Mewtwo?
You got it.

I wasn't expecting this one to be nearly as hard as it ended up being.
Who? I think you're overestimating the % of gamers out there. Maybe it's my age, but I seriously doubt you'll get 50% recognition out there. Anyway....
Well done SenatorNyxon!

Maybe I'm just underestimating the age demographic here. I'd think a lot of people under the age of 30 would recognize probably the most well known legendary Pokemon, but I could definitely see it getting past people outside that age group.

If we want to be nitpicky, one can definitely argue most of the last few characters don't qualify under the 50% metric.

I think Lois Lane is pretty well known.

Same here. I am not complaining @Saw725. Since I am 49, I definitely fall outside your age category. 😁
I don't mind a bit more obscure subjects, gives everyone a chance.

Yeah I agree there. It's more the historical characters that I'd think aren't as well known. It makes for a hard game though, which I do somewhat appreciate.

Woo! I don't think I've thought of Pokemon as scifi, but when you qualified that as ambiguous along with the other hints then it seemed to fit. Assist to Jamiet on the medium.
