View Full Version : FF Character Tournament Madness! Winner revealed!

Welcome to the second installment of the Official Eyes on Final Fantasy Character Tournament, or April Madness if you prefer. This year we will have 4 divisions, each representing a certain set of games. No more FFVI characters hogging up the later rounds. The divisions are:

Old School (FFI-III, Mystic Quest)
Glory Days (FFIV-VI)
Teen Angst (FFVII-IX)
Games Spuuky Hasn't Played (FFX, X-2, XI, Tactics, Tactics Advance, Crystal Chronicles)

Before we get things underway, we have a few spots left to fill, and a once in a lifetime opportunity for four lucky characters to make the big dance. This is known as the play-in round. Eight characters will battle it out in one-on-one matchups for the 16 seeds in this preliminary match. The winners never end up doing anything, but it provides for an emotional moment for some of these characters who always dreamed of making this tournament.

As always, <b>vote by selecting one name out of each lettered pair. This is a multpile selection poll, so you can vote in as many or as few matches as you like</b>. Use any criteria you like for making your selection: power, personality, importance to story, personal preference, etc.

Rounds will last a couple days. Here is an unfinished bracket for those of you who want to get a head start on your office pools.

Interesting. I never saw one of these before.

I'm guessing Cloud was intentionally excluded from the tournament. No Alcindor UCLA to compete against, then.

So, a Summoner is a 3 seed and Sage is an 11? This can only be the insidious work of the RPI.

Agrias would be an awesome sleeper pick.

I don't really car about Josef and Ming-Wu... but I'll just vote Ming-Wu.

Cyan was 1 of my fav FFVI characters so he gets my second vote.

Eiko got my thirth vote since I simply like her more than Selphie... and she doesn't use any cheap The End moves.

I've never been able to play FFT since I live in europe... but someday I will... because it really seems to be a great game. FFTA on the other hand was a dissapointment in my opinion and I never liked the characters in it and therefore Agrias gets my last vote... just because he probably is from a better game and PROBABLY is a better character. :greenie:

Josef, Setzer, and Cyan got my votes, for being generally cooler than the rest.

EDIT: I voted in a rush without carefully reading the brackets, so yes, I realize voting for both Cyan and Setzer were wasted votes. Oh well.

Voted, though I seemed to be a bit VI heavy. So much for parity.

Take care all.

Del Murder
04-14-2005, 05:08 AM
Yeah, VI will probably dominate this division. They have a chance to do so in the first round.

Masamune·1600
04-14-2005, 07:04 AM
Kind of a boring first round for me. I voted for all higher seeds--except for the 1 seed. That which has never happened in the NCAA tournament might happen here! FFVI definitely has a chance to dominate, partially due to the limitations of FFV characters in the process.

Ultima Shadow
04-14-2005, 08:07 AM
Cyan, Shadow, Locke, Cecil, Faris, Terra, Kain and Rydia gets my votes.

I really hope that Shadow and Rydia will do good since they are my absolute favourite FF characters. :)

Snap Jumper
04-14-2005, 05:48 PM
Terra 8, Rosa 0? Was there ever any doubt about this one?

Meanwhile, it's looking quite bleak for the 5 cast. Maybe if Galuf were on there, they'd have a chance. And, yes, I voted a handful of 6's, except for picking Edge over Locke.

PearlRose
04-14-2005, 09:08 PM
Well, it's definitely not looking too good for the V cast, although I did vote for a couple of them.

I tried to vote based on who I liked, and when I liked both characters fairly equally, then I would vote for the one I thought would have the least likely chance of making it to see Round 2. My way of rooting for the underdog.

Terra's looking like she'll most definitely trounce Rosa - it's now 10-nil in her favor.

Psychotic
04-14-2005, 10:40 PM
Celes, Shadow, Locke, Cecil, Edgar, Terra, Kain and Rydia for the win!

