Champions Online Costume Bingo!

Face it: one of the most fun activities you can have in Champions Online (and CoH as well) is people watching, to witness the endless bounds of creative costume construction… as well as the hordes of similar knock-offs.Β  To encourage this Peeping Tom activity, Bio Break is proud to present Champions Online Costume Bingo — get five in a row and yell “BINGO!” in the comments section here (let me know which five you got, mkay?).Β  Play as often as you like!


By the way, you cannot check more than one box per character you see (so an Iron Man clone doesn’t work for both “Iron Man” and “Marvel Character” — you have to pick just one).

    I know what I’ll be doing between teams in Paragon tomorrow

    Damn you. Once again, you win the internet.

    Genius πŸ˜€

    I’m kind of sad, I haven’t seen a Chuck Norris yet. I did see a John McClane (barefoot and all!) which was pretty cool.

    I jumped casually into Champions earlier this week. It is a lot of fun. Creating costumes is way too addicting. I am still trying to figure out all the options as there are so many. If only all MMOs had this kind of character creation. The odds of ALTitis are huge! I already have three toons I’m running around in the starter area.

    I love the graphic style of this game a lot as it has a neat comic book feel to it. I’ve seen some pretty cool designs running around and some not so cool. But to each their own.

    So far I’ve encountered the following:

    – One-Color Only
    – Marvel Superhero Clone (Moon Knight)
    – Twin Guns and Trenchcoat
    – Another Video Game Character (Bright Wizard from WAR)
    – Red Demon with a Tail
    – You Wish You Made It (tons of these)
    – 4+ Mismatching Colors (too many)
    – Anime Anything (the guy with spiked hair from Dragonball)
    – Evil Clown
    – I’m Batman
    – Ninja
    – DC Superhero Clone (Zatanna)
    – Space Marine

    Still have a few to go but I’m always looking.

  5. Syp September 11, 2009 / 10:54 am

    @ Ysharros – Does that come with a lifetime supply of marmet? Marmade? Whatever that is?

  6. Sven September 11, 2009 / 10:56 am

    Very good but I may have to scratch out Chuck Norris and change it to Neo from The Matrix.

  7. Castamere September 11, 2009 / 11:08 am

    Good thing you didn’t make this a drinking game or you’d be single handedly responsible for the alcohol poisoning deaths of thousands.

    I think Anime Anything could easily be replaced with Dragonball anything. I don’t know how many Gokus and Vegetas I’ve run into – but I’m surprised no one has done a Future Trunks or something. Single Blade/Force would be perfect.

    Oh God, I’ve said too much.

  8. Zed September 11, 2009 / 11:51 am

    Let’s see, I’ve seen:

    One-colour (usually a spectral type with fire flight)
    Marvel Superhero clone
    Twin guns + trenchcoat (actually I have one)
    Video game character (Minuteman from Freedom Force)
    Red Demon with tail (actually demoness)

    I guess that qualifies me for a top-row Bingo. πŸ™‚

    I’ve also seen:
    – You wish you made it (the Cat in the Hat)
    – Female w/ skimpy bikini
    – 4+ mismatching colours
    – Anime anything
    – Clown (your evilness may vary)
    – Ninja (no pirate yet)
    – DC superhero clone (Supes, especially)
    – Space Marine
    – Deadpool
    – The Hulk

  9. Oakstout September 11, 2009 / 11:51 am

    I’m guilty of making a Marvel character so if you see me, I hope you get bingo.

  10. Oakstout September 11, 2009 / 11:53 am

    Oh I did see one called “A. Blinkon” and yes it looked just like the 16th President. So I get one for Historical character sighted, right?

  11. Zyketor September 11, 2009 / 1:14 pm

    wow, i don’t fit any of those 0.o
    i guess i’ll have to play it :p

  12. Pangoria Fallstar September 11, 2009 / 1:18 pm

    I saw Mister Ohm, unclear if they meant Johnny Ohm from Imperfects, or the scientist.

