Characters: Enter The Arena As Your Avatar
Throughout the four threads seen so far called "Enter the Arena... As Your Avatar!" there have been many contestants. While the actual number is no doubt far less than more famous games, there is still an appreciable multitude. Here are some of the players who participated in all four threads and/or made a suitably memorable impression on the thread(s) they were in (in alphabetical order, and with avatars listed in order of first appearance):

    open/close all folders 

    Anne Beeche: 

Anne Beeche started playing in v3 with Jack Clive, and has been playing on and off ever since. She tends to use left-handed characters since she's left-handed herself, and she's very particular about both location and detailed description of the action. Getting shot doesn't cut it for her—She has to know where she got shot, with what kind of ammunition, from what direction, etc. Despite being a Large Ham in real life, most of the characters she plays tend to keep a low profile. Close-combat melee fighters are her specialty.

Characters she has played as:
  • Jack Clive — An original character from Project One Fifty Four (A project of Anne Beeche's that no longer has a page). He is essentially Super Weight level 1, though has natural night vision, comparable with most animals'. Prefers lead pipes, revolvers, and shotguns. Does not know how to read. Speaks English.
  • Borghildr — Another original character, from Anne Beeche's complete rehash of Beowulf. Valkyrja, super-weight level 2. Proficient with a wide variety of weapons from the Migration period, her personal specialty being the sword. May also use spitting mead as a distraction. Is equipped with rings of strength on both feet and right hand, giving those limbs literally the strength to tear off a giant's arm. Speaks Proto-Nordic, but may come with a translator.
  • Beowulf — From the rehash, not the original. Completely unsuited for battle, but has a fantastic singing voice and a talent for the lyre. Decent with a seax when it counts (as long as he doesn't faint from the sight of blood), has a talent for rune-work. Also, left-handed. Speaks Proto-Nordic.
  • Snow Villiers — My first non-original character in the Arena. Quite easily a Super Weight level 2 with his L'cie abilities and AMP-enhanced strength. I took away Sovereign Fist and Shiva to make things fair, spells are more dynamic in what he can do with them. Has a Speaks ambiguous English.
  • Twilight Princess Link w/ Midna — Another non-original character, Super Weight level 2, is the Hero, obviously. The first time I used him, he came equipped with only the bow and arrow alongside his sword and shield. He is completely mute, Hylian is assumed to be ambiguous English.
  • Niloufar — Another character from Project One Fifty Four. Has a talent for explosives, heavy artillery, and dead-pan delivery. First time used, came equipped with an M16, revolver, and grenades.

    Anno R: 

Anno R has played in "Enter the Arena As Your Avatar (v3)", but did not play in v1 or v2. While her first avatar didn't do much fighting, it deserves mentioning that Recette's weapons dealing business did rather well in the Arena, for all that her starting stock was only standard RPG weaponry and supplies. She has played as:

    Arachnos 
Arachnos occasionally (or more like rarely) appears in V4. His most notable contribution to the game was an unauthorized boss battle against the Anti-Spiral in a scaled-down Grand Zamboa. He has played as:

    Armored Fury 

    Artemis92/Knowlessman: 

Artemis92 played in "Enter the Arena... As Your Avatar!" and "Enter the Arena... As Your Avatar (Version 2: No Supernaturals)", and started the third thread, "Enter the Arena As Your Avatar (v3)". He then ended v3 with a Boss Rush finale that culminated in an Arty vs Knowless vs players free-for-all, creating the fourth thread shortly thereafter as Knowlessman. The characters he has played as are:

  • Laeven the apprentice wizard note , in v1, v2, and v3.
  • The Nac Mac Feegles in v1 note .
    • An unnamed, solitary Feegle in v3.
  • Mattias Nilsson in v2 and v3.
  • Agent Carr in v2 and v3.
  • Bun-bun in v2 and v3.
  • Tip Tucker in v3 (twice).
  • A rogue Cackle in v3.
  • Mewtwo in v3 (first bossfight and finale).
  • The bridgekeeper from Monty Python and the Holy Grail in v3 (Leadup to the second bossfight).
  • Soul Edge, and possessed!Gear in v3 (second bossfight and finale).
    • Nightmare, during v3's finale (mostly because nobody fell for it the second time around).
  • Tzekel Kan in v3 (third bossfight and finale).
  • A demon ape... thing from an iPod Touch game called Temple Run in v3.
  • A Frost Troll from Skyrim, for all of about one post, in v3.
  • A Mad Prophet from Magic: The Gathering in v3 (Herald of the fourth bossfight).
  • Crona in v3 (fourth bossfight and finale).
  • Lesser A'Tuin note , in v3.
  • The Blue Novice, an OC created in MS Paint, in v4.
  • PEPSI MAAAAAN in v4.
  • The Incredible Hulk in v4.
  • Hiro the Mini Ninja in v4.
    • Shun, too, for a bit note .
  • Voldemort in v4, for all of two seconds.
  • Leif and Jessica from Hellsing in v4.

