Match the SKU Cast With Their Spirit Dinosaurs

When in the course of human events something as amazing as SKU is birthed it is up to we few, the lovers, the fans, and the rabid diehard members of a community like this to take things to a new level. During a conversation with none other than the legendary satyreyes it occurred to us that this ground had not been tread. We must take the opportunity to blaze a trail and begin the revolution! Whatever we decide upon shall be forever etched in stone (er, drawn on paper by a certain panda) and memorialized within these hallowed walls from now till the end of days, a reminder of what we were able to accomplish! SO WHO'S WITH ME!? The choice is yours, your only limits are your own imaginations. Looking forward to seeing what everyone thinks. emot-biggrin

Note: Most agreed upon selections will be the ones chosen unless a suggestion is just too absolutely adorable to pass up.

Re: Match the SKU Cast With Their Spirit Dinosaurs

So Anthy's job is to have a bunch of swords stuck through her, right?

Ankylosaur!  Anthylosaur?

Wakaba is a very ordinary dinosaur with no special features or talents except that she is obviously the best dinosaur.

Stegosaur!

Tsuwabuki is fond of lurking in high places and dropping things on those below him, and he is adorable.

Pterodactyl!

Finally, I think we can all agree that Saionji needs to be whatever Touga is except smaller and not quite as cool.

Re: Match the SKU Cast With Their Spirit Dinosaurs

Anthylosaur and Miptsurudactyl/Ptsuwabukidactyl are great.

I'm not sure about Wakaba, though. I can't really picture anything that fits her...Maybe a pachycephalosaurus, as their most prominent physical features are their heads?

I'm in agreement about the Saionji/Touga thing...Unless someone can sway me. There are a lot of great ideas posted on other threads about other things, so I guess we'll just see how this one plays out!

As far as Touga and Saionji, I suppose that works, Gio. As reasonable a suggestion as any.

Re: Match the SKU Cast With Their Spirit Dinosaurs

Nanami, Keiko, Aiko, and Yuuko are all allosauruses with Nanami being the alpha and most powerful. They are predators which occasionally engage in pack hunter behavior, but are just as likely to turn on each other.

Re: Match the SKU Cast With Their Spirit Dinosaurs

Do flying and sea reptiles count?

Keiko is an oviraptor. She's went for Touga like oviraptor stole other dinosaurs' eggs.

Utena is an ornithomimus if we just go by her athletic ability. They could run up to forty miles per hour.

Anthy is an igaunodon. She likes plants even more than most dinosaurs and on the rare occasions she attacks she has huge claws like thumbs for defense.

Wakaba is an archaeopteryx. She has the potential to be flashy but sexual dimorphism means her feathers wouldn't be as brightly variegated. emot-frown (Yeah, I know nobody knows what color their feathers were but most females of any species aren't as beautiful.)

Miki and Kozue are parasaurolophuses. Parasaurolophus's crest might have held part of a larger and smarter brain or it might have been hollow and used for one of the most distinctive mating calls among dinosaurs. Even after a male fought another male for a mate's attention she might tease him for weeks before mating and this certainly describes Kozue.

Tokiko is maiasaura or the good mother lizard.

Akio is elasmosaurus because he attacks his victims by surprise. He can wait in the murky water or use his long neck to grab an unsuspecting pterodactyl midair. Though in the end he probably falls victim to sharks as human Akio is a victim of his own coffin.

I can see that too.

I will also second the allosaurus pack.

I like this one.  Elasmosaurs could also look at the stars by gazing into the water, which is like a planetarium for dinosaurs, and it is easier to imagine an elasmosaur with a lavender mullet than most other dinosaurs.

Re: Match the SKU Cast With Their Spirit Dinosaurs

Mikage could be a Troodon: small, slender, nocturnal, had some of the largest known brains of any dinosaur group, relative to their body mass.

The raptor thing was based more on comedy than an actual scientific parallel.

Re: Match the SKU Cast With Their Spirit Dinosaurs

Hmmm I can't think of anything right now (except that Akio has to be the flashiest, fanciest, predatory dinosaur EVER) but I just had the mental image of a duelist T-rex that's fallen on its nose and cannot get up and is wiggling its tiny arms to try and get the sword that's fallen onto the ground....

It's a good thing we have theme songs for this "Spira Mirabilis Theatre" and "In the body of the Palaeozoic Era"....

Re: Match the SKU Cast With Their Spirit Dinosaurs

Do birds count as dinosaurs for the purposes of this exercise?  Because I'm totally seeing Juri as a whippoorwill and Shiori as a mockingbird.

That could easily be one of the Nanami episodes, with this happening to her. Or to Saionji. It would have been hilarious.

Since modern birds are essentially the remnants of dinosaurs, seems fine by me.

Also, poor T-rex... "I have a big head and little arms! Hrrrrrng!"

GREAT suggestions so far, btw!

Anthy is a Tortoise. Seemingly slow and useless. Retreats into shell when threatened. Wins by outliving everyone.

Re: Match the SKU Cast With Their Spirit Dinosaurs

Hey there. I just wanted to apologize for my prolonged absence. I got rather ill and was laid up for quite a while. In the process I ended up getting absorbed in another project. I do still intend on delivering on the promise of drawing up some pictures for the SKU cast's spirit dinosaurs, but I really can't say when. Hope you guys had fun playing along! As soon as I have some artwork I'll be sure to post it right here.

Re: Match the SKU Cast With Their Spirit Dinosaurs

Saionji is a Utahraptor.  He has a terrible temper and is more likely to attack someone rather than just bluff. T-Rex and Spinosaurus have mean reputations but Utahraptor was proven to be the fiercest dinosaur.
