    The 8th Annual Favourite Final Fantasy Character Knockout Game

    Sorry it took longer to post than I anticipated but welcome to my eighth annual Final Fantasy Character knockout game! I have 128 characters, from Final Fantasy I to Final Fantasy XV, and Final Fantasy Tactics all meshed in and spat out to form battles. Who will be victorious?

    Due to the ruling on the 5th Annual Games that the winner from the previous year will take the next year off, so this year we say goodbye to Beatrix from Final Fantasy 9, and welcome back Rydia from Final Fantasy 4!

    Here's the podium finishes each year thus far:
    The 1st Games 2011: Squall, 46 points | Sephiroth, 37 points | Shadow, 31 points
    The 2nd Games 2012: Vivi, 42 points | Beatrix, 36 points | Zidane, 32 points
    The 3rd Games 2013: Vivi, 26 points | Zidane, 25 points | Squall, 21 points
    The 4th Games 2014: Vivi, 37 points | Gilgamesh, 26 points | Laguna, 30 points
    The 5th Games 2015: Kefka, 36 points | Auron, 29 points | Edgar, 27 points
    The 6th Games 2016: Rydia, 35 points | Celes, 29 points | Quina, 25 points
    The 7th Games 2017: Beatrix, 28 points | Cid (Tactics), 24 points | Terra, 25 points


    I've decided after this year's game to remove a few characters again and consider some replacements, but we'll do that in a different thread after Round 1 finishes in a few weeks.

    So with Beatrix out and Rydia back and another year has passed since we got the nine new FF15 characters in, who is going to win this year? Next to each character I've put down the game they appeared in, followed by position each character is in tally wise, and their votes tally from the result of both years as well. In Round 2 onwards I'll also post their total tally this year. This is all for information purposes, if you're a statistical nerd like me. If that doesn't make sense, here's what Beatrix's name would look like, if she were playing this year:

    Beatrix (IX, 4th, 141)

    We added in some characters three years ago to freshen things up, so these characters will remain highlighted in blue to give them a bit of love, they are still quite new to the games due to being introduced later than everyone else so are still quite low on the rankings! The nine FF15 characters will be highlighted in red as well, to also highlight them for the same reasons.

    By the way, make sure you get voting in the Qualifiers for Shad's 2019 FF Rumble Game by clicking here - [Hidden link. Register to see links.]

    If you haven't played any of my FF Knockout Games in the past, here are the rules:

    The Rules
    1. To vote, simply check who is going against who and reply with your favourite character in each roundup, preferably in a column format.
    2. When a round finishes, if there are any tiebreakers, I'll post them up at the end. Tiebreakers are to be decided by listing them, and asking the question again about who is their favourite, the first response wins the tiebreak (eg. if the tiebreaker was Kefka vs Cloud, and the first poster to respond chooses Kefka, Kefka goes through to the next round).
    3. All these battles are chosen randomly, I've used a simple Excel spreadsheet and the "Rand" formula to help me make it fair and square. The only exceptions I've made is that there's no two characters from the same game going against eachother. I'm going to try and keep characters from the same games apart for as long as possible, although that may get difficult later.
    4. I'll keep these rounds open for around a week before posting the next one.
    5. Because Round 1 has 64 battles, I'll split it into four sections (so you'll see 16 battles today, 16 in the next update etc). Round 2 will have 32 battles and I'll split that into two sections. Round 3 onwards will be posted in the complete forms.
    6. Don't take this seriously, it's just a bit of fun. By all means debate why you love or hate certain characters, just be respectful of others feelings of those same characters.


    So without any further delay, here's the first part of Round 1...

    Round 1A
    Hope (XIII, 112th, 13) vs Sephiroth (VII, 27th, 72)
    Cid (IV, 48th, 44) vs Lilisette (XI, 110th, 14)

    Oh nice, I assumed this wasn't happening. I'll check it out in a bit.

