What happens when everything goes topsy turvy? Explore when villains become heroes, up is down, black is white, roles reversed! What are the opposites and what happens when people swap roles, colours, clothes, genders?!

Read on for our winners and honorable mentions!


Ramen Bowl Attack!! by crownclown

It’s Naruto’s worst nightmare! No, not when he loses control of the Nine Tailed fox, but on his Opposite Day, his favourite food, ramen, has sprung to life and is going to eat HIM!  The hilarious concept here is so well expressed by crownclown’s offbeat artstyle, with squiggly – but contained – linework making for some discomfiting cartooning! A turnabout for Pokemaster Pikachu was also a good second entry here.

Second Place

Kaneda, The Later Years by Big Unit

Big Unit once again gave us a hard time choosing the best of his many excellent pieces. So many great ideas!  We liked his Opposite Day takes on DeathNote’s L, Goku in the kitchen, Astroboy and especially this saucy for the wrong reasons Ghost in the Shell piece, but this take on Kaneda from Akira, really took the cake. Experiencing a day as not a youth on a superfast motorcycle, but an old man on a motor scooter sure is a change of pace, but at least Kaneda has a smile on his face. Wonderfully on model with the clothes, colours, and even the stickers on the scooter.

BigUnit wins 2nd prize of a $100 Madman store voucher!


Third Place

Bebopposite by AJchan

It’s Bebopposite day!  A fantastic piece from AJChan goes into wonderful character by character detail as the whole crew of Cowboy Bebop become an inverted version of themselves.  Everyone but Jet seems to be enjoying it, too! What a strange bunch they’ve become. We’d love to see a new Bebop episode in this inverted universe!

Fourth Place

SG Starscream by Vron89

This is actually kind of sweet.  Taking the nasty, scheming Starscream and portraying him as he’d be if the Decepticons were good and Autobots bad, reveals a gentle, nature loving ‘con in touch with his feathered friends!
