Trouble in Paradise
The P-Factor is Piñata Island's very own talent show and beauty pageant. Four piñatas are assessed for style, beauty, quality, value and a whole host of other categories to decide which pinata has the P-Factor.
The winner of the P-Factor is decided by a panel of five judges. Each of the four contestants gets to choose one judge they want on the panel; the last judge is chosen randomly. Each judge has different likes and dislikes, so choosing a judge that will favor your piñata over the others is the key to winning the contest.
There are 35 total judges to choose from, some of them well-known faces around Piñata Island, others not so well-known. Note that in any given contest, some of the possible judges may be contestants instead, so you will not be able to choose them from the list.
The judges are listed below in the order they are displayed in-game.
|Name||Judging Criteria||Judge's Introduction|
|Leafos||Prefers lower level (or lower value) piñatas.||Hello there. After all the time I spent drawing and writing about Piñatas for the journal, I have the fondest memories of my first scribbles of those common little Piñatas.|
|Storkos||Prefers pinatas that can fly.||???|
|Sprinkling||Prefers pinatas that can swim.||Water is so much fun to play in! I'm always jealous of those lucky Piñatas who get to swim around in it all day.|
|Seedos||Prefers pinatas that have walked (or flown) a lot.||???|
|Bart||Prefers pinatas that are evolutions of other species.||???|
|Diggerling||???||Gmph. Those waterborne Piñatas and their fancy ponds and lakes are flooding my tunnels. You can't dig through water, now can you?|
|Ruffian Minion #3||Selects a judge at random out of all available judges and copies their preferences.||I never wrote my own essays at school - I always copied as many girls and boys as I could. Why leave it there? I'm going to copy a random judge from all available instead! Bwa ha ha!|
|Ruffian Minion #1||Copies the preferences of a judge that is sitting next to them.||???|
|Ruffian Minion #2||Selects a judge at random that is present during the round and copies their preferences.||???|
|Ruffian Minion #4||Prefers pinatas that can be tamed from sours.||???|
|Doc Patchingo||Prefers pinatas that have been sick several times.||???|
|Jardiniero||Prefers older pinatas.||Many, many years ago, I had the finest garden on Piñata island, and I wonder if any of these here Piñatas are old enough to have visited my famous horticultural paradise?|
|Dastardos||Prefers piñatas which have not been ill.||Oh my, oh my, fresh candy! Now, which of these have I not seen before? Even I get sick of hypochondriac Piñatas tempting me over and over again.|
|Arfur Stout||???||Arfur Stout here. Through my business I've known a lot of the local talent - so I know what I'm looking at. But I'll have none of them tricksters and show-offs, I tell thee.|
|Fannie Franker||Prefers piñatas who have not travelled many pinometers.||???|
|Gretchen Fetchum||Prefers higher-level pinatas.||Nothing better than a good ol' regaling of my most glorious hunts of the rarest Piñatas. If I were to see some high-level Piñatas here, it might rekindle some fond memories...|
|Langston||Prefers piñatas with high Candiosity.||???|
|Carrie Chewdini||Prefers piñatas that know both of their tricks.||???|
|Sahari||Prefers piñatas that can be found in the Dessert Desert.||Er. Hi. Bit cold in here, isn't it? Nowhere near as warm as my house in the desert. Boy, don't those Piñatas from the Piñarctic look odd? Wouldn't last a minute in my village with all that extra paper fur!|
|Sparcticus||Prefers piñatas that can be found in the Pinarctic.||Phew! Could somebody please open some windows? Should've come in my bathers if I knew it would be this warm! The clothes store in my village makes more chocolate coins than any other. Layers, you see. Layers are the key.|
|Maxime||Prefers large piñatas.||My costume is an XXL... even though I only take a small size! You only get respect on Piñata Island if you are big and tall and strong. Absolutely nothing to do with me being the smallest in my family...|
|Nana Urf||Prefers piñatas that are of a lower level/value.||???|
|Jeffe||Prefers piñatas with lower candiosity.||???|
|Eddie Lizard||Prefers variented pinatas.||I've always been fascinated by colors: the way the Jameleon camoflouges to suit his environment, the kaleidoscope of Flutterscotch, the sunset red of a Bonboon's behind. Variants are none too shabby either!|
|Bear A. Maracus||???||I ain't gettin' on no blimp. Bear A. Maracus don't like flyin'! You seen a Fizzlybear with wings?|
|Loather||Prefers piñatas that have romanced several times.||Hssss. Romancing, schmomancing. Nothing pleases us more than seeing Piñatas that have struggled to get through our mazes. Hssss.|
|Ivor Bargain||???||Through the power of Xbox LIVE Vision, I can see the show in my well. Why somebody would throw an Xbox 360 down here I don't know. Lucky I always carry a stagnant-water-to-240V transformer with me!|
