    Default Pumpkin's Character Tournament!

    Okay so, as some of you know, characters are usually my favourite thing about a game! So I wanted to do a little funsies character tournament. Here's how it will work:

    Each game can have a minimum of TWO characters and a maxiumum of FOUR characters to represent it. Meaning if I only liked one character from a game, they won't make it in (sorry Melia )

    These are obviously my personal favourite characters, so this list is highly subjective

    Series will work one of two ways: First is that 2-4 characters represent a series as a whole. Second is that I pick characters per game, BUT I cannot use a character towards more than one game. So for example, if I use Viktor for Suikoden I, I can't also use him for Suikoden II.

    I made up little character sheets for them with some general information. The bullet points are what I immediately think of when I think of that character, and also some tropes from TVTropes that make me think of them.

    Each round will be open for voting for 48 hours! If there is a tie or no vote, I will pick my favourite. So feel free to vote if you want to! You can just vote right in the thread. If you don't know the characters than you can look them up or go based on my small bits of information or even just vote by looks. Whatever floats your boat!

    The voting will go by game. If only 2 characters represent the game, they'll be against each other. If 3-4 characters do, I'll put their names in a hat and draw them out to get brackets. After each game is done, we will narrow it down by series, and then finally take all of the champions to see who reigns supreme in kitchen stadium!

    I still have some games to play which is why this will be going slowly. So just enjoy it, no stress, and hopefully we all have fun! If we run out of games before I finish my to play list, we'll just take a little break

    The brackets are posted below. Note that some will be added as I play a game. Note that the brackets are not in order of how they'll be done, that mostly depends on which order I get the character sheets done. So they'll be listed by series in alphabetical order and game by alphabetical or chronological order.

    A NOTE ABOUT THE ICONS! I really like images and wanted to add some. If you see a character's picture BEFORE the title of the game, it means they have won the series and will be in the finals. If you see their name after a game title, it means they have won that game, and not the whole series! Finalists are also listed below under the spoiler

    First round will be up tomorrow! Enjoy !!!!!!

    This could be fun. I'll be learning a lot of new characters here, that's for sure.
    My friend Delzethin is currently running a GoFundMe account to pay for some extended medical troubles he's had. He's had chronic issues and lifetime troubles that have really crippled his career opportunities, and he's trying to get enough funding to get back to a stable medical situation. If you like his content, please support his GoFundMe, or even just contribute to his Patreon.

    He can really use a hand with this, and any support you can offer is appreciated.

    I'm actually going to start tonight because I got a lot done today, so voting will be open for about 48ish hours after this~

    We'll start with a well known game to kick this off, Final Fantasy VII!!

    q71EMZY.png VS wlB1Twk.png

    Both are playable characters in Final Fantasy VII. Red XIII was experimented on by the evil Shinra (the antagonists) and is thought to be the last of his kind. He lives with an old man named Bugenhagen and thinks his father is a coward because he ran away when their village was under attack.

    Tifa is a childhood friend of the protagonist, Cloud, and she now runs a bar called 7th heaven and helps with an eco-terrorist group called AVALANCHE. She learns more about Cloud as the story goes on and faces some of her own past in the process.

    Alrighty, go ahead and vote if you would like!

    Also, you can click on the character sheets to see them in full size if you have trouble reading them!

    I'm gonna go with Tifa, but just BARELY. It's honestly a hard call, choosing between these two.

    Tifa, game play wise, was fairly poor. She was very good at first (but that is not difficult given how little characters you have then). Many of her knuckle weapons dealt fairly average damage. While her final two weapons are very very good, with Godhand having 255% accuracy and Premium Heart dealing more damage the more her limit break filled.

    In fact, keeping her limit bar filled is a decent idea, because her reels are fairly tricky to pull off successfully, and only get harder as you earn more reel slots.

    Meanwhile Red XIII is well rounded with both physical and magical capability, and has the second highest dexterity. His ultimate weapon isn't hampered by having a full limit bar (meaning you can't actually attack normally). His limit breaks are split fairly evenly between buffing and damage.

    I have to say Red XIII. Game-play wise, he is just superior to Tifa. I didn't use Tifa that often really in many of my playthroughs of the game. While Red XIII isn't the best character in the game, he is definitely up there. Plus his characterization is just fantastic.

    Tifa, definitely. My favorite character in the game, and she has one of my favorite character moments in the entirety of the series.

    This is a tough one for me. Tifa just seems like a good person, and strong person. My opinion on this will probably change back and forth, but for today my favorite is Red XII.
