Just a question I thought I'd put out there! We all know which character from the TV series is the least popular (yes, he's an option in this poll anyway, deal with it), so why not see who ends up being the most popular (or if "popular" is too strong a word, then "least disliked")? Think on it, then throw somebody your vote! This should be kind of interesting.

 :thinking (Ruby isn't listed because she's a recurring character in the series. Plus, I'm already aware there's a good-sized amount of people who like her, and I didn't want to make the choice too easy for you guys!)

Yeah, I voted for Rhett.

His voice is something that just sticks with me.

Swooper is my vote. He feels the least shoehorned and I like the role his poor eyesight gives to the climax of the episode.

Hidden Runner is a close runner-up. The troodons really become a force to be reckoned with in Rhombus' Seven Hunters fic continuity. :rainbowwave
Would it be possible for swimmers and flyers to get more love around here? Both figuratively… and literally.

He really was better than the rest from the list?

I guess this voting is serious-toned, so make your vote with wise. :P
-------

Actually, all of these characters had something in them I liked, but I voted for Saro.
 Igenerally liked general atmosphere of this episode, Saro's voice, his storytelling and part of personality when he doesn't try to take old longneck away from his wife and grandson...
Keeps writing "sharptotoh" instead of "sharptooth" since 2015.

I confess, I voted for Rhett.   :rhett_brag

I had the feeling someone would choose him... :rhett_smile

@OwlsCantRead Same characters I ended up deciding between. Swooper ultimately got my vote as well. As you said, he actually brought something to the plot of the episode, whereas a lot of the other one-offs just happened to be there. I liked his good-natured but somewhat scatterbrained personality, too.

Hidden Runner always stuck out to me for having a cool character design, plus that neat screech he does. As for the Seven Hunters fics, I admit I've never read them, though I've known about them for a while. I'm just not much of a "dark fic" person, I guess. I will say, though, that Rhombus's well-written posts on the forum alone give me no doubts toward his writing abilities!

@Sneak Saro never stood out to me much for some reason that I can't exactly pinpoint. To give him some credit, though, I suppose his background with Grandpa Longneck does add more dimension to him than a lot of the other TV show characters.

Voting seriously for this, I went for Saro. The story speaker episode is one of my favourites and I liked the stories that him and Grandpa Longneck told as well as the relationship between them.

My vote goes to Swooper as well. He always had such nice things to say and in his own way was quite the merry companion.

@Gentle Sharptooth In "The Hermit of Black Rock," Swooper was the titular character, the old flyer Guido and Petrie met when they crash-landed in Black Rock. He had been able to survive in Black Rock for a long time by learning his way around the caves, but his blindness prevented him from leaving on his own, so until Guido and Petrie showed up, he was leading a happy hermit's life, making friends with rocks and stuff. :lol Eventually, he, Guido, and Petrie had to team up to fly back to the Great Valley. Looks like his friendly/quirky character and contribution to the episode's plot make him the TV show fan-favorite, because he's outpacing everyone else in this poll by quite a bit! I suspected that he'd be one of the more popular choices, but I didn't know it'd be by that much. Three cheers for Swooper! :DD


I did notice someone voted for Dara, Doc's girlfriend, and I like that. We may not have gotten to see enough of her for her to be particularly interesting, but she was quickly willing to accept Chomper, and for that alone, I think she deserves a point! :chompysmile

Can I also say I'm happy to see that all the TV characters I hated most have no votes as of right now? I knew you insufferable non-reptiles were annoying!! :bestsharptooth I knew it all along!!! [insert triumphant maniacal laugh here!!!]

I only remember that she voiced for Rhett in the series because the character's voice is one that I remember.

I figured you would, being an E.G. Daily fan. Nothing wrong with that, anybody is free to vote for whoever they want! :yes

No prob, here's the YouTube link!

The word fan feels way much like the lengthened fanatic.

I just enjoy a lot of voice actors work from a lot of cartoons.
