View Full Version : Eyes on Final Fantasy Summon Tournament

80 Summons from thirteen games are going to duke it out in a popularity tournament to see once and for all, which summon is the darling of EoFF. Hell they may even get a theme to commemorate their victory*. So who is ready to see which one of our favorite monsters of death and cuddliness will reign supreme?

The tournament is separated into ten brackets of eight competitors. They are taken from the first thirteen games due to the FF Wiki being really coy on which Primals are actual summons/pets and because most of them are already accounted for. Item based summons will make a showing. Don't expect spin-off stuff cause eighty is already too much, you want to do all of them, make your own tournament which will likely gave hookers, booze, and blackjack.

I'll post a separate thread for each bracket after the previous one has been finished voting. You will have up to 48 hours from the thread starting to vote.

*Summon will most likely not get a reward for winning. Chances of this tournament actually reaching the end before I get bored is 1:12 chance. Participants will not be reimbursed and staff will not be held responsible for the laziness of the MC.

I pretty much have nicknamed the first round for all the brackets as the "great culling of the Espers" from VI and XII.

Btw, the Onion Knight (http://home.eyesonff.com/showthread.php/168657-EoFF-Summoner-Tourney-Onion-Knight-Bracket-Round-1) bracket is up.

Wild Rose's first round is done.

Carbuncle reflected back Adrammalech's lightning to score a flawless victory.
Yojimbo sent his dog to deal with Goblin since it wasn't worth the effort.
The timer hit zero on Belias and he was cut in twine by Odin.
Syldra's Thunderstorm short-circuited Brynhildr.

Onion Knight is still going on with less than 24 hours left to vote.

The Red Wings Bracket (http://home.eyesonff.com/showthread.php/168666-EoFF-Summon-Tourney-Red-Wings-Bracket-R1) is now open.

As for the Red Wing Bracket, I flipped a coin to decide the tie.

Asura healed through and wore out Crusader...
Eden smite Midgardsormr

Sorry about the delay in this. I'm doing NaNo this month and it's also that time of year where half of my family clan has a birthday (including myself) so it's going to be a bit hit and go for a while. I'll give you the results of the last three tourneys and as usual, ties are determined by coin toss.

Results from the last three brackets:

Onion Knight
Alexander nuked the hell out of Leviathan.
Valefore Ray Bombed Cactaur

Red Wings
Eden mystified Asura and she got dizzy switching heads trying to figure out what she was and passed out.
Phoenix is feasting on roast Chocobo.

Dawn Warriors
Tonberry used Everyone's Grudge to get revenge on KotR that many a young fan abused.
Diabolos won the VIII GF popularity contest over Brothers thanks to his tasteful one piece swim suit in the swimsuit round.

Results for last three brackets are:

Magitek Knight

The Magus Sisters kept bickering with each others after a failed Delta Attack and didn't notice Doomtrain before it was too late.

Shiva and Typhon had a climatic battle that got interrupted by Ultros who called Mr. Typhon back to the Dragon Neck Colesium to help him with his debt.


In a serious battle of Earth vs. Wind between Fenrir and Garuda, Fenris suddenly remembered he used to be Wind Elemental as well and used both earth and wind to finally ground the bird.

Sylph sucked the life out of Bomb before he even had a chance to self-destruct. Almost like he was a Capri Sun.


Hades inflicted every bad status he could on Bahamut ZERO, including Confusion, which is why BZ left and nuked Cocoon instead.

Atmos swallowed Bahamut but while resting in his interdimensional gullet, Bahamut remembered their was actually a time that he used to be the Ultimate summon and with renewed vigor, Mega Flared his way out of Atmos and sent it back to small cameos in XIV and mobile games.

The last two brackets for Round 2 of the Tourney will be up soon.

Results for the last brackets in Round 2.


Valigarmanda's frozen shell protected him from Exodus' Meteor spell and even broke him free to counterattack and win.
Ifrit's origami talent wowed the audience and allowed him to beat Golem's ventriloquist act in the talent show.


Anima reached into herself to find her motherly instinct and took Mateus over her... second self? and spanked him for kidnapping ice spirits.
Zeromus couldn't bring himself to harm Mini Mog after seeing how cute it was, which made it easier for Mini Mog to sneak up behind him and shank him like a prison bitch.

Round 3 will start shortly.

11-16-2016, 03:41 AM
I've been following the tournament so far. I can't wait to see who the over-all favorite is going to be. My personal vote will always go to Bahamut.

Okay, sorry for the delays, and sadly there may be more of them as FFXV comes out this week... anyway, here are the winners for each bracket:

Warrior of Light:

Red Rose:

Onion Knight:

Red Wings:

Dawn Warriors:

Magitek Knight:


Bahamut (Classic)



As usual, ties are determined by coin toss (sorry Doomtrain) and the next round will pit each of the bracket winners against each other. There will also be a special round after that...:shifty:

11-28-2016, 08:32 AM
These are all a good summon. It'll be a tense run up to the end, I'm sure.
