Ground Rules

  • Signature move is defined as an action that is synonymous with a character or group of characters
  • Difference between a “signature move” vs a “transformation”. However if the move can only be used through a transformation then that would count
  • The ranking is not based on the most “popular” or the most “powerful” move but that will be taken into consideration. Rather, it’s the one that impacts this group the most (or the one we just think is cool AF)
