As weird as this may seem, this is a list I've wanted to do for a very long time but never got around to posting. Truth is, I don't WANT to hate Teen Titans Go! I don't hate it because it's the popular target, I hate it because it doesn't want to give me any reasons to defend it. When it finally, FINALLY, gets something right...it's almost miraculous. So, this is my Top 5 Best TTG episodes. Why only 5? Cuz there aren't enough good episodes to fill a top 10. First, some honorable mentions: 

A) Video Game References- I hear a lot of people say this episode is actually pretty good, but honestly I just can't see that. It's just good because everything surrounding it is so much worse by comparison. So, yeah, this episode sucks a lot less but it still sucks!
B) Gorilla- There's a lot of people who'd call this the worst episode of the series because Beast Boy comes off like such a dick, but I feel it probably would've been improved dramatically by having an actual catalyst. Think about it: if we saw Robin being a control freak, constantly bossing the Titans around and BB just got sick of it and decided to become a gorilla permanently, it would've been a bit more justified. As is, though, yeah I see where they're coming from.
C) Kicking a Ball and Pretending to be Hurt- I'm not the only one who thought this episode reminded me a little of the South Park episode The Losing Edge, right? Yeah, it just substitutes baseball for soccer (or futbol as they keep calling it). I would've put this on the list, since a few jokes were actually funny and I always love seeing Beast Boy get beat up, but the ending did kinda lose a few points and this would've made the list if there were enough other entries for a top 10.
D) Best Robin- I just kinda liked the fact they referenced the Carrie Kelly, Tim Drake (or maybe Jason Todd, I'm not sure), and Burt Ward Robins for this episode. I suppose, technically, this could come the closest to the unofficial #6, except for...
E) Driving Test- Like Johnny Test, I feel like this show started out good, but then the quality to plummeted into the asphalt, hit magma, and then kept going until it came out the other side. Before that, the first few episodes were kinda funny and this is one of them. While it's impossibly frustrating that Robin didn't figure out he was actually being used as a getaway driver, I'll gladly take this over Ced Tiger, Parasite, Serious Business, Truth, Justice, and What, Brain Food, this is why there probably isn't going to be Worst list; there's just too many candidates--this isn't even a QUARTER of them! Anyway, onto the actual list.

#5) Legendary Sandwich- If Driving Test was more memorable, I probably would've switched them around. This is the episode that kinda divided a lot of people, before the show actively started hating and offending its audience. Raven talks about a supposed "Legendary Sandwich" which is said to have great power. Yeah, it's dumb but she mostly just uses this as an excuse to watch this show's My Little Pony rip-off because in-joke. This episode does have some pretty funny and simple moments, like everyone else having to go across the galaxy and fight monsters...while Robin has to get the bread from the supermarket, and intercuts him bored out of his mind trying to get the bread while the others are beating up monsters for the ingredients. It's actually kinda funny, even the ending works; shame this quality didn't stick.

#4) Salty Codgers- I really, really thought that I'd hate this one. I still think that I should hate this one, but there's just something I can't bring myself to hate about it. The premise is one of the cooler and supremely underrated enemies of the Titans, Mad Mod, drains the Titans of either youth--except Raven; kinda like the episode Revolution, except with lower stakes, and less comedy. If you thought they underutilized Mad Mod before....that's literally his only appearance. The first half of this episode is really why this barely makes the list, but the second half is much better. The Titans have actually become so old that they die, and it's surprisingly a very emotional and very serious moment. Raven refuses to accept their death and literally goes through Hell and back to get their souls. There's a few good jokes, like Raven telling Cyborg's grandkids the story (seriously, that's always bugged me; Mod just AGED them, he didn't send them through time so WTF?), Raven just floating across the River Styx instead of paying Carran, and the song Death sings is pretty good. The ending is surprisingly clever, and I think it was a nice reference how they made Death look like the Flash Villain from the storyline Linkara mentioned (he said it was One More Day done right, but with the Flash). 

#3) Girls' Night Out- Okay, the villains are easily the best characters here: they're funnier, more likable, and, in Dr. Light's case in Caged Tiger, more sympathetic. Why not just have a show about them? And don't tell me they don't want a show with villains as the main characters because these Titans are so heinously unlikable in most episodes they might as WELL be villains! Okay, rant over; Starfire wants to have a Girls' Night Out with Raven when she can't join Robin and the idiots' Boys' Night, so they break out Jinx and wreck the town. It's actually a lot funnier that the girls have a way more wild time while the boys just fuck around and act like it's a party kinda like the Spongebob episode Mid-Life Crustacean. Plus, I just like the flashback with Raven (Raven- "Ha ha ha. You're in prison." Jinx- "I hate you.")

#2) Let's Get Serious!- originally, this would've been #1 since it didn't have any other competition, but I seem to be in the minority as tons and tons of people say this episode is the worst of them all including Joey Tadesco and PieGuyRulez. Ordinarily, I'd go on to talk about how awesome this episode is, but I did an Admirable card on it which explains why I like it so much. Now, if I did an Admirable Animation card on this episode, and I've said this is the best episode of the series (which isn't saying saying much but still), why isn't it #1? Here's why.

