following the resounding success of the character tournament, here we have a tournament of selected NPC's from throughout the Final Fantasy multiverse. Seedings have been determined on a subjective opinion on how these characters might fare in battle. Vote for one character in each group of two. Here's the first bracket.

here's a html bracket.

Rufus wins, tournament over. *close*

04-05-2004, 07:16 AM
watch Duncan and Bannon win this brakcet since they are in FF6

Man, if Don Corneo wins this round, I'm gonna beat somebody. :aimmad:

04-05-2004, 03:25 PM

Those are my votes

04-05-2004, 04:27 PM
A. Easy one. Beatrix all the way.

B. Even though Don Corneo had more character, I'll go with Richard because Dragoon > Pimp. :D

C. I think Hiryuu will arise to the sky as the winner over the annoying Guado fool.

D. I'll go with Jessie. She's a nice character, and if it wasn't for Tifa, Aeris and Yuffie, she and Cloud might make a good couple.

E. This is a tough one because I like both characters. I'll pick Rufus. Still a tough one.

F. The Sea King Leviathan will sink Ellone before she can junction the serpent's mind into another body.

G. The guy is called Jecht, not Jeckt. Anyway, even though Jecht is a cool badass, I'll go with Sailor Erin. She'll literally bring out her best cards before Jecht can shock the audience with his Jecht shot.

H. This one's really easy. Everyone loves Gilgamesh because he's one of the coolest side villains ever, and because his music theme rules!

Beatrix is whoopin' Leblanc badly. I don't think there's a question that she is the breast out of those two.

04-06-2004, 06:30 AM
A: Beatrix
B. Don
C. Hiryuu
D. Duncan
E. Rufus
F. Leviathan
G. Erin
H. Banon

04-06-2004, 06:36 AM
Bannon sucks ass, though. Health is midly useful but he is prime "let die" material except that you can't.

04-07-2004, 08:15 AM
Results from round 1:

Beatrix 13
Leblanc 0

Richard 7
Don Corneo 6

Hiryuu 10
Seymore 4

Duncan 10
Jessie 3

Rufus 12
Baralai 3

Leviathan 10
Ellone 4

Jecht 7
Sailor Erin 6

Gilgamesh 11
Banon 4

So on to round two:

(1) Beatrix IX vs (8) Richard II
Will Beatrix continue her dominance with another clean sweep?

(5) Hiryuu V vs (4) Duncan VI
Dragon air power vs. the Bum Rush. you be the judge.

(6) Rufus VII vs (3) Leviathan IV
In a matchup of rulers, the President of ShinRa vs. the King of Summoned Monsters

(7) Jecht X vs (2) Gilgamesh V
Even a sword doing 1 damage can't hinder Gilgamesh, can it?

04-07-2004, 03:24 PM
Beatrix, Duncan, Rufus, and Jecht are my votes.

04-07-2004, 05:10 PM
Beatrix, Duncan, Leviathan, and Gilgamesh.

04-08-2004, 05:32 PM
Hopefully we can get a couple more votes for this round!

beatrix or gilgamesh had better win this bracket. *votes*

04-09-2004, 04:46 AM
Oh yeah, Beatrix is the breast out of this bracket. Gilgamesh is a close second.

04-09-2004, 06:56 AM
rufus and leviathan are tied...so I'll leave it open a bit more.

Del Murder
04-09-2004, 07:10 AM
I could cheat but I'll wait until a later round before I start doing that.

04-09-2004, 07:43 AM
xD I'm not going to cheat either. Not that I think it matters who wins because Beatrix and Gilgamesh should cruise to the finals of this bracket anyway.

04-09-2004, 11:53 PM
Beatrix, Hiryuu, Rufus and Gilgamesh.

Del Murder
04-10-2004, 12:34 AM
We broke one tie only to have another!

04-10-2004, 06:01 AM
Ok, round two is closed. The results:

Beatrix 15
Richard 0

Hiryuu 7
Duncan 8

Rufus 9
Leviathan 7

Jecht 4
Gilgamesh 11

Round three brings some more excitement:

1. Beatrix IX vs 4. Duncan VI
Can the martial arts master Bum Rush Beatrix for the upset? Can Duncan even get a single vote?

6. Rufus VII vs 2. Gilgamesh V
The young President of ShinRa always has a trick up his sleeve, but he may have met his match with the übercool Gilgamesh.

