Naturally, someone who turns into a tornado when then spin should gain the ability to makes real ones.

It's Frisk from Undertale. I should probably have stated that in my post, though.

Wondering if a Jurassic Park Trex is famous enough to make it super ultra. Then again I should probably challenge myself and make it a little more difficult.

At first, i'm thinking Ultrasonic the hedgehog. Mega bowser, Ultimate Spyro, ultra Blastoise (if anyone cares about Squirtle) or Dr Robotnic.

May have to do more research. I'll probably do a ton and then just submit the best one :P

Do: My hero academia, Cardcaptor sakura, Narnia, Steven universe, Redwall, Ever after high, Little witch academia or Precure count as popular? I have ideas for all of them just don't know which to go for..

Hi everyone! I have already got a few ideas, but I need help because I can't decide on one. Shall I do a max level: Sid the sloth; Tigger; Dumbo; Mike Wasowski; Sully; Eeyore; Manny the mammoth? I am trying to get quite lame characters and turn them into something awesome, while still keeping their dorky looks. Please help me decide! And good luck everyone!
