Mighty No. 9 Backers Will Get To Vote For The Game’s Second Protagonist

By Ishaan . September 18, 2013 . 9:05am

Mighty No. 9 will have two main characters—Beck, the main playable character in the game, and Call, his female counterpart. Unlike Beck, Call’s design will be decided upon by the game’s backers on Kickstarter. Developer Comcept write:


Our artists are already hard at work on their designs for our community-favorite heroine! The plan is to have several for all of you to choose from, right near the end of our Kickstarter campaign, as part of our update for Friday, September 27th. (This way we can also maximize the amount of backers we can include in the vote!)


Then we’ll announce the results as part of our livestream in the final hours of our Kickstarter, on the afternoon of Tuesday, October 1st! The top three designs will all go on to the next round, where they will be colored and tweaked for another vote to take place on our (then newly-opened) community forums at the end of October / early November.


Above are some of the initial designs for Call, although Comcept will be posting all of the poll designs without any colouring in them, so the community can focus solely on the character’s design while voting.

  • DanteJones

    I can’t decide between the two designs on the left, they’re both so good. :(

    • Derek E Nay

      I am going to say on the far left will be chosen because it looks like Roll. Though I would like green hair woman.

  • Chris Yuen

    Not-Roll! Not-Aero looks really nice too, but that ponytail!

  • Go2hell66

    i’m feeling the blondy on the left

  • Final Agent

    Foxtail Roll Call has so got this in the bag…

    I’m gonna vote for red eyes black hair anyhow though.

  • oh im hoping the ponytail wins

    • John Diamond

      the one that looks most like roll isn’t too bad

      • d19xx

        That’s the one fans should vote, to troll Capcpom.

    • Tincho D

      I know which one i’m voting.

      • TheGioG

        All of my yes! All of my life savings to that Kickstarter, all of my votes, all of my time, and all of my yes to Pink-Hair McTwin Tails (so adorable)!

      • Draparde

        I Agree that one is my favorite personally.

      • Yup I love this design the most as well, though the blond ponytail one is not so bad either

    • Ric Vazquez

      Same here

  • Pockystix

    Why can’t we have all of them!? lol

    • All of them as Alt. Costumes! Of course, the voting would then change to “Which design would you like to be the default one?”

  • Soma Schicksal

    It’s gotta be blond fox tail for me

  • Holylifestar

    It’ll either be the top left, or middle left. (Hopefully >,<)

  • Rudy Soto

    I’m rooting for pink Call.

    • Laer_HeiSeiRyuu

      Green Call!

  • ShawnOtakuSomething

    Roll, look at your sister Backers

    Roll been working as capcom office maid…..she seen better days

  • FitzpatrickPhillips

    The great waifu war Part 2 is about to begin

    • ShawnOtakuSomething

      What happen in part 1?

      • MasterScrub

        IIRC, the first great Waifu War was voting for the 2 fan-decided DLC characters for Skullgirls

        • Armane

          No, the first great Waifu War was voting for the MML3 girl.

        • Rudy Soto

          Who wouldn’t want Beowulf as their waifu?

      • FitzpatrickPhillips

        You don’t remember the Great Waifu War Part 1? It was for the Legends 3 girls. Many soldiers died those weeks.

      • Spider-Man

        I webbed everyone up, causing a cease fire.

  • For me, it’s the Aero design, no question. Roll has had a place in many many successful MM games, but poor Aero never got a chance to shine :( It’d be nice to see a design based off of her make its way to an actual game!


    I hope that the Blonde without ponytail win

    • Learii

      she look like Roll from mega man


        she reminds me more of Alia

  • CirnoLakes

    I’m pulling for Roll Call, myself.
    Because MEGA MAN.

    • Kristoffer Brandberg

      Speaking of that pun… >w>

  • linkenski

    The blond on the motercycle is the best one. She looks iconic and charming.

  • Ponytail for teh win =^_^=

    • Arcana Wiz

      i didn’t like the short ponytail version, but loved the long one… makes me wonder if they will let we chose some things in the design, if so i might vote for her.

      • It would be cool if we could choose some things in their design, but idk, the ponytail version just seems to be really appealing in this case =)

      • Heropon

        Yes ,the long one look more natural than short version .

      • Kai2591

        I like the short ponytail version, but I LOVE the long one a lot more!

        As AzureNova said, PONYTAIL FOR TEH WIN!

  • Arcana Wiz

    if they are posting it without colors and say that we will help at the design too (it’s written on the kickstarter page) maybe we will be able to decide things like eye color, hair color, etc…? even so i’ll root for pink aero call. She looks cool, even more in the “older versions” part.

