Reaper Yahg by AndrewRyanArt Reaper Yahg by AndrewRyanArt
Still the Vorcha to go then I think I'm finally done!

I thought it was weird that the Reapers bypassed the Yahg in the game since the other races had already considered them for uplifting so they must have been further along than the evolutionary process than humans were the last time the reapers came around. Seems like bypassing the yahg would have given them ample time to become a viable threat during the next cycle, maybe moreso than the protheans even, given the extreme intellect and strength displayed by the shadow broker. My reaper Yahg has his arms converted into thannix cannons, he'd probably be introduced as a means to combat the Krogan forces on Palaven.

Fighting the Shadow Broker was hard enough. But a Reaper Yahg? How about a big tall glass of nope. Insanity would be appropriately titled if this was an enemy.

Thank goodness the designers never came up with this kind of thing, it would have been a pain in the ass to fight them!

Just kidding, I think all your reaper designs are amazing!

Actually, the reapers do not wish to kill all sentients they wish to wait until the "apex" of a species' grandeur before the harvest.

which is what I've been pointing out on other pieces, only a couple months after your comment.

Cool concept yet the reapers wouldn't touch the Yahg as they aren't a spacefaring race. Or are at least unable to archive interstellar travel.

And another thing: with the extreme power requirements of those cannons, I seriously doubt he's have much of a barrier. The Reapers are powerful, but not infinitely so. Now, if you teamed him with a Reaper Volus for shield support...yikes!!

You're 100% right Andrew. The Reapers bypassed them only because the Yahg don't yet have space flight. There's ZERO reason to rush off to fight an enemy who will still be sitting there when you're done with everybody else. If they attack the Yahg, there's a chance space-faring species counterattack them at Parnack. Conversely, if they're attacking, say, the Asari homeworld, there's ZERO chance the Yahg will be countering them.

Reapers would save them for last, then if they were deemed REALLY tough like the Krogan or worse, and had the same kind of population as the Krogan, the Reapers would most likely poison their atmosphere or some other form of environmental method of killing them.

The Golem is a large Reaper unit created from a Yahg. Due to their naturally aggressive demeanor and great size and strength,Yahg that have been converted into Golems pose a significant threat to allied forces. These units are equipped with arm-mounted cannons similar in principle to the main weapon of Reaper Destroyers and Capital Ships,but on a smaller scale,and are designed to flush hardened enemies such as Krogan out of cover and decimate kinetic barriers and armor. As well,due to their impressive stature,Golems have a tendency to advance on their enemies whilst hosing them down with their cannons,closing in to brutally beat down their opponents in close quarters.