04-10-2004, 06:05 AM
Don't worry, eest, we all do it sometimes. You just assume that that damn 'multiple response' button will click itself, dontcha?

Beatrix, obviously, and Gilgamesh.

04-10-2004, 06:10 AM
Maybe we should skip the rest of this bracket and advance Beatrix to the final four...

04-10-2004, 06:19 AM
There. I'll do it myself. Now no one has to know...MWAHAHAHAHA!

Del Murder
04-10-2004, 06:56 AM
Mods can see deleted posts in vB3. :)

Good to see Rufus make the cut.

04-10-2004, 07:02 AM
Well, can they also change thread titles? That capitalization mess-up is annoying the bloody shite outta me.

04-10-2004, 07:04 AM
RMs should be able to edit their own thread titles, but nope. I blame Yams.

Whoever voted for Duncan should be shot.

04-10-2004, 07:16 AM
Thanks to whoever did that. I won't kill myself now. :)

Del Murder
04-10-2004, 07:17 AM
When I was one that was something that I wanted as well. Maybe when this whole vB3 stuff is sorted out I'll mention it. (editing thread titles that is)

04-10-2004, 06:18 PM
beatrix because she is prolly one of the top females in a final fantasy! the other choices i voted for Rufus cuz hez the only one i remember :D

04-10-2004, 10:11 PM
I'll go with Beatrix and Rufus.

04-10-2004, 10:12 PM
Go Rufus go!

04-10-2004, 11:35 PM
Beatrix and Rufus are my votes and I'm betting they'll both advance.

04-11-2004, 04:01 AM
Gilgamesh... is losing...?

04-11-2004, 05:26 AM
Rufus isn't that good.

04-11-2004, 05:46 AM
Rufus was pretty good, but the all-out pimpness of Gilgamesh puts the ShinRa Prez to complete shame.

04-11-2004, 05:48 AM
Screw Rufus. Gilgamesh had better battle music.

Beatrix and Gilgamesh.

The Man
04-11-2004, 10:58 PM
It is a travesty of justice that Gilgamesh isn't winning by more votes.

Beatrix and Gilgy, obviously.

04-12-2004, 05:24 AM
Results from round #3:

1. Beatrix 14
4. Duncan 3

6. Rufus 7
2. Gilgamesh 10

Now, for the Finals of Bracket #1:

1. Beatrix (IX) vs. 2. Gilgamesh (V)
Awesome strength and massive chest vs. comic hilarity and a much needed save point before ExDeath. Beatrix has breezed to the finals, while Gilgamesh met a surprising challenge from Rufus. Both characters sport massive popularity, but only one will advance to the final four.

04-12-2004, 05:45 AM
Gilgamesh. Weeeeee...

04-14-2004, 07:19 AM
It comes down to a grudge match between Beatrix and Gilgamesh in the finals of bracket #1. Who will go on to the Final Four?

04-14-2004, 03:03 PM
Oh just close the thing while Beatrix is winning, it's only going to end like this anyway.

Edit: A vote for Beatrix, because I didn't make it too clear. <3 Beatrix

04-14-2004, 04:17 PM
Hey, why don't we get to vote?! :aimmad:

There's no way 19 of us voted for 4 votes total. :mad:

04-14-2004, 04:18 PM
It's 2-2, with 19 votes? I also haven't voted yet, but this still claims I have.

04-14-2004, 05:27 PM
we're having technical difficulties. I'd fix it but I can't.

04-14-2004, 10:29 PM
Damn thing.

04-15-2004, 03:34 AM
I've reopened this thread so that this poll will work correctly because I screwed up the one in the other thread.

So VOTE! :)

NOW! :)

04-15-2004, 03:35 AM
Massive chest beats humor. Because Massive chest also brings humor.

Del Murder
04-15-2004, 03:54 AM
Fixed I hope :D. Leeza, your effort was admirable.

04-15-2004, 04:17 AM
Well, I tried. Thanks for merging. :)

04-15-2004, 03:09 PM

Leeza, you rock! :rock:

04-15-2004, 06:12 PM
Gilgamesh is putting up a good fight. Could Beatrix possibly lose?

04-15-2004, 06:23 PM
Great! *votes* This kind of match should have been in the final rounds, you know. Beatrix and Gilgamesh are two very good NPCs.