    I’ve seen Samus Aran, the Tick, Arthur (from the same Tick series), Tom Welling, Alucard from Hellsing, Iron Man, Cyclops, Spiderman, Superman, Batman, Neo from the Matrix, Robot Chicken, Spidergirl, Green Hornet, and The Hulk.

    I’ve seen more catgirls than you can shake a (st)ick at.

    I’ve seen Darth Gokuverine.

    As for one I wish I had made… this guy made an old man superhero, I have a pic of it up on my blog, you should check it out, >.>

  13. boburt September 11, 2009 / 1:27 pm

    I was running around on my Comedian clone (named Blake) in pvp when I encountered…. The Comedian (named “The Comedian”). My team thought it was hilarious, which considering our namesake it WAS sorta hilarious. Guess the joke was on us πŸ˜‰

  14. Chad L. September 11, 2009 / 1:27 pm


    I’ve actually seen about 5 F. Trunks so far.

  15. Tremayne September 11, 2009 / 1:46 pm

    Guilty on the “twin guns with trenchcoat” thing. At least my character has an oriental dragon emblem on her trenchcoat for a bit of variety.

    Best “historical” I saw was a character called Flaming Lincoln which was a pretty good Abe Lincoln clone… who then turned on Fire Form and laid waste to a bunch of Foxbat’s goons.

    Still not seen anything to match the surreal sight in the early days of City of Heroes, when I encountered Ronald McDonald beating the crap out some Skulls gangers.

  16. Dre September 11, 2009 / 2:07 pm

    Dern, I thought I was the only person who made Samus Aran! πŸ˜›

  17. Incubusion September 11, 2009 / 2:12 pm

    I saw Hulk Hogan. Does that count as historic?

  18. canazza September 11, 2009 / 2:24 pm

    Grats on the CO Site link πŸ˜€

  19. Zed September 11, 2009 / 2:40 pm

    My ‘twin guns & trenchcoat’ character is actually a ghost, with ethereal blue fire flight, colouration, and everything. πŸ˜‰

    I know, not a heck of a lot more original, but it’s better than just twin guns and a trenchcoat! πŸ™‚

  20. James Taylor September 11, 2009 / 2:45 pm

    I tried to make a Spike from Cowboy Beebop, but there is no hair in the inventory that can quite match his, spiked afro. so I guess I failed at ‘anime anything’.

  21. Onyx September 11, 2009 / 3:28 pm

    BINGO! To the Marvel hero line!

    World War Hulk
    Robot Abe Lincoln
    I’ve seen 2 evil clowns, and a friend nemesis is a frownie face if that counts. XD
    TONS of Ironmen and only 1 was good (because he had an accurate Hulk Buster alt costume. XD)
    And about 7 Deadpools and only 1 was good. (And he picked acrobatics instead of Teleportation. D=)

    Now what do I win? o.o

  22. Cpt. Jack September 11, 2009 / 4:14 pm

    may be too easy, I see everything on that list every time I play.

  23. Moloth September 11, 2009 / 4:37 pm

    crap… i may have inadvertently helped you all fill in a box. I made an old Pen and Paper character of mine from a space opera setting (Alternity, Star*Drive, to be exact) named Gauge.

    He’s a space marine.

    sorry about that. 😦

  24. Sithinious September 11, 2009 / 5:02 pm

    Can I count my own characters? I can fill 4 slots that way :)~

    2 guns & trenchcoat (x2 actually)
    Red demon with tail
    Space Marine

  25. soylent robot September 11, 2009 / 5:51 pm

    I aim to make a hero who can cross the “one colour only” and “4 mismatching colour” boxes at once. He will be called Eyebleed.

  26. Pangoria Fallstar September 11, 2009 / 7:37 pm

    Grats on being linked from the Champions homepage.

