Have you ever looked through another troper's avatar gallery and wondered "What is this particular avatar? Why does this troper have it in his/her gallery?" This game is meant to answer those questions.

Here's how it works: You choose an avatar from the above gallery that confuses you. Maybe you don't even know who or what it is, or maybe you just don't understand why anyone would want it as an avatar.

Then, the person above you edits their post, and starting with a down arrow ([down]), gives a brief explanation of what the avatar is and why they have it in their gallery.

It will be easier to demonstrate when someone replies to this post. tongue

One rule: Only one avatar per post!

[down] Sure thing! That's Boss Wolf from Kung Fu Panda 2. He is The Dragon to the Evil Overlord Shen. I like him because he's far more honorable than Shen, definitely A Father to His Men. Also, I love wolves, and I love Dumb Muscle characters.

'Boss Wolf', eh? I want to know more about this guy. He looks intriguing.

Oh, joy of joys, we're barely six posts in and already folks are getting ninja'd.

[down]Basically, yes; he's literally a stock photo I edited in MS Paint. I can't remember what exactly inspired it, but it's a show or comic concept I had. The Pitch 

[down][down]Meanwhile, that is the sentient divine essence of Art, as depicted in the most hard-to-get ending of The Stanley Parable. Just watch this video, and everything will make sense. Barely.

"Terrence Two"- You always play this character but I don't know where he's from. Was he just a stock photo that you made up a personality for? Either way, it was pretty cool.

[down]I dunno, actually. I just snapped a picture of a really pretty looking teacup I saw at Home Goods, and, tada, an original avatar!

[down]Frank R. Paul's version of a Saturnian, one pictured on the picture of a Saturnian city, Crisium, constructed in the crater of a vast volcano, heated by geysers and inhabited by weird spider people. A better view.

[down] It's a character that I created on MS Paint. He's supposed to be a Non-Ironic Clown puma, but unfortunately, some tropers still think he's creepy. tongue

The one on the right seems familiar, but who are these two?

[down] T.W. Barker from Sonic Boom. He's a Repulsive Ringmaster, which not only ties in to the fact that I like circus-related stuff, but it's also a trope I created. Also, he's a wolf. See the first post. waii

I already know that most of your avatars are of obscure origins, but this is... something else.

[down]That's something I drew myself, exposing my terrible art skills for all to see. He's supposed to be Alex (my favourite Street Fighter character) if he lived in Zootopia. For reference, this is what Alex normally looks like.