04-15-2004, 06:28 PM
there are some other good ones in the other brackets, mind you.

04-15-2004, 07:38 PM
Well, since I just notice this (and thus wasn't able to push Leviathan to victory) I'm going to vote Gilgamesh.

04-15-2004, 11:57 PM
How can people vote on Beatrix instead of Gilgamesh? What does she have that good old Gil doesn't? Except the obvious, of course.

(not that I didn't vote for her earlier in the tournament, though)

The Man
04-16-2004, 12:01 AM
i've got to stay true to my roots and vote for ol' gilgy. it shames me to have to vote against beatrix though

04-16-2004, 05:00 AM
beatrix very clearly would beat gilgamesh in battle.

04-16-2004, 05:08 AM
Yeah, and that's exactly why **cough** Del starts **cough cough** cheating **cough** for us.

04-16-2004, 12:18 PM
No Gilgamesh will win.

The Man
04-16-2004, 09:56 PM
beatrix very clearly would beat gilgamesh in battle.
truly, but that's not what this contest is about, is it?

04-17-2004, 04:58 AM
My vote just put Beatrix in the lead.

04-17-2004, 06:39 AM
it's not necessarily based on battle strength, but that is a big factor. it's up to you whether battle skills, hilarity, or sex appeal is more valuable.

04-17-2004, 08:08 AM
well, Beatrix eked out a victor over Gilgamesh to make it into the Final Four. Now for bracket #2

Del Murder
04-17-2004, 04:58 PM

04-17-2004, 05:31 PM
Allus, Stiltzkin, Lucil, Seifer, Raine, Bahamut, Cid IX and Hojo get my votes.

04-17-2004, 06:15 PM


The Man
04-17-2004, 10:31 PM
I only voted for Ultros, Guido, and Hojo; there was no one else I liked enough to bother voting for, although I was tempted to vote Stiltzkin.

I will be severely disappointed if these three do not advance.

04-17-2004, 11:24 PM
Guido, Stiltzkin, Ultros, Seifer, Raine, Bahamut, Cid V and Hojo get my votes.

04-18-2004, 11:30 PM

yup he will win it all!

Flying Mullet
04-18-2004, 11:40 PM
Come on people, vote for Bikke!

04-19-2004, 06:12 AM
Bikke should be winning!

04-19-2004, 08:05 AM
Hmmm... Daryl is not losing. Good.

04-19-2004, 04:23 PM
A. A turtle sage vs a prince. I'll go with Guido.

B. A beauty vs a cutie. Even though Stilzkin is a nice character and sells you many useful items, I'll go with Alma.

C. Pfft... I'll just go with Lucil.

D. BIKKE: "Argh, Seifer! You beat me. Now you can take me ship!" Sure, Bikke's lines are hilarious, but Seifer is still a better character, IMHO.

E. Chick contest, eh? I'll go with Raine.

F. Bahamut. He's also Yuna's Aeon, right? That means he can kick Brother from the deck of the Airship whenever Brother's trying to harass Yunie. xD

G. Hey, I know! I bet Cid will win this one! Oh, I had to pick a game too. Nah, whatever. I'll just go with the Regent one from FF9.

H. Hojo. I always hated that guy, and all I can say, what an idiot. But then again, Zalbag isn't all that great, either. If this was Hojo vs Dycedarg, I'd certainly pick Hojo, but this is a tough contest... I'll still go with Hojo, though.

04-19-2004, 06:33 PM
dude, Hojo is a bad ass. I'll wrap this round up after work so get in those last minute votes!

The Man
04-19-2004, 07:46 PM
hojo certainly *is* a badass, but I have to say Square could have made him even more of a badass if they'd put a bit more effort into it :choc:

04-19-2004, 08:09 PM
dude, Hojo is a bad ass.

Exactly. That is why I hate that guy. Well, I guess that makes him a good character who you'll love to hate. Doesn't matter, I still voted for Hojo. :p

Del Murder
04-20-2004, 02:32 AM
One of the best scenes in FFVII: Hojo chillin on the beach of Costa Del Sol.

04-20-2004, 07:11 AM
Here's the winners from round #1:

Guido 13
Allus 2

Alma 4
Stiltzkin 12

Ultros 14
Lucil 4

Seifer 10
Bikke 5

Raine 9
Daryl 8

Bahamut 13

04-20-2004, 02:49 PM
Poor Bikke. :cry:

04-20-2004, 10:17 PM
Stiltzkin, Seifer, Bahamut, and Hojo

04-21-2004, 02:43 AM
but Guido is the fifth ninja turtle!

