For Storyboard Events these characters were created based on the four natural elements. They are personifications of the hardships contestants had to withstand in the planned ‘Elements Run‘, a crazy obstacle course that would test your limits (and those of friendship)!
Fire: the cruel tormentor!
Water: more powerful with every added drop!
Earth: the silent, unstoppable golem!
Wind: the mischievous trickster!
Take a look at some earlier sketches! As you can see the final characters were picked from different sets of designs – and one character started out being made of a different element! In the end, everyone involved felt the one wielding a whip was the strongest design, and the element of the wrestler was changed.