  27. Tylatz September 11, 2009 / 10:58 pm

    The only one that I haven’t seen is Chuck Norris. Then again, I was making a character named Charles Morris, but stopped just before I made him. Does that count? If so then I’ve cleared the entire board! Go me. πŸ™‚

    I made a giant toad type character named Toad that I was wondering if I was going to have someone tell me that I cloned Pimple from Battletoads. When I got around to remaking him on live guess who I saw at the public quest in the tutorial? Pimple. He looks smaller in person.

  28. CHERRY POPINS September 11, 2009 / 11:35 pm

    think stripper should have made the list. my toons cherry popins and candy samples need a bingo spot.

  29. Crow21 September 12, 2009 / 12:55 am

    In a 5×5 square you’ve summed up the entire player base, gj! Oh you forgot Anubis tho. I cant go a play session without seeing at least one.

  30. Brett September 12, 2009 / 2:40 am

    Bingo on the UL-BR diagonal!

    Seeing a martial arts Abe Lincoln and a Hal Jordan Green Lantern clone finished it for me.

  31. Mariel Martog September 12, 2009 / 3:17 am

    I am sad to say that My character Bhump hits 2 in a row and sadly may appear to be a third in the same row.

    Bhump is Space Pirate Amazon Ninja Catgirl.

    Catgirl = Anime
    Pirate and Ninja

    she is mostly Dark Purple.

    If you wish you made it then find a Space Marine, or ask me to log in mine… :-Þ

  32. DracoPrime September 12, 2009 / 9:12 am

    You forgot “Catgirl.” There are enough of those running around that my allergies are acting up.

  33. Taco September 12, 2009 / 1:38 pm

    You also forgot the “Default” guy. Everytime I make a new toon, I see a default blue/yellow character with a blue mask. :S

  34. btk6-5000 September 12, 2009 / 1:57 pm

    I made Friendly Fire from the live action The Tick show (he was The Fiery Blaze’s sidekick). I also made a Flowchart Ken (from SF4) but I hate the MA power set now, so I don’t use him.

    The most boring looking one I made was a Blue Sun Agent (from Firefly/Serenity).

  35. Sinisterr September 13, 2009 / 9:07 am

    I’ve seen Hulk, Batman, Marvel Clone, Darth Somebody, Twin Guns + Trench Coat, Red Demon, and Anime anything.

  36. Solidfreeze September 13, 2009 / 12:50 pm

    Guilty also…

    Sub-Zero – Turned out amazing
    Iron Man
    Girl in skimpy bikini with trench coat and guns…. double points?

    Ironically…Hulk is my Nemesis…lol

  37. Morphidae September 13, 2009 / 5:05 pm

    I did indeed see a Chuck Norris in a training center
    I also saw:

    Twenty One (from the Venture Bros.)
    x2 HellBoy knock offs
    The Dark Knight
    Wade Dead Pool (male & female versions)
    The same John McClane that was mentioned above
    Darth Vader

    and I am currently running Dean Winchester

  38. Azrael September 14, 2009 / 2:45 am

    So much for hoping nobody else would think of making a Dean Winchester! Oh well, I only made him to piss off my roommate. I ended up making another character with munitions who I like a lot better. Mostly because she’s got skin tight leather and the vixen pose.

    But yeah, I’m pretty sure I’ve seen just about everything on here except for a Chuck Norris as well.

  39. Monolith September 14, 2009 / 3:42 am

    But the “Free!” square should be renamed “Catgirl!”.
    It won’t matter really since the second toon you’ll encounter will most likelly be a catgirl, but just for completeness sake.

  40. napster September 14, 2009 / 1:18 pm

    i had a pirate myself, with fire flight but changed the color of fire from yellow to blue, so it had a ghostly effect, someone even complimented my toon for that.
    my main toon was alex mercer (hood, leather jacket, jeans and shoes)

  41. napster September 14, 2009 / 1:24 pm

    also one of my toons was old snake from metal gear solid 4 (bandana, eyepatch, harness, twin guns, and mustache) which i was really proud of
    oh and i saw dr. manhattan, roschach running around in the beginning zone

  42. Vector X September 15, 2009 / 2:59 am

    You forgot “hilarious unintentional typo”. I ran into someone named “Dark Phonix” (who, amazingly, didn’t look like the Marvel character). I kept making jokes about how I was hooked on her, but she didn’t seem to get it.

