Akinator is a 20-questions style web thing, only it confines itself to people and fictional characters. Its main claim to fame is how scarily accurate it is; the only time I've successfully stumped it was by playing the Humbug from The Phantom Tollbooth, and I've played this thing a lot.
Post your Akinator experiences!
Beat him using Blue/Leon from Alter Aila.
No match for me. An easy win using Rhue from The Way.
Beat him using Kasuga Kusunoki.
I almost stumped him with Mr. Rogers. He guessed Gene Kelly first, then when I chose to go on, he guessed it right.
Stumped him with Kiel from Drowtales.
Beat him using General Landry.
Duquan from The Wire.
First: There's been a thread about that site at some point, but it might have been deleted.
Anyway, beat him with Ray Carling.
I love how the Blue Eyes White Dragon confounds him because of the whole "spirit of a human woman" thing.
What the...what? What do you mean spirit of a woman? I don't remember that!
Also: @Catfish: Is that easy?

He got Nier Replicant in 30 questions.
I used Fraulein Rottenweiler, and he guessed "your ideal lover."
Beat him using Carla from Burn Notice. It guessed Sarah from Chuck, then Fiona (right show), then Parker from Leverage.
This is like the third thread we've had on Akinator, but whatever, Akinator is cool.
It's kind of bad with minor Doctor Who characters, though usually it'll guess it's some kind of Doctor Who alien like the Slitheen or Sontarans.
Surprisingly good with That Guy With The Glasses folk though, though somehow it got "Super Mecha Death Christ 3000" when I tried Ask That Guy With The Glasses.

Beat him today with Fumio of Saitama Chainsaw Shoujo.
Remember: You can always beat character-guessing Djinns, as long as your character is obscure enough.
Actually, that's why I find it more fun to see him get something right.
Though thinking of some Touhou before Ultimecia?

I tried the Friends on the Other Side, and he guessed The Nothing, Zuul and Hexxus, so I guess he was in the right ballpark
Also beat him with Commander Root, Sev and Mr Ollivander.
It successfully guessed Boggy somehow, though Wozza from the same game got the...uhh...Save...frogs?
It also got Pushing Up Roses (Bird Tattooed Let's-Player) pretty quickly.

He’s pretty hard to stump, but I managed it with Annie Haslam.
Beat him with Drawlight.
Stumped him with Tock, took him 30 questions. He guessed the Disreputable Dog from the Abhorsen Trilogy first
EDIT: Why does The Phantom Tollbooth not have a page?! D:
EDIT 2: Because I spelled it wrong. I feel idiotic >.>