The Man
04-21-2004, 03:00 AM
I am highly disappointed that Guido is not owning everyone else in this tournament

04-21-2004, 04:49 AM
i guess you have to know whats up to see Guido's power.

Flying Mullet
04-21-2004, 01:51 PM
Forget about the rest of the tournament, I can't believe that Guido is losing to Stiltzkin. But I guess that's what happens when you have kids voting who've only played FFVII - FFX-2.

04-21-2004, 06:13 PM
Stiltzkin is pretty good, at least. Voting will wrap up tonight after I get off work, so mobilize the guido factions while you can.

Flying Mullet
04-21-2004, 06:14 PM
Guido factions unite!

04-21-2004, 11:56 PM
Stiltzkin, Seifer, Bahamut and Hojo.

04-22-2004, 12:23 AM
who is this stiltzkin!?

04-22-2004, 02:40 AM
stiltzkin is the moogle that delivered mail in final fantasy 9... my votes are for RAINE, SEIFER,STILTZKIN, HUGO

04-22-2004, 05:18 AM
and who is Hugo?

04-22-2004, 05:34 AM
Here's the winners from round 2:

Guido 4
Stiltzkin 10

Ultros 11
Seifer 6

Raine 6
Bahamut 12

Cid (V) 6
Hojo 13

on to the third round:

9. Stiltzkin (IX) vs 5. Ultros (VI)
travel the world for seafood soup. don't tease the octopus, kids!

3. Bahamut (I) vs 2. Hojo (VII)
one changes your class, the other changes your genetics. you be the judge.

04-22-2004, 05:36 AM
I look forward to a very competitive Hojo-Ultros match.

04-22-2004, 05:37 AM
wow, you are fast!

yea, Ultros and Hojo should win, just as predicted.

04-24-2004, 05:37 PM
some close matchups! vote until the end of tonight...

04-24-2004, 05:52 PM
I look forward to a very competitive Hojo-Ultros match.


Del Murder
04-24-2004, 06:06 PM

04-25-2004, 03:41 AM
come on hojo!

04-26-2004, 05:55 AM
how is Hojo losing? Bahamut in FF1 doesn't even do much of anything...I think people voted for Bahamut thinking of his awesome powers in later games.

04-26-2004, 05:58 AM
Ultros came through but Hojo was shocked in a huge upset to ff1's Bahamut. Results:

Stiltzkin 5
Ultros 10

Bahamut 9
Hojo 7

So the finals for Bracket #2 comes down to:

5. Ultros (VI) vs. 3. Bahamut (I)

I'll remind you that Bahamut is only the FF1 incarnation, but then again, he is a 3 seed. vote away for the right to face beatrix in the finals.

Del Murder
04-26-2004, 06:02 AM
:( Oh well Ultros is a worthy contender.

Flying Mullet
04-26-2004, 03:07 PM
Uncle Ulty all the way! :rock:

04-26-2004, 11:59 PM
well, it has turned out to be a Ultros-Bahamut match...


either Ultros will blind Bahamut with Ink or Bahamut will burn Ultros up ^_^

04-27-2004, 05:11 AM
or bahamut will promote ultros to Dodecapus

04-27-2004, 11:35 PM
BAHAMUT rules lol

04-28-2004, 01:33 AM
I voted for Bahamut.

04-28-2004, 02:13 AM

wow a tie so far....Ultros 8, Bahamut 8

04-28-2004, 07:07 AM
Just for the fact he's one hilarious octopus, Ulty gets my vote. *nods* :upsidedow

04-28-2004, 10:14 AM
Go Bahamut.
w00t even.

Del Murder
04-29-2004, 02:37 AM
Do you guys even know who you're voting for?

04-29-2004, 04:41 AM
I don't remember who I voted for. It seemed too close for me. :p

04-29-2004, 05:36 AM
Well, I can't say it's really an upset...but Ultros loses to Bahamut 10-9. Bahamut advances to the final four to face Beatrix. I'm not on my computer so I'll post Bracket #3 tomorrow when I get back on.

04-29-2004, 05:54 AM

04-29-2004, 07:33 AM
time for a last second voting and the one is.....