    This is the first run since I've actually played FF1, 2, and 3. Also, 4 through 8 are relatively fresh in my memory. So that will make it more interesting from my perspective.

    ---------- Post added at 06:17 PM ---------- Previous post was at 05:20 PM ----------

    Sephiroth (VII, 27th, 72)
    Cid (IV, 48th, 44)
    Aranea (XV, 129th, 2)
    Barret (VII, 33rd, 65)
    Galuf (V, 30th, 68)
    Laguna (VIII, 7th, 116) ~guarantee you I would have voted Mustadio here in previous years
    Chaos (I, 94th, 22) ~on the other hand, Rinoa has gone from just another forgotten character to my least favorite in the entire franchise
    Papalymo (XIV, 94th, 22)
    Terra (VI, 5th, 139)
    Bahamut (I, 94th, 22) ~probably would have voted Zemus here in previous years
    Thancred (XIV, 96th, 21)
    Vivi (IX, 2nd, 52)
    Hojo (VII, 30th, 68)
    Celes (VI, 11th, 97)
    Krile (V, 78th, 26)
    Quistis (VIII, 51st, 43)

    Cid (VII, 13th, 95)
    Dycedarg (Tactics, 96th, 21) ! and I didn't even like Vincent on my replay really
    Wakka (X, 103rd, 17) Leon is probably my least favorite character in the first 8 games of the franchise after Rinoa.
    Cloud (VII, 28th, 71)
    Ovelia (Tactics, 46th, 47)
    Freya (IX, 37th, 57)
    Kefka (VI, 8th, 111)
    Sazh (XIII, 59th, 37)
    Stiltzkin (IX, 78th, 26)
    Rubicante (IV, 72nd, 28)
    Jecht (X, 41st, 51)
    Lenna (V, 63rd, 34)
    Kain (IV, 21st, 78)
    Ramza (Tactics, 33rd, 65)
    Seifer (VIII, 60th, 36) ! Another character I grew to appreciate that I didn't like before.
    Edgar (VI, 6th, 121)

    A lot of these paired unfamiliar names against characters from the games I just replayed, so I feel like I was pretty heavily biased heh.

    Round 1 Roundup

    Most Popular Characters - 21 characters lead the way so far, all with 5 points, but obviously this will open out as the game goes forward. I'll list them in Round 2 onwards due to how many people "lead" at the moment.

    Most Popular Characters (All Time) – Terra from FF6 has moved up from 5th to 4th, with Beatrix from FF9 moving downwards due to not being in the game this year. Celes of FF6 has pipped into the Top 10, knocking Squall of FF8 into 11th who didn't make it into Round 2.

    Lowest Drop in All Time Rankings – Marilith of FF1, Rafa of FF Tactics and Prishe of FF11 all got 0 points in this year's game and have currently all gone down 7 rankings each. In fact - one of those characters are going to be removed from next year's game. More on that in a different thread another time.

    Highest Rise in All Time Rankings – After an amazing first round, Bahamut of FF1 has gone up 14 rankings so far and is currently having his best game in 4 years. Can he go up any higher?

    Centenarians - We went from 5 Centenarians to 9 last year. We've had another 3 characters join them already from Round 1 - and they are Celes of FF6, Squall of FF8 and Cid of FF7. So that's 12 now! Once a character hits 200 points then we'll celebrate Double Centenarians, but that's 2-3 years from now I'd imagine.

    "Biggest Upsets" – How big an upset can you get than from the previous champion returning to action then getting defeated in Round 1! 2016 champion Rydia of FF4 got knocked out by Locke of FF6! Can you get a bigger upset than that? Yes you can!! Vincent of FF7, ranked 16th, was defeated by Dycedarg of FF Tactics, ranked 96th! That's a whooping 80 places!!

    [Hidden link. Register to see links.]

    Okay! Round 2 will be split into two parts over two weeks. Naturally, we'll start with Round 2A.