    Burinnu: 

Burinnu has competed in all three Arenas, as various different characters. The characters she has played as are:

    Catfish42: 

Catfish42 played in the first two threads, and was one of the players with the most control over the airspace. He has played:

    Chabal2: 

Chabal2 has only played in "Enter the Arena... As Your Avatar!" thus far, but played for most of it, and had quite possibly the strongest avatar in v1, excepting a possible tie with MuNuXi's Ice and Fire Phoenixes. He played as:

  • Chernabog, as represented in Fantasia's Night On Bald Mountain, in v1.

    Dreigonix 

Dreigonix first joined in v4 Whiterun. He has a tendency to bring in a new character for every battle. And to open up with a dash-slash. Loves danmaku SHMUPs and has played several characters from such. Is now on a Brave Frontier frenzy.

Used characters:

     Fergard Stratoavis 

First appeared in Williamette Hall in v3 and has since then used a myriad of different characters. Some appeared a few times, some had only brief appearances.

Some of the more used characters in v4:

    Flanker66: 

Flanker66 played in the first two threads, and played mostly air-based avatars. The characters he has played as are:

    Flash Of Sonic: 

Flash Of Sonic is a new player, joining during the intermission after the third boss fight in v3. The character he is currently playing as is:

    Foxmccloud 4387 

Tropers/foxmccloud4387 joined in v4, in the middle of a fight against Godzilla. He tends to use swordsmen with more abilities than meets the eye, though he's starting to expand beyond this trope. Has formed an unofficial Friendly Rivalry with The Hobo Tortle, ever since the battle with Godzilla. Out of the five unique characters he's used, four of them have died at least once. The avatars he's used so far are:

    Gloom/Gabriel Gloom/Vox 

Gloom, AKA Gabriel Gloom, AKA Vox, has played in all three Arenas. Characters he has played as include:

     Inceptiond 
Inceptiond is a relatively new player who, for some reason, is regularly involved in awesome moments. So far, most of his characters are in the Super Tier. His played cast is, so far:

     josh 6243 

    Maple Platoon 

A new player, Maple Platoon joined just in time to participate in the fourth bossfight. So far, she has played as:

    Micool TNT 

New to v4, often seen playing both Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha leads, though he has also played several characters related to Puella Magi Madoka Magica, including creating the notable Miniboss Cyberna, the Wireframe Witch, and several other assorted characters.

    Plumbum: 

Plumbum started the first thread, "Enter the Arena... As Your Avatar!", and has competed as many different characters in all three. Plumbum is a bit of a lurker, since timezone issues make him 5-8 hours ahead of the mostly American posters. Will change characters in a heartbeat, but tends for humans, or humanoid characters that have some hand-to-hand skills or are just plain unique note , reason being that just 'popping off a couple of shots in your direction' just isn't personal enough. He has to be there, in your face, kicking your ass arse. Is not a big fan of clinical precision or the use of maps. Intended to use Johnny Cage as the victim of Soul Edge, but gypped. Characters he has played as are:

    Rallyfan9000: 

Rallyfan9000 played in the first thread, and started the second thread, "Enter the Arena As Your Avatar (Version 2: No Supernaturals)". He played mostly air-based avatars.

    Randomman 5 

Randomman5 joined in v3 (specifically, in Williamette Mall) and quickly became a regular in the Arena. Character preferences are all over the place, aside from an overabundance of Capcom characters.

Has played as (in no particular order):

    Rivux 

    Mobile Leprechaun 
Mobile Leprechaun first appeared fairly recently in v3. She really needs to get better at the whole "you're supposed to fight" thing.

Characters used:

    Strigon: 

Strigon is one of the tropers responsible for escalating Enter the Arena v2 into an army-against-army fight and bringing an airforce of OC's into the fray. Really wishes that he, Flanker and Rallyfan would fight an epic air-to-air battle.

So far, he's played as:

    TARDISES: 

TARDISES is a relative newcomer to the Arena, although he had lurked for some time before joining, and had read the thread up to that point. He wasn't too sure about joining at first, being unsure about what characters to use. That quickly changed - the common theme for him now seems to be characters that can fly and fire projectiles, although he did consider using the Doomguy. Both characters he's used so far have used drills at least once, with No Legs looting his from a Big Daddy, his second kill in the Arena.

Thus far, he has played as:

  • No Legs the Cat in V3. At first he couldn't even speak, learning to in the pages leading up to the second boss battle. Inventory note  contains a shard of Soul Edge, obtained as loot in the second boss battle, and the aforementioned drill.
  • Iku Nagae in v3. Her inventory is currently blank.

    The Hobo Tortle 

A relatively new troper, The Hobo Tortle first appeared in v4, playing as Calvin and Hobbes. Ever since, he has now become a semi-regular fighter, and has played a myriad of characters. He has formed an unofficial Friendly Rivalry with foxmccloud4387, ever since the battle with Godzilla.

Characters played so far:

    Trip 

A semi-regular in the Arena. Is fond of .hack and Shin Megami Tensei characters.
