    If Cindy is "PO" then the Mailman should be "PO".

    The Mailman's brother, The UPS Man by ShneekeyTheLost, might also be worth mentioning.

    Ok, I have found:

    Tauric Ubercharger by swanyusd

    The UberERcharger by Tempest Stormwind.

    I can't find Djinn_in_Tonic/Gideon_Gideonson's "Outcharging the UberERCharger", although he mentions a few details about it here.

    Another trick that still gets mentioned somewhat frequently, although Doc Roc kinda trumped it with his magic jar within a jar trick:

    The Psionic Sandwich by Tleilaxu Ghola.

    You're right about the mailman - it was intended for play. I've switched it.

    The UPS Man and Magic Jar trick don't have builds yet(even though the UPS Man is a good guide, and the Magic Jar trick is really cool), so I can't add them atm.

    The Psionic Sandwich is hilarious. I've added it with the two uberchargers.

    Eh, the UPS Man build looks almost identical to the Mailman build, since they use so many of the same tricks. Just switch Empower and Maximize with Fell Frighten and Fell Drain, and replace Enlarge Spell with Searing Spell. Replace Ocular Spell with Blistering Spell.

    Include the spells indicated in the OP. Done.

    It was more of a variant than an actual independent build, using Greater Arcane Fusion to squeeze out a bunch of 1st level spells that automatically dealt 1-2 damage (depending on supposed immunities) and a negative level. Basically, enervation spam. Oh, and it was also spamming fear effects from Fell Frighten, which stack, and it would quickly make an opponent Cowering, so even if he didn't go down, he will the following round.

    Team Solar was an actual game that got played so I don't think you can call that TO.

    But that "actual game" was The Grinder ... which might have been explicitly advertised as a campaign for using TO in. I don't know for sure; I wasn't following it at the time.

    Likewise, while the Cube was actually played, it was played in the Test of Spite, which I think was designed to test PO to the breaking point. The fact that the Cube was undefeated is probably a good sign it broke into TO territory.

    Unrelated note: Should we add a section for "Missing In Action" builds for:

    The Arseplomancer, which is like a more deadly version of the jumplomancer.

    Also, Tainted Scholar should probably be mentioned, as it is a famous way of easily breaking the game into teeny-tiny pieces.

    Tainted scholar (and its previous iterations; tainted sorcerer and maho tsukai) isn't a build, it's just an extremely unbalanced PrC.

    Well, the necropolitan taint stacking is a build, and pretty famous at that.

    Also, Mango Eldar's Clone Army is worth adding to the list.

    You should open a new thread for this, rather than necro'ing, but the short answer is that no TO builds are at all suitable for practical games, by definition.

    Thanks Endarire. I don't think I can add that to the list just yet, because a sortof informal criteria I have for "famous" is that someone other than the OP posts it here.

    That said, if an OP posts their build here and someone else seconds it, I'm willing to add it to the list.

    Tiny von BigMcLargeHuge is doable if you take Human Heritage at 1st level.

    And that conversation between JaronK and Lycanthromancer eventually led to this. Don't have a name for it, though. The Elder Evil Eliminator, maybe?

    I like this thread!

    If no hood then we dodged TML's ghost telekenesis builds. Phew.

    I looked around here and found these:
    Triple 9's (wizard, cleric, psion) by PlzBreakMyCampaign
    Max Rebuke HD by PlzBreakMyCampaign
    Max Sneak Attack by PlzBreakMyCampaign
    Max Eldritch Blast by PlzBreakMyCampaign
    Max HP (I don't like this one) by PlzBreakMyCampaign
    Max Skirmish by PlzBreakMyCampaign
    Charger Overkill (8 to 70 million damage?) by PlzBreakMyCampaign
    Max DMM Pools by PlzBreakMyCampaign
    Non-Epic Demilich by PlzBreakMyCampaign
    A Vampire PC that Doesn't Suck by PlzBreakMyCampaign (lol)
    The Ultimate Bear Build by PlzBreakMyCampaign (One last build to kill them all?)

    Matrix Monk by Soro_Lost

    Searches for "Stuff" and "Junk" and "builds" turned up:

    UltraShifter by Prime32 (TO)
    The Mindslayer by Prime32 (kill anything without wis-damage immunity and dream elementals)

    Death from Above by Maat Mons and sirpercival's Grapplemancer at the same link

    Can anyone find "The Anthropologist"? It was by Carnivore or maybe JaronK, I forgot. It used soothing voice and diplomancy to run around winning D&D by not fighting. The whole point was to ask questions. Hilarious
