Group Info

The thing that makes transformations great is how the same subject can be used many times and still stay fresh. Because of this, there are SO many times when you find many transformations into the same character, be it a popular Pokémon or a famous anime gal.

But what about those times when there's a character that would make amazing transformations, but you hardly see them? There are so many unfair reasons for it, whether they're under-known, unpopular, or just shoved under the rug in favor of the "better" or "fan-favorite" character of the same series.

So here at UnderusedTF, our job is to form a massive, organized collection of transformations into the most uncommon characters used in them, where they will be proudly displayed to whoever stumbles across the group. And hopefully, we can encourage more usage of the characters!

So thanks for checking the group out and we hope you enjoy your stay!

Important Information

What Qualifies as Underused?
The current tagline (______ TF: < 25 results) is kind of a misnomer. Twenty-five is not always the limit to how many transformations an underused subject could be in. However, the amount is a major factor, as well as how many transformations are art, not stories (or vice versa). As for multi-TFs, I would judge them by the least common subject. A multi-TF into a Pokémon common in stories and one uncommon in stories is acceptable.

Underused vs Uncommon
Uncommon simply means not common, and underused means not common enough. But while I won't deny the clear difference between both words, I choose not to let it play an impact on this group. While one artist may view a certain subject as underused and another as just uncommon, vice versa is just as frequent for others. For example, many would argue that an obscure character with little TF representation can be more justifiably underused than a Pokémon with equal representation, but in our context that opinion is completely subjective. After all, if a subject can make a good transformation and isn't used much, it's underused!

Group Rules/Policies
  1. Please keep the comments clean, it's a big mess that's hard to clean up.
  2. In each folder, stories will be arranged as such: Games (Smash Bros. style), Anime, Disney, Other Licenses
  3. I, CrazyNaut, have the final say in whether something is underused or not.
  4. Mature Content is allowed, but ONLY for literature. No visual privates allowed!
  5. No OCs, period. It's okay if they transform, but no transforming into them.
  6. Anthros of characters and animals do not count as characters, as they generally have too many opposing factors.
  7. NO PHOTOGRAPHY (unless literature)!
  8. An subject TFing into something else does not fall into the same category as TFing into the subject.
  9. Multi-Part Art TFs will be considered, but unlikely to be accepted.
  10. Multi-Part Literature TFs can also make the folders confusing, so only the parts with transformations will be included.
  11. To be qualified, we must be able to see/read the transformation itself, and not just the TF beginning and/or ending.

(Just ignore the date, this isn't supposed to be a gag)

Hello there, CrazyNaut here for a group update. Because I could use some assistance.

So, as a lot of you know, this group is heavily focused on organization and categorization. After initial submission into the Featured folder, which acts as a Newest Deviations folder, each work is copied to a second folder based on the character's frequency and then carefully placed into a position ordered as such:

Games (Smash Bros. style), Anime, Disney, Other Licenses

With that in mind, the company who owns each character is the factor that plays into each section, which is why, for example, the Mega Man characters are grouped beside the Street Fighter and Ace Attorney characters, because Capcom owns each franchise.

As Founder, I've been the only one doing any organization, and for the past year it's all worked out quite well. Everything is well-organized in an easy-to-understand manner in an order that makes sense.

Except for the anime sections.

Now… the problem is that I have almost no familiarity with anime. I can tell you a variety of anime that exist, but as far as knowledge that would help with this group the most I know is that Jump is maybe the most famous property for them. And even then, I've mostly been winging the organization, with next to no knowledge of where each should go or even how to find out.

So, with this lack of knowledge, I figured I'd find a member to take over this part!

So, whoever takes the job clearly needs a good liking and/or knowledge of anime and has a clear responsibility: he/she must assist in the organization. Once again, the company and famousness of each character are the two most important factors to consider, as shown by how I've organized the rest.

And your starting task? Organize what's already given in each folder. Not only will this fix what I've lazily put together, it'll also help me organize in the future!

From there on? I might need you again, so if I call upon you prepare to organize once more.

So, if you're an anime fan and you think you have what it takes, let me know and we'll work things out!

That's all for this update, and as always, stay smart, stay safe, and stay human!
Heyo! CrazyNaut here with the first group update since… what, June 12?

