before taking over the nearby planet Zeta, and established the Fourth Empire to take over the universe with. Yes, that name is intended to be that based.
Of course, this doesn't include some of the other things he had done to the rest of the cast, including:
Making his less than willing employees perform and participate in his experiments, and would at times hold physical screening test days to see if his employees had sufficient Plasma Power levels to experiment on themselves
Forcibly comply by torture or silence by death or extreme force those employees who would not continue his depraved experiments
Was said to have created a personality erasing brainwashing method for the justice systems of Earth, that was openly protested against by activist groups; Hayato, the main character, was said to have been given special preparation sessions outside of his court sessions when falsely accused of killing a cop as a child
His last victim, Micheal Lin Milliam, a Second Cultural Revolution refugee and employed scientist at Bilstein's labs, was put in a genetic splicing machine, turned into a dinosaur man, and was still considered an employee when Bilstein got out, and when his death hit his family, his wife killed herself in grief and left their daughter to grow up in London of all places
Took to murdering a boy's parents by his own hands because said boy had Plasma Power levels greater than average, and then brainwashed him to become a manchurian agent spree killer to kill anyone who had Plasma Power on Earth if Bilstein went to prison or worse
Took in a mentally retarded but skilled Plasma Magic user and allowed him to turn himself into a monster
Planned with a co-conspirator to send a high Plasma Power matador to prison and forced him to work for him by surgically implanting a bomb in him, and made him commit countless crimes against humanity
Manipulated a bird warrior alien man of his hatred for mankind to work for him
Enslaved an entire population of a colonized planet and designates all of them for selection for his incessant experiments
Plans on creating a New Human Race and seeks to establish that by blowing up the Earth
Where did I get this? Apparently there's a section on the old Capcom website from the 1990s that has an extensive in depth trove of information regarding Star Gladiator. I'd want this series to get more popular because Star Wars is out of the picture, but knowing SJWs, they wouldn't know true scum of the earth if they tried.
Dr. Edward Bilstein, everyone. He didn't get his degree in evil to be simply called Edward Bilstein.
Also, @StraightShooter2, it appears you don't call anything anime styled in video games anime by itself as a style. Do you come from that same age, like me, from the 1990s and 2000s, when anime was getting big out here, and formats like video games, comics, and animation had no boundary under its name? Or are you that turnt from such a phrase like the rest of the world, as the times moved on into today?
