Announcing the Final Fantasy NPC tournament 2005! Atfer the great success of the <a href=http://forums.eyesonff.com/showthread.php?t=46515>2004 NPC tournament</a> where Beatrix of ff9 defeated Rubicant of ff4, it is time to relive the glory in 2005! Due to some eligibility complications, Beatrix will not be defending her title, but we've got a full slate of baddies and goodies to battle it out.

We need a field of 64 NPCs, however I have 65 that have qualified to participate. Therefore we must have a play-in gmae to determine which of the final two qualifiers get to join the elite field of 64.

This year's play-in game pits X-2's Shinra against VII's Professor Gast. Vote for who gets to join and prepare for the full field to be set! You may vote based on perceived battle strength, perceived coolness, random coin toss, or any other method you prefer (except the rhythm method, who are you trying to fool?)

Shinra knew math and told you all kinds of useful stuff!

this is why these two were stuck in the play-in. Not so special.

I did not even remember who Gast was when I first read this, so I voted for the stupid little spherebreak freak.

Shinra, totally. Especially after a certain discussion with Squall of seeD.

Prof Gast is Aeris's father
Okay, so even after I thought I remembered who, I really didn't. Shucks.

I like the way that this is still tied up.

...Prof. Gast.

Masamune·1600
08-22-2005, 01:25 AM
Shinra has the higher RPI, but that's just because Gast is from a mid-major. I'll go with Gast.

What?

eestlinc
08-22-2005, 01:34 AM
since this is the play-in game and noone really cares that much, and the winner faces...Hades, I think we can close this up in a little while, one hour from now. then I can post the first bracket after that.

Go Prof. Gast! <3

Divisions B, D, F are in a heated and explosive struggle! I haven't seen action like this since the Dodgers had Eric Karros and Mike Piazza hitting back to back home runs against the St. Louis Cardinals on October 6, 1993 for a 3-1 win! < / vin_scully > :D

Olan is awesome.

so is Neel.

But Neel's not an option. :cry:

Don Corneo gets a vote for his kickin' wall market theme
Leblanc gets one because she's so friggin 'amusing xD
and Princess Hilda gets one for being impersonated so nicely by Q. Lamiax D

Hojo owns Ovelia, although Ovelia is still cool.

Del Murder
08-22-2005, 03:41 AM
Hojo is one of my favorites. I hope he and Ultros do well in this division.

raskerino
08-22-2005, 04:09 AM
Raine marries Laguna (the ultimate character) while Leblanc only gets Noojie-Woojie.

Come on people vote raine

MAS82587
08-22-2005, 05:09 AM
lol im outraged that Ultros didnt get a #1 seed.

eestlinc
08-22-2005, 06:13 AM
Ultros is cool, but he's not strong enough to be #1. Bahamut shouldn't really be a #1, since it's ff1 Bahamut, but he made the final four last year so I gave him the benefit of the doubt. And I guess if he can upgrade classes he could probably kick the crap out of Ultros too.

Besides, Ultros has a pretty easy path in the first two rounds.

Dreddz
08-22-2005, 11:27 AM
FFV : Cid OR bahumat should win.........

eestlinc
08-23-2005, 01:49 AM
I'll probably move to round two of this bracket later tonight, so get any last minute votes in now!

Del Murder

*edits Hojo to have a million point lead*

eestlinc
08-23-2005, 04:00 AM
yea I think Hojo has this one wrapped up.

eestlinc
08-23-2005, 04:20 AM
So we have some winners in the first round of bracket A, and here are our compelling second round matchups:

1. Bahamut (I) vs. 9. Don Corneo (VII)
The class change master from the old school master meets up with the crazy pimpin Rapps star of the PS king daddy. This one could go either way.

5. Olan (T) vs. 4. Raine (VIII)
The only one who knows the truth faces off against Raine. I;ve never played ff8 so I have no clue what Raine does. I think Raine is Squall's dad, or mom, or something. Anyway, go Olan!

