So what's the big craze with calling the characters "kits" and "toons"?

Kits caught on because BW used it for whatever reason.

Toon is just used by one guy who is completely insane and thinks people call their characters toons.

I might be wrong, but Battlefield 3 used the term kit, right? I think it might just be EA trying to carry that concept over to ME.

It's British terminology, meaning gear, equipment, and/or weapons. So apply used.

"Kit" is used the menus. I don't get why anyone questions its use.
I order you to cease any and all supernatural activity and return forthwith to your place of origin, or to the nearest convenient parallel dimension.

"Kit" is as good as anything. I personally call them just "characters" or "classes." Or just "lil dudes." I've never liked the look or sound of calling player characters "toons" though, dunno what it is about the word exactly.

I hate the term "toons". The first thing that pops into mind when I hear that is Bugs Bunny or something >_>
