Who's In & Who's Out

Difficulty: Very Hard!

This puzzle game requires you to use some Boolean algebra! Just so you know, a character can be a member of 2 or more sets. Of the character sets chosen for this puzzle, the names of the sets are facts about the characters:

  1. Characters that appear in this cartoon series: Blueworld Adventures/Blueworld & Beyond (because they're part of the cast!)
  2. Male characters (No females belong in this set!)
  3. Not 100% human (Part human, part something else, or not human at all!)

Sometimes, sets intersect as you can see in the image above, so if a character is a non-human male, then his name goes in the intersection of these 2 sets: "Male", "Not 100% human". But if he's not a member of the Blueworld Adventures cast, then his name doesn't belong inside the circle(set) named "In this cartoon series". What if the character is not a member of the Blueworld Adventures cast, female, and 100% human? Then her name belongs in the white area(outside all 3 of these sets).

Here is the list of 32 characters' names chosen randomly:

  1. Derek Cyannus Jr.
  2. Burger Meat Food