6. Ultros (VI) vs. 14. Cid (X)
The grand master of the 2005 EoFF elections and all around awesome octopus buddy Uncle Ulty meets up with our big upset winner of the bracket, the ubiquitous Cid in his FFX incarnation. What? I'm just a stupid octopus?

7. Namingway (IV) vs. 2. Hojo (VII)
Easily the weirdest moon man ever thinks his opponent Hojo should change his name to TifaLuvr6969. Hojo thinks Namingway should shut up and change his own name to YellowGreenBlueXXII.

Vote for one in each group of two, and may the best NPCs advance!

Wow, Corneo is shooting for a major upset here.

Masamune·1600
08-23-2005, 05:24 AM
Bahamut, Olan, and Ultros. And Hojo, who never intentionally took steroids.

eestlinc
08-23-2005, 05:42 AM
Corneo upsetting the highly overrated Bahamut (I) would be fine by me.

PearlRose
08-23-2005, 08:55 PM
Hmm, I can't believe I missed voting in the first few rounds. I guess that's what the start of a new semester at school will do to you, though.

Bahamut is pulling ahead slightly...can he hold off Don Corneo for another few hours?

Hah. Broke the Bahamut/Don Corneo tie. :D

eestlinc
08-25-2005, 09:52 PM
excellent, now to move to round 3 of this bracket!

eestlinc
08-25-2005, 10:01 PM
After some tight battles and one big upset, we move on to round 3 of the first bracket. Here's our matchups:

9. Don Corneo (VII) vs. 5. Olan (T)
After ekeing out a 9-8 upset over topseeded Bahamut (I), our favorite slum lord faces off against the master astrologer Olan and his Galaxy Stop attack. Olan dispatched Raine (VIII) without too much trouble, winning 11-7.

6. Ultros (VI) vs. 2. Hojo (VII)
Lovable cephalopod Ultros completely dominated Cid (X) in round two, winning 15-2. Now he faces the crazed doctor and beach bum Hojo in what should be a premier matchup in the tournament. Hojo was victorious over Namingway (IV) 13-6.

TurkSlayer
08-26-2005, 02:52 AM
*Waves Hojo flag* Woot! Hojo for the win!

Masamune·1600
08-26-2005, 02:58 AM
Olan and Hojo.

eestlinc
08-26-2005, 04:45 AM
anyone who voted for Corneo over Olan obviously hasn't played Tactics.

Del Murder
08-26-2005, 04:55 AM
Hojo vs. Ultros is a pretty big matchup for this early in the game. Should be a good one!

NeoCracker
08-26-2005, 12:29 PM
I like Hojo, i voted for him in all the other rounds, but i also like ultros, voted him all the way to. HEad spinning, loyalties breaking, Asprin disapearing.

Ultros! I love You!

Ultima Shadow
08-26-2005, 02:56 PM
If Hojo wins, Uncle Ulty will be very sad. :(

eestlinc
08-28-2005, 06:14 PM
Wow, we have an all ff7 matchup in the finals of Bracket A:

9. Don Corneo (VII) vs. 2. Hojo (VII)
Don Corneo pulls off another improbable upset over Olan 11-7. His reward is facing the lovely Hojo who barely eked out a victory against the very popular Ultros 11-10. Who will represent Bracket A in the final four?

Masamune·1600
08-28-2005, 06:44 PM
Hojo.

Del Murder
08-29-2005, 05:14 AM
Hojo is my man.

eestlinc
08-29-2005, 05:18 AM
will he get the clean sweep? He really should. Too bad Olan isn't here, but I guess Hojo would kick his ass too.

Miriel
08-29-2005, 06:04 AM
I hate coming into this thread...

Anyway, Hojo for the win.

Captain Maxx Power
08-29-2005, 12:49 PM
Let's see. Mad scientist who's the real reason behind all the bad stuff happening in the game and who mutates his wife, son, several townspeople and random furry animals, is willing to commandere a giant cannon, hangs about with loads of chicks on a beach, and injects himself with his own crazy experimental fluids!

