    Cheers!

    Celes took the harder route to reach this final. No doubt about it.

    But she won't be getting the first vote.

    Sadly, I'm going to have to vote for Celes, as I just thought her story was more tragic and, lets face it, who can beat the opera scene? (Yes I admit it, I just love that dress she wore).

    So my vote is for General Celes Chere I'm afraid.

    Personally speaking I'm not a big fan of either of these two lovely ladies, nothing against them I just preferred other females and other characters in many other games to them.

    That being said, General Celes gets my vote here

    I love these two, I would've loved to have seen Quina make it though. I'm surprised how far s/he made it too! But my vote is going to go to Rydia.

    Not long now until voting ends, I'll extend it for an extra day due to being away... and because it's so tight as well! One vote can make the difference at this stage! Winner/tiebreaker will be announced on Sunday

    So this year's winner is...


    Rydia!

    Statistics after the Sixth Annual Final Fantasy Character Knockout Game

    • Rydia is the fourth character to win this annual game and is the first character from FF4 to do so.
    • She is also the first female winner. This was also the first time we had an all-female final.
    • Despite never winning a tournament Auron is still at the top of the rankings, in fact the Top 3 hasn't changed.
    • With the new ruling being two years old Rydia being newly ranked at 8th place means she's the lowest ranked character to take a year off.
    • Kefka started his honeymoon being ranked at 6th place, he'll start next year's game ranked at 9th place.
    • Auron is STILL the only character to get to the Quarter Final every single year - six years in a row!
    • Rikku from FF10 has done worse year upon year, she's gone from 17th to 19th, to 29th, to 39th, last year she was 42nd and now she'll rank 43rd.
    • Kefka aside, the highest ranked character to note register a single vote this year was Cid from FF9. He's only dropped twelve places as a result from 37th to 49th.
    • Laguna from FF8 was the highest ranked character to get knocked out of the first round, despite the shock exit he's only dropped two places from 4th to 6th.
    • As previously stated Sabin being a newer character added to the game only last year, and getting to the Quarter Finals mean he's rocketed through the rankings, he was ranked 127th and is now sitting in 70th place, a surge of 57 places.
    • Also stated earlier, out of the none "new" characters Aria from FF3 had the best game, she was ranked 101st place with 11 points, but has over doubled her tally this year getting 13 points and has rose 26 places in the rankings as a result, to 75th place.
    • There's a total of six characters this year who share the award of "lowest drop in the rankings", they are Tiamat from FF1, Firion from FF2, Sara from FF3, Selphie from FF8, Cid from FF9 and Larsa from FF12 and they have all dropped 12 places each.
    • Xande from FF3 hasn't got a single point in the last three years of the game! This is a key reason why he has been removed from next year's game.
    • This year we had 892 votes in the game, a slight increase from the 812 from last year. It's the most votes we've had since 2012 so many thanks to all of you for playing again, and perhaps if you know others on this forum that may find the game interesting maybe invite them next year? Thanks again and much love to you all!
