- More human than human. Also more airplane than human. - Mallhalla purchase description
Vector is a transforming battle robot legend of Brawlhalla, featuring the Rocket Lance and Bow as his weapons. He can be unlocked for 7200 gold. This robot-man-jet hybrid brings the power of the cyberfuture and an entire fighter jet to the field, using his extremely advanced parts and transforming limbs to field bows, lances, high-power drills, swinging blades, laser cannons, and carpet bombs during the fight, which should prove more than a match for any Legend, and a glorious spectacle to all in the audience watching.
As the story goes...
- "Commander Vector, it's much worse than we thought. KABAL sent The Mechassassin back a thousand years to 1987. We believe its mission is to eliminate an ancient leader named 'Sen-tin-el' and rewrite human history." -Equinox Secundus
In the year 3006, cybermarine Arcturius Vector pursued his nemesis, the Mechassassin Blackstorm far into the distant past of New Earth. His mission did not go as planned.
First, when Vector arrived in 1987 he discovered his time had a very distorted image of what humans looked like in the ancient past. Humans were not steel-winged, they did not subsist on a primitive naptha-kerosene blend, and they did not have epic guitar chords playing in the background at all times. If he ever returned to his own time, he would correct Engram-Killivac's Encyclopedia of World History. But in the meantime, it was too late to change, and while his jet-hybrid form was not the disguise he'd hoped, it was comfortable, useful and incredibly cool.
Second, when he found Sentinel, he discovered not a defenseless civilian, but a Superhero locked in deadly combat with the evil KABAL, and an Earth assaulted by villains and threats of all sorts. Vector pitched in with enthusiasm. He led the counterattack against an alien invasion force, he defeated a squadron of super-intelligent jets, and he fought Blackstorm in a battle over Los Angeles so epic that the soundtrack could be heard as far away as New Mexico.
In Valhalla Vector fights, builds jet engines with Scarlet, teaches yoga, and communicates mostly in Top Gun quotes. But he has recently discovered that Scarlet may know more about time travel than she admits, and his circuits are beginning to whir.
"Copy that. Prepare your strike team to seize the Time Portal long enough to get me through. Once I'm in the past, you will destroy the Portal forever. Don't argue. Get me my starlance, my keytar, and some source material on what humans looked like back in 1987." -Vector
A massive and burly robot literally inspired by 80's robot media, Vector has a heavy-looking yet sleekly designed chassis that resembles that of Gundam Wing and, especially, Transformers.
Vector's chest is wider than that of most legends, made even wider by his large, fan-mounted shoulderpads, and has a bright orange crest atop his sternum. A narrow, practically cable-thin waist and hips descend into heavier set boots. The equally narrow arms terminate in heavy, gauntleted gloves. A large tube that is either transparent and full of orange liquid or inherently glowing orange connects a port on his rear shoulder to a different port on his back, underneath his head. His head resembles that of a man wearing a helmet - with grinning, partitioned facial features and orange glowing eyes set underneath a backswept helmet shape skull and tapered ear covers. A pair of foil-topped jet engines sit mounted on his back, like a jetpack, though with the exhaust ports pointed upwards.
The coloring theme of his paint-job is a dark periwinkle-blue, which contrasts with the bright oranges of the glass ornaments that dot his body, the tube going over one shoulder, and the fire within the exhaust of his back piece.
Vector is imposingly large, his model being the largest to date and leaving very little empty space in his hurtbox.
|Neutral||Vector transforms into a jet around his lance, nozzle pointed straight up, and hovering in the air while the attack charges. He then launches, travelling in a concave upwards arc (high initial angle which tapers out). Anything struck by the point of the lance during this is carried through the length of the arc before being launched horizontally. Charging this attack will maintain a large amount of any forward momentum. Moves Vector forward a moderate distance and ends in high mid-air.|
|Vector transforms into a jet aroudn his lance, boosting a good distance into the air ahead of him as he does so, to charge this attack, then flies down and very far forward, buzzing the ground at waist-height with the lance-point. Anything struck is carried through to the end, where a detonation of gathered charges launches those struck horizontally back. Charging this attack maintains a small amoutn of forward momentum. Moves Vector forward a very great distance.|
|↓||Crouching down to charge, Vector leaps back and into the air before transforming into a jet around his lance and carpet-bombs the air immediately in front of where he was standing with three shots from a belly-mounted cannon in rapid succession, starting from the closest to where he was standing and moving forward. Moves vector forward a moderate distance and ends mid-air.|
|Neutral||Vector converts his forward arm into a massive single-arm cannon ringed by a rapidly spinning wheel of batteries, with the two halves of the bow serving as the cannon's forward pylons. He discharges a laser beam from this cannon high into the air and slightly in front, arcing it up until it is completely vertical. Opponents struck by this beam are launched straight upwards.|
|Splitting the bow into two "blades", Vector dashes forward a moderate distance, leading with a single horizontal swipe with the rear blade quickly into a whirling horizontal flurry of whirling swipes. Targets struck by the leading swipe are also hit by the subsequent flurry, and launched horizontally back. Carries Vector a great distance forward.|
|↓||Splitting the bow into two "blades", Vector raises them over his head before spinning them rapidly to either side of him, striking any grounded opponents standing on, near or a short distance away from him, and launching them diagonally into the air away from him.|

- Vector's default weapons are the Fuselage (rocket lance) and the Flight Plan (sword).
- Vector's bot name is V3C-T0R.
- Vector's sternum-crest resembles the shape of a police badge, fitting with his role as crime-fighting bot under Sentinel's employ.
- It is clear, due to the references to steel wings, transforming figures and rock music solos that the people in Vector's far-distant cyber-future thought humans were 80s version of the Transformers, and in particular focused on the animated movie as their point-of-reference.
- Relatedly, Vector's use of the bow as one of his weapons is similar to that of Rodimus from Transformers Animated, and transforms into a jet fighter like many Decepticons.
- Vector's lore, in addition to referencing Transformers, also references [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Terminator_(franchise) The Terminator] franchise, specifically Terminator II.
- As of September 2019, Vector's time period is the farthest forward in Earth's linear timeline, coming from an era beyond even Barraza's, where humanity is no longer the dominant species on the planet.
