Fon Master Ion
Frank Castle A tiny skull like so!

Nita Callahan A looping knot except golden in color.
Nott Lovell Green flames with copper-coloured sparks.
Obi-Wan Kenobi This glowing blue symbol.
Papillion Dark and purple; if Gabriel Agreste should ever bend there is a match
Phoenix Ikki
Piper Cardenas Slowly turning golden hourglasses with purple glitter inside instead of sand. If you look closely, you can see that some of the glitter sand is shifting back into the top of the glass mysteriously, instead of falling through to the bottom, despite how the glass is turned.
Portugas D. Ace Red & orange beads of flame, speckled with his hat's smiling & frowning faces, like so.

Sabine Wren
Sanji Small, short blue spirals, with hints of waves/ocean in the blue. The spirals always spiral outwards counterclockwise. Sample image of spiral. (yes, it's his eyebrows…)
Sonic the Hedgehog (Archie Comic) A blur. Of blue. Maybe throw in some special sparklies when he uses an angelii ability.
Suzaku Kururugi Chaotic but fluid streaks of red lines as if drawn with a dry calligraphy brush. It seems impressive but ultimately does not have a deliberate shape or form. The brushed kanji for "fortitude" (kennin) seems to linger sometimes and would be bold and clean among the rest of the chaos.
Thomas In a word: plain. In more words: neutral, earthy tones in an orderly, simplistic pattern. Like…squares. The pattern tends to be disrupted at times, however, depending on the situation.
Tikal A Peach Fuzzy Glow (like the hint balls in Sonic Adventure 1)
The Onceler Exactly what he puts on his door: "The Once-ler's" in cheerful green lettering.
V Elegant cursive script, interrupted for a few words in chickenscratch scrawls. The script is black, maroon, and red, the scrawls red and orange; both seem to be behind a sort of heat-shimmer.
W.D Gaster
Xehanort (Young) Superimposed clock hands that sweep with a pronounced spiky blue trail that grows larger the further the hands go around the circle.
Xemnas Silver, white, and/or black spiraling lines (sometimes the silver or white as a reflective, contrasty setting) with sharp edges. It shares the same characteristics of the Twilight Thorn ability, but in the non-lethal sense. Lately, a bright, nearly stinging violet reflects on some of those sharp twists.
Roronoa Zoro A red and black katana crossed over a white one. Resembles an asterisk.
