As the title mentioned, it featured who I think is the protagonist being able to take command of a huge 'monster' or 'robot' (unsure of what type of thing it was that, if I recall correctly, was orange and transparent/see-through, seemingly made of energy. Might have had designs along its body of a different colour, white perhaps, but my memory is very hazy.

I can't be sure, but perhaps other characters could also take command of avatars of their own, they were all super huge, the size of small buildings I think. I don't even remember what shape this 'monster' would have had, whether it was humanoid or resembled an animal or something. This has haunted my memory for years.

    Was this an American cartoon? Was it broadcasted on the Cartoon Network, or another channel? Nov 23, 2018 at 19:06

    could it be Naruto?

  • @DeutschPirate it's hard to remember, I would imagine it was broadcast on Cartoon Network, but can't be sure. It also seemed contemporary, not like a show from the 90s or earlier. Baku, definitely not Naruto, I know of that show, but a good suggestion anyway. Thank you all. I will continue digging at my brain to try to remember more details.

Tye Longshadow

On Young Justice season 2 (2012-2013), Tye Longshadow controls a giant transparent orange astral form that he projects around his physical body:

Tye Longshadow and his astral form

This character is the equivalent of the Super Friends hero Apache Chief.

No other characters on Young Justice show this ability, and the astral body has no distinctive markings in a different colour, so this isn't a perfect match for the description you gave.

  • Thanks for the input, but I have the impression that in the show I'm thinking of, every character had some avatar like the one I described (albeit with different features).

I vaguely remember my daughter watching something that sounded like a possibility. It's was called Ushio to Tora.

  • Can you give us some more information as to why you think this is the right answer?

Larfleeze (Orange Lantern Corps)

In Green Lantern: The Animated Series (2012-2013) episode 1x23 ("Larfleeze"), the alien known as Larfleeze channels the power of avarice (greed and envy) to create orange energy effigies of himself and his victims.

Hal Jordan, a human member of the Green Lantern Corps, briefly wields the orange power.

Although Larfleeze is human-sized, his energy constructs can be much larger:

— A giant effigy of Larfleeze captures Hal Jordan.

The Orange Lantern Corps (of which Larfleeze is usually the sole member) has a logo (circular, with radial lines) that appears on their uniforms and on their constructs:


— Orange Lantern Corps logo on the shoulder of Larfleeze.

Glomulus effigy

— Logo on the chest of an orange energy construct.

  • Great suggestion, but not what I was thinking about.
