Mutt also has a strong "street" vibe to it (because wild dogs are usually mutts).

"Mutt" would almost certainly be the derogatory slang name for the vigilante used by the opposition. It would be the functional equivalent of calling someone a "cape" or a "mask" or a "goody goody two shoes" instead of calling them a superhero. It would be a way of showing DISrespect.

Kind of like calling Back Alley Brawler the "dead end pugilist" or something similar. Classic examples in cinema would would low level street thugs calling Batman "the bat" while making faces and asserting that they're not afraid of the rumors (right before getting beaten up and threatened).

"Bulldog" is way meatier.

This character I believe doesn't need a "particularly impressive" sounding name. If I remember the little information we've been given about his background he is a rookie street hero that levels up with the player. If that is correct then he doesn't need an incredibly cool and unique name, at least not in his early career. If his hero work starts being felt by the entire city and his area of influence increases, then a cooler name could be used.

I am the terror that flaps in the night, I am the bug that delays a game's release.

Mine is Hat Girl from the game A Hat in Time: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/A_Hat_in_Time. What's yours?

If you haven't heard of it you should definitely check it out, it was also a Kickstarted Game!

I'm hoping to get some commissioned art to replace it eventually, but she's definitely my favorite character at the moment. I'm hoping there will be some characters in CoT that can provide extreme sass without ever saying a word. Perhaps it could be our very own street sweeping vigilante >-<

If the Cain Corso name is

If the Cain Corso name is used, he could then just go by Corso, ala Shaft or someone like that (I can dig it!). Just plain Boxer makes one think of someone who boxes/spars and not the dog, and Brown Boxer makes me think someone got surprised and couldn't help themselves. Of the Boxer ones, I think tying it to an area of the city (Bradford) sounds best so far.

I have been partial to something more like Mastiff because it seems much more macho a name and the dog connection is evident.

I think the Shadow Claw suggestion is a good name, but seems more cat-like a name than dog-like.

No love for Mauler, i.e. The Bradford Mauler? It connotes cannine and boxing while sounding tough and being a pretty strong hero name. And while it could be said to sound more villanous, hardcore street vigi's tend to have darker names to "scare" the criminals.

FIGHT EVIL! (or go cause trouble so the Heroes have something to do.)

Can his alias be something like Rhett Wyler then?

Let's see if I can add to this(sorry if already mentioned):

-Howlser
-Mister Mastiff
-Master Mastiff
-Malamutt

Just on a side note, in respect to copyright, would the owners still come after if you did something like Rott Wyler, Rhott Wiler, etc?

To my understanding, what

To my understanding, what allows DC to use the name Captain Marvel, is they are allowed to use that name IN the book, just can't title the book Captain Marvel.

This is the same reason we can call the characters superheroes within the game. We just can't call the game City of Superheroes.

So, I have to wonder, how is using the name Rottweiller a problem? The game isn't called Rottweiller. The character's are the same. I don't think they looked the same either. So, where's the copyright issue?

Well it's like this... even if we would win a case like that? We would still have to pay money to represent our case which could bankrupt us, and we don't really know if we could get a volunteer to be our lawyer or if we would have to pay for one ourselves.

We have a lawyer and they do not work for free. Even if they were, civil court is not. So let’s try to stay out of court.

Especially not since the studios and publishers employ some lawyers that are more like mean junkyard attack dogs, not wholesome and cuddly doggies like MWM would like to have flipping around in the game.

Remember that Cryptic had to settle a nasty court case over the mere possibility that a player could create a character that was similar to one of the copyrighted ones. The possibility, not the actuality. NC Soft and Cryptic technically 'won', but they still had to agree to some strenuous restrictions and had the case actually gone to court it would have cost them huge amounts of money even if Marvel knew ahead of time they would have lost on the key demands.

It's an obscure suggestion, but what about "Dominican"?

The Dominicans (the various orders of Catholic priests, brothers, and sisters) were known as "the Hounds of the Lord". Here's why

You can work it into his backstory that he heard it somewhere, for instance, a homily at a mass he attended, or at school (there are Dominican sisters who teach at schools here in Australia). It would certainly fit in with a vigilante (I'm thinking a bit of the Daredevil TV series here as well).

It should be available; a quick Google search turns up Latino superheroes, and I can't find anything in a quick search of lists. Hardly comprehensive, but certainly a start.

Not a Dev, but I assume that jump is probably part of the parkour travel power.

Wait... Can we customize our travel powers aesthetics? What sort of options would there be for things like parkour and wall crawling? Ah, crap, do I need to start a thread?

Primary interests of former

For simplicity: Why not Dogtag (tag is german word for "day". Every "dog" has his "day" hence "Dogtag")

How about Cynanthrope ( a Waredog, pronounced sigh-NAN-throp)
(A form of madness in which a person believes himself or herself to be a dog and behaves accordingly.)