3 FFVI, 3 FFIV. No FFV...wow. :eek:

Yes, Like Del Said, FF6 tends to destroy in the early rounds, but in the end there hasn't been an FF6 winner yet. Cloud and Beatrix are the only winners thuis far and are excluded from this tourney.

Oh, and heres a little spoiler:

Galuf is Krile's father and she inherits everything that Galuf is so a vote for Krile is a vote for Galuf.

Again, Del if you need any further assistance with this, I'm always here for ya.

9 Shadow (VI)

5 Locke (VI) vs.
4 Cecil (IV)

6 Edgar (VI) vs.

Can Rydia, Cecil and Kain hang with the overpowered FFVI Conference?

*votes against celes by way of personal ethics*

that and shadow is ownage.

It was hard to decide between terra and edgar:/ ironically, I don't remember which one I chose, and now they're tied.

(I think it was edgar, because I've had an excellent lj icon with him in it^_^)

I think I voted against rydia because of how dorky her hair was when she was a kidX.x;

Hmm, Locke and Kain aren't competing against eachother, at least not yet. Kain is competing against Rydia and Locke is competing against Cecil. :cool:

I"m hoping Shadow will pull back ahead of celes.

*hopes*

PearlRose
04-18-2005, 02:20 AM
Go Celes!

(With so many vocal Shadow supporters, I couldn't resist. :P)

So many great characters to choose from. I'd be happy with the results from this round, no matter what character they are. I like all eight that made it this far a lot. This bracket is definitely the hardest to pick from for me. ^^

TurkSlayer
04-18-2005, 02:25 AM
The problem with the Celes vs. Shadow thing is that they are both among my fav. FFVI characters! Still, Shadow is cooler. We need two more votes for Shadow and no votes for Celes. PLEASE!!!

Behold the Void
04-18-2005, 03:40 AM
Shadow wasn't as compelling a character in game because of his "I'm a silent badass" persona. I did like his dreams, but they don't make up for the depth that Celes was given.

I do think Kain's character has much more depth than Rydia, what with his relationship with Cecil and Rosa and why he was susceptible to what happened.

fire_of_avalon
04-18-2005, 03:46 AM
I haven't played FFVI, so I my voting is silly. :D

eestlinc
04-18-2005, 03:55 AM
I should have helped with the seeding. I'd say each of these four matchups is pretty even. Celes and Shadow are both decent, Locke and Cecil are both very powerful, Terra and Edgar are about equally great, and same with Rydia and Kain.

Del Murder
04-18-2005, 05:50 AM
Here are the results of Round 2 of the Glory Days Division:

<b>1 Celes (VI) - ||||\||||\||||\|||| 19</b>
9 Shadow (VI) - ||||\||||\||||\| 16

<b>5 Locke (VI) - ||||\||||\||||\||||\ 20</b>
4 Cecil (IV) - ||||\||||\||||\|| 17

6 Edgar (VI) - ||||\||||\|||| 14
<b>3 Terra (VI) - ||||\||||\||||\||| 18</b>

7 Kain (IV) - ||||\||||\||||\|| 17
<b>2 Rydia (IV) - ||||\||||\||||\|||| 19</b>

So Celes, Locke, Terra, and Rydia will advance to the Sweet 16! On to a new division, the Old School Division, where this great series got its start. Even if most of the characters weren't much for personality development, they were still useful nonetheless. Round 1:

1 Ninja (I) vs.
16 Josef (II)

8 Onion Kid (III) vs.
9 Ninja (III)

5 Black Wizard (I) vs.
12 White Wizard (I)

4 Knight (I) vs.
13 Phoebe (MQ)

6 Gus (II) vs.
11 Sage (III)

3 Summoner (III) vs.
14 Red Wizard (I)

7 Maria (II) vs.
10 Lionhart (II)

2 Frionel (II) vs.
15 Gordon (II)

Some good matchups already. White Wizard/Black Wizard and a sibling rivalry with Maria/Lionhart.

For some reason new threads get posted without the poll while the user writes the poll. It's dumb.

