Cat Burglar Revenant Pixie Werebear Vampire.

My stupid blog on religion and life.

I wanna be the nicest guy on all of the CharOp forums.

I remember something about "how many bears can you put on the field at once?"

So, hmm

Ranger|Druid
Hybrid feat for a bear companion
Multiclass shaman for a bear spirit
Summon a bear from a druid power
Shapeshift into a bear

Now if only there was a way to get a bear familiar...
Too bad you don't get the Bardic versatility when you hybrid bard :/

Fey Beast Tamer? An Owlbear is kind of a Bear.

Traveler's Harlequin PP let's you take more MCs, now you can grab that circus bear familiar too. That open up any more Bear options?
Half-elf Artificer, Traveler's Harlequin, dilettante/Adept Dilettante a Vampire power, take a ton of MC feats and all the X Vampire feats, power-swap for Protective Scroll, and keep your party going forever. You didn't really need daily powers, right? For bonus points, take feats and items that get better with milestones. Get arcane powers naturally, divine powers from Harlequin, martial and primal from Iron Wolf Warrior, and psionic from a power-swap.

If you want to make it terrible, lose the Adept Dilettante trick, and just be a normal MC Vampire.
I never thought of Adept Dilettante + Vampire before. Has that been discussed elsewhere? I like this idea (maybe add Dead God Avatar ED for even more cool healing surge stuff).
I've seen people mention Adept Dilettante + Vampire as a way to get the Vampire keyword (such as it is) without damning your healing surge total to the depths, but I've never seen anyone else use it in combination with TH to generate way more surges than you need (nor combine that with Artificer and/or Protective Scroll to spread the love).
Cute trick. It's not bad for psionic half-elves (mainly Ardents and Battleminds) who can then also take the Psionic Vampire feat for easy access to more power points. Battleminds even get a decent MBA out of it (Vampire Slam), although they still need to get implement proficiency somehow.

Hm, if you can take more MCs, then there's the possibility of MC'ing sorcerer and swapping for that daily that splits you into four "minions". Although it would take a turn to wild-shape into a bear on each of them, (since you can't use an arcane power while shape-shifted, last I checked; which I could be wrong) you'd be looking at around 8 (You x4, Beast companion, Spirit companion, Familiar, Summon).

Hmm...
can you mount a bear?
Perhaps there's an item that's bear-related. Or something.

I was just thinking that you needed to have an entire mounted gnome party so that you can all ride into battle on the bear army.  Bonus points for having russian accents and speaking of the motherland.

For the undead build, don't forget to add the Ghost template from the most recent Dragon magazine.  Just how many types of undead can you be simultaneously?
MC or hybrid arcane for Archlich?
Speaking of being as many somethings as one can: I've been trying to figure out how to get the largest number of races on one character at the same time. The best I can come up with is Revenant Deva with the Soul of the World ED and 2 more races, but 4 seems like such a terribly small number. Also, for reasons that may or may not have something to do with a conversation between a Warforged and a Minotaur involving if one could be an entire patrol on one's own, the idea is to be a functional race (apply for feats etc.), so Soul of the World Half-Elf doesn't equal 2 more races instead of one, for my idea.
Here's another one: dead genasi, hybrid DW Monk|Warlock (TFP into Elemental), MC something divine, Morninglord, Radiant One. Firewind Blade, Shocking Flame, Crown of the Brilliant Sun. Use Monk powers as your standard actions, use Warlock powers as non-standard actions (Quickened Spellcasting, immediate powers, Eldritch Strike on AoOs and granted attacks). Use Elemental Pact to sling around fire vulnerability, use Morninglord to sling around radiant vulnerability, use Shocking Flame to ping both of them on both normal attacks and FoB, and use Radiant One to do it all over again. Attack + RO + FOB + RO = an easy four pings of two different vulnerabilities every turn, since RO is worded in such a fantastically stupid manner. Oh, and Firewind Blade will add an extra ping, which I think adds another ping of RO. So about six pings of two vulnerabilities on a normal standard action.

It's not as ridiculous as some of the other ones in this thread, but to me, it reads like a lineup of "Stupid CharOp Tricks, Greatest Hits Edition." Nothing new there, but I've personally never seen a build shoving all of them together before.

That's exactly the build i'm making right now, but i use Battlemind|Warlock, since it fits even better, due to better ability score spreading (Con/Int, means i get the full benefit of radiant one and i can abuse PElor's Boon). Since vulnerabilities, pelor's and Radiant One are Firewind Blade's best and only friends, this can only be topped if u choose a fey race as past soul and pick Sarifal Feywarden. 
That would be 55 (vul+radiant one+pelor's boon) + 6 = 61 dmg per Firewind Blade's property procc.
The downside would be, that it really starts kicking in at 21st lvl.
I'm pretty sure there's not much, that can top that char on 30, tho, besides zone abusing builds.