If you must have a Rottweiler type name, that is not protected, there is always "Rotl", R-O-T-L: (a unit of weight in Islamic countries...and acceptable in Scrabble).
I'm still liking the "Hangdog" and "Dirty Dog" names myself.

I have no current plans on making a dog themed superhero, so all the names I suggested are fair game people!

The last dark vigilante I played was sort of a Batman Punisher mix called Magnum. Had a Robin-esque sidekick called Derringer. He was a nut with a gun who indoctrinated a young boy into his war on crime. I think his name was Magnum anyway.

With all these dog themed

With all these dog themed name suggestions, I wouldn't be surprised to see a bunch of dog themed characters running around Titan City on opening day in a super group called "Pound Puppies" or "Who let the dogs out?"

With all the silly and

With all the silly and serious names being tossed out...we might actually get a couple of good names for our stalwart, Rottweiler.
Looking at his costume, it doesn't have to be a dog. That suit is pretty generic with pointy ears, any pointy eared animal might suffice,

so what carnivore has pointy ears? (and isn't a dog, bat or wolverine)
wolves, foxes, large cats, scary elves (OK, not Legoluslucious...but you get the idea).

frankly, I like Lone Wolf...or just, Wolf. It fits the vigilante character type.

Of course Rottweiler IS a dev...for those of us who made silly names here, Rotty just may make a dev controll toon of himself and hunt us down. The last thing we will see before we end up in the hospital is the word balloon, "Hey Cyclops! You suggested PowerPoodle...oh Really?!!"
KABOOM! Back in the hospital!

there might even be a badge (of shame) for getting beat up by Rotty.
Come to think of it...I probably have a number of Devs with nefarious plans for me. I'm just a lil' angel, I don't know why...

You have a bunch of players who many are altaholics. We have been in withdrawing way too long it shows! Besides with the name system you guys are setting up we don't need to compete with names! There can be many "The Hound of the Baskervilles" as long as you don't block the name!

Oh, supergroup name "The Hounds of the Baskervilles!"

I just thought of two more

I just thought of two more names, going along with the "Boxer" theme. One serious and one less so.

The first name is "Beat Boxer". Because he beats people down with boxing skills, and if he grew up a poor kid on the streets it would make sense for him to be a hip hop fan.

(And if he dressed in red he could be "Beet Boxer". Maybe not.)

The less serious name is "Lute Boxer", if he dressed in Renaissance-style clothes.

Wow all these Dog themed hero

Wow all these Dog themed hero names has me Bone Tired. I still prefer the Bradford Boxer. That name fits with Titan City cause it shown he patrols in the Old Bradford area. Also, Boxer speaks about not only about his dog appearance but also his fighting skills. His name doesn't have to be over extravagant or fancy. Names like Shadow Claw or Battle Beagle are good names but a name also should fit the character of the hero. He is simply a urban vigilante that fights to keep the people of his city safe. I stand by Bradford Boxer cause it's a practical name.
However I will humor you with another suggestion: Great Dane-Ger

I am the terror that flaps in the night, I am the bug that delays a game's release.

I don't really think the dog

I don't really think the dog-based persona works that well for a character like this, honestly. If the devs decide to stick with that then Watchdog makes the most sense. Hound wouldn't be bad although that's been used in Transformers forever. Lone Wolf could work as well but we're really pushing the edge-o'-meter with that one. TBH I actually see this character as someone who rounds up the "stray dogs" that form criminal packs. Dogcatcher..? Leash?

I liked Watchdog the best out

I liked Watchdog the best out of the suggestions.

Fits the street level hero (I believe) he's supposed to be. Works well for the Rottweiler motif of an outfit. Also, like Cyclops said, it's a serious name, harder to come by, that works.

Giving him a silly name, just because the good serious ones are taken, is a terrible idea :/

Little disappointed it's not still Rottweiler though. That and Anthem are some good hero names.

Barrio Boxer?

I really like "Nighthound"

or

BEAUCERON (Its a breed) If you look at a picture of them they kinda look like the silhouette of the hero.

Beaucerons are big but graceful herders immediately recognized by their dark black coats with squirrel-red markings, including their trademark red stockings. They’re also seen in a black-gray-tan coat. Standing as high as 27.5 inches at the shoulder, Beaucerons are in all ways balanced, moderate dogs, immensely strong and seemingly indestructible but never clunky or plodding. The long head is well chiseled, and the dark brown eyes project an expression the breed’s fans describe as frank and confident.

Using the same name as

Using the same name as another established character should only be a problem if the rest of the character is extremely similar. That said - certain names lend themselves to certain concepts/looks. Just the name "Rottweiler" shouldn't be an issue, but using that name AND having a black/brown costume with canine features could be, if a quick google search is any indication.

We could have a NPC called "Gladiator" for instance, and as long as it isn't an alien mohawked Superman-alike, or a blue and gold guy with buzzsaws on his forearms, we will be fine. Or we could have an NPC named "Impulse", as long as he/she isn't a red and white speedster.
