Fan Characters will be competing for $1,000,000.
It's time to bring in Juli, Ky, Lea and Leah!
Juli: Hmm... Can't say much. She look like the type that may seem non-threatening but her paranoia may either lead to becoming an early boot or a surprise power player.
Ky: ...I am not getting anything except that he will definitely surprise me somehow.
Lea & Leah: Okay, I am with the Critic here. What is the point of having twins on the show when two of them had made it all of the way to the Final 2? My prediction. One of them is the first boot where the other twin would go all "I would avenge you, sis!" I think one who would be wanting revenge is Leah.
@Tinyhammer: So a Twinnie SJDS Game for the Girls pretty much?
SC was pretty amusing here X)
Juli: I am defiantly excited to see her play. It'll be fun to see her try to keep afloat, no pun intended,
Ky: Jeez, how many freaking Sonic fan characters does this series need? Not looking forward to him really.
Lea and Leah: Ok, that's another series that I've been beaten to :( But this is really odd. They look similar, very similar, so perhaps Leah's special power she mentioned in the preview is really the ability to clone herself. That's what I'm betting on.
Only one set of characters left I assume. I don't want to have to wait till Monday night though DX I'm too excited.
@ChronoAlone: Two sets actually
@SWSU-Master: Just now recalled that there'll be 20 contestants XP
I'm a derp.
juli: i guess she's going to just swim through a lot of water challenges. that seems to be it for her superpower advantage. she sounds like a hyperactive weird strategy character, so she could be okay :)
ky: let me guess... his metal arm has all sorts of gadgets on it, including a hammerspace-like void from where he can pull out whatever he wants from it. he gives me donovan vibes for some reason, going off of that description from jeff. donovan was funny a couple times, so maybe ky will be funny too. probably not a winner. eye color prediction: green.
lea: she's a psychic pokemon trainer, going by her mysterious sunglasses. that's all i've got.
leah: um, you got me. no idea what lea and leah are supposed to be. i'm missing the joke here, i think.
so, challenges will be free-for-alls, but they will somehow provide disadvantages to the superpower people? still not sure how it works. i guess it'll become clear after the first challenge.
@Congo: Pretty much the challenges are balanced. Superpowers can be used, but they arent always gamebreakers
Prediction: They're not actually twins but it'll still get them into trouble.
@Djoing: And nobody would believe them if they said they werent related
*Insert witty comment here*
Juli: Yeaaah turning into a squid doesn't sound very useful to me. Early boot.
Ky: No idea honestly. Could go either way I guess.
Lea and Leah: I don't know what, but you're planning something here.. Both are end gamers with some kind of arc attached to them.
This comment seems lazier than my other ones.. Maybe the characters don't seem as interesting to me in this one.
@Blastoise_FTW: For some of these characters. I think their actions speak louder than predictions
I absolutely love that reference at the beginning. Even though I only really visited that site for History of Power Rangers before it moved. On to the actual analysis!
Juli: She's a kid, she's a squid! She's a rather easy target if the superheroes don't succeed in the challenges. Lack of physical ability after all, though her marksmanship should be up to snuff.
Ky: I don't really know what to think about him. Don't know if he's going to be an evil genius or the comic relief of this season.
Lea: She's sending up all the red flags for a potential hidden villain character. As the Critic says, she's bland and inoffensive. Her powers remain unknown, and not even Jeff knows how she's going to play.
Leah: This again. They're probably not actually twins, but I can see Leah going first to give her "twin" a revenge arc. I'm still not crazy about the idea, considering how this went last game.
@Sonofhades: Ku could be the Evil Genius AND Comic relief if he's skilled enough
Juli: Based on TJ's fanfic she seems to be pretty spunky and willing to make moves even when it's a little rash. She's definitely one to watch, either making it far or a possible winner.
Ky: I can't get a read on him at all.
Lea: Either her and Leah are a pure coincidence or Lea's like Sabrina and like how she made a doll of her child self, Lea made Leah in a different franchise...? I'm still predicting her power is the telekinesis though and she uses psychic-type pokemon.
OH WAIT SHIT SHE'S A DITTO. DUH. Maybe? I dunno.
Leah: Not gonna lie, I was hoping from the preview her power would be something completely lame like creating bubbles or something and the whole time she'd be bragging about how amazing that is and be a lulzy early boot. As she is, she seems more important than Lea but I still kinda see her as having her story end quicker?
@Vilecheese: We have Aquaman like powers coming :)
All four of them seem kinda interesting, although having twins in back-to-back seasons really doesn't feel right. Oh well. Maybe it'll be better this time, like they're both insane and they both cause a lot of crazy shit pre-merge and they both LEAVE pre-merge. In that case, it's fine.
@Tailslover13: Uh, are you the actual Tailslover? I thought you hated swearing.
@ChronoAlone: I do. But, I'm fine with saying words that my own mother uses and doesn't seem to think are so bad. I still refuse to say certain ones, but...some of them I've just stopped caring about, to be honest.
@Tailslover13: Well Insanity is always good :D
This cast has amazing potential so far, here's to hoping the longer production time means high quality.
Juli and Ky already impress me, they should have interesting roles within their tribe.