Edit: Oh and btw, Hybriding DW monk wont be legal at many tables, cause it's not RAW. 
One of the DMs at my local gaming store is a very big RP/fluff/Mechanically optimized characters have no place at my table kind of guy.  The post in the original build was made to troll him, and did.  Responses included "How did you start with 2 18s?", and "NONE of this triggered the houserule thing?" and "Vampires use Ki?!".  Another guy I play a thursday game with brought a bullywug assassin, RPs him like a Gungan, and refers to killing enemies as croaking them.  I'm pretty sure this guys head is going to explode soon.

As much as I like messing with people, asking to join a dude's game and bringing in characters with the express purpose in mind for trolling the guy's playing style seems like pretty bad form.

Unless the guy's all douchey about how he plays, then he probably deserves it. But from what you said it just sounds like he's a storyteller DM using the wrong system. 
Many faces, many sizes: Pixie race, Watershaper theme, Traveler's Harlequin PP. By level 12 you can look like any humanoid of medium, small or tiny size. Throw in a False Blood Amulet and a Hat of Disguise if you want to be able to change your origin and clothing to really sell the disguise. (Also potentially nice to have pixie flight while being a medium sized humanoid and therefore wielding a normal sized weapon.)

I've been having trouble pulling off the same thing with beasts of different sizes. Hengeyokai race or Tuathan theme would allow me to be a tiny animal, and Druid class would allow me to be a medium beast. How can I also be a small critter (and preferably not just once a day)? Anyone have any ideas?

Oh it was encounters, my friend asked me to come since the table wouldn't have made otherwise.  One of the DMs favorite characters is a gnoll battlemind who uses a whip, if that tells you anything.

So, a dude more interested in storytelling and interesting characters than game mechanics volunteers to run an Encounters table?

The grand masterpiece would have been when we got into the bandit hideout or whatever it was and I could take off my robe.  Being nonmagical cloth armor, it didnt matter anyhow.  I told him that due to my previous life as a pixie, I always had some residual pixie dust iin the air around me.  I let it sink in and watched the look of abject terror begin to form in his eyes and I said "Yes, I am the entire twilight saga (revenant pixie werewolf vampire), and I'm here to murder your bandits". If I can't op the character, I'm sure as hell going to op trolling potential.

What about doing both?  And being a Lazylord to boot (so you can keep your charisma shtick and "talk" your way through situations, or look like some other person while commanding your own allies to attack or enemies to attack/grant opportunity attacks to allies while the enemies are confused.)

You can change size, shape just as you wanted.  You can even change into a tiny beast through Wild Shape (too bad cannot change size).

Very nice! I'm surprised and impressed that you took the time to stat out a full build! 

It was originally my intention to do both, but not being able to do both Medium and Small beasts stopped me short. Still not sure how to achieve both without settling for forms which don't last indefinitely.

Sovereign Beast ED lets you become Large when you Wild Shape

Ah, I'd been digging around for different abilities that let you change shape or appearance indefinitely, and missed that one. Thanks! I'll add that to my list, which I will include here in case anyone else is interested.

Long duration shape or appearance alterations

Wild Shape (druid starting feature): Polymorph to beast form, retain your size
Alter Self (wizard U16): Your size humaniod, doesn't include clothes
Flawless Disguise (Ex Assassin L8 feature): Short rest, humanoid of your size, disguise kit
Veil of a Thousand Faces (Ex Assassin U10): Craft a new disguise

Changeling (race): Medium humanoid, doesn't include clothes
Hengeyokai (race): Tiny animal form

Tuathan Animal Shape (human or HE theme): Tiny fey or natural beast
Flowing Features (U6 Watershaper theme power): Humanoid of your size, doesn't include clothes
Were-themes (various): Beast forms which only last until the end of the encounter

Shadow Serpent Form (Fang of Zehir PP): Serpent form, same size
Mercurial Disguise (Mercurial Assassin PP, dragonborn): medium humanoid, includes clothing
A Thousand Faces (Steadfast Sentinel U16): Humanoid your size, including clothing and items
Shape of the Traveler (Traveler's Harlequin PP): Medium or small humanoid, clothing changes size

Deceptive Veil (Disincarnate ED): Illusory medium humanoid, includes clothing
Magnificent Beast (Sovereign Beast ED L21 feature): Wild shape into large size beast

False Blood Amulet (L7 item): Gain humanoid's origin and keywords.
Hat of Disguise (L10 item): Illusionary appearance of humanoid of same size, includes clothing.
Vryloka has a couple utility powers - the U6 turns you into a wolf and the U10 a tiny flying creature. The Vampire class also has a couple similar powers.
At one point made a Half-Elf Fighter|Druid Blood Moon Stalker who had Freezing Burst as its dilettante power, which could be used in Wild Shape and would mark. And it had Savage Rend for MBAs with combat challenge.

So, basically the build was a White Wolf.

True, but I'm trying to avoid daily powers that only last for an encounter, or encounter powers that last for a round. I really want powers that last indefinitely. At-will powers like Wild Shape are preferred, but encounter powers like Shape of the Traveler are acceptable.

And before anyone asks, yes, I also want a pony optimized for adorableness for all "wanting" gets me. ;)

For what it's worth, the Heroes of Shadow Wizard build gets a summon that lasts until it is destroyed.
