Fan Characters will be competing for $1,000,000.
Let's round the cast off with Tamara, Taro, Xeradonus and Zach!
Tamara: She reminds me a lot like Jocasta. Which means that she could be an early boot because of how long Jocasta lasted. Then again, for I all know, they are much more different than I originally thought.
Taro: Another wildcard. Should be fun.
Xeradonus: Wow... How this guy is not going to become an early boot is beyond me.
Zach: Something tells me his power is going be become his character arc. Personality-wise, he doesn't seem that much interesting.
Great cast of characters on both sides. I can't wait for this season to begin! :D
@Tinyhammer: I really do like this cast. They're a fun group
The final cast release!
Tamara: If Freddy and Billy weren't on this tribe I would say she was the first boot.. Eh, I'm thinking around mid-merge she gets booted for being a jury threat. She seems nice.
Taro: Calling it now, he's the main villain of the season. He's makes it somewhere between Final 7 and final 4 and goes out in a humiliating way.
Xeradonus: He's a decoy villain in the first few episodes while Taro goes under the radar, before being back stabbed just before the merge.
Zach: Possibly the main hero of the season, he keeps his power secret until early merge, then later causes the downfall of Taro. This is my early winner pick.
I am so exited for this! But sadly all these predictions I made on these cast releases are probably gonna get thrown out the window by the end of the first episode.. Oh well.
@Blastoise_FTW: Well wrong predictions are part of the fun arent they?
Tamara: I feel like she'll be another Jocasta, which I wouldn't mind, though I don't know if she'll get very far.
Taro: Not sure why he's on the Super tribe, but I suppose we'll find out. He seems interesting enough.
Xeradonus: Kinda hoping for a Bowser-esque villain (Evil yet comedic), though I have a feeling we won't be that lucky. At least he's outmatched by some on his tribe, so he shouldn't be too much of a problem.
Zach: Somewhat interested to see what his power will be, but otherwise meh. He seems uninteresting at the moment.
Overall, I'm really looking forward to this season ^^

So, final cast release. We have the token black girl, a chubby tanuki/tanooki, a blatantly evil asshole, and...a douche. Honestly, this might be the best release yet, since all four of these fools seem like big players. I really don't like Zach for some reason, and Tamara isn't my type, but Xera and Taro seem like fun! And, nice to see it'll start this month, and not two months from now in March or something.

@Tailslover13: Well the majority is disliked from you.... But Thats to be expected.
@SWSU-Master: It's best to start off hating things and then be pleasantly surprised, rather than loving most things only to be sadly disappointed. Right?
@Tailslover13: I try not to get too deeply invested in things, like webcomics, to get too upset if they end up bad. I can handle being invested enough to risk some slight disappointment, but if I need to do defensive measures to protect myself from major disappointment then I might be too heavily invested.
Plus generally, someone who hates everything and only later might lighten up isn't that fun to be around.
@Zephiarath: Well, congrats on being able to feel that way then. I'm not like that, but it's fine if you are.
Tamara- She might be fun. I liked Jocasta, so Tamara might be similar. Maybe even funnier?
Taro- He's definitely going to be a sneaky player. Can't really guess his super power aside from turning things into leaves and putting them in his pocket. XD
Xeradonus- Like Robbie said, he seems very similar to Enter, and with these little spirits joining him, we're seeing a new type of player enter the field. We can assume early boot, but where's the fun in that?
Zach- I think I know what his power is. XD Oh well, for the sake of things I am not going to speak my mind. Anyway, Zach seems like a swell dude. Might do well, could do poorly. I think... he might be another early merger?
@TJBambi93: Well if Xeradonus lasts there will be complaints. But as we see from SFC10. Doesnt do much for the current season
@TJBambi93: Also, in terms of favorites and non favorites...
Favs: Cordelia, Juli, Slyvia, Zach
Okay: Daisuke, Dustin, Freddy, Gekkota, Ky, Lea, Luna, Shaega, Tamara, Taro, Xeradonus
Eh: Billy, Brandi, Cha'Telle, Leah, Marie
If you go down a route like Enter for Xeradonus, you could actually make a likable Enter (if that's possible :P). Wherever he goes, I'm hoping he makes it far!
@DryIceBros: Is likable Enter an Oxymoron?
Tamara: I think she was on SFC9 already. Though seriously I hope she has her own flair to her, she could be fun!
Taro: His biggest power is obviously his expandable ballsack. Duh.
Xeradonus: So if he isn't from Undertale why was his laugh in a different font...? Anyway I hope he's lulzy and doesn't last too long.
Zach: Sounds like a boring protagonist.
@Vilecheese: The Laugh was in a font because its hard to sound evil in Calibri font.
Fuck that doesn't work here.
You just gave me an idea for a new character to submit.....
I look forward to seeing the SFC15 Banner when it's up! Should be a fun season!
