This is my last puzzle before the holidays, have a nice summer everyone. Here's a link to the rules of these kind of problems:

There are six boxes on the left, and another six on the right. The ones on the left conform to a pattern, or rule, that describes them, and the task of the problem-solver is to find this pattern, or rule. As an aid, the six boxes on the right do not conform to the same pattern. Sometimes they conform to a different pattern (as is the case in the above example), while in some cases the rule that describes them is simply the negation of the rule on the left. (Thus, the six boxes on the left are the ones that, somehow, have the official status of defining the pattern.)

    Since you removed both tags for trivia and knowledge, I will now assume that no knowledge about this game is required to be able to solve it. Please place them back if this assumption is wrong. – PL457 Jul 17 at 15:41
  • @PL457 the puzzle does not require any external sources nor specific knowledge, I provided the link to the rules in the puzzle – SilverCookies Jul 18 at 7:57
  • This is so difficult. What almost work is rot13[abg orvat noyr gb qenj na havagreehcgrq fgenvtug yvar orgjrra gur yrsgzbfg naq evtugzbfg rkgerzr cbvagf], but alas that just fails for the bottom-right one. – jafe Oct 19 at 7:29

    @SilverCookies Take the leftmost rightmost points and draw a straight line between them. Here I've marked the line green if it stays inside the shape the entire way, and red otherwise: i.stack.imgur.com/z7rbL.png But again, it doesn't quite work :/ – jafe Nov 12 at 12:00

Following the hint given by @Saeidryl in comment, maybe the answer is

fictitious versus real

On the left:

apocalypse-arsonist plaguebearer necromancer nosferatu Jester werewolf

On the right

doctor townie-female spy jailor bodyguard crusader

  • First guess was wrong so no longer an answer but not deleting it to help better inspire ones – SMR Jul 16 at 13:01
  • "arbitrary" differences like the one suggested by you are forbidden in Bongard, I will add the rules to the question. You can consider it the theme of the question I guess, but it has nothing to do with the answer – SilverCookies Jul 16 at 13:57