Against a man who has a thing for transvestites and is a complete arse...

Like you need ask.

NeoCracker
08-29-2005, 04:33 PM
This doesn't look like a victory so much as a massacre

eestlinc
08-29-2005, 06:34 PM
hey, I'm not the one that voted the Don into this round in the first place. :tonberry:

Del Murder
08-30-2005, 02:42 AM
Hojo vs. Ultros was the real final for this bracket.

Del Murder
08-31-2005, 07:27 AM
I am filling in for eestlinc while he is on vacation this week. We're ending this round because it has been brutal.

Results from bracket A final:

9. Don Corneo (VII) - 1
2. Hojo (VII) - 12

The scientist wins in a massacre.

Ok on to bracket B! Vote for one name in each pair.

1. Hades (IX) vs.
16. Professor Gast (VII)

8. Desh (III) vs.
9. Ellone (VIII)

5. Rin (X) vs.
12. Queen Remedi (TA)

15. Gogo (V)

Masamune·1600
08-31-2005, 07:36 AM
The 1-16 is actually my most difficult pick. I'm going to defy the seedings and take Gast.

As for the rest, I'll go with Desh, Rin, Bikke, Zalbag, Reno, Robot, and Rubicant.

Black Mage
09-03-2005, 04:13 AM
The H group is tied again. Go, Gogo!

I can tell already that I'm going to be very upset with the results of this tournament: Desh is losing to Ellone.

A lot of upsets in this round!

A. 1. Hades (IX) - 8

Round 2

16. Professor Gast (VII) vs.
9. Ellone (VIII)

13. Bikke (I)

11. Zalbag (T) vs.
3. Reno (VII)

2. Rubicant (IV)

Masamune·1600
09-03-2005, 06:48 AM
Gast, Rin, Zalbag, and Rubicant. Easy choices.

TurkSlayer
09-03-2005, 06:50 AM
Gast, Bikke, Reno and Robot. I say Robot for the win.

Madonna
09-03-2005, 07:39 AM
I think it'd be best if Ellone and Gast choked each other to death in a double suicide.

Black Mage
09-03-2005, 07:49 AM
After losing both Gogo and Desh, all we've got left is Bikke and Zalbag. That better be the finals.

NeoCracker
09-03-2005, 08:44 AM
Reno, Rubicant, or Ghast will probably win.
Im going for Ghast, cause id like to see Ghast Vs. Hojo.

Del Murder
09-05-2005, 12:53 AM
Round 2 results:

<b>A. 16. Professor Gast (VII) - 11 </b>
A. 9. Ellone (VIII) - 5

B. 5. Rin (X) - 6
<b>B. 13. Bikke (I) - 9 </b>

C. 11. Zalbag (T) - 3
<b>C. 3. Reno (VII) - 12 </b>

D. 7. Robot (I) - 6
<b>D. 2. Rubicant (IV) - 9 </b>


Time for round 3:

16. Professor Gast (VII) vs.
13. Bikke (I)

Professor Gast tries to continue his improbable run as the lower seeds continue to dominate.

3. Reno (VII) vs.
2. Rubicant (IV)

A pretty good matchup of quality NPCs. Rubi has the FFVII bias to get over now. 'Allow me to heal you before we fight, Reno.'

Masamune·1600
09-05-2005, 03:38 AM
Gast and Rubicant.

eestlinc
09-11-2005, 12:36 AM
So Reno vanquished Professor Gast 14-3 to advance to the final four out of Bracket B. Now, on with Bracket C!!!

