Team Liquid's Halloween Quiz
October 29 2019
It’s Halloween again and you know what that means! Trying to think up a damn costume. Sure, it was easy when you were 5 and could be a pumpkin or 8 and could be a superhero. But now you’re older and there are so many different choices and options.
Do I go high effort and interesting? Do I just buy a random sexy costume from Party City? Do I go for a low effort pun costume or an obscure character I like a lot? And, just like every other year, wearing a costume throws your entire identity in flux and the only way you can moor yourself in this uncertain world is by taking Facebook quizzes that tell you what gemstone or anime character you are.
Don’t you worry Team Liquid super fan! We’ve got you covered with a quiz that will simultaneously help you pick a costume and remind you of who you are by comparing you to another thing. Take our Halloween quiz to learn what pro you’re most like and what costume you should wear. Or don’t take our quiz and endure our terrible Halloween curse in which all your candy turns into healthy snacks and you show up as the only one in a costume to every Halloween party you go to.
Make sure to keep track of which answers you pick so you can tally your score at the end.

Doublelift - Congratulations, you got Doublelift! That’s right, you’re the best of the best and you know it. You want to see every player come to the competition with everything they’ve got so that when you beat them, the whole world will know you’re number 1. You’ve got a tendency to trash talk, but it’s not because you’re hot headed or rude. You’re savvier than you let on and building up your rep and the rep of your team while keeping the competition interesting. You’re serious, honest, and loyal but you’ve got a very playful side to you too. To embody Doublelift’s spirit you should be Sona! This flirty number works for men, women, or any gender as a cosplay or a crossplay. This is a costume that really says, “I’ll do anything to win” and “get the hell out of my lane, Sneaky!” If you’ve got a special someone, have them join you in a Taric costume! If you’re really like Doublelift, you’re gonna need them to get you of trouble!
Surgical Goblin - Congratulations, you got Surgical Goblin. You’re smart, outgoing, and multi-talented. You’re a real team player who sets up for yourself and your teammates. You value family, friends, and the good people in your life very heavily and make sure to show your appreciation often. People are naturally drawn to your affable nature and open demeanor, which helps you do well at the social parts of your job and life. In general, you’ve got a good head on your shoulders and very steady, down to earth attitude. You should dress up as a literal surgical goblin. What better way to identify with your chosen pro than by dressing up as his mascot? You’ll have one of the most unique and most spooky costumes of anyone and without a lot of prep! All it takes is a nice goblin mask and a surgeon’s coat. If you’re a real Halloween tryhard, you can go for the goggles and the purple juice.
xS3xycake - Congratulations, you got xS3xycake, and your costume is literally a sexy cake - but like with a gun and stuff. Let’s face it, you’re one of the most stylish players in and out of the game. You’ve got plays for days and don’t get afraid when the game comes down to the wire. While you are one of the best in an already stacked region, you’re not all about serious competition. You know how to joke around and have fun, even if it can be at the expense of a friend or teammate every now and then. Dependable, clutch, stylish, and fun, your ideal costume is literally a sexy cake but with a gun and also one of those cool Team Liquid Siege masks. “Where could I possibly find a sexy cake costume?” you ask, but this is 2019 and that means you can be a sexy anything on Halloween. Plus, we know you’ve got the attitude to rock it and give a whole new meaning to being a snack.
Dabuz - Congratulations, you got Dabuz. You’re super analytical and smart! You like to know your enemy so you can plan out the match and dominate every step of the way. When it comes to the game, you’re like the hangman’s noose, strangling out every opening your opponent could hope for and draining the life out of them with unstoppable neutral. But out of the game, you’re one of the friendliest guys in the room. You make a great impression to the people you meet and that’s because you’re considerate and kind in the real world, where it really matters. You’re a pretty big goofball, but that’s just part of your charm! To represent Dabuz, you should dress up as Olimar. This space captain comes from Dabuz’s favorite series and like Dabuz, while Olimar is light-hearted and kind in the lore, in the game he’s a demon that dismantles your game and destroys your lead after one opening.
PUBG Bros - Congratulations, you got Jembty and Sambty! You’re one of those people lucky enough to have family that truly understands you! You even like your family enough to work with them. But it’s not all about family, even if they helped you get to where you are. It’s also by the team that you work well with and your own intense, competitive drive. You want to win, even if that means you’ve gotta beat your friends or family. And with your talent, you win pretty often. Since we know you’ve got a friend or family member you can drag into this, we know your best costume is the dynamic duo from Hot Fuzz. What Samby and Jembty did for the gaming brother duo, Hot Fuzz did for the buddy cop. Inject new life into the gaming world, the movie world, or just the Halloween party down the street.
Nemo - Congratulations, you got Nemo. Listen, you’re one of the old guard, born to practice your craft - but that doesn’t mean you’re a dull traditionalist. You apply a wild and creative style to everything you do and it makes you both popular and feared. Your playstyle is as strong as your personality and you’re not afraid to really pop off and celebrate a big win or trash talk your rival. This Halloween, you should go as Urien, one of Street Fighter’s strongest villains. Urien’s dynamic Aegis Reflector helps Nemo stay creative in Street Fighter, while his headbutt loops keep the opponent on their toes. For you, a Urien costume will keep you looking sharp and powerful, just be sure you don’t get any Halloween candy on this one - that suitcoat doesn’t come cheap and you’re not gonna be trick or treating or going to a Halloween party wearing the alt skin!
John Takeuchi - Congratulations, you got John Takeuchi! Like John, you’re known for your warm and friendly personality as well as your rising skill. You might be new to your scene - so new that you play with a game pad - but you’ve been on the rise since day one. Each year you get better and better and take more games off of the old elite. Not only are you skilled in game, but you’re skilled out of it and have an artistic hobby you excel at. You also excel in social scenarios and value friendships heavily. Your Halloween costume is Myōe from Kyōsōgiga, the gregarious and kind monk whose art comes to life. You could also go as John’s main Rashid, but Myōe’s kind personality and hidden power might just fit your personality even better. And if you don’t know who this is because you haven’t watched Kyōsōgiga, then put down whatever moe/shounen garbage you’re looking at now and watch Kyōsōgiga instead.
Congratulations, Steve. - (Congratulatons, you got Steve! You dream big and work hard to make those dreams come true. But it’s not just about accomplishments! It’s about doing things the right way and being honest, kind, and fair to the people you work with. You’re not always the quickest to succeed, but you’re perseverance shines through, so people know they can depend on you. This Halloween you should go as yourself. Not everyone needs a costume and I mean, someone’s gotta hand out the candy right? )
EliGe - Congratulations, you got EliGe! You’re one of the best in a game loaded full of talent but you still stay humble. You tend to forge deep bonds with the people around you and like to stay loyal to the people you’ve known for a long time. Even though you’re a nice and serious figure in your community, you also get your fair share of memes and humor. You’re not the loudest person in the room but you’re one of the most respected and talented for sure. That’s because you’re thoughtful and you like to think of the best approaches to the game and to communication. Your Halloween costume is… okay… this is a weird one but bear with me: the Smiling Krieg Reaper. So, you want to get your standard grim reaper costume, then add a toy gun to it that roughly resembles the krieg, then print out the classic Elige smile and wear that over a surgical mask.