Bahumut! Yes, I know its the one from FF1, but I found Ultros to be rather annoying and Bahumut was actually useful and one of the more interesting parts of FF1.

04-30-2004, 01:40 AM
heh. Ultros WAS annoying from time to time.

"I'm not...some garden-variety octopus!"
"How sweet it is!"
"Ok...Uncle Ulty REALLY wants you to draw his portrait!"

Or, if you played Awful Final Fantasy III,:

"Hi, Pipebomb! Wanna be my friend?"
"I lost again?! :love::love::love::love:!"

[EDIT]wow...the "f" word was changed to loves...

04-30-2004, 05:29 PM
Ok, time for Bracket #3! Go Robot!

05-01-2004, 03:05 AM
Reno deserves to win...him and his red hair and rod and goggles.

05-02-2004, 08:08 AM
Yangs wife, cause the Spoon Dagger was INVALUABLE in my first victory against Zeromus, the first FF Final Boss I beat.

05-02-2004, 08:35 AM
Yang's Wife is my favorite contestant in the tournament.

05-02-2004, 04:42 PM

How can you not like Yangs wife? She gives you the most powerful throwing item in the game for smacking her husband in the head with a frying pan.

The Man
05-02-2004, 08:45 PM
I voted Reno, Leo, and Gestahl. Didn't really care about any of the other matchups.

05-02-2004, 09:21 PM
if you havent already,you people should stick Zack(VII) in these polls...

05-03-2004, 02:31 AM
Reno's winning so far. Good.

Flying Mullet
05-03-2004, 04:30 PM
Yeah, I'm going with Yang's wife too. First thing I thought of when I saw her in the poll was smacking Yang with the frying pan she gives you. :)

05-03-2004, 05:48 PM
Ok, on to round two of Bracket #3. It's sad to see Yang's Wife go, but even she can't compete with the good general. Gestahl pulls off the upset of Edea. The Robot won over Lucrecia in a tiebreaker.

05-03-2004, 06:21 PM
A. Princess Sara. She's my favorite NES character. :love:

B. I'll go with the Robot.

C. Reno. Go Turks!

D. Scarlet had better win this. We don't need that FF6's scumbag emperor.

05-04-2004, 12:05 AM
*has now voted* Didn't vote for Yang's wife though :p

05-04-2004, 02:04 AM
by the wya, cool signature, ranti. ^^'

Reno is now tied with General Leo?! heh, this can get interesting.

05-04-2004, 02:06 AM

Scarlet will bitch-slap that emperor back to Vector. (or whatever the capital was).

Go Reno. Him and his thumbs-up sign after each battle. :D

The Man
05-04-2004, 03:03 PM
Leo, Reno and Gestahl. Don't care about Dorga vs. Robot.

05-05-2004, 01:21 AM
Would Scarlet bitch-slap Gestahl back to Vector, or will Gestahl beat her with his "non-working" magic? o.o

05-05-2004, 03:17 PM
General Leo, Robot, Reno, and Scarlet are my votes.

05-05-2004, 05:57 PM
anyone who does not care about the Robot does not care about Final Fantasy :)

hopefully the scarlet-gestahl tie will be broken tonight...

05-06-2004, 02:10 AM
anyone who does not care about the Robot does not care about Final Fantasy :)

*ahem!* never played FF1, sorry. ;)

hopefully the scarlet-gestahl tie will be broken tonight.

Scarlet 11 to Gestahl 9? there ya go.

05-06-2004, 05:30 AM
*ahem!* never played FF1, sorry. ;)

then let me amend that to "anyone who has not played ff1 is not a true final fantasy fan" :D

seriously, the Robot is great. Ask Kishi.

05-06-2004, 05:34 AM
Ok, we move on to round #3

Powerhouse General Leo takes on the lonely Robot. Will you behis friend and take the CUBE? Or, will you be the biggest source of rumors in the pre-Sony Final Fantasy world?

In our other matchup, fan Favorite Reno matches wits against ShinRa cohort Gyahaha.

05-06-2004, 09:26 AM
I'll vote for Robot and Reno. I always thought the robot was pretty nice walking around the waterfall cave, and Reno's way too cool to lose to Miss Kya Ha Ha. But I've got to give Scarlet some credit for slapping that old fart Gestahl all the way back to Vector.