  • TheGioG

    It’s come down to either Roll or Aero’s spiritual successors for me. So adorable… oh bullocks to tough decisions like these! I’ll just back the project under two accounts and vote for the both of them!

  • Kristoffer Brandberg

    It’s all good as long as they don’t pick another Roll-clone.

  • Sardorim

    Hoping the pink haired one with the backpack accessory wins.

  • Raoni Marques

    Roll-like chick, plz

  • d19xx

    “Beck, the main playable character in the game, and Call, his female counterpart.”

    So they’re Beckman and Callgirl….

    • Laer_HeiSeiRyuu

      I hope the green one goes

  • TrueDefault

    How the hell am I supposed to vote for one of them? They’re all cute!

  • Raltrios

    Ponytails turn me on.

  • fairysun

    I vote for the green one. Have not seen an android girl in green color before.

  • Chaos_Knight

    Gah…..I’m stuck between Roll Call and Tsundere Call (Pink).

    • TheExile285

      Theres a tsundere Call? ****! now i no who i voting for!

      • J_Joestar

        looks more Kuudere than Tsundere.

  • Prinnydoom

    Beck and call. HA thats good. ^___^

  • Shady Shariest

    Greenie… I choose you!

  • Tincho D

    Yellow Tails or Pink Klonoa: LET’S ROCK!

    Pink a qt 3.14

    • zaidandzhadow

      I think you ruined Roll Call for everyone

  • MiyuEinzbern

    Pink twintails and purplish haired girls look good. maybe they could make a system where the design changes completely into another characeter design temporarily? like super saiyan concept or fire mario. haha.

  • leingod

    My favorite is the blonde ponytailed one. Even if she looks just like Roll :P

    The pink one looks aloof… or tsundere-ish. Don’t like those.

    • J_Joestar

      Roll Call is the Best Call.

  • Demeanor

    I like the dark violet hair one on the lower right, but please get rid of the pink+red+orange color scheme, she’s almost as bad as Tsuzura Saki in matching colors XD fewer colors, more harmony.

  • I want either the blonde ponytail design for the strong Roll reference or the pink twintail gal for the minimal Geo Stelar reference :3

  • Dianatos

    As the second protagonist, I wonder if Call with have a laser sword and get all of the cool scenes.

  • Chow

    I like that Rolliest-looking one. XD

  • SilentMC

    I’d love for the one with Aero’s colours to be chosen

  • JNT

    I will vote for not-Roll

    • zaidandzhadow

      Not-Roll is anyone but the one who looks like Roll or The Roll that’s not the original Roll, please aswer i don’t know if up or downvote you,

      • JNT

        Not-Roll is that one who looks a looooooot like Roll but totally isn’t Roll… you feel me now *wink*

        • zaidandzhadow

          then it’s up

  • Testsubject909

    Pretty smart going for monochrome so that color isn’t an issue.

    • zaidandzhadow

      So when the design of choice is elected, Inafune colors her red and blonde.

  • please give me the link for the full image of the header…

  • Kelohmello

    Oh come on, everyone knows the one that’s gonna win is the one that looks the most like Roll. This doesn’t even need to be asked.

  • Hinataharem

    Might as well vote for Bizzaroll

  • I’ll go to what the majority of Beckers vote for. I think everybody’s still a winner whatever the final Call design would end up be. :)

    Speaking Call, I do hope she also ends up having her very own theme song. Megaman’s Roll did have “Kaze Yo Tsutaete”

  • ShootThatWay

    If only this game had a hair salon + clothes store so I could switch between any design. D:

    I guess that would leave eye colors… Maybe she actually needs glasses but chooses to contacts and you can choose what color the contacts are. Then that would solve everything. >;3

    But if ponytail or twintail wins, I’d be fine with that. :D

    • Bigabu Beaze

      This isnt Pokemon X and Y.

  • Valtiel Ikari

    I demand the Roll look-a-like.

  • XiaomuArisu

    I prefer the pink haired one

  • Yan Zhao

    Personally prefer the blonde ponytail design, since it reminds me of Roll and Ciel. It just dont seen right if the design isnt red and yellow.

  • Wagnaria

    I know it should only be Beck and his sister Call…
    But I really like both designs on the left. Having two sisters for Beck wouldn’t be that bad right? It’s not too late! xD

  • Alexandra Cordes

    But… but they’re all so cute…

  • s07195

    Twintail design wins for me, tops down.
    …And no, please don’t color the design in red and yellow anyway.. >.<

  • Joseph

    why not both blonde and pink?

  • Philip Elthorpe

    I seriously suspect that Keiji Inafune was not accidental in releasing a initial design that looks like Roll, especially with Beck being so close to Rock.