  43. SΓ€ge September 15, 2009 / 6:45 am


    There’s only two i’m missing : the chicken-robot and surprisly Batman.
    But i’ll be glad if i can meet one. πŸ˜€

  44. lalala September 15, 2009 / 7:49 am

    Hmm havent seen any Samus or Batman. But a lot of Hulks and Dukes.
    Once i seen a Deadpool that actually namend Deadpool. lool

    but a cybog-ninja-pirate… what category fits?

  45. lalala September 15, 2009 / 7:55 am

    and well you forgot Guy Brush and Robocop

  46. Lekon September 15, 2009 / 2:13 pm

    I actually saw half this list in one guy. There was a guy running around called “Copyright Infringement Man.” Cyclops Eyepiece, Space Marine Shoulder, Batman chest/chest logo, Superman’s cape, etc. I was too stunned to take a pic sadly.

  47. mm September 16, 2009 / 9:17 am

    I’m only missing a Batman. Can’t believe I haven’t seen him yet.

    Two of the more creative ones I’ve seen are Abe 2.0 – a robotic Abe Lincoln, and someone who made a Bruce Banner/Hulk char where his costume changes between builds. He’s a spitting image for Bruce complete with labcoat in what I’m guessing is the support build, and he switches to a dead-on match for the Hulk in what’s probably a dps or protection build.

    I’ve seen too many that look like someone just hit the random button and took the first result. I’m mean seriously – flippers for feet, a skeletal head, and big honkin’ staellite dish shoulders with robotic arms? What are you smoking?

    That begs for a worst looking character screenshot contest. Redact the names to protect the innocent. πŸ˜‰


  48. Windjammer September 16, 2009 / 8:43 pm

    I saw “Copyright Infringement Man” as well. Pretty funny… Way to break all of the rules and yet none at the same time.

    The rest are easy, except for Chuck… it really never occured to me to watch before now though.




  49. Robrecht September 17, 2009 / 12:07 pm

    Some people might count my toon’s Tank build Costume as a ‘Space Marine’, mainly because it’s a power armour with the large Emblem Shoulder.

    However I would like to point out that it’s very hard to make a large Power Armour type costume without making it look vaguely Space-Marine-ish.

    Still, yes I’ve seen plenty of actual Space Marines and I think Chuck and Batman are the only ones I haven’t seen. Wait… Does Man-Bat could for Batman? If so, Bingo!

  50. Kilroy September 20, 2009 / 7:19 pm

    Personally I would’ve replaced ‘Chuck Norris’ with ‘Wolf Head’.

    Pretty much spot on otherwise.

  51. Jeremiah Zero September 23, 2009 / 12:42 pm

    I’m kinda surprised at how many people haven’t seen a Chuck Norris running around out there yet. I seem to stumble over one just about every other time I log in.

    On the other hand, I’ve yet to see a Samus. Seen most of the others though, responsible for a few myself, but only one made it out of open beta: One-Color Only (a dark-power hero who’s — surprise, surprise — all black). I submitted an evil clown to the IGN Character Creator Contest though (Mecha-Clownzilla).

    In open beta, I had both a Marvel clone (Viet Nam Flashbacks Man, AKA the Punisher — wanted his name to be Post Traumatic Stress Disorder Man, but that was 2 letters too long), and a DC clone (Fruitbat Man). Decided it was in my best interest to nix those two once the game went live.

  52. Rycr September 27, 2009 / 12:43 am

    XD This is full of win.

    I saw three different Hulks and two Iron Men in a three-hour period. Do I get bonus points?

  53. Tee Parsley September 11, 2010 / 7:02 pm

    I made an undead ninja pirate. I demand three squares!

    Because there is nothing so fun as kicking foes with your Wooden Leg!

    Clever meme.
