Fan Characters will be competing for $1,000,000.
Daisuke, Dustin, Freddy, Gekkota, welcome to the Fray
Daisuke: I'm excited for him. He seems likable and very fun ^^
Dustin: Hmmm...I'm ok with him for now, but I might get annoyed by him sooner rather than later.
Freddy: Not sure how to feel about him exactly, but he could be nice.
Gekkota: Dang. Someone beat me to the punch with the Mortal Kombat kharacter DX Either way, she could be an interesting character.
Still pretty hyped =)
@ChronoAlone: Lets keep the Hype train rolling then!
@SWSU-Master: Toot toot!
Daisuke: Yeah... He is going to be an Late Pre-Merge/Early Juror for sure. He is too much of a physical threat and not smart enough to work around that.
Dustin: He seems like a fun guy to watch. I suspect that he will be one of my favourites.
Freddy: Frank has a point. Because of this Normals vs Superpowers twist, the normal tribe would have to focus on strength if unless he gets in good with a couple of people, he's done for.
Gekkota: Okay, first off, I genuinely yelped when I first saw her. Second off, I could tell that she is just as intimidating strategy-wise. There is no place where anyone could talk for strategy because she could be anywhere and nobody would notice her...
@Tinyhammer: Was it a good yelp or bad yelp?
@SWSU-Master: Well, it depends. I find her design absolutely scary. I don't know if you consider that a good thing or a bad one.
Daisuke: Alol at first I thought he was holding up a hot dog but that's just the orange super-power bar thing. He's gonna be fun if he's willing to play super hard but has no idea how to do it.
Freddy: Hey, it's cRaZyKiD's Johnson (inb4 that's what she said)! He could either be a great CPP character or absolutely atrocious.
Gekkota: This girl's got style so listen up dudes, she can shrink in size to suit her mood. That's an interesting idea, wonder how much dirt she's going to be able to dig up.
OH GOD I JUST REALIZED THIS IS GOING TO BE LIKE HIDDEN RENNY AGAIN LMAO
@Vilecheese: Eli's thinking, "Yay! Easter egg hunt!"
@Vilecheese: I was so tempted to make the DK Rap in this page but I decided against it. Thanks for doing it in the comments XD
Daisuke: I'm thinking he's gonna go early. He's gonna be voted off at the first opportunity. He's likely too strong and too dumb to really go anywhere.
Dustin: This is gonna be a fan favorite. He might be voted off for being a jury threat though. Late merge boot I think.
Freddy: Agreeing with others here. He's probably too weak to last on a tribe that needs strength to stand a chance. Early premerge boot.
Gekkota: She'l probably be a big villian early on, but as soon as people figure out her power they'l vote her off for being a threat. Late pre merge.
@Blastoise_FTW: So really only Dustin strikes you as one in for the long haul
@SWSU-Master: Yeah pretty much. I meant to say early MERGE for Daisuke though.
Gekkota for the win!
@Meowz: Go Gekky!
More 100% wrong picks!!!
Daisuke-- Obviously the 1st boot, might as well have not bothered casting him.
Dustin-- Revealed to be OTTN mastermind at final tribal (think male Bonnie).
Freddy-- Wins individual immunity 3 times. 7th member of jury.
Gekkota-- Gets evacuated due to being accidentally stepped-on by Jeff Probst.
@qazox: I would love to see OTTN Dustin
SO AS I PRAY, UNLIMITED HYPE WORKS
Daisuke: Basically what Frank says. His story and personality is going to mirror Joe from the real show, mark my words. Maybe, depending on his post-merge competition, he'll win a few more immunities than the Golden Boy, but that's it. He's gone the moment he loses an IC. Also, doesn't his name mean 'I love you' or something in Japanese? I wonder if that name's going to be meaningful in any way.
Dustin: I dunno. He's probably the nice guy of the season. I don't see him being very different to Mac from last season, personally. Maybe he'll be UTRfun but that's it. Early jury-ish.
Freddy: Ignoring any potential personal bias to his source, he might be enjoyable. He reminds me of Spencer - I could see him being pretty endearing and/or relatable should he get a (relative to his anyone his character may be inspired by... >_>) minor edit. He could very easily end up in
Gekkota: I gotta say, she seems interesting. I could see her being one of the main strategic forces who plays both sides. It's hard to say her exact role (maybe she leaves early for being a threat) but I like her chances. I wanna say she gets to the endgame, but it could go a variety of ways.
Good to see you keeping with the lifelong tradition of 'random syllable' tribe names :P
Also, Frank's right, it must suck being labeled 'Normal' but knowing Jeff he'll rub it in their face every chance he gets. I would've called the theme 'Talent vs. Training' or 'Practice vs. Powers' or something, but I digress.
@coolkyledude: you're thinking of the word "daisuki". either way, daisuke does seems like a guy who would love his friends :)
@coolkyledude: By now the Random syllable Tribe names are a Tradition
Nice to finally get a good look at some of the Super tribe. I'm really hoping that the entire tribe is insane and over the top.
