As Twitter user Sazanami Salami points out, Scorbunny looks like Blossom, Sobble look Bubbles and Grookey looks like Buttercup. This image has been liked over 39,000 times.

Sazanami Salami drew these Powerpuff images for comparison’s sake. They’re not exactly the same, but certain traits and colors in each of the Powerpuff characters line up with the new Starters’. An amusing coincidence, no doubt.

Here is how the characters stack up to official art.
