Back Story[edit | edit source]

Skroggle infestations have been reported on over a dozen planets. The highly adaptable Skroggle physiology allows them to thrive in almost any atmosphere. Skroggles are omnivorous and their bizarre metabolism enables them to vomit plant-like creatures that excrete volatile acidic spores.

Gnaw was taken from his home-planet as a Skroggle specimen by Kremzonian scientists. But Gnaw was not a beast that could be caged: his acid-breath melted his holding pen and Gnaw started to rampage through the science facility where he was held. No-one knows exactly what happened, but the facility was found 12 days later, abandoned, and overgrown with some weird, toxic flora.

Gnaw was eventually noticed by a passing band of Amphibian cosmic bikerpirates. Gnaw was in need of some friends, and he was taken in by them, nurtured and trained to fight in black-market exotic-alien arena fights. Occasionally his masters sell Gnaw's "services" to any war general that is desperate enough to set loose the rabid, chitinous menace upon the battlefield.

(This text is a binary message; when translated via an ASCII decoder, it reads: "It is the future, the distant future! The year 4000! Unless it's a more coloquial situation with a few robofriends, Gnaw no longer says poop. Instead, he says defecate.")

This skin is a silver-colored robotic version of Gnaw. He also has team-colored details. He has an RC-antenna on his head and on the tip of his tail. His collar has a "power" symbol. He only has a single eye on this skin.

His Weedlings are also turned robotic, with one eye and an antenna. Acid Spit is changed to a heap of metal, with new sounds.

Being premium, the skin also comes with unique voice lines. It also costs $5.00 instead of the usual $2.50 for skins.

Gnariachi[edit | edit source]

Characterrender maw skin gnariachi.png

"A famous man once said that music has charms to soothe a savage beast. The savage beast in question was not a Skroggle though, as when the man tried to use music to calm one he found himself, his music, and his notebook eaten.

However, legend speaks of a Skroggle that once ate an entire mariachi band. Though fulfilled, he never felt the same afterwards. He left his world-eating ways, wandered into the desert, and was never heard from again. One day a stranger walked into the town that had not heard a single song since the fateful day their mariachi band was eaten by a Skroggle. The stranger sat down, placed the weedlings he held in his robes beside him, and together they proceeded to play.

Mariachi never dies. Gnariachi was born.

This DLC contains a custom skin for Gnaw in Awesomenauts. The Gnariachi skin comes with a unique character theme, killing spree theme, a unique voiceover, and special in-game audio effects for weedlings.

If you have not already unlocked the character, purchasing this DLC will do so." - Official Steam Store description.

This skin gives Gnaw a mariachi costume, moustache, and sombrero. He holds a maraca with his tail which shakes and makes noise while he stands still.

Acid Spit is recoloured to look like salsa, and it has nachos and a taco shell sitting in it. His Weedlings have moustaches and wear sombreros and neckties. Each Weedling is holding either a bass, a guitar, a violin, or a trumpet (chosen at random, but only one of each will spawn), and they will play their respective instrument's part of Gnariachi's theme.

Being an ultimate skin, Gnariachi comes with unique voice lines as well as unique music for his theme song and killing spree theme.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The "G" in "Gnaw" is not silent: He pronounces it whenever he refers to himself.
  • Gnaw was the first 'naut to be exclusive to a specific version of the game (the PC version in this case). That changed when Awesomenauts was released for the PS4 under the name "Awesomenauts: Assemble!"
  • Gnaw was the first 'naut to be fully animated by Kewn of Ronimo Games, who also redid some animations for all previous Awesomenauts for the PC version as well as every Awesomenaut up to Genji.
  • Gnaw's design closely resembles and is likely a parody of a Zergling from Starcraft, and his mechanics seem to reference the Zerg such as placing living towers and planting goop.
    • He could also be inspired by Venomancer, a character from DotA with a similar skillset (who also happens to be originally based a Zerg, specifically a Hydralisk).
  • Gnariachi is the first skin to come with it's own unique theme song and killing spree music.
  • The Gnabot skin was chosen by the community via a FaceBook voting. It received the most votes, beating the other options (Gnowm and Gnagon). They can be seen below:
