You cannot deny that all of the Meowscles skins are super cute. Look at those eyes! Specifically, Furmidable Meowscles, the bodybuilder, jungle-living kitty-cat is an Epic Skin and hails from Chapter Four: Season Three. He was part of the Taste of Purradise Set and had many cool missions leading up to the final prize, a cool, Hawaiian t-shirt wearing cat with sandals. He was only obtainable in the season’s Battle Pass and, in my opinion, the coolest skin in Fortnite.
