I got sick. I am currently bedridden and posting this last minute author' note via my phone. I already have pages uploaded all through January however so no worries.
Lastly, this listing is based off multiple factors from actual skill, percieved toxicity as a player, and generally just how intimidating Bonnie or any of the others find them. It is also entirely arbitrary based on my as the author behind this comic's impressions.
Have a Happy New Years.
This actually feels pretty amusing, yet fitting, to me that THIS is the page I am closing the year out to. Those of you who are familiar with the numerous campaign webcomics out there may be familiar with those referenced within. For those who AREN'T so familiar (yeah right), and of course with these author's permissions, I will provide you with links to their comics.
Shelby Brady, Mac, Manny and 'Damien's Mother' are all characters belonging to the amazing Deadpan Sal and his comic, D&D Aangvanced!
Wallace, the player of Kakashi and Rock Lee in Naruto: Jutsu and Jinchuriki, belongs to the stupendous RandomRex6!
And lastly but certainly not least, belonging to the most senior comic here mentioned we have DM, Cory, and Luke. All three characters being from One Piece: Grand Line 3.5, by the astoundingly brilliant Dragontrainer!
All characters mentioned within were used with permission from the author's behind these comics, which I encourage you to read if you don't already.
Next comic will be Monday
This is a parody, and is not endorsed by Cartoon Network, or any of the wonderful people who produce the shows which air on it. This is purely for fun.
I'm impressed that Wallace got so high up on the list. Then again, Lee is kind of the picture of min-maxing...
Shelby? Sane? Doesn't she beat people's cars with baseball bats?
Bonnie is unaware of such, and as was mentioned 'moderately' sane.
D&D Aangvanced is the only one of those comics that I don't like. I'm not sure why.
Wait is Manny #3 or are we going to wait until tomorrow to hear about #3?
Manny is GM #3.
This list is interesting to me, mostly because it makes me think about how I view these characters. To me, Mac is probably one of the more toxic players/GMs except for Manny at his worst. I can't say for sure why she's worse than, say, DM, who has been shown to be run some nightmare/meat grinder game sessions, other than that Mac just seems to be kind of a jerk at times without being aware of it and doesn't try to change that.
A fair opinion, but from what I have seen, Mac, while a killer DM, doesn't feel as toxic or dangerous to me as those listed above. After all, the players 'rolled in harmony' before Manny took over, so she can't have been THAT bad.
You're probably right, it's just that right now Mac's the one that irks me the most as a player. There are a few reasons for this. One is some of the more recent comics show her focusing almost entirely on the numbers side while seemingly ignoring the roleplaying side. This on its own wouldn't bother me much (different players have different play styles, and s on) but with Mac it feels a bit, mean-spirited I guess (I'm not good with words and expressing myself). There have even been times where it seems like she ignores any problems she causes with other players through her actions, like with Manny during the arc with Blood-bending. This could just my perception (which I'm realizing might be a bit bias as I write this), or it could reflect the group more than the player.
No, it's not poorly stated or biased. That's a really solid breakdown on Mac. Well put!
DM definitely earns her rank among the players. Someone who goes out of their way to have their character backstab the rest of the group and then says, "Hey, there were plenty of signs I was gonna betray you, you just didn't do anything about it" has to be the definition of a toxic player.

I'm surprised Gordon isn't on either of the lists.
So the animes. Wouldn't be surprised if the top 1 rolled up Lord English.
