Post Anagram Game

Just a little forum game that could easily keep minds occupied when things like Terraria would be more likely to get in the way of shooting musicals 😉 ...

Basically, rules are as follows:

Player 1 comes up with an angram of a fictional character (we can change the subject later if we think we've run out of ideas).

Player 2 answers with the name of the anagramised character, then presents their own, and so on and so forth...

As regards creating anagrams I'd say that the whole of the name can be anagramised together, rather than the constituent words, so you'd be a creating an anagram of, for example, Harry Potter, rather than an anagram of Harry, then an anagram of Potter. Also, to the same end, making certain that the anagram has the same punctuation as the original is completely unnecessary (and makes it easier for James to work out when somebody has used Spider-Man as their anagram 😀 )

Characters may be repeated, but try to use different anagrams for them.

Quick example before we get things underway:

Player zero: Okay, here's my anagram- Mad Sniper

Player one: Dunno why I didn't get that one earlier, that'll be Spider-Man.
I'll follow that with this one- Bean

For the purposes of getting this started, I'll use player one's anagram.

So who would I be referring to as "Bean"?

Edit: @V Bane is correct.

Edit with pre-emptive rule clarification: Accents attached to letters need not appear in the anagramised form.

Then that would be "Bane" Unless it was a trick question and a random rearranging of the letters brought them back in the same order then I have a different answer.

Assuming that's correct, how about:

Am I V?
Is anyone else trying this?
Do I need to give a hint?

@^: Yes, you were V at the time... I can't speak for anyone else, but I'm pretty much stumped on that one.

Indeed, I should have put a rule in the first post barring the use of the internet (or computers in general) to solve anagrams... though obviously that one can't be readily enforced.

OK Big Hint: Letters 2-6 make up the second word. (Not counting the space.)

I'm pretty sure this is one I'm not familiar with, but based on your hint, I'll guess at Speed Racer

(alternatively, Deeps Carer also fits your hint 😛 )

@MP - You're right! I figured people had to at least have HEARD of Speed Racer since it was also a 2008 (horrible) movie!

@errol - That was like a freebie for we who actually know something about the origin of all these genres! All these little kids, like ManPans, will put us to shame.. *shakes head*
