Character Battle IX Favouritism Bracket

By LUDWIG VON KOOPA - A happy world where Draven doesn't win.

If you want to see who I'd vote for in Round 1, click here. Unfortunately, reality didn't reflect who I'd like to win for the entire tournament at GameFAQs. So starting below are my Round 2 favouritism picks and then the rest of the tournament too, (Round 1 is in what I just linked — although I changed Ryu H. to Kefka!) I may provide comments if needed!

So, why is this important? Because characters are one of the best things about videogames, the way you personally involve yourself in and interact with characters is something unique to the medium. In fact, characters can sometimes be even more important than gameplay!

Round 2

Division 1

(1) Link
(13) Waluigi
(9) Yoshi


Link Always Wins!

(17) Captain Olimar
(5) Tharja
(8) Hero


I like Hero's design.

(25) Jak
(15) Ryu
(21) Jigglypuff


Division 2

(27) Dan Hibiki
(6) Lucina
(9) Professor Layton


This may change after I get Professor Layton vs. Ace Attorney.

(2) Phoenix Wright
(5) KOS-MOS
(11) Mewtwo

(3) Chrom
(15) Sub-Zero
(7) Bowser


Division 3

(27) Little Mac
(13) Miles Edgeworth
(19) Reyn


Poor Mac.

(2) Luigi
(5) Big Boss
(8) CATS

(16) Poison
(4) Kirby
(7) Wheatley


Division 4

(1) Solid Snake
(13) Captain Falcon
(10) N

(2) GlaDOS
(5) Ike
(8) Epona

(3) Shulk
(24) Slime
(7) Kefka


Division 5

(27) Prinny
(22) Viewtiful Joe
(19) Lugia
 

I don't actually like Lugia, besides Herman Cain referencing his movie.

(26) Raz
(5) Squirtle
(20) Ridley

(25) Kat
(4) Leon Kennedy
(12) Hades


Division 6

(27) Missile
(6) Pikachu
(10) Hal "Otacon" Emmerich


I refuse to acknowledge that Missile is from Ghost Trick and will instead delude myself into believing that it's the Missile from Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney.
 
(17) Scorpion
(14) Gilgamesh
(8) Groose

(25) Mr. Game & Watch
(15) Steve
(12) Pokémon Trainer Blue


Division 7

(27) Sandbag
(22) Catherine
(10) Seifer Almasy

(17) Miles "Tails" Prower
(14) Revolver Ocelot
(20) Palutena

(16) Tom Nook
(24) Claire Redfield
(21) Chun-Li


Division 8

(27) Fawful
(6) Vivi
(9) Ganondorf

I got major respect for Vivi after what he did in the actual tournament.

(17) Rayman
(5) Amaterasu
(8) Missingno

(16) Wario
(4) Pokémon Trainer Red
(7) Pit


Division 9

(1) Mega Man
(13) Travis Touchdown
(19) Jill Valentine


If he wasn't against Travis Touchdown, Mega Man would go very, very far.
 
(2) Zero
(23) Weighted Companion Cube
(11) Lyndis

(16) Zelda 
(24) Falco Lombardi
(7) Charizard

If it was just Wind Waker Zelda, she'd win.



Round 3

Division 1

(1) Link
(8) Hero

(21) Jigglypuff


Division 2

(6) Lucina
(2) Phoenix Wright
(7) Bowser


I think Bowser is my third-favourite character in the bracket, so this is unfortunate placing.


Division 3

(13) Miles Edgeworth
(8) CATS
(4) Kirby


Division 4

(13) Captain Falcon
(5) Ike
(24) Slime


Division 5

(27) Prinny
(5) Squirtle
(12) Hades

Remember when I said Kid Icarus: Uprising is amazing? I still mean that.


 

Division 6


(27) Missile
(8) Groose
(12) Pokémon Trainer Blue


Division 7

(27) Sandbag
(20) Palutena
(24) Claire Redfield


Division 8

(6) Vivi
(17) Rayman
(7) Pit


Division 9

(13) Travis Touchdown
(2) Zero
(24) Falco Lombardi




Round 4

(21) Jigglypuff
(2) Phoenix Wright
(4) Kirby

Ugh, this entire top third of the bracket! I love ALL of them. Why make me choose?


(5) Ike
(12) Hades
(27) Missile

Unfortunately, Missile may be cute, but... he's just an item. In Ace Attorney anyway.

(20) Palutena
(7) Pit
(13) Travis Touchdown



Round 5

(2) Phoenix Wright
(12) Hades
(13) Travis Touchdown

Yeah I pretty much had this result pre-determined! Not Hades, though. That's because the middle third of the bracket is really weak.


So in my world, Travis Touchdown is the best videogame character ever. I mean, I DID write I wanted him in Super Smash Bros. 4. This isn't new news!
If I were to list my Top 10 favourites (from the contest), it might look like...
  1. Travis Touchdown (No More Heroes)
  2. Phoenix Wright (Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney)
  3. Bowser (Mario)
  4. Kirby (Kirby)
  5. Jigglypuff (Pokémon)
  6. Miles Edgeworth (Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney)
  7. Palutena (Kid Icarus: Uprising)
  8. Pit (Kid Icarus: Uprising)
  9. Hades (Kid Icarus: Uprising)
  10. Mega Man (Mega Man)
So good job Nintendo, Capcom, and Grasshopper Manufacture!


This won't be the last article Ludwig is going to write involving GameFAQs's Character Battle IX. There's one more that has to be written... Look forward to it. It won't be bracket-related!


The article implied above never got written, but skip two years ahead and we have another GameFAQs favouritism bracket! For BEST GAME EVER!
Travis Touchdown has returned to a new game!
