Informal betting on strangest storm

I couldn't resist. What storm do you think will shred the rules of climatology the most? Please tell why it makes it more fun.

This section is just for fun. There will likely be no winner. Because of this, please do not cross out the names as they form, and please do not bet on a storm that has already formed. ; )

  • Andrea - Mentioned below in Humberto's section REAL GER (talk) 02:54, November 9, 2018 (UTC)

  • Humberto - Name: Humberto, Stand:「Scorpions」(named after the band who sings "Rock You Like A Hurricane".) Details: Teams up with Andrea and Lorenzo to become members of Bucciarati's team, all three have stands more powerful than The World, Star Platinum and GER which can combine (along with Giorno, Abbacchio, Narancia, Bruno, Fugo and Mista's stands) to produce a megacane (also powered up by Weather Report's stand) that demolishes the entire world right before Enrico Pucci can reset the universe in Florida. The only thing to ever exist during the universe transfer is the song "Freek'n You" by Jodeci playing softly on repeat in the background. To add, Humberto is the most powerful of the team and can take on forces stronger than the likes of Diavolo, and of course, DIO. REAL GER (talk) 16:51, January 11, 2019 (UTC)
  • Imelda - Splits into two hurricanes: I’m and Elda. I’m quickly dissipates, while Elda becomes a 220 mph fishspinner cat 5 with a pressure of 869 (just enough to beat Tip). When Hurricane Melissa comes and starts a Fujiwhara interaction, Elda suddenly and rapidly weakens to a 30 mph tropical depression and makes landfall over Panama. In the Pacific, Elda restrengthens and attains the exact same peak intensity, and holds it for a week. After a month and a half, it gets absorbed by typhoon Tip.Ȝeſtikl (talk) 08:49, September 5, 2019 (UTC)

If you want to be extremely specific, write down the names of the storms you think will do so.

Informal betting on number of off-season storms

How many storms do you think will exist off-season (counting November-December crossover storms)? If you want to be specific, write down the storm names that you think will exist off-season.