#1) Cool School- If every episode was this clever, this funny, this great, and this fun to watch, those promos calling TTG "Your new favorite show" would be a lot more accurate and a ton less offensive. No joke, this episode is almost as funny as an episode of Gumball. Rose Wilson is absolutely awesome, funny, and a great compliment to Raven. The pacing is well done, and most of the jokes work pretty well. Plus, I think it's funny how Rose beat the Titans by literally weaponizing her own bitchiness ("Guys, quick, count to ten without using your fingers." "Thigh-high boots and a mid-driff? Are you a superhero or a cheerleader?") but then gets defeated by the Titans using their sincerity and friendship with Raven to defeat Rose the same way; that's both really clever and hilarious! The absolute best part, without a doubt, is Raven and Rose driving Robin absolutely nuts by insisting Rose is in jail. Writers of Teen Titans Go!, whatever you did for this episode, keep doing it! A whole season's worth of these should patch the damage...or at least avert our attention from it.

Well, there you go; next time, my top 45 Worst Episodes of...no, just kidding; I'm not doing another list like this.

Ultraverse Character- Loki by Psyko6669
Ultraverse Character- Loki
Just as an example of how one of these should look, I made Loki (The movies? The comics? Doesn't matter) as an example using the rules of the game.
Name: Loki
Alignment: Lawful Evil
Age: 2200 (I kinda just estimated, since he's immortal and all I don't think it matters to get the exact number)
Sex: Male (the stat differences I said before are applied in-game)
Race: Frost Giant/Norseman (since he's a hybrid, his base stats shown below are distributed as a mix of both races--as in, Race X has a Charisma of 1 and Race Y has a Charisma of 10, then Race Z would have a Charisma of 5; if Race X and Race Y have the same stat, then that stat carries over to Race Z as well)
Subclass: Elder God
Class: Magician (since Magician's magic focuses on summons, illusions, etc., I figured it would fit perfectly)

The base stats listed are what any character would have for base stats by using the same Hybrid combination (before adding any points; ignore the level, Loki had to be Level 40 before he could begin the Divine questline, which would explain the high level in conjunction with how long it takes to progress through the skill tree) before adding the skill points. Though, taking that into account, here's what I assume that'd look like. In the order listed: 7, 10, 9, 8, 7, 4 (seeing as how two points were taken out from Strength and distributed to Wisdom and Dexterity for balance, most of the initial 5 points are put towards buffing Intelligence for magic and Charisma).

Ultraverse Character Creator by Psyko6669
Ultraverse Character Creator
Just to give you a hint about how the Player Character Creation will work in my RPG Ultraverse Expanded, I've decided to post the Character Creation sheet for everyone. This Character Sheet is universal across all settings, allowing anyone to use this however you want (so long as credit directs to me). Here's how to use it:
1- Fill out your character's name (this is the least necessary thing, and you can call yourself whatever; you can be Ernest the Troll or Mike the Centaur, it really doesn't matter).

2- Decide your characters' STARTING Alignment (this one has a much bigger impact, as it determines how your character would think and act, and can shift according to your actions; i.e. good people can turn evil and vice versa). The alignments available are: Lawful Good, Neutral Good, Chaotic Good (the Good and Evil morality is what matters but Lawful or Chaotic is up to either players' actions/preference), Lawful Neutral, True Neutral, Chaotic Neutral, Lawful Evil, Neutral Evil, Chaotic Evil, and Orange (this is a complete abandonment of conventional morality, allowing you to leave yourself you your own devices). Fun fact: your morality is less likely to be shifted to undesirable locations when playing as an Anti-hero/Anti-villain.

3- Setting your Age (your character can be any age between 6 and 6000, depending on your race's lifespan; this can affect you quite a bit, as older characters tend to be stronger and wiser and younger characters tend to be faster and more charismatic--given how adorable they are). The age groups are as follows--also listing human equivalent ages for reference: Child (10 or less), Teenager (11 or 12-16), Youth (17-21), Adult (22-35), Middle-Aged (36-49), Elder (50-65), Old (66-80), Decrepit (81-99), Immortal (100 or more). Please keep in mind the human ages listed represent physical appearance and may apply differently depending on races through a number of factors.

4- Selecting a character's Sex (this is not the same as the gender your character may or may not identify as, and doesn't factor in sexual orientation or lack thereof). The general rule is that selecting a Male character gives +1.5 to their base Strength and Constitution stats at the cost of -0.5 from their base Dexterity, and a Female character gives +1.5 to their base Intelligence and Dexterity at the cost of -0.5 from their base Constitution. This doesn't account for Race or Age. However, only characters above their equivalent of 22 can get married and characters above age 15 can receive augmentations (physical things tattoos, piercings, and so on or full-on cybergear and mechanical body parts, weapons, and upgrades in the Cyberpunk setting for example)

5- Selecting your Playable Race (Each Race has it's own pros and cons, and this will most likely be the biggest deciding factor of your character; also to keep in mind is that all playable Races can, theoretically, create a hybrid that mixes their base stats and when playing a hybrid both races must be listed: i.e. Minotaur/Orc, Centaur/Harpy, Frost Giant/Fairy, etc.). Unique/unlisted Playable races not found in the Character Guide here (docs.google.com/document/d/1QM…) are also encouraged but you'll need to calculate their base stats--as long as they aren't too weak/strong, it can be made available.