Llanowar
04-18-2005, 06:41 AM
Just goes to show you how absolutely PATHETIC MQ is in the eyes of most FF players. Only one was put in the poll and that one has recieved ZERO votes LOL how could they put the Final Fantasy name on that game? The one disgrace to the FF series that I have ever played. I don't love FF:CC, but at least it isn't a disgrace like MQ was.

Masamune·1600
04-18-2005, 06:56 AM
And I voted thus:

Ninja (FFI). Josef's not really all that impressive. I'll take the Sasuke-wielding Ninja.

Ninja (FFIII). Probably the most powerful character in the old-school division. Ragnarok in one hand, Masamune in the other. Need I say more? I will. Also has a very powerful version of Throw.

Black Wizard (FFI). Tough call. But I'll go with the offensive magic.

Knight (FFI). The original sword-guy.

Sage (FFIII). The ultimate magical powerhouse. Has all summons and all magic.

Summoner (FFIII). Tough call. I would have taken the DoS Red Wizard, thanks to Lightbringer, but that doesn't strike me as very old-school. The real RW falls short.

Lionheart (FFII). The only battle where I actually had to look beyond battle utility. Lionheart's just, well, cooler than Maria. By a lot.

Frionel (FFII). My Frionel is powered up excessively. Gordon is....the FFII equivalent of Edward/Gilbert (ouch). This qualifies as a rout.


For obvious reasons, with the old-school games, character development isn't a high priority.

PearlRose
04-18-2005, 01:46 PM
So Celes, Locke, Terra, and Rydia will advance to the Sweet 16! On to a new division, the Glory Days Division, where this great series got its start. Even if most of the characters weren't much for personality development, they were still useful nonetheless.

Er, don't you mean Old School? :p

Anyway, this division was kind of hard to choose from, if only because I've never actually <i>played</i> any of these Final Fantasies before. I might be better off abstaining from this one. ^^;

TurkSlayer
04-18-2005, 06:34 PM
I haven't played FFIII or MQ, but I've played the others. Err... I forgot what I voted for... :D

And as for Shadow losing, CURSE YOU CELES SUPPORTERS!!!! j/k I like Celes too, but Shadow was better.

Yes I agree Sabin not having a place in the IV-VI section is a travesty. That muscle bound Kefka pounding FREAK of NATURE is awesome. I guess since VI was going to dominate anyway the creators assumed that the deck didnt need to be stacked any farther in VI's favor :) Oh well maybe next time He will be put in.

Masamune·1600
04-20-2005, 02:51 AM
Let's see....

Ninja (FFIII). Still dual wielding Ragnarok and Masamune. Still the old-school ninja with Throw. Not close.

Knight (FFI). Knight is the powerhouse class of FFI, in my opinion. Tough call, though.

Gus (FFII). If Gus somehow got by the Sage, the Summoner has no chance.

Frionel (FFII). Underdeveloped, personality-lacking main characters are pretty awesome.

Del Murder
04-20-2005, 02:52 AM
Gus is indeed also known as Guy. I used the names from the Origins version of the game, since that is the only version I have.

PearlRose
04-20-2005, 05:21 AM
Wow, a tiebreaker? Cool.
::vaugely wonders how it works::

Oh, well, another round in this divison, with the characters I'm still less than familiar with. If it wasn't the week all my final papers were due, I'd so start playing one (or all) of these games. Voting on word of mouth and usefulness, then, I suppose.

Del Murder

For tiebreakers I hold a super-secret committee and we have a runoff vote. The committee can have anywhere from 1-99 members.

Ultima Shadow

Ninja(FF1), just because I say so. Knight, just because it's the by far best class in FF1. Summoner... jsut because... bah, nevermind... I just voted summoner. And finally... my last vote goes to Maria... just because... uuuh... well... just... BECAUSE! :greenie:

MrEvil

Black Wizard wins because of knights low magic resistance and his awesome 1-hit KO attacks which kill that kind of fighter. Also because Knight wasn't cool enough to be put into a 3D game now, was he?

Remember 8-bit theater's old tagline:
"Black Mage always wins!

strawberryman
04-21-2005, 04:15 AM
Remember 8-bit theater's old tagline:
"Black Mage always wins!
but not Black Wizard. I thought the black wizard was actually kind of weird looking, and he most certainly could'nt hold a match to a Knight. They're just too strong, and have too much HP.

Masamune·1600
04-21-2005, 04:22 AM
Real FFI Black Mages/Wizards are kind of lacking as far as Hadoken and stabbity death are concerned. Besides, BM can never actually manage to kill Fighter (unless you count the episode where BM sacrificed the whole party, only to have Sarda immediately bring them back).

And that is what makes the 8-bit mage seem all the more cooler. He's actually being forced to go on this whole "save the world" adventure, unlike the FF1 mage, who does so willingly.

Here are the results of Round 2 of the Old School Division:

<b>1 Ninja (I) - ||||\||||\||||\| 16</b>
9 Ninja (III) - ||||\||||\||| 13

5 Black Wizard (I) - ||||\||||\||| 13
<b>4 Knight (I) - ||||\||||\||||\||||\ 20</b>

6 Gus (II) - ||||\||||\||| 13
<b>3 Summoner (III) - ||||\||||\||||\ 15</b>

<b>7 Maria (II) - ||||\||||\||||\|||| 19</b>
2 Frionel (II) - ||||\||||\ 10

The original Ninja managed to hang on, while Maria beating Frionel is the biggest upset so far. These characters will advance to the Sweet 16 and join their fellow cartridge friends.

Now we swtich gears and move on to a potluck division of sorts, the Games Spuuky Hasn't Played Division. Spuuky is a busy man, as you could imagine, and so doesn't have time to play some of the later games in the series, but hopefully some of you have played them! I fully expect FFX dominance in this division, even though Tactics had some great characters. Round 1:

1 Ramza (T) vs.
16 Agrias (T)

8 Marche (TA) vs.
9 Red Mage/Ninja (RDM/NIN) (XI)

5 Rikku (X) vs.
12 Paladin/Warrior (PLD/WAR) (XI)

4 Orlandu (T) vs.

I'm 1 of those who never have been able to play FFT but...

Agrias (sounds cooler).
RDM/NIN (probably is cooler since Marche not really is all that awesome).
Rikku (she was good in FFX).
Orlandu (once again... is PROBABLY much cooler).
Beowulf (I don't like Paine at all).
Yuna (she was atleast ok in FFX and extremely powerful in battles).
Lulu (probably the best female in FFX storywise).
Auron (the obivious choise).

The Sweet 16 is almost complete. Now we proceed to the final division, saving the best for last, and by best I mean most popular, the Teen Angst Division! That's right, there are very few FF fans that have not gotten a taste of these games, or at least whined about how bad they are. By far the most popular set, FFVII-IX made this series a household name, and to think that the secret was to merely include 3D graphics and more young characters complaining about their problems. Enough talk, on to the matchups:

1 Vivi (IX) vs.
16 Selphie (VIII)

8 Quistis (VIII) vs.
9 Garnet (IX)

5 Cid (VII) vs.
12 Freya (IX)

4 Zidane (IX) vs.
13 Zell (VIII)

6 Red XIII (VII) vs.
11 Quina (IX)

3 Vincent (VII) vs.
14 Irvine (VIII)

7 Aeris (VII) vs.
10 Rinoa (VIII)

2 Squall (VIII) vs.

This round features the battle of the Zs and a faceoff between two heroines. Vote by selecting one name out of each lettered pair in the poll (should I still have to say this every time?).

What a close round! We now have all we need for the Sweet 16, but since this is FF I'm going to call it the SPOONY 16. This is where it gets good. Here are your matchups:

Old School Division:

1 Ninja (I) vs.
4 Knight (I)

3 Summoner (III) vs.
7 Maria (II)

A couple of original FF powerhouses collide in what will be a hard and long battle. Will Maria or the first Summoner be able to take advantatage of the survivor?