First thing's first: today, the wonderful artist :iconmatojeje: (seriously, check him out) just whipped up the much-needed group icon change I commissioned! I'm so glad to have the ugly text and shelves out the window for something that definitely fits better, I just didn't know what would fit better until it was whipped up! So, that's great.

In other news, the gallery has certainly expanded over the course of 8 months. I counted, and as of this journal we've reached 971 deviations, 29 away from four digits! It's really awesome to think that even if the group isn't exactly one of big events, it's still maintained a steady-enough dedication to garner this many deviations. In which case, I'll have to give a shoutout to :iconpalette-the-painter: for being so active in finding and suggesting so many deviations I'd miss otherwise, and all the other members and admins who've contributed this much!

So… I really don't have much else to say, other than that I'm confident in a steady and thriving future for the group. We're four months away from the one-year anniversary, and from there, who knows what the future holds?

So thanks for reading, joining, adding, and caring, and as always, stay smart, stay safe, and stay human!

Taiga Aisaka is so underused :( I want to see more guys turning into her :XD:

How come my request was denied?
I am sure it follows the rules, no?
Sure it is part of a series but it isn't a multipart since each caption is it's own story. Just that the recurring themes are the main characters.
CrazyNaut Featured By Owner Oct 30, 2016
Ah, my mistake then. Try submitting again.
YouGotBloodOnMySuit Featured By Owner Oct 30, 2016  Student Writer
No prob. I will. Perhaps I'll change the name of my story.
CrazyNaut Featured By Owner Oct 30, 2016
Your choice, take the time you need.
yarin1401 Featured By Owner Oct 24, 2016
do you take requests?
CrazyNaut Featured By Owner Oct 24, 2016
That's not what the group is for
SpongeBat1 Featured By Owner Oct 20, 2016
I'm beginning to think that Undertale no longer fits the description of "underused".
CrazyNaut Featured By Owner Oct 20, 2016
Depends on the character, really. I may end up moving some to the next folder.
YouGotBloodOnMySuit Featured By Owner Oct 16, 2016  Student Writer
How come my submissions aren't being accepted/declined yet? 
CrazyNaut Featured By Owner Oct 17, 2016
Actually, I have a rule against multi-parts. They're a pain to organize, and they can get confusing when organized like that, especially since generally only one part actually has a transformation in it.
YouGotBloodOnMySuit Featured By Owner Oct 17, 2016  Student Writer
Ah I understand, then.
Frisky-radiation Featured By Owner Oct 7, 2016  Hobbyist Writer
Do I have to ask before I submit something for the group or do I just submit it and you judge it later? Sorry I'm sorta new to groups ^^;
CrazyNaut Featured By Owner Oct 7, 2016
It's fine. And yeah, feel free to submit, I'll be the gatekeeper.
timmichangas Featured By Owner Sep 8, 2016  Hobbyist Writer
Thanks for including my story here :D now you got me feeling all warm and fuzzy.
CrazyNaut Featured By Owner Sep 9, 2016
Ah, you're quite welcome there!
timmichangas Featured By Owner Sep 9, 2016  Hobbyist Writer
I'm doing a little competition. Mind if I add that journal to the group?
CrazyNaut Featured By Owner Sep 9, 2016
I'd rather you not… it isn't really group material here.

I wonder, does this story count as a TF for this group? It doesn't call itself TF. It calls itself 'Plugsuit fetishism' but it does have a transformation nonetheless. And uses a semi underused character. Asuka from Evangelion.…

Do note... It is on the more, R18 side of things. However it is literature.
CrazyNaut Featured By Owner Jul 27, 2016
That'd be fine, I suppose.
YouGotBloodOnMySuit Featured By Owner Jul 27, 2016  Student Writer
Neat. Well feel free to add it.

The original writer was very interesting. Shame that he 'left' the Internet and whatever works he has left are scarce/mostly gone. Hopefully someday he may come back...
TrollSkyDoesMinecraf Featured By Owner Jul 21, 2016  Hobbyist Artist
Hey, is it at all possible to have a few of my caps in here? It's perfectly okay if not, but I think I have a few caps that no one else have done before.:) (Smile) 
CrazyNaut Featured By Owner Jul 22, 2016
Ah, sure thing! Don't hesitate to submit anything, I'll happily judge it!
br4ndonm4rio Featured By Owner Jul 13, 2016  Hobbyist General Artist
Could I request a bit of art from my page?
