List Rules Vote up the strongest characters in the Looney Tuniverse.

While the Looney Tunes cartoon characters might seem colorful and cheery, they're all a bit evil. The strongest Looney Tunes characters barely even have to lift a finger (or feather) to stir up some serious mischief and mayhem. The Looney Tunes franchise is riddled with characters who constantly pull pranks, incite comical mayhem, and entangle each other in their slapstick antics for the sake of the audience's entertainment.

Getting attention from the trouble they cause is no problem for the most powerful Looney Tunes characters. From baby birds and frogs to overly romantic skunks and dual-wielding, arm-slinging humans, each Looney Tunes toon has their own special traits that make them as entertaining as they are powerful.