1. Golbez (IV)
16. Arylon (I)
<i>The evil adversary of FF4 meets the evil...um...dancing villager...of FF1. Both have the ability to make men do their bidding.</i>

8. Llednar (TA)
9. Princess Sara (III)
<i>I have no idea who Llednar is, but he sounds elvish or something. Princess Sara however is the hot red dominatrix of 8-bit fame.</i>

5. Quan (IX)
12. Dr Unne (I)
<i>All I can say is this would be a very strange matchup on Celebrity Death Match.</i>

4. Lion (XI)
13. Fujin (VIII)
<i>I don't even know who either of these two are.</i>

6. Buddy (X-2)
11. Erin (IX)
<i>Erin flies the airship.</i>

3. Vormav (T)
14. Yang's Wife (IV)
<i>One is crazy and kills lots of people and then turns into a devil. The other gives you a frying pan and a spoon.</i>

7. Rufus (VII)
10. Guido (V)
<i>Rufus doesn't do much of anything except get his ass kicked, and Guido is a ninja turtle. Still, Rufus will probably win just because OMG FF7 IS TEH BESTES!</i>

2. Jecht (X)
15. Katarin (VI)
<i>Jecht does stuff, I guess. Katarin singlehandedly repopulates the town of Mobliz. You be the judge.</i>

09-13-2005, 12:22 AM
Some close ones, some runaways in round 1.

Here's round 2:

1. Golbez (IV) vs 9. Princess Sara (IX)
Golbez made quick work of Arylon 10-2, while Princess Sara knocked out Llednar 7-4. This is a good matchup of crazy old school FF outfits. Both of them would feel at home in a goth club.

12. Dr Unne (I) vs 13. Fujin (VIII)
Both underdogs won the first round, with Dr Unne edging out Quan 7-6 and Fujin crushing Lion 9-3. I'm sure they will produce an exciting round 2 matchup.

11. Erin (IX) vs 14. Yang's Wife (IV)
Another pair of upsets as Erin barely defeats Buddy 6-5 and Yang's Wife thoroughly embarrasses Vormav 9-3. Yang's Wife is more popular and also more silly, but Erin has that oglop magic and a sailor suit.

7. Rufus (VII) vs Jecht (X)
Rufus flipped Guido on his shell and won 8-4. He'll face a tough challenge in Jecht who easily dispatched Katarin 10-2.

Masamune·1600

We had some close battles and now we have four who have emerged to battle out in the next round of Bracket C:

1. Golbez (IV) vs 12. Dr Unne (I)
Golbez handles the firecracker Princess Sara 10-5 to move on and face the underdoctor himself, Dr Unne, who barely eked out a victory over Fujin 7-6. Go moon man!

11. Erin (IX) vs 7. Rufus (VII)
Erin slid past the late surge of Yang's Wife for a 7-6 victory. Her reward is a matchup with the President of ShinRa himself, ol boy Rufus, fresh off his 12-6 trouncing of Jecht . FF7 characters seem to have the upper hand in the tournament this year. Can Erin stem the tide?

Masamune·1600

Golbez-Dr Unne makes for a difficult choice. I'll go with Golbez.

Rufus is an easy choice for the other match.

Now for the finals of Bracket C.

1. Golbez (IV) vs 7. Rufus (VII)
Golbez handled Dr Unne with relative 8-4 ease. Rufus took his ff7 handicap and had a relatively weak showing against Erin, winning 9-6. Now the question is whether Golbez can prevent the third straight ff7 character advancing to the final four.

NeoCracker
09-18-2005, 08:34 PM
We need golbez, we at least need one non ff7 in the final rounds

09-21-2005, 02:18 AM
So Golbez has vanquished the mighty Rufus 9-7 and prevented the total dominance of ff7 characters. Now for the final bracket! It's a good one...

1. Delita (T) vs 16. Dorga (III)
<i>The great NPC of Tactics flows against the big tide. Dorga doesn't do much of anything.</i>

8. Yunalesca (X) vs 9. Nooj (X-2)
<i>I got nothing on this one.</i>

5. Gatta (X) vs 12. NORG (VIII)
<i>Don't even know who these characters are, but they face each other.</i>

4. Siegfried (VI) vs 13. The Invisible NPC (I)
<i>This is quite an interesting matchup. Siegfried tantalizes us with his untapped potential, while the invisible NPC probably would be difficult to defeat considering she's invisible.</i>

