An octobrain in Duke Nukem

Generic octobrain


Power Level:
Game system: DC Heroes Role-Playing Game

Context

Duke Nukem 3D was a deliberately trashy, lowbrow action/shooter video game released in 1996. It was big back then, since the gameplay was good, the levels intriguing, there weren’t too many good FPS  games, and the stupidity wasn’t as grating as it would soon become.

These octoblokes are part of the opposition. Like, opponents.


Powers and Abilities

Floating brains with three eyes, mental blasts, claws and teeth and tentacles, oh my.


History

Octobrains are part of the invasion force, although their role in it is unclear.


Description