6- Subclasses (this is only if applicable, and not required, but it does add interesting benefits, along with a few weaknesses to balance them out). In case you're curious, these are the Subclasses so far: Lycanthrope, Vampire, Werebeast (comes in several variants including Rat, Bear, Tiger, Bat, Lion, and Horse just to name a few, but will overwrite Lycanthropy and cannot be stacked with other classes), Corrupted, Divine (only for Players Level 40+; also called Seraph or Prince for Angels and Demons respectively), Undead, Shadow Walker (augmented by Corruption), Silent Agent (Doesn't stack with Shadow Walker), Dream-Walker, and Ghost (cannot stack with Undead). Don't stack your character up with everything, don't stack conflicting or unstackable Sublcasses, and keep in mind that each subclass also stacks its weaknesses, even if they might contradict each other.

7- Selecting your Class (this one is equally as important as Race, and will define your character the most: what weapons they're best with, what armor will help/hinder their combat style, how well they can use magic, and how fast they can attack; some classes are better with magic, some are better with combat, and some have their own uses/battle techniques and--like Races--any playable Class not listed in the aforementioned character guide can be added so long as they're equal). The biggest draw to this is that a Player's class and race will always compliment each other (Troll Wizard, Fairy Barbarian, Djinn Shepard, etc.) so there's no straw men saying "Orcs can't be Wizards" or "How can a Dryad be a Death Knight?" For added fun, try mixing and matching Moralities,Races, and Classes for things like a Lawful Good Satyr Warlock or a Chaotic Evil Gnome Paladin. It could create some really fun story potential.

Lastly, we move onto the base stats: Strength (how hard you can throw a punch and adds a little extra behind your weapons), Intelligence (your mental fortitude, and has a chance to add +1.5% to your magic to make it more useful), Charisma (for talking your way into/out of things, such as conning guards, getting information, or getting yourself out of a fight), Constitution (how hard hard you can take a punch; this also affects your HP by adding 5 points for every point you have here), Wisdom (your sense of Perception, and can augment your accuracy with bows and ranged weapons), and Dexterity (how quick you are and how fast you attack). Keep in mind, no one stat can be above 10 or below 1 and when creating a character you have 5 skill points to distribute wherever you prefer.
As for the Albino checkbox, Albinism can apply to any race (even if it's exceptionally rare) and--aside from giving your character a unique appearance, it also lets you distribute 7 skill points instead of 5 and 2 skill points instead of 1 every 5 levels (max. 70, or up to 100 with potential DLC). 

For further Information, please consult the Character Compendium, gives a complete list of all the Playable Races and Classes available so far: docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d… frequent updates as they come)    A few last things: be realistic (don't just give yourself a Prestige Class at, like, Level 10 or select the Traveller Class from the beginning which is impossible), don't be afraid to really go out there (don't just make an endless stream of True Neutral Human Warriors; get creative! Ask yourself things like "What if a High Elf princess ran away with a Troll Shepard, and their son/daughter became a Lawful Evil Berzerker?" or "What if my female Orc ran away from her tribe to become a Cleric, despite everyone else hating her for it and being turned away by several monasteries because of her Chaotic Evil past?"), and, even more importantly, you can use up to three of these character sheets to create yourself an entire party of characters and flesh them out (like a haggardly disgraced Paladin woman leading two young Troll twins to find their lost mother, or a Choatic Evil Minotaur and his Gargoyle slave meet a Neutral Good Fairy who the Minotaur falls in love with, much to the anger of his servant).

Ultraverse Expanded is owned by me, as is this template. Even though anyone and everyone are allowed to use this to create their own characters, credit for said character creation sheet remains exclusively with me alone.

I wasn't wrong about Teen Titans Go! being the worst thing ever, Cartoon Network or otherwise, but I was wrong about its latest episode Cool School. This is one of the funniest episodes ever and really pisses me off! Where was THIS episode when we had Smile Bones, Money Grandma, Waffles, Serious Business, Uncle Jokes, Multiple Trick Pony, and GOD KNOWS what else?!?!?! I didn't know it was possible to top Let's Get Serious! but if they make more episodes like Cool School they just might break even  
Who's That Pokemon? by Psyko6669
Who's That Pokemon?
Seriously, this has bugged me for years and I have no idea who that Pokemon is or who that chick is. I've seen this on the cover of this Red/Bue/Yellow Pokemon guide I bought at a bookstore a long time ago and I've never figured it out. If anyone else knows, please lease a comment.