Confident Daisuke is making the merge. His tryhard attitude is pretty unique, and he should be a great competitor.
Dustin is ok, but I can't dissociate him from Mac last season. Hopefully he does something new, he's really the only guy who doesn't impress me.
Freddy will go far, everybody loves a good underdog. A nerd doing well when the seasons twist focuses on the overpowered is a winning story.
Glad someones representing Mortal Kombat. I don't see her doing too well though.
@Thorne: I think that from what you said. Both Tribes offer their own special brands of craziness
I was hoping it would be all guys here so that I could point out a possible connection... Unless I'm remembering him wrong. In that case, pretend this comment never existed.
@DryIceBros: Can do O__O
@SWSU-Master: Did you understand any of that comment? Because you'd deserve credit if you did. :P
@DryIceBros: I'm looking back at this comment and all I can think is, "Was this written in some obscure code?"
...Okay, it wasn't those exact words, but they get the point across.
Ah, even more fascinating characters to dissect.
Daisuke: If his teammates have even an ounce of sense, they'll take him out before merge, because he'll go on the immunity streak to end all streaks. His lack of social game might help in this regard.
Dustin: Interesting. Another naive, likable character who'll kill in the social game. Overall, I can see him being a major threat if he can get some knowledge and overcome his goody-good tendencies. That or he'll annoy everyone by being excessively chipper.
Freddy: He's going down, hard and quickly. The genre savvy ones rarely survive for long in this series, given that their foreknowledge gives them a massive advantage. The alliance in power'll squeeze all the pertinent information out of him and then drop him like a hot rock.
Gekkota: Hard to say. I can't see her having a strong social game, given her appearance. Plus her power basically invalidates any possible secret planning, so if it's revealed, even her own side'll be after her.
@Sonofhades: It would be in Gekkota's best interest to hide her powers. Will be interesting to see if she can
Daisuke: Likeable power character but I hope he's able to think outside his "3StepsToWin" plan from the preview. Otherwise he'll leave pre-merge as the obvious individual immunity threat
Dustin: Somehow I doubt he will have a lot of time to "learn". He seems somewhat expendable to me and won't last too long
Freddy: A more timid version of Robbie? I agree with Frank's "nice underdog" theory but he'll probably become a good jury member
Gekkota: Very, very dangerous survivor unless she's stopped early by someone like Brandi. If she doesn't leave early, she will stay for a very long time
@SkySurfer: So of them it seems like you think Gekkota has the best odds of lasting.
daisuke: contender for most physically powerful contestant? he sounds kinda ottp. still rooting for his shirt to get ripped off OR spend a concerning amount of time yelling while powering up. i don't know, dbz tropes are still hilarious to me.
dustin: i found him funny in the preview. it sounded like he didn't really know what survivor was, so i'm interested in seeing how that plays out.
freddy: the survivor superfan archetype again... i don't know, he could be interesting i guess? he'll be a different flavor of superfan from yukie, at least.
gekkota: she's very physical, and can go tiny. does she keep her strength while small? she could steal idols like that! neither jeff or frank talked about her personality, so i don't really know what to expect, other than being jewel-like. i liked jewel! she probably has the highest chance of killing someone in this game. fatality.
@Congo: Well killing people is usually grounds for expulsion. So hopeffully Gekkota doesnt do that
@SWSU-Master: ah, that's what i thought. which sfc characters have a bodycount outside the game? i count melanie, sephiroth, bowser...? he's killed enemies in the paper mario games. maybe they're just "defeated", as nintendo usually says.
by the way, i very much appreciate that you reply to nearly all your comments. looking forward to the rest of the cast release, and sfc!
@Congo: There was that one Witch (from L4D2). Depending on the difficulty, she'd definitely have some body count.
Daisuke: Looks to me like the usual happy go lucky guy wanting to win challenges and be optimistic. I don't see him winning, but he might be a merge boot.
Dustin: The LOL character. Probably going to be Alec and Drew's clone.
Freddy: Well, I don't think he'll be a crazy superfan. Maybe SWSU will use him to make fun of Cochran for silly reasons.
Gekkota: Now this is a very interesting type of power. Growing small and gaining information. I never really thought about that. As for the character herself... I have no idea. She seems like a villain.
@TJBambi93: Late Premerge and Early Jury seems to be a very common prediction for Daisuke
Whoops, I dosed off and missed this update :S Welp, here's my thoughts anyway.
Daisuke- Well, I think I found my favorite character of the season. I wish him the best of luck. He's gonna need it....
Dustin- Hm....interesting. I'll probably like him better than my initial vibes were telling me, but we'll have to see.
Freddy- Honestly, I kinda feel like focusing on strength for the Normal team would get them nowhere. I mean, the raw strength of 15 is higher than 10, but when going up against 100, you're going to lose all the same. Unless most of the Super team doesn't have strength based stuff, brains seem to be the way to go imo.
Gekkota- Also interesting... I feel like I hope she doesn't get past the merge, but I'm not really sure on her right now. Interesting power, but feels like cheating.
Now on to tomorrow's comic~