The Man
05-06-2004, 09:21 PM
leo and reno are the obvious choices here. the robot may have been great, but leo was bloody legendary.

i swear too much. i'm sure you can figure out where in this post i was about to swear but remembered this was eoff and didn't.

05-06-2004, 09:41 PM
I agree Leo should win but I voted for the Robot anyway. Besides, Leo DIES. The Robot does not.

The Man
05-06-2004, 10:02 PM
I'd insert my standard in-joke about spoilers here, but eoffffffff doesn't allow swearing to the extent that said joke contains so nevermind.

05-06-2004, 10:41 PM
anyone who doesn't know that Kefka kills General Leo in Thamasa obviously hasn't played ff6 and therefore is irrelevant.

05-07-2004, 02:22 AM
Leo and Reno <FONT SIZE=7>OWN!</FONT>

Leo and his Crystal Sword and Shock, Reno and his Rod and Turk Rays. Go them! ^_^

Thanks a lot, jerkoff.

*glances at Del, then at The Man*

i'm not gonna bother...

anyways, i look foreward to a very good Leo vs. Reno match.

05-09-2004, 08:24 AM
Here's you matchup for to get to the final four:

Reno vs. General Leo

vote away kids

05-09-2004, 09:32 AM
Here's a nice little rhyme:

Reno is his name,
And he is a Turk.
Leo got the fame,
But he is a jerk.
Reno will win this round,
Leo belongs to the loser mob.
Turks' victory is bound,
'Cause winning - it's their job.

05-09-2004, 05:45 PM
Leo loses points for getting smacked down.

That rhyme doesn't even make sense, since nothing Leo does during the entire course of FFVI could be described as the actions of a jerk. Even when he's serving the Empire, he has a strong sense of honour.

Of course, I'm taking a joke far too seriously and blah blah blah, I know, I just felt obligated to point it out.

I refrain from voting this round.

Bah, I was going to say that.

*votes Leo* and everyone else should too :cool:

05-11-2004, 01:35 AM
now that i think about it, "winning" (or killing Corneo countless times) IS their job. ;)

so, just because i was reminded of that, Reno gets my vote.

((and just as a side spoiler, i once dreamed that I was Reno. Then i fused with Gohan from DBZ :eek: ))

05-11-2004, 03:54 AM
No vote Reno!

05-11-2004, 09:18 PM

Agreed. *nod*

anyone else going to vote or does Leo win?

05-11-2004, 09:45 PM
Leo always wins.

05-11-2004, 09:59 PM
well, he didn't win against Kefka. he also might not win against the winner of Bracket #4!!!!!!

05-11-2004, 10:01 PM
Ok, the last of the four brackets. Winner of this one faces General Leo, who defeated Reno.

Flying Mullet
05-11-2004, 10:03 PM
Bah, that was just Leo's shadow as well that Kefka defeated. :chef:

Leo is still living in the mountains, much like Cyan.

05-11-2004, 10:37 PM
At least he defeated Reno. I would hate to see Leo lose now.


05-11-2004, 11:13 PM
Delita Hyral. He's one of the best developed characters in RPG history in my opinion.

Cool, Rubicant's in this.

05-12-2004, 08:30 AM
Arylon is getting shut out :)

No worries, I at least gave her one vote. I also voted for:

Delita, Dr Unne, Zorn and Thorn (I don't really like them, but FF3j's Unne wasn't anything special), Rubicant, Laguna, Boko and Garland.

Rubicant should take this bracket...

I can't remember who I voted for. They took out the italicising in the polls, which bugs me. Wankers. I think I voted like this though:

Josef ("Long Live Josef!" principle)
Dr Unne
Zorn and Thorn

05-13-2004, 10:10 PM
The winners: Delita, Dr Unne, Zorn and Thorn, Rubicant, Laguna, Siegfried, Boko, Garland. on to round two...

Some upsets in round 3. Now Delita faces the popular Rubicant while Laguna faces off against everyone's favorite chocobo, Boko.

Lots of great contestants on this round. I'll go with Rubicant and Boko.

05-22-2004, 06:08 AM
Man, I've been slacking with the merges. Rubicant was a plesant surprise in this tournament, even though I may have told eest to use him in the first place. I can't remember. Anyway, he makes up for the fall of Hojo and Rufus.

05-23-2004, 11:29 PM
Rubicant advances as the last member of the final four and the championship is set!

