You know, sometimes I don't think we appreciate the CBUB fictional character database as much as we should. I was just scanning through it a few days ago, and I've never really realised how vast it is. There's like 22 pages for every category, and that number is growing everyday thanks to constant new additions.

And that got me thinking... Does CBUB have the biggest fictional character database ever? If not, have you ever visited a website with a bigger one? Just wondering.

Does the CBUB have the biggest character database ever? Nah, not even close.

Remember that electricferret's a relatively small website and the CBUB's database is generally "limited" to "who can beat who in a contest". The CBUB currently has maybe around 8.000 fictional characters (I'm sure Rob will go and do the math again to be sure. :P). Any decent-sized information website has info on many, many more than that. For example, at this point I'm sure Wikipedia has pages on millions of fictional characters.

:o Do you realize the consequences of what you've just done?! The DB may be wiped out, by a certain someone.

On another note, I wonder if that's what happened to Sam Fisher's profile...

Yeah I've been noticing that. :blink: Whenever I check the Recently Added characters list, it's just image after image of scantily clad anime chicks. :P It's died down as of late, though.

Don’t worry. I will be adding more hot anime girls to the database soon. :P

Yes, but Wikipedia doesn't have a page for every individual character.

Wikipedia still covers many times more TV shows, film, books, etc. than the CBUB, though, and a good portion of the characters from those mediums do have their own pages.