@Timeheart: It's up!
5th round of wrongness!!!
Tamera-- obviously the winner.
Taro-- revealed his real power is mind control via leaves.
Xerodonas-- his visitor will be Alucard from Castlevania III, if he lasts that long.
Zach-- Hulk & Black Widow's alternate universe child.
My 1 real prediction was ru-ined by Anime 9001 last comic. The Sheaga one.
@qazox: Mind Leaves. Genius.
Huh....I think the buildup of no one feeling like early leavers built up, because a lot of these feel like canon fodder for me. That's probably just me though.
Tamara- I feel like she got the overly-positive review to mislead us. I do not expect from Tamara other than a few good one liners, and then the boot~
Taro- Could go either way. No idea what his real power is, but my gut still says that he leaves 5th-ish (heh, "leaves"....)
Xeradonus- Gone first or lasts until at LEAST late pre-merge, and since we have a minion I'm going with the latter. Sounds like a lot of fun, the type of villain I can really get behind~
Zach- Once again, I feel like he was given a secretive backstory just to make him a surprise early boot. Regardless when he leaves, I hope he surprises me.
and with that, I must say that this cast is looking GREAT. I can't wait for the season to start~
@anime9001: Well sometimes the Canon Fodder can surprise. That's always fun to do XD
And now even more analysis, because I love doing these on every season I'm actually present for.
Tamara: I see her going prior to the merge due to her lack of physical ability. That said, if she makes it, her cunning may make her a legitimate threat.
Taro: Interesting. If he's anything like Tom Nook, then he'll try to drive up rents on the island. His power? No idea, but I can't wait to find out. Seems like a nice trickster/comic relief character.
Xeradonus: Oh, dear. The most obvious candidate for Big Bad of this session, which means this can go two ways. One, people crowd around him like they did to Bowser. Two, he gets taken out early as a massive and obvious threat the way Sephiroth did. I trust he won't end up another Enter, given the reception he got.
Zach: Interesting. The mysterious power adds a wrinkle to my analysis. Not much in the way of personality other than his whole fish out of water thing. He could be either very interesting or very dull.
As a final note, I can't wait for January 28! See you then!
@Sonofhades: I think Zach will surprise some people.
Tamara: The Jocasta comparison is pretty much inevitable. As cunning as she might be, I wouldn't say she makes the merge.
Taro: If someone like him ends up on the super tribe then this might mean trouble for everyone. He won't win but I wouldn't be so surprised if he ends up being one of those liars who get close to the endgame.
Xeradonus: He will be an interesting character for a while but he's definitely not the main but a decoy villain. Jury member? Nah
Zach: If he's from the past, he might not be familar with some modern things and cause a few funny situations because of that. I'd say he shouldn't have too many problems making the merge
Thanks for the cast releases, see you again when SFC15 starts
@SkySurfer: See you then!
Zach... Is he from the movies or comics? Because there is a rather big situational distinction there.
@landis963: Does it really effect the season in anyway?
@landis963: I assume movies
He is more based on the movies
Maybe its just me but Taro's eyes look creepy as hell in the new banner O.o I know their suppose to be closed but it looks like theirs brown pupil-less dots on his eyelids and his eyebrows making an angry expression. Now every time I look at it that's all I see.
aw man, i forgot about this somehow.
taro is going to shapeshift, isn't he? he'll do what jake didn't!
Just like last time, I made a Brantsteele simulation. It actually predicted the winner right last time, being Liz. I wouldn't put too much stock in it this time though...
@RiceAndBeans: That's surprising and interesting. I can't imagine though how it would guess how things would go. And I don't imagine it could know all about the chars in this season... or their abilities.
@RiceAndBeans: Yeah, Xeradonus winning. That's totally going to happen.
@Vilecheese: If I was going to make any premature guesses before the season started, I want to guess that one of the "normals" will win, maybe to push the cliche that a normal person could triumph over someone that on paper is superior in all ways through sheer will and skill alone. Kind of like a Rock Lee (hard work) vs Neji (naturally gifted) sort of comparison.
Also kind of doubt Xeradonus will win, probably going to make one hell of a villain for the season though.
Oh I can't wait, also I FINALY figured out what's up with Lea and Leah. Look at them, one's body seems to be leaning to right and the other the left. Can't you see what I see those two are c- "gets hit in head by frying pan knocking him out"
@ChaoticCross: I.. Don't get it.
@Blastoise_FTW: well you can see there twins right?...What KIND of twins start with a C?
@ChaoticCross: ....I'm an idiot I forget Leah was shown in the preview. Well back to my old ideas, that Lea is a Pokemon who took on the form of Leah or that Lea and Leah are Dimensional Duplicates (same person from a difrent reality, Fairy Tail did it before so it's cannon)
Today is the big day! Shouldn't be too long now!