Beatrix, all-powerful and sexy NPC from FFIX faces Bahamut in his FFI incarnation, the king who sends the light warriors on a mission of courage.

In the other matchup, FFVI's ever-popular General Leo faces the also ever-popular Rubicant, FFIV's fire fiend in a matchup of enemies who would be our friends.

We managed to get a good cross section of games represented in the final four.

05-23-2004, 11:35 PM
Beatrix, definitely, but....the other matchup was extremely hard. I picked Leo, but I'm not sure why at this point.

05-24-2004, 01:00 AM
Beatrix and Rubricant.

05-24-2004, 03:11 AM
I just can't choose between Rubicant and General Leo.

I'll just vote for them both.

Del Murder
05-24-2004, 05:19 AM
How exciting. A Beatrix/Rubicant final would be a tough decision! Any other final would be easy though.

here it is folks, the epic matchup of the last two remaining NPCs.

Beatrix vs Rubicant

Two of the absolute best non-playable characters in Final Fantasy history. Not much else needs to be said.

05-26-2004, 09:22 AM
beatrix of course.THE SWORDSMASTER! :save:

05-26-2004, 11:10 AM
Hooray for FF4 and FF9 NPCs! This is a tough choice, of course, but after a bit of thinking, I decided to go with Beatrix. Her personality, character theme, beauty and battle skills are very impressive, although Rubicante's personality of a gentleman, cool ice/fire-absorbing cloak and the fact that he's the Fire Fiend all make him a great NPC too. Anyway, nice finals. May the best NPC win!

05-26-2004, 12:15 PM

As far as I know, this round already ended with Rubicant winning Leo 10-9. The final round is already up, Beatrix vs. Rubicant. It just hasn't been merged with this thread yet.

Pfft, Leo owned too much not to make it to the finals. Rubicant was cool, but Leo had Shock, and Shock > all. Except maybe Beatrix's Seiken.

Tough one, but I'm going to have to go for Beatrix.

Well, maybe next time Rubicant.

*walks off comforting Rubicant*

06-01-2004, 05:02 AM
Yea, you'd be hard pressed to come up with an NPC who is cooler and more powerful than Beatrix. Reno and Hojo should have done better, though.

The Man
06-01-2004, 05:05 AM
That they should have, Reno in particular. I think we ended up with a pretty good matchup in the finals though, although I think a Beatrix vs. Gilgamesh or Beatrix vs. Kuja finale would've been even more interesting.

06-01-2004, 05:10 AM
Yea, I tried to leave main bosses out of the game, though, thus no Kuja, Golbez, Sephiroth, Kefka, etc.

The Man
06-01-2004, 05:11 AM
hmm, yeah, that's a good thing, I guess. Another Kefka vs. Sephiroth match would've been tired and overplayed, and that's probably what it'd have resulted in.

06-01-2004, 10:18 AM
I agree with you, fellas. It's too bad Reno lost to Leo. And we could have had someone like Kuja or Gilgamesh in the final four instead of Bahamut. But a good tournament, anyway. We got the best people in the finals, they certainly deserved to get this far, and it was a very even match. They're both really well done NPC characters, and in the games where they appear (FFIV and FFIX), they do well both personality-wise and battle-wise. Well, the one who's more beautiful got the victory. :love:

I guess this means Cloud was the most popular playable character and Beatrix was the most popular non-playable character. Good stuff.

06-01-2004, 11:35 AM
so could Beatrix beat Cloud in a duel?

Ultima Shadow
06-01-2004, 07:38 PM

No, Cloud whould win easily.

06-02-2004, 04:25 AM
i,m gutted i missed this tournament :( ...when is the next one?

06-02-2004, 04:54 AM
it'll bewhenever me or murder put it together.

The Man
06-03-2004, 03:49 AM
No, Cloud whould win easily.
I beg to differ; it depends on their levels, I should imagine, but Beatrix is far more effective an attacker at a low level than Cloud is, and her magic skills are pretty much impossible to beat. At a higher level, It'd likely result in a draw unless Cloud got his limit break quickly enough.

Del Murder
06-03-2004, 03:50 AM
I'll cook up something, but not for a while.

Beatrix vs. Cloud - She would use something like Stock Break to cripple Cloud but that would cause his limit to reach max quickly and then he'd waste her. I don't think she would have any defense for Omnislash, and she couldn't get two attacks in because the limit gives you the next strike.
