What instrument would your character play?

  • Welcome back, Iwaku! While we are still working on the site to get it back into shape, we've come back online so you can get back to doing what you love. Check out this announcement for more details.



Music is typically what can make or break a scene in a movie or roleplay. It is something that can move evil to tears, bring good to it's knees and drive the monster to tranquility. While it typically does not play a major role in many things the right kind can go miles.

With enough beating around the bush, What instrument would your characters play(Any kind from Modern to Classical)?

Arsenal XA4

The M-60 is quite the instrument o' death. The song is yin Victor Charlie is very well familiar whit.

Victor Charlie, Johnny Jihad, an' countless others know the song very, very well...

I don't think the Boatswain's Mate's whistle counts, does it...

Well shit...

I have no musical talent whatsoever.

If you time the detonations just right you can make out the Final Fantasy victory tune.

I would not be proper Stalker if I am not play guitar. I am can do a mean acoustic rendition of Stairway to Heaven.

I learn harmonica during six month at Disciplinary Barracks.

I played alto sax in high school. I never stuck with it, unfortunately...

My test subjects. All those pitches and tones of their final screams make quite a symphony of abject terror.

I used to be able to play the guitar solo from Iron Man. I mean both solos. Unfortunately rock wyverns don't have the whole finger coordination, so I can't do that any more.

I play the Pipe Organ on occasions. Honestly it would help if I had five fingers on both hands...

Drums. 'Nuff said...

The harp.

Anyone says anything and I cave your skull in with mine.

Most of my characters would play a grand piano in moonlight.

Genre You DON'T Like
See above.
Guitar mostly. though i can see some of them. Violin for the more classically attuned.

Boss Frost


Frostie himself would play the winter winds in a symphony of spine-chilling cold!

Bei's likely to play the sitar, and Roppu's a flutist...

Gilgear's all about a low-slung bass guitar.

Kang would play an electric piano. 'Cause he's odd like that.

Hydross is a guitarist, but... well, that's his main weapon, too.

Fro'siv and Nar'zuul are too busy for instruments. They listen well, though.

Finally, Ammit plays percussion on the corpses of fallen humans.


Ashley, probably a cello in an old, dusty room XD


Owlmageddon comes. Ò◇Ó

Let's see... I'll go with charries I play on Iwaku right now. XD

Wren from Beasts of Civilization was probably educated with the Piano and Violin. But I can see her playing a lute to be silly or beating on drums for the fun of it.

Miss Aubrielle from Drymera would play a harp, because it is beautiful an elegant. :D Something a lady would play.

Rosabel can't play an instrument, because she's a twit.

....I'd have to give some serious thought to some of my other characters. >>

My upbeat, hyper-ish characters are usually based off myself, so they'd be either the terrible flute player or drum basher. Most likely not very good with instruments aside from the piano. I usually go with singing when it comes to musical talent.

On the other hand, the slightly withdrawn females that I play would be the violin or quiet piano types. The ones that play those haunting melodies~


Angus is the singing type, I figure, either that or a lute or some shit, he's into fairies.

Julius is obviously into an Imperium version of Bolt Thrower and military songs.

And I forgot if I'm into any other roleplays right now, so yeah.

Oh yeah I think most of the characters for my modern roleplays are into The Who.
