    I haven't messed with this in over a year, but last time I did it got Bartimaeus, who is a snarky demon without a true physical form. I had to answer nearly every question with a negative or "I don't know", and he still got it.

    lol

    That was the best I could come up with from my childhood.

    Yes!

    ...

    In its defense, that's a pretty good question to ask if your character's from an anime, as sometimes the Japanese portray the Chinese as having pencil-thin closed eyes, and other times do not.

    I found it had trouble with Megaman bosses, though, probably since there are 80 or so from Classic alone with nearly identical descriptions.

    Hmmm; Akinator failed to guess Bhima from the Mahabharata even after 40 questions.

    [Edit: Got Themistocles, though, after three tries. It was looking pretty grim there for a while.]

    [Edit 2: Oh shit, son. He got Captain Dathon, of "Darmok" fame in ST:TNG. I didn't even know that guy was given a name; I was just going for "Tamarian Captain".]

    [One last edit: I just got Kirk'd by the Akinator. I was trying to play Robert Oppenheimer and he asked if my character "had killed humans". Ten minutes later I'm still not sure how to answer.]

    He didn't get Lenneth Valkyrie. He guessed some Touhou character at 20, then asked if the character used a bow. I clicked yes and the site just stopped responding.

    So, if we're ever attacked by sentient robots, call in the Valkyries, I guess.

    Man, I thought Croaker from the black company would have been way too hard to get in 20 questions.

    Nope! He never even asked "is your character a doctor" or anything.

    The only problem, and it's unavoidable, is when people give incorrect information, whether it's accidental or intentional.

    For example, according to the people who have used this site, Ellen Page is American. Or apparently, Thomas Lang, an Austrian session drummer, was in Lord of the Rings (he wasn't).

    This is why it at Yuri from Infinite Space. The plot spans too much in the characters life and too much weird stuff for definite yes or no answers on a lot of the questions it asks.

    I was trying for Detective Jack Sprat from the Nursery Crimes series and I seemed to have it beat. I was surprised when it threw Dirk Gently at me. I mean, the series are so themeaticly linked!

    It did have Jack Spratt in the list of corrections at the end, but that one was referring to the nursery rhyme. Jack Sprat is a Detective who is ALSO a nursery rhyme.
