|The Brave Troll|
Stream is a character who appears in the game Divekick. Stream is based on the "Stream Monster", a term for people who post inflammatory and scathing comments in chat during Fighting Game event livestreams or cause problems while attending.
Biography[edit | edit source]
Stream lives his life trapped behind the keyboard, gazing into the warm glow of a monitor that pumps free content into his eyes 24/7. Instead of appreciation, he feeds only negativity back in. His conciousness is an endless flood of sexism, racism, and hate. Stream is only satisfied when he can make someone uncomfortable or upset, and so he sets out into the real world to finally troll in person.
Specials[edit | edit source]
Air: Flame Bait: Stream shoots a fireball that can't kill the opponent but instead sets the ground on fire. If Stream lands in this fire pit, he gains invincibility for a short time, meaning if an opponent touches him while he's on fire - even if they land a successful kick on him! - they lose the round.
Ground: Spooby PLS: When the move is activated, he's replaced by an image of a "buffering" Stream, a la Internet video. The player can still control Stream at this time, and the character doesn't reappear on screen until the Kick Meter is drained.
Appearance[edit | edit source]
Steam has two troll wings, along with a tail, but it's quite normal seeing as how he is an actual troll monster. His skin color is orange and he appears to be in a straitjacket.
Trivia[edit | edit source]
- Stream is based on Firebrand from Ghosts 'n' Goblins series, specifically Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3 version.
- Stream's kick mimics Dhalsim's Yoga Drill kick from Street Fighter.
- Stream's ground special move, Spooby PLS, is a term commonly used by Stream Monsters when some technical error has occurred during a livestream. Spooby is an intentional misspelling of Spooky (also spelled Sp00ky), a reference to Victor "Spooky" Fontanez, a livestreamer and fighting game commentator. The "Spooby pls" term is based on the phrase "Gooby pls," popularized by "Dolan" comics.
