This oughta be fun...

Dur-hur-hur, I posted this to the wrong journal...

What is the WORST possible insult you can think of for each character in Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Monsters?

I won't name each and every character, but try and hit at least these: Yuugi, Yami no Yuugi, Pharaoh Atem (have some fun with the fact that a modern day insult is nothing like an Ancient Egyptian insult), Jounouchi, Mai, Anzu, Honda, Otogi, Kaiba, Pegasus, Haga, Dinosaur Ryuuzaki, Malik, Yami Malik, Bakura, Yami no Bakura, Thief King Bakura, etc. etc.

Imagine this coming from two perspectives:
(1) Another character in the show, e.g. Kaiba calling Jounouchi "mediocre" is pretty insulting coming from Kaiba and directed toward Jounouchi. Anzu saying the same thing about Jounouchi probably wouldn't have the same effect, so if she really, really wanted to insult him, she'd say something different. What would it be? What would Kaiba say if he were trying to insult Honda, instead? He probably wouldn't call Honda mediocre, though.

(2) Just in general, e.g. from a complete stranger. Imagine everyone goes to some random duelist competition and a nameless competitor insults EACH AND EVERY ONE OF THEM! Even the dead ones! What does said nameless stranger say to peeve everyone off so royally? (Keep in mind that even the worst possible insults directed to each character would produce different reactions-- not all of them will suck out souls, challenge the speaker to a duel, or punch them in the gut. And I'm sure at least SOME of your "creative insults" have a grain of truth in them, which is always fun!)

And my not-so-secret motivation behind this: what do you think each of the characters' "tipping points" are? What would be the defining difference from a stupid insult they might hear everyday to an insult that's got REAL STING, either coming from a friend, rival, or stranger? I'd like to find out for a fic I'm writing, but I won't mention which characters or which scenario (friend or stranger) I'm looking for. So go hog-wild!

...I also realize this has potential to deviate into the goofy, like a complete stranger might piss off Bakura by calling him Bat-head. But I don't think that's the WORST POSSIBLE THING a complete stranger (who, for the sake of this "questionnaire" knows everything there is to know about Bakura/any of the other characters) could say to him (or her).