Glory Days Division:

1 Celes (VI) vs.
5 Locke (VI)

3 Terra (VI) vs.
2 Rydia (IV)

A couple of lovers tangle (oh come on, you know they dig each other), while Rydia tries to stay alive as the last remianing non-FFVI character in this very strong division.

Teen Angst Division:

1 Vivi (IX) vs.
5 Cid (VII)

3. Vincent (VII) vs.
2 Squall (VIII)

I'd say this one is wide open. Vivi surpirsed me by getting a 1 seed, but this will be his true test, going up against the very popular Cid Highwind. Meanwhile, we have a couple brooding characters taking each other on in this aptly named division.

Games Spuuky Hasn't Played Division

1 Ramza (T) vs.
4 Orlandu (T)

3 Yuna (X) vs.
2 Auron (X)

As expected, Tactics and FFX dominated this one. We have a couple in game showdowns here, to see who is the best from their game once and for all. Two focal characters going up against two very popular swordsmen.

Voting will last three days this time. Remember to select one character from each lettered pair in the poll.

We move on to the divisional finals, aka the EXCALIBUR Eight! These characters will battle it out to be the best of their era, and gain a spot in the Final Four.

Old School Division

4 Knight (I) vs.
7 Maria (II)

Maria has had an impressive run, beating a few higher seeds in the last rounds, but she faces her biggest challenge in the powerful Knight. It is the classic struggle of personality vs. strength that you will only get in the Old School Division. The first FF heroine vs. the first FF hero! The Knight's incredible power and defense, might be too much. Of course, with the FFII levelling system, Maria could be turned into a similar type of character, but that doesn't really fit her. Give her a bow and throw her in the back row tossing out Fire11 spells, that's what I say.

Glory Days Division

1 Celes (VI) vs.
2 Rydia (IV)

Girl power reigns supreme in this tough division. A valiant effort from Rydia, she has been able to hang with the big kids, aka the FFVI crew, but now she has one more to deal with. After dumping last year's runner up, Celes hopes to continue her good fortune against the Caller of Mist. Will Runic be able to stop Bahamut's Megaflare? The winner of this match has a very good chance of making it to the finals, going up against the weaker Old School division, so this is great chance for both ladies to make it big!

Teen Angst Division

1 Vivi (IX) vs.
3 Vincent (VII)

The battle of the Vs! Vivi surprised me with a number 1 seed, but he has stepped up to the plate so far. Now he faces the enigmatic Vincent. These characters are both the result of expiriments, so there might be some kinship here. They also both attack from afar, Vivi with his powerful black magic, and Vincent with a shiny gun. Could be a good match. I mean, whatever.

Games Spuuky Hasn't Played Division

4 Orlandu (T) vs.
2 Auron (X)

We close this round with a battle between two powerful and wise knights. Excalibur vs. Masamune. Thunder god vs. Undead. Both characters have great popularity due to their strong will and convictions, and their resolve to stand up for what they believe in. Armed with Excalibur, T.G. Cid will attempt to Lightning Stab his way through the legendary guardian. With the equally notorious Masamune, Auron will try to lure Orlandu into one of his Tornado overdrives. Only one can make it to the Final Four!

Voting will last three days. Please vote by selecting one name from each lettered pair in the poll.

Getting down to the wire! Here are the results of the Excalibur Eight Round:

4 Knight (I) - ||||\||||\||| 13
<b>7 Maria (II) - ||||\||||\||| 13*</b>
*tiebreaker used

A very close battle where 8-bit competitors traded attacks for magic. With both having white magic abilities, this looked to end in a draw, but at the last second Maria uses her last 16 MP to throw out an Ultima16 prayer, and it does the job.