6. Balmafula (T) vs 11. Dr Lugae (IV)
<i>Wouldn't it be great if Balmafula advanced all the way to face Delita? She does know the truth, after all. Dr Lugae reminds me of snot.</i>

3. Gilgamesh (V) vs 14. Nono (TA)
<i>Man this bracket is stacked. Gilgamesh for the win?</i>

7. Lani (IX) vs 10. Archduke Kam'lanaut (XI)
<i>No character from XI has wona single matchup. Lani seeks to continue that trend.</i>

2. Paul (II) vs 15. Palmer (VII)
<i>Woohoo, Paul! Palmer has a dedicated following, though.</i>

Masamune·1600
09-21-2005, 02:34 AM
Dorga, Yunalesca, NORG, Siegfried, Balmafula, Gilgamesh, Lani, and Palmer.

Palmer vs. Paul was difficult. As cool as Paul is, though, Palmer gets hit by a truck. C'mon.

If we end up seeing a Siegfried-Gilgamesh final for this bracket, I'll be happy.

eestlinc
09-21-2005, 02:36 AM
Dorga?

Masamune·1600
09-21-2005, 02:39 AM
Yeah. It's not really about Dorga; I just don't like Delita. It doesn't really matter, though, since Dorga has virtually no chance of winning this round.

winners of round 1 of bracket D:

1. Delita over 16. Dorga 11-6
8. Yunalesca over 9. Nooj 12-3
12. NORG over 5. Gatta 13-1
4. Siegfried over 13. Invisible NPC 8-7
11. Dr Lugae over 6. Balmafula 8-7
3. Gilgamesh over 14. Nono 16-0 (CRUSHING!)
7. Lani over 10. Archduke K 14-1
15. Palmer over 2. Paul 10-5

so the next round:

1. Delita (T) vs 8. Yunalesca (X)

12. NORG (VIII) vs 4. Siegfried (VI)

11. Dr Lugae (IV) vs 3. Gilgamesh (V)

none of these were close in round 2:

1. Delita over 8. Yunalesca 8-3
4. Siegfried over 12. NORG 10-1
3. Gilgamesh over 11. Dr Lugae 11-0 (crushing!)
7. Lani over 15. Palmer 9-2

so for round three:

1. Delita vs 4. Siegfried
This is a very good matchup.

3. Gilgamesh vs 7. Lani
Can Gilgamesh win three straight shutouts?

megadrive vs excalipur.

Wow, Gilgamesh dominated again, defeating the overmatched Siegfried 18-3 to advance to the Final Four. Here's where we are now, with two great matchups that could each go either way:

2. Hojo (VII) vs 3. Reno (VII)
<i>A matchup of two powerful enemies from ff7, you get the mad doctor against the attitudinous Turk. Either one could pull out the victory and advance to the final matchup.

1. Golbez (IV) vs 3. Gilgamesh (V)
<i>Battle of the Big Gs pits the pseudo-evil moon baby against the four-armed H(N-zone)IC. Definitely a matchup worthy of the final four.

Masamune·1600

So now, your NPC 2005 championship match, to join Beatrix in the NPC hall of fame:

Reno (VII) vs Gilgamesh (V)
<i>A dream matchup? The most popular NPC from the most popular FF game faces off with one of the most famous of all NPCs ever. A clash of the titans. Touph Ring vs Excalipur. Four Eyes vs Four Arms. Many battles filled with witty banter vs Many battles filled with witty banter.</i>

In V, Gilgamesh was an enemy. He was pretty ruthless, but had some wierd lines. You end up fighting him about five times, I think. In the end all he is really doing is enjoying life by fighting you over and over agian.

Reno is cool, but Gilgamesh is the best sub-villain ever.

rubah

Gilgamesh is a hero because he tries so hard to do good work for his boss, but his own ineptitude causes him to fall further and further out of favor.

He's a mirror for our own failings in life.

Plus, he's got the best boss battle music ever. Clash on the Big Bridge = <3
