U4. Favorite User Design
U4. Favorite User Design
This award recognizes a User who has developed a community persona that really clicks with the rest of the community. The nominations have been selected for their unique style, depth, impact, design, and other cool things.
She is a Dragon-Koopa, an unofficial name for the species also including Bowser, with red eyes and blue hair.
The design is based on her OC, Bowselta, the wife of Bowser in her fanfics.
Known mostly by his original character "Fenrir Mildred Edo", a purple ice dragon mutt with green hair.
Edo changes his character appearance based on various media he finds interest in at the time, with each one taking on a creative and unique personality and style.
His favorite flavor of tea is rooibos vanilla.
Puddin is a Magikoopa with red robes, brown hair, square glasses, and a blue cape, but has a new color palette with a purple robe, a green cape, and green shoes.
He really likes toucans, and is often surrounded by them.
Lives in The Macadamia Realm, a place created by him as the setting for several comics.
His design is based on Orbinauts, sea urchin-like badniks from the Sonic the Hedgehog series.
Rather than spiked balls, ABXY buttons hover around his main body.
He appears in many comics, and is also the creator of several popular ones like Uniju Holiday Theater.
Dippy is a cyan Pikachu carrying a blue electric guitar, with a more recent design being worked on.
This newer design, which she calls “outback Dippy”, is still a cyan Pikachu, but instead has an akubra, rifle, and backpack.
Her backstory includes being abandoned as a toddler, raised in the way of the Crocodile gods, and taught how to use weaponry.
Toadbert resembles Luigi with shades, an open business suit, and a loose tie, presumably to show just how serious he is about absolutely everything ever.
Being quite well at drawing expressions, Toadbert draws comics depicting his everyday adventures, from Oregon Trail to grocery shopping.
Founding member of The Silly hats Club.
Despite being named after a Bob-omb from Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door, he more closely resembles Luigi / Mr. L.
Because he is a User who has been around for many years, he is featured in many classic Userpedia fictions.
Groden is an insane pigman and that pretty much sums up everything.
Being a very active member and admin on the Marioboards, his design pops up in all sorts of scenarios.
Originally a Bowser that was half-grayscale, he is now fully gray with red eyes which totally looks more hardcore totally.
This design, which he refers to as his Dark Bowser form, has some variations in appearance, particularly with the eyebrows, which is probably because of something evil maybe. Eyebrows are weird.
Allegedly over 40,000 years old, he has a boisterous, violent, and larger-than-life personality which some pass off as “cute”.
Despite his name, MCD is a regular Cyndaquil with a posh monocle and top hat.
Because he is a demon who can hypnotize anyone upon eye contact, his eyes remain shut until necessary.
He is Edo’s hat.
Anton is a redheaded magikoopa wearing white mage robes, specializing in hypnosis (totally isn’t a Psycho Kamek rip-off wearing a wig, really, totally), advice, tentacles, and style, with a tendency to alternate between stern & serious and quacky & wacky.
Aside from headling the Dear Anton advice column in The ‘Shroom, where his appearance changes with the theme of a featured question, he has been featured in many contemporary comics and fiction in the community.
Guildmaster of Team Chex Mix, leading his close friends on grand adventures of doing pretty much nothing but silly nonsense.
A purple dragon with green hair, not to be confused with Mr. Edo; she was originally based off of Spyro.
She is constantly and unreasonably cheerful about stuff, especially Mafia games, dragons, and weird things.

Draw It, played over on Epic Mafia, is basically an online Pictionary.
