Purchasable cartoon effects (kinda like the Mask)

This is a series of animations. Some kick in automatically, others are emotes triggered by the player.

Auto:
Circle of Stars: For when you are knocked for a loop. The circle appears above your head. alternate, tweeting birds.
Anvil Fist, animation for a punch attack
Delayed Fall: Looks down, looks at camera, Holds up sign that says "Gravity." Falls, a small mushroom cloud of dust marks impact
Falling Anvil, animation for a ranged attck
Rain of anvils: for an area attack

Emote:
Wolf whistle: heads turns into a lecherous wolf, whistle follows.
AAOOGA! Eyes bug out, grow enormous, jaw drops to floor, face in utter shock
Hey Baby! Eyes bug out, tongue drops to floor, head turns to wolf, howls.
I'm in love: Heart leaps out of body, beats romantically, goes back

"Come up and see me sometime" followed by look over shoulder, and swinging hips.
"Oh Wolfie" Chorus girl like dance

Super Strong: Flexes arm, massive muscles appear
Super Fail: Flexes arm, arms droops pathetically.
Scream like girl
Quote, "You realize this means war..."

Invisible pocket, Pulls things out of invisible pocket, flowers, a skunk, an anvil, etc...

I like the ideas actually.

I like the ideas actually. They work particularly well in a game like Champions that has a hardcore dedication to Slapstick comedy.

I'm intrigued to see the "tone" of the game. I personally hope the game echoes the tone of WildStar. People kind of give "cupcake" a bad rap but it was a very effective marketing tool.

I'm not technically against that kind of "slapstick/cupcake" tone in some situations. I'm just wondering if this wouldn't just give every "griefer" the perfect set of tools to run around and annoy everyone with these kinds of emotes.

I realize there will be idiots regardless and nothing's going to stop the people who just want to run around and jump up-n-down in peoples' faces. Still if you give everyone a bunch of "Mask-like" emotes (a character I might add which was basically the epitome of annoyance by design) I'm just concerned it would overly-encourage the negative use of these things.

Maybe as long as we get a huge number of various emote/animation options they could maybe slide a few of these ideas into the mix. But I wouldn't want to see these types of emotes be effectively the only options for expression the game offers.
