The Power of Ruel compels you!

Posted by Ankama (Creator)

It's been a bit intense in the last few character updates with all these spoilers and villains, so let's take a moment to focus on someone who has known Yugo from the start. He's Alibert's former treasure-hunting partner and he's got a permanent tab open at the inn where Yugo grew up.

We could only mean Ruel Stroud, of course! 

Ruel might not seem like much of a threat. He's an older gentleman, after all, and like many older folks, he's somewhat set in his ways. And those ways can be rather strange...

 ...Some stranger than others.

But you don't make a living as a treasure-hunter for decades without picking up a few tricks, and Ruel has the honed instincts of a Enutrof who has survived plenty of danger. In fact, every time danger comes calling, you'll find Ruel has prudently packed up and headed out for greener pastures!

 Well... nearly every time.

However, there's one thing that Ruel won't hesitate to fight for (besides the life of his friends). And that's kamas!

Attack his kamas and you'll quickly realize that you've bitten off more than you can chew.

And today, we have a very special treat for you; Ruel is going to show off some of his moves... for free! Watch closely, because that doesn't happen every day!

      @Jared MacPhee: Yes, the key poses are drawn using traditional animation roughs, then built in Flash. =)

      I'm curious. Are the blue drawings animation roughs? Are key poses drawn on paper first, and then made in flash? Or is it just conceptual stuff here.
      Thanks for sharing, the Animation is sooo good.

      @Xiang Now I'm imagining if the Spongebob cast did the dub. Ruel voiced by Mr. Krabs, Yugo voiced by Spongebob, Tristepin voiced by Patrick, Amalia voiced by Sandy, and Eva voiced by Squidward.

      Nice update. It's awesome to see Ruel in action.

      Kinds wish you someday do the same, with Nox.
