Welcome to the Character Exploration Thread! Here, we cycle through a variety of topics - Mainly the fighters - That don't get enough attention. Rather than tirelessly reiterating the same old debates of likelihood on a loop, this thread is for chill vibe time where we discuss who the characters are, where they're from, and what they could do. Discuss the series with fellow fans, or learn, more about it, just generally any sort of informative, constructive discussion.

How to Play
More or less just talk about the characters. Every day, we cycle through and talk about someone else. Between every cycle, there's a brief period of grace time - About 2 hours or so - Where you can give some final thoughts on the character being discussed.

If there's someone you want to talk about, you can nominate them yourself. By default, you have 5 nominations, or "noms." By sharing gameplay ideas, whipping up big writeups, and asking questions about the topic at hand, you can get five more noms each, without any upper limit (For now). You can submit your noms during the next cycle, preferably during the grace period between cycles.

To avoid cluttered conversations and people stealing questions, you can only ask one question per post. After that, you must wait for three more nom-worthy posts from other people - Movesets, stage concepts, writeups, other people's questions - Before you can ask another question

Rules
  1. Characters must have a support thread to be nominated, with all the rules that entail. If you want an entire series nominated, then at least one character from that series must have a support thread.
  2. There will be no debates over likelihood; I know some people enjoy it or have opinions they want to share on the matter, but there's a time and place for everything and this isn't it. You're allowed to have healthy debates over how certain mechanics and elements could be implemented, though.
  3. Be respectful. You can have your opinions, but don't actively go %$#@ing on a character, and especially don't go in during their day looking for a fight.
  4. Please don't just dump submissions; That gets messy real quick. Nominations will happen as detailed above.
  5. Have fun, be open to trying new things, and don't be afraid to ask questions.

Hmm, nominating... Tekken's Kazuya Mishima. While Kazuya's kinda been in the conversation, he's been overshadowed by his father - but has some critical enough differences to him and his son to stand out on his own merits. As such, going with him fully.

I'm thinking we should just have people suggest a bunch of names and I'll make a schedule out of it. Then I'll make a poll, and the top seven are our first topics. After that we start nomming as detailed in the initial post.
In that case, I'll go with...

  • Euden (Dragalia Lost)
  • Monokuma (Danganronpa)
  • Tethu (Ever Oasis)
  • Henry Fleming (Code Name: S.T.E.A.M.)
  • Billy Hatcher (Billy Hatcher and the Giant Egg)

Just a bunch of characters I like and want an excuse to talk about.

  • Phoenix Wright
  • Chibi-Robo
  • Amaterasu
  • Maxwell (Scribblenauts)

Seems neat. I'd like to nominate:
  • Meat Boy
  • Boyfriend (Friday Night Funkin)
  • Slime (Dragon Quest)
  • Makoto Naegi
  • The Knight (Hollow Knight)
  • Cranky Kong
  • Tom Nook
Sorry if it's a mouthful, but this seems pretty hype.

I'm not the most involved with speculation right now, but I'll still try to post here sometimes! I also will probably treat write my posts in this thread as if the character(s) were 100% confirmed and actually announced, as that sounds funny to me.

Nominations:
- Farmer (Story of Seasons)
  • Ayumi Tachibana (Famicom Detective)
  • Demi-fiend (Shin Megami Tensei)
  • Professor Layton (Professor Layton)
  • Madeline (Celeste)

  • Makoto Naegi
Makoto, you say? I think I know a thread you may enjoy. I am shameless with my self-promotion.

Honestly? This bit sounds hilarious. We're already leaving chance ratings at the door, so why not go all in?

Huh, the only characters here I'd interpet as memes are Bubsy and Boyfriend, the prior was my submission which I can confirm was only semi ironic, and Boyfriend was probably suggested in earnest.
Honestly, I'm just interested to see what people say about Boyfriend.

**** it one more - Ori
I've listed off everyone up to this comment, and we have 82 fricking submissions now so I think I'm gonna stop. The only problem is that it's gonna be really difficult to rummage through everything so now I'm gonna order everyone alphabetically.

Eheheheheheh... I did not think this through...

Lol yeah, a lot of that is probably my fault. I just couldn’t help myself since there are so many characters I really like. Sorry about that.
