Keep sending us your Super Villains!

competition update

We are loving all your fantastic and creative fruit and vegetable super villain ideas!

We’ve had few questions about what you can and can’t send as ideas for the competition so here are some answers…

Please don’t write stories as this isn’t a story competition.
We just need a name and short description of what the character looks like. That description can also include a villain catchphrase, special skill, power or prop too.

Please don’t copy anyone else’s ideas, we want these villains to be original.

Remember your character needs to be a fruit or vegetable

A tip for naming your character
Create a rhyming name (e.g. Savage Cabbage) or a name that starts with the same letter as the fruit or vegetable (e.g. our heroes – Lighting Lime and Lethal Lemon).

Keep sending us your Super Villains! There are 10 more days (closing date 31 October).
Send it by email to villains@fruitycuties.com