1 Celes (VI) - ||||\|||| 9
<b>2 Rydia (IV) - ||||\||||\||||\||| 18</b>

Looks like the former Magitek Knight was no match for the Caller. After trading spells, Rydia started her Bahamut attack, and as a last ditch Runic effort Celes put up her sword, only to have it blown away by the king of dragons.

1 Vivi (IX) - ||||\||||\||||\ 15
<b>3 Vincent (VII) - ||||\||||\||||\| 16</B>

Vivi tried to win this one with the auto-reflect + reflectX2 approach. This provided for some powerful offense, which gave him the edge for a while, but also allowed Vincent to get a limit break. The little mage could not reflect a devastating Splattercombo.

4 Orlandu (T) - ||||\|||| 9
<b>2 Auron (X) - ||||\||||\||||\||||\ 20</b>

In this turn-based match, Orlandu threw every swordskill in the book at the legenday Guardian, but he wouldn't have any of it. After fighting is way into overdrive, Auron took aim and blew his opponent away.

Now we arrive at the Final Fantasy Four! This is every character's dream. We have some fresh faces here, since only one of these characters (Auron) has ever made it this far. On to the matchups:

7 Maria (II) vs.
2 Rydia (IV)

A couple of strong women get it on in this battle. Maria's status as first heroine has certainly helped her get this far, but now she enters the relm of the big games. She's been through some tough battles, but that only makes her stronger! Rydia seems like a runaway freight train at this point, destroying the FFVI crew and moving on to her first Final Four. Her magic will have to come through again if she wants to make the finals.

3 Vincent (VII) vs.
2 Auron (X)

Two of the most popular characters in FF history. These guys do things their way and have their own adgendas. Vincent's transformations might not be enough this time, as the experienced Auron has overcome much more greusome creatures, though it will be interesting to see if the Masamune can pierce Chaos's thick hide. These two met in last year's Elite Eight Round, with Auron coming away with a convincing victory. Here is a chance for revenge!

Vincent sucks though. How the hell did he make it this far? Maria and Rydia are both strong but neither should have made it this far either. This is like that year that two eight seeds made the final four in the NCAA tourney. Auron should win in a landslide if there is any justice. Which there isn't.

Well, Auron sucks more. "Omg I'm so much experienced than you and you suck, speaking of people that suck, everybody except me sucks. That's just how it is. I'll just go over here and be alone and look like a loner that's really cool and stuff like that. Did I mention that everybody but me suck? Well, they do."

Can't say I have much left for Vincent either, but if there's any justice, Auron shouldn't win.

He was one of the best characters in my game. Better than Barret. And why does everyone get upset when you can't control a character? Its why everyone hates Umaro. I'm mean, come on, If you play games like Kingdom Hearts or Star Ocean, you can't control everyone at once, but no one complains.

Yeah, since Vivi Got Gyped last round.... I'm gonna go with Vincent. He's cooler than Auron. And on the other card I feel that the slayer of FF6 characters, Rydia, will again triumph over her F6 opponent. Its amazing that Rydia blows down any opponent she faces... Including either Auron or Vincent next round. GO RYDIA!!!!

And thus ends the Final Fantasy Four. Here are the results:

7 Maria (I) - ||| 3
<b>2 Rydia (IV) - ||||\||||\||||\||||\||||\|| 27</b>

From the very start Maria was determined to make short work of her competition, but to no avail. Before casting her most powerful Ultima16 spell, the caller of Mist called upon Asura to put up a protective Wall, sending the spell right back at her and making all further magic attempts useless. Though quite skilled with a bow, this could not do nearly as much damage. A few summons later, and Rydia was able to tsunami her way right into the finals.

<b>3 Vincent (VII) - ||||\||||\||||\||||\| 21</b>
2 Auron (X) - ||||\||||\||||\|| 17

In a much closer battle, Auron and Vincent were able to keep damage minimal, with Vincent firing from afar and Auron blocking most shots with his strong blade. As the battle raged on, Aruon's overdrive slowly built up with each passing turn, until it finally reached its max. Taking a swig of his brew, the legendary guardian lit up his Masamune and hit the former Turk with all he had, but Vincent managed to survive and gain a limit break of his own, transforming into the mighty Chaos. Aruon managed to survive a few swipes and gain a second overdrive, but Chaos slashed his way right through it to give Vincent the close victory.

