I'd rather ask than get it wrong: locally, how would someone say "Bring it on!" or "Let's go!" (as opposed to spanish from Spain or Mexico)?

Well, bring it on it's not widely used here...

Not rude... that could "dale" that would be better translated as "go ahead", but must sound threatening.

More rude could be... "ven pa ca" that would be a commonly mis-spelling for "come over here", but it sounds better if you curse at the end.

The character won't sound as someone from chile, if he doesn't oftenly curse and swear cursing has become so common in this country, that some curses even has friendly connotations.

Hmm... I'll have to see. Technically, it was for the back of a character's jacket so maybe dale will get used. Character quotes will primarily be in english with a few interjections here and there in various parent languages. While language will be kept relatively clean, ven pa ca can still make it in if the the curse words are censored. I'm also wondering what "number one" and "unstoppable" would be.

This is rather difficult, but let me try:

*"Bring it on!" = I agree with Toxico's suggestion "ĦVen pa ca!" + random swear word

*"Let's go!" = "ĦDemosle!". We Chileans have a tendency to drop our "s" so it'd really sounds like "ĦDe'mole! or ĦDeh-mole!"

*"number one" = "La llevo" (if talking about him/herself) "La lleva" (if taking about someone else). "Bacan" could also be used.

*"unstoppable" = mmm. "El/la ma' bacan" (slang). "imparable" (proper translation, but we'd use other words depending on the context)

Take note that Toxico's real name is Karman Cole and is from Germany. You are being deceived!

Still pondering the translations but I do have a seperate question, what hairstyles are common? I originally had my character with DBZ hair to represent his fire abilities but I'm thinking of making it something low cut and occassionally Ghost Rider-ing flames from his head.

If you ever ever need a common Mexican hairstyle, go with the mullet, it never gets old over there.