Lea and Leah hopefully don't drag on too long, at least one should be booted pre-merge.
Supertribe has the potential to be an SFC all time great tribe.
@Thorne: Both Tribes have Amazing Train wreck potential
Had to comment on the last comic a moment ago cause....I'm forgetful. ANYWAYS, moving forward!
Juli- My gut reaction says early boot? Yet my head says she'll last longer than that. Either way, I don't expect too many surprises out of her past what we get (powers and personality) in the first few episodes.
Ky- Huh, another Sonic character... How many does that make? (Scans all previous seasons) Wow, 9 O.o Fake complaining aside (I was more curious than anything), some fun facts, 2 seasons had 2 Sonic characters, and we haven't had one since season 11, so we are sorta due for it. Another fun fact, there wasn't a single Sonic character in either All Star series, interestingly enough.
As for the actual character, ironically, I feel like I'm more confident about him with my gut than any of the four here. He's going to be an interesting character that makes it at least moderately far that you don't know what to expect from him. Unless he is a random evil mastermind, which like the Critic I doubt, I will probably like him a lot. I look forward to him.
Lea- She looks....interesting. Obviously hiding something. Like, ridiculously obvious. How big that something is, however, is debatable....
Leah- ....Until you see Leah. But like Critic points out, another twin situation is...weird, and SWSU wouldn't pull it twice without reason. Series choice is also interesting. I like the predictions of the earlier comments of Lea being a psychic like Sabrina. It would really make sense of all of this, and especially of why she's on the Super Tribe. Lea is probably the more important one, although at first glance I like Leah more and hope she does better, even though she won't.
On a completely random note, while I was going through all the previous seasons on the Sonic-character count, I have to say the Hash/Sasha reveal still strikes me as my favorite moment in SFC history. I never really did get over that reveal, and Sasha has been one of my favorite characters ever since.
This cast is looking very promising so far. Here's to hoping that this season has someone that can hit me as hard as Sasha did~
@anime9001: The Hash/Sasha thing was probably the best kept secret of all of them. At least for the others; Alleio/Bonnie/Twins some people caught on pretty early
@SWSU-Master: Yeah, it was definitely that, the fact that you left more than enough hints for people to figure it out that no one caught, and that she was a genuinely likable character that really made her for me.
I'd say that the fact the secret wasn't used for some major plot device like all the others were helped to make her for me too. The season would have been more or less the same with or without her (Aside from hers and Orwell's side story, of course), which made me appreciate it all the more.
Juli: Yay for Juli! For those who knew her as 'Inkling' back in Dingo Canyon I really hope you enjoy her here. While definitely strong in that season she's... definitely not the strongest one here, being on a tribe of all super heroes/players. She's clever, but can make mistakes on a fly if she's not looking at the big picture. We'll see what she makes of this super hero tribe.
Ky: Notring really to make note of here. Seems like an early boot.
Lea: Again, like Jeff said, it's hard to point out what she's going to do. Something about her screams odd though...
Leah: Jeff went into more detail about Leah then Lea. So I have a feeling the twin thing is a lie. Jeff didn't mention it at all even when the Critic said otherwise.
@TJBambi93: When it comes to Juli. Overpowered in some seasons might barely be meeting average in power this season
Juli: Seems like a fun character, I see her being a bit brash and annoying, but overall a hero character
Ky: He's hard to get a read on, but just by the comments I think he'll be misunderstood quite a bit
Lea: Definitely calling her as a Zoroark, because Dittos aren't intelligent enough to pose as a person and she seems a little bit crafty. Also, Dittos are genderless, which would throw off the ratio in reality
Leah: Not getting too much a vibe off of her either way, mostly gonna play off of Lea
@Baramend: It may be hard for people to take Ky at face value, but maybe they're wise not to
Juli: She seems like someone who can prove herself in a group of stronger contestants so I'll root for her
Ky: Probably an advanced technology freak. If the others don't understand how to use this powers to their advantage he might be gone quickly.
Lea: I doubt the sunglasses are just for the looks. She might as well become a villain on the jury since our previewers are both underestimating her.
Leah: Remembering her confidence from the preview I doubt that "some earth magic" is the only thing she's capable of and that her relationship to Lea is different than the one of a twin sister. Still thinking she has to leave pre-merge though
@SkySurfer: Well some people can have big ego's for little power. Look at Aquaman, he's a smug prick
Part III of 100% wrong predictions!!!!
Juli-- 2nd voted out after she accidentally inks her tribe after eating beans won at reward.
Ky- Cruises through the game really easily, until the final immunity challenge involves magnets.
Lea/Leah- revealed to be 1st Mother-daughter cyborg clones in SFC history.
@qazox: Well, the most accurate thing about your predictions was predicting their inaccuracy
Hmm lets see hear.
Juli: like I said before for I don't think she's going to go far.
KY: I got a feeling he's gonna be fun ta watch.
Lea & Leah: Ok somethings not right hear...oh....OOOHHHHHHH I think I see what's going on hear. I might be wrong but I think 20 is the wrong number.
Great cast so far
@ChaoticCross: Then what is the right number?