And now, we go on to the finals! Here are your combatants:

<img src="http://forums.ffonline.com/images/avatars/ff4/rydia2_64.gif">
Rydia
Game: Final Fantasy IV
Age: 20something
Hometown: Village of Mist
Occupation: Caller/Black Mage
Weapon: Whip
Special Attack: Bahamut Summon

Rydia had an uphill climb, finding herself in the strong Glory Days Division. After beating some of the FFVI greats like Mog, Terra, and Celes, she was able to wear the 16 bit crown with pride. Now she faces Vincent. Before this battle, she made sure to get a good cabin's sleep and stock up on Ethers. Will she be able to overcome the FFVII bias and beat Vincent? This green haired warrior will give it her best.

<img src="http://www.gamerhub.com/share/customavatars/avatar1354_1.gif">
Vincent Valentine
Game: Final Fantasy VII
Age: 27
Hometown: Midgar?
Occupation: Former Turk/Vampire
Weapon: Gun
Special Attack: Chaos Transformation

Vincent, the mysterious cloaked gunslinger, makes his first championship appearance. He was able to beat some tough players, such as Squall, Red XIII and number 1 seed Vivi. He has both barrels loaded, though with Rydia's powerful magic he will not have the distance advantage in this contest. Luckily for him, he can become a snarling beast to match any she calls, making this a truly freakish battle.

Only one match to vote in, so let's get them in!

Asura is Rydia's most useful summon. Plus there's Bahamut. And Meteo. Plus she uses whips.

Vincent's best move is dying quickly so you don't have to waste time healing him. And he uses a gun, which is weak. And his guns do crap damage.

As the battle rages on, here is some data on our finalists:

Last year Rydia went to the Sweet 16 to be defeated by Locke, the eventual runner up to Cloud.

Vincent made it a round further, only to lose to Auron, the very person he beat to make it into the finals.

I ranked all characters from last year based on a stat I call 'Q', which involves total votes, seed, distance gone, and strength of victory. Rydia's Q from last year was 63.9, placing her rank 10th (3rd in her division). Vincent had a Q of 78.9, which was good for 7th overall (2nd in his division). For a comparison, the character with the highest Q was tournament champion Cloud with 146, and the lowest was Josef with 5.6.

I will end this thing tomorrow or Sunday so get those votes in! It's much closer now.

Ok, here are the results of the finals:

<b>Rydia - ||||\||||\||||\||||\| 21</b>
Vincent - ||||\||||\||||\ 15

Rydia wasted no time calling upon Leviathan to start the battle, dealing Vincent a heavy blow. Vincent tried to get to higher ground, and managed to fire off some shots from an elevated position. Bahamut was called, but Vincent countered that with his own version of Bahamut, in materia form! The two dragons fought each other to a stalemate. Rydia, without her best attack, searched for something to do. She called the angry Titan, but the resulting damage only gave Vincent a limit break opportunity. The mighty Chaos showed his ugly head and proceeded to pound the young summoner. During the transformation Rydia was able to charge up the Meteo spell and let the demon have it, turning him back into Vincent. Both combatants tired, Vincent tried to finish off his opponenet with some Death Penalty blasts, but Rydia kept calling on her monsters to take the blows. Finally, a very weakend Vincent had to reload, and while doing so, Rydia used her last resort, and the only summon she had left... Chocobo! Vincent never saw it coming, and the feathered fiend managed to deliver the final blow, giving you your winner, and new FF Tournament champion:

Rydia!

I never got into fan art of FFs, but Hot Damn... Rydia sure has a lot of fans. I voted for ther because she's uber-useful. NOT becuase shes sexy... Wowie Zowie... I saved a few of those just because they were so damn cool.
